Summary: "Pride goeth before destruction". She had grown up with those words tempering her every action, but it would be many years before they began to make sense.

Notes: Pride and Prejudice is great source for adaptation and I love the writer attention to historical and language detail to make this crossover work extremely well.

I love Brienne is playing the part of Elizabeth Bennet, she is still like herself making it more believable that Hyle Hunt can trick Brienne with false sincerity and that she still doesn't know her true feelings for Jaime. Jaime as Mr. Darcy was done brilliantly and that he didn't deny his 'sins' that maybe a problem for Brienne the further we get into the story.

I love how much Arya, Sansa, and the other ladies in canon are feature in this story.

Haven: Cold Light by [archiveofourown.org profile] novembersmith [Audrey/Nathan/Duke, Explicit, 32,936 words]
"Parker," Nathan says in greeting as she comes up beside him, shoving her hair behind her ears and squinting down at the rocks by the pier. They've got the floodlights on, silhouetting the scene in long, deep shadows.

"What have we got?" she asks, no-nonsense and on point, as always.

"You're going to love this," he assures her, and she cocks an eyebrow at him, clearly intrigued. "Go on. What weird mythological creature *haven't* we covered yet?"
Everything I could ever want in a Haven story is in this fic, having Nathan, Audrey, and Duke ending up together is just the best topping on already great cake.

Naruto: I got nostalgic to read Naruto fics for some reason and found some good ones.
A Thoughtful, Moving Exploration of Passionate Youth (or here) by [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden [Gai/Iruka, NC-17, 15,424 words]
It said something about Gai that Iruka was actually unsure whether that was a line.

Star Trek XI: The Greater Good by [livejournal.com profile] emiliglia [Kirk/McCoy, Sulu/Chekov, Spock/Uhura, NC-17, 29,020 words]
AU. Doctor Leonard McCoy thinks he's getting by, working as both a surgeon and a researcher at UCSF Medical Center. A chance encounter with Lieutenant Jim Kirk - who's changed since they first met five years before, and not for the better - forces Leonard to face reality about his own situation while trying to keep Jim from heading down the same path. So good, I read this one really quick, and was sad that there wasn't anymore to read, lovely AU.

Sucker Punch: forgive me darling, for every word i say (my heart is just too full of you) by [livejournal.com profile] immortality [Blondie/Amber, Sweet Pea/Babydoll, Rocket/Babydoll, R, 33,680 words]
AU. At prestigious Lennox Academy, every girl has her role, something which is especially true for a group of four loosely connected girls: there's Sweet Pea and Rocket, step-sisters and co-captains of the intramural soccer team who couldn't be any less alike; Blondie, the notorious bad girl with a reputation that precedes her; and Amber, the popular junior class president. However, the girls' neatly defined lives are thrown into chaos by the arrival of the new transfer student Babydoll and some startling revelations about themselves and each other. This was lovely, full of emotions and was so dreamy and hopeful, made me happy to read it even when drama was happening. Love that it was also set in period.

The Eagle: Fighter (or here, or here) by [livejournal.com profile] planjane [Esca/Marcus, Explicit, 65,291 words]
Marcus Aquila is an undercover Metropolitan police officer. His assignment is to infiltrate a slave-trafficking organisation which trades in men, bought and sold to fight in cages, sometimes to the death. When he makes the impulsive decision to intervene during a 'kill fight' involving a fierce young fighter called Esca, Marcus inadvertently finds himself the owner of his very own slave. Now Marcus has to find a way to complete his assignment, as well as gaining Esca's trust, without blowing his cover. The question is, can he do it before the secrets and lies catch up with him, and Marcus loses everything?

Charles wakes up to find he's been in a coma for two years, and the world he thought he lived in is a lie.

Time to Grow by [archiveofourown.org profile] zarah5 [Charles/Erik, R, 20,964 words]
In which you'll find chess dates that aren't dates (or maybe Charles is wrong about that). – This follows First Class, but turns AU during the beach scene.

Not Half As Blinding by [archiveofourown.org profile] keire_ke [Charles/Erik, PG-13, 29,547 words]
Cuban Beach AU. Charles discovers that death does, in fact, solve everything.

Charles woke in a different bed, in a different room. He knew instantly it was different, because Erik was close by.

First Impressions by [archiveofourown.org profile] sirona [Erik/Charles, Hank/Raven, Teen, 26,712 words]
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a spouse -- or the nearest set of curtains to hide behind, if you were to believe Mr Charles Xavier. Little does he know that he himself will soon put test to that very truth.

What Not To Expect When You're Not Expecting It by [livejournal.com profile] thehoyden [Erik/Charles, Explicit, 9,659 words]
“I wasn’t hiding it from you. Honestly, I didn’t know for certain until yesterday, which I think we can agree was bad timing and not the sort of thing one springs before the heat of battle,” Charles says earnestly. This is the best kind of crack go read it.

Superman

Listen.. people be asking me all the time, "Yo Mos, what's gettin' ready to happen with Hip-Hop?"

I tell em, "You know what's gonna happen with Hip-Hop? Whatever's happening with us"

If we smoked out, Hip-Hop is gonna be smoked out. If we doing alright, Hip-Hop is gonna be doing alright.

People talk about Hip-Hop like it's some giant livin' in the hillside comin' down to visit the townspeople.

We ARE Hip-Hop. Me, you, everybody, we are Hip-Hop. So Hip-Hop is going where we going.

So the next time you ask yourself where Hip-Hop is going, ask yourself, "Where am I going? How am I doing?"

'Til you get a clear idea. So.. if Hip-Hop is about the people and the Hip-Hop won't get better until the people get better, then how do people get better? Well, from my understanding people get better when they start to understand that, they are valuable...
