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. Loved.

Let Toretto Be Toretto - astolat - Fast and the Furious Series [Archive of Our Own]
It was a joke between him and Letty when Brian first got assigned to the campaign: they’d met the Secret Service team together and it had been all Dom could do not to look over at her as Han said, “Governor, this is Agent Brian O’Conner, he’ll be the head of your personal detail.”

“Well, now you really have to win,” Letty said that night, laughing deep and throaty after Dom fucked her twice even though they’d been through three cities that day. “Shit, Toretto. Do you think somebody knows?”

“If they know and this is their idea of what to do about it, I’m not complaining,” Dom said. He didn’t tell Letty she didn’t have anything to worry about, because she knew that just fine. “Jesus, he’s pretty.”

Coulson's Eleven - Chapter 1 - copperbadge - The Avengers (Marvel Movies), Marvel, Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
After Vanko destroyed the Stark Expo, SHIELD instituted a Superhuman Detention program, designed to capture and hold dangerous people -- dangerous people like Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and others who made themselves noticeable. The superhumans SHIELD has imprisoned -- and some SHIELD agents themselves -- have other ideas about what constitutes 'dangerous'...

|| The actual fic is much more tightly plotted, terrifically characterized, and interesting than the dime-novel paperback blurb summary maybe implies--I, at least, put it off for a while. I love the character interactions, particularly Peter, and the way Natasha and Clint come to the team differently. Could barely look away. Oooooh, machinations, ooooh.

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.

Play It Again - Chapter 1 - metisket - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
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.

Convenient Husbands - Annie D (scaramouche) - Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
"It's only temporary, right?" Dean says. "Just until you're healed up, and then we'll never have to see each other again. So what do you say, Castiel, do you want to marry me or not?"

|| 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. I'm not sure how the author got the whole speaking-without-speaking clearly thing down so well, especially in the TWO DIFFERENT VOICES that Fai and Kurogane have, but they did, and I could read a sequel to this for days and days.

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.

“Terezi...” he says, and he looks down at her shoes. She dreads this, wants to both cover her ears and shake it out of him. Wants to go home and fall asleep on her couch, and wants to go back and tear through the bloody scene for answers. Karkat’s face goes all pained, and then wipes away to a forced blankness that she knows is a lie. He looks up and, “Terezi, it’s Nepeta.”

She will remember this very second for its scent. Thick humidity before a storm, bright flashes of mixed berry from the useless ambulance, and Karkat, all coffee and grey and hard candy red.

Karrin gets forcibly given two weeks leave. Imagine how well THAT goes. Not so great, honestly. (Although she meets a hot lady!)

Tell the Chicago Bureau of Police that, though. I barely believed it myself. It didn't seem fair to believe it: it exonerated me too completely. I know a guy who says that the reason that people don't believe in magic anymore is because we're afraid. Bullshit. It's because we're cynics.

Four (Or Five) Reasons for Kidnapping Tony Stark - Chapter 1 - scifigrl47 - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
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.

Sequel to the one about the sentient toaster and Roombas. Delightfully paced, vibrant and funny writing--overall, just really FUN.

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.

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 />

UM YES. Close-to-canon AU: a couple decades later, a mutant registry involved, and Erik is an agent with a kick-ass task team, but they're all still mutants, and it's awesome. Plotty and characterization for the win.

10/6, up to part FIFTY-FIVE, which I haven't read since 9. However, the AuthorAnon says that the total, final version will be up at AO3 within the next weeks (probably), so I'm super tempted to leave it and then read it in one crazy sitting.

Parallel - Chapter 1 - brbsoulnomming - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
There's a case at a secondary school/University, some series of threats or string of bizarre murders that has the entire campus shaken. In the course of the investigation, Sherlock and John meet two students. One is well liked if not popular, athletic, intelligent without showing off, involved only because they were close to a victim or witnessed something important. The other is a loner with no regard for social norms, an insufferable genius, always in the chem lab, and involved because everyone, including teachers/professors, think they're behind everything. ...And the two of them meet, help Sherlock and John, and well, love abounds. <br />
<br />
So, my favorite part of this fic came quite early, when I realized the author was making the parallel couple both girls, and my stomach swooped a little. Yay! Developed female characters! Femmeslash! Always loved! In addition, it's fun and plotty, although the S/J somehow didn't feel as developed. Maybe because they carry the idiot ball, some.

Okay, so, this is an AU of the 2009 movie--and as I was reading, I felt that more and more, and the characters started to be RDJ and Jude-look-alikes in my head, and this Sherlock loves chemistry as much as he does in the movie--but REALLY? This is the perfectest modern au of Sherlock Holmes in any and all iterations, and I say that with the all the heartburning love for BBCSherlock. I am not sure how Gyzym has all the voices in her repetoire, but she does, and this John is very different than Danny, or Steve, or Arthur, or Eames. GODDAMM. YES.

Really. Sherlock and John are still named Sherlock and John and they think it's ridiculous and how is this their lives, and there are hair-raising shenanigans, black eyes, Mycroft being a boss, and Irene being awesome, and a lot of weed.

The one that starts with Harry as a woman and then he gets rid of his knighthood and then they deal with Maggie; also there is the part where he falls in with Marcone because YES WHAT. Across-the-board great voices, sometimes the plot moves a little quickly, but that's not the real focus, and the romancing is a slow-paced build enough to make it so very, very worthwhile. Followed by Symbology, which reads as if it will also have a sequel.

Near Miss
Three years ago, Tony Vargassi died and left his flourishing criminal empire to his son Marco. Gang violence is rife in the streets, but Harry Dresden's concluded, reluctantly, that it isn't his kind of problem. He's about to find out that the real power behind Chicago's throne is a lot worse then a spoiled mobster's son -- and maybe more than he can handle.

John 'Johnny' Marcone is a mechanic with a bad limp and a bad history with Vargassi. He doesn't want to get back into the business of the Business; he barely escaped with his life before. But in Harry Dresden he sees enough raw power to save the city he loves. Will he risk it all to back his crazy friend against the powers that be?

And can Harry and his car survive what Chicago has in store for him, even with a full-time mechanic?

Flail! This whole fandom is just full of SO MUCH FUN. Plottiness! Everywhere! Snark! Boys-in-love! Magic Sticks! AT THE SAME TIME! As Harry says in this...wheeeeeeeeeee.

Besieging Omelas
"When cynical wizard John Constantine is flung from his universe to Harry Dresden's in an attempt to prevent his interfering with Titania's plans, it's up to both of them to foil her and her allies in both universes, save an assortment of innocents from Hell and rescue a certain crime lord who's caught in the middle...while Harry deals with revelations about his family that he'd never even imagined." A romp. I thoroughly enjoyed this--plotty, well-imagined, and with a romance that is neither a side plot nor unbelievable. Sometimes the twists are a bit hard for me to follow--but I'm not familiar with the source canon, and I still really had fun.
