    Summary

    (In which Charles realizes too late that he's been invited to his family's annual holiday party and needs a date, Erik is a gun-for-hire who gets clients from Craigslist, and I attempt to bumble my way into a new fandom.)

    Moira slurps another shot while he and Hank recount Charles’ tale of email-related woe—complete with Hank reading selected passages of the message while doing a startlingly good impression of Sharon Xavier—and when they’re done she emits a low whistle. “I don’t know, Charles—sounds like you’re pretty screwed.”

    “Oh, believe me, I’ve never had a tighter grip on my ankles,” Charles says, scrubbing a hand over his face. “But what do I do, Moira? I have to go, and if I show up alone I won’t live it down until Kurt’s rotting in his grave—”

    “Needs to happen sooner rather than later, if you ask me,” Moira mutters.

    Beside Charles, Hank nods his agreement.

    “—and don’t even get me started on Cain, he’ll have a field day with this. In fact, I bet it was him that put the idea in Mother’s head. This is a first world problem at its finest, I know, but if I don’t figure something out I’ll most likely meet my end with a stiletto heel through my eye and shellfish in my pants.”

    Summary

    “Do you believe this though? As if two people could meet over coffee and just fall in love.”

    au idea: two extras have to sit across from each other and pretend to converse at a restaurant on the set of a movie. but the fake conversation turns to real conversation and they are really into each other and the director calls cut because they are distracting from the actual characters who are supposed to be the ones making eyes and looking like they’re falling in love, not a couple of random extras (from tumblr)

    Summary

    “You have never once been careful in your entire life.” Bucky huffs out a laugh. He looks away. “Maybe I’m offended you didn’t think to ask me.” He says it like a joke, but he can’t bring himself to laugh again.

    “Bucky,” Steve says, scandalized. “You’re my friend. I’m not gonna use you to experiment sexually.”

    Summary

    Need a date for Thanksgiving? Mad at your dad? I am a 28-year-old felon with no high school degree, and a dirty old van one year younger than me covered in graffiti. I can play anywhere between the ages of 25 and 35 depending on if I shave. I’m a line cook and work late nights at a bar. If you’d like to have me as your strictly platonic date for Thanksgiving, but have me pretend to be in a very long or serious relationship with you, to torment your family, I’m game.

    Korra is having a fantastic time at an anime convention when she hears someone shout out her cosplay.

    The moment she turned to find that voice, everything changed.

    This is Modern AU, no bending Slice of Life fic. It will be a very slow burn but I hope you'll stick around for the ride!

    Summary

    Now Bucky knows he isn't a saint, not by far.

    But he figures he's a good enough guy. He pays his rent on time, doesn't play his guitar too late, and hell, even smiles at the old ladies he passes on his morning run. So he really doesn't understand why God, or whoever the fuck is up there lookin out for him, has chosen to abandon him in this, his time of greatest trial. Because Bucky is standing smack dab in the middle of Tony Stark's black tie Christmas mixer, sporting his Grandma Barnes' hand-knitted, navy blue, snowmen-clad, extremely hideous Christmas jumper. And he's starting to get looks.

    Summary

    Tony is a King with a surprising number of people out to kill him. Steve and the rest of the Avengers are fighting for Pierce's rebellion and end up with Tony as their prisoner. Oops.

    Basically one of those bodice-ripping romance novels I don't read (ahem) but with far more gay.

    Updated with gorgeous fanart by superfizz in Chapters 25 & 26. Amazing art by Stitchy in Chapter 27.
