Stand Fast in Your Enchantments | DevilDoll, Rahciach
"Stiles knew damn well what a pissed-off wolf sounded like, and every hair on the back of his neck was telling him that somewhere in this room was a very pissed-off werewolf." An AU in which Derek is feral, Stiles is magical, and they eat a lot of fast food.

//

Taking nothing away from the accomplishment of writing this many words - generally really good words! - I really, really wish this had been published differently, as two longish fics in a series, and then a bunch of timestamps.

I really loved the first two chapters and the first bit of the third, but as a reader, having the tension apparently totally resolved only to launch off again in a new direction was first bewildering, and then irritating as it continued. I liked the content, I just wish it was more navigable.

Summary:

“We need you to be married,” Lamarque says.

“Pretend to be married,” Fantine clarifies. “Or pretend to be boyfriends, that’s fine too.”

“It’s the living together that’s important.”

Grantaire swallows. “I beg your pardon?”

Or: the one where Enjolras and Grantaire are spies sent to a small village to be undercover boyfriends.

Et in Arcadia ego - Lewis fic (Lewis/Hathaway): A Joy Forever
Summary: Lewis helps him strip the skin-tight leather gloves off without soiling his coat, and that’s enough to make James indulge in a quick internal grin. There’s no storm blown through the world yet that didn’t blow some wind through the turbines, as his gran used to say.

Summary:

Being alive and going on with his life is taking some getting used to. So is this thing with Duck.'

**
This story, y'all. I already have an especially weak spot for lovely, quiet stories about grownups who are finding (or creating!) a place with each other, and this is particularly beautifully written, and takes Dan from hospital to new home in a way that felt very suited to him and to the canon.

Caffeine and Unpaid Overtime - Anonymous - Frontier Wolf - Rosemary Sutcliff [Archive of Our Own]
After an incident, Dr Alex Aquila is relocated to an obscure ward in a tiny hospital in the north of England. There are too many patients, too much paperwork and his SHO Hilary is impossible to work with. But at least surgical trainee Connor has shown him some friendliness. With a life to rebuild, and many challenges ahead, can Alex figure out who he is and what he really needs?

So good. Astonishingly detailed, and full of feeling, and just generally yay

King and Lionheart
Stating the probably-obvious, but quite good! Really solid use of the trope, manages to hold your typical measure of tension and interest without needing to go to the place of wanting to bang the character's heads together to get past some hurdle.

Summary:

Sidney’s wedding day doesn’t go quite as he’d planned. When he’d bothered to imagine it at all, he’d thought of a nice June wedding in Nova Scotia, outdoors with the sun streaming down. He hadn’t imagined this hurried affair on the tarmac on a rainy and unseasonably cool day in early September, a month after his twenty-fifth birthday.

Drunken Confessions

Summary

Harry surrenders his mug, burrowing in against Nick's side again as soon as Nick's put the mug down and he can. "I want people to know. Or think about asking. Not just assume that I'm straight because, you know."

"Because that's all they've seen?" Nick gives in to temptation, just a little, and strokes Harry's hair, trying to ignore the pleased sound he gets in response. "You're right, that is rubbish."

"I know!" Harry says, like it's a revelation. "It's rubbish how people think I'm straight because I like girls."

too busy being yours (to fall for somebody new) - sewmyname - One Direction (Band), Radio 1 RPF [Archive of Our Own]
This is so nicely done, and I'm glad I'd read it first, because I tried three or four paragraphs at random in their other fic, and I literally couldn't continue without cringeing. So overwrought. But this isn't! Probably benefits from depending on Nick's voice. Or an uncredited beta. Or a lot of study in a month. Something.

Summary:
Harry props himself up again and gives Nick a wobbly grin, his cheeks visibly flushed even in the dull light, sweat all through his curls. “Happy Valentine’s Day, Grimmy,” he says softly, his smile broad, his eyes locked on Nick’s.

A few years from now, Harry and Nick have a picnic together on a sunny London afternoon. Flashbacks happen.

wished for infinity - crucios - One Direction (Band), Radio 1 RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Literally the worst at talking to each other, but for a relatively harmless reason in the scheme of the ridiculous angst and infidelity floating around this pairing tag, so pretty sweet in the end

Summary:
Nick’s been known to forget things of importance, but this he thinks he would probably remember. He’s relatively sure Harry’s never uttered a word about even considering buying a new place, let alone actually buying one. In Nick’s bloody neighbourhood. Which—well, actually it kind of hurts, but Nick would probably never admit that out loud.

I put off reading this for a long time for some reason, but I quite liked it.

Summary:
Harry bites his tongue and stops himself from saying something really, really stupid like: I love you. He could get away with it, he knows. Nick would probably laugh it off, but. But he’s not up for taking that risk. Instead he pulls out his phone and texts Louis: We’re banned from Radio 1 Breakfast. :( x

Pull Me Under - Chapter 1 - zarah5 - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
I was so skeptical about the length going into this, but it's so well paced, and somehow all felt necessary to me.

Summary
AU. As the first British footballer to come out at the prime of his career, it helps that Louis Tomlinson is in a long-term, committed relationship. Even if that relationship is fake. (Featuring Niall as Louis' favourite teammate, Liam as Louis' agent, and Zayn as Liam's boyfriend, who just happens to be good friends with one Harry Styles.)

Don't Look Down - Chapter 1 - zarah5 - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Something about the first 4-5 chapters didn't *quite* work for me (the self-mocking in Louis's voice constantly hanging a lantern on his more flowery or emotional thoughts, maybe) but the last ones made up for it in spades.

Summary:
AU. In which Louis is a solicitor at one of London’s most prestigious law firms and Harry happens to apply for the position as his trainee. And everyone else is around, too.

I absolutely mean this as a compliment: If you're looking for some id-tastic unloved "loser" finds people who appreciate their true awesomeness fic, there you go.

Summary:
Because the thing is: it's silly, being grown up, and chasing a childhood dream. Liam's almost eighteen, and he isn't bringing a wage home, and he isn't getting anywhere, and he's tired of building everyone's hopes up—including his own—when it's clearly never going to happen. He isn't worth it.

AU in which Liam never goes back to re-audition for X Factor, but stays in Wolverhampton to become a mechanic instead

Best of All Worlds - Sarren - Lewis (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Best of the post-series OT3 fics I've seen so far; I think a lot of the credit for that goes to the first section and the choice to alternate through their points of view. I don't doubt they're capable of the care and negotiation it would take to make it work, but its felt a little shoehorned for me, before.

Summary:

James and Laura's friendship started out because of Robbie, but became something stronger, enabling them to negotiate a happy ever after for all of them.

Summary:

In which Stiles goes along with one of Derek’s plans and ends up in an alternate universe as a result. He should’ve known better. He did know better, actually, and that means he has no one to blame but himself.

“Laura wants to lure the kid in with food and kindness and make a pet of him, like a feral cat. Derek wants to have him arrested for stalking. They’re at an impasse. (And the rest of the family is staying emphatically out of it in a way that suggests bets have been placed.)”

Moon Chaser - pandabomb - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
By authors admission, sort of handwavey western, but a really nice shot at basically a S1 story in a rugged setting.

Summary:

"I need to find a wolf," said the sheriff's kid, voice full of gusto. Derek set his cigarette in his empty whiskey glass. He let the silence between them settle, though it was drowned already by the band tinkering away by the bar. He waited until the boy was blushing, unsure and tense, before responding, slow and languid: "You found one."
