    I have no words left, but if I had to try to find one, it would be: Magnificent.

    Gabranth lives, and there is nothing simple about it— not for him, nor Basch, and most especially not Vaan.

    This has so very good in-depth views and appreciation of the characters who are all written with such care. The developments are at times very subtle but there and the whole story is a very beautiful read. Don't be afraid of the rare pairing, the focus of the story is in character study and self-finding and the love part is more of a mutual acknowledgement.

    FFXII needs more fics like this. (All the fandoms need more fics like this.)

    I went totally asdfghjkl!!!!11111 squared to infinity when I realized "so you were never a saint." 'verse had another part. And it was just as deliciously and magnificently quietly badass, nerdy and sassy as the first part and full of those little quips and quirks you just have to fall in love with. I honestly can't not read these two enough times - I always have to come back. Also, I like how these fics kinda take and turn the very sexually charged nature of Bond upside down with a dash of sweet irony.

    Q imagines that kissing Bond must be like being punched repeatedly in the face, only considerably less enjoyable.

    [set post-movie; SPOILERS]
    “I think Bond’s trying to be your friend,” Eve tells him.

    “…well,” Q says slowly, “this is a new and disturbing development.”

    This has. The. Best. Q. EVER written in the history of Bond movie fics (despite I've only read Daniel Craig ones.) It's all said best by paperclipbitch in their A/N:

    Ugh, Skyfall was so great though, and I want to write all the stuff about EVERYBODY, but yes, I love Q. And my brain decided that he was panromantic asexual. It would’ve probably been easier to just bang out some porn, but that is not what happened. So the alternative summary is: in which Eve is secretly Q’s BFF, Bond and Q clumsily end up being sort-of-bros, and Q is such a fucking hipster, you guys don’t even know.

    And, the world needs more badass asexual people.

    Summary

    Carlos is absolutely objective. It’s just that it’s quite hard to stay objective when you’ve got Hooded Figures living in your kitchen, radio news reporters stalking you with somewhat dubious baked goods, and everything is so soaked with chemicals, radiation and dark magic that half the time your food disparages your cookery skills while you’re trying to make dinner.

    The Night Vale voice (pun intended ;) ) in this one is seriously good - there are all those little unsettling quirks we are so fond of in Night Vale and the headcanon paperclipbitch has fits in so smoothly that you'd wish it existed in the podfic itself.

    Also, this was the first Night Vale fic I read, ever so extra-love for that :D
