"Okay," Paris says, again, gesturing towards her erratically, “Here’s the plan. We need to make good on that admittedly questionable spring break kiss of our youth—that way, people will assume that we’re a lesbian power couple instead of two pathetic rapidly aging losers with no prospects whose freaking hearts go all a-flutter when they see a cute boy.”

“We’re not—anything in that sentence,” Rory says.
This is EXACTLY how the bathroom scene should have gone! <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.

The King of Gotham: An Evening With Bruce Wayne by [archiveofourown.org profile] hapakitsune
Clark Kent writes a profile of Bruce Wayne.

Third Wheel by [archiveofourown.org profile] Unpretty
"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.

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.

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.
