Memory Lane by Selden
Harry Potter, Harry/Draco. Someone has been stealing memories of war incidents from former Death Eaters then implanting them in random victims. Auror Harry works against the clock to figure out who's doing it and how to stop the distorted memories from killing both the recipients and donors -- which now include himself and Malfoy. // 31K. Plotty, twisty case fic with built-in countdown that elaborates on a canon element (pensieves) in a rather cool and interesting way. Smut free. Same au as last year's awesome Death Eaters in Disguise fic.

Beneath The Coming Frost by astolat
Witcher, Geralt/Avallac'h. Geralt and Avallac'h roadtrip the portals, peer at the White Frost, then hang chez Ge’els -- and resolve an argument about bloodlines. // 4K. Complexicated little fic filled with worldbuilding backstory. Then sudden sex pollen! Evidently elf logic = fanfic logic: all dilemmas solved with a sex scene. ^___^

Warp of Water, Weft of Stone by jediseagull
Rivers of London, Peter/Thomas. "The demi-monde is at peace. Thomas Nightingale, however, is not." // 11K, Nightingale POV, gen(ish), casefic. Peter's reached the end of his apprenticeship, and something in a Yorkshire cave is somehow glamouring Londoners north to doom. When they investigate, Nightingale promptly gets whammied as well, but Peter to the rescue. Minor tour of side-characters (mentions if not appearances), zero smuttiness.

Fourth Floor by dirtybinary
Captain America, Steve/Bucky, AU. After Sam persuades Steve, a failed wizarding student, to rent rooms in his dilapitated (and occasionally disappearing) Brooklyn hostel, Steve's caught up in their neighbors' dramas, many of which seem to revolve around the cook/cyborg in the apartment next to Steve's. Then the evil real estate developers step in. // 42K. Fun, plotty magical/modern AU in which pretty much everyone shows up at some point or other. Skinny!Steve for this one. I was legit suprised by the major plot reveal, which always makes me happy.

Misethere by astolat
Witcher, Geralt/Emhyr. After a plot to dose Emhyr with a misethere potion succeeds -- but with the wrong object -- Geralt unfortunately finds himself the sole focus of the emperor's amorous attentions. But neither Emhyr nor Yenniferr is willing to compromise, and Geralt has his ward Cillia's future as the heir to Emhyr's empire to consider as well. // 46K! The longest sex pollen fic I've ever seen. A complicated, interesting plot with political shenanigans and a surprise twist toward the end. Also noticed a lot of comparisons with the Dresden Files in the comments, and I'd agree: it does read like an extended Marcone/Harry fantasy AU. Huh.

Witcher, Geralt/Emhyr, Geralt/Lambert. Geralt is cursed to lose the use of his sword arm until he's fucked by the emperor himself. Who, surprisingly, obliges. This, in turn, triggers an inrequited crush the size of the empire. // 8.7K. LOL. Entertaining, industrial strength piiiining, and no canon knowledge required, tho the video link to drunken shennigans is useful.

Harry Potter, Harry/Draco. While they're back at Hogwarts to finish out their eighth year, one of the trio is re-sorted into a different house, and all three of them -- and, unfortunately, Draco Malfoy -- get cursed with a tattoo that reveals the name of their soulmate. Awkward, and even more so when Harry's tattoo never appears. // 114K. Long, funny, fairly gentle fic with Harry fumbling about trying on Slytherin-ness and sorting out his feelings about the most pricky dormmate ever.

Slithering by astolat
Harry Potter, Harry/Draco. Draco, at loose ends after the war, adopts a snake, deals with a booby trap, and begins formal courting in search of a partner. Harry ruins everything. // 27K. V.v. long and plotty, in two parts -- mansion and after-mansion -- the latter focusing on intricate social rituals being worked out. The former is mostly a trapped-in-the-mansion, pretend prisoner business (with, oddly, repetitive vomiting). Fic doesn't waste a great deal of time on all things Death Eater. Borrows Saras_girl's favorite magical-creature sidekick trope. Also a great deal more Hermione in this fic than her usual, and all Hermione's parts are rather nifty.
[She] turned back and pointed at Draco—-he started back involuntarily, but she just shot off a Healing Charm at him that rammed itself down his throat, ran into his lungs, inflated him like a bellows, and shot back out, leaving him with not even a twinge and a horrible sensation through his whole body like he’d spent the last ten years eating leafy vegetables and doing moderate amounts of healthy exercise.
She dropped her arm and stared at him and then grimaced and said, "Are you all right," in an unenthusiastic way.
"No, and never do that to me again," Draco said. "I’d rather speak in a croak for a month."
She rolled her eyes. "Boys are such babies. Stop complaining."
Then she just stood there in the middle of the floor staring at him. Coil had settled back down at his side, although she was still making faint angry hisses to herself, and Draco felt healthier than he wanted to, so he couldn't make sense of why Granger was still staring at him, until he suddenly realized—- "Wait a minute, are you making it up with me?"
Her eyes narrowed. "We are not friends. We are never going to be friends."
"Good Lord, no," he said in horror.
"But I'm prepared to consider the possibility that you aren't a complete waste of air," she said. "But that's it." She folded her arms over her chest and glared at him challengingly.
He stared at her. That was-—rather more than he’d expected. "All right."

Haven, Nathan/Duke. Nathan's a lot kinkier than Duke, but even he has his limits. When Duke and assorted bystanders get troubled into an actual pirate crew, complete with tall-ship, swords, and rum, and Nate gets dragged along as their pissed-off plunder. // 23K.

Nathanbunny by roseveare
Haven, gen. Nathan gets turned into a rabbit. Two parts, with the second one a casefic. This turned out to be more readable than the one-note-joke idea promised.
* "Rage Bunny," http://archiveofourown.org/works/5561494 7K, Nathan gets turned into an angry yet cute rabbit, it overrides his own trouble, and Duke wins the competition to take the bunny home.
* "The Bunny Returns," http://archiveofourown.org/works/5561494 9K, casefic. Nathan's still waiting out the countdown on de-bunnying when a kid is found abandoned at the Gull.
A few women were already parked up outside the Gull, with a car full of surfing gear, and they exclaimed about the hare moving around Duke's feet as he tried to pass. That was the kind of thing that had become his worst nightmare of the last few days.
"Don't," he warned the one kneeling to offer a hand out to Nathan. "He really doesn't like that." Fortunately, they weren't assholes about it like some people were, and didn't try to corner Nathan and force their petting on him, sticking their fingers in his face. There'd been blood before.
"What kind is he?" asked the one on her haunches. "I didn't know you could train them like this."
"Uh," Duke said. "He's a Blue Maine Attitude Problem. Lepus Obstreperous Nathanicus. Excuse us." He injected a little more force into the last words and rounded the women to continue into the Gull, Nathan butting at his ankles hard to make clear that he'd heard that.

"Professor Malfoy's world is contained, controlled, and as solitary as he can make it, but when an act of petty revenge goes horribly awry, he and his trusty six-legged friend are thrown into Hogwarts life at the deep end and must learn to live, love and let go." // (115K) I'd been putting off this fic because the summary didn't inspire much confidence, esp. that beetle thing. However, not a cockroach. The beetle is a leftover from a student's transfiguration accident, the size and personality of a large puppy. Here, Draco is the reclusive transfiguration prof at Hogwarts, estranged from his parents and everyone else, who'd been recruited then groomed by McD to take over her classes. He gets embroiled in a minor-hex feud over house points with Harry, who's now the school's flying instructor. The tit-for-tat goes badly as it is wont to do, landing Harry in the hospital wing and forcing Draco assume all his classes and extracurriculars while he's recovering. This, in turn, forces Draco out of his rooms and into a better acquaintance with the students and other teachers, Potter included. The beetle thing still seems rather random, but I guess it works as an OC. Overall the fic is such a charmer, and it's very readable. (The two followup fics are bad. Avoid.)

Sea Change (series) by roseveare
Haven. "Duke/Nathan as they save each other, sleep with each other, step into each others shoes and generally argue a lot while doing it."
* "Sea Change," http://archiveofourown.org/works/970605 "Duke saves Nathan's life in an overly intimate way, leading to further propositions and battling sea monsters together whilst examining the hypothesis that Nathan Wuornos should rightly=Gillian Anderson." Preslash-ish, X-Files-ish (13K).
* Sea Change II, http://archiveofourown.org/works/1084125 "In which Nathan Wuornos agrees to spend the night with Duke Crocker, obviously heralding the End Times, or at least guaranteeing that crooks take over the Cape Rouge in the morning." Sexyteims here. Also a gory but sort of funny death scene.
* "Twisted," http://archiveofourown.org/works/1259617 "A Haven fairy tale, with a damsel in a tower, dark enchanted forests, star-crossed romance, and a warning -- to love your neighbour, whatever they may be." Gen mainly.
// Plot, plot, plotty, and really well written. Only noticed one or two Brit slips in passing. I read these in reverse order; they were still good. I've never watched this show, have only a vague idea of the goings on, and it was fine. Fic author notes it as attempt at the "Battle Couple" genre, which I'd not even realized was a thing but is evidently something I've always liked. Character Nathan lives with a curse that mimics the loss-of-sensation symptom of Hansen/leprosy, so sex scene deals with that aspect, plus he gets fucked up A LOT (occ. grossly) in these fics.

When Dean and John show up to get him, one witch is killed, and Dean gets a love curse that he keeps secret. As teenagers, Sam and Dean are living in a dying industrial town in Pennsylvania, where they come across a crooked old creature that takes an unusual interest in Dean. As adults, Sam and Dean return to Montana for a hunt and run into the two surviving witches who have been unsuccessfully trying to grow their monster. Dean, still carrying the love spell from the dead witch, is looking like perfect plant feed." // Accurate summary is accurate.

(Have always liked this writer's fics but didn't get to read any BBs at all this year...) Two short additional fics go with as well. AO3:
* The Witch Is Dead, http://archiveofourown.org/works/838031
* To Run into the Middle of the Room, http://archiveofourown.org/works/896928 S/Dish. In San Juan, Sam finds Dean a hooker, and Dean wrestles some more with the curse.
* Dinner beneath a Hurricane, http://archiveofourown.org/works/979612 S/D. They dispose of a monster, drink a lot of tequila, and start to act on a few urges.

Dandy in the Underworld by dear_tiger
Supernatural, Sam/Dean. "They say there is a secret game in Las Vegas, the greatest one of all, in which the hero plays against the dragon for three nights, and the prize is a wish granted, and the penalty is death. A new player arrives to try his luck, only to discover that the game is held in a dump of a house in the desert and that the dragon is a dude named Dean, chained to the house by the ankle. The hero soon realizes that he cannot leave unless he wins. The dragon is growing blood-thirsty, the game makes no sense, and the hero's only hope are the clues dropped by the dragon's brother who's just along for the ride." // Outsider POV, twisty plot, not too long. Fairly gripping, and the end was a complete surprise to me.

Salt on the Western Wind by saras_girl
Harry Potter, Harry/Draco. "When the war isn’t quite as over as it first appears, a guilt-ridden Harry is sent to a mysterious safe-house. Among sandwiches, insomnia, and Mills & Boon, he discovers something quite unexpected." That is, Harry, Ron, Hermione, and, oddly enough, Draco Malfoy are shipped off to hide in a closed seaside B&B while the remainder of the Death Eaters are being ferreted out. Their already strained relations become worse when an argument and a spell-gone-wrong handcuffs Harry and Draco together. // "Magically handcuffed together" is a really popular trope in HP, seems to me (I think it's related to soulbonding); this is a lengthy, leisurely, readable variation. I mean, when it's obvious how the fic is going to end, more effort needs to be invested in creating an interesting workup before that point; this one worked well for me.

Something You Give Away by herlovewasajoke
Teen Wolf, Derek/Stiles. Stiles accidentally makes a deal with a creature that restores Derek's family, but Stiles has to pay a price for it that he's not certain he can bear. // Humm. I don't know. It's readable, has a sturdy plot and everything (though it could use a typo check). I'm just not sure about the parts the writer chose to focus on--e.g., ten people of whom we only meet three in passing.

The Speculum Curse Chapter by hyphen
Harry Potter, Marauders, gen. The evil Slytherins curse James just before the match for the house cup. The temporary solution, unfortunately, involves passing the curse around until a cure can be found. // Plotty, funny, interesting curse, and good times are had by all. I'd forgotten just how many typos are in here, but they're worth ignoring.

A Kiss from a Handsome… Mafia Boss by Jade_Dragoness
Dresden Files, Harry/Marcone. Lea visits a traditional curse on Harry such that he has to be kissed by a prince to break it. But the closest modern analogue to royalty that Bob can come up with for Harry has his own agenda. // Short and plotty, hitting the usual pairing bases plus touching lightly on Accord politics in a way that seems rather WIP-ish. Post Small Favor(?).
"The Problems with Having a Wicked Fairy Godmother," http://archiveofourown.org/works/195733
Harry/Marcone. Short sequel, established.

Involuntary Conversion by Celli
Supernatural, gen. Dean Winchester is an ordinary CPA in an ordinary accounting firm, but the new temp seems to believe he's something else entirely. // Not an AU. Cute. Also weirdly reminiscent of the much, much later Smith/Wesson ep.
