Overturn - serendipitousDescent - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
The wind moves through his dirt-streaked hair as he looks out on a broken village. His life must be quickly coming to a close now, each second bringing him closer and closer to the end he's desired for years. Giving up isn't so difficult when there's nothing left to fight for.

Then Obito tells him he's only one suitable for the job.

And fighting isn't so much a choice as it is something he's flung into head-first, his last decision ripped away from him in its entirety. But if he doesn't have a choice, he might as well try his best now that he's here. [179,762]

The Rat King - Rethira - Dishonored (Video Games) [Archive of Our Own]
They call him Everyman first. It makes the Outsider laugh, as much as anything does. The prayers know where to go, even if the name is wrong – they never will get it right, even as Corvo’s mortality fades from memory and he becomes something more than he was – and Corvo’s head rattles with pleas for everyman everyman everyman. It sets his teeth on edge.

The Void starts to fill with rats. That amuses the Outsider too. There is little that fails to amuse him.

“Our sky pirate becomes a soft touch, it seems,” Fran says, with a smile. “Who would have thought it.”

“I’m not the one offering to teach gutter-churls how to read,” Balthier points out, perhaps a touch too loud.

“You’re going to teach us how to read?” Vaan asks, and he’s looking at Balthier as he says it.

“No,” Balthier says, with a shake of his head, “Fran is.” [30771]

“Who are you?” Jack asks.

The man laughs loudly, echoes bouncing off of the dungeon walls. “Why, my dear Jack,” he says, leaning closer and reaching for Jack’s chin, “I am the Nightmare King.”

(A retelling of Beauty and the Beast, with far more sass, a large number of failed romantic dates and an increasingly inappropriate amount of flirting) [33957]

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!]

Captain Cassian Andor tries to define what it means to live after he should have died. His second life is a softer one.

AKA: The working title of this fic was "Three Rebels and a Baby." [105,297]
"We all deserve happiness," Jyn says. "You do, too. I think as long as there's light, we've got a chance for that."

Cassian laughs quietly. "I think you've got a better chance of finding it than I have."

"He's sat by your bed every day since we came back." Jyn squeezes his hand again.

"He's also married to the pilot who picked us up off the beach," Cassian says. It's the first time he's said it out loud, and it catches a little in his throat.

Jyn blinks. "I wouldn't have guessed that."

"I recruited her," Cassian adds, because it seems important to give all the details to the holonovela that is his life now.

Son of the Desert - ShanaStoryteller - Fullmetal Alchemist - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
"That's a bit of a generalization," Edward says, and he feels like he's outside of his body looking in, because he knows what he's going to do, and it's not smart, it's not right, but damn him if he's going to stand here silent while they spew vitriol about what they don't understand, "Ishvalans were once five percent of Amestris's total population, I doubt millions of people are all religious fanatics."

Mustang is watching him now, and Edward hadn't heard him offer anything to the conversation. "I've never met an Ishvalan who isn't religious," Havoc says.

"Our mother was an atheist," Alphonse blurts, and Edward grins, because he does love when he and his brother have the same terrible idea.

"Yeah, but your mother wasn't Ishvalan," Furey says, and Edward doesn't know what the look on his face is but suddenly the office is dead quiet. [10,445]
Hatred has never done him much good. The best and worst things he's done, he's done for love, and he clings too hard to his name to toss it aside like Scar has.

He walks over to him and places a hand over Mustang's, covers the array and looks up into his eyes. Ed's always thought they were black, but this close he can see they're a dark blue. "Al d'ateft atfu'kh, v'sof m'tifaikh ytufun," he says, and Alphonse breathes in sharply behind him.

Home is a strange place. [19,351] [The one where Poe recruits Finn to his new corps of pilots and they fly a recon mission that turns into a marathon hiking trip.]
The realization sinks in. "They set up a transponder blocker."

"I already tried to beam a rescue signal and it just bounced back," Poe agrees.

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."

"We're stranded," Finn concludes.

Monster, the enemy whispers, and Kushina laughs.

“Ready?” she whispers into one sharp ear, and the wind picks up, setting red hair dancing like tongues of flame.

Kurama laughs too, low and heady and full of malice, gathers himself, and leaps forward into a loping run. Kushina bares her teeth, a battle-cry bursting from her lips, and they slam into Iwa’s ranks like a hurricane falling on an unprotected shore.

Monster, the enemy whispers, and Kushina thinks, Yes. I can be that, too.

Tenzō’s gift is desecrated by the touch of the enemy. In the aftermath of the war, Tenzō suffers in silence, ignored and forgotten, slowly falling apart, haunted by the darkest moments of his captivity.

Taking some life advice a step further than probably intended, Kakashi passes the Hat and retires from public life. But Kakashi's empty apartment isn't as comfortable as he remembered.

Their paths have been... difficult. Fortunately, they find the strength they didn't know they had to write their own ending. [25,506]

Life in the Nova Corps meant odd hours and often random meal times, but this suited Garthan, most days. It meant that Errin's stall was quiet whenever he swung by, save for the odd tourist or two, and Errin knew better than to try small talk on an off-hours Corpsman trying to have a good meal in a bit of peace before going back on the beat.

Today, Garthan made it midway through the bowl before his perfect daily moment of peace was ruined by a tourist. Off-worlders were common on Xandar: the planet was an interstellar trading hub, after all, with free trade agreements signed with most intergalactic civs, but years in the Corps had given Garthan a healthy understanding of trouble, and this tourist positively reeked of it.

Chuck isn’t proud of it (he totally is), but he knows that he’s the one that started it. Not with fists, but calling Mako a bitch would have landed him on his ass any day and he knew it before the words left his mouth.

Maybe, maybe, he just wanted to wipe that smug little expression off of the has-beens face, wanted to see him wrecked and of balance.

Wanted to see the fucker look the same way Chuck is pretty sure he looks, every time Raleigh does something kind and sweet and brave. That asshole is a walking reminder of everything Chuck fears, everything that terrifies him, and he just grins and bears it, like it’s nothing at all.

Like he’s better than Chuck.

So Chuck calls Mako a bitch and doesn’t even try to duck the punch.

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.]

Nate lowered his hand and shook his head slightly, resettling his Kevlar and looking out into the glare. He wanted to shrug off the mild concern in Mike's voice, but he knew he could trust Mike with this, as with everything. In fact, he had an obligation to report this to Mike of all people. He was the one who'd have to step in and take command if Nate's brain skipped off to a long summer road trip down I-95 for more than a second.

Nate shook his head again, enough to be an answer. "I just had a fucking Looney Tunes hallucination. I saw the Golden Arches in a mirage, and for a second I was all set to tell everybody to pull off and hit the drive-thru."

"Well, now," Mike said slowly, and Nate smiled slightly at how perfectly unimpressed Mike sounded by that confession; two syllables were enough to give Nate some perspective. It had only been a second; they were probably all seeing things out here.

"I hate to say it, LT, but that would have been a truly questionable command decision." [1386]

Lieutenant Nathaniel Fick of the USS Devil Dog is returning to Earth with the weight of the world on his shoulders: his captain is incompetent, his crew is half in mutiny, and the mission to a distant star may have been more of a failure than anyone could have comprehended. But on the journey back, something in the ship goes terribly wrong—and Nate may have to bear far more than the weight of the world if he's going to keep his men safe. [50,238]

“That kid’s dead cause of you and your bullshit,” says Raylan, which is true, in its way, and not, in so many others.

“Men who think themselves instruments of the Lord are deluded, Raylan,” says Boyd, does not finish it with as you well know.

“Be that as it may, that’s a goddamn terrible way to go,” says Raylan and there’s a flicker of his eyes to the left, and Boyd knows what that is, even if Raylan doesn’t. Raylan’s never been afraid of dying. He’s probably not even frightened by the method. [1172]

“I’m still smarter than you, dude,” he says to Brad, and Brad raises an eloquent eyebrow, but he doesn’t argue, because, yeah, Brad’s smart, but he’s smart enough to know what he’s not. They’re the same, that way, Ray guesses. Smartest guy in the platoon’s a corporal who can’t stop talking with milkshake smeared all over his face, covering scars a coffee maker left wrought on flesh scrubbed red-raw by sun and sand and (carefully ignored) sedition. You couldn’t make this shit up if you fucking tried.


Naive is not a word you could ever apply to Joshua Ray Person, okay. He knew what he signed up for. He knew he was signing in fucking blood. (He knew it was his own.)

But it itched. It itched and he poked at it and scratched at the skin until he saw that blood, felt it beating in his eyes under the baking sun and saw it on the sand of a land so ancient it hurt his head to even think of it, waited every day to die with a placid patience that’d even make the Iceman proud, and then--

--and then, they sent him back home.

Well. They thought they did. [3725]

"Pick a side, and start packing. Transport leaves in thirty," Chuck told him, pointing a finger in warning. Raleigh really couldn't take him seriously though, since he was delicately wrapping Mako's tiny collection of tea cups in bits of newspaper while he said it.

"Transport?" On the table, Chuck's mp3 player was rigged to a pair of speakers and a women was prompting him to get ready to die.

"Chuck suggested we leave. I agreed," Mako explained. Raleigh could point out the sheer improbability of just packing up and leaving. They had the most recognizable faces on the planet. Between the three of them, they had enough popularity to bedazzle a small European nation.

"Where are we going?"

"Where every solider goes when the war's over," Chuck replied. "Home."

Shadowlord and Pirate King - Chapter 1 - Footloose, mushroomtale - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
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]

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. Carwood Lipton, in Montana. How did he go from being the quiet boy no one wanted on their baseball team in PE (even if he could run the bases faster than anyone else) to being the quiet foster father of four? 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?

Sometimes he worries that he will never get the sounds of battle out of his ears.

They follow him: the sharp clanging of swords as shovels shatter rock, the flight of endless arrows in the ropes slithering through their hooks, the roar of a charge in a dislodged boulder being rolled down a slope. Dwarves mine like they make war, or perhaps they think of war as just another mine; the battle-cries are indistinguishable.

Kili is tempted, more than once, to take a blade to his own ears. But Thorin and Fili worry enough as it is, and he has enough sense left to know that this torment resides elsewhere. [3083]

The Hobbit Kink Meme - Prompt Post 3 (closed to new prompts) -- The Shieldmaidens of Erebor, by madame_faust
Dís was a practical woman and when new rumors flew about Orcs and wargs, the certainty of a bloodbath, a second Azanulbizar (on Durin's grave, say it is not so!), she intuitively knew that somehow, this was her magnificent, mule-headed brother's fault.

Wryly thinking to herself that perhaps Thorin neglected to remember that she was responsible for producing another set of heirs for him if her sons fell (and joking about it, even to herself, made her heart clench less in fear), Dís knew this was not a time to remain cloistered, as her grandfather wished it. Looking to the past for wisdom was all well and good, but gaining wisdom from the mistakes of one's kin was better still. Though she might not be King Under the Mountain, Dís was still of Durin's line and when she spoke, her people listened. And her sisters in arms answered her call to battle.
