Ask Me, I Won't Say No by veganshailseitan
22,616 words | Wednesday Night Trivia Rule 1: The person in charge of choosing the team name will rotate on a weekly basis in alphabetical order. That week’s decider can only be overruled by a unanimous vote from the rest of the team (per the March 2018 addendum).

He lets the group chat know he’s there, checks them in with the Quizmaster as To Be Perfectly Queer, (because he’s at least self-aware at this point in his life) and heads to the bar.
And immediately runs into Eliot.
Thankfully not literally this time.

Or: the one where no one has magic and Quentin and Eliot are just normal thirty-somethings who play on opposing Pub Trivia teams and they get to fall in love like real people dammit.

(this is not a) Temporary Love by rizcriz
20,684 words | There’s a layer of dust coating everything in the cottage, like nobody’s been here since them. A thick white film, almost the perfect representation of what their lives ended up being. He swipes a finger along the counter as he goes, a thin streak left behind, as he marvels at the fact that it’s exactly how they left it — despite never having actually been here. Even the lines along the doorway to the kitchen, where Quentin had insisted on marking Teddy’s height; Eliot pauses here, to press his nail into the tallest mark, a soft smile dancing along his lips at the memory of Quentin pouting when they finally had the proof that Teddy had officially grown taller than him.

He swallows down a lump and moves down the short hallway. The door to the bedroom is closed, and he hesitates for a moment, before reaching out and wrapping his hand around the knob. He freezes, a memory flashing of Quentin.


Or, hey there's actually a use for the vial of blood.

They might go completely insane, but sometimes it takes stepping outside of the life you're living to find the life you want.

Sherlock takes one last look out to the horizon, mouth downturned and brow furrowed, before seeming to shake himself and catching up to John with a few long-legged strides. John turns back toward the path cut into the cliffs, climbing steadily toward the rolling downs already green and lush in the weak April warmth.

They reach the top and Sherlock strikes toward the west, back to where their hired Land Rover sits a mile away in a public carpark. John falls into step beside him and takes a deep breath.

“I expected a case,” he starts. “A bit chilly for a walk, really, so. D’you mind telling me what we’re doing out here?”
Sherlock doesn’t even pause, simply tucks his head down against the wind and continues walking.

He was suspended in the ice for nearly seventy years,” Fury began. Tony nodded along, because he could do math.

“I’m sure he has a lot of adjusting to do—“ Tony started.

What Lies Inside by Penumbren
21,808 words | When the Avengers discover Captain America in the Arctic sea, they find more than just a new team member: Tony Stark discovers his fated mate. The problem is, Steve Rogers is a man out of his own time and apparently straight, and Tony's not about to force anything on the man he loves--even if it means his own death. Besides, Tony's spent his entire life keeping secrets. How can he possibly tell Steve that he's really Iron Man, let alone a werewolf?

But Loving Him Is Red by theappleppielifestyle
25,524 words | "It is- it is not just destined, Steve Rogers. It will reach through the decades, through entire universes if it has to. It will scour the galaxies without rest until the two of you are standing next to each other. Migardians-

Migardians call them soulmates, I believe."


Through the decades, through layers of realities, through superheroes and tangles of string- it will always be them.

the reason you ruminate the shadowy past by Mizzy
20,846 words | So, Captain America effectively manages to cockblock Tony for a year.

It's not Steve's fault. Well, actually, it is. But he was just proving a point - that if a superhero is gay, how can it be wrong? Steve just picked the wrong superhero to make the point with. Now America will think they're dating - and Tony's not going to be the guy to break Captain America's heart.

There's only one way out. To save face, Steve and Tony have to become fake boyfriends. Steve thinks the "boyfriends" bit will be the hardest to act... but maybe it's the "fake" part that will be the hardest act of all...

|| OTP's kid time-travels to the past is one of my FAVORITE tropes. This was a delight to read, so much fun!

The Six Steps of Courtship by emptycel
28,504 words | Sherlock doesn't hold any love for his omega status. However, that doesn't stop him from going undercover and joining on online dating site to try and find the person responsible for a string of vicious omega homicides.

It should have been easy, open and shut.

He just didn't expect to meet an alpha named John Watson.

And enter the six steps of courtship.

|| This was great! Cute and fun, and the banter was lovely. Lots of thoughts about what they each truly want, and lots of consent given (and double-checks for consent), so there was no abo squickiness for me.

20,307 words | The last thing Stiles expects when he walks into Lydia’s exclusive S&M club is to rescue a sub who’s obviously been mistreated for a long time. His name is Derek, and when he awkwardly reaches out, asking Stiles to be his Dom, the urge to shield Derek from more pain is too strong for Stiles to resist. But Derek is still recovering from his past and learning how to set boundaries, so they have to take things slow.

You're On the Air by prettysailorsoldier
20,616 words | The Consulting Detective and The Woman dominate the airwaves of their university radio station, doling out advice on everything from meeting the parents to sexual positions. When their ratings start to dip before the holidays, however, manager Mike thinks it's time for some fresh blood, and who better to fill in the gaps than rugby captain--and notorious flirt--John Watson?

[From Prompt: Matchmaker!Sherlock & Assistant!John. Sherlock keeps John as his assistant since he knows a few things about love/sex that Sherlock doesn't know/fully understand (Three Continents Watson) and that could lead to possible matches since Sherlock only uses chemical and natural body reactions to determine who to match-make and so on (pupils dilate, quick heartbeat, body language...). - anon]

|| Soooooo good. The flirting is wonderful, the slightly younger slightly more innocent version of these boys is lovely, and I found the radio bits actually really interesting. Some great mutual pining in a really wonderfully fluffy flirty banter-y way. Also features an awesome Irene and Mike.

28,130 words | He’s decided to just be himself, cliché as it sounds. The lie about being Sherlock’s mate will be difficult enough to keep up, he’s not going to think up more of a charade regarding himself on top of that.

If he uses the wrong fork at dinner, fine. If someone calls him on it, he’ll just stab them with it. Job done.

The Sexual Awakening of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson by suitesamba
24,579 words | Sherlock owes Mycroft a favor. Mycroft calls in that favor by offering Sherlock's consulting services in a charity auction. Sherlock and John soon find themselves at the country manor of Mrs. Ives-Patton Smarmington III - not very coincidentally a long-time friend of Sherlock's mother - where they are reluctant participants in her Murder Mystery Weekend. It's a play within a play for Sherlock and John, and their roles for the weekend event bleed over into their real lives, waking the sleeping dragons within.


In which John learns that Sherlock owing Mycroft a favor is very suspect, and Sherlock has a very bad idea.

What's more, John refuses to forgive him, and Sherlock doesn't understand why.

Five times Sherlock read John's mind and one time John read his instead.
