In a different timeline, Vesh rises from the ashes of the Chroma Conclave. [9962]
“I’m fucking useless, now,” he says, aiming for furious but falling short by a few fucking miles. He sounds-- shit, he sounds weary, sounds guilty, and Kash shuts his eyes against the sharp flash of knowing in Zarha’s eyes. There’s a low buzzing in his ears; he thinks he might be sick. “I can’t help any of you, and I got you all into this mess, and now--”

“And now,” she interrupts gently, hands leaving his skin before she grabs his wrist again, beginning to wind the bandages up his arm meticulously as she continues, “you let us pick up the slack. We came running into this mess on our own volition, Kash. You’ve already done your part.”

Not a Lottery - NevillesGran - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
When Kash read “The Lottery”, he got about a third of the way through before he put his head down on his knees and laughed until he cried. [2378]

Deprivation - SETI_fan - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
“Percy.”

“Hm?” He turned toward Vex’s voice warily, hoping he was looking directly at her as he intended.

There was no sound for a moment and the fear warred briefly with confusion. He was about to ask what was going on when he felt a vague sense of motion near his face. He blinked, bringing his free hand up to investigate and encountered what a brief feel-around revealed to be a slender hand. (Vex’s?)

A hand he realized had likely been waving in front of his face.

“Shit,” Vex breathed. “You can’t see anything, can you?”

Fuck. Embarrassment crept up his neck, but he tried for a note of blasé humor instead. “I can see a rather impressive amount of impenetrable darkness.”

“Wait, so how long have you been following us blindly?” Keyleth asked.

Since the day I met you. “Pretty much since we entered the mound.”

He didn’t need to be able to see to have a pretty good idea of the incredulous looks on their faces. [4065]

“Did it hurt?” Jester asks, her voice high-pitched with excitement. Mollymauk grins, teeth on display.

“Just the right amount.”

“Like, on the neck seems pretty fuckin badass,” Beauregard cuts in, “but that looks like a lot of work and pain.”

And Caleb doesn’t know what in the gods’ name moves him to answer in Mollymauk’s stead. “After a short while you grow used to the pain.” He notices the heads of the three loudest members of their rag-tag group snapping up to look at him, but keeps his eyes focused on the last swig of ale in his cup. Scheiße, how many has he downed since they came in here? “It’s really the time that takes a toll on you.” [7072]

“Is there anything I can do for you?” Caduceus asks the question knowing that there might not be an answer. Caleb is the type who rarely asks for what he needs even when he has a voice. He asks it regardless, as he had asked the mourners who had come to the grove, as he would ask any of his traveling companions, his friends. He remembers all the times he’s seen Nott and Caleb relaxing, one leaning into the other. “I’m very good to lean against.” [1787]

phoenix - openended - Stargate SG-1 [Archive of Our Own]
No one expected the end of the world to come from the Earth itself. It was supposed to be aliens and explosions coming from above, not a maelstrom of earthquakes and volcanoes and floods turning most of the planet into uninhabitable wasteland. When three-fourths of SG-1 crawl out of the rubble that used to be Cheyenne Mountain, they reluctantly have to leave Jack behind, presumed dead. Threats of alien invasion and hostile takeover are replaced by finding food and shelter; daily briefings and offworld missions are traded for security concerns and rebuilding. Through it all, Sam, Daniel, and Teal’c find that there’s more to survival than supplies and a place to wait out the storm.

And sometimes, ghosts of the past aren’t really dead at all. [37,864]

[...At the end of the world, Canada is the only safe place to run to. It takes ten years for their ghosts to catch up.]

In Hamilton's darkest hour, it's surprising that the only person who understands him is the one he was sure wouldn't get him at all. Alpha/Beta/Omega Fic. Alternatively known as the one in which Hamilton and Jefferson slowly fall in love while Hamilton grieves the loss of Laurens and while, oh yeah, Hamilton is pregnant with Laurens' baby. [68,432]

[Possibly the only fic ever written where Jefferson is the most sympathetic character. The only fic I have ever read from Jefferson's POV! The premise is cracky, the summary unpromising, and yet.

Back From the Future: Episode VI The Clone Wars - Ariel_Sojourner - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
In which Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader travel back in time together to the Clone Wars era, have amazing adventures, and save the galaxy. [108,295]
Vader asked, (well, screamed really) at Luke once when they were arguing: why?! Why stay, why bother? Anakin Skywalker is alive. Luke can go to him if he wants his precious Jedi father. Doesn’t Luke know by now that Vader is not going to change, he is not going to suddenly un-Fall, or be nice, or be good? This is who and what he is! Can’t Luke see it? If he can, why does he stay?

“Because you are my father, my family,” Luke says, hand reaching out but never actually touching, never actually connecting. "Family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.“

It is an old Tatooine proverb. Half hope, half prayer because it is nothing more than a fantasy, a lie people tell themselves in the face of ugly reality. Families get left behind and lost all the time on Tatooine, but the poor people of that wretched dust ball still say such nonsense.

His mother used to say it.

Luke is acting like it could be true.

The Revolutionary - astolat - Transformers Generation One [Archive of Our Own]
Ratchet couldn’t quit poking at his own diagnostics afterwards, even though he knew better. On a meta level, he did know what had happened: he’d taken on a heaping truckload of new emotionally-charged experiences and data, and then he hadn’t defragged for forty-nine hours and had stalled out all his conscious emotional routines. So his subconscious routines had pulled all the input down and started chugging through it for him. They were still going. Trying to short-circuit that process now would just give him a bunch of neurological knots and a bad headache, but dammit, he still wanted to know what he was thinking. [45,899]

[I've never watched an episode of Transformers in my life, nor more than five minutes of any of the movies, but I am a *sucker* for the competent-yet-compassionate types. This hit allllllll of my buttons. Astolat strikes again!]

The Last Poem of Jedha - schweinsty - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016) [Archive of Our Own]
How Bodhi Rook temporarily misplaced the two most important things in the galaxy, and how he found them again (with a little help). [15,486]
The first three lines in a naav, of course, are arguably the most important; so called the death poem, they are the only lines in it out of eight hundred that actually address the subject's death. The first line is the subject's name, the second the location, and the third, and only the third, concerns the death.

Bodhi sounds them out to himself before he dips his pen in ink, and he takes care to mark each character cleanly.

Bodhi makes it off Scarif. But he doesn't think he should have. [5453]
A few people in every group are Alderaanian, and their faces look how his feels. He wants to reach out to them, but doesn't know how, so they pass each other, locked in their homelessness, their orphaning.

Bodhi feels like he's been widowed many times, even though he barely knew them—Baze and Chirrut and their deep sufficiency to one another, K-2 who shouldn't even have been possible but was, Jyn with her late-blooming hope, sharp Cassian whose face Bodhi would have liked to touch and see if it could soften. No time, no time. Send them off with Galen, with his mothers and Rohini, with his city. More names to call silently into the darkness.

Five Facts About Goodnight Robicheaux and One About Billy Rocks - Caora (Soujin) - The Magnificent Seven (2016) [Archive of Our Own]
Billy sits him down on the side of the bed and starts to undress him, hands so gentle that it's hard to believe how good they are at death. He works slow and methodical. In a quick-draw he's like the flare of a match, spark and then fire, but now he's taking his time, unbuttoning Goody's waistcoat, getting him down to shirtsleeves.

"Puritan," Goody says.

"Someone had to carry you back." [2039]
Billy has been less a Cesario than a Horatio, propping up the heartsick death-hunting prince, shielding him from the consequences of madness. Goody feels a great deal in common with Hamlet -- rumination, for one, and volubility for another, and of course idiocy and insanity. Billy is the heart's-friend who has come from afar to stand at his elbow and try to save him.

He expects to die in spite of Billy's best efforts, whether by poisoned foil or poisoned wine or letter to England or his own hand. But Billy, somehow, seems to have faith in him.

He just didn't know how deep he would get into it, how strong the connection to the pack would become, how close... they, the four of them, would become to him.

The Moth and the Dark - emungere - Hannibal (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
One of them has to bend. Hannibal decides it should be him. [7511]
“If I am to ransom my heart, let it be for for the darker reaches of your soul. Let it be for everything you struggle against. Light is fleeting, but our monsters never truly leave us.”

“You can’t give me your heart. It’s not safe. I’m not safe.”

Hannibal took his wrist and brought Will’s hand to his chest. His eyes were closing. “Wrap me in your shadows,” he murmured. “I can think of no safer place to be.”

Locker Room Therapy - Asuka Kureru (Askerian) - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
He's never going to know the truth. Minato and Kyuubi are identical twins. There's absolutely no way to prove which one of the two actually fathered him.

(Apart from taking Kyuubi at his word, but Kyuubi lies. Naruto knows that Kyuubi lies.)

It's sordid, is what it is. And that's why he'd rather think about Sasuke punching him, kissing him. It's weird, but at least it's normal-weird. His-life-weird. It's not waking up handcuffed to a lead pipe and being held down as a psycho with his father's face calls him "my son" and carves into his cheeks. [6726]

Sam wanted normal, all his life, he dreamed of normal. Normal has become sacred in Dean’s mind. Lisa’s normal has become sacred. So he ran. Hunted again even though he swore he never would but what else does he have? The inventory of his life is as follows: One car, cherry condition. One body, slightly abused. One mind, a lot abused. One trunk full of weapons, well used. And one brother, dead.

He makes himself think that word a lot. Dead. It feels empty.
She’s the real reason he stopped counting minutes. He just wishes… he wishes he could have met her before. He wishes she could have known him when he was still a man, instead of this fucked up human shaped piece of clockwork, counting, counting, counting.

After the defeat of the Dark Elves, Asgard resumes enforcing its ancient hegemony over the other realms - including Midgard. To defend itself from Asgardian tyranny, Earth must seek alliance with its former enemy: Loki.

“Always remember that the crowd that applauds your coronation is the same crowd that will applaud your beheading. People like a show.” - Terry Pratchett [67,749]

[This hurt a lot to read; Thor isn't my favorite Avenger, but I haven't watched Thor 2 yet and haven't had any reason to have any really awful opinions about him. The character interpretation this author took away from Thor 2 is, honestly, pretty sickening, and yet ze explains hir reasoning so eloquently in the chapter notes that it never felt like it was invalid or character bashing. Overall I felt it was a depressing, yet well-crafted and insightful read.]

"I don't actually remember anything after the ...." Steve looks uncomfortable. "-- incident with the fire escape."

"Really?" Bucky surprises himself with his own delight. "I remember something you don't?"

"When I'm ninety pounds and just drank half a bottle of white lightning -- yeah."

"Steve is hilarious when he's drunk," Bucky tells Tony. "You don't know what you're missing."

Tony seems to have temporarily lost interest in Bucky's arm. "Tell me more. No wait, tell me everything."

Something warm and pleasant swells inside Bucky's chest. It's nice to have a bit of memory about the two of them that he can give back to Steve for a change. "Well, Steve fell into the East River and I had to jump in after him."

"Is that what happened to my clothes?" Steve says. "I always kind of wondered about that." [3102]

They’ve decided to start producing Bucky Bears again, now that he’s all shiny and redeemed and fighting for good on this big Avengers misfits team. "He has a little shiny gray arm," Bucky says, wiggling the stuffed arm in question, one of the tweaks made in the new model. It takes Steve a second to realize that Bucky’s got a small smile on his face, actually looks a little bit proud around the eyes.

Or, Bucky relearns himself and how to be on a team, the rest of the Avengers try to get answers, and everyone watches too much Criminal Minds. [15,620]

Bucky didn't know his hand was going to move until it rested against Steve's hair, the compulsion a strange cousin to his killing reflexes. Even with the couch pillow between Steve's head and his lap, he remembered enough to know that this probably shouldn't be happening.

He stroked, gently, feeling the softness of the other man's hair against the skin of his one real palm. "Steve has no sense of self-preservation," he said finally, sure of this despite the gaps.

Sam's smile was wry. "Yeah, I've kind of picked up on that." Then his expression softened. "I also see the way you look at him. It’s like he's home, and you're trying like hell to figure out how to get back to it." [11,460]

The Stuff That Dreams - Dira Sudis (dsudis) - Vorkosigan Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold [Archive of Our Own]
Her extremities were nearly numb from the restraints, and so at first she didn't quite feel the touch on her right hand. But the pressure against her palm increased and her hand closed convulsively around--fingers. She would know them anywhere. Vorkosigan's fingers, warm and dry against her clammy skin.

Vorrutyer kept talking, seeming not to notice that his true prey was separated from him by only the width of her immobilized body. Cordelia tried to make herself let go of Vorkosigan's hand--he couldn't get away if she didn't let go--but her fingers wouldn't obey her at all, now. And then, under the sickening, hypnotic tide of Vorrutyer's words, she heard Vorkosigan's voice.

"Cordelia," he was saying. "Cordelia, look at me. I'm here, look, it's all right." [1656]

--and then, they sent him back home.

An exploration in Speirs. This is a look at the biggest bad-ass of Easy, from a young age living with his parents in Maine to old age living with his partner, Second Lieutenant C.

From being a war hero and CO of Easy Company to being a handyman that all the women in the neighbourhood called upon? From being rumour-riddled and nightmare-haunted to being loved and care-worn?

many names in history, none of them are ours - aubkae - The Avengers (2012), Marvel (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]

The Avengers live in a world that both glorifies and fears them, but they know each other now behind the scenes.
