Max thought he’d never want to see the Citadel again. He doesn’t exactly have a habit of returning to places where he was held captive and tortured. He doesn’t have a habit of returning anywhere at all.

In which Max keeps returning to the Citadel and Furiosa, and slowly heals. Surely everyone in Mad Max fandom has already read this, but it’s SO GOOD. Long, patiently-drawn slow-build romances are my favorite, and when you pile amazeballs worldbuilding and emotional h/c on top of that, you have my sword.

fialleril: Green
This isn’t Valhalla, though. Everywhere Nux looks are nameless green things and wild water and burning blue stars, but no chrome. No metal at all. No rigs or wagons or shiny warriors riding in glory. So this isn’t Valhalla.

He’s glad.

element78: Followed by the Night
Rick Grimes is a homicide detective whose life has fallen apart. Shattered by his best friend's death and the implosion of his marriage, he leaves Atlanta and moves back to his childhood home of King County, Georgia, to pin on a deputy's badge and pick up the pieces of his life.

Daryl Dixon is a hunter whose brother and hunting partner got arrested for a murder he didn't commit. Tired of his thankless job, he's content to just coast through his new civilian life, until people in town start dying in mysterious, and familiar, ways.

The only way they're getting out of this alive is by working together.

[Vaguely a Supernatural AU in that there is an underworld of hunters and mythical monsters, but otherwise unrelated in characters or plot, so you can read without knowing SPN.]

avocadolove: The Boy Who Spoke With Ghosts
No one suspects Arthur. He's too practical, too organized, too sensible to believe in the supernatural.

Based on the kink meme prompt: Arthur's real name is Cole Sear.

astolat: A Year In Toussaint
Geralt had no damn idea what to do with a vineyard when Anna Henrietta gave him Corvo Bianco, but he figured it couldn’t be that bad.

I have no familiarity with this canon outside of astolat's fic but I think anyone would enjoy this high fantasy epic romcom about an emperor and a monster hunter who end up neighbors in retirement, get dangerously bored, and start adventuring together. Hilarious and plotty.

hollimichele: Rise Up
“I call bullshit,” Abbie said, ten steps into the secret crypt beneath Trinity Church. Ichabod sighed. “We are fifty feet under the most valuable blocks of real estate in America. There’s no way we’re the first people to find this in two hundred years.”

“And yet,” Ichabod said, “it would appear to be so.” Indeed, the crypt had been so cleverly concealed that, even armed with clues, a deciphered passcode, and a small bottle of grave dirt that glowed when they neared the hidden door, it had taken some hours to gain entry.

lightgetsin: Cross
“Because,” Dresden said, “you’re going to bring me back.” He hesitated, looking somewhat sour. “You’re the only one who can, apparently.”

Written post-Changes and obviously jossed, but who the hell cares? Especially when lightgetsin has the best Marcone POV in fandom and works him as an unreliable narrator like this. Wow.

lady chal: The Day of the Dead
On the eve of a world at war, seven families gather for an annual holiday tradition, and an elderly J.D. Dunne tells them how it all began. A happy sort of tearjerker, this gets me every time.

yahtzee63: Phoenix Burning
Buffy is resurrected 350 years after she dives off the tower, along with several other Slayers, into a very different world. Entrancing AU rich with plot and fantastic original characters, and my very favorite Buffy characterization ever. This one's a classic for a very good reason. (AO3:

bookesque: this is not a chick flick
Hades is stabbed by an arrow of love, falls for Persephone, and gets horrendously bad advice from his family over it (and if you have any familiarity with Greek myth and the various romantic failures of the gods, the end result of this advice is deeply unsurprising). Fortunately, Persephone has hidden depths. Cracktastic and adorable.

The angel Castiel has been sent to recruit a soldier for a new struggle to save humanity -- this time, it's a veteran of the battle of Serenity Valley, who has little use for God and His plans. Castiel discovers Serenity is like a prism, each soul it carries reflecting a facet of Dean Winchester.
