Stately Homes of Wiltshire - Chapter 1 - waspabi - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Malfoy Manor has mould, dry rot and an infestation of unusually historical poltergeists. Harry Potter is on the case.

|| This is a new classic HP H/D fic that's everything you could want from that: repressed posh folks, a healthy dose of humor, and warmth seeping through it like sitting next to a fireplace. It also explicitly makes Harry and Hermione not-white, and references terrible 2000s fashion on the regular--really wonderful worldbuilding.

keep you in my focus - cumulus - GOT7 [Archive of Our Own]
Jackson is a variety star with a regular gig and Mark is his longtime VJ.

|| This is feels longer than its 10k: it's soft, and really satisfying. I really liked all the scenes with them being soft and unwound in each other's presence--that seems like what WOULD be the foundation Mark and Jackson's realtionship. The world feels pretty completely built-out; I enjoyed it a lot.

you make my heart beat (faster) - Chapter 1 - onyu - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Everything's going too fast. One step forward, and Seokjin's tendering his resignation from a company he's been servicing for eight years. Two steps, and he's going out for interviews, reviewing a job offer, signing a contract, on the first bus to Sallim-dong. Three steps, and he finds himself trapped in an elevator with an ex who ran away from him years ago and with his faith in humanity in tow.

Enter the agency's Chief Creative Officer, and everything slows the fuck down.

|| I really enjoyed this, and the double-plotline of Jin figuring out his goals next to the yoonjin plotline; some of it is probably weightier than it needs, but the author's familiarity with the actual job underpins it so well that I was with them the entire way. Admittedly--from what I remember, I read it a while ago. Enjoyed it enough that whatever sections I might've felt were throwing off the pacing didn't stick with me--what I remember is the sense of anxiety--I felt stressed about Jin getting the work done, about figuring out what was going on between Jin and Yoongi, about Jin doing something he loved in a way that put my heart in my throat and really worked as tension for me.

Terry likes Jack.

This seems to mystify the sad bastard. And Terry can't figure out why.

OR

A Guide to Being an Emotionally Stable, Independent Young Man: By Terry Beaumont, Jedi Master, for Jack Zimmerman, Padawan

|| This was really satisfying: people being people and trying their best, and sometimes messing up. The main and POV character is an OC, but he's really likeable, his perspective brings both insight and tension to the story, and I laughed a lot because his version of being an adult at 27 is really hashtag relatable.

There May Be Some Collateral Damage - Chapter 1 - metisket - Bleach, Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Ichigo’s been ordered to go undercover at a magic school to bodyguard a kid named Harry Potter, and this would be fine, except that he’s about as good at bodyguarding as he is at magic. And he considers it a good day, magic-wise, if he hasn’t set anything on fire.

|| I clicked on this thinking, "No way. NO WAY." but this was delightful and fun and really INTERESTING, the way watching a car crash that also takes out half a city block would be interesting. If somehow all the people in that city block were also evil.

Anyway, a really wonderful take on what Ichigo would do to the HP universe, and how his presence would change things. His outsider perspective is really aces.

(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding - Chapter 1 - buddenbrooks - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
“Seokjin, this is my son,” he says, “Yoongi.” There’s silence from the hillocks of cream-coloured duvet peaked on the enormous bed. The magazine lies face-down on the carpet; Seokjin recognizes a young film star on the front cover, pressed close to a shadowy male figure with pixels blurring his face. “Yoongi,” the older man says again, with the carefully diplomatic tone of a parent who lost patience about ten minutes after the birth of his child and has never quite regained it. “Sit up and meet your new gua - companion.”

“My new babysitter,” someone drawls from the centre of the bed.

|| I don't believe an irresponsible and disrespectful Yoongi, not really, not even for a second, but I WAS really interested in this, and was totally willing to handwave to find out how it would all be managed. Pretty well, turned out. There's a POV switch in the middle, but I think it's actually pretty necessary for making the developments believable and Yoongi sympathetic at all. Liked the ending--feels right--but I simultaneously very much want the epilogue where things are a tad bit sunnier even and people kiss on the mouth. (Should be said, I believed this CHARACTER, by and large, just. Yoongi-wise...mostly a passing resemblance.)

Solace - Chapter 1 - MotionlessMuse - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Yoongi was bad at verbalizing his feelings. If he were honest with himself he was bad at understanding them, too, but something was wrong with him and all he wanted was to fix it. Somewhere along the way, Jimin came to be a bigger part of his life than he ever imagined.

|| Very AU where Jimin has an ED and Yoongi has depression, but a slow slow crawl and although the ending was easier than it might be, it felt right for the fic--something looking at hard stuff through the lens of these two characters and finding a way to make it hopeful for people. Kind of felt put through the wringer, though, and not the most graceful prose, but I did find something in it really satisfying and kind of sweet-hearted. Oh, I guess this is H/C, huh. Huh.

The Wildly Reinterpreted Chapter 700 Naruto Fic (CHAPTER 1 - Bolt)
He knelt on the linoleum floor of his not-quite-prison and realized he not only needed to have a baby, he kind of wanted one. He wanted to have something, what, innocent? He wanted something to protect and fight for, something to lead the future with. And not just that. He wanted that…parent thing. The thing where you look at a baby and think, holy shit, I made that. He wanted the tiny fragile baby that grows into an inconsolable shrieking nightmare that grows into a loud demanding beast of curiosity and then a laughing ball of energy that would make gross faces at Sasuke and say, ugh, Dad.

|| Someone rewrites Naruto to make the ending make more sense, and explains where all those babies came from, when clearly those particular people were not making babies together.

At least, not in the traditional way. In which Sasuke is a nerd, and an asshole, and an asexual who wants babies, so he makes up a new jutsu for it. Comes with both plot and really wonderful dealing with their combined traumas without sinking under the weight of it. WIP. (God, the author must have an actual name that is not the tumblr name. What is it. /o\)

Some tense shifts in the earlier chapters (very odd, the writing is otherwise really strong) but it works itself out, thankfully.

Think Once, Think Twice - Chapter 1 - Fahye - Brooklyn Nine-Nine (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
"I," she says. "I need a cigarette."

"And now she descends into smoking?" Jake says, clutching at his chest in what must be an automatic version of his usual jackassery. He gives a weak cackle. "I can't believe you've hidden such a filthy habit from me, Amy Santiago, you are not the woman I married. Last night. Apparently."

Amy stares at him.

Slowly, Jake's face goes the same appalling shade of off-white as his abused dress shirt.

|| IT'S DONE. IT'S DONE, AND I LOVE IT. The voices and pacing are terrific, the backstory is delightful, Peralta falling even more for Amy is believable BUT BACKGROUNDED because this fic is ABOUT AMY, whose characterization is SO INTERESTING AND FLAWED AND WONDERFUL, and it's just as funny and off-beat as the show, while managing the same sense of sincerity and true emotional beats that are the show at its finest.

“Well, if you’re making people breakfast now, I’m more than happy to accept,” Shitty says brightly, hoping to cajole a smile out of Jack.

Jack smacks away Shitty’s hand when he tries to steal some bacon. “I’m not,” Jack says, scowling. “I’m teaching that freshman how to get protein into his diet.”

“Which one?” Shitty asks, already knowing the answer.

-----

It is a secret that Jack looks out for Bittle, until it really isn't.

Helix - Chapter 1 - Saras_Girl - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
The sky outside the windows of Gryffindor Tower glows with soft gold, vivid pink and liquid orange as the winter sun climbs above the horizon, creeping lazy tendrils into the eighth-year boys’ dormitory where Harry is curled on the brightest windowsill, gazing silently into the grounds and attempting, without much success, to put his socks on.

It is well past seven, and he thinks he promised to follow the others down to breakfast several minutes ago, but he can’t quite seem to drag his eyes away from the slowly-waking landscape.

|| An eighth-year semi-redemption fic (Draco is mostly already redeemed). Not doing new things with the trope--Draco and Harry are assigned a long-running project together because they got detention, they bond--but comfortable and satisfying. (Snape-positive.)

Growing up is weird.

Growing up is even weirder when you're Choi Junhong.

|| That's basically the fic. That and the author's note: "This story contains underage characters exploring and experiencing their sexuality in a realistic way." Most of the sex doesn't happen until Zelo is 17, I think--but that is Korean 17, so. Heads up. It's largely not explicit, but it is clear it happens a lot. Lots of working through internalized homophobia, but it isn't overblown, and achey in a way I really appreciate sometimes.

Jackson’s never had a ton of sense, which is probably why he was walking around trying to pet strange dogs and got himself bit. Thing is, it’s a full moon, and he’s starting to feel kinda funny...comeback is gonna suck.

|| I really like Jackson in this: he's that very fandom mixture of sweet frat boy, but I do think Jackson comes pretty damn close to being sweet frat boy IN THE REAL LIFE. Not always stunningly paced, and there are a couple of decisions JB makes that ... aren't totally believable, but the Jackson voice and the sheer FUN of this is worth it.

(after a while) you learn - Chapter 1 - curledupkitten (chanyeol) - EXO (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Baekhyun's voice is rough and raw. He screams instead of singing, sometimes, and he cracks when he has to shift pitch. He's completely untrained.

Joonmyun has heard stronger voices. He works with stronger voices every day. But something about Baekhyun's… is sticky. Memorable. It worms in through his ears and tunnels into his brain, and Joonmyun forgets to clap, for a few moments after Chanyeol and Baekhyun go silent after the first number, because he's trying so hard to catalogue the sound.

|| The one where Suho is a closeted producer, and Baekhyun is a singer and kind of a jerk, but they fall in love. Really good development, as is par for this author, so although I feel silly typing that first sentence, it's as apt as it gets. It's also, really, about Suho coming out--to himself and to his friends--and deciding he can have happiness, that he's worth it, even though he's going to anger or disappoint his family. Lots of really great cameos and background character work, including girls, which is REALLY NICE. Agree with c'est_what--not as strong or driven as the Jeju Island fic, but I liked it a LOT.

Or: the one where Clint does something nice for Wade, and Wade decides to never let him go.

"So. The asshole is here again," Jongdae says, as Joonmyun comes out of the staff-room, tucking his striped short-sleeved button-up into his jeans. "I nudged him toward table seven."

|| I don't know if I saved this already (or saved it on Ao3?? UNKNOWN), but I read this fic with my heart in my throat, and on my phone, and I think that's probably why it comes up unsaved. This is rough: Joonmyun is out only to himself, and there is a lot--A LOT--of angst, about his attraction to Chanyeol, his settling to a life of no love, his relationship with Chanyeol--and so forth. It's very well done, so it's painful not in that it's like, oh no, angst, but in that, at least for me, I think a lot of queer kids would recognize. Kind of fucked me up all day though, ngl.

I do think I've saved this before. Whatever, I'm saving both links.

celestial mechanics - Lirazel - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
It was as close to perfect as a plan could be. Which is to say: not quite.
 
Myungsoo had plans and Howon had a dream, but the future is never that simple, no matter how certain it had seemed.

|| I'm too tired to give this a proper save, but here goes: long, satisfying, good. ABO that reads mostly like a figuring-out-soulbond story (which is why it worked for me so well), but warning with the worldbuilding: its founding conceit is that people can't resist heats, and so the soulbond is instigated by Hoya and Myungsoo having non-consensual sex (for both parties). Both of them are messed up over it, but I DON'T think the fic really deals with how horrible of a world that would be, and sometimes it was distracting, a sick jolt of oh GOD that is AWFUL. Part of the fic's interest--especially at the end--is Hoya and Myungsoo's interest in being activists against the stereotypes etc, but it feels a little tacked on.

Over all though, a really sweet, satisfying story about people falling in love. Really, really romantic: growing up, growing into each other, learning (and wanting) to make decisions together. Additional warning for two scenes of parental abuse, not extended or graphic.

there are so many ghosts on this island. maybe that's why do kyungsoo has come: so his personal ghosts can get lost among them.

Not much happens, but, as c'estwhat said, it never drags or feels like time's being marked: it takes time because it HAS time. The relationship development is so, so satisfying, and there were a couple of places where I worried curledupkitten was going to go in a melodramatic, easy direction, and they never did.

His Fate Will Be Unlearned - Chapter 1 - scifigrl47 - The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Tony Stark spent his childhood making weapons, filling the hole his father left in the world when he succumbed to alcohol, grief, and his own demons. At the age of fifteen, he ran away from home, and made it as far as MIT before all of his responsibilities caught up to him. Now seventeen, he just wants to finish his degree and escape from everything connected to the Stark name.

Steve Rogers crashed into the icy North Atlantic in the 1940's, sacrificing himself to save the world. He never expected to wake up, and now that he has, he's not sure he's glad. The US Army has other plans for him, but for now, Steve is slowly learning to live life in the 21st century, and taking classes at Boston College. He's beginning to suspect that there is no escape.

Boston College is on the T's Green Line. MIT is on the Red. The two lines meet at the Park Street Station, and so will Steve and Tony.

|| I lost my whole morning/afternoon to reading this--it's gripping, and really--emotionally rough in parts. Obie is just as bad as in canon, but it's fascinating to see everyone get to where they got in canon, through this different path. I think the characters are pretty skewed--but it's mostly through a different sort of emotional depth than the movies give them; more seriousness, less camp. A meaty, heartwrenching read.

Warnings: Obie, as stated, is emotionally and physically abusive, as is his son; Tony is a precocious and sexually active 17 year old; Howard Stark is an alcoholic; includes vivid descriptions of panic attacks and PTSD. Like I said, it's rough, although none of these are the focus of the story.

In which Stiles goes along with one of Derek’s plans and ends up in an alternate universe as a result. He should’ve known better. He did know better, actually, and that means he has no one to blame but himself.

“Laura wants to lure the kid in with food and kindness and make a pet of him, like a feral cat. Derek wants to have him arrested for stalking. They’re at an impasse. (And the rest of the family is staying emphatically out of it in a way that suggests bets have been placed.)”

|| As good as all the saves on Pinboard are making it seem--long, plotty, interesting. The alternate-universe characters are all interesting recasts of the show-universe, and it deals with that Stiles--and really anyone in the show--are probably dealing with extensive mental issues (here PTSD, among others). This Stiles is perhaps a bit too clever? And exceedingly good at manipulating others. But I've seen all of two episodes of the show, what do I know.

Further Materials Toward a Theory of the Man-Child – The New Inquiry
Like the nice guy from your grad-school program who tries to cover up his hurt feelings by concocting a general theory that explains why he never got a text after his one-night stand, the book portrays the Young-Girl as vain, frivolous, and acquisitive. She serves the traditional female role of reproducing the population and social order, but here, the social order is corrupt. Therefore, Tiqqun suggests, their intervention requires an ironic performance of misogyny. The question remains: Why is misogyny their only option? And why are so many ­thoughtful people ready to accept that a layer of irony suffices to turns hateful language into the basis of a sound critique?

We believe that Tiqqun has mistaken its object.

|| An EXCELLENT essay, and one that rang true--not only for ManChildren in others, but for the ManChild in myself, who shies away from conviction like it's leprous. Really, really interested in the ending.

|| Well, yes, hello marriage of convenience, yes I will yes. AU, so you can come at it only barely knowing canon--like myself, although I do think that knowing it might have filled in the details of what the main big-bad was doing, but it was fine; that's not the fic's emotional center.

Book & Bell - SeriousMistakes (TruckThat) - Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle [Archive of Our Own]
An AU where Kurogane is (mostly) the son of a small-town baker and Fai is... not. Also featuring wizards, raisin muffins, curses, an abandoned house, and a series of terrible mistakes.

|| Oh my GOD, this is INCREDIBLE. The author notes that this owes a lot to the DWJ Howl's Moving Castle, and it does, it does, but it's also brilliant in and of itself, and the Fai and Kurogane here are completely AU and completely themselves.

It’s Just That Any One of Us Is Half Without Another One Is You - Chapter 1 - Branch - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
An AU in which all the character development of part one gets its due: Kakashi finds another way, Sasuke does not leave the Leaf, Itachi remains a villain, no one is a carbon copy of a previous generation, Sakura grows up to be terrifying, Sasuke finds his way back to family, and Naruto wins all hearts. Featuring Team Seven fluff, filling in the time-skip, and a rather different second half. Drama, Angst, Romance, Fluff, Action, Occasional Porn.

|| The beginning is rather blatant about it being A Fix-It, Gosh, the Canon Is So Annoying, but once it gets out from under the resentment, it's a really satisfying, plotty au. The ot3 is rather minimalized--not the author's biggest strength--but I spent all day reading this happily.

Harry thinks "Why is Malfoy working in a coffee shop in muggle London?" is a much simpler question than, "Are you going to accept that auror offer and, if you don't, what will you do?"

|| A post-war fic in the long-standing tradition of post-war fics: Harry doesn't know what to do with his life, Malfoy is reformed, love blossoms. But MORE THAN THAT, it's a lovely piece about growing up, about realizing that "both" is often the more accurate descriptor of the world than "either", and Ron, Hermione, Ginny, and Narcissa are all believable people, without being horrible for the sake of Creating Drama. It's really, really lovely, and good in the way H/D is good, now, like hot chocolate. (Not epilogue-compliant.)

tongueincheeky: The Extremely Exhaustive Evgeni Malkin Primer: Part 1
That adorable lovechild of a hound dog and a muppet is Evgeni Vladimirovich Malkin (Евге́ний Влади́мирович Ма́лкин), but mostly he just goes by Geno. (Russians refer to him as "Zhenya", which is a nickname for Evgeni, and his teammates sometimes call him "G".) He's a forward and usually a center for the Pittsburgh Penguins as well as their alternate captain. He is also, arguably, the best hockey player in the world. Which is to say that "the best hockey player in the world" is a stupid argument/title because it depends on what you look for in hockey player. But if you are going to try to name the very best player in the world, he's going to come up and be a serious frontrunner. Because he's pretty awesome at everything. And he's a sincerely excellent human being.

EVGENI MALKIN FOR ALL THE AWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARDS

Oh wait, HE ALREADY HAS THEM. Ok, he doesn't make me QUITE fan myself as hard playing hockey as PKane does (I'M SORRY; KANER'S HANDS ARE CRIMINAL; THE WORLD IS ROUND) but HOLY FUCK GOOD HOCKEY. The two goals chibirhm highlights literally had me covering my mouth and groaning.

There are four reasons for kidnapping Tony Stark. Tony's sick of all of them. Well, there's potentially a fifth, but it's highly unlikely that Captain America will suddenly fulfill THAT fantasy. Tony's deeply disappointed about that.

Steve Rogers, as always, is oblivious. At least, that is, until someone who isn't him kidnaps Tony. Then he's just pissed.

You watch a glowing jade-green point move into the pale violet firing-arc of a twin-linked sentry cannon and disappear. You watch as a tide of purple dots drowns a single sky-blue mote atop the tallest tower. You watch as a scarlet and a teal light, so close they’re almost one, blink out together.

I feel like that collection of titles gives you an idea of the degeneration of this thing, plot-wise, and also a much better summary of this fic than the actual summary.

Modern-Day High School AU. It’s not until Hank realises half the class are glancing towards the back of the classroom with something like nerves and something like schadenfreude that he finds out Alex Summers is back.

Basically everyone’s got mental health problems in this and I think at least 20k of it was produced under antidepressant-induced mania last summer. Experimenting with writing styles so five different POVs. I’ve deliberately fucked with ages and friendships and familial relationships for both the movies and the comics. Other than that... this is stupidly long, and a bit ridiculous, and I’m really sorry (all I wanted was to write a cracky fic where Emma and Hank were BFFs. Whyyyyy etc).

I don't even know how to express all my feelings for this. paperclipbitch moves the story effortlessly between points of view, everyone is broken and surviving and not romanticized, every time I thought "oh, whoops, I guess the kids are being back-burned?" I was proven wrong, and basically I read it in one sitting while I should have been doing other things, despite my lack-of-need for X-Men right now.

pandagon.net - it's the eye of the panda, it's the thrill of the bite
The result is that women's freedom and options are subtly constrained in all sorts of ways. Want to be a music nerd while female? Since the literal first step of walking in the door is emotionally fraught, even starting out and seeing if you like it is often a step that women aren't going to take. Think you might be into reading comic books? Many women will never find out, because the obstacles of men gawking and acting like assholes outweigh the long-term rewards of finding some titles to get into. Want to get into an atheist forum online? Be prepared to told in many ways, over and over, that you're not wanted as anything but a sucking-and-fucking machine. A lot of men tell women in these situations to suck it up and just do it, but that seriously misunderstands human nature. We want to do these things---go record shopping, buy comics, join forums---for the same reason men do, to have fun. If it's not fun, we're not going to do it. The men who harass women understand this perfectly well, which is why they do it.

Your name is Dave Strider and you are 26 years old.

You have just gotten engaged.

The problem being that you have just gotten engaged to your best male friend in a furious fit of stupidity, champagne, one-upmanship and a weird warm-glowy feeling that occasionally (or more than occasionally) rolls around in the pit of your stomach and makes you act like a moron. You have, over the past 13 years and much careful experimentation, dubbed this “The Egbert Effect”.

You would like to state, for the record, that you are definitely, completely and 100% NOT A HOMOSEXUAL.

As Bro carefully describes to you what, as the DJ, he’s going to play at the reception (almost entirely a medley of Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha), you carefully nurse a Rock Star and vodka like a 16 year old girl who just popped her cherry at prom and try to figure out what the fuck happened over the past decade or so to land you in this mess.

Athelas - astolat - Thor (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
There was a sharp and bitter edge crept into the words, a reminder that not all was well: that Thor still had a brother, but not a friend.

|| This slides wonderfully back and forth between catharsis and angst and hotness and silliness--a fun romp (WITH DINOSAURS) that is more insightful than it has any business being. Also, this Tony is ridiculous.

ragandboneshopoftheheart: FIC: If you can't be touched (Jesse Eisenberg/Andrew Garfield) (RPF) (rating: adult)
Andrew and Jesse are cast as the leads in an adaptation of classic gay novel Giovanni's Room. Over months of filming and sharing an apartment in Paris, the overlap between their feelings and their characters' becomes hard for them to handle.<br />

God, I love crushes. UNRESOLVED SEXUAL TENSION, I WANT TO GO TO THERE. Also known as the one where Jesse and Andrew play tragic gay lovers in Paris.

Time to Grow - zarah5 - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
In which you'll find chess dates which aren't dates (or maybe Charles is wrong about that). -- Based on First Class, this turns (slightly) AU during the beach scene.<br />
<br />
How Charles and Erik might've discussed their moral differences, and fallen together along the way. The ending feels a little--rushed, given the slowness of the rest, but at the same time, I'm willing to accept that there are risks being taken, jumped into. A well-thought-out and developed happy ending, and lord knows I want it for them.

Some Assembly Required - valtyr - Marvel Adventures - Fandom [Archive of Our Own]
His hands, his hands were slimmer and the wrists were narrower - he turned them over to look at the palms, and felt a lurch of relief at the sight of his callouses, arranged in the familiar pattern. He held them up in front of his face, focusing on the roughness and old scars, the smooth patch at the base of his right thumb from where he'd burned it on an engine at the age of six. They were still his hands, really, just - a different shape.<br />
<br />
I love it. A fusion of two Avengers timelines, and Tony is both discomfited in his new body and totally willing to take it out for a spin. Alongside cameos by most of the team--fucking love the Hulk, btw--and one of the most hilarifying supervillian plots ever.

Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea - JoeLawson - Hawaii Five-0 (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
To be honest, Danny had started out looking forward to swimming in the clear, clean tropical waters, chasing colorful fish and exploring the area around the eight islands with Gracie. What he hadn't taken into account was that he'd been made for the cold Atlantic sea and was used to the polluted East Coast waters... and the absolutely last thing he'd expected had been the effects of the lower oxygen levels around Hawaii.<br />
<br />
LOLZ! Danny is a mermaid! Only, this is a crack idea played for srs, and the worldbuilding, oh, the worldbuilding, honey do it to me harder. See the above quote for proof. Plus, it's plotty, well-characterized, and has great development. Loved.<br />
<br />
(Also, I kept thinking this was that other fic where Danny turns into a prehistoric shark, but uh. It's not. This is just such an awesome fandom that we have two Danny-is-a-shark fics.)

Synthesis (Scenes from an AU) - starlady - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
But the students see it all; they couldn't help but see it, given that the Professor and Magneto don't even call their students by the same names. The Professor is always calling people by their given names, at least until his students work up the courage to correct him. Magneto always asks, the first time you're sitting in his classroom studying history or French or are out on the playing field or in the gymnasium trying to tell yourself that it's well known that Magneto promised the Professor that he wouldn't let anyone die in phys ed, what you call yourself.

|| Yes, this is that brilliant. I'm only halfway through, and I just want to soak in it. AU where, STILL post-beach divorce, Erik and Charles are  lovers and best friends and run a school. The author states that this is not a fix-it, but an AU, and funnily enough, I get that distinction.

A Hundred Visions and Revisions - kaydeefalls - X-Men: First Class (2011), Doctor Who (2005), Avengers (Comic) [Archive of Our Own]
In which the CIA and FBI indulge in some inter-agency snooping, Erik hates Cerebro, a new mutant is found, and Charles is very distracting.<br />
<br />
The summary is flippant, but the story very much is not. A fascinating look at power structures and morality, alongside a deftly built hum of ust, so gloriously resolved. Also, the secondary characters are AWESOME--I love them all the time.

untie the balloons around my neck and ground me - electrumqueen - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
"It's better here," Alex says abruptly, drumming his fingers along his windowsill. With you, he doesn't say.

Darwin blinks. "Well," he says, "yeah. Obviously."

Or: how Alex Summers grew up, got a boyfriend, and survived the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Reparo
Voldemort's final defeat does not mean Harry Potter's troubles are over; far from it. In the aftermath of war, he returns to a Hogwarts that is fractured and divided, but this is no break that can be fixed with a spell. New owls, fading scars, surprising alliances-- and along the way, the hardest task of all, to live with it.. 

|| A wonderful post-DH eighth-year; it's Draco/Harry, but it's also about surviving, and keeping in character with the slightly-angsty, kind of rage-filled, but over-all practical, self-sacrificing, and sometimes stupidly certain characterization. Very, very much worth the read.

believe it or not, charles has a well-thought-out moral philosophy. he doesn’t follow it. but he has thought it out.

alternatively: charles and erik douche it up in amsterdam.

I know I updated this tag, once, but maybe it didn't flow over into Pinboard. The second summary is more accurate; the whole thing is way more compelling than either summary.

1stclass_kink: Prompt Post: ROUND ONE
Alwaysagirl!Hank. I want alwaysagirl in ALL THE UNIVERSES, so this is not a surprise, but I especially want it done like this--where it looks at how the misogyny would change the character--and keep them the same--and I love it. Read this for that, if nothing else. Honestly, the Alex/Hank felt more like a side-story to the character study. (Honestly, I was a little disappointed by it ending there. I almost would've liked it better as gen, or as a piece that moved past that first moment because, as well handled as it is, it still felt slightly reductive. Delightful anyway.)

Draco Malfoy is waiting for his real life to begin, and it appears that he’s not the only one. Coffee, charity, and the wisdom of the elderly.

Summary: He signs his correspondences to the police as Sherlock H, as he always has, and he signs his letters to his parents as SH -- they can take what they will from the S. He signs his school assignments S. Holmes, and manages to get away with it because he is the only Holmes in his classes. FtM!Sherlock.
