For a long moment, a moment in which Bucky felt gifted with sudden insight into who Steve was, he thought it could go either way. Then Steve smiled, this one warm and bright and just for Bucky, and it raced through him, lodging inside him like a miniature sun. "Guess I'd be a bit ungrateful to say no."
Some Heralds change the world. Some Heralds save it. Some Herald's names are woven through the very fabric of Valdemar. But most don't, and most aren't. Most Heralds simply do their duty, their Companions by their side, their stories recorded in dusty Crown records, not Bardic ballads.
Steve and Bucky figured they were most Heralds—no ballads required, thanks—and they were mostly right. What they didn't account for was that no Herald was ordinary—and with two of them bound so tight together, extraordinary was sure to happen.
[Absolutely no knowledge of the Valdemar series required for this fic]
+ but it does help. this is a pretty great valdemar fusion that made my 5.5 hour flight tolerable.

+ desmond goes back in time to prevent the war between the assassins and templars from ever starting. he ends up becoming a healer and taking over a hospital. the pairing is very much in the background for most of the fic, but the payoff was great for me. 100k+.

He’s gotta admit he would not have put money on where he finds her: locked in what looks like a Hulk-proof glass cage in a sub-basement, with the Human Torch. There’s a Clue joke in this somewhere.

It is not a playful act. The child bites hard, and then he grinds his teeth in and holds on.
There is for Hannibal a moment of outrage, in which he considers striking the child to knock him away. Hannibal’s face curls, for just a microsecond, into a snarl, and astonishingly he realizes that the boy, who is looking up at him with fearsome defiance, his jaws still locked around the side of his hand, has not missed this.
Hannibal sets his face to communicate a shocked but stoic response to the assault, and this is what his father sees, when perhaps three seconds later he crouches next to the boy to coax him into loosening his hold.
AKA, the one where Will is the single father of a troubled little boy, and Hannibal is enchanted by them both.
"Hannibal is Not a Cannibal but still has some murders under his belt"
+ not what i expected.

"Yeah, well, I still think it's stupid," Will muttered.
"We do fit the profile," Hannibal said. "A couple from different social strata; recently cohabiting; homosexual. That's not what offends you, is it?" Hannibal added.
(Or: Hannibal and Will have to pretend to be a couple for a case. Everything goes downhill from there.)
+ the title of the series is accurate. if i'd read this while i was in the middle of reading all hannibal fic all the time, i don't think it would have stood out at all. but i liked how the first fic is from hannibal's pov, which sets up the second fic well. also, it had the first fake kiss scene in awhile that has actually made sense to me and not seemed overly forced for the fic.
+ the snarry in this isn't actually that grate, but i like what it did with time travel in a fun and absurd way. also, i misread the summary, and at no point in this fic is snape a portrait.
+ starts at the end of second year and goes through poa. only one chapter of the sequel complete, projected to go through to book seven.
Oh, for God’s sake.
Her glands are already itchy and she’s changed her underwear twice. Unless she wants to spend three days in writhing misery, she’s going to have to swipe right on one of these prize winners.
Message: Hi. I saw your post. I would like to have a conversation with you, if you’re willing.
(Alternate Summary: the author completely loses her mind and decides to throw another PWP A/B/O smutfest onto the garbage heap.)
+ kylo is a virgin and a robot. he goes insane over rey pretty much immediately.
+ i actually liked how this one resolved the time travel dilemma.
Mr Bingley has left Netherfield, and in his stead a rich but unscrupulous man takes residence of the manor. While Elizabeth is in Kent, visiting her recently married friend Charlotte, she receives letters, which tell her how Jane is soon to be wed to a man Elizabeth can't stand. And then, unbelievably, Mr Darcy, the last man in the world she would ever choose to marry, proposes to her. If she accepts, she could introduce Jane to all the eligible men in England, and rescue her from the clutches of despair. Even if the man offering, has just insulted her entire family and seems to assume that now that he has proposed, he must be accepted. Elizabeth longs to put him in his place, but thoughts of rescuing Jane make her do something that will change the course of her life forever...
+ i really with this had ended with porn, but it was pretty great anyway.
+ they get a little obsessive about each other. i liked this until the mother showed up and then things slowed down and wrapped up too fast. awkward sex.
A single thing.
"I will give you the knowledge of flight," Minerva decides. "And you will be starting humanity's quest for the skies hundreds of years ahead of its time. This will ensure that by the time the Sun begins its flaring, humanity will be ready."
Desmond opens his mouth and makes a garbled noise of objection. "That's – you're kidding me. That will change everything!" he says. "That will change – the whole human history."
"Only the last five hundred years of it," Minerva says dismissively – it's a mere blink of an eye in their existence.
+ i knew nothing about assassins creed before i started this, but a few wikipedia searches got me through. leonardo/desmond.
Calvin, accompanied as ever by Hobbes, may just find such a place.
+ calvin and hobbes go to atlantis.
+ gen thor fixit fic.
(In which Hermione accidentally ends up in 1950, pitted against an ascending Dark Lord in his prime, caught in the entanglement of pureblood politics, dark magic, and Tom Riddle's interest)
+ so far hermoine has had a makeover and is attracted to both voldie and abraxas malfoy. i wouldn't say it's in character, but i'm entertained.
Merlin has huge debts looming over this head, a few quid left in his bank account, and no job prospects. Arthur is pushing thirty, in a dead-end job with no chances of promotion to fieldwork agent, and is thoroughly bored with his life.
One ill-advised Craigslist advert, five pushy mates, one nosy all-knowing sister, and a hacked email account later, Merlin and Arthur take the world by storm.
(Or, more precisely, they take over the world.)
+ a fairly kooky modern au, but it was pretty entertaining for over 140k words.
Modern day AU in which Ben is an Alpha, Rey is an Omega, and they are way better at having sex than at communicating with each other.
+ the misunderstanding is pretty dumb, but not horribly dumb. they just don't talk to one another. the porn was good.
BRAGGING ABOUT YOUR SPELLING AND GRAMMAR IN THE SUMMARY MAKES ME LESS LIKELY TO READ IT, RATHER THAN MOAR. // LOL IDC AS LONG AS IT'S TRUE. // IAWTC, ESPECIALLY IF THE FANDOM IS TYPICALLY GODAWFUL. // HONESTLY THESE DAYS I'M JUST HAPPY IF THE TAGS DON'T INVOKE MENTAL IMAGES THAT WILL HAUNT ME FOR HOURS.
+ this is a pretty great ginny fic, but it mostly fits itself into cannon and doesn't change anything, which was slightly disappointing.
‘How is that a good deed?’ Thor asks, bewildered.
‘It would give everyone a good laugh,’ Loki says, the corner of his mouth twitching. ‘I’m laughing on the inside just picturing it.’
In which Loki is roped into cleaning up his act to reassure the people that he isn't planning on betraying them (again), while Thor spends far too much time explaining that no, they aren’t sleeping together.
+ i have a hard time reading got/asoif fic because the idea of any of the characters getting a happy ending just seems naive. this is very sweet though.
This is a collection of oneshots that all fit into the same universe, but posted in no particular order. Updated when the muse strikes me.
+ it's been pretty compelling and i'm really disappointed that it stopped before esb.
[Harry is stranded in Westeros and finds the land almost bereft of magic. The only way back is to boost the magic so he becomes Lord Whent of Harrenhal, starts planting weirwood trees, trains Wizards and takes down the wall.]
The past wasn't at peace with him.
[At Mortis Anakin from the future is brought into the present and takes over his younger self, tasked once again with the job of balancing the force.]
[The one with the physics and the anti-slavery crusade and the controlled Fall. Also the one that never gets around to the Council scene and doesn't use Anakin's name.]
+ mostly fun and enjoyable.
Notes: Fair warning: this is Lost Days-era Jason Todd, which means there will be an alarming amount of violence in this fic.
+ jason whump with a somewhat random feeling savior!coulson. i did enjoy it though.

[In which Iris Potter goes back in time and finds herself six with a six year old temporal male twin. She rescues Sirius and Bellatrix from Azkaban and runs afoul of the older Black generation. They believe she's Dorea's illegitimate daughter and adopt her in as heir. They keep Sirius and Bellatrix hidden and start working against Voldemort. Iris befriends Harry and sees him every weekend. When they get to Hogarts, she maintains the friendship, steals the Philosopher's Stone to cure the older Blacks of a generational curse, competes with Hermione, and starts an illegal dueling club.]
+ pretty much no conflict.
+ nothing special, but it is readable snarry. mildly powerful!harry fic, but doesn't do much with it.
a star wars vid about technology and empire
the grand experiment // doomtree
Tags: star wars rogue one a new hope doomtree this is also just about my rogue one feelings and my leia feelings
+ mostly rogue one.
+ the one where she creates a neighboring kindom called the near endless golden plains.
+ master of death!harry. crossover with vampire hunter d. d/harry.
the fic is not entirely satisfying, and occasionally internally inconsistent, but the crossover felt fresh and interesting. the sequels helped with the satisfaction.
Those few gaps being his grandmother, Victoria Winslow, and his grandfather, Ivan Simanov, and all the ex-KGB aunts and uncles who've helped raise him.
It's not a problem; after all, it ain't like his work life and his home life are suddenly going to overlap due to an unforeseen, potentially world ending event.
That'd be ridiculous.
Lee Unwin was the secret lovechild of Victoria and Ivan from RED, and they were none too thrilled when his involvement with Kingsman got him killed. Being the impeccable badass that she is, Victoria would not tolerate any "Dean" nonsense around her grandbaby, and let's all agree that her house is the safest place in the UK.
+ fairly ridiculous RED/kingsman crossover. not grate, but mostly entertaining in an over the top way.
(Spoiler alert: It wasn’t Luke Skywalker)
(Spoiler alert #2: It was Kylo Ren)
+ more weasley bashing than i'm usually okay with, but the fake!dating for revenge was pretty fun.
A very interesting AU; Hermione is still Hermione, but when your only friends are demons, your perspective on life is going to be rather skewed.
+ i stayed up way too late last night reading this. i found it adorable, but ymmv. ends after year 1, and then summarizes how things would go after that.
"Yes, my lady?" Brienne said politely, still waiting, wondering if she was to be sent on some errand from the King that Sansa herself doubted the wisdom of. A proposal was an odd way of putting it.
"A proposal," Lady Sansa went on, tightly. "Of marriage."
+ this is not fluff, but it still felt like it resolved easier than they ever could have.
+ outsider pov.
+ just reread this and realized it kind of hits the 'my partner's dead, just kidding' vibe. ron is just held hostage, but it was almost as satisfying.
Look, I'll be frank: this is over 7000 words of pure self-indulgence. My only hope is that it scratches an itch for my recipient as well.
+ caine is the prettiest of pretty princess brides.
Notes: Ah, the creation process:
Commenter: Would you consider writing sticky?
Me: I just don't get why* Transformers would end up with human-type sexual equipment.
Brain: *crashes through the wall like Kool-Aid Man* I GOT THIS
Here, have a story.
* ("I just don't get why" is probably the starting point of 50% of my stories.)
+ i read a lot of weird shit. astolat sometimes takes it to another level.
“He’s an emissary, Scott.” Derek tried to make his tone empathetic, but Scott’s tendency to fight back on everything always grated on his nerves. “His pack is gone, he won’t survive more than a day or two either way.”
“Then we should stay with him.”
Derek sighed as he studied the man for a moment; he was too pale against the fur rim of his hood, almost grey from lying out in the snow, and his cloak was stained with dark dried blood around a protruding arrow shaft. It was unlikely he would even last the night. They would probably be able to carry on in the morning with little time lost, if any.
It wasn’t a horrible idea, Derek decided reluctantly. They hadn’t been able to set up a real camp for a few weeks in the open foothills, and they were all on edge from sleeping in exposed areas. A defensible place to sleep would be good for them, even if they were surrounded by death. They would be able to give the pack proper burials, at the very least.
“Fine. One night,” Derek relented, already moving away to check on Isaac. “He’s your responsibility.”
+ vaguely tribal au is a good tag for this.
+ book recs.
Rey rests a hand on his arm, feeling the muscles underneath his sleeve. “Babe,” she says, leaning close to him. “It means we pretend we’re madly in love. Think you can pull that off for your office pool?” Ben’s eyes flicker softly between each of hers and he swallows, his Adam’s apple bobbing in his throat.
+ modern au. ben/kylo is exceptionally awkward.
They flit in and out of each other's lives, always a little out of reach, and then the First Order takes Rey but Kylo Ren was not the one who ordered her capture. One-shot.
+ this could have been longer.
+ sure. i'll just continue googling info for this fandom that i'm never going to play.
+ vader dies half way through the fic, and while i'm glad i didn't go into that blind, it was still rough. in addition, parts of the second half get pretty dark - a child dies unexpectedly in a fucked up way. even with all the tears this caused and its tonal changes, this was a pretty satisfying fixit fic for the universe, and i don't regret reading it.
One Shot. Complete.
It’s hard to feel self-conscious when the leader of the galaxy wants to be on his knees for you.
+ space virgins.

At least, that's what Thor tells himself after it's suggested the cleanest solution to the Loki Problem is to marry him.
+ not as crackish as the summary would lead you to believe.
+ for the most part drama free fake!dating. ben had been pining, and there aren't any huge misunderstandings either.
aka, FORCE FINGER BANGING
+ post tlj, short.
"Like a house on fire," the General deadpanned. "Complete with screams, flames, and people running for safety."
"Indeed." Luke's blue eyes twinkled. "There may be no survivors."
+ ben and rey go undercover at a first order base as matt and kira, radar technicians. somewhat juvenile - there is too much truth or dare.
Behind her, the nurse huffed, cocking her hip. As if it was obvious, she said, “She’s his fiancée.”
+ a ridiculous while you were sleeping au, minus the brother. pretty enjoyable.
