northernsparrow: Forgotten
Sam and Dean are working a case in Wyoming, but are distracted by news of a dangerous angel called "Castiel" who they can't remember ever having heard of before. The name seems a little bit familiar, but neither of the boys is sure why.

AU from mid-S9. Excellent casefile that blossoms into some cool epic worldbuilding (continuing in the sequel), with heaping helpings of whump and TFW feels, and a perfectly agonizing amnesia mystery.

Castiel awakens in a forest with an empty feeling in his chest and a deep sense of dread.

galaxysoup: Hail Mary
Take one newly human ex-angel on the run from Heaven. Combine with one mysteriously resurrected and increasingly pissed off Mary Winchester. Add overtones of Apocalypse. Shake well.

S9 AU. I still can't believe this got Kripke'd, but that's SPN fandom for you. This one definitely wins my heart on the basis of Mary and Cas's beautiful friendship.

splinter: Guarded
Max dreams about hands. This is a familiar nightmare: being held and trapped by many grasping fingers. It’s suffocating, as if each touch on his skin was smothering. He wakes in panic from those dreams, fear of contact tangled up with blood and the accusing faces of the dead.

Very rarely, he has a different kind of dream. Sprog holding his hand, or tugging at Max’s trouser leg as if he could climb up him, smiling when he’s lifted and held. Jessie’s hands, ruffling his hair or pinching his bum, precise and steady when she played her saxophone or signed. He dreams of her fingers, stroking idly down his arm, cupping his face or working at knotted muscles in his back.

Gorgeous character study about touch-starvation, with awkward cuddling. *heartclutch*

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.

consumptive_sphinx: and we'll figure it out
Everyone is born with their soulmate's name written on their skin, somewhere.

A soulmate is not necessarily a romantic bond — it could be your truest friend, your closest comrade, or your deepest enemy — and you don't necessarily have just one. But whoever they are, your world will not be separate from their world; your life cannot be disentangled from their life. Aviators almost always have the names of their dragons.

Laurence has two names. Neither of them are in a script he can read.

afrai: Friendship!!! Is Magic
She edged closer to the refreshments table. She wasn't the first to think of this: there was another person there. He was dark-haired – Asian, perhaps? More importantly, it was evident he didn't want to be at the party any more than Haruhi. He was radiating discomfort.

You didn't spend years in a host club without developing certain instincts. Haruhi said to the stranger:

"The food's good, isn't it? Have you tried the small quiches?"

In which Victor is hilariously jealous of Yuuri and Haruhi making friends, and Haruhi likes Yuuri's skating as an insomnia aid but is totally inured to Victor by years of Tamaki exposure, and everyone is so in character it hurts.

"Stay," Andy says later, still smiling, when they're sitting in the shade of the boat—Andy's boat. "I need a man who knows how to get things."

Red looks down at his hands, feeling old and tired and lost. Forty years is a long time to be away from the world. "Andy—" he starts. I'm not that man anymore.

Andy puts his hand on Red's shoulder. "I need a friend," he says, smile fading.

Each time Rocket thinks that he has a good chance to catch it unprepared, to take it out before he even starts the job, the tree does something ridiculous. Like helping someone fix their hover car.

Or growing little berries in his palm to feed a homeless, skinny kid.

a_t_rain: A Bit Too Much Good Work
Behind the scenes of Captain Vorpatril's Alliance, Byerly grapples with bomb threats, Council of Counts politics, fallout from a previous case, and the difficulty of maintaining a romance when one's profession blurs the lines between lovers, colleagues, witnesses, and suspects.

A fun and twisty romp (what else, with By?) neatly woven into the background of CVA. The author's written a number of shorts around this version of By and his history at ImpSec but sadly hasn't put them in any kind of order, so my favorites (in chronological order for my own reference; some of these I've recced separately as standalones)--

Captured in battle and stuck in the Mede capital, Costis has given up all hope of seeing his country again. But Eugenides has a habit of turning up where he's least expected.

Definitely falls in the 'so absurd only Eugenides would try' category of competence porn, with Costis quietly panicking while also backing him up and trying to figure out their friendship. This story is completely delightful in all directions.

speranza: Mangy Dog
"Keep him?" His father was looking at him with amused tolerance: a look that Benton privately detested. "What do you want a mangy dog like that for?"

Parallels Fraser's friendship with Dief and his relationship with Ray. Right in the feels, every time. (AO3: http://archiveofourown.org/works/252696)

norah: Where I Myself Can Not
"To this end we are sending to you, with much sadnesse for the loss of her fair presence, our handmaiden Lady Anne Ashley, whom we desire you should set to the Longwinge egg which even now hardens at the Covert."

Fantastic story based on the throwaway canon line about Elizabeth I, featuring political deviousness and female friendship.

kiarasayre: and if they don't dance (well they're no friends of mine)
In which Uhura helps Kirk learn a traditional dance for his brother's wedding. Completely charming and funny (*such* good banter), and I love the way their friendship quietly solidifies even while staying prickly and exasperated on the surface.
