The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins — but in the heart of its strength lies weakness:

One lone candle is enough to hold it back.

Love is more than a candle.

Love can ignite the stars.

– Matthew Stover (Revenge of the Sith novelization)


Songs that remind me of a movie/book/tv-series:

1. How To Save A Life (Alex Goot) - Star Wars; Anakin's and Obi-Wan's friendship

2. Slipped Away (Avril Lavigne) - Merlin; Arthur's thoughts on Morgana after season 3 finale

3. Keep Holding On (Avril Lavigne) - Merlin; Arthur and Merlin in general

4. Old Songs (Barry Manilov) - Star Wars; Anakin's try to save his marriage with Padmé

5. Waiting For The End (Linkin Park) - Star Wars; Obi-Wan right after the end of RotS, alone in his hut on Tatooine

6. Fallen (Sarah McLachlan) - Star Wars; Anakin during Order 66

7. Behind Blue Eyes (Limp Bizkit) - Harry Potter/Star Wars x-over; a blend of Tom Riddle and Anakin Skywalker

8. What I've Done (Linkin Park) - Harry Potter; an AU fic where Harry goes all Dark Lordish on everyone and then redempts himself

9. Cinderella (Steven Curtis Chapman) - Star Wars; AU fic: What if Anakin didn't go dark, what if he raised Leia?

10. I'll Be Missing You (Puff Daddy) - Vader to Padmé after Mustafar

12. Goodbye (Audio Adrenaline) - Anakin's (alternatively Obi-Wan's) thoughts during the Mustafar fight

13. Nights In White Satin (The Moody Blues) - Dark Shadows; kind of the whole movie but mostly Barnabas

14. Not Alone (Patty Griffin) - NCIS episode 'Shiva'. Kind of self-explaining if you've seen the episode.

15. Ka-Ching! (Shania Twain) - Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, for some odd reason I have yet to fathom

16. Castle of Glass (Linkin Park) - Grimm; Nick Burkhardt

Now he has to face the consequences of his choices, avoid suspicion of everyone from the Jedi Council to Palpatine and try to prevent the future from turning out as badly Before all while somehow finding a way to balance the Force... again!' Therapy, Anakin&Siri, Anakin&Yoda, time travel fix-it AU. Redemption. Slave mentality. Psychotherapy. Angst, h/c. Mustread!)

21. Through the Rift by Above the Winter Moonlight

22. The Slightest Bit of Happiness by amthyst-fire

23. The Awakening by Lilac Moon

24. Seek Truth by Charlie Hayden

25. Salvation by Shawn30 (the Anidala fic where Palpatine dies and everybody lives happily ever after. Very similar to 'Amor Vincit Omnia')

26. Restless Warrior by Aria Saralyn

27. Keeping Faith, Book II: Allies

28. Pulse by froovygirl

29. Flip by Snootiegirl99 (AniObi slash)

31. Thicker Than Blood by Hidden-Shadow-of-Me

32. Landing at Point Rain Revisited

33. Surprises by sharp52092

34. A Night for Opera and Everything Else

35. Amor Vincit Omnia by Shawn30 (aka The Ultimate Happy Ending. Very similar to 'Salvation')

36. Fall of the Sith by Souderwan (aka, Mace Windu goes dark instead of Anakin)

37. Okay, so I can't get the name of this fic, but it's good so I'm just going to put the link here: http:///post/65864090338/redemption-1-4

38. Too Ridiculous to be True by Jedi Master Misty Sman-Esay (wherein Palpatine is Obi-Wan's father)

39. A Piece of Light by Padfootkicksbutt (Anakin meets Han Solo)

40. Solo Down by Imperial Remnant ('It's a family reunion. A complicated family reunion, thanks to time travel.' Vader, Luke, Leia, Han, Kylo, Rey, and Hux. Sounds fun...)

41. Into the Archives by skygawker ('After hearing the legend of Darth Plagueis the Wise from Palpatine, Anakin decides that his best chance to save Padme is to break into the restricted Holocron Vault of the Temple Archives to search for information about Plagueis. Predictably, all does not go according to plan. Revenge of the Sith AU.' The one in which the combined effort of Padmé and Obi-Wan manage to turn Anakin back to the light in Palpatine's office)

42. Chance by rukushaka ('Obi-Wan goes to talk to the Council; he might have a chance after all. Support from Qui-Gon, time travel, vignette.' Everything has beauty, including this fic. There is a lot of angst in this one)

43. Double Agent Vader by Fialleril ('A series of one-shots set in a universe where Vader turned double agent for the Rebellion about three years after ROTS, and Leia is now his primary contact with the Rebellion.' The summary makes it sound more funny than it is. Actually, it's all about family and friendship and trust and Leia and Vader's relationship. In which Vader is the Rebel spy Ekkreth and Leia gets told a lot of old Tatooine tales)

44. force ghosts by Trillian_Astra ('Kylo Ren has wanted to speak with Darth Vader's ghost ever since he learned that Force ghosts were possible, but has never been granted the opportunity. Meanwhile, a young scavenger named Rey finds companionship with a disembodied voice that calls itself Ani.' Character piece - essentially Anakin and his grandkids. Somewhat akin to Fialleril's two oneshots about Anakin and Rey and Kylo Ren)

45. Ghosts of Our Past by LightningStarborne ('"You know, my master thinks I've started hallucinating." "Really? Please tell him that I firmly believe in my own existence." "Of course we both believe you're real. You are, you know, the one my master thinks I'm hallucinating, and I really don't want to be insane."' In which Obi-Wan dies instead of Qui-Gon, which leads to Qui-Gon taking on Anakin as a Padawan yet treating him very coldly. Fast forward thirteen years into the future, and Anakin's own Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, is seeing Obi-Wan as a ghost. Only, nobody believes her. New fic, but seems exceptional so far)

46. The Guiding Winds by Fialleril ('Anakin survives ROTJ, and he and Luke return to Tatooine. It's a homecoming in more ways than one.' The one in which Anakin re-baptizes himself through an ancient Tatooinian ritual with water)

47. Nature Nurture Heaven and Home by Fialleril ('Pass on what you have learned, Master Yoda had said. But Yoda had never specified which things.' Sequel to the fic above. In which Anakin works on a secret project and Luke plans the future of the Jedi Order and has questions about the Jedi Code)

48. Never Let Go by Between the Fire and the Storm ('A mission gone wrong lands Anakin in the hands of Count Dooku while the rest of the galaxy is under the impression that he is dead. With the Sith's sole purpose being to turn him to the Dark Side, Anakin finds resisting difficult as his life, sanity, and family are threatened. Yet through this "training," Anakin realizes a simple plan to destroy the Sith and end the war. Join them.' Basically what the summary says. This is a rare case of the summary working perfectly well. Not really a Sith!Anakin, but definitely dark!Anakin at times. Mace Windu is amazing: he is strict, but does not have a stick up his ass)

49. Heirs to the Rebellion by Hermitage ('In which the board is reset, and our heroes contemplate their next steps.' Rey meets her father, Luke)

50. When Darkness Seems to Hide This Place by IllyanaA ('After killing three of the Jedi Order's best and brightest, Palpatine's fight with Jedi Master Mace Windu goes shorter than expected. Afraid he's lost his chance at recruiting a new apprentice, Sidious unleashes Order 66 across the galaxy, but, per their programming, the Clone Army is not to harm Anakin Skywalker. After witnessing the most painful loss he's ever experienced and injured at the hands of his captors, Anakin is ready to die like the rest of the Jedi, though not before getting his vengeance.' The one in which Anakin doesn't turn but is wounded and the remaining Jedi – which there are lots of – relocate to an ancient Jedi Temple, and Rex comes along because he has ripped out his chip a long time ago and didn't kill any Jedi)

51. The Flesh Is Weak by EmpiresofExtimacy ('Kylo has never satisfied the carnal desires of the flesh. It is a sin, one that must be paid not in coinage, but control. And control, he has learned, is a currency difficult to come by. He learns to function without, wears asceticism in the straight lines of his robes, the sharp corners of his mask. He purges himself of the deceitful ways and does not touch or look upon another. It becomes second nature, a comfort, to bear the purity of self-restraint. It is second nature until it is not.' Kylo Ren/Hux, no actual slash but unrequited)

52. Another Night by EmpiresofExtimacy ('It’s too tender, too close to something it should not be. Kylo can feel Hux pliable and soft beneath his hands. He lays his forehead against Hux’s, lets his eyes drift shut.' Kind of sequel to the above. Drunk!Kylo Ren, kind of drunk!Hux)

53. Calling Bluffs by azhdarchidaen ('When Leia can't come along on a routine mission, Han doesn't think much of it. He, Luke, and Chewbacca should still be able to complete the objective just fine, shouldn't they? With extra time to tease the kid over his very apparent disappointment. But when the mission -- and the teasing -- starts to go awry, Han realizes it might be time for him to re-examine the hand he's been trying to play with.' Asexual!Luke, very good)

54. Redemption by Abigail Ashe ('"The moment he looked into her head was the moment Kylo Ren became Ben Solo once more." Or in which Kylo Ren turns away from the Dark Side and returns home with his father.' Han/Leia)

55. Vision by malic124 (Leia talks with her father's ghost after Kylo Ren kills Han. Takes place near the end of The Force Awakens)

56. The Force's Prophecy by JediC8H10N4O2 ('The Force had a better guideline if only the Jedi had listened better. As far as the Force was concerned, the Jedi may have preferred that to what happened, but the end goal was reached.' Episodes I-VI from the Force's point of view. Amazing)

57. Future Tense by seiji ('“You got a family? Got a boyfriend? Cute boyfriend?” Finn wants everything out in the open. Rey's not sure what she wants, but it's not that.' Asexual!Rey, aromantic!Rey, Finn/Poe, Rey&Finn&Poe)

58. Where Respect Comes From by Drappersky ('During the Clone War Anakin makes a move on his Master not realizing Obi-Wan is asexual. Anakin continues with misguided persistence and Obi-Wan tries to avoid their problems. When it finally come to a head what will happen?' Asexual!Obi-Wan)

59. The Smallest Choices Make The Difference by Amugon ('Hearing what others said about his grandfather Ben became afraid to become like the man. Growing up Ben didn’t hear many stories about his grandparents. He knew who they were, it was hard to avoid listening in to words exchanged between people when they involved him in some way. A few people feared he was force sensitive and would become like his grandfather.' Ben Solo never becomes Kylo Ren; asexual!Kylo Ren, asexual!Ben Solo; Ben/Poe)

60. Homeward Bound by oncomingstorm42 ('Leia Organa knows her brother. He's stubborn and it'll take more than Rey to bring him home. So she sends a message.' Yes, she uses the 'you're my only hope' line, and Luke retaliates by coming back and saying 'I'm Luke Skywalker, I'm here to rescue you'. Wonderful symmetry)

61. Birthday by sparklight ('Leia, Luke and their nineteenth birthday. There's also a Death Star involved.' Wow, who needs a heart. Not me)

62. The Sad Grandpa Trilogy by nymja ('Skywalker, Kenobi. It was always meant to go full circle. Rey Kenobi theory.' Obi-Wan watches Kylo Ren, Anakin's grandson, and Anakin watches Rey, Obi-Wan's granddaughter)

63. Happily Ever After by Imadra Blue (imadra_blue), imadra_blue, Luthe ('When his children run away to save the galaxy from endless war on their own, Anakin Skywalker must embark on a journey across the galaxy to bring Luke and Leia home -- a journey that partners him again with his old Master, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and leads them into a relationship neither expected.' Anakin/Obi-Wan slash, featuring Luke, Leia, Grievous, and Dooku. Anakin has left the Jedi Order shortly before Padmé's death in childbirth. Darth Sidious is dead but the war goes on as Count Dooku, having mysteriously survived, refuses to surrender. BAMF!Obi-Wan; Obi-Wan refuses to give up on being a Jedi and Anakin doesn't want to go back to the Jedi or send his kids to them, but eventually they find a middle ground: Obi-Wan becomes their personal tutor in the usage of the Force. Intriguing fic, lots of subtle hints at h/c and angst from Obi-Wan and Anakin)

64. The Light in Perfection by Dreaming_of_a_Bright_Sky ('With the Galaxy headed on a path leading straight into Darkness, two Jedi are given the chance to prevent it.' Time travel but not really, more like Force visions. Fix-it. The entire Jedi Council bar Yoda and Obi-Wan are class-A jerks, and I mean it in the worst way possible. The fic is very cheesy but also so very good. AniObi preslash)

65. walls cave in by ygrittebardots ('There are worse assignments than travelling halfway across the galaxy to spring a senator out of jail, only this is the third time this year and Padmé's starting to think he's doing it on purpose.' Jedi!Padmé, Senator!Anakin, Anidala)

66. Where Have We Come? by soaring_heart ('The first time was one of the hardest and the easiest. Obi-Wan loses at Mustafar, but instead of dying he wakes up at the dawn of the last day of the republic, doomed to repeat the worst day of his life, over and over again.' Sad, implied angst, but so very good. Time travel, fix-it yet not. Groundhog Day!AU on the day of Mustafar)

67. More Than Anything by Engineerd ('Anakin's soulmate mark is on the palm of his right hand.' AniObi slash, major character death [ie Obi-Wan]. The one where Palpatine kills Obi-Wan and Anakin turns but then kills Palpatine and takes charge of the clones and disappears)

68. Finding Peace in a Time of War by Resacon1990 ('Anakin first notices it when he’s thirteen years old and he’s been taught all about the emotions he’s not suppose to be feeling.' AniObi slash, still canon until the Order 66 attack on the Temple. Also, Mace Windu lives)

69. The Invisible Truth by lucelafonde ('Obi-Wan has a tattoo he doesn't like to talk about. Anakin keeps asking.' Anakin and Obi-Wan are soulmates. AniObi slash)

70. Does the Heart Good by LaheyHale ('Anakin and Obi Wan have a rare day off. Lots of sleeping, lots of cuddling, and lots of love with our two favorite Jedi.' Light fluff, but not enough as to qualify as humour. AniObi slash)

71. Hello From the Other Side by DarthNickels ('Kylo Ren is destined to take up the mantle of Vader. The Force can be incredibly literal.' Body swap: Darth Vader becomes Kylo Ren and Kylo Ren becomes Darth Vader. Leia isn't terribly happy about this development. Very interesting idea, well-executed so far. Vader is exactly like Vader at his darkest, and yet he shows concern and respect for his family. ' It occurred to Han just how awkward this situation actually was—here he was, having a heart-to-heart with Darth Vader, in the ‘fresher with the broken shower on the ship they’d used to outrun him for more than three years.')

72. Vignettes by Hardwood_Studios ('Anakin remembers every moment that brought them together, every moment that kept him sane.' Anakin/Obi-Wan slash. Well-written)

73. Custos by Jedipati ('The Revenge of the Sith went very differently. Now, six years later, Obi-Wan Kenobi guards the Imperial Prince and Princess from hiding, hoping that he will never have to reveal himself. Because if he did- well, he tried never to think about it.' Amazing fic, with Padmé as Empress and Anakin/Vader as Emperor-Consort. Gen, Anidala)

74. The Conversation by Eryninn ('Life after death for Obi Wan and Anakin has just about the same kind of trials as life before.' AniObi slash)

75. Dealing by CasperBleu ('When confronted with the possibility of losing each other, ObiWan and Anakin's reactions surprise everyone, including themselves.' AniObi slash)

76. we make our own love in this world by thestartoftime ('Anakin Skywalker didn't ask for a family this dysfunctional. He's got one anyway. or: sports lesbian ahsoka, student council president padme, gay nerd obi wan, and emo quarterback anakin are their own kind of family. it's kind of a beautiful story.' High School AU, AniObi)

77. Eye of the Storm by citizenjess ('Obi-Wan deals with the fallout, both physical and emotional, of Anakin's final battle with Asajj Ventress.' http:///682.html; h/c, angst, Anakin&Obi-Wan bonding)

78. Second Chances by Driverpicksthemooseic (Ratkinzluver33) ('Leia wasn't convinced inviting evil incarnate to join them in fighting the Empire was exactly one of Obi-Wan's brightest ideas.' Haven't read it in full, but I am fully certain that once I do, it will be in my top 5 favourite Star Wars fics, because it has everything I love in any fic, but especially Star Wars: time travel or de-aging, Obi-Wan in OT, Luke, Leia, Han, Ahsoka, Vader/Anakin, Skywalker family bonding, Anakin bordering on light and dark, lots of dark themes, and other delicious things)

79. Second Chances by Stodgey/Sophie ('Anakin finds Obi-Wan in his self-imposed exile on Tatooine.' http:///adult/secondchances.html; AniObi slash; suitless Vader)

80. First Meet by late_night ('Anakin first met Obi Wan Kenobi at a small diner. And it was the beginning of a beautiful partnership.' James Bond!AU, spy!AU, Double-Oh!Anakin, 007!Anakin, Q!Obi-Wan, except with the CIA)

81. Return to the Point of No Return by theascetic ('"Anakin, please-" "Don't beg me, Master,” says the last of the Sith, tenderly reaching to cup Obi Wan's hot cheek with a gore-stained hand. “Command me.” The ever-popular time travel fix-it fic... with a bit of a twist.' Time travel, obviously. Redemptive Anakin/Vader. Anakin/Vader being kept as a slave or prisoner by Obi-Wan and the remains of the Jedi Order after Vader killed the Emperor; fix-it of sorts; a Jedi-Sith bond. Done very well)

82. Night-Talk by Cara J. Loup (Han gets drunk with Lando and complains about his perfect relationship with Luke; http:///web/20071030193807/http:///newfict/night.htm)

83. The Princess, the Smuggler and the Sith Lord's Son by Sassaphrass ('Han Solo was trying to rescue her Royal Annoyingness from the Death Star when he runs smack into Vader's kid. Naturally he does the logical thing and takes him hostage. This is where the story starts. Or, Luke just wanted to get some snacks when he ran into a Wookie, a Princess and a Space Pirate. They day's pretty much downhill from there.' Luke Vader-ish; Han/Luke, AU)

84. who cares about your lonely heart by Elenothar ('After the Battle for Coruscant, Obi-Wan has wings, a Sith Lord to handle, and a former Padawan who's still not following a code of conduct for the Jedi. Facing the Sith Lord might be the easy part.' AniObiPadmé, asexual!Obi-Wan, wingfic, winged!Obi-Wan)

85. Ripples by TardisIsTheOnlyWayToTravel ('Vader decides that the creation of the Death Star is a step too far, and finally turns against Sidious. This has a ripple effect.' Gen; sane and cunning Vader)

86. Second Chance For Everything: Padawan Mine by KatHarkness_Katara ('Obi-Wan arrives first. Still wrestling with the knowledge what his Padawan had become, he knows his best chance is to ally with his former Master, and become a Padawan himself once more. His second best chance is to leave the Order all together...' Time travel, fix-it fic)

87. Enemy of My Enemy by MissShelockHolmes ('Obi-wan knows this a bad idea. A Sith Lord wants to work with the Jedi to take down another Sith Lord and gives the Jedi command of a powerful force user whose only skill seems to be fighting? Oh yea, no way that can go badly. Also known as: Anakin gets a childhood worst than canon, Obi-wan is much too tightly laced, and they sort of fall in love on the battlefield.' Anakin/Obi-Wan, Sith!Anakin, Darth Plagueis lives and raises Anakin. It's an interesting concept: Anakin as a Sith Lord from the beginning, and then meeting Obi-Wan. This would mean that it would be one of those rare fics where Obi-Wan and Anakin are truly equals, where nobody trained the other one. I also find it interesting that Ahsoka was paired up with Qui-Gon. Why would Qui-Gon be alive, though. Would Maul not have killed in on Naboo regardless of Anakin's presence. As far as I see, the only thing that would change would be that they would not be able to get a hyperdrive as quickly, and that Qui-Gon would not antagonize Obi-Wan by saying he is ready to train Anakin at the expense of Obi-Wan. This should not affect the Naboo duel. ... Or maybe I'm looking at this too deeply. After chapter 4, the paragraphs become normal. The first four chapters, they're structured in clumps and blobs. Vader had an isolated if somewhat okay childhood. 'Sith temple is pretty. Plagueis is creepy and mean. Obi-wan helps Vader to his room and sits with him again because he does that.')

89. Echoes of Mortis by wreckageofstars ('In a universe where the Father failed to take away Anakin's vision of the future, the Hero With No Fear struggles with the knowledge of what he will become and the knowledge of who, exactly, is responsible. Drastic steps are taken and in the process things go a little bit...sideways.' You know, when there is a 'it's less of a fix-it and more of a 'ruin it differently', I don't usually take it seriously, but let me tell you, this story spirals out of control due to Palpatine being Palpatine pretty quickly, even when Anakin tries to prevent it. Sidious blackmails Anakin by threatening Padmé, Ahsoka, and Obi-Wan, and regularly electrocutes him. Then the Council attacks Palpatine and is murdered by him, and Palpatine does his 'I declare this galaxy an empire' move and blames everything that ever went wrong on Anakin. Kind of a fix-it!fic, kind of but not really a time travel fic)

90. starbird by imaginarykat ('As far as Anakin’s concerned, Obi-Wan is the picture of a perfect Jedi. Anakin thinks he knows everything about Obi-Wan but doesn't. Anakin thinks a lot of things, actually, and he's wrong about most of them. Anakin's whole world view is turned upside down. Obi-Wan is having the time of his life.' Obi-Wan Gives Significantly Less Fucks Than Anyone Thinks. Obi-Wan Is Not Your Poster Child. Some humour some action some violence, some other things too. Mentions of torture. Slightly inappropriate use of the Force – Obi-Wan's playing with the food, literally. Anakin/Obi-Wan)

91. you sing it out loud, "who made us this way?" by imaginarykat ('Anakin knows what the tattoos on Obi Wan’s wrists say. Anakin Skywalker on the left one in clear, black lettering, Obi-Wan’s own elegant handwriting. Darth Vader on the right one, mangled and nearly illegible, the letters sharp and unfamiliar, surrounded by what looks like burn marks.' Soulmate AU, angst)

92. A Code to Love By by Gizzi1213 (When Obi-Wan and Anakin crash on a distant planet, the strength of three little words reveal themselves.' Gen, non-slash. 'I love you'. Friendship)

93. like my father before me by penhaligon ('Everyone knows that Darth Vader had been more machine than man. Or: the disabled legacy of the Skywalkers.' Gen, angst. Luke, Rey, mentions of Vader)

94. at the crossroads of immolation by amarielah ('Obi-Wan makes a different choice on Mustafar.' Obi-Wan is tired of the people he loves dying. Sort of fix-it but not really. Obi-Wan refuses to fight and leaves Anakin and Padmé on Mustafar)

95. Shatter by Rocket_Sith ('Ahsoka leaves. Shatterpoints appear. Anakin pokes one. Reality unfolds differently, Ahsoka's not alone, Anakin puts his angst to good use, and Windu gets a well-deserved earful.' Fun with shatterpoints. Anakin throws down with the Council. Mace Windu is an epic jackass who really needs to stop talking. Ragequit is not the Jedi way, except when it is. Fix-It of Sorts. Reference to Anakin's secret scandalous marriage to Padmé. Honestly, this is very satisfying, that Anakin can throw some of the Council's bullshit back at them totally legally)

96. somewhere, this is truth by xpityx ('If Obi-Wan had entertained thoughts of getting some uninterrupted sleep once back in their shared apartments on Coruscant, then he had been sadly mistaken. He pulls himself out of the dark reaches of what he has come to assume is his own personal Hell, and allows himself one, brief sob before untangling himself from both his sweat-soaked sheets and the tendrils of nightmare that have followed him.I would never do that, he thinks, not for the first time, I would never hurt Anakin.' It's extremely angsty on Obi-wan's side, and then it suddenly does a 180 turn and is so painfully happy and pure on Anakin's side that it makes me tear up. And it has a happy and pure ending and it's perfect and you should really read it now. First kiss, AniObi, sweet)

97. A Father's Love by x Rajah x (Anakin is given the chance to come back to life post-RotJ, and help Leia battle the Dark side while undercover as Skye Nairn)

98. An Acceptable Time by SkippingSteppingStones ('When Luke and Han's hyperdrives malfunction almost simultaneously, they are dumped into a galaxy that they have each dreamed of.' Time travel)

99. And I Will Never Grow So Old Again by patientalien ('It's been ten years since the end of the Clone Wars, ten years since Order 66 and Operation Knightfall, ten years since Anakin Skywalker disappeared into exile. A new threat to the galaxy has emerged, and there is only one man who can stop it. The question is - will he come willingly?' This is not a redemption story, at least not a happy one. This fic is dark. It seems deceptively light-hearted, but it is dark and angsty and full of regret and h/c and violence and creepiness. Anakin chooses to die at the end, in order to save the galaxy from Anakin Skywalker. Then again, this is patientalien)

100. Dark Times by Treenahasthaal ('Two years after joining the Rebellion Luke is shot down during a mission and ejects from his X-Wing in enemy territory. The events that follow lead him, painfully, to his first meeting with Vader and beyond. A father/son story although it might not seem like it at first.' An original story, very well-written, with beautiful descriptions and likeable original characters. It has a good plot, though I've yet to get past the first five chapters. One of the story's biggest pros is also its biggest fault: it is almost 300k words long. The length of this story is only surpassed by Shadow of Vader's 500k)

101. Destiny & Redemption: The Rise of the Chosen One by Ranayana ('Darth Vader has killed the Emperor, but while the Force seems to be in balance again, the galaxy is not. Heroes are still needed as the fight for liberty and democracy continues. The former Sith Lord could be the ultimate ally for the Rebels, but also their greatest adversary. Can Anakin Skywalker forget his past and be a Jedi again?' Seems to be pretty good, and, more importantly, doesn't have a nauseatingly sweet and light ending. The ending is dark, and Anakin still falls back into the Dark. He does however realize that there is no Light without the Dark, and that he needs both for balance. The one part of this story is the very overused cliché of Padmé being alive. Makes me go meh)

102. The Hero Strikes Back by Beth Weasley ('The movies showed us a mild Darth Vader, but we all know that Anakin's emotions affected him greatly. Learning about Luke gives Vader a kick in the pants, rather than a mere nudge toward the Light Side.' Grammatically speaking, it is correct, but the characters are so fucking OOC that it is unbelievable. Fun Anakin&Qui-Gon bonding, although I see a distinct lack of Obi-Wan. It is also not true that the Light requires emotions. Vader's language is very informal. Oh, and Anakin's choices are very much his own, and not only Palpatine's fault as Qui-Gon would make it seem. Also, the vilification of the Unifying Force is not only wrong, it is plain rude. The Leia part is weird. She has been raised by Bail, and yet at the mere news of Anakin/Vader being her father, she says she feels more for him than she ever did for Bail. At the very least, she should be angry about the torture. So yes, good fic but if you've read anything from my Star Wars top fics list, you'll be annoyed by this one's portrayal of Anakin, Qui-Gon, Leia, and the Force)

103. Father and Son by Redandblackcatta ('After being chased by Imperial Forces, Luke crash lands on a dangerous planet, but what he finds frozen in Carbonite there may cause him to question everything he thought he knew about the universe he lives in. It gives him a chance to end the war and save his rebel friends, and it may just give him a shot of having the family that he never thought he would have.' In which Anakin has been cloned a year before the end of the Clone Wars, and so has Ahsoka, and Anakin is good and has never turned)

112. A Light in the Dark by QueenPersephoneofHades ('At the most critical moment, someone stops him from making the biggest mistake of his life.

113. I Never Knew You by Ibelin ('After the defeat at Starkiller, Kylo Ren is on his way to Snoke to complete his training and, during meditation, he gets a visit from someone he'd always wanted to meet. It doesn't go as well as he'd hoped. Be careful what you wish for - especially when what you wish for involves Darth Vader.' In which Vader does not approve of Kylo's activities and his main focus is on keeping his children alive, so he pretty much hates Kylo for threatening Luke, and for chaining himself to the Dark Side. Vader then goes on to say that Leia will get to choose whether Kylo lives. Dark!fic, dark!Anakin - also known as Vader. Ghost!Anakin. Mustread!)

114. Raising Hope by Lore55 ('AU where Vader finds Luke on Tatooine five years after ROTS.

121. it comes to me, as of a dream by xpityx ('Padme watches uneasily as her husband wanders around her rooms, picking up and examining trinkets seemingly without order, before putting them back just far enough away from their original positions to make her frown slightly in annoyance. She would’ve have coaxed him into sitting down and talking to her some time ago, if it hadn’t been so blindly obvious that something was very much amiss. She dreads the day he comes to her and tells her that he has informed the Order in which collective orifice they can put their Code, or that he has announced their marriage to the Chancellor, or some other, horribly ill-advised course of action.' Fix-i AU, Anakin/Obi-Wan/Padmé, Anakin and Obi-Wan leave the Jedi Order)

122. Not That Heart by jamaskywalker ('Sometimes, life is more stressful than it should be, for reasons that Luke doesn't always figure out at once.

Maybe if they weren't pawns in this never-ending war that took something gentle and hardened it until it wasn't recognizeable.

The Jedi would like to, for almost exactly the opposite reason. Also, they might be a Sith. But Vader guards their secrets closely, so no one has made much headway on that front. Meanwhile, young Jedi Knight Obi-wan Kenobi returns to Coruscant after yet another mission tried to kill him. As has become their custom, his friend and jack-of-all-trades Anakin Skywalker invited him to lunch for a meal and a chance to rage against the bureaucratic machine.

If Yoda Can Meddle, So Can I by AuntieEm30 ('A series of exploratory one-shots, starting with a variation of the Crechemaster!Anakin AU, by way of a mental health professional the Council clearly needs.

187. Supreme Chancellor Obi-Wan Kenobi by stonefreeak ('By an old Republic law, all members of the Jedi High Council are senators in the Galactic Senate, and can thus be voted in as chancellor.

192. the road not taken by phantomlistener ('Mace Windu’s headache had lasted three days by this point. It had started with the news that Qui-Gon Jinn had been slain by a Sith Lord, intensified with the realisation that Obi-Wan Kenobi was in no fit state to take on the duties of a Jedi Knight, let alone train a new Padawan, and become halfway to debilitating when he had realised that he would be taking on Qui-Gon’s latest stray as his own Padawan learner. Mace trains Anakin, and a few problems become quickly apparent. Turns out that having a teacher who isn't overcome with grief and guilt makes an amazing difference.'

195. I had a vision! by NyeLung ('Mace Windu gets thrown back in time right to the point where Anakin is first presented to the Council. He remembers the horrors of the Clone Wars and he will do everything to change the oncoming future. "I had a vision" is becoming his most used phrase, he earns himself a Padawan with a penchant for trouble and Qui-Gon lives. All is going well, isn't it?

41. Misunderstood by Quill of Molliemon (it does get serious and angsty later on, and those parts are good as well – seeing Vader's transformation back into Anakin is just short of glorious – but I felt as if the first half of the story–the humorous one–was more important here)

42. My Future Folds, by heartofslash. Padmé and Palpatine gossip about Anakin and Obi-Wan. Seriously, this is hilarious.

Luke is the poor unfortunate who has to deal with this.' Crack. So. Much. Crack. Also featuring more crack. In between that, some implied hurt and comfort. But only a bit. This fic is amazing! It has oblivious!Anakin, is set post-RotJ, healed!Anakin, and asexual!Luke, and AHSOKA KRIFFIN' TANO. Bonus: Anakin's personal fan club is back, Ahsoka is plotting nefarious plans, and Luke would rather stay out of this mess, please and thank you)

52. Hi, I'm Matt by radstag ('It is no secret that the Resistance has been losing numbers over the countless months of battling with the First Order. What they don't realise is that they're going to get a new addition in the form of an unlikely technician.' Okay, so what has been written has absolutely ZERO to do with the summary unless there is a specific implied continuation, but THAT much of a continuation would need to have been written down separately. I'll quote you a better summary: '"I'm going to level with you, Kylo. This is the fifth time you have gone rampant on our equipment this week alone. We're going to have to ask you to step down temporarily."' Cue Kylo Ren goes boom with silent anger... aaaaand the fic stops right there. Once you read it, you can see how the summary is highly irrelevant to the plot)

53. pocket full of sand by philthestone ('“I’m Leia Skywalker,” she says, and there is something unfathomably life-changing about that little declaration. “We’re here to rescue you!” The Nobody Dies!AU. Leia's nine-year-old sass is the best sass. This is cute and a bit sad but also so very wonderful!)

54. too long the children's voices sing of death by philthestone ('It isn’t exactly that he’d not expected Ahsoka. In fact, her presence here makes perfect logical sense, all things considered. And it isn’t that he’s thrown by how much she’s grown, either; ten years herald the inevitable changes that accompany the passage of time, after all, and being thrown by the expected is foolish. The Force gives and takes as it wills, and time passes outside of even a Jedi’s sphere of control. And of course, the fact that she's accompanied by a chattering ten-year-old with a mop of yellow hair and a smirking, engine-grease-covered teenager is only confusing Mace more.' Funny, featuring Mace and Anakin and Obi-Wan and Padmé and Han and Luke and Leia and Ahsoka in the Rebel Alliance)

55. In Which Anakin and Obi-Wan Finally Get Their Shit Together in the Afterlife, and a Bunch of Ewoks Get Drunk with Han Solo by dapperblook (Fall_Out_Winchester08) (Cute, adorable. Anakin/Obi-Wan.

57. 5 Times Ghost Obi-Wan Helped People by BilingualBird ('5 times Obi-Wan appeared as a Force Ghost to help the younger generations out, or to knock some sense into them. Or to break a vase.

Replaceable by evilblubber ('“So we all agree that we’re hiding Ren’s shameful crime of passion by covering it up as a pre-meditated coup?” “I’m very close to being offended, Phasma.” Kylo has a bad murder habit, Phasma panics a bit before deciding that this is actually hilarious, and Hux is the only sane person in the room.'

67. You Shall Become (Me) by jedipati ('"How to accidentally join the Sith without really trying."' There were a few major differences between the Sith of old, and Bane's Sith Order. Dooku isn't a true Sith – Obi-Wan and Anakin are. To be a true Sith, you have to kill a Sith Lord first. One of those, 'you kill it you become it' things. Sith!Anakin, eventually Sith!Padmé, Sith!Ahsoka, Sith!basically most future Skywalkers)

68. i could teach you (but i'd have to charge) by pdotschuy ('There’s a reason Dooku starts his mornings off with four aspirin and a shot of rum.' In less than 4k words, a detailed universe was created, where everyone works at the Coruscant High School, and Anakin the mechanics teacher leads student rebellions and does dumb stuff that surprisingly doesn't get him fired, Ahsoka sets up a schoolwide vote on whether Anakin should date Obi-Wan or Padmé, and Dooku is an alcoholist because ANAKIN SKYWALKER. Also, Anakin and Ahsoka have plans involving firetrucks. It is just as hilarious and as surrealistic as Erik Lehnsherr's Guide To Parenting. As far as dry humour goes, this fic is one of the funniest in the entire Star Wars fandom)

69. Babysitting is a Many Splendoured Thing by DarthRuinous ('Anakin Skywalker asks a close friend to babysit for his and Padme's sixth anniversary. Things may not quite go as foreseen.' Hilarious. Palpatine is kind of a docile Sith Lord, and Obi-Wan alternates between smirking and mentally freaking out)

71. A New History by Annie Walker (Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Dooku travel back in time. Anakin is still Anakin, just as reckless and as attached as in canon. Buthje's also so freaking powerful and skilled, it's incredible. And Anakin and Obi-Wan's bond, it's the strongest bond ever felt, stronger than Anakin and Padmé's. It's like reading all the positive things about canon without any of the negative sids, while the characters stay in-character. Qui-Gon, Yoda, and Mace draw their own conclusions as to the Sith Lord's identity, and Qui-Gon thinks that the Sith is him. Anakin and Obi-Wan's lightsaber duel is more badass than any other before, and they'd be able to defeat any Jedi Master in the temple (except maybe Yoda). Anakin on his own would give Mace Windu a run for his money. Obi-Wan is the master of Soresu. Anakin's blindness to Obi-Wan's emotions is breaking my heart. and Obi-Wan's emotions themselves are breaking my heart. and Obi-Wan's willingness to clean up Anakin's messes is also breaking my heart)

72. A Monster Within by DarthObsydian ('Obi-Wan informs the Chancellor that he could be in danger from the Sith Lord, Darth Sidious.' Technically not humour, but totally funny)

The Sith Lord wonders if death might have been preferable to clumsy interrogation by Anakin Skywalker.' Dooku is sassy and so DONE with Skywalker. Anakin&Dooku bonding via Qui-Gon. Actually, Dooku is done with the idiocy of the entire Jedi Order. Dooku dies in his duel with Sidious. Long talks in small rooms. Dooku is a cranky Sith grandpa. Redemption)

He took a sip of water from the metallic canteen he was holding, drinking slow and carefully the way only a desert dweller did. “A couple weeks ago some sleemo commented that I’d never be able to improve any Imperial ships since I’m just Outer Rim trash.

Ghost!Anakin:

1. force ghosts by Trillian_Astra ('Kylo Ren has wanted to speak with Darth Vader's ghost ever since he learned that Force ghosts were possible, but has never been granted the opportunity. Meanwhile, a young scavenger named Rey finds companionship with a disembodied voice that calls itself Ani.' Character piece - essentially Anakin and his grandkids. Somewhat akin to Fialleril's two oneshots about Anakin and Rey and Kylo Ren that are listed below. Wise!Anakin)

2. don't forget (your bones and skin) by Fialleril. 'Kylo Ren has spent years seeking the guidance of Darth Vader. But he never expected this. (Or, the one where Kylo and Rey have a heated existential debate about the true nature of Anakin Skywalker. And there are ghosts.)' Spoilers for TFA. In which there are failed attempts at interrogation, and Anakin is a good grandfather to both Rey and Kylo, showing both his good side and his Vader side. It's a oneshot, but it is just so well-written and magnificent. Wise!Anakin)

3. in the place that's made of old relations by Fialleril. 'The one where Rey grows up alone on Jakku. Well, not completely alone. It turns out her grandfather knows a thing or two about living in the desert.' The prequel to the abovmentioned story. A bit longer, slightly AU considering Rey owns BB-8 to begin with. Anakin tells Rey stories of Ekkreth and other Tatooine stories, teaches her the old language of Tatooine, and Padmé gives Rey The Talk. Very h/c and fluffy. Also, there are mentions of mental torture courtesy of a crashed Star Destroyer. Wise!Anakin)

4. haunting these halls by QueenWithABeeThrone ('"I'm speaking from experience here, the Rebellion had to start somewhere." Still nothing. That’s fine, Anakin is completely used to being ignored by now. or: five people who didn't hear Anakin Skywalker on Starkiller Base and the Finalizer, and one who did.' Humor, frustrated!Anakin, very enjoyable)

5. The Right Path by TardisIsTheOnlyWayToTravel (''It's hard to idolise Darth Vader when his Force ghost tells you how awful his life was. Or, the one where Anakin's Force ghost keeps Ben on the straight and narrow, and everything works out okay.' It's surprisingly light, considering the subject. I don't know why I found it good enough for this list, but it is a very pleasant read. Grammatically speaking, it is a delight. I suppose one of the reasons why I found this fic intriguing is because this is very unlike TardisIsTheOnlyWayToTravel's other fics. It is surprisingly serious yet gentle. Wise!Anakin yet somewhat sassy!Anakin)

6. History loves to repeat itself (or does it?) by oncomingstorm42 ('As with every idea Anakin had, this turned out to be a complete disaster. In which Anakin wishes his family was more well adjusted and less prone to random outbursts of poor judgment.' Frustrated!Anakin who, to be honest, just wants to tear his own hair out)

Ghostly Encounters of the Grand-Parental Variety by Jenna_of_the_Red_Robes ('A story in which Rey and Kylo are conflicted about their feelings for each other and turn to their darling grandfathers for advice. Also, the riveting tale of Obi-Wan Kenobi convincing his former padawan Anakin Skywalker that it is CERTAINLY NOT OKAY FOR HIS EMO GRANDSON TO BE KISSING HIS PERFECT GRANDDAUGHTER REY. Also, the equally thrilling tale of Anakin Skywalker who is just happy that his dark-side-obsessed grandson actually wants to embrace something related to the light side. (Even if that means literally embracing Rey). The saga of two conflicted grand kids, their eccentric grandfathers who happen to be ghosts, and a forbidden romance.' Crack. In which Rey is Obi-Wan's granddaughter. Non-incest Rey/Kylo Ren, Anakin, Obi-Wan)

9. To Wait and To Watch by FreelyBeYourself ('You would think that Obi-Wan, Yoda, or Anakin would have appeared in the Force to try and stop Ben Solo from heading down the path to destruction. After all, they had each appeared in the Force before, to Luke. So why did they choose to remain silent when the Force awakened once again?' Ghost!Anakin, ghost!Obi-Wan, ghost!Yoda)

10. A Light in the Dark by QueenPersephoneofHades ('At the most critical moment, someone stops him from making the biggest mistake of his life.

11. I Never Knew You by Ibelin ('After the defeat at Starkiller, Kylo Ren is on his way to Snoke to complete his training and, during meditation, he gets a visit from someone he'd always wanted to meet. It doesn't go as well as he'd hoped. Be careful what you wish for - especially when what you wish for involves Darth Vader.' In which Vader does not approve of Kylo's activities and his main focus is on keeping his children alive, so he pretty much hates Kylo for threatening Luke, and for chaining himself to the Dark Side. Vader then goes on to say that Leia will get to choose whether Kylo lives. Dark!fic, dark!Anakin - also known as Vader. Ghost!Anakin. Mustread!)

12. watch me stumble over and over by QueenWithABeeThrone ('“You tried,” says Leia, flatly, when Anakin shows up to tell her of his efforts after telling Luke, “to hit my son on the head.” or: Anakin Skywalker during The Force Awakens, the not-completely-serious edition.'

Sith!Obi-Wan:

1. Shadow of Vader by Darth Vastor

2. Deceptions by Amrita Glittersong ('A few months after Geonosis, in a surprising turn of events, Dooku contacts Obi-Wan in hopes of meeting with him for negotiations. When Sidious arrives, things don't go as planned, and ObiWan ends up posing as something he never thought he would: A Sith.')

3. The Sith and The Jedi by Lincoln Six Echo ('In an universe where Jedi and Sith coexist, Sith Master ObiWan Kenobi is joined on the battlefield by Jedi Knight Anakin Skywalker without knowing the Force has something planned for them.' AniObi slash)

4. The Black Library by darthrevaan (Burning_Nightingale), OwlFlight ('Imagine a world where Obi-Wan Kenobi, raised in the Sith Ways since birth, decided to give Sidious the ultimate insult by not only *refusing* to follow his plan to eradicate the Jedi but by running off, declaring himself neutral, and founding a library of Sith Lore and Artifacts called the Black Library.' Sith!Shmi as well. More headcanons: /post/117655710757/every-time-the-jedi-tick-darthlibrarianobi-wan )

5. Fundamental Force Carriers by tanarill (time travel/body swap, redemptive Vader swaps bodies with the Anakin on Mortis. Therapy. Dark!Obi-Wan, though not the way you think)

6. You Shall Become (Me) by jedipati ('"How to accidentally join the Sith without really trying."' There were a few major differences between the Sith of old, and Bane's Sith Order. Dooku isn't a true Sith – Obi-Wan and Anakin are. To be a true Sith, you have to kill a Sith Lord first. One of those, 'you kill it you become it' things. Sith!Anakin, eventually Sith!Padmé, Sith!Ahsoka, Sith!basically most future Skywalkers)

7. Legacy by flamethrower (Obi-Wan is broken and beyond messed up by Qui-Gon's death, and is ready to do whatever it took to avenge him by killing Sidious, including joining the Sith. Very dark fic. Ghost!Qui-Gon. Obi-Wan&Dooku. Sith!Obi-Wan, dark!Obi-Wan. Obi-Wan/Jango Fett, asexual!Cody. Lots of swearing, and by that I mean being able to pick up a new vocabulary from Obi-Wan's lack of a verbal filter. I started to read it casually as a calming fic, and I did not expect to get through the entire fic in one read. Somewhat obscure and cryptic formulation sometimes, and the you have to think about the deeper meaning and paraphrasing of some sentences. Obi-Wan outwits Sidious at his own game. Obi-Wan kills Dooku, and it breaks him again and again. Anakin is a better Jedi for Obi-Wan being a Sith, and isn't it just ironic? Anakin tells Obi-Wan about his and Padmé's marriage. Honestly, I started to suspect that Obi-Wan's inner voice is Qui-Gon long before Obi-Wan himself did. 'Obi-Wan looks at him, at this Jedi Knight he somehow managed to train while half out of his mind, who is in turn training a brilliant student of his own. Qui-Gon has been after him for months, but Obi-Wan is finally—grudgingly—starting to admit that they’re his legacy, too.' Ambiguous ending, although it seems like Obi-Wan will tell Anakin the entire truth. At first, the title makes zero sense, but when you're done with it, it makes perfect sense and is the most fitting title for a fic ever. Truly fucking gorgeous fic)

9. For Want of a Sandwich by pomegrenadier ('In theory, Nar Shaddaa is a neutral world. In practice, it's a war zone.

Asexual!Evren, aromantic!Evren, LS Male Sith Warrior, Female Jedi Knight, gen, friendship, Evren&Zaarah, Vette, Quinn)

17. Let It In by pomegrenadier ('With Jaesa's coaching, Evren attempts to use the light side. It does not go well.' An interesting take on a Sith reacting to the Light side: 'Too still too bright—nowhere to hide, shivering and small and helpless and ceding control to something else and all he can do is trust that it will not let him fall—a suffocatingly impersonal gentleness that isn't his—' For someone who has had control over his powers all his life, the Light is terrifying.

28. Nomenclature by pomegrenadier ('The galaxy is getting smaller and there's no way out.' Because the previous fic was all fluff, this one is all angst.2V's memory has been wiped, the family has disbanded, Pierce is no longer Evren's, the Maelstrom is gone, and we don't even know where Vette or Jaesa or Quinn are. Evren is stuck in this nightmare and doesn't even know if any of his memories are true anymore. Panic attack because he now has truly lost everything there is to lose because Vette)

1. Yoda’s Academy for Li’l Padawans by MissDinahDarling ('Being a new student is hard.

Star Trek:

Kirk/Spock:

1. By My Nature by renchan (asexual!Spock, asexual!Kirk; http:///4104.html?thread=8620296#t8620296, TOS)

2. Entering Orbit by museaway ('Jim escapes to Iowa to avoid the media frenzy following the Narada incident, but a late-night miscommunication results in Spock turning up on his front porch.' Star Trek: Into Darkness Spoilers. Falling In Love. Hot Tubs. Motorcycles, chess, domestic bliss, cooking, popcorn. Vulcan Kisses. Just about THE cutest K/S fic. The whole fic is pure domestic fluff except the epilogue which is h/c. Spock spends a month with Kirk in Iowa. There is implied sex but nothing explicit, AOS)

3. Forty-five hours in Riverside by museaway ('"I don't understand why we couldn't have done this in San Francisco," Jim said, kicking open the front door. "We're only on planet for two weeks."' Domestic fluff. Meeting the parents, Winona Kirk and Sarek. Winona/Sarek, watching your parents flirt. Riverside. Sequel to the above, AOS)

4. Atlas by distractedKat ('Between what was and what will be stands James Tiberius Kirk, in all his fractured patchwork glory. Because saving the Federation was only the beginning.' Genius!Kirk, genius!Spock, protective!Spock, h/c, angst, fluff, humor, mind meld, Vulcans. Erixians. A friendly reminder that Spock has lost everything - his planet, his people, his family - and yet continues to move forward and develop. He's so much stronger mentally than Kirk, and that is not an insult to Kirk but an enormous compliment to Spock. Kirk said that surviving and living aren't necessarily the same thing. Kirk would have only been able to survive; he knows that, since he went through a similar catastrophe. Spock is able to live. Kirk is compassionate, daring, he is very good at fighting (almost as good as Spock), and speaks Russian, French, and Vulcan flawlessly. He inspires loyalty and friendship wherever he goes. Spock seems to be a bit conservative but wise and also compassionate when he allows himself to be. Pre-slash, friendship, later slash. Awesome!Crew. Kirk learned surfing, his method for dealing with grief, guitar, dog training, in a youth rescue camp. Underage dub-con flashbacks. Forced drugs. The youth rescue camp was part of the entire colony, and was deemed the weaker part. Quite possibly the best Star Trek K/S fic I'll read. 135k words. Beautiful and detailed descriptions. Jim dies (twice) but Spock resurrects him (twice). Kirk has a ridiculously long list of allergies. Spock and Kirk are telepathically bonded for life - soulmates, if you will. Perfect ending, with a very satisfying plot twist. A delusional psychopath of an admiral. In a final plot twist, Admiral Peters was killed by the not-a-black-ops team that Kirk trained in secret. Kirk is a bit overpowered compared to canon, but this makes perfect sense. Just. Read. It. BAMF!Kirk, BAMF!Spock. Bones is the crazy protective hypo-happy doctor we all know and love, AOS. Mustread!)

5. 35 minutes to midnight by lindt_barton ('It is stardate 22187.9, more commonly known as just before midnight on Christmas Eve, and Jim is sitting in a corridor at 4 o'clock on the disk... Spock and Jim being fluffy on Christmas night.' Asexual!Spock, Christmas fluff, mind meld, unresolved romantic tension, sleepy!Kirk, late-night chess, general cuteness, AOS/TOS)

6. Ces matins là by Marry Black (Ri_chan) ('Ces matins là, en s'habillant, Spock réfléchit, à leur voyage, au capitaine, à son T'hy'la.' Asexual!Spock, French, TOS)

7. Actions Speak Louder by Jade_Dragoness (BAMF!Spock, rescues. The one in which Spock tends in his Starfleet resignation and rescues Kirk as a civilian, and Kirk makes him go back to Starfleet. Kirk was captured to be a slave. Hurt!Kirk, AOS/TOS)

8. As Morning Shows the Day by Jade_Dragoness (De-aged!Spock, kid!Spock, young!Spock. the adorableness of this is off the roof. Even McCoy is on Team Spock. Spock still thinks humans are strange. Some creepy yet well-thought-out ideas about Spock's conception, and how he must've been very carefully artificially planned. Spock hates sickbay, presumably because he has visited it on so many occasions as a child. Wonderful Spock&Kirk&Bones bonding. Seriously. Movie nights, exploring the Enterprise, tribbles. Spock develops a crush on Kirk. It's cute and adorable and Jim worries incessantly over it. Shameless fluff, obvious angst. Kirk is forced to be a grown-up, protective!crew, humour, friendship, pre-slash. Permanent hiatus, AOS)

9. Typical by yeaka ('Bones tries to help and wishes he didn’t.' Asexual!Spock, concerned!Bones, Orions, AOS/TOS)

10. The Right Person by sheepybaa ('The first time Jim realized he was different was in ninth grade.' Aromantic!Kirk, aromantic!Spock, presumably asexual!Spock since tags, AOS/TOS)

11. The Only Thing Open on Christmas Night by doubleplusawesome ('The Enterprise is way overdue for Shore Leave and it's Christmastime back home! Kirk has planned to spend his holiday vacation alone on the Kirk family farm. Spock has plans to stay on the ship and do research. LAME. So Kirk, on a whim, invites Spock to come along with him to Iowa for Christmas.' Friendship, Christmas, shore leave, domestic, asexuality. Permanent hiatus, AOS)

12. Acceptance by MultiplyingIcicles ('James T. Kirk, Captain of the USS Enterprise, wants to foster acceptance and unity within his crew. Even in the 23rd century, other sexualities beyond heterosexuality are stigmatized and frowned upon, so he wants his crew to know it's cool to love who you want. Of course, he doesn't accept his own. Spock, on the other hand, accepted he wasn't heterosexual after the end of his relationship with Nyota. Realizations are made, and kisses happen.' Asexual!Spock, bisexual!Kirk, LGBT-friendly, TOS)

13. Brands of Desire by WerewolvesAreReal ('Jim is finally getting used to living in San Francisco, but finds that his dates with Antonia aren't keeping his attention. Meanwhile, Spock is acting distant.' Asexual!Spock, TOS. There is something to be said for this fic, and it is that it is incredible and fabulous and writes asexuality so authentically and without judgement)

14. Marriage of True Minds by Farfalla the Butterfly-Kitten ('Kirk is hiding something.' http:///spirk/true.html; asexual!Spock, mentions of masturbation, no sex, TOS)

15. Unwritten Fate by CinnamonSecrets ('Jim considers what his best option is given that he is no longer the Captain of the Enterprise.' Captain!Spock, Commander!Kirk, First Officer!Kirk. Very slow burn K/S. Amazing fic, 160k words. I'm going with my headcanon: asexual!Spock)

16. Definitions by WerewolvesAreReal ('"We call it t'hy'la," Spock says.' Character study, pre-slash K/S, t'hy'la, mind melt, five year missions, romance. Honestly, this is the only kind of K/S that I'll read with pleasure: sweet, very light pre-slash with minimal kissing and no sex. Mostly mental bonding. Fantastic oneshot. I'm going with my headcanon: asexual!Spock. TOS)

17. Family Ties by tiger_in_the_flightdeck ('While investigating some mysterious deaths, Bones comes up with the idea of seeking assistance from Spock's famous ancestor. Sherlock solves the case inside ten minutes, but finds it a good chance to learn as much as he can about Spock.' Crossover with Star Trek, Johnlock, time travel, fluff, casefic for all of ten minutes. Sherlock and Spock bonding over their captains. TOS)

18. The Trouble with Normal by Cinnamon secrets ('It's time for the Enterprise's performance evaluation. Too bad that on this ship, 'normal' gets a whole new meaning.' Hilarious humour. McCoy's answers are the best. The assumption that Spock is always near Kirk is the next best thing. AOS)

19. The Quickest Way by opal_bullets ('Jim is infatuated with his first officer, but nothing gets past that Vulcan exterior. He has no choice but to enlist the help of his crew.' I love how it seems it's Kirk's seduction of Spock when in reality it is Spock's gorgeous chess seduction of Kirk. And it was subtle as hell and lasted MONTHS. AOS. Amazing, BAMF!Spock, genius!Spock)

20. A Shot of Courage by notboldly ('As the Enterprise’s unofficial chaperone, Spock was familiar with the human tendency towards intoxication. However, he had not expected Kirk to be susceptible.' Christmas, impotence, romance, friendship, intoxication, AOS)

21. Truth Be Told by Lyricoloratura ('When they were obliged to take their host's truth serum, neither Jim nor Spock had considered what kind of "truth" they might reveal to one another - or to themselves. An already interesting away mission goes far differently than planned...' Truth serum which also lowers inhibitions, alien cultures. Average plot, good writing)

22. a sequence that you never learned by annataylor ('When Jim gets it in his head to adopt an eight year old Vulcan, Spock presents a logical solution to the issue of Jim's humanity: marriage to a Vulcan citizen.' Sorek and Spock are adorable. Flustered Vulcans are adorable. Everyone in this fic is adorable. Spock knows how to bullshit on master level. BAMF!Spock, badass!Spock. Vulcan parenting. Parent!Spock, parent!Kirk. A bit too much sex for my liking, but oh well. I honestly didn't think much of the summary upon reading it, but the fic itself is brilliant, and it has plots and subplots and subplots to subplots. AOS. Definitely worth a read)

23. The Body Swap by losingmyangelgrace ('When being beamed back aboard the Enterprise after a successful mission Jim and Spock learn that spikes in ion levels can have some unfortunate consequences.' Body swap, some smut, AOS)

24. Heart's A Mess by keltieful ('On his way to dinner with Spock, Jim sees Bones giving him a Valentine's Day card. Cue freak out.' Valentine's Day. T'hy'la, cute, misunderstandings, fluff. Illogical humans. Spock&Bones friendship)

25. And When The Double Sun Sets On The New Land by The_Strategist (The_Optimist) ('Spock suddenly finds himself on shore leave in San Francisco, except he's somehow landed in 2243, on the anniversary of the Kelvin's destruction. Desperate to get back his Captain and himself back to the correct time, but also not wanting to loose his mother and planet once again, Spock has a choice to make. Get himself back to the correct time, or try and fix this one?' Time travel, kid!fic, kid!Spock, kid!Kirk, young!Spock, young!Kirk)

29. Optimistic by q_urious ('Materialization was instantaneous, and yet it felt too slow. His mind was rushing at light-speed, the usually orderly and unforgivingly logical thought processes in tatters. It was only when his arms were relieved of their burden that he dropped to his knees, all his jumbled thoughts converging to one damning realization. I could have been too late.' Captain!Spock, Commander!Kirk, Science Officer!Kirk, First Officer!Kirk)

30. Five and One: I Wanna Hold Your Hand by Penbrydd ('Spock's flirting is totally unintelligible to Kirk, but it's enough to make the Ambassador's entourage retch.' The Ambassador is Sarek, not Spock, AOS probably)

31. Home by Lanaea ('A misshap brings the Enterprise back to Earth for a while.' The first chapter is good, haven't read the rest. AOS. Slash later)

32. Amanda Enlightens Jim by WeirdLittleStories ('Spock's mother has a productive conversation with James Kirk, one that dismantles some of the assumptions Jim has had about Spock. Amanda smiled. "You just don't understand Vulcan sexuality, that's all, Jim. Human sexuality is like a light bulb, whereas Vulcan sexuality is like a laser."' TOS)

33. Public Displays of Affection by aetin ('Various ways crewmembers find out about their superior officers' romantic entanglement.' Light-hearted, silly fic. AOS, humour)

34. strive seek find yield by waldorph ('Spock is heir to the Federation throne, Jim is Prince of America because his fucking brother abdicated, and the Klingons are on the verge of blowing shit up--a love story.' Prince!Spock, king!Spock, royal!Spock, prince!Kirk, royal!Kirk, well-written but slangy)

35. The Plan by Jonsdottir ('Valentines suck. Jim decides that the only way to get rid of annoying propositions is to fake a relationship with Spock. Now all they have to do is get caught in a compromising position by someone in the crew so the word will spread. Piece of cake. Right?)

36. A Series Of Unfortunate Misunderstandings by Jonsdottir ('The supposed epic romance of Spock and Jim. How it began and why people think they're 'doing it'. Preslash. Misunderstandings galore and pathetic attempts at humour. Fear it.' Prequel to the abovementioned fic. Hilarious)

37. Going Up by MrsEclipse9856 ('Jim knew better than to get in an elevator when the threat of power blackouts is going around. He does it anyway.' Kirk is Gaila's stepbrother, modern AU)

38. Of Failed Attempts and Taking Chances by LeandraLocke ('Things were coming to an end, or so it looked like, at least. To a really, really bad and horribly wrong end that made Leonard wonder whether there was any way left at all to fix it.' Sequel to the fic above)

39. what is love? (no, really) by serenfyrr ('In which Jim lacks every single interpersonal communication skill, so it takes him a while to figure out he's aromantic.' Humor, crack. Jim Kirk Fails at Life, Bones Should Get Better Friends. Jim is an Adult He Swears. Aromantic!Jim, Gary Mitchell is a Scapegoat for Jim's Internal Problems. AOS)

40. Start Infinity Again by Rynne ('Kirk survives Generations and reunites with Spock. He finds adapting to life nearly eighty years in the future is hard enough, but then a star about to go supernova threatens Romulus, and Kirk and Spock have to deal with Captain Nero and the strange new universe they follow him into.' Saavik is the only person I'd be okay with Spock spending the rest of his life with, if we're talking about pon farr. Honestly, she's the only person who seemed to understand him and not desire him as a lover but like him as a friend. Theirs would be a friendship bond with a bit of sex every seven years for necessity. While Valeris was the character who was the most similar to Spock and could have succeeded him had she not betrayed the Federation, Saavik was different from Spock but compatible enough to be able to form a Vulcan marriage. (My personal headcanon, of course, is that Spock's pon farrs went away after that first one that was interrupted by Kirk's 'death'.) But yes, amazing fic which incorporates TOS and AOS in a beautiful way. Kirk and Spock Prime's relationship is so pure and heartbreaking and beautiful. They are t'hy'la and k'hat'n'dlawa (soulmates). I love how Nero got the backstory he bloody well deserved, and his feelings were explored, and Spock's intentions concerning reuniting the Vulcans and the Romulans were explained. Also wonderful plot and nice mix-up of Next Gen's characters. There was one week from when I read this story's summary until I actually got around to reading the fic, and during that week, my expectations grew to quite honestly abnormal sizes – and yet this fic met each and every one of them and exceeded them by far. It's an amazing fic that everyone should read)

41. So Wise We Grow by Deastar ('"Commander Spock, we have located your son," the Vulcan lady on the screen says, which would be great, except Jim can tell by the look on Spock's face that he's never heard of this kid before in his life. "If it is expedient, the child will be sent to join you on the Enterprise within the week."' Storek is a treat. A pain in the ass most of the time, but so very lovely. Father!Spock, father!Kirk, parenting is tough. This is one of my favourite Trek fic, I love everything about it. I love the characterisation, I love Storek, I love the description, I love the slow build of Spirk, I just love it all the pieces. And you will too. Kirk and Spock are daddies, what’s not to love? Go read it. Funny yet deep, with lots of h/c and angst and fluff and chess. Brilliant, mustread)

42. Take This Sinking Boat (And Point It Home) by sinestrated ('In which Spock pines, Jim isn’t stupid (except he kind of is), and Christopher Pike has had enough of this bullshit.' Post-STID. Pikes lives and is badass and plays matchmaker. BAMF!Pike but we all know that already, matchmaker!Pike)

43. The Kiss by Amanda Warrington (TOS. Jim being hesitant but not because of being sexually attracted to a guy but because of being in love with a guy and having to form a monogamous lifelong telepathic bond. Also, a gay singles bar. http:///viewstory.php?sid=795&warning=1)

44. A Logical Formula for Love by doubleplusawesome ('A situation where Spock is in the early stages of pon farr, and Jim helps him take a cold water bath to try and alleviate some of the fever already coursing through him. Spock wonders at why this man should love him like he does, and Jim comes up with a very creative, totally logical answer. Post-TMP. Spock's second pon farr and they haven't had sex yet. Asexual!Spock, sex-repulsed!Spock. As far my asexual understanding goes, sexual attraction is something mental and not biological – which is a sexual need – and Spock still feels no attraction, ergo asexual. Angst, emotional h/c. Definitely one of my favourite Star Trek fics. TOS)

45. Love Does Not Equal Sex by WeirdLittleStories ('He's my partner, my permanent life partner, and that's different than being a friend, even a very good one.' This analysis of their relationship is spot-on. TOS, non-sexual relationship although Spock's not asexual; Kirk is het)

46. Nothing Short of Everything by Tey'Imena ('or, five times Spock gave up everything for James T. Kirk, and one time Jim gave up everything for Spock.' Kirk everntually loses command of the Enterprise, and Spock bgoes withhim. Later Spock becomes comatose. Deep relationship. More profound fic than I'd expect and oh the title, I just realized what it meant)

47. Creep by littlebirdtold ('Jim is a fandom nobody who has been crushing on a famous BNF writer for ages. Too bad the BNF in question doesn't know of his existence. Features grumpy_b, also a fandom nobody (who is damn happy to be one), and nero001, the biggest wanker in Star Trek: TOS fandom.' University AU.The story is amazing and so 200% accurate description of what actually happens, it is so funny it's not even funny. And all the fandoms are mentioned: Supernatural, Sherlock, Star Trek, even Inception. Kirk is extremely sub. They don't find out their true identities in the end, but they don't actually need to. It's perfect)

48. Ink Stains by demonllama1 ('Jim wakes up with Spock's name tatooed on his ass.' Hilarious. AOS. Vulcans mark their mates. /8222.html#cutid1)

49. Montgomery Scott: Engineer and Matchmaker by demonllama1 ('Scotty creates a matchmaking program that pairs up the most compatible people on the ship, and Kirk and Spock are number one on that list.' Both hilarious and tooth-rottingly sweet and cute. Matchmaker!Scotty)

50. Through Blind Men’s Eyes by ladyblahblah ('Jim and Spock swap bodies, and pon farr strikes.' Bodyswap)

51. Smells Like Teen Spirit by beederiffic ('Jim and Spock are turned into stereotypically moody teenagers by an alien being.' Teenager!Kirk, teenager!Spock, young!Kirk, young!Spock, deaged!Kirk, deaged!Spock. AOS)

52. Endgame by Saucery ('Kirk and Spock play chess. On and off the board.Or, the one in which Spock stealth-marries Kirk. Because Spock's sneaky that way.' Chess, strategy, seduction, romance, marriage proposals, humour, Vulcans, off-duty shennigans, sneaky!Spock. AOS)

53. Creature of the Night by FagurFiskur ('In which Jim is a vampire slayer and Spock is a creature of the night.' Vampire!Spock, Count Spockula, vampire hunter!Kirk. More or less PWP. A bit of Buffy crossover)

54. Ask by anonymous ('Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy is repealed, and Spock is a professor when Kirk proposes to him in the lecture room in front of all his students.' Professor!Spock, military!Kirk. http:///14468.html?thread=13478276)

55. Kirk’s Guilty Pleasure - Old Holovids About Vulcans by anonymous ('Jim pines for Spock and watches horribly inaccurate soap opera holovids featuring Vulcans, until Spock finds out.' It would be highly illogical not to educate the captain about the inaccuracy of the videos, would it not? Funny and so intentionally cheesy but so good. http:///15838.html?thread=14933726

56. Soul mates in every universe except apparently this one by anonymous ('Jim is pining for Spock, and could probably live (just) with this if it weren’t for the fact he keeps on being sucked into alternative universes where James Kirk and Spock are bonded and madly in love.' Both Jim and Spock are so heartbreaking about their feelings and how they don't see that the other is in love with them. Fem!Kirk (Jane) is THE BEST. Fem!Spock. Gender swap, or, more accurately, always a different gender. Alternate universes. Blatant pining and idiots in love. http:///15838.html?thread=15351774)

57. You're Grounded by orphan_account ('“What do you mean you’re grounding me?” Kirk asked, exasperated. “Look, Kirk, no one in Starfleet thinks you are anything less than a brilliant captain, but the fact of the matter is that this is the third time we’ve had to dock the Enterprise due to the extent of the damage you’ve incurred on her. That’s more times than half the men on this board ever had to dock their starship due to damage in their whole career! No one is willing to stand down to give you a ship, and Starfleet won’t let you on anyone’s ship because, let’s face it, somehow you’ll end up in charge.”' Basically Kirk destroys the Enterprise more than is humanly possible and is grounded on Earth during repairs. AOS, light slash)

58. Veritas by TheProblematique ('Captain James T. Kirk and Lieutenant Commander Spock are hereby charged with negligence and wanton misconduct due to their emotional compromise with each other.' Spock Prime outargues everybody on Kirk and Spock's behalf. Also, there are hidden plots and assassination attempts and past lovers being jealous and Vulcans being jealous and yeah you can probably guess which part of the sentence referenced to which part of Spirk. Pike is supportive but gleeful as fuck. Pike's mental age is approximately five and a half. Spock gets the talk from Bones, Uhura and the Navigation and Piloting Department, and Kirk from the Enterprise's Science Department.. The Engineering Department is staying out of it but totally taking bets. Spock Prime derives perverse enjoyment from Kirk having to talk to Sarek. There's humour and angst and h/c and fluff and schmoop – oh the schmoop. The story is long, it's over 180k words, but it's worth it. Every single word. It is so obviously a mustread, it hurts to have to point it out. AOS)

59. When soul meets body by theycallmesuperboy ('In 2194 TiMERS, devices that count down to the exact moment one meets their soulmate, are invented. In 2244, Spock's parents specially request a Matchmaker to be sent to Vulcan to give their son a TiMER. In 2249 Jim Kirk gets a TiMER as his first act of rebellion against his mom, who never wanted him to go through the heartbreak she did when losing her soulmate. In 2258 Jim Kirk is court martialed for cheating on the Kobayashi Maru sim, and makes eye contact with his soulmate. In 2258 his soulmate rejects him. OR: canon era Soulmate AU, where Jim and Spock are soulmates and EVERYBODY knows it.' Soulmate AU, soulmate timers. The hurt and the angst and oh the pain is so wonderfully done here. I'm a sucker for the emotionally angsty and hurtful fanfics, so this is an amazing fic. It's a rewrite of the reboot with soulmate AU, and it is an absolute mustread)

60. The One by verizonhorizon ('After the Kobayashi Maru hearing, Spock seeks out Cadet Kirk off Academy grounds to elucidate a few points. He expects a stimulating debate but finds more stimulation than he bargained for. Given that encounter, what would have happened if Spock had not marooned Kirk on Delta Vega?' Mental torture. Captain!Spock, later Captain!Kirk since Spock resigns his Captaincy of the USS Adamant, though I suspect he keeps the title)

61. Spice by eimeo ('It’s a question of biology. Vulcan biology. The problem with falling in love with a member of an insanely private species is that it just might take you the best part of a five year mission to work out that the feelings are requited. And then you might discover that he’s already decided that the two of you can never be together. And what are you supposed to do if he won’t tell you why?' Brilliant description of Kirk and Spock's first months commanding together and the resulting antagonism. This is beautiful and poetic and angsty oh so angsty, and gorgeous. The descriptions are a wonder. 'Kirk stands shoulder to shoulder by his dress-uniformed First—casually close, but also casually distant, and it occurs to him, suddenly, that this is how they’ve always stood: as colleagues, as friends and as lovers; almost—but not quite—touching, for all the years they’ve known each other. There was, quite literally, no other way for this to go but where it has gone, and he’s only left to wonder how it took him half a damned mission to realize it was love. Kirk feels a wide, easy grin melt the tension from his face and from the room in these final moments before Spock is called back to the transporter platform, back to their bridge: no wonder there are rumors about them.' This is the very definition of a slow burn. The one in which Kirk got married after the five-year mission to another Admiral, and she died, but her memory ended up living on. Mustread!)

62. Lyre, Lyre by vulcansmirk ('Kirk really should have expected this. He really, really should have. It seemed like the transporter malfunctioned every other time they used it. But it had been almost a year since the last major transporter fuckup, and he’d let his guard down. And now there were two Spocks.' AOS, Spock is divided like Kirk in that one good vs evil episode, except here it's Vulcan!Spock vs human!Spock)

63. Of Convenience by Annenburg ('Kirk needs to get married for political reasons. Spock offers himself as the logical choice.' I've read the first four chapters and can vouch that they are brilliant, but I cannot say anything for the other eight. There's an mpreg warning for later chapters)

64. This is Probably a Terrible Idea by statamater ('Pretty much everyone, given enough time, will want to screw Jim Kirk - species, gender, or previous sexual identity notwithstanding. So why the hell is it taking Spock so long to notice him?' Pining!Kirk, romance, AOS, slash, angst, humour, mind meld. Jim and Spock are being ridiculous. McCoy at least has the sense his mother gave him. Past Spock/Uhura)

65. Medical Leave (the Brain Bleach remix) by sabrina_il (marina) ('Bones makes a mental note to hang an emergency glass case of brain bleach in the infirmary.' AOS, gen, irregular pon farr)

66. Enterprising Young Men by amosanguis ('Kirk has a habit of adopting members of his crew. Spock is no longer amused.' First they adopt Sulu, then Chekov, then Riley. AOS, K/S, cute)

67. You've Got a Piece of Me by waldorph ('Seven months into their five year stint aboard the Enterprise, Jim's meld with Ambassador Spock comes back to bite him in the ass.' Jim Kirk undergoes pon farr for some reason, AOS)

68. This Is How You Remind Me by kianspo ('Jim invites Spock to his high school reunion for moral support.' First time, romance, fluff, schmoop, AOS)

70. Star Trek Reboot-Oneshot's by FallenQueen2 (Various Star Trek AOS oneshots. Chapter 17 has TOS meet AOS characters. Light K/S slash)

71. Sweetheart by demonkidpliz ('Five times James T. Kirk called Saavik 'sweetheart' and the one time he didn't.' Peter Kirk, Jim's nephew. Established K/S post-Turnabout Intruder. It follows from TMP to ST:VII. The first four chapters are cute, the fifth is kind of foreboding, and the sixth breaks your heart. TOS. Brilliant six-shot featuring Saavik, Peter Kirk, and others)

72. Rebel Hearted Prince by MultiplyingIcicles ('Prince Spock of Vulcan hadn't given much contemplation to the thought of marrying a noblewoman. He would rather study, maybe attend the Vulcan Science Academy. Cue Queen Amanda and her longing for her son to marry and have children. She arranges a ball for Spock's 18th birthday, inviting interplanetary dignitaries and Starfleet Admirals. At 18, Spock didn't think he'd ever find someone he found compatible, until a blond boy in the corner captured his attention with talk of temporal-spatial anomalies and Romulan conspiracies.' Prince!Spock)

73. My Husband, Attend by mightymads ('The encounter with V’ger gave Spock the answer the Masters of Gol could not. He seems content. It’s difficult to tell, so Jim has resigned himself to keeping distance. But then Spock proposes, which entails going to Vulcan, learning vows in Vulcan, wearing Vulcan robes - the whole nine yards.' TOS, set after TMP. Telepathy, Vulcan language and culture. IDIC vs xenophobia in Vulcan society. Traditional Vulcan weddings)

74. A Cross-Species Idiot's Guide to: Romantic Feelings by orphan_account ('...And this is why the entire Federation thinks that James Kirk and Spock are in love. No, really.' Hilarious, humour, epic romance through the universe, betting on the ship and including Pike. The Crew Doesn't Know What It Thinks It Knows. Oblivious!Spock, oblivious!Kirk, relationship manuals, bit silly, very much worth the read)

75. Wind-Up by shizuke ('Not fanfic, but fan comic. Kirk chickens out of confessing. So heartwrenching.' http:///16988.html)

76. Into the Dark by kototyph ('Spock might be Riverside's first ever vampire, but forgive Deputy Kirk for not being overly enthusiastic about it.' Vampire!Spock, telepathic!Uhura, empathic!Uhura, police!Kirk. Reminds me of Buffy a bit, but it is so brilliant. On permanent hiatus)

77. Some Cupid by summerofspock ('Tired of their childish fighting, McCoy sets out to set up Jim and Spock. Antics ensue. (i.e. that time i wrote Much Ado About Nothing using Kirk and Spock)' The 4,5 chapters were nice and smutless, the last half of the last chapter was just pure smut of mediocre quality. The fic in total was very nice though, and should be read. Oblivious!Spock, Oblivious!Kirk)

78. Not Yet (Now) by sunkissedmorning ('Five times James T. Kirk refused to surrender (and the one time he didn't)' Romance, fluff, some h/c and angst, cute, a bit of pining!Kirk, oblivious!Spock, stubborn!Kirk, AOS)

79. The Enterprise’s OTP (a.k.a nine people who were supposedly involved with Kirk and one who really was) by CinnamonSecrets ('Spock knew that working with humans would be challenging. However he wasn’t ready for the things the crew talked about the Captain.' Misunderstandings, oblivious!crew, gossip, AOS, not-so-implied Kirk/Spock slash. Also has Scotty/Uhura and Bones/hyposprays)

80. Things the Crickets Know by theplotholesmademedoit ('Most spouses have to worry about their in-law's approval of them. But in this case, it's Spock who doesn't quite approve of Winona.orWhere Winona hasn't been Mom of the past twenty-eight years, Spock quite explicitly defends Jim's honor and there is some cuddling. Also character reflection. And a companion piece coming up. It's better than it sounds I promise.' So gorgeous. This fic is angsty with a fair share of h/c, and it is so beautiful I might cry. AOS, BAMF!Spock)

81. The Slightest Slip-Up by Boldly_Gone ('Kirk and Spock accidentally reveal their relationship to the world when Jim steps on Spock's foot during a press conference.' So fluffy and cute. Kirk calls Spock 'honey' by mistake, and they kiss in public. Ish. Slash, obviously. AOS)

82. The Togetherness Thing by EntreNous ('When Lieutenant Sulu and Ensign Chekov both contract a mysterious ailment, Captain Kirk and the rest of the Enterprise's crew must rush to a system of planets that may hold the cure. OR, Jim Kirk has to deal with the fallout when Sulu and Chekov stop being best friends and basically suck all of the metaphorical sunshine off the Enterprise. And on top of that, it turns out Jim might not be as awesome at hiding his secret relationship with Spock as he thinks.' Light angst, K/S, Sulu/Chekov, accidental bonding, humour, friends to enemies, AOS)

83. Within Reach by littlebirdtold ('Four years into the Enterprise's voyage, Spock dies in a transporter accident on a routine mission. Jim slowly falls apart and develops an unhealthy obsession that, ultimately, brings Spock back.' AOS but so very well done. Painful and addictive and gorgeous fic. Spock is presumed dead though he's just trapped inside the transporter. Oblivious!Kirk, angst, fluff, h/c, straight!Kirk, obliviously pining!Kirk; everyone thinks they're together except Uhura who tells Kirk to stop dicking around with Spock's feelings. This is one of my favourite Star Trek fics and is a complete mustread!)

84. Xenolinguistics, Astrophysics, and Love: The Complete Education of a Starship Captain by chiralove ('If it was Spock Kirk was trying to pick up in that bar, instead of Uhura.' It's not that they're together often, or that he's seen them touching again, it's just that it isn't him with Spock. He's Jim fucking Kirk, and he's pulled out all his sweetest seduction routines, and Spock hasn't even batted an eyelash.' Genius!Kirk. Xenolinguistics, mathematics, literature, philosophy. Like half of the fic is about philosophy. Gorgeously written. Beautiful breakdown at the end, and it is kept so perfectly in-character and adheres to the reboot movie. A mustread!)

85. Aces and Spaces by WeSangDirges ('Jim has always been this way, at least as far as he knows. He’s never felt the need for those moments of passion - those hidden encounters in beds and dark rooms, on the dirt in the rows and rows of waving corn. He’s never burned for sex like the people around him seem to.' Asexual!Kirk, probably asexual!Gaila, asexual!Spock, asexual relationship. Powerful and incredibly well-written. Loved this story with all my heart. It managed to hit all my headcanons, so wow. Pon farr at the end, so angsty and painful and h/c. AOS. Mustread for asexual people – actually, mustread for everyone)

86. Fall Into Your Gravity by Jaylee1Toddler ('Spock and Jim meet at a Starfleet function and bond. One would think meeting one's soulmate at so young an age would make courtship fairly easy… Not so much. Features culture differences and two boys unwilling to discuss feelings.' Spock's emotions are heartbreaking. At first it's cute because kids. Then it's kind of sad and angsty because Jim wants so badly for Spock to just like him and talk to him normally, and then it's heartbreaking because you find out that Spock has loved Jim all along but has been brought up not to show it and it's such a massive communication failure, it's indescribable. And then it's cute again. AOS, pre-slash then light slash. Perfect. T'hy'la, Winona&Amanda, Sarek's A parenting. Mustread)

87. Spock, is that you? by TFALokiwriter ('Imagine losing all your friends and then, near to the end of your life, going into a alternate universe. Now imagine if you are one of those friends who sees their aged, logical Vulcan friend after appearing in the flesh from beyond the grave, somehow. Now, imagine, the whale probe comes earlier than it should and leaves neutralized starships in its wake.' Basically a family creates a transporter that somehow stores a person's soul when they teleport, and bring McCoy Prime to AOS, and Spock and McCoy Prime go humpback whale hunting. The AOS Enterprise crew is on different ships: Spock is captaining the Enterprise, Kirk is captaining the Saratoga (and went into stasis pods because their life support failed prob because of the probe), Scotty's helping fix the transporter, Uhura is First Officer to Spock, McCoy is on Earth living with Joanna, and Chekov and Sulu are married on the Scottendale. Oh, and McCoy Prime is Captain. And he is in is 60s though he remembers up until he died in his 140s. I love the bond between Spock Prime and McCoy Prime. Though Spock Prime is a bit OOC, that might be attributed to him being in his 160s and having lost basically everything and realized that emotions are not always to be shied away from. It does bother me that he does not speak formally, but I suppose that could be overlooked. A Romulan starship, in Klingon, captained by a Vulcan reality shifter with a Terran reality shifter SIC, goes on to travel back in time to kidnap a pair of humpback whales to save Earth. Loved the Trump cameo. Q is the grandfather of Admiral Janeway, and Jack Harkness is a Q. Spock and Q friendship. This is like the reverse universe in every way: Nimoy is playing Kirk and Shatner Spock, George is pregnant instead of Grace. Whale probe, starship problems, whale problems, time travel, best friends saving the world. AOS universe with some TOS characters, gen, past Spirk slash. Easily read, very much suggest you read this)

88. Harnessing Starfire by Sherza ('The Enterprise has a crew unlike any other. They are the best and brightest that Starfleet has to offer, the vast majority of them are painfully young, and they are largely untried. They are led by the most unpredictable and explosive duo that has ever graced Starfleet Command. All eyes are on the Enterprise, the boatload of children who succeeded where an entire armada failed. Depending on who you talk to, they are heroes, villains, or ignorant, blindingly lucky upstarts. After their rather explosive beginning, how will the Enterprise and her command crew fare?' AOS. Love this, and especially this Uhura. Winona's A parenting sucked. Kirk&Uhura friendship. BAMF!Uhura, BAMF!Kirk, Pike is Amused, Bones is a hypo-ninja, Chekov is a troll, Sulu is insane, Making Admirals Cry, T'hy'la, Spock Prime needs his Kirk, Bigotry and Prejudice, Xenophobia, attempted genocide, grief, PTSD, badassery, Kirkian Diplomacy, Pon Farr. Explains what triggered the xenophobia against Spock in Vulcans. T'Pau is an ancestor of Spock's. BAMF!Amanda because wow. Spock shared a parental bond with Amanda. BAMF!Sarek, Sarek is awesome. Logic can be twisted to basically say anything. Seriously, this Sarek is an amazing parent, and very protective. No T'Pring because Sarek out-logicked everyone. He is my new hero. Spock went to Starfleet with his parents' full approval. Uhura is awesome and totally not a bitch. 'Jim was literally incapable of giving up.' Jim actually being the one to enforce food breaks for a change. Very good characterization of a survivor of starvation and Tarsus IV. Bones is the one not eating or sleeping whenever there is an emergency. Komack is being an ass. I love the realistic description of the days following the destruction of Vulcan and the defeat of the Narada. Also, Kirk making Admirals cry is my favourite thing. BAMF!Chekov, playing up his innocence. Sorry, but Scotty's interrogation was THE BEST. The interrogations were described in just perfect length each: not too long-winded but not lacking in interesting or relevant details, either. Seriously, this is just as amazing, or even more so, than Atlas. AOS. An absolute mustread!)

89. Arguably Insane by Jaylee ('Kirk and Spock’s relationship through the eyes of another crew member.' AOS. The one with the spot-on funny descriptions, the neat OCs, and the voyeurism and coming without even touching themselves. http:///viewstory.php?sid=4551&warning=1)

90. 51 fic where Spock moves into Kirk’s quarters and members of the crew are given the first officer’s quarters, but leave after hearing Spock and Kirk have loud sex through the walls by anonymous (The title is basically the summary. Chekov found the solution: sound-proof earbuds. Chekov is adorably innocent and adorable in general. http:///14468.html?thread=14185092#t14185092. AOS)

91. Take Me (To Your Leader) by luminousbeings ('"My name is Spock,” says Spock. He stares at Jim’s hand until the Human finally drops it back to his side. “What do you want in return for your compliance as my Human hostage?” "The privilege of punching President Trump in the face?” Jim suggests.' Funny, modern AU, good prompt, AOS

92. More or Less by 1lostone ('Spock can never quantify his feelings for one James Tiberius Kirk.' A bit OOC on Spock's side, but tear-inducing nonetheless. Beautiful, AOS, Star Trek: Beyond)

93. Falling Objects by museaway ('The Nexus releases Kirk in the year 2254, but he soon realizes that this isn't his universe. Too many things are different, so many details are wrong. He prepares to face the future alone—until he's reunited with an old friend.' Kirk Prime/Spock Prime, Kirk/Spock. Q is kind and awesome in this fic. So wonderfully and heartbreaking and tragically wonderful. Mustread)

94. What Keeps Us Alive by girlofshadowsandstars ('The definition of life is somewhat relative.' Post-ST:B)

95. immense heaven by malfaisant ('After the party, Jim's feeling mopey, and Spock's feeling philosophical.' AOS, post-ST:B. Spock first makes a science analogy and recites a lot of laws, and then makes it work in real life. This essay gets A for practical application)

96. Catharsis (Conversations with the Crew) by YRU ('A few months on, a restless Spock is still unable to cope with his newfound sense of ineluctable loss. Even if he had not lost Jim altogether, the knowledge that he eventually would, and of how that would feel, gnaws away at him. As nightmares and flashbacks plague the half-Vulcan, logic points to emotion as the answer, and Spock finds himself — once again — pushed to his wit’s end by the enigma that is Jim Kirk. (In which Spock's conversations with his fellow crew members draw his feelings for Jim Kirk out.)' Post-ST:ID, AOS)

97. Favourite by yeaka ('Bones not seeing the writing on the wall brings it to light.' Post-ST:B, trio bonding but Spirk pre-slash, Bones being Bones. AOS )

98. Across The Universe by notfreyja, Straight_Outta_Hobbiton ('Most people don't give their best friend homework. Jimmy Kirk is not most people.' Pen pals!AU, pre-slash Spirk, really adorable, kid!Spock, young!Spock, kid!Kirk, young!Kirk, Kirk living onboard the Farragut, Kirk getting Spock drunk on chocolate. AOS. Part of a series)

99. You'll Get There in the End (It Just Takes a While) by seperis ('"Spock. Just say 'I don't trust Starfleet not to mess up the only captain in the fleet who I can train up to my expectations and enjoys running into danger wearing a blindfold as much as I do'."' The one where Spock has been running the Enterprise for Kirk for the first three months because he wanted for Kirk to get comfortable in his new position before making any changes, and Kirk feels like he is not allowed to do anything on his own damn ship, so he institutes bi-weekly meetings between him and Spock so that Spock can tell him 'what it is that keeps us from a quick but hideously painful death in by implosion in the vacuum of space', and so that Kirk can teach Spock about Star Wars references. Kirk also steals parts of Scotty's still so that Scotty will let him have some time alone with the warp drive for once. Nyota is an awesome third-in-command. The one in which Spock Prime had a bond with Kirk Prime, and the bond recognized Kirk and somehow copied over Spock Prime's pon farr down to the exactly same time window, and Kirk and Bones tried to contain it but failed, and Spock decided to adjust his pon farr cycle to match Kirk's and bond with him because affection and jealousy over Spock Prime and also because Spock feels that Kirk trying to hide his pon farr to protect Spock Prime from the consequences is illogical as hell. Jim Kirk goes through pon farr. Love the writing fashion and the time skips: the first scene begins at the end of the fic, the following scene takes place at the beginning of the fic, then we are back to somewhere after the first scene, and so on, until the beginning catches up with the first scene. It is chronologic yet very non-linear, and I love it. It is unique. A unique take on Kirk's Kobayashi Maru reasoning. The Kobayashi Maru was based on one of Spock's experiences when he was on a transport that came under attack and exploded and there was nothing anyone could have done to prevent that (it should be noted, however, that the captain of that ship was a coward). So no, Spock wasn't just being an asshole when he wrote that test. This is the first fic that actually defends Spock's side in this. 'No matter what you do, what you are, how hard you work, how far you've come, how much you are willing to give up, you will never be good enough. And there's nothing you can do to change that. The question the Kobayashi Maru asked was, what will you do if there is no chance of success? What will you do when every choice means failure? And my answer is, you only fail when you stop trying. A no-win only exists when you believe in it. Until then, everything is possible.' Kirk goes through pon farr because of Spock Prime's memories. Telepathy. AOS. Mustread!)

100. Ship's Night by Albukirky ('An unexpected incident prompted Jim Kirk to admit his feeling to the one person he truly loves.' Sweet oneshot, with very nice portrayal of the triumvirate, TOS, matchmaker!Bones of sorts. The one with Spock being unconscious in sickbay and Kirk confessing his love for Spock to Bones, unaware that Spock wasn't actually unconscious. Very good!)

101. Defending Vulcanity by WeirdLittleStories ('Kirk gets some advice about wooing Spock from an unusual source. (No, not McCoy. No, not Amanda. No, not Sarek. :-D)' Totally in fucking love with T'Janna. Love this take on a half-human half-Vulcan. Though she may seem like a Mary Sue, it is clear, if you think about it, that Spock is still the more awesome of the two, and that she serves as providing contrast and alternative choices of what Spock could have become, and honestly, I prefer Spock the canon way. Spirk pre-slash, Kirk is obvious, someone knocks their heads together. T'Janna is Spock's half-Vulcan half-human cousin on his mother's side, except she grew up on Earth, so she's a lot more expressive and identifies as human, while Spock identifies as Vulcan. Spock geeking out over unusual viri. Mustread)

102. They Say Vulcans Can't Lie by WeirdLittleStories ('James Kirk learns — in a somewhat unusual way — why people say that Vulcans cannot lie.' Vulcans cannot lie during mind melds, but everyone assumes they cannot lie verbally. Kirk is arrested on a newly-discovered planet and has to be married to a 'stable and strong mind', which Spock qualifies as. A unique twist on the marry-or-die scenario, with Kirk in the unfortunate role for once. Very good)

103. A Logical Form of Relationship by WeirdLittleStories ('Jim wonders why a relationship that can't produce offspring is accepted by Vulcans, and Spock explains how logical it is.' GODS THIS IS GENIUS. A lot of the stories I read have Kirk and Spock talking about the fact that their relationship won't produce any children, with one or both of them worrying that such a relationship will be seen by Vulcans as illogical. But it seems to me that putting together "MUST mate" with "Vulcan is a DESERT" with "Vulcans live for 200 years" leads to the conclusion that gay relationships would be not just accepted but actually encouraged. This deserves the Nobel Prize equivalent in Star Trek, because this is by far the best explanation for encouraged Vulcan homosexual relationships. Mostly dialogue. Mustread!)

Funny:

1. Don't Beam Me Up Scotty by Moirai ('There have been many times James T. Kirk has been beamed onto the Bridge in awkward and compromising positions and situations. These are a few.' Future K/S maybe, AOS)

2. 5 Interplanetary Postcards from the F5YM (1) by Artsada ('Five planets on or about which Spock was Not Impressed but everyone else mostly had a super awesome fun time, and one that made a great impression indeed.' Jim's way of naming planets is hilarious, and everybody on the Enterprise is insane. Spock gets drunk on hot chocolate, and Kirk is being nice. Also, Star Wars references. Hilarious.

Hilarious, funny, Spones)

8. The Enterprise Learns about Sexual Harassment by Philippa ('When an anonymous tip alerts Starfleet to possible sexual harassment on board the Enterprise, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy must endure a Fleet regulation lecture.' Hilarious. Reminds me of the James Bond fic where MI6 had the lecture. Add to that a Spock being asked to demonstrate flirting and you basically have this fic. Gen, TOS, wonderful oneshot. Oh, and the reason they even have the lecture is because the female computer – which insists on calling Kirk 'dear' – onboard the Enterprise felt like Kirk wasn't responding to her advances)

9. Compassion Is a Virtue (But I Don't Have the Time) by therev ('McCoy and Spock switch bodies. Things get out of hand.'

Then Scotty decided to keep it up, which encouraged the young teenager further and subsequently, the Enterprise as a whole. Which, still makes it Jim's fault. Kirk/Spock, Scotty/Enterprise, Spock/Science, Bones/hyposprays. The crew as a family, BAMF!Spock, mother!Kirk, father!spock, the Enterprise is on druugs, crazy uncle!Scotty.

The Five Times Spock Sent Kirk Running - And The One He Didn't by slytherin_heart ('Kirk keeps coming on to Spock, but Spock, who finds the whole thing illogical, is nervous under his placid facade, and ruins every moment when something is just about to happen — accidentally giving him the nerve pinch when Kirk leans in for a kiss, for example. Eventually, Kirk takes the safe route — shouting his intentions from across the room when Spock is least expecting it.' K/S, AOS, hilarious. Blatant flirting. http:///1886.html?thread=3408734#t3408734)

25. Of Nebulas and Reports by sonsofmogh (ToBeOrNotToBeAGryffindor) ('Stuck in a shuttlecraft for three hours on the most boring mission everywhere, Doctor McCoy does his best not to strangle the green-blooded menace to his sanity known as Spock.'

27. Shore Leave by chaletian ('It's been a difficult couple of months on Enterprise. There've been crew deaths, near-calamitous alien encounters (the last one a planet where the population thought they were gangsters circa 1920, which was dumb any way you looked at it), and the ship mysteriously running low on the ingredients for pie. They're all on edge. They're all expecting the worse. And then an away team beams down to a new class M planet with Mr Spock in command, and they check in sounding cheerful. Suspiciously cheerful.' Sort-of ice cream making the crew high. AOS, gen. Part of a series. This series has the AOS characters but references a lot of the funny TOS adventures.

32. Sleeping Spock, a Star Trek Fairy Tale by Kaat ShadowLover ('A retelling of the favorite classic, with a Star Trek twist.' Sleeping Beauty AU.

11. For Children are not only Illogical but Cruel by DeathByStorm ('I'd love to see Spock encountering some of his childhood bullies...

BAMF!Kirk)

12. A Starship Runs on Loyalty by KCS ('When the Enterprise is ordered to escort a xenophobic admiral back to Earth, the man discovers to his shock that James T. Kirk's crew is just a little protective of their First Officer...' BAMF!Spock, gen, TOS, xenophobia, very satisfying. BAMF!Spock, BAMF!Kirk)

Gen, BAMF!Spock, BAMF!Kirk, BAMF!Scotty, BAMF!Uhura, BAMF!everyone, xenophobia, TOS. The first chapter is hilarious because honestly, that's a regular TOS episode and this isn't even an exaggeration)

14. A Friend in Need by lahmrh ('An unexpected illness leads Kirk and Spock to a new understanding of their friendship.' This fic is wonderful and rare because it is gen but also has a mind-link between Spock and Kirk, and they remain friends. Asexual!Spock probably, hurt!Kirk)

25. Mau by WerewolvesAreReal ('Spock will always, always find it ironic that Sarek banishes Sybok for believing in a religion of which Spock might possibly – probably - be a part.' The fucked up fairytale AU. BAMF!Spock, eidetic memory. Dark!Spock. Seriously dark. He seems to be a mix of a dark demon and witch and vampire and shapeshifter, all while looking like a Vulcan. Later we find out that Spock is actually a Mau, not a Vulcan. 'We are born to every planet, at some point or another. Like old earth changelings, starting as a normal member of our species and then becoming... more, or less.' The ending breaks my heart. It is keeping with canon every step of the way, and at the end, when Kirk dies a canonical death, I could not have wished for a more tragic yet perfect ending. If this is a fairytale, it's not a light one. It's darker than a Grimm fairytale. The bird, oh, the bird. This is so dark and creepy and sad and almost brings tears to my eyes, but by all gods, if you're only going to read one Star Trek fanfic and want something so painful and delicious and perfect, make it this one)

26. Trepidation by MabelOverture ('Kirk had never felt such fear as he did when he realized his first officer had become the target of a malicious and unfamiliar enemy. Heavy features of McCoy and most other characters as well, because, well, the entire ship is a treasure.' Gods, it's brilliant.

"We stood by and saw your ancestors die, because they were too primitive? We stole whatever we thought profitable of your ideas and your arts, and gave them to our well-fed friends while their inventors starved?"' Gen, angst, hurt no comfort, ethics, pre-First Contact, Prime Directive, Kirk actually listens to the Prime Directive, friendship, very good)


Star Trek: Discovery:

TOS, gen, lots of angst, post-canon, after everything is said and done. Brilliant)

4. Let's Waste No Time by orphan_account ('Okay, so what if Jim sometimes crashes in Bones’ quarters if he’s too tired to make it to his own? And sure, sometimes they’re share a tray in canteen, but half the time it’s the only way he can get Jim to eat something that isn’t a Snackpack on the run to the bridge. A story in which Bones doesn't know he's in a relationship with the Captain.' Basically everybody knows Kirk and Bones are dating, except for Kirk and Bones. Funny, fluffy)

9. Balance of Loyalties by WerewolvesAreReal ('The Romulan Captain is almost a reflection of Spock's own father, Spock thinks, and he marvels over the resemblance right up until the Romulan ship explodes and the paternal bond he shares with Sarek is abruptly, sharply snuffed out.' What. But also perfect and exactly what I needed. Half-Romulan!Spock. The tags are pretty self-explanatory. Emotional angst and hurt. TOS, gen, angst Brilliant and a mustread)

10. Cain't Never Could by WerewolvesAreReal ('McCoy isn't too crazy about the Vulcan first officer on his new posting, the starship Enterprise, and has no hope of understanding him. Especially since the idiot has been dodging his mandatory physical for four months. "That's almost impressive," says Jim.' The stuff the crew uses the equipment for when not during emergencies is hilarious. Like Spock and a man's bet about the exact shape of snowflakes and the subsequent use of very careful transporter technology to confirm the hypothesis. The entire Science department adores Spock. BAMF!Spock, also BAMF!Bones. Also think about the fact that Spock is quite possibly the only Vulcan-human hybrid ever and spent a lot of time in hospitals as a subject, not even a patient. Spock&Bones gen bonding, TOS)

But between the number of people in the world, the distances between them, and the languages the names can be written in, it's not exactly easy to find one's soul mate.' Gen Spones, which is the best sort. Soulmate AU, TOS universe)

17. Where Did You Find that Picture? by the_author_at_221B ('Spock didn't like dealing with the doctor on a regular day. Leonard was much too illogical for his own good. Being regressed to a two year-old only serves to make the matter worse.' AOS/TOS, Spones pre-slash, kid!Bones, young!Bones, de-aged!Bones, adorable fluff)

In McCoy's absence, Spock comes to appreciate the doctor more and to better understand that his function on the Enterprise is not limited to his work as a physician.' Gen, TOS. Amazing story. One of my favourite Star Trek fics, as well as my headcanon. Has deep character analysis and an intriguing study in motivations and prejudice. Also analyzes Spock and Bones' relationship. Despite all that, a very light read. Mustread!)

22. Forgettable Embarressment by sherlocked221 (''Oh, he’d forgotten about last night. The shower, the sick, the naked Spock, the three or four too many drinking binge.

What Kirk sees on those tapes causes him to have a conversation with a certain someone...' TOS, gen, Bones-centric. Not entirely sure how to tag this. Theoretically, it'd qualify as light Bones-bashing, but honestly, it's not how it feels like.

Spock&Bones, crew suspects Spones slash, gift-giving. 'We are executing a social experiment on the conduct of the Enterprise crew.'

The Proposal by quietlyintoemptyspaces ('Spock reached out to take the padd from the doctor, fingers brushing innocently enough, but not innocent enough for McCoy, who raised his brow in an imitation of the full-Vulcan. “Spock, I do believe you just kissed me.” “Nonsense, doctor.”' Can be read as slash, though I prefer gen.

108. Through the Eyes of Another by Starkindler ('A transporter malfunction has interesting consequences for Kirk and Spock, who find themselves in a grave predicament before they can rectify the situation.'

125. Guardian by WeirdLittleStories ('As the sole Vulcan on board a ship bearing 429 humans, Spock has an obvious role to play. Yet this role should not become TOO obvious, lest this undermine the humans' confidence...' Character study. 'His role was to take as many of the risks to himself as possible, for he was far more likely to survive them. His role on the ship became First Officer, Science Officer... and Guardian.' Spock controls himself all the time, not least physically as not to damage the physically more fragile humans. Implied xenophobia. Very good)

Spones:

1. Dependency by walkingivy ('When Spock and Bones are trapped in a no-win scenario on a slave planet, they become closer than anyone would have thought possible.' Gen, later pre-slash and slash. Part V has mpreg, so skip that if that's not your thing. This fic is what embodifies the Spones ship to me, and honestly, I don't need to read any other Spones because this one is perfection and I don't need any other. TOS. Chapter 10 in part 3 explains Vulcan emotions and how they differ from humans'. Reminds me of the lightbulb/laser analogy pertaining to human/Vulcan sexuality. Engaging, plotty fic that follows Spock and McCoy’s relationship after Spock initiates a bonding mind-meld with McCoy to save his life. Followed by five more parts (of about similar length), which I also highly recommend reading. This is one of those lengthy, and really good fic epics that is perfect for a rainy day. Mustread!)

2. communication breakdown by dothraloki ('Or 5 times Jim thought Spock and Bones had a 'thing' and one time they really did.' Romance, friendship, misunderstandings, TOS, Spones)

3. The Last to Know by Dizzydodo ('When Leonard is fatally injured, Spock attempts to save him with a bond. Unfortunately, Leonard mistakes this for an act of duty, and all Spock's hints to the contrary go unnoticed.' Very good plot, good grammaar and flow. Somewhat long descriptions, but not unpleasantly so. Love the idea of a different kind of mind link than the one in Dependency. TOS, Spones, kind of accidental bonding, permanent injury, courtship, misunderstandings)

4. Lessons by madwriter223 ('Spock asks Leonard for advice on courting a human. Leonard does his best to comply.' Bones is head over heels for Spock and hurts because he assumes that Spock wants to court Kirk when in reality Spock wants Bones. Miscommunication, funny, romance, misunderstandings. Spones. Humour)

8. Honorable Enemies by Zauzat ('With the Enterprise battling Romulans in the neutral zone, Dr McCoy is finding his job increasingly unbearable. Spock may prove an unlikely ally.' The whole fic is realistic and kind of depressing and angsty and h/c but the last chapter is so cracky and hilarious. Gods, this is probably the single happiest future fic in star trek I've read. Y'know, the one in which Bones is a research fellow and Pike doesn't die and Spock becomes Ambassador. Also BAMF!Bones, the one in which he convinces Romulans that humans are honourable enemies, and Kirk and Pike father two half-Romulan daughters. Don't ask. Spones slash. Brilliant story. Very much worth the read)

9. House Rules by seashadows ('What if Leonard McCoy had sat next to Spock on the shuttle, instead of James Kirk?This is what might have happened.' Bones' remarks are lovely. Spock knows advanced biology, and is a result of 'a great deal of work'. Spock not being a morning person is the best thing ever. I mean, Spock is the exact opposite of a night person, and that is why this headcanon (him being a night person) is so awesome. Spock and Bones make much more sense as roommates that Kirk and Bones. Sick!Bones, caring!Spock. Genius!Kirk. Brilliant story, very much worth the read even though it's a permanent hiatus. programming class was my organic chemistry class. Spones pre-slash. Love it. Everyone should give it a read)

10. What's logic got to do with it? by deanniker ('Kirk genuinely liked the bridge of the Enterprise. It was a good place – nothing unexpected ever happened.

22. Clothing is entirely optional by amerasu1013 (amerasu_1013) ('Bones just knows it – Spock is out to torture him. As if it wasn't enough that the Vulcan was so hot, that pointy-eared bastard keeps running around completely naked and comments on the illogicality of Terran norms regarding clothing.

He resolves himself to stay as far away as possible, so he won’t blurt out anything dumb. He’s met Vulcans before and none of them liked him much. Illogical, they called him. Leonard knows enough about their culture to recognise it as an insult. Bastards."' Also, the one where Bones teaches Spock how to shave in a Georgian way. Angsty yet sweet. Spones slash, and one of the better ones. Bones doesn't return Spock's affections at first, but later changes his mind. AOS)

25. I Like You by yeaka ('Spock misinterprets everything. Sort of.' Genius!Kirk, caring!Spock. Spones slash. TOS)

Five Opinions McCoy Had About Spock That Turned Out To Be Exactly Backwards by belmanoir (This fic is a walking contradiction because it keeps a very happy and light mood but it is sad when it comes to Bones' thoughts and realizations. Bones is self-depricating at the end. Bit of Spock/Number One, though you don't realize it's her until you re-read the character tags. Very good though, and very much worth the read. TOS)

38. Left Behind by sleepymccoy ('An away mission gone wrong leaves McCoy stranded on a planet with little to no hope for rescue. He grudgingly accepts his fate and begins recording his log entries. Unbeknown to him, the Enterprise above is receiving his communications but are unable to respond. His boyfriend of a few months, Spock, is having a particularly hard time.' A bit primitive in the descriptions of the sexual content, but overall a very interesting idea. TOS, the one with the ship moving right for yes and left for no)

39. Surgeon's Mate by belmanoir ('Spock likes McCoy. McCoy won't take a hint.' Hilarious, fluffy, h/c. Tag to Bread And Circus episode)

40. possibly maybe by jadziad ('Having been stranded on an alien planet with an injured Spock, Bones thinks he's entitled to a little lunacy.' Star Trek: Beyond, cuddling, light kissing, AOS)

41. something borrowed, something new by kojafras ('Spock gives Leonard a tracking device. Leonard is less than thrilled.' Star Trek: Beyond, AOS. Adorable, gift-giving, pre-slash. Love the tags because that's basically the entire movie in three tags. Also, this oneshot is a mustread after ST:B)

42. In Vino Veritas by black_tea ('Bones over indulges at Jim's party and ends up losing his impulse control thus forcing him to face the truth of the situation between himself and his Vulcan shipmate.' So very cute and adorable. Has equally cute sequel. One of my favourite Spones fics. Post-ST:B. Mustread)

43. if he were i'd burn my study by brinnanza ('There are plenty of doctors on Yorktown, plenty of non-Bones doctors who haven’t just been through the trauma of traipsing around a hostile planet, getting shot at, and saving the goddamn day (again -- and isn’t that just so typical of his life), but he finds himself outside of Spock’s temporary quarters anyway, unable to chase away the concern simmering in his head.' Kind of implied Spones but also so very intimate. Fabulous. Love this. Missing scene. Post-ST:B)

44. I'm happy if you're happy by Wiccan507 ('Leonard McCoy just needed the advice of his best friend. Of course, nothing ever does run smooth for him and now Spock thinks he likes Jim, but he really loves Spock. Too bad, Spock is in love with someone else.' Love confessions and pining all around. Heartbreaks and mended hearts. Spones all the way. Post-ST:B)

45. Clutter by imightbespock (the_author_at_221B) ('He started to flip through the book quicker now, glancing at all of Spock’s drawings. Some had more detail than others, some were in color. But every single one of them involved him somehow. He ignored the flutter in his stomach at that thought.' Established Spones, sleepy!Bones, fluff, drawings, seems to be post-ST:B)

46. Confessions by nepas ('It is the night of Jim's birthday party and all Leonard can think about is Spock and what he means to him. When Leonard and Spock are finally alone, Leonard begins to confess his feelings for him, only to be interrupted, so he drops the subject. Spock has had enough of this nonsense and finally decides to confess his feelings for Leonard in the best way he knows how.' Angst and fluff, Bones pining over Spock, Jim's birthday party, first kisses, love confessions, Spones, post-ST:B, very much worth a read)

47. Doctor's Orders by Kisaru ('“Normally, I’m not one to play doctor. But,” McCoy says, leaning over to place his hand on Spock’s knee, “You drive me to do things I normally don’t do.” or 5 Times Bones ends up playing "doctor" with Spock and the One Time he's doing his job but Spock has an unintentional reaction.' WIP so far, but seems good. Post-ST:B)

48. Spoilers by tprillahfiction ('Don't you hate when you're about to watch a movie and some jerk spoils the ending for you?' Stalker!Spock, kind of creepy!Spock, but it's still cute in an odd way. Bones' necklace, Kirk's POV, established Spones, post-ST:B, Starbase Yorktown, fluff. AOS)

49. Five Times Spock Was Interrupted While Trying to Confess His Love for McCoy and One Time He Wasn't by therev ('To be fair, he could have tried a lot harder, or spoken a bit faster.' I expected it to turn angsty at the end, like Spock confessing to a dead Bones, but it's all fluff. Every single scene. So very cute. TOS)

50. Purple by PeterHaleforAlpha ('Just a little additional scene with Bones and Spock when they are trapped on this planet.' Post-ST:B. Spock's favourite colour is purple. Pre-slash. AOS)

51. and all the stars will bow by imaginehux ('Spock joins a week-long conference in Yorktown and stays with the Sulus. Of course, trouble finds them.' The one with the plants and vegetation native to Vulcan being unable to grow on New Vulcan and the Vulcans having to find a solution to that. Demora, Sulu's daughter, found the solution: hanging the trees upside-down). Post-ST:B. Dem is adorable. The Vulcan way of catching up is very practical: a mind meld. Jim is platonically addicted to Spock. A bored Jim is a Jim who's a hazard to himself and to people in his vicinity. Dem braids Spock's hair. This whole fic screams adorable. Domestic Spones fluff. Bones loves Spock, Spock loves Bones, Jim is Jim, Spock is an adorable uncle, and Spock and Sarek get along very well. Very good fic. AOS)

52. Needs Answered by AFKAB ('In the wake of Star Trek: Beyond, Leonard McCoy can tell Spock and Uhura's relationship isn't going to last. Feeling a little lonely himself and understanding how painful it can be to lose at love, he makes a plan to befriend Spock in order to help him get over his impending breakup. He believes he just doesn't want Spock to retreat from humanity and shut himself away behind his stoic Vulcan facade... but he doesn't realize how recent events have begun to change his feelings toward his Vulcan colleague and nemesis. Nor does he anticipate the Machiavellian cleverness of Jim Kirk in manipulating them both to throw them together. Or is his captain's helpful meddling just a colossal coincidence? McCoy can't be sure...' Spones friendship and pre-slash, later probably slash. Past Spock/Uhura. Matchmaker!Kirk. Spock getting drunk on chocolate and licking his fingers in front of Bones, which might be a bit dirty by Vulcan standards. Post-ST:B. AOS)

53. Mess With My Heart by Jenfly ('McCoy wasn't sure if he was imagining it or not but it seemed there was some curiosity and surprise in Vulcan's eyes as he gazed down at his necklace.' Post-ST:B, very good, Bones' necklace. AOS)

54. Genuine Intentions by Spones-in-my-bones (KoruLunan) ('Spock and Leonard being stuck under the mistletoe during the crew's holiday party. Spock's green blush as Jim wolf-whistles at the two of them in encouragement. Leonard turning beet red as he sputters and tries to move away and make excuses only to be stopped by Spock's hand around his wrist. Spocks fingers brushing quickly against Leonard's in a Vulcan kiss as Spock kisses Leonard's check before quickly walking away. Leonard's dumbfounded silence as he watches Spock leave before chasing him.' Cute. AOS)

55. Why is Bones Wearing a Necklace at the End of ST: Beyond? by Trista_zevkia ('After a necklace becomes a plot point, you kind of wonder why Bones is strutting around in one. Or at least, I did, and this is one answer.' Platonic Spones, post-ST:B, neat. AOS)

56. Our Doubts Make Us Traitors by LogicalBookThief ('Dealing with what did and didn't occur on Altamid leaves McCoy incapable of sleeping. Paying his most recent patient a visit seems to be the only cure.' Post-ST:B, very good sequel to ST:B. AOs)

57. For Diamonds, For Dust by killingmonsterswritingthings ('After Altamid, Leonard can't stop thinking about Spock calling him by his first name.' Love confessions, post-ST:B. '“Ah, I love my emotionally constipated crew,” Jim sighed.' Brilliant. AOS)

58. Not So Unfortunate Circumstances by MeganMoonlight ('After a meeting with people from planet Miar-V, where possibilities of an alliance were discussed, McCoy and Spock end up stranded on the planet with no way to contact the Enterprise. Dealing with this situation was difficult... but it could have been worse.' Survival, stranded, getting together, banter, emotions, Spones pre-slash and slash, very good. The one in which Spock says that they shouldn't get into a relationship while high on adrenaline from being stranded on an alien planet. Sweet ending. AOS)

59. The Pretty Little Horses by carmineeyes ('For once, the Enterprise isn't the only ship available in an emergency.' TOS, very short but very good)

60. Of Sleepy Time Rituals and Their Repercussions by imma_redshirt ('After drinking tea with strong side effects, McCoy kisses Spock on the cheek, and causes two days of awkwardness between them.' TOS, fluff, drowsy tea, accidental kisses, mustread)

61. Fear by RunningIntoTheUnknown ('This is why Leonard McCoy sometimes wished he didn't have emotions. He sometimes wished he was more like the Vulcan that he constantly antagonized. The Vulcan that despite everything he said, he actually loved.' AOS, unrequited love, onesided Spock/Bones except then not really because it is a happy ending)

62. Forget-me-not by therev ('The end of a story. McCoy is a night person. He prefers even a simulated nighttime over any other kind of morning. Spock waits until the Enterprise lights are dim and finds him in med bay. Spock has something to tell him.' Blue eyes in Vulcan history, blue eyes as compared to a forget-me-not and Earth's atmosphere. Turn-about flirting and love confessions of sorts. So very sweet and very much like them. AOS)

63. moonlight and mess halls by empresshoshisato ('Spock and McCoy get some dinner after a long shift. It turns out to be quite the night, complete with dancing and fluffy kisses.' TOS, no angst, fluff, kissing, neck kissing, probably first kiss but could be read as established relationship. Amazing oneshot)

64. For the World is Hollow and I Have Touched the Sky (Part 1) by greenbloodedcomputer ('After the events of 'For the World is Hollow', Leonard confronts Spock about his lack of care for almost losing his mate.' Some h/c, but mostly fluff)

65. Hello, Pot Meet Kettle by Ster J ('Spock and McCoy are brought up on fraternization charges.' The one in which Spock and Bones are accused of a relationship by an ensign, except they're just cooking a Vulcan vegetable dish, except they're also secretly dating)

66. Appearances by LittleMissReaper ('Spock and McCoy are fighting on the bridge again, Kirk, Scotty, Uhura, Chekov, Sulu and the rest of the bridge crew watch in amusement, concern, satisfaction, curiosity and fear respectively.' TOS, technically Spones pre-slash, but everybody knows that it's going to turn into slash at any moment – or at the nearest shore leave, which, incidentally, is very soon)

67. Nope by yeaka ('Bones and Spock pick a terrible time and place to bicker.' Maybe post-ST:B, but you're free to read it regardless of having seen the movie. First kiss. The 'mission' was actually an exercise with the Enterprise crew for future missions. Brilliant characterization. AOS)

68. By My Side by Jenfly ('”You already have helped me by being here when I need you the most.”' Post-ST:B, established Spones, hurt!Bones, h/c, drama, fluff, romance, nightmares, AOS)

69. Lab 7 by tprillahfiction ('Spock and McCoy commiserate in their favorite lab about Kirk's penchant for entertaining many different women.' Non-explicit Spirk slash, later Spones pre-slash because Kirk is kind of an ass. Probably pre-AOS TOS fiction)

70. Out Of Mind by milkywaymidnight ('So everyone thinks that Spock & Jim are practically space married now and are okay with it, even Uhura doesn't really protest. Everyone that is, except for McCoy, who's fallen in love with, Spock. What's poor Bones to do now?' Technically it's Spirk in the beginning, and then develops into Spones and Kirk/Uhura. Post-ID. TOS)

Actually he had pretty much given up on the whole 'finding love' thing. But of course nothing had ever gone as planned.' AOS, post-ST:B, friendship, feelings, Spones pre-slash and slash)

74. The Placebo Effect by IntuitivelyFortuitous ('Alright, maybe he should listen to Spock more often. Maybe he should not drink anything that gets put in front of him. In his defense, it was purple and sparkly no human with a decent sense of curiosity could resist at least a sip. He didn't expect it to give him a sixth sense, though.' Flirting, TOS/AOS, Spones, pre-slash, drug-induced telepathy, bonding (non-permanent), flirting, cute)

75. New Friend by androgynousclintbarton ('Spock comes back from his shore leave with a new pet.' Spones preslash and slash, AOS, Sehlat, cute)

76. Gingerbread Rocks by Adenil ('Joanna has her suspicions about how her Dad feels about Mr. Spock, but she's can't very well ask when they're in the middle of making a gingerbread house.' Spones, TOS, Christmas, gingerbread houses, fluff, winter, family)

77. How to Woo A Vulcan by Spones-in-my-bones (KoruLunan) ('McCoy let out a sigh of relief as he ran his hand through his already disheveled hair. "I'm still trying to find things out. About us. I can't exactly woo you like other people, Spock." " 'Woo', Doctor?" A flush of red colored McCoy's cheeks.' Spock/Bones, TOS)

78. Why, Mr. Ford by sleepymccoy ('Scotty and Bones are hanging out in the transporter room when a Lieutenancy interrupts them in a very unpleasant way. Then Spock joins the fray.' BAMF!Spock/Bones, TOS)

79. Familiar by starstrung ('The Romulans really need to stop shooting at their artificial gravity systems.' Fake marriage of sorts. Crazy adventures. Telepathy erotic dreams because of Spock. Zero gravity. BAMF!Spock/Bones, TOS)

Enterprise headcanons:

1. Above and Beyond the Call of Duty by Closet Scrawler ('Kirk must rescue Spock from a diplomatic... error. ' Fucking hilarious fanfic. TOS, gen)

2. Rules and Regulations by WerewolvesAreReal ('Other people always seem to be in awe of Spock's perfect poise and control. But then, those people don't have access to his reports. Humor.' Spock is either the best damn officer in the 'Fleet and knows that his both positions require him to have differing priorities, or he is batshit insane. Probably both. First Officer!Spock keeps denying Science Officer!Spock the science supplies. Hilarious. TOS. Gen)

3. Physician, Heal Thyself by WeirdLittleStories ('When McCoy is temporarily assigned to an all-Vulcan ship, he learns some things about himself, Spock, and Vulcans that enable him to grow and change and become a better man. In McCoy's absence, Spock comes to appreciate the doctor more and to better understand that his function on the Enterprise is not limited to his work as a physician.' Gen, TOS. Amazing story. One of my favourite Star Trek fics, as well as my headcanon. Has deep character analysis and an intriguing study in motivations and prejudice. Also analyzes Spock and Bones' relationship. Despite all that, a very light read)

4. D'You Really Need To? by sleepymccoy ('Spock&Bones friendship, despite what the tags say. Spock uses Bones' bathroom and 'discovers' Bones and Scotty's still, although he already knows about it. Gen, TOS)

5. Between Warp 2 and 3 by Momosportif ('A mysterious malfunction results in Scotty and Spock being imprisoned in the board room. An illogical way for two senior officers to spend four hours, but perhaps it can provide Spock with a serious answer to one of Kirk's silly questions.' What people do during boring bridge shifts. Bones bowls with hypospray containers and his stress ball. Gen. My favourite Spock&Scotty friendship fic. TOS)

6. Hindsight by LadyRhiyana ('Later generations will say many things about James T. Kirk. Character study.' Simply beautiful. TOS, gen. BAMF!Kirk)

7. Melody by icarus_chained ('James Kirk and Nyota Uhura have a quiet moment of shared understanding while listening to Spock and McCoy bicker.' Gen, TOS, very pleasant oneshot, Spock&Bones friendship. Headcanon)

8. I Knew Him First, I Knew Him Last by Heather Snow ('Scotty and Chekov's reflections after Spock's death and restoration in The Wrath of Khan and The Search for Spock.' Spock&Scotty, Spock&Chekov, gen, very profound and nice)

9. An Easy Life by Isilarma ('No one ever said being a CMO was going to be easy. McCoy attempts to keep his senior officers out of trouble. Attempts being the operative word.' AOS/TOS, gen, Kirk being an idiot, Bones-centric)

10. /post/129556547248/entilzorange (BAMF!Bones, captured but rescued himself, TOS)

11. Idiomatic by WeirdLittleStories ('Kirk has trouble believing that Spock doesn't understand common idioms, so Spock explains why he pretends not to.' Neat, some bonding, explanations of the social roles of foreigners)

12. Strength Training by WeirdLittleStories ('When Spock's biobed readings are anomalous, Spock has to explain certain aspects of Vulcan life to Kirk and McCoy.' Wow. This is actually quite dark and creepy and absolutely something that could happen on Star Trek. Spock, and all Vulcans, deliberately torture themselves mentally to maintain mental control. Kirk&Spock&Bones. The author lives up to their nickname)

13. Fire and Water by KCS ('Five reasons why the crew of the Enterprise have a healthy respect for the combined powers of Commander Spock and CMO McCoy, and once reason why the Captain only rolls his eyes and doesn't ask for details.' Gen. Spock&Bones. TOS)

14. It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time by FunkyFish1991 ('It's been a hard couple of days. All Scotty wants is a sandwich.' AOS, gen, Spock&Scotty friendship)

15. The Enterprise Learns about Sexual Harassment by Philippa ('When an anonymous tip alerts Starfleet to possible sexual harassment on board the Enterprise, Kirk, Spock, and McCoy must endure a Fleet regulation lecture.' Hilarious. Reminds me of the James Bond fic where MI6 had the lecture. Add to that a Spock being asked to demonstrate flirting and you basically have this fic. Gen, TOS, wonderful oneshot. Oh, and the reason they even have the lecture is because the female computer – which insists on calling Kirk 'dear' – onboard the Enterprise felt like Kirk wasn't responding to her advances)

16. Five Lines That Never Received The McCoy Seal of Approval (and one that made him famous) by stepstostars ('Wherein Leonard does not approve of any of his crew's (now popularized) catchphrases and lines.' So fabulously in-character and remarkably gen. A pleasure to read. Gen. TOS)

17. A Starship Runs on Loyalty by KCS ('When the Enterprise is ordered to escort a xenophobic admiral back to Earth, the man discovers to his shock that James T. Kirk's crew is just a little protective of their First Officer...' BAMF!Spock, gen, TOS, xenophobia, very satisfying. BAMF!Spock, BAMF!Kirk)

18. Transfers by WerewolvesAreReal ('One-shots about different crew transferring onto/off Enterprise. Mostly humor, some other types.' Gen, BAMF!Spock, BAMF!Kirk, BAMF!Scotty, BAMF!Uhura, BAMF!everyone, xenophobia, TOS. The first chapter is hilarious because honestly, that's a regular TOS episode and this isn't even an exaggeration)

19. A Friend in Need by lahmrh ('An unexpected illness leads Kirk and Spock to a new understanding of their friendship.' This fic is wonderful and rare because it is gen but also has a mind-link between Spock and Kirk, and they remain friends. Asexual!Spock probably, hurt!Kirk)

20. Color Me a Vulcan by KLMeri ('A short Halloween drabble. Spock does not appreciate McCoy's Halloween costume.' Vulcan!Bones, pirate!Sulu, witch!Uhura, zombie!Chekov. TOS, gen)

Spock's Revenge by Gyptian ('Kirk had no clue anything was wrong until his best friend stormed into the mess hall, red-faced, and waved a PADD in the face of his other best friend, who had been eating a Vulcan variation on crackers with lettuce across from him.' Humour, character study. Seriously hilarious. Gen, AOS. The one in which Spock was supposed to write a personal diary about his feelings, and ended up programming his computer to do it instead)

22. The Least Favorite Task by afteriwake ('Kirk has put off doing his captain's logs for nearly two months and Spock is trying to get him to do them. Kirk, however, is not really all that enthused by the task...' Sweet, gen)

23. Captain's Log by icarus_chained ('A tiny Kirk & Spock conversation about how Kirk apparently sometimes forgets to fill out the log correctly. We all know who's the real captain on this ship, don't we?' Hilarious, dialogue only)

24. Technical Support by Alexis Seven ('This communication may be monitored and or recorded for quality and training purposes.' Gen, humour, biobeds, TOS)

25. Away Missions 101 by Nemo the Everbeing ('That handy guide every Red-Shirt should read before embarking on their first, and probably last, away mission.' Implied Spones slash, funny)

26. Sub Rosa by Janice_Lester ('Jim snoops about in the message buffers, seeing what his crew are writing to each other when they're supposed to be working.' Implied Spones slash, otherwise gen. AOS. Light and humorous)

27. The Thing by madwriter223 ('Working in the Science Department was a dream come true. This, unfortunately, was not her day. At all. Commander Spock was going to kill her.' TOS/AOS, hilariously cracky gen. A... thing, was created by one of the scientists, and now it's trying to mate with the ship. Yes, seriously)

28. Picking Up The Pieces by Fawlke ('After Spock and Khan’s epic fight. Spock should really get his injuries seen to.' AOS, BAMF!Spock, Spock&Bones, Kirk&Spock)

29. The Gift by KCS ('Scene set just after Journey to Babel. Amanda Grayson-Sarek watches her son as he cares for his recovering captain, and the Captain indirectly offers her a rare gift.' So much friendship and bonding. It's so sweet and covert and adorable and fluffy. Brilliant, no-slash, TOS)

30. Clothes Make the Man by KCS ('Five times Spock wore something other than his uniform, and one time he was only too glad to put the uniform back on.' Last chapter technically an AOS crossover. Mostly gen, character study, TOS)

31. Gifts by KCS ('Five times Jim and Spock gave each other something, and one time it wasn't necessary.' Gen. Beautiful, TOS)

32. Symbiosis by KCS ('Five times Spock's Vulcan characteristics saved his human crewmates, and one time those crewmen's human characteristics returned the favor.' Gen. Here be crack, fluff, a dash of H/C, and heaven only knows what else. TOS)

33. Protector and Protected by ArwendeImladris ('Six times Jim was the protector, and the one time he was protected.' Implied K/S slash or passionate friendship, Vulcan bullying, Frank being an ass)

34. Of Enclosed Quarters and Eight-Legged Creatures by LeandraLocke ('Kirk and Spock are trapped in a chamber in an ancient city of ruins and have to wait to get rescued. An easy task, if only someone didn't have a rather inconvenient problem...' Pre-slash, phobias, h/c, claustrophobia, arachnophobia)

35. A Comfort to Share by klmeri ('When Jim discovers an unusual arrangement between Spock and McCoy, he doesn’t know what to think… until McCoy explains.' Spock&Bones friendship, gen, TOS)

36. sticks and stones (can't break my bones) by penultimatepanic ('It's all fun and games until somebody gets his (supposedly) nonexistent feelings hurt.' Because seriously, Spock must've been hurt by lots of people during his childhood, not to talk of the experiments done on him. Friendship, gen, TOS, Spock&Bones. Spock's trigger word is 'mule', which is kind of obvious why)

37. Courage of Conviction by icarus_chained ('In the aftermath of Sarpeidon, Spock and McCoy have a conversation about McCoy's tendency to prod Spock into excess emotionality and why that really mightn't end well. McCoy understands that, he does, but that doesn't mean he thinks he ought to back down.' Spock&Bones, friendship, gen, TOS)

38. Dante's Slumber Party by monsieurkittentoes ('When an away mission lands Leonard, Jim, and Spock in a motel with one bed, Jim suggests they share.

39. Reining In McCoy by WeirdLittleStories ('A delegation of Bridge officers approaches Kirk and asks him to review the security tapes from several incidents when Kirk was in trouble and Spock was in command. What Kirk sees on those tapes causes him to have a conversation with a certain someone...' TOS, gen, Bones-centric. Not entirely sure how to tag this. Theoretically, it'd qualify as light Bones-bashing, but honestly, it's not how it feels like. What it does feel like, is Kirk finally getting fed up with Bones' disregard for Spock's feelings and the ship's safety being risked during crisis because of Bones, and talking Bones down. I suppose it also qualifies as Spock&Bones, as well as Kirk&Bones)

40. Flower Chains by madwriter223 ('De-aged Sarek and Amanda.' TOS, gen, Sarek/Amanda, Sarek&Amanda, fluffy, flower chains, blomsterkransar. Young!Sarek, kid!Sarek, deaged!Sarek, deaged!Amanda, young!Amanda, kid!Amanda)

41. Close encounters of the tenth kind by tanhayk ('The Enterprise is stuck in space after a difficult battle, with most of the energy gone, until someone responds to their distress signal. Only, it's not exactly a Starfleet vessel.' Doctor Who crossover, TOS, gen. Spock seems to understand the TARDIS technology. Also, I love how positive everyone here is)

42. Offerings on the Vine by klmeri ('Spock's and McCoy's suspicious behavior catches the attention of the Enterprise crew. What could they be up to?' TOS, gen. Spock&Bones, crew suspects Spones slash, gift-giving. 'We are executing a social experiment on the conduct of the Enterprise crew.' Theoretically, it's a scientific study, but I'm at least 65% certain they just like trolling people. An interesting study of the gossip mill)

43. Anything yours can do, mine can do worse. by impulsereader ('Drs McCoy and Watson meet and commiserate over all the trouble their friends end up dragging them into.' Bones-centric, crossover with Sherlock. Kirk&Spock&Bones, Sherlock&John, gen, TOS, non-slash)

44. Making History by Domina_Temporis ('Long after their days aboard the Enterprise, Ambassador Spock and Admiral McCoy are called together to witness the beginning of a new era.' TNG crossover. TOS, gen, Spock&Bones, some implied angst)

A Letter Concerning Toleration by igrockspock ('In which Spock spends the summer before his first year at Starfleet Academy encamped in a shitty apartment, attempting to explain his refusal to attend the Vulcan Science Academy.' Fabulous and formal language, spot-on Spock characterization. BAMF!Spock. TOS/AOS)

47. Nothing Left to Lose by igrockspock ('Spock waits exactly 12.2 seconds before refusing the Vulcan Science Academy's offer of admission.' TOS/AOS. BAMF!Spock, rebellious!Spock. Could be considered a prequel to the story above, though both are stand-alones as well)

48. Human Weakness by Isilarma ('Spock continues to learn how to deal with illogical humans.' Enemies to almost friends, AOS, gen, Spock&Bones, tired!Bones, awesome!Chapel)

49. Reality Bites by igrockspock ('The fifth time the Enterprise slips into an alternate reality, Captain Kirk wants to stay.' The reality is so much worse because it is so much better than AOS, it's TOS, and nobody is allowed or can stay, and that's why it is so painful. AOS with references to TOS and Mirror!verse)

50. The Undiscovered Country by schweet_heart ('Kirk, Spock and Bones meet up in the afterlife.' Tribute to Leonard Nimoy. Live long and prosper. Life after death. Afterlife. Kind of a fix-it. TOS, gen. Kirk&Spock&Bones)

51. In the Line of Duty by Closet Scrawler ('A collection of introspective one-shots devoted to the crew of the U.S.S. Enterprise.' Gen, TOS, Kirk&Spock&Bones&crew. The same author as Above and Beyond the Call of Duty)

52. Expressed DNA by WeirdLittleStories ('Dr. McCoy is grumping again because Spock doesn't act like the half-human McCoy knows he is. Nurse Chapel gives him another way to think about the matter, with some help from Kirk and M'Benga.' Gen, possibly Spirk pre-slash, depending on level of squinting, implied Chapel crush, musings on Vulcan biology. Episode references to stated Vulcan facts, which is awesome because crossreferencing. This would also explain Bones' improved attitude)

53. Episode Epilogues by WeirdLittleStories ('This is a series of missing scenes that add to — or resolve — the events of the episodes. Many (but not all) of those missing scenes will involve a meeting between Kirk and Spock to talk over the events of the mission after the conclusion of the episode. I'm intending these stories to focus mostly on the relationships among the characters but with no overt romance.' TOS, gen, episode codas)

54. An Embarrassing Savior by WeirdLittleStories ('When Spock is attacked by a creature that kills telepaths by consuming the energy of telepathic minds, Kirk tries many things to save him. Later, the boys work on saving Vulcan from an unusual threat.' Fic with a plot. Kirk&Spock&Bones. Hurt!Spock, BAMF!Spock. TOS. Spock, the only true prejudice-free advocate of IDIC. The virus is a mindworm, a creature that feeds on telepathic energy, which is found in telepaths. It was administered by an assassin who wants to kill all Vulcans and ran a trial on Spock. Bones force-fed Spock chocolate, which contains the amine phenethylamine (aka 'the love chemical'), which knocked out his telepathic abilities and forced the mindworm to leave his body. It unfortunately only works on hybrids, which means it only works on Spock. Kirk decides to get Sarek's help. Also, Starfleet is a suspect in this, and the Talosians are somehow involved. Very engaging story, WIP, gen)

33. Harry Potter and the Unforgivable Tournament by questionablequotation ('Harry asks an obvious question during his first class with Professor Moody... and everything changes.' At first I wasn't sure whether to put it under humour or under angst, as it is a very realistic and scarily dark analysis of the wizarding world, poorly disguised as a parody, but then I thought that the good outweighed the bad. Very well-written.)

49. Adventures in Child Care and Other One Shots by Perspicacity (chapter 6 has Severitus and reverse!Severitus in one. Suffice to say, it is mindscrewing. Chapter 10 has Sirius giving Harry The Talk. It is... oddly educative. Also, it's the exact opposite of how The Talk is probably supposed to be given, but that just makes it that much more awesome. Chapter 16 has a very dark!Harry who seeks retribution and revenge for Luna's death. There is a lot of subterfuge and backstabbing and betrayal going on)

59. Inspiration Strikes Again by Monopoly ('Salazar Slytherin learns that being a responsible adult is hard. Godric Gryffindor learns that dealing with a hyperactive adult is hard. Harry Potter learns that telling the truth never gets you anything worth having. A fun and educational fic.' Indeed it is. In this, Salazar is the one with ADHD and Godric is the responsible one.

Harry/Ron pre-slash. GoF AU. Then they switch it up, a lot. Harry dances with Hermione a few times, and then with Cho, Viktor, Cedric, Fleur, and Joséphine at least once each. He also dances with Ginny and Lavender, and then Neville because why not. By the time they finally stumble off to actually eat something, Harry’s head is a whirl of music and steps, and he has the taste of liquid courage leftover on his lips, because Joséphine carries a flask and apparently Beauxbatons kids don’t call it a party unless there’s a good potion or drink flowing.'

9. Walk On Water by Dark Eyed Seer (similar to 'Unholy' but slightly lighter)

10. The Rise of Potter-Black by xoxlollipopxox (not WBWL, dark!good!Slytherin!Harry, the whole schmuck; very much worth your time)

11. Dark Marauder by BajaB (What if the Marauders were as dark as their background history would make them seem?)

12. Absolute by 666Cliche ('Power corrupts. Absolutely. Harry Potter finds the Death Note and resolves to use it to save the world. Dark!Harry.' An absolutely brilliant description of Harry's slow fall into darkness and the corruption of his morals)

13. Elementary Calculations by kcourtkat ('After finding out about his magic earlier, a decidedly non-Gryffindor Harry Potter plots his way to success.' Harry does not want to go to Hogwarts but is literally forced by Dumbledore's machinations, and takes up chatting with Voldemort and ruining Dumbledore's reputation as his new pastimes. Ravenclaw!Harry)

14. I'll Show You A Sweet Dream Tonight by Cryptkeeper (Necromancer!Harry, insane!Harry, time travel, flirting with Voldemort at the Potter house. Uses resurrected unicorn as pet)

15. Hell To Raise by Tozette ('In which Harry Potter animates the dead. Dumbledore disapproves. Other forces... not so much.' Necromancer!Harry, except it's called an animator. Harry has necromancer powers, but they're not as useful as you might think. Not all Slytherins are evil. Dark Harry Potter, or dark-ish. The one with Harry's necromancy being accidental and out of control and Harry manages to raise the basilisk at the end of his second year)

16. Not Just A Kiss by SSC (Dementorish!Harry, very good; gives insight into the 'mind' of a Dementor.)

20. All Gone Aside, by alianora ('The Headmaster, and the aftermath of a prank gone wrong.' A rather scary fic. The prank has gone wrong: Remus killed Severus. The fic shows us what happens afterwards. I hate the thought that Severus is killed but I couldn’t help reading it anyway. The expression “like watching train wreck” comes to mind. Thought-provoking and unusual. While it is neither crazy nor insane, it has a delicious darkness that is as frightening as it is addictive, so here it shall stay)

A new enemy arises from an ancient power, and Harry must take a stand as the last wizard to protect this new world. If only SHIELD would stop trying to track him down...and someone could explain what the hell was an 'Avenger' was supposed to be. Honestly, muggles...' Avengers crossover. Harry and Tony are so freaking similar, it is scary. Harry defies simple laws of physics. Loki and Harry are also strikingly similar. BAMF!Harry. Seriously, he is as badass as they come. Fury is kind of an ass, though. Harry can lift Mjölner. Immortal!Harry, Master of Death!Harry, MoD!Harry, genius!Harry, smart!Harry)

26. A Child Avenged by pandaswearglasses ('Harry is a good guy, but some lines are never meant to be crossed, and Nick Fury has taken one step too far.' Cruciatu Curse, kidnapping of Teddy, Fury is an idiot, oneshot.Dark Harry, MoD!Harry, Master of Death!Harry. BAMF!Harry, powerful!Harry. Seriously, he is way more powerful than Odin or any Asgardian. He is as badass as you go. Crossover with Avengers)

27. Safeguard by esama ('The Chitauri invasion launches a whole new age - for everyone.' Master of Death!Harry, MoD!Harry, sassy!Harry, immortal!Harry. Harry/JARVIS. Sassy!JARVIS, extremely sassy!Tony. Harry's explaining magic with science and quantum physics, and gives Tony headaches and overloads JARVIS' databases. JARVIS has a bit of a crush on Harry. Harry, for his part, is bloody amazed by a magical AI. Tony's mind is still blown away by what magic can do, which is basically almost anything including resurrecting the dead. Tony's also kind of terrified at the prospect of being a father to JARVIS. Technomancy, technomancer!Harry. The relationships are very sweet. Tony/Pepper. Avengers crossover)

28. Grant, O'Flaherty, Pennyfeather by A_Being_of_Violet_Fire ('There are many theories about Professor Binns. How he became a ghost, why he died, why he always drones on and on about the Goblin Wars. But of all the theories and hypothesis, only one class has ever gotten close to the actual truth. One certain second year class of Gryffindors, during the madness of the Chamber of Secrets... Purely by accident, they nearly stumbled onto the horrible, awful truth: that Professor Bartholomew Binns is far more dark, twisted, and mad than anyone had ever suspected.' Dark!Binns, gen, creepy, heir of Slytherin!Binns)

29. Work Hard, Curse Hard by wynnebat (‘Harry decides Dark Lordship suits him at age eleven. It’s unfortunate that his predecessor just won’t retire already.’ Dark Lord!Harry, Dark!Harry, pre-slash Harry/Voldemort, crack, Hufflepuff!Harry, light Harry/Cedric, Cedric is Harry's right hand man, Harry has a very short attention span for megalomaniac speeches. Harry and Voldemort make a truce to make a more permanent truce later, and Harry resurrects him as hot!Voldemort because that's how he sees Voldemort, mustread)

30. The Sum of Their Parts by holdmybeer ('For Teddy Lupin, Harry Potter would become a Dark Lord. For Teddy Lupin, Harry Potter would take down the Ministry or die trying. He should have known that Hermione and Ron wouldn't let him do it alone.' Dark Lord!Harry, Dark!Harry, Harry&Ron&Hermione, BAMF!Harry, mustread)

31. Born Again by wynnebat (‘The ritual in Little Hangleton leaves both Harry and Voldemort much younger than they truly are. It’s not convenient for either of them, but they make do with a bit of kidnapping.’ Crack, fluff, attempted murder, age regression, de-aging, dark!Harry, Voldemort wins AU, fluff, h/c, gratuituously hot Voldemort, POV Harry, dark and delicious and brilliant)

32. High Stakes by HalfASlug (‘After a rocky start, Harry, Ron and Hermione quickly became the best of friends. Life long friends, in fact. Some lives, however, are a lot longer than others.’ Harry&Ron&Hermione, vampire!Harry, vampire!Ron, vampire!Hermione, BAMF!Harry, BAMF!Hermione, BAMF!Ron, Harry likes to Brood, snarky!Harry, vampire!McGonagall, BAMF!McGonagall, poor Voldemort honestly, numerous vampire puns, brilliant)

33. Harry Potter and the Accidental Horcrux by the Imaginizer (‘In which Harry Potter learns that friends can be made in the unlikeliest places...even in your own head. Alone and unwanted, eight-year-old Harry finds solace and purpose in a conscious piece of Tom Riddle's soul, unaware of the price he would pay for befriending the dark lord. But perhaps in the end it would all be worth it...because he'd never be alone again.’ Harry&Tom, gen, somewhat dark!Harry, somewhat BAMF!Harry, h/c, angst, very well-written)

34. Ruthless by AngelaStarCat ('James Potter casts his own spell to protect his only son; but he was never as good with Charms as Lily was. (A more ruthless Harry Potter grows up to confront Voldemort). Dark!Harry. Slytherin!Harry HP/HG and then HP/HG/TN.' Pretty much what the description says. Manipulative!Harry. Dark and delicious. Very well-written)


Brilliant stories:

1. Defiance by TeaWithVoldy (it's an Umbridge-centric fic. Brilliantly written, very in-character; well worth your time. I didn't think I would ever read any fics about Umbridge, but it was one of the best and deepest – not to mention bloodiest – fics I ever read.)

2. On the Way to Greatness by mira mirth (the best Slytherin!Harry fic I've ever had the pleasure to read. Plus, it's dark and yet so good. It's easy to understand everything. You finally comprehend the motives of the Purebloods, the workings of the Minstry, etc. It is quite possibly the best HP fic I've read. 'Strangely, the teachers also expected Harry to go to class and submit homework. As if this was a school, or something.' – Chapter 13. If you only read one Harry Potter fanfic, please make it this. Note to self: it's the dark!Harry fic. You know which one.)

3. Paradise Lost by Neko-chan -Silvered Tongue (With one question posed to the Sorting Hat, Harry Potter's life changes completely. Another dark!Harry fic, although milder than the one above-mentioned.)

4. Gravesong: Requiem by CareOtters (the necromancer!Harry fic; the one set in the future with Harry visiting a dying friend in a hospital. 'Harry knew he'd succumb to his dark powers, but he also knew that he'd recovered, and brought the world back from the brink of annihilation – an annihilation that he himself had caused.')

5. Bellum Domesticum by Littletiger (a very good Severitus, with lots of details most fanfic writers don't even think to include. Very enjoyable.)

6. Once A Father version II by Kyros (Severitus with a canon!Snape, kind of like 'By Blood Only', but Snape is slightly more accepting. 'Slightly' being the operative word.)

7. Ghost In The Cell by cheryl bites (As punishment for his misdeeds, Voldemort is buried alive in a steel coffin a mile beneath the ocean. Goes to tell how restlessness causes insanity, and not the good kind, either.)

8. The Chronicles of Merlin: The Return by jumpin ('Harry Potter wasn't the boy who lived. It was his sister Glory. She was the one that beat Voldemort and is seen as a hero. Harry on the other hand has a power all of his own, and as time goes on it will reveal itself.' Merlin!Harry, Harry is the reincarnation of the classic Merlin)

9. Time to Put Your Galleons Where Your Mouth Is by Tsume Yuki ("Harry had never been able to comprehend a sibling relationship before, but he always thought he'd be great at it. Until, as Master of Death, he's reborn one Turais Rigel Black, older brother to Sirius and Regulus. (Rebirth/time travel and Master of Death Harry)". In other words, really light and funny fic. It's inexplicably easy to read; it takes up all the complicated problems in the Wizarding World and solves them effortlessly while still retaining some of the innocence from the books.)

10. Oh God Not Again! by Sarah1281 (time travel fic; the one with Harry's psychic scar. Hilarious.)

11. Ephemeral Time by Mystical Magician (With nothing left to lose, Harry sends himself as far back into the past as his death will allow him. HP/AD)

12. No Difference by attackfish ('After Harry talks to Dumbledore in Deathly Hallows, he takes a little detour to Spinner’s End, back before it was Snape’s house, back when it belonged to a woman named Eileen Prince. Snape couldn’t be angrier when he finds out Harry is his father.' Harry&Snape, Harry/Ginny. The reverse!Severitus in which Harry goes back in time, sleeps with Eileen Prince, and is Snape's father, reverse!Severitus)

13. The Accidental Vessel by Alatar Maia (crossover with Supernatural. Harry!Loki, Harry!Gabriel)

14. A New Chance Continued by pyrodaemon ('Managing to kill Lord Voldemort, Harry now faces the fates themselves. Watch as he's thrown back in time to his eleven year old self and given a second chance at life, a chance to right past wrongs.' I like the portrayal of Dumbledore. Someone with faults, yes, and while Harry is and always will be Dumbledore's man, he sees the Headmaster's faults, but Dumbledore is genuinely trying to be nice and caring about people. He truly is a kind grandfather whom the Fate has handed a heavy burden and he deals with it in the best ways he can)

15. First Class by Ankhiale (at Hogwarts. Like, ever.)

16. Out of the Night by Raining Ink (dark!Harry, Lord Peverell, rituals, Dark Marks – no, not Voldemort's, something that shows other Dark wizards that one is Dark)

17. Into The Lion’s Den by Abby_Ebon ('The Sorting Hat is not what it seems, as Harry and Neville learn on their first day as First Years. Or, a first year (Neville Longbottom/Harry Potter) finds out (by accident?) that the Sorting Hat is the entrance to Godric Gryffindor’s ‘secret room’, password "Not Slytherin. Not Slytherin. Not Slytherin?"' Time travel, Harry and Neville meet Godric Gryffindor)

18. To Recollect the Future by oliversnape (Harry and Snape travel back in time to destroy the Horcruxes; Snape is surprisingly cooperative and protective of Harry; very cute story, considering the dark themes)

19. Better Be Slytherin! by jharad17 (I love how the author uses a sentence from on chapter to continue the plot in the next one)

20. Harry Potter: Dark Memories by Blueowl ('Voldemort didn't just give Harry some of his powers that night. He gave him all of his memories.' I cannot say how much I loved and enjoyed this story. It would have been a lot easier to create a dark!Harry in this story, with the memories and all, but instead the author took the time to come up with a believable Good!Dumbledote and Light!Harry. She also created several magical theories, one of them about how magic itself works. The bond between Harry and Dumbledore is incredible and unlike anything I've ever seen. The story is simply fantastic.)

21. Really into dragons by ShiphausTrash ('Charlie struggles to find the words to tell Bill how he feels about love.' Asexual!Charlie, aromantic!Charlie, accepting Weasleys, humor. '" They think you might be gay."' Nor woman neither)

22. In Light of Silver Memories by Taliath ('Dumbledore's portrait wakes up at last to have one final chat with Harry. In order to aid the teen in his quest to destroy the Horcruxes, Dumbledore transfers his knowledge, wisdom, and experience. This chat will have unforeseen consequences in the war.' Also, the author is a male and extremely touchy about being mistaken for a girl.)

23. Just In Blood by Carnivorous Llama ('Harry Potter is the heir of Slytherin.')

24. unreachable by malapropism ('"Eventually, Charlie found the words for what he’d always known, and learned that there were others with stories like his. It was easier, in a sense, once he had a word to explain something that seemed inexplicable to so many...But he’d never really gone searching for language, or for community, and he always just thought of himself as simply not interested. Not interested in relationships, or sex, or the kind of love that people fall into."' Asexual!Charlie, aromantic!Charlie, bisexual!Bill, absolutely fantastic)

25. Nadir by wynnebat ('After the funeral, all Charlie can do is pick up the pieces George has fallen into.' Asexual!Charlie. It can kind of go with the abovementioned story, but it focuses more on George's grief. You know, it's the fic where Charlie eventually goes back to Romania and there is this very cozy village near the reservoir, where Charlie lives, and George weakly jokes that he and Fred always thought Charlie was hiding a boyfriend there)

26. Harry's Strange Animagus Transformation by Healer Pomfrey (McGonagall offers Harry the Transfiguration post and Harry proves he's an Animagus)

27. Of Like Minds by Scribe Shiloh ('In which Harry has a problem, and Sherlock offers some unexpected advice.' Asexual!Harry, asexual!Sherlock, Sherlock crossover)

28. When Time Stands Still by Jedi Sapphire ('The usual Harry-goes-back-in-time, but with minimal romance.')

29. House of Snakes by flitterflutterfly ('At 30 years old, divorced, and headmaster of Hogwarts, Harry Potter doesn't have the life he'd always dreamed would come after defeating Voldemort. A chance discovery in the Chamber of Secrets allows him an opportunity to go back in time and change some things. Wherein Harry raises his younger self, dances the political dance with Death Eaters and a resurrected Tom Marvolo Riddle, and searches for a way to stop the destruction of the magical world.' Harry meets the Founders, finds out he's a descendant of Slytherin, time travels back to the 1980s, is transformed into Hadrian Naga – another descendant of Slytherin – then adopts his younger self and resurrects Tom Marvolo Riddle's sanity and body by reuniting Riddle's Horcruxes. Riddle begins to court Hadrian. Hadrian is manipulative yet gentle and nice – unless you threaten Harry, of course. Elegant writing and pleasant flow, easy to follow reasoning. The idea with the magical orphanage and magical adoption that even Lucius Malfoy supports, and Muggleborns bringing in new clean magic. Riddle is polite yet manipulative but in a nice way. Dumbledore is manipulative but not outright evil. He definitely knew about the abuse though. Preslash Harry/Tom)

30. Wind Lord Potter by Swallow-Tailed Kite (LOTR crossover; the one where Harry's world literally falls apart, he endures the creation of the next world – thus making him oldest, by the way – and becomes Gwaihir)

31. Onto Greener Pastures and Brighter Skies by Trinity103 (LOTR crossover; the one where Harry's world once again is blown up in a nuclear war, the Istari are actually normal HP wizards, Harry becomes friends with the Ents, Death is called Mandos (because why not) and looks like Supernatural's Death, Radagast borderline wages war on the Ents despite living in Fangorn, and Harry 'has an aura of darkness' – which, in hindsight, is probably to be expected, considering the whole 'Master of Death' business)'

32. Shuntbumps by Ember Nickel (primeideal) ('Bill and Fleur have been married for ten years, and no one would say they're not the model of happiness. But for some of their siblings, happiness might follow a different model.' Charlie and Gabrielle talk about life and relationships. Asexual!Charlie, asexual!Gabrielle, Gabrielle is just adorable when she's talking in English)

33. Being the Cool Uncle by melannen ('Uncle Charlie was great with patching up scrapes and getting back on a broomstick. Romance, he had less experience with.' Asexual!Charlie, asexual!Roxy, mentorship, kidfic, family)

34. Black Death by Tiro ('Everyone thought that the Boy-Who-Lived was dead. They were wrong. Light-bashing, heavily so.' This portrays a rather curious father/son relationship between Voldemort and Harry. It resembles more an older/younger brother relationship, or maybe that of an uncle and his wayward nephew. Or, the one where Harry dies but not really, Harry's funeral is attacked, all of the people on the light side are locked in dungeons and killed off individually, and Harry behaves more normally than he did during OotP)

35. Absorbed In His Reading by fringeperson ('Harry likes to get lost in a good book, but someone else just wants him to get lost. A bit of magic and Harry suddenly realises new meaning in that phrase. Well, at least he's making friends...' Harry/Legolas preslash, LOTR crossover)

36. All Roads Lead Home by Anonymous ('Draco is strong-armed into spending the first Christmas after the War with the Weasleys. And Harry Potter.' Christmas Drarry, with George dealing with losing Fred by screaming at Malfoy)

37. Not Broken by dragons_and_angels ('Having to explain your sexual orientation to anyone is difficult, but having to explain it to your Mum when she hints about grandchildren is even more so.' Asexual!Charlie, understanding!Molly)

38. Reunion by Rorschach's Blot ('It all starts with Hogwarts' Class Reunion.' In which Harry the psychotic assassin, Hermione the Deputy Headmistress, Susan the spell researcher, and Luna the Auror travel back in time and do crazy shit like killing lots of people and retiring to Australia. Time traveller!HarryLunaHermioneSusan)

39. House of Merlin by ladydea ('On July 3rd 1997, Voldemort stepped into the Ministry of Magic and confessed everything. Every murder, every dark ritual, every deception, plot, ambition and lie. He gave the name of every Death Eater, past and present, and not long after, they too, stepped into the Ministry and confessed. Lucius Malfoy, Severus Snape, Bellatrix Black, Fenris Greyback and forty-six others confessed their crimes and voluntarily surrendered. The only thing that the press knew, and thus the world, was the the reign of Voldemort was over. What they couldn’t figure out was why.' Preslash Harry/Tom. Why did Tom turn himself in and why is Hermione so annoying?)

40. Thoughts on Veelas by lunapuff (asexual!Harry, understanding!Ginny, Harry comes out, Ginny is badass and amazing and funny and sassy, takes place during HBP, implied asexual!Charlie)

41. A Christmas Miracle by Tsume Yuki ('Tom hated Christmas Day, it was always the same. Except that one time it wasn't.' iWthout spoiling too much, let me say this: This fic was adorable and fucking perfect. A perfect Christmas fic. Featuring Harry giving Tom Riddle Christmas gifts, and Tom Riddle being less of a jerk for it)

42. Hermione Granger and the Serpent's Renaissance by epsi10n ('They didn't question why Hermione Granger was able to cast every spell in the first class, or why she seemed to know Hogwarts: A History by heart. They never really noticed her resourcefulness, determination or cunning. They called her a Gryffindor meant for Ravenclaw. Yet, once upon a time, her name was Salazar...' Hermione is Salazar Slytherin. An unusual twist on the Harry is Salazar idea, and wonderfully executed)

43. Queer Marauders Series by genderisasocialconstruct (Agender!Sirius, panromantic!Sirius, pansexual!Sirus, trans!Remus, demiromantic!Remus, demisexual!Remus, biromantic!James)

44. Gelosaþ in Écnesse by Batsutousai ('Caught in the backlash of Voldemort's Killing Curse, Harry is thrown through time to a world so very different from his own.' Time travel, Harry/Salazar. Ramona is the best OC ever, nice yet with clear faults that are not magically forgotten or resolved. Although, to be fair, I love all of these original characters. Mavis, Morgan, Vain, Fane, etc.. Somewhat homophobic, homophobic!Godric. When you first look at the chapter titles, you have zero idea what they contain, but once you get to the chapter and see the title again, you can always guess what will happen and you go, Oh how clever! Harry kills Voldemort with his amazing knife throwing skills. Fantastic Batsutousai, as usual)

45. One with the Snake by CheshireMouse ('There's something ironic about being reborn; Salazar Slytherin can't just take a break from being Harry Potter. The Wizarding World has changed, but not for the better. It's become everything he had preached for in the past and what he dreads most nowadays. Now he has to struggle against dark schemes against his new life with wit and experience being his biggest weapons, as usual.' Metamorphmagus!Harry, Harry is Salazar)

46. more interested in dragons by facingthenorthwind (spacegandalf) ('Charlie's always been more interested in dragons than girls. Or boys, for that matter. And at twenty-nine, he finally decides to tell his mother. He doesn't have high hopes.' Asexual!Charlie, bisexual!Bill)

47. you will bleed to death with the pain of it by LullabyKnell ('Harry Potter is born with the words "Avada Kedavra" written over his heart.' Harry and Ginny are not soulmates. Harry/Ginny. Harry has Voldemort's soulmark. Oneshot)

48. Everybody Knows Your Name by zarinthel (Soulmarks but not soulmates. Harry has Voldemort's and Dumbledore's soulmarks. Harry/Ginny)

49. face death in the hope by LullabyKnell ('Harry looks vaguely nervous, scratching the back of his neck. “It's a really long story,” he says finally, almost apologetically, “and it's really hard to believe.” “Try me,” Regulus says, more than a little daringly.' Time travel, Harry/Regulus preslash so far. Harry saves Regulus' life)

50. Misunderstandings and An Alien Invasion by Aytheria ('"A giant of a man wearing what looked like the American flag as some sort of armour was storming towards him from the ground. From above, a red and gold flying metal robot dove towards them. And directly in front of him, an alien struggled through the wreckage of its hovercraft with a snarl and a deadly looking gun.Sometimes he had to pause a moment to wonder how he got himself into these situations."' Tony Stark is his usual ass, but is also hilarious. Harry gets adopted by a superhero team. Not sure when set in Harry's world. Seems like Fred is alive. Master of Death!Harry, MoD!Harry, BAMF!Harry, powerful!Harry. Crossover with Avengers and Supernatural)

51. as green as a fresh pickled toad by LullabyKnell (a collection of stories and awesome headcanons, featuring among other things Hufflepuff!Harry, students realizing Remus is a werewolf since they have a crush on him, strikingly accurate photosets and Discworld quotes that fit Potterverse, the Four Horsemen as Houses, War!Gryffindor, Famine!Ravenclaw, Pestilence!Slytherin, Death!Hufflepuff; Ravenclaws being a mess, Daphne/Tracey, Parselmouth!Ginny, Potterwatch being a parenting show, remembered details about Peter Pettigrew, YouTuber!Harry)

52. Sunny Wish for a Rainy Day by angryspaceravenclaw ('On his first day of lectures, Remus Lupin can't seem to fend off the advances of the class ponce, so he does the only thing he can think of--he grabs the first bloke that walks by and claims it's his boyfriend. Well that bloke just happens to be Sirius Black, who happens to take fake dating very seriously indeed.' Asexual!Sirius, transgender!Remus, transsexual!Remus, Sirius/Remus, James/Regulus, Lily/Marlene, Gilderoy being an ass. University AU)

53. Asexuality by nhasablog ('James just wants Sirius to know that he isn’t weird or broken.' Tickling, Sirius&James, asexual!Sirius)

54. Where Words Won't Do by flightofthedragons ('It really was getting late, Sirius thought tiredly. But if they went to sleep now, then the next thing they experienced would be Valentine’s Day with its awful pinkness and goopy couples falling over each other and making loud, public scenes that embarrassed everyone around them and the inevitable lonely person who ended up in Sirius’ bed at the end of the night. The whole ordeal was exhausting.' Aromantic!Sirius, asexual!Remus, Remus/OMC, James/OFC, Peter/OFC)

55. Young Volcanoes by skindyedblue ('Sirius meets a fairly attractive stranger at a party. And again in class the next semester.' Asexual!Sirius, sick!Remus, Sirius/Remus)

56. Poison Pen by GenkaiFan ('Harry has had enough of seeing his reputation shredded in the Daily Prophet and decides to do something about it. Only he decides to embrace his Slytherin side to rectify matters.' I LOVE studies in character development, and social studies in general. [The Locket is, in its most fundamental parts, a character study and a study of social interaction in the face of adversity.] Flitwick is awesome. At first it was a mediocre story but then it kind of grew until it was this amazing fic that somehow solved every problem it started, or at least started on the path of solving the long-term problems, within the last five chapters. Oliver Twist's identity forever remains a secret, which I thought a bit unsatisfying until I read that last article by him, after which I realized it was the most fitting ending ever. Funny, mustread)

57. In Care Of by Fang's Fawn ('During the summer before sixth year, Harry finds an injured bat in the garden and decides to try to heal it...and an unwilling Snape learns just what kind of a person Harry Potter really is.' Gen, explicit child abuse, Vernon Dursley being Vernon Dursley. The Harry&Dumbledore bond that develops is amazing, and the Harry&Dumbledore&Snape family is so magnificent, even in its early stages. Caring!Snape)

58. I Think, Therefore I Think I Am by bibesties ('Sirius is rarely involved in feelings of attraction, or crushes, or fantasies, or anything of the sort. Although recently he's been starting to feel a lot closer to one person in particular. It's confusing. It's surprising. It's James.' Sirius/James, Lily/Marlene, asexual!Sirius, aroflux!Sirius, kind of aromantic!Sirius, demiromantic!James, grey-ace!James)

59. spine by planetgin ('"I think I have what you have," Godric says in a tone so even it could only have been practised. "Depression."' The first modern AU with the Founders I have read. Salazar&Godric, asexual!Salazar, depressed!Salazar, depressed!Godric, very good)

60. The Joy of Not-Sex by Wereflamingo ('Sirius is confused about sex and sets out to investigate. And if that investigation includes an awful lot of snogging with one Remus Lupin, what of it? The story of how ace Sirius got together with highly sexual Remus, to great success, and had lots of asexy not-sex with him.' Asexual!Sirius, bisexual!Remus, bisexual!Peter, Sirius/Remus, past Remus/Peter, acephobia, kissing, jealousy, sex-repulsed!Sirius, fluff)

65. Spellist by esama ('The new reality had no wizards or magical nations – but it had a whole boatload of powerful and occasionally inept sorcerers. Who were usually semi-public and sometimes very popular in social media. How it worked, Harry had no idea.' BAMF!Harry, crack, BAMF!Coulson, Harry/Coulson, cute, crossover with Marvel, very well-written)

66. The Owl Who Came for Christmas by dracogotgame ('Draco has a debt to pay off, no matter what Potter thinks. And he has a Very Good Idea to go along with it. Things don't go as planned.' Fluff, Animagus!Draco, Drarry, humour, eighth year, very well-written)

67. Hermione Granger's Hogwarts Crammer for Delinquents on the Run by waspabi (''You're a wizard, Harry' is easier to hear from a half-giant when you're eleven, rather than from some kids on a tube platform when you're seventeen and late for work.' Harry/Draco, Drarry, friendship, pining, very good)

68. A Love Potion by Liepe ('The Slytherin House, more specifically Pansy and Blaise, have been unamused by Draco’s behaviour lately. It has been decided that the perfect punishment would be to give Draco a love potion that would make him act like a love sick puppy around Potter. Nothing happens and the Slytherins can’t figure out why.' Unrequited love, Drarry, Draco is head over heels for Harry)

On the Turning Away by blamebrampton ('It's one thing to be good at not making a besotted fool of yourself over a man when he's busy being the most famous wizard in the world and you're tucked away quietly in Wiltshire.

Not interested in relationships, or sex, or the kind of love that people fall into."' Asexual!Charlie&Bill. 'The second son is a myth. The second son is the usurper. The second son is the favored. The second son is the deceiver. The second son is best, and all praise him. The second son is always playing catch-up.' The one where Bill didn't so much come out as bisexual as just expect his family to accept that as a fact, very well-written)

3. Surrender by Paimpont

4. Acceptance? by SilverWolf7007 (oh c'mon. It's hilarious! How can you not like it? xD)

5. Xerosis by Batsutousai (while it may at first seem like it is just another Harry-goes-to-the-past-to-fix-things, make no mistake – it is not such a fic. It's a HP/LV preslash-ish [there's no easy way of describing it, you have to read it in order to understand what I mean by that]. Also, Harry and Riddle have found the ultimate solution to the Muggle problem – live on the moon. Best Harry & Voldemort fic ever, of any kind. And yes, I do think of it as slash, despite its rather ambiguous ending.)

Tom Riddle isn’t particularly happy about working at a small, dingy shop for magical artifacts, no matter how interesting those artifacts are.

(Unbeknownst to them, people start to ship the pair...)' Harry/Tom. Harry and Tom grew up together, and attended Hogwarts together.

Dark!Harry who thinks it's super weird that none of these people are evil or assholes or even rude, when he and Voldemort and everyone from his dimension are sadistic jerks hell-bent on world domination and subjugation at best: 'No matter how good they seemed, the bad would out. It was a comforting thought. The idea of two legitimately good people giving birth to him—even if they weren’t exactly his parents—was pretty horrifying.' Dark and delicious. Brilliant)

46. Hell is Your Son-In-Law from Another Dimension by wynnebat ('A desperate Order of the Phoenix discovers a ritual to summon from another world a hero who has the power to defeat Voldemort.

Draco Malfoy has a realization concerning his feelings towards the Boy Who Lived and has to deal with it. Harry Potter is oblivious. Ginny Weasley have fun. Luna Lovegood is in love. Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger have issues.}' Asexual!Charlie, oblivious!Harry, Drarry preslash, Ginny&Draco friendship, minor Ginny/Luna, fluff)

29. Faith by Dragongirl16 (The one in which Harry is resorted into Slytherin because all of Gryffindor sans Ginny and Neville sign a petition demanding Harry's expulsion from Gryffindor. Neville and Ginny then demand to be resorted with Harry. Slytherin!Harry, Slytherin!Ginny, Slytherin!Neville)

People always say love blooms in strange places how strange is 20 years ago?' Harry/Sirius. Remus/Hermione, James/Lily. I would usually find it disrespectful how Harry is behaving towards his teachers, but in this fic, somehow it works that Harry calls McGonagall 'Minnie' and insults Dumbledore seven ways to Sunday. I'm happy that Sirius made it through the war. Also, some very interesting concepts with Dumbledore's chesspieces, some of which only Harry can physically touch. Headcanon: Sirius is actually freakishly good at potions, he just does not gloat about it. Ron was apparently a Death Eater. Harry is a mind reader–ish)

41. Unity by Lauren (notalwaysweak) ('Next gen fic. Scorpius feels more at home in his Animagus form than in human form. Al likes boys instead of girls.

42. Legal Alien by WhisperingDarkness ('Normal people didn't have to worry about this sort of thing when they go on a holiday.

'As soon as the door was shut, Vimes started gibbering, wild-eyed, wringing his hands. “Oh, let’s play a game, Vimes! Do you want to play another game that I’m the best at? This is a game I invented just to be the best at! And here’s a game we used to play at Killing-People School! Someone else was the best at it once, but now he’s dead!”' Vetinari engages in his favourite pastime of Pissing Off Samuel Vimes. Vimes and Vetinari play games through the entire poisoning. Vetinari is oddly emotional about the general well-being of rats. It's adorable. Vimes actually figures it out much faster here than he did in the book, so maybe there's some merit to the idea.

Oh, it was all well and good now, this time, when he was the one who benefited from these aptitudes, but there was bound to be a time in the future when Samuel Vimes would be a problem. When that happened he would need something in his life besides The Watch. Samuel Vimes did not have hobbies, outside of drinking, and he appeared to be giving that up in favor of doing his job.

39. An Original Truth or Dare Title by Country music lovin'Hobbit ('Pippin and Merry want the fellowship to get to know each other so they decide to play truth or dare to break the ice.' Because the thought of Boromir undressing Aragorn is too hilarious not to share with this world)

41. (Not) Quite Ready For Another Adventure by JEAikman ('Bilbo hadn't exactly meant this when he'd said that to Gandalf as they boarded the ship. No, he had definitely not wanted to restart his life from just before it was overturned by dwarves, elves, dragons, skinchangers, and oh, let's not forget dragons and gold-sickness. And that Valar forsaken Ring. This was most definitely not what he had imagined. Basically a Bilbo-fixes-everything fic, because reasons.'

49. Blistered Hands by Aurorealis ('Hobbits control elements. This is so commonplace for them that not only do they have no clue that non-hobbits don't have this ability, but it never occurs to them that they could probably rule Arda with tiny iron fists if they wanted to. And even if it did occur to them, they wouldn't care enough to do it. World domination makes you late for tea. Bilbo isn't special compared to other hobbits and when none of the dwarves use power over the elements to make traveling easier, he assumes they're being all hardcore and he keeps himself from using it too to fit in. Then something happens and he ends up using his power to get rid of the threat in a moment of panic.' Elemental!Bilbo, fire!Bilbo)

He lurched out onto the walkway, unable to tear his eyes away from the piles and piles and piles of… He stood stock still, frozen with shock, for a long moment. Are those…handkerchiefs? (AU not-so-oneshot-anymore: Thorin enters the treasury, and what he finds isn't exactly what he was expecting.)' Dragon!Bilbo, Bagginshield, hilarious, matchmaker!Kili.

26. The Elf in the Corner by Russingon5eva ('Just looking at Maglor interacting with more 'Lord of the Rings' times situations. And I felt like shoving it as Aragorn.' Aragorn glimpses Maglor in a tavern. A drabble, really, but so very good. I have so many feelings about Maedhros and Maglor)

27. Strange Meetings by Min Daae ('Aragorn the Ranger runs into a stranger in the wilds of the North. Three guesses which one. The first two don't count.' Aragorn meets Maglor. Very much worth the read)

28. Need some peace of mind by BloodyBrokenAngel ('Bilbo Baggins was not a normal hobbit. He certainly looked the part, but his soul was so much older. His memories full of joy and pain.' Dragon!Bilbo, BAMF!Bilbo, Gandalf the Disturber of Peace)

29. Bilbo of the Dragonkin by littlesparrowkeet ('Bilbo is a dragon, in disguise as a hobbit. He had a personal vendetta against Smaug and would love to destroy him. The Company, not knowing any of this, hired him as their burglar. Let the adventure begin.' Dragon!Bilbo, BAMF!Bilbo, good dragons vs bad dragons. Bilbo ain't dealing with Thorin's shit, gen, Gandalf the Disturber of Peace. I love everything about this story, the pacing, the characters, the take on the dragon!Bilbo plot. I even like the OC here, Ryadher, which is rare for me)

30. Fool's Gold by MP brennan ('While Ecthelion prepares to preside over a season of festivities, Denethor reflects that all that glitters is not gold.' Holidays in Gondor, Denethor, Aragorn, Ecthelion, gen. Very believable. The one with Ecthelion sending private invites to private conversations)

It is here that he expects to live out the rest of his life as an underestimated and overfed hobbit, until the promise of treasure and adventure lures him from his hole.' Dragon!Bilbo, asexual relationship, Bagginshield, slow burn, brilliant)


Brilliant:

1. Like Breathing by Neoinean ('Snapshots of Legolas in the 4th age. Aragorn guest stars.' It made me feel so many emotions all at once: joy, sadness, and anything in between. The ending was very bittersweet, because I could almost taste Legolas' loneliness, how much he missed Gimli, his dwarf friend, and Aragorn, his mellon, his gwador, his anchor and most important person in his life; and yet, at the end, he seemed happy)

2. The Many Names of Aragorn by Salysha ('His name is Aragorn. Among the Elves he is Estel; to the mortal Men, he appears to be a mere Ranger called "Strider." A little introduction to the many names of Aragorn son of Arathorn.')

3. A Merry Meeting in Bree by Maya ('The advent of a group of mysterious men at the Prancing Pony greatly confuses poor Nob, and promises some surprises for Master Barliman Butterbur.' Aka, the headcanon we all wished somebody wrote)

4. For Your Happiness by rocketfinears ('Sometimes, even the Prince of Mirkwood needs sleep.' Aragorn & Legolas bromance)

5 The Wizard and the Ranger by Gandalfs apprentice (how Aragorn met Gandalf)

6. Contrapunto by Gandalfs apprentice ('Captain Thorongil does not bring out Denethor's best side, and the Captain has mixed feelings about the Steward's son.')

7. The Summons by Gandalfs apprentice by ('Three vignettes from the journey of the Fellowship: The Heir of Isildur discusses the Denethor situation with Gandalf, Boromir makes a discovery about a hero from Gondor's past, death takes a son of Gondor. ')

8. The Bitter and the Sweet by cairistiona7 ('A meeting of Kings beyond the Dark Sea. Features Isildur.')

9. Journey's End by Altariel ('Inns, beer, folk songs, and Rangers.' Faramir is the young one, and Aragorn is the old one)

10. Flame of the West by Altariel ('In the Houses of Healing, a steward and a king.')

11. Beyond the Western Stars by Nol ('Eldarion says farewell to Aragorn.')

12. Elvellon by Jedi Sapphire ('Poem. Shortly after he sails to Valinor, Legolas thinks about the friend who could not accompany him.' Very sad)

13. The Parting of Our Ways by Jedi Sapphire ('Poem. Aragorn, sensing that his time is coming, tries to say goodbye to his closest friend.' Very sad)

14. A Conversation About Fathers by SusanaR (Faramir is Aragorn's son. Naturally, Aragorn's solution to Faramir's identity crisis is to attempt to drink Faramir to oblivion. Not as cracky as it sounds)

15. AU of Legendary Friendship and Desperate Hours AUs by SusanaR (Faramir is Aragorn's son. In this one, Faramir finds out and talks to Legolas, which leads to him knowing the identity of Thorongil, which leads to Faramir being very reluctant to reveal this information to Aragorn)

16. Companionship by Lintenoviel (http:///a/viewstory.php?sid=3109&chapter=1; 'Legolas arrives at Rivendell and meets Aragorn.')

17. When Hope is Gone by StarLight9 ('After Frodo is captured, Sauron is willing to trade him for the life of the only Man he is afraid of. Will a friendship prove to be strong enough to save Middle earth?' 'Tis a beautiful description of Aragorn and Legolas' friendship. It is something much more powerful than any love or relationship or friendship or brothership any two people can share with each other. They were more than brothers; they were everything to each other)

18. Dire by AK ('Legolas and Aragorn are captured by orcs and taken to Saruman, who is intent upon discovering the location of the One Ring.' Wherein Legolas is tortured and starts to turn into an Orc. Warning for mentions of torture, although, in my humble opinion, that's some very vague torture. Technically Aragolas, but it's so magnificent and unique that it deserves a spot here. Compare with 'Mirror' by Peaceangel)

19. Of Healers by Jedi Sapphire ('It was meant to be an innocuous riding trip through familiar territory, but then things began to happen.' Two stories that are seemingly independent, one about Aragorn and Legolas, the other about Legolas and Thranduil, but are woven together in the end, showing a beautiful symetry; very nice Aragorn&Legolas bromance)

20. Trust by Sigil ('The hobbits don't trust Aragorn and set out for Rivendell alone - but what about the Wraiths?' Nice touch with Elrond at the end)

21. Black Magic by Lunatic Howling in the Night (HP crossover. 'Harry expected death to be uneventful and Dark Lord free. True to form, none of his expectations were met, including the one involving him being dead.' Absolute brilliance – the sophisticated style of LOTR, coupled with the dry humour oftentimes seen in HP fanfiction. Harry out-reasons Arda. Featuring Melkor as a crow)

22. Wind Lord Potter by Swallow-Tailed Kite (HP crossover; the one where Harry's world literally falls apart, he endures the creation of the next world – thus making him oldest, by the way – and becomes Gwaihir)

23. Onto Greener Pastures and Brighter Skies by Trinity103 (LOTR crossover; the one where Harry's world once again is blown up in a nuclear war, the Istari are actually normal HP wizards, Harry becomes friends with the Ents, Death is called Mantos and looks like Supernatural's Death, Radagast borderline wages war on the Ents despite living in Fangorn, and Harry 'has an aura of darkness' – which, in hindsight, is probably to be expected, considering the whole 'Master of Death' business)

24. Tales of the Innkeeper by Allee1 ('An ongoing series of vignettes in which a simple innkeeper, OC, reflects on his encounter with King Elessar and life in Fourth Age ME in general.' Post-RotK)

25. Beneath the Surface by Canafinwe ('On a bitterly cold night in Bree, Aragorn reflects upon one of his many secrets.')

26. A Song of Rings and Swords by Mononoke-hime x sukai kurora (GoT/ASOFAI crossover. 'Jon Snow died when his men betrayed him, but instead of going to the other side, he is transported to the world of Middle Earth.' Bran also makes an appearance. Aragorn and Jon form a kinship of sorts)

27. From One Age to Another by determamfidd ('Upon their return to Eryn Lasgalen and Erebor respectively, Legolas and Gimli each have a new adornment. Their fathers would like an explanation.' Legolas/Gimli, in which they both have tattooed each other's names onto their bodies and have bonded; Legolas knows Gimli's 'true name'. Very h/c and somewhat angsty, with lots of other emotions; very good romance plot without a lot of the actual romance. Suffice to say, I absolutely adore it)

28. Letter to Thorongil by Elenhin ('Boromir clearly adored his little brother, and wanted to tell a man that he admired about him.' Aragorn&Boromir bonding, and Aragorn&Faramir bonding; all platonic friendship)

29. All Shall Fade by myredturtle ('When he reaches the Undying Lands, Bilbo is offered a chance to go back and change things.' Basically Bilbo and Aragorn go back in time to stop Isildur from refusing to part with the Ring. Elrond is very authentic – book-authentic, that is – in this fic)

30. I, Faramir by surreysmum ('Aragorn asks Faramir to keep a journal for a week. Only Faramir is surprised by what he ends up writing.' Aragorn/Faramir. Where everybody is in love with Aragorn, including Legolas, and Faramir is a bookworm who's prone to underestimating his own importance [nothing new here])

31. Fear of Fire by Blossomwitch ('Faramir finds himself haunted by a severe fear of fire after narrowly escaping being burned to death on Denethor's pyre. When Aragorn comes up with a plan to help him get over it, the two men find themselves spending plenty of time alone together, and begin to discover how far their mutual attraction goes. However, Aragorn's a bit clueless and Faramir's more than halfway convinced he'd be a burden to Aragorn; thank goodness their wives are around to help them sort it out.' Aragorn/Faramir; very heartbreaking and angsty yet sweet fic. The homophobia here is unlike most I've seen before: not confronted directly, but certainly people are aware, and they are trying to hide it more; everybody is aware of exactly what is acceptable. And yet Arwen and Eowyn manage to arrange such a perfect arrangement.

32. Estel and the Hobbit by Eledhwen (wherein Bilbo meets Aragorn in Rivendell; gen; very nice and innocent)

33. Little Estel by Jesse Holmes ('Little Estel's first meeting with a dwarf.' Thorin is surprisingly nice to kids)

34. You Take My Heart by Aearwen22 ('With time growing short, Thranduil summons Gimli to answer some very important questions.' Very good portrayal of Thranduil)

35. The Lost Adventures of Middle-earth by ScribeOfRED ('A collection of short poems set in the beautiful world of Arda.' Some beautiful, some sad, some bitter, some funny)

36. Wandering by Chasing Silmarils ('After their stay in Rivendell, Thorin's company stumbles across a Man -still a child- held captive by the goblins. Just when they decide to leave him to die, they recognize him as the boy they came across in Rivendell, who was called Estel.' Aka Aragorn tags along the Company of Thorin Oakenshield because Gandalf says so)

37. Sleepy by yeaka ('Balin misunderstands and Bilbo tucks into bed.' Asexual!Bilbo, aromantic!Bilbo)

38. W cieniu dawnego szaleństwa by kruk ('AU, w którym Thorin, Fili i Kili przeżyli bitwę. Dekady później Boromir nie zginął pod Amon Hen, Aragorn został królem, a Denethor nadal jest namiestnikiem. Między Mordorem a Wolnymi Ludami panuje stabilny pokój, w którym to Boromir musi się odnaleźć i poradzić sobie z ciążącymi mu sercu wydarzeniami spod Amon Hen, tą chwilą, gdy uległ szaleństwu i pierścieniowi. W Erebor zaprzyjaźnia się z krewniakami Gimliego, którzy także borykają się z przeszłością oraz nie zawsze akceptowaną przyjaźnią z pewnymi elfami. Ogólnie mówiąc przyjaźń Boromira z krasnoludami.' Polski/Polishś genialny fick, bardzo dogłębnie opisujący wewnętrzny konflikt Boromira i Thorina. Fick ze zdecydowanie wyższej półki)

39. The Absence of Want by Neyiea ('It's something Bilbo has never felt comfortable speaking to anyone about, not when all of his family seems absolutely sure that he'll settle down someday, just as all hobbits do. But maybe he can talk about it to someone who doesn't share those expectations of him.' Asexual!Bilbo, asexual!Bofur)

40. Different Yet The Same by SherlockHolmes ('Bilbo/Thorin, with Bilbo being asexual.' Very cute, understanding!Thorin)

41. Without the Need for Love by SherlockHolmes ('Bofur being an aromantic asexual. After having reclaimed Erobor, a combination of his fame, fortune, and general Bofurness attracts both female and male suitors. And everyone gets really confused when he continuously turns them down.' Asexual!Bofur)

42. All that is gold does not glitter by JimmieJive ('Bilbo and Thorin really should have had this conversation before they got married. Well at least they are having it now. In which both Thorin and Bilbo are ace but neither thought to mention this before they got married because they are a little emotionally stunted.' I have found the ultimate Bagginshield awkward conversation fic; 'tis the answer to all my enquiries [and isn't it a coincidence that it is #42 on my list?])

43. to the end of his days by lloydsglasses ('It has always seemed to Bilbo that other hobbits have taken an interest in his bachelorhood, but in nearly a century no one has outright asked him about it.' Asexual!Bilbo, innocent and young Merry)

44. Strange Company by shorttfuse (Perhaps Bilbo has more in common with the Dwarves than he thought.' Asexual!Bilbo)

45. Chaos Theory of the Truth of the Reunited Kingdom by Earendil Eldar (Wherein Aragorn is Faramir's father, and the fic, funny thing though it is in its dry remarks, resembles a soap opera – you know, the Tumblr gifset? Yup, that one. It's long: 60 chapters of part I, 65 of part II, around 65 of part III, and 74 chapters of an AU of part I [well, more of an AU of the unwritten prequels, really])

46. Unwitting Angel by Sentimental Star ('We all know that Arwen came to Aragorn on the river bank, but what if it had been another Elf, instead? Or rather, ELFLING'. Okay, so this is a weird time travel story with about as much logic in it as Doctor Who – meaning its sole goal is to mindfuck as many readers as possible – but the fact remains that it is so beautifully writtent that it is worth the headache)

47. Along the Way by Andixa ('Aragorn and Legolas meet some children in a tavern.' Aragorn&Legolas friendship, very cute)

48. Whenas in Silks by AnnaFan ('First summer in the job! Aragorn faces council meetings (one, exceptionally boring), weddings (two, lovely) and looming diplomatic crises with allies (one, narrowly averted).')

49. Though far away we're still the same by lloydsglasses ('Or, the one in which Bilbo and Thorin get married even though they're not in love.' Asexual!Bilbo, aromantic!Bilbo, asexual!Thorin, aromantic!Thorin. Thorin is still an insensitive jerk)

50. Absorbed In His Reading by fringeperson ('Harry likes to get lost in a good book, but someone else just wants him to get lost. A bit of magic and Harry suddenly realises new meaning in that phrase. Well, at least he's making friends...' Harry/Legolas preslash, LOTR crossover)

52. Salt in a Wound by laEsmeralda ('The Fellowship rests in Lothlórien. Confusion ensues.' Aragorn/Boromir, Boromir thinks Aragorn is in love with Legolas when, in actuality, Aragorn has the hots for Boromir. Both funny and a bit serious; Legolas and Gimli are in a perpetual insult-war)

53. Fealty Kindled by Empy (Empyreus) ('He refuses steadfastly to accept this ragged Ranger as the true heir. It is the raving of madmen, surely.' Aragorn/Boromir, angsty at first, then lovely)

54. Promises and Pledges by cruisedirector ('A Steward's son is expected to marry and produce and heir, whether it's what he wants or not.' Aragorn/Boromir, implied Aragorn/Arwen, character death, intimacy, open relationship, love confessions, internalized homophobia, heteronormativity, duty)

55. Mamabear by yeaka ('Boromir confronts Aragorn on treating Faramir well.' Aragorn/Faramir, Aragorn & Boromir friendship. AU Everybody Lives/Nobody Dies; light fic)

56. Reasons Not to Trust an Elf by rubyelf ('The King and his Steward are in foul moods; Legolas has plans to be "helpful"; Faramir should know better, and Arwen does.' Aragorn/Boromir, a bit of Aragorn/Arwen, Legolas, Faramir, Gimli. Aka, Don't Ever Trust Legolas Because He Fucks Shit Up. Kind of asexual!Arwen, except not really – elves only have sex to have kids)

57. Midnight Snacks by rubyelf ('Hobbits should not be allowed unattended in the kitchen at night. Especially with raspberry jelly. When Boromir finds them there and attempts to address the sticky situation, he discovers that Aragorn has been making some questionable bets and that certain hobbits have some questionable things in mind. No man/hobbit smut, although not for lack of trying on the hobbits' part.' Aragorn/Boromir, onesided Boromir/Merry/Pippin, humour)

58. Chance Encounter by PR Zed (przed) ('A young and headstrong Boromir runs into more trouble than he can handle.' Gen, Aragorn & Boromir, lovely fic)

59. Of Memory and Dream by PR Zed (przed) ('As the Fellowship embarks on their quest, Boromir remembers a past meeting with Thorongil.' Aragorn/Boromir, sequel to the above. The prequel was better)

Two survivors of the Battle of Five Armies, who fought each other before they fought their enemies, try to make sense of the aftermath and the losses they share.' Kili/Legolas, angst, h/c, implied major character death – Thorin and Fili, maybe Tauriel and/or Thranduil)

64. Call It Anything But Love by kaleidomusings (Kili/Legolas, arranged marriage, implied Thorin/Thranduil, implied abuse at the hands of elves. Brilliant fic)

67. Summons by cruisedirector ('Many long months passed before they were able to stand side by side as companions, not as the Steward of Gondor and the King.' Implied Aragorn/Faramir, angst with a happy ending)

68. Deathless by Sann ('Let’s just assume Thrain spent a good decade or three more on his wanderings before being killed by Sauron. On one of her adventures Belladonna Baggins has a torrid affair with a batty old dwarf who claims he is the rightful king of some long-lost mountain. It was jolly good fun, but she has a smial waiting for her back home with her husband inside. Bungo, bless his heart, takes the news of her pregnancy by another man, err- dwarf, in good stride. And when their son is born, well, he has Bungo’s chin, doesn’t he? The neighbourhood certainly doesn't need to know that her Bilbo isn't a Baggins, let alone an actual Hobbit. And his feet are furry (just slightly so) and his ears are pointed (just a bit rounder than normal) and he eats like any Hobbit would. It's just that sometimes, when he corrects her on her history or spends hours weaving the tale of some mountain kingdom and manages the other fauntlings like he is some sort of princeling, that Belladonna thinks that the only odd thing about her son is how he seems old beyond his years.' Durin!Bilbo, reincarnation, Bilbo&Thorin are half-brothers, dwobbit!Bilbo, BAMF!Bilbo)

69. One Day by SubRosa7 ('When it was learned that Faramir the Steward was also the King's son, what did, what did Crown Prince Eldarion think of gaining a 36 year old brother? What did Faramir's daughter Theodwyn think of gaining a 3 year old uncle?' Aragorn&Faramir&Eldarion, gen)

70. Once More into the Breach by SubRosa7 ('Sometimes having family come to visit can be an exercise in patience, even if you are the Steward of Gondor.' Aragorn&Faramir, gen)

Aragolas slash:

1. In Fading Light by milgarion ('After the battle at the black gates, with the chance of losing everything, Aragorn come to realize something he has long repressed.' The one where Legolas becomes King of Mirkwood and brings the remaining elves back to Ithilien. It is done realistically and bittersweetly, yet one cannot help but notice a certain fluffiness in this fic. Gandalf is the supportive-yet-long-suffering mentor that wishes he could just smack some sense into Aragorn and Legolas. Perfect ending)

2. Archery Contest by Tol Morwen (http:///a/viewstory.php?sid=992&chapter=1; wherein Gandalf tells the Fellowship of Aragorn and Legolas' first meeting, and Frodo suspects Aragolas. Can be considered prequel to 'Caught' by Michelle)

3. Lust and Loving by In Open Air ('When the love between King and Queen fades, a new love is born from its embers; Aragorn and Legolas must struggle to find the answer to one question, does lust belie something much deeper?')

4. Return to Bree (http:///tolkienfanfiction/id28.html)

8. An Elf and a Man by Eressea Tea (http:///a/viewstory.php?sid=929&chapter=1)

9. Ways of the Heart by Laurenke1 ('Aragorn has loved Legolas from the moment the man has laid eyes on the elf but Legolas cannot accept his feelings. Can their love ever be?' Bit cliché near the ending, and maybe a tad too sweet and romantic for my tastes, but still very good. The one with the bond where the council of Gondorks rejects Aragolas)

10. Beloved Lord by Lathruth ('It was difficult being King. Aragorn had found that out rather quickly, much to his dismay. After five straight days of listening to his council fight over how his land should be run, all he wanted was some time to himself, in the comfort of his own bedchambers. No such luck.' Plain fluffy smut)

The fellowship is nearing Rohan, and the confusion intensifies as Aragorn begins to question who he really is, and whether his past choices are truly his present self. It becomes clear that the feelings are not unrequited.')

17. Guide to Action by Aralas ('It takes a macabre deal to show Aragorn the action he should have taken a long time ago. He can only hope he is not too late.' The one with the palantir showing Aragorn an entire life without Legolas. 'Passing fancy', and Rumil. Also the one where Aragorn realizes that he specifically does not have to provide heirs)

18. Nightshade by Peaceangel (http:///Nightshade.htm; Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli stumble upon a vampire crypt. Dark and slashy and could my autocorrect PLEASE stop changing 'slashy' to 'slushy')

However, as she stands before his chambers it quickly becomes clear that the King is not alone in his rooms. Fine, alright, that was not such a dumbfounding thought. After all, the King was a healthy man with healthy needs. What she did NOT expect was to see the Prince of Mirkwood walking out of there, his hair in disarray and looking quite satisfied.'

25. I Realize by LadyHawksShadow (http:///Stories/L/LadyHawksShadow/IRealize.htm; 'Aragorn returns to Helm's Deep after his near fatal accident with a warg. Eowyn at last understands exactly who gave him the jewel.')

31. The Mirror by Peaceangel ('Reflections on the purity of Elves, sanity, and darkness. Legolas is injured and must confront what he fears most.' The one where Legolas hallucinates and thinks he is turning into an Orc when he's really not. Compare with 'Dire' by AK)

32. Switch by Tena (Aragorn and Legolas switch bodies. Slightly OOC but what can you expect?)

33. Secret Love by Tena (Aragorn and Legolas are in love. Secretly. Which, of course, means that everybody either knows or suspects. Not as cracky as I make it sound, more like cliché, but the good spelling redeemed this fic)

34. The Lady's Wisdom by Floating Leaf ('Lady Galadriel's good advice brings much needed peace upon two troubled hearts.' In which Galadriel plays matchmaker)

36. In Threes by Ana Library Elf ('These two most beautiful of Elven kin would make the best of the years they had with this bright, burning man, and their trinity created a more perfect union than ever a single pair could have provided.'

The one where there's a celebratory party for a three-year peace in Gondor, and an emissionary from Harad tries to rape Legolas, mistaking him for a mere servant)

37. Journey To Rohan by Peaceangel.2004, Ladyana 5 ('How does Strider help a proud Elf recover from a life-threatening trauma?' By which the author means sickness and rape)

38. The Music of What Happens by Chloe Amethyst, Ladyana5 (the one where Aragorn is late to meet the Mirkwood emissionary, trips over Elladan's nefarious cat, falls on his face, is helped up by Legolas, and falls in love. Other stuff happen too, but they are not nearly as important. So there.)

39. The Foundling Prince by baileymoyes, Ladyana5 ('While on a mission for the Steward of Gondor under the name Captain Thorongil, Aragorn and his foster-brothers free a strange elf from captivity in an Umbaran ruler’s menagerie.'

Aragorn/Legolas, with Arwen's knowledge and approval. She said something along the lines of Aragorn and her marriage being a political one. Quite dark fic in some parts. The one where dwarves survived in Moria and allied themselves with Saruman)

45. Foreshadow by Peaceangel (time travel)

Also includes Frodo/Sam)

59. Morning by Madam_Red ('The sun streamed through the window, it’s bright fingers brushing along the slumbering forms of two bodies. An average morning in the life of King Elessar.' Fluff without plot)

60. On Watch by Hathanta ('Aragorn comes to relieve Legolas of his watch.' Adorable)

61. My Princess by Major Clanger ('After Boromir's death, Legolas comes to terms with how he feels about Aragorn.' The one where Aragorn and Legolas talk about Legolas' feelings for Aragorn at Helm's Deep, and Aragorn says he cannot return them, and Legolas says he asks not of Aragorn to indulge him in physical desire, and there is a lot of other great stuff here. Unreciprocated love, onesided Aragorn/Legolas, brilliantly written in Tolkien-speak. Mention of minor character death and Boromir)

62. Life After Death by LadyAna5 ('Ten years after her death, Aragorn "talks" with Arwen about his deepening friendship with Legolas.' preslash Aragorn/Legolas, mentions of previous Aragorn/Arwen, minor character death [Arwen, mentions of Eldarion, Elrond, and Eomer. Brilliant, emotional, yet simple. Oblivious!Aragorn, oblivious!Legolas)

63. Breath of Life by surreysmum ('Mortal peril has a way of making you face the truth, as Aragorn and Legolas discover.' Sweet yet also kind of angsty because Legolas faces death by drowning because of a boulder on his leg in a river. Finally, Gimli arrives and helps Aragorn move the boulder)

64. The Man Who Smelled of the Sea by doctornemesis ('On their way to the Woodland Realm, Aragorn and his Company are waylaid by a host of orcs who take Aragorn hostage in Dol Guldur. Desperate and injured, Elladan and Elrohir seek the assistance of the Elvenking. Betraying his father, Legolas sets off to save Aragorn himself.' Neat. The one in which Thranduil hates Aragorn)

65. Sneak by LittleSparklePrince ('Christmas eve means cookie dough and kisses.' Aragorn/Legolas, modern AU, cute, Christmas)

66. How Do You Spell Orange? by firesandpixies ('“Mr Oropherion, I don’t meet parents much, but we are here today to discuss about Legolas’ failure in his recent class test,” Mr Bowman said in a firm but gentle tone. But Hot Dishevelled Man was the only thing Thranduil heard. It began as a parent/teacher AU meant to show the lovely dynamics of Thranduil and Legolas’ chillax relationship. But then Barduil happened and I will now sit in a corner and cry about what a trash I am.' Hilarious. 'Legolas is the best son anyone could ever ask for. He doesn’t stab people in his spare time, he tells Thranduil when he’ll be coming home late (or not coming home at all for the next three days), he likes doing the dishes – and really, that’s all Thranduil needs Legolas to be. Legolas is like an independent domestic cat that does what he wants but is nice to occasionally coddle and cuddle.' Aragorn/Legolas, Thranduil/Bard. Very well-written)


Bagginshield slash:

1. A Shot in the Dark by Silver_pup (Time travel; part of the 'Take A Shot' series. 'When he opens his eyes again, he finds himself in his old bed in his old home in his old body. Is this death? Or a trick of magic? Either way, Bilbo recognizes a second chance when he sees one, and this time his adventure with Thorin is going to go a bit differently.' This has a bit of time travel and a hint of sadness, which makes it great in itself, but then it has this great friendship/romance plot that is both adorable and a bit bittersweet, except I know it will end happily; it has great bonding within the Company, and then it has some really amazing badassery on Bilbo's part, and it's just one of the better and lighter romance stories I've ever read, which is ironic considering it features THORIN of all people as one of the main characters. The explanation for the gold sickness is just so authentic that I will probably use it as my headcanon. Also, Bilbo being called 'bunny' by Beorn is the cutest thing ever. Features sassy!Gandalf and sarcastic!Bilbo. The one where Bilbo makes a trip to Mordor with Tauriel, Bard, and Beorn, gets captured by Sauron, and finds out he is soul-bonded to Sauron. The tags are just hilarious. Basically, 'Take A Shot' is the time travel The Hobbit equivalent to 'Erik Lehnsherr's A Parenting'. Taking a Shot is adorable. Thorin is adorable. Also, the one where Bilbo and Thorin adopt Estel/Aragorn)

2. A Fool's Hope by TheLadyZephyr ('Thorin wakes up after the Battle of Five Armies the day the company is due to meet their new burglar in Hobbiton. Somehow he must use his knowledge to change their fate, yet secrets and subtlety are not exactly one of his strengths. Thankfully, as always, he has Bilbo Baggins to cover his shortcomings.' Thorin is adorable and oblivious and just about the cutest thing ever. The Dwarves are being cackling menaces, just like in 'A Shot in the Dark')

3. The Inevitable Love Story between Two Oblivious Idiots by Bgtea ('In which everyone sees the budding romance between Thorin and Bilbo, except, of course, for Thorin and Bilbo themselves. Also, Dis brings the fear of God in other Dwarves and likes to meddle in her big brother's romantic life, and if she has to do this through scathingly written letters, then so be it.' It involves the Company deciding that the best way to improve Bilbo’s image in preparation of him and Thorin getting over themselves and getting together would be to make all the Iron Hills dwarves ship them. So they write fanfiction, and Ori illustrates, and Fili and Kili report to their mother, who keeps bugging Thorin and also makes alcohol. Hilarious as hell, and also has Supernatural references. Also, the tags are hilarious)

4. The Great Movie Adventures of the Company of Thorin Oakenshield (as narrated by Bilbo Baggins) by Itar94 ('Wherein the Company of Thorin Oakenshield get whisked away and made to watch their journey - and onwards - on widescreen.' Exactly what it sounds like)

5. Rumour Has It by FunkyinFishnet ('Rumours abound in Erebor – of how Crown Prince Fili should be ruling as King Thorin heals, of how useful or wretched Captain Tauriel is, of how badly the Crown Prince has chosen a betrothed, of the dangers of Men, Elves, and Hobbits.' Features Tauriel/Kíli and Elrond being consulted for the babies)

6. i have loved you and you have not known it by KaavyaWriting ('Twelve times the Company steps on Bilbo's toes and the one time he steps on theirs… Or at least on someone's.' Wherein stepping on somebody's toes means different things for Hobbits and Dwarves. Oblivious!Bilbo)

7. Alone is a word not meant for you by authoressjean ('The holidays are fast approaching, and Thorin's been dreading them, now that it's just him and his nephews. Harder still given that Fili still barely speaks and hasn't really since Dis died. So when Kili drags them into the bookstore to look for children's literature author Mr. Baggins' new book, and they find the author himself reading his latest, Thorin isn't expecting anything beyond maybe making his nephews a little happier. He certainly isn't expecting to find something for himself but he may have done just that.' It's the most adorable thing ever. Bilbo cures heartache through children's books)

8. The Way That You're Leading Me Home Like That by darth_stitch ('When Mr. Bilbo Baggins returned from his Great Adventure in Far Off Parts, the adventure and his dramatic arrival at Bag End (just in time to prevent the complete auctioning off of all his belongings), was the talk of the Shire for a good six months.')

9. Are you trying to seduce me, Master Baggins? by closetshipping ('The Burglar was trying to seduce him, Thorin was certain of it. But he would not let that menace of a vixen get to him, no, Thorin would show the hobbit that he was stronger than that. It was very hard to think straight when Bilbo exposed himself in such a way, though.')

10. Safe and Distant by Lindzzz (Thorin is not nearly as subtle as he thinks he is and Bilbo's still fucking clueless. The one where Thorin confesses his eternal love to Bilbo while sick, Bilbo leaves for Shire for a year, comes back, finds out that the mithril chainmail is actually an engagement gift, and they live happily ever after)

11. Stoneblind by Chamelaucium ('Courting one's Beloved is a difficult enough process at the best of times, with complex customs and many steps to remember. For Thorin Oakenshield, it's a whole lot more complicated than that. For a start, his Beloved is a hobbit who has absolutely no idea that he even is Thorin's Beloved, let alone the steps of courtship. Secondly, Thorin may or may not be completely invisible to said hobbit, for reasons only the Maker knows. As Thorin is swiftly learning, Mahal has ever laughed upon his sons of the Line of Durin.' The one where Thorin is resurrected after ten months of being dead, Bilbo comes back to Erebor only to be unable to see Thorin, and everything has a happy ending)

12. Here Be Dragons by agirlnamedchuck ('The one where Bilbo is a dragon and still gets roped into reclaiming Erebor, Gandalf is a meddling Wizard, and Bilbo may have confusing feelings for Thorin Oakenshield.' Dragon!Bilbo, BAMF!Bilbo, the one with Thranduil telling Thorin the truth about Bilbo and Thorin wanting to kill Bilbo. '"What did Thranduil say to you?" Bilbo asked. "What did he tell you?" There was no use waiting, best to blunt. "Why does it matter?" Thorin said smirking, biting clear in his tone. There was a coldness about him, so devoid of any warmth or affection that it felt as stinging as a slap to look at him. "Unless what he said is true."' Wonderful fic, and definitely one of my LOTR favourites)

13. Baggins of The Shire by Fangirlyra ('The Shire - unlike any kingdom in Middle earth - didn’t have a King, instead they have a Baggins. This is a story of how a the Baggins of the Shire had an adventure and gained something more than a treasure.' King!Bilbo, courting by the song of the six flowers)

14. Of Dwarves Courting Hobbits by GallantGeekery (Thorin attempts to court an unaware Bilbo.')

15. Courting Mr Baggins by Lothlorien ('Thorin decided to court Bilbo. The only problem was, the hobbit didn't seem to have noticed.' Bilbo notices but in the Shire you are direct rather than subtle, so he waits)

16. The Real Thing by TanukiMara ('Bilbo discovers the differences between what he reads in books and the real thing.' Courting method: learn the other's profession)

17. Regal Disappointment Face by Amuly ('Fili and Kili get it into their heads that Uncle Thorin and Bilbo Baggins are smitten with each other but both are too dense to do anything about it. Enter the brothers matchmakers! Unfortunately, most (all) of their plans involve endangering Bilbo.' This is utterly hilarious. The Regal Disappointment Face just made it all better)

18. The Greatest Treasure in Erebor by TheNarator ('It takes roughly two months of being taken on a different walking tour of The Splendors of Erebor every single day for Bilbo to work out that Thorin and Company are trying to convince him not to leave.' The one where Bilbo leaves for the Shire when he finds out that Frodo has become an orphan, and Kíli, Fíli, and Gimli 'kidnap' Frodo in order to bring the two hobbits to Erebor)

19. Something More Agreeable... by enigma_kar ('In which Bilbo is unexpectedly injured, Thorin is terrible at showing his emotions, Kíli and Fíli fail at spying and the other dwarves appear only briefly because for Durin’s sake someone needs to be focused on this quest!')

20. Arbutus by shinigami714 ('After the encounter with Azog, Thorin is smitten with the hobbit and does his best the court him with manly and majestic deeds. Unfortunately all of his attempts seem to fail hard.' In which Bilbo enjoys neither gold and riches nor does he care about strength or deeds done in battle)

21. through miles of clouded hell by yaseanne ('Thorin tries to woo Bilbo... but fails miserably at it. In fact, he only manages to scare the living shit out of the hobbit.' Smutty)

22. A Most Unsuitable Match by Ekatarinabeisel76 ('This, Thorin thought as he glowered across the campfire at the hobbit, is exactly why Dwarf-Hobbit couplings were unheard of and unmentioned. After a chain of misunderstandings, Gandalf, and the dwarves offer to help, and by help I mean rig every situation so that Bilbo and Thorin have to share the same space until they get along. They just didn't figure on a few other developments coming out of their meddling.' Featuring overly involved friends)

23. The Hardships of Courtships in the Bagginshield Ship by alkjira ('"I am very majestic," Thorin agreed gently, almost moved to tears as well by the plight of his beloved burglar. "That is true." Bilbo sniffed again and wiped at his eyes, convinced that Thorin would never love him. "But I love you," Thorin continued and proceeded to stick his tongue down Bilbo's throat, because making out with someone who was crying seemed like a reasonable idea.' Umm... this is a parody of basically every Bagginshield fic)

24. Overtures by entanglednow ('Bilbo knows that cities are not built on companionship and the occasional plate of scones.' One word: miscommunication)

25. you lick your lips (you taste like years of being alone) by perkynurples ('Thorin Oakenshield was born without the longing, and has spent his whole life merely observing others as they pursued a feeling unknown to him until they finally found their One. He has made his peace with the prospect of being alone, and has been faring well enough, but little does he know the fates have a different story in store for him.')

26. An Expected Journey by MarieJacquelyn ('For years Bilbo has written about his adventures and told stories about his dealings with dwarves and dragons. To most it seemed like fanciful nonsense but to Bilbo it was all very real. A weight followed him home from his travels, one called regret. Now in his final moments Bilbo has a choice to make – go quietly into death’s embrace or go back again and face all the fear and pain for the chance to make things right? Of course, change is a fickle thing and not everything can be done again as Bilbo is about to find out. In the end, it may not only be salvation that he’s fighting for.' Time travel; the one where Bilbo spares Smaug, Smaug hatches eggs and is a worried mother hen, Bilbo dies, Kíli and Fíli run off with Tauriel and fake their death, Thorin relinquishes his claim to the throne, and resurrects Bilbo via Manwë and Yavanna)

27. Sheltered Places by lloydsglasses ('Intimacy, Thorin has come to learn, can take many different forms.' Also featuring Bilbo/Thorin/Dwalin)

28. in many-pillared halls of stone by baggvinshield ('Thorin survives the battle, but loses the war.' WHAT THE FUCK. I expected a happy ending when I read the beginning, but this is the creepiest thing ever. And the plot twist at the end is the darkest thing ever. Seriously, READ THE TAGS AND TAKE THEM FUCKING SERIOUSLY. I truly cannot stress enough how important it is that you take the tags seriously. This is dark, even by my standards. Also, probably asexual!Bilbo)

29. Tangled by xxSparksxx ('Bilbo was an oddity, and no mistake. He hated himself for it. He hated himself for ruining the best thing that had ever happened to him – for oh, Thorin. Thorin, who was his best friend, who was both teacher and student to him, who blessed him with such easy smiles and such eager attentions. Thorin, who was quite contented to sit beside a fire with Bilbo and exchange stories. Thorin, who had opened up Bilbo’s heart once more, until Bilbo woke one day to realize he was so deeply entangled in love that there was no hope for it. There was no hope for it. He loved Thorin, heart and soul, and he had ruined it all now.' In contrast to the fic above, this is a hurt/comfort unlike any other. So much hurt and comfort and angst, and so much understanding, and Thorin actually having feelings [it's like watching Erik be polite]. It causes me heartache, but of happiness because THORIN; asexual!Bilbo)

30. Less Interested by shyasamouse ('Bilbo had never before thought of himself as different from any other hobbit lad, but it appeared that there were certain aspects of life where he was. Asexual!Bilbo and the relationships he builds throughout his lifetime.')

31. You Understand, Don't You? by needtosleepawhile ('The company had been in Dale for a few days. While the company planned who would sleep where, they had decided to allow Thorin and Bilbo a room of their own, out of respect for their king, and for the couple’s relationship. But Thorin was nervous. There was something he hadn't told Bilbo, and as more and more of the dwarves began to head up to bed, a sinking feeling grew in his stomach.' Asexual!Thorin, understanding!Bilbo; Thorin does not like being touched in some places. No, it's not what you think. It's actually quite innocent and angsty, with bits of h/c)

32. Two of a Kind by Neyiea ('"Thorin! Thorin, look at this!" He peers at the screen in bemusement, not entirely sure what it is he's supposed to be looking at. Thankfully it only takes a second before Bilbo says, in a sing-song voice, "two asexuals sitting in a tree, S-I-T-T-I-N-G." His eyebrows lift, and he can't help the wry smile that spreads across his mouth.' Asexual!Bilbo, asexual!Thorin)

33. And in the Darkness Bind Them by Cinderstrato ('Settling in for a quiet -- if not peaceful -- life in the Undying Lands, Frodo soon realizes that his adventuring days aren’t quite done after all. In an effort to seek out Ilúvatar himself to beg for a cure for the dark affliction endangering his uncle, Frodo travels far beyond the reaches of Valinor and finds that he isn’t the only one on a reckless journey to save Bilbo’s life.' I thought this story would be very sad, but it actually turned out to also be fluffy and sweet, and yes, it was angsty, but it was to be expected. Afterlife, Mahal, Manwë, Yavanna, other Valar)

34. I Could Be Your Morning Sunrise by KaliTracer ('Bilbo had been sleeping in Thorin's bed since before the Battle of Five Armies, but it was just sleeping. They were more comfortable within arms reach of the other. It wasn't anything more than that. Now if only they could convince the rest of the company of that. Also, all of Erebor would be good too.')

35. The Hammer and the (Baggins)Shield by RogueFanKC ('Mjolnir, the hammer of Thor Odinson has landed in Middle Earth, and it has chosen it's new wielder: Bilbo Baggins, the Burglar! No, the Dwarves aren't jealous. They're not jealous! They're just...sulking. And Thorin Oakenshield is doing his best to convince himself that seeing Bilbo wield a mighty hammer of the Gods wasn't attractive in the least bit. And then Thor Odinson had to finally show up...' Aka, the Thor crossover nobody knew everybody needed)

36. He Lives on top of the Hill by btg101 ('Bilbo Baggins was a lazy dragon (or the one where Bilbo Baggins is a dragon and it changes nothing and everything at the same time.)' Aka, the one where Bilbo tells the Company from the start that he is a Fire Drake. Dragon!Bilbo)

37. Call You Home by northerntrash ('In which the Company are entirely too nosy about matters that are supposed to be a secret, and Bilbo learns that being concerned about propriety is overrated when you could be making friends instead.' I'm just going to have the tags speak for themselves: 'in which it is hobbits that have a secret language and hidden names, and the dwarves can't quite contain their curiosity. Thorin's making puppy-eyes at the Burglar again. Utterly pointless fluff piece if i'm being honest'. Or, the one where Bilbo is named 'the east wind calls you home' and is subsequently shunned by the other Hobbits; ask me not about the logic)

38. Hazy Shades of Summer by Chamelaucium (''You didn't... You didn't hear about hobbits,' he said. 'I don't believe there's much to hear.' Of course, that is where Thorin was completely wrong.' Or, the one where leaves grow on Bilbo's arms and wrists, and he changes eye colour depending on the season)

39. Blankets, Books and Silver Spoons by NightsDream ('Bilbo Baggins wants nothing but to live out the rest of his life with his hoard of blankets, books and his mother's silver spoons. Going on a journey across Middle Earth with a band of thirteen loud and noisy dwarves was certainly not on the dragon's afternoon to-do list.' Good dragon!Bilbo. Or, the one where Ori finds out about Bilbo being a dragon back in Bilbo's smial, and instead of drawing his weapon, he fishes out his journal from his satchel bag and starts to take notes an document Bilbo for future references. No, that's not the entire plot, that's only the beginning, but Ori's polite sass should definitely be included in the summary)

40. Clipped Wings for an Exiled King by WanderingAlice ('Long ago, so long that even the elves with their long memories have only hazy recollections of it, there were dragons. I do not speak of the worms of Morgoth, those poor twisted creatures he made in mockery of Iluvatar's great warriors, no, but of a race of beings that answered to the whims of the Valar, made to guard that which they most cherished. These were great and noble beasts, who knew the value of honor and love, peaceful when possible, deadly when necessary. But they were not prepared for Melkor and his Uruloki. Glaurung came, he and his kin, and in a great battle that lay waste to the green land that had been the home of the dragons, he slaughtered them all. Well, all but one, the youngest, only two hundred years old, who watched his family slaughtered from a hidden cave. Fast forward a couple ages. Bilbo is a dragon. Or, well, he was. He hasn't properly been one in a very long time, not since Smaug and the other Worms of Morgoth killed his family. This is the story of how he regains himself, and gets a new family in the process.' The one where Smaug killed Bilbo's entire family a few thousand years prior to the story, and Gandalf found the young [200 years old] hatchling, and took care of him by giving him away to the Bagginses. Also, the one where Bilbo tells the truth without telling the truth, and is actually willing to go on the adventure. Yay! Dragon!Bilbo)

41. The Tale of Two Time-Traveling Hobbits by Liliume ('Bilbo Baggins takes a nap in the fields of Valinor with his nephew Frodo one day and then wakes up to find that not everything is as it was before. Not only that, but that he has somehow traveled back in time as well. He finds himself young again, in Bag End, and with a very tiny Frodo Baggins sleeping at his side.' Okay, so this one will be harder to explain. Basically, Bilbo, Elrond, Thranduil, Legolas, and a bunch of other elves go back in time; Bilbo, Elrond, and Thranduil are the best brotp ever; Thorin behaves surprisingly well in Rivendell; Estel is being sweetly big-brotherly around Frodo while being adorkably oblivious)

42. A Fool's Hope by TheLadyZephyr ('Thorin wakes up after the Battle of Five Armies the day the company is due to meet their new burglar in Hobbiton. Somehow he must use his knowledge to change their fate, yet secrets and subtlety are not exactly one of his strengths. Thankfully, as always, he has Bilbo Baggins to cover his shortcomings.' Funny, cute, and sweet; time travel)

43. Shatter Me by JafndaegurDreki ('The Fire Drakes of the North were not the only dragons of Middle Earth. There was another race, one much smaller; the Great Dragons. Few were born, and none existed after the dragon Smaug's rage when he attacked their kind in hopes to conquer them. Well, all of them perished except one. One who was hidden away by his kin in hopes that one day, their king might be able to restore their great race; to find the others that had hidden away as well. And he would've stayed hidden away his whole life too. Had it not been for an obnoxious wizard in a pointy hat with an unexpected adventure.' Dragon!Bilbo, Great Dragons. Wherein Bilbo is a half-Fire Drake, half-Great Dragon, shunned by every dragon; Bilbo was the King of the Great Dragon, a sky racer, and is now the last of the Great Dragons. Bilbo, before the story and as a dragon, has met Thorin before, and the two have become friends. No romance, friendship bonding. Bilbo's true name is 'Bryngeir of the Gilded Wings' since he's the fastest dragon alive)

44. I will catch you if you fall by lloydsglasses ('Thorin’s never been amazing at consoling people, considering that his go-to strategy is to make sympathetic noises while trying not to let the other person see how awkward he feels. And Dwalin once said that Thorin’s sympathetic noises made it sound more like he was growling, so it's no wonder that this strategy seems particularly ineffective.')

45. Recovery, Redemption and Romance by Moonbeam (luvsbitca) ('When Thorin is injured in the Battle of the Five Armies, Bilbo surprises everyone with his healing abilities. Then as Erebor starts to rebuild he continues to surprise people with his knowledge and skills. On top of everything else that is occuring there is a dwarf king and a hobbit who might be trying to court one another without the other knowing - while their companions are either helpful or confusingly gleeful.' Healer!Bilbo. Okay, so this fic is in my top five Bagginshield fics, and also it has the amazing bonus of Kili/Legolas which is just adorable. Also, scones, cute couples, secret courting, Dwarven traditions, female antiheroes, love triangles, and Thorin Oakenshield being Thorin Oakenshield. Oh, and Bilbo is a pretty damn good healer and shut up Thorin you do not get to have a say in this, mustread)

46. The Foe That Is Mistletoe by Heyerette ('Practically snowed in, Bilbo agrees to spend the winter in Erebor before setting off for the Shire following the Battle of the Five Armies. To his horror, his dwarves have no concept of Yuletide and everything that season brings. He sets out to bring some festive cheer into the mountains halls. Its King finds the appearance of all that strange botany mildly worrisome. And then there are all the needles...' Kili/Legolas, Christmas time)

47. Memories by JkWriter ('When Thorin awoke he was staring into eyes he had long since forgotten. They were eyes filled with worry and concern.' Sherlock crossover, Bagginshield slash; Gandalf is Erik Lehnsherr, slight X-Men crossover. A wonderful Hobbit fic, but a horrible Sherlock fic)

48. On Adventures and Other Forms of Conduct Unbecoming of a Wizard by manic_intent ('For as long as even the old Gaffer could remember there had been a wizard living in the hill at Bag End, overlooking the Shire. As wizards went, this one wasn't the wandering sort, always out to lure gentle folk out onto nasty adventures, or even the powerful kind, the sort that lived in high towers, reaching out into the ways of the world.' Bilbo/Thorin. Wizard!Bilbo. The one where Bilbo uses up all his magic on healing Thorin and bringing him back to life, and Gandalf brings him back to the Shire where he is now tied down to the land lest he fade. Sounds like a bittersweet ending, but the last few paragraphs really turn it sweet and cute and adorable. Gandalf is a sassy fuck that actually, it turns out, cares about Bilbo, kind of like family. Very good)

49. How To Court A Hobbit by stravaganza ('Thorin is just really really bad at flirting. And he tries really hard but somehow it just doesn’t work and he gets more and more frustrated which isn’t helping. It’s kind of ridiculous, really. He can face orcs and wargs and orcs ON wargs but whenever he tries to have a civil conversation with Bilbo the words somehow get switched around before he can speak them. BONUS for him going to Balin for advice, Bilbo being totally oblivious (or totally in the know but not willng to help Thorn out just yet) and Gandalf being endlessly amused and dropping innuendos left and right.”' Bilbo/Thorin)

50. Are you trying to seduce me, Master Baggins? by nutzone ('The Burglar was trying to seduce him, Thorin was certain of it. But he would not let that menace of a vixen get to him, no, Thorin would show the hobbit that he was stronger than that. It was very hard to think straight when Bilbo exposed himself in such a way, though.' Bilbo/Thorin, oblivious!Bilbo, pining!Thorin, cultural differences)

51. Court of Gold and Green by Chamelaucium ('Bilbo is very popular amongst the people of Erebor - after all, he did save their city from a certain dragon. But this has gone too far. The very cheek of it... In which Thorin is jealous of anyone and everyone and Bilbo doesn't even realise.' Bilbo/Thorin)

52. Beneath the Mountains Music Woke by EmilianaDarling ('After being rescued by Bilbo, Thorin begins to realize that his feelings for the halfling are more than simple gratitude. But past ills cannot be so easily undone, and the growing need inside him proves difficult to understand or control. And although he might be king in name, a man without land or wealth has little to offer anyone.' Bilbo/Thorin, pining!Thorin, cultural difference)

53. This Noise Inside My Head by WuNsChKiNd89 ('Bilbo has nightmares about the fight with Azog after escaping the Goblin tunnels, and goes several nights without sleep. He thinks he hides it well, but most of the dwarves figure something is up. They make it to Beorn's before he finally succumbs to exhaustion, with some help along the way.' Asexual!Bilbo/Thorin)

54. Never One For Marriage by Mistamie ('Bilbo Baggins never married, though he lived a long, long life.' Bilbo/Thorin)

55. Baggins of The Shire by Fangirlyra ('The Shire - unlike any kingdom in Middle earth - didn’t have a King, instead they have a Baggins. This is a story of how a the Baggins of the Shire had an adventure and gained something more than a treasure.' King!Bilbo, royal!Bilbo, Bagginshield, very well-written)

56. Tangled by xxSparksxx ('Bilbo was an oddity, and no mistake. He hated himself for it. He hated himself for ruining the best thing that had ever happened to him – for oh, Thorin. Thorin, who was his best friend, who was both teacher and student to him, who blessed him with such easy smiles and such eager attentions. Thorin, who was quite contented to sit beside a fire with Bilbo and exchange stories. Thorin, who had opened up Bilbo’s heart once more, until Bilbo woke one day to realise he was so deeply entangled in love that there was no hope for it. There was no hope for it. He loved Thorin, heart and soul, and he had ruined it all now.' Asexual!Bilbo, Everyone Lives AU, Bagginshield, coming out of sorts, sex-repulsed!Bilbo, very well-written)

57. A King's Ransom by lilithiumwords ('"I have come to receive my claim of the treasure of the Kingdom of Erebor, as promised in my contract of employment signed by Thorin, son of Thráin, and Balin, son of Fundin. To get to the point, this jewel is worth a king's ransom. So, I'd like to trade for that, please. The king. Now." Bilbo claims his fourteenth share of the treasure -- and it's not the Arkenstone.' Crack, humor, Bagginshield, Bilbo demands Thorin as his share of the treasure, funny, hilarious, fix-it fic, BAMF!Bilbo, very well-written)


Silmarillion:

1. The Starless Road by emilyenrose ('"Maedhros sought destruction body and spirit, and found both. When Mandos summoned him, he refused, and first of them all he has been taken by the void that they swore themselves to. He is not in the world, and will not come again. Deeper darknesses are there than that which Morgoth made below Thangorodrim!” Fingon paused and looked at Finrod. “Should I not then have killed him as he asked me?”' Maedhros/Fingon; badass!Fingon, the Void, Lorien, Frodo and Sam in Valinor on Tol Eressëa. But seriously, this is one of the best fics I’ve read. It’s a unique case for me, while reading it I had this distinct feeling, sad and bittersweetly hopeful, like I had reading the LOTR itself, closer to its end. It has the same atmosphere, fairy-tale-ish and profound, and something just shines inside it. Also, the angsty yet fluffy bonding, and Maedhros' redemption and regret arc, and Elros and Elrond. If you only read one Tolkien fic, please let it be this one. Please)

2. On the opposite shore of sadness by AngstyChaosMagicUser ('Instead of experiencing a crushing defeat, the Union of Maedhros in successful at the Battle of Unnumbered Tears, sealing Morgoth in Angband and recovering two of the three Silmarils. Apparently not all of Mandos' prophecies come true, and fate CAN be overcome (especially when you throw humans and a very stubborn Maia into the mix). That doesn't prevent everyone from Turgon to the Valar being baffled by Maedhros's seeming triumph over Doom, of course.' Mandatory post-Silm therapy. Maedhros/Fingon, badass!Melian, badass!Galadriel. Galadriel is basically a more diplomatically inclined Fëanor; badass!Maedhros, badass!Fingon)

3. Less Than Kind by emilyenrose ('"I bring a message from my father." Fingon grinned. "I believe his exact words were: you're visiting who, well if you must you must, say something suitable, something something friendship something something kinsmen, tell him good job keeping my brother's sons out of trouble, I'd rather wrestle another ice bear myself – but don't say it like that!" Fingon goes to visit Maedhros, accidentally arrives during a Fëanorion family reunion, and quickly regrets many (but not all) of his life choices.' Maedhros/Fingon; Maglor is sass personified. The second most awkward party/dinner Fingon has ever attended)

4. Come of Age by Fadesintothewest ('Fingon is recently come of age. Maedhros is recently returned to Tirion. Together they forge an everlasting friendship. Maedhros comes to terms with aspects of himself. Together, the two face the conservative social customs and politics of Noldorin society.' Maedhros/Fingon; caring and protective Fëanor; very strict society rules and standards imposed on elves by Valar – even Fingolfin is bitter about it. Depressed!Maedhros. It is neither sugar-coated nor glossed over. His depression is discussed in excruciating detail, brutally honest at times. Dom!Fingon, sub!Maedhros. The story itself was of angst and hurt and comfort and coming to terms with oneself and dealing with mental disease and friendship and love. The epilogue, on the other hand, is everything that was ever dark in the story, times ten. Every dark thought, every morbid potential, everything terrible coming to fruition. The epilogue is the First Kinslaying in Alqualondë from Fingon's POV, with Maedhros/Fingon as the background pairing. Despite that, truly an amazing fic; made me tear up because I could empathize with the characters. The story subtly brought up so many things – some being fantasy like elves and the Valar and Maedhros/Fingon, but most of them hitting a bit too close to home: the conservatism and internalized homophobia in all of Aman, the intricate and dangerous politics of the Noldor, the betrayal of a close friend (that one hurt at the end like nothing ever would), coming to terms with one's sexuality and identity, and dealing with depression. This is a must-read)

5. A New Day by Oshun ('Beginning immediately after Fingon’s rescue of Maedhros from the cliffs of Thangorodrim, it tells of how Fingon and Maedhros reunite and together resolve to heal the divisions among the Noldor.' Maedhros/Fingon; badass!Maedhros; elegant and exquisite writing; very romantic. You can see that the Fëanarion brothers truly care for each other, you can see their bond. Also, Maglor being badass and a very good Regent while Maedhros is captive; Maglor is actually capable of very complex diplomacy, if pressed. Concerning the plot, romance, eloquence, the complexity of the fic, and the sheer pleasure from reading it, it is right up there with 'A Starless Road'. Maedhros himself is stronger than perhaps any elf that ever lived, enduring torture and easily commanding his brothers into submission. Maedhros is also ruthless if need be. Descriptions of torture. If you do character analysis, demisexual!Maedhros; Descriptions of torture and abuse. 'For all their horseplay and bickering, the Fëanárians are nothing if not serious.' The relationship between Maedhros and Fingon is complex. Both are flawed and yet the personal bravery of these two men and their devotion to one another is mythic in proportion. Both are greater because of their relationship with one another. The lifelong aspect of their connection is a primary and memorable part of this tale. The poignancy of their story is that, while Maedhros is failed by his first hero (his father), Fingon, without Fëanor's arrogance and completely lacking any claim to perfection, never fails him. Of course, the doom of the Noldor both illuminates and darkens everything about their tale. All in all, one of the most tragic yet amazing romances I have ever read)

6. Maitimo and Findekáno by Oshun ('Story of young Fingon’s love for Maedhros and its reciprocation. Set in Tirion before the creation of the Simarils.' A prequel to the story above. Fëanor knows and accepts Maedhros/Fingon, while Nerdanel is scared for Maedhros. No, really, Fëanor, for all his faults, loves Maedhros beyond any reason. Maglor is also very acceptant, as are Caranthir and Celegorm. In fact, the entire family is supportive of each other and of their chosen plus ones, like Maglor's Vingarië and Maedhros' Fingon. This story combines the bitter canon with the sweeter imagination, but they do not come out bittersweet, as one would expect. Well, they are a little bittersweet, since we know how it all will end and what their destinies ultimately are, but the author is capable of making us forget about that and just focusing on the now, on Maitimo's sheer force of will, on Findekáno's loyalty and generosity, on Macalaurë's wicked sense of humour coupled total adoration for his older brother, on Maedhros and Fingon's love which transcends life itself. Her depiction of that first wonderful flowering of love between two people and the joy when both learn it is requited is just stunning in its tenderness, complexity, nuance, and honest understanding of the heart – especially when we know what tragedy awaits. In addition I love her depiction of the family and all their complex relationships, especially the warmth and love)

7. Who's the Scabbard? by Sath ('Out of all the difficulties Maedhros expected from re-embodiment in Valinor, Finarfin's sleuthing around for the family newsletter was not among them.' Fëanor is a sarcastic yet lovable jerk. No, seriously, Fëanor's letter is THE BEST. Maedhros' reaction is equally priceless. Galadriel and Finrod are in charge of the newsletter, and everyone is very attached to Maedhros' and Fingon's small dog. You'll die of laughter)

8. The Dragon-helm of Discord by Sath ('How the Helm of Hador found its proper head, explored through letters. Now with a confession of misdeeds by Finrod Felagund.' Also, Maglor, Finrod, and Galadriel are having WAY too much fun writing poems about the love triangle between Maedhros, Fingon, and the dwarf king. Finrod plays matchmaker. 'I have received a most remarkable gift from my lord Fingon. It is a helmet, forged by the great Dwarven smith Telchar, and as you will be thrilled to know, protects me from all harm. Originally, it was a gift from Azaghâl, Lord of Gostabel, to Maedhros Fëanorion, of the red hair and the icy mountain fortress, but then because of a regrettable mix-up, Maedhros gave it to my lord to apologize for the dirty songs about him and Fingon now being about Maedhros and Azaghâl.' That's it. That's the plot. Prequel to the above)

9. No Way You Can Fall by Himring ('Fingon braces himself to defy Namo for the sake of his love of Maedhros, but it turns out to be strangely unnecessary. Ages later in Tirion, there is a rather more dramatic confrontation, when Fingolfin finally suspects the reason why Fingon has immured himself in his house with the cousin he has recently retrieved from Lorien.' Maedhros/Fingon; homophobic language, badass!Fingon)

10. Down. Out. Up. by Himring ('Fingon takes Maedhros home to Tirion after his reincarnation. Finarfin insists on confronting him.' Maedhros/Fingon, a bit of homophobic language, badass!Fingon)

11. Eminently Unsuitable by Himring ('It is reported in the Silmarillion that when Finrod Felagund first met the people of Beor, he had been hunting with Maedhros and Maglor, but had parted from them because he was “wearied of the chase”. According to this story, that was the official explanation given out for his abrupt departure but what in fact had happened was that he had a conversation with Maedhros that first surprised, and then upset him...' Maedhros/Fingon; implied homophobic language)

12. The Military Relevance of Sewage by Himring ('Maedhros carries discretion to extraordinary lengths. In the Second Age, Elrond matches him for reticence.' Maedhros/Fingon; implied homophobic language. Aka, Maedhros writing love letters in code)

13. Ill Chance or Strange Fates by Ivanneth ('Fingon baby-sits, and has an unexpected visitor.' Maedhros/Fingon)

14. Lingering by trollmela ('Maedhros and Maglor both survived the First Age and they are as active in Middle-earth's events as two elves damaged by their failed fight against Morgoth can be.' Gen, various characters)

15. Afar by ncfan ('"She was the second Ruling Queen of Númenor. She was long-lived, and she would wed with no man." -Unfinished Tales, "The Line of Elros", Page 220.' Asexual!Tar-Telperiën, gen, asexuality)

16. F.A. 5 [Years of The Sun] by MeetMeInThePit (Chopsticks89) ('Findekáno won't give up on Maitimo.' PTSD, Maedhros is not okay, like really not okay. Kind of insane!Maedhros, depressed!Maedhros. Maedhros/Fingon)

17. Dancing with my punchlines by LiveOakWithMoss ('In which the sons of Fëanor throw house parties, the beer is terrible, 20-something hipster elves act like their drama is as bad as it is in canon, and macking on cousins is fair game.' Modern AU; Maedhros/Fingon, Aredhel/Elenwë, Celeborn/Galadriel, past Aredhel/Celegorm, Celegorm/Oromë, Caranthir/Finrod, Curufin/Finrod, Nienna/Vána, and others. Maedhros is very protective of Fingon. the feanorians are rich as fuck. In which Maedhros is the goody-two-shoe except not really, and feels guilty all the time, and is all noble and stuff. When Turgon and Finrod get high on hallucinogenic drugs, they dream of gondolin and nargothrond. It's hilarious, really. Maedhros has the best arsenal of embarrassing stories. Demisexual!Maedhros, bisexual!Celegorm, bisexual!Elenwë, lesbian!Aredhel, maybe gay!Fingon, asexual!Curufin. Curufin is eerily like Sherlock: smart, asexual, sarcastic, but caring inside. Maybe grey-ace!Curufin. Seriously, it starts off very chill, and then it goes dark, and then it gets better, and then worse, and then it just goes like a sin curse. Maedhros at first attempts to go into law, before realizing that it isn't what he wants, and goes into teaching instead. I get the feeling that Maedhros more or less raised his brothers. Everyone needs absurd modern Finwions in their life, no exceptions. Really really AU but I love it somehow)

18. The Troll-Bards of Beleriand by Toshimasa ('Thingol wonders what is more wrong with the Noldor than usual lately. Galadriel just shows him a letter from her brother that not only explains a few things but also reveals Daeron as not as sophisticated as he likes People to believe.' Sequel to "The Dragon-Helm of Discord")

19. A Kiss is Never Just a Kiss by Oshun ('Set in Valinor with Fingon/Maedhros and Círdan, with reminiscences of Finwë/Círdan and Círdan/Legolas.' Maedhros/Fingon)

20. New and Improved by Ias ('As a child, Fingon's obvious infatuation with his older cousin was a constant source of amusement in the house of Finwë. When Fingon returns to Tirion fully grown and shockingly attractive, Maedhros is no longer laughing.' Very sweet and fluffy; relaxing and unlike normal angsty Silm fanfics; wonderful. Maedhros/Fingon)

21. our bones only ache while the flesh is on them by Ias ('There is a reason that Galadriel no longer eats meat.' DARK. Well, it's cannibalism. And not the Hannibal kind, either. The really dark and scary kind. Dark!Galadriel, cannibal!Galadriel, gen; they had to eat their people when walking from Aman to Middle-Earth. Provides beautiful contrast with the fic above – it is its complete opposite)

22. Enough for Us by Castiels ('Fingon and Maedhros have a conversation in Valinor about the nature of their relationship.' Maedhros/Fingon)

23. Making Up by MyGirlCrais ('Maedhros and Fingon are always fighting, but Ambarussa have a plan to make them stop.' Maedhros/Fingon; I cannot tell if the twins know about Maedhros and Fingon or if they truly are that oblivious)

24. Maedhros/Fingon: The Owner's Guide and Maintenance Manual by Tenshi Androgynous ('Congratulations! You are now the proud owner of the Limited Edition MAEDHROS and FINGON two-pack, combining the most popular models of the SONS OF FËANOR and CHILDREN OF FINGOLFIN series! Each of these robust units is a sturdy Noldorin Prince, so please read these instructions carefully to avoid mishap.' Maedhros/Fingon, humour)

25. Like a Thunderbolt He Falls by havisham ('Because he prayed for this, and wanted.' Maedhros/Fingon)

26. Rifts by Arhuaine ('Hate marrs the bliss of Valinor as Feanor discovers the relationship between Maedhros and Fingon.' Fëanor is extremely homophobic and Celegorm is simply a stupid jerk)

27. The Scent of Old Books by Arhuaine ('An AU story set in modern England, featuring Maedhros and Fingon, and a shop full of old books.' In which Maedhros and Fingon lived as elves, or maybe reincarnated as elves, into the modern world. Wonderful fic, with lightly implied Maedhros/Fingon)

28. A Less Tragic Cliff by Findecutie, MayGlenn ('During a camping trip with their siblings near the northern mountains of Aman, Maedhros and Fingon strike out on their own. Leaving Maglor in charge of the others, they head for the higher passes searching for new paths and places never before seen by any among the Eldar. Up in the ridges and mountains, they find more adventure then they had intended when a rockslide leads to a close call and an accidental kiss.' Nice Aredhel and Celegorm; Maedhros/Fingon. A truly caring Maedhros. He really takes care of the rest of them and watches over them. A true pleasure to read)

29. Finwë Finds Out by Findecutie, MayGlenn ('While visiting their grandfather’s palace in Tírion, Maedhros and Fingon are caught doing something they really shouldn’t.' Maedhros/Fingon; it is interesting to note Maedhros' personality here: protective yet cautious and somehow fearful of others' reactions. later, in the book, he's more reckless [well, not reckless, but not overly cautious either. Ready to act, that's it] and isolated from people yet people-ignoring. Humour. Finwë is the supportive grandfather with the creepily open sex advice. Finwë had something that vaguely resembled The Talk with Maedhros and Fingon. Also, Finwë is incredibly sassy, like all elves, but nicely sassy, not the Maglor kind of sassy; badass!Finwë)

30. Fëanor Finds Out by Findecutie, MayGlenn ('Fingon surprises Maedhros while the eldest Fëanorians are alone in their father's house for the day. The ensuing romantic interlude comes to a sudden, decidedly unromantic, halt as Maedhros' father (focused on a crafting problem he's come to run by his firstborn) wanders into the room.' Maedhros/Fingon; a bit too slashy for my tastes. i love how Fëanor can put all his prejudice to the side because he knows the betrothal will annoy Fingolfin. You can see the bond Fëanor has with his kids, especially with Maedhros. Nice(ish) Fëanor. Warning: inebriated elves cooking, or more like Fëanor, Maedhros, and Fingon cooking while drunk. At first it's really h/c and more than a bi angsty, but then it goes full-on humour and crack. Love it and love this Fëanor: hardworking and not tolerating idiots yet good to those that deserve it; badass!Fëanor)

31. Fingolfin Finds Out by Findecutie, MayGlenn ('Maedhros and Fingon pull Fingolfin aside as the party begins to give him the news of their betrothal. Though they have more control the situation than when Finwë and Fëanor found out, the discussion soon takes a turn for the worse.' Yes, Fingolfin takes it way worse than Fëanor, which you might think is unexpected, but it actually makes a great deal of sense if you read it)

32. That Hunting Trip by Umeko ('In an attempt at facilitating brotherly bonding, the High Princes of Tirion go on a hunting trip together, with their children, all fifteen of them. Chaos ensues when Irisse's attempt to seduce her cousin goes awry and both brothers and cousins find themselves bonding in unexpected ways.' Smutty smut. Seriously, though there is a vague plot, most of this is smut. It's good smut though, or at least for me: written from a clinical viewpoint, with no mushy emotions. Also, Fëanor is extremely dominant, which in itself is like a good torture fic. Maedhros/Fingon, Fëanor/Fingolfin/Finarfin, Amras/Amrod, Aredhel/Celegorm, Curufin/Finrod, Maglor/Amras/Amrod, Turgon/Elenwë. Basically everybody with everybody)

33. All The Years Between by amyfortuna ('Elrond has newly arrived from over the Sea. Maedhros is terrified that he might hold a grudge. He really doesn't.' Wonderful family bonding; Elrond views Maedhros as his father; Maedhros/Fingon, h/c and fluff and forgiveness and light. The fic leaves you with an amazing feeling of relief)

34. Nor Bid The Stars Farewell by amyfortuna ('Sam and Maglor meet twice in their lives, once long before the Ring Quest, and once long after.' Sort of a sequel to the above; gen, although implied Maedhros/Fingon; Sam physically drags Maglor to Tol Eressëa; badass!Sam)

35. All that we were by Nuredhel ('Maedhros and Fingon are trying to keep their relationship hidden, to prevent a scandal. But when they are discovered the families are thrown into a very difficult situation. Can love survive when paranoia and prejudice rules?' Maedhros/Fingon; It is neither good not bad. It's more neutral. I mean, the punctuation physically hurts at times, but the plot is inventive, and Fëanor is neither glorified not villified – he is his usual jerkish ass)

36. The Lord of Gifts by Petite Dilly ('Maedhros, Fingon... and gifts.' Maedhros/Fingon; In which Maedhros sends Fingon tons of valuable gifts; naturally, people gossip)

37. The winter is warmer by smaragdbird ('Maedhros visits his uncle and cousin in Mithrim to reconcile the family.' Maedhros/Fingon; In which Fingon and Fingolfin find out Maedhros was opposed to burning the ships, and did not participate)

38. All Hang Together by Ithilwen of Himring ('Fingon rides to Himring to hear a proposal from Maedhros.' Maedhros/Fingon; the plan being, of course, the Union of Maedhros)

39. A Simple Bard Indeed by elvenwanderer ('In which Fingon confronts Maglor about Maedhros’ absence, and Maglor proves to be far more than a “simple bard.”' It's a bit hard to tell what this fic is about, not because it has not plot but because the plot is so intricate. Fingon comes to Maglor demanding that he sends out search parties for Maedhros, but Maglor doesn't want to risk an entire army for one man, even his brother. As Regent, he is trying to avoid the crown, but Celegorm wants to announce Maedhros' death and force Maglor to take up the crown. Maglor proves to be a very smart and politically inclined individual and lies and twists the truth and talks circles around Fingon – which Fingon realizes – and finally manipulate everyone [Fingon and Celegorm] into his own favour – which Fingon does not realize; Maedhros/Fingon. Smart!Maglor, badass!Maglor. Very enjoyable fic, suggest warmly you read it)

40. Rebellion by Deborah Judge ('Fingon confronts the Laws and Customs of the Noldor.' Elves' marriage logic: sex leads to love leads to marriage, ans the sole purpose of marriage is kids. Also, Fëanor maybe-approves. Maedhros/Fingon)

41. Sobs of a Broken Soul by Russingon5eva ('Maglor choked back a sob and began stroking his brother's hair. He had known Fingon's death had hit Maedhros hard, but he had neve rimagined that it was affecting him this much.' Drabble; Maedhros/Fingon, Maedhros & Maglor, emotional fic, angst)

42. Of the Stars and Seasons That Come After by jezebel_rising ('This is the story of the Dagor Dagorath, the Battle of Battles and how even the smallest creatures can affect the course of fate.' Bagginshield, just about every character save Aragorn and Arwen, and they will come very soon)

43. Letters to a Daughter by Umeko ('After arriving in Valinor, Elrond writes down his thoughts and experiences in letters addressed to his now mortal daughter.' Maedhros/Fingon; pranks, Gandalf selling marijuana, humour, healing, some grief, bonding, family reunions à la Fëanor, fluff, some angst, h/c, dysfunctional family)

44. Under the Curse by Finch ('The love of Maedhros and Fingon.' Haven't read it too carefully, skimmed through last chapter. Seems worth taking a closer look)

45. A Family Affair by Celandine ('In Valinor, Galadriel has a trying moment when talking to her cousin Maedhros. After Maedhros and his other cousin Fingon discuss matters with his mother Nerdanel, the latter confronts his father Feanor with some hard truths.' Maedhros/Fingon; 1st chapter: Galadriel; 2nd chapter: Nerdanel; 3rd chapter: Fëanor)

46. Traditions by Strigimorphaes ('In exile, Maedhros attempts to rekindle a holiday while recalling how it used to be back in Tirion. Fingon is there too, proving that the more things change, the more some things stay the same.' Close Fëanorian brother bonds, close family Fëanor & Fingolfin & Finarfin bonds, nice!Curufin. Basically the opposite of 'Less Than Kind'. They celebrate a mix of Christmas and New Year; Maedhros/Fingon, supportive brothers)

47. The Revolutionary and the Usurper by Encairion ('The tale of Fëanor and Fingolfin.' Loving Fëanor. Seriously, it's wonderful and light and very pleasant. Fëanor/Fingolfin, Fëanor and Maedhros have a conversation about their 'desires for men'. Seriously, Fëanor is completely and 100% gay and Nerdanel and he are married for the sake of benefits and, in Fëanor's case, keeping up pretenses. Maedhros & Fëanor father son bonding. Beautiful. Fëanor speaks of past regrets regarding not coming out of the closet to Valinor. Also, Melkor makes an appearance. Maedhros is friends and equals with Fingolfin. Nice. Also, Maglor has way more sex than Maedhros does. So far onesided Maedhros/Fingon)

48. Close in Friendship: Homosocial Relationships in the First Age by Miroslav ('The collection gathers diaries, essays, and letters that span over a four thousand year period, beginning with Faramir of Ithilien's private musings on the relationship between Maedhros and Fingon, and ending with a modern essay concerning a cache of letters recently discovered in the Gondorian Archives that sheds further light on several homosocial relationships.' Maedhros/Fingon, among others. I love how people interpret history, and this is a prime example, made the more interesting by the fact that we, as the readers, know the truth, while Faramir makes his own interpretation of the situation)

49. Come Back Together Like The Rising Sun by amyfortuna ('Not long after Thangorodrim, Fingon takes Maedhros on a walking holiday through the country that would become known as Dor-lomin, and falls in love with the land. (He's already in love with Maedhros.)' One of the better Maedhros/Fingon. Fingolfin is actually a very cool guy who plans his son's and his son-in-law's after-wedding feast and is very cool with their relationship, and isplanning to get aboslutely everyone drunk. Also, Maglor composes creepy yet hilarious songs. No, really, it's a lovely song. 'This song was performed only once, very late at night during the Mereth Aderthad. Later reports suggest that the singer was quite drunk at the time, and immediately after singing this, challenged Daeron of Doriath to something called an ‘improv musical strip contest’. History does not record the winner of said contest.' Humour and bonding and some h/c)

50. An Everywhere by amyfortuna ('Fëanáro and Ñolofinwë, following their respective deaths, find themselves locked in darkness with only each other for light.' Fëanor/Fingolfin; a bit too smutty at the end, but overall very pleasant to read. Post-canon fix-it)

51. The World breaks Everyone by mangacrack ('In which Maglor is creepy and insane. His family tries not to care.' Past Maedhros/Fingon, very bittersweet. Not as humorous as it sounds)

52. Her Eyes by lanyon ('As the Dagor Dagorath inches closer, the Elves of the First Age are released from Mandos to live amongst Mortals again. Some do it better than others.' Elves in the modern world; gen)

53. That Auspicious Day by Beleriandings ('Celegorm didn't know, until this moment, about the very important festival of "kiss a ginger day", but luckily Fingon is there to enlighten him.' Maedhros/Fingon, cute)

54. Letter to Fingon by oshun ('Maedhros writes a letter to Fingon questioning the strategy behind his attack on the dragon Glaurung.' Maedhros/Fingon, supportive people, protective!Maedhros, kind of reckless Fingon because he's Fingon; http:///archive/home/viewstory.php?sid=477&chapter=1)

55. Minor Details, Starring Feanorians by Min Daae ('Mandos is never entirely quiet with this family around.' Hilarious post-canon discussions between First Age elves and Third Age elves. Basically every TA elf is scared shitless of the Fëanorians, Caranthir and Celegorm keep interrupting Erestor's storytelling, and Maedhros tries to rein in his younger brothers exasperatedly. It's not really working. Worth reading)

56. Strange Meetings by Min Daae ('Aragorn the Ranger runs into a stranger in the wilds of the North. Three guesses which one. The first two don't count.' Aragorn meets Maglor, who is reminded of Elros. Worth the read)

57. Us Or the Hatchet by Min Daae ('The Feast of Reuniting is supposed to be an occasion for celebration, renewal, and reconciliation. Caranthir is skeptical. Angrod is pretending not to be.' Mutually unrequited Angrod/Caranthir, gen)

58. Your Homeless Souls by Min Daae ('The last two survivors of the House of Finwë meet briefly just outside Lothlorien.' Maglor says that he has to stay alive because somebody had to remember the ones that died all those years ago, remember the world as it once was)

59. Black, White, Gold by Shauna ('The story of Finwe's grandchildren.' Galadriel/Aredhel; Maedhros/Fingon; a bit of h/c)

60. And No Further by Min Daae ('He walks north.' Fingon's thoughts as he goes to rescue Maedhros, and Maedhros' thoughts during and after the torture. Wonderfully sad and bittersweet)

61. Poetic License by StarSpray ('How Fingon got to be called The Valiant, involving a grumpy badger, Fingon's pride, Maedhros' quick thinking, and Maglor's (decidedly wicked) imagination.' Hilarious; Maedhros/Fingon; how Fingon was attacked by a badger and Maedhros saved his reputation)

62. Dispossessed by Min Daae ('In which Dior did give the Silmaril back to the Sons of Feanor. And it's already too late.' In which every Fëanorian but Maglor dies and everything ends in pain and tears and hurt beyond imagination)

63. Each Coming Night by Min Daae ('Maedhros has been captured, and Maglor is trying to be sensible. Trying hard. It's not working very well, not with his siblings. There are fractures, even in this family.' Family arguments, implied torture)

64. And Then There Were None by Min Daae ('Maedhros in his moments of quiet.' Regret and guilt and so much pain)

65. basically everything by Min Daae. She's a brilliant author

66. Truth Inside Your Eyes by amyfortuna ('Fëanor and Fingolfin confront each other in a less public location.' Fëanor/Fingolfin; bittersweet short oneshot)

67. Your Sun by Memaizaka ('In which everybody gets a second chance, and Fëanor and Fingolfin learn to make the most of it.' AU Everybody Lives/Nobody Dies Fix-It; Fëanor/Fingolfin)

68. Heavy the Crown by Arhuaine ('Following his return from Thangorodrim, Maedhros makes an important decision.' Maedhros/Fingon, Fingolfin, the Fëanorians, Finrod; Maedhros renouncing the crown)

69. I Would Have Died A King by daphnerunning ('After Fingon's daring rescue, Maedhros has some decisions to make. Chief among them should be the matter of Kingship, but Fingon has a way of making himself a priority.' Maedhros/Fingon)

70. On Frozen Shores by Ann_arien ('A single scene, on the frozen shores where the Noldorin exiles were inexorably divided shows them as they should have been if Fingolfin had been allowed to keep his oath.' Fëanor/Fingolfin; AU where Fëanor does not abandon Fingolfin in Helcaraxë)

71. Reel On, Love! by havisham ('Fingolfin adjusts to new realities and Fëanor tests boundaries until they break.' Fëanor/Fingolfin; I choose to interpret it as an AU where Fëanor does not abandon Fingolfin in Helcaraxë)

72. Waiting by Lia Whyteleafe ('Fingon has been gone for three months, and Fingolfin still keeps up hope he will return.' Implied Maedhros/Fingon; Fingolfin)

73. Of Fingon and Maedhros by HaloFin17 ('Pretty much the same events that Tolkien relates on Fingon's rescuing Maedhros from Thangorodrim, but in greater detail.' Gen; very Tolkien-esque writing, which is refreshing)

74. What If by Oshun (A What-If-fic in which Maedhros and Fingon make other choices; Maedhros/Fingon)

75. A Slow, Tremulous Cadence by The_Wavesinger ('A ball in which no-one dances, and the morning after. (Featuring angst, politics, conversations, foreshadowing, and a guest appearance by doors. Yes, actual doorways. Also some Maedhros/Fingon.)' Celegorm is a homophobe, and it is implied so is the majority of elves, but wonderful h/c fic)

76. any Maedhros/Fingon by Oshun. Most are sweet yet with so much foreshadowing that they cannot be classed as light

77. don't call me home by Maure ('When Fingon comes to rescue Maedhros, Maedhros believes himself incapable of being rescued. Fingon tries to convince him otherwise.' The one in which Maedhros worries that Morgoth has somehow changed him and made him a threat without Maedhros noticing; Maedhros/Fingon goes without saying)

78. Oh These Saturdays by Min Daae ('We all have hobbies, Caranthir was fond of saying. Kurvo plays the stock market. Maedhros likes to make himself miserable catering to mortal cravings for overly flavored drinks. It's a thing.' The AU where the Feanorians have been reincarnated into the modern day, Maedhros is a barista, and everything is still very dysfunctional. The Fëanorians entertain themselves with hobbies so that they don't have to think about what they have lost and will never regain. Maedhros desperately wants for his brothers to be happy, but represses depression himself. Depressed!Maedhros. Maedhros has two hands, though he keeps forgetting that he can use the right. Everybody is missing Maglor – especially Maedhros, although he shows it the least. The cruelty of their existence is that there really is no point to their existence, where they have always had one. Maedhros finally breaks and admits that he wishes he was dead because he didn't have to deal with anything or worry about anything. Then Maglor shows up and Maedhros finally feels like he can do this. His existence still does not have a point, but he can deal with it thanks to Maglor. An exercise in implied background history and plots. Short, neat, and to the point)

79. Taking the Sword by Ithilwen ('Maedhros learns the art of swordfighting, and discovers his true talent.' Gen; badass!Maedhros. Maedhros secretly trains himself in swordfighting in his room. Maedhros has a true talent towards swordfighting, and protects Maglor from Curufin being an ass. He then regrets it, because he felt powerful and prideful and enjoyed causing Curufin pain, but Curufin says that Maedhros will need his talent soon, since both Fëanor and Curufin have premonitions about something bad happening soon)

80. To Save The Whole by French Pony ('Fingon has had enough of the feud that divides his family, leaving the Noldor powerless in the face of Morgoth. He is sure that his cousin Maedhros holds the key to a reunion. But Maedhros is currently a prisoner of Morgoth in Angband, and there are no plans to rescue him.' Maedhros/Fingon; Maedhros causes chaos by cheerfully reminding every Nolofinwion that they are now the ruling royalty and have to behave like it. http:///chapterview.asp?sid=2977&cid=12029)

81. Comes the Dawn by Ithilwen of Himring ('Maedhros enters the Halls of Mandos, and his final fate is revealed.' Maedhros/Fingon; Mandos)

82. Noldor Falling by doodlebutt ('Russingon with bonus Fëanorians. Or possibly Fëanorians with bonus Russingon.' Despite the summary, it is not humour. Well, a bit of dry humour, and dark humour, but mostly this story is about acceptance, and family, and prejudice, and loyalty, and love, ang hurt and comfort mixed with angst. I absolutely adore this fic and everything about it – from the way Fingolfin is more alike Fëanor than he would like, and yet so very different; Maglor's reluctant acceptance of Maedhros and Fingon, if only to annoy everybody else; Curufin's pride and righteous anger; Finrod's ever-cheerfulness and sassiness; and Celebrimbor's steady refusal to be called by his Quenda name. Maedhros/Fingon; Curufin/Finrod. Finrod is a smirking vindictive fuck, and anyone trying to tell you different is wrong. 'Their lives are falling apart, and they're taking the world down with them.')

83. from me to you by flamingflamingos (baradduh) ('Letters concerning the relationship between Fingon and Maedhros through the time of Valinor and the First Age (Other letters included at the request of Elrond Half-Elven).' Maedhros/Fingon. This was brilliant, everything from Fëanor and Fingolfin's letter insults, to Maedhros and Fingon's obscure love letters, to Maedhros admitting his continuous mistakes to a dead Fingon, to Nerdanel acting as Maedhros and Fingon's therapist)

84. Show Us by LuxaLucifer ('"Don't you have any curiosity?" asked Maitimo, throwing his packed saddlebag at him. "I'd have thought you, of all people, would want to come and meet the Secondborn." "Whatever for?" asked Macalaurë, pleasantly exasperated. "To write a song about it, of course."' Gen)

85. The Silmarillion Rewrite by Jenavira (A humorous version of The Silmarillion, yet completely truthful. At times more tragic than the original, under a thin veil of wit; not-so-subtly implied Maedhros/Fingon)

86. Six Word Stories by Beleriandings ('Tiny bits of fic from the six word story prompt meme on Tumblr.' Maedhros/Fingon, most stories are either dramatic or angsty; don't be fooled by the six word limit – this author can do a lot of damage in six words)

87. Fistful of Swoons by havisham ('Fingon arrives in Formenos on a clandestine mission -- to spend some time with his cousin, Maedhros.' Maedhros/Fingon, secret relationship, Maglor accepting Maedhros and Fingon since Maglor is next in line for the throne after Maedhros)

88. Catch a Handful of Stars by kaleidomusings ('It was a tradition among the Noldor.' The one who proposes marriage then has to hunt for his betrothed in a forest, and the betrothed has to let himself or herself get caught. Weird tradition, but then again, these are the Noldor. Fingolfin gives Maedhros and Fingon his blessing, while Fëanor is against it. Nerdanel provides quiet support. Implied dom!Maedhros and sub!Fingon)

89. Mystery First Age Elves by havisham ('Stuck between the pages of an ancient anatomy book, Glorfindel is surprised to find images that are, perhaps, not intended to teach so much as to titillate. Naturally, he brings them to Elrond for his expert opinion.' Maedhros/Fingon; humour, Elrond, Glorfindel)

90. A Fire Greater Than Thou Knowest by simaetha ('In the AU where Sauron decided not to join Melkor, the Darkening still happens. But events proceed rather differently from there.' Maedhros/Fingon; Celebrimbor/Sauron; gratuitous Fix-It – but don't worry, it gets worse eventually. Finarfin goes into exile with Fëanor and Fingolfin, Fëanor doesn't burn the ships at Losgar, and Maedhros loses the sight in one eye instead of a hand. The drama remains remarkably similar to the canon, except Fëanor redeems himself a bit in the end)

91. Special Muffins by yeaka ('Maedhros opens the shop early to deal with pesky brothers, safeguard his father’s recipes, and chat with perfect cousins.' Honestly, Maedhroms/Fingon is one of the few pairings that can successfully pull off a modern coffee shop AU. Sweet, yet somehow bitter too)

92. Gloom, Doom and Maedhros by Himring ('Maedhros saga, with main focus on Maedhros' life in Beleriand but spanning all the way from the Time of the Trees almost to the end of Arda. The series is Maedhros/Fingon and the development of their relationship is one of the main interests of the saga, but other stories in the series look at Maedhros's interactions with his brothers, uncles, cousins, friends--basically whoever he is known or can be assumed to have interacted with.' Takes a long time to read through it all, and you don't have to read them in order or even read them all - they all work very well as stand-alones)

93. Here comes the rush before we touch by LiveOakWithMoss ('How Fingon and Maedhros met and were basically doomed to date from day one.' Demisexual!Maedhros; Maedhros/Fingon)

94. Of Copper and Gold by Strigimorphaes ('Maedhros resides in Himring, planning and protecting. One evening, Fingon arrives with an urgent matter on his mind - and a friendship that has lasted centuries may change in the course of a night.' Maedhros/Fingon; love confessions, h/c, romance. My heart hurt through every bit of this - so lovely and so painful when you think of what's ahead for them. The notes worked splendidly as an epilogue. It provided a dark and clean contrast to this passionate fic. So beautiful. The words that "I'll be there," almost made me cry. But just think about hope I try to keep telling myself as they both already had preparations to end up in Mandos and even if even so Fingon would find him. But still painful. Maybe dying together is better)

95. Assault to Abjury by havisham ('Maedhros defied his father only once.' Maedhros/Fingon, the one where Maedhros stayed with the rest of the Noldor while the Fëanorians took the ships to Losgar and burnt them. Canon divergence, foreshadowing like a big bag of hammers. Somehow, Celegorm the Asshat became king after Fëanor was killed)

96. Disobedience by trollmela ('Maitimo was not obedient. He was not the perfect son. He was an elf in love with his cousin.' The one where Fëanor and Finwë find out, and then everybody knows, and Maedhros and Fingon are forbidden from seeing each other, but they sneak off anyway. The end is, as is the custom in Silm fics, dark, with Fëanor burning ships because he doesn't want Fingon anywhere near Maedhros. Outright homophobia)

97. Handfasting by trollmela ('Their handfasting was probably the most unassuming one since that of Olwë and his wife. It takes place in a forest in the mountains of Valinor. They had only been out of the Halls of Mandos for two weeks. They don’t need words, or anyone else but each other.' Maedhros/Fingon; surprising lack of homophobic language and actions. The Vala approve)

98. Transparent after the rain by LiveOakWithMoss ('Fingon and Celegorm, caught together in a storm, speak of their siblings.' Maedhros/Fingon, Celegorm/Aredhel, lots of foreshadowing, light fic)

99. Foolish Heart by LiveOakWithMoss ('Fingon seeks a midnight snack and gets more than he bargained for.' Maedhros/Fingon, Fëanor. This started fun and got sad, without the author really getting any say in any of it. I personally blame Fëanor)

100. You Drove Me Wild by LiveOakWithMoss ('Fingon and Maedhros, in the years before the Doom.' Maedhros/Fingon, a bit of Celegorm/Aredhel)

101. Of Songs, Strawberries and Silver Nights by Beleriandings ('In Tirion in the Years of the Trees, Maedhros and Fingon are fast friends despite the growing tension within the house of Finwë. But there is another kind of attraction there too, and it can no longer be denied.' Maedhros/Fingon. I am a bit bothered by the 1st person POV thing this story has going on, but other than that, it is very good. Also, Anairë finds out)

102. Our's is a Tragedy Written Backstage by Bastetmoon ('For some reason no family event can be completely drama free, especially not for the house of Feanor. Maedhros is worried. The twins are up to trouble. And as usual Curvo knows too much.' Maedhros/Fingon, some light angst)

103. Late Last Night by trollmela ('The night before what would later be called the Battle of Unnumbered Tears an intruder climbs through Maitimo’s window.' Maedhros/Fingon, light angst, foreshadowing, smut)

104. Age of Healing by trollmela ('From the diary of Findekáno the Valiant: "Maitimo still won’t leave the house. It seems that he refuses to let Valinor heal him." Who knew that meeting a much younger elf in a similar situation would help an aged former kinslayer.' Implied Maedhros/Fingon or Maedhros&Fingon. Maedhros meets Legolas, who is grieving for Gimli and his mortal friends back in Middle-Earth. Maedhros is more or less manipulated by Elrond to teach Legolas Quenya. This story points out a very overlooked fact: the elves of Middle-Earth use Sindarin as a first language, yet when they sail West, they will need to know Quenya)

105. Respite by ncfan ('Where the kids go when their parents are arguing.' Maedhros goes hunting with Fingon, Celegorm drags Aredhel after them, the twins go to Maglor and his wife, Caranthir goes to his older aunt, and Curufin goes to Finrod who then drags him after the people who went hunting. Maedhros/Fingon, Celegorm & Aredhel, Curufin & Finrod, the Ambarussa, Caranthir & Findis. Dysfunctional family)

106. What You Mean To Me by The_Wavesinger ('Four seasons, four times Fingon loves Maedhros, and three times the rest of the Noldor love them.' Maedhros/Fingon. Drabble form)

107. Of Braids and Maids by Zhie ('Fingon spends a night at his uncle's house with his cousins. The five he likes, the one he really likes, and then, there's Celegorm.' Maedhros/Fingon, Celegorm/Aredhel)

108. A Disgrace to the House of Finwe by amyfortuna ('Young Fingon gets inappropriately drunk, then inappropriately hits on Maedhros, then asks inappropriate favours of Manwe. Somehow it all works out anyway.' Maedhros/Fingon, drunken confessions)

109. Sapphires by Himring ('In Tirion, Maedhros has just emerged from his first public audience with his uncle, King Finarfin, after his re-embodiment. His former fosterling Elrond is at his side.' Gen; implied Maedhros/Fingon)

110. A Common Enemy by Enelya ('Fingolfin, recently come to Mandos, seeks out his half-brother for explanations of various issues in the house of Finwë. In short: it's all Finarfin's fault.' Maedhros/Fingon. Fëanor and Fingolfin talk it out. I never thought I'd see a civil conversation between these two. Hilarious; it is a must-read)

111. Cast Away by Kielle ('As they prepare to set sail for the undying lands, Legolas and Gimli encounter a tragic remnant of an older age...' Gen, Maglor, Legolas, Gimli)

112. MY Silmaril! by Brave November ('The children of Amon Ereb invent a new game, to the dismay of the Sons of Feanor.' Seemingly light and innocent, but dark underneath)

113. Did He Not Come Here by Rilwen-Shadowflame ('Fëanor just wants to know one thing, these days. Feanor, Maglor, Maedhros.' Drabble, sad, gen, family)

114. Crime and Punishment by Avalon Estel ('The Feanorians were never a calm group of people. But then, the Halls of Mandos isn't exactly the calmest place.' Gen, Fëanorian fmaily madness Mandos being a sassy jerk)

115. The Well by Crystal113 ('Maglor meets someone unexpected.' Maglor meets Eru Ilúvatar)

116. Welcome to Valinor by fanged geranium ('The Valinorian Immigration Department can't let just anyone in.' In which immigration is a bitch, and Elladan and Elrohir, and Legolas and Gimli are in prison for various reasons, while Galadriel and Elrond are in a ring-bearer-rehab)

117. Mythic Grandeur by Enelya ('The Valar have differing reactions to the latest myths that come from Middleearth.' Aka What Happens When You Mix Tolkien with Greek Myths)

118. Redemption by AzureSkye23 ('After their return to life, Beren and Lúthien travel north, seeking the origins of a disturbing rumor. When the truth turns out to be beyond their wildest imagination, can they find pity in their hearts for a former tormentor?' Gen, Lúthien/Beren, Sauron, must-read. Headcanon: Gandalf is Sauron's brother. Well, technically all Maia were siblings, but Sauron and Gandalf were closest)

119. Across the Ice by Deborah Judge ('While crossing the Helcaraxe, Galadriel and Fingon have a disturbing conversation.' Implied Maedhros/Fingon, onesided Fingon/Galadriel)

120. Fëanáro's Epic Fail: Loopholes by fantasychica37 ('For an unbreakable Oath that called on the three most sacred names in Eä, the greatest of the Noldor really didn't put much thought into it...' Fëanor forgot Morgoth in his Oath, while Mandos' incorrect use of grammar doomed all followers of the Valar. Also, Elwing doesn't need to give up the Silmaril to Maedhros since she is not a man and therefore not included in the Oath)

121. Many Meetings by WalkingInTalaria ('A series of short stories in which some slain First Age elves (and others) meet each other again in the Halls of Mandos. Some reunions are more pleasant than others. Celegorm, Finwë, Celebrimbor, Fëanor, Morgoth, Huan, the Ambarussa, and Caranthir have joined their ranks in addition to those shown below.' My favourite is Maedhros)

122. Eloquent Remembrance by Sphinx ('On his return to Valinor, Celeborn faces his illustrious father-in-law Finarfin, High King of the Noldor in Aman. Much conversation ensues. Featuring Celeborn, Finarfin, and a cameo by a much loved Peredhil lord and his lady.' Galadriel/Celeborn. Good enough; bonus points for making Finarfin interesting and not a sexist)

123. Talking Hurts by lipstick ('Maedhros is rescued from Thangorodrim, Maglor tries to talk him back to sanity.' Maedhros/Fingon, but sexless. Mentions of rape and torture, which is why Maedhros does not want to sleep with Fingon anymore)

124. Just One Victory by Eriala ('Morgoth never hangs Maedhros from Thangorodrim, which means Fingon is unable to rescue him. Centuries later, the Union of Fingolfin results in the Nirnaeth Arnoediad, and a prisoner takes his chance for escape.' Only read the last chapter, but it seems very good, if somewhat more AU than I am comfortable with. Maedhros/Fingon, torture, non-con)

125. Familiar Faces by ncfan ('Valinor and its people are already familiar to Elrond.' Gen. Elrond, Idril, Tuor, Aredhel, Nerdanel, the Ambarussa)

126. The Parentage of Gil Galad by avi17 ('Ereinion learns the shocking truth of his lineage from an unexpected source.' Maedhros/Fingon, Gil-Galad; total crack)

127. The Weight of His Words by theeventualwinner ('Maglor Feanorion was not lost at the end of the First Age, instead returning in secret amongst the remaining Noldor, and later dwelling with his adopted kindred in Rivendell. As the Council of Elrond decides the fate of the Ring, binding its fate to the Ringbearer, Maglor considers the weight of an oath, and fears the devastation that they can wreak.' Gen, Maglor, Elrond)

128. Star Struck by ncfan ('"Don't look now, my dear, but I think that your brother's grandson is in love with your other brother's granddaughter," Melian muttered behind her hand, smirking.' Galadriel/Celeborn, Melian/Thingol)

129. The Truth of Ugliness by WatcherChild ('A psychological look into the twisted and cruel shaping of the first Orc.' Gen; dark yet so very delicious)

130. A Good Day by LuxaLucifer ('Maitimo is an older brother who's always there for his siblings, even if it means telling embarrassing stories about his teenage years to an unhappy Carnistir.' Gen, very sweet, family, Maedhros & Caranthir. Wonderful story. Love this Maedhros)

Maedhros/Fingon, Fëanor/Nerdanel, Finwë/Indis, Caranthir/OFC, Maglor/canonical wife, Celegorm/Aredhel, Curufin/canonical wife.

138. Sunstroke by LuxaLucifer ('"Ada, where's Maedhros?" Maglor cleaned his damp forehead with a handkerchief and looked around. There were shirtless Elves in every direction, but no red-headed ones. "He's probably in the coolest spot in a ten-mile radius," confided Maglor. "He wears such heavy layers after all. He hates the heat. He was always more suited for Himring." "Will he...will be be okay?"' Gen, Maedhros, Maglor, Elrond, Elros)

Fingon finds Maedhros to be an amazing king. Maedhros is Fingon's king, and Fingon is Maedhros'. Go figure. Maedhros&Thingol bonding and forgiveness. Maedhros intercedes on Thingol's behalf so that Thingol may get out of Mandos, and Thingol is both surprised and infuriated by that. Light Maedhros/Fingon. Maedhros lists his crimes, and the list beats iTunes' terms and conditions)

143. Leave Your Secrets and Kiss the Whiskey from My Lips by victoriousscarf (The Noldorians are gangsters, each Finwion having their own mafia but they have to reluctantly team up against Morgoth. Cousin incest because Maedhros/Fingon and Curufin/Finrod. Celegorm and Curufin are codependent)

144. Maps by grey_gazania ('Fingon, Caranthir, and the aftermath of Maedhros' capture by Morgoth.' Dark!Maedhros, suicidal thoughts, the usual deal with Thangorodrim. Maedhros&Caranthir, Maedhros/Fingon, Maedhros&Fingolfin bonding, easy to understand and a quick read)

149. Under the Moonlight by bereniceofdale ('Elrond was no fool; such tears were not of a pain any medicine could heal. There was something else to them, too: they weren't just tears one spends in grief of kin or family.

He has remained in hiding there ever since, but when he receives news of the kinslaying in Doriath he must find Maedhros once more.' So much angst. The thing is, this fic made me truly realize what a heartbreaking story Maedhros and Fingon are. Maedhros never really had a choice, and his conscience knows that it is wrong, and so does Fingon's. But Maitimo is still forced to commit these atrocities, and it breaks both of their hearts. Then Fingon died during the Kinslaying at Sirion. 'Maitimo, it could not have been you, you have only one hand. But did you give the order for that arrow? You may as well have.' Maedhros/Fingon)

A lost minstrel, fading, and having driven Cirdan to the end of allowing him to pointlessly wander, will have a final drama to face before his life finally begins, or his life finally ends.' Maglor, Círdan, gen, the Grey Havens, technically taking place during the Third Age but concerns events that happened during the First Age. Círdan has watched Maglor wander the shores of Middle-Earth for six thousand years, very much worth the read, kind of dark)

Though if Maedhros is anything like his brother, then he will avoid Elrond until the Second Music. Thus the half-elf takes it upon himself to visit his wayward foster-father before he has a chance to truly disappear. For there are things that Elrond has yet to forgive, and he would very much like to discuss these matters with Nelyafinwë. If only Fingon would let him into the house, though.' Maedhros&Elrond father/son bond which is actually quite lovely, Maedhros/Fingon, post-Mandos, post-Third Age, angst, h/c. Maglor has been reborn but has not contacted Elrond)

The world is not remade, but it is far changed from the one he remembered. The Valar work in mysterious ways, but they are not so inattentive to ignore the rising threat of Sauron.' Resurrection/reincarnation AU fix-it, Maedhros&Aragorn&Legolas&fellowship, BAMF!Maedhros, very well-written, written by a true nerd with adherence to Sindarin and Quenya grammar and anecdotes, mustread!)

167. Celestial Sphere by SpaceWall ('Several letters are delivered, bearing unexpected, but not necessarily unwanted, news. Curufinwë Fëanáro is not as doomed as previously thought. It's hopeful and horrible, and terrifying for different people for different reason. In which Fëanor learns more from fifteen minutes alive than he learned from over fifty centuries of being dead.' Maedhros/Fingon, Celebrimbor/Gil-galad)

168. Changing Winds by SpaceWall ('Fingon and Maedhros eloped (kind of). It was lovely, but unfortunately, it now falls to them to talk to all the family members who they didn't invite.

2. One More Time With Feeling by starlightwalking ('"The lines of Míriel and Indis have been too long at odds," Findekáno said. "We are both of the House of Finwë, and beloved by him—that should be enough for our fathers to get along. Well: if it is not, we shall force them together in a different way." "And, pray tell, what is this other way?" Maitimo asked. Findekáno grinned, ceasing his paces and spreading his arms wide before Maitimo. "Why, we shall have to unite our two Houses in marriage, of course!" Or: the Russingon Fake Dating AU you've all been waiting for.' Mutual pining, first kiss, misunderstandings, fake relationship, oblivious!Maedhros, disaster gays, is it gay to wanna kiss your best friend, totally no homo soulbonds c'mon everyone has an intimate soulbond with their buddy right. Maedhros is the only one smart enough to be able to beat Fëanor at chess sometimes. Maedhros likes kissing Fingon, and they kiss often, but Maedhros still somehow thinks they're "just" best friends. So many misunderstandings that Finrod just outright went "you guys need am interpreter when speaking with each other, valar, for such smart people you are so dumb". Even Maglor had to step in at the end because the two dolts were so dumb. Mustread)

3. Our Houses Bound Together by senalishia, Zhie ('While Fëanáro is on trial for threatening Ñolofinwë's life, Nerdanel and Anairë come up with a plan. Perhaps the feud between their houses can be resolved by forging a marriage alliance between their children. Maitimo and Findecáno, already good friends, naturally volunteer. Now they must somehow untangle their sense of responsibility, their loyalty to their families, and their true feelings for each other.' Maedhros is a political genius and a brilliant strategist who can keep up with Fëanor. Melkor crashes the wedding and kidnaps Fingon, and Maedhros must stage a rescue, and Fëanor offers to trade a Silmaril for Fingon but he eventually doesn't have to. The one where Maedhros and Fingon keep trying to give each other an out but they never take it. Fingon just straight-up confesses his love for Maedhros early on, and tells him that Maedhros is The One for Fingon. I can't describe how BAMF!Maedhros is. Fëanor makes an embroidery that he desperately wants Maedhros and Fingon to like, and they do. Brilliant)

1. The Archer's Paradox by Empress Wu (Asheru) (beautiful fic, humour and fluff)

2. That's What Forever Is For by missbeizy (Viggo/Orlando, beautiful and humouristic, the one where Viggo and Orlando just... kind of live together platonically, and then it turns erotic)

3. One Wedding, Just One Wedding by chaosmanor ('After attending an old friend's wedding, Viggo wakes up with champagne blackout and a charming stranger. "If you're wondering, we didn't shag," Orlando said.')

4. There and Back Again, a New Zealand Tale by Ella_Blue (alice_angel_fic) (the one where Ian throws Super Secret Parties)

5. I'll Catch You by Melusine6619 ('Mulling over his loneliness one night, Viggo receives an unexpected visitor and an admission he’s not quite sure he’s ready to hear.' H/C, angst, and humour)

7. Accidental Witness by Juniper ('Orlando and Viggo get caught in the act.' Peter is very chill about it)

8. In the Glowing by Moggie ('In pursuit of a gorgeous shot, Viggo convinces the cast and crew to spend the night out under the stars.' Very romantic and all that schmuck)

9. Dressed In Bridal White by Lostiawen ('You're really taking Peter's direction last night of 'act like a groom on his wedding day when the elven delegation approaches' far too seriously. I have half a mind to just get out of this sodding chair and whip the door open." "Please don't. It's important that I don't see you beforehand."')

10. Just What I Needed by eirien (Viggo invites Orlando on a trip up the mountains, with a lodge and rabbits and all that schmuck)

13. As Young As They Want To Be by txorakeriak ('Who would choose the Evenstar when the Horn of Gondor was available?' Viggo/Sean Bean)

14. You Wouldn't Believe Me If I Told You by ObsidianJade ('Viggo wakes up to find an Elf in his kitchen wearing oven mitts.' Okay, this oneshot is PERFECT: it has Viggo acting full-on Aragorn, it has LOTR and Hobbit characters together, it has Viggo threatening his imaginary guests with Anduril, it has Viggo hallucinating fictional characters, and finally, it has Viggo/Orlando. Also known as deep crack. Viggo has the best hallucinations when he's sick or drunk. A nod to Viggo for choosing not to appear in the Hobbit because Aragorn was ten in the book. Also, Viggo is fluent in Sindarin, French, Spanish, and everything else including horse)

15. Language Barrier by lucycantdance ('When your boyfriend is quadrilingual, sometimes English isn't enough.' Viggo/Orlando; wherein Viggo speaks English, Danish, Spanish, and French, and Orlando taught himself how to say 'I love you' in Danish. Very sweet and fluffy, short oneshot)

16. Analysis of the Obvious by Élizabeth (watersword) ('It requires a very unusual mind to undertake the analysis of the obvious.' It's Viggo/Orlando preslash, maybe unrequited, maybe requited. It is hard to tell. I cannot even say with certainty what the plot is, but the writing is pleasant enough)

17. Flash by zarah5 ('Taking pictures totally counts as a courtship ritual.' Viggo/Orlando. Orlando's commentary is the best. It is not sassy, it's more like an inner monologue with funny adds. The ending is sort of bittersweet, because Viggo and Orlando both realize that this will not last forever: the recording will end, and even if that will not break them apart, they will not be interested in each other forever due to their age differences, and even if that does not break them up, death will, and Viggo will die a lot sooner than Orlando)

18. Natural Progression by zarah5 ('Wherein you'll find prissy elves and filthy humans. Or, alternatively: Wherein no one cries, dies, takes drugs, attempts suicide, is raped or injured in a bad car accident.' Viggo/Orlando. Or, fluff all around. The one that alternates one scene flashback with one scene present. Viggo and Orlando sleep together in the present, so the past is pre-slash. They sleep together at a LOTR cast reunion with the Fellowship, while Orlando is filming Pirates of the Caribbean. Viggo then decides to visit Orlando in the Caribbean. They joke with each other all the time, and every conversation is so light, it is such a pleasantry to read. It also has some very deep friendship, kind of Agapé love)

19. The Babysitters by bec2224 ('Elijah and Dom, would you trust them with your child?' Elijah and Dom babysit Viggo and Orlando's daughter Sadie. Adorable and funny)

14. The Gleaming Road by Mel Blue 1 ('When Denethor orders Faramir to seduce Eomer it highlights some cultural differences between Gondor and Rohan, and leads to a moment of self-discovery for Faramir.' Rohan is open about homosexual relationships and Gondor is homophobic. Smut but skippable, Faramir/Eomer)


Pirates of the Caribbean:

Sparrington:

1. Misdirection by Jenavira ('Set shortly after the first movie, ignoring all the others. (Written, indeed, shortly after the first movie, before any of the others existed.) Jack Sparrow's taken a letter of marque, and Norrington's life has taken a turn for the strange. Still, any excuse to get out from behind a desk for a while.' Hilarity ensues when Jack Sparrow, of all people, joins the Navy. No, this is not a joke. This is 100% serious. The thing with the Pirates is that no matter whose POV you read, the pirates' or the Navy's, it always is hilarious and leaves you satisfied, since both sides do have some valid points. Norrington's dry wit is the best. Jack/Norrington. Domesticity. Dreamy usage of semicolon. Sseafaring adventure, unnecessarily complicated seduction techniques, adorableness, content stolen from Irish myths, and also C.S. Lewis. Cameo by 'a squiggly thing', and enough cuteness to put a kitten to shame. Privateer!Jack, badass!Jack, BAMF!Jack, badass!Norrington, BAMF!Norrington. Come on, though, we are talking about the same author who wrote the rewrite of the Silm. Mustread)

2. Pirate Vindaloo A Sparrington Novel by elessil, Hippediva ('Commodore Norrington and Captain Sparrow find themselves in a nasty jam and must rely on one another to escape.' Jack/Norrington. All kinds of abuse: mental, verbal, emotional, physical, almost sexual, starvation, almost torture... You name it, they've got it. It's an innate part of this fic. It took me a while to catch on, but Jack seems broken somehow, and trying to hide it. After Norrington comes back, the Navy basically says they have replaced him and don't need him anymore, which is such a jerkish move. Norrington's replacement is nice though, and sincerely not part of the plot to replace Norrington. It seems to me Jack and Norrington are also playing parents to a kid named Matthew. Ends with Norrington going with Jack to the Pearl, although not becoming a pirate but a privateer to Jack's second ship the Penelope. Semi-sentient ships, the Black Pearl and the Penelope. The writing style is a mix of insane Sparrow logic and Hannibal metaphors and speaking anything but plainly. Privateer!Jack, privateer!Norrington. Lovely fic, beautiful ending. I think what I liked the most is that Norrington went down from being one of the most revered people in the Navy, to basically a slave on a ship, to the first mate of the most infamous pirate, to a shamed former Commodore, to a freelance privateer, and yet he lost none of his beliefs in right and wrong. For all that he went through, he did not give up that vital part of his personality and did not become a pirate, choosing instead to continue to serve the British Navy even as a civilian. It is very rare to have that kind of loyalty and devotion, and it is heartening to see. Also, Jack and Norrington learn to trust each other at sea while they are kidnapped. The only warning I have about this fic is that it is freaking 180k words. That's the same amount of words as in The Fellowship of the Ring. Also, very little outright smut. Shadow-truths and Robin Hood analogy. Matelotage. Letter of marque for both Jack and Norrington. An obvious mustread)

3. Monday Morning by the_dala ('"You're in my bed," said the commodore to the pirate.' Just as hilarious as it sounds, although a bit more serious and slashy, though not by much. Jack/Norrington)

4. If the Rum Were Not Gone by elessil ('In which Norrington is taken hostage during the commandeering of the Interceptor. In the turn of events, it is Norrington and Jack who are marooned on the island.' Jack/Norrington, dom!Norrington, sub!Jack. Trust me, it works)

5. Smooth Sailing (DJ Unrepentant Remix) by Aris Merquoni (ArisTGD) ('James Norrington's induction into the crew of the Black Pearl did not go entirely without issue.' Jack/Norrington. Sorry, this is too hilarious for words. Jack and Norrington have a private/public war, in which Jack mutilates and burns Norrington's wig, and Norrington throws all the rum off the ship. The question of which side they are all on is kind of unanswered. On one hand, letter of marque. On the other, Norrington is an ex-Commodore. Anamaria and Gibbs are the sane ones on the ship, and also Jack and Norrington's babysitters. They are basically spying. I'd like to imagine this could be set in similar circumstances to the ones that are at the end of the Sparrington Novel. Letter of marque. Crack, privateer!Jack)

6. An Utter Lack of Contrition by curiouslyfic ('This is, without a doubt, the worst apology he's ever heard. He pins this squarely on their utter lack of contrition.' Jack/Norrington, crack, hilarious, prequel to the above. A long and complicated courting ritual. Letter of marque. Privateer!Jack)

7. A Scandal in Port Royal by oneiriad ('A year after Will and Elizabeth marry, Jack returns to make James Norrington an offer.' Post-Curse AU. Jack/Norrington, pirate!Norrington. The one in which Jack waltzes into a private party and offers, at gunpoint, Norrington to join his crew onboard the Pearl, then leaves. Norrington then disappears hours later, only to reappear months later as a pirate onboard the Pearl. Matelotage. Pirate!Norrington. Grammatically simple, which is part of its charm. Short oneshot, very much worth reading)

8. Falling Into Heaven, Falling Into Hell by oneiriad ('At the end of CotBP, James manages to fall over the cliff with Jack. Jack, being the industrious fellow we all know and love, promptly manages to take him hostage.' Jack/Norrington. It's remarkably beautiful and gorgeous, it's probably one of the most vivid fanfic I ever came across. So brilliant, so natural, so amazing. Although at the beginning Norrington feels a little bit camp and fragile, as the story goes, everything becomes so natural. If Norrington and Jack were real, they would develop their relationship like this. If the lies interact with reality, if they are able to change and shape the reality, do the lies not become real themselves? Sparrow gives N a golden necklace with an emerald 'to match your eyes'. Sparrow knows his Greek philosophy, especially Plato. I cannot help but see it as Jack getting himself a new pet Commodore, and the rest of the crew being jealous. Sparrow is scarily good at predicting the future – and by that, I mean three hundred years into the future. He's like a pirate da Vinci. Whipping. After the whipping, Norrington is scared of Jack. In which Jack is a sophisticated person, though he tries to hide it: he speaks Plato, reads Shakespeare. For all his faults, I find I love this Norrington. He just takes a bit of time to get used to – or rather, the grammar of this story. Don't let the first few enormous paragraphs stop you. Pretty resplendent fic, definitely worth the read. The one with Jack getting two kittens as ship's cats, and Norrington writing down the ship's rules. Anamaria with a lash is badass. BAMF!Anamaria. Norrington's thoughts sometimes give me that feeling I last felt with Back Drifting and How To Fall – you know, that feeling in your gut, both very pleasant and, recenty, so strong it is not very pleasant, but at the same time very nice? Also, Norrington's self-deprication and Christian belief is the best thing ever. I've always loved the emotional part of a fanfic and abhorred the physical part. This fanfic is perfect for me. It takes Norrington 70k words to fall in love with Jack. A must-read, very well-developped emotions, 1st POV. Developping relationship, falling in love. Smart!Jack; Jack knows French, Spanish, Shakespeare, and Greek philosophers like Plato. Quite honestly, it is my favourite PotC fic of all times. It is perfect in every way, from smart!Jack to Norrington's character development. Permanent hiatus, but it is cut off at such a place that you're not left exactly left hanging – consider it an ambiguous ending instead. Okay, this is my favourite PotC fic of all times, as well as my Sparrington headcanon. Mustread!)

9. Expect the Unexpected by oneiriad ('James Norrington had never expected to enjoy himself at the wedding of William Turner and Elizabeth Swann.' Jack/Norrington. Bloody heteronormativity; somewhat implied homophobia, but mostly fluff)

10. These Exiled Years by the_dala ('“Have a drink with me,” he had said. “Just one drink, and then I swear I’ll let you chase me all about town.”' Jack/Norrington, angst. It is almost the exact opposite of the fic above)

11. Stay the Night by icarus_chained ('Jack's about to sneak out. James asks him to stay.' Jack/Norrington; negotiations, James Norrington breaks my heart, light h/c or angst, some fluff. Post-CotBP)

12. A Fine Man by Elayna ('The Commodore wakes up in an unfamiliar bed.' Jack/Norrington. In which Jack was on his way to congratulate Will and Elizabeth on their firstborn, while Norrington is on his way away from them, being gloomy because Elizabeth wants to name their kid James if it is a son; Jack decides to kidnap Norrington since 'a change of scenery always does a person good'. It escalates quickly from there. Also, the son probably ends up a Jonathan)

13. One Silly, Bloody Wish Later by Batagur ('Jack Sparrow makes a wish for himself... sort of.' More like Jack sees a shooting star and pointedly tries not to think about what he wants, which is Norrington, since all wishes he makes have a tendency to go south. Jack and Norrington end up on an island, but Norrington cannot leave it without dying, so Jack goes looking for the Fountain of Youth to use its waters to fully bring Norrington back to life. There might or might not be angst and h/c and love confessions in there somewhere, too. Post-AWE, resurrection. In which Jack and Beckett met each other in a different way from canon. 'What's more, there are still all manner of interesting and mysterious prizes to find out there, and we still have the chart. Me and Jamie, we could be chasin' that ol' horizon until the world comes to a bleedin' end.' James Bond and Jack Sparrow are cats)

14. Light by emungere ('Norrington gets recalled to England. He's not going.' He meets up with Jack instead and becomes first mate of the Black Pearl. Also, strongly implied Jack/Norrington established relationship. The Admiralry wants to court-martial Norrington on the grounds that he always lets Jack Sparrow slip away, 'lets' being the key word. Pirate!Norrington)

15. Standard Procedure for Revenge by kayliemalinza ('James Norrington's deepest desire is to catch Jack Sparrow and string him up. You know, in the name of Justice and Revenge. No latent homosexual tendencies or sexual perversions responsible whatsoever.' Rope bondage, accidental kink, mild bdsm. Humour. Jack/Norrington/Will; Elizabeth encourages Will to sleep with Jack and Norrington. Norrington, having tended his resignation years ago, hunts for Jack for revenge. Kinky. Not sure if Will's captain of the Flying Dutchman, but it is awesome nonetheless. I treat it as a canon divergence after CotBP. Worth the read)

16. The Offer by doolabug ('Commodore Norrington has an offer for Captain Sparrow.' Jack/Norrington, Norrington offers Jack a letter of marque. Very dom!Jack, sub!Norrington)

17. Terms For A Cease-fire by Tarn ('James can't forget the one that got away, which makes his job and his life hard. The impending wedding only makes it worse. The real problem is, it's not Elizabeth he's pining for...' My goodness. It went from 'I'd want to fuck you and then kill you' to 'you own my heart and are the reason for my existence'. A bit of homophobe!Will, accepting!Elizabeth, accepting!Governor Swann, accepting!Gibbs, accepting!Anamaria. Lots of homophobic language. Past Jack/Bill Turner. Norrington is similar to Maedhros in 'Come of Age', minus the depression – you know, the whole 'dealing with unnatural urges' thing. The entire fic is delicious, and there are at least three sequels worth reading – haven't read the last one, as threesomes are not really my thing. Rape, non-con, kidnapping. The one with a past lover of Jack's getting revenge. Must-read)

18. Unfair Tactical Advantage by kayliemalinza ('In negotiations with the captain, James has an unfair tactical advantage.' Set on the Black Pearl, after the Pirates III That Should Have Been—Jack is back on the Pearl, James is with him, and the Turners have exited the scene. AU, obviously. No spoilers. Maybe pirate!Norrington. Anger, humour, funny)

19. Whistle and I'll come to you by azziria ('All the brandy in the world can't erase the memory of those eyes.' In which Norrington succeeds in hanging Jack back in CotBP, and Jack comes back to haunt Norrington. It is dark, and it is creepy, and it is one of the best oneshots of any fandom. Must-read)

20. New World by kayliemalinza ('James wakes up to find somebody blaspheming in his kitchen.' Character death fix, in this case Jack. Post-DMC. Jack defeats the Kraken with a sword, and shows up in Norrington's kitchen to convince him to switch to piracy. Norrington agrees. The Pearl is at the bottom of the ocean though)

21. A Peculiar Nuisance by 0oxymoronic0 ('James Norrington woke up, which is always a pleasant surprise, especially seeing as he was supposed to be dead. Sparrington long oneshot of doom.' Barbossa resurrects Norrington and kidnaps the Turners so that he can lure Jack Sparrow to him and get his compass. In the end, Jack escapes with the Turners, Norrington, and his compass, and Jack and Norrington sail happily away into the sunset on the Pearl. Happy ending, somewhat angsty but mostly fluffy from what I've read. Jack's compass now points, when Jack is the one holding it, mostly at Norrington, which, to be fair, is to be expected)

22. Mischief by Stowaway ('Jack drives Norrington crazy.' First time Jack/Norrington; basically just a funny oneshot)

23. Compromises by Stowaway ('Picks up where Trust and Honour left off, on the morning James Norrington leaves Port Royal for the last time.' You don't need to read 'Trust and Honour' to get this – I didn't. The only thing you need to know is what you suspect already: established Sparrington. Several times removed sequel to the above. Jack has been betrayed and wounded, and the cheerful front he puts up is just that – a front. He used to sleep with Anamaria. Jack speaks French. It seems this has gone on for quite some time, with some kidnappings along the way. Norrington integrates himself just fabulously with the Pearl's crew. Jack is very protective of the Pearl, but also willing to let others steer her. What I especially enjoy here is that Jack isn't always nice: he is dark, he is a pirate, and he damn well enjoys it. It is a cold reminder for Norrington. Dark!Jack. Anamaria truly cares, but she is so fed up with Jack's bullshit, she behaves a bit weirdly. Still, her behaviour is explained and understandable at the end. Jack finally decides to switch to trading. The final plot twist is that it was Pearl all along who, being the awesome semi-sentient ship that she is, convinced him to switch. Anamaria is an especially interesting character here. Attempted mutiny, which failed. Pirate!Norrington for a second, then kind of privateer!Jack, or merchant!Jack. The one in which Norrington signs the ship's articles. Possible sequel to 'Light' by emungere)

24. Acting-Commodore Groves by Stowaway ('Whatever happened to those mutineers, anyway?' Groves being a badass acting-commodore, who will quite prbably someday escape just as Norrington has done. BAMF!Groves. Accepting!Groves. I am quite honestly in love with the Gull; sloops are gorgeous boats. Semi-sequel to the above)

25. Rum Punch by elessil, Hippediva ('Christmas in Port Royal with an unexpected surprise.' In which Jack breaks in to Norrington's house to 'cheer him up', bringing with him a Christmas tree and other decorations. They then go sailing during the night and, as expected, eventually fuck)

26. Loose Lips Sink Ships by Webcrowmancer ('Jack sighed. "Elizabeth," he began, cautiously. As she turned to face him, he continued, "Why, precisely, was it that you decided to knock me out, steal my ship, kidnap Norrington and throw us in here?"' Similar to Benedick and Beatrice in Shakespeare, this fic brings the two of them together using rumor and talk. Everybody ships Sparrington except the oblivious Sparrington themselves. Jack Sparrow causes chaos wherever he goes. Flirting at swordpoint. The Turners are assholes. Jack and Norrington are pissed, and I can completely understand them. https:///~peja/piratesofthecaribbean/LooseLipsSinkShips.htm)

27. Letter of Marque by Dee ('The unthinkable occurs to the Commodore, and Sparrow's involved. What a surprise.' Part one of the Caribbean Cartography trilogy. This is another tale of adventure, humour and love. Norrington's POV. Swann and Norrington are both despondent, plaintive, and asking what kind of sin they have committed as to warrant having to be nice to Jack Sparrow. Jack forges his own letter of marque. Norrington's running commentary is the best. Kind of like 'Misdirection'. Same kind of humour, too. Dry, witty, and sassy. Norrington is badass when it comes to sailing – he can feel the winds and the changes and the ship underneath his fingers when he is at the helm, just like Jack. It isn't enough to catch up with the Pearl, but still, kudos for trying. Norrington alternates between wanting to kill Jack, and finding him hilarious and getting along fabulously wth him. Anything involving Jack Sparrow is automatically beyond the realms of reality, which basically summarizes the entire fandom. Mustread! http:///uncharted/cc1marque.html)

28. the sequels to 'Letter of Marque' by Dee (They tricked me into thinking it would be a humorous trilogy, and yes, the first part was hilarious. The second part became more of a romance story, of dealing with perceived betrayals, with a bit of dark humour mixed into the whole thing. The third part was far more serious than either of the other previous parts, and dealt with running away, sacrifice, choosing one's own future, and what one is willing to sacrifice for it. Jack forges an old letter of marque of his. Anamaria/Groves. Works perfectly. Subtle pairing Anamaria has a brother who is essentially a governor's gay slave plaything, but he seems happy, so they left him there. 'Jack had "introduced" me to the crew as merely James, and no one had stepped forward to gainsay him. Would have I received such a welcome on any other free vessel in the Caribbean?' I realized that, while the first part was hilarious, the second bordered on seriousness, and the third was quite serious, mixed with dry humour, but was mostly about finding your own place in the world, and what you are willing to sacrifice to stay there. Norrington fell in love with the Pearl too. DON'T READ THE LAST SCENE. JACK BASICALLY SAYS JAMES WILL REGRET NOT GOING BACK TO ENGLAND, AND IT IS HORRIBLE AND HEARTBREAKING AND IT'S LIKE THE LAST TWENTY SECONDS OF MERLIN ALL OVER AGAIN. JUST DON'T. I honestly cannot emphasize this enough: don't read the last scene, the one that begins with 'The place hadn't changed'. Norrington got over Elizabeth. 'I squinted up at Elizabeth, haloed by the sun and as pretty as any other girl.' Norrington faked his own death in part three. 'And as for Commodore Norrington... he would fall without disgrace, and remain in the Caribbean. The only place in the world he wanted to be.' Norrington is badass at taking a single look at a port and being able to recite its defences exactly. Norrington is brilliant at reading the wind. And using the smell of the wind to tell who is coming. BAMF!Norrington, BAMF!Jack Sparrow. Funny, then sad. Bittersweet. At this point, I cannot imagine Norrington with anyone but Jack, but maybe that's what the ending is about – we don't always get what we expect, want, or deserve. Yes, this is cliché, but the ending maybe represents that life isn't fair, neither to Jack who has to let Norrington go, or to Norrington, who has to let go of Jack, the Caribbean, all his friends and his life, and for what? To live a life he doesn't want to? http:///uncharted/fics.html)

29. Moonverse by Firesignwriter (https:///horizon/library/multi/moonverse/index.html. 'Caught between a rock and a bajillion pirates, Norrington is forced to rely on Jack Sparrow's aid... and then his hospitality.' It is possibly one of the best pieces of fanfiction I've ever encountered. It shows the development of a relationship, if one might call it that. It isn't love at first sight, it isn't "everything perfect forever", and that's what it makes so good fiction in my opinion. The description of feelings sometimes is so real that it is scary. Jack isn't cheerful here, but maybe that is in part what makes it so unique – he is way more serious than people tend to think. There is a ship whose speed equals that of the Pearl, though the Pearl is still way more badass. I like this. This not-quite-dark!Jack, morally ambiguous!Jack, is very refreshing to read. Also, easy language, which was not something I thought I'd consider rare in a PotC fanfic back when I started reading them. High level flirting, and Norrington being surprisingly okay with a homosexual relationship. Jack makes a deal with another pirate: the Pearl and the Dauntless leave peacefully, if Jack leaves the Atlantic. Jack knows his Plato and Greek philosophy. Sutbly veiled smut. Honestly though, the first half is just banter. What I love about this fic is that Jack will not budge on being a pirate, and Norrington won't resign from the Navy. Mustread)

30. Another Angle on the Problem by Aris Merquoni (ArisTGD) ('Jack's had a new companion show up on his search for the Fountain of Youth, and he's not quite sure what to make of the situation.' Post-canon. Angel!Norrington. Yes, I am serious. Except Norrington was banished from heaven to earth because he needs to make things right with Jack, or some other mish-mash. Also, Barbossa makes a cameo. They find a fountain, but it is not THE Fountain of Youth, so Barbossa leaves, and then Jack finds a stalactite with a single clear drop of water on its tip, which turns out to be the Fountain of Youth Calypso then helps Norrington get back to life, on the condition that Jack does no harm while on the ocean. Calypso makes Jack and Norrington immortal. Immortal!Jack, immortal!Norrington. Pirate!Norrington. They somehow manage to still be pirates without harming anyone. That's IMPRESSIVE. Well, they're not pirates per se, they are protecting the sea, but how they do it is their own choice. Sometimes they rob cruise ships to discourage cruising and polluting the seas, sometimes they shut down some oil platforms. And the Black Pearl is still around. Love this fic)

31. Shipwreck by Penknife ('In which James goes to Shipwreck Cove with Elizabeth rather than being killed.' Brilliant fic. Very much worth the read. Bisexual!Jack, suspected asexual!Norrington. Technically Jack/Norrington, but a mix between platonic and romantic, very codependent, not sexual. Mentions of Beckett. the Dutchman, and the Kraken. Pirate!Norrington, cameos by Barbossa)

32. Perhaps by oneiriad ('Some acts of piracy are too terrible to consider.' Sparrington, angst, STDs, smut)

33. For Want of a Nail by the_dala ('When Jack Sparrow is taken ill, his care is overseen by a most unlikely person.' Sparrington, falling in love, sick!Sparrow, h/c, angst, fluff, secret relationship, Gillette/Grover. Sparrow is afraid of Norrington and of being left alone with him. Norrington's name is George. Norrington's cat dies, so Sparrow buys him a kitten. Norrington breaks Sparrow out of prison, with the help of Elizabeth, Will, Gillette, and Grover, the last of which are sleeping together. Norrington is almost amusingly like a damsel-in-distress sometimes. Happy ending. Somewhat homophobic. Light. Brilliant)

34. Your Move by pir8fancier ('James Norrington is very, very bored. And then he begins to play chess. With Jack Sparrow. Several games are played.' Sparrington, Gillette/Grover, somewhat ambiguous and angsty ending. Norrington ended up married to a woman but still loving Sparrow. Skip 'Endgame' and the two paragraphs direction preceding it to get a happy ending. Elizabeth and Will are very friendly with Norrington and Sparrow. Jack teaches Will to play chess, and he plays with James. Jack is very intelligent. There is, perhaps, just a little too little animosity between Jack and James in the beginning. Norrington has a gay crisis, and Groves and Gillette are together. Angst, h/c, hurt no comfort sometimes, falling in love, somewhat OOC Jack, brilliant)

35. White Admiral by anyasy ('What if Jack was an Admiral?' Sparrington, BAMF!Sparrow, https:///373554.html, Norrington is confused, Sparrow gets captured by pirates and about to be bid off at Tortuga but is then freed by Norrington, Bill Turner is an undercover agent at Barbossa's, brilliant)

36. The Quality of Mercy by Rachel74 (‘Captain Jack Sparrow is gifted a damaged James Norrington, by an evil pirate, that was a very bad idea on the part of said evil Captain, and so begins a journey.’ Norrington was kidnapped by a pirate and trained to be a slut but not raped, and then given to Jack Sparrow as a gift, kidnapping and attempted rape sort of recovery, brilliant)

37. A Bold Proposal by 4ce_in_sp4ce ('James had long since accepted that he would marry a wife he would never love and live life pretending to be someone he wasn't. One bold proposal and several bad ideas later though, and things are far different from anything he had ever envisioned.' Marriage of convenience for Norrington&Elizabeth, gay!Norrington, Sparrington, Will/Elizabeth. James is a gay disaster and Elizabeth is full of bad ideas. Period-typical homophobia. Skippable smut. Mustread)


Jack/Will:

1. Dropping The Anvil by Dolimir ('“Will Turner?” one of the pirates in front of him asked in shock. “Not *the* Will Turner? Do ye or do ye not know a Jack Sparrow?”The captain had lowered his pistol. “Well, bullocks.”' Jack/Will)

2. A Picture's Worth a Thousand Words. by the_dala ('“Twice the pretty,” says Jack with a shrug, hiding the sudden idea he’s gotten at how this conversation might be steered in the opportune direction. “Can’t tell me you've never had a bit of a swoon at the thought of two men together, Lizzie darling.”' Jack/Will/Elizabeth, voyeurism)

3. The Wrong Ship by Scifiroots ('"Permission to come aboard?"' Immortal!Jack, immortal!Will; Will is the captain of the Flying Dutchman, and Jack decides to sail with them, though not as a crew member but as a friend/lover to Will. Jack/Will. Will opposes this, seeing as sailing underwater will kill Jack, but thanks to the Fountain of Youth, Jack is essentially immortal. Sweet and light oneshot. Cameo by Bootstrap Bill)

4. Claiming Booty by Creed Cascade (creedcascade), Echosrevenge ('Jack and Will met up again under interesting circumstances and find their way to each other.' In which Jack introduces Will to his new crew as his old lover, and Will behaves like a scared virgin. It's honest to God a threesome: Pearl/Jack/Will. Lovely plot, but really bad smut. No, really, it sucks, trust me. Novices. I get the feeling this is partially about a guy who is betrayed by his fiancée and becomes gradually more insane with his new lover, until he can talk to ships like Jack. The one in which Jack introduces Will to Jack's crew as his former lover and will acted like a 'scared virgin'. Insane!Jack)


Crack:

1. Firecracker by the_dala ('Will entertains a pair of visitors on the night before his wedding.' Will/Elizabeth, Jack. Personally, I say asexual!Jack)

2. Two Pirates live Near Bag Ends by Mayori ('“Do you two want to be my baby’s godparents?” And while Will stumbled over his words because he and Jack are not officially a couple yet, and how could this lady just ask them, complete strangers, to be her unborn child’s godparents? Still in the background, Jack exclaimed: “Excellent!”' Badass!Bilbo, Jack/Will, Bagginshield, crossover with the Hobbit. Hilarious)

3. A Most Awkward Conversation by actressen ('Some of the many characters played by Johnny Depp over the years meet at an unexplained dinner party. Featuring Jack Sparrow, Sweeney Todd, Victor van Dort, Edward Scissorhands, Willy Wonka, and the Mad Hatter.' Gen; total insanity and utter crack. This brings up an excellent point: why does Depp only play crazy roles? Not that that's bad, those roles are the ones he excels at, but HOW DOES HE DO THAT)

4. The Father, the Daughter and the Holy Ghost by KKGlinka ('A younger Weatherby Swann is visited by an impossible pirate fleet in the midst of dinner.' This fic is a mess: parts of this fic are completely logical and easy to understand, but the other parts are the biggest mindfuck I've ever read. Seriously, trying to figure out the plot and the time travel thing is like trying to dance ballet in hunting shoes. I have two theories: either pre-movies Elizabeth, governor Swann, and Beckett sit down to dinner and are interrupted by future Jack, Barbossa, Elizabeth, and crew, or pre-Dead Man's Chest Elizabeth, governor Swann, and Beckett sit down to dinner and are interrupted by future Jack, Barbossa, Elizabeth, and crew)

5. How To Annoy a Commodore in Five Easy Steps by Kantayra ('Jack fucks with Norrington's head, just for the sake of annoying him.' Five short drabbles with a common plot. Implied slash. Hilarious humour)


Gen:

1. Caught by the_dala ('They've all heard tales of women who cast off their skirts to join a pirate crew, but this is the first one James has come across.' Norrington, gen, musings)

2. The Key To Immortality by TBear6000 ('Nearly five years after parting with her husband, Elizabeth finds herself and her four year old son, William, embarking on yet another journey to World's End. This time to help Jack find the Fountain of Youth and to reunite with Will.' Gen, Will/Elizabeth; ends with Jack owning the key to the Fountain of Youth but deciding, for reasons explained in the fic, not to live forever. Brilliant fic, good portrayal, random Jack)

3. Monsters by GloriaMundi ('Here there be monsters, immortal and invulnerable.' Character and thought analysis of Barbossa's final moments in CotBP)

4. Pirates for eternity by Yenneffer ('Barbossa is annoyed: both at Jack and possible situation the man has created. And maybe there’s something more to this than that?' A pirate's thoughts are higly toxic in selfishness; gen, good drabble. Implied immortal!Jack, immortal!Barbossa)

5. Shades of Time by ElnaK ('When Will can finally go and visit Elizabeth's grave, six years after her death, he is devastated. As Calypso watches her ferryman falling apart, she searches for a solution to his problem, but can only think of one thing: getting Chronos', god of time and destiny, help, for he is the distant ancestor of the Turners and the very reason they always have uncanny fates. Luckily, Chronos thought of the same thing, and together, they send Will back in time, for him to change the destiny of his past self, and, maybe, find happiness as an immortal demigod free of the duty of the captain of the Flying Dutchman.' Future Will/Norrington, but currently gen; badass!Will, BAMF!Will, immortal!Will, demigod!Will)

6. The Quality of Mercy by mundungus42 ('Norrington and his officers are courtmartialed for the loss of the Interceptor. The penalty for negligence is death by hanging, and the Admiral has it in for Norrington. Fortunately, Jack still owes him for one escape.' Pre-slash Jack/Norrington. In which Sparrow impersonates a sophisticated judge, and Norrington is too smart and self-sacrificing for his own good)

7. Freedom by icarus_chained ('Heaven is everything a man wants it to be, isn't it?' Ghost!Norrington, dead!Norrington, ghost!Jack, dead!Jack. Technically Jack/Norrington, but for me, the main theme here is the afterlife and Jack's loss and gain of freedom. They are dead, except not really. Well, they ARE dead, but they still live. Just read it. It's like 2k words, so very neat and short oneshot)

8. betwixt the devil and the deep sea by notbecauseofvictories ('His name was not always Jack Sparrow.' Demon!Jack Sparrow, fallen angel!Barbossa, good man!Will. Gen. Cameo by Calypso. If Elizabeth Swann is hellbound, she will walk there under her own power, in comfortable boots, that spade of a chin thrust out as she demands to be shown to her throne)

9. Negotiation by mimesere ('Jack only negotiates with pirates. Preslash. Manipulating conversation, very intriguing, a lot is implied or left unsaid, Jack/Norrington. Jack implies Norrington is a pirate)

10. The Deadly Sea by flugantamuso ('The last of the bodies had finally been removed, each with a bullet in its head, dropped beneath the waves to rot where even the fish wouldn't touch them.

Lucifer is her best friend. Lucifer is ridiculously powerful. 'Her best friend is the Devil. And, somehow, she's getting to be okay with that.' Lucifer refuses to work with Chloe anymore. Chloe doesn't make him vulnerable anymore when he has wings. Quite possibly the best reaction fic I've ever read because it's not just swept under a the rug. Chloe actually considers the consequences of Lucifer being powerful. Lucifer's winds cause him to hear all prayers to him. Chloe is pissed at God, and for good reason. '"Has anyone ever told you that your closet is obscene?" Seriously, it's bigger than her bedroom. He seems to own enough zillion dollar suits to, if they were liquidated, surpass the gross domestic product of a small country.' 'He sounds dumbfounded. Like he's not sure how he's existing in a world where this apology is required, and did he miss the exit ramp back to reality somewhere? Is he lost? Where is the Google Maps edition for dimension-hopping archangels?' Hilarious at times. Chloe helps Lucifer cut the wings off. Excruciating and brilliant descriptions of the act itself, as well as the aftermath. Michael stalked Chloe and tried to convince Lucifer to fall and be human and have free will. Lucifer falls, but not the 'become human' kind of fall, but the 'thrown out of Heaven' kind of fall. Good said to Lucifer: 'So be it, you contemptible ingrate. Don't expect this offer again. I wash my hands of you.' Lucifer gave up on God. The last chapter is smut, but easily skippable. Mustread!)

66. Blind Faith by FluffyGlitterPantsDragon ('Chloe and Lucifer are trapped underground.' One shot. Wingfic, trapped undergrounf, BAMF!Lucifer, devil reveal, Deckerstar, very well-written)

67. You're Just You and I'm Just Me by Psychicninja90 ('To celebrate New Year's the precinct family decides to spend some quality time together.

While Chloe attempts to come to terms with her newfound knowledge that Heaven and Hell truly do exist, Lucifer makes a hasty decision that only brings about more harm than good. (A The Deckerstar Network Secret Santa Gift Exchange Fic)' I skimmed through this one, but it seems good. The ending has Lucifer and Chloe's wedding, and Gabriel and Raphael watching, and Gabriel saying that Lucifer will age and die with Chloe, and that thirty-two years into the future, they will die in a car accident and both go to heaven, Deckerstar)

70. I'll Do Better by ruxian ('Lucifer Morningstar is a man of his word. When he made a promise to Chloe that he would tell her everything, he meant it. Even if he's not sure what that means anymore.

Wingfic, devil reveal, Deckerstar, post 2x18)

71. Free the Devil from Pain by Navaros ('"Looks like those sick bastards sewed the prosthetics onto his back." Sick indeed. Chloe wanted to vomit at that thought, the bile already rising in her throat. "Give me a few more minutes, I'll free the wings too. I can't cut them loose in this position." And with that the young forensic expert was back at work.' Chloe, Dan, and Ella think that the wings are prosthetics, and then discover that they're not. Wingfic, devil reveal, very good fic although the punctuation and overuse of caps is annoying. 'Lucifer is kidnapped. When the LAPD finally find him he is barely concious and pinned to the wall of a forgotten warehouse like a butterfly, blood pooling beneath his feat. They think the wings spread behind him are part of the kidnappers twisted sense of humour. They are not.' Very good)

75. 60 Seconds of Silence by Sanoiro ('In the era of camera surveillance, Chloe Decker finds how *team* effort worked to save her in 2x13. This was not what she had in mind when she was told that Lucifer had gotten a hold of the formula through unconventional means.'

81. ~ Supernatural / Lucifer ~ by liane1787 ('Lucifer from 'Lucifer' gets sucked into the SPN world and runs across the Winchesters. When his Cas was a fledgling, Lucifer had tons of fun teaching him to be naughty until Michael (boring) put his foot down. So even though he knows this isn't his Cas, it still causes him anguish to see how run down Cas is. He decides he's saving his little brother, and begins to take care of Cas, getting him back on his feet and amusing himself by flirting with Sam - not getting that the SPN Lucifer has tortured Sam until Cas tells him to knock it off - and sassily dressing Dean down for not taking better care of his angel.

She had to know. “Well- Naturally,” Aunt Zelda said, drawing herself up like a hen resettling its feathers. “Edward was High Priest of the Church of Night. He- We were always led to believe he had a direct line to-” “...no, don’t remember any of that,” Lucifer interrupted. “Tall man, beard, rather marvellous shoulders? I remember him.

103. Ella Enlightened by Liannabob ('It was a feather. A really filthy-looking feather - broken and bent, but still wide and about as long as her hand. It was too big to belong to a seagull, and it didn’t make any sense for it to be here, in the middle of the precinct. Ella picked it up, oddly compelled despite the old blood caked on it. -or- An exploration of the Ella & Lucifer friendship, in which Ella uses forensics to figure out that he's maybe not a method actor after all. Set after the season 3 finale and after "Boo Normal."' Post-season 3, not canon-compliant with season 4 and onwards. Lucifer is down because he's drunk all his whiskey. Ella cheers him up. Lucifer and Dan have a very competitive relationship, and it's hard to tell whether the attraction is brotherly or sexual. Maze&Ella&Linda have girls' night out. Ella takes the devil revelation really well, all things considered, and helps Lucifer clean and preen his wings. Lucifer&Ella, background Lucifer/Chloe. Brilliant)

1. i think of what the world could be by braille_upon_my_skin ('Phillip lifts a hand to Barnum's hair, and Barnum relaxes into the touch, his eyes closing as he wordlessly allows Phillip to comb dripping fingers through the dark waves. "You worry about me," Phillip murmurs softly. "It all comes with the part," Barnum replies. "And, which part would that be?" Barnum laughs low in his throat, though his smile is sincere. "Your partner, of course."' Barnum/Philip)

2. A Map Called Home by Kibbers ('Phillip's life is all mapped out for him, borders keeping those his father doesn't approve of out. This map he calls misery, and he's resigned to live it out like he's meant to. That is, until P.T. Barnum comes to town with a whole new map, one that just might include love, in the end.' Barnum/Philip, belonging, finding home, mild smut)

3. Runaways in the Night by wolfzaa ('After all these years of being a nanny, Hannah had never been this worried about any child she had raised. Of all the three Carlyle kids she took care of, of all children she was hired to look after, Phillip was the sweetest yet the most unpredictable child she had ever met. * They said it was an opening show; nobody told her that it was, actually, the ringmasters’ dance.' Philip's childhood, the circus, Barnum/Philip, family drama, character study)

5. Little Sisters by ObservationalObsessive ('“Would you mind if I asked why you buy them so much candy?” Phillip’s instinct was to respond defensively; to tell her that he also bought them pastries and ice cream sometimes so it wasn’t just candy. But he realized that it wasn’t really a defense at all before he even started to say it. Instead, he only grew increasingly confused when he realized that he genuinely didn’t know why he did it. All he knew was that he liked the warm feeling he got in his heart when something he gave them made them so happy.' Philip/Anne, Barnum/Charity, sweet cute family fluff, Philip&Charity, Philip&Caroline&Helen, candy, older brothers, younger sisters)

6. Confirmed Bachelor, Philip Carlyle by Impossibly_Izzy ('Philip had attempted to squash his feelings for men and encourage his feelings for women, but somehow he’d never managed to get rid of the belief that he would never get married. He’d never met a woman who he could imagine building a home with. That is, until he made eye contact with a pink-haired girl suspended in the air by trapeze wires.' Homophobia, Barnum/Philip, Philip/Anne, the Carlyles, very good)

7. (i hope you know) you're my home by just2AMthings ('Barnum gathers his wits and makes up his mind.

Phantom of the Opera:

Erik/Raoul:

1. Reluctantly Willing by Lucifer Rosemaunt ('General discontent runs through the characters as they are forced to adjust their views of happily ever after.' Best Erik/Raoul so far, post-POTO, the one where Raoul found Erik beat up in an alley and nursed him back to health, Christine did the engaged to be engaged thing, Christine left and was jarred when she had to be a hooker for drunk guys to survive, and Erik and Raoul lived on the Chagny estate. Comparisons to L'Homme Qui Rit. Very good)

2. A New Phase by Lucifer Rosemaunt ('Erik knows Raoul is hiding something, but what he finds is not at all what he expected.' Erik/Raoul pre-slash. Werewolf!Raoul. Note: Lucifer Rosemault is the Supreme Ruler of Erik/Raoul, and if you ever think of an Erik/Raoul fic, search in their FFN)

3. Time: Beginnings by Lucifer Rosemaunt ('Christine runs away.' Gets very slashy later on. Erik/Raoul, Christine is a bit of a bitch here, so warning. Raoul&Philippe, Erik&Philippe in later parts. Note: Lucifer Rosemault is the Supreme Ruler of Erik/Raoul, and if you ever think of an Erik/Raoul fic, search in their FFN)

4. By the Light of a Votive by ConvenientAlias ('“Did you wish to speak to me?” the Phantom asks. He sits back down at the grand piano. His fingers rest on the keys. He does not play. “Christine is dead.” The Phantom nods. He does not look surprised. But then, he will not look Raoul in the face either. Or, the one where Raoul returns to Paris a lonely man, and Erik has always been lonely.' Preslash to slash Erik/Raoul, past Erik/Christine and past Christine/Raoul, angst, death, not a fix-it, mustread!)

5. Changing You(r Aesthetic) by ConvenientAlias ('“I really don’t see why you expect me to celebrate with you,” Raoul complained when Erik offered him a glass of wine. “This might be like a good night for you but actually for me it’s going pretty badly. I’m pretty sure you gave me a black eye.” Written in response to the prompt: "RAOUL RUINS THE LAIR VIBE."' Crack, humour, funny, preslash Erik/Raoul, serenades, aesthetic, Faust, kidnapping, cute, very well-written)

6. Hideaway by ConvenientAlias ('The Vicomte’s disappearance occurred only a week after the dropping of the chandelier. A week and he was gone. Erik wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt—maybe he left Paris because of ailing relatives far away, or because the doctor recommended it, or because it was his custom at this time of year—but circumstances being what they were, he had very few doubts from which Raoul could benefit. A week after the dropping of the chandelier…and of course the unpleasant conversation that followed…no, that could not be a coincidence. It was practically certain that Raoul was running away.' The one where Raoul takes the role of Christine and is kidnapped by Erik and stuff, and he runs away, and Erik chases him to the cottage. Erik/Raoul. Very well-written)

7. A Beautiful Soul by allstring ('As the new patron of the Palais Garnier, Raoul de Chagny has heard the rumors of a fearsome Phantom that lurks in the dark corners of the opera house. Determined to find this specter, he ventures down to the dungeon, ready to confront this Phantom. Instead of finding a demon, however, he finds something rather different; an angel.' Short and to the point, no Christine/Raoul or Erik/Christine. Preslash Erik/Raoul, somewhat creepy because Erik is as Erik does, dungeons, singing, music, sweet in a way, Erik is sassy, very well-written)

8. How to run an Opera by Radartanten ('Raoul is the new patron at the Opera Populaire. He is dead set on getting the Opera back on it's feet. He accidentally falls through a trapdoor in the stage set for La Carlotta and meets the Phantom. Both Raoul and the Phantom want to make the Opera grand once again, and that's a start of an odd partnership.' Smut, OOC, Erik/Raoul, but the idea is interesting. Food for thought. Write a similar but IC thing later? Humour, funny, crack in a way, somewhat hidden homophobic behaviour, sassy Raoul, not that dark Erik, explicit, fluff, partnership, love for music, very good in a way)

9. I Hold With Those Who Favor Fire by ConvenientAlias ('“I’ll catch you up,” the Phantom said. He had stepped away from Raoul now, and begun to pace the small chamber, lantern revealing it to be barely six by eight feet. “Last night you stupidly blundered into the middle of a discussion between Miss Daae and myself. We were discussing our future together when you showed up. She had her doubts. I told her that if she would stay with me as my bride I would release you, and if she did not I would kill you as an intruder.” Raoul licked his lips. “What happened then?” The Phantom shrugged and smiled a crooked little smile. “Well, monsieur, I’ll let you guess.” Easy enough. Raoul fingered the chains. “You broke your promise to her to release me.” "Mm." Or, the one with a kidnapping and its aftermath.' Explicit Erik/Raoul smut. The one where Erik lies about the fact that Christine chose him and proceeds to tell Raoul 'dirty details', except that results in smut, whereas Christine has chosen to leave Raoul for the dead rather than choose Erik. Raoul has quite a severe, if subtle and well-written, case of Stockholm syndrome. Erik eventually sets Raoul free. Not a fix-it, but much better. Lies, angst, hurt no comfort, h/c. Mustread!)

10. Bloodless Doll by ConvenientAlias ('When you began observing Raoul de Chagny in earnest, the oddities added up surprisingly quickly. A hypnotic voice. Unnaturally pale skin. Utter refusal to go to the opera house except at night. And a certain reserve that indicated he was hiding a secret. Erik wanted to know what that secret was.' Erik/Raoul preslash, vampire!Raoul, Erik is a stalker, background early Christine/Erik, Erik is possessive, Raoul is Pure and Precious, very well-written)

11. Compliance by ConvenientAlias ('Erik puts his hands on Raoul’s waist and Raoul already wants to be gone. He says, “Christine is waiting for me. I said I would meet her after the show.” “Yes,” Erik purrs. “But you came to me first.”' Stockholm Syndrome, just a little bit of it, background Christine/Raoul, creepy Erik. Erik/Raoul, implied sexual content, dubcon or noncon)

13. How Do You See Me? by Dork5ever612 ('It was both the best and the worst day of his life, when he met… him. At the time Erik had rolled his eyes and snarled at the vicomte, absolutely despising him. Now, however, he smiles and shakes his head a bit, amused at how stupid he had been. Turning to look at Raoul, he couldn’t imagine having hated him. Raoul turns to face him when he feels his gaze, giving him a soft smile. It all started when he’d first seen the vicomte, really. The patron’s chestnut blond hair and foggy blue eyes drew his attention… and now— well, they’re what he calls home.' Blind!Raoul, Erik/Raoul, the one where Madame Giry is running interference and fearing for Raoul and trying to stop Erik from meeting him. Raoul is always accompanied by Philippe, who describes everything for him. Philippe describes Erik as 'quite attractive' without his mask, which stuns Erik, fluff. The one where Erik eventually agrees to go with Raoul and live with the brothers and gets engaged to be married to Raoul in the last chapter. Everyone Is Gay. No Smut. No Sex. Tooth-Rotting Fluff. Light Angst. Philippe is hilarious. Wingman Philippe. Erik has Feelings. Erik is a Sweetheart. Erik is Crushing Harder than a 12-year Old Girl. (This is a… unique use of these tags.) Protective Erik. No murder. Erik doesn't kill he falls in love. Falling In Love. Idiots in Love. Love Confessions, very well-written)

14. Christmas Tradition by Lucifer Rosemaunt ('Alcohol and mistletoe, what more could you ask for?' Christmas balls, Erik is invited mostly as a joke but still shows up, Erik/Raoul)

15. Compliance by ConvenientAlias ('Erik puts his hands on Raoul’s waist and Raoul already wants to be gone. He says, “Christine is waiting for me. I said I would meet her after the show.” “Yes,” Erik purrs. “But you came to me first.”' Erik has control of the entire opera and plays everyone like a fiddle. Everyone eventually bends to his will and kind of falls in love with him in their own ways, ER, background RC)

16. Surpassing Predjudice by Typewriter15 ('After Christine breaks their engagement, Raoul sits in despair alone on top of the rooftop of the Paris Opera House. What if two men can surpass their prejudices towards each other, and realize that they are not that different from one another?' ER, past EC and RC, somewhat OOC and too quick relationship development, the one where the Persian Shah has ordered a hit on Erik and Raoul protects him)

17. i want to complicate you by HaveYouSeenATimeLord ('Meg: Raoul tweeted and it said “i’m sad about hot guys who don’t know they’re hot” and i was like. it’s mister broody mask guy isn’t it? and now he’s at my house drinking a lot of diet coke and attempting to play those compositions you left by the piano last week.' ER. Erik is 'just a set designer', as well as 'lighting designer, sound designer, costume designer, fight choreographer, accompanist, and occasional composer'. Modern AU, opera AU, deformity and mask and all. No insanity. Erik&Christine friendship. Erik is 'gayer than Grantaire,’ although he is 'lacking an Enjolras at the moment'. Raoul is also gay as hell. Erik really freaking loves genuine grand pianos and ivory keys. Smut)

1. More of an Aminta by ConvenientAlias ('Christine and Raoul rehearse "Point of No Return" together, even though Raoul was never meant to be a Don Juan. But Erik is watching, and for the first time finds their chemistry together something other than infuriating. The way they complement each other is beautiful. Of course, being Erik, he decides to make that beauty his own. By putting Raoul into his opera.' Erik's POV is brilliant. Notes for IC characterization of Erik. Erik runs the opera house like a master. Madame Giry actually comes down to Erik's lair. Chapter names are hilarious. Erik speaks music and acting and opera all the time. Erik eventually kidnaps Raoul and makes him watch the opera with Erik from Box Five. Raoul doesn't react negatively to Erik's face. Piangi is a very likeable character who supports Raoul throughout the fic. Truly poetic at times. Great descriptions. 'The Phantom didn’t want to kill or kidnap Raoul or her, and he didn’t want to destroy the opera house, and he might be cranky at the managers but so was everyone else so that hardly mattered.' It's a happy ending, and though Erik loves Raoul and may or may not still love Christine, he desires Raoul only, but it's unclear whether it's sexual. The title only makes sense after you finish 80% of the fic, and you only really look at it once you're done. The title literally says 'Erik is in love with Raoul'. Describes plot of Don Juan Triumphant for the most part. Erik/Raoul/Christine. Best POTO fix it fic to date. If Lucifer Rosemaunt is the queen of Erik/Raoul, then ConvenientAlias is the queen of all things POTO, mustread!)

The girl, Meg, was perhaps eight or nine and had long blond hair that was pinned up and wore a flower pattern shorts and a t-shirt with a music note on it. She was probably the man’s daughter, hmmm…bummer. Why did the hot ones always have to be married?' Asexual!Erik/Raoul/Christine)

4. All I Ask of You by angelus2hot ('Set after the movie, Christine realizes she can't live without her soul and she refuses to live without her heart.' One of the best POTO fics, and a wonderfully in-character execution of E/R/C. '“I want to be with the both of you. If that makes me selfish then fine I’ll admit I’m selfish. You are my heart. And you are my very soul. I can’t live without either of you. I refuse to."' Angst, h/c, fluff at the end. Mustread!)

Erik/Raoul/Christine, asexual!Erik, sex repulsed!Erik)

9. Prothétique by thegreatgayjatsby ('In which Raoul de Chagny finds the progress of the medical fields of the world intriguing, and presents Erik with a gift.' Polyamory. Domestic Fluff. Canon Era. Post canon. Erik's Birthday. Redemption arc for Erik. Kissing. Established Relationship. Slice of Life. Mild Hurt/Comfort, h/c, angst. Erik is really into childish things like stuffed animals and candy, E/R/C, canon, mask, Erik loves the gift, brilliant)

10. From Bondage to Broth by ConvenientAlias ('“You are not putting the Vicomte in my bed. I sleep there.” “You should have considered that before giving him hypothermia.” Or, the fic where Raoul has hypothermia and the Phantom has to deal with it.' R/C, a bit of E/R/C, Erik is Awkward, BAMF!Christine, in-character, Raoul just Goes with it, brilliant)

1. And Should I Turn Away by DreamFlight ('In that climatic moment upon the stage, what might have happened had Christine not wrenched the mask from the man who haunted her? A story of what if.' Christine doesn't knock off Erik's mask, Raoul is heartbroken and kind of just Leaves, no evil!Raoul, Raoul is very well-written, Erik kind of manipulates himself into being the leading baritone/tenor. The managers are audacious and actually make Erik attend the rehearsals, and Erik makes use of the stage for Christine's singing lessons. Erik is weird and creepy but kind. Erik characterization comparison. Erik writes the Phantom of the Opera, and then the opera house performs it. He removes his mask during Stranger Than You Dreamt It. Eventual EC, Christine is very independent. Erik produces an opera each year, sings in them, and trains new singers. Erik somehow turns popular with the people. Mustread)

Trapping them in a storage room, Valjean and Javert struggle against the force seeking amusement through their pain, as well as their own volatile relationship.' First, Erik nearly drowns them, before throwing them into his torture chamber. Valjean spares Erik, even as Javert knocks off Erik's mask.

Javert using Deduction(TM). Valjean is caught and arrested by Chabouillet after their meeting with Thénardier.

Javert doesn't want to go and a veritable sass-battle of wills ensues. There's also fluff and wine and scowling and pathetic excuses.' Sweet, cute, post-canon, canon era Valjean/Javert. In which Javert takes every opportunity to express dislike of Marius, and Valjean is the best 'bitch please so done with your shit' old french dude you've ever met, also Cosette is a cutie and Marius gets drunk, crack, very good)

59. Café Marais by spiderfire ('Javert finds a hole-in-the-wall coffeeshop that he grows slowly attached too. Although it might be the owner.

60. A Reflection of Starlight by AutumnGracy ('Curiosity causes Valjean to seek out Javert after he leaves him at his house, and what he sees at the river changes everything he thought he knew about the man. Now they must struggle to understand one another (and themselves) as their worlds come crashing down around them.' Canon era, very slow build Valjean/Javert. Demiromantic!Valjean, romani!Javert, case fic, hurt!Valjean, hurt!Javert, asexuality. Javert has a mental breakdown, and not the light kind – the hysteric laughter, lack of understanding, loss of reality kind. Seriously suicidal Javert. Dark, delicious. I recommend listening to the sound recommendations. Alternate title: Tu vas me détruire. 'Javert didn’t know what else to do, so he just hissed at him as he left.' 'Valjean had never asked himself what the man might be like personally—if there was anything more to him than that cold exterior—and he was beginning to worry that no one ever had.' Ah. I finally realize the problem: Valjean opens Javert's eyes to the world, we all knew that before, but it forces Javert to bear the burden of a conscience. Excellent psychological analysis in this fic. Javert's dreams are very symbolic: Valjean steals his heart (literally, pulls it out of Javert's chest), and the dream!police officers are like 'he was such a good officer but he's useless now because he lacks resolve', and kill him, and the only 'alive' part of him is the heart Valjean took, and he's symbolically forevermore bound to Valjean. Actually dealing with Fantine's death and how unfair it was. Brilliant reflection of Javert's realization. Javert had suddenly seen convicts as people. Where could he turn, in such a world, aware now of himself? Aware of the misery inherent in the very system he’d sworn fealty to? Valjean had been there. He had felt that pain of revelation before. He had turned once, and found himself a cruel, regardless man, and startled. Another good reason to be sad about Javert's suicide. Mustread!)

He hires eponine, the viciously streetsmart ivy scholarship child as the head political strategist together with Cosette, communications director. They are backed increasingly openly by Marius, the eldest son from a long line of rich republicans, himself bedazzled by enjolras from their days at university. Along for the ride is Grantaire, a hardened political journalist who appears to function exclusively on caffeine and alcohol, who trusts all politicians only to the extent that he can throw them but somehow finds himself thinking that maybe, just maybe, his messiah has come.'

Except, then they keep trying to meet up with him at school/in town and find out that Enjolras is only interested in having fun, knowing the best clubs, consistently skipping class, casually hooking up with everything on two legs, etc. Basically, like that section of the Brick where they describe Grantaire's knowledge base except instead of being cynical, Enjolras is still really charming and kind of obnoxiously cheerful. The others assume that it's because he doesn't remember their past life and try to trigger his memories. Except when they approach him, it turns out that he does remember their past life together, which is precisely why he's decided to leave serious things aside- after all, don't they remember that it was the very passion they all so admire that got them all killed?'

When people came along who did have strong abilities, when they decided to stand up and proclaim to the community that they wished to serve as protection, they weren’t always accepted graciously.

It was practically the duty of a precognitive to tell people, “yeah, that’s not going to work,” when he could quite literally see it fail.

They decide to see if they can prove their point, instead, by placing Javert in a pretend prison situation with other volunteers and seeing what happens at the end of two weeks.' Very interesting psychological study. Gen, non-slash. 'Those men were criminals anyway' goddammitJavertIwannapunchyou. Rule nr 10 will be the chief problem, I can sense it. Wolves eating wolves. You can see how they're gradually beginning to refer to each other only by number. Fångens dilemma – if everybody did as Javert did, there would be no trouble, but as soon as one prisoner knocks off the 'everything equal for everyone' balance, everything goes to hell. 'It was like talking to a wall. Or Javert.' Valjean is the only sane person left. 'You are aware that none of this is real, are you not?' Valjean is 200% DONE with his own experiment. The prisoners as well as the guards are slowly losing grip of reality. Stockholm syndrome. Javert doesn't learn as much as Valjean hoped he would. Mustread!)

He might never have known if it hadn't been for that newspaper article.' Canon era, canonical death, Valjean&Javert, angst, hurt no comfort)
