    Excellent and complete retelling from Peeta's POV. Probably one of the best explorations of the whole "Katniss is a mutt" thing I've seen.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian is married off to Wen Qing for political advantages. It's all good and well for most everyone involved until the day of the marriage comes-- only for Wei Wuxian to have the most eventful wedding night in world history, learn that he shares a considerable connection to his new wife in their love of science and research, and accidentally discover an interesting new application of the spiritual lingzhi mushroom.

    (Or; grandmaster-of-demonic-cultivation Wei Wuxian and let's-transfer-golden-cores Wen Qing get married politically and completely platonically, which goes about as well as could have been expected, in hindsight.)

    Pre-Sunshot canon divergence and now I want a hundred more stories of Wen Qing & Wei Wuxian's platonic arranged marriage hijinks.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is a great series overall for filling in backstory/world-building and well-done Games, but I would recommend it even if it weren't, because it has one of the best explanations/explorations of how the Capitol works, psychologically speaking, that I've ever seen.

    Summary

    The good news is that Lan Jingyi has found a mentor, friend, and constant companion through the difficulties in life.

    The bad news is that that’s because he’s been accidentally possessed by the Yiling Patriarch.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I was such a quiet dead person, Jingyi’s unwilling brain-guest is muttering irritably. I didn’t cause any trouble. I don’t deserve this! Ugh, I was better off dead.

    So…apparently suicidal ghosts are a thing, which is depressing to know. But at least the guy’s not murderously enraged anymore—he’s back to just being tired and done, and, under that, horrifyingly sad and lonely.

    Did history class lie to me about you? Jingyi demands.

    The Yiling Patriarch laughs bitterly. Well, everybody lied about me when I was alive. I don’t see why they’d stop after I died.

    -------------

    Pretty much the only thing I want from this fic is more. Which isn't to say it isn't complete as-is, it was just delightful and I didn't want it to stop.

    Summary

    Doom comes to Hawkins, Indiana. Population est. 30,000.

    It’s cold, that’s all, and the breeze is kicking up. That’s why Steve feels the chill go up his spine like someone dropped an ice-cube down his back.

    “Why wouldn’t I be real, El?”

    “The Aboleth got you.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Stranger Things is in many ways a love-letter to Stephen King; this fic is like Stephen King composing a love-letter back.
