  2. Summary

    Wizards doesn't want the "Uncharted Realms" name anymore, so I suppose I'll borrow it, with a twist. All of these stories are written in the same canon but some have since been invalidated by newer blocks, so bear that in mind.

    Don't get scared off by the pairing in the tags - it's not what you think. Takes place in the Transcendence AU, in which Bill Cipher was defeated but consequences linger in our transformed world: magic, cryptids, and most dramatically, demons. Though Cipher was destroyed in the final confrontation, Dipper Pines was caught in the crossfire and ended up infused with Cipher's power, becoming the demon Alcor, the Dreambender. He follows his sister Mabel's soul, Mizar, through the cycle of reincarnation, using her as his confidant and anchor to humanity.

    Fast-forward about a thousand years. Mira, the current Mizar, is dating an artist named Ian Thomas Beale, and decides it's time to introduce him to her demon sort-of-brother. Trouble is, Alcor's already met him - Ian is Cipher's reincarnated soul, having finally pieced itself back together enough to enter the cycle of life and death. Awkward.

    I love the Transcendence AU, and this is probably my favorite story in that universe. Ian is an excellent iteration of Bill, recognizable as springing from his personality - complete with mania, puzzlehunt obsession, nihilistic streak, and morbid sense of humor - but still his own person. Not a redemption story, nor does it need to be. Excellent character interaction between Alcor, Mizar, and Ian, plus a really, really amusing Gideon incarnation. Highly recommend.

    Summary

    Washington and Tucker sleep together. It sounds like a lot of drama and Carolina is positive that something will eventually go wrong because they are both themselves, but she’s not concerning herself with any of that. She says her peace and that’s all. Washington is a grown man and can handle his own affairs.

    It’s not until he comes to her suggesting she train Caboose that her routine begins to change.

    The best handling of one of the trickiest characters in the entire series to write for.

    Take one Miles, a hapless cousin, Cetagandan social politics, a galactic conspiracy, a scientific discovery, a lot of firepower, and an unexpected declaration. Mix well and step back quickly.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Do you like the Vorkosigan Saga? Did you read The Vor Game and, like me, have this brief weird interval where you got some odd vibes from the story and went "holy crap, is LMB setting up Gregor and Miles??" Well, you're not alone! Gregor and Miles fall in love and try to sort their shit out, not necessarily in that order. Solid plot, twists and turns, Gregor and Miles being adorable, and a cat. What more could you want?

    In a fit of boredom Sherlock plants some seeds, may or may not eat one cracker, and definitely waxes dramatic on the sofa for a while.

    Probably the only BBC Sherlock story I'll ever finish reading, because it has a proper Sherlock: vain, bored, childish, obsessive, and secretly proud of his little tiny growing plants. Short, amusing, emotional but not heavy.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Man, I don't even watch Hannibal and I loved this fic. Continues the world imagined in Neil Gaiman's short story "A Study in Emerald," wherein the Great Old Ones (or possibly just the Old Ones? not clear) returned to Earth centuries ago and now sit as the ruling race. This story fast-forwards that universe to the present day and does a wonderful job imagining what the world would be like under the reign of our abyssal overlords. Godlings - mixed blood offspring - are the new ruling class, and humanity is quite firmly at the bottom of the pecking order. It's a really great, really bleak world in which people are prey and nothing will ever be okay again. Add into this the characters from Hannibal, a show in which (as I understand it) people are prey and nothing will ever be okay again, and you've got yourselves a perfect match. Recommend if you're into cosmic horror and/or you're just feeling too happy today.
