At the Ready by [archiveofourown.org profile] atrata
She could tell Dameron to light himself on fire and he'd say absolutely, General, happy to help! Of course she tried not to, but if he kept insisting on volunteering for missions without bothering to find out the parameters first, well. Maybe he deserved what he got. Poe would do anything for the General. This is hilariously perfect.

can't take the sky from me by [archiveofourown.org profile] celeste9
Your father and I couldn't sit by and do nothing, Poe's mother had told him all those years ago. Couldn't sit by and do nothing. People said that Poe was brave, that he was a good man, but all he was doing was trying to be the man his mother would have wanted him to be, a man she could be proud of. She had loved him so much that she risked everything to make the galaxy he would grow up in a safer place. Not only for him, but for all the children who had yet to be born. He loved her enough to honor her memory. Poe and his mom and flying. Have tissues handy.

put her roots down by [archiveofourown.org profile] celeste9
Really lovely story of Rey finding her way with the Resistance, with her family, and with Poe.

Reprise by [archiveofourown.org profile] Elfpen
Two long, involving stories where Obi-Wan goes back in time at the moment of his death to nine years before the events of TPM; he makes his peace with Qui-Gon, mentors his younger self, and manages to start changing the timeline, hopefully for the better. And it gives excellent Obi-Wan in twice the usual amount! (The series is incomplete - the author says there'll be a third story - but the two extant stories are complete and there's no real cliffhanger at the end.)

Sith All Your Tempests Cannot Hold Me Back by [archiveofourown.org profile] akathecentimetre
Really lovely modern AU where Satine is the British Ambassador to the US, Obi-Wan is a war correspondent and also they are in a relationship with Bail Organa; I admit to being skeptical of that going in, but the whole thing works really well. (also, ♥AHSOKA♥)

A Sprig of Hope by [archiveofourown.org profile] Vera_DragonMuse
"You don't have to," Poe would protest.

"I can feed myself," Rey would insist.

Finn only rolled his eyes and got on with it. He didn't tell them about growing up eating the same routine meals, how the others would smuggle each other the best items as tokens of affection. He didn't tell them that bread became a language of love.
Rey and Finn take up gardening, much to the delight of the Resistance. Oh heart.

They were at Mos Bina (Come and see) by [archiveofourown.org profile] TwinEnigma
Fascinating AU where Alderaan is destroyed earlier and Leia ends up a slave on Tatooine and Luke uses local mythology (and Obi-Wan, fitting well into the role of (unwitting in this case) trickster) to free her, and lead the slaves in an uprising.

All Hail the New Kids by [archiveofourown.org profile] dsudis
"I can tell you what Finn told me about what he's used to, why he needs to do things this way."

Rey shook her head. "I understand, I think. First Order couldn't let Stormtroopers be distracted or suborned by desire, so they trained them to separate sex from affection. You're trying to ease Finn into connecting them again."

Poe blinked at that neat summation, which made all his floundering in the last two days seem like a sensible plan. He nodded.

"I want to help. I want--" Her shoulders jerked. "I want to be with Finn, I want to be--I want to not be alone."

Poe nodded, preparing to assure her that she could take her time, or that it was totally normal to be disappointed that her sex life with their mutual boyfriend was going to be decidedly nonstandard for a while.

Before he could say any of that, Rey went on, "I just don't know how."
Poe, Finn, and Rey work out how to be together in a way that works for all of them.

"Why are they always here?" she demanded. She stomped to the basket, tossing in the clothes she'd collected. "They don't actually live here. Emmeline is staying with us because she doesn't want to be alone right now." She began to make the bed, yanking up the sheets. "They aren't alone. They don't need to be at my house every fucking day! They don't need to be a part of my marriage! I'm married to you! I'm not married to them!"

He hesitated.

"James!"

"I mean, you're a little married to them!"

"Well, I'm not having a baby with them!" she yelled. "I'm having a baby with you!" She stared at him, panting. "I'm having a baby, James." She sank onto the edge of the bed. "I'm having a baby. I'm twenty years old, and fighting in a war, and I'm having a baby."

He sat beside her.

"What are we going to do?" she asked, deflated.

It Was Only a Change of Plan by [personal profile] sholio
It's mainly that she never expected to live this long. She has a contingency plan for everything except, as it turns out, surviving past her twenties.

And it keeps surprising her, the way that aging catches her off guard in small ways. It's not the big things -- those she expects, can prepare for. But she never anticipated how differently she'd think about things at thirty than at twenty; she never understood how a lifetime builds up, in ways that can't be undone. Everything she's done, every person she's loved or lost leaves a trace like scar tissue. It drags at her like half-welcome, half-unwanted luggage that she has to carry around with her everywhere, making it harder than it used to be to slip in and out of her many chameleon skins. Habits and likes and dislikes, old friends and old enemies weigh her down.

She and Finn are still really just learning how to be people who know how to be around people, and maybe that’s part of what makes it work. The fact that they have each other to ask questions, and try to sort it all out together. And maybe neither of them would even be offended if Poe found them just a little bit ridiculous. Like when they make it their mission to try and rank every single dessert served in the mess, or when Rey grabs Poe’s helmet in the middle of a conversation and pulls it on without comment, only to grin manically at him. Or the way that Finn has to sometimes consciously stop himself in the middle of a sentence, when he’s about to remind them about the rules.

But the best part is that Poe never does find them ridiculous, and even makes a point of indulging them whenever possible.

But he was on his feet faster than she knew, even off his game like this, so that when he caught a hold of her and called her Natalia in that tender urgent voice she wasn't ready, wasn't ready at all. She could love Bucky Barnes if she let herself. She was halfway there already. She'd never really stopped loving the Soldier. It hadn't exactly been the sort of situation where you got closure and moved on like normal people; maybe in a few more years, or if he'd never come back. The jet was spinning, and he was so warm behind her, and it hurt, everything hurt all the damn time, like a muscle she could never relax, and she didn't know how to make it stop. Achingly lovely Bucky/Natasha.

Steve and Bucky, finding equilibrium. Also, seriously hot metal arm porn.

Bucky poses for a (tastefully) nude calendar to raise money for a veterans' organization. Steve is pleased with the results.

Churro is a good name by [archiveofourown.org profile] zombieboyband
"I like all dogs. I'm a dog guy."

"I like dogs, too. And cats. Both."

Frank shrugs at this. "Can't trust people that don't."

"Can't trust people just because they do, either."

"Can't trust most people."

'But you can trust most dogs," Karen says, not hiding her small smile for him this time.
If you, like me, were worried about the dog, this story gives him a happy ending.

Goodbye Highway by [archiveofourown.org profile] Zee
Long, slow post-canon story where the kids find Glendower but Ronan loses his memory, and neither he nor Adam deals all that well with it. Lovely and wistful.

"You're not hugging me because I'm dead in the future, are you?" she asked.

"Ma! No, you're fine. I just saw you last week and I come home for holidays."

"You invited me last Christmas," Bruce added helpfully.

"Is that what you wore?"

"Yes," he said, and she didn't think she believed him. "But with a sweater over it."
Martha Kent protects her son from time travelers. Excellent.

Brighter Than the Moon by [archiveofourown.org profile] Pinkerton
He keeps thinking of Bitty as the plane taxis and takes off. He's spent the past two months sorting through pieces of Bitty, connecting the dots and filling in blanks. It's a familiar exercise: stats to player performance, tempered by the variables of the ice and game play. Primary to secondary sources, altered by time and perspective.

And then there's Bitty. Teammate to friend to boyfriend. A man whose hospitality and ability to be a total little shit both know no bounds; a talented hockey player whose soft hands work magic with dough; and a solid, comforting weight in Jack's heart that, only two months in, seems unlikely to be dislodged.
Lovely story set during Jack's 4th of July visit to Bitty's.

Some excellent backstory for George.

"Shitty totally wants to bone Jane Austen," Ransom says as a matter of fact.

"Dude, who doesn't? Bits excluded, I guess."

"The studio audience needs to shut the fuck up, and Jane Austen is my soul mate stay away from her, brah."
Hilarious and adorable Jack/Bitty, featuring Jeopardrink.

5 Times Anakin's Ghost Gave Unsolicited Parenting Advice by [archiveofourown.org profile] Callioope
Luke finally turned to look at his father's ghost. Despite everything, Luke noted with some amusement that his father still preferred to appear as his twenty-three-year old self. Even ten years ago, it had felt strange seeing his father this way; now it was downright ridiculous. To see them sitting together, one might have thought Luke the father and Anakin the son.

"I would prefer to be remembered this way," Anakin said, reading Luke's thoughts. "As your mother saw me."

"Mother." Luke sighed and looked back to the horizon, at the trailing orange-red glow of the set sun. "What would she have done?"

"Oh, something brilliant, probably," Anakin said, smiling. "Something well beyond the likes of us."
Exactly what the title says: Luke and Anakin's ghost watching over Rey through the years.

Dirt in the Machine by [archiveofourown.org profile] bedlamsbard
AU where Obi-Wan is a lady; she and Anakin get captured by Dooku and have to try to figure out what he wants with them while also trying to escape/get rescured. A good read. (Ugh, bring me all the lady!Obi-Wan fic; it scratches an itch I didn't even know I had.)

Really lovely (if heartbreaking, because canon) look at Ahsoka and Anakin's relationship from Obi-Wan's POV.

Really lovely look at Rey deciding what to do with her hair after she joins the Resistance.

Unfold Your Own Myth by [archiveofourown.org profile] Thistlerose
While Rey sips her tea, Leia stands behind her and combs the knots out of her hair. Her hands are cool and gentle and if, from time to time, they seem to shake, Rey doesn't say anything. It should feel strange, being fussed over by this woman she barely knows, but there's a connection between them that's deeper than grief, deeper than the need for amends. Rey senses it, but she's too tired, too overwhelmed to think about it now. All she can think is, This must be what it's like to be someone's daughter. This must be what it's like to feel safe. ♥REY♥ Lovely.

The story of how Captain America gets his shield back at the end of CATWS. *sobs* Oh my heart. This is an absolutely adorable outsider POV.

world looking in by [archiveofourown.org profile] irnan
They didn't sit next to each other in meetings; they rarely left the building together, and Natasha never, ever called him James in public; usually he called her Romanov, sometimes Nat, the same way Steve did. They worked together as flawlessly as they always had, but she was fairly sure that most of their friends thought they didn't much like each other. Only she caught Steve frowning sometimes, when something happened where they could or should have brought up their relationship, or at least relaxed a little.

She couldn't. James couldn't. It was fine to touch and kiss and hold hands when the people around them were perfect strangers, or when they could play a role of a kind, but as soon as it was all a sea of familiar faces and cameras in strategic positions she froze up into a kind of panic mode
. Bucky and Natasha move in together, but don't tell anyone they're a couple. Oh my heart.
