“And an aspiring poet, apparently,” Kilgrave quips, releasing Will's head in order to ever-so-slowly pull Will's glasses from his face, fold them, and slide them into his own pocket. “Well now, I do believe you're worth keeping. At least for the time being. Will, Jessica... come along.”

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.

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.]

The star rubbed a hand over his eyes, then flinched and held his hand up, spreading unfamiliar fingers up against the night sky. He turned his hand this way and that, curling and uncurling fingers, then he let out a softer, yet just as vehement “fuck!” and sat up, wincing.

myrmidryad: Eyes to Serve, Hands to Learn
When Grantaire's usual club closes for relocation, he's forced to look elsewhere to find people who share his kinks. And who should he find in the first club he tries but the chief himself?

A lot of porn with secret feelings, basically. Mostly dominant Enjolras and submissive Grantaire.

anonymous: Conferencing
If Marcus is going to call it - this thing he has for E.C. MacCunoval - anything at all, then he'll call it an academic crush. A really small academic crush.

I always somehow forget how adorable and funny this is until I come around to re-read it again, and then I grin the whole way through. <3

anonymous: Angry!Girl Esca
Marcus is not really paying attention when they shove the gladiator's opponent into the arena. There is a gasp, and then a strange silence from the crowd, and he looks up.

It is a woman. She is not a gladiatrix, not with that long tangle of red-brown hair and the look of scornful fury on her face, although she carries a small round shield something like a parma and one of the long Celtic swords. She is tall for a woman, and her short, sleeveless tunic exposes lean, muscular arms and legs. A blue tattoo twists around her right bicep. One eye is surrounded by a fading bruise and her nose looks broken and crookedly healed. She is not beautiful, even without the crooked nose--too angular and thin-lipped, her chest almost flat under her tunic, her hips narrow as a boy's--but she carries herself with a kind of fierce pride that fixes Marcus's attention on her as though she were Venus herself.

Incomplete - the author stopped with them still in Calleva -- but still a compelling genderswap portrayal.

sineala: A Collar of Grass

Another short fic in the same directedverse AU, with continued emotional agony. Oh, Marcus.

sineala: On the Narrow Edge
Marcus likes armor and authority, and no one can ever know. It is therefore a very, very bad idea for him to join the army.

Directedverse AU where Marcus lied about being a submissive so he could enlist. Yessss, feeeeels.

esama: Care and Custody
Eggsy takes out the medal in slightly worse circumstances, asking for a miracle.

A very cozy (for all that it kicks off with Dean murdering Eggsy's mum) but clever AU, with scads of worldbuilding.

maryrobinette: A Study in Serpents -- Being a brief memoir of Lady Trent
In which Lady Trent finds herself consulting with Miss Fisher and Detective Inspector Jack Robinson about a murder involving a giant dragon claw.

This is short but deeply charming and heavy on the Bechdel passing, as one might expect from these canons.

venvephe: Hot Pursuit
It's a decision he makes in a heartbeat: he unlocks the Jaguar with a click, and with one firm tug the door flies open. The young man swears and flops down into the seat, breathing hard and eyes a little wild. He scrabbles to sit upright, and then makes a frantic circling motion with his pointed finger.

“Fuckin’ drive, mate!”
