I'm still finishing up the last of the edits on the big bang fic, so here are some quick and dirty fic recs:

Five Times
by Davechicken: (GOTG) This one's been bookmarked on my AO3 profile for a while now. I can't believe I haven't mentioned it here before, because it has some of the best Peter-and-Yondu-related angst I've ever read. Period. It's also under 1,000 words, so if you're looking for a quick but heartwarming/heartbreaking read, I can't recommend it enough. 

Experiential Learning by significantowl: (Daredevil) Father Lantom somehow convinces Matt to volunteer as the arts-and-crafts teacher for Vacation Bible School. Honestly, isn't that all the recommendation you need?

In Search of Old Dreams by anaraine: (Labyrinth) Another short-but-sweet story focusing on Toby and his longing for a place and a person he barely remembers. This fic captures the magic and darkness of the movie so well. Plus, the writing's gorgeous. 
 
Tune My Heart to Sing Thy Grace by dynamicsymmetry: (The Walking Dead) A short, heartmeltingly adorable meeting between Daryl and Beth. This one's set around season 4, when everyone at the prison is trying to scrape together some sort of Christmas celebration and actually succeeding. Beth and Daryl have wonderful chemistry, and it's so refreshing to read a fic in this fandom where everybody's happy for once.

This is the month of bizarre crossovers, apparently.

Sisters by marinarusalka: (Pacific Rim, MCU) Natasha Romanov and Sasha Kaidanovsky are trained together as kids in the Red Room. This fic does an amazing job of blending the two worlds, and Natasha and Sasha's friendship feels exactly right; in some ways they couldn't be more different, but they share a terrible past and understand each other like no one else does.

A Star Among the Moons by theladyscribe: (The Lord of the Rings, Firefly) A super-short two-part crossover that ships Boromir and River Tam. Hey--don't knock it till you've tried it. This pairing is beyond weird, but it just works. River is River, and Boromir's bewildered yet charmed by her. This one's a quick read, and very well-written.

Only Held by Gravity (The Chronal Navigation Remix) by Muccamukk: (The Lord of the Rings, Firefly) A remix of A Star Among Moons that explores juts how River ended up in Middle Earth. This one also goes into a little more detail when it comes to her odd friendship/romance with Boromir, and ends on a perfectly ambiguous note.

Might or might not turn this into a monthly thing. I've read SO MUCH good stuff recently and figured it was time to share. It's mostly gen this time around. Also mostly Marvel. 

Tough Girl is What I Had to Be by angel_deux: (Daredevil) Set some time after season 2. I'm a sucker for Lisa Castle Lives AUs, and this is one of my absolute favorites. Lots of emotion and heartwarming father-daughter scenes. Plus, it ships Frank and Karen. What more could you want?

Kings Among Runaways by Viva Rocksteady: (Jessica Jones, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) The Jessica Jones/Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt crossover you never knew you needed. Jessica is hard-edged and cynical, Kimmy is as adorable as they come, and their friendship comes off as surprisingly believable.

it's the skin and bones that keep me on the road by impossibleamypond: (Star Wars) A missing scene between Rey and Han. Incredibly well-written and bittersweet.

our lives umbilical by duchamp: (Logan) Set after the movie, and most definitely not an Everybody Lives AU. Laura moves on, but she never quite gets over Logan and what they could have had. Beautifully written. Also very, very sad.
