Abnegate - camichats - Marvel [Archive of Our Own]
Tony's retiring from Iron Man for his non-superhero husband, Bucky, only it turns out there's a lot of things Tony didn't know about the other Avengers. Like that Bucky is the Winter Soldier, and his best friend Steve is Captain America, and Captain America is in love with Iron Man. It was a rough couple of weeks.

The Man Inside The Armor - Haunted_Frost, camichats - Marvel [Archive of Our Own]
It's obvious that James Rhodes is the one in the Iron Man armor, right? Steve and Bucky want to add Iron Man to their relationship, so instead of asking Iron Man directly they go to James so there's less confusion. Only now they're rejected, and Iron Man's mad at them.

Three times Eliot could have said something, but didn't. And one time he didn't need to say anything at all.

As You Were:
Q tries to distract himself and Eliot tries to understand.

Lay Yourself Bare:

Your Lips Move When You Read - LadySilviana - The Magicians (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
His lips moved when he read. The movement was subtle yet noticeable and something about it made Eliot’s heart skip a beat. Entranced, he could not look away. At times, Quentin would bite his bottom lip in thought; or frown; or smile and laugh a little. His mouth, ever so expressive, would shape softly and silently around a word; stretch through a consonant and wrap around an invisible vowel. These movements weren’t hurried, but rather slow and precise, as though Quentin was drawing the flavour out of every phrase the way a wine connoisseur would taste an exquisite vintage. His mouth was savouring the tale, and Eliot couldn’t help but think of how much he wanted to be told the story.

Julia had never forgotten that it was Eliot who got her off of her couch. Everything was so fucked up afterwards that it got lost somewhere in the aftermath, but it had remained stuck in the back of her mind. It didn’t make them friends, not by a long shot, but they both love Q, and they save the world together sometimes, which had to count for something.

He paced toward the couch and back again, filled to the brim with fight and nowhere to put it. Realising that his hands were shaking, he stopped at the kitchen bench, pressing his hands flat against the surface. He ducked his head, breathing, trying to breathe, trying to find some semblance of calm but he couldn’t move past the Monster’s carelessness with Eliot’s body. The thought of him killing Eliot because he was bored, or frustrated, or just to get a rise out of him sent a panic through him and he was done, he was done tiptoeing around him and trying to avoid setting him off. He wasn’t going to just sit by and watch him – fucking – step out in front of a truck, or overdose for the fun of it, or –


Immediately after Quentin faces down the Monster, he struggles to keep his emotions locked down. Julia sees more than he bargains for.

Life never happened the same way twice, or something like that. Alice sighed and looked at him like she could read his mind, and he didn’t tell her that every time he looked at Eliot he remembered the way that the other man had looked at him on their fifth anniversary in past Fillory, his gaze reverent and warm in the flickering light from the fire, and for the first time since he’d been told magic was real, the shadow in his mind had gone quiet and content, for just long enough that Quentin had felt like he’d gotten a glimpse of the sun.

“Did you see anything?” Eliot finally asks, leaning his head back against the headboard and turning to look at him.

“Huh?” Quentin blinks away memories, returning the look.

“When you touched the key. Other than Penny.” He shrugs a shoulder, “You said it makes you see the truth.”

God, did he see anything?

How does he say, Yeah. You were shimmering gold and ever since all I can do is feel your lips on my skin, and your fingers in my hair. All I can see is you, Eliot. Jesus Christ I was so blind before—

“Not really,” he says instead, swallowing thick. “Just Penny.”

Quentin sits down on the couch and stares at him with wide eyes, until Eliot sighs and looks up at him. “What, Quentin? I’m busy.”

Quentin makes a face because that’s clearly not quite true but shakes his head because this is more important and Eliots the only one who hasn’t lost his god damned mind. “I think everyone’s gone insane,” he nods erratically as if it emphasize the statement.

Eliot sighs again, leaning back on the couch with a roll of his eyes and a wave of his arm in a go on motion, “And how have they gone insane?”

“Well,” Quentin kicks his lips, “Penny pushed me up against a tree this morning -,”

“Sounds pretty par for course, Q.”

“– and kissed me.”

“I don’t think it’s us,” Alice says, gaze barely glancing away from the books stacked in front of her. Her pencil taps along the edges of her paper, eraser dancing along the outline of one of the spells she’s studying.

Quentins brow furrows as he lets his eyes trail from the pencil, up her arm, to land on the curtain of hair she’s using to hide her face from him. “What isn’t us?” He asks. It’s the first thing she’s said in hours, since Eliot and Margo left the library to go do something less boring. Whatever that means.

“Us.” She answers after a moments silence, before looking up and setting the pencil down. “I think Mayakovsky was wrong.”

“About … Us? How?”

“I don’t think we’re in love.”

He definitely noticed you. - newtypeshadow - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Stiles was following the sounds of movement to the only open doorway when the screaming started. The man’s agonized cries were augmented by the sound of breaking bones. Stiles was through the doorway with his wand out before it occurred to him to be afraid, but by then it was too late.

Derek Hale—fifth year, walking wet dream, star quidditch beater, Gryffindor’s most eligible bachelor, and Stiles’s crush since first year—was curled up on the floor and turning into a wolf.

Derek was a werewolf.

Derek was a rampaging monster that killed people on the full moon...and he was looking right at Stiles.

Plus One - Amethystina - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Sometimes, Bucky makes stupid and rash decisions. Telling his friends that he's got a secret fiancé they've never met, well — that's, without a doubt, one of the worst. Because, not only does he manage to convince them that it's true, but they insist that he should bring said fiancé to his little sister's wedding so they'll get to meet him.

The problem being, of course, that Bucky doesn't have a fiancé and the man he has so vividly described to his friends — down to the color of his eyes and brightness of his smile — is just the bartender at his favourite bar. Sure, Bucky is infatuated with the man, but their relationship is definitely not as intimate as he has made everyone believe.

Long story short, Bucky has put himself in a deep mess and, somehow, needs to find a way out of it. And, as ludicrous as it might sound, he knows that his best bet is to simply ask said bartender if he'd be willing to be Bucky's pretend fiancé for a week. Maybe, if Bucky is lucky, Tony will agree to help him.

The Stories We Write - NotEvenCloseToStraight - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
A question at an interview leads to Steve and Bucky discovering fan fiction, and after piles of coffeeshop au's and fake dating tropes (and screaming over ABO fics) they find an author that writes some of the best fics they've ever read-- reader inserts starring a dark haired, dark eyed male reader as their shared love interest.

The platonic fics are heartfelt and sweet, the smutty fics have them tearing their clothes off to act out scenes, the soulmate fics have them crying over the true love that so often ends with the Reader passing away and Stucky being left behind.

Then one day, a fic posts with a scene taken right out of their lives, one that happened right there in the Tower, entirely the same right up until they take the Reader to bed.

Bucky is the one to realize the writer is Tony.

Steve is the one to suggest writing fics of their own to show Tony they return his feelings.

Writing fics to show an author you're in love? What could possibly go wrong?

The Road to Knowhere:
Enhanced humans are not considered legally human; they are the property of the government or the company that created them. The crew of the Avenger consists of enhanced humans who have escaped/run away and are trying to fly under the radar.
Tony Stark was kidnapped and enhanced against his will. No longer considered human, Tony had taken up with a pirate crew to try to bring change to the galaxy.
Obediah Stane has taken over Stark Industries and wants to sell the secrets of Extremis to the highest bidder. The only successful enhancile, Maya Henson, escaped with the functional prototype in her own veins.
Tony and Obie are racing to find Maya. Tony's life just got complicated, however, with the salvage of a Hydra warship and the Asset they find inside.

Nine-Tenths of the Law:
Nick Fury has offered asylum and a temporary home to Tony and Bucky as the galaxy debates and fights over the question of enhancile rights. Of course, nothing is free -- as well-known faces of the enhancile cause, they're more or less obligated to do whatever they can to keep the movement afloat.
When it becomes clear that what the movement needs is a big, showy wedding, they reluctantly agree. But Bucky isn't sure whether Tony's reluctance is because of the spectacle -- or because of him.

Lost in Space:
Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space. -- Hitchhiker's Guide the the Galaxy
The crew of the Avengers is called in to deal with a situation in the New York cluster. Trying to evade Hydra forces, the crew ends up flung to the far end of the galaxy with a pressing question: Where the fuck are we?

On the verge of being thrown out of their home, Bucky receives an offer -- come to Manhattan and marry the Duke. Of course Bucky knows the story, twenty years ago, his father saved the Duke’s life. It seems the Duke has decided to pay the debt by offering marriage and providing for Bucky’s mother and sister.

Is He or Isn't He? - LadySilviana - The Magicians (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Eliot bit his lip, studying the exposed curve of Quentin’s neck where it joined his shoulder, the skin smooth and inviting. Quentin’s hair fell loosely and sensuously back, caressing his shoulders. It was all Eliot could do to keep from ravaging the other’s neck and he had to remind himself that he was taking this slow. Anything too boisterous and he risked sending the other man fleeing to his room. This seduction would be more methodical, more teasing…

...Sensual- a word that until that day Quentin had only read about but never experienced; never really understood; had no frame of reference for. But then Eliot’s fingers had spelled it out for him, had traced it in his skin. Quentin knew then the meaning of that word. From then on that’s what sensual would be to him- Eliot’s hands caressing his body.

Note: I have screwed around with ages, geography and timelines to suit me. You have been warned.

Paved With Good Intentions (I'm on the road to hell) - itsallAvengers - The Avengers (Marvel) - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
When the mysterious group of vigilante assassins known only as 'The Avengers' are tipped off about the dirty secrets that lie within Stark Industries, Steve Rogers has his heart set on taking out Tony Stark for good in order to protect the rest of the world from his evil. He's seen the footage, after all- Stark is a man who fights only for himself. And of course, when a job arises as chief bodyguard for Stark, to protect him from the growing threat of an ominously infatuated stalker, the opportunity is way too good for him to miss out on. It's the perfect placement, and the perfect way to find out whether or not their tipoff is genuine.

But as Steve falls into rank as the new bodyguard for Mr. Stark and he spends time getting to know and protect him, his initial hatred begins to falter and merge into something different, something far more terrifying than the prospect of killing the face of Stark Industries.

Steve Rogers may just be falling in love with him instead.

Put A Ring On It - jadztone - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Sherlock Holmes thought wearing a wedding ring to ward off unwanted attention was a brilliant idea. He hadn’t counted on all the lies he would have to tell to keep up the charade. He pretended his husband was his old friend Victor, then metaphorically packed him off to Iraq to explain his absence. Sherlock only began to regret his fake marriage when very attractive John Watson became his flatmate. John wasn’t thrilled with it either, appalled by his growing feelings for a married man. The truth is revealed in the worst possible way when Victor unexpectedly comes back to town.

AND: Imagine Tony and Bucky being involved in a lab accident that turns them both into teenagers, but Bucky still has his metal arm and now it's way too big for his body, so he finally lets Tony examine it so he can figure out how it works and make one that actually fits Bucky. They end up arguing because Tony wants to add in all kinds of extra features, but Bucky literally just wants an arm. AND: Imagine jealous James :3

Tony swept his gaze over the jacket. It was well used, heavily worn down, but not in a bad way. The fabric felt softened over years of use, and the slight discolorations seemed to suit it. Tony could see the marks left over from the previous owners. A small patch, sewn perfectly in neat little stiches on the inside breast pocket screamed of Steve’s steady hands, while the fraying on tails remained as evidence of Bucky’s impatient tugging.

Or, Steve and Bucky gift Tony with their jacket that survived from the 1940's.

Turns out that wasn't the only thing that survived.

Canon diverged before Jackson found Atlantis. The IOC stepped in and decided to make things more efficient. A gene testing program brought Major John Sheppard into the program earlier, but budget constraints and international treaties have kept Dr. Jackson out of the antarctic. So now John has to find his own team--and his own geek--or he's in danger of being stuck in the mountain forever as a light switch. However, as the universe changes, fate forces some things to return to proper form, and other things... they get wildly out of control. John isn't sure how he came to be Earth's enemy, but he's going to have to deal with the cards he's dealt.

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. Not to mention how all that metal in his chest really limited his lung capacity.

It Takes the Truth to Fool Me - jamestiqueeriuskirk - Avengers Assemble (Cartoon) [Archive of Our Own]
After he recovered from the initial shock of learning Thor was in love with him (didn’t just “come home, brother,” “let me help you, brother,” love him but desired him as well, wanted to throw him down in the middle of battle and ravish him – his own brother – wanted to take him hard and fast on hands and knees— Loki stopped thinking about it and got a glass of ice water, because it was making him a little sweaty) he decided the only thing for it would be to seduce him.

There were a number of reasons this was a good, reasonable, practical – just pragmatic, really – plan: regular proximity would afford him a readymade closer strike point, next time he needed one; the intimacy might inspire Thor to spill valuable Avengers’ secrets that could be all kinds of useful to Loki; it might earn him Thor’s lenience (it was already no challenge to escape Avengers’ custody, but it wouldn’t hurt if Thor went even easier on him. Maybe Thor wouldn’t rearrange Loki’s face so severely next time they tussled if he thought it would hurt his chances of rearranging Loki’s guts later).
