When they lay together at night, skin to skin and legs tangled, Chirrut's habit was to run his hands down Baze's back—to listen to the sounds of the temple and the sleeping city around them, to feel the alleys and streets and by-ways and squares in colours and etched lines beneath his palms. It was the kind of mantra that would have scandalised their old masters, but it made smiles come as readily as prayers to Chirrut's lips.

Baze's faith burned bright for years. NiJedha and its temple stood for a thousand generations. And then: gone, all of it.
So sad and lovely. *sobs*

Steve nods and looms intimidatingly. “We had a very productive conversation while you were unconscious.”

Rage contorts Zemo’s face into something ugly. “What?” he repeats.

“Did your whole plan hinge on us not communicating with each other like adults?” asks Tony. The look on Zemo’s face is answer enough. “Oh my god, it did!” Wilson offers him a hand up, and Tony holds his hands out to everyone for high fives. No one takes him up on it. So much for team-building. “Hey everybody, good job, we used our words and we derailed this guy’s whole revenge plan, we are so great. Next up, figuring out the Accords!” The power comes back on, and everyone flinches and covers their eyes for a second. “Wait, how are we getting Barnes out of here?”
A great fix-it not just for the plot dumbassery of Civil War, but for Tony and Pepper as well. Hilarious and adorable!

Perilous Underside of the World by [archiveofourown.org profile] eyres
"C'mon, Buck," he says. "Do you remember... we used to climb onto the roof on the nights it got too hot to sleep. Up over the fire escape."

Bucky stays just behind him as they work their way upward. "I don't remember," he says, not unkindly but wanting to be honest. "I don't remember much."

I don't know if I'm him, he wants to say. I don't know if the shape of me fits with the shape of him - with the shape of you. One morning, I'm afraid you'll look at me and realize I'm a stranger and your friend is dead and then where will I be.

He can't see Steve's face in the dark so they just climb.
Steve gets captured and experimented on, so the Avengers pull back together to rescue him. tightly plotted, suspenseful, and full of feels. Heed the warnings, though.

When Inej woke later, startled awake by the scrape of rope against her wrists, she looked across to find his hands gripping hers in his sleep. The sight of their fingers tangled together made her want to weep, or scream, or laugh. Here were two of the deadliest people in the Barrel, holding onto each other in the middle of the night like children afraid of monsters under their bed.

Those children had died a long time ago. They had become monsters themselves and raged wars because of it. But Inej had learned from her years on the Wraith that even the sea, great and furious and wild as it was, grew calm. It ebbed and flowed under the call of the moon. It lulled into soft pushes and pulls.

Was this how you learned to love being a monster? by holding another monster between your hands like they are walls, like you might fall apart if you let go?
Inej returns to Ketterdam, harder and darker after three years at sea, but she and Kaz find their way back to each other anyway.

“I can think of better ways,” Jason said, and Steph wasn’t sure if he wanted it to be a come-on or not but wow did it put some images in her head.

“So are you into competitive beer pong?” she asked, because she needed to change the subject. She gave him her very best ‘please say no’ look. There was no way it would end well. They could totally find another way to bond with the Sapersteins…

“Hell yeah,” Jason said instead, because after all, he was a known asshole. Steph gave him a look that she hoped told him that she thought so, and they followed Raquelle down to the basement.

she painted her cheeks with blood by [archiveofourown.org profile] lorata
Hippolyta pretends she is nothing but a doting mother now, that the milk of war has soured on her lips. It is a lie of course but she wears it well, even if Antiope sees her lips thin when Diana looks at her puzzled disappointment. Antiope could pretend, she could file down her rough edges, put on a covering of velvet and make herself a soft child's toy, but — no. No, Antiope loves Diana with a fire that only battle has ever matched, but she will not fold herself small, make herself smooth and palatable like cutting off the crusts from a piece of bread or plucking out the bones from a fish so that Diana can swallow her safely.

Her niece will take her as she is, and will not choke, whether Hippolyta likes it or not.
This is beautifully written.

"There is nothing," Baze said, "that would induce me to get into that water."

Baze regarded him with a heavy, thoughtful gaze. The sharks swarmed around Chirrut's legs, their bodies seething, elegant shadows under the ripple of clear water. They curved around him, tested the billow of his robes beneath the water with their curious mouths. Chirrut stretched a hand out towards Baze in invitation, his palm upturned, his damp sleeve spilling like ink away from the bare curve of his wrist.

"Beautiful things can be dangerous too," Baze said, for the sake of the sudden pleased curl to Chirrut's sharp mouth.

Geometry of the Impossible by [archiveofourown.org profile] Aria
"Prongs," Remus said, on their way back up to Gryffindor Tower, both he and James carefully carrying a near-overflowing mug of cocoa in each hand, "I -- thank you."

"What for?" James asked, in genuine surprise. They stopped at the bottom of a staircase, waiting patiently for it to swing around to the direction they wanted to go. Remus found that James was looking at him closely. "Remus, you do know we do all these daft things because we love you."

Coming from Lily or Sirius, such a sentiment would have been definitely overwhelming and possibly mortifying. James said it the way he said We're going to win the Cup this year or We've decided to become Animagi, the way he said everything, with cheerful confidence that the world was going to bend around his whim. James Potter here declares that the last week of Remus's life wasn't a fever dream or a favor, but something natural, and Remus's due. Remus blushed fiercely and stared down at the froth of whipped cream in one of the mugs. "That's why I'm thanking you," he managed.
Relationships are complicated, especially when you're a teenager, so it's great that Lily and Sirius are brilliant enough to figure things out. <333

"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.

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.

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.)

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.
