    Bookmarker's Notes

    When Auda stops him in the shadowed corridors, he says he fears Aurens. He says he loves him.

    But truthfully, he fears how much he loves him. Even after all they've been through.

    This is one of those gems of a fic that takes all of the emotion brimming beneath the surface of a film and pulls it out into something that shatters your heart into a thousand pieces. Bittersweet and exquisitely moving. I'll be down here on the floor forever.

    "No faith required, though I'll keep it for you anyway, just in case." I have never been able to read this without being reduced to great heaving sobs. A pitch-perfect, bittersweet story about mistakes, regret, and the power of hope.

    Summary

    Because the meaning of life is "do the next thing", and we all carry the seeds of the past into our future. Futurefic, Rodney-centric.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Luring brilliant minds against all common sense and forcing them to own their brilliance, changing the face of everything that comes after. It's not something he ever thought he wanted, but when he sees it spun out on the horizon, he's realizing it's everything he never knew he needed. A gorgeous story about what draws so many of us to teaching: learning how to find hope in the future and leave behind the pain of our pasts.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "...how it hurts like a constantly deepening wound to love someone the way he loves Erik: with pathetic desperation, without regard for dignity, needful and begging." Sublime characterisation, masterfully plotted and paced, and with a depth of feeling that left me reeling. An absolute gift.

    Summary

    He dreams the war in every detail, in hard brittle dawns and the sound of cannons he can feel in the roots of his teeth. His men die, their blood splatter-pattern legacies on his hands and chest.
    What Aaron Burr learns his second time through the American Revolutionary War: he is not dreaming.

    What Aaron Burr counts is the number of times he fires his gun. This is everything I've ever wanted from a Hamilton/Burr fic. Oh my god.
