4,265 words | “I’m,” he starts, and then doesn’t know how to finish. “I don’t know what’s happening here,” he says instead.

Tony’s mouth does a funny little jump at one corner. “Yeah, I’m starting to get that,” he says, and puts on the smile Steve’s seen on the news. It doesn’t fit with the usual smiles Tony gives him and it’s enough to set Steve even more on edge than he already is.

“It was me asking you out,” Tony says. “Just so you know.”

2,353 words | "What kind of name was 'Quentin Coldwater' anyway? It sounded like something from a cheesy superhero show or more likely, based on the wording in the ad, someone from a fringe religious cult. Still, desperate times were definitely upon him and so, even if Eliot technically didn't meet, well, literally any of the requirements Quentin had listed... he could hopefully fake it long enough to secure whatever tiny side room Quentin was renting out so cheaply."

4,271 words | Quentin has known Eliot for seven months when it occurs to him: he’s got no idea what Eliot’s major is.

“I don’t know why you don’t just ask him,” Julia says over her paper cup, shrugging, “if you’re so curious, just ask him it’s not like it’s some state secret.”

“I can’t, Jules, you know I can’t,” he cries, setting his own coffee down with a little more force than necessary. “It’s too late now, we’re way past this shit. It’s gonna be weird if I bring it up now.”

or, the one that Quentin is on a mission to figure out what Eliot's major is and gets a few other answers along the way.

Eliot, who is currently maintaining a plank pose, blinks over to Quentin and grins. “It’s totally fine,” he shifts out of it, moving into a sitting position to grab his water bottle, “I thought you had class until later.”

"The fire is right over there," he said, resisting the urge to nod or point or wave his arms, well aware that his faux cheeriness came out sounding a little closer to panic and oh god, was he panicking? "In the approximate size and shape of Eliot fucking Waugh."

Somehow, he'd still expected surprise. The sheepish look he got instead was just too much. "Right. That."

It's Julia's wedding day, and apparently no one bothered to tell Quentin that his high school boyfriend that he hadn't seen in ten years was going to be there. Quentin is fine.

Fire Up the Barbie by Chash
5,538 words | Clarke is not and never has been someone who grills. Neither are any of her friends. But they have a new house, a new grill, and a weirdly over-invested landlord.

So apparently they need someone to grill for them.

And Catch You If You Should Fall by Chash
4,286 words | Clarke has what she calls a "minor medical issue" and needs someone to make sure she doesn't die in her sleep. Of course she calls Bellamy. Of course he says he'll do it.

That Hashtag Wants Me Dead by Chash
7,189 words | The first time Ark did awards, Bellamy was in there as a joke, the no-name actor who happened to know the people who ran the website. The second time, five years later, he's in on his own merits, and it's basically awesome, aside from the weird interaction of his competitiveness with his unresolved feelings for Clarke.

But aside from that, yeah. Everything's great.

I Turn My Feelings On by Chash
7,704 words | When Monty asked Clarke and Bellamy how they knew they were bi, he was expecting some help with his own sexuality crisis. He wasn't really expecting Bellamy to say he did a porno with his best friend. It's a lot to take in even before he finds out said best friend still does porn. And is really hot.

Sent and Delivered by clarkescrusade (alindy)
12,509 words | Clarke is pretty sure Bellamy is the hottest lyft driver she’s ever had, and it certainly doesn’t hurt that he’s a pretty great conversationalist, too. When she finds out him and Raven used to work together, it feels natural to become friends. She just never thought they’d get along quite so well, or that their lives would come together so easily, or that she’d fall madly in love with him. But that’s life.

aka: a social media au incorporating text messages, snapchats, tweets, and instagrams that definitely no one asked for.

I Think You're Cute by caramelle
10,057 words | On second thought, Bellamy should probably have thought to check in with his sister before becoming Instagram buddies with her new roommate.

In his defence, he hadn't been entirely sure what 'Follow' actually meant. He'd genuinely thought it was just like some kind of vague, subscription type thing, like when you hit 'Accept' on one of Groupon's numerous attempts to send you updates on the latest offers.

It's only when Clarke Griffin actually follows him back that he realises the gravity of what he's done.





Or, the one where Bellamy and Clarke meet on Instagram.

You Hurt But Learn by Chash
2,853 words | Once she and Bellamy became actual friends, Clarke got a lot better at not having fights with him. Which just makes it all the more annoying when she does, because she doesn't know what to do about it. Especially when Bellamy's solution is to just drop off the face of the earth.

Luckily, Raven's got their backs.

Take Me Out to Dinner Like You Did Last Week by Chash
3,670 words | Bellamy knows that people assume he and Clarke are dating. It happens all the time. He's used to it.

What he's not expecting is, first, to see her at the gaming store where Miller is running his new D&D game, and, second, to have everyone in there think he's dating her. Because she told them.

When One Falls In, Another Can't Get Out by Chash
8,714 words | When Clarke was eighteen, she got pregnant and derailed her life. And she doesn't mind where she ended up. She loves where she ended up. It's just not how she thought it would be.

Look How Far We Have Come by Chash
10,495 words | After Clarke's father dies, she decides she wants to use the money he left her to do some good. Fostering older kids seems like a good place to start.

Her first one would be complicated even if she didn't come with an overprotective older brother trying to get custody back. But it could be worse.

5,927 words | Bellamy is just trying to find some stupid Pokemon. That's all he wants to do. But he ends up stumbling across a bunch of orphaned kittens, and it's not like he can just leave them. He's not a monster.

And it's not like he knew his sister wanted to set him up with her vet.

No One Can Lift the Damn Thing by Chash
13,649 words | Bellamy's pretty sure he only gets invited to Finn's wedding because he's kind of famous now, because it's not like Finn actually liked him at college. But he does miss his friends, so he figures he might as well go.

Then he finds out Clarke wasn't actually invited, and he has to invite her. It wouldn't be any fun, without Clarke.

Oh How Happy We'll Be by Chash
8,728 words | Clarke says yes when Octavia asks if her brother can come on their post-graduation beach trip, mostly because she assumes he won't actually want to. After all, it's not like they're actually friends. He's got to have something better to do.

So of course, he doesn't, and suddenly she's on vacation with Bellamy Blake.

Some Cheese With That Whine by Chash
3,438 words | Clarke figures if she's going on bad dates all the time anyway, she might as well go to the restaurant where Bellamy works, so he can witness the badness. Bellamy's fine with that, so long as he never has to witness a date that goes well.

Luckily, Clarke's mom only ever seems to set her up with douchebags, so he thinks he's pretty safe.

Believe Me, There's a Better Frankenstein For You To Bride by Chash
14,646 words | Two weeks before her wedding, Clarke finds out her fiance is cheating on her. Weirdly, it wouldn't be that much of a problem, except that it's her job to give people relationship advice, and screwing up her own relationship this hard could reflect poorly on her.

So she figures she can just marry someone else. That works, right?

8,614 words | Clarke has always been aware of Bellamy, name traced in black ink on both wrists. But it isn't until she gets older that she realizes she didn't just get a soulmate - she got her worst enemy, too.

*

Based on a tumblr post: "Your enemy's name is on one wrist and your soulmate on the other. Hope it's not the same name on both wrists."

6,604 words | The first thing you need to know about Bellamy Blake is that he's in love with his best friend, Clarke Griffin. The second thing is that he can't stop himself from doing anything to make her happy. Even if that means posing as her boyfriend at her ex-girlfriend's wedding.

He should have known better.
