    Summary

    Two long-time enemy nations can't become meaningful allies overnight. Stories from the lives of a border-guard Herald and Sunpriest, from their first meeting to the end, and insights into just how Karse and Valdemar were able to turn around their relationship so fast.

    One of my favorite series. The depth of interpersonal relationships is satisfying, esp. if you're not into slash or romance. Even if you are into those, it's still good. The world building that adds to Lackey's Valdemar series is nicely imagined and beautifully executed.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I have a crush on synecdochic's brain and most of her writing and this is a stunning example of why. This story has always resonated with me even before I had the unfortunate life experiences to empathize with the largely unspoken loss writ here. So many readers' tears. So strong a story, so beautiful and touching and just so much. Rodney's life as a love letter to his dead. It's just wrenching every time I've read it in the last decade (it's an autoread when I come across it).

    Summary

    While Jane and Thor search the universe in order to find Darcy after a lab accident, Darcy wakes up still on Earth, just decades in the past. Darcy continues to travel through time, skipping ahead years at a time, and staying for as little as a few months or for as long as a year. She has a rock-solid friendship with Rebecca Barnes, and Howard Stark on Fridays at six to see her through.

    I think epic sums this up. Just epic, in scope, in breadth, in character development, in story line, in emotion, in research. Just epic. Not sure why this *only* has 300-odd bookmarks.

    Summary

    Notting Hill AU, written for the i_k prompt, "I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her." Arthur owns a quirky hipster science bookstore. Eames is a world-famous mega-celebrity.

    Clearly this calls for a meet-cute.

    FYI, I never saw the movie and I haven't gotten into this fandom so I really don't have any baseline on cannon or fannon characters or their relationships. That said, this is a super smart, well-written, and researched fiction that was simply a joy to read.

    Clint Barton's presidential campaign started as a joke. It didn't end that way, except for Steve.
