    Bookmarker's Notes

    I can’t believe I’m reading Alias fic in 2022. I don’t even remember why I started searching for something in this fandom to read, but I could never regret reading this masterpiece (well, I do think it was a bit of a mistake to read this the week of my first Anatomy exam). I thought I was done with the “morally grey badboy” and “girl who’s an absolute bamf” pairing. Turns out I was dead wrong because if you look at my screentime, you’ll see I was glued to my phone reading this series for the past few days.

    I adored all the installments of this ‘verse, and I found that the bodyswap component wasn’t even the main allure of this for me. The author does a marvelous job handling the cast’s characterizations and the dynamics between each of them. I found that they gave justice to characters that could prove tougher to nail down due to their complex and interesting natures, most importantly Sark, Irina, Sloane, and Lauren. A wonderful rewrite of S3/S4, and I was very invested in the plot. In my opinion, Rambaldi was definitely one of the weirder aspects of the show but it’s a very intriguing plotline to me and I enjoyed reading about it in the second installment, Seven Years.

    Sydney and Sark were amazing. Does the pairing have a toxic foundation? Maybe. And yeah, I know Sark’s a slippery bastard, but I couldn’t help but like him in the show. Hell, if there’s one thing we have in common, it’s that we’re in love with Sydney. But I really liked the development of their relationship; enemies to lovers can be tricky to be in character, but I thought it was really well done here. Their dynamic was really cool to see throughout Mirror Image and Seven Years, and Unexpected was so sweet.

    In Seven Years, I actually found myself invested in Nadia’s story. I do have to say her and Michael’s romance was something I could not get on board yet. I mean, it was alright and I wasn’t super against it; it’s just that Michael’s just so... cardboard-like. However, I think the author did a great job with writing all the characters, and Michael is included of course. I could see how certain events could lead to his actions. In terms of other characters, I enjoyed seeing the ensemble make their appearances and/or be mentioned. Basically, the series felt like it could fit within canon.

    Anyway, I had a great time reading, and I loved the writing. A good and brilliant read! <33

    That was great, I absolutely had so much fun with Chandler and Joey! I was immediately intrigued by the concept and the execution was great. Lovely alternate universe and the characterization felt on point.

    Chandler and Joey were so adorable. Upon further reflection, I don't think I've ever read a fic with the main pairing including someone of the true "himbo" personality type. Joey's so sweet, love that guy. Chandler's voice was perfect, and I really liked seeing the other characters pop up like Monica, Phoebe, and the Tribbiani family. Definitely the story that has convinced me of the Chandler/Joey pairing; Monica and Chandler are still one of my favorite couples, but I definitely see how Joey and Chandler could fit together. Nice!!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I read straight through this story early in the morning when I was midkey hungover, and I guess I wanted a distraction from the utter humiliation of last night (holy shit, I nearly kissed my friend in the bedroom of another friend because I was feeling a little lonely -- kids, seriously do not drink and smoke at the same time... help). I came here needing distraction from a crisis and instead got smacked in the face with another one, welp. You might wanna disregard everything I wrote before this... let's talk actually about the story.

    I'm going to be real with you, anything this author writes is just fabulous. Wonderful take on the first Karate Kid movie, and I like the incorporation of the deleted scenes. Characterization is on point, as always. Can't wait to read more!

    This was great! I adore fics that delve into MI-6 dynamics, especially between Q Branch as well as our favorites including Q, Bond, Eve, Tanner, and M. Loved the original characters (R, Farid, Sam, Jessica!), and I had fun. Interesting plot that ties into Spectre, and I had fun reading it. Fluff with a good dollop of action.

    Amazing. Lovely tie-ins to canon. Wonderful descriptions of artwork, but I think the story is also a piece of art in of itself. Intriguing dynamic between Sam and Steve; Sam and Bucky is super precious, especially at the end. <3 Honestly, I can't get enough of Sam's POV. Love that man.

    That seems to be the thing that breaks the ice between them; Bucky's never really hung out with Sam before, past being jammed into a too-small car for six hours and then two uncomfortable months in a safehouse trying not to get on each other’s last nerve. Now they’re getting lunch or coffee every few days. Sam falls asleep on Bucky’s couch three more times. Bucky joins him and Steve a couple of times on their morning run.

    He doesn’t notice, is the thing; doesn’t notice how ever since Sam slept on his couch that night he’s been letting Bucky closer bit by bit, that as Bucky’s been wondering about the boundaries and structures of friendship, Sam’s been drawing in.

    And to make matter’s worst, which is just her luck, really, no surprises there, a car turns the corner, engine roaring, and slows down as it nears the school. Not any car either, no. Billy Hargrove’s blue Camaro is a one of a kind car here in Hawkins, and right now, it’s screeching to a halt.

     

    Great. That’s just– great. The town’s douchebag, just what she needed.

     

    He rolls down the window, lays on his charm, giving her the kind of grin that makes the girls swoon in the halls. Too bad for him, really, this kinda shit isn’t gonna work on Robin. “Hey there, beautiful. You wouldn’t happen to have seen my sister, would you?”

     

    Robin frowns, gives him an unimpressed look. Not really what she had been expecting, but better than being harassed. “Do I look like I know who your sister is?”

    *

    or, Robin has car trouble and somehow, that changes everything.

    Summary

    “Shit,” Sam says, staring at the thin golden ring on his finger. He blinks quickly, like he’s pushing through it all: the hangover, the too-bright sunlight, the pure insanity of this moment. Bucky watches the dark curl of his eyelashes, staring for just a second too long.

    Sam blinks again, then starts to laugh. “Shit. Well, I guess we’ll have to file for annulment.”

    And maybe it’s the leftover buzz of the alcohol, or maybe it’s the way that Sam has started to feel like safety to him, but something makes Bucky blurt it out; he clears his throat and says, “Yeah, or we could just stay married.”

    Broke me and built me up again. Truly a gift wrapped in layers of domesticity, found family, and softness. Sam and Bucky made my heart sing, and Bucky's trauma made my heart hurt. Sam is one beautiful man. Did I nearly cry multiple times? Maybe. Maybe I nearly cried at Bucky working at the gym and Kate being such a great friend. Maybe I also cried near the end when it wasn't looking too good for them and maybe I got emotional over America/Kate being cute. Maybe I'm just a sucker for domesticity and like seeing people happy, I dunno.

    The kind of story you feel blessed to read. A roller coaster of emotions I'd glady ride again. <33 so thank you!

    Summary

    Bucky is so competent that it hurts my feelings is not a rational complaint to have about a person, and yet, after a year of being Captain America and partnering up with Bucky for the new and improved, post-Blip Avengers, that’s kinda how Sam’s feeling.

    It’s not great. It maybe leads to Sam making some rash, ill-advised decisions like claiming he has a previously undisclosed superpower, and then getting caught in a web of lies when he ends up actually developing that surprisingly inconvenient superpower. Talking to birds had seemed like a harmless superpower, but it turns out that birds have a lot of opinions, and they don’t hesitate to tell Sam about them, especially when it comes to his supposedly subpar courting skills. Which is ridiculous, because Sam isn’t courting Bucky. Right?

    So much fun! Sam and Bucky were adorable, and the birds were so hilarious. Loved all the New York vibes of the fic, and the birds' accents matching the vibe is perfection. Interesting case, and I love how the author captured Sam's voice/POV.

    I guess my only "con" would be Bucky's characterization, but it's understandable since the author wrote it before TFATWS. It's not a big thing at all and I still loved Bucky here regardless, but something about his character made me think of Castiel from Supernatural and I absolutely abhor the fact my brain made that connection.

    Anyway, besides that, this was great!! <333 much love

    Damn, that was so much more dark than I thought it would be, but it was also a really, really cool journey. Incredible worldbuilding (loved all the animal stuff) and delves deep into magical theory (wand, will, word, and WILD!). Truly unique and shows a BAMF Harry who is willing to what it takes to achieve his goals (helping his parents, Voldemort, etc). Intense, heartbreaking, and demonstrates some really great writing. Harry's relationships with Minerva, Terry, Neville, and Regulus were beautiful. <3

    All Goro Akechi wanted was to be a well-respected detective. If that meant enduring a slew of meaningless fluff cases assigned by the higher-ups, so be it. If it meant spending his free time chasing after baseless rumors about a high school gang of self-described "social reformers", fine.

    Except the rumors aren't so baseless after all, and as he attempts to catch these 'Phantom Thieves' in an actual, documented act of wrongdoing, he finds himself becoming entangled with the gang more deeply than he ever intended - all thanks to their leader, who decided to take a special interest in him. An obnoxiously flirtatious interest.

    “Hey,” he tries, “hey darlin’, can you pass me the milk?”

    “Oh sure,” Sam responds after a long pause. “Here you go. Sweetie.”

    “Thanks, hon, you’re a real doll,” Bucky drawls, and pours himself another bowl of cereal, tops up his coffee, takes a mouthful of milk straight from the carton just for good measure. Sam narrows his eyes.

    “That’s disgusting,” he sighs, and Bucky makes deliberate eye contact, swallows another mouthful. Sam holds his gaze. “Cupcake, come on, I gotta drink that shit, stop putting your mouth all over it.”

    “I’ll put my mouth all over wherever I want,” Bucky tells him. “Sweetheart.”

    “Will you just,” Sam mutters, and sips his black coffee like he’s totally unruffled, and Bucky is startled to discover that he’s the one who’s blushing. Shit. Maybe this was a tactical error.

    After he commits every single weapon in the hold to memory, Din finds himself cataloging more and more things about Skywalker instead, small observations that carve out a space in his mind unbidden.

    ---

    As much as Din likes to tell himself that he’s just been taking a well-deserved break, the truth is that for the six months following their daring rescue he’s been nothing but truly and utterly lost. That is until Luke Skywalker gives him a ship and hires him to help figure out what the hell the Empire needed the Child’s blood for.

    As they drift through the empty void of hyperspace, they slowly find unexpected companions in each other and realize their respective paths might not be as set as they once thought.

    "And he doesn't believe in love at first sight, not really, but he thinks then that you must be able to love someone retroactively, that he might have fallen in love with Din over a period of time, but that once he did, that first moment they met he’d already been in love, that what he feels now spans backward and forwards in time, just one singular state of being, beyond any logic or reason."

    I've been putting off writing the bookmarks for two other stories, but I immediately knew I had to write this one right away. (It's 4:39 in the morning. Yes, I know.) I was not expecting this ship of all things to make me emotional since I usually prefer pairings with heaps of canon material/interactions, but I truly think it's a testament to the writing that I've managed to be thoroughly convinced. In fact, this is precisely the kind of story of I've been looking for ever since I read a particular fic late August, a story that focuses on the characters' development and relationship with spoonfuls of heart, found family, and plot. Basically, the kind of story that feels like coming home. And... well, I found it. <3

    As you may or may not know, I have a weakness for general badassery, but especially for two loving BAMFs who fight side-by-side together. Man, oh man, did the author capitalize on that weakness. Din and Luke were wonderful together. I loved the inner explorations of Luke's psyche, the various angles he has a person, and his battle with the darkness. I loved Din's love of his people and the brightness he carries in his heart; I loved little Grogu growing up with Ben and Poe. I loved Luke and Leia's relationship and Leia being scary like her father; I loved Han being a good father and friend, and I loved how gentle the story was with the love Din and Luke shared for each other. Most of all, I loved this clan of mismatching people who end up fitting quite well together in the end and how Din/Luke face things together.

    (This is season 3. Change my mind.) Thank you for writing such a beautiful story with beautiful relationships. I think I needed this today. Soothes the soul with hope and joy.

    Fabulous. Love seeing Picard's repercussions with DS9's characters. Julian's attitude about the Federation felt in character, and I love the idea of Garak being supportive of Julian's actions. Really nice post-canon stuff, and I adore them being old, married, and fathers.
