Fic: The Bond [kirk/spock, star trek: aos]
He slips in love with Spock inconspicuously, during an uneventful afternoon, on an unnamed planet destined to become little more than a Greek letter and a Roman numeral on Starfleet’s chart of the Beta Cygni system.

Fic: The Pen is Mightier [mobei-jun/qinghua, the scum villain's self-saving system]
The thought had been niggling at the back of his mind quite a bit lately. He wasn’t showing Shang Qinghua proper obeisance, was he? They’d grown so comfortable in their roles - Mobei-Jun as Shang Qinghua’s king, and Shang Qinghua as his dutiful servant - that they hadn’t thought to… stop. It was how it had always been. But things were different, now, weren’t they? They’d been different for a long time now. To ignore that wasn’t proper.

That stops now, Mobei-Jun decides. His ancestors would be rolling in their graves to see him ignore the proper rites of courtship - the fact that he and Shang Qinghua were already mated besides. He was not raised to be some kind of country rube, as much as being sequestered so far up north might imply otherwise. Shang Qinghua was his partner, and, with all factors properly calculated, the more powerful of the two. It was only proper that Mobei-Jun display an appropriate level of submission to his better.


Mobei-Jun realizes with increasing clarity that he wants to serve Shang Qinghua. Shang Qinghua does NOT pick up on it.

"Yes, exactly. Retire." Aziraphale reaches for the last remaining tartlet brimming with summer berries. "Somewhere along the south coast, perhaps."

Or: Crowley and Aziraphale learn to move in tandem.

Fic: The Power of Suggestion [lewis/hathaway, lewis]
“How about you?” Paul asked. “How long has it been?”

Robbie stared at him for a moment as he tried to suss out what Paul was asking. Just as it was starting to dawn on him, he felt a hand cup his shoulder. He looked up and met Hathaway's eyes.

“Six years now, isn't it?” James said, gaze so intent that Robbie got the message immediately.

Robbie blinked. “Erm.” He turned back to Paul. “Yeah, about that.”

“Good for you,” Paul said. “I could tell right off you were well suited.”

“Thanks,” Robbie said weakly.

Fic: Occupational Hazards [draco/ron, harry potter]
At noon Ron takes his lunch break, eating the tuna salad sandwich he brought from home at his office desk and listening to Broom Talk on his portable wireless. His 1:30 appointment is a no show which means he may have to send a howler later but overall he’s quite relaxed and caught up on the day’s paperwork when Draco Malfoy walks through the door.

“Malfoy?” Ron says dumbly.

“Obviously,” Draco replies.

He looks almost the same as when they were in school, if Ron’s honest, except that his hair is a little bit longer and Ron thinks he looks more relaxed than he’d ever been in school, most of the tension he used to carry gone completely. He’s dressed in jeans and a slubby gray jumper that Ron thinks the Malfoy he knew would probably not be caught dead wearing.

Fic: A Royal Christmas Engagement [derek/stiles, teen wolf au]
The thing is, the whole misunderstanding is arguably Stiles’s fault. Showing up to the Hale’s winter castle—a mammoth, stone-faced manor home, really—unannounced, almost two weeks early, well before the holiday festivities are set to start, hopping out of the back of a common yellow taxi in an old hoodie and jeans.

Fic: Alternative pipe-cleaning methods [eddie/venom, venom]
Eddie? they demand. Eddie!

Eddie drags his attention away from the story he’s working on. “What is it, bud?”

Are you going into heat?

“What?” Eddie makes his confused face. “No!”

Or planning to breed?

Eddie’s forehead ruts get even deeper. “Where the hell is this coming from?”

You are making too many of your breeding worms.

Eddie goes tense all over. “Breeding worms?” he says, shrilly enough to make Venom flinch.

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: Bed-warm Hands and the Ghost of Elvis [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
They get used to sharing a bed while filming the show. Ryan's just trying not to let his feelings get in the way.

So Ryan tells himself he’s going to ride out whatever it is they’ve fallen into, but he’ll bow out gracefully when the time comes. He can just enjoy the now.

Fic: I’ve Kissed You Before, but I Didn’t Do It Right (Can I Try Again) [ryan/shane, buzzfeed unsolved]
Ryan grabs for Shane’s banana and takes a bite out of it. In his head it was supposed to be sexy, but he realizes as he’s chewing that it might hit a little close to home. Shane must be remembering the same thing, because he blanches and looks away.

“Sorry, too soon?”

“I’m having a Pavlovian response to the flash of your teeth around a phallic object,” Shane says, “and now my balls are trying to crawl back inside my body. Something tells me that’s not what you were going for.”

“No,” Ryan agrees, still chewing.


After months of mooning around each other, forces (read: alcohol, nerves, gravity, tender feelings) conspire to ruin Ryan and Shane’s first night together. With a little help from their friends, dramatic training montages set to 80’s rock anthems, and the early filmography of Harrison Ford, can our heroes get things back on track?

Fic: Sweet Buns [derek/stiles, teen wolf au]
Stiles hasn’t seen Derek Hale this close up for over a decade. He looks almost exactly the same, except somehow he seems even bigger and broodier—criminally handsome, with soft-looking dark scruff, heavy brows, light hazel eyes. His gaze zeros in on Stiles almost immediately, and his scowl lightens minutely in what looks like surprise.

Stiles is acutely aware that he has melted butter and cinnamon all over his face, and tries to surreptitiously wipe it with the ends of his sweater-sleeve.
