Expansion Pack by Major
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, Bethany/Alex, Shelly/Seaplane. "One little mistake after winning the game forces them to be trapped in Jumanji for even longer, which would have been so much more bearable if Bethany could at least put it on Instagram." //8K. When Bethany (POV), queen of social media, finds herself tethered to a '90s metalhead on a side quest, there might be a whiff of romance in the air for the professor and the pilot. This is a really well done extra adventure, which stays mainly at mutual crushing level.

Rivers of London, gen/het/slash. Peter on leave gets counseling, which leads to him mulling over both Sir William and Beverley in the other world, which leads him to Asking Questions. // 2.5K. Peter POV. A conversation with Ty even. This is an interesting speculative sort of fic.

You're My Cherry Pie by novembersmith
Venom, Eddie/Venom. "The first time Eddie suggests they have sex, Venom is, more than anything else, extremely confused." //9K. Far funnier than I'd expected, given all the tentative, fumbling negotiating.
Also of relevance is that, based on its studies of tumblr and reddit, Venom has yet to discover an Earth object that at least one human is unwilling to copulate with. Vegetable, mineral, vehicle. There seems to be no end to what a human is willing to view as a sexual object. Humans will definitely, absolutely be the sluts of the galaxy once they figure out space travel. This is the thesis of Venom’s current visual essay, being presented to its unwilling subject.

"HERE WE SEE ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF A HUMAN ATTAINING SEXUAL RELEASE WITHOUT ANOTHER HUMAN PRESENT," it explains and clicks to the last slide of the powerpoint where it had organized the bulk of its research.

Parts Unknown: Bajor by fresne
Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown RPF/Deep Space 9, gen. "In the season eight premiere, Tony pays a visit to Deep Space Nine and Bajor." // 7.5K, AU. Haven't seen any Parts Unknown, but this is easy enough to follow. Dwells mainly on the occupation and recovery efforts in a way the canon never did, with the overall downbeat vibe leavened by rather goofy commercial breaks. It's pretty interesting (and filled with typos). Featured canon characters: Sisko, Jake, Jadzia.

Rivers of London, gen. "From community meetings to flooding Romford High Street. Not everything Peter does results in property damage but it's always major property damage when it does." // 1K. Here's an oddity. It's clearly a broken off fic chunk. Bookmarking mainly to find out who posted this and whether they ever plan to finish it, tbh. ETA: "Author" comments that it's complete. Sure. OK then.

God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen by kototyph
Rivers of London, Thomas/Peter. After he's blown off Beverley one time too many, she gives Peter a holiday gift that has him frantically avoiding Nightingale because now he wants the opposite of that. // 11K. Peter POV, sex pollen! Nothing from after "Hanging Tree," and also doesn't incorporate the Abigail short, so something of a fork AU. The family christmas chez Peter's mom and dad is pretty fun.
* "Let Nothing You Dismay," https://archiveofourown.org/works/17222336 Followup fic, the sex scene for the former.

"Self-made French tycoon Bill Norman" is planning to build his hypermarket on Harold Godwinson's quaint organic farm near Hastings in an Area of Outstanding National Beauty. However, as the Bayeux Blogger hints, there may be more to this situation than meets the eye (cough). // 3.5K. Norman Invasion, modern AU, told as emails, texts, tweets, and local blogger posts. Also sheep, bees, bodyguards, bulldozers, and protestors. FUN.

Almost Human, Kennex/Dorian. "Dorian gets infected with a sex bot virus. John gets infected with feelings." //2K.

Hawkeye/Young Avengers, Kate/America. "What America doesn't know won't hurt her. Right?" // 1K. Kate worrying over a dilemma. (Past Kate/Noh-Varr). V.v. cute.
"I'm not moping," Kate said. "What would I be moping about? My life is amazing. Madame Masque has ... not tried to kill me for twelve days in a row, my superhero team is currently mostly-funded, my boyfriend definitely didn't dump me for reasons he won't disclose—"

Lord of Light (Zelazny), Sam/Yama. "Yama wishes to know what it is like to be sixteen. Sam obliges, more or less. (Mostly less.)" // 1K. And it sounds remarkably like the book, wow. This pairing variation never occurred to me, tho it really should have. Sort of enemy slash, sort of not -- relationships and conspiracies and alliances get awfully fluid in this book.

Homemakers by Sophia_Prester
Rivers of London, gen. "At a very dangerous time of year, Peter is re-adjusting to being back at work, Nightingale has something on his mind, and the Folly's greatest defense comes from an unlikely (and delicious) source." // 5.6K. Followup sorta, kinda casefic to "Lies Sleeping." In the midst of everyone tensely waiting for Something Terrible to (possibly) occur and something being off with Thomas, Molly and Foxglove collaborate on a really touching project. (Background Peter/Beverley)
The problem wasn't Christmas itself, as annoying as it made things when you just had to nip down to the shop on a routine errand. The problem was that the Winter Solstice and all of the holidays that had accreted to it over the centuries made this time of year about as safe as the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.

Lies Sleeping, Chapter 12 // 1.3K. Outside POV, specifically the driver in question. Whew, it's mildly creepy.

I put out several UFO trackers in various parts of the field to get a better picture of what was going on. Whatever it was, it was certainly long-lasting; they’d gotten all the way through "Bohemian Rhapsody" the night before. It had been a pretty good cover, for an a cappella group that could only use the syllable “baa.”

A Self-Fulfilling Prophecy by Tangerine
X-Factor, Rictor/Shatterstar. "Summoned to Beverly Hills by Monet on their day off, Rictor, Banshee, Monet, and Shatterstar work to solve the case before it becomes a murder." That is, Monet wants to buy a house in a swanky part of town; the owner, a former clairvoyant, assures her someone's due to be murdered in it during her houseparty. //5K. Rictor POV, set during the heyday of X-Factor, so he's still kind of sour about everything but Shatterstar. Such a nifty fanfic for them, and I really enjoyed it. (Knocking off Star as some offhand visual joke was why I fucking loathed Deadpool 2.)
Julio snorted. "Despite what Madrox may think, we're not actually living in a noir film."
"The internet assures me I have all the qualifications for an homme fatale," Star said, his voice a warm murmur in Julio's ear. Julio kept his eyes fixed forward, scanning the crowd. He took another drink as Star continued, "I have clearly come in your life to seduce you and disrupt your existence."
"So that makes me, what, the doomed anti-hero in a spiral to his own destruction?"
"Not if I can help it," Star replied, thumb stroking over Julio's hairline, "though seduction is inevitable."

Superb Fry-Up (instrumental) by 51stCenturyFox
This Is Spinal Tap, Nigel/David. "Nigel likes staying in LA and there are many reasons: David, In-N-Out burgers, drought, David, and non-lethal sushi." // 1.6K. The band, as it were, today, in LA, brought out of retirement by the invention of vantablack. This marvelous and ridiculous. Also the phrase "three-decade groupie-grope minge binge."
“Nonsense. You’re staying here. There’s a guest room.” David gets up and motions to him to follow, and they head down the hall to a door. “See, it’s very roomy.”
“Hmm,” Nigel says. It is a big room, for certain. There’s a dresser and a turntable with headphones on a stand, and a leather chair, and one of those fluffy sheepskin rugs, but no bed. “There’s no bed, though.”
“Well, see...that’s why it’s so spacious. Minimalism!”
I note that the Rolling Stone article doesn't use the umlaut. Because it is pretentious "real" journalism, I suppose.

Better Cheated to the Last by Damkianna
The Sting, Henry/Johnny. The meetup in St. Louis doesn't go how Henry figured. Fortunately he can roll with the punches, and Johnny's good at taking a few. //3K. Henry POV. Whew, very small-scale con/rescue, and all sorts of manly, restrained feeeelings.
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?"

Mina de Malfois and the Changing of the Guard by Lilith
Mina de Malfois, gen(ish). "Mina’s latest novel project isn’t getting off to a good, or any, start. Arc suggests taking a quick, refreshing dip back into fandom." Mina, who's now a Fandom Doyen and profic writer, attends a con incognito; as usual, it doesn't go quite as planned. // 4K. A weird misspelling within the first few paragraphs almost sent me back-buttoning outta there, which would have been a huge pity because this one's really fun commentary on how fandom's changed (and hasn't) since the heyday of Mina on Livejournal.
Curious, I edged closer to the throng, trying to get a good look at some of their signs:
YOUR FAVE ISN’T PROBLEMATIC, HE’S ABUSIVE
IF U HAVE TO WARN, Y DO U HAVE TO SHARE?
STOP! IS YOUR SHIP UNHEALTHY?
And, succinctly: PEDOPHILES!! Although the sign really didn’t do much to clarify whether it was an objection or an enthusiastic cheer, it must be said.
I will probably also forever wonder what people did exactly with those bath products.

Lin Tao finally took pity on him. "No, Shen Wei. A fan club for you."

Bone Key, Booth/Radcliffe. "I had not expected to see John Pelham Ratcliffe again." When an unusually friendly and obliging Radcliffe comes to visit the Parrington Museum, Booth is instantly suspicious. //6.7K. And once Radcliffe expresses an ~interest in him, Booth's convinced: terrible things are afoot. (Oh, Booth, you woobie.) I'm inclined to label this as a fixit.
And yet I could not set aside my awareness of what he was not. Or an increasingly intense consciousness of the degree to which I would have preferred that it were Ratcliffe —- even as I was driven to acknowledge that it could not be. It felt grimly appropriate that I should be forced to the inescapable realization that I would have been glad to see him after all, by having the thing that was not him before me. And if I was able to be rid of it, I would know I had succeeded if I never saw him again.

With Love, Psmith by soupytwist
Psmith, Mike/Psmith. "Being a brief collection of papers from the archives of Rupert Psmith." // 3K.
Psmith's telegram about his wedding to Eve had found Mike, ever the true batsman, ready, willing, and waiting to give the ball a good thwack. Unfortunately, even the most capable batsmen may occasionally come a cropper. On this occasion, the flaw in Mike's approach was that he attempted to smile. Mike's usual smile on receiving happy news was a naturally charming, open grin. What he now managed was rather more like the expression one might make upon opening one's delivery from the grocer's boy to discover that the cabbages are mouldy and the requested carrots have been replaced with winter broccoli.
A fix-it attempt for unsatisfactory canon that accepts the canon and moves on from there. IDK. Not much weird banter, but it's a good attempt?
