Star Wars

Across the Universe by [archiveofourown.org profile] celeste9
In the midst of her training, Luke takes Rey to several planets and shows her something of the galaxy (and his past). Lovely.

and if I were you, I would never let me go by [archiveofourown.org profile] Lizzen
He knows about Organa's daughter, of course. Princess, senator, now a confirmed traitor; famed for her ethical code and her wit. Some even remark that she is beautiful.

Now he knows that she is brave enough to face him unflinching with lies in her mouth.

The Force hums loudly as he considers that there is something impressive about her, and that it burns to know she will break under him – everyone does, after all.
Vader considers Leia during their various encounters. *high pitched squeeing noises*

been living a lonely life by [archiveofourown.org profile] celeste9
Finn thinks if all three of them ever got to be in the same space together at the same time, they might have something. Adorably matter-of-fact Finn/Rey/Poe.

Bodhi's Stars by [archiveofourown.org profile] Vera_DragonMuse
"I believe in that," he gestured to it all. "That it will all still be here. Forever."

"The light of those stars may already be dead," Galen turned to him, hooded eyes burning cold. "What about civilizations? What about all of us? What will the Empire make of us?"

He sucked in a breath, the factory crumbled and a faceless entity never even apologized. Three thousands souls that breathed in and never breathed out again with no more fanfare than a tiny broken piston.

"I don't know," he said again, but this time he met Galen's eyes. "But I don't want to help make it happen anymore."
Tender, heartbreaking look at Bodhi.

The Borderlines We Drew Between Us by [archiveofourown.org profile] celeste9
Poe pines obliviously until Finn and Rey finally clue him in. Lovely.

Death in the Time of the Empire by [archiveofourown.org profile] Deputychairman
He tried not to dwell on it later, but a man has to look his own choices in the eye. You can't pretend when you take a life, especially not to yourself. Sharp, heartbreaking look at Cassian Andor.

Each Is But One by [archiveofourown.org profile] Medie
Everyone lives AU where Chirrut and Baze are rescued by secret Jedi. Very cute.

Lovely look at Wedge Antilles.

Faces by [archiveofourown.org profile] stereobone
"Do you feel it?" Chirrut asks.

The softness of his voice makes Baze shudder. He thinks that maybe he does, or maybe he wants to, for Chirrut. When Baze opens his eyes, Chirrut is very close to him. It doesn't surprise him at all when Chirrut kisses him. Baze's eyes flutter closed again, then open when Chirrut pulls away.

"Was that the Force?" Baze asks. His voice comes out cracked and heavy.

"That was me," Chirrut says, and kisses him again.
Melacholy, heartbreaking Baze/Chirrut, from Baze's POV.

the fine line between recruiting and kidnapping by [archiveofourown.org profile] Gunmetal_Crown
Reprogramming, making new friends, and committing high treason--K-2SO has had a strange day. Perfect little snippet about Kaytoo's reprogramming.

firefly by [archiveofourown.org profile] peradi
(Can droids die he had said to Poe and Poe had said well I suppose everything can die and BB-8 had said but what happens when -- and Pilot-Pava had said what a curious droid and BB-8 buzzed at her Poe reprogrammed me and taught me to think and and Poe's gentle hand on his shell, and droids aren't meant to be calmed by physical contact and yet -- ) *sobs* So many droid feels.

Grant Me This by [archiveofourown.org profile] predilection
AU in which Leia is undercover as an Imperial officer, and Han is her Alliance contact. Lovely.

Sweet, lovely Finn/Rey/Poe.

The Last Poem of Jedha by [archiveofourown.org profile] schweinsty
Really beautiful story about Bodhi Rook and love and grief.

Leia Organa: A Critical Obituary – you're always being judged by Malcolm Sheppard
Leia Organa, the politician and revolutionary who led the defeat of the Galactic Empire, died after a short illness. She was 60 years old. Hers was a life laced with controversy concerning everything from her tactics to her very ancestry, but her intelligence, commitment to the Republican cause, and place at the heart of the Rebellion, and later the Resistance against Neo-Imperialism, remains the indisputable core of her legacy.

They Have Taken Photographs of Our Footprints in the Dust by [archiveofourown.org profile] dharmaavocado
"Hush," Chirrut murmured against his mouth.

"I am not the one talking."

"I can hear your thoughts." Chirrut's fingers slipped beneath his collar. "Be here with me."

"When have I ever been anywhere else?" Baze asked, and kissed the answer from Chirrut's mouth.
Chirrut likes to tell stories about how he and Baze got married. *sobs*

you are my single silence by [archiveofourown.org profile] amillionsmiles
"You can cut a man's legs from under him. That does not mean he kneels," contemplates Chirrut.

"Save your wisdom for a book," replies Baze.

"That's why I'm telling you. Write this down," Chirrut says imperiously, and Baze chuckles, a dry, comforting rasp in his ears.

Faith, Chirrut thinks, is a bit like sand. In small handfuls, it seems barely anything—but gather enough of it, and you could build yourself a beach, an island. A place to stand.
*sobs*

The Thin Man

the thin man's bride by [archiveofourown.org profile] betony
"Oh, no, I never drink before noon. I expect I haven't your...robust constitution."

"Nonsense," said Nick, handing him a glass of whiskey anyhow. "All you need is an amendment or two and that'll sort it right out. Here. Now, what brings you here to see Nora?"
Witty, fun case fic where Nora has to sort out a blackmailer. I enjoyed this a lot.

A Year and a Day in Old Theradane

The Library of Hazar by [archiveofourown.org profile] BethWinter
"I’m the Duchess Unseen! I stole the sound of the sunrise and the tears of a shark. I borrowed a book from the library of Hazar and didn’t return it."

So how did that go, exactly?
Wonderfully in tune with both the setting and the characters of the short story.

Stranger Things

count every beautiful thing we can see by [archiveofourown.org profile] hardlygolden
When she comes back the next week, there's a new book waiting for her, and a torch. She mentally congratulates Hopper for balancing sentimentality with practicality. The batteries won't last, not for ever but she uses them to finish the last of the book in the dark.

The note this time says: They miss you too.

Something howls in the distance, and she burrows closer into the tree roots in which she's hiding as she keeps reading about Neverland and Peter, a boy who never wanted to grow up living in a place he never needed to.

The Lost Boys are her favourite.
Eleven and Hopper contrive her way back from the Upside Down. Lovely.

Six of Crows

Her Heart Is a River by [archiveofourown.org profile] angelan
Inej and Kaz have an adventure at sea. I enjoyed this a lot.

ebb and flood by [archiveofourown.org profile] arbitrarily
You climb up, but if you fall, the Barrel will be waiting. The Barrel was there to break you. She had been bound to the ground for three weeks following, nursing a limp that looked like a mummer’s mockery of Kaz’s. She did stretches in her small room, all but climbed the walls. It wasn’t fear that she had felt, being trapped in the Slat, the Barrel, the Dregs (with Kaz), but a restlessness. A hum that settled in her bones, electric and pulsing, that made her fingers and her toes twitch.

This is what she learned, trapped: never let a thing break you here. Never let a thing hold you down and keep you.
Inej returns to Ketterdam. Sharp and melancholy.

Sail Upon the Land by [archiveofourown.org profile] innie
Lovely story in which Inej reunites with the people she loves upon returning to Ketterdeam. ♥

"Maybe we need a break," Rusty said, his voice muffled by the pillow.

"I had one. Eighteen months in the federal pen," Danny answered.

"That's not a break, that's appropriate sanctions." Rusty cracked open an eye and peered at him. "When I wake up, we are getting a map. And then we're taking a drive."

Notes of Oak, Cherry, Boredom and Bullshit by [archiveofourown.org profile] merriman
Danny and Rusty are on vacation. Whatever will they do not to get bored? Oh heart.

thieves at heart by [archiveofourown.org profile] enkiduu
Danny and Rusty. Their names are always said together and Rusty knows that's how it'll always be. They're partners.

Not in the way he wants, and he feels bad for wanting more, wanting what Danny can't give. It doesn't change the way Rusty feels, but the way he feels doesn't change the way things are, either.

Apparently Rusty's not as good at reading Danny as he thought.
Danny and Rusty through the years. <3

The Best Kind of Game by [archiveofourown.org profile] igrockspock
After that, taking care of the General -- he still had a hard time thinking of her as Leia -- got to be a game. The best kind of game, because it was one he could always win. There were a thousand things he couldn’t do in the war: he couldn’t always hit the target, he couldn’t stop pilots dying by the dozens, he couldn’t even get Jessika Pava to stop bending her undercarriage on nighttime landings. But he could almost always find one small thing to make General Organa happy, and that was enough for him. Poe takes care of Leia. Oh heart.

Clark Kent writes a profile of Bruce Wayne.

"Who are these anonymous sources?"

"Hell if I know," Lois huffed. "I've lived in Metropolis most of my life, but Kent blows in from Smallville and suddenly he's friends with every hooker and hobo that might have a quote he can use."

"Huh." Bruce looked over the picture at the head of the article again. "Smallville?"

"I know, right? Smallville, Kansas. It's like he emerged fully-formed out of an apple pie. The fucker." She swept powder aggressively over her cheekbones.

The corner of his mouth curled upward. "Getting ready for war?"

"With Kent?" She snapped her compact shut. "Always."
Absolutely hilarious reworking of Batman and Superman's first meeting via Lois's POV, with great, in-character voices for all three of them but especially Clark. I love this Clark. I literally laughed until I cried at certain parts of this story. Highly recommended.
