Tony goes blonde for a few months.

She isn’t nuts about it, but Steve and Bucky really seem to hate it, which is a good selling point. The press are convinced it's the beginning of a mental break.

They might not be totally wrong.

Last summer, Tony stole one of Bucky’s sweaters.

It’s green, dark green, with thin navy stripes. It was too big on Bucky, so on Tony it’s almost comical. Except it’s not funny at all, the way Bucky’s stomach swoops when he sees him in it.

honest means of travel - spqr - Kingsman (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Roxy’s hand moves gently down the side of his face. He lets his eyes slip closed. “You told me you loved them,” she murmurs.

Eggsy huffs, and sinks deeper into the pillows. “Yeah,” he says. “It don’t matter, though. I’m used to carin’ more about people than they do about me.”

Guard Your Eggshell Heart - letsgostealafandom - Leverage [Archive of Our Own]
Parker had a theory, and her theory was this: it made Eliot really happy when they noticed the things he did for them. It made Eliot happy when they made sure he knew they noticed the things he did for them. And when Eliot thought they didn't notice, it made him- not unhappy, but something worse, something like he knew that was all he could expect from anyone and he'd resigned himself to it a while back. Once she'd noticed it, she couldn't stop, and the realization of how often they took Eliot for granted made her stomach twist uncomfortably.

Your Heart on Your Skin - zade - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Takes the trope of soulmate tattoos, twines in flower language, and adds the caveat that you bloom not just for your soulmate, but for every important moment of your life.

This fic successfully takes a fairly simple trope and worldbuilds it into something layered and deep with sense and delicious detail, with friendship as a focus and heartbreaking emotions. AKA: what more could I ask for?

blackeyedgirl: Best Practices in Workplace Relationships
Someone is sitting at the desk outside his office.
Mark comes to stand by the desk. “Do I know you?”
He is given a quietly appraising look. The man stands and offers Mark his hand. “Eduardo Saverin. You’re supposed to be interviewing me.”

Written for a prompt at the kinkmeme: They meet when Mark's already a billionaire and Eduardo is his new personal assistant.
