Wordcount ~2k

the coffee!AU, where John goes to the same coffee shop every day, and there is this very grumpy, quiet barista that always makes him amazing coffee and keep the best pastries for him. And one day the Sheriff learns that Derek is the one to bake them all, so he decides: this will be my son in law, I need a reason to have this man in my family for at least forty to fifty years. Then he matchmakes with no subtility whatsoever, basically offering his only son on a silver plate, Stiles spluttering all the way (but he takes Derek’s number anyway because the guy is just amazingly cute)

Summary:

It is 1808 and times are tough when you have nothing and Eggsy has no idea how to keep him and Daisy above water. He is at the end of his rope and he comes across an add for the position of companion to a retired Commodore. It is the answers to their prayers if he can get the job. And not like dealing with an ancient Navy man will be that difficult, he's done far worse in his day.

Only the man isn't so ancient and wants nothing to do with the companion that was hired for him. But Eggsy needs the job and is determined to change Merlin's mind.

Love's a Battlefield (and the Navy Did Not Train Steve for This Shit) by cyerus
Words:12,488

Steve McGarrett, sick to death of being hounded by terrifying females related to Kono about his tragic singledom, makes up a significant other. And to justify his keeping it a secret, he makes it a guy, so at least he can leverage the partially closeted cache. He invents a lot of stuff: this guy is blond; this guy has blue eyes; this guy wears ties and comes from the mainland and is short like a midget. And then one day, in Steve's darkest hour, he more or less tackles this guy into Hawaiian asphalt and drags him to Kono's mom's house. This story made me literally laugh out loud. Highly recommended, even if you typically don't read in this fandom, which I don't.

Cullen struggles with his lyrium addiction. Some days are better than others.

Or (if you prefer a silly summary for a not-so-silly fic): In which Cullen is suicidally depressed, Dorian is a high-functioning alcoholic, and Bull just wants them both to be happy, except when he wants to crack their heads together for being emotionally stunted idiots.

Spoilers galore, particularly for Cullen's, Dorian's, and Bull's personal quests.

Door to Door - Ferritin4 - Hockey RPF [Archive of Our Own]
Words:10,148


Summary:

"Hey," Jamie says, pounding on the door. "Hey, open up!"

The dogs shut up.

"Hi, shit, sorry," says the stupidly fucking gorgeous man who opens the door in a tank top and boxers. "Shit, were the dogs loud? They get really excited when I come home."

"It’s three in the morning," Jamie says. On cue, a dog pokes its head around the corner to the entryway and bounces over to the — to this guy. It’s followed by another, browner dog, and Jamie has a moment of surrealist sleep-deprived horror where he imagines an infinite string of dogs forever bounding gleefully towards —

"I work two jobs. I’m Tyler," Tyler says, extending his hand. "Do you want to come in?"

Well, he’s not doing anything illegal, Jamie thinks, shaking it, because no criminal in the history of crime has ever willingly invited a cop into their house, and there is no one in the city of Dallas who hasn’t pegged Jamie as a cop in six seconds of meeting him.

Summary:

“Kira doesn't care a wick if you can afford her dresses and bonnets, I'm well aware. It doesn't change the fact that I have to look after her best interests. I'd like her to be with an Alpha that puts her above all else even if he cannot afford her every luxury.”

Scott looks surprised. “I know you do not know me, sir, but I can promise you that that is my only wish. I—I love Kira quite dearly, and all I want is to provide for her, make her happy.”

“So you will marry off your brother,” Derek says, taking a sip from his drink.

Moltslawn Industries | Shousetsu Bang*Bang
Words: 18,517

Half the board of management was already sleeping. Martin doodled another little man, colored its coat in a boring pencil grey, filled in its necktie with the usual blue stripes and killed this one with an anvil.

Why? He wondered as Smith — the director from Moltslawn Industries, one of their satellite factories — paused in his presentation. What was his name… Calvin? Corbin? Colin! Colin Smith, stood, eyes blinking slowly at the people present. The washed-out blue of this particular gaze was the perfect color to highlight the emptiness shining through those shallow pools of nothing. It was on par with Colin's ash-blond-not-really-a-color hair, the man's non-existent flair for fashion and his overall lack of communication skills. Unless being this boring was considered a talent. In that case, Colin was super-powered.

Why wasn't this loser transferred? Or demoted? Better yet, fired?
