Honourable Mentions - manic_intent - John Wick (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“Be grateful that it’s only for a year,” Gianna said as they rode.

“Very grateful.” Santino didn’t bother to hide his contempt. “Why the fuck does he live in the middle of a fucking haunted forest? What does he think he is, a chicken-legged cottage witch?”

Dream a Little Dream - track_04 - Killing Eve (TV 2018) [Archive of Our Own]
“She?” Elena gave her a curious look. “You think it was a woman?”

“Yes. The witness said that the voice they heard speaking with Bauer out on the balcony sounded female, and we already know there are a decent number of female assassins operating—”

“Maybe it’s your dream woman,” Elena said, giving her a cheeky grin.

“No, she’s—” Eve started, then stopped when she noticed Elena’s smile widening. She took a deep breath and rolled her eyes. “Of course it’s not. That would be crazy.”

The Road Found - yoursecretbattle - Fast and the Furious Series [Archive of Our Own]
The lines had been there for as long as Brian could remember. And he knew, he knew deep down what they were, what they meant. He knew that there were people out there with the same lines, a few of them and that when he found one, when he touched one of them, he’d be bonded to them for life.

But somewhere along the line he had convinced himself that it wasn’t real, that Bonding didn’t exist and the lines were nothing but a scar.

Which is what he tells the recruitment officer. Even if he knows deep down he’s lying, the lie comes out easy, like it’s practically the truth and then he’s in and that’s that. He’s in the army and they’re shipping him out to fight for his country.

And not once did Brian consider that what he knew deep down to be true, could ever eventuate in something like this. Not once did he ever think that he would find his bondmate, the one person he couldn’t live without in war-torn Vietnam.

“There was a boy I saw earlier-”
Her eyes flick up to him, and she watches him for a long moment, “…Oh?”

To Valiant Hearts Sing - evil_brainmate - Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015) [Archive of Our Own]
“I would offer to you my son, and only omega child, Prince Gary's hand in marriage.”

Gary won't even look at him. The young man’s jaw is set in a hard line, his posture straight and head held high, but it looks more like false bravado of a man facing the hangman’s noose.

When the Dowager Queen makes Q an offer he never expects, he must choose between the life he's always assumed he'd have—a wife, a normal family, and a shop of his own—or life as the king's pampered—and paid for—pet.

What I'd do for love - Casstea - James Bond (Craig movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Love was a strange thing. People would go to such lengths to try and find it, hidden in the shadows of relationships that were never quite meant to be.

And when they found it? When they managed to find the miracle that had once been nothing more than a fairytale? Well then they would walk through hell itself to ensure that the one they loved came to no harm.

James Bond was no different.
