  1. Summary

    People aren't like little bonsai trees that hold no grudge for being shoved into tight little spaces and being forced to grow in a certain way.
    --
    Sawada Tsunayoshi suffers gracefully under the weight of the seal for twelve long years, but a graceful descent into becoming less (or more than) human still results in a monster, doesn't it.

  2. Summary

    After Siberia, it all comes back to Stark. It always comes back to Stark. Maybe the universe is trying to tell Bucky something.

    Tony isn't taking the universe's calls, but when he gets stranded in the past of WWII with the Winter Soldier, it's time to face his demons and the music. It's just... did the music have to be some kind of Whitney Houston ballad? Seriously.

    Lan Xichen watched in disbelief as his brother played damsel in distress and the epitome of Yunmeng Jiang bravery and heroism launched himself at his crazed, Qi Deviating uncle to “save” him.

    The “Shameless!” that escaped him was entirely drowned by the chaos that broke out around him.

    Summary

    The man standing over him has eyes like knives, sharp and cold and black.

    “There are no masks allowed in the Ghost Fortress, Heavenly Official,” he says. His voice is polite, but it too contains knives.

    Hua Cheng can appreciate that. A blade is a blade is a blade. Sheathed or pressed to one’s neck, it is still just as sharp. There is no use pretending it is anything otherwise.

    The man in front of him is a blade held up to Hua Cheng’s heart, though perhaps he does not know it yet.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Kagami was on a roll now, nothing could stop the rant. It was the Uchiha Clan’s other kekkei genkai. “You tied me up with my own bridal rope. After I took you to a location of my choosing! If you’d just escaped while we were still on the ground this wouldn’t be happening!” An aggrieved groan built up in his throat. “Why is this my life now? I’m going to be disowned for marrying a Senju. By accident.”

    “Why were you arming traps with— what did you call it? Bridal rope? —if you didn’t want to be married?” Praise be, Tobirama finally moved off him. Kagami tugged at his bonds and stifled an embarrassing noise; Tobirama was really good at tying people up, there was hardly an inch of give.
    --
    RIP Kagami.

    Summary

    Here be various random excursions of my AU-producing brain.

    First up - wherein Shen Yuan transmigrates into an A/B/O fanfic of his least-favourite stallion novel, and regrets everything. What's up with this fucked up biology?!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Shen Qingqiu keeps her expression ambiguous behind her fan. “Men like to pursue docile women, of course. The smaller and more gentle you seem, the more appealing you are,” she explains. “Strong women intimidate them.”
    Luo Binghe nods thoughtfully. “I’m going to be strong,” she insists.
    Shen Qingqiu pats her hand. “Binghe most assuredly is.”
    Another nod, more resolute. “That will keep them away, then,” she decides, for some reason looking satisfied with her conclusion.

    – and Shen Qingqiu has been so busy pretending to be miserable that he has ignored how miserable he actually is –
    and he downs the tainted tea in one go.
    Luo Binghe stares at him from across the table, a wolf wielding sheep eyes and sheep tears and a wounded, wavering voice.
    “Shizun…?”

    While this skips a few important(?) plot points, it's exceptionally good and very satisfying. It gives a lot more consideration to SQQ's side of things than Canon does while also not overlooking LBH's. This hits a lot of buttons! Indulgent angst!! Pronouns to drive a point home!! There's a bit with some dreams that is embarrassing, but no humiliation. Overall, lovely read!!
