Dead End Detour (Wrong Turning Remix) by [archiveofourown.org profile] hereticalvision
Faith finds some peace in prison, and then she learns that Buffy's dead. Achingly lovely. She'd been so caught up in thinking about her own impending death that she hadn't really though about how B's death affected her. Faith had idolised her once, after all. Wanted to be her so bad she'd crawled right up inside her skin. Would have fucked Buffy herself given half a chance and maybe that would have been enough. But knives and boyfriends and anger all got in the way and Faith didn't think about her much these days except for maybe wishing they could've been real friends.

It wasn't Buffy she wanted to be like, not anymore.

Gotham (The Just When You Think You're Out Remix) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Medie
The thing about Gotham City is the part where it's Gotham City. LA made sense; demons downtown, humans uptown, and a whole seedy underbelly that made the whole thing work. Gotham makes some hell dimensions he's seen look downright respectable.

After NFA, Gunn ends up in the Gotham City DA's office. Batman gets turned into an actual bat, despite not believing in magic, and Gunn's assistant may not be human. Just another day at the office, then. I found this hilariously entertaining.

The Belgariad

gratia gratium parit by [archiveofourown.org profile] lalaietha
This is beautiful and heartbreaking and hopeful all at once, and I love the way it adds depth and meaning that was missing in the books, and shows how Relg and Taiba got to where they ended up in a way that makes sense. Really wonderful. "I am guilty of many sins," he says. "Not all of them are that easy to wave away, even for you." The last words are unkind, and he knows it, but Taiba lets them pass.

"I think UL will forgive you," she says. It takes him a moment to recognize this note in her voice as wistfulness. "He loved you enough to tell you to stop before you did anything that couldn't be fixed, after all."

She glanced at Relg, and said, "What?" defensive again.

"I . . .had not thought of it that way," he says, a little helplessly. Taiba sighs.

"No," she says. "You wouldn't."

This Tired World Could Change by [archiveofourown.org profile] ranalore
Original Cindy has always allowed for the possibility that the right guy might tempt her to give bi a shot. It's just that she's pretty sure Alec MacDowell has never immediately leaped to anybody's mind as "the right guy" for anything legal, let alone non-destructive. If what they're doing here can be described as non-destructive. Original Cindy's withholding judgment for now. Really nice, drama-free Original Cindy/Max/Alec threesome. Gets Cindy's voice just right.

"Booth..." she starts and then lets her voice trail off. She stands there for a minute with a tiny little smile on her face and shrugs. "I was wrong."

There's too much space between them. He crosses the room to stand in front of her, staring straight into her eyes. "That doesn't sound like you."

"No," she says, "it's me. I was wrong."

"I'll mark it on the calendar," he says.

Firefly

Unnatural Selection by [livejournal.com profile] mousewitchy
He is something more than human, now. All of his impurities, his human failings have been washed away, purged in the heat of the divine wrath that filled him. A burning fire, the ultimate test of his soul, and it didn’t leave room for anything else.

He is the hand of God. He is here to purify the masses, the same way he was purified himself. He will take their sins and weaknesses in unto himself and leave them nothing but the righteous, cleansing fury that fills him even now. His cup overfloweth.

It is better this way. He is better, now. Gone are the petty human failings that had once defined him; gone are the trifling and troublesome worries that plagued him. He is more now, he is stronger. He is drunk on the glory of his own existence.

He's quiet for a long minute, then whispers, "I'm sorry this didn't work out. I know you wanted us all to have a place."

"Yeah," she says in answer. She wants to say more, about family and home, but she's still not sure Alec really understands what she means by either of those things.
Lovely, quiet moment between Max and Alec as they make the decision to go to ground. Wistful but full of hope, too.

Friday Night Lights

Not Flesh and Blood by [livejournal.com profile] queenofthorns
Eric would rather spend an afternoon getting relationship advice Mac Magill than let the truth out of the deepest, darkest corner of his unspoken thoughts: he loves his boys. All of 'em, jackasses and smartasses, benchwarmers and superstars. He loves them for their occasional moments of sweetness and their constant low-level idiocy; he loves them for the boys they are and for the men they might become. But there are only two of them who've ever made Eric think If I had a son, this is who I'd want him to be. One was Jason Street. The other is hunched over a plate of untouched food, Eric's daughter by his side, politely listening to Buddy Garrity say something or other that's totally out of place. This totally made me bawl my face off at work (much like the episode [spoilers for 4.05 "the Son"]). Fathers and sons, Coach Taylor and Matt Saracen, in the aftermath. *sniffle*

Here's the thing about mornings: when you wake up, you have no idea if it's going to be the last. The last time you look in the mirror as you put on a little makeup, just enough so that you look like you've had more than three hours sleep. The last time you put your badge on your belt, and your gun in the holster in the small of your back. Last time you drink a cup of raw sewage instead of the good coffee from Castle's machine, because you still won't admit that yes, sometimes it's nice to have nice things.

The Friggin' Cure by inzane73
The paradigmatic cure fic - Logan sends Alec on a mission to retrieve the cure. The mission goes sideways, Alec is hurt, and Max realizes she's had a change of heart. Toes the line of Logan-bashing (crosses over it a bit, tbh), but I enjoy it enough to reread it fairly often, despite its flaws (which also include some POV slippage and some epithets).

Hopeless Causes by inzane73
He'd either save Max or die trying. There was no other option. Alec saves Max from certain death in very entertaining fashion. (POV issues)

Culpability by [livejournal.com profile] nickeldime_17
This story hits so many of my bulletproof kinks that I am willing to overlook some of the technical issues (POV slips, epithets) and fanon (mating wtf?) that would normally irritate me. Max and Alec start sleeping together, but then Logan finds a cure for the virus, and Max chooses him instead of Alec, setting up years of angst and regret before she figures out what she really wants, because of course, they can't stay away from each other, either. For all its flaws, this story is excellent at looking at all the ways two people who love each other can inflict the most damage, but they can also find ways to overcome it.

He hated heat, great sex aside, but it fucked up his head. She wasn't ever going to be his, not even with his mark around her barcode. They could play at being in love for Logan, pretend they were together in every way that mattered, but it was just make believe. Heat screwed up the balance of things, made him want. Made him think he could have.

Mixed Signals by [livejournal.com profile] dazedizzy
Six months after Freak Nation, Logan calls Alec out about his behavior, because he thinks Alec and Max are actually a couple, and he's seen Alec leave the bar with other girls. Could use fewer epithets, but nice pining from both Max and Alec, and also it feels in character that they'd be so clueless about each other's feelings.
