More fic recs!

From [community profile] rs_games:

Hope & Legacy: Black Brothers Edition R A few weeks before the start of the next figure skating season, Sirius receives word that his parents have kicked the bucket. He promptly travels back to England for no good reason at all, exasperated husband in tow. Team Sirius.

There's art with the fic and magical skating! But also there's the Black brothers who are trying to fix a relationship that's fallen on the wayside after Sirius ran away from the family. And also an asexual Sirius who has the best supportive husband. The exploration of asexuality is very good here, I think. Having an asexual character who is quite happy to sleep with his husband (whom he loves) despite forgetting to have the sexy times because he doesn't really have those urges. It's good to have different kinds of representation and I like having non-sex repulsed asexuals in fics too.

Colours NC-17 Today is their wedding anniversary. It’s the first time Sirius has remembered it, since Azkaban. He decides to mark the occasion. Team Sirius.

Sirius and Remus get married during the first war! And then things go to shit and Sirius has to deal with that. The descriptions of Sirius getting himself back, just the good moments where he can actually remember the past and it's not all an Azkaban haze is so good. Plus I don't know if I've ever mentioned this but I'm actually not a big fan of Sirius's tattoos in the movies? But author makes very VERY good use of them in this fic and I'm sold.

A Day Like Any Other R The one where Sirius keeps receiving unwanted mail, Remus drinks a lot of tea, Peter's out on a hot date, and James is offering unwanted make overs.
(Or the answer to the question of exactly how many cursed letters can you flush down the loo).
Team Sirius.

So I'm sure lots of you are waiting for this artist's entry for the games and as usual they don't disappoint! This is Sirius and Remus after Sirius has left the Noble and Most Ancient House of Black and while there's a lot of cuddles and cosiness going on there's also a bunch of letters from Walburga that Sirius keeps flushing in the toilet. The thread that ties Sirius to his house and his beginnings are strong, but there is the warm and solidity of Remus's presence by his side and that's all that matters. Very warm and charming!

The sun always comes G Sometimes it is too much, but there are always reasons to keep on going. Team Remus.

Very cute series of snapshots from Remus's life, with his friends and with Sirius. The colours are amazing, I especially love the last one with the sunrise, it does evoke a gentle kind of light aside from a new beginning. The boys' expressions are great too!

And have some Bungou Stray Dogs stuff because why not!

Build Upon the Ruins by izanyas. E The famous and all-winning Double Black gets put aside to gather dust after a battle against a kaiju leaves one of its pilots badly injured. Four years later, the threat against humanity is too dire to afford not to use a fully functional jaeger. Ozaki Kouyou orders Dazai to find a new copilot and fight again.

Chuuya is all for it. Dazai is not. Kunikida finds himself trying to understand the gap full of unsaid things that stands between them both.

Pacific Rim crossover, Soukoku, and all the other ships that I like. I love this fic to pieces even if it sometimes tears my heart. Very good fight scenes with the kaiju as well, and all around good world building. Granted these are already created worlds, but actually adjusting two different canons to make the crossover work is a delicate balance and I love it when it happens like this.

in the park by TheGreatCatsby. T+ Oda goes to the park to write, and finds that he enjoys the company of the man who takes a nap under a nearby tree every day.

I didn't know I wanted this fic until I actually read it. Oda is alive and finally doing what he's always wanted to do. His kids are also alive. Chuuya is still with Port Mafia, but also he's tired because his former partner has left and now they need a new executive. They meet sometimes in the park, and after a while Oda decided to talk to the guy. It's a quiet little fic, with a lot more details left unsaid, but it's powerful exactly because of that. This is the Oda we deserve. ;;;
