a thousand miles up and we're about to get higher - blackkat - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
There's a man hiding in the eaves of his porch.

Sakumo blinks, tips his head, but the image doesn’t change. A shinobi in a Konoha uniform has somehow managed to stuff himself into the corner of the roof, entirely out of sight from practically everywhere except the spot Sakumo is currently standing.

"Can I help you?" he asks bemusedly. [1690]

Reverently, Discreetly, Advisedly, Soberly - Thorne - Final Fantasy VII [Archive of Our Own]
"We have to get married or the world will end," Zack said, walking into the office and ducking the stapler that Sephiroth had thrown at him without even looking up from the paperwork he was doing.

"I'm not entirely sure where to begin addressing that request, but let's start with no," Sephiroth said in a monotone that was, if possible, even flatter than his usual.

Zack frowned. He'd really hoped to sell it with a strong opening statement. On to plan B. [2308]

It didn’t escape him that Steve shared his assumed last name. “Are you gonna be my cousin?” Bucky asked dully.

Steve frowned. “Husband, actually,” he said easily, holding up his left hand to show a typical golden band.

Bucky scowled and closed the door.

An AU in which Bucky is put in the witness protection program and Steve is the agent hired to protect him/pretend to be his husband. [40,292]

[Honestly, I really loved this. Bucky and Steve are both broken in their own ways, and they don't have a life-long friendship to fall back on. Also, the way they're both so excited about successfully getting through social interactions with the so-called 'normal' people on their block made me just about die laughing.]

couldn't fit in only black and white - pageleaf - The Queen's Thief - Megan Whalen Turner [Archive of Our Own]
AU: Gen and Irene met as children, and have been in a hidden relationship for years now. The plan is to get married, but the relationship between their countries is still fraught, and with Gen's position as Thief of Eddis, it wouldn't be looked well upon. But people are starting to notice their closeness anyway. They decide they need a distraction, something to dispel the rumors until they can be married.

Enter Costis. [24,003]

[Ok, I guess I really should read these books.]

bigger than these bones - Muir_Wolf - National Treasure (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Page 47, aliens in the abstract, and three parts of a whole; or: Riley Poole finally sees what's right in front of him. [8734]
If Carlie and the general were trying to get him alone—and Riley isn't saying he agrees with that whole ludicrous theory—it's easy to figure out why. Ben and Abigail are together. A couple. If they're trying to get information, Riley's watched enough National Geographic to know that you always try to separate the weakest of the herd, and of the three of them, he's the expendable one. If Ben hadn't needed him—hell, thought he needed him, Riley would've gone off with Carlie as soon as he was asked. Third wheels usually aren't looking to stay that way.

Hit Me Up - misura - Justified [Archive of Our Own]
"Rachel," Raylan said, and Tim sat up a little bit straighter, the better to slump back to express his lack of interest later. "I tell you me and Tim are getting up, close and naked together, you'd have something you want to say to that?"

"Just that I'd have expected him to have better taste, and that I think he's too good for you," Rachel said, not even looking up or back or any which way aside from at her computer screen. [1533]

Intimacy - astolat - Person of Interest (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
"Does that work?" John said, contemplating the position, and turned to him; Harold smiled at him and said, "It looks perfect, thank you," and then the smile fell abruptly off his face at the same moment John realized he'd bought a bookcase for Harold, for Harold's books, and they both sat down blankly on the bed together.

Bear went nosing around the bookcase, investigating. They sat and watched him. They even had a dog, John realized distantly. "It does seem obvious, in retrospect," Harold said, also staring at Bear. John had the bad feeling that it should have seemed obvious at the time. [3075]

Post-movie. Sarah joins the super secret spy group, reads a romance novel, learns how to shoot a gun, crashes 14 cars, and engages in shenanigans of a romantic and dangerous sort. [5999] [...My stomach muscles hurt. The crack this author is on must be of stupendous quality.]

When Marius's girlfriend Cosette writes an article about Enjolras's campaign for a seat in the state House of Representatives (not to mention his attempts to start a new political party) and mistakenly mentions Grantaire as his boyfriend, Enjolras ends up pretending to date him in the media storm that follows.

He's not sure why Grantaire says yes, but he's starting to want to find out. [19,370]

“It’s perfectly logical. We’re bound to be caught at some point together, and as far as I can see there’s no downside to connecting Mr. Warren to Mr. Wren socially. We’ll have an easier time explaining ourselves being together if we’re observed being together, and since you’ve vetoed all of my suggestions for activities that you could take up—“

“I’m not joining a bowling league, Harold,” John says firmly. [4295]

pprfaith: Steady
According to the files, Anthony Edward Stark is a second cousin twice removed of Howard Edward Stark, owner of Stark Industries and Stark International.

Clint Barton is a no-one off the street, an acrobat, a circus child. He has no mother, no father, and only a shady paper cut-out for a brother.

Everyone wonders about his past. Everyone asks. No-one ever asks about Tony Stark’s past.

The first time they run into each other, lightning streaks down Clint’s spine, stabs into his brain like a cattle-prod and he thinks, well, fuck me,.

People should definitely be asking about Tony Stark’s past. [2413]

Safety Net - Zinnith - Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Will more or less falls into his seat and slumps over, eyes closed, gasping for breath. Benji grabs his wrist and feels for a pulse, finds it frighteningly fast and shallow, like butterfly wings.

“Sir, is everything all right?”

Benji looks up to see a flight attendant leaning over them. He quickly plasters a smile on his face, hopes it looks natural, and pats Will’s knee. “Yes, yes, we’re fine. He gets a little nervous about flying is all. He just took a sleeping pill so he’ll probably be out for the rest of the flight. No need to worry.”

The flight attendant’s look grows soft and compassionate. “I understand. You boys let me know if you need anything, all right?”

Benji assures her that yes, they will, absolutely, and then she’s tripping along down the aisle, finally leaving them alone.

“She thinks we’re together,” Will mutters, observant as ever, even while clinging to consciousness by a thread.

“Does she? Oh, she does. All right.” Benji turns that fact over in his head a few times and comes to the conclusion that it’s not worth freaking out over. He shrugs instead. “It’s a cover as good as any, I guess.” [4131]
