This is Shirasade‘s fic and vid recs collection, starting 2015. (Unfortunately my recs from 2005 onwards were hosted on Delicious and went bust with the site, although I found an unsorted bookmarks list from 2010.)
Because I moved from Delicous to Tumblr and now WordPress, the older posts don’t look quite so pretty.

“You have to stay.” He tells her, hating himself even more than she hates him for manipulating her like this. “You have to stay and look after your people. They need you.”
She brushes aside a tear, and storms off, and leaves him standing and watching her retreating back.
But she’s retreating back to Camp Jaha, so at least he’s won. At least he’s won the most hollow victory of his young life.

An absolutely perfect alternative version post-Mount Weather, as Bellamy and Clarke have to learn to heal – and find that they’re so so together.
They called her a good queen, she heard.
But a bit odd, she almost always heard immediately thereafter.
She wasn’t sure she could argue with that.

A great Snow character study, with the added polyamory bonus.
It’s William who reminds her of Eric. No – that isn’t true. She never forgets Eric, would never forget Eric, could never forget Eric. No more than she could forget William, ever, and that thought is a deep one, a thought in her bones and marrow: that’s where William’s written, and Eric too now.

A lovely coda to the movie.
„Wo ist der Jäger?“ fragt William. Ich erschrecke ein wenig. Schüttle den Kopf.
William mustert mich eigentümlich. Ich halte seinem Blick stand und versuche, den Jungen von vorher, nein, von früher darin zu erkennen. Wenn wir so ruhig und maßvoll an diesem Tisch sitzen, ist das schwierig; ich erkenne mich ja nicht einmal selber.

I don’t really read German anymore, but I had a great yearning for a poly fic with these three – and this fic delivers beautifully.
Fighter has never wanted anything in his whole life the way that he wants Tutor. He has no road map for this. He’s never known anything like this. He thought he understood sex. He liked girls; girls definitely liked him. He’d fooled around with HwaHwa and it was good. She’d given him a blowjob once and he hadn’t come from it, but he had when she’d jerked him off later. It was fine.
He realizes now that he doesn’t understand anything.

Absolutely perfect Fighter POV, capturing both the amazing chemistry and the many emotions. *chef’s kiss*
Lizard-sitter wanted, the caption says. OK, not the most original innuendo Frong has ever heard, but he’s prepared to forgive that if the impressive bulge in those shorts is the real deal. As an added bonus, the man has a sculpted jaw, a dazzling smile, and a damn fine set of shoulders and biceps showcased by his sleeveless cycling jersey. Yeah, I’d sit on your lizard any day, Frong thinks, and swipes right.

This fic might be an AU, but it manages to capture both Frong in all his needy bottom glory and Thara’s hot weirdness perfectly.
Forcemarks are one of the unifying truths throughout the galaxy. You leave your mark on the people you love.

Short but oh so perfect, this is the “Finn has two hands” fic of my heart.
Tae Joo slumped forward until his head was resting on Guk’s shoulder. “Don’t be mad at me, Guk-ah,” he murmured, and nuzzled against him.
He knew the driver was paying attention, but Guk lifted a hand to Tae Joo’s hair anyway. He threaded his fingers through it. Too gentle, he thought, but didn’t stop.
“I’m not mad,” he promised, too honest but not able to stem the words. “I’m doing my job. But if you — if you keep doing that. I might not be able to.”
I can protect you from everything but me, Guk thought, but as with most things, he didn’t say it.

An absolutely perfect 5+1 times fic that captures Gook’s heartache during all those years – and the closure once they’re back together.
“Hey Mister Bear,” Saint says, taking his hand.
“Hey,” Zee says back, his voice a little rough.
Saint looks theatrically to the left and right, then bends down to Zee’s ear and says, “I wish I could kiss you right now.” It’s so incongruous, given all they’ve been doing, that Zee wants to laugh, but at the same time he feels a squeeze around his heart. He thinks he knows what Saint means. He wishes it too.

These two boys have the most amazing chemistry, and this ficlet feels way too plausible… 😉
He can wait, but it isn’t easy. He doesn’t want to let go, not at all, not to let Guk put the suitcase in the trunk, not to buckle their seatbelts, not to escape any prying eyes. He used to be able to touch Guk any time he wanted, though never as much as he wanted, and now it’s been three years and he’s starving.

The perfect coda for this perfect little gem of a show.
