“No way.”
“What do you mean, no way? I already sent a message to the family group chat saying you’re coming.”
“They weren’t taking me seriously. I had to bring someone they could actually see and touch and breathe in so they believe I have a real boyfriend and not just a random blow up doll I use to pretend there’s someone else in the house with me.”
Quentin stutters for a second, struggling to choose which part of all of that to unpack first.

“Eliot Waugh”, Quentin said. “Would you do me the honor to be my fake boyfriend for my childhood’s crush wedding?”
“I thought you would never ask”, Eliot replied.

to be unbroken or be brave again. - milominderbinder - The Magicians (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
In December, Eliot Waugh goes through a terrible break-up and denounces the entire concept of love. In January, Quentin Coldwater finds out his dad is sick, and becomes determined to help out with money. In February, Josh Hoberman asks Margo Hanson out on a date, and she says no. But she doesn't just say no. She says no because she's worried about her best friend: she's not going to date anyone until Eliot starts dating again, too.

To Josh, the solution seems clear. Pay Quentin, who seems to be the only other person Eliot can stand to be around for more than a single night, to ask him out.

Of course, he's not taken Quentin's Quentinness into proper account. Instead of lying to Eliot, Quentin tells him everything right away, and the two of them embark on a scheme together to convince both Margo and Josh at the same time. Just a couple of friends, pretending to be madly in love. No way this could possibly get out of control. Right?

“You know how—um—tonight is the final formal?” Eliot nods. “Well, um, the guys have been giving me a lot of crap about not having anyone to go with, and about not dating anyone at all period this entire summer, like not even a single kiss or anything and...and I heard you’re not going with anyone in particular, and—um—I was wondering if you’d be willing to go with me and pretend to be with me? Like pretend we’re together, just so everyone shuts the fuck up?”

Quentin asks Eliot to be his fake date at the end of summer camp, only it’s more complicated than he’d planned for.

Fifty Shades of Fakery - emeraldine087 - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Steve Rogers is a new hire in a mammoth tech company and the focus of a top executive's unwelcome sexual advances. He's just about at the end of his rope in pushing the sleazebag away, when he gets an unlikely and unexpected rescue from the reclusive--and sexy--Chief Technical Officer of the company, and finds himself with an insta-boyfriend before the day is out.

Posing as Tony Stark's fake boyfriend is not going to be a hardship. At all.

Holiday Spending - tisfan - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
anonymous asked:

Winteriron collage au w/fake relationship; Tony asks Bucky to be his fake boyfriend, either to shake off some matchmaking friends or to piss off Howard. Turns out Bucky is all Tony ever wanted in a boyfriend. Too bad it's not real (extra angst if Tony paid for Bucky to act as his boyfriend, now Tony wonders if it was all for the money). Happy ending?

Note: This fic gets dark after some fluff; happy ending promised, but that's not what you're getting right now.

Plus One - Amethystina - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Sometimes, Bucky makes stupid and rash decisions. Telling his friends that he's got a secret fiancé they've never met, well — that's, without a doubt, one of the worst. Because, not only does he manage to convince them that it's true, but they insist that he should bring said fiancé to his little sister's wedding so they'll get to meet him.

The problem being, of course, that Bucky doesn't have a fiancé and the man he has so vividly described to his friends — down to the color of his eyes and brightness of his smile — is just the bartender at his favourite bar. Sure, Bucky is infatuated with the man, but their relationship is definitely not as intimate as he has made everyone believe.

Long story short, Bucky has put himself in a deep mess and, somehow, needs to find a way out of it. And, as ludicrous as it might sound, he knows that his best bet is to simply ask said bartender if he'd be willing to be Bucky's pretend fiancé for a week. Maybe, if Bucky is lucky, Tony will agree to help him.

“Yes, well, you see . . .” Deucalion cleared his throat again. “In an effort for authenticity, the writer used an actual binding ceremony in the script. The casting director, wanting to make sure it was pronounced correctly, found an actual shaman to perform it. He did so.”

“You – you mean – are you saying that Derek and I are actually married?” Stiles managed to squeeze out of his rapidly closing throat.

Based on a prompt from Tumblr user thetwogaydetectives - "fake relationship that ends up being so real, they finally realize they are in love."

Probably not EXACTLY what she was looking for... but, eh, my muse has its own kinks to fulfill.

John should’ve known something was up when he came home one evening to Sherlock pacing before the windows only to pivot on one heel and pin him with a stare.

That didn’t mean, however, that he was prepared to show off his thespian chops by pretending to be Sherlock’s boyfriend in the middle of a gay bar for the sake of a case.
