Soft Spot - nivo - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Yoongi doesn't particularly care for the well-being of the new trainee. It's just that he doesn't particularly care for prison, either, and leaving the kid to fend for himself would probably constitute criminally negligent homicide.

|| This is so fucking soft and full of promise, I think I remember making a pained noise on the subway when I read it. Nivo is so good at writing fics that speak to tenderness and that cast forward at the hopes one person has for another.

Yoongi watches out for the delicate new kid.

Finally Sorn looked up, holding her hand palms flat against the frets. Sorn’s face was soft and open but Seunghee knew that Sorn was even better at playing her part than Seunghee was.

|| This fic is tiny but it takes me apart in all the best ways; putting a quiet voice to the small uncertain sadness I've been carrying about CLC and not understanding what is up with them, and how they're doing, and this takes the two softest members and has them help each other back to this hard, hard job they've found themselves in. All in about 500 words, god, I love it so much.

Social Animals - nivo - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
But the next time Hoseok falls asleep in yet another uncomfortable dressing room chair with his head held carefully to protect his already styled hair – Jeongguk can't help but think he would've made one fine court lady back in the day – Jeongguk is there, alert and ready. Hoseok must realize what he's up to – he always does, usually before Jeongguk himself could even make sense of his own actions – but he doesn't comment on it; doesn't tease Jeongguk the way Jimin and Yoongi do whenever they catch him 'playing hyung,' as Jimin once put it with a sappy grin, messing up Jeongguk's hair just to be annoying.

It's not like that, anyway.

|| Goddddddd, this is the fic that convinced me Junghope was something I loved--it packs an emotional wallop for something so short (barely 1k!). All about protectiveness and growing up and knowing something is waiting for you, even if all it is right now is your hand in someone's hair.

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.

“Are you comfortable?” Seokjin asks gently, scooting towards the wall so Jungkook would have a little more wiggle room. Jungkook nods into his shoulder.

|| Touch-starved Jungkook is skittish with Bangtan, but they're willing to wait him out (or drag him into things, if they're Hoseok or Jimin). Really really lovely, if a few grammatical errors. (Ignore me really enjoying Jimin sitting in JK's lap, move along)

"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.

Byulyi leaned forward, placing a finger under Yongsun’s chin and tilting her face up. “Will you tell me the truth?” she asked.

Yongsun met her eyes, her own dark pools of emotion. “No,” she whispered.

Byulyi gave a too-loud snort, slapping a hand across her mouth to muffle her giggles.

|| It starts as Solar and Moonbyul play-acting in the back of the van, and rapidly gains a depth and backstory and lovely edge that just kills me.

They've never set out to be cool parents or anything, because then you end up like poor Rhiannon's parents; offering kids inappropriate  bongs and really inappropriate food. Plus, Rosemary hasn't been braless in more than two decades and she really doesn't plan on starting now, you can't give gravity that kind of opening. And Olive spends so much time rolling her eyes in their general direction she's surprised she hasn't damaged something. But god knows, they all love each other like breathing, like murder, like a choice.



In words that are not just screaming about my thematic kinks, this is unabashedly lovely; Rosemary and Dill (ROSEMARY AND DILL HER PARENTS' NAMES ARE *ROSEMARY* AND *DILL* AND THEY NAMED THEIR DAUGHTER *OLIVE* oh holy shit how did I not see that earlier ANYWAY) are delightful, just as they are in the movie.

The King and Queen of the Enchanted Forest haven't shared a bed in more than a decade. Not that it's any of your business, really.

“Only think how lucky we are,” Queen Cimorene had moralized the first night they were reunited. “Why, I have one cousin who was cursed to sleep for a hundred years. Her own fault, of course—she knew it was going to be a spindle, everybody knew it was going to be a spindle, they put it in all the textbooks for over a decade, and would you believe the silly chit touched the thing anyway—but I do still feel badly for her. I don’t imagine her husband will even be around for her to sleep with when she wakes. We got off very lightly, all things considered.”

|| God help me, this is PERFECT, and I want to read everything this author's ever written. Cimorene and Mendanbar are practical and hilarious and in love, Daystar is timid and excited and wonderful, and Willin is a busybody.

Strange Horizons Fiction: Librarians in the Branch Library of Babel, by Shaenon K. Garrity
The Branch Library is infinite. All Libraries of Babel are infinite. The Branch Libraries are just smaller.

Which is larger: all possible numbers, or all possible even numbers? Logically, they're the same size. A fraction of an infinite set is still infinite, isn't it? By the same logic, it's possible for an infinite library in which every other book is, say, Stephen King's Cujo to still contain all possible books, same as the main library. It's just that you stand a 50% chance of getting Cujo.

I'm only using Cujo as an example. As you know, we did not work at an infinite library where every other book is Stephen King's Cujo. That library is in El Paso.

I know it's confusing. We used to have a laminated sign behind the front desk explaining the Library system, with all the math, but a few years ago someone stole it and by then we'd lost the laminating machine.

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.


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.

Tony falls through the space between worlds. As a result, he can see daemons. It kind of freaks him out. (It's stranger and more beautiful than he could have ever imagined.)

Well, Tony thinks, blinking back dust and dried blood. This is different.

There's a cat sitting on his chest. An honest-to-god, shaggy-furred cat, blinking down at him and hissing at the sky.

Captain America looms somewhere just overhead, and there's a wolf at his side. Her—and it is a she, Tony knows it right away—fur is dark, but her eyes are gentle, almost worried.

The cat sitting on his chest purrs. Tony blinks. He's not entirely sure how he's supposed to react to that.

At first he hadn't cared because of course it was Leader-envy, or admiration or secret crushes or what the fuck ever they had other shit to do and if someone wanted to speak up they could and in the meantime fuck you, and after that for a while he'd mostly gritted his teeth and tried to tell himself it was just paranoia and/or perfectly normal group dynamics in a long-term close quarters arrangement. Right? Right.

Nothing Gold - Archive of Our Own [Yuletide]
“Do you ever wonder, miss, er, I mean ‘suppose,’ what Miss Minchin and them are doin’ right now, at home in the square?”

“I don’t,” she said simply. “But perhaps I should. Miss Minchin and Miss Amelia are stories just as anyone else is. Who knows what might be happening to them even now, while we sit here in a different country, believing all the adventures belong to us?”

Oh. There's a semi-awkward perspective shift in the middle, but the musing on supposing, from both Becky and Sara's perspectives, made my eyes water. Delightful, for any fan of the book.

Cities in Dust (shit let's be hardboiled)
Newternia's streets are merciless, especially if you happen to be a hard-boiled human Detective on your first case with a crazy Legislacerator.

Oh, your city lies in dust my friend. Your city lies in dust.

OH WOW. This is EVEN MORE PLOTTY than it first appears, is wonderfully illustrated (Terezi's DRESS, OH. MY. GOD!), beautifully, achingly characterized, and plays on my Dave/Terezi feels like Nobody's Business. Read it now.

4/8, Chapter 25/29.

Two, Side by Side
Mei curled her tail around her hind legs and flexed her claws. "I forget that you do not know anything about history," she said, kindly. "Hua Mu Lan was the first woman lung-zi, in the dawning days of the Tang Dynasty, when our forces were as barbaric as yours in such matters and only men were allowed to fight." Temeraire bridled a bit at this, the spines of his ruff flaring, but subsided as Mei continued. "Her story is one of our most famous poems. I will sing it to you, if you like."

|| OH MY GOD ALL MY FEELS. I cannot exactly express why, but this almost made me cry. God, women who want things and give things up.

On a more coherent note: this MuLan is epically believable as a person, and the rewrite of Mulan into the Temeraire universe is impeccable.

The Professor's Wife - Chapter 1 - foolish_mortal - xxxHoLic [Archive of Our Own]
The students all said that Professor Doumeki had a wife who made him lunches and impeccably pressed his shirts. Watanuki found this hilarious. For the wtfholic fest prompt: "The only people who can see Watanuki are customers with wishes."

|| Somehow, I'd convinced myself I hadn't read this, because, re-starting it, nothing seemed familiar. It's that character-driven. Nevertheless, this is perfect: it's soft and sad and hopeful in all the best ways the manga was, and I absolutely have slotted it into canon. That's done, and finally, I am at peace with the ending of xxxholic.

wordstrings - A Thousand Threads of What-Might-Have-Beens I
When John does finally leave, Sherlock is the last one to be surprised by it. But so much leading up to the event was Good by their eccentric standards, even Immeasurably Good, that the timing does seem wrong. Well, mildly wrong. As wrong as any trivial detail can feel when one's bones have been removed, for example, or one's blood drained out of one's veins.

|| UNNNNNNNNNGHHHHHHHHHH. The author warns for "disturbingly possessive" and well, yes, that would be a line for me if this was anything else but Sherlock and John. As is, Sherlock is so beautiful and so shattering, and John is so good and it has so many feelings and oh, oh, oh.
