Vanessa Sommer’s Other Christmas List by Ben Aaronovitch
Rivers of London, October Man. Another Waterstones edition-only short story, this time a KDA story with Vanessa Sommer.
Sommerscheid, population nine hundred and thirty-three, sat astride the Sommerbach: a tiny tributary of the Kyll in the one wide spot in an otherwise narrow valley that snaked up into the wooded hills of the Sommerwald. Vanessa’s father swore blind that the village had its origins as a secret bandit camp whose nefarious residents had discovered that it was more lucrative to harvest wood, honey and charcoal from the forest than to mug passers-by. Not to mention the famous local game sausage called Sommerwurst which was less a salami than a wild-whatever we shot when hunting-wurst or the fierce homebrewed peach schnaps that, despite technically being illegal, was still drunk on special occasions such as, for example, it being the month of January.

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.

Nat Geo by neveralarch
Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Doreen/Kraven. "Kraven needs a plus one to the National Geographic Anniversary Gala. Doreen was born for this." // 1K. "THIS IS SO DELIGHTFUL" Yes. Yes it is.
It was a suit. It was a bright orange and black tiger-striped suit. It could be seen from the Kree homeworld, and nobody actually knew where that was.
"I thought I was prepared," said Doreen. "I thought I could handle it when you showed up half-naked. I spent a lot of time thinking about that, actually, just so I could be perfectly ready."
"I can be classy when required," said Kraven.
"This is. This." Doreen looked him up and down. "This."
"It is a print," said Kraven. "Not real skin. I did not want to cause further confrontation with the PETA people, after they have already thrown paint at me fourteen times. Also, leather suits are inappropriate for light evening wear."
Doreen was still struggling to finish the sentence she'd started two minutes ago. She couldn't figure out how to convey why it was okay to dress up as a squirrel to fight crime, but not okay to dress up as Tony the Tiger for the world journalism event she'd always dreamed of attending. She could have just said that, those words exactly, but she had the feeling that Kraven wouldn't understand.
"It's silk," said Kraven. "Would you like to feel?"
Doreen felt Kraven's sleeve. She slightly revised her opinion on the tiger suit.

“He didn’t know what a Gordie Howe hat trick was.” Holster spreads his hands. “How this kid made an NCAA team...”
“By playing hockey,” Bitty grumps cheerfully.
Ransom shakes his head in despair. “We had to educate him right from the top.”
“So.” Jack folds his arms. “Instead of working on skills that might actually make you useful to our team right now, you’re dwelling on irrelevant things that happened a century ago..."
Bitty’s happy eyebrows start to wilt.
“...and you didn’t invite the history major?”

Miss Gibson said, "In the spirit of truthful admission, Miss Bennet, I intend to spend some time devising the right question for you. If I may see you again?"

Love Across the Multiverse by Sineala
Avengers 616/Ultimates. Tony and Steve get kidnapped again by Mojo's crew to star in interstellar reality TV -- but, oops, technical difficulties: they raided the wrong dimension. Still, the show must go on.
Mojo presents: Love Across the Multiverse! In tonight's episode, a battle-hardened supersoldier finds himself drawn to his handsome, genius teammate! It's an agonizing duel between his long-held beliefs and the secret passions of his heart! Will true love conquer all? There's only one way to find out! Don't miss the highlight of the season!

(Viewer discretion is advised. Mojoworld residents who do not vote for their favorite participants of the season will be summarily sent to the arena. All hail Mojo.)
//Incredibly porny (and mildly funny at points). Ult!Steve (POV) is paranoid, phobic, messed up, and woobie, and utterly unequipped to deal with alien-wtf. But Tony is a smooth operator as well as a fairly compassionate one. Grah, I think I'll forever resent that they didn't pair these two up in these comics -- blatant opportunity.
She's wearing some kind of khaki jumpsuit with a large number of belt pouches.

Life Sentence by astolat
Fast & Furious, Dom/Brian, AU. Dom's back in Lompoc penitentary for a 25-to-life stretch, so he cuts a deal to soul-bond with a fed as a get out of jail free card. Meanwhile, Brian's being offered a mission he wishes he could refuse. // I prefer Brian/Roman, I don't like soulbond fics, and astolat's kinks are not mine, so ... surprise! Enjoyable read, with insane car stunts and copious smut. Similar theme in an SPN fic of hers from back when.

What Little Girls Are Made Of by Lise
Captain America, Sharon|Natasha. "Everyone's heard of the Black Widow. Not everyone has the Black Widow dropping into their apartment unannounced to leave her phone number on the table." Sharon works at the CIA now, yet Agent Romanoff is randomly appearing in her life. // On the one hand, elaborate acquaintanceship dance, OK! (Despite label, not femslash or even pre.) On the other hand, cuts off just when things get really interesting. Which is a touch annoying.

Let's talk about category structure and oppression!
Oh hey. This is fairly simple and sensible as expanations go.
We tend to have this idea that categories, like "bird" or "food" (or like "human" or "white", which is what this is all really about) are like solid boxes. Entities are either in them or out of them, with a clear and unchanging boundary, and everything inside is an unsorted & equal jumble, and everything outside ditto.

Multifandom. "Where is our line?" (On the Prowl, Lydia Lunch) // Wow. How did I not see this one before? It gives thinky thoughts. Not just their deal but a fandom in general escalation, first kiss to A/B/O noncon slave AU... I recognized so many of those clips at first glance; my nerd/fan-fu is strong and pathetic.

Hockey RPS, Sid/Geno. "Sid goes to bed in LA on June 12 and wakes up June 13 in Pittsburgh. That would be weird enough in itself, but the thing is, he doesn't wake up alone." // It's another one of those Magical Stanley Cup fics, this one with woke-up-married. So nothing innovative, but fairly entertaining anyway. HEA.
