    You ever find one of those fics that you read just out of curiosity? Like you didn't really think you'd be into it but why not, right? And then you read it and you just...fall in love. The characters, the world they've built, the relationship they're brewing - you just don't want it to end.
    This is one of those fics. I read the first in this series years ago and have returned to it many times since. And now the author's returned to it, and whether there's more to come or the story ends here, I'm just so happy this exists. This series is just so tender and earnest, the underlying melancholy of grief for the past and anxiety for the future trumped by this pure sense of hope.
    This series is a beautiful slow burn, expertly written and subtly told. Bofur is fleshed out as more than just a carefree miner, with a deep look into the heart behind the hat and silly moustaches. Elros the Mirkwood guard, despite what little screen time he gets in canon, is brought to life in a way not many elves are in this fandom. He's much quieter and more awkward than most elves I've read, sweeter and quirkier.
    Reading this is like sipping a hot mug of tea on a rainy day. If you're looking for something tender and playful to soothe your soul, I simply can't recommend this series highly enough.

    Summary

    You would think it would be difficult to accidentally rob a bank! So did I.

    (From a post by Feynites: “I’d like to see John Mulaney play a live action Riddler. But not, like, as any character other than John Mulaney? Just this socially awkward disaster man who somehow becomes a supervillain because of a misunderstanding he couldn’t correct without ‘seeming rude’.”)

    Imagine John Mulaney became a Gotham supervillain, then got on stage and did a special about it. That's what reading this is like; it's so well written and funny I could hear Mulaney's voice in my ears, see his movements and facial expressions as he details robbing banks in my mind. In fact, I'm not entirely convinced this wasn't written by the man himself.
    10/10 would recommend for Mulaney and DC fans everywhere.

    Read part of this on tumblr (Wandering Through Purgatory) and love it! Saving for when the next time I fall back into the Spn fandom.

    Summary

    Jaspert’s gaze didn’t waver. “I said stuff it. I don’t want to hear some speech-in-a-can, your princeliness,” he said flatly. Deryn’s teasing nickname sounded more like an insult coming from him. “I’m in the Air Service too, in case you’d forgotten. I know blether when I hear it. So try again.”
    --
    Deryn brings Alek home to meet her family. He has no idea what he's in for.

    An absolutely fabulous read for anyone into the Leviathan series. Both hilarious and heartwarming, with fairly spot-on characterization to boot.
