    Summary

    Nimueh told him to make a sword, so he made a sword, all right? Though that’s strong words for stealing a sword from a nearby smithy and asking Kilgharrah to breathe fire on it. And then Camelot was sacked and the Pendragon line ended and he’d had to hide the sword away and – well Merlin really didn’t like to think about the whole thing.

    Time passed, things happened, and Merlin was not at all prepared for a young knight named Arthur to come asking about the blasted sword. He’s a bit of a clot, sure, but there’s something about him. Merlin can’t quite put his finger on it.

    Summary

    “Alexander Hamilton! I’m at your service, sir!”

    Aaron looks at the hand and doesn’t take it. His hands are safely in his pocket, but he’d taken off his gloves, and he is not particularly in the mood to feel the single most consequential juncture of a stranger’s life.

    Alexander is still grinning at him, and the moment is stretching on, and he refuses to put his hand down, and Aaron has about half a second before this staring contest verges beyond the mere impolite and into the territory of heavy, awkward weight and scattered excuses—and before he can think better of it, Aaron takes Alexander’s hand.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    this fic destroyed my soul (for the past two weeks at least). I love it, but it hurts to think about where it stopped. it is definitely on a cliffhanger in the happiness department, but it could possibly be seen as completed if you don't mind unrequited love and a generally unhappy ending (though the author said on their tumblr that they haven't stopped writing it). it hurts. so much. I cried for at least 30 minutes straight while reading one of the chapters. it's been a couple weeks since I read it and I cannot stop thinking about it. I just want aaron and alexander to end up happy. that's it.
    [bookmarked at chapter 35]

     

    it also hit on a couple of my big squicks, namely infidelity and unrequited love, but I read on despite those because this is truly a masterpiece.

    Summary

    The circus has a way of evening people out. Everyone looks the same when the lights center on the stage. The whole audience, just blank shadows, staring in. Everyone looks like nothing.

    Someone like this, though. Someone like him. They’ll throw off that nothing before they get back to whatever pampered bed they crawled out of. Everyone else stays nothing, but, for people like that, it’s just a temporary state.

    Clint doesn’t mean to watch him. It’s just that he keeps catching Clint’s eye.

    This is, possibly, my new favorite fic/series. Do Every Stupid Thing had me laughing hysterically almost constantly, Your Way Up to the Light got me incredibly invested in Natasha, Clint, and Coulson, and Drive the Dark Away had me binge reading because of all the angst. This is definitely going on my yearly reread list.

    Summary

    “Okay, heartbreaker,” he says, “how much to put the tires back on the car?”

    Jason rolls his eyes and gestures at him with the lug wrench. “Why don’t I just beat you up and steal your money? Is this the first time you’ve been to a bad part of town? Don’t show me your wallet, asshole. Come on.”

    The man heaves a heavy, aggrieved sigh and starts pulling out bills. “Five hundred?” He tries. “Six? We can go to an ATM.”

    “You are mugging yourself,” Jason says, oddly impressed. “Holy shit.”

    This was a really fun fic. Mentions of tony/oc's and jason/oc's, but nothing descriptive. Tony is in his early 20's, so there's no mention of iron man.
