Fic: The Joy of Little Things [bucky/steve, captain america au]
"Do you want me to eat you?"

“No, but—” Steve broke off his instinctive response. All his life, he’d believed in doing what was right… he was not about to stop now. Wincing at the prickling pain in his feet, he straightened up to his full height. “Yes. If it means you’ll leave this place.”

"But you don’t look very filling." The tip of the dragon’s tail twitched. "I don’t suppose you’re a virgin?" he asked hopefully. "I’ve heard they taste better."

Steve gritted his teeth and refused to answer. The dragon could very well find that out for himself. He stared at the dragon. The dragon stared back. Then the dragon got up, turned around, and went back into his cave.

"Well? Come on, tribute."


or, how Steve ends up working for a dragon with a very odd sense of humor

Fic: Nesting Instincts [sid/geno, hockey rpf au]
A dragon's life is all about instincts: having them, and controlling them. Unfortunately, faced with the creations of half-troll Geno Malkin, Sid finds it harder than usual to maintain that control.

... Look, he didn't mean to start stealing Geno's things!

Fic: Dragon Attack [mcclane/farrell, die hard au]
No. No way. Dragons? Dragons only exist in folklore and a couple of supremely cool video games, and ol' AC has clearly hit his head if he thinks that mythical beings have somehow decimated Times Square.

Fic: We Fit So Neatly [derek/stiles, teen wolf au]
When Stiles is thirteen years old, he falls in love.

She’s over ten feet tall, with gray-green leathery skin and a plump, yellow belly, bright purple eyes and an ungainly wingspan that makes her topple when she spreads them open too wide.

In the time it takes for the dragon to bury her too-warm muzzle in the palm of his hand, Stiles knows he wants to spend the rest of his life with her.

Her handler is gruff, dark-haired, wide-shouldered, and scowling down at him. He’s got a burn scar running down the outside of one forearm, and the flight vest open at his throat reveals an angry red claw mark on his collarbone.

Stiles maybe falls a little bit in love with him, too.

Fic: Irregular [harold/john, poi au]
“Really,” said a fussy voice behind John. “This is highly irregular.”

John turned, a faint spark of surprise actually filtering through his fatigue. Filthy and thin as his mortal shell was now, he should still be invisible to humans if he wanted to be - and the shorter, stocky middle-aged human with as fussy a face as his voice looked and felt human. He was impeccably if unassumingly dressed, in a three piece dove gray suit and a pale blue tie, knotted under a shirt collar pressed to razor edges. Wire-rimmed spectacles perched high over the bridge of his nose, behind which sharp, pale blue eyes regarded John with disapproval. Had John run into him on a street, he would’ve walked by without a second glance.

Fic: The Purity Myth [kane/toews, hockey rpf au]
Ask anyone—Patrick Kane had a problem with authority figures. And big guys. Also loud guys and rude guys. Pretty much all guys.

Ask Patrick himself and he’d say, “They’ve got a problem with me.”

The truth was a bit more complicated.

Fic: Winging It [steve/danny, hawaii five-0/pern au]
My name is Faroeth, the dragon said, and abruptly Danny realized, it wasn’t an ‘it’, it was a she. She was a she. Faroeth reached Danny’s feet and plastered herself to his side, looking up at him with a plaintive expression. Don’t you want me?

Looking into her eyes, Danny experienced the same sinking feeling he did every time Grace came asking him for something he really shouldn’t give her. How could he say no? He was in a lot of trouble. He couldn’t be a dragonrider.

Yes you can, said Faroeth. You have me, so now you can be a rider.

Danny was so, so, screwed.

Fic: Able to Fly [mckay/sheppard, sga au]
"You're a ghost," Rodney said, pointing. The boy shrugged and dripped. "Did you drown?" Rodney asked. The boy nodded and Rodney felt his eyes widen: he'd never met anyone dead before. "Do you need to get revenge on someone? Do you have to go home?"

The boy shook his head vehemently in answer to the last question, water flying from his wet hair. He looked so frightened that Rodney felt scared himself.

Fic: the things they never tell you in the job description [merlin/arthur, merlin]
‘I see,’ said the dragon with the kind of gravitas that only someone who has been extremely bored for an extremely long time could ever hope to perfect. He swept his majestic gaze from Merlin to Arthur where they both sat cross-legged on the outcropping, refusing to look at each other. He gravely folded one taloned paw over the other, wondering just what he’d done in all the innumerable years of his life to deserve this. ‘And how does that make you feel?’

Fic: Fostered [merlin/arthur, merlin]
He woke later, when the orange-gold late-afternoon sun was painting slats across the foot of his bed, with a deeply irritated Arthur Pendragon hovering over him. / “That stupid dragon of your father’s nearly killed me,” Merlin tried to say, which came out more or less like, “Nrgh.” / Arthur, heartless, said only, “You are truly the worst manservant in the world.”
