Harry Potter

Geometry of the Impossible by [archiveofourown.org profile] Aria
"Prongs," Remus said, on their way back up to Gryffindor Tower, both he and James carefully carrying a near-overflowing mug of cocoa in each hand, "I -- thank you."

"What for?" James asked, in genuine surprise. They stopped at the bottom of a staircase, waiting patiently for it to swing around to the direction they wanted to go. Remus found that James was looking at him closely. "Remus, you do know we do all these daft things because we love you."

Coming from Lily or Sirius, such a sentiment would have been definitely overwhelming and possibly mortifying. James said it the way he said We're going to win the Cup this year or We've decided to become Animagi, the way he said everything, with cheerful confidence that the world was going to bend around his whim. James Potter here declares that the last week of Remus's life wasn't a fever dream or a favor, but something natural, and Remus's due. Remus blushed fiercely and stared down at the froth of whipped cream in one of the mugs. "That's why I'm thanking you," he managed.
Relationships are complicated, especially when you're a teenager, so it's great that Lily and Sirius are brilliant enough to figure things out. <333

Star Wars

The Best Dressed Lie by [archiveofourown.org profile] igrockspock
No one in the galaxy could be more different from her mother than Han Solo -- but here he was, giving her exactly the same advice. Two people who wanted a child gave her a home. Before they died, the taught her that family didn't have to be defined by blood. Han was right; that was as much as she needed to know. Bail and Breha try to keep Leia's parentage from being discovered. Leia has a hard time with that.

Leia grapples with Anakin Skywalker's legacy. Oh heart.

A Man of Honour by [archiveofourown.org profile] Lotusflower85

"There is nothing," Baze said, "that would induce me to get into that water."

"They are not dangerous," Chirrut told him. "They are beautiful ."

Baze regarded him with a heavy, thoughtful gaze. The sharks swarmed around Chirrut's legs, their bodies seething, elegant shadows under the ripple of clear water. They curved around him, tested the billow of his robes beneath the water with their curious mouths. Chirrut stretched a hand out towards Baze in invitation, his palm upturned, his damp sleeve spilling like ink away from the bare curve of his wrist.

"Beautiful things can be dangerous too," Baze said, for the sake of the sudden pleased curl to Chirrut's sharp mouth.
Lovely alternate ending for Rogue One.

heavy on the heart by [archiveofourown.org profile] evanescent
In which Cass decides to get to know her brother and Jason is reluctantly willing to be known. Oh heart.

Diana comes to Etta with an invitation, after the war is over. Oh heart.

Nests and Cages by [archiveofourown.org profile] LanternWisp & [archiveofourown.org profile] Lysical
Jason slowly works his way through his stuff and back into the family, with emphasis on his relationships with Cass and Steph. ♥♥♥ Hilarious and heart-clenchy. (This is a series with 7 stories currently - while the series is still in progress, 6 of the stories so far are complete.)

she painted her cheeks with blood by [archiveofourown.org profile] lorata
Hippolyta pretends she is nothing but a doting mother now, that the milk of war has soured on her lips. It is a lie of course but she wears it well, even if Antiope sees her lips thin when Diana looks at her puzzled disappointment. Antiope could pretend, she could file down her rough edges, put on a covering of velvet and make herself a soft child's toy, but — no. No, Antiope loves Diana with a fire that only battle has ever matched, but she will not fold herself small, make herself smooth and palatable like cutting off the crusts from a piece of bread or plucking out the bones from a fish so that Diana can swallow her safely.

Her niece will take her as she is, and will not choke, whether Hippolyta likes it or not.
This is beautifully written.

Avengers

And Shadows Will Fall Behind by [archiveofourown.org profile] leveragehunters
AU where Steve is born in the modern era and never becomes Captain America, but Bucky still became the Winter Soldier. They meet and fall in love after Bucky breaks his programming. Lovely.

Better Than To Bend by [archiveofourown.org profile] silentwalrus
Bucky and Peggy come to an arrangement about Steve. Hot and funny.

Lay Your Shoulders to the Wheel by [archiveofourown.org profile] galwednesday
Prequel to "No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Pine" (previously recced), in which Bucky rescues Wanda and Pietro from HYDRA. Aw, Bucky instinctively being a good big brother even with his memories still hazy is so great.

Non-Prophet Organisation by [archiveofourown.org profile] leveragehunters
When a PhD student accidentally uncovers a plot to summon a demon and destroy the world, Captain America is the only one she can get to listen to her. Steve, Sam and Bucky will fly half-way around the globe to investigate, but can they get there in time to stop the ritual and save the world?

(All signs point to yes as an answer to at least one of those questions.)
Hee! This is hilarious. And it also has an equally funny sequel: Herd of Goats?

An Oblique Approach by [archiveofourown.org profile] Gray_Cardinal
"Oh, Tony. Trust me, the very last thing I want to do is go out and shoot fire at things with stupid numbers of people watching. Also, I'm pretty sure 'Human Torch' is trademarked already."

Tony sighed theatrically. "I get it," he said. "But trust me, you don't know what you're missing."
Tony fixes Extremis for Pepper, and it gives her a whole other suite of superpowers. Hee!

this has been a public service announcement by [archiveofourown.org profile] Nokomis
Peter finally gets to hang out with the Avengers after a fight with aliens and lets slip about Cap's PSAs. Hilarity ensues. (this is an apparently ongoing series with 2 complete stories so far.)
