"Baze," said Chirrut. "This is an injustice."

"I don't tell you what to do," gasped Baze. "Don't tell me what to do – "

"You tell me what to do all the time!"

"No," said Baze. He lowered his hand. It felt important to make this clear.

"I comment disparagingly on what you're about to do," he said. "That's different. I don't try to stop you."

The man's face fell. "Do you not – have you no interest in the sport of cloud and rain?"

Baze did something he would later have cause to regret. He told the truth.

"No," he said. "Sex is fine, just not – I'm not interested in sleeping with people who've been paid for it."

"You are in luck, my friend!" said the man, pleased. "I am not paid a single credit to be your host. I'm a slave."


Baze is on security detail on a luxury Hutt transport when he meets the worst sex slave in the galaxy. Weirdly, not actually an AU.

“You need not thank me,” Emhyr said. “I have an ulterior motive.”

It annoyed Geralt to be surprised. He should’ve known from the start. “Yeah?” The words came out with a little bite. “Have another daughter you need me to track down?”

“If I wished to hire you, I would hire you,” Emhyr said. “No: I want you to come to my bed.”

"We can't just let you wander away into the middle of Manhattan with a gun!" Wren turned to Nathan. "And since when do your bodyguards carry guns?"

"Since that third attempt on our records," Ingram said pointedly. John didn't bother sticking around for the rest of their debate. He turned towards the elevator and pushed the button. It made a soft ding and opened immediately.

"All right, that's far enough," Wren said, sounding deeply irritated. "Stop."

John's hand dropped to his side. He didn't really notice. The world had dropped away, into soft and dark and quiet. His muscles were all unwinding, knots that were decades old coming undone, an endless grating background noise suddenly gone. It wasn't pleasure exactly, it was relief: like suddenly being able to take a deep breath, suddenly being able to rest. His whole body felt heavy, liquid.

From the Editorial Page of the Falchester Weekly Review (A Lady Trent Story) | Tor.com
Dear Sirs—

I was fascinated by Mr. Benjamin Talbot’s brief notice, published in the 28 Seminis issue of your magazine, detailing his acquisition of a preserved specimen from a heretofore undocumented draconic species. As we all know, legends of the cockatrice date back many centuries, but I am unaware of any reputable examples collected before now, either dead or alive. This is a thrilling event for the field of dragon naturalism, and I heartily encourage Mr. Talbot to publish his discovery at greater length, including details such as the manner of its acquisition, the island or archipelago in the Broken Sea where such beasts may be found, and a thorough description of its anatomy.

[Harry gets sorted into Slytherin for Eighth Year, a curse causes soulmate names to be revealed on wrists, and creating families-of-choice]
Harry doesn’t mind that so many Slytherins from his year have returned to finish their NEWTs, really he doesn’t. It’s just – do they have to be so friendly? He’s not prejudiced, really he’s not. It’s just – they’ve got to be up to something, right? Unnerved by the attention he’s attracting from everyone – the Slytherins are the least of it, to be fair – and struggling with a raft of changes to Hogwarts itself, Harry wishes he could be happy that one constant remains: Draco Malfoy really fucking hates him.

When he’s hit by an illegal love-spell though, Harry finds he has more to worry about than whether or not Blaise Zabini actually wants to be his friend. For if everyone affected has been blessed – or cursed, by the look on Malfoy’s face – with a magical tattoo revealing the name of their soulmate, what does it mean that Harry’s skin remains completely bare?

When he opened his door three weeks into the term and found Reggie Mantle standing on the other side of it, it came as something of a surprise.

“Look,” said Reggie, right off the bat. “I need to crash here for the night. My roommate kicked me out. And you owe me, so don’t argue.”

“I don’t owe you,” said Jughead. “No one owes you. You owe them. Since when do you even go here?” He would have expected Reggie to go to some fancypants school that would give him bragging rights for all time. But the newspaper business wasn’t doing so well these days - maybe his parents didn’t have the money they used to.

“Since September, same as everyone else. Are you going to let me in or not?”

My Dearest Mabel,

It was so kind of you to invite me to spend the holidays with you and it makes me feel positively green to think of all the fun I'll miss out on by declining – the skating! The parties! The tree! - but decline I must. Father has already arranged for me to board with a woman named Mrs Holst, an old friend of my mother's who lives on a limited income and cannot be deprived of the money she would get from my lodgings unexpectedly. According to mother she had hardly any suitors and her only long term companion was a woman who ran off to become a mermaid over twenty years ago, so father feels very sure I will be kept with convent like security during my banishment. Maybe I'll run off to be a mermaid, that'd show him.

He closes his hand over the bright glitter of the ring, and lets the empty spaces inside himself ache. He doesn’t even know what for. Or, more honestly, he won’t allow himself to know what for. He leaves the ring twinking by itself on the counter and climbs the stairs to take his sore head and heart to bed.

The fact of the matter is both romance and speculative fiction often have completely ridiculous, implausible, and wholly inappropriate things going on and yet only one of them is predictably portrayed as something readers should be ashamed of liking. ...

Is it because we, as a culture, don’t value stories about emotions and connection? Why not?

Is it because we don’t value works written (primarily, but absolutely not exclusively) by women for women? Why not?

How the tech sector could move in One Direction — Sacha Judd
And it seemed like it was okay to be obsessive online about some things, but not others. This obsessive project, which took eighteen years to complete, is amazing. Someone tracked down every single song ever sampled by the Beastie Boys. 286 tracks, 22 hours of music. All beautifully encoded. It was shared really widely on social media.

This collection of 3,419 videos of One Direction? Every single interview and appearance and live performance? Well, that’s just “crazy”.

As an aside: when I needed to remake a gif at a higher resolution for this presentation, it took Megan about three minutes to identify the clip and send it to me. Just from a photo of Louis’ outfit. That’s an archivist.

... That’s our diversity pipeline. Right there. Glued to their computers.

step out into the sun - plutos - Star Wars - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
“I gotta talk to you, buddy, real quick,” Poe says lowly, and grabs Finn’s hand to haul him back out of the mess hall. His pilot friends cheer loudly, Karé yelling something about keeping it decent, and Finn barely has a second to process it before Poe’s yanking him away and into a deserted side corridor.

“I can explain,” he says quickly, running his spare hand through his hair.

“Well good,” Finn snaps hotly, “Because I’ve had a really fucking weird day.”

i wished for you - oops_ohdear - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
"The plan is," PK says, "that I can't fall in love, because this guy is the only person I can fall in love with, and he doesn't exist."

"That's a dumb plan," Malcolm says immediately. PK rolls his eyes. He's about to try and, like, wrap the spell up—he doesn't actually know how it's supposed to end, his mom's book was a little vague on that point—when he's struck by inspiration.

"And he'll be a goalie," he says. "The best goalie in the entire world."

“Okay,” Paris says, again, gesturing towards her erratically, “Here’s the plan. We need to make good on that admittedly questionable spring break kiss of our youth—that way, people will assume that we’re a lesbian power couple instead of two pathetic rapidly aging losers with no prospects whose freaking hearts go all a-flutter when they see a cute boy.”

“We’re not—anything in that sentence,” Rory says.

In which alternate universe Boston had 4th pick and Washington had 5th pick in the 2006 draft, and in which alternate universe the NHL is kind enough make accommodations for players’ personal circumstances. For instance, to allow Washington to pick Alex Ovechkin’s absolutely true, definitely not fake, 100% not-made-up fiancé to come play for the Caps.

“You what,” Alex says. “Alex Ovechkin’s who?”

—and its aftermath, through the years.

these little powerless bones - dirgewithoutmusic - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
when the hat drops over her eyes it asks, 'well what do we have here?'

she’s got a forged hogwarts letter with penmanship that’s perfect down to the ink splatter;

she’s got a complicated string of owls, only half of them forged, from parents to administration to ministry that’s so complicated her name ended up on the first year roll call anyway.

she’s got ten arguments, four pleas, and one smothered threat on the tip of her mental tongue for why the house that comes out of this hat’s brim better not be 'squib'

she’s got a lighter up her sleeve and an eight and a half inch wand in her belt that will never, ever work for her.

'well,' says the hat, 'better be slytherin then

Conor's not exactly sure what the protocol is when the namemark on your wrist belongs to best player in the world (and your new captain), and you're an undrafted kid out of UMass. Do you wait for him to say something first? Yeah, better wait for him to say something first.
