The Criminal Keeper, an Origin Story by town_without_heart (PG-13)
Joe West never adopted Barry Allen. In the wake of his mother's murder and his father's incarceration, Barry is bounced between orphanages and foster homes, the child of an imperfect system.

Fast-forward fifteen years, to a future where Barry was never struck by lightning, never became the Flash. He works as a forensic analyst for the police and volunteers his spare time to the Wishing Well Foundation, granting wishes to children with life-threatening conditions. It's a pretty straight forward life, really.

... or it was, until a little girl named Anna is asked to make a wish. Her response? "I want to meet Captain Cold." Barry Allen/Mick Rory/Leonard Snart, Mick Rory/Leonard Snart (11,741 words)

per cyprinella: Stupidly cute AU where Barry isn't the Flash and spends his free time convincing super villains to visit sick kids.

It's a Pleasure by willowbilly (R)
Kilgrave acquires Will at the opera. Hannibal objects. non-con-Jessica Jones/Kilgrave. Jessica PoV (8,692 words)
“What are you?” Kilgrave wonders aloud, breathless, his nail beds white with pressure where they're clamped around Will's skull, flattening his hair.

“A former FBI profiler, an unstable special agent. A mental patient, a fisherman. A murderer. A patchwork psyche stitched together. A broken, blood-drenched nobody. One half of a whole.”

“And an aspiring poet, apparently,” Kilgrave quips, releasing Will's head in order to ever-so-slowly pull Will's glasses from his face, fold them, and slide them into his own pocket. “Well now, I do believe you're worth keeping. At least for the time being. Will, Jessica... come along.”

Contraception’s Con Men by Garry Wills | NYRblog | The New York Review of Books
By a revolting combination of con men and fanatics, the current primary race has become a demonstration that the Republican party does not deserve serious consideration for public office. Take the controversy over contraceptives. American bishops at first opposed having hospitals and schools connected with them pay employee health costs for contraceptives. But when the President backed off from that requirement, saying insurance companies can pay the costs, the bishops doubled down and said no one should have to pay for anything so evil as contraception. Some Republicans are using the bishops’ stupidity to hurt the supposed “moderate” candidate Mitt Romney, giving a temporary leg up to the faux naïf Rick Santorum; others are attacking Barack Obama as an “enemy of religion.”

Pusillanimous Catholics—Mark Shields and even, to a degree, the admirable E. J. Dionne—are saying that Catholics understandably resent an attack on “their” doctrine (even though they do not personally believe in it). Omnidirectional bad-faith arguments have clustered around what is falsely presented as a defense of “faith.” The layers of ignorance are equaled only by the willingness of people “of all faiths” to use them for their own purposes. Consider just some of the layers:
*The Phony Religious Freedom Argument
*The Phony Contraception Argument
*The Phony “Church Teaches” Argument
*The Phony “Undying Principle” Argument

Why I Refuse to Be Taken to a Catholic Hospital—And Why Other Women Should Too by Erin Matson, Editor at Large, RH Reality Check
Why I Refuse to Be Taken to a Catholic Hospital—And Why Other Women Should Too
Under no circumstances do I ever want to be brought to a Catholic hospital or medical facility. As a pregnant woman—and as a human being, period—I do not trust that my health needs will guide the care I am offered at such a facility. Furthermore, I urge other women to speak up, write an advance medical directive, and let their friends and family know that they do not consent to be taken for treatment at a Catholic hospital.

The reason I don’t want to be taken to a Catholic hospital isn’t because of abstract notions about morality, the separation of church and state, or when different faiths say life begins. Rather, I refuse because in Catholic hospitals patients may be refused medical treatment on the basis of church teachings. That’s a pretty big deal if an ambulance or well-meaning relative brings you to one while pregnant, after a rape, or any time you need urgent medical care.

"Cold Days by Jim Butcher" review by Ern and Leeard (becausewewatchtoomuchtv)
The handful of reasons Ern and Leeard liked + 19 reasons they hated "Cold Days," all mostly non-spoilery.
Overall, our expectations for this book were low, since we knew it would involve Winter Court stuff, and we were STILL disappointed. The book was fine. We're just glad it's over so Harry can move onto other subject matter. We hate that we have to wait another year to get the book we would like to have had on Tuesday. We wanted more emotion, but a lot of that has been set up for next time (Maggie, Fix, Molly, Michael), so we're not worried that, eventually, we will get what we want. For now, meh.

Book grade: C
But we still love this series.

The Butterfingers G. D. I. Stark Guide to Problem Solving by Epiphanyx7 (PG-13)
Tony begins to notice that things are going missing from his workshop... and discovers that his bots have been hiding a very, very big secret from him. Or rather, a very, very small one.

In which Dummy is a kleptomaniac, You is painfully shy, Butterfingers is a programming genius, JARVIS is a sarcastic sonofabitch, Pepper takes care of Tony outside of the workshop, Bruce is Tony's boo, Thor is Tony's favourite, Clint is actually kind of smart, Steve has terrible timing, and problem-solving is never simple or easy.

Or, Robots Don't Get Pregnant, But That Doesn't Mean They Can't Make a Baby (18,956 words)
“It’s not every day your kids grow up and have their first child,” Steve says, patting him consolingly on the shoulder.

It might be worth arguing that the robots aren’t really his kids, except that Tony pretty much literally just finished giving them a robotic sex talk and he’s not up for arguing with Steve about something this pointless and untrue. Plus, it would hurt Dummy’s feelings. Dummy is sensitive.

He roars, angry and jagged in a way she recognizes, oh, so well. They fight until he has her under him, armor dented enough to impede her movements and help still too far away. Loki’s face is half an inch from hers as he hisses, “I will break you into pieces, little mortal.”

Because she has no weapons left except bravado, she meets his green gaze cooly and answers, “There isn’t much left to break.”

I've been meaning to tell you I've got this feeling that won't subside by pollyrepeat (PG-13)
In which Phil Coulson prepares to take on the entire universe, plays dead, has a series of tiny adventures with Clint Barton, and solves a problem of his own making. (4,815 words)
the next time he feels capable of thought he’s in a glass jar with holes poked in the lid, the way small children keep ladybugs, rattling around inside some sort of bag. Although his frame of reference is a bit covered-in-darkness, he has a terrible suspicion that he’s … shrunk.

Three inches tall and kidnapped by an evil “magician” who apparently deserves the title without the condescending scare quotes.

… Okay. Just another day at work.
