I haven’t read much Person of Interest fic in a while, so when this one started popping up all over, I gave it a pass. But then I read it anyway. Apparently my mind is very changeable. And I’m so glad I did! It was surprisingly charming, and I 100% have a soft spot for […]

Inception fandom ftw, y/y? I mean, this morning I read: The warp and weft that hold life together, by anamuan (The one where Eames is Philippa’s kindergarten teacher, and Arthur joins the PTA.) And I’m pretty sure I had a delighted smile the entire time. Plus, it reminded me that I should go back and […]

An old school Stargate Atlantis rec this week, via BlueMeridian! (I was so startled to see a livejournal page, and then startled all over again when I started thinking about how much fandom has changed over the last nine years.) From 2008: Or Something Like It, by semivowel (Basically, John gets truth-serumed, and it takes […]

Sticking with the Harry Potter trend for a third week! This fic holds the (dubious?) honor of being the only fic I’ve ever read with Theodore Nott as a romantic lead. Extremely light-hearted, extremely AU — featuring helpful mirrors! blind dates! everyone lives! Finding Mr Right, by Nia_River Wherein Ginny thinks Heidi needs to get […]

FYI: this is the series that ate last weekend (oops) and a not insignificant portion of this week (no great loss). But I thoroughly enjoyed it! (I also skipped all the way to the end *really* early on, just to check. Look, it’s important to me to know what I’m getting into before I get […]

Future’s Past, by darkseraphina This one reads like a completely enjoyable regency romance novel (absolutely intended to be a compliment, as someone who loves a good regency romance!). All of the Tragic Past pretty much wraps up after the first few chapters, and from then on it is all Enjoyable Correspondence and Strolling in the […]

Aww, this is one of those Shadowhunter AUs where everyone has improbable amounts of free time and even more improbable amounts of disposable income and they take naps and cook meals and fall in love. Super enjoyable fluff. the world’s a little brighter, by thessalami “I’d offer you my hand but you’ve been holding it […]

Found this one in my ‘Saved For Later’ history in AO3. One of those ‘post-Cap2, pre-everything-else’ fics that envisions a happier MCU where people nap in puppy piles and visit IHOP for breakfast. The Gift Horse, by fartherfaster Sam and Darcy are formally introduced for the first time. Sam says “formally” with some flexibility. And […]

Found this while reading AO3 fic tagged “dragons.” Because dragons are cool. Tony Stark and the Sentinel of Liberty: A Marvels Adventure, by Sineala (I almost didn’t click through because it’s also tagged Marvel Noir, which is — not really my jam. But I’m glad I did! I mostly pretended they were an AU of […]
