bendingsignpost: Cinderwings
Under the cover of a masquerade ball, Castiel has five nights to recover the key to his people's freedom. The world has changed greatly in the six centuries since their banishment into the void, but the task isn't impossible. Unfortunately for Castiel, this is going to involve talking to people - especially the Knight Prince who has taken an interest in Castiel and his "costume" wings.

For a love story that kicks off over five nights, this sure has the *feeling* of a slow burn. Fantastic, creative, and plotty Cinderella AU.

cygnaut: He Just Wouldn't Stay Away
Max comes back in a busted old van with an even more busted leg. It’s not a social call—there’s a new threat out in the wasteland making its way toward the Citadel.

Fun action romp in which Max and Furiosa go out undercover to sabotage a new enemy’s army, and continue to be the most drift-compatible ever while also figuring out how their friendship works when they’re (mostly) not in imminent peril.

astolat: The Revolutionary
Ratchet turned his head to see that the yelling was coming from Starscream, who was at nearly the front of a conveyor belt they were all clamped on, which was heading straight for a neural destabilizer field, with a whole forest of cutters and clamps waiting after it -— oh Primus, they’d landed on a disassembly line.

There's some very tangential pairing action (and a bot orgy), but mostly this is gen action-horror with a side of revolution when a mixed group of Autobots and Decepticons crash on a creepy planet full of enslaved mechs.

Freeport colony: a notorious den of pirates, smugglers and thieves. Wufei persuades one of its denizens, his one-time ally Duo, to help him catch a killer hiding there. Agent Chang thinks he knows what to expect from this case, from Freeport and from Duo Maxwell. He couldn't be more wrong.

Reads like a long, awesome original novel if (like me) you're only passingly familiar with the canon, with complex worldbuilding and lots of twists in the investigation and a great slow-burn relationship. (AO3:

Phil Coulson has been the Keeper of North Bar, and about half hermit, for fifteen years by the time he finds the wounded man lying on the beach in the wake of a storm. (Actually-- it was the dog that found him; blame the dog.)

Clint Barton has been a circus act, a mercenary, a spy, and a superhero-- now he’s a wanted man, and a half-drowned one to boot.

When they start trying to clear Clint's name, events spiral out of control in ways they can't imagine. Their lives will never be the same -- and neither will the Avengers, SHIELD, and the entirety of Long Beach Island, NJ.

shadydave: Love is All You Need to Destroy Your Enemies
There are a few things that Carlos may have neglected to tell Cecil. Like his last name. Or how he hasn’t actually dated anyone since his junior year of high school. Or that he’s a wizard of the White Council and the regional commander of Wardens in the western United States and not, in fact, a scientist. You know. Minor details.

Insane yet brilliant crossover where Carlos Ramirez is in fact Carlos the Scientist due to some serious time travel shenanigans. Perfectly captures the weird hilarity of Night Vale (and somehow stays canonical through Old Oak Doors, ish) and the whacky sweetness of Cecil and Carlos's romance, and the actual scientists who team up with Carlos are among my all-time favorite OCs.

“You know, I always used to think that—that everybody knew, and they just didn’t have the balls to follow through.”

“Knew what?” Dom said.

“The next move. Where to go. But now—” Brian stopped and swallowed. “Now I know every move, for the whole next quarter-mile. And now I know that everybody doesn’t see it, because I didn’t use to.”

astolat: Life Sentence
Dom did know one bonded pair on the circuit, a couple of girls. Nobody raced them if they knew better; mostly they got paid by promoters to show up and show off, or open up street room for other racers. Lights switched for them, holes opened up in traffic, they got a little extra juice from their engines right when they needed it. Letty’d told him she’d seen one of them flip her car once, a whole three hundred sixty in the air, and it’d come down on all four wheels without losing so much as a tire rim. That was what this mission needed: two drivers with the whole goddamn universe on their side.

neery: Winter's Children
When their attempts to recreate the super soldier serum failed, Hydra started trying to breed Captain America clones from his genetic samples. Unfortunately, the serum's effects aren't passed down genetically, so instead of an army of tiny Captain Americas, they get a bunch of tow-headed, asthmatic, allergic, immuno-compromised little Steves. And then the Winter Soldier stumbles across Hydra's failed experiment...

I am still so delighted that Neery let me bully her into writing this. The Winter Soldier on a violent road trip from hell with a bunch of tiny Steve clones, everyone is super traumatized, and everything is feels. If gen fic is more your jam, you can check out the original WIP, but the revised Steve/Bucky version is my favorite. <3

gaelicspirit: Devil's Own
Matt and Foggy take a case involving Matt’s old orphanage, St. Agnes, and a lot of Matt's emotional baggage gets stirred up.

This story feels like it got pulled out of a six-episode arc of the show, and included many things I love: the whole ensemble (including Father Lantom!), Matt getting beat up physically and emotionally, plot, found-family feels, and action.

bubblewrappedkitty: The Curiosity Game
Clint Barton knows that boredom is dangerous; it tends to lead to him doing stupid things. Stupid things like making bets with Tony Stark about which one of them can find and befriend the Daredevil of Hell's Kitchen first.

Hilarious, but also smart and featuring a suitably paranoid Matt, which is (to me) a key element missing from most of these crossovers.

zillah975: Something Worth Dying For (The Grifters, Thieves, and Losers Job)

jumpingjackflash: The God Eaters
Vaguely Western-steampunk fantasy where two prisoners escape together after being experimented on, and discover their true natures and love along the way. Slow to start but picks up considerably once they escape, and the worldbuilding is much better than the writing, but I enjoyed it enough to reread it despite its flaws.

named-by-rhyme: Honey, Wheat, Stone
"Well," says Doctor Professor O'Connell in the sudden darkness, before Indy can even get his breath back, "we know where we are standing right now is not immediately fatal." She takes a deep breath as Indy's fumbling for the lighter he'd pocketed earlier, shouts "RICK!" at ear-splitting volume, then sneezes at the dust she just stirred up.

never_says_die: How These Days Grow Long
Really fun S1 AU where Daryl and Glenn were in an established relationship pre-apocalypse and got separated in the fall of Atlanta, each thinking the other died. Daryl still ends up with the quarry camp, Glenn with another group. The romance is pretty sappy, but the author does a great job of following through the ramifications of Merle's absence and changing the course of S1 events, and has a bunch of excellent and original action sequences with some high-grade Daryl feels, which is exactly my jam.
