Family - alafaye - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Merlin's sneaks a look at Gwaine's mail and now they're off to meet Gwaine's family. Only, it isn't what Merlin was expecting. Even after the huge house.

R - tellthemstories
Grantaire’s eyes are black.

He blinks twice, long dark lashes sweeping down and then snapping open. The pupils of his eyes - if he still had them - would be focused on Enjolras, but instead their darkness just reflects his image back, frowning and confused.

Enjolras tightens his grip on the knife he’s holding, feels his knuckles start to turn white.

Grantaire grins.

Would You Be Mine, Could You Be Mine
lady_ragnell - Arthur/Merlin, T --- 23,456

Merlin does not want to invite the Prime Minister's son onto his show, even if he is an environmental scientist. Arthur does not want to admit that he has a crush on the star of Merlin's Castle, the most popular children's show in the nation.

In which Merlin is Mr. Rogers, there is a bouquet of finger puppets, Freya and Gwaine hooked up years ago and neither of them wants to talk about it, and eventually everything turns out okay.

A Family Man - thistidalwave
Julius wasn't generally one for the bar on a Tuesday evening, but the office gossip that day had made clear to him that if he wanted to show up his competition and secure his promotion once and for all, he'd better bring a plus one to the company holiday party on Friday.

Under My Wings You Will Find Refuge - Fiver
"Let me come with you. It's not smart to go around fighting monsters on your own."

"Almost all hunters work alone."

"Doesn't make it any smarter."

In which Enjolras is going to save the innocent masses from the things that go bump in the night, and Grantaire is definitely either a lot more or a lot less than he appears. Neither of them can quite decide which it is.

Pyeongchang and Prejudice - AMarguerite - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that an ice skater in possession of a Grand Prix medal— of whatever metal—must be in want of another.”

Jamie and Lizzy Bennet, a brother-sister ice dancing duo from Ann Arbor, Michigan, are no exception, and are determined to win gold at the Pyeongchang Olympics. Newfoundlander Charles Bingley, the Canadian champion for men’s singles skating, believes they can make it. His coach, Québécois two-time Olympic gold medalist, Fitzwilliam Darcy... does not. //

From a bookmark (I concur wholeheartedly with this whole review): Just read this, it's everything I've ever wanted in a pride and prejudice modern au, not to mention a skating au. wholeheartedly recommended to anyone who likes p&p and slowburn and really fucking well-done modern translations of plot points and situations. wholeheartedly recommended in general, honestly. It's masterful. I will never shut up about this story.

Boeuf Mystère - galwednesday - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“Quick question,” Bucky said.

Steve looked up, but didn’t stop moving passports and stacks of cash into a nondescript blue duffel, his mind busily ticking through logistics. He’d grab the glock taped behind the hidden drawer in the desk on their way out, and they could buy new clothes once they got across the border into neutral territory, so they didn’t need much else, apart from whatever Bucky wanted to bring. One duffle should be enough. “Yeah, honey?”

“What the fuck.”

arriviste - Grantaire/Enjolras, E --- 43,943

Enjolras has heard all the stories about bonded pairs, but he's always dismissed them as propaganda. Half the work is already done for the oppressive system when they can package your commodification as a fairytale, make you kiss your chains.

Evil Overlord, Inc. - Footloose, mushroomtale
Merlin is a recent graduate with a double doctorate in metaphysics and physics. Arthur is a low-level paper pusher with a desk in the sub-basement of MI5. They live in a world with ridiculous laws and restrictions against anyone who might be supernatural in any way, shape, or design.

Merlin has huge debts looming over this head, a few quid left in his bank account, and no job prospects. Arthur is pushing thirty, in a dead-end job with no chances of promotion to fieldwork agent, and is thoroughly bored with his life.

One ill-advised Craigslist advert, five pushy mates, one nosy all-knowing sister, and a hacked email account later, Merlin and Arthur take the world by storm.

(Or, more precisely, they take over the world.)

arriviste - Enjolras/Grantaire, E --- 49,382

Enjolras has not only fake-married an alcoholic annoyance who doesn't take anything he says or does seriously, he somehow did it while Jehan was live-tweeting the civil ceremony. He's fighting for marriage equality, but the evidence overwhelmingly points to the fact that marriage as an institution is dead, and that he has personally helped administer its Barthesian coup de grâce.

In Defiance of all Geometry - idiopathicsmile
Amis House might not be the biggest student co-op, or the fanciest, but it's got something all its own. Specifically, smoke damage on the kitchen ceiling from that time Courfeyrac lit a political pamphlet on fire.

In which there are secrets, pining, pancakes, and revelations, and sometimes the shortest distance between three points is not a triangle but a circle.

Some Such Place (The Big Screen Classics Remix) - pocky_slash
Erik's spent the last eighteen months having lengthy socio-political conversations and casual sex with Charles Xavier after seeing Monday matinees at a dingy little independent movie theatre in the Village. That doesn't mean they're friends. Or that Erik should have any say in what Charles is going to do with his future.

(At least, that's what Erik keeps telling himself.)

Nothing Gold Can Stay - perkynurples - The Hobbit (Jackson Movies), The Hobbit - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Bilbo Baggins led a rather peaceful life, thank you very much, until an old acquaintance decided to turn it upside down, and he found himself agreeing to take a job that’s… let’s say not exactly up his alley, and might eventually cost him a little more than his treasured cozy lifestyle. Who would have thought tutoring a slightly menacing monarch’s more than slightly overbearing nephew could prove to be such an adventure?
Everything happens so fast in Erebor. Bilbo returns, to a life that promises well-deserved happiness, but he would be a fool to think that finding that happiness by the side of a monarch would come without its surprises and adventures.
Some stories are written down, and some are only told, and it takes a lifetime for a tree to grow.

holding onto stars - catchpenny
She despises him, but she's worried about suffocating him anyway, and Grantaire could live off that for months. He's not sure what resemblance it has to love, the love the poets sing of; what he feels for Enjolras is something that makes him dream about grovelling at her feet and kissing the sole of the shoe that kicks him.

He doesn't even fucking have a foot fetish.
