The Stars They Sewed on Us by Speranza
Captain America, Steve/Bucky, gen-ish. "Do you remember the time I was only Steve and you were only Bucky? Do you remember when we were only two boys from Brooklyn?" // 9.5K. Bucky (POV) gets deprogrammed in Wakanda, which manifests as a series of increasingly elaborate mental AUs. Interesting read. Tags later.

4 Minute Window by Speranza
Captain America, Steve/Bucky. Bucky decides to recruit Steve (POV) in order to save Steve from the Surveillance State and his own celebrity; everyone else (Natasha [POV2], the CIA, the FBI...) is trying to save Steve from being killed by the Winter Soldier. // Another amnesia-free fic; s'an okay read, extrapolation on unusual idea. But. Cesp. charas (mid-dS onward) often have a Randian bent: self-involved to the point of callous, no one outside their useful/useless-to-me exclusion zone merits consideration. E.g., Sam is an afterthought, and that thought wasn't Steve's; Peggy was the potential purveyor of babies; and Steve has zero trust/affection for Natasha here, which makes her narrow focus on his welfare come off as obsessed and stalkerish. I liked the curtain-ficcy epilogue mostly--tho, as usual, it's arranged so that they can ignore everyone but themselves.

* "Second Time as Farce," http://archiveofourown.org/works/2685881
Natasha (POV) shows up for the debut of the Captain America balloon in the Macy's parade. Gen(ish) vignette.

* "Yelp page for Coney Island Design & Construction," http://archiveofourown.org/works/3177935 A triple-author multimedia thing, humor.

* "Scenes from a Marriage: The Kadinsky," http://archiveofourown.org/works/3788446 Natasha (POV) shows up hurt, an investigation gone wrong. Bucky acquires a painting for Steve. (I looked up the artist. I don't get the excesses of rapture that Steve goes into over it in this fic. But the painting is intended to be a metaphor via Bucky POV anyway.)

* "Scenes from a Marriage: The Studebaker," http://archiveofourown.org/works/4061911 Peggy dies, Steve loses it, Bucky (POV) makes elaborate plans for surviving the funeral.

All the Angels and the Saints by Speranza
Captain America, Steve/Bucky. Steve loses his religion, finds it again, fucks around with Bucky, etc. // Finally got around to finishing it. Mediocre fic, v.v. slow mover, fairly dull in places. Differs from others in handwaving any amnesia or PTSD entirely; in fact, second part of fic is a rather perfunctory forced march to a conclusion. Baffled by all the enthusiasm for this one; most likely won't read again. No biggie. :P (Neither here nor there, but why was Steve's confirmation before his first communion in this fic? Weird.)

Area 51 by Speranza
Queer as Folk UK, Stuart/Vince. "Let's cruise the Extraterrestrial Highway!" An international sightseeing tour ends in Nevada with an unexpected fangasm. // LOLOL. I have never read this fanfic! I've not seen any of QaF-UK, but it wasn't necessary. This was so funny and charming, and the crossover fit perfectly.

Locked Room Puzzle by Speranza
Due South, RayK/Fraser. The head of the local detachment calls in a couple of retired policemen who live in the area to take a look at a dubious suicide. (And Ray demonstrates how Fraser is wrong, so wrong, the wrongest about his grasp of rural policing.) // A new Due South fic omg (!!!). Outsider POV <3. <3 <3 It's actually pretty gen in terms of storyline, but they were most def in the midst of a relationship here.

Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead by speranza
SGA, John/Rodney. During the period when they're all kicked back to Earth to report, SGC shunts them all to the same hotel. Everyone flees for the hills except for the two with nowhere else to go, who bond over that, more or less. // Symphonies and football. The only SGA fic of hers that I really like. Must have last read it before I got a Delicious account. :P

Detritus by Speranza
Person of Interest, Reese/Finch. As John finds tiny items out of place in the library, he leaves behind a few of his own. // Sloooow motion, understated puzzle courtship with a restrained, lowkey resolution. (Smut free tho.)

The Silenus Club by Speranza
Person of Interest, Finch/Reese. So this time, the 'gay bar' is an exceedingly exclusive club, and the case comes by way of Finch, who isn't the one undercover. // :)

Self Defense by Speranza
Person of Interest, Finch/Reese. "There were heavy velvet curtains over the windows." In medias res murder, then Reese hauls them into a gay bar to avoid the cops. // The opening part is clever. Then pining, angst galore, HEA. Yeah, OK. I give up. I will find the show and watch it...sigh.

Up Or Artistic Lush by Speranza
Sherlock, John/Sherlock. Another hookup story, basically, with some reasonably clever stuff sprinkled around in it, a side trip to a grotty sex club, and a lot of random wordplay.

One-Way Ticket by speranza
SGA, McKay/Sheppard. John suspects that the expedition is "a one-way ticket for inconvenient gay people." Rodney shrugs that off as population statistics vis-a-vis single, unattached adults; after all, *he* isn't gay. // Heh. :D

Bohemian Rhapsody by cesperanza
Sherlock, Sherlock/John. Sherlock takes the case of guarding Lady Dada's master recordings from thieves. This is rather entertaining -- it's an actual casefic rather than the usual sketchy excuse for to porn.

Chicago's Most Wanted by Speranza
Due South, F/RK. Fraser gets amnesia and his own gang. Ray gets the thankless job of tracking him down and arresting him. // Oooh, so funny, so good, so long. First dS fic I read; instantaneous conversion into a hardcore fan ensued. Thing is, after watching the show myself I don't necessarily fall in with her characterizations, yet I still like these fics enormously.
