Following Dreams (to Doom or Desire) - Hiruma_Musouka - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
In a world full of spells and spirits, humans have found ways to make magic mundane. If it was an everyday thing, it was controlled. It was safe. The wonder was gone, but so were the Gods: all they were was stories.

Ink Blossoms - Triangulum - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
"So, you're going to ruin your niece's baby shower with flowers in the wrong color?" the florist, Stiles, asks when they reach the counter. He pulls out a binder and starts flipping through it.

"Not ruin. Mildly inconvenience," Peter says.

"Right, messing with a hormonal pregnant woman seems like a great plan."

"To be fair, her fiance and the father of her baby is my ex-boyfriend," Peter says. "And we weren't broken up when they started 'dating'."

Stiles looks up at him in surprise. "And you're still getting her flowers?" he asks.

"It's under duress, I assure you," Peter says. He absolutely wouldn't be here if his alpha hadn't ordered it.

"Well, shit, yeah, let's get you some purple revenge flowers," Stiles says.

Future Cultivation AU - Aki_no_hikari - 魔道祖师 - 墨香铜臭 | Módào Zǔshī - Mòxiāng Tóngxiù [Archive of Our Own]
It has been more than a thousand years since the Sunshot Campaign. The world continued moving on, the great sects grew in power and then waned, eventually collapsing. Cultivation continues at the hands of smaller schools and, much like our world's martial arts, it's taught more as an extracurricular than a life-path, with few ever putting in the work required for the development of a golden core.
Lan Zhan and Wei Ying are two college students taking a seminar class about the Sunshot Campaign. Under Wei Ying's scrutiny, Lan Zhan reveals his emotional connection to the mysterious yet well-known Hanguang-jun.

He printed out the most likely-looking results and brought them along to his next lesson. Shen Yuan’s nose twitched adorably as he read through them, and the lightest dusting of pink bloomed across his cheeks. “Binghe,” he said once he was done, delicately fanning himself with elegant motions of his fine-boned wrist. “Are you interested in the theoretical foundations of this sort of spell?”

“I was hoping for something a little bit more… practical,” said Luo Binghe, suavely. Almost suavely.

It would’ve been suave if the collar of Shen Yuan’s shirt hadn’t been shifted by the breeze, exposing the exquisite jut of his collarbone, and Luo Binghe’s voice hadn’t gotten a little strangled, there, in the middle of the sentence.

The fanning motions increased in speed.

Luo Binghe turned towards the source of the voice, and saw him, then, outlined in golden light, the bamboo leaves casting delicate shadows on his features.

The most wonderful man in the world.

“Gah,” said Luo Binghe, eloquently.

The most wonderful man in the world’s gaze shifted from Luo Binghe, to the inferno still raging in his apartment. His fair brow creased. “What has that idiot done now?”

There’s a legend among the people of the north that speaks of a she-wolf that once saved a child, and gave birth to a babe of her own that was neither human nor animal - but both. The northerns still whisper of the lineage and pay tithes in their honor.

Shang Qinghua thinks it’s an intriguing enough tale, and plans to use it as the basis for his latest story. When he decides to enter the northern forest in search of inspiration, however, he gets more than he bargained for.

You remind me of (Home) - ModernArt2012 - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
“Dammit Hashirama, I swear on the Fire God’s eternal flame that if you’ve pissed off your house again, I’m going to let it kill you with absolutely zero regrets.” Madara growls into the receiver of the phone, head still achy and throbbing from having to coax his aunt’s house all yesterday in order to let the masons come and fix the exterior without It trying to cause accidents. It’s too fucking early to deal with Hashirama’s drama queen of a house. Of fucking course his nearest and dearest would have houses that were persnickety and have difficult personalities that necessitated regular placation.

MadaTobi AU where Madara has (slight) House magic, among other magic.

(Or, I thought about Madara being able to speak to houses, then the Sumigakure prompt for Modern Magical happened. I regret nothing.)

Luckily, Hawke's got some tricks up his sleeve.

Evil Overlord, Inc. - Footloose, mushroomtale - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Merlin is a recent graduate with a double doctorate in metaphysics and physics. Arthur is a low-level paper pusher with a desk in the sub-basement of MI5. They live in a world with ridiculous laws and restrictions against anyone who might be supernatural in any way, shape, or design.

Merlin has huge debts looming over this head, a few quid left in his bank account, and no job prospects. Arthur is pushing thirty, in a dead-end job with no chances of promotion to fieldwork agent, and is thoroughly bored with his life.

One ill-advised Craigslist advert, five pushy mates, one nosy all-knowing sister, and a hacked email account later, Merlin and Arthur take the world by storm.

(Or, more precisely, they take over the world.)
