Weak Point - by imogenbynight - fandom Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]

The St. Alphonso’s Academy drama club website is still there in the browser history that night after Sam goes to bed, and as soon as Dean hears his door click shut he opens it and scrolls through the club’s contact list.

It’s been bothering him, the idea of subtext.

Because he’s read a few of Chuck’s original books, and he remembers how accurate a lot of it was, and he can’t help but wonder if there’s… well. If maybe it’s not just him.

This afternoon, when the thought had already been swimming around in his head for a few hours, he’d considered looking up the newer books to read them himself, but the more he thought about it the more he’d realized that he’d be reading with a bias. He wants to know what it looks like from an outside perspective.

Short of asking Sam--which is not going to happen--or Charlie--who is currently in Oz and therefore kind of hard to get in touch with--the high school fangirl who knows his story back to front is kind of the only other option he’s got.

What Happens Next is Up to You - by winterhill - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011), Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas - Ursula K. Le Guin [Archive of Our Own]
Raven’s feet hurt.

She’d been walking for years, since she had reached her fourteenth summer. She thought that she might be eighteen now, or twenty. Perhaps thirty. She didn’t know for certain — it was hard to tell the time out here on the plains. She’d worn through the bottom of her last pair of shoes, right at the ball of her foot, but she felt that she should keep them on; she was, after all, civilized. Even if the nights were getting cold again, even if she was thinner than she had been last winter, even if she’d been unable to find the golden gates of the city again.

Selfishly, she’d wanted to. Heavy and tired, her limbs blue and numb with cold, she’d wanted to find Omelas again and go home, back to her mother’s arms, and try to forget that in Omelas, happiness had a price.

A light shone up ahead — a fire, bright-hot against the night sky. She broke into a run; people, actual people. The worst they would do was to tell her to keep walking; the people who walked from Omelas were not unkind, but they were not kindly.

the things we did and didn't do - by pocky_slash - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]

The doctors say the best thing for Charles as he learns to cope with his paralysis is positivity from those around him. Erik is so tired of being positive that it's making him sick.

proxydialogue: Fic: And the Angel said: "Fuck it." And All the Bullshit of Heaven Could Not Convince Him Otherwise
The rehabilitation is designed to put soldiers back in the war, and it's counterproductive to break something you plan to use again. So no: they didn't break him. 

[Spoilers to the end of season 5. This is beautiful and devastating, and it just changed my headcanon.]

Vena Amoris and Other Old-Fashioned Bullshit - by pyrebi - fandom Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
In which angelic marriage bonds are apparently stupidly easy to trigger, Cas wages multidimensional war in Heaven, Dean can't catch a break like ever, Sam rather enjoys being a dick, love saves the day, and nobody consummates anything.

Dean instantly decides that he doesn't like where this is heading, so he decides to nip it in the bud and just say, "Cas, just to check--you and I aren't married, right?"

Castiel goes a bit...shifty. "The first thing to go in any anarchy state is the civil services. But rest assured, I'll have it annulled as soon as I'm back in power."


And just like that, Castiel vanishes.

Battering Ram - by astolat - fandom Supernatural [Archive of Our Own]
The Impala goes out in a blaze of glory in 2014, when they're out of belts and hoses and down to the last three cans of scavenged gasoline, and trying not to think about what's coming soon. They finish what she's started, Dean putting two bullets into the head of the last of the gang of human jackals she'd smashed through, and then he staggers around back to open the trunk. The two of them wrap their hands in rags and pull out everything they can: their one duffle, the knives and the guns and ammo. Then they stand back and just watch her burn, thundercloud black smoke rising in a pillar straight to heaven.

Incy Wincy Spider - Chapter 1 - by Tawabids - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]

Erik Lehnsherr is a renowned homicide detective, with his husband Charles at home and his partner on the job, Moira MacTaggert. When a twisted serial killer starts targeting mutants, Erik and Moira are the perfect team for the job, especially since Erik himself is the mutant poster-boy of an NYPD trying to improve their image.

But what they don't yet know is that the serial killer is an old soul out of Erik's past, and his next move is to pull Charles into his web.

You Could Turn It On Like A Light - by nightcamedown - fandom Sports Night [Archive of Our Own]

In which Dan and Casey are not fraught. Or so they say.

"Have a seat." Sam closed the door and turned to face Dan.

Dan looked around. "This is Isaac's office."

"I'm aware of that."

"It's just - I only mention it because I thought we were going to your office." Dan took a seat. "And this is not your office so much as it's Isaac's."

"When you two are done with your little skit," Isaac sighed from behind his desk, "please leave quickly and quietly."

On Solitude - by Toft - fandom Aubrey-Maturin Series - Patrick O'Brian [Archive of Our Own]
[Cracktastic fannish trope + O'Brianish sensibility in plot and narrative style. -L]

"The doctor 'as tellypathised 'im. Which as 'e 'as hentered into a mens communis" - Killick laboriously pronounced the phrases with absolute incomprehension, the sounds acquired only by dint of the number of times he had heard Stephen repeat them through the door - "in consequence of a wicked fish what they ate in Portsmouth."

Bonden whistled. "A bad fish can set you down something cruel. My cousin Bob Sullivan - you remember him, out of the Minerva - ate a nasty old plaice in Gibralter that had him laid up for a week. Running back and forth to the head on the hour, he was, until the first lieutenant, a right hard horse, had him stay there until he didn't have nothing more left in him to shit out. But you mark my words, the doctor will set the captain up with a purge and a draft, and he'll be better before you know it."

Charles is a science nerd. He has no shot with a glamorous bad-boy like Erik Lehnsherr, even if they are both mutants. (Inspired by this picture.)

Paralyzer - Chapter 1 - by Yahtzee - fandom X-Men - All Media Types, X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Author's Summary:
In 1965, Erik Lehnsherr has infiltrated the NYPD for his own purposes -- but his powers make him a brilliant detective. Yet that's not why FBI agent Charles Xavier has sought him out. It's because the mysterious killer they're both trying to find is murdering people like them: other mutants.

Their search for a madman binds them together. Their inner demons may tear them apart. But the greatest danger comes when the killer they're looking for looks back ...

[This AU is actually not very far from the movie XMFC; you can spot the point of divergence from canon. Mind the warnings. -L]

Ornithologies - Chapter 1 - by tahariel - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]

It’s bewildering, this matter of being mortal, and mammalian, and human.

He had spent the first few days on Earth confused and awkward as a newborn, this strange new fleshy body making demands of him he did not know how to interpret - that he feed it, water it, empty it of waste (or, as he found to his disgust, it would empty itself, as it chose.) His spirit self had slammed into the ground - into meathood - with the force of Jupiter’s gravity behind it, like being sucked into a black hole, slowly becoming heavier and thicker and more solid as he fell, comet-like, from the heavens. Burnt by the rushing wind and stung by the contemptuous stars as he passed them.

Fifteen Detentions - by Kaneko - fandom Breakfast Club (1985) [Archive of Our Own]

Vernon stared at him for a long moment. He turned his face up to the ceiling. "I count one- two- three-" His mouth moved silently. "Fifteen more Saturdays. Plus the one you still owe me."

Bender made a noise that maybe sounded like a laugh, and felt like rage. "Whatever," he tried to say.

[If you are into the kind of story where the narrator's self-esteem has taken such a beating he has no idea other people care about him even though several people have obviously decided to take action for his sake (and also, the narrator is less weepy rag-doll, more spitfire) then this is the story for you. -L]
