formal absences of precious things - pettey - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
The first night he spends at Jimin’s new place, Jeongguk decides it’s finally the right time to start catching up.

Or, that tedious post-disbandment fic.

|| Parts of this are weirdly hard to follow, like the author leaned to far into compression and got not-enough-information, but there are ALSO a bunch of beats that worked for me really well, in terms of emotion. I did kind of ache the whole time--disbandment, augh, and this is a vision where they love each other but are not super in touch--but that distance provides the space for the: what happens when you start to grow up separately, start to make your own adulthood--and then get back in touch. How do the pieces fit together. It's a compelling question.

relief - countingpaths - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
His bones feel like they're being pulled forward, like he has to fight them from curling into the curve of Jimin's body.

There's only so much he can do– His body leans in anyway. They giggle all the way up to their room, half pressed against each other. Holding each other up. Trailing behind the rest of their group and tripping over their own feet, cushioned by the safety nets they find in each other's arms.

“Lost in their own little world ,” he thinks he hears Seokjin mutter.

|| This fic is ostensibly about the first-time that happens in the second half, but it's mostly about BUILD--and what really makes it work for me is the way it weaves this backstory of a 95line who have been circling each other for ages, laughing and semi-breathless every time their gazes catch for too long--and this is the story of them FINALLY giving into that. It hits like you've been reading the gleeful pining for 10 or 20k already; you're that certain these kids are crazy about each other. The Tae has synesthesia thing is almost a little too played up for me in places, but I also really like it, so.

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.

The wind's out of the south and Cougar's restless.

|| The summary's misleading--this is very much in Jake's POV, and it runs and trips on itself in run-ons and asides, quips and idle curiosity, but still, through that, stays focused. The style's honestly at least half the fun; the rest is atmosphere and warmth.

welcome, ghosts - ohyousinners - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Hoseok and Taehyung end up one hour late to soundcheck, and Namjoon berates them for well over five minutes. Hoseok just loops an easy arm around Taehyung’s waist, dragging him in, leaning on him for support as he counts the seconds that Namjoon goes without breathing. They get shuffled to hair and make-up after that, and from then on Hoseok can’t breathe without inhaling the foggy, cloying scent of hair-spray. He probably can’t touch his hair without being cut by the sharp edges.

|| Short thing from a band au that feels about 20 to 30k longer, but the relationships and the fundamental conflict are developed so effectively that you can see the problems and the ultimate resolution. Really really enjoyed.

Love on Top - bazooka - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Jimin flushed and fumbled with the bag, almost dropping one of the styrofoam containers as he fought to pull it out. "They were out of your favorite so I got the other one you get sometimes, but—"

"You should go home, Jimin. Get some sleep."

"No," Jimin said, voice quiet as he stared down at the shrink-wrapped ramen in his hand.

|| I liked this a lot, and the above illustrates a big part of why--Jimin isn't pushy or demanding, but he's sure of himself--what he wants, and what actions he's going to take, even as he takes others' feelings into account and wants them to be well. It's a really good characterization--especially, for me, since he's the omega in this. May stand on its own, but these particular abo dynamics make more sense in the context of the linked Namjin.

Upside Down, Inside Out - Chapter 1 - bazooka - 방탄소년단 | Bangtan Boys | BTS [Archive of Our Own]
Jin looked up into his face and reached up carefully to brush light fingertips over his forehead, fold his hands into his palms. Namjoon's skin was so tender and raw, like he'd been scraped by sandpaper while asleep, he couldn't help but flinch and groan as Jin's warmth brushed over his hands. Jin sucked in a breath and his eyes went huge.

"Oh," Jin said after a second. He went pale suddenly, unexpectedly, and shot upward. "Oh. You're... you're really sick, Namjoonie." He whacked Jeongguk's sleeping form mercilessly. "Kookie, you need to get up and get dressed, Namjoon's super sick and you probably shouldn't sleep in here or..." He stuttered to a halt, glancing down at Namjoon. "Or you might catch it," he finished stupidly.

|| I really liked this--it's best when Namjoon and Seokjin both want things, selfishly, and both are understandable, but difficult. I had a bit of trouble with the internalized self-hate--in both of them--and the fic is best not in the sex scenes, to be honest, but in the slow burn of it--but by and large the author is graceful, and interesting, and I looked forward to every update.

backstage at sbs’s gayo daejun is hectic. it’s always hectic, at these things, but more so tonight, with 20 idols shuffled into temporary units, creating twice as many costume changes and half as much coherency in dressing room locations.

on the bright side, it is a lot easier, with so much chaos, for jieun to pull hyojung into an abandoned side-hallway and slide her hands up hyojung’s dress.

Yoongi's not really into sex, most of the time. He's not grossed out by it, he's not bothered by other people having it (though he'd prefer to not have to be witness to it, thanks Hoseok), but he's not into it.

But every now and then there will be something--some thing--that catches his eye, something he can't stop thinking about.

|| The Yoongi in this is kind of heart-stoppingly good--blustery and direct, calm and analytic about most things--and flinching away from others. Really really good description of asexuality/kink. (Heads up, this is Yoongi/award in addition to Yoongi/Namjoon.) Like how Namjoon is softly assertive in this too, as he is when he's thought about something and is sure of it.

Iraq did a number on both of them, no matter how much they pretended they were fine afterwards; it ate them up alive and spat out their mangled remains. It takes Nate years to acknowledge that. Takes Brad even longer. Sure, OIF was a clusterfuck of epic proportions, but they're fucking Marines – they make do, they deal with whatever shit gets thrown at them and don't let it get to them. Except when they do.

But that's just the thing: you can't take in the bigger picture when you're too close, even less when you're part of it. You inevitably get lost in the details, and you need to take a step back or ten to see the whole thing.

At first, Ankh doesn’t recognise him. They don’t look particularly alike, and there’s no real sense of familiarity, not like there is with the other Greeed.

But one day, Eiji turns and tilts his head, and a sense of dread hits Ankh like one of Mezul’s tsunami. Eiji’s eyes turn cold for a moment, a second, and Ankh knows him.

|| The ending feels kind of tacked on, but listen. I need OOOs fic like burning, and this at least addresses the complications of their relationship during the series--I liked that, actually, quite a lot.

Web of Gold - cest_what - Kamen Rider OOO, Tokusatsu [Archive of Our Own]
The bunk bed frame shifts and squeaks beneath him, and Ankh jerks his head up. A moment later Eiji pulls himself over the end of the top bunk, tumbling in a sleep-heavy tangle of limbs onto the mattress.

|| A really great post-series and post-movie take on Ankh and Eiji, and part of what might happen as Ankh figures out his new, more human experience. Includes hair scritches, physical and emotional closeness, although it never TECHNICALLY gets more shippy than the show. (Still mad.) (Not actually mad.) (Kinda mad.) OOOs spoilers.

Hoseok shifts back up, and stretches languidly. “Come on, hyung,” he says, “ramyun break.”

“It’s two,” says Yoongi, snorting, “and it’s snowing.”

“Come on,” says Hoseok, a little more insistently, “we barely get any time to ourselves. Namjoon’s out cold, and everyone’s at home, and I’m sure we’ll be back under an hour flat.” His voice drops, a little lower, a little quieter than before. “Please?”

|| I really liked this. The softness and stylization of the narration is off-set by the boys sounding like themselves, and it's angstiness is honestly edged by their kind of... determined hope. I don't ship this in particular, but I liked it a lot. (I think.... this made me ship.... rapper line..... actually..... working around the production tables oh no /o\)

fumerie: [exo] mango, peaches, and lime.
Teeth-Rich looked like the kind of guy who wanted to set the world on fire just for the fun of it. Kris knew the type. What Kris didn't count on was for Teeth-Rich to become his breakfast date across Asia.

|| Superpowers/Assassins AU--both Kris and Chanyeol are pyrotechnics, and definitely lacking in moral/ethical boundaries etc. Lots of burning people in this, some graphically described.

That said, I had no idea that's what this was about, I started it several times, but was always kind of bored, but once I got past the first section I liked it way more than I expected. Kris is kind of a jerk, Chanyeol is cheerful and kind of crazy, the writing is tight and lush.

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.

Hoya sometimes has the brief impulse to email Sunggyu back and demand, “What are you supposed to do when you fall in love with your members?”

Hyung line heads off for their military service, leaving Hoya as leader of a four-member Infinite. And that’s when all his troubles start.

|| I opened up four tabs in Google to learn about the four different members included in this fic, and it was totally worth it. Hoya's arc is great here: learning to be a leader (and good at it), and falling in love with multiple people, and giving decisions to Sungjong when he can--he's a very easy narrator to like, and root for, and it's really fun (and hot) to see his members through his eyes. A+ recommend. Some (very light) d/s dynamics between Hoya and Sungjong, mostly in Sungjong makes all the bedroom decisions so Hoya can relax.

|| I am such a fan of this fic. I still don't know who JYJ is, really (are they YG or SM I HONESTLY DON'T KNOW), but I like both the JYJ characters, and I love, love, love how young GD and TOP are in this.

"Let's call it a day. Ji Yong, can you help him catch up?"

|| G-Dragon has to give TOP dance lessons in the early days and well. It's hard to be in each other's pockets. It's so sad that as far as I can tell, this counts as a happy ending. Fuck this fandom, for serious.

So he reads for them every chance he gets, like right now, and every time he does he knows there's no way for him ever to quit.

"No, we—" Still standing, Arata cuts himself off with an inhale. Taichi looks up at him but he doesn't continue.

It's Chihaya who says, "We have something to talk to you about."

The entire world believes they are in love, but this is not true.

|| Honestly, I think very close to the fic--the aftermath--that I've been waiting for. For all the dark tags, and the slow burn of grief/depression/addiction-analogy, it's more grounded, more solid than you'd think--skating just at the edge of wallowing or sharp pain and never quite falling in, softening that cliff's edge. Very much surviving.

Nothing Sacred/Nothing True - ferrrox, Laylah - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
"Watch your step," she says sweetly. "That's all. Or the long noose of the law will haul your delinquent posterior up to dance the convict's waltz when you least expect it."

Motherfucking invitation if you ever did hear one.

I am horrified and delighted. Motherfucking Homestuck fandom.

the greatest story ever told [or, this is why good omens is a gateway drug]
Okay, all I remember from this (and I am too lazy to go back) is that it's a semi-biblical-retelling-of-the-world + Good Omens + beautiful prose + layering of free will and good and evil and free will and beautiful prose + historicality + I love it and you should read it, and that's all, folks.

He is dicked the moment she brings out the Cuervo, holding it aloft like it is holy water and she its shrine maiden. “Exorcism,” says Rose.


"Oh, no." I said this, when I finished. I just--the Derse twins were made to break your heart, y'all.

An Avalanche Of Detour Signs - gyzym - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
In which Molly Hooper gets a job, gets a degree, breaks a heart, has her heart broken, falls in love, keeps a secret, saves a life, runs a morgue, falls apart, pulls it together, and finds exactly what she didn't know she was looking for--not necessarily in that order.

The Gutter Gallows - Cephied_Variable - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
Dave develops a passion for law enforcement.

Terezi gets a case of the vapours.

She does the mouth work and you do the leg work, that’s the deal. You’re on the record about not giving a shit about where she finds these low-lifes and you’re also on the record about thinking this whole thing is bullshit. You make sure she knows that she’s crazy and morbid and she’s a tiny, button-nosed fascist girl and every time she looks at you, your skin crawls all inside out and you throw up a little in your mouth.



(...This has the quality of a car crash: a really beautiful car driving through a window into a paint store in the middle of the night. Color and shards and shining, crumpled beauty everywhere, and that is actually the best recommendation I can give it.)

How You Survived The War - roachpatrol - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
The Novice Mode is... unsettling, to say the least. Perhaps if it had been installed sooner, before the face had taken on such a strikingly human aspect, you wouldn’t have found yourself in this position. Perhaps if it didn’t look so much like Dirk.


Roachroachroach, why you gotta do me like that. Amazing, amazing Jake character study, that is also just an excuse for pining and ... robot-fucking. Sometimes, I do not even know. :D

There Are More Things - gatty - Homestuck [Archive of Our Own]
Then some days your eyeballs burn inside your skull and your tongue is like a swollen strip of leather claggy against your teeth. You stand perfectly still holding the knife over the chopping board and portion out a phalanx of steak strips and slip them, raw and bloody between your chapped lips.

Those are almost the days you liked best.

Rose is going down fast. Dave's got no idea what he's doing.

|| This is great. Rose/Dave continues to give me heebie-jeebies, but there's no denying they are beautiful together, beautiful and broken, and so in-love.

You know what I just realized I wanted? I want ROSE needing Dave. I need THAT (Not that this doesn't have that--I just want it from her perspective; not only that she Literally Needs someone around, but why Dave?)
