When Your Heart Beats Next to Mine by beethechange
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane, Ryan/Shane/Curly. Shane's joke on camera about Ryan's "virginity" leads to Curly offering up a suggested fun activity for the rest of the evening. Ryan, surprisingly, is down. // 10.7K, rotating POV, threesome roleplay with accompanying awkwardness and earnestness and a good time had by all. Wasn't certain how Curly OTT would work out in a sex scene, but it turned out fine.
Ryan perches there, sipping his mini-bar concoction. Somewhere along the way he toed out of his ghoul-hunting boots. His socked feet, crossed at the ankles in an attempt at casual, strike Shane as an effective touch, beautifully art-directed for vulnerability.
There might be too many producers in this hotel room.

Russian Roulette Croquembouche by misantlery
Buzzfeed Worth It, Andrew/Steven. During the planning and filming of the holiday videos, Andrew wrestles with his attraction to Steven, who's back in town after having relocated to NYC. // 9.5K. Andrew POV. Pining, aaaangsting, food, more pining, more food, interspersed with mildly judgey coworkers. It's pretty readable, tho I'm not certain it makes sense without watching the set of videos first:

How Much of the Map (those undiscovered places) by susiecarter
Deep Space Nine, Bashir/Garak. Julian wakes up married, in someone else's bed. He isn't sure how that happened, but his headache says far too much kanar was likely involved. // ~7K. New DS9 fic omg. Set post-Zimmerman reveal, mostly a fic about Julian freaking out about his bad life choices. I did wonder who'd officiate a marriage with that much booze involved, but once the fic got there -- oh. Yeah, of course. No smut.

Indiana Bergara and the Treasure of Shane Madej by hapakitsune
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane. "Two men walk into a forest. 'We're looking for buried treasure,' they say. There's no answer, so they go back to their rooms and have sex about it." // 3K, PWP with incidental cosplay. Of the various fics that derived from that episode, I'd pick this one. Fun, funny, and I deeply admire this tag: "maybe the real treasure was the porn we wrote along the way." (Locked fic, login to read)

Skirting the Issue by santamonicayachtclub
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane. "Lizzie Borden took a dress and landed Shane in quite a mess." // 8.8K, PWP. Lizzie Borden House ep-tag. Two parts: clever setup for fun kink, but abruptly backs off kink, dismisses it as irrelevant. (Uh. Wha?) Last half of fic is protracted sex scene. First part okay, last part bit boring tbh. (Also left me wondering about the timeline on the never-mentioned cheerleader outfit.)

The Denial Twist by beethechange
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane. After their Mothman taunting in WV, both start to show up in each other's surreal, vaguely historical dreams. But when a Knott's Berry Farm dream turns homicidal, they admit their situation's completely out of control. // 35K. So dream sharing, USTing, potentially a supernatural yenta. Fun stuff. Obviously a fantasy because no one's bare ass gets chomped by mosquitoes.

Deep Space Nine, Bashir/Garak. "'You want me to read to you?' Julian repeated, somewhat taken aback." Julian's offer to entertain Garak while he's recovering from the surgery turns into Julian's learning Cardassian while reading it aloud. // 5.6K. Very fun. The best kind of sneaky vs. naive fic.

Meditations on Two Bastards in a Corridor by bmouse
Deep Space Nine, gen. "A little riff of that one scene in 'Way of the Warrior' where Garak and Dukat are stuck together fighting off Klingons in a hallway." // 2.7K, Garak's thoughts on fashion, laundry, the insufferable Gul Dukat, and society in general. Also dead Klingons and minor gore.

A Secret Between Friends by bmouse
Deep Space Nine, Garak/Bashir. Post S05E6. "He wanted to tell him, but didn't."
Was there really something to be forgiven for? His personality, with all attendant deficiencies, was unaltered. It was just that he had deleted a long-running subroutine called 'Hide the Secret' and now felt like a burn victim: over-sensitive, missing several protective layers of skin, and repulsed by mirrors.
//3K. Julian, after everyone's returned from the Jem'Haddar captivity, resumes his angst fest. (A sign of overdosing on the bmouse brand of Cardassian cultural delicacy: you think, Wow, a hand squeeze seems far too forward; but then they've been though a lot and no one could see it, so perhaps that ameliorates the audacity somewhat...) This could be a nice prequel to her post-canon fics, actually.

Sanctuary by greenkangaroo
Naruto, Sand Siblings, gen. "Temari would not have chosen the Red Sands Playhouse to make their stand. Or, the inevitable aftermath of a parent's death, a failed mission, and an uncertain future." // 5K. Temari POV. Starts directly after the failed chuuin exam invasion where most of Suna regards Gaara's state as a prime opportunity to dispose of him, and proceeds through ensuing events. It's a world-expansion type fic that focuses on the puppeteer faction, and on the siblings realigning their relationships to encompass Gaara and his tentative attempts to be human. It's pretty amazing and touching.

Zelinski by Jackie Thomas (Jackie_Thomas)
Lewis, gen. "'The attic was dark, dusty, confined. I lifted the lid from the water cistern...' What happens between Lewis and Hathaway during the Dead of Winter has its roots in the Zelinski case. This is the story of the Zelinski case." // Lewis POV, in-progress case, the one for which Hathaway was testifing during the episode. I'd not really considered the implications of one for the other, but laid out here.
* Winter's Breath, http://archiveofourown.org/works/1691843. "He had hoped he might get through the Crevecoeur case with his dignity intact. Post-episode for Dead of Winter." // Hathaway POV. No plot per se, entirely H/C.
Episode bookends, alternate POVs. Labeled as pre-slash but more easily gen. I like that her fics are peppered with tiny exchanges like this one, after Hathaway falls asleep halfway through a cig:
I know there is no point trying to persuade him to catch a couple of hours sleep on the couch so I give him his smoke back and bring the teas outside. He peers into his cup, "The colour of mahogany, sir," he observes.
"A decent cup or what's the point?"
"Yes, sir."
"I'll leave you with your quiff in flames next time."
"My hair was completely flat before I started drinking your tea."
"That's all right, you could do with extra height."

1000 Ways to Kill a Cat by kvikindi
Lewis, gen. "In the aftermath of the Crevecoeur murders, Hathaway struggles to find his footing. And babysits a cat." // 7K. "Dead of Winter," once again. In the runup to the trial, Hawathay (POV) is introspective and nervy and literary comme d'habitude, and Lewis persists in plying him with dull TV and loaning him his hostile cat, against James's express wishes. Alas, slash free (but could be read as pre, with goggles on). In general, a lovely fic. No cats are harmed, despite title -- tho one cat does wreak some havoc about the place.

Lewis/DWJ, gen. "The envelope arrives by courier the next day. James has to sign to receive it, so he can’t just pretend that it doesn’t exist. He finds himself unable, then, to set it on the table unopened. As if it’s an armed explosive or an animal in a cage. He breaks the wax seal, with its Mortmaigne crest, and unfolds a single sheet of paper." // 20K of utter awesomeness. Hathaway POV, fusionfic of the DWJ novel "Fire & Hemlock" with the Lewis episode "Dead of Winter," and she's fit them together perfectly. Other characters appearing include Briony and Zoe!

On Demand by isagel
Lewis, Lewis/Hathaway. "'Can you pee on demand, Sergeant?' Lewis asks." Indeed Hathaway can.
At six minutes, he’s simply waiting, eyes forward on the crack in the white tile that has been there unmended since January, arms at his side, fingers loosely curled. Apart from the way he’s conscious of his bladder, the pressure in it, it’s not that different from the stillness of kneeling on a church floor. He has experience with being still.
// O_o; Taking off from that episode where he gets poisoned in passing. I'd not have thought a mildly porny D/s-flavoured pee-fic could describe the relationship here so well, but there it is.

Tamika Flynn: Librarian Hunter by Measured_Words
Welcome to Night Vale, gen. "Marcus Vansten has an unexpected problem at the Night Vale Private Library, but he knows just who to call." // A sequel to ThingsWithWing's Summer Reading Program fic. Marcus Vansten, the filthy rich exhibitionist/nudist who built the Private Library right next to the Public Library (ep. 27), has called in a contractor to deal with a librarian infestation -- namely, Tamika Flynn (POV), survivor. v.v. good. :)

"How I Survived My Summer Vacation, by Tamika Flynn, Age 12 3/4" by thingswithwings
Welcome to Night Vale, Tamika/OFC, gen. "The first book on Tamika Flynn's Summer Reading Program Sticker Chart is Lord of the Flies. She doesn't really like it." Ep. 28, the tale of Tamika, the first to be dragged into the summer reading program.
But Tamika's mom teaches Language and Literature at NVCC, so Tamika has been raised with the knowledge of how to defend herself against librarians, and knows that the Great Western Canon is her best bet in surviving the initial onslaught. She's one of the first kids pulled into the library when the Summer Reading Program begins, but she makes her way to the YA section – calmly and quietly, no running, no shouting, no making a scene – and looks for the first book with the telltale thirty dog-eared copies that indicate the book's been assigned to some junior high class in the past. The copy she grabs has a shell on the front cover, which is pretty boring, and then the book is pretty boring too, but at least she reads it fast, before any librarians spot her.

"A timeless classic about the struggle between good and evil in our natures! I liked the parts where the boys were cruel to each other because it showed how kids are cruel, like in real life, because it's just the way humans are!" she cries, holding the book in front of her like a warding-off talisman when the first librarian comes howling for her blood.

The librarian pauses, considering. Then it opens its sharp-toothed maw and a sound issues forth, a terrible sound that makes Tamika want to fall sobbing to the floor, or run away, or scream.

They get you if you scream.
A++ will read again. Weirdly funny, creative take on the Night Vale Library Summer Reading Program.
