salinea: Two woman dancing together "dance with me" (dance with me)
[personal profile] salinea
Most of those are Yuletide fics; but perhaps not all. So yeah I finally finished reading all the Yuletide fics I meant to read this year - four months late! - but on the plus I'm pretty sure it's the first year I actually manage doing that instead of letting the last fics trail into forgettingness.

Odinstattur (1711 words) by Neotoma
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Norse Mythology
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings, No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Loki/Odin, Odin/Frigg
Characters: Óðinn | Odin, Loki (Norse Mythology), Frigg (Norse Mythology)
Summary:

Once, Odin was young. Once, Odin was foolish. Once, Odin cross-dressed. And thereby hangs a tale.



Never - outside of Manara's Borgias - had the phrase "bag of dicks" taken such a literal meaning. It makes me giggle extra whenever I see Loki describe in those terms because of that! Anyway, wonderful Norse Mythology fic, with all the sense of fun and raunchiness of mythology, and also some clever characterisation.


Strange Aeons (6758 words) by sevenofspade
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Fantastic Four (Comicverse), Journey into Mystery, Young Avengers
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Characters: Victor von Doom, Valeria Richards, Leah (Marvel), Loki (Marvel), Cassie Lang
Additional Tags: timetravel
Summary:

Victor von Doom is not a babysitter, glorified or otherwise, despite the way his day is going.



This is a very nice fic, and not only because it manages to use three of my favourite bits of the Marvel Universe into one fic (Young Avengers, Journey into Mystery, a FF's Val & Doom's relationship). Sometimes a little bit hard to follow (time travel does that), but wonderful in any case.

Summary:

"Lester had seen some fucked up things in his fucked up life, so walking into his kitchen to see a dead man eating the last of his pudding didn't even make the top ten list."



I don't think I'll ever get tired of the fuckedupness that is Bullseye/Daken. They really scratch a part of my id well.

Summary:

"You're kidding me. He works for a lunatic like Norman Osborne, he's the fucking God of War, and he's doing domestic shit like putting his kid's pictures up in the communal kitchen?"

"You know how proud papas are," Mac said. "Oh, wait, I guess you don't."



And for the rest of the Dark Avengers; maaaan, I miss Ares and Alexander and how he was such a wonderful dad (or at least well meaning despite his flaws).

A fic that hit the edge of mindfuckery in such a delightful, wonderful true to canon way.

Some spoilers for Childhood's End, Young X-men, Necrosha, Second Coming, To Serve and Protect, and Wolverine and the X-men.



I miss those kids :( Wonderfully well done fic.

Additional Tags: Drabble Collection
Summary:

Life is a journey with snapshots kept in your memories



Death Gate was a special series of books for me when I was 15 or so; the sort I woudln't want to reread nowadays because I'd end up disapointed compared to my memory and I NEVER THOUGHT I'd find good fanfics for it; but OMG this fic is it. Series of little scenes spread through the series, with wonderful, subtle characterisation.

Characters: Genly Ai, Therem Harth rem ir Estraven
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe, Unresolved Sexual Tension, Kissing, Worldbuilding, Hurt/Comfort, Unreliable Narrator
Summary:

“A lack of feeling is a symptom of freeze,” he said, still grimacing. “Perhaps... well.” It was not like him to mince words, and I slowly began to worry. Perhaps this was some attempt at shifgrethor, or another incomprehensible Gethenian ritual which he assumed I knew and at which I could only balk. “To know anything of the intensity of it, I'll have to unfreeze it. To keep it from dying, if it hasn't. I've wasted enough time already; lie down.”



Very subtle story.

Summary:

Philip's journey from Paris was the shorter distance, yet he arrived later, almost as dark was falling. Richard, knowing his tactics well, refused to be goaded so easily into impatience. "I'll wager you wish you hadn't burned the bridge at Porte Joie now," he said cheerfully by way of greeting. "You could have been here in time for dinner. It was splendid, by the way. We saved you some scraps."

Great starting point and an interesting story overall even if I found the ending disapointing. Also that short scene with Magneto (in his role as a teacher to the New Mutants) was great.
