T-I-J-P - Ningengirai (ThisBeautifulDrowning) - Hannibal (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“'m fine.” He doesn't feel fine. Maybe it's better if he heads back to the hotel. Or better yet, the police station. He can catch a break there and be around if something happens. “Just a bit dizzy. It'll pass.”

The man studies him for a long, silent minute. Then he extends his hand in greeting. “Hannibal Lecter, MD. When was the last time you had a real meal?”

"You've been very honest with me," said Hannibal. "Since our first meeting. Moreso, perhaps, than is wise for an escort."

Will shrugged. "You're the one who's paying an obscene amount of money for exclusivity."

"I wonder why, that's all," said Hannibal. "How it is that you feel you can speak so freely in my presence."

Vanilla Orchids - or - How The Pepper Got Her Name | Anonymous
Tony Stark, recently raised to CEO of his late father's multinational corporation Stark Industries, has refused all contact with his business partner Obadiah Stane for more than three days. Replacing the personal assistant who quit only a few days prior, Stane sends someone from his own staff to take over - a no-nonsense, capable, bright young redhead by the name of Virginia Potts who is sure she knows everything she needs to about the company's resident problem child.

But what she finds on her arrival quickly disabuses her of anything she had ever known about Tony Stark, leaving only her job description to guide her. What's left after that? Doing her job - but with a little bit of magic from an unexpected source, something more is forged. //

So someone wrote me an amazing story for avengersfest and it is not getting nearly enough love! It is over 20K words of beautifully characterized Tony/Pepper back story, in which Tony is in a very vulnerable situation when Pepper is first hired as his assistant. I like the way the author develops trust and closeness between them, and the distinction between Tony's public and private personas makes a lot of sense. It's a different take on them than I've seen before, and I like it a lot!

Inception: Origins 'verse (Military Backstory) - laceymcbain - Inception (2010) [Archive of Our Own]
Exploring Arthur and Eames' backstory in the military where they each lead an elite unit in the dream-sharing trials. The Powers That Be would prefer to keep the participants in the dark, but Arthur and Eames find each other, fall in love, and change dream-sharing forever.

The story of how Eames and Arthur meet is one of the great legends of the dream-sharing profession.

In it, there's a dark alley, a foreign country, a bar, a punch in the face, a loaded die, a poker chip, a three-piece suit, and a kiss. Not necessarily in that order. And not necessarily all the time.
