i will choose what i believe - nevershootamockingbird - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
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.”

the planets don't know why he's holding on - kimaracretak - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
Kashaw, and the long slow climb back from nothing. [2923]
One thing he never tells Zahra about is the anger.

He could give plenty of reasons for that. It's about his past, and he and Z don't talk much about that ever since their pledge that if one of them identifies someone as a hunter, the other fights without question. It's never come up, even in the silences where it could have but where trust took hold instead.

But the truth is, even now he isn't sure how much anger is his and how much is his wife's.

The Home of the Wolf - Edonohana - The Punisher (TV 2017) [Archive of Our Own]
Frank muttered something David didn’t understand. Then he coughed, spilling more blood over Sarah’s hands, and whispered, “Home.”

David blinked back tears. “Yeah. You’re home.”

“Frank,” Sarah said. “Listen carefully. ‘On the ragged edge of the world I’ll roam, and the home of the wolf shall be my home.’” It was one of the poems from the key book; David hadn't known she'd memorized any of it. With emphasis, she repeated, “‘The home of the wolf shall be my home.’ You don’t have to say it aloud. Just think it.” [6348]

The Mighty Nein bring Molly back without any memories, but in True Molly Fashion, he decides not to tell them. [2892]
Nott tugs on his sleeve and asks, “Are you sure you’re okay to travel? If you don’t want to go all the way out, yet, we could wait a little longer.”

Molly takes a shot in the dark.

“When have I ever been someone who liked waiting around?”

“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]

Scenes from a life where Sasuke was born first - Natarie - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
Otou-san said things like that sometimes, about Itachi being better. As if it mattered that Itachi could have graduated the Academy before Sasuke if he and Kaa-chan hadn’t held him back, or that somehow Itachi always understood what their Otou-san tried to teach him better and at a younger age than his Nii-san.

Being able to hit a target didn’t help him understand people, especially the way they said one thing and did another, even when it was a regular day and not for a mission. And they didn’t understand him—that being good at being a shinobi didn’t mean he liked it or that he wanted it. He wasn’t cheating or doing in on purpose for attention, it was just the way he was.

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.

Garden in Dol Guldur - esama - The Hobbit (Jackson Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
While Gandalf explored the ruins and investigated the remains of those that had lived there, Bilbo walked along the ground, digging his toes into the dry, parched soil. There was life brewing underneath, he could feel it, it pulsed on the soles of his feet and it felt… peculiar and wrong and familiar, all at once. The orcs had grown something in the soil of Dol Guldur – but what? Bilbo was no green toe, but even he could tell the difference between a plant and this, whatever this was.

"What do you mean, what they grew?" Gandalf asked him suspiciously when he enquired about it. "They are orcs and goblins – they can grow nothing."

"I can feel it though," Bilbo said and poked the dry earth with his toes. "Something grows underneath – and it's dying."

Gandalf frowned deeply, watching him and then looking at the earth. "Hmrh… best leave it be and let it die, then. Whatever orcs grow can't be good."

Bilbo scowled after him as the wizard headed off to continue his investigation. Let it die? Let an earthen thing that grew on soil, sickly or not, die? What did Gandalf think he was – a Dwarf? [1906]

Look at My Hands, Don't Look at My Hands - kittykatthetacodemon - The Magnificent Seven (2016) [Archive of Our Own]
It's the late 1800s, and one in four folks out west in the precarious settler communities develops a gift, a unique power that gives them some kind of advantage. Sam Chisolm has enhanced senses. Billy Rocks is damn hard to kill. Goody doesn't have a gift, unless you count being a stone-cold badass when the mood strikes. Vasquez is an empath, Red Harvest controls lightning, and Jack Horne can see the future. Emma Cullen, their new employer, can sometimes raise the dead.

And Faraday? Well, he's harmless, really. He's got his own skills, a bit of this and that. Nothing to worry about.

Or: that one AU where everything is the same, except nobody dies and also they have superpowers. [15,610]
“Now, I’ve got no powers,” he said. “No gifts to speak of, save my good looks and God-given talents.” Faraday found himself impressed; most snipers had a little something extra for their aim. “But my friend Billy, here, he’s got something I like to call cockroach tendencies. It is nigh-on impossible to kill this man. Why, I once saw a man put a gun to the back of his head and pull the trigger, and Billy’s still here.”

“What happened?” Teddy asked, clearly not believing it.

Robicheaux waved a lazy hand in his direction. “Oh, the gun backfired. Damn near blew off the fool’s arm, and Billy didn’t so much as flinch.”

“I turned around and gutted the man, Goody,” Billy told him, dry as bone. “I’d call that more than a flinch.”

Blood, Coffee, & Motor Oil - underwater_owl - Mad Max Series (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
A coffee shop AU. Except more complicated. A small town setting, Furiosa is the local mechanic, too much a black sheep in town to be having the easiest time of it. Max is working the local coffee shop, for something to do and a soft place to land while he recovers from raging PTSD incurred during his police work, and Citadel, Australia, is about as small and sleepy a place as it's possible to get, right? The Wives are the residents of a rather discretely run home for abused women that Furiosa supers for when she isn't in her shop. The lesbian separatist feminist motorcycle gang is literally just that.

This is a love story, hinged around a missing person, a suspected homicide, a broken carburetor, and a mutual disdain for pretentious coffee. [41,100]

Finn runs a hand over his face. "That blocker could have a hundred mile radius."

"I have a feeling you're not enthused about potentially dragging a damaged X-Wing around for a hundred miles."

In which Wells Jaha gets a little bit of the love he deserves.
Jasper leaves, calling Monty's name, but the other boy stays standing in front of Wells, as if he's trying to make up his mind. Wells thinks about walking off himself to save Monty the inner turmoil, but before he can, Monty's saying, "I know you're sorry, but give us some time." Wells gives Monty a smile and pretends he believes that he still has one friend left, but it's only a movement of muscles. Clarke is the heart of their group, whatever she might think. Wells has only ever been the childhood friend, and he's outstayed his welcome now, regardless of whether or not he did what they think he did.

Monroe's Fairytale Halfway House - mrsvc - Grimm (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Monroe looks at Nick, with his bright blue eyes and his silly teenage boy hair cut, and he thinks maybe it isn't so silly, that Barry thought they were together. It should be ridiculous, a Grimm and a Blutbad, and it kind of was, but right now, Monroe saw it as a whole different type of hilarious.

Natalia is stacking blocks very carefully when the adults come into the room. None of them look at her, because they're all looking at her father. He's wearing combat gear, and the hair on the left side of his head is slicked back with blood. He smells like smoke and something unnameable, sweet and dark and a little sickly in her nose.

Father is saying, “Don't be ridiculous. The only thing children are good at is disobeying.” [19,199]

"There are rumors about you", Furiosa says, pulling away and striding purposefully around her room, setting things into their proper places.

Max tracks her with his eyes, shrugging one shoulder. He knows he has a reputation. It doesn't mean he cares.

"They say you never return to a place once you've been there", she says slyly, watching him from the corner of her eye.

The ghost of a smile tugs at the corner of his mouth and he relaxes against the doorframe, crossing his arms. "Can't believe everything you hear." [357]

"If we're doing this thing, we're doing it all the way. You understand? We don't back down until we leave with them. No matter what."

“You cannot break a wall with your forehead.”

“Maybe you’re just not trying hard enough.”

“Hush,” she says, the marker still moving. “It's better to stumble than to fall. Don't wake up trouble while it sleeps quietly.” She moves back to the first arm, working around his wild scribbles and filling in the empty places. “Don't swing fists when the fight is over. It will either rain or snow; it either will or will not.”

“I’m going to run out of skin at this rate,” says Clint. The words come out sounding almost hopeful, and he grinds his teeth, wishing they hadn’t.

Within the one month John leaves them with you, you fall and fall hard for them.

It’s the way they look scared of the dark, the way their big eyes follow you around, the way they sit in front of the telephone, waiting for their father to call. The way they play with your lousy guard dog, the way Dean spends twenty minutes staring at you before deciding that it’s alright to ask you for help with getting something from the uppermost cupboard in the guestroom.

In the end, Drax is given the painting he saved as thanks, in an elaborate ceremony at city hall. Peter and Gamora have been working with him on how to behave appropriately amongst species which persist in using the cultural constructs of politeness and white lies, so he forces a smile in response. Privately, he wonders what he is expected to do with an enormous, heavy thing which serves no discernable purpose. [2338]
Somehow word of Drax’s noble painting-saving gets out, and the next three diplomatic gifts he receives are art related. At Drax’s expression on receiving the third – an enormous, beautifully embroidered painter’s smock – Peter wheezes with laughter so hard he has to sit down.

Drax now owns an easel, a palette and a huge chest of paints which smell odd. And, as of today –

“A dress!” Rocket cackles delightedly, rolling all over the floor of the ship.

“I fear the universe is laughing at me,” Drax laments. Gamora hides her smile in her hair.

A fast ship, a good crew, a treasure, a Clan to lead -- that's all Arthur Pendragon has ever wanted. He sits on the Council, he supports his father's kingship, and he keeps an eye on the Imperial Conglomerate when they come too close to Pirate space.

One day the Conglomerate infiltrates the Clans and poisons the King. Arthur must search for a cure to keep his father alive and the Clans from civil war.

An escape route, a sharp knife, a target, the shadows at his command -- that's all Merlin has ever needed. He fulfills his assignments, he uses the Sterling to sustain his once-royal House in their exile, and wages a private war against the Imperial Conglomerate.

When he learns of an elaborate plot to assassinate him, Merlin does the opposite of what's expected. He flees onto a Pirate ship.

There's a saying among the Pirates: that one's fate is written in the stars. Destiny will always set to rights what has been made wrong. [169,425]

"Oh," Jack said, soft and awed, and Sandy opened his arms desperately, pushed at Jack's shoulder to turn him towards him and opened his arms in instant, instinctive invitation. Jack gulped, swallowed silently, and then lunged forward. Then scooped Sandy up, so much larger and so much younger, and pulled Sandy in to rest against his wildly-beating heart. Frost spiraled down his arms and across Sandy's suit in his agitation, feathers of ice patterned into the grain of golden soul-sand, and Sandy cared not the slightest. He pressed as close, held as tightly, and hugged Jack as close as stubby arms could bring him.

Friend, Sandy thought desperately, thought as loudly as he could, pressing his face into Jack's chest to press it home. Friend, forever and always. Never unwelcome again. Remember it, Jack. Please, never forget it. Not ever again.

And it was silent, all his words were always silent, but silence was a thing Jack was so very used to listening to. [3376]

Escape Velocity - miss_pryss - Lilo & Stitch (2002) [Archive of Our Own]
Lilo had been training for the life of a space adventurer since she met Stitch, though David once told her he’d thought she was destined for weirdness—“I mean greatness”—even before he came into their lives. “You would have found a way somehow, no matter what,” he said.
The first time the gravity field went on the fritz, Lilo awoke from a dream about swimming in the bay back at home, gliding effortlessly underneath the waves, the Hawaiian sun cutting through the water like a smile, to find herself face-to-face with a floating Stitch. He was waving a screwdriver in her face and gabbling in rapid Galactic Standard. A droplet of drool had escaped Lilo’s sleeping mouth and hung in the air between them, gleaming.

“Blerghidworfenblot,” Stitch said again.

“English,” Lilo insisted blearily. They hadn’t been in space that long, and her Standard was still pretty poor. It’s one thing to wake up in zero G with your toes tangled in hammock netting. It’s another to keep track of twenty-seven declensions and a lot of very specific technical jargon under those circumstances.

Stitch’s English wasn’t a lot better than Lilo’s Standard.
