"I could teach you."

Startled, Lily blinked. "What?"

"To fly. I could teach you how to fly. Properly, I mean, not that rubbish from first year."

She sat back in her seat, sighing. She'd known he wouldn't understand — after all, wasn't he one of the very purebloods she'd described? — but still it stung. "That's… that's not really the point, Potter."

"I know," he said, seriously enough that she believed him. "But I can't fix those other things. I can teach you how to fly, though."

Immediately she was shaking her head and folding her arms protectively across her chest. "I don't know…"

"You were right before," he went on. "You don't need to know how to fly. There are loads of other ways to get around, and it doesn't mean you're bad at being a witch. But I still think you're missing out, and you shouldn't have to miss out because of something that happened in first year, or because a bunch of inbred idiots want to drag our society back to the Dark Ages." His expression was earnest now, the usual mischievous glint gone from his eyes. "You don't have to do it if you don't want. But if you'd like to learn, I'd like to help. What do you think?"
James takes Lily flying. Oh my heart. <333

Spider-Man/Fantastic 4

All That We Were by [archiveofourown.org profile] paramountie
Peter and Johnny wake up married and it's freaking them out. Johnny pines so deliciously *sniffle*

The Soul of Love by [archiveofourown.org profile] Traincat
Peter was different than Johnny had imagined he'd be, with them together, whenever Johnny had guiltily let himself imagine it. He was goofy. A little ridiculous. Stupidly romantic. It had been so long since Johnny had had this, and never with the sheer intensity Peter poured into it.

Johnny didn't know why he was surprised; everything about Peter was like someone had turned the knob up to eleven. All the complaining he did as Peter pulled him to his feet was a bad cover for how much he loved it.
Wistfully sweet Johnny/Peter.

Avengers

between everything, yourself, and home by [archiveofourown.org profile] napricot
Steve laughs, and—miracle he had scarcely dared to pray for—Bucky does too, a brief but bright burst of sound that Steve hasn't heard in decades. If he could have, he'd have cupped the sound in his palms like sweet water from a well, he'd have swallowed it down as if he were dying of thirst. Instead he turns his face into Bucky's shoulder to hide the sting of sudden tears, and Bucky brings his metal hand up to cup Steve's head, thumb stroking briefly across the line of his jaw. The shaky breath Bucky lets out says Steve's not the only one abruptly affected.

Steve's heart beats faster, too much gratitude and love to fill its four chambers. Bucky's heart is as steady as ever, the metronome by which Steve has measured his life, and Steve tries to match it again.
Exquisitely lovely recovery for Bucky (and Steve too), with lots and lots of delicious pining. (Peggy is mentioned but oddly absent otherwise.)

Cards Against Certain Avengers by [archiveofourown.org profile] somehowunbroken
The Avengers play Cards Against Humanity, and nobody expects Steve to be as good at it as he is. Hee!

only seeing myself (when i'm looking up at you) by [archiveofourown.org profile] notcaycepollard
Very hot Steve/Natasha.

Captain America/Star Wars

A Long Way From Brooklyn by [archiveofourown.org profile] celeste9
Bucky somehow ends up in a First Order cell. Luckily, Poe and Finn are locked up next door. Oh heart.

Star Wars

Back From the Future: Episode VI The Clone Wars by [archiveofourown.org profile] Ariel_Sojourner
Luke and Vader travel back in time to the Clone Wars era and end up fixing everything. all the things! <3

Fast, Thorough, and Sharp as a Tack by [archiveofourown.org profile] igrockspock
"No, seriously, Princess. This would be a lot easier for both of us if you'd get the chip off your shoulder."

And what sort of help do you imagine I need from you? Leia bit back the tart reply. Her mother would say she was being snotty. Because she was be snotty, and prickly, and defensive -- all her character flaws, wrapped up in one neat package.

"What sort of help do you have in mind?" she managed. Not civil, exactly, but she could do worse. Had done worse. Many times.

Han shrugged. "I don't know. Whatever you need."
Han and Leia in the early days after Yavin. Oh my heart.

The Boy from the Stars by [archiveofourown.org profile] Lefaym
Beru has spent enough time with her sister's children to know that some babies are difficult. But the way Luke cries isn't the same as the others she's known. He doesn't scream loud enough to pierce her eardrums, he doesn't rage or whine when he is hungry or his diaper needs changing. The med-droid at Anchorhead says he is in perfect health. But still, Luke cries on and on with tiny, heartbreaking sobs.

"What could he possibly want?" Owen asks her one morning, his voice heavy with frustration.

"I don't know," Beru says, because she thinks that Owen will scoff if she suggests that Luke is grieving. He would be right, too, Beru thinks -- how could an infant barely a month old be aware of all that he has lost?
Lovely look at Beru during Luke's infancy.

Got a lot of fight left in me by [archiveofourown.org profile] silveronthetree
"Do you ever meditate?"

"Not really," she says. She's always preferred to be active, that sort of concentrated reflection isn't for her.

"You are very like your father," Kenobi says. People frequently compare her to Bail, and Leia feels a warm glow every time it happens, but this doesn't quite feel like a compliment and Leia frowns. "Meditation can help you," he says.
Leia accompanies the droids to the surface of Tatooine and meets Ben Kenobi, and his young friend, Luke. Aw heart.

How the Other Half Lives by [archiveofourown.org profile] aradian_nights
Thoughtful, enjoyable AU series where Luke is raised as Prince of Alderaan and Leia is living on Tatooine with the Larses. Six complete stories so far (and one in progress covering the events of ANH). Does some really interesting things with Leia, especially.

in tongues and quiet sighs by [archiveofourown.org profile] anghraine
Leia and Cassian and the way common language ties people together. Lovely.

Minor Repairs by [archiveofourown.org profile] celeste9
Poe and BB-8 have a conversation. Oh heart.

The New Guy by [archiveofourown.org profile] ambiguously
There's a long moment, and later Ezra knows it's a moment where he could have given in to sorrows and angers he's been carrying since he was seven years old. But he can sense the Force in Luke, can sense it like a beacon. He sees the honest, worried confusion on his open face and in his clear eyes. He's not a Sith or another servant of the Dark Side. He's a lonely kid who lost his family and got a lucky shot at the Death Star. Ezra doesn't think much of the Rebellion's new hero, but then he gets to know him a little. Oh boys.

raise a glass to the four of us by [archiveofourown.org profile] rain_sleet_snow
The Resistance honors its dead. Lovely.

Strong Loyalty Subprogram by [archiveofourown.org profile] wordslinging
That time BB-8 saved Poe from space pirates. ADORABLE.
