you're not a religious person (but) - isozyme - Good Omens - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett [Archive of Our Own]
"I'm in a bit of a pickle, my dear," Aziraphale said over the telephone.

Crowley was seized by immediate fury. Not even a decade, and they're at it again, he thought viciously. You'd think they'd be embarrassed enough to stay out of things for a few centuries at least, after botching the apocalypse like that.

"Who's done something to you?" hissed Crowley.

"Ah," said Aziraphale, in the quiet tone of someone who didn't mean to learn someone else's secrets and was mildly sheepish about it. "This crossword clue -- I'm stuck -- 1980s French fencer, thought you might know. It's eight letters and has a Q in it."

"Trinquet," Crowley snapped, in the tone of someone who had revealed one of his secrets and was annoyed about it.

An account pertaining to the cultivation of figs, the ecstasy of St. Theresa of Avila, the ontological uncertainty of mammoths, the nature of temptation, 2001: A Space Odyssey, and the ten years following the end of the world.

these furious passions, these chances - Ark - Good Omens (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Jesus fucking Christ, he’s in love with Crowley.

Aziraphale claps a hand over his mouth, as though he’s at risk of saying it out loud, all of it—blaspheming and swearing and realizing that he’s in love with Crowley, all in one go. He presses his fingers hard over shock-parted lips.

His other hand clutches the precious satchel of books that Crowley saved for him: Crowley, who knew him so well, who anticipated before even Aziraphale what the angel would need.

This Soul Outstreaming - Rend_Herring - Good Omens - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett [Archive of Our Own]
“Why did you come here?” Aziraphale interrupts. “Why do you keep doing this?” All the saving, he means, all the chasing after Aziraphale he does. It can’t only be that he’s not keen to endure a replacement. That can’t be it, not anymore. He’s going to get himself in trouble, and then it’ll be Aziraphale’s fault.

Crowley’s mouth shuts with a click. He shifts uncomfortably in his seat, reaches for the handle of the fork and taps his fingertips against it before setting his hands in his lap.

When he speaks, it’s very soft. “Don’t you know?” he asks.

Aziraphale, unnaccustomed to his heart refusing to translate why it throbs with such haste, shakes his head.

Through Every Door - darlingred1 - Good Omens (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
What would it hurt, really? It wasn’t like Crowley had anything better on. No more orders, no more quotas, no more Arrangement. Aziraphale would never have to know.

“Wonderful. I’m the demon on my own shoulder.”

And he’d lost his angel, hadn’t he? All he had left were thoughts, memories…fantasies. And he had a very good imagination.

(After thwarting the end of the world, Aziraphale begins to avoid Crowley, and Crowley accidentally awakens his own repressed lust.)

Crowley had always garbed himself like an expensive, Gothically-inclined rent boy; and moreover, Aziraphale had known him for several thousand years and had never known him go anywhere cramped or sweaty unless he was on the job.

There Will Come a Day - KannaOphelia - Good Omens - Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett [Archive of Our Own]
Aziraphale debated internally a bit, but curling his arm up around Crowley’s shoulder really was more comfortable. He knew he was being silly. He knew a dance was nothing and if it made Crowley happy after his feelings had apparently been hurt it wasn’t much to ask, but—it was the demon. He had the literally infernal talent to make even the simplest, least dubious things feel like a temptation. Aziraphale knew it was Crowley's nature, and not strictly saying his fault, but it did sometimes make things feel *complicated*."

Biarritz, South of France, 1921. Aziraphale stumbles into Crowley apparently working the hotels and casinos as a gigolo.

What could possibly go wrong?

The Better Part of Valour - obstinatrix - Good Omens (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Said I, a few weeks ago: "I feel there’s also room for e.g. bedsharing fic where the apocalypse has Not Happened and they’ve fallen into queerplatonic (or so they think) bedsharing and Crowley thinks he’s alone in being driven slowly to distraction by it, so he says nothing. Then one night he wakes when it’s still dark, and at first he doesn’t know why, until he hears Aziraphale’s breathing a little raspier than usual, and feels the very slight trembling of the bed."

And lo, that is exactly what this is.

'I need you to tell me how to find a human willing to have sex with me, and then how to persuade them to actually do it in the least unpleasant way possible for everyone involved. If I don’t manage at least one seduction, I’m going to get recalled back Down There.’

Aziraphale stared at Crowley for a moment. ‘I think…’ he said delicately, ‘that we should have that drink.’

“You’ve spilled a bit of heaven out, there, angel.”
Aziraphale looks down at himself and Crowley watches helplessly: the way most of his eyes turn inward but some turn out, and some look straight into Crowley’s racing black heart and some just look at his face, innocent as you please.
“Oh, dear,” Aziraphale says, only it’s also the blowing of each and every one of Joshua’s trumpets at the walls of Jericho. “I think I’m a bit too drunk.”

Aziraphale saw him sometimes in all-staff meetings, sitting toward the front but off to the side, lounging against a wall. Even then, he’d had style—wings tipped in gold and face painted with gold flakes in the pattern of the first constellation he designed. He was amazing, and eye-catching, and it was no exaggeration to say that he did not know Aziraphale even existed.

He wanted gravlax with dill sauce, and Pappardelle Bolognese, and those awful little iced biscuits they had at Tesco at Christmastime.

The only type of dating geologists are good at is radioactive carbon-dating. The rest goes completely over their heads.

Alfred shifts awkwardly. Looks at Viktor and Yuuri, and asks, “So, uh. Are you guys dating?”

Yuuri greatly misunderstands, and Viktor panics.

Of course we are, Yuuri says. Rather critically, he thinks to himself: why else would he be here, in the scorching, godforsaken heat, surrounded by a hundred kilos of rock, if not for the purpose of radiometric dating?

Despite their age gap and differing social circles, Castiel has struck up a warm friendship with Mary Winchester, a wealthy widowed socialite. When Castiel needs a place to stay, Mary invites him into her house, where there’s loads of spare room. Castiel’s aware that they make an odd pair, but he doesn’t fully realize how things look to outsiders, especially to Mary’s eldest son. All Dean Winchester sees is that his mom has apparently hooked up with a hot young guy (who is totally Dean’s type) and that makes things… weird.

But Dean – Dean who named his car, who keeps a photograph of his mother in his wallet, some thirty-plus years after her death, who still has the crumpled ‘Do Not Disturb’ sign with a sleeping pelican emblazoned on it from the Microtel outside of Roanoke where he first kissed Castiel, clumsy and unsure, under the unsteady fluorescence of an exhausted bathroom bulb – is sentimental.

It puzzles Castiel, where Dean draws the line between what is meaningful and what it is worthless.

true affection - spookyfoot - Yuri!!! on Ice (Anime) [Archive of Our Own]
In the early days of Victor's stay in Hasetsu—when Yuuri's skittishness meant he skirted every one of Victor's touches—Victor had called Chris in tears, asking if Chris thought Yuuri even liked him. After Chris laughed at Victor for a solid ten minutes, he texted Victor a flurry of Youtube links, supercuts of Yuuri's interviews with titles like "My Big Gay Crush: The Katsuki Chronicles, Vol.1, Directors Cut", "Katsuki Yuuri Supercut: A Thirst for the Ages", and "Touch-a Touch-a Touch me: Victor Please Love Yuuri!"

(Victor had even left a comment on the last one to congratulate them on developing psychic abilities. They'd reported him as a spam bot.)

Then Victor had repaid the favor by sending Chris an audio file of fake sex noises that he could play whenever Josef called and Chris didn't feel like talking. Of course, Chris had used Victor's own sex noises against him the last time he'd called too late. As though Victor wouldn't recognize his own moans like some amateur.
The recipe for disaster is four cups of salt, two couples, and one wine train.

Thaw - TroubleIWant - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“I gotta go. Just wanted to warn you.” He doesn’t hang up.

“I love you,” Derek says, fast and hot like he thinks Stiles might cut him off in the middle of it. He’s not wrong.

“That’s nice,” Stiles says, in a tone that implies the opposite. He ends the call.


In which Stiles is an Emissary, Derek is in love with him, and nothing comes as easy as it should.

Turn a Little Faster - skoosiepants - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
He shifts back and forth on his feet and tries to psych himself up. He can do this. He’s a badass werewolf, he can totally tell Stiles that they accidentally got werewolf married because—because Stiles was thinking about him, and happened to give him a token of his, uh, affection under the silvery light of the last full moon. Platonic affection, Derek thinks sourly, so he doesn’t get why his wolf feels all warm and fuzzy and bonded all of a sudden.

Honestly, it’s like—why aren’t people accidentally getting werewolf married all the time, if it happens this easily?

'Till You Make It - standinginanicedress - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Apparently, Derek caught sight of Stiles cradled in his mother's arms as she stared down at the different prices for different brands, pointed a chubby toddler finger in Stiles' direction, and announced, “that's my soulmate.” So the story goes.

Here's the thing. It might be irrefutable fact that Stiles and Derek are soulmates. It would be idiotic and stupid for Stiles to try and deny that he doesn't feel something in regards to Derek, and that Derek doesn't feel something in regards to Stiles. Stiles has never felt the same type of tug towards anyone else that he feels towards Derek, on the rare occasion when the guy isn't being an unbelievable dickwagon, and he highly doubts that he ever will. Fact of the matter is, Derek is it for him.

And that's the entire problem. Because, really and truly, no exaggeration and no holding back, Stiles does not like Derek Hale. He didn't when he was a kid, and he doesn't now. Oh, my God, does he ever not like that motherfucker. Hate feels like a strong word (that's half to do with the fact that every time he used to say as much, his father would take him aside and give him a talking to – so he started to learn to keep that thought, true as it might have been from time to time, to himself), but Christ on a cracker, they do not get along.

Second Chance - Kass - due South [Archive of Our Own]
The day we turned towards Yellowknife, Ray's silence changed.

A reverential silence often descends under the aurora borealis; a contented silence falls after a long day of sledging and a hot meal. This was neither of those.

This was the anticipatory silence of someone waiting to make a declaration, and it struck fear into my heart.

Red Light, Green Light - arrow (esteefee) - due South [Archive of Our Own]
They were back. They were back and, yeah, Ray had thought things would be different somehow, now that they'd spent all that time together, two peas in a polyamide pod with nothing but the dogs and the wind howl to keep them company. But coming back to Chicago had changed things. Ray felt like they were cartoon characters just after the bulldozer treatment, both of them inflating and popping back into their old shapes.

And now they were just partners, again—the best, but still. Somehow he missed something he hadn't realized they'd had out there in the cold.

So—same old, same old. There they were, ducking berserk factory equipment while trying to dodge bullets at the same time, and Fraser got shot in the hat, but it didn't even slow him down, not until the mechanical arm snatched him from the conveyer belt and tried to turn him into a six foot tall garden gnome.

Ray barely shot the off switch in time.

Running With the Wolf - arrow (esteefee) - due South [Archive of Our Own]
He could never keep up in the snow, of course, Diefenbaker's light-paw tread dancing always ahead. But Dief was kind and would slow to let Fraser catch up before he'd burst out again, obviously relishing the sheer joy of cold wind rifling through his fur as he ate up the ground.

At those times, with Fraser's breath an icy burn in his chest, he would experience a deep envy of his four-footed companion and his inherent, wild freedom. Fraser was ever bound, flat-footed, hard-thinking and all too human.

Instinct was always a better guide.

Proof of Life - arrow (esteefee) - due South [Archive of Our Own]
Dear Ray:

I don't know how quickly mail travels between our two points, so I'm not sure if you possibly received my last letter and just didn't wish to respond. But, as I said, you might not want to, and that's fine.

I'm in my new quarters outside of Whitehorse. I can almost see the Alaskan border from here. Dief has been hunting rabbits in the thick snow—a welcome return, I think you'll agree, to his natural state.

Not to get too maudlin, but seeing the beauty here around me, I wish you and I had had an opportunity to have our adventure as we planned. I'm sorry I Well, perhaps some day we will.

an exaltation of larks - llassah - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
There are times when he feels as if they could fall into bed together, easy as breathing. If Stiles were not highborn, if he were an omega without connections, Derek would be sorely tempted. As it is, he resists. Derek wants, he yearns, but he resists. Still, the sight of Stiles in his cot is enough to test him, even now that it is familiar. At the end of each lambing season, he sleeps for a week, worn down by months of hard work, of relentless struggle. He doesn’t know how he’ll feel by the time Stiles leaves, how he’ll feel after long days and longer nights spent resisting the insistent tug of Stiles’s scent and the inclinations of his own foolish heart.

All Derek wants is to get through the lambing season with his body and spirit intact. He had thought that the blizzards would be the main danger, not a highborn omega with beautiful eyes and a stubborn streak.

Talking Back to Vecchio (Photograph, Part One of Two) - spuffyduds - due South [Archive of Our Own]
Ray only has a week after he takes the Vecchio gig before the Canadian's supposed to show back up. And on his first visit to the station Elaine hands him three banker's boxes full of case files and notes, and Welsh says, "These perpetrators have an odd tendency to reappear, so you should have more than a passing familiarity with their history, Detective Vecchio."

Too Far - arrow (esteefee) - due South [Archive of Our Own]
It's not like he hasn't thought it in total exasperation about a million times since they set out to find the Hand of Franklin—in fact, it's pretty much a nightly ritual when he has to shed his damp clothing and shiver into his still-chilly sleeping bag. But for the first time the thought really sinks in—down low in his gut like ice water—and he's suddenly freaking terrified, his heart beating so fast he can hear it like a message of doom—I'm fucked. I'm fucked. I'm fucked.

He's so scared he actually says it out loud, his voice shaky and thin in the cold air. "What the fuck am I doing here?"

He hears a sharp inhale and looks up to see Fraser's face, which for one split second screams guilt before it settles into a mask. But Fraser's breath gives him away in quick bursts of cloudy white. He's breathing too fast. And Ray thinks, he's scared, too.
