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.

first - novembersmith - Uprooted - Naomi Novik [Archive of Our Own]
“If it’s the first time that is the worst, and it gets better after that, then I won’t—won’t you—I don’t want him to be your first,” Agnieszka is saying, hotly. She gnaws at her lower lip, staring down at Kasia, still clutching their hands together. Her face is blotchy and pale all at once. “Let me. I’ll—with you. Let me do this for you, with you.”

|| Lovely and bittersweet--my heartstrings are still tugging. I don't have a tag for "I'd do anything for you," and the burning that comes with it, but that's the two of them in this. I love it. (I am also pretending this is an AU where somehow they manage to end up together, a+ job, girls.)

Three Red Fish - Miaou Jones (miaoujones) - Natsume Yuujinchou | Natsume's Book of Friends [Archive of Our Own]
Natsume has been here before: even before he looks, he knows there will be a pond.

|| I liked this a LOT! My favorite part was probably not the shippy stuff--that felt kind of underdeveloped, tbh--but the childhood youkai and art therapy stuff was excellent, and as quietly empathetic and compassionate as the show/manga.

idolkiller: BTS || PAUSE, STOP (Rap Monster/Suga)
Yoongi and Namjoon are high-schoolers trying to make it in Seoul's hip hop scene.

|| This one's a lot softer and moodier that the seven-minutes fic I just saved, but I liked it nonetheless. I particularly liked Namjoon, to be honest, and that this was based, in a lot of ways, on actual canon. It seems like the major change really just is the idea the Suga and Rapmon knew each other.

Notorious - Chapter 1 - bob_fish - Fullmetal Alchemist [Archive of Our Own]
Twenty-five years ago ... Chris Mustang is having a very bad month. The censors killed her show, she's in debt to a couple of very dubious businessmen, and she's working as a hostess in the worst bar in town. As if that wasn't enough, her estranged big brother seems to have gotten himself in an auto accident, and some nut decided to make her guardian of his four year old brat.

|| This fic is so absolutely rewarding. I got completely swept up in Chris, in her revelations and her faults, her worries and plans, and the slow-building trust she finds with Grumman and the love for baby Roy. Fantastic, fantastic fantastic.

“You’re an absolute idiot,” she tells him, shortly. “Did it ever occur to you that I agreed to marry you, Aleksis Kaidonovsky? You didn’t steal me or force me into it. I said yes. I’m wearing your damned ring here on my finger. The next time you cheapen one of my decisions, including the one I made when I married you, I am going to drag you out of this room by your hair and I will remove your one remaining kidney personally. And then I will feed it to the dogs.” She scowls. “Now sit up. You’re bleeding through your other bandage.”

|| Oh.

Three Golden Bulls Worth - miikkaa_xx - Pacific Rim (2013) [Archive of Our Own]
The first thing one should know is that Stacker Pentecost handpicks his pilots. (or: the Wei Tang triplets also have a story.)

|| AUGHHHHHHH. Family, and backstory, and finding a place in a world that is mourning--ungh. FAMILY. AUGHHHHHHHHHH. I teared up.

The Hobbit Kink Meme - Prompt Post 3 (PROMPT FREEZE)
"I'll let that go for now, princeling," he says menacingly. Thorin's arms shake a little as he hefts himself up and grasps his sword. "I won't be so gentle next time. Now, I suggest we calm down and discuss this reasonably."

The smoke has cleared around them, and Thorin watches the dragon as he catches his breath.

"By all means," he finally says, a grin curling his lips, "let us discuss how we can best remove your fat behind from our front door."

|| Lolololol.

The answer to the question 'how did a nice young man like Nathan Hendricks wind up in a corporate crime syndicate like this?,' and a couple others. References but probably doesn't really spoil Even Hand.

In the meantime you blast through space like a stealth missile, a silenced gun. You are small and the Medium is dark and even when the Veil rises before you again, you are exhilarated. You spin around the asteroids and realize that you are invincible and you are fast.
