Because sometimes I just want to read about the Rogue One crew all being okay and teaming up to rescue Jyn’s daughter.

Baby, You Need To Come Home, by aewgliriel

“I’m sorry I stole your blaster.”

He let out a pained half-laugh. “Which time?”

So, it’s raining? And I searched for the word ‘rain’ in my pinboard bookmarks, and I had no idea I’d once bookmarked a ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ AU. But lo!

smells like leather and rain, by haribo

(They meet for the first time when she’s in ripped jeans she had to rip herself because they got caught in a fence, he’s in heavy black boots that look warm, and she steals from him. He lets her.)

Short(-er than most time travel AUs I've read) Star Wars time travel AU — Mace Windu’s chapter made me laugh, which definitely rates a rec!

this is unexpected, by MarbleGlove

Qui-Gon Jinn at least looked as unnerved as any of them at the current situation. Possibly even more unnerved, since in addition to everything else, he also found himself in the unusual position of *not* being the most irritating trouble-maker standing before the council at the moment.

Somehow this week I stumbled back into reading Labyrinth fic, which is always a surprise. And I realized I had apparently never bookmarked that one where Sarah becomes the librarian at Hogwarts, which was also a surprise.

Of Dreamers and Journeys, by Mystical_Magician

The Labyrinth changed Sarah in more ways than one. Seven years later she finds herself the librarian at Hogwarts. And she is so much more than the Muggle they believe her to be.

Between Stimulus and Response (There Is A Space), by blackidyll

My first thought after I finished reading this fic was ‘I enjoyed that so much more than I thought I would!’

Plus, cats! (PS the cats are briefly in danger but are totally okay!)

“What the hell.” It’s not a question, but Q figures the way she’s phrased it works well enough: What the hell are you doing, and what the hell are you doing here.

Wonder Woman fic!

i don’t know where i’m going but i’m on my way, by alchemystique

There are so many great fics out there right now, it’s amazing — a wealth of choices. Gotta love Steve heckling Bruce Wayne about the bat thing, though.

“This is crazy, you all are crazy, and I have no idea what you’re trying to accomplish but if Diana thinks you’re worth her time you gotta have something going for you. And speaking of Diana, I always thought her armor was out there, but you fight crime dressed up as a bat, pal, that’s weird.”

And now that it really *is* Friday, another fic rec! (Huge thanks to bluemeridian, whose pinboard page brings great joy!)

I’m waiting through the weekend before I start in with the Wonder Woman fics, since most are full of spoilers. So here’s the Guardians of the Galaxy, visiting Peter’s family on Earth:

guess who just got back today, by irnan

“All right,” said Louisa sharply. “That’s enough, this a family dinner –”

“Well yeah, that’s why we’re fighting,” said Peter.

An early fic rec!

Close Your Eyes, Give Me Your Hand, by speakpirate

(Gilmore Girls, set post reunion special)

Absolute favorite line:

“I don’t think it happens to everyone,” Lane is saying. “No one ever assumes you and I are a couple.”

So, you know, heads up and all — this fic is LONG and also still in-progress, and I haven’t finished it yet. But it’s the reason I didn’t post this morning, because it has Eaten My Day.

Of Queens, Knights, and Pawns, by chancecraz

Based off of amarielah’s tumbler promt “I need a Peggy Sue fic where TFA!Leia’s consciousness is sent back into ANH!Leia’s body and she decides that the only way to save her future son is to save her biodad from being an evil prick before he commits suicide-by-Sheev. Which is hard when she hates his guts and would happily kill him herself.”

My reading has been kind of all over the place this week, doing a lot of bookmark hopping on AO3. I thought I’d read this one before, but maybe not?

Go Ask Arthur, by fictionalcandie

Ariadne huffs, frustrated, because Eames doesn’t seem the least bit concerned that Arthur is apparently stalking him (or possibly some kind of mind-reading alien wizard), but she steps aside so he can finish making his tea, and goes back over to draft more impossible loops in things.

Avengers fic, circa 2014! Sometimes I cannot even, and so I put in a load of laundry and read a fic.

Living On My Own, by rekishi

“James Barnes is back in the world and finds that not only has there been 1) an alien invasion, but 2) Howard Stark had a kid. One that dispenses unsolicited life advice, no less. Oh, and 3) Captain America is alive again, after getting himself killed by his own recklessness in a move so stupid only Steve could have come up with it. In which James learns to do laundry, turns into an accidental neighborhood vigilante and makes Tony Stark a happy grease monkey, all while he figures out where to stake his claim.”

Harry Potter again! A post-War fic where Harry moves in with Andromeda to help with Teddy.

The Years Before Love, by Lomonaaeren

Today is rain, and a second cup of tea without nasty potions in it, and Andromeda talking softly to him about her own childhood—it was hemlock, but otherwise his guesses about what plants would be on Black teacups were right on the mark—and then Teddy crying imperiously to remind them what’s really important here.

Sometimes it’s just nice to go back and hang out in the Harry Potter fandom.

In Which Harry is Magnetic North and Draco Is An Idiot, by bryoneybrynn

Potter waved a dismissive hand at him. “That part’s not hard. Just Floo them up and say, ‘Hello, I know we haven’t spoken in ten years and we hated each other’s guts back at Hogwarts, but would you like to come a party with me to help me piss off my father?’”

marcicat: (froggy heart)

Since yesterday was Star Wars day, how about some happy Star Wars fics? (I have probably recced all of these before, but re-reads are always fun!)

things to keep you warm and dry, by wordslinging

“If you’ve got time to speculate about my social life, you’ve got time to find something useful to do,” Poe returns.

this is a day of rest, by notcaycepollard

“You two,” he says when he gets his breath back, and he’s pretty sure he’s not imagining the smug look that they both give him in return. “All ‘what’s a rest day’ and ‘oh Poe, can we sleep in your bed’. I see how it is.”

i really really (really really) really like you, by notcaycepollard

“He called me buddy this morning,” Finn offers. “What does that even mean.”

tell all the truth (but tell it slant), by susiecarter

“It takes a while for Batman and Superman to work things out, once Clark comes back from the dead. Pretending to date each other in order to explain why Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent are in the same place so often? Doesn’t help as much as you might think.”

(My favorite thing about this fic is imagining the epic group text between Lois, Diana, and Martha (and probably Alfred) that must have been happening behind the scenes.)

Put on a Mask (and Fight!), by writeonclara

Author Summary:
Finn is the defector gone superhero. Rey is the ultra psychic who may or may not use her powers to hustle pool. Poe is the intrepid journalist (or sometimes: bait). Together, they fight crime!

(Or Finn and Rey do. Poe mostly gets himself kidnapped and mouths off at his captors. It’s a work in progress.)

Bonus rec, because it reminded me of that Inception fic and I found it on AO3:

Blast Boxers, by Allothi

“Forger!” Arthur says, because he’s heard that’s the way supervillains like to be addressed. “In five years, every plan you’ve had to take over Inception City has ended in abysmal failure. What makes you think today will be different?”

Apparently, Star Wars time travel WIP fix-it fics focused around episodes 1-6 are my jam right now. Who knew?

A couple weeks ago I recced Back to the Future: Episode VI The Clone Wars, by Ariel_Sojourner, which continues to entertain with new chapters.

(Right now there’s a great subplot going on where Anakin knows Luke’s his kid, and Luke knows Anakin’s his dad, but neither knows that the other knows — seriously, I’ve been lol’ing for days.)

Today’s fic rec is Ad Utrumque Paratus, by obeyingthemuse

I’m not sure where this one is going, but it deserves a rec just for the solid gold of this author summary:

It’s hard to bring balance to the Force when the only method you’ve seen is your black-cloaked psychic cyborg sorcerer dad with a severe breathing problem throwing an old man down the Death Star reactor shaft. As much as Luke would like to see the not-yet-Emperor dead, he doesn’t want to be arrested by his unusually attractive(?) war-hero dad and spend the rest of his indeterminate time in the past dropping Ewok beats in a jail cell. Also Leia would probably kill him. But not before breaking him out of jail.

So when the twins wake up on Tatooine decades in the past, they play it safe. They take over a planet, reconnect with their adoptive and real parents without weirding them out (too much), and accidentally cause the Chancellor perpetual near-death experiences.

Nailed it.

Thanks to starandrea for this rec!

you’re like a drug to me, a luxury, my sugar and gold (and you don’t even know), by moosicaldreamz

“Are we ever going to talk about how your parents think we’re dating?”

(PS: This story is about Kim and Trini — which is awesome! — but I also love that based on the movie, that question could be from any of them, about any of them.)

What is this? *Andrea wrote about sneaking snacks into detention? It’s the Power Rangers fic of my heart!

this is totally what happened (which is not the actual title of this story by starandrea)

“Oh, hey,” Billy said, like he’d forgotten they weren’t supposed to acknowledge each other too. “Jason brought snacks, but he says not to tell anyone.”

marcicat: (hug it out)

It is cloudy today. Rain later. Apparently this is helping with our drought, which is awesome in the long run and just very dreary in the present moment.

To counteract this, I’ve gone to my pinboard page and searched the word “summer.” That ought to keep me busy for a while.

First up:

last night’s dress (tiptoe out of this mess), by hito

“I’m not really dating Derek!” Stiles forces out, slamming his eyes shut. “He’s a werewolf! Because werewolves exist! Everybody I know is a werewolf!”
