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.

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.

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. ♥

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."
<333

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

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 Raven Cycle

Goodbye Highway by [archiveofourown.org profile] Zee
Long, slow post-canon story where the kids find Glendower but Ronan loses his memory, and neither he nor Adam deals all that well with it. Lovely and wistful.

Devil's Cub

a thing with feathers by [archiveofourown.org profile] hazel
So Devil's Cub is my very favorite Heyer, and possibly my favorite romance of all time, and this version of it is utterly brilliant. I am completely entranced by this version of Mary and Dominic, and their continental adventures, plus the story rehabs Mary's mother and sister, as well! Absolutely amazing.

Gilmore Girls

what are you afraid of, making it better? by [archiveofourown.org profile] dollsome
"But I was happy doing it because the whole time I thought, ‘I bet this will make Lorelai smile.’ I can’t tell you all the stupid stuff I’ve done over the years and liked doing just because I knew you would smile at it. And I don’t want there to ever be a day when you don’t feel like smiling and it’s my fault you feel that way. So if I’m making you feel bad, you have to tell me, okay? Because then I’m letting you down, and that’s the one thing I never want to do.”

“Really?” she teases, starting to smile. “The one thing?”

“I’m not wild about the idea of watching Stars Hollow Elementary’s production of Godspell either,” he says dryly, “but we both know you’re going to drag me into that one.”
Emily saves the day and Luke and Lorelai talk instead of being stupid. The perfect s6 fix-it. *happy sigh*

See Me In Hindsight by [archiveofourown.org profile] returnsandreturns
"I haven't," Amy says, distracted by the fact that she's almost panting against the side of Rosa's face, "With a girl—a woman," because, yeah, Rosa's not a girl. Rosa has possibly never been a girl. Rosa probably came out of the womb as a grown ass woman wearing tasteful leather, and Amy has always been kind of jealous of that, except she's not jealous right now. She is definitely something other than jealous. Utterly perfect Amy/Rosa. <333

Gina nods and takes her coffee. She feels like one of those teachers in an after-school special when they finally teach a kid to read. "Flawless."
Rosa is Wonder Woman, because of course she is. And Gina is her Wonder Girl. <333

The Bourne Legacy

Transitional by [archiveofourown.org profile] Ylixia
He'd known she was beautiful, once, back when he'd still thought of such things, before her cool professional manner and his growing bitterness had pushed all the whimsy out of his mind.

She is radiant now, arms flung wide, face tipped back to drink in the sun, spinning in the sand and sea as her hair flies around her face. On an island paradise with their only transportation sailing steadily into the horizon and civilization a good five-hour hike away, Aaron thinks he's never been surrounded by such beauty before.

He thinks he finally knows what happiness feels like.
