Fic: Would You Be Mine, Could You Be Mine [merlin/arthur, merlin au]
Merlin does not want to invite the Prime Minister's son onto his show, even if he is an environmental scientist. Arthur does not want to admit that he has a crush on the star of Merlin's Castle, the most popular children's show in the nation.

In which Merlin is Mr. Rogers, there is a bouquet of finger puppets, Freya and Gwaine hooked up years ago and neither of them wants to talk about it, and eventually everything turns out okay.

Fic: A Thousand Miles and Poles Apart [clint/phil, mcu au]
Until a few months ago, Clint Barton was a successful stunt guy, more accustomed to falling off buildings and making a fight look good than worrying about lines and motivation. Now, he's an award nominated actor (it was a fluke, he swears) about to take the biggest role of his career: co-lead in the eleventh Agent Banks of SHIELD movie, working with the actor he's admired (or maybe more than just admired) for years. It should be the best job ever.

Except for a few problems, like his lack of acting experience, and the part where his contract is to take over the SHIELD series after Phil Coulson finishes this last movie. At least he isn't doing anything really disastrous, like falling for his co-star. Right?

Fic: Alterations [merlin/arthur, merlin au]

Fic: 76th & lexington [mike/harvey, suits au]
“I think that kid pissed himself,” comes a voice from behind him, unimpressed but amused.

“And now that issue of Aquaman is worth even less,” Harvey says, and the blond laughs outright. Some idle, stupid part of Harvey’s mind characterizes it as a nice laugh, like that means something. Like that’s something he’d think. Because he wouldn’t.

“So,” Harvey says. “Should I be checking your pants, too?”

Fic: Performance In a Leading Role [john/sherlock, sherlock bbc au]
Sherlock Holmes is an Oscar winner in the midst of a career slump. John Watson is an Everyman actor trapped in the rom-com ghetto. When they are cast as a gay couple in a new independent drama, will they surprise each other? Will their on-screen romance make its way into the real world?

Fic: The Fourth Estate [elizabeth/darcy, pride and prejudice au]
Of course, in a darkened parking lot on a Sunday night, no one was thinking about the Oscars, Charles Bingley, or box office records.

Will Darcy was considering whether to take Laurel Canyon Drive or Coldwater Canyon Drive to get home.

Elizabeth Bennet was contemplating something Charlotte had told her about a new research project.

The valets were wondering how much the owners of each car would tip them.

And North Hollywood resident Teresa Avila was trying to snap a photo of Will Darcy with her iPhone as quickly as possible.

Fic: Idol [mckay/sheppard, sga au]
“It’s really okay, though,” he added as Rodney mumbled something about Yale Law! Harvard School of Business! “I mean, I still can’t believe I was even nominated.”

“It is hard to believe that anyone at SAG has any sense,” Rodney admitted. “But John, you know— Your performance—”

“Washed up TV actors don’t win Oscars, Rodney,” John said tightly. “No, it’s okay,” he insisted, as Rodney started sputtering again. “I know I have a good fanbase from Crossing Into Blue, and I know you’ve done a lot to keep them loyal. But the Academy’s a bunch of sixty-year-old men who maybe occasionally used to tune in for Judging Amy. They—” He swallowed. “This was a courtesy nom. ‘Thank you for fifteen years of your life. Now go back to Jersey.’ You know as well as I do that they’re never going to take me seriously.”

Fic: Camelot's Sweethearts [merlin/arthur, merlin]
It turned out that the room he stumbled into was Arthur’s dressing room and the glass of water had been meant for Gregory, his predecessor, but Merlin had not found that out until later. He had berated the man sitting across from him without even looking up, and proceeded to clean up around the broken glass, telling Arthur (and in his defence, he had not known it was Arthur at that point, not that he would have done anything differently if he had known) that if he was going to throw glasses deliberately then he was going to clean up his own mess. / The ensuing argument had lasted a good half an hour, during which time Gaius, the publicist for the studio, had come in and watched in amusement.

Fic The Kingdom of the Blaggers [Merlin/Arthur, merlin/entourage]
It took Merlin four whole months to realize that Arthur was most certainly not coming back to finish his course or apply to the Royal Shakespeare Company or spends days on end chain-smoking in a dingy flat in Clapham with Merlin. Arthur wasn't going to change his mind about Los Angeles as he had about joining the army or those fencing lessons or running the bloody London Marathon.

Fic: Any other word [gabe/william, cobar starship tai au]
[Shakespeare Festival AU] Living with an actor is sometimes weird. Gabe never knows when William will be there, from day to day, and sometimes he eats, sometimes he doesn’t, and sometimes Gabe’s leftovers vanish mysteriously in the two minutes he was using the bathroom without a single other sign that William was ever there. He talks to himself and spends a lot of time looking in the mirror, and occasionally – usually on audition days – there are strange exercises involving a lot of humming sounds and bendy yoga shit.
