  1. Summary

    "It's vital to remember who you really are. It's very important. It isn't a good idea to rely on other people or things to do it for you, you see. They always get it wrong."
    - Terry Pratchett, Sourcery

    It's not actually easy to be a living legend. The story usually tries to go on without you.

    So, this entire series is great, and this fic alone is just a taste (an exemplary taste) of this AU. This fic explores a post-canon demisexual Ed trying to understand himself, and it does such an incredible job of introspection, especially of introspection of a person who's at once confident in themselves and yet worried about if some part of them is broken (especially before they have the words and information to know that they're not). It really nails the inward awkwardness and anxiety in "not getting it (whatever IT is exactly)" and "not fitting in". This scene / sequence of conversations in Ed's life feels very relatable and real, and I want to reach in through the screen to Ed like he's my younger self, and reassure him that it's okay. Very satisfying angst and fluff.

    Summary

    That was his lot in life as a fire drake, though, he supposed. To be filled with fire and still freezing. The irony was not lost on him.

     

    (Very much a nonsensical fairy tale that is vaguely rooted in canon. When in beta I was told this fic was " sort of like The Little Mermaid but with more dragons and less singing." Well. Marginally less singing.)

    One of the best "someone is a dragon" and "someone is secretly a magical creature" fics that I've ever read. (I would absolutely read a novel with this premise in this style.) I'm a sucker for dragons and Dorian Pavus and the Iron Bull, and every of those aspects and more is done with wonderful characterization, wit, and plotting. The character interactions are so much fun, the narration is just as much fun, and the ups and downs of the reveal are fantastic (as is the romance). This is such a well-done AU, and such a fun, feel-good, satisfying story.

    Somebody (walkingoutintherain) asked if anyone had written Mad Max: Fury Road as an epic poem of some kind. bigscaryd answered that call and I'm kind of in love. I'd love to read the full thing if it was ever written, but I'm happy to sigh over what there already is because it's gorgeous.

    A short but sadly poignant fic on soulmark-based soulmates (where soulmates are people who have heavily influenced you), in which post-canon (DH compliant) Harry considers his own marks, people who have marks from him, and marks in general. Non-romantic, focusing interestingly on various adults of HP. Give it a read!
