    Summary

    Tony has come to enjoy a drink after a fight. The fact that Loki, Avenger on retainer, shares this habit means nothing. Clad in torn leather garments, Loki doesn’t look like a work of art as he pours the scotch into a glass, and Tony certainly doesn’t feel his pants grow tight when the god proceeds to mix its content with a finger, sending his thoughts spiraling down the gutter. A shared habit means nothing.

    Green eyes lock with his. “Is there something on your mind, Stark?”

    Summary

    Going to college was the worst idea Billie Joe Armstrong's parents could think of. The only benefit it gives him is that he unexpectedly meets childhood friend Mike Dirnt on the way, but it doesn't seem to do him any good. Class is a mess and students are crude and obnoxious, and it only gets worse as Mike gets a girlfriend, his companionship with Billie lowering. It seems that there is no hope - well, that is until German exchange student Tré Cool steps into an art room one day, and everything changes, for better and the worse.

    Summary

    You're an extremely talented squad leader in the Scouting Legion, some even saying that you might match Levi in his mastery of the 3DMG. Yet, despite your best efforts, you've lost many close friends and comrades. With Eren's emergence as a titan, you're both confused and hopeful, for once believing that you might survive this war of attrition. However, the continued losses and deaths chip away at your fading optimism and hope in a future for humans. Yet, unwilling to give up on that hope, you find comfort in the form of the least comforting person you know.

    Follows a part of the progression of the manga/anime, so there will be spoilers! I'm not quite sure how much of the plot progression I'll include, so to be safe if you haven't watched to the end of the first season of Attack on Titan (the anime)/up to chapter 51 of the manga, there will be spoilers!

    Summary

    In Cady's mind, Jacob Nighthorse's name had always been just a cypher for unspecified dangers: Here Be Dragons. Now that she's working for him to provide legal representation on the rez, she realizes that at least some of his motives are noble. He's a three-dimensional person to her, but is she seeing the whole picture? Or are there always hidden corners, shadows, blind spots? Aren't these the very things that make us human?

    Summary

    'He resolves not to look back, but even then, Cas can feel Dean’s eyes where they follow his course. He can feel a peaking curiosity in the eyes that stay focused on his retreating form, and the attention is standing the hairs at the back of his neck. Castiel is aware of everything, every person and noise and breath, every sound in the large space, but it’s only Dean’s reactions he holds onto, only his that matter. The buzz of the room narrows down into a muted drone, and things seem blurry, much like submerging his head beneath water.'

    Or, the one where Cas learns piano, and one drunken night in Paris somehow ends up leading to a definite unexpected conclusion - perhaps, even, a resolution great enough to stick.

     

    Canon-verse, but divergent from season 12. No Mary, and no real resemblance to s12's plot progression.

    Summary

    Когда Валентин был остановлен, и члены Круга предстали перед Судом, жители Нижнего мира потребовали справедливости, хотя бы частичной.
    Разозлённые члены Конклава не были против: желание наказать отступников туманило разум. Для членов Круга это почти стало приговором, вердикт был суров: дети членов Круга должны были поступить в услужение кому-то из нежити на год.
    Магнус Бейн, выбирая, не колебался: щенок Маризы Лайтвуд не должен был достаться никому иному.

    Summary

    The Sole Survivor of vault 111, the Good General of the Minutemen, is a woman from the past with a vision for the future. With the Institute gone and the Minutemen growing every day, the Commonwealth is relatively safe and peaceful. The only real fear left for the General is what her relationship with the ghoul Mayor of Goodneighbor will develop into once he finds out about her feelings, and her asexuality. And can he handle it?
    That is, until the Brotherhood of Steel, who have outstayed their welcome, threaten the peaceful balance and the General has to decide how to proceed to protect her people and her friends, without risking a devastating war that could very well end the world a second time.

    Was meant to be a oneshot about AceSole and Hancock figuring out where they stand with eachother, but I want to do more. More tags are added as new chapters are posted.

    Summary

    "...Why, my dear husband...I am glad to think that in your eyes, I am a woman of more beauty than a goddess. But I pray tell, which goddess might you mean? Lovely Aphrodite?" Emilia flashed a coy smile into the looking glass and silently praised herself, in pleasurable guilt, for the alluring tones she had managed to achieve in her voice. "Ay, you flatter me much."

    The story of Othello and Desdemona is one of passion burning too strong-- of idle thoughts twisting into suspicions wild and imaginations raging with jealousy and fervent desire to be taken at one's chaste word. The story of Emilia and Iago is a quieter tale, of sinister machinations and a shared madness that sinks its thorny claws in deep and drags hapless souls together into a mire that is either love, or insanity, or hatred...or everything of nothing first created.

    Summary

    And as much as he hated to admit it, maybe Hatano had a point about him being obsessed. It wasn’t like they were lovers, or that they ever would have become so. The two of them had just spent a night together, and left it on the hanging implication that maybe it would happen again when they reunited.

    Summary

    Viktor is having the worst day of his life. He overslept and is late for work. To make things even better, he rear ended the car in front of him. His attitude quickly changes when he lays eyes on the other driver.

     

    “I'm so sorry!” the other driver said when he reached Viktor. He held a hand up to him, silently asking him to wait. The receptionist finally answered the phone and directed his call to his boss. Once he informed her he'd be late and no, he didn't know what time he'd be in, he hung up and turned his attention to the man.

     

    Well, well, what do we have here?

     

    The man was shorter than him by a few inches. He had jet black hair that was slicked back with a bit of gel. His glasses left something to be desired, but Viktor admired those large chocolate brown eyes. His lightly tanned skin was unblemished and looked so soft. Viktor wanted to run his hand along the man's cheek. The man's body looked enticing as well, but it was hard to tell from the overcoat he was wearing.

    Simply put, he was fucking gorgeous.
