northernsparrow: Flight
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.

Phil — where the hell are you, man? Let us know if you're all right, or if there's anything we can do to help. HQ's freaking the fuck out.

Years later, I am still mad about how much this story made me cry. (first story is gen, sequel is C/C and salves the pain...eventually)

laurakaye: Clause 19
It took a special kind of crazy to break into a superhero's apartment and make yourself a pot of his coffee, and a special kind of skill to avoid the various booby traps that said superhero had installed in his apartment after consultation with a technical genius and a super-spy. Kate kind of wished that she'd called Natasha after all.

amalin: Reparo
Voldemort's final defeat does not mean Harry Potter's troubles are over; far from it. In the aftermath of war, he returns to a Hogwarts that is fractured and divided, but this is no break that can be fixed with a spell. New owls, fading scars, surprising alliances-- and along the way, the hardest task of all, to live with it.

Excellent Year Eight fic that deals with the fallout from the war well and in detail, plus a prickly and complicated H/D relationship.

kathar: Washed Ashore
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.

manic_intent: Kingmaker
“Eggsy, I really don’t think-“ Merlin began, and stopped, because at that very moment, Eggsy walked right into a lamp post.

Across the street, at a sidewalk corner cafe, reading a paper, sandwich part-eaten on a plate, sleek, long legs crossed neatly under the table, was Harry Hart.

out_there: Reasons to Shoot a Dog
Where rumours of Harry's death have been greatly exaggerated, Merlin doesn't know if he's Arthur or Martha (and prefers to be neither), and every agent has his own justification for the dog test. Also, Harry is not dithering over his attraction to Eggsy (no matter what Merlin claims).

enjambament: In Our Line of Work
Arthur wakes up and realizes the last ten years of his life have been a dream. He is nineteen, and he can barely remember where he is. What he can remember is the ghost of Eames’ hands pressed down on his chest trying frantically to stop the blood flooding up around his fingers as Arthur died (as he woke up).

fideliant: down dark tides the glory slides
“How do you even lose a tear gas canister?” Eggsy asks incredulously, grinning as Roxy rolls her eyes at him. “Seriously, explain it to me again. I want to see if Merlin’s going to call bullshit as well —”

He stops talking when he flips the folder open and a ghost glares up at him from the grainy photograph paper-clipped to the corner, eyes cold in blurry greyscale.

petrichoral: Charioteer
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.

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?"

Someone is building machines that look and act like people. Meanwhile, the Winter Soldier tries to be Bucky Barnes.

I'm never going to get over this story. It was amazing on the kinkmeme, and even better after Em revised it, and it's 100% emotional agony and robots. What's not to love?

astolat: Let Toretto Be Toretto
It was a joke between him and Letty when Brian first got assigned to the campaign: they’d met the Secret Service team together and it had been all Dom could do not to look over at her as Han said, “Governor, this is Agent Brian O’Conner, he’ll be the head of your personal detail.”

This is an absurd, delightful confection of an AU in which Dom runs for president.

never_says_die: How These Days Grow Long
Really fun S1 AU where Daryl and Glenn were in an established relationship pre-apocalypse and got separated in the fall of Atlanta, each thinking the other died. Daryl still ends up with the quarry camp, Glenn with another group. The romance is pretty sappy, but the author does a great job of following through the ramifications of Merle's absence and changing the course of S1 events, and has a bunch of excellent and original action sequences with some high-grade Daryl feels, which is exactly my jam.

The best part is the fallout after the rescue, which digs into the complicated cracks in all three men's relationships with each other.

So she doesn't feel guilty about it, when Fusco calls and says, "Carter, sorry, know it's your day off, but I think we're going to need you down here—" but she doesn't take the spare second to find a bookmark before she drops the paperback and heads for her car.

Amazing Carter fic, where she's called in to help with a number gone sideways.

Molly feels different, afterwards. She feels like she’s lost something, some part of herself that was capable of having a crush on Sherlock that, though pathetic, was at least honest and simple.

Gorgeous post-Reichenbach character study of Molly; the bit with the paper cranes is particularly lovely.
