    A lovely slice of life where the details tell the story with grace and without fanfare.

    Summary

    After the Master is dead and the world is restored, the Jones family is stuck with the memories of horrors they will never forget. Jack Harkness isn't exactly happy about it, either, but they're still going to wait, all of them, for the Doctor to come back from a burning pyre.

    Or: The Doctor decides to replace his emotions with all of the words he can voice in one sitting, as usual.

    Summary

    Steve gets out of the hospital in two days, but just barely. “I’m fine,” he tells Sam, Nurse Eunjung and the phalanx of doctors assigned to make sure Captain America didn’t bleed out and die and get bad PR all over their nice clean hospital. “I have an advanced healing factor. It’s fine. See? I’m standing.”

    “That is not standing,” Sam tells him.

    “You’re bending the IV stand,” Nurse Eunjung adds pointedly. “Let go and sit down, they don’t grow on trees.”

    aka Steve and Bucky's Global Honeymoon Revenge World Tour.

    Silentwalrus' and quiet night are a team made of hilarity and heartbreak. Silentwalrus' is just amazing at writing crack but also writing bleak, heart-rending angst. The parallel journeys of Bucky and Natasha were fascinating from a narrative perspective, and also so sympathetically done.
    And quiet night brings to the lot an incredible ability to switch voices, remain deadpan (how?) through the most cracky bits, be astonishingly emotional where it's needed, and uses special effects & music with astonishingly effective scarcity.
    Amazing work. Highly recommended. On my permanent re-listen list.

    MirandaTam's graceful words and ReenaJenkin's graceful voice are a perfect match of podficcing heaven
    AU where Shmi frees herself and goes with Anakin to the Temple, accepts Yoda as her Trainer, and quietly begins shifting events.
    I can't say enough how beautiful and graceful and badass this Shmi is, and this series is. On my "re-listen often" list

    Summary

    In September of 1971, Severus Snape finds a forgotten portrait of the Slytherin family in a dark corner of the Slytherin Common Room. At the time, he has no idea that talking portrait will affect the rest of his life.

    On 31st July 1995, Harry Potter disappears from Little Whinging a few minutes after midnight. The means of his departure are unfathomable, and the Order's only relief in their concern is the fact that Voldemort was not responsible.

    The rest of Wizarding Britain is too busy tearing down their Wizarding Savior via the press to be much concerned, at least until certain Slytherin allies decide that enough is fucking well enough.

    Wonderful characterisation. Beautiful dialogue. Delightful nerditry. Writing with heart.
