    Summary

    The knife goes in. The tower falls. When Jon opens his eyes, he is sitting in the uncomfortable chair in front of Elias Bouchard's desk, signing his employment contract as the Magnus Institute's newest researcher.

    He is alone in his memories of the future; his old friends might as well be worlds away. He demonstrably does not do well alone.

    Luckily, in the year 2011, he has options.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Ashes by PitViperOfDoom, The Magnus Archives fandom, time travel fix-it, very short but altogether excellent. Focuses on Jon and somewhat on Gerry.

    Summary

    It’s the right day, but the year is all wrong, and Dream suspects that there’s something else not quite right even before he finds himself standing in front of the shuttered remains of the White Horse Tavern. Still, he’s chilled in a way he’s not accustomed to feeling, reminiscent of the hopeless, free-falling frost that climbed up his spine and inside his gut the day he was meant to meet Hob when he was imprisoned. And that’s what it is, he realizes, this cold feeling. Hopelessness.

    Should Dream seek him out, would Hob welcome him as a friend, or turn his shoulder as he would on an intruder? It’s what he would deserve, Dream muses as he’s preparing to turn heel from the tavern’s closed gates, even though as he’s resigning himself to shame he’s also gearing up to make this his next mission, his next purpose: to find Hob Gadling.

    Alternatively: Dream and Hob find each other in 2021, and see no reason why they have to wait centuries to see each other again. And again.

    Inspire in Me, the Desire in Me, by ElloPoppet. Dream/Hob Gadling, Sandman (show) fandom. Absolutely splendid and lovely, and Hob befriends Death as well.

    Summary

    Morpheus’s expression melts into unreadability. “Would you have come to my rescue again, Hob Gadling?”

    “Yes. God, yes, I would have. Of course, I would have."

    Hob learns where his friend has been, and even Dream of the Endless might, on rare occasion, need a hand.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    slow burn by arahir, Dream of the Endless / Hob Gadling, Sandman fandom. So spectacularly graceful in every regard, and it made me cry twice over - first for the beauty of it, second for ending so quickly.

    Summary

    At the beginning of everything, Mal is just a second too slow to pull Alina out of the way of the incoming carriage. But the Alina who wakes up is not the young girl who had been walking down the road a moment ago.

    Time Travel AU.

    I Didn’t Want To (Have to Haunt You) by Lalaith_Yamainu, Grishaverse fandom, Alina/Darkling centric. Alina comes back in time after living an immortal's lifetime, and unscrews the timeline significantly. Very fun and lovely. The first time I've really *believed* Darkalina as a ship.

    Summary

    Lan Wangji had never had call to perform the spell of silent communication before he and Wei Wuxian joined together to fight Xuanwu. He figured it was temporary. Spoiler alert: it wasn't.

    Or: the AU in which Lan Wangji and Wei Wuxian psychically bond in the cave, Wei Wuxian overhears Lan Wangji thinking about the fact that he actually likes him, and after several minutes of confusion, is fully on board with this.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    hope dangling by a string by KouriArashi, Untamed fandom, LWJ and WWX develop telepathy; shenanigans ensue. Delightful humour and an abundance of hurt with the comfort.
