This was completely absurd, but somehow, this was his life now. Giving dancing lessons to the savior of the fucking world at a party being thrown in their honor, with what felt like half of Hong Kong in attendance.

Excellent and hot-as-burning Chuck POV post-movie.

“Don’t worry.” Zak leans up to kiss Kara’s cheek, then stands. “He’ll love you, too.” He heads toward the door. “Come on or we’ll be late.”

In spite of his warning, Kara slips down into his seat and stares into space for a minute. Her mind is blank except for that one word: too.

As much as I dislike cheating in real life, the chemistry between Kara and Lee right from the start can’t be denied, and this fic shows a plausible (and still mostly canon-compliant) way it might have gone.

And motion from the taller man, a twisting jerk away, turning his back to Lee, Zak’s confused stutter, standing and turning a shoulder toward the taller man, reaching a hand out to him, seeing Lee, his “Oh Gods, shit, frak!” The red rising to his cheeks, hand slipping off his cock and then more quickly back as a shield.

Lee choking out “What the hell, Zak?” at the same moment he hears “Leland Adama, if you left my door open…” in a affectionate murmur twenty feet behind him.

I simply love canon-divergent fics that explore Lee and Kara on Caprica, especially when they include her relationship with Zak. In this one they break up, and Lee is there to pick up the pieces. *happy sigh*

Lifeline, by astolat – Fast & Furious (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]

Brian stayed sprawled flat, his eyes mostly closed. His whole body felt heavy, satisfied all the way through. He managed to get enough of a hold on his brain to slide his hand down the guy’s arm, check his pulse—hard and steady but not hectic, his skin still warm, no sign he’d just donated what felt like at least a liter of blood zipping around Brian’s veins.

“What the fuck did I just do,” the werewolf said blankly.

Oh wow, what a ride! Love this take on vampires and werewolves and how they fit into this world.

Torque, by gwyneth rhys (gwyneth) – Fast and the Furious (2001) [Archive of Our Own]

Letty went out to the garage, sneaking up toward the door, not totally sure why she felt the need to sneak, but doing it anyway. The door was open only a sliver; she couldn’t see anything at all, just the light from the bare bulb overhead, a section of the wall with the trophies. Then she saw the back of Dom’s head, but it was…weird. Like he was doing something physical. Not just standing there talking.

Kissing. That’s how his head and neck moved, like he was kissing someone. When he shifted she could see Brian on the other side, his hands on Dom’s chest. And Dom was kissing him and laughing.

I’m a sucker for outside POV, but this is more of a Letty fic, and I love it!

The only soul I have I stole from you, by gwyneth rhys (gwyneth) – Kings (TV 2009) [Archive of Our Own]

We take lovers into our souls like we take water into our throats, Jack thought, we drink in their kisses and breathe their breath. We fall in love and we’re unmade. “Have a little faith,” David said.

This takes canon (why oh why did they make them antagonists?!?) and fixes it in the most stunning way. I adore this Jack and the way he finds himself again.

“Uhura said you did it for her,” Jim points out.

“That was a different situation. I was in complete control of what I was doing.” When Jim raises an eyebrow—somehow, he’ll make Spock lose control?—Spock repeats tightly, “I could not guarantee my actions.”

After “Into Darkness” Jim has trouble sleeping – Uhura thinks that Spock can help. I love how this can’t be any other version of Kirk and Spock than the Kelvin timeline – and it gets hot as burning.

He tries not to think about the tiny apartment around him and how it might become his home instead. It’s much too cold, the air too thick, the amenities painfully behind what he’s used to. But at least he’ll have Jim, so it will be bearable.
