25,984 words | “I… feel something for you.”

It's vague, but it's a start.

“Um, something? Like… a general disdain, or...?”

Patrick laughs. “Uh, nope. Kind of the opposite of that.”

An AU where Patrick tells David upfront that he's developing feelings for him, in the interest of being honest as they go into business together.

Hear Your Heart Sing (Love, Love, Love) by schweet_heart
15,834 words | Merlin used to like the idea of finding The One – until he fell in love with Arthur Pendragon. Now he has a boss he can't date (but can't stop thinking about), a soulmate he can't find (who has terrible taste in music), and a best friend who can't believe he still hasn't got his act together (even though it's seriously not his fault).

Sometimes, life is unfairly complicated, even without your soulmate singing painfully catchy tunes in the back of your head.

Identity Theft by Rizandace [part of the Magic Curses series]
32,001 words | "Um, Marina," Brown-Eyes said. He sounded so polite. It was endearing. "Can you tell us who the hell we are? Give us something to go off of here? None of us are carrying ID or anything."

Marina gave a dramatic, heaving sigh, looking up to the ceiling as if asking for strength. "Okay, this is gonna be low-key humiliating for me, because I mostly pretend I don't care enough about you chuckle-fucks to remember your names, but, I can see how the situation might get confusing if we let you all go around without knowing. So."
A man wakes up in a warehouse with six strangers, and no idea who he is. He takes one look at the floppy-haired, brown-eyed man next to him, and falls in love.

|| Eliot and Q are married, but of course because of plot reasons they both (along with most of the rest of their magicians group) lose their memories, and can't quite figure out if the pull they're feeling towards each other is real or not. Cue the achingly lovely pining, angst, Eliot's issues, etc.

Arthur hears rumors of something going on between Merlin and Morgana and isn't pleased.

To Merlin, it just seems like the prince is determined to monopolize his thoughts- as if he didn't already. With even more secrets to keep, Merlin is glad he knows how to juggle.

Quentin's favorite customer (or, his most frustrating one) is a courier named Eliot Waugh, who has a penchant for flirtation and some odd quirks about his wings. Eliot's got a new mission to take a package to Loria and he comes to Quentin for a pre-job check-up.

this year's love had better last by wearealltalesintheend
5,726 words | “Quentin Coldwater?” Eliot asks, just to be sure, just to catch his attention and hold it forever, possibly, just to fill out the air buzzing around them.

Quentin nods, mumbling an incoherent string of sounds.

“I’m Eliot,” he says, and puts out his cigarette, drops down from the school sign. “You’re late.”

Under his assessing gaze, Quentin is obliviously still looking around, and Eliot finds his lost lamb-ness strangely endearing.

This year just might turn out to be interesting, after all.


or, the one where Fillory isn't real and a world of problems is avoided, Quentin still finds his way to Brakebills, Eliot still falls in love. Destiny is bullshit, but some things are constants.

Tony woke up in a cave in Afghanistan with a hole in his chest and wires coming out of it and felt his blood run cold. He knew instinctively what it meant. He’d lost his ability to produce a soul-light. And so no matter how much he yearned for it in the secret, hidden corners of his heart, Tony would never find his soulmate.

I Am With You by dirigibleplumbing
25,675 words | After moving into Avengers Tower, Steve has different ways of connecting with his past and figuring out his present. He writes letters to Bucky, he visits Peggy, and he writes to a Peggy who no longer exists. One day his box of mementos from the 30’s and 40’s appears by his door, all the better to help him remember good times in his life. Meanwhile, his team keeps seeking him out to spend time with him outside of missions—especially Tony Stark.

Steve works to reconcile his memories of the past with his life in the present, to figure out what he wants, what makes him happy, and how he can help make the people he’s coming to care for happy, too.

|| Really good fic focused on avengers team bonding and Steve adjusting to the new century.

He just needed to avoid getting caught, which was a lot more complicated when New York was under attack. What Steve needed was a quick disguise so that he could help without being recognized...

19,338 words | He can’t help it, he scowls. “Wow. You know, for some Jiminy Cricket, moral compass bullshit, you’re kind of rude.”

That pulls a sputtering noise out of her, the noise distinctly disbelieving. “You think I’m your conscience?”

Bellamy’s pretty sure that hearing voices in his head is bad enough, let alone the fact that it’s coming from his supposed soulmate. (Or, a bellarke soulmates au, basically.)

You're Cool On The Internet, At Least by prosciutto
9,390 words | Look, Clarke will not dwell on this. She will not get flustered just because a possibly cute guy on Facebook apparently shares her views on what constitutes a terrible person.

Ten minutes later, her phone gives a short, irritated buzz; startling her enough that she jumps.

Biting at the inside of her cheek, she allows herself a quick peek.

Friend request from Bellamy Blake.

Clarke has no idea how she manages to develop a crush on a guy who won’t stop fighting everyone on Facebook, but here they are.

(Or: Clarke meets Bellamy on Facebook. They hit it off.)

"finally kiss the bloody idiot" by Salambo06
29,812 words | Inspired by a fic idea on tumblr : "John and Sherlock know the Yard has a pool going for when they’re finally going to get together. It’s been running forever, and it’s worth thousands of pounds. It’s all fun and games, hahaha, until they find out Lestrade is in dire financial straits (dog needs emergency surgery, he’s putting his kid through gymnastics training, I don’t know, something), and they decide to fake a relationship to win the pool for him. Sherlock figures out the day and way that Lestrade thinks it’s going to happen, and they act it out. It’s all for a good cause, fake relationship style, until it’s not."

36,153 words | Clara's American father is the ambassador to some such territory that Great Britain probably used to own, but she (and Harry’s undying love for her) is the reason John is getting on a flight at 12:30pm, flying across the second largest ocean in the world, and pretending to be in a perfectly happy, healthy relationship with an undoubtedly perfectly coiffed stranger.

See, Clara is not only American (and wealthy to boot), she's also best friends with John’s ex-fiancee. Whom she's placed in the wedding party. As Maid of Honor.

And John just happens to be Best Man.

A Brand of Gold by aquabelacqua
What am I doing? he wondered. The answer came back at once:

He sank deeper into the pillows, let the mist and blur of the wine settle around him, let it shore up his nerves and dim the warning signals that flashed dully in the back of his mind. He let the rest of the disappointment about Lucy and his strange accommodations and about the weekend as a whole fade into obscurity. He let the vital, missing piece snap into place as surely and as cleanly as if it had always been there.

He was flirting with Sherlock Holmes.
