Sequel to Forgotten, featuring Dean's dumb ass eventually figuring out he's in love after several hundred thousand words, even more Cas whump, and the author's delightfully intricate angel wing headcanon.

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.

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.

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*

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.

He's not entirely sure how he gets from that to Nightingale pontificating about the quality of erotic writing in different languages, conversations about close and not always platonic bonds between wizards and their apprentices, and discovering a whole lot of things Peter hadn't been into before.

And he's been trying so hard not to think about how much he wants to sleep with his boss.

neery: Out of the Woods
There wasn't any special art to picking a lock. It was a mechanical skill like any other, and anyone determined enough could learn it. Klaus was a man famous for his determination.

The lock pick in his hand slid smoothly behind the first pin, hooked in, rotated, pushed up – jammed. Again.

"Rotate it a little more to the left," someone said behind him. Klaus dropped the lock pick, drew his gun, and whirled around in one smooth motion. Only a lifetime's worth of sharply honed reflexes kept him from blowing Eroica's fool head off.

He has no way of knowing that Csevet is coming to break him out of it. Neither of them have any way of knowing the rigors and dangers and griefs — and joys and pleasures — that lie ahead of them as they, and the allies they find and those they re-encounter, struggle to restore him to the throne of the Ethuveraz.

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.

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.

avoliot: The Course of Honour
When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned.

Definitely the best romance novel I've read all year (and considering the binge I went on this winter, that's A LOT of competition): smartly plotted and emotionally tense, great scifi and social worldbuilding, with a lovely slow burn and plenty of humor to leaven the serious trauma that Jainan has to work through.

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:

quasar: J'attendrai
Probationary Constable Peter Grant met me for the first time when I walked up to him by the portico of the Actors' Church on a freezing winter night and said, "Hello. What are you up to?" However, I first met Detective Sergeant Peter Grant when he jogged up to my doorstep on a mild autumn afternoon and said, "There you are, sir. It is you, isn't it?"

kiarasayre: bet these memories follow you around

Clever and excellent to re-read.

alex51324: They Say He was a Soldier, From the Great Patriotic War

Ow, ow, my heart. Simultaneously a very gentle piece of hurt/comfort and quietly unsettling.

copperbadge: The Soldier And The Hurricane
When the Winter Soldier fails to kill Howard and Maria Stark and is taken prisoner in the summer of 1967, his salvation comes in the unlikely form of a Russian-speaking, father-disobeying, endlessly-tinkering seventeen-year-old: Tony Stark.

Fun AU that draws on both the MCU and 616 Silver Age canon in a gleeful plotty mishmash. First story is gen, sequels are slashy.

arsenicjade & hoosierbitch: Like an Arrow Through a Flock of Doves
When he takes the rap for a crime committed by Barney and the Swordsman, Clint is charged as an adult at 17 and spends the next four years of his life without protection in prison. Enter one Neal Caffrey, who knows how to charm his way to whatever he wants or needs, and Clint's life gets a lot more interesting. Pretty much, the story of Clint in prison, Clint getting out, and Clint, like always, finding his way to SHIELD, and Phil.

roguewrld: Clint Barton’s Home for Wayward Mind Wiped Assassins
The guy sitting across his kitchen table with the flyer from the bodega was a killer, Clint knew that right away. He wasn’t exactly dirty but his hair was greasy and not pulled back and he was unshaven. He was the very picture of a man come home from something terrible and he wanted a place to stay.

In which Clint rents an apartment to Bucky post-CATWS, not knowing he's the Winter Soldier and Steve's missing friend. If it was any other Marvel character, this would not work, but Clint's unique mix of being a good guy and being painfully clueless at human relationships makes it perfect. It's also not as cracky as I initially thought - Bucky doesn't just show up at Clint's by coincidence. (note: I highly recommend not bothering with Chapter 2 or the sequel, which are pasted-on unresolved Clint/Coulson and basically unnecessary)
