Humans fic recs

So I dipped my toe in the Humans fic over at AO3. And just dipped. I didn't want to read anything that wasn't complete, which frankly didn't leave a whole lot.

But I did find a few fics that really hit home. I would say if you're not caught up, don't read the first one. That would probably be too spoilery. But the others should be okay.

“You miss her,” Mattie said.

Mia’s smile was radiant through the fog of Leo’s memories, gentle and brimming with kindness as she bandaged a boyhood wound. Her carefully parted hair fell across her face and obscured her features for a moment before she tucked the strand back absentmindedly.

“I do,” Laura said. She missed them all.

They had buzzed with energy, with purpose. Even if driven by the most basic of instincts – survival – at least there was intention behind everything they did. It had been a long time since she had operated in any setting other than compliant.

My notes: This type of character study is exactly why I'm so fascinated by Humans. Because I can totally see Laura identifying with the damaged Leo.

Arthur never reincarnated after he died, and Merlin gave up all hope of seeing his King again. But his current incarnation, Leo, might be able to do something about it, thanks to some coding, a kidnapped domestic appliance, and just a little bit of magic

Merlin/Humans crossover

My notes: Of course, there had to be a crossover reincarnation fic. Merthur isn't even my favorite ship and I adore this.
