    Summary

    “And,” said one of the pompous ministers, “there’s the matter of a marriage to consider as well!” 

    Jin Ling, who at the beginning of that sentence had expected to slam into the very last wall of his patience and lose his temper entirely, paused. “A what?”

    Thing was… it wasn’t such a bad idea.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This fic took me out at the goddamned knees.

    Both because hilarious:
    “Because he is a good sweet boy. Don’t know where he got it from, to be honest. I’m definitely not sweet, and Lan Zhan,” he paused and sighed with a disgustingly soppy look on his face, “is a *huge bitch*. Must have skipped a generation or something.”

    And then because it just fucking wrecked my heart:
    “Ah, none of that,” he crooned. “No, no, we didn’t fight wars so little boys would have to cry for love.”

    I adore outsider PoV. This is a wonderful little narrative, and I love how the monologue has an excellent flow to it. I have not, at this point, listened to the Magnus Archive, but it's on my list. The voices are tuned just right. Excellent work.

    Summary

    Steve feels like he’s in some wild fever dream as he walks closer and says, “Hey, you all right?”

    107 looks up. He looks even prettier up close, even (or especially, Steve’s mind supplies unhelpfully) with his cheeks flushed with the exercise and sweat beading on his forehead. He does look a little crazy, though.

    “Huh,” 107 says, looks down Steve’s body, then up again. “I know we just met, but your dick looks like it’s getting strangled.”

    Summary

    So maybe everything didn't work out perfectly for Harry. Still, most of his friends survived, he'd gotten married, and was about to become a father. If only he'd have stayed away from the Veil, he wouldn't have had to go back and do everything AGAIN.
