[TW] A Desperate Arrangement - mikkimouse
"I'm sorry, I believe there's something wrong with my hearing," Stiles said. "Because I could have sworn you just told me you set up a betrothal agreement with the Hales. A betrothal agreement involving me. Me."
Scott smiled his easygoing smile and nodded, which told Stiles no, he hadn't misheard a damn thing.

some weird pov changes, but overall worth a read

A Token, My Liege?
Prompt: “My liege!” called the knight to the war-mage. “A token, to wear into battle?”

A hush falls, as everyone in the room holds their breath in fear of the war-mage’s temper.

“Will a scarf do?” The war-mage asks, already unwinding xir own.

above the water, below the wind - Belfire - Red Hood and the Outlaws (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
Not everyone can be Moses, lifted from the waters and destined to become the saviour of an enslaved nation. Some people are Jason, half dead and floating face down, dragged from the ocean by lesbians. Lesbians who are immensely confused as to why this boy has gills and webbed hands.

Speak Truth - gluupor - All For The Game - Nora Sakavic [Archive of Our Own]
"Little rabbit," said the Monster. "Were you sent to kill me?" he continued mockingly, and smiled. It wasn't a nice smile; it was distinctively threatening, all of the Monster's pointed teeth showing.
"I am not afraid of you," said Neil.
The Monster cocked his head thoughtfully. "Interesting," he said. "Why are you here, rabbit?"

Breaker of Horses - Sineala - Avengers (Comics), Marvel (Comics), Marvel 616 [Archive of Our Own]
What do you do when the Roman Empire you were raised to love consigns you to the sands of the arena? Antonius is a prince of the Dacians, captured in war and sold as a gladiator. He yearns for his freedom. Stephanos -- the last living centaur -- is his fellow slave and trainer. Centuries old, disillusioned by a Rome that has become a shadow of itself, Stephanos has all but given up on life... until he meets Antonius, and both of their lives are forever changed.

After the events of "Breaker of Horses," our heroes finally have some time alone together. But there are a few things they need to figure out about intimacy first, in more ways than just the physical.

Thirst - Esselle
' "It's you. I can… smell you," Hinata said, a little awed, and Tobio realized the reverse was true as well. Whatever he was smelling, that hot, smoky scent—that was Hinata.

Tobio bowed his head to rest his cheek against Hinata’s forehead, breathing deep inhales of his skin. He had never done this before, never. Not only because of the enormous breach of social conduct, in casually letting a Wolf who had professed no interest in courting him scent a Lamb like him this way; but also because he had never met one who had ever found his scent pleasing.

Hinata thought he smelled good?'

32. Pebble - LadyUkkey, NekoTiara - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Sailors cannot resist the call of a...merman?

"My heart is pierced by Cupid
I disdain all glittering gold
There is nothing can console me
But my jolly sailor bold"

A Mermaid's Kiss by Lunatical
There had been rumors of a sunken pirate ship, not too far away from Tony's nest, and he'd headed out to investigate. He was expecting to find some cool trinkets, or maybe even a treasure -- shipwrecks were always full of human-made stuff, and Tony liked to collect and study it.
What he ended up finding, though, was a bit bigger than a couple of cute toys. Seriously, what was Tony going to do with two shipwrecked sailors?

You're the One That I Want - emmagrant01
[Grease AU]

"Someone’s arms went around him and pulled him out of the water. He sucked in a deep breath, then coughed, blinking salt out of his eyes. The sun seemed exceptionally bright overhead, and the ground beneath him rough when the water rushed out again.

Had he nearly drowned in a foot of water? How embarrassing.

“Hey, man, you all right?”

He looked up at the boy standing over him, the one who’d pulled him up out of the surf. Locks of auburn hair flopped over the dark sunglasses he wore, but it was his smile that caught Aziraphale’s attention. He looked like he was on the verge of laughing, and he was so beautiful Aziraphale didn’t even mind."
