    Summary

    "Pretend for me." The words come from nowhere, suddenly there in Merlin's mouth being spoken before he's even registered their presence in his brain. Harry makes a questioning little noise and Merlin soothes him with another kiss, a long slow press of his lips against Harry's thudding pulse. "Pretend there's been nobody else."

    Harry swears low, shuddering over the fricative of the fuck and tilting his head back down to look at Merlin curiously. "You don't strike me as the jealous type."

    "I'm not, as a rule." His eyes linger: Harry's mouth, the marks left on his neck, the inches of skin being revealed as Harry's hands, long and tanned and lovely, go to work on his own shirt buttons. "Apparently it's only for you."

    Summary

    The Iron Bull, a star on the field, doesn't quite get his roommate. Still, he never expected a prim and proper mage to come home reeking of alcohol and with cheeks puffier than his own.

    This is an alternative, very explicit ending to the otherwise mostly G-rated 'Promise'. http://archiveofourown.org/works/3985618

    Summary

    Dirk Strider was always used to having his life planned out for him, and he was perfectly comfortable with it. He'd make it through his last year of high school, get a football scholarship, and move as far away from his older brother as he could. Just as he was coming to terms with the fact that he would be living out a pre-written life, he comes across Jake English. He was an adventurous brunette with eyes like emeralds and a smile like the sun, who would certainly not be living a pre-written life.
    Throughout the course of one school year, Dirk's world is flipped completely upside down, and he finds all of his morals being completely rewritten. He can't decide which is scarier, the fact that Jake is doing this to him, or the fact that he might want him to.

    Summary

    The year is 1981, and Iron Bull sits in an empty bar telling Lavellan, Leliana and Sera all about the 1970s - specifically his time near the Tevinter border, in a bustling border town called Trevis. He likes to embellish slightly. He also likes to see them squirm when he gets to the filthy parts - though Sera mostly just laughs.

    It's a story of three things: One, how the chargers came together before becoming most imposing collegiate sports teams in Thedas. Two, what it was like for Bull to be out on his own a queer kid in the 70s. Third, how he met Krem, and the long road that led them there.

    The year is 1988 and the city of Charleston teeters perilously on the cusp of something, not by accident; later someone will remark: “they were all just too ahead of the times.” People say the era’s not ready (it’s not), but Alex Hamilton wants to watch their expectations go up in flames - fireworks over the status quo skyline.

    Summary

    Can a mannerless slob and a cosmopolitan socialite sleep with each other and still be friends? Nevermind that, can they even make it to being friends in the first place?
    A “real world”/modern AU with a few THG universe twists. It's not necessary to have seen When Harry Met Sally to read this since it's not really a true crossover, merely "inspired by."

    Summary

    News Clipping; Chicago Times, May 6, 1984

     

    "Following the disappearances of these three stars, the music industry is damaged forever. They will be presumed dead until proven otherwise. The Chicago Music Wax Museum received memorial statues from an unknown artist to be displayed this Saturday..."

     

     

    Okay, Pete didn't mean for this to happen. All he did was try and look at the amulet the wax statue was wearing because it looked like his, and now he has to take care of an 80s jazz star who's been missing, presumed dead, for 32 years, doesn't understand texting and thinks 2009 Toyota Corollas are the best thing since sliced bread.

    But when he and his friends look further, they find out it's not just one person. There's a conspiracy that's been right under their noses the whole time, and now they need to find out who's behind it...(cliche)

    News Clipping; Chicago Times, April 10, 2016

    "Breaking news, music lovers...only ten days before the anniversary of his disappearance, the Patrick Stump statue at the Chicago Music Wax Museum has disappeared..."
