E-9 - 100demons - Ookiku Furikabutte | Big Windup! [Archive of Our Own]
This is it, he thinks, a hot sticky humid summer night at a baseball field, dressed in shorts and his sleep shirt, listening to the sound of Tajima’s laughter echo in the night for the last time.

It’s always comes down to this, in the end.

|| I love love Hanai/Tajima, and this gets all the things about them I love right--Tajima being all arrogance and easy acceptance of his own anxieties, insightful and joyfully insistent on it, almost so much so that his insights sound like simplifications; Hanai, overthinking and worried and just-that-bit-jealous just-that-bit-awed but so so in love with Nishiura and with baseball and easily embarassed but fundamentally, when it comes down to it, as brave as anything. Ugh. Clutches chest, etc.

Though Oft We Break - o2doko - Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle, CLAMP - Works [Archive of Our Own]
They have their revenge, and the constant threat looming over all their lives has finally passed - but both Kurogane and Fai still have a lot of healing left to do. Fortunately, neither of them has to do it alone.

[Set between the final battle and the end of the series, during their convalescence in Clow Country.]

|| I loved this, but just as it captures the way everyone talks sideways at each other, leaving room for the big huge Issues they all carry around, it captures CLAMPs complete disregard for satisfying endings, lol. So--not unexpected, just. Gosh darn it!!

A for effort, H-A-W-K-E-Y-E, Kate says as soon as she frees herself from her harness. They really need to come up with a real sign instead of just fingerspelling all the time. Maybe miming drawing a bow, then pointing to the eyes. Something cool. You have to get over your boner for that boomerang arrow.

"Did you just sign 'angry penis'?" Sam says, distracted from his unresolved sexual tension with Natasha.

"Whatever," Kate says. She flips her hair. "I'm learning."

|| I love this Hawkeye so much--lowkey anti-authority, highkey bisexual and also here to give people a hard time. I really want to read the comics, gosh.

a nice girl, slightly dilettanteish - transversely - Chihayafuru [Archive of Our Own]
“I am by nature given to flights of extreme perspicacity. It’s your turn to add a flavor, don’t make it messy. It has to retain this air of delicacy, since it’s a flavor expressing Snowmaru’s winter melancholy. Don’t think that simply because he is a snowman, he isn’t prone to winter melancholy, that is a rookie mistake.”

|| Parts of this are hard to follow, but I really enjoyed Shinobu--incisive, vain, insecure, aware of herself as a prodigy but turned-topsy by the ephemeral nature of that term. And weird. Which is IMPORTANT. I also really liked her interactions with the adults--that she takes herself totally seriously, but they can see how that seriousness is letting herself down, limiting her.

These past two years, Taichi has worked so not to be a coward.  To not take the easy way out, to be a man who could stand by his convictions, fight for his place.

But he can’t fight this.

You Are the Best - tricatular - 2NE1 [Archive of Our Own]
Beside the bed is a small collection of flowers and balloons, a fuzzy teddy bear, and a few cards. Most of them are from fans, but right at the front there’s a big card from her groupmates, attached, inexplicably, to an oversized stuffed cockatoo.

Frowning, she picks up the card: it’s full of ridiculous cartoon drawings and get-well wishes, with a PS at the bottom in Bom’s handwriting: parrots are the best dancers in the animal kingdom…except for you!

|| I really liked the way the girls had each other's backs in this; this moment, in particular, felt like them in a way that's hard to articulate. (Bommmmieeeeeeeeeee!!!!) Shippy, but only barely.

On the Trouble of Cynics, Mistresses, and the Rain - marlowe_tops - Les Misérables - Victor Hugo [Archive of Our Own]
Enjolras transferred his scowl from the rain to his friend in bed. “You’ve only just awoken. Don’t start one of your tirades.”

Grantaire ignored this, as was his habit. “I have never known an early riser of good temperament. They are eternally judgmental, sour folk, and this temperament stains everything they do. Priests are early risers, and what good does it do them? They scourge themselves and count up the sins of everyone around them. Bakers, too, are early risers. I have never known a sorrier profession than bakers. Every one I have ever met is red and bloated with flour and ill-spirits.”

The Libation Bearer - kenaz - Les Misérables - Victor Hugo [Archive of Our Own]
The silence that followed was not disagreeable; it was merely a lapse in which each man marshaled his thoughts. Well, Enjolras marshaled his thoughts. He could not speak to what Grantaire’s mind got up to in its many unoccupied moments.  He had only just come to that conclusion when Grantaire did, in fact, upend his expectations.

“I would fight with you, you know, if only you asked it of me.”

|| Asks a BIT more knowledge of the book than I honestly have, but oh, Enjolras is such an idealistic douche, and also--oh, revolution, how you twist people turnways. I have more feelings about the way Les Mis is put together as a narrative than I do about most of the characters, but.... It does not skimp on trying to make the big problems--revolution, death, love, religion, morality--relatable.

sparklyfanta: XxxHolic Fic!
Still, Tezuka decided, it was worth speaking to Watanuki for two reasons. Firstly, Shinohara had spoken to him more than any other student on an individual level. Secondly, he was friends with Doumeki Shizuka, and Doumeki Shizuka had been one of the boys to discover Yagami Midori’s bones, buried beneath a hydrangea in a park not far from the school. Tezuka wondered if it was worth betting on the identity of the other boy involved in the discovery.

cymbalism: fic up: the beginning of knowledge
You know how it's abundantly clear Erik and Charles have slept together within, oh, 36 hours of knowing each other in the movie? This is my take on that deleted scene. Charles is drawn in so entirely it's as though magnetic force affects him, too. It's more than expected—intoxicating, alarming. Mutation in all its forms has fascinated Charles for years, but he never dared even imagine a thing like Erik.<br />
<br />
Excellent. Tight, tension-filled, and flawless characterization. Ever since reading seperis's meta, I'm finding pieces that have Charles using his telepathy like breathing feel like a personal metric for characterization, and this does it WELL. This just might be personal canon.

1stclass_kink: Prompt Post: ROUND THREE
Erik is kneeling on the bed, resting back on his heels, clad in nothing but his own skin. Charles takes a moment to appreciate the view before his gaze snaps to the strange object held in the other man's hands. "Is that, is that a camera?" he asks incredulously.<br />
<br />
"Like it, do you?" And there's that ever present smirk on Erik's face as he holds the camera out admiringly, knowing all too well that it must appeal to the scientist in Charles. He can't help being a little captivated by it though, it's too big to be classed as portable but it's certainly an improvement on Kodak's latest creation.<br />

Trying To Throw Strikes - Fic: From the waters and the wild
"And, you know, tension is nice and all, but I don't even think they got off the coast guard boat without something happening. Because that was instant," says the author. --Not sure I buy it, as meta, Erik is all, WOT MY BOUNDARIES, but! THIS IS GREAT SMUT YES

oceansex: [fic post] Between Rage and Serenity
“I saw me, worming my way into a place you don’t think I belong.”

The aftermath of the hup-yep-they're-totally-in-love scene. You know which one. (Also, I'm kind of amused that I've had to create two entirely new tags for the type of sex in this fandom: hot-fast-burning-yes-you-yes-you-you-you and the way we're all obsessed with Charles's love of Erik's mind.)

1stclass_kink: Prompt Post: ROUND ONE
Erik has had Charles in his head before, but not like this.

For this trope, I'm really, really, enjoying the development. It's not the immediate--no, they're not really sure what's happening, no one's vomiting, it's just weird. Also, interesting characterization of Erik. Softer edges than I think he probably would have, but I especially like the way he interacts with Raven.

1stclass_kink: Wisteria
“My friend,” he calls Erik, as if the ability to name him so—as if Erik himself—is a gift Charles longs to cherish ‘til old age.

Erik realizes, too late, his mind isn’t the only thing that’s betrayed him.

The characterization in this is killer. As is the smut. Oh my god, internets, I just saw First Class, and I NEED Erik/Charles LIKE I NEED BREATHING, PLZ TO GET ON THAT FANDOM, UNNNNNNNNNNNF.

tsn_kinkmeme: [PART SIX]
Eduardo thinks they're having hatesex--why does Mark seem to think they're making love?

I have mixed feelings about this. The situation is surprisingly believable most of the way through, and then I'm not convinced by the ending. I don't know how the anon could've finished it otherwise, though. It catches the feeling well enough.

indecentexposed: FIC: if this ground gives way (i just hope that you'll catch me). (1/4)
I brought this on myself, Jesse thinks, and it’s true. The studio had been perfectly willing to arrange separate apartments.

Granted, it had been Andrew’s idea. He’d been the one to pull Jesse aside in the midst of the discussion on Boston-area logistics and suggest that perhaps they should be roommates. It was a proposition that Jesse, being of at least partially sound mind, would ordinarily have politely but firmly rejected from any other person he’d known exactly three weeks, but Andrew had been all wide eyes and hope and character development and great to have the company and please, Jess, after which point Jesse would have agreed to a number of significantly more ludicrous proposals.

Jesse is neurotic; they both research their characters; there is cohabitation. Cute.

5/6, part 1.

Mark leaves the 1 million party to go find Eduardo.

|| Trust that that idea is handled brilliantly, and you have an idea of the mood and execution.

aljbooafajklnvocladwdfse. These boys hurt me so BAD and I LOVE it. Missing scene from the movie is exactly what I wanted.<br />

It's Mark's fault.

weatherby: Red
Added scene after the Quidditch match in Azkaban; soft and sweet with adolescence--similarly painful and frustrating. Stupid teenagers.
