    Summary

    Steve is the head chef of an exclusive, very classy Brooklyn restaurant. It's an awesome job, despite the fact that he has to climb on a box to yell at his staff, but there's one big problem. He can't stand the head waiter and the guy just won't stop flirting with him.

    Bucky Barnes is a fucking menace, and Steve hates his guts.

    [in which there's restaurant drama, recipes with every chapter, and Bucky and Steve figure their shit out over a lot of food]

    Summary

    Their story was not worth telling for but for Jungkook and Taehyung, it was the best story the stars have ever written. Stories about how the world broke them down, leaving them with nothing not even a shred of dignity.

    Summary

    She was stubborn as well as kind, and loved him beyond reason. Read as a stand-alone from the start, from Chapter 43 to skip the re-telling of canon story (Lavellan PoV), or in parallel with other points of view given in Mind Heart and Under the Fresco. Wild dreams, lore and slow-burning veilfire. Smut occasionally then more towards the end, Chapter 53 onwards; romance and angst throughout. Likelihood of happy ending: 91%.

    Chapters 27-42: Jaws of Hakkon, Descent & Trespasser /

    Summary

    In the night, flickers of red hair were run flitting through a forest. You can find me, she said. Distance is what separates them. Distance an a rift in between his fingers. Upon waking up at the Conclave, Mahanon Lavellan assumed that all he cared about was dead. Red hair, turn of the cheek, wide eyes. His dearest friend, his guardian, roams somewhere in the Free Marches. She lives. For now.

    Depending on how fast he can fix this world, it might not be for long.

    Summary

    Continuing my trend of liking things where a great many characters die and then making AUs where no one dies:

    Sixteen-year-old Brendol Hux II isn't a general yet. He's cold, pragmatic, and on the fast track to being a First Order officer, yes, but he's still in training and in his father's shadow. One rather poor decision and the extended ramifications thereof later, he's on the fast track to ruining not just his own career, but the entire First Order along with it.

    (Meanwhile, 12-year-old Ben Solo is a human disaster, but he's a human disaster with a destiny. He's just not entirely sure what it is yet.)
