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.

Academy fic. Dr. Leonard McCoy thinks he has nothing in common with command-track cadet Jim Kirk, until a series of events forces them together. When a simple training mission is derailed into a seemingly hopeless situation, both have to learn to trust one another, and they’ll need all their wits and survival skills to stay alive.

hoosierbitch: problem child
The teenager that they lead into the holding room is grinning at him. It would be less discouraging if his teeth weren’t covered in blood. The guards cuff the kid’s hands to the table and his ankles to the chair. They don’t undo the chain around his waist that ties the whole mess together, so he’s hunched over and jangles every time he moves.

The way Phil takes care of Clint until Clint turns around and takes care of him right back -- to great, beautiful annoyance on both sides -- makes my heart hurt in the best way.

"I do believe the two of you were in the same year as boys, were you not?" Headmaster Shaw said. "Charles is the most competent deputy any headmaster could ask for, Erik, and he's been doing this for years…" He trailed off, as if finally noticing something odd in the way his Potions and Divination masters were staring at each other.

"Of course," Charles said quickly, his voice only a little hoarse, and stuck out his hand. "Welcome back to Hogwarts, Erik."

yahtzee: Break
During their final semester at Starfleet Academy, two people who have no intention of ever changing transform each other.

Insightful, patient look at Spock and Uhura's friendship turning into romance while he helps her with her thesis. Slow build in the best way, and I adore the linguistics discussion and the sequence on Vulcan with Amanda.

Sprawling, wonderful Kirk/McCoy series starting at the Academy and continuing on the Enterprise. Seriously, set aside a day to read this, because once you get caught up in the author's amazing characterization and the slow build relationship and all the awesome OCs, you're not gonna want to stop.

mijan: Convergence
Awesome explanation for why Pike was at Riverside, how Bones got recruited, and the beginning of Kirk and McCoy's friendship. Continued in a series set at the academy, but this one's my favorite. Later parts are a hell of a lot of smart plotty fun, albeit a tad overwrought.

Jim knows that the best way to cure disappointment and despair and abject self-loathing is alcohol, that loneliness is cured by a warm and willing female, and that a long, fast drive will fix any sense of being trapped. But he's not sure what the hell to do with contentment.

Excellent character study of Kirk at the Academy, with the realistic worldbuilding MP brings to all of her military-related fic.

lazulisong: Graduate Vulcan for Fun and Profit
In which Jim Kirk becomes the protege of a Vulcan linguist who took temporary custody of him after Tarsus IV, and who later blackmails him in writing a graduate thesis at the Academy. The funeral scene is way too motts-y for my taste but the rest is a very sweet and entertaining execution of the far-fetched premise, which I largely credit to the humor and Sakel being a fantastic OC.

dolorous-ett: Cadet Kirk's Starfleet End-of-Year Report
Although Jim’s attendance and exam performance were of an acceptable standard, he does not seem to understand that safety rules are there for a reason, and that it is not possible to cause a ship to exceed its manufacturer’s specifications by personal charm alone. He is a nice young man, and I am sure will do well in future, but he has to learn that the laws of the physical universe cannot be bent to his whims.

It surprises McCoy to find Jim in the astrometrics lab, but not nearly as much as it does that Jim appears to be completely, one-hundred-percent sober, even though it's legitimately after five o'clock and usually when Jim disappears for more than twelve hours it's because he's been in a fight or drinking or both.
