    Remarkable portrait of asexual!Master from the Classic Who period, elliptical prose, fascinating POV, almost poetic in its restraint.

    Amazing Mordecai voice, wonderful IC bond between Mordecai and Viktor, perfect blend of sympathy with the constant awareness that these are professional cold-blooded killers. Also funny. I could visualize Mordecai perfectly throughout, and I wanted more, but the fic ends on the perfect note.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The Boosh meets real life. Garrideb gives this fic that delightful touch of madcap absurdity crucial to Booshiness, but it's the streak of heartbreak, and Vince being the king of flights of fancy, and Howard being Howard in the loveliest god-of-bookmarks way, that makes this shine. There's a tenderness here that goes all the way down and through until it touches magic, and yes, it made me cry.

    Summary

    Two sentient stellar beings, in close orbit around each other, exchanging plasma, in an epic romance that had taken millennia to consummate. One would envelope the other in a few million years, and then they would burst outward in a supernova, bringing their love to a spectacular end. Their light and their love would be ash, but not now, and not any time soon. Today, now, in the glory days of their love -- or so the Doctor described it -- their names swirled across their surfaces as sunspots, dots and whorls in the plasma. The written language of stars.

    Set post-series for TTOI, probably best described as emotional-PWP, in which Twelve refers to Jamie MacDonald as "wrong Jamie" and Jamie thinks of Twelve as "Not-Malcolm." Originally posted to Tumblr but cleaned up slightly since then.

    Summary

    The engraving is a thin cursive font; elegant, but not pompous or flowery. Even in the light it's small, and John has to squint to see. It reads: Belonging to Harold R. Wren.

     

    John feels his mouth quirk up. 'Belonging to'. Not 'Property of'. It was the kind of distinction that Harold was always concerned with. Of course he'd have something engraved custom rather than put his name, even a false one, to a statement he didn't believe. Bear wasn't anyone's property. But he belonged somewhere. He belonged to someone.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Thoughtful, precise writing, excellent characterization, often lovely and insightful, with a touch of humor. Great voices, including Shaw's humorous cameos. Yearning, belonging, and Harold's willingness to give John anything within his power. The sort of writer who makes me look forward to the next thing they post.

    Hestia Jones discovers that, when one is cowering in a teeny cottage with the two people one hates most in the world, there is little or nothing to do but fall in love, wreck a marriage, and find happily-ever-after.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Charming, sly, whimsical, humorous, intelligent, with room for a little poignancy. Hestia's POV is fantastic, and Petunia is re-conceived here. There's a unique quality to the voice that almost tips over into the surreal at times. (There are formatting errors in its transfer to AO3, so I'd recommend its original posting on HP Beholder here.)

    Summary

    Numbers never lied.

    Vincent learned that at an early age, learned that numbers were the only things that didn't lie. Mothers lied, and fathers home from Azkaban, they lied a lot, and friends certainly lied. Numbers, though. Numbers never called him names, or sold him out to tall, cold men. Numbers were exactly what they claimed to be, and rather than manipulate him, Vincent could manipulate them. Numbers were cold, hard fact.

    Numbers were telling him to marry Harry Potter.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This fic broke me when I first read it. The writing is gorgeous, bruising, romantic to its bones, near-tragic but utterly on the side of life. It has time-travel, compassion, humor, the best young Severus ever, and a Harry to match. Mia's portrayal of the act of falling in love rips my heart to shreds. I don't often cry over fics, but I did over this one. It mends a lot of what the books left unhealed. Snarry fandom has produced some amazing fics over the years, but Rapture is in a class of its own.

    A painful, disturbing, gorgeous story about Snape almost succumbing to addiction in order to dream that Lily is with him, and the agony of withdrawal that means he loses her again, this time irreparably.
