What I've Been Reading - W/E 08 FEB 2019
What I've Been Reading W/E 08 FEB 2019
Finished up "A Dying Light in Corduba", and I'm now on to "A Body in the Bath-house" (ISBN 0-7126-6964-7), also by Lindsey Davis.
Still working through "Frederica".
New Game + by Tayani - P5 AU, WIP, this is the latest chapter in the fic.
Don’t Make Me Delete This Chatroom by Dots - P5 phone chat silliness, technically a WIP, but only one chapter extant. Light-hearted fluff.
To Catch a Tiger Cub, One Must First Enter the Tiger’s Lair by AyuOhseki - P5 "bad ending" AU WIP, wherein the protagonist becomes a captive in the Metaverse.
Heat of The Moment by Blackwings91 - P5 post-game Protagonist/Ann "getting them together" fic. Nice and light, stops before things get too hot and heavy.
Flunking by volti - P5 Protagonist/Makoto WIP. This one is a fairly long chapter fic - I wound up reading it over two days.
Once More, With Feeling by beesandtoes - P5 AU WIP - this one is a "Groundhog Day" AU - the protagonist is repeating the same day over and over.
Once More, With Feeling by beesandtoes - and here's the latest chapter of that one.
A Dream We Found Huddled Under a Cloak of Stars by AyuOhseki - P5 AU WIP. This one is a poly triad AU, Protagonist/Haru/Akechi.
Anniversaries by MasterofMysticArtes - P5, Futaba asks for help dealing with a bad anniversary.
Black & Red by Alexilulu - P5 trans charcters WIP, Haru-centric.
Crimson by Dowdz - P5 rewrite to AU, WIP, very long. This one follows the early game fairly faithfully, but goes into AU territory shortly thereafter.
Crimson by Dowdz - This link is to the latest chapter.
[affection via affiliation] by Feather (lalaietha) - part of the "[to see you there]" series, Tony/Pepper centred. MCU, no official canon post CA:TWS
life as a series of moments by Feather (lalaietha) - another installment in "(if i could make a deal with god)". MCU, no official canon post CA:TWS
[your albatross: the things you’ve said and the things you’ve done] by Feather (lalaietha) - part of [to see you there]. MCU, no official canon post CA:TWS
Enlightenment by joisbishmyoga - Persona 3, 4 and 5 crossover/fusion AU WIP. I've seen joisbishmyoga around in a few other fandoms, and they're usually a pretty good writer, so I decided to try this one on spec... so far, so interesting.
Feels Like Love by Joker (wingblade) - P5 Protagonist/Yusuke.
getting it back to good by melowh - P5 post-game Goro fix-it WIP, wherein Akechi is amnesiac and undergoing therapy.
getting it back to good by melowh - and the latest chapter of that one.
He Can’t Talk And I Can’t Walk by DeliciousDanish - P5 University-age AU with characters with disabilities. WIP. Protagonist/Ryuji.
Intoxicated by Jelaine_The_First - P5 A/B/O dynamics fic. I'll confess I stopped reading this one before the end of the first chapter. Mainly, I must confess, because of my own issues with A/B/O. Basically, in order for me to get through A/B/O, it has to be extremely well-written and actually deal with some of the issues the whole damn trope sparks. This fic appears to be playing the trope straight (well, slashy, but you know what I mean).
Kintsukuroi by kunoko - P5 post-game AU Yusuke/Akechi
Rust In My Own Blood by Gotham’s_Only_Wolf - FF7 AU of an AU WIP, this is the latest chapter.
Phantom Stardust by TheWabbajackX - P5 rewrite/AU WIP. Protagonist/Ann, and very much centred on the relationship there.
sit next to me by rabidgopher - P5 Protagonist/Ryuji post-game smutfic.
uncertainty principle by akc - P5 AU Protagonist/Goro friendship fic.
What If… Was For Girls by MagicalMilly - P5 AU WIP. This one suffers from a case of "nice concept, execution isn't quite up to it". It's a "protagonist is female" AU, and it's clear the writer has put some thought into what they're doing, but unfortunately, word choice errors really take away from this for me, and the writer isn't quite skilled enough to carry it off smoothly - things are a bit too deliberate and a bit too clunky. I'll keep an eye out for this writer in other fandoms in a couple of years time, because the flaws I'm finding in this story are mainly ones which can be solved with time and practice.
So, that's what I've been reading. Anyone else got any recommendations?
