Amelia Peabody

Extending the Burden of Duty by [archiveofourown.org profile] Bodldops
Sethos extends his rescue services to other members of the family. Gets the voices just right. (there is some tense slippage in places.)

Yet I Resemble Him by [archiveofourown.org profile] Synergic
Pitch-perfect epilogue to "Crocodile on the Sandbank," showing how Peabody and Emerson went about getting engaged. Hilarious and sweet.

Poker night with the Nine-Nine! Hilarity ensues! *g*

The Dark Tower

Bird and Bear and Hare and Fish by [archiveofourown.org profile] scioscribe
Beautifully evocative of both character and world, everything about this story feels like it could slide seamlessly into canon.

The Devil Wears Prada

We Arrive in the Dark by [archiveofourown.org profile] jibrailis
Sharp, unsentimental and in-character Miranda/Andy.

Discworld

Gytha and Esme's Ill-Advised Adventure by [archiveofourown.org profile] Elemental

The Minnow and the Dragon by [archiveofourown.org profile] raspberryhunter
Vetch and Yarrow have a brief yet amazing adventure. This was so wonderful.

Ghostbusters

A Revolution's Revelation by [archiveofourown.org profile] sheafrotherdon
They've learned over the last year and some to give Patty the lead when there's some sort of historical grudge at play. Your everyday jealousies, revenge killings, souls with unfinished business, and random demons they're all good at dealing with, but there's something about the long-gone that only Patty can handle. ♥PATTY♥

The Golem and the Jinni

The Greatest City in the World by [archiveofourown.org profile] Isis
Lovely look at Chava and Ahmed over the years, after the end of the book.

The Island Is Ours by [archiveofourown.org profile] jaegermighty
Ravi quietly pines for Liv and plans for the future. Oh Ravi. He is the best, no lie.

Now Draw Me Close by [archiveofourown.org profile] lady_ragnell
Five ways Liv Moore and Ravi Chakrabarti could have met and one way they met for a second time. Liv and Ravi have great chemistry and end up together in all sorts of alternate universes. Delightful!

Life

Riding in Cars With Boys by [archiveofourown.org profile] aj2245
Five Times Dani and Charlie get stuck in traffic (and one time it's clear roads). This story really gets their partnership in both the funny and heartfelt moments.

Miss Marple

The Spirit of St Mary Mead by [archiveofourown.org profile] lost_spook
In which Miss Marple is an avatar of Nemesis, and the genius loci of St. Mary Mead. So clever!

Push

Eating a Peach by [archiveofourown.org profile] innie
Ridiculously hot Nick/Cassie.

Rivers of London

Posh by [archiveofourown.org profile] maple_clef
A smooth, polished floor is an invitation for kids - of all ages. Guleed reflects on poshness and makes friends whilst waiting for her colleagues. Yay Guleed!

Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries

Therefore is Winged Cupid Painted Blind by [archiveofourown.org profile] whetherwoman
Phryne is roofied and Jack talks her through it, and then they have to deal with the awkward aftermath. Nicely done.

To Begin With by [archiveofourown.org profile] riverlight
Jack helps Phryne out with her period cramps. Quiet and clever and suffused with tenderness. Lovely!

What Brings Us Together by [archiveofourown.org profile] often_adamanta
Really lovely look at Phryne and her relationships.

Ocean's Eleven

The High Life by [archiveofourown.org profile] Destina
"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

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. ♥

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.

objects in the mirror by [archiveofourown.org profile] Snickfic
Jonathan has no fucking idea why Nancy and Steve gave him the Nikon. He doesn't know why they're so insistent on seeing the pictures he takes, either. Lovely.

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.
