    okay this is absurdly good. needs a quick beta, i think, just to clean it up--the writer is possibly not a native speaker(?), because they have problems with tenses and common terms and there's an abundance of typos all through both fics. despite that, though, they obviously know how to use words well--the writing itself is evocative and beautiful as well as sharp and funny, and the emotions and relationship feel real. (also, obvious signs of research! historical accuracy! actual Islamic knowledge!)

    Summary

    Sometimes men are knives. Sometimes they wield them. 

    Wen Ning had never wanted to be a knife. He had wanted to be a boy, and then a man. He had wanted his sister not to worry, to never be afraid. He had wanted to be strong enough that she wouldn’t search for bruises under his skin or sleep restless at his bedside through fevered nights. 

    He did not think he would ever bruise again. He would not heal again, never watch purpled and yellowed flesh fade back to flushed, whole skin. He would never wake to her hand cooling his forehead. 

    Wen Ning would just go find a little river, after bad fights, and wash himself off gently. He’d sew himself up, a stitch at a time, and tell himself that because the pain felt different now it didn’t count as pain at all.

    Summary

    By the time Bucky rounds the doorway into Steve's hospital room and sees Sam, flipping through a medical file with a thunderstruck expression, he's prepared himself for just about anything to greet him on the other side of that curtain.

    What he's not prepared for is Steve saying, “Hey, Buck,” kind of sheepishly, and pushing all five-foot-four inches of himself a bit further up the bed.

    Summary

    There must have been a moment. When everything changed, whether or not he knew it. There must have been, but it’s impossible to find now. The full-color truth of it is already saturating a slideshow of black and white mental images and he can’t remember what they looked like before.

    or: it takes yuri plisetsky three years to realize he’s in love with his best friend.

    *screaming*

    i love this pairing, and this writer's good at the chaotic, defensive fury that is yuri. loved the bit where his friends close ranks around him; the general portrayal of friendships in this is lovely.
