Fic: that first, initial feeling [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved au]
“You’re called the Treasure Chest,” Shane says blankly to the man behind the counter, who is looking at him with a completely neutral expression. His name tag suggests that he is called Ryan. “It’s -- literally every sex shop in the history of sex shops was called The Treasure Chest. I’m pretty sure it’s in the by-laws.”

“The by-laws ... for sex shops?” Ryan asks.

Shane fixes him with a look. He sells crystals, which means he’s a con man, which means he’s a deviant of at least some kind, which means he’s been to a sex shop and he knows exactly what Shane means. “Listen,” Shane says, and then nothing else, because Ryan The Counter Man pulls an arm behind his head to stretch and the sight of his surprisingly beefy arms short-circuits Shane’s brain.

The man blinks patiently at him. “I’m listening,” he says, encouragingly.

OR: An AU in which Ryan runs a crystals store, and Shane is beguiled by him anyway.

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: sugar, we're going down swinging [kane/toews, hockey rpf au]
It's been eight years since Patrick made the hardest decision he's ever had to and left the love of his life; eight years in which he's made sure not to see, hear, or talk about Jonathan Toews, heir to multinational conglomerate, the Toews-Gilbert Group. And even though he's never really gotten over Jonny and the way they broke up, he's settled in his life now; he's an award-winning pastry chef with his own successful bakery, and he's slowly inching his way towards forgetting completely about Jonny.

Then when he least expects it, Jonny walks back into his life - with a fiancé - and asks him to design their wedding cake.

Despite his misgivings and the reopening of old wounds, Patrick can't help thinking that maybe Jonny's reappearance, after all this time, is a chance for him to finally get closure and be friends with Jonny once more.

(But you know what they say about best-laid plans.)

Fic: Of Lemon Drops and Lizard-Cats [merlin/arthur, merlin au]
When Merlin Emrys became a single father he made one simple rule: he wouldn’t date until Aithusa was old enough to understand. Merlin had always had his hands full with his daughter and never had a problem with this rule until Arthur stepped into his life. Then everyone he knew started conspiring against him.

Fic: A Local History [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved au]
Ryan is a real estate agent that specialises in haunted property. Shane's new to town and looking to buy. There's a lot of over thinking, Steven Lim is not impressed with poor communication skills, some mysterious recurring dreams, a beach trip, bed-sharing and the boys getting locked in a room by a ghost. Or the wind. Depending on who you ask.

Fic: Making Space and Time [derek/stiles, teen wolf au]
It’s dark and it’s cold and it’s gray and he kicks off his shoes and he clothes and he curls up on his little bed and he stares up at the sloped ceiling and he breathes, because this is the place he always comes to catch his breath after a long shift, only this time, the air seems to rattle in his lungs, like his chest is empty too.

But he sleeps, a deep, dreamless sleep, and hopes it will be better when he wakes.

In which Stiles is sad and lonely until the day he finds a dog that's just as lost as he is.

Geno has been in Pittsburgh for six months and living in the tiny apartment above his flower shop for two and, so far, Sid is the only friend he’s made.

They’ve never even met.

Fic: Clear Blue Morning [sid/geno, hockey rpf au]
Zhenya is re-looping the hair elastic around Alina's braid when he becomes aware there’s someone standing in the doorway. He glances up, and his hands freeze in place.

Sidney fucking Crosby is standing there, looking hesitant, with a half-empty water bottle dangling from one hand.

Fic: The Final Rose [sid/geno, hockey rpf au]
It’s not unusual for them to be away for months—Sid’s away most of the off season, to start—but this time it’s different. Geno’s spent the last few months dating thirty people. Geno’s probably engaged.

But when Geno comes out of customs, his bags behind him, there’s no difference in his smile when he catches sight of Sid.

He didn’t take no for an answer, not that Sid really pushed the issue, and showed up at Sid’s front door in a pair of tight jeans, a white t-shirt, and a red tool box in his hand looking like every single pornographic fantasy Sid has ever had. “There,” Geno says as he puts down the wrench. “Can you turn on faucet?”

Fic: Sillage [sid/geno, hockey rpf au]
The most comfortable position on the couch is with his back pressed into the corner with one leg stretched out on the cushions and the other resting on the coffee table.

He’s just settled in and has his fingers poised over the keyboard when he hears three distinct footsteps coming from upstairs.

He ignores it and a few seconds later hears three more, quicker this time, and followed by the sound of a door shutting.

There’s someone in his house.

Eames is certain that they will excel at being celebrity judges.

Arthur is not so sure.

But then, that's usually how their relationship goes.

Fic: Fixer-Upper [arthur/eames, inception au]
Eames’s eyebrows are arched. He looks…amused and indulgent. Arthur hates him passionately. “Help find me a house. I was under the impression that’s what you do. But maybe I’ve been misunderstanding. What’s your role on this show of ours again?”

“No, I—I mean, I know what it is I do.”

“Good, glad we’ve established that,” says Eames gravely.

Arthur grits his teeth and forges forward. “Why do you want me to find you a house?”

Eames looks genuinely confused at that. “Because I’m house-hunting, and you’re the best at house-hunting, so why wouldn’t I want you?”

Eames says it so much on the show that’s a catchphrase. It’s a fucking meme. Arthur’s the best but… and then annoying Internet people fill in any number of endings to that sentence: he smells like goats, he double-dips, he hates kittens. But Eames says it now with no but.
