After a month of absence, his nephew returned, blessedly free of harm… and with a red rose tucked neatly into his hair.

“What is this?”

“A parting gift from the Dark Mage,” explained Lan WangJi, and Lan QiRen shuddered at the mere idea.

Oh his poor, poor nephew.

Long-Term - idiopathicsmile - Good Omens (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Take, for instance, the couple she’s consulting with this afternoon, for their upcoming October ceremony. Seemingly mismatched in every respect. The plump, fair-haired one looks like a parody of an absent-minded professor, as sketched by someone who didn’t bother to do much actual research; his clothes are so outdated it teeters on costume. He’s wearing a bow tie, and not in that reinvented hipster way. This is a bow tie unacquainted with the cycles of fashion, a bow tie that has never heard the word irony.

His partner is a rangy, black-clad ginger in snakeskin boots. He has the look of a hungover rocker about him, and would somehow, even without the sunglasses he has fully committed to wearing indoors on a cloudy afternoon. He’s sprawled almost defiantly in his chair and keeps throwing dubious glances around Dr. Blackwell’s office, as though expecting a lightning bolt to strike him down for merely daring to be within spitting distance of a church.

An ill-fated parent teacher conference reunites Jin Ling's wayward uncle with Sizhui's father. AKA: A matchmaking disaster as told by Jin Ling, Sizhui, and Jingyi.


Jin Ling knows he’s in deep trouble even before reporting to Headmaster Lan’s office, but the words “your uncle will be here soon” still strike the fear of God in him. His only consolation is that Jingyi and Sizhui’s guardians are also in the office, Jingyi’s mom already lecturing her sheepish-looking son. Lan-ayi only stops when Sizhui’s father, a quiet and tall man in white, clears his throat, causing her to engage him in one-sided smalltalk.

This is a disaster. Jin Ling had spent such a nice break at home for Mid-Autumn Festival, and Fairy’s presence had soothed his homesickness after returning to boarding school in Gusu. He knows pets aren’t allowed, but who is going to report Jin Ling when his father pays good money for a private suite in the dorms? Then there was the incident with Jingyi, a box of mooncakes, and a door left ajar. Long story short, he spent an hour chasing Fairy down the halls with Sizhui and Jingyi before finding his dog nosing up to a very angry Headmaster Lan.

twice the heart - taizi - Natsume Yuujinchou | Natsume's Book of Friends [Archive of Our Own]
While getting Natsume to admit to anything more than “school was okay” is like pulling teeth, Nishimura is an eager conversationalist, and launches into charming anecdotes of countryside shenanigans with very little prompting on Shuuichi’s part.

In two hours, Shuuichi has learned Natsume’s favorite color, his least favorite food, the title of a book series he’s been binge-reading for the last two weeks, and the entire story of how he and Taki and Kitamoto all got stuck up the same tree. That’s more than he’s learned from Natsume in almost a year.

Perhaps most remarkably, Natsume doesn’t mind at all. He watches Nishimura the way Shuuichi has seen people watch their favorite part of their favorite movie, every now and then smiling in a faint, knee-jerk way that says he’s unaware his mouth moved at all.

Ah, Shuuichi thinks gleefully. So that’s it.

playacting - nex_et_nox - Batman (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
“So,” Jim said, “are you one of Wayne’s new kids?” Because only siblings acted that way toward each other, and it seemed like every time Gotham turned around, Bruce Wayne was adopting more kids. It was a reasonable question.

“What?” Jay asked. “No, I’m—” He paused. Very slowly, his head tilted as he looked over Jim’s shoulder in the most obvious way he possibly could.

Jim Gordon accidentally meets the "newest" member of the Wayne family.

Phantom Pains - Applepie - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
There is something going on with Kakashi, but Minato can’t figure out what. All he has are distressing deductions, each one progressively worse than the last. It’s no wonder Minato can’t help but fear and fear and fear…
(To be fair though, it really wasn’t his fault he never considered the possibility of time-travel)

edenfalling | [Fic] Whose Allegiance Is Ruled by Expedience" -- Naruto
There was a limit to how hidden any ninja village could actually be, even with the bulk of the active ninja out on missions at any given moment. It took a lot of resources to support that many soldiers, and even more to support all their support personnel. Grains and vegetables had to be grown and stored, animals raised and slaughtered, cloth woven, metals mined, waste removed, etc.

There was a lot of money in running a city on a constant, low-grade war footing, if you knew where to look and didn't mind the risk of invasion.
