  1. Summary

    Master of Death wasn’t merely a cute title or an empty human phrase. Death needs a master for all those pesky human interactions he can’t handle from a metaphysical plane. Collecting the Deathly Hallows is only the beginning. A true Master faces a lifetime of tasks for Death.

    In other words, this is the story of one little girl growing up to become the Master of Death. And of all the adventures after that.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    An utterly enthralling au of the movie (and about the only place I've seen where you can like and root for Ransom as a likeable character and not just because you think Chris Evans is hot). The character development and the love story are both engaging and its fun to build on all of the great characters and plot points in the movie in a world without the tragedy of Harlan's death. So easy to visualize the characters doing this. And the ending is satisfying as well. Loved it as both an AU and a sort of meta look at the characters and motivations.

    A simply delightful story and the most peaceful Star Wars fic-it ever. Well written, humorous, and sweet, this never disappoints on rereads.

    Summary

    It is an unspoken rule: The Continuum does not interfere in that timeline. You know, THAT one. But hey, rules are made to be broken. Which is how after the destruction of Vulcan and the battle of the Narada, Jim gets to wake up in the morning... and try again. And again. And again. Honestly, he's starting to lose count.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A Groundhog Day idea written correctly and well. AOS best works when Kirk’s mistakes and stupidity from the movie are explained within a broader context and character development happens. And it certainly happens here. As kirk grows through his daily repetitions the author adds wonderfully nuanced characters appearances, without making the cyclical nature seem like a broken record. The relationships are delightful and bring that ache that they end for Kirk each day. The progress feels earned and reasonable. While this is clearly derivative of the two source movies, it is written in such a way that the story contains dramatic tension and seems to be building towards a wonderful catharsis.

    Summary

    No one knows what the Council is hiding, but the effects ripple throughout the galaxy. Anakin knows he is loved. Former slaves are freed. A long-lost Master and his Padawan are returned to the Temple. No one understands how Obi-Wan Kenobi does these things, but they are grateful for it anyway.

    A time-travel story from the points of view of everyone but the time travelers. Also my first ever fanfiction. Updates every Monday now, starting 4/20!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This story is exceptionally well written in terms of characterization, plot, tone, and style. But what has really differentiated this time travel Star Wars story from the masses is the strength of each chapter. Each chapter is written from the point of a different non-time traveler and contains its own themes and stories. At the same time, this is a cohesive work that continually is building towards a cohesive something as it moves chronologically. The chapters tell the part of the Star Wars Prequel years that makes sense for the POV character to be aware of (giving that sense that this is a large story, a universe in fact) but at the same time each story has the intimacy and immediacy of being vital parts of the characters lives. Each chapter has been a self-contained delight while also building surely to what by all accounts will be a marvelous and adventurous conclusion.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    It was a surprise to me that I even started reading this story as the Winter Soldier has never been a character or moral quandary I’ve really enjoyed diving into but this story captures all the horror while developing more and more tenderness and hope. This is a superior Marvel/HP fusion. Tony, Harry, Bucky, and Pepper are all fantastically drawn. A very compelling read with a future I am eagerly anticipating.
