Harry Potter

"I should've been there," said Hermione. "I shouldn't have let that thing get me. I should've been cleverer."

"Cleverer?" Ron scoffed. "Hermione, you get any cleverer and reality would collapse. The sky would fall. Your brains would be too big for you to fit through doors."

Hermione twisted her hands in her lap.

"But seriously," Ron said. "You were there. I mean-- you're the one who figured it out. We wouldn't have been able to do anything without you. And.." He shrugged, looking up at the ceiling. "That's what friends are for, right? We were there, so you were, too. It was all our fight. You know?"
AU where Hermione is the Girl Who Lived. *gross sobbing*

Life

"There are a lot of colors of towel here."

"Yeah, there are. White's pretty standard though."

"But it's boring."

"They're towels." Crews blinked at her. "Please just pick a color."

"You don't have a preference?"

"Besides white?" He glared a little. She sighed, and pointed at the green ones. "Green."

"Sage green," corrected Crews. He closely inspected the sage green towels. "These aren't Egyptian cotton though. Do you want Egyptian cotton? It's nicer, fluffier. I like fluffy towels."

"They're towels," said Dani again. "We're in Target. They're all basically the same thing."

This earned her a disappointed look, but he grabbed a stack of the sage green towels and put them in the cart. When they got to the bedding aisle, she pointedly picked the sage green sheets, with a high thread count even, and Crews beamed at her. He disappeared into another aisle, and came back with throw pillows.

"For the couch," he said.

"You didn't have furniture for like, a year. Now you want throw pillows?" Crews nodded. Dani rolled her eyes, but left the throw pillows in the cart.
Perfect trope executed perfectly. 30k words of Crews and Reese undercover married! Oh my heart! <333

Thor attends a con. Oh heart.

Clint Barton and the Howling Commandogs by [archiveofourown.org profile] galwednesday
Clint rescues some superdogs, and then Bucky shows up to play with them. Adorable.

Sweet Steve/Bucky/Natasha with pining oblivious Steve. <3

It was just—Jack's voice. Southern accent aside, he sounded exactly like Bucky.

At least, Steve thought he did. His inner rational Sam gently suggested it might be wishful thinking. Do you remember his voice well enough to be sure? It had been over seventy years, or nearly five, depending on how you counted, since Steve had properly heard Bucky's voice. His brief interactions with the Winter Soldier didn't count, what with all the agonized screaming and gunfire and shrieking metal. And history hadn't preserved the sound of Bucky's voice. Steve had checked. It had just been Captain America who spoke on all those propaganda films and newsreels, his Howling Commandos silent and relegated to montages and still pictures. He couldn't be too resentful though, not when history had preserved the precious sight of Bucky laughing and smiling, caught in one perfect loop in the Smithsonian.

So maybe Steve just didn't remember Bucky's voice, not perfectly. He'd been half deaf for the better part of their friendship after all. Maybe his memory didn't hold the exact softness of Bucky's voice, its particular pitch. Maybe all the certainty he had left was in how its soothing and smooth tones had meant home and safe when Bucky had read to him when he'd been too sick to read himself. Maybe he could only be sure of the animated rise and fall of Bucky's chatter, the way he'd talked and talked when he got home from work, regaling Steve with the latest neighborhood gossip or the plot of whatever pulp novel he was reading.

Whatever Steve did or didn't remember, however imperfect the memory of Bucky's voice, listening to Jack plucked at some chord in Steve's heart, and set it to thrumming. It didn't matter that Steve was wedged uncomfortably in a tree's branches, it didn't matter that Jack was just talking about equations and math terms Steve didn't know or care about. He sounded like Bucky.
Hilarious and sweet reunion story.

Spider-Man/Fantastic Four

Keep the Fire Burning by [archiveofourown.org profile] Traincat
In Uncanny Avengers #20, the Red Skull, using Johnny as a psychic puppet, taunted Spider-Man by saying he'd kill Johnny in front of Peter, and it was the most beautiful panel in the whole entire world. Peter and Johnny in the aftermath. Oh boys.

Star Wars

Always Near by [archiveofourown.org profile] afrai
He couldn't believe he'd made Chirrut Îmwe come untouched. The thought felt like sacrilege, but a spectacularly impressive form of sacrilege. He would feel proud if he wasn't so tired. Baze and Chirrut meet when Chirrut is a sex slave working for the Hutts. And it's not even actually AU. Funny and sad and sweet.

become a blooming place by [archiveofourown.org profile] notbecauseofvictories
Modern AU in which Poe accompanies Finn and Rey to Han's funeral and quietly pines for them. Lovely. (note: it's all lower case, originally posted to tumblr)

Constellation Light by [archiveofourown.org profile] noxelementalist
Rey tries to learn the constellations from D'Qar. Leia helps. GROSS SOBBING.

Illuminations by [archiveofourown.org profile] stitchy
In anticipation of their separation they pass the rest of the night together in accordance with only their own traditions and personal oaths. They speak their prayers into kisses, setting lips to skin like scripture to page. Passion, Attachment, and Emotion - instead of obstacles they are the walls behind which they can take cover in a galaxy rumbling with threat of war. So long as they have each other they know peace and sustenance. Despite what the masters of the Whills may think, their dedication to the Force is not obstructed by their partnership, but in fact magnified between them. What better cause is there to serve a higher power than its promise to bind all things now in the hereafter, them to each other most of all? Really lovely look at Baze and Chirrut from Chirrut's POV, through the end of the Clone Wars and Order 66.

Long Ride Ahead by [archiveofourown.org profile] saellys
This is a really lovely and melancholy AU where Bodhi and Jyn grow up together on Jedha and that changes a few things in the story.

A Proud, Unpleasant Sort of Man by [archiveofourown.org profile] angel_deux
It takes Cassian Andor and Han Solo an embarrassingly long time to realize that they aren't each other's rivals. hee! Boys are dumb. even hotshot smugglers and brilliant rebel spies.

Private Celebration by [archiveofourown.org profile] dreamiflame
Sweet first time for Han and Leia.

A Single Monk in Good Standing Must be in Want of a Bro by [archiveofourown.org profile] scaramouche
Utterly delightful Baze/Chirrut in which Baze is very slow to clue in that his feelings for Chirrut might be returned. <333

The Storm by [archiveofourown.org profile] Valmouth
Lovely slice of introspection as Obi-Wan remembers Satine. *sniffle*
