Changing The View - mardia - Rivers of London - Ben Aaronovitch [Archive of Our Own]
Peter's getting older, not that you can see it in his face. Futurefic. [6140]
I got used to deflecting, waving it off with a "Good genes, I suppose," when someone marveled at how I still looked like I’d just left uni, even when I was in fact a decade older than that.

But I kept getting older, and the comments kept coming.

TtH • Story • Tomorrow, Tomorrow and Tomorrow
When she wakes in the desert, her first thought is that she must have been out longer than she thought. The last thing she remembers is the quickening of the head hunter that challenged her and then…she died. Stab wound in the gut. And faithful as ever, her hated immortality brought her back. No matter how many times Willow apologizes, Buffy doesn’t think she will ever forgive her friend.

But the fact remains that she wakes not in the alley she died in but in the desert, far from civilization with the faint smell of ozone lingering around her. With a grimace she stands and starts walking in a straight line and random direction. [32,802]

Decanus and Samuhel Belgarum, they’d called themselves. Soldier's boys, they’d claimed. Castiel didn’t see youth in their eyes, though, he saw ages and ages of walking the earth, and he wondered. The whole camp had as well, they’d followed the two with whispers that they’d been born out of the mountains, or the heavens. Dioscuri, they were called by the cohort. [5636]

The world has changed. Middle-earth is no more. The Valar have departed, or they are dead. Only one remains to stir the dust of forgotten lands beneath his feet, waiting to fulfil his promise. [6239]

[ugh, this is so freaking beautiful, and so unexpected. I was never quite sure where this was going, but I was pretty sure it was going to end in heartbreak; the happy ending was a wonderful (kinda teary ngl) surprise.]

For as long as anyone in Night Vale can remember, one of the few sure things they could always count on at the end of the day - however difficult, complicated, or unexpectedly long that day may have been - has been the community radio station's nightly news report. [793]

a love song for schrödinger - pathopharmacology (ghostsoldier) - Welcome to Night Vale [Archive of Our Own]
With his own two eyes Carlos has observed a house that empirically doesn’t exist. He’s never seen a quantum particle, but his computer models and lab readouts reassure him of their presence. Cecil – lovely and wonderful and strange Cecil – is comforting and solid in every way…except in Carlos’ peripheral vision, when his edges waver as though the lack of direct observation has left him unsure of what shape he should be.

It means absolutely nothing, to see a thing in Night Vale. [2220]

On Adventures and Other Forms of Conduct Unbecoming of a Wizard - Chapter 1 - manic_intent - The Hobbit (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
For as long as even the old Gaffer could remember there had been a wizard living in the hill at Bag End, overlooking the Shire. As wizards went, this one wasn't the wandering sort, always out to lure gentle folk out onto nasty adventures, or even the powerful kind, the sort that lived in high towers, reaching out into the ways of the world.

No, this was a wizard who was their sort of folk, more of a gentlehobbit than a wizard; why, he even looked exactly like a hobbit, from his modest height - even for a hobbit - to the unruly curls on his head, his equally modest if ageless features, his slowly prospering belly, to his bared and furry feet. Even his name was Hobbitish: "Bilbo" - and although he took no family surname, he was known to be quite fond of the Baggins clan, probably for their solid respectability of character, though, that being said, the wizard Bilbo was generally known to be generous and kindly to all the Shirefolk.

Still, despite having a reputation for stocking a good larder, respectability and gentleness, when the other wizard came striding up to Bag End, in his travel-worn clothes and his bent gray-blue hat, tattered wispy beard tugged by the breeze, the Shirefolk watched, turned, and whispered knowledgeably to themselves. Wizard business, the word spread, slow and self-importantly. Another wizard has come to talk to our wizard, about the ways of the world and its kings.

They would be far more right about that than they knew. [51,530]

pprfaith: Steady
According to the files, Anthony Edward Stark is a second cousin twice removed of Howard Edward Stark, owner of Stark Industries and Stark International.

Clint Barton is a no-one off the street, an acrobat, a circus child. He has no mother, no father, and only a shady paper cut-out for a brother.

Everyone wonders about his past. Everyone asks. No-one ever asks about Tony Stark’s past.

The first time they run into each other, lightning streaks down Clint’s spine, stabs into his brain like a cattle-prod and he thinks, well, fuck me,.

People should definitely be asking about Tony Stark’s past. [2413]

John Grimm, now the Chief Medical Officer of the Enterprise and a fairly likeable man named Leonard McCoy, is beginning to feel like a human again. Then the Enterprise encounters the SS Botany Bay, and events quickly spiral into chaos. The Reaper meets an opponent not unlike himself; except Khan believes the strong has an obligation to rule the weak, and the only way to stop Khan from commandeering the Enterprise is for John to balance on the edge between human and Other, without losing sight of what it means to be both.

ishafel: Relic
It sometimes seemed to Methos that in a thousand years there was only one thing he loved. He won her in war, from another Immortal, and she was too small for Silas, too fierce for Caspian, too plain for Kronos. It took him months to break her to the bridle, and even then she was never truly tame. But she was loyal and brave and generous to a fault, and he rode her sons into battle for thirty years, and their sons and daughters for three hundred more. Her descendants carried him across Asia and Europe, and when he gave up wars they pulled plows, and every one of them was willing and fast and agile as his little mare had been, and every one a gray.

Methos teaches high school biology in rural Alabama for a year, standing in front of an ancient chalkboard, showing grainy film strips, using ancient dissection equipment. He likes it. The kids are handpicked, the best of the area, bright and resolutely determined on a better future. He buys notebooks and graph paper and microscope slides with his meager salary when the county can't or won't pay for equipment. [761]
