    Summary

    When Hero arrived with her children but without Claudio, Beatrice hadn’t really wondered why.

    So complex and beautiful and loving and mundane. Benedick and Beatrice are married and have children. They love each other and live together and it is simple, normal, and revolutionary all the same. Hero leaves Claudio and comes to stay with them, bringing her two kids along as well. Claudio and Hero's marriage has long been unhappy and she trusts Beatrice and Benedick enough to finally unveil the story for them. They comfort Hero and reassure her that of course she can stay here And then at the end Beatrice and Benedick marvel that out of all the couples they know, they're the happy ones! Beatrice reminds Benedick to wear sunscreen and it's more impactful than it has any right to be.

    Summary

    Haruki is a young administrative assistant at a large power management company. He's just been assigned to spy on (in his capacity of personal aide) the strange Nakamura Chihiro-- a sensibly dressed Safety Inspector with a sensible husband tucked somewhere in the country, and a sensible approach to her work...

    ...and a closer relationship with the Spirit World than she puts on her resume.

    Kindly betaed by Gehayi and Bell Witch

    Oh this is brilliant and by far my favorite fic of Chihiro as an adult! She still works closely with spirits in her job supervising power plants, and at one point gives a slide presentation to a dragon! Haruki is a good counterpoint character to show how truly brave Mrs. Nakamura is, and I loved seeing him grow and struggle through this unfamiliar world to help her.

    A recovered passage written by Faramir about his grief and love for his fallen brother. I think his conversation with Pippin is my favorite part.

    Summary

    Ariel will not be sea foam or a queen. There is life beyond love. There is love in just living. Her true love will not be married on the morn--the prince will be married then, in glorious splendor, but he had never been why she was here.

    Ariel traded her voice for legs to stand on, a chance at another life. When she poked her head above the waves, it wasn't the handsome biped that she fell for. It was the way the hills rolled, golden in the sun. It was the clouds chasing each other across blue sky, like sea foam you could never reach.

    (She does reach it, one day, bouncing around in the back of a blacksmith's cart, signing jokes to him in between helping to tune his guitar. They crest up a high mountain pass and into the belly of a cloud. Her breath whistles out, swirls water droplets, and she reaches out a hand to touch the sky. Her feet will scream all her life, but after that morning they ache just a little bit less).

    This is so good and touches something inside me I didn't know I needed seen.
