I killed a clown. AMA! by liesmyth
It, Eddit/Richie. "'I (39M) got stabbed twice today and now I want a divorce. Help?' Or: the one where Eddie is on Reddit." // 10K. Set up like multiple Reddit posts + comments. This must have taken hella work, but brilliant results and worth it. Still haven't seen movie but thoroughly sucked in by (bizarre yet also weirdly typical) Reddit drama version.

Anthony J. Crowley, Retired Demon and Airbnb Superhost by TheOldAquarian
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "What are you supposed to do when you've been fired from your sweet job in Hell for thwarting the schemes of Satan, you've got a swanky flat in Mayfair, and you're looking for an excuse to spend all your time in someone else's bookshop? Obviously, you turn to the dubious world of short-term vacation rentals. The resulting Airbnb property has been variously described as 'an instagram trap,' 'a vampire den but make it botanical,' and 'the weirdest bed and breakfast in the shared history of beds and breakfasting.'" // 3K. A series of appreciative, much less so, and/or bewildered online AirBNB reviews. It's good.

14th Century RPF, The Book of Margery Kempe, gen. "IF YOU ARE UNASHAMED OF BELIEVING IN THE LORD JESUS OR HIS UNWORTHY SERVANT WHO WEEPS WHENEVER SHE THINKS OF HIM THEN SHARE THIS POST." // 4.5K. OMG. Modern AU. The best. Seems like every year someone pops off with medieval lulziness, and they are always, always amazing. Tags: "Margery has Facebook." "Margery has Twitter." "Margery has concerned family members." LOLOLOL.

Lest They Be Angels in Disguise by Raven (singlecrow)
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "Buzzfeed, July 2019, 'Top Five Off-the-Wall Theories About the Scary Instagram Plant Man'." #acceptablerosesofinstagram, or Crowley's sideline as a mysterious social media influencer. // <1K. Images mainly with accompanying text -- faux IG posts and snippets of user comments on them and news commentary about them. Fun, but I found it awfully difficult to parse at first glance; some line rules visually separating the items would have helped.

Adventures in Attempting to Purchase a Book from That Weird Old Soho Bookshop, A. Z. Fell & Co. by Quandtuniverse
Good Omens, gen. "A rare book collector posting on a niche internet forum is dismayed to learn that the final missing book he needs from a series is only available at the best worst bookshop in London." // 1.3K. Fun, and not long! It's a series of posts to an Internet forum, wherein everyone shares despair and advice about the best approach to a notoriously peculiar bookshop. (And it's not clear why the mods have not banned their "DangerNoodle666" troll.) I do love stuff like this.

Love Hath Made Thee a Tame Snake by thehoyden
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "He was the bloody Serpent of Eden, and he wasn’t going to stand for this kind of flagrant trespassing." Crowley discovers the benefits of hanging about in the bookshop as a very large snake. // 3.5K. This is the one with the Yelp reviews at the bottom (including "Anthony C" approving of the comment by someone who got bit). This is also the one with Aziraphale going spring frolic + genital genderswap. It's a lot, and packed into a small space.

The Internet Was a Mistake by kageygirl
Kingsman, Eggsy/Harry, AU. Drunk!Eggsy becomes enamored of a professor featured on a BBC nature show, and his life takes a mortifying turn, courtesy Twitter. // 3K, short, gen-ish, and v.v. cute.
Unsaid, but fairly fucking obvious in hindsight, was that Harry Hart did not have a lot to do in his free time to have delved that deeply into Eggsy's timeline, and that Eggsy might have wanted to consider that a lepidoperist with 53 Twitter followers might well notice picking up a new one with whom he was not personally acquainted and thus do some digging, and also that Eggsy was an idiot and the entire internet was a mistake.

Full Metal Sasquatch by newsbypostcard
Captain America, Steve/Bucky. William (a hairy, paranoid, unemployed Brooklyn hipster) is baffled yet reluctantly impressed by the popularity of the cat memes and boring food photos his friend Karen (a natty executive assistant) keeps posting on Instagram. He starts his own account in hopes a hobby will help alleviate his aggressive pining after his long-distance boyfriend, Patrick (an American art student in Paris), whom he hasn't seen in three years. Meanwhile, ever since Captain America started to open carry a gun, he's been accused of supporting a conservative political agenda... // 20.7K: "(Bucky!Cap, doing his best.)" 100% Bucky POV. His hardcore dedication to removing Steve from the grid is sadness, and his getting swept up in spite of himself with a tiny taste of Instafame is endearing. So, so much pining here. Good times.

Spider-man/Avengers, gen. After an embarrassed Peter inadvertently reveals the existence of Steve's school PSAs to his amused coworkers. Steve pursues vengeance. Peter takes revenge for Steve's revenge, and escalation ensues, pulling in everyone else in the vicinity -- with an avid Internet audience. // 17K, series of four fics, humor.

You Know I'd Quench That Thirst by napricot
Captain America, Steve/Bucky, Steve/Peggy, Steve/Bucky/Peggy, Steve/the USO Tour. After the serum, Steve, whose sexual experience amounted to Bucky-Once-In-a-While, has a raging libido with no help but his hand until the USO comes to his rescue. Bucky and Peggy are willing to assist with his "medical condition," but after he's revived his life's filled with fail: everyone's too in awe of the icon to fuck him. So that's other reason he's desperate to find Bucky. // 38K. Goofy, fun idea, and some bits are legit hilarious with a side order of angsty woobie. Probably the best Peggy/Bucky threesome I've hit so far. But. Later it seems to wobble about in a goal-less way, aside from ticking off a checklist of fanon issues to cover. Also loaded with jarringly anachronistic phrasings / dialogue, like constantly hitting mental speed bumps for me. Ergo ambivalent: maybe reread, maybe not.

All the Dragons We Have Slain by brighter
Yuri on Ice, Victor/Yuri. Gamer AU. When Yuri and Phichit's attempts to beat a final boss in Everguard fail, they post a request for more help -- and are answered by a massively experienced (but possibly nuts) player on the Russian server and his grumpy teenage sidekick. // 10K of super-cute. Here, Yuri works at the family onsen, and Phichit is his former college roommate from Detroit, now working at his family's restaurant in Bangkok. Extreme long-distance pining and UST culminating in a covention meetup. (It's not a real game, so no knowledge of it needed.)
Victor Nikiforov is a walking conundrum. He's good, obviously, nearly too good to be playing with the likes of Yuuri and Phichit, who prefer Google to guidebooks. But Victor's also dense. Yuuri was incredulous during their first encounter.
[katsudonkatsuki]: wait
[katsudonkatsuki]: are you our tank
[v-nikiforov]: yes! i am victor! ^^ what's your name?
[katsudonkatsuki]: paladins are healers
[v-nikiforov]: not this one!!!
Victor's character moves with grace and wields a massive hammer. He's a paladin without all the honour. His murder count is *massacre.* He ends nearly all his sentences with a string of exclamation points. Yuuri finds himself fascinated. He's always had something of an affinity for contradictions.

Superhero RPF by Anonymous
Ms Marvel/Young Avengers/Agent of Asgard/Mighty Thor/etc., gen(ish). Kamala (aka PlusFiveToBling), who writes Avengers RPF epics (and Thor RPS), is a Tumblr and IRC pal of Sassgardian, who writes Game of Thrones fics and indulges in superhero cosplay Instagram sprees on the side. Meanwhile, FailFandomAnon, the CapeSwap fanfic exchange's anon bitch-board, Loki's D&D group, and his Starkphone contact list are all alternatively disgruntled and fascinated when Real Life begins to rudely intrude on everyone's fandom shenanigans. // 10K, 616 epistolary xover fic of doom, last updated in spring 2014. It's assembled as a series of Tumblr, LJ/DW, and texting conversations, with most of the characters IDed by usernames. (I figured out everyone except Fishbreath, but there's no character key, alas.) I'd somehow managed to forget Loki's love of the Internet in JiM (and his Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram presence in YA) -- it makes perfect sense that he'd take on fandom as well and troll it like a pro.

Kris has been striking out at finding a boyfriend when he puts his own profile on the same dating site. Internet anon chat ensues, then phone calls. How long will all this anonning hold out? // Canon(ish).

She orders Derek to respond to it as part of his therapy. // 17+K Random punctuation and typos aside, this is a pretty inventive AU take on the canon. (Is this a new thing?
