Hide A Heart Of War - RayShippouUchiha
“You’ve got war in your heart boy,” Howard sneers, “don’t ever try and pretend to be anything but what you are.”

Tony feels the familiar burn of a flower mark being etched into his skin but he doesn’t look, doesn’t try and check to see what it is. Instead he keeps his eyes on Howard and his hands cupped around his bleeding mouth and nose.

The Settler - charlesdk
“What do you want to do?”

Steve pauses and looks at them.

What he wants is to stay with them. He doesn't have any family left, they all died before he even joined the war and became... this. Captain America turned whatever he is now. But Natasha and Sam have become his family over the years. Not just because they're on the run together, fugitives and vigilantes, but way before that too.

He doesn't want to leave that.

But he knows that, realistically, he can't stay with them and they can't stay with him.

So he looks at them with a smile and lies. “I don't know.”

OR; In which Steve retires and finally finds a place to call home.

no matter how long the day is (i'll come home to you) - alby_mangroves, talkplaylove
Steve’s spent an hour along Portobello Road before he sees the paparazzi on the left side of the street, trying to be inconspicuous by a street lamp. He crosses the street and ducks into the first store he sees, tucked behind a screaming red door and under a blue and white striped awning.

He listens, feet planted in front of the door, shoulders tense, as he looks around the shop. Row upon row of books are on the shelves in front of him, the wood creaking under their weight. Behind the counter is a dark haired man wearing a jacket, elbow on the table, stubbled chin on one hand, gloved left hand flipping the pages of a book.

No one follows Steve in.

Or, the one where Captain America travels the world, learns how to be Steve Rogers again, and meets Bucky Barnes along the way.
Also: the one where two old souls fall in love over young adult books, long distance calls, and texting at strange hours of the day.

With Nothing On My Tongue - Chapter 1 - Ms_Anthrop - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]

slow increments
Peter is enigmatic, egotistical, sometimes barely sane. He's sharp and cutting and takes more time to care for the pack than anyone.

And sometimes, John catches him watching Stiles.

ugly: in defense of pansy parkinson - dirgewithoutmusic - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
“Why are you here?” Parvati asked Pansy once. People asked her a lot, when they found her in Flourish and Blotts, or at work on the Prophet. Their eyes raked her, looking for green, for silver, for venom. Sometimes she'd smile back and let them see the danger.

"Because I'm not fifteen anymore," said Pansy. "God, do you know what precious Potter Sr. got up to at school, the bully? But boys get to grow up to be men, you see, and us girls just grow up to be bitches."

Eyes Closed to Fingers Crossed - thememoriesfire
Eyes Closed to Fingers Crossed picks up on Santana shortly after "Sexy", and departs from Glee canon from that point onwards. Note: this series is not Brittana. Mind the pairings listed in the series.

The series follows Santana for the next 3 years and covers, loosely, her coming out process in junior year of high school (Five Stages), her last year of high school and her hang-up on Brittany (The Lights That Stop Me), her freshman year of college in New York, in which she tries to move on with her life (Blind With Casualties), and her sophomore year in college, during which time she actually moves on (We Started Secret Plans).

Dean’s type, to the extent he has one, doesn’t ask too many questions, lets him stay long enough the morning after to make them both breakfast, and drinks whatever’s on special for two dollars a pop at the local bar.

Twelve, thirteen, sixteen, seventeen, twenty three, thirty, forty two: he is a fighter, always a fighter, but his victories taste like loss and forsaken possibilities, dreams deferred and left to bloat under the water.
