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.

Sometimes Eames tells himself lies like he’s setting himself a dare, like how he tells himself he’s in love with Arthur, how he’s desperate to have Arthur love him back. That’s a good one.

“The theory,” Eames says, “is that you can use the PASIV to get into a man’s mind, just like in a dream. But a regular kick doesn’t work, because a coma’s so much deeper than ordinary sleep. You need a bigger kick. A bigger shock to the system.”

“Yeah,” Arthur says. “You let me know when you figure out what’s a bigger shock than getting shot in the head.”

“Believe me,” says Eames. “You’ll be the first to know.”

"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.

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.

Max thought he’d never want to see the Citadel again. He doesn’t exactly have a habit of returning to places where he was held captive and tortured. He doesn’t have a habit of returning anywhere at all.

In which Max keeps returning to the Citadel and Furiosa, and slowly heals. Surely everyone in Mad Max fandom has already read this, but it’s SO GOOD. Long, patiently-drawn slow-build romances are my favorite, and when you pile amazeballs worldbuilding and emotional h/c on top of that, you have my sword.

anonymous: Angry!Girl Esca
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.

She doesn’t even have her stick up; she’s strolling around the mat like it’s a cocktail party.

fayjay: Batter My Heart
It's Heaven, so you couldn't call this torture. It's for his own good, they're very clear on that. It's because God loves him, and because God needs his obedience. They're saving him. || Lyrical and heartbreaking Castiel character study spanning the end of S4.

aesc: A geometry for spirits
"I invented them," Castiel says. His borrowed body pushes at him, aware suddenly of Dean's human solidness, flesh and bone, the sturdy length of him. "The devil's traps and symbols you use… They're a lot different now, of course, but they still do what they need to."

hackthis: Son is on a Midnight Run Like DeNiro (1/4)
In which Cooper and Sherman have enough trouble just getting together, but staying together is a whole other ball game. Long, intricate, and AU from the end of S1, with a Cooper POV so true that it practically leaps off the page to start giving you shit of its own volition.

destina: Finding Home
Nixon goes back to New Jersey, and has trouble adjusting. Beautiful story, not just the relationship between the guys, which is my gold standard for this fandom, but the experience of coming home from combat.

funkyinfishnet: The Grit and the Pearl
"Your Highness," Duchess faltered. Her practised steps, her smiling expressions and poses for every occasion and person to curry favour with were all useless. The Queen's rules didn't fit here anymore. || Duchess' struggle in this story to balance her feelings for Jack with a lifetime of deceit is fantastic. Both of them are wonderfully nuanced and manipulative and politically savvy - I just wish it were longer!

ghostlingering: Singing With The Sound Off
It wasn't as if he was in love with someone who off and left him for the perfect girl, because Don didn't leave and that girl meant that he had two best friends now. | Sweet post-movie character study of Cosmo, that balances his unrequited feelings against their friendship and an undercurrent of potential.
