    Well paced story and a good romance. You could easily read this as an ofic gay romance without knowing the canon.

    Summary

    AU. Azazel offered Mary a choice, and she did what she had to do. She looked him in the eyes when he offered to bring her dead boyfriend back to life, and she told him no.

    Fifteen years later, she's divorced, a single mom, and living in the sort of quaint small town she used to dream about raising her family in. Enter a strange woman with a mute little girl, a woman who cracks through Mary's barely stable facade of a normal life. Featuring five tequila shots, four threatening angels, three fatherless children (maybe), two kickass women, and a platter of peanut butter brownies.

    Really good case fic AU. I love Mary and Ellen and the story is deeply engaging and cleverly works in the early and later canon of the show.

    Awesome story.

    (If you think the second person is going to put you off, please give it a try. It's used for some very good story structure and thematic reasons and it really works.)

    Sam's abilities are screwing with his memory, bombarding him with too much information at once. The solution he finds ultimately leads to losing more than he was willing to give up.

    Wonderful Gaila and Uhura character study. Highly recced.

    There are two follow up pieces, not quite making a story, but connected vignettes.

    Wonderful look into the future. Helen Natalia is her parents' daughter, and also herself. Don't miss the two sequels.

    Summary

    "You, upstairs," El said to Neal. He beamed, twirled on one foot, and trotted out. "And you need to stop making it so fun to mess with you," she added to Peter.

    She surprised a look of such melting fondness on his face as he looked after Neal that her breath caught. "No," he said quietly. "I really don't."

    Excellent voices, a perfect Neal characterization. All the banter and gloss of the show in a very realistic and enjoyable story.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Several layers of story, and from a layer of fandom that I can't see from the one I live on. Familiar and obscure, crystal clear and unfathomable.

    I love it.

    Hot, fun, in character and interesting dynamics.

    Absolutely adore the adult way they fit their relationship with Peter and Elizabeth's.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Set post 2 Fast 2 Furious (2003). Extremely violent, contains graphic scenes of torture, and sexual assault. Not for the squeamish.

    Roman and Brian light out of Florida and land in the Toretto garage. Their past catches up to them, and Brian ends up in trouble. Dom lit out of Mexico the second he heard who bought his old place, and he's going to be the man to save Brian.

    Classic Hurt/Comfort with a more plausible plot than the trope usually allows for. Enjoyable getting together. Well plotted jeopardy. Reasonably realistic aftermath.
