longlivehumour: Levi - So ist es immer (levi)
[personal profile] longlivehumour
Given two W fics for the same fandom, I refuse to choose. Have both, and may they serve you well.

FANDOM: Attack on Titan
FIC LINK: wound deep in your chest, heartless
AUTHOR LINK: [personal profile] 100demons
RATING/WARNING(S): T | swearing, canon-typical violence
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 4,400
MAIN CHARACTERS: Levi, Hange Zoƫ, Erwin Smith

FIC SUMMARY: Be good or Levi will carve you up with his knives. Eat your greens or else Levi will come and cut your eyes out while you still breathe.

RECCER'S NOTES: A delightful, believable fic about Levi's early days in the Corps. (It also begins by quoting a Margaret Atwood poem, and how can you go wrong after that?) The language is vivid, precise, and humorous, and Levi and Hange's interactions are a thing of beauty.
Horse shit and sunrises.



FANDOM: Attack on Titan
FIC LINK: We Are The Lost, We Are The Hunters
AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] PresquePommes
RATING/WARNING(S): G | Mild spoiler for the first episode of Season 2 (ch. 35)
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 2,700
MAIN CHARACTERS: Levi, Sasha Braus

FIC SUMMARY:
"He realizes very quickly that of all people he could have been lost in the forest with, Sasha Braus is, without a doubt, the most preferable."
Because if the 104th was a graduating class, Sasha is the one who'd be voted "Most Likely To Survive Under Extreme Circumstances," and everybody who writes this scenario seems to forget that the extent of Levi's wilderness survival skills is made evident by one simple statement:
"Look at all these big-ass trees."

RECCER'S NOTES: This fic made me crave more Sasha-and-Levi stories. There aren't any, of course, and this is hardly surprising since I'm not sure the two have even spoken in canon, but despite (or perhaps because of) how dissimilar they are, here they come together wonderfully. Sasha's voice in particular is a joy.

RATING/WARNING(S): PG
WIP?/WORD COUNT: one-shot at 5,357 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Luck Gandor, Claire Stanfield

FIC SUMMARY: When Luck buys a bar, he isn't expecting all the repercussions.

RECCER'S NOTES: A wondeful sense of family and friends permeates this fic, and Luck's discovery and slow realization is well-done and leaves us with a sense of hope. It's good to see how Claire and Chane's relationship might work out! And I particularly adore Miria and Isaac's cameo. :3 Post-canon character drama.

RATING/WARNING(S): Teen
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 5,917
MAIN CHARACTERS: Zelda, Impa, Sheik

FIC SUMMARY: Zelda grows up, with work to be done.

RECCER'S NOTES:

An amazing story of the seven years Zelda spent waiting for Link to awaken as the Hero of Time. I love the characters she becomes as she has to hide from Ganondorf, and I love that she becomes those characters so deeply. Each alias is a full character in its own right, and each leaves its own mark on Zelda.
