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.

iamshadow21: Lucky Pennies
In Clint Barton's official SHIELD file, there is a supplemental form with a string of letters and numbers indicating a superhuman ability. On it, there are two pieces of information. The first is 'Asset-Reported Ability (unverified)'. The second is 'Combat/Field Applicable Ability Y/N'. 'N' is circled.

In which Clint can pick out genuinely lucky pennies for people. I really love this magic for Clint, it's very him: seemingly ordinary and everyday, until it's not.

island_of_reil: The Winter Emperor
The Princess Sheveän does not heed Maia’s demand to bring Idra to him, but instead has Maia rendered unconscious and taken to the monastery in the north. 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.

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.]

manic_intent: Strange Sights, Strange Wonders
In the glade where the star had fallen, the gloom of the gnarled old woods was deeper than night, save around the blackberry bush that had broken his fall: the grass and the battered leaves were now luminous, moon-touched. There was a long pause, broken by the sounds of twittering insects and the forest folk, then, there was a loudly groaned, “Fuck!”

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.

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.

Dean is a police detective in a world where magic is used regularly, except for necromancy -- which is why it's a terrible idea for Dean to summon Castiel, incarnation of Justice, to help him solve a little girl's murder that's literally haunting him. The worldbuilding in this is AWEsome, and Cas is wonderfully alien and cranky and weird (and eventually, totally in love with Dean), just as he should be.

moonlettuce: Am I Origami
Dean hates witches. Hates them with a passion. Hates their potions and their spells and their cats that try to trip him up every time he's trying to kill one. But most of all, he hates the way they feel totally at ease with fucking up his life. There he is, minding his own goddamn business and then bam, a trio of insane witches drops another you in your lap.

nixa_jane: Stigmata
Dean never used to believe in faith healers, and the irony of this newfound ability is not lost on him, but he just tells Sam he's not getting himself a fucking tent or a ticket booth, so he'd better damn well not ask.
