In this very special edition of Fic Rec Monday, I'm sharing my fifty favorite fics from the last year. Like last year, I discovered a lot of great older fics, but this list contains only fics posted or finished in 2016 (no works in progress). There are a handful of fics from the last week of 2015 for logistical reasons.

The 100

And Hides Her Somewhere In Herself, Safe From Harm by [archiveofourown.org profile] chash (15,936 words)
Bellamy Blake & Octavia Blake, Octavia Blake & Clarke Griffin, Bellamy Blake/Clarke Griffin
Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Parent Death, Implied/Referenced Child Abuse
Summary: When Octavia Blake was six years old, her brother's dad showed up and took her brother away to live with him. She always thought he'd come back, but he never does.

And then she's fourteen, her mother dies, and Bellamy says he'll take her.
Notes: I just have a lot of sibling and found family feelings, okay?

And I Love This Place, the Enormous Sky by [archiveofourown.org profile] chash (11,247 words)
Bellamy Blake/Clarke Griffin
Alternate Universe - Canon DivergenceGrounder Bellamy BlakeArranged Marriage
Summary: The Skaikru needs an ally, and the Delphi Clan is willing. It might not be their tradition to seal such alliances with a marriage, but Clarke Griffin has always done what her people need. Bellamy can't help admiring that.

So he goes with her.
Notes: I'm so weak to grounder!Blake AUs and arranged marriage AUs and headcanons about different clans (you guys they're descended from an archivist who kept a massive library in his bunker how could I not adore that, I mean really).

when the moon explodes or floats away by [archiveofourown.org profile] chash (11,672 words)
Bellamy Blake/Clarke Griffin, Clarke Griffin & Raven Reyes & Bellamy Blake & Nathan Miller
Alternate Universe - Hogwarts, Friendship, Minor Monty Green/Nathan Miller, Minor Raven Reyes/Roan, Implied/Referenced Self-Harm
Summary: Those cunning folks use any means to achieve their ends.

(Or, a loose Slytherin Marauders AU.)
Notes: The definitive Bellarke Hogwarts AU.

Check Please! (Webcomic)

Imagine Sisyphus Happy by [archiveofourown.org profile] coyotesuspect (11,889 words)
Kent Parson/Jack Zimmermann, Eric Bittle/Jack Zimmermann
Shitty Knight, Larissa "Lardo" Duan, Justin "Ransom" Oluransi, Adam "Holster" Birkholtz, John Johnson
Summary: Two years after signing for the Providence Falconers, Jack retires from the NHL.
Notes: This is achingly sad and lovely.

Chronicles of Narnia

Our Battle Cry Shall Be: 'At Least Our Leader Means Well' by [archiveofourown.org profile] paperclipbitch (7,043 words)
Caspian/Peter Pevensie
Susan Pevensie, Edmund Pevensie, Lucy Pevensie
movieverse, Angst, Coming of Age, Underage Drinking, Growing Up, Daddy Issues, Resentment, just a lot of feelings
Summary: “I am worthless,” Caspian hissed, anger slipping out in his despair, “I am fatherless, and I am so very tired. Isn’t that enough for you?”
Notes: I'm more of a Caspian/Edmund shipper, usually, but good lord, this makes sense.


I Won't Move the Heaven's for You and You'll Pretend to Forget Me by [archiveofourown.org profile] victoriousscarf (17,777 words)
Dick Grayson/Damian Wayne
Bruce Wayne, Alfred Pennyworth, Alternate Universe - Character Swap
Summary: Damian isn't sure how he's ended up in this strange version of the 1960s, but he wants to go home to his Gotham. He wants his own father back and his own Grayson, not this kid in the bright yellow cape.

Even if it does seem like his instinct to care about and protect Grayson seems to cross the dimensions themselves.
Rec Notes: This worldbuilding is amazing and I cannot begin to tell you how lovely the universe smashing is.

Left In Life's Best Bloom by [archiveofourown.org profile] BewareTheIdes15 (13,166 words)
Clark Kent/Lex Luthor
Age Regression/De-Aging, Adolescent Sexuality, Mildly Dubious Consent, Angst, First Time
Summary: Why is there a bald teenager wearing Lex Luthor’s clothes lying in the middle of the parking lot?
Rec Notes: This characterization is flawless and the sex is insanely hot. Also features one of my fave author's notes of all time: Me: *shows up to the fandom 15 years late holding a Starbucks* Heyyyyyyy

Ghostbusters (2016)

Celebrate the Me yet To Come by [archiveofourown.org profile] Vera (6,121 words)
Erin Gilbert/Jillian Holtzmann
Patty Tolan, Abby Yates, Origin Story
Summary: She is deeply strange and strangely deep. She looks in the void and the void blinks first. This is how Jillian Holtzman makes herself.
Rec Notes: She is Jillian. She is Holtzmann. She dances the goddamn body electric.

Hamilton: An American Musical

For the Light to Shine by [archiveofourown.org profile] notevenyou (14,613 words)
Aaron Burr/Alexander Hamilton, Alternate Universe - Modern Setting, Kid Fic, Past Character Death, Grief/Mourning, Homophobia, Past Violence, Angst with a Happy Ending, Christmas
Summary: After Theodosia dies, Aaron and Theo move out of the city.
Rec Notes: Aaron and Alexander were frenemies in college. They haven't seen each other in years until their own personal tragedies (Philip and Theo's deaths) prompt them both to move to the suburbs and work at the same small law firm. It's achingly lovely.

Hannibal (TV)

Separately to a Wood by [archiveofourown.org profile] emungere (13,892 words)
Will Graham/Hannibal Lecter, Will Graham's Dogs, Alana Bloom, Jack Crawford, Garrett Jacob Hobbs, Eldon Stammets, Marriage Proposal, Canon-Typical Violence, Season/Series 01, Love at First Sight, Hannibal is a Cannibal
Summary: This fic is based on granpappy-winchester's tags: #I want the AU where Hannibal just proposes to Will that morning in the motel room #and for some reason Will says 'yes'
Rec Notes: Honestly, this premise isn't any more ridiculous than Hannibal canon, and the fic is creepily sweet and very in character.

Harry Potter

House Proud by [archiveofourown.org profile] astolat (23,112 words)
Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy, Hermione Granger/Ron Weasley, Kreacher, Horace Slughorn, Post-War, EWE, Grimmauld Place, Malfoy Manor
Summary: His house liked Draco Malfoy more than him.
Rec Notes: Harry is rightly miffed that the Noble and Most Ancient House of Black is showing a strong preference for Malfoy, of all people.

Newts by [archiveofourown.org profile] astolat (13,296 words)
Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy, Hermione Granger/Ron Weasley, Millicent Bulstrode, Minerva McGonagall, Luna Lovegood, Post Hogwarts, except not, Epilogue What Epilogue, Professor Draco
Summary: “I’m twenty-eight!” Harry said. “I’ve been an Auror for ten years! You want me to go back to Hogwarts now?"
Rec Notes: That time Harry kept getting the D until he got Draco's D.

Reparatio by [archiveofourown.org profile] astolat (17,363 words)
Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy, Hermione Granger/Ron Weasley, Post Hogwarts
Summary:Draco snorted. “I’m not reduced to penury. I want something considerably beyond money, and I rather think you’re the only one can give it to me.”

“You want the Invisibility Cloak,” Harry said, flatly. He’d half expected as much; it was the only thing he had that Draco could want—

“Don’t be stupid, Potter,” Draco said. “I want my reputation back.”
Rec Notes: I am a known sucker for a good fake dating fic.

Slithering by [archiveofourown.org profile] astolat (27,355 words)
Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter, Narcissa Black Malfoy, Lucius Malfoy, Hermione Granger, Andromeda Black Tonks, Post-War, aftermath of war, Reconciliation, Courtship, Snakes
Summary: Draco found the nest down in the Manor’s cellars, while he was clearing them out.
Rec Notes: Featuring: Nagini's snarky kid, Draco dressed like a fairytale, Harry in deep denial, and wizarding courtship rituals.

Stately Homes of Wiltshire by [archiveofourown.org profile] waspabi (57,582 words)
Harry Potter/Draco Malfoy, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, Pansy Parkinson, Pining, Mystery, Humor
Summary: Malfoy Manor has mould, dry rot and an infestation of unusually historical poltergeists. Harry Potter is on the case.
Rec Notes: The manor's in disrepair and now dangerously infested with peculiar poltergeists. Auror Potter's on the case. (PS if you haven't read anything by [archiveofourown.org profile] waspabi before, they're one of my favorite fic writers. Absolutely gorgeous prose and flawless pacing.)

Stop and Stare by [archiveofourown.org profile] Saras_Girl (78,395 words)
Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter, Hermione Granger/Ron Weasley
Summary: Harry’s life is full of care, he has no time to stop or stare; he has no time for anyone’s shit, until his friends aren’t having it. A story about the unravelly things. 2015 advent fic.
Rec Notes: Harry and Draco lead a quite, content life running a shop and living above it they're not a couple. Seriously, they're not. Well. Not yet.

James Bond

How to Be a Superhero by [archiveofourown.org profile] turningterrific (53,726 words)
James Bond/Q, Gareth Mallory, Eve Moneypenny, Q's Family, Fake/Pretend Relationship, Slow Build, POV Alternating, World of Warcraft Playing, Kid Fic, Post-Skyfall, Sharing a Bed
Summary: “Am I sacked?”

M doesn’t bother answering James’ attempt at humor but instead continues in his point. “Since your return from the Skyfall operation, which was over a year ago I might add, you have not taken one day of leave, no holiday of which I'm aware. You haven’t rested the requisite 48 hour period between mission and report.”

James takes a deep breath and lets it out slowly.

“You are not a young man,” M says plainly. “Everyone, even James Bond, needs time to let wounds heal, both physical and mental. Pushing yourself is going to get you or someone else killed eventually.”

“So not another mission then?” James asks and moves to stand.
Rec Notes: Or, James Bond is forced to take a few days off, runs into Q at a kebab shop, starts playing World of Warcraft, and takes a trip to Witney to meet Q's family (for reasons of national security, of course).

Kings (TV)

Single Use Weapon by [archiveofourown.org profile] Fahye (67,407 words)
Jack Benjamin/David Shepherd, Michelle Benjamin/David Shepherd, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Loyalty, Politics
Summary: "The king is dead," says Samuels. "Long live the king."

A story about fealty and destiny, spies and secrets, and the things we do to hold onto power.
Rec Notes: Thinky and full of political machinations and pining and it's so. Damn. Good.

The Martian

Who Reaps a Human Harvest in Alien Fields by [archiveofourown.org profile] Annakovsky (16,703 words)
Chris Beck/Beth Johanssen/Mark Watney, Chris Beck/Mark Watney, Chris Beck/Beth Johanssen, Beth Johanssen/Mark Watney, Horror, Aliens, Psychological Horror, Threesome, Touch-Starved, Yuletide, Suicidal Thoughts
Summary: Mark is pretty sure there's something up here with him, hunting him.
Rec Notes: The sense of creeping dread and the brilliant depiction of Watney's deteriorating mental condition is chilling. Ends happily with the return home and some excellent sex.

Marvel (Comics & Cinematic Universe)

Cherry Ride by [archiveofourown.org profile] copperbadge (12,318 words)
Tony Stark/Steve Rogers, Pepper Potts, Agent Bossypants, Loki, Alternate Universe, Fast Cars, Sex in a Car, Identity Porn, Secret Identity, Iron Man 2
Summary: A SHIELD agent named Roger Stevens told Tony that his nickname was "Cap". Tony didn't connect the dots until it was much, much too late.
Rec Notes: So Steve may have neglected to tell Tony a few things when he took this SHIELD assignment. Or: speed demons in lust.

The Favor of the King by [archiveofourown.org profile] thingswithwings (18,329 words)
Sam Wilson/T'Challa, Steve Rogers, Shuri, Tony Stark, Dora Milaje, Wakanda, Oaths & Vows, Flying, Service, Intellectual Property Rights, Post-Captain America: Civil War (Movie)
Summary: T'Challa – King T'Challa of Wakanda, the Black Panther, Guy Who Dresses Up Like a Cat to Fight Crime or Possibly for Other Reasons, Who the Fuck Knows – T'Challa corners Sam during one of their visits to check in on Bucky and says, in a mild voice that should not sound as threatening as it does, "We need to talk."

"We do, huh," Sam says, looking him up and down. He's just a king and a superhero and a genius inventor and possibly the richest man alive, looking way too fine and wearing the hell out of a tailored three-piece suit; Sam can hold his own against this guy.
Rec Notes: Sam is perpetually baffled about how his life is turning out, but damn if he doesn't like it, anyway.

An International Affair by [archiveofourown.org profile] dvs (5,500 words)
Sam Wilson/T'Challa, James "Bucky" Barnes, Steve Rogers, Nick Fury, Clint Bartonm Natasha Romanov, Alternate Universe
Summary: A king. A president. Love at a long distance.
Rec Notes: That AU where Sam's the president and T'Challa's the king and they fall in love across years and miles.

long hair, slicked back (white t-shirt) by [Bad username or unknown identity: site=ao3] (1,698 words)
Sam Wilson/James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers, Fluff and Smut, Steve Rogers' tight shirts, Steve Rogers' Biceps, god bless u costumer obviously, Tumblr Prompt, this fic is smol and silly and i'm into it, Established Relationship
Summary: “Hey Sam,” Bucky says, “can I ask you a question? Why does Steve always wear such tight t-shirts nowadays? You think nobody's told him he's got muscles?”

Sam chokes on his coffee. “That is not where I was expecting this to go, okay, I, uh. Honestly, I've got no fucking idea. He didn't dress like that in the war?”

“Not except for the costume,” Bucky says dreamily. “He kept it, you know. I told him to keep it.”
Rec Notes: I laughed for the entire length of this fic.

Out of the Thousand Invitations by [archiveofourown.org profile] traincat (7,533 words)
Peter Parker/Johnny Storm, Harry Osborn, Mary Jane Watson, Reed Richards, Holidays, Misunderstandings, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence
Summary: "Hey, it's you. The mall Santa."

Peter turned, and the rude reply died on his lips. Johnny Storm was standing on the street behind him, hanging half out of a coffee shop doorway. The tops of his cheeks were pink from the wind, his eyes were too bright. He was wearing a leather jacket and a scarf that even Harry would have called a waste of money was wound tight around his throat.

Peter's lungs felt a little like they had that one time after he'd swung into a billboard.
Rec Notes: This is so fluffy I wanna die.

see a thing a thousand times by [archiveofourown.org profile] Mizzy (26,896 words)
Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Sam Wilson, Reed Richards, Identity Porn, First Kiss, Secret Identity, Alternate Universe - High School, Oblivious Steve Rogers, Oblivious Tony
Summary: Whoever came up with the rule that SHIELD agents in modern times had to be a certain age should be shot. Obviously the solution is for Steve to travel back in time. (If only things were ever that easy.)
Rec Notes: I don't even like high school AUs and I love this fic.

Star Trek

and I will rise up from the ashes now by [archiveofourown.org profile] ariadne_odair (8,484 words)
James T. Kirk/Spock
Summary: Jim Kirk has a complex relationship with food. He also has a complex relationship with a certain first officer of the US Enterprise. For a genius, Jim is kind of an idiot for not realising this was going to come back to bite him in at some point.

In which Spock is protective, the crew is protective, Jim is oblivious (and definitely not pining), and they all get there in the end.
Rec Notes: Really lovely Jim character piece. Our boy's been traumatized. His crew looks out for him.

Bluebird by [archiveofourown.org profile] waldorph (7,087 words)
James T. Kirk/Spock, Post-Beyond
Summary: “Jim Kirk.”
Jim whipped around so fast most of his drink ended up on Spock, who was reaching for the phaser that wasn’t there. The Enterprise crew was parting like the biblical seas before Moses, and Jim could feel the temperature dropping.
“Mom,” Jim croaked.
Rec Notes: Oh, this hurts so good. Wonderful Winona and a painfully perfect get-together.

Dimelo by [archiveofourown.org profile] ladyflowdi (3,788 words)
James T. Kirk/Leonard "Bones" McCoy, Porn with Feelings, Anal Sex, Anal Fingering, Begging, Humor, Light Voyeurism, Dirty Talk, The Bones version of dirty talk anyway, Intercrural Sex, Size Kink
Summary: Jim wouldn’t have ever believed it in a million years if he hadn’t seen it for himself, hadn’t made the unfortunate life choice to go buy donuts and then decide to use the lock code Bones had given him for emergencies only Jim, and if you abuse that right I have no problem using your skinny ass as a pin cushion. Really, it’s his own fault he’d just walked right into the hottest thing he’d ever seen in his life.
Rec Notes: ::fans self:: It's really just smut with feels, y'all.

Star Wars

A Big Deal in the Resistance by [archiveofourown.org profile] igrockspock (14,697 words)
Poe Dameron/Finn, Leia Organa, Jessika Pava, Temmin "Snap" Wexley, Culture Shock, Prank Wars, Rescue Missions, Humor, Angst, Slow Build, Getting Together, Post-Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Summary: Within a month of officially joining the Resistance, Finn accidentally initiates an epic prank war with his roommates, receives a medal he doesn’t want, and starts falling in love with his best friend.
Rec Notes: There's a prank involving blue milk, what more could a gal want?

a city built on water by [archiveofourown.org profile] Deputychairman (13,668 words)
Poe Dameron/Finn, Leia Organa, First Time, diplomacy and bureaucracy will save the galaxy, Finn is good at more than fighting, but he is also very good at fighting, salt n pepper undercut Poe, a space!motorbike, Swimming, and sex on the beach
Summary: things that happen after the war: diplomacy, bureaucracy, sex
Rec Notes: A surprisingly plotty character piece with diplomat!Finn and phenomenal post-canon worldbuilding.

Dark and Bright Meet In Her Aspect by [archiveofourown.org profile] imaginary_golux (11,031 words)
Rey/Phasma, Kylo Ren, Hux, Leia Organa, Finn, Dubcon Cuddling, Dark Side Rey, Grey Jedi Rey
Summary: Rey decides that the best way to keep Finn safe is to get rid of *everyone* who might possibly hurt him...and the best way to do that is to infiltrate the First Order as a Dark Side apprentice.

...Kylo Ren isn't going to know what hit him. And Phasma is more than a little surprised at the way her life has just changed.
Rec Notes: In which Rey cares about very few people in the galaxy, but she'll take over the whole damn place to protect them.

The Future Prince by [archiveofourown.org profile] StarMaple (22,091 words)
Poe Dameron/Finn, Leia Organa, Original Characters, BB-8, Slow Burn, Royalty, Trash!Poe, Secret Identity, Meeting the Parents, Romance, Humor, Fluff, Prince!Finn, Stormpilot, Sharing a Bed, Holding Hands, Fanart, Friends to Lovers
Summary: During a diplomatic mission, Poe and Finn find Finn's homeworld... and discover he is a long-lost kidnapped prince.
Rec Notes: That one where they find out Finn's a kidnapped space prince and everything turns out great.

Generational mistakes by [archiveofourown.org profile] owlet (17,075 words)
Leia Organa & Ben Solo | Kylo Ren, Rey & Ben Solo | Kylo Ren, Poe Dameron/Finn/Rey (background), Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca, Motherhood, Regret, Redemption, Past Torture, Grief/Mourning, Probably off-canon, Always listen to Chewbacca, Team Unrelated Rey, Mild Cursing, Force Bond
Summary: With all the loss Leia Organa had known, she did not expect to feel to completely gutted by the sight of her son in chains.
Rec Notes: Ben is redeemed, but this is not an apologist story. Ben accidentally force bonds to Rey and there's a whole lot of fallout. Largely a Leia character piece and it is so. damn. good.

Here Comes the Sun by [archiveofourown.org profile] coffeeinallcaps (1,360 words)
Poe Dameron/Finn, Rey, Post-Canon, Mutual Pining, Humor
Summary: Poe is in his flight suit, which is plenty unfair in and of itself, but the worst part comes when he takes off his helmet and drags a hand through his hair. It’s tousled, damp with sweat; Finn can tell from the way loose strands cling to Poe’s fingers.

Poe turns, and their eyes meet. Poe smiles, yells something in greeting. Finn waves in return, wondering how many members of the Resistance have already been struck by this same maddening, overwhelming feeling of want, courtesy of Poe Dameron.

Dozens, he bets.
Rec Notes: Perfect little slice of stormpilot delight.

Just a Little Bit of History Repeating by [archiveofourown.org profile] victoria_p (3,740)
Leia Organa & Darth Vader, Father-Daughter Relationship, Epiphanies, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, the skywalker family tragedy, the skywalkers have no chill
Summary: "I'm in charge of security, Your Highness," Vader said, haughty and automatic, and had to shove away a sudden onslaught of memories. It was this building, he thought, and the presence of a small brunette senator with a smart mouth. That was all.
Rec Notes: I've always thought that Leia and Vader have a lot in common, which would of course immediately piss Leia off.

Like stars burning holes through the dark by [archiveofourown.org profile] victoria_p (8,874 words)
Luke Skywalker & Darth Vader, Leia Organa & Darth Vader, Ahsoka Tano, Family Drama, Angst and Humor, Family Reunions, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Melodrama, the skywalker family tragedy, the skywalkers have no chill
Summary: Luke considers this family reunion far more successful than the one in Cloud City. At least this time, no one loses a hand.
Rec Notes: This shouldn't be as funny and lovely as it is.

no one can stop me, not even gravity or nasa by [archiveofourown.org profile] magneticwave (8,560 words)
Leia Organa/Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi
Summary: “Fuck you,” Leia says. “Who said anything about getting married? Did Luke say anything about getting married?”

“Luke is not involved,” Luke says, not looking up.

“Hey, Luke is not involved,” Han says, pointing at her. She’s going to bite his finger off, then they’ll see how much pointing he can do with it. “This is about you and me, princess.”

“There’s not going to be a you and me,” Leia says. “I’m going to have this baby with C-3PO.”

C-3PO says, “Madam,” tremulous.
Rec Notes: I laughed through all 8k+ words of this. (PS if you read in any of their fandoms, [archiveofourown.org profile] magneticwave is A+, great all-around writer.)

On the Other Side by [archiveofourown.org profile] StarMaple (27,243 words)
Poe Dameron/Finn, Leia Organa, Jessika Pava, Temmin "Snap" Wexley, BB-8, Original Characters, Humor, Hurt/Comfort, Friendship, Romance, Friends to Lovers, Stormpilot, Slow Burn, Finn POV, Fanart
Summary: Finn discovers the differences first hand between the First Order and the Resistance and establishes a space for himself on D'Qar.
Rec Notes: Finn recovers post-TFA and learns about life and love outside the First Order. It's weird, but he likes it.

Remaining Human by [archiveofourown.org profile] awomannotagirl (10,484 words)
Rey/Phasma, porn with an unnecessary amount of plot, Femslash February
Summary: Rey wants to put her arms around her and tell her everything will be all right, but she senses that Phasma won’t take that well, and besides, it might be a lie.
Rec Notes: Phasma backstory and excellent 'what-if' post TFA.

road trip playlist by [archiveofourown.org profile] magneticwave (5,489 words)
Rey, Chewbacca, Leia Organa, Poe Dameron, Finn
Summary: Rey is XO of a piece of junk, her captain is a foul-mouthed Wookiee who doesn’t respect people who respect authority, and there are pictures of naked people glued to the ceiling of the Falcon. She honestly couldn't be more thrilled.
Rec Notes: Wonderful little gen post-TFA Rey character piece.

A Room with a View by [archiveofourown.org profile] pyes (13,193 words)
Poe Dameron/Finn, Future Fic, Canon Compliant, Reunion Sex, and a lot of it
Summary: Poe awaits Finn's arrival at a busy spaceport after a long, lonely year spent on opposite ends of the galaxy.
Rec Notes: Pretty much just worldbuilding, smut, and feels, done flawlessly.

The Sun in Your Eyes and Starlight in Your Hair by [archiveofourown.org profile] victoriousscarf (10,765 words)
Luke SkywalkerHan SoloChewbacca, Luke acquires cats, Post rotj, ignoring most of the eu, And tfa
Summary: Han agreed to help Luke find what he could of the Jedi because the war was over and running away with Luke sounded better than running away by himself.

Still the cats were something he hadn't expected.
Rec Notes: Honestly I don't know when smol, tired cat collector Luke Skywalker became my aesthetic, but apparently here we are, friends. Or: Han falls in love with Luke Skywalker: Jedi Master and Intergalactic Cat Lady.

Supernova Tonight by [archiveofourown.org profile] halotolerant (9,628 words)
Poe Dameron/Finn, Leia Organa, Rey, Post-Canon, First Time, First Kiss, Getting to Know Each Other, Sharing a Room, Relationship Negotiation, Additional Warnings In Author's Note, References to non-specific past abuse in the context of being a stormtrooper
Summary: There’s probably a lot that Finn needs, now he’s conscious again, and probably half of it Poe is never going to be able to figure out, but at least he can tell him the stories.
Rec Notes: Poe and Finn muddle through this whole personhood thing together.

Take Our Hands Out of Control by [archiveofourown.org profile] stereobone (43,734 words)
Armitage Hux/Ben Solo | Kylo Ren, Pre-Star Wars: The Force Awakens
Summary: When Hux meets Kylo Ren, he knows exactly what kind of man he is.

Until, as it turns out, he doesn't. And then Hux starts to wonder if he even knows himself.
Rec Notes: "You're a very strange man," Hux tells him.

"You say that like you're surprised."

"More indignant," Hux says.

Walking Each Other Home by [archiveofourown.org profile] Xela (11,721 words)
Poe Dameron/Finn, Leia Organa, Rey, Luke Skywalker, Wedge Antilles, Temmin "Snap" Wexley, Jessika Pava, BB-8, Kes Dameron, Stormpilot, Angst, Hurt/Comfort, Boys In Love, Healing, Injury Recovery, Depression, Mental Health Issues, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD, leia is a troll, Drunkenness, Humor, Human Experimentation, Drunken Shenanigans, Falling In Love, Frottage, Blow Jobs, Touching, Family Feels, implied future Poe Dameron/Finn/Rey ,Enthusiastic Consent, Trolling Poe Dameron
Summary: The First Order, cut off from the Empire’s endless supply of clones and given the relative expense of actually raising their cannon fodder from childhood, has been experimenting.

“His name is Finn,” Poe says, voice quiet. “He is a person, not a medical mystery for you to solve. So get your shit together, figure out how to help him, and then wake him up.”
Rec Notes: This is some amazing worldbuilding and the best slow burn.

Teen Wolf

Adult Wolf by [archiveofourown.org profile] KouriArashi (38,621 words)
Sheriff Stilinski & Stiles Stilinski, Derek Hale & Stiles Stilinski, Derek Hale & Sheriff Stilinski, Peter Hale, Chris Argent, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Alternate Canon, Family, Pack Feels, Pack Dynamics, BAMF Sheriff Stilinski, Stilinski Family Feels, Hale Family Feels
Summary: As if Sheriff Stilinski doesn't have enough to deal with, now he's been attacked by some enormous dog in the forest, and that's normal compared to what happens next...

Season one re-telling with Sheriff Stilinski being bitten instead of Scott.
Rec Notes: The best alternate first season I've ever read.

Days Like This by [archiveofourown.org profile] rlnerdgirl (18,784 words)
Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski, Sheriff Stilinski, Scott McCall, Slice of Life, Slow Burn, Derek Comes Back, Post-College AU, S3/S4 Divergent
Summary: Returning to Beacon Hills is a big step for Derek. He's starting his own business, rebuilding his old family home, and enjoying the feeling of being home. When he runs into the Sheriff and finds himself invited to a Stilinski family dinner, it's not nearly as strange as he would have expected, and when Stiles starts becoming a regular part of his new life, it only feels natural.

The first thing Derek notices is that Stiles is taller. The second is that he’s more filled out. This shouldn’t be a surprise. Not living in Beacon Hills doesn’t stop the machine of social media, and it’s not like he hasn’t seen pictures, but it’s different in person. Stiles, now Derek’s height, maybe an inch taller, still has the same wide smile and loose-limbness about him that he did when he was in high school. Between the height and the muscles though, this Stiles wouldn’t make anyone second guess that he played lacrosse. The only thing people would second guess about this Stiles is the fact that he was always on the bench.

Rec Notes: My favorite flavor of teen wolf au: canon divergent where the original crew comes back and there's pining and/or bonding.

Deep Down, Where Your Fight Is Waiting by [archiveofourown.org profile] yodasyoyo (14,387 words)
Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski, Allison Argent/Lydia Martin, Allison Argent & Stiles Stilinski, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Allison's POV, POV Outsider on Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski, Monster of the Week, BAMF Stiles, BAMF Allison, Pining Stiles, Oblivious Stiles, Happy Endings For Everyone, Tattooed Stiles Stilinski, Magical Stiles Stilinski
Summary: “Stiles?”

“I’m eating Cheetos,” he mumbles thickly. “It’s a stress thing. A heartache thing. You want one?”

“Oh my God, you just brushed your teeth.”


Allison never planned to return to Beacon Hills once they resurrected her, but when has her life ever gone to plan?
Rec Notes: Amazing canon divergent fic where Allison was raised from the dead and got the hell out of Beacon Hills. Now she and Stiles are road tripping back for a ritual to protect the town.

i wait for you like a lonely house by [archiveofourown.org profile] bleep0bleep (4,588 words)
Derek Hale/Stiles Stilinski, Sheriff Stilinski, Scott McCall, Kira Yukimura, Lydia Martin, Malia Tate, Liam Dunbar, Mason Hewitt, Hayden Romero, Tracy Stewart, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence, Alternate Universe - Future, Rebuilding, Mutual Pining, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Christmas Fluff, Christmas Decorations, Domestic, Holidays, Getting Together, Deputy Derek Hale
Summary: Derek isn’t sure why he buys the house.
He doesn’t need the space, that much is certain. While it’s not as big as the one Derek grew up in, something about the cheerful yellow paint and the wide staircase (with banisters wide enough for children to slide down) draws him in.
Rec Notes: A Deputy Derek holiday Teen Wolf fic to soothe my weary soul.
