Um, somebody is writing the Hell on Wheels fic where Fong really is a boy and basically nothing else changes at all? And Bohannan is falling and confused and doing that stoic resistant as hell but in way over his head as usual thing? Right? Just like what he's doing in the show and it's all the same but all completely different? Somebody's on that, right? Because I've been a very good girl and it's almost Christmas and the internet (sometimes) gives me things I want. Right?

Stories With No Comments or Kudos: They all have kudos! Woo! I have no comments on 20 little fics, which is too many to list.

Go on, Killing Your Number! Not bad for a self-indulgent fic I thought no one would want to read.

Overall, I think this isn't bad, considering I uploaded a bunch of these fics BEFORE they added the kudos feature. (How aghast was I? Verily very.) I will never be at the top of fandom, I know that, but I think I occupy that warm, squishy little spot in the middle. It's warm here. There's a pillow fort. I like it.

Although, oh, for the glory days of lj where comments were plentiful and filled pages instead of just having a little button to click, and the comments sparked chatting and ideas and spawned more fic all the time.

In other news, one of the young teenagers in my English class was very excited to see we were doing a class about the internet and being a "nerd". The definition of nerd in the book was truly awful, so I told them to cross it out and we discussed what it really meant and if they thought they were nerds. Some said no and there were a couple of gamers, but she seems to be really into sci fi. She said that being a nerd was having a blog and watching certain shows and movies and reading about them. I asked what she meant reading about them: articles? blogs? She said, no, fanfiction. That's only the second time fanfic has come up in conversation for me in RL in all the years and years and yeeeeeears I've been into it. I had mentioned a few shows that I watched, which made her eyes widen, and when I said, "Oh, really? You write fanfic?" they did the saucer thing. I could see her going: someone KNOWS. I don't have to explain what FANFIC is. She knows about SUPERNATURAL. She stuttered out that she just read it, and I moved the class on.

Aw, baby French fangirl. :D

Jupiter Ascending: Follow Every Highway by [archiveofourown.org profile] gallifreyburning - Jupiter Jones/Caine Wise, explicit. Jupiter Jones needs a green card. Caine Wise needs a place to live. What's a little marriage of convenience, between strangers? Such a delight watching them fall in love backwards. I loved this different setting for them and how they were still so them.

Avengers: you're gonna give your love to me - [archiveofourown.org profile] irnan - Steve/Bucky/Natasha, mature. In which Natasha Romanov gets dosed with sex pollen, pines self-indulgently for her best friends, dreams a lot, and has to deal with being dated. And it's cheesy and hot and lovely with such a feeling of coming home and finding exactly what you've been looking for and it's more than you ever expected and, unf, what a lucky girl.

Star Trek: Winter-Over by [dreamwidth.org profile] downjune - Kirk/Sulu, R. In Antarctica, winters last seven months. AU where the crew have all ended up working in Antarctica. This was a hell of a ride. The oppressive winter versus the glorious landscape; the way they were fighting personal demons and getting to know each other. It felt really organic. I really bought into it.

Star Trek: Observations by anon_j_anon - Kirk/Spock, R. First Officer Spock comments on life aboard the Enterprise and his service under Captain James T. Kirk. This is the reboot crew following, roughly, TOS timeline. It's one of the best first person fics I've ever seen, in Spock's voice no less. There are parts of it so intensely smart it made me hugely covetous that someone was able to write it and capture Spock so well. There are parts of it that absolutely SHONE with brilliance. It also could have used a good beta and there are some shorter chapters that I skimmed through as I'm not big on scattered thoughts or dreamscapes and the like. I also found it very odd that Kirk's ever other word was fuck but no one else in the future seemed to swear. But overall this is an EPIC love story. It answers and poses some great questions about their universe. It's Kirk and Spock that we know and love but obviously they are different in some very striking ways after the events of the reboot movie, and this really shows (in a good and fascinating way). The way they navigate their relationship, their mission, their friendships, their horrendous and joyous experiences on-board... I lost days, on and off, reading this fic. It's so, so worth a read.

Hannibal: Troppo by [archiveofourown.org profile] xzombiexkittenx - Will/Hannibal, gen. Where Will gets a minor injury and Hannibal massively overreacts. What is not to love in watching Hannibal massively overreacting? NOTHING. THERE IS NOTHING NOT TO LOVE.

The Walking Dead: The Game Changer by [archiveofourown.org profile] thelongcon - Rick/Daryl, mature. They're sheltered in this part of Alexandria, no one is looking, no one cares. Rick looks rumpled, ruptured open, there's a touch of whimsy to his voice when he confesses: "I could drift here." I loved the insight, the language, the way the author showed them both.

Crossover: Fantastic Four/Spiderman: Tied to the Wait and Sees by [archiveofourown.org profile] Mizzy - Johnny Storm/Peter Parker, teen. Johnny Storm's in love with Spider-man. Then he walks into a time anomaly and wakes up in the future married not to his beloved Spider-man, but to Peter Parker. As you do. My comment on this fic was: Oh my god. RIDICULOUS, RIDICULOUS DORKFACED DUMB-ASS. This was so much fun to read. Heee. And I stand by that.

You remember the days when I said I couldn't get behind Will/Hannibal in case Hannibal ate his face when they were making out, and wasn't interested in Steve/Bucky because there were much more interesting things going on in the Avengers fandom? Yeah... yeah, me too.

Captain America: Half of the History (We Shall Never Know) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Speranza - Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers, Bucky/Steve/Peggy, Bucky/Steve/Natasha, explicit. This is a war story. One of those fics I stayed up faaaar too late reading because I just couldn't stop. It's really spectacular: a war story through and through, then lives led far beyond what they thought they'd get to have. I loved this version of Bucky and The Winter Soldier, and the way he and Steve were together, as necessary and natural as breathing. Beautifully written and hurty and hopeful.

Captain America: Winter's Children by [archiveofourown.org profile] Neery - Bucky/Steve, explicit. When their attempts to recreate the super soldier serum failed, Hydra started trying to breed Captain America clones from his genetic samples. Unfortunately, the serum's effects aren't passed down genetically, so instead of an army of tiny Captain Americas, they get a bunch of tow-headed, asthmatic, allergic, immuno-compromised little Steves. Oh, man. Amazing. How the author managed to put the Winter Soldier in this position and make it believable and make it work AND make each of the characters compelling and unique AND make it so very hurty and so very delightful all at once... I do not know. But loved every bit of it. So full of hurt and hope. Tony's interaction with Bucky was delightful.

Captain America: Not Easily Conquered by [archiveofourown.org profile] dropdeaddream and [archiveofourown.org profile] WhatAreFears - Steve/Peggy, Steve/Bucky, mature. Steve survives the crash, marries Peggy, whom he is madly in love with, and in 1966 thirteen letters that Bucky wrote are found. AND GOOD GOD. The DETAILS in this fic. The LONGING. Wonderful.

Avengers: Debt by [archiveofourown.org profile] Storynerd - Tony/Loki, teen. Tony Stark shouldn't find Loki fascinating, but he does, because all he’s ever wanted to do is take things apart to see how they work. Besides, he’s never been any good at following the rules. Marvellous. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Batman: Rumplestiltskin by [archiveofourown.org profile] xzombiexkittenx - Jonathan Crane/Bruce Wayne, Poison Ivy/Harley Quinn, explicit. Bruce Wayne finds Jonathan Crane and makes the mistake of taking him home. Things don't get any better when Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn roll up into town. This is quite brutal and awful, but very compelling and rather marvellous and I was fascinated by the whole thing. Just like you'd expect Gotham to be, I suppose. This is what happens when there is fear toxin and rampant mentally ill supervillans and scary man-bats running around. I'd expect nothing less.

Batman: Straightway Dangerous by [archiveofourown.org profile] xzombiexkittenx - Jonathan Crane/Joker, mature. Jonathan Crane and the Joker in Arkham. Oh, the mayhem and destruction these two boys could wreak.

Hannibal: Taken for Rubies by [archiveofourown.org profile] emungere - Will/Hannibal, explicit. Will invites Hannibal over for dinner. Hannibal brings him wine and flowers. A dissection of their pasts and the slow convergence of their domestic lives. Oh my GOD. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous. There were parts of this that were that rare kind of scorching hot, where the tension and the want and the "oh, this is so very wrong but we're going to do it anyway as it's been missing from my life basically forever" were palpable. The way they were together was divine, their wants and needs and the lengths they would go to and the things they would give up for each other. Such details and writing. emungere gives AMAZING Will/Hannibal. A truly wonderful read. Five stars.

Hannibal: get over that hold out by [archiveofourown.org profile] amare - Will/Hannibal, teen. Will's obligated to attend the annual BAU Christmas party. Katz wants him to feel like part of the team, Jack's just trying to indulge his wife, Price is going for the open bar--and Will knows there's no way Dr. Lecter would be caught dead at such a black-tie travesty. Is a fluffy Hannibal fic even possible? Apparently so. Not even that it was super fluffy, but just felt like it was because, y'know, Hannibal. This was lovely, and still very them.

Hannibal: down the rabbit hole by [archiveofourown.org profile] amare - Will/Hannibal, explicit. He went to sleep in an asylum; he woke up in a reality not his own. (The non-opaque summary: Will wakes up in a universe where he and Hannibal are dating.) This whole series was wonderful. Rich and detailed and fascinating.

Mad Max: Fury Road: Dust and Fire by [archiveofourown.org profile] xyphe - Max, Furiosa, teen. The first ones show up three months after. Furiosa came to realize Max wasn't sending them their way just to be safe, to be helped, but also so they could help her, help her people. This was gorgeous. Rich and awful with that delicious blend of hope and fatalism.

Mad Max: Fury Road: Max of the Blue Place by [archiveofourown.org profile] palimpsestus - Furiosa/Max, ensemble, teen. These are the things men do. They steal and they hurt and they kill the world. But they love and they cry and they kiss their babies too. These are the things men do. Ah, god this whole series was fantastic. The world the author expanded on, the difficulties they all have in just being and surviving and finding their way, but building something stronger and better in the aftermath of Joe, not to mention figuring out how to be free and how to love... superb. I really enjoyed the read.

Once Upon a Time: Home Before Midnight by [archiveofourown.org profile] Fyre - Rumplestiltskin/Belle, teen. I actually started reading this because I apparently can't read and thought it was Rumple/Emma, imagine my disappointment, but it was so very good that I kept on reading. It ended up being so much more sensible than how the show went and a hugely satisfying read with great attention to all the characters. So I highly recommend it!

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Last of the Great Navigators by [archiveofourown.org profile] xzombiexkittenx - Jack Sparrow/Will Turner, explicit. Autumn is a season, an age, a state of mind, and Jack is starting to feel the cold. Fifteen years after Jack falls off Fort Royal and our heroes are not quite as young as they used to be. Just... lovely. Growing older and mellowing but still being dastardly pirates.

Suits: You'd Look Good On Me and the sequel You've Got Me Now (Under Your Thumb) by veritas_st - Harvey/Mike, NC-17. Harvey is Harvey and Mike is a tailor working for Rene. And it's really schmaltzy and just lovely.

I am rewatching season one and two of Hannibal in preparation for watching the final season, which is something I basically never ever do. I'm enjoying it just as much this time as the first time, although missing a little something in the shock-horror of the reveals and revelling a little more in the humour and all the wonderful foreshadowing and backshadowing. Also having relatively recently discovered authors who made the Will/Hannibal fic work for me (no mean feat, but now I am really sold on it after a lonnnng period of going, ew, no but he's going to eat his FACE) it makes the already obvious subtext really sing. Like, REALLY sing. Will is so PRETTY but he looks so fucking worn down by the time season two rolls around, and Hannibal looks so WARY but so fucking LOST in what's happening because he's so fucking into Will, no matter how long and how precisely he's been in control of everything else up until that point, because the whole point of everything, in his book, is just seeing what's going to happen when crazy shit happens and rolling with it, and Will Graham is the one thing he can never accurately predict.

The fucking imagery, the language, the threads of images/ideas/music/even the fucking sounds, the dogs, the way Will and Hannibal interact, when they get so close to one another, then are ripped apart, then are so DRAWN to one another despite how they know it's basically mutually self-ensured destruction, i.e. everybody go boom but augh how they all totally know that and are going to do it despite all evidence/signs/cosmic events to the contrary.

Every single character ever. There's just no one boring in there. They're all either evil fuckers or funny as hell while being smart and getting shit done or so straight-laced and tightly wound you know there are a MILLION BILLION AWFUL THINGS going on just under the surface.

The way they never forget how things affect the characters, how if they lose someone or kill someone or fuck up, that shit stays with them. The way they love and hate with equal measure, the way Hannibal is TOTALLY FASCINATED by every little thing that comprises Will Graham... It's so fucking intimate, so fucking satisfying, so fucking intriguing.

How Will can look like a crazy motherfucker, like a little boy lost, like a poet's wet dream, like a competent almost-FBI agent, like a sexy bitch, like a fucking MAN amongst lesser men, like jesus-fuck a mixed up puppy, like ALL OF THE ABOVE ALL AT ONCE YOU BASTARD IT AIN'T POSSIBLE BUT YOU ONLY HAVE EYES FOR HANNIBAL EVEN THOUGH YOU HATE HIM AND YOU LOVE HIM AND HE COMPLETES YOU AND YOU WANT TO DESTROY HIM BUT IT ALL MAKES PERFECT SENSE AND YOU'RE KILLING ME RIGHT NOW.


The way they can still team up to solve crimes and Will can still turn his back to Hannibal while deep in thought and put his butt on Hannibal's desk while Hannibal's behind it, and Will is completely exposed, and they discuss things and he forgets himself for a moment and they're right there in the zone, doing what they do, and together, they solve crime!

This is really a spectacular show, one of maybe, what? Four that I've ever watched more than once in my entire life. I'm going to be so sad to see it go, but I'm so very sure it's going to go out with a bang... I had to stop typing there for a second to make wiggly fingers/grabby hands because HANNIBAL OH MY FUCK YOU GLORIOUS BASTARD.

Um, is that spoilery? I can't tell. I've been drinking my flavoured rum (AMAZEBALLS) and have nothing to do because I'm taking a flight tomorrow. Wish me luck/blue skies/happy sailing whatever typo typo typo adfkasdfj ...

I laughed, I cried (with laughter), I cheered, I laughed some more. There may have been a little drooling, too. For, I think, only the second time ever in a cinema I applauded at the end of the film. The whole audience was with me. It is seriously such a delight and doesn't take itself anywhere near as seriously as the first one.

The convenience store scene is spectacular. The drinking wine with the houseful of ladies is spectacular. The way it just RAINED dollar bills on them at all times was spectacular. The bromances were spectacular. The way they threw themselves into their one last great performance was spectacular.

Okay. I'm going over here now, but I go with a smile on my face and I go to find the soundtrack...

I just went to see Terminator Genisys. While I had FEELINGS about it in an omg all those lives never lived kind of a way, like when I saw the Star Trek reboot, but was really okay with it because that's what they DO (wibbly wobbly timey wimey), and though there were OMG so very, very, very, very many plotholes and huge whonking great dollops of cheese, and no Terminator movie should ever be a 12, ever... I really, really liked it. I mean, I really, really liked it. Good old Arnie. Good old catchphrases. Good old Terminator movies. You have been mightily fucked with over the years, but when you get right down to it, it's about life, love, liberty and great big fuck off robots with bad attitudes from the future who can't be bargained with, can't be reasoned with, don't feel pity, or remorse, or fear. And who absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead. And I'm fine with that. Five stars. Highly recommend. And sure the poking holes in it afterwards is half the fun.

Very upset that Bill Paxton did not get a cameo.

Did you cry at The Green Mile?

Did you cry at Fried Green Tomatoes in the Whistlestop Cafe?

Did you cry at Oz when Cyril O'Reilly was executed?

Did you cry at When the Wind Blows because nobody told you that it was a cartoon that was actually about two lovely little old people keepin' on keepin' on in a friggin' NUCLEAR HOLOCAUST?

Did you cry at Up?

Did you cry at Toy Story 3?

Did you cry at Doctor Who when your doctor died?

Did you cry at Sister Act 2?

Did you cry at any of the Rocky movies?

Did you cry at the end of Terminator 2?

And in other news... I am watching Fifty Shades of Grey. I'm not crying at it, but it is SO DUMB. So very very DUMB. So very like Twilight in the sense that there's so very little tension. And I'm thinking they cut out 99% of the dialogue from the book (which I never read but did flick through), but the 1% they left in is really making it zing. And... it just ENDED. Right in the middle of a montage in the rain. Jesus Christ, neon sign pointing to SEQUEL. Mutter mutter.

Hannibal: Ladders by [archiveofourown.org profile] emungere - Will/Hannibal, explicit. Will is slowly losing his mind in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane. He makes a deal with the devil to get out. Amazing. Their conversations blew my mind. The author captured them perfectly. Very intelligent and in character.

Hannibal: Imago by [archiveofourown.org profile] emungere - Will/Hannibal, explicit. Hannibal shaving Will's stubble with a straight razor. Holy moley.

Hannibal: down the rabbit hole by [archiveofourown.org profile] amare - Will/Hannibal, teen to explicit. The Will Graham we know wakes up in a universe where he and Hannibal are dating. A long and thoughtful read, the whole series was wonderful. Rich and detailed.

Almost Human: An Offer in the Form by [archiveofourown.org profile] charlottechill - John/Dorian, teen. John Kennex has a new partner who's far from perfect but not so far from human... maybe more human than the people around him. What the hell is he supposed to do with that? Really brilliantly done. One of the best and most realistic looks at John's thought processes that I've seen. Fascinating stuff.

Avengers: Out of the Depths by [archiveofourown.org profile] feelslikefire - Bruce/Loki, explicit. Still in hiding from the American government and having been forced to leave Calcutta, Bruce Banner finds an angry, injured Loki in an alley in a shady part of Bangkok. omg FASCINATING. I love love love the interaction between Loki and Hulk. Believable and totally a thing that NEEDS TO HAPPEN.

Captain America: Mission Parameters by [archiveofourown.org profile] what_alchemy - Steve & Bucky and Steve/Bucky, but it's gen, because omg. The soldier does not find the Mission. The soldier finds a tow-headed white child, aged approximately five years, unconscious and naked amid the empty Captain America uniform lying charred and bloody in the middle of what used to be a battleground. The soldier lifts the child up and slings it under one arm before running. How so broken and hurting and so goddamn cute in one fell swoop? Loved this. Beautifully put together. All the things said and unsaid. Ugh, just go and read it.

Captain America: To Live It Again Is Past All Endeavor by [archiveofourown.org profile] trinityofone - Bucky/Steve, teen. Time travel bodyswap! Present-day Steve and Bucky wake up back in their old bodies in 1938, while past Steve and Bucky wake in a future where they're both built like comic book heroes and Bucky's got what he thinks is a swell future robot arm. Fabulous. I loved the contrast between the past and present Steve & Bucky while still keeping them real and in character.

Captain America: When in Sparta by [archiveofourown.org profile] Ark - Steve/Bucky, explicit. Pre-serum Steve and Bucky fool around, and it's kinda filthy, very hot, and very them.

Jupiter Ascending: out of the woods by [archiveofourown.org profile] encroix - Jupiter Jones/Caine Wise, explicit. A girl wanders into the woods, and is led off the path by a wolf who devours her. The author gives them a fairy story and lets them find their balance. This was gorgeous.

Jupiter Ascending: all that is earth by [archiveofourown.org profile] novembersmith - Jupiter Jones/Caine Wise, explicit. Jupiter’s trying not to take it personally, but being inexplicably flinched away from is getting really, really old. So hot and then so adorable. Space dorks in love.

Jupiter Ascending: Thousand Miles by [archiveofourown.org profile] gallifreyburning - Jupiter Jones/Caine Wise, explicit. It's no small step, leaping off the top of the Willis Tower wearing gravity boots. This is the story of how Jupiter gets there. Amazing, amazing, amazing. Their (huge) world and the characters are captured so well. This is a continuation I'd love to see. Easily the best JA fic I've read.

The Fast and the Furious: Life Sentence by [archiveofourown.org profile] astolat - Brian/Dom, explicit. Where Dom goes back to Lompoc for life, but takes an out: volunteering to be bonded to a cop.

Ficart: Star Trek TOS: Somnalence by elfqueen55 - Kirk/Spock, PG. Lovely quiet moment.

Is anyone familiar with electric toilets?

I've just had my electric toilet (or macerator or pressure assist or power lite or whatever the hell they want to call an electric toilet) replaced by the landlady. She wants me to pay half and I really don't want to as that's €200 down the drain, ahahah, so I'm trying to find out if me cleaning it with vinegar was really the problem and it's been really difficult getting an answer on this online.

I see that there are commercial phosphoric acid cleaners specially for these kinds of toilets, and I want to know if me using common old white vinegar could really have screwed up the macerator or not. Is there some magical difference between acetic and phosphoric (which seems to be the stronger of the two)? I kind of feel like I'm getting taken for a ride (the toilet was I don't know how many years old when I moved in, and I have no faith in previous tenants as I recently had a problem with the sink and found an old razor head and a huge dangly earring in there, yuuuck) so I want to get a clear answer on whether it was my fault or not.

I've been working really hard to put money away all year, and I bloody well earned it, so to have a chunk taken away like this is... irksome. The model I have now is a Sani compact 43 to give you an idea.

Stoopid electric toilet. AND I was without a toilet for anything other than pee-pee for nearly a week! That was so much fun I can't even tell you. Far, far too much of my year has revolved around pee-pee and ca-ca. Stoopid little kids in stoopid school with their stoopid peeing everywhere thing. Harrumph.

+ I think I must have pissed off the Fandom Gods. Never have I had such a poor reception for a fic, or at least not in the last decade or so. My poor little Bill & Ted fic. No one wants to hear of your 1980s pre-time-travel teenage kissy-face adventures. Boo.

+ Outlander is back! Yayyyyy! Ridiculous show, how I have missed you! Now please be a bit less rapey and let Claire refind those kung fu skills she learned during the war to kick Black Jack in the nuts so hard her husband feels it in the 50s. That would be swell.

+ My dog woke me up this morning, two hours before the alarm, to barf on my bed and his bed in one fell swoop. This is not the first time he's managed to barf on two beds at once. Never can it be on the easily wipeable floor, not he. His barf is special and needs a gilded cushion when it comes to rest. Now he is curled up asleep while I get to do laundry instead of drinking tea all morning. Bah. Dogs, who'd have 'em?

Who is writing me the exhausted and tense post-finale truce of Flint and Vane where they share space and a bottle of rum on the stolen Spanish Man O' War, resting up and figuring out where to go next, and it's all, "I'm not saying thank you or anything but I hate you a tad less than usual today," and "if we could figure out how to work together we'd be a force to be reckoned with," and "I still hate your face but I'm feeling all conflicted about it somewhere down deep inside I won't admit to," and "I'm no stranger to threesomes or man-loving," and, "I can't sleep even with the gentle rocking of my beautiful stolen ship, whatever will I do to pass the time?" and ALL THAT UNTIL THEY JUMP EACH OTHER'S BONES AND HAVE NOT QUITE HATE SEX then get all blustery and not able to look each other in the eye afterwards as they have lost the ability to trust or to love with an open heart but they YEARN and they want to try but it has to be a SECRET from their crews and they keep on having fisticuffs and TENSE ALLIANCES in public then behind closed doors it's all desperate making out biting each other's shoulders and hipbones (just seems like a thing they'd do) and hands in each other's tight leather britches.

Hmm? Who's writing THAT?

Avengers: Unknown-verse by [archiveofourown.org profile] arsenicarcher - Maria Hill/Steve Rogers/Natasha Romanov, mature. Natasha doesn't like Maria the first time she meets her. Then things get more complicated. I love how the author set this story up with the slow burning and complex relationship between the girls, then the perfect way Steve just seems to complement them. There's lots going on beneath the surface but some of it gets to come to light. A very nice balance.

Avengers: Blinding by [archiveofourown.org profile] Skoll - Tony/Loki, mature. A Bonnie and Clyde inspired AU, where Loki's attempt to control Tony's mind in Stark Tower works, and Tony, genius that he is, has a better plan than just trying to take over Earth. This was fabulous. I loved the insane amount of world-building and all the lovely details. I loved the way Tony found a new version of himself, and how he even dealt with losing his free will in a typically Tony fashion. It was really damn clever and a believable way to make the many unbelievable things happen. I loved how he saw Loki and the way Loki slowly let himself fall. One of those lovely stories where the action is just as important as the unfolding love story. HOWEVER, and this certainly won't be an issue for everyone, the author wrote the story out of order. It can be read that way, but I chose to search for each chapter number and read in order as I tried it out of order and it wasn't working for me. So if you can read as written or are prepared to do a little search for every new chapter, off you go. I think it's worth it.

X-Men: First Class: The Winter of Banked Fires by [archiveofourown.org profile] Yahtzee - Erik Lehnsherr/Charles Xavier, Logan (X-Men)/Rogue, Hank McCoy/Mystique, explicit. Charles Xavier has returned from the dead -- but is lost within his own mind. Rogue has cast aside her own power and doesn't know where she fits in the world any longer. The production of synthetic Cure means mutantkind itself is newly at risk. And Magneto, turned human against his will, is in despair until the day he feels a familiar consciousness tugging at his own... Set after X-3 (with much desperate fix-it applied), during XMFC, and every time in between. Homg. I'd been meaning to read this forever and I was so glad I finally got around to it. Wonderful fic by yahtzee as always. I love how she wove together all those characters, all their stories, gave them myriad trials and tribulations, and yet let them come out the other side, wiser and happier for it. I really enjoyed the read and the fix-it. Bravo.

X-Men: First Class: another gorgeous thing that should not have happened by postcardmystery and gyzym - Charles/Erik, Logan/Scott, explicit. A zombie apocalypse, still-powered AU that is bleak and dark and fabulous.

The Losers: Let Me Show You, Baby, I'm a Talented Boy by [dreamwidth.org profile] innie_darling - Cougar/Jensen, R. Really lovely. I think innie-darling has a real handle on the characters, and I could read about them hanging out and Jensen pining and how beautiful Cougar is in the sunlight for aaaages.

Almost Human: Activation Protocol Delta Six by [archiveofourown.org profile] starandrea - John, Dorian, teen. Two decades after the breach was closed, the legacy of the Kaiju is a coastal culture of lawlessness and contamination. The legacy of the Jaegers is the era of Independent Technology: robots that can function on their own, without the drift to control them. A short fic that opens the door to what could be an EPIC universe, and one I would happily read about for a very long time. It suited the characters perfectly.
