He’s got the smile and the chest and the jawline and the hipbones and the tongue that can make you come as easy as it can get you off in a whole other courtroom, but the truth of it is that Jeff Winger is rarely fucked by anyone who doesn’t pity him, and is rarely pitied except by those who see his eyes when he just can’t make it to the finish line, no, not even if you put it there, sorry.

i set a dozen twelve step traps - postcardmystery - due South [Archive of Our Own]
Chicago has a rhythm, because all cities do. A beat cop is— well, that’s self-explanatory. He wears leather and he bleaches his hair and Stella hated it, all of it, hated the way he drops his ‘g’s and swallows his vowels, the fact that she could dress him up nice but he was still a dirty dog in sheep’s clothing, clothing that ain’t never gonna fit.

Chicago has a rhythm, and so does he. He is what he is, and he never drops it once he’s got it. Stella, it turned out, wasn’t so good at keeping time, after all. [772]

guns & drums and guns & drums and the enemy never slew you - postcardmystery - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
“I was under the impression that you were dead,” you say, and Peter Hale isn’t his nephew, doesn’t snarl, does not concede to show you his fangs so early, merely smirks, says, “Who here hasn’t died a few times, between friends?” [592]

ain't nobody fresher than my motherfuckin' clique - postcardmystery - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
“Take your boots off,” says Combeferre, distantly, when Courfeyrac opens the door. Combeferre’s back is to the door, hunched over his desk, the sharp line of his shoulders taut with concentration. Enjolras is sitting in Combeferre’s bed, a book in his hands that has never been studied at any university in Paris. His feet are bare and his hair is, like Courfeyrac’s, a little damp. There is a small bruise at his hairline that echoes a gash down Combeferre’s right calf and a thick red line around Courfeyrac’s left wrist. Paris is restless, and more and more of its street corners rise when their leader makes his call. The back of Courfeyrac’s neck is still wet and his clothes soaked through to the bone, but for one brief, glorious second, he sees the ink under Enjolras’s fingernails and the edge of Combeferre’s smile as he turns his head, just a little, and he is the warmest he has ever been. A second, and then it’s gone.

Or, nine incidents from a life lived in threes. [3511]

but hearts don't break, y'all - postcardmystery - Justified [Archive of Our Own]
“That kid’s dead cause of you and your bullshit,” says Raylan, which is true, in its way, and not, in so many others.

“Men who think themselves instruments of the Lord are deluded, Raylan,” says Boyd, does not finish it with as you well know.

“Be that as it may, that’s a goddamn terrible way to go,” says Raylan and there’s a flicker of his eyes to the left, and Boyd knows what that is, even if Raylan doesn’t. Raylan’s never been afraid of dying. He’s probably not even frightened by the method. [1172]

and that's why they call me [bad company] - postcardmystery - Generation Kill [Archive of Our Own]
“I’m still smarter than you, dude,” he says to Brad, and Brad raises an eloquent eyebrow, but he doesn’t argue, because, yeah, Brad’s smart, but he’s smart enough to know what he’s not. They’re the same, that way, Ray guesses. Smartest guy in the platoon’s a corporal who can’t stop talking with milkshake smeared all over his face, covering scars a coffee maker left wrought on flesh scrubbed red-raw by sun and sand and (carefully ignored) sedition. You couldn’t make this shit up if you fucking tried.


Naive is not a word you could ever apply to Joshua Ray Person, okay. He knew what he signed up for. He knew he was signing in fucking blood. (He knew it was his own.)

But it itched. It itched and he poked at it and scratched at the skin until he saw that blood, felt it beating in his eyes under the baking sun and saw it on the sand of a land so ancient it hurt his head to even think of it, waited every day to die with a placid patience that’d even make the Iceman proud, and then--

--and then, they sent him back home.

Well. They thought they did. [3725]

you burn the bridge, i'll cut the boat in half - postcardmystery - Hannibal (TV), Hannibal Lecter Series - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
"Do not look for my heart any more; the beasts have eaten it."

Ten conversations Will Graham has in prison. ||

“I brought you something to eat,” says Hannibal, “Finger food, of course.”

(He looks a little like he’s laughing at his own joke. Will can empathise.)

"I’d rather have the fork," says Will, with a quick sharp incline of his head that’s a classic side-effect of Chilton’s favoured anti-psychotics.

It’s all performance, of course. Will isn’t taking them and doesn’t need them besides— he’s channelling the urge to do violence into verbal and physical tics that unsettle Chilton enough to throw him off course. There’s a camera pointed directly into his cell, which also explains the fingers that he’s tapping over one kneecap and the occasional stuttering. And the Oscar goes to— [2346]

you can call me caesar - postcardmystery - Justified [Archive of Our Own]
“Believe in me, and you shall never die,” says Boyd Crowder, his right hand moving in the shape of a cross, never quite letting his left hand know, and it’s the first lie of many.

“Believe in you, I’ll do shit else,” says Raylan Givens, his mouth twisting mean and hot, and when Boyd’s breath catches in the back of his throat, it has the sting of something holy to it. [1275]

“Make me a sandwich,” Parker says, so he does.

“Cut the damn wire,” says Hardison, so he does.

“Jump,” says Parker, says Hardison, and he never needs to ask, “How high?” [2158]

that's what they want: a God damned show - postcardmystery - Pacific Rim (2013) [Archive of Our Own]
You needle him because you don’t know how to not. You push him and you keep pushing, and, to your entirely hidden delight, he pushes you right back. He pushes you so hard that your head is spinning, and for the first time in your life you’re scrambling to keep up. It’s never happened to you before, this push-pull of constant snarling, and you love it, you’re drunk on it, you never want it to stop. He hates your tattoos, your t-shirts, that you play The Clash at 3am and that you leave dogeared William Gibson novels all over the lab, regardless of what is beneath them or whether you’re even reading them at the time. He hates you, so thoroughly, so viscerally, that it almost hurts, but he sees you, and when he hates you his hate encompasses all that you are and have the potential to be. [2737]
