Modern Love, by penknife
Discworld ensemble ; PG-13
It's amazing how the world rarely gets less complicated.
penknife takes on issues of queerness and gender presentation in the dwarf community and brings a thoroughly enjoyable story to life with her usual lightness of touch.
Walking in these Shoes, by redfiona99
Pepper/Tony ; PG ; spoilers for the film
Pepper Potts is the woman she'd always wanted to be. It's probably not all Tony's fault that her well-ordered life has just been blown to pieces. But it's definitely mostly his fault.
Not only is this a thoughtful and kick-ass study of Pepper, it also features explosions. That's all you really need to make me a happy reader.
Now You're a Man, by cho_malfoy
Dean ; PG ; spoilers for 4x01
Dean completed a journey in the body he was born with, but just because he's started a new journey doesn't mean he's likely to forget the last one.
I love Dean in this, I love the style, and I love the twist on the fourth season presented here: I know it's one I'd loved to have watched.
Turn The Page, by messageredacted
Sam/Dean ; NC-17 ; AU of the pilot
Sam hasn’t seen his sister in four years. A lot more has changed than he ever imagined.
Sam/Dean is not particularly my thing, but this is a very good story. The retelling of the pilot is very nicely done, and there's a lot of detail and pitch-perfect interaction here.
What He Should Have Been, by sunnyrea
Ianto, Ianto/Lisa, Ianto/Jack ; PG-13
When Ianto was a little girl all he wanted was to be able to wear his father's suits. Now he does, but his family doesn't want anything to do with him.
This story's got a lot of heart to it, and it makes me smile. Oh, Ianto.
Also, not connected to the fest but nonetheless a great story - Little Sister by invisible_lift, a beautifully-written family history for Tosh.
