Through Every Door by darlingred1
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "After thwarting the end of the world, Aziraphale begins to avoid Crowley, and Crowley accidentally awakens his own repressed lust." // 15K, Crowley POV. Mainly solo fantasy wanking porn, but eventually they sort themselves out. PWP with a vengeance.

Want You in My Room by beethechange
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Shane/Ryan, college AU. During his frat's first kegger of the quarter, Ryan spots some rando bro holding up a wall across the room and boom, plans to "climb that dude like a tree." Unfortunately his flirting game ("This house is super haunted!") is wasted on That Dude, who seems the opposite of interested. Fate intervenes: they're signed up for the same history course. // 13K, Ryan POV. Fun, fun jock/nerd AU, with various Buzzfeeders as college peeps, and Ryan being Ryan in any setting.
"So I was thinking, what about a short-form video that was sort of, like, poking fun of some crazy history story? I was thinking a panel of a few people to talk through the story, and maybe some cool graphics or animations.”
“How short form?”
“Fifteen, maybe twenty minutes? Something we can stick on YouTube so we won’t have to pay for a platform or distribution, and that we can make by December without driving ourselves crazy. History’s basically just storytelling, so the trick is to choose a story that’s inherently sort of bugfuck insane.”
“Like President Ben Franklin’s weird sex cult thing.”
“You know about—-oh, hang on,” Shane leans forward in his chair, tenting his fingers together like he’s about to interrogate Ryan. His eyes are beseeching. “Ryan. Ryan, please tell me you know Ben Franklin wasn’t a president.”
“Then why’s he on the hundred dollar bill? Why’s it all about the Benjamins, huh, Shane? See, I know things.”

Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane. "In 2026, seven years after the end of Buzzfeed Unsolved, a guy walks into a bar." // 10K. Shane POV. Both have long since moved on to other jobs when they accidentally meet again in a bar and neither is in a relationship right now, so ... drunk and horny in New Orleans.

Begin the Begin, Over and Over by beethechange
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane. "Shane only agrees to be handcuffed to Ryan for a video because he can put up with anything for twenty-four hours. That’s the funny thing about time loops, though—they don’t always adhere to the parameters set by clickbait videos." // 33K. In this one, Shane's puddling along in the office while Ryan's off independent contracting until he's hauled in to participate in one of those "handcuffed together" videos. At which point, for Shane, time begins looping a la Groundhog's Day. Fic skips past the utter tedium of most fics with this trope (it doesn't get bogged down in repetitive details) and manages to stay an interesting pine-a-thon.

It's Not The End Of The World, Dear by jessthereckless
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "After averting the apocalypse, Crowley and Aziraphale re-examine their relationship and reach the obvious conclusion: they're retired, they're in love and they're damn well going to enjoy it. Providing, of course, that they can stay out of trouble." // 20.7K total.

* "Lie Back and Think of Dinner," https://archiveofourown.org/works/19136509 Even though Crowley has been pining away industriously for thousands of years, he doesn't immediately twig onto Oxfordshire's sudden spurt of Foretean mysteries and fracking side effects as attempts to lure him into a picnic. // 11K. Fun, bantery, and ultimately a bit porny.

* "Still My Heart Has Wings," https://archiveofourown.org/works/19280641 "The story of how an angel and demon somehow set up home together." // 10K, sequel to previous. Aziraphale gets to try Many Naughty Things, Crowley gets to sort out his own role in the relationship -- and confront the whole idea of retirement.
Aziraphale looked like he very much wanted to swear. “This was you, wasn’t it?” he said. “IKEA instructions?”
Crowley grinned. He always liked to take credit for bad work.
“I knew it,” said Aziraphale. “Driving people slowly insane with affordable Swedish furniture. Of course it had to be you.”
“Look, you were the one who said I should get a hobby.”

Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. Aziraphale goes missing, and after a lot of trouble (and a short prophecy), Crowley finds him human and married to an investment banker. After inveigling himself into Aziraphale's new life as a small, chatty pet snake, Crowley first has to solve the puzzle of Aziraphale's amnesia. // 30.4K, Crowley POV, WIP.

Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "Aziraphale actually does have quite an extensive collection of pornography in the bookshop. Like most of the questionable things in Aziraphale’s life, it’s Crowley’s fault." // 5.6K, Aziraphale POV. Crowley keeps 'finding' valuable porn then turning it over for various reasons; Aziraphale finally catches a clue. A fanfic about porn, which is not itself porn, lol.

Not So Blue by pineapplecrushface
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "Aziraphale presses his suit. Crowley mostly has a lot of questions." // 5.5K. Crowley POV.

Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "The world doesn't end. Crowley falls asleep. And Aziraphale stays by his side, waiting for him to wake up again." After Crowley goes into hibernation for a year, Aziraphale carts him around and pines. // 4.6K, Aziraphale POV. Rather cool notion but not esp. well written. Fic would be half as long if author simply stopped repeating same ideas over and over with slightly different wording.

A City Wall and a Trampoline by kafkian
Good Omens, Crowley/Aziraphale. "5 times Crowley knows he’s in love with Aziraphale + 1 time he knows the reverse." BFFs move out of London, share a cottage, a laptop, and an invitation to a wedding. All the while Crowley pines for things he can't have. // 4.7K. Crowley POV, purest curtain fic, with nuclear-grade pining.
Crowley gestures vaguely to humanity, which was presumably getting on with its business somewhere in the distance, comfortably far away from their small abode. It wasn’t that Crowley hadn’t liked London while he was living there, but it’s occurred to him since their relocation that he’d been warping the city around his own needs and desires for so long that he no longer knew it particularly well outside his carefully carved corner. He’d been rather startled to discover that he actually did want peace and quiet. He was getting old.

Good Omens, Aziraphale/Crowley. "Crowley has started to take a proprietary interest in Aziraphale's bookshop." That is, Crowley has finally decided to make his move and begins by way of interior redecoration. // 14.4K. Charmer. I really loved Daegaer's fic at the time, and I'd no idea cimorene had remixed it. In this variation there's just as much painting, but they're the usual two rather than humans.

A Road Bright and Swift by Dorinda
Lord of the Rings, Legolas/Gimli. The two travel back via Fangorn to their respective peoples: Gimli learns to swim, a parlous side quest is undertaken, and Legolas frets like a porpentine. // 15.6K, Legolas POV.
Gimli, freshly-wakened, was lying with his head propped on one hand, his blanket at his waist. And he said, his voice morning-hoarse, "If my memory doesn't fail me, we'll be reaching the River Limlight soon. I'd dearly love a wash."
Legolas's heart seized and tightened. The Limlight was in the very north of the forest, and once across it, they would emerge from their easy wandering, cracking out of the chrysalis to the pain of the open air. No more Fangorn, no more careless peace, no more Gimli at dawn stretching his muscles limber and grumbling about the wear of a bootsole.
And all the future losses lined themselves up.

Fight Like Girls for Our Place at the Table by napricot
Captain America, Sharon/Natasha (Steve/Bucky). "'It sure feels like a demotion. You’re taking me out of the field and out of intel analysis to babysit Captain America.' How Sharon Carter gets her groove back, fucks up some Nazis, and gets the girl, with unasked-for assists from a super soldier couple." // 52K. Sharon POV all. Pretty entertaining, v.v. slo-mo romance for Sharon, who's smitten with Natasha and later comes to think the regard could be mutual. Starts before CA:WS then forks after, so lots of agenting around for the CIA. (I'm kind of enjoying this seeming fandom consensus that none of the movies after that matter.)

Flyboys by aerialiste
SGA/Captain America, John/Sam. "John Sheppard is on convalescent leave--or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself, though it looks a lot more like hiding in a crappy apartment in Houston, never leaving except for physical therapy and more alcohol. So he’s not sure why he turns up at a kink club, much less why he starts hanging out with Sam Wilson, probably the only other guy on the planet with a tighter security clearance than his--not that either of them much wants to talk about work.
Two airmen, both with troubled pasts, find solace in each other one humid Gulf Coast summer. And the strength of the pull John feels toward Sam surprises him more than the odds of their meeting at all." // 100K(!), AU crossover. Post-CA:WS fork on the Marvel side; might also fork on SGA side (never watched last season, so dunno). Alternating POV. LONG, ~angst and unrequited pining galore, military jargon, lots of convoluted BDSM junk that's lost on me (John wants his ass kicked; Sam wants to kick it, I guess), background character death, pretty necessary glossary squirreled away in a side fic. But, all that aside, it's weirdly readable, generally well written with a good effort to sync the canons, and I wasn't bored.

* Timestamp + Glossary, https://archiveofourown.org/works/18210944 A kinda ehhh prefic threesome (John/Teyla/Kanaan); tagged on the bottom is the main fic's glossary. Wish I'd known it was there when I was reading the other fic. I'm sure this arrangement made sense to someone.

Understand the problem to solve the problem. (He tries not to think about what, exactly, the problem is.)" // 2.4K. Shane POV. Spinning his mental wheels until Ryan puts the moves on him.

Wait, what is this?" // 4.5K. Prequelish, a bit of introductory pining as Julian more or less trips into a realization he's crushing hardcore. Again.

* "Your Love Is My Drug," https://archiveofourown.org/works/724286 "Julian's research project in speculative reproductive xenobiology is turning out to be a little more complicated than he'd hoped." Julian attempts to court Garak ~subtly using Cardassian novels as a guide. // 17K. This is an Early Julian fic, so he's high-octane ~overly in all aspects, which is YMMV. With that in mind, it's a fun version of a popular theme -- Julian trying to figure out and enact a traditional courtship -- that mainly rolls along on pining and UST.

It no doubt would have continued to be fine, or at least fine-adjacent, were it not for a narrowly averted apocalypse and several bottles of a really quite nice Riesling Aziraphale had found in the back room of his newly restored bookshop." // 4K.

Eventually this leads to them doing a Buzzfeed pro/con show about woo-woo New Age/alternative stuff while not admitting they're attracted to each other. // 21K, alternating POV.

Garak must have a soulmate, and there's simply no way it could be Julian. Right?" // 5.7K. So. Two things I dislike: soulbonds and "5 things" fics. Yet this one has such good interactions btwn the two that I periodically wind up rereading it anyway. Ah, whatever.

He can use what he knows to save this world, but it's a secondary goal. // 52K. Do I want to read a bazillion words of unfamiliar fandom and characters? After some debate ... apparently yes. A twisty, complicated, engrossing sort of fic loaded with Decepticons. Very mildly slashy, but mostly filled with extreme pining for Lord Not-Appearing-in-This-Fic.

* "Elegy," https://archiveofourown.org/works/13028976 Cyclonus/Megatron. // 3.5K. Short, mournful fic where Cyclonus mulls over the glorious conquest of the universe that his true lord will never get to achieve. Megatron is less-than-impressed by that idea when it comes up during interfacing.

That is, Kirk returns from a deserted ice planet with an odd, persistent chill, which only grows worse despite nothing appearing to be medically amiss. Spock is persistently, gnawingly distracted by his captain's condition -- which is only logical under the circumstances. // 22K. Spock POV all. Set right after "Amok Time," which put heavy-duty stress on both their working relationship and their friendship. Loads of guilt, sublimation, pining, and H/C in an old-skool original flavor (the only one I'm familiar with, as happens); it seems destined to be a smarmfest but kicks it up a level.

The other intern assigned the desk next to Ryan's is an extremely tall vampire, the only one in their office and first one Ryan's ever met. He gradually gets to know Shane better and becomes more and more intrigued by and concerned about the well-being of the good-natured if periodically morose dude who's generally up for being victimized in BF food and ghost investigation videos. // 66K. Ryan POV. A verrry slow-build relationship fic that works out its own mythology. Eventually it does get around to sexy tiems (featuring blood, natch). Good read.
For something that would prove to be one of the biggest turning points of his life, it was an oddly simple exchange.
“Hey, Shane,” he said, slipping his headphones off one ear.
Shane glanced over, taking his own headphones off. “What’s up?”
“You want to do Unsolved with me? Brent is leaving.”
“Yeah, sure,” Shane said without hesitation, giving an easy shrug.
“It might be a time commitment if it takes off,” Ryan warned. He thought about suggesting that Shane could just do a couple of episodes to give Ryan the time to keep looking for someone more permanent, but Shane was already bringing up his Google calendar.
“Looks like I’m pretty clear for a bit.”
Ryan smiled in relief and started clicking on a couple of his episode files. “Cool.”
The headline of an article caught his attention. His smile grew wider.

(Novel) "When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned." // 118K (29 chapters). Not a fanfic. Long original SF/romance with royalty, arranged marriage, past abusive relationship, slo burn, pining galore, a melange of tropiness, and very readable. A lot of plot points rest on people not telling each other things they need to know so the frustration level gets teeth-gnashingly high at points.

Harry Potter, Harry/Draco. "Two years after the war, and Harry’s content with his life. OK, so it’s a little annoying that he keeps winning Witch Weekly’s Most Eligible Bachelor award, and he’s really not looking forward to the unveiling of an enormous gold statue of himself, but he loves his friends, and he loves being an Auror. And if he yearns for something more, something he can barely bring himself to think about, well, he’ll probably get over it. No one’s happy all the time, are they?
But then everything changes, and Harry’s thrown into a new and dazzling world he’s not sure he can actually escape from. And as time goes on, he starts to wonder: does he actually want to?" // 119K. So drunken Harry accidentallys himself into an alt-universe in which wizards aren't real, he's a directionless trustfund kid, and Draco is ... uh, Justin Beiber? More or less. It's super long, but also funny and engrossing with a truckload of pining and odd character twists and gay panic. (Background Ron/Hermione.) Good job.

Coming Home by astolat
Transformers, Megatron/Orion. "Megatron went back to Kaon." // 21.4K. So as I understand this, the war is over and Megatron (POV) returns to a deserted, ruined world to wallow in sadness, starts to rebuild it for no real reason, but then a variety of social castoffs begin to show up and help, then he stumbles over something he never could have expected down a mineshaft. I don't go here, but there's sufficient info to figure out what's what and who is who. Starts off as all about the tragedy but eventually does manage a touching HEA.

Secret Rooms of Hogwarts by Attila
Rivers of London/Harry Potter, Peter/Thomas. "When Peter Grant is whisked out of unemployment and into a post as Potions Master at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, he expects the teenagers to be the worst things in the castle. It's a pity Lesley May thinks one of the other new professors might be working for the Faceless Man. And as far as she's concerned, the most likely suspect is Defense expert Thomas Nightingale--gorgeous, talented, and a totally sketchy bastard." // 87K. Peter POV, fusion fic featuring RoL characters and general plot in an HP world/magic/etc. Peter is hired as a last-minute replacement to teach potions while his roommate Leslie, an auror, heads out on an undercover assignment to spy on the Faceless Man. It's pretty readable* and seems well thought out, but it doesn't really have a decided ending per se -- it just sort of meanders to an end, roughly equivalent to just after RoL "Broken Homes." Beverley and the other rivers are entirely off-screen mentions in this one. *Caveats: Judging from writer's belief that "fuck" is the perfect word for all occasions, I'm guessing she's really young. Found it genuinely off-putting in this context and kept weighing the merits of the back-button. Also, if rereading, please remember the sex scene made you want to stab the screen; just skip over it.

He gave Johnny one sharp punishing shake, and he said loudly, "Told you one of these days I'd catch up to you, Ed, you son of a bitch," and then he popped Johnny one across the jaw, as hard as he could bear.
Johnny's head snapped sideways, and he stumbled and almost fell again--but he'd recognized Henry, he must have, because when he caught himself and straightened up again he had his hands held out, pleading. "Joe, you--I didn't know you were in St. Louis--"
"I bet you didn't," Henry snapped, "or you'd never have shown your face."
"Aw, c'mon, Joe," Johnny said, with a whine in it now like he really was scared. "C'mon, can't we talk about this?"

Captain America, Steve/Bucky. "Steve's life after he throws down the shield and hides with Bucky in Wakanda is composed of the following: moping, having 80-year-old epiphanies, dramatically tearing the Avengers symbol off his uniforms, learning too much about goats, fighting, fighting more, fighting even more, trying not to make it weird, definitely making it weird." // 30K. Just finished WIP I was subscribed to for some reason. Unfortunately, it's been so long since I read the previous chapters I can't remember what this was about overall, so reread sometime. Anyway, Wakanda, various Black Panther cast, and goats, pre-Thanos.

He watched as Bayliss lifted and spread his arms, hooked his fingertips onto the fence, raised his downcast head, and like that, at full extension and wind-blown, he looked like he was about to take flight -- Where are you going, baby?" // 60K. Frank, Tim varying POV. Pre-S5, post-stroke, with a few fixits, expansions, and an wild veer into mutual obsession and sex. Not sure how I feel about it given the married with kids situation, but it's well done for what it is, taking off from their weird, fraught, and way too intense canon relationship. Tho might rely a bit too much on at least some preexisting knowledge of the show for a walk-in. (Old skool zine fic.)

Reichenbach Falls by mardia
Rivers of London, Peter/Beverley, Peter/Thomas. Set of three fics, set over a year's time, in which everyone (including Peter) copes with Peter's untimely demise.

* "The Old Familiar Places," https://archiveofourown.org/works/12064311 "On the day of Peter Grant’s funeral, Sahra wakes up with a knot in a stomach and the beginnings of a dull headache at her temples." // 7K, Sahra POV, gen. Sahra attends a funeral and witnesses a lot of unusual interactions.

* "The Shadows I Live with Are Numberless," https://archiveofourown.org/works/15747966 "Olympia sits up and stares at her. 'Bev. It’s been a month, and you’re still flooding the city four days out of seven. We can’t leave when you’re still like this.'" // 7K, Beverley POV. Beverley does not cope, and eventually forms an alliance of sorts with someone else who isn't really coping either.

* "For Suddenly I Saw You There," https://archiveofourown.org/works/16441673 "Peter Grant returns from the dead, and starts the longer process of returning home." // 66K, het, slash. Long fic in which Peter returns in a suitably weird way then has to piece together what's gone on in his absence -- he's missed a lot. Really involving series.

You & Me & The Pegasus Galaxy by CartWrite
SGA, John/Rodney. "When John Sheppard finds Rodney McKay's very explicit ads on the Atlantis hook-up board, he feels pretty weird and kind of loses his mind." // 29K, new SGA fic! John POV, fairly woobie, loads of sketchy skulking and pining, also sort of a comfy fixit in that it happily ignores most canon deaths (and I am OK with that).
“Atlantis has a hook-up board?!” Rodney McKay’s initial conversational blast could be heard in every corner of the mess hall as he approached their usual table. His accusing glare skated from Teyla to Ronon and landed on John as he sat down with his full tray. “How am I just finding out about this? We’ve been here literally years. How long has this been going on? It isn’t even online, in a city where even the moppingest floor-mopping moron can write code. When were you going to tell me about this?” Rodney demanded of them all, but John especially.
John took a slow bite of his fishy sandwich. Pegasus catfish tasted like Earth catfish in every way, but the texture was off. It took a little more chewing than normal. This gave him a few extra seconds to decide whether or not to admit he had no idea what Rodney was talking about.

With a little help from their friends, dramatic training montages set to 80’s rock anthems, and the early filmography of Harrison Ford, can our heroes get things back on track?" // 23K. Starts off with a bout of mortifying -- but also hilarious -- bad sex, with subsequent moping and avoidance and aaaangst and suchlike. Ultimately HEA, but it takes a while to get there.
Ryan imagines a training montage set to “Eye of the Tiger” in which he inserts larger and larger fake dicks in himself to rounds of cheering applause and then, after removing said dicks, he does a victory run up the Rocky steps.
And that’s ... it’s weird, but in service of a proper seduction —- *the thrill of the fight!* he thinks with a touch of hysteria —- there might be something to it. If dudes are going to be a thing that he does now, he’s going to do it right.

Pointing out that they look like sheets is the problem." // 6K. Shane POV. In medias res kidfic, oddly enough. But mainly an excuse for industrial-strength pining. Deeply odd, but readable.
Admittedly, this is ... kind of Shane’s fault. He’d challenged the Goatman, and the Goatman lost, and ownership the bridge transferred. There wasn’t any paperwork, no sparks or sounds or spooky shadows, just Shane’s finger pricking with blood, and the startled realization when they stood that the world has shifted slightly to the left.
Shane can’t explain it, other than that; it was like they’d gone onto the bridge in one world and left in a world that looked exactly the same, except they could see some ghosts, and those ghosts wanted to hold Shane’s hand.

In These Frozen and Silent Nights by beethechange
Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane. "Planning a shoot at a remote cabin in Vermont the week before Christmas wasn't Ryan’s best-ever idea. Taking a leisurely walk in a blizzard wasn't Shane’s. Scrap the ep, there’s a new plan: survive the storm, stay warm, try not to kill each other, and figure some shit out along the way." // 25K, Shane POV all. So clearly Ryan here is not a reader of fanfic, or he would know: a cabin that lacks propane, oil, gas generator, or even a bigass stack of wood is a Canadian shack, and its purpose is porn. Fic does take a v.v. long time to get to the boning, but it's time well spent; at several points was laughing like a loon.
Shane’s not sure how much time has elapsed since Ryan well and truly began to panic, but it’s been at least half an hour.
Shane’s not ready to admit that they’re lost, but he’s also forced to concede that they’re not _not_ lost.
“And people always take their clothes off when they get hypothermia, did you know that? So they’re going to say it was weird sex cult stuff. They will.”
“Shut up, Ryan. Let me think. We’re probably not going to die but I just, I need a minute.”
“I can’t help it, I’m going insane, this is snow madness. If you die first I am going to cut you open and huddle inside your body for warmth like a Tauntaun.”

It’s the Heat, Clearly by greenapricot
Lewis, James/Robbie. "It’s the heat, clearly. That’s why he’s imagining the hopeful, expectant look Hathaway gives him. Another couple of days of this and he’ll be completely off his head." // 4K, Lewis POV, wherein Lewis appreciates yet fails to recognize Hathaway's extended seduction campaign for what it is.

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.

13 Genuinely Awful Things About Steven by thefourthvine
Buzzfeed Worth It, Andrew/Steven. "Andrew’s learned to like cake, he’s learned to like oysters, and he’s learned to like Steven." // ~10K. Andrew POV. An expanded listicle of USTing and denial that loosely follows the season progressions. Read half of this at yuletide before wandering off in search of smut, but it's fine for the grumpy/happy vibe (tho needs more Adam, like the rest of life). Plus offers excuse to rewatch the cocktail episode.
A hand passes in front of Andrew’s face. “You with me?” Steven asks.
“Sorry,” Andrew says, hating himself a little. “I was busy growing as a person.”
Steven, being Steven, declares a break from their meeting. “We should give Andrew the space he needs to become his best self!” he says.
“Also, we need coffee,” Adam says. “It’s fucking nine in the morning.”
“Okay, and also we need coffee. Andrew? Does your new self drink coffee?”
Andrew’s pretty sure his new self is going to need coffee even more than his old self did, so he nods.

Off to the Races by Eve_Louise
DS9, Julian/Garak. "When DS9 intercepts a communication from the Orion Syndicate inviting a Cardassian Gul to an outlying moon, they ask their resident Cardassian to go undercover. With a Starfleet partner, of course, and who better than the intrepid Doctor Bashir?" // 20K. Julian's pleased to get a chance to be a real life spy -- but it's as a Bond Girl, the arm-candy from Risa for Garak, who's less than enthusiastic about the whole affair. So the leap to OMG ILU is whiplash sudden, but that aside it's pretty fun and twisty. (Tho I have to say, that the author passed on the opportunity for a cool TNG xover was disappointing.)

"In 2398, reporter Felix Marian interviews Chairman Garak and Ambassador Bashir about the formation of the Cardassian Democratic Union and ends up learning more about Cardassia than he intended." // 6.8K. Outside POV interspersed with Julian POV anecdotes. Not an exciting version of "Julian runs off to Cardassia to be a doctor," but I'll read any version of that. Some smut.

Family Placement by notlucy
Captain America, Steve/Bucky, historical AU. After his mother dies, sixteen-year-old Steve Rogers joins an orphan train from NYC to points West, willing to work hard on a Catholic family's farm to save up to make his own land claim. But it's not until the end of the line in Kansas when a surly (and atheist) farmer with a bum arm from the war picks up his contract, desperate enough for a farmhand to take whoever's left. // 88K, filled with 1880s farming and pining on prairie. Doesn't go overboard on the Steve maladies for a pleasant change. The shipping moves sloooow, but gets quite porny thereafter, with a fair topping of religious angst. Background Sam/Natasha. HEA.

Avengers/Thor, Valkyrie/Loki, Valkyrie/Loki/Thor. Valkyrie must wrangle a ship full of displaced Asgardians who've decided to dub her their queen, a peanut gallery of socialist tag-along gladiators, and an annoyingly silent and sporadic ghost. // 8.3K. Valkyrie POV, partially set post-T3, part post-A:IW. Weird brotherly dynamics, amusing/sad outcomes, and oddly warm and fuzzy resolution. All-around enjoyable fix-it fic.

Tezeta (Nostalgia) by vowelinthug
Black Panther/Captain America, Steve/Bucky. "Steve Rogers is a terrible tourist, and a lousy house guest." Steve hies himself to Wakanda the instant Shuri gives him an all-clear, without any clear idea of how he and Bucky are going to relate to each other now. // 20K, Steve POV. A gentle fic without too much angst, devoted to both gradually figuring out the other, now that they have a mutual pause in the action. Steve as Wakanda's first official tourist, and Bucky as less than appreciative of Wakandan popular culture (Garando!). A brief but pretty excellent conversation with T'Challa in here. I liked this fic so much. Typos throughout, but very readable anyway.

M is for Murder by rohkeutta
Captain America, Steve/Bucky. Bucky needs has bills to pay and wants to give back to his community. Posting his services online kills two birds with one stone in a literal way.
"I’m pretty low on funds and need to make ends meet this month," Barnes types slowly into a new post three days later. "I’m taking commissions for hits in the New York City area.
Will Not Kill: Captain America or other Avengers.
Will partially refund payment if target turns out to be HYDRA.
Will not go to Jersey. No dismemberment or killing children.
Message for negotiations and payment details."
4K. Was reading this again. Fairly short. Found the Briticisms too distracting the first time around; second time around found it absurd, funny.

The Dawn Will Break Before You by thepartyresponsible
Iron Man/Batman (MCU/DC), Jason/Tony. Interrupted in the midst of car theft, Jason, a small-time crook outta Gotham, finds himself the newest acquisition of a brilliant but self-destructive billionaire. But working as Tony's bodyguard Jason finds himself growing too invested and his own issues dovetailing far too neatly with those of his employer. // 12.6K, Jason POV (a never-Robin version). This is so, so good. Two damaged twentysomethings muddle along as employer/employee with massive doses of fluff, unacknowledged feelings, and banter. Pining galore. Pretty delightful fic, no knowledge of either canon required.
The man squints at him, focusing completely on him for maybe the first time in this entire conversation. Jason’s a little alarmed to find there’s a lot of intelligence in those eyes; he hadn’t expected it. He wonders if he’ll need to threaten him, maybe bash him lightly around the head a couple times to encourage him not to remember his face.
After several long seconds of staring, he starts fumbling in his pants.
“Woah,” Jason says, genuinely startled. “Where the hell is this going?”
He looks up at Jason, awfully snide for a man with his hand down the front of his pants, and then pulls his hand back up, wallet cradled in his palm. “Please,” he says, “you’re not that cute.”
“I’m a fucking heartbreaker,” Jason says, letting out a relieved breath. “Watch your fucking mouth.”
“Okay, heartbreaker,” he says, “how much to put the tires back on the car?”
Jason rolls his eyes again and gestures at him with the lug wrench. “Why don’t I just beat you up and steal your money? Is this the first time you’ve been to a bad part of town? Don’t show me your wallet, asshole. Come on.”
He heaves a heavy, aggrieved sigh and starts pulling out bills. “Five hundred?” He tries. “Six? We can go to an ATM.”
“You are mugging yourself,” Jason says, oddly impressed. “Holy shit.”

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.

Buzzfeed Unsolved, Ryan/Shane. Accidentally drunk married in Vegas! And posted on Instagram, of course. But Shane has a plan.
"Okay," Shane says finally. "Okay. Here's what we're going to do. We're just going to— we're going to be married. The only way out is through."
"Um," Ryan says, because this plan strikes him as counterproductive to their shared goal of not being married.

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.

Post-Canon Cardassia by bmouse
Deep Space Nine, Garak/Bashir. Unconnected fics, but I've connected them! And arranged them in a (tentative) reading order. Set in postwar Cardassia, with multiple POVs, covering the reconstruction period of Garak's rising influence and Julian's hopeful immigration and eventual clearance as a medical professional -- and a gradual courtship of diffident roommates. They're all low-drama, smut-free explorations a distinctive reptilian culture where stealth, indirectness, and subtlety are prized. (And I keep thinking about that image of Cardassians at the beach, lol.)

* Hail, Old Comrade, https://archiveofourown.org/works/988035 "Kira visits Garak on Cardassia." // <1K, gen. Garak winning over the masses, one delinquent at a time...

* The Harvest Season, https://archiveofourown.org/works/1580114 "On Cardassia even the flowers have secrets." // <1K. Garak POV, Bashir POV. Garak surviving post-war, Julian finding him.

* Not Quite Boston, https://archiveofourown.org/works/2525825 "Julian Bashir's post-war platonic 'Boston marriage' plan has a bit of a flaw." // 1K. Now Julian's moved in with his BFF! However.

* A Long-Term Plot, https://archiveofourown.org/works/859567 "How long do people live? In your family?" Julian asks. // <1K. An actual relationship conversation...

* Equivalent Exchange, https://archiveofourown.org/works/1008440 "So apparently to become a Cardassian citizen, one must have a molar extracted. Julian's not looking forward to it..." // 1.3K. No dental horror per se. A pretty, gentle fic about Julian earning his way into the medical establishment (with a tiny, quiet aside highlighting the diff. btwn ordinary kid Julian and his augmented afters).

* The Inconsequential Matter of the Feet, https://archiveofourown.org/works/1041696 "He had never once seen Garak wear open-toed shoes while on the station, which in hindsight was clearly deliberate." // 1.4K, Julian's meditations on foot claws, society, and reconstruction.

* Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus, https://archiveofourown.org/works/1104063 // <1K. Sunning Cardassians make excellent lounges, Julian finds.

* Another Line of Work Presents Itself, https://archiveofourown.org/works/1987704 "While wandering around a sun-warmed small town in central Cardassia Julian Bashir finds exactly what he was looking for. And a refreshing drink." // 3K. Julian POV. Spies gonna spy, official and nonofficial both. Part of this one is an outside POV, and it's hilarious.

* Little White Lies, https://archiveofourown.org/works/2128455 //9K. A series of laid-back ficlets, many set in the post-canon universe. These are lovely, and several are outside POV.

* Nine Years On, https://archiveofourown.org/works/2396348 "Elim Garak never imagined a future where he'd have to shave his husband for summer. Luckily, that's the one he's got. A glimpse into a little ritual between an old married couple." // 1.6K of co-grooming, Garak POV.
