The Stonework was Admirable - Culumacilinte - The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien [Archive of Our Own]
‘Whatever I understand, I know that you have won renown and glory on the field, and shown yourself to be mighty in arms, and fearless, and fair. And I know that you are a lady of great heart, and that it is softer than you have made it. And that I would not for my life have you made less than you are. And I would wed you, and live with you in peace, as Éowyn, or Dernhelm, or whoever you wish. And what I do not yet understand, I will learn, and gladly.’

Pretentiously Kawaii • unpretty: unpretty: tim drake’s snapchat is...
tim drake’s snapchat is 90% him making bruce wayne do normal middle-class american things and filming the results. popular youtube compilations include the one where they’re at denny’s at two in the morning and tim keeps trying to get bruce to order a moon over my hammy just so he’ll have to say it, the one where they’re at disneyworld and bruce gets increasingly frazzled culminating in him actually physically picking up gaston for reasons no one can entirely recall, and everyone’s favorite series “bruce wayne doesn’t understand walmart”

'Til This Moment - LullabyKnell - Marvel, Marvel (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Avengers (Marvel Movies), Thor (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Darcy announces drunkenly to Jane, “I am a dragon and you... you beautiful Pop-Tart Jane, you... are my hoard. You are my princess! I loooove you lots'n'lots, you know.”

Jane, who has Darcy's head in her lap, pats Darcy's forehead sympathetically with the bottom of her beer bottle. “I love you lots and lots too, Darcy,” she says. “My fierce dragon intern.”

An AU telling of The Avengers where Darcy is a dragon and, I swear to you, it is somehow not crack.

Pardon Me While I Burst Into Flames - poisonivory - Daredevil (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
He moves his mouth a few times, soundlessly - a sure sign that he's working out what to say and doesn't think Foggy will like it. "I, uh, I...remember how I told you I was a demon?"

"That's pretty memorable," Foggy says, because, well.

"I…may have neglected to tell you what kind of demon I am," Matt says.

There are different kinds of demons? Matt's expression is nothing shy of abject terror, so Foggy makes a heroic effort and keeps his voice very calm. "What kind of demon are you, Matt?"

Matt gulps audibly. "An incubus."

My Snail Shell, missturdle: On the importance of Magical Girl...
Magical Girl stories are stories about growing up and becoming a woman, and protecting other women, saving other women, following desires and dreams and wishes and then kicking the bad guys in the face with your high heeled boots. The weapon is womanhood and girlhood and your sexuality because that’s the weapon society gave you and told you you were going to hurt yourself with it. Except the thing is, you don’t have to hurt yourself. You can protect yourself, and your friends, and your ideas, and feelings, and some days, yes, you fall down on your knees and sob messily because you can’t defeat every bad guy on your own, or ever, or alone - but goddamnit you have the ability to take power in your agency and who you are. Society doesn’t OFTEN tell girls that. We don’t often get the message that who we are is okay, acceptable, powerful, or amazing, much less that it’s also okay if we don’t succeed every single time. We know the fight is a part of our lives, but survival is the minimum. Getting stories about winning beyond that is amazing.

Pepper Potts, Tony Stark, and Bruce Banner are all, well, not completely mentally healthy people. But it takes less time than one might think for them all to end up together. At the same time, the Avengers manage to reassemble as a team, rather than just as people. Pepper's there for all of it.

1. If you find a dinosaur, you must hide it.
2. You may only hide the dinosaurs on SHIELD property.
3. Maria Hill's property is off-limits.
4. These rules are subject to change at any time, without warning.


Or, SHIELD agents know how to have fun but it will probably be terrifying for all involved.

s2b2: Big Name Fan, Part One
Maybe she was shy. She obviously wasn't shy online; she was vivacious and flirty and fun, but Bailey had learned from her other interviews that someone's online life wasn't always reflected in how they were in the flesh-and-blood world. Maybe she didn't think she was pretty enough.
