Would you eat them with a fox? by lullabyknell
"Years later, Iruka will have preferred to say that he had laid eyes on Naruto and immediately thought of the boy as an adoptive younger brother or even simply as the lonely child in desperate need of support that he had been. Unfortunately, no matter how many years pass, if Iruka said this, he would be lying his ass off.

When Umino Iruka had first laid eyes on Uzumaki Naruto, in the middle of the school grounds, he was mostly just terrified."

galwednesday, silentwalrus, skellerbvvt: Scents and Sensibility: The Working Assassin's Guide to Supersoldier Seduction
Captain America wakes up from the ice in 2013. The Winter Soldier wakes up in 2009, or rather defects from HYDRA, for a value of defect that’s closer to decimate. He ends up working for SHIELD. In April 2014, he’s assigned to Captain America’s mission as a sniper.

Steve’s just trying to get some kind of life together. Bucky is too, or at least he was until tall, blond and Captain shows up and starts just - being there, all the time. It’s terrible. It’s the worst. He has to do something about it.

nichestars: The static of your arms, it is the catalyst
"It's not like I meant to take it," Rey tells Luke later. "I can't help it."

Luke nods, a measured incline of his head, once and then twice. His hands are folded in the weathered fabric of his cloak, and he's watching the sea, not Rey.

"I don't think it makes me a bad person," Rey says, quieter.

"No," Luke says. "We don't choose our gifts."

Or, an x-men au.

plutos: step out into the sun
“I gotta talk to you, buddy, real quick,” Poe says lowly, and grabs Finn’s hand to haul him back out of the mess hall. His pilot friends cheer loudly, Karé yelling something about keeping it decent, and Finn barely has a second to process it before Poe’s yanking him away and into a deserted side corridor.

“I can explain,” he says quickly, running his spare hand through his hair.

“Well good,” Finn snaps hotly, “Because I’ve had a really fucking weird day.”

Otherwise known as: Finn Is An Oblivious Numbskull, or: the one where Finn gets a name, a jacket, a droid, and a marriage out of nowhere in only a few short weeks

mataglap: Acceptable Substitute
Hanzo has lived without certain things for so long that he has all but forgotten about them. McCree is a bright red exclamation mark of a reminder, and Hanzo discovers that the saying "out of sight, out of mind" unfortunately also works in reverse.

Meanwhile, McCree is an exceptional liar, and the most egregious of his lies are the ones he tells himself.

ClaroQueQuiza: Afterdrop
Overwatch can be forgiven for keeping Hanzo at arm's length despite the endorsement of his intended murder victim. Six months of provisional membership, spent in the field, is a reasonable compromise.

But not everyone is on board with giving Hanzo a chance.

McCree, least of all.

The Act of Creation Will Be Your Salvation
When Tony Stark was seventeen years old, he built his first AI. On that day, he ceased to be his father's creation, and became a creating force in his own right.

That one act likely saved his life, and not always in the most obvious ways.

xzombiexkittenx: Beasts of Prey
Chiyoh never saw herself as a caretaker. She was a gamekeeper. She was the guard that kept poachers away from her rare beast. Rare, if not entirely unique, and because of that he was beautiful in the way that an Amur Leopard or a South China tiger is beautiful. Their scarcity, their endangered status, means they must be protected at all costs. She forgave Hannibal his nature and made her own peace.
