okay, time to clean out the bookmarks -- non-Avengers-related favorites first. 10 recs in 10 fandoms, slash/het/gen

At Home With Lady Damerel, by [archiveofourown.org profile] brutti_ma_buoini, Venetia (Georgette Heyer), Venetia/Damerel,~3100 words, Teen === Venetia & Damerel are (initial meet-not-so-cute aside) my favorite of Heyer's couples. I love that they're very clear-sighted about themselves and each other, but they still become friends. That lays the path for their romance, which is one of my most favorite tropes. This picks up after their marriage and is really just perfect.

dwarves are very upsetting, by [archiveofourown.org profile] empressearwig, Bet Me / Into the Woods, Min/Calvin, ~3600 words, Teen === Min's dream has a familiar, Broadway bent to it.

Unwritten Rules, by [archiveofourown.org profile] lyra_wing, Almost Human, Dorian/Kennex, ~4700 words, Mature === John and Dorian and feeeeeeeelings. All totally in character, ♥

Forty-Two, by [archiveofourown.org profile] knitmeapony, The Unusuals / Warehouse 13, gen, ~1500 words === Delahoy calls in a consult wrt Banks & his issues about 42.

measure a year, by [archiveofourown.org profile] noplacespecial, The Unusuals, Walsh/Shraeger, ~4800 words, Teen === Walsh & Shraeger dancing around each other, chronicled through a year of birthdays (and one that didn't quite make it.)

One Night Stands and Vanilla Cupcakes, by [archiveofourown.org profile] redtoes, Arrow, Feliciy/Oliver, ~16,000 words, Explicit === Oliver wakes up and smells the coffee when presented with evidence of Felicity actually having a life outside of Team Arrow. Dig thinks it's about damn time.

Five Times Oliver Held Felicity (And The One Time She Held Him), by [archiveofourown.org profile] ageless_aislynn, Arrow, Feliciy/Oliver, ~3400 words, Teen === Quick snapshots that actually manage to feel pretty true to the show's atmosphere and satisfy my Olicity cravings at the same time. This happens far less often than you might think.

always room in life for this, by [archiveofourown.org profile] Siria, Bourne Legacy, Marta/Aaron, ~936 words, Teen === Marta and Aaron find a place.

Reconstruction Site, by [archiveofourown.org profile] disco_vendetta, Pacific Rim, Raleigh/Mako, ~8300 words, Teen === Raleigh and Mako (and Herc and Newt and Hermann) adjust to life after the Rift. Generally, movies that are all about giant robots punching giant monsters don't lend themselves to fluffy domesticity like this one does, but that's why we love it so much.

Come Once Again and Love Me, by [archiveofourown.org profile] janekrahe, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, Hansel/Gretel, ~7300 words, Mature === Hansel tentatively lets himself think about Gretel and who she really is to him.

My dad is watching UFC, welcome to the holiday, sigh. Have some yuletide goodness?

second squad, this is delahoy, be advised by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, The Unusuals, gen, Delahoy, 1669 words, Teen === Second Squad rallies around Delahoy, everyone in perfect character. Note the warnings, but if the show had gone this way, this is exactly how it would have played out.

A cold, beautiful truth by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, gen, team, 1578 words, Teen === Undercover snark mixed nicely with tension, gunfire and feels. Pretty much exactly what sucked me into this fandom to begin with.

On The Same Page by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, The Mummy, Evy Carnahan/Rick O'Connell, 3040 words, Teen === Evy isn't getting cold feet about her engagement, not exactly. She's just concerned that Rick doesn't understand how boring a librarian's life generally is. Rick knows better. ♥ ♥ ♥

And the Waves Clasp One Another by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, Persuasion (Jane Austen), Admiral Croft/Sophia Croft, 2065 words === Lovely story of Sophia joining her new husband aboard his ship.

Lost & Found by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, Bourne Legacy, Aaron Cross/Marta Shearing, 3678 words, Teen === I really love this take of Marta and Aaron allowing themselves to find a new life, and I really, really love where they ultimately end up.

queen and consequence by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, Princess Diaries, Nicholas Devereaux/Mia Thermopolis, 1778 words, G === Mia and Nicholas, navigating the waters of a modern romance in the public eye. A thousand bonus points for the cameo from Joe and the Queen.

Furlough by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, Arrow, gen, John Diggle & Oliver Queen & Felicity Smoak,, 3964 words, Teen === Everybody deserves a night off and Felicity has the frequent flyer miles to take care of it. Bonus points for Dig having many hidden domestic talents.

we are not your island (you are not our distant shore) by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, Arrow>, John Diggle/Oliver Queen/Felicity Smoak, 2751 words, Teen === In which Oliver is a little slow on the uptake, but he gets there in the end.

Always and Forever by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, Pern, Sean Connell/Sorka Hanrahan, 1078 words, G === Sean and Sorka through the years. Actual drabbles, be still my heart.

In the second house on the left by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, The Scarlet Pimpernel, gen, 1162 words, G === Chauvelin does not give up easily; the Pimpernel accepts the challenge.

Peppermint by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Yukon Cornelius/Hermey, 1454 words, G === Y'all! This is so adorable and sweet and, just, full of love and caring. I swear it will not scar your childhood.

Repercussions by [archiveofourown.org profile] Anonymous, Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, gen, 5025 words, Mature === Post-canon, Hansel deals (not so well) with missing Mina while Gretel has more important things on her mind.

From perusing the flist/circle, I gather that it is once again time for the Top Ten On AO3 meme, with optional kudo listing.

Top 10 by hits )

Top 10 by kudos )

So, drawing conclusions... I don't know? (You're shocked, I'm sure.) There's a mix of het, slash, and gen-ish romance in there, as well as a mix of fandoms. There are a couple of "big" pairings (McDanno, J2, Wincest) but the rest are a pretty varied set, so I'm guessing people are good with my love of picking out an odd couple and going for it (she says as she gets back to the Bruce/Clint that's languishing in g-docs...)

...or close enough to have cleared out my inbox to call it good and give it a month or so to fill back up (and to give me a chance to fb the SPN/J2 BB writers.) I knew I had a lot, but I didn't really think I'd let it get quite this bad!

fic and vids from the Avengers, The Mummy, Bourne Legacy, The Unusuals, The Losers, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, and Hawaii Five-0 )

Summary: The unspoken parts between them are still the hardest even if they’ve come light years from the awkward silences that swooped down on them once they’d started to believe they’d made it far enough off the grid for the adrenaline to fade.
