I'd Like It If Someone Stayed - coldfiredragon - The Magicians (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
The first lecture of his Hungarian descriptive grammar class started with the chair still empty, and the pile of syllabi was being passed around when the door swung open again. The guy that slipped in was handsome and tall, with dark wavy hair that was neatly styled and a presence that seemed to command the whole room's attention. The smile he gave their professor was easy and apologetic as he walked past her desk to take the empty seat beside him.

A Hedge witch AU where Quentin meets Eliot on the first day of a shared class at Columbia university.

Holiday Spending - tisfan - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
anonymous asked:

Winteriron collage au w/fake relationship; Tony asks Bucky to be his fake boyfriend, either to shake off some matchmaking friends or to piss off Howard. Turns out Bucky is all Tony ever wanted in a boyfriend. Too bad it's not real (extra angst if Tony paid for Bucky to act as his boyfriend, now Tony wonders if it was all for the money). Happy ending?

Note: This fic gets dark after some fluff; happy ending promised, but that's not what you're getting right now.

When Bucky Barnes comes back to Steve Rogers healthy and going through his recovery nicely, he never expected to find Steve in a relationship with Tony Stark. But he's not going to be the one to ever get between Steve and whoever makes him happy, and if that person is Tony Stark, then so be it.

If there isn't a place for Bucky between Steve and Tony, there's nothing he can do.

Although... maybe there is a place for him after all.

Pretty much everything had gone to hell after the accident, really. Life had been good beforehand. His dad had been distant, sure, but his mother had been a warm light to wipe that all away. At least Howard had been supportive, in his own way. He hadn’t liked that Tony wanted to be a dancer, but he’d made damn sure Tony would be the absolute best once he figured out there was no persuading the young genius otherwise. He’d even been at that performance; the last one Tony had ever done. It was hard to keep dancing after a spinal injury, after all.

Steve scrubbed a hand over his face and through his hair before speaking, “Even if we can get Tony on board, it’s not gonna be easy Buck.”

Bucky gave a familiar, relaxed shrug, “defending your aggressive, skinny ass in every back alley in Brooklyn wasn’t easy either, but it was worth it.”

The thing is - castlesbuiltintheair - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Falling in love can be hard enough to deal with on its own. Falling in love when you are a recently-reintegrated superhero, who spent the past 70 years as a brainwashed HYDRA assassin, is a bit tricky. It gets trickier when the person you're in love with is a genius, billionaire, philanthropist, superhero. It's just messy when said person is Captain America's boyfriend.

But Bucky's handling things fine. He's fine.

Love of Ours - emeraldine087 - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Tony Stark REALLY hates magic with a passion. He knows it's got something to do with how his memories aren't quite as he remembers them. He knows Steve screwed him over and sent him that shitty apology with an even shittier phone. And he is pissed supposedly with no end in sight and no resolution to be had. And yet, he also has this other set of memories - One where he is madly in love with Steve...

Steve Rogers REALLY feels like things with Tony could've gone a lot better. So he stubbornly stays in the Avengers compound to try to set things to rights, vowing to repair his Avengers family and his friendship with Tony. And yet, his endgame is still to help Bucky get rid of the Winter Soldier programming - Help his first and the one true love of his life to find himself again...

Bucky Barnes REALLY loathes having to rely on others to tell him about his life. Steve is a big help, but sometimes, Bucky feels like Steve's after helping him for the benefit of the person he used to be rather than the person he is. Unlike Steve, Tony doesn't give a shit about him. And yet, it's with Tony that he feels like he can be or do anything - Like fall in love with the man he had orphaned all those years ago...

SHORT SUMMARY OF THE STORY: Tony Loves Steve. Steve Loves Bucky. Bucky Loves Tony. It's a shitty situation all around. And there's fluff (of course, there's gonna be fluff, I mean, look who you're talking to!!!) But the endgame is a three-way polyamory relationship. Because these three need each other, really.

Tony Stark is not popular.

He was eccentric and a nerd and he liked it that way. He could invent and cause explosions and rock out to ACDC in peace. He had two awesome best friends for whenever he got lonely, anyway. But all of the aforementioned peace gets shot to hell when two of, if not the most popular guys in school start...fighting for his attention?

Maybe they can reach a compromise...

Cue madness, Tony thinking it's all a joke, Bucky and Steve being ridiculous, everyone else being done with their shit, and smut.

She knows Steve understands her implications, watches as he squirms across from her in his seat. “So? You like him, too,” he shoots back, and it’s less of an accusation than a statement.

“It’s not like that,” she denies instantly, her default response that Steve waves off just as quickly.

“No, it’s totally ‘like that,’” he says, pointing his spoon at her and smirking now.

For a man capable of disappearing so utterly that even the international intelligence community thought he was a myth, it didn't take them long to find the Winter Soldier.

For a man who supposedly wanted to be found, the Winter Soldier fought like a wildcat when Steve and Sam finally cornered him.

One more question - needmesomepie - The Flash (TV 2014) [Archive of Our Own]
Barry Allen. Everyone knew him, or knew of him, whether they were aware of it or not. To the world he was The Flash, to Central City, he was a CSI for the CCPD. And he was good at his job, no matter how much a certain lab partner would try to convince you otherwise. Julian Albert, who, through no fault of his own, didn't quite see Barry the same way. They tolerated each other, to a certain degree, and they managed to solve cases without each others murder actually becoming one. It was a win win situation really, apart from the whole having to spend the day sharing a lab with a guy you hate thing. But they were good at their jobs. They solved the cases. They kept Central City safe. But as good a CSI as Barry was, there was one case he just couldn't solve.

Why did Julian Albert hate Barry Allen so much?

Or in other words, the story of how one innocent question changed both of their lives for good.

Harry doesn’t mind that so many Slytherins from his year have returned to finish their NEWTs, really he doesn’t. It’s just – do they have to be so friendly? He’s not prejudiced, really he’s not. It’s just – they’ve got to be up to something, right? Unnerved by the attention he’s attracting from everyone – the Slytherins are the least of it, to be fair – and struggling with a raft of changes to Hogwarts itself, Harry wishes he could be happy that one constant remains: Draco Malfoy really fucking hates him.

When he’s hit by an illegal love-spell though, Harry finds he has more to worry about than whether or not Blaise Zabini actually wants to be his friend. For if everyone affected has been blessed – or cursed, by the look on Malfoy’s face – with a magical tattoo revealing the name of their soulmate, what does it mean that Harry’s skin remains completely bare?

If you’re not on time, then I’ll take it as a no.” Leonard had been moving towards the door and when he got there he turned to look back at Barry, his eyes roamed up and down Barry’s body for a moment which made the younger man blush and his heart quicken. “And that would be a shame,” Leonard drawled. Barry nodded and swallowed thickly as his mouth became suddenly dry from the fire in Leonard’s eyes. “I hope to see you tomorrow, Barry,”

There was a tense second where Barry considered just backing up and taking his seat again to drown himself in his coffee before the guy looked back up and responded.
"Len," he said simply and Barry's grin turned a little less nervous.

Only someone with Tony as a best friend, Rhodey thinks, fondly resigned, would find themselves unexpectedly appreciating the shirtlessness of one of the world’s most skilled and feared former assassins.
The one where Rhodey meets his crush, Tony fails at being subtle, and Steve is a little shit, but things turn out all right anyway.

Failure to Catch on (and Other Tests of Patience):
Rhodey doesn’t expect anything to come out of his, frankly, absolutely spectacular night with Bucky. He’s no stranger to the concept of one-night stands, has—due to his demanding career—prefered casual relationships with no strings attached himself for most of his adult life, so he’s admittedly surprised when Bucky texts him a couple of days after their encounter. Surprised, but not averse to an eventual repeat performance.
Or; five times Rhodey is completely oblivious to how serious Bucky is about them, and the one time the second most emotionally stunted person in Avengers Tower talks some sense into him.

Show Me How To Live:
The world has moved on since Captain America went into the ice, Steve had been told by his handler at SHIELD, an agent he knows only as Sitwell. Genetic modification of humans is very much forbidden by international law, and with the country already embroiled in war, Captain America has to remain hidden.
It’s 2005 and Steve is back at art school, this time in Boston. At an event that involves melting metal, he sees a pair of familiar eyes. As they get to know each other, Steve and Tony also learn the truth behind the lies they have been told.

Show Me How To Live - One-Shots:
A series of scenes that fall within the Show Me How To Live 'verse but aren't directly part of the story. These may make sense if you haven't read the rest, which you should anyway. You know you want to.

To Sacrifice (But Knowing to Survive):
Planning a wedding is hard work, especially if you are busy hunting down the guy who killed your fiancé’s parents, an assassin known as the Winter Soldier, and also your fiancé might be dying.

"In a past life," the guy at the end of the bar began, "I lived in Kansas. Was a hunter. Hunted things. Hunted things." He stared into his glass, swirling the liquid.

Castiel sighed inwardly. The morose drunks were always the hardest to gauge. Some wanted sympathy; some wanted to get angry; some wanted to be cheered up. Some just wanted to talk.

This guy wasn't sloppy-drunk, at least. Didn't seem particularly drunk at all, really, though in general hitting the whiskey at 6:30 on a Tuesday afternoon wasn't a good sign.

And anyway, Cas was perfectly willing to admit, if he had to play bartender-therapist, it's nice when his patron-patient's disgustingly attractive.

Stiles expected after that first, dramatic, ‘thank God we’re all alive’ kiss that Derek might genuinely care about him. However, he never expected for what he hoped to be a potential ‘I like you, you like me, let’s have hot, steamy celebration sex when we don’t die!’ relationship to somehow turn into a ‘Derek Hale is a secret romantic, who knew?’ real-life relationship.


Basically 5 times Derek is secretly a romantic and 1 time Stiles totally expected what was coming.

After Dark - ann2who, morphia - The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Steve and Tony meet after dark and everything changes.

Evening Comfort:
A night out to try and forget the fight with Ultron leads both Steve and Tony to a random gay bar in Brooklyn. Talking to a stranger is always easier than addressing what had happened, so the two men decide to pretend they don’t know each other. Their rocky friendship turns into something else entirely… and this one conversation might just change everything.

Late Night Surprises:
It had seemed fairly simple, at first. Or so Steve and Tony thought. Meet up at a gay bar, hook up out of sheer shock, and then agree to see where it would go, later. A real date would've been a good start, if setting one up hadn't turned out to be an impossible task. Fed up with waiting, Tony decides to take a more direct approach to let Steve know exactly how much he missed him...

Small Hours Blues:
Steve and Tony finally get to their date, and immediately find themselves in a curious predicament. Who’s to blame? Steve? Tony? Who cares? Revelations are reached. Confessions are made. And at the end of the night, the small hours darkness might’ve just been the best thing that’d ever happened to them.

Say When - ann2who - Captain America (Movies), Iron Man (Movies), Marvel (Comics), Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Say When:
** Iron Man 2 AU ⎪Undercover AU **
What if Steve was unfrozen early? What if instead of Natasha, Steve got assigned to help Tony while the genius was slowly dying of palladium poisoning? What if he never revealed his identity to him until the very moment the Avengers first came together, forming a team?

Say the Word:
** Post-Avengers⎪Natasha POV **
The idea of the Avengers as a long-term thing still felt strange to her. Natasha was sure that none of them had ever entertained the illusion of making friends on the way. And now here she was, in Stark Tower of all places, because Steve wanted her here. Because Stark—however that had happened—wanted her here. She kept waiting to find a catch in all of this, and somehow, it never happened.

And I will Be Your Man:
** Iron Man 3 AU **
After completing his undercover mission and earning Tony’s forgiveness, Steve’s life has become wonderfully peaceful. The Avengers had officially taken up their residence in New York, and—Tony’s nightmares, and occasional precarious missions aside—life was good. He was in love, and he’d never been happier. That was, until some terrorist decided to go ahead and destroy everything he’d ever fought for.

Hold My Hand:
** Cap 2 AU **
Book 3 of the Say When series. An alternate version of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In the months following the defeat of the Mandarin, Steve decides to temporarily move back to Washington in order to help SHIELD train the new STRIKE teams. A long-distance relationship is harder than Steve ever thought it would be, and so he resumes life the only way he knows how: fighting the bad guys, following orders. It’s only a matter of time before his past catches up with him, and brings about a man he thought he'd lost forever…

Keep On Wanting:
After unleashing Ultron onto the world, Tony is haunted by the terrible vision of his future: The Avengers. Steve. Dead. All because of him. And when things just can’t get any worse, Tony has to make a decision: How much is he willing to sacrifice for his friends? For Steve? How much is he willing to give up? As the end of the world is coming nearer, Tony and Steve have to embark on a path less traveled together. Can their love be saved, or will all those secrets slowly rip the two apart?

Take It All Away:
Steve and Tony love each other—that would undoubtedly always be true. However, there might just be things that don’t care for love, that don’t care what it means for the two to take different sides. Things that none of them could’ve foreseen. Things that might just rip everything apart.
When the United Nations attempt to put restrictions on the Avengers, Tony has to admit that the pawns had been in place for a long time, he just hadn’t dared to admit it to himself. And now, it is simply a matter of who will move first—and more importantly: in which direction.

It's a new world and a new century, and Steve's still not entirely used to being an alpha. Throw in a developing relationship with Tony (who seems to have replaced the sun at some point, because Steve's world is busy revolving around him), the murky world of alpha dynamics, beta Bruce's problems with alpha Hulk, and Clint's inability to stay out of trouble no matter what his dear mate tries, and he won't have time to worry much about his beta past.

(Natasha seems awfully amused at the whole mess. Steve is not going to tell her she can't laugh. His anatomy has been rearranged often enough)

Billy leaned forward a little, watching as Teddy found a felt-tipped pen and began searching for a slip of paper. The napkins were all balled up and messy; the placemats were splattered with gravy. "Erm," Billy said, half afraid Teddy would change his mind.

"Here," Teddy finally said, turning toward him. He caught Billy's hand between his own and turned it over, palm-up, his fingers calloused and warm against Billy's smooth skin. He smelled like…like something amazing.

Oh, oh, wow, Billy thought dazedly, squeezing his knees together against the liquid rush of heat low in his belly; the glide of the pen against his palm was the most arousing thing he'd ever felt. The sight of Teddy's golden hair falling into his face made him want to do something incredibly stupid, like lean forward and kiss him, or throw his arms around his neck, or… Or something. Anything.
