    Summary

    Suddenly there came a violent pounding on the door, he felt no metal on the person on the other side of the door, not even a phone. It was odd to say the least.

    The pounding came again this time accompanied by a posh voice begging for, “Help, please help us!” There was true fear in that masculine voice and Erik was on his feet and headed to the door before he registered that he was moving.

    Domestic Disturbance (WaxRhapsodic) is one of my favorite blended family stories. Its super cute story of Erik and Charles coming together and being a family but with interesting plot points - such as Regina and her alcoholism and Emma with her pro-psi group. I like the concept of Charles research of baseline parents of psionic children having different mental shields. I really love the portrayal of Sharon Xavier in this as its probably the first time I've seen her shown in a positive role.

    Gods & Monsters (ShanaStoryteller) - A friend recommended these retold myths to me recently on tumblr and I just fell in love with what ShanaStoryteller had done! I always think this one is my favorite until the new one is presented but I don't mind that at all!! One of my greatest passions has always been mythology and Greek mythology has always been close to my heart due to being the first I ever read.

    Summary

    Erik and Charles meet and fall in love. I wanted to write a story where Erik had a huge family. Pretty fluffy (for me anyways). I suck at summaries.

    Bashert (AvengingAngel) is an extremely darling story. I love all the details dropped throughout the story - such as Erik being from a large and loving family and Charles running a Center for mutant youths. n this one Charles has a passion for researching mutant gifts along family lines. The family that Charles and Erick create with Tabitha and Max is so sweet and adorable that I very much want to join in on the cuddles. There is wonderful nuances written into the cast so that everyone has the feel of multilayered motivations in how they act.

    Summary

    Tyrion knew, as he gazed up at the dark skinned Martell man that this was perhaps his only chance to spirit Sansa out of King's Landing and away from his father's greedy fingers. Tywin Lannister would have married the girl himself if he felt he could have gotten away with it, and so Tyrion knew his own marriage was no protection to Ned Stark's daughter whatsoever.

    "Invite her, demand her, steal her--whatever you choose, Prince Oberyn, choose it soon. Else my lady wife shall break into more pieces than the stars."

    For Fear Tonight Is All (Silberias) is an epic tale and the reason that I ship Sansa/Oberyn/Ellaria. Its a wonderful divergent where Sansa is rescued by the dashing Oberyn and married into safety. This ripple of change has Oberyn surviving his fight with the Mountain That Rides and returning home to Dorne. I like how Silberias has Sansa get to know both Ellaria and Oberyn on the travel to Sunspear and that she is able to grow into affection and love. Its a delight to see how Silberias keeps everyone's internal voice constant with who knows what information or how they understand situations while spinning a tale of drama and politics around the main characters.

    I do admit I hope that eventually Sansa goes North with her children to be Queen of the North. After all - there must always be a Stark in Winterfell.

    Ghost (cywscross) is one of my absolute favorite Naruto stories. It isn't told like the usual time-travel story, where the point-of-view is that of the traveler, but instead told from the view of the 'younger' self. Here Naruto meets Yuurei, the titled 'ghost' who has been watching out for him and Konoha, and concludes that the man is a relative (all the while wonderfully subtle hints are dropped that Yuurei is actually an older Naruto). They develop naturally into a mentor-student relationship with the warm tones of connecting family. Due to this relationship the author develops a more competent Naruto while showing off just how BAMF!Yuurei became on his own.
