Sometimes, everything is shitty, and terrible, really terrible, and irredeemable enough that you just have to cry until there aren't any tears left. Is it weird that you want Scanlan Shorthalt to be there when that happens?

Pike works as an EMT on a particularly rough shift. [3874]

been living in the fast lane - arahir - Voltron: Legendary Defender [Archive of Our Own]
Keith takes the ride of his life. Shiro loses his mind. [8482]
As they watch, the timer flips from 7:00 to 6:59, seconds flicking by. "We've got a bomb," Keith reports over the general radio as calmly as he can.

There's a beat before Pidge responds, cool as ever. "Ok. Bomb squad is en route. ETA is ten minutes."

"Uh yeah, so that might be a problem." Hunk offers, diplomatically.

Sometimes It Takes a Village - Hazel_Athena - The Magnificent Seven (2016) [Archive of Our Own]
In which Faraday thinks he's a man on a mission, but really he needs to just get over himself and go after what he wants. [6028]
Unlike his first several targets, Faraday knows better than approaching the next one at home. He also knows better than to show up without some kind of bribery, which is why he walks into the mechanic’s garage carrying a tray of coffee and a bag of chocolate donuts.

“Huh,” says Red as he rolls himself out from beneath the truck he’s working on. “None of the others mentioned getting treats when you came calling.”

“That ‘cause none of the others are liable to break my face for asking them to get involved in my personal shit.”

Red just cocks a knowing eyebrow at him.

“Okay, except for Billy,” Faraday acknowledges. “But that was why I made sure Goodnight was there when I got his opinion.”

Blood, Coffee, & Motor Oil - underwater_owl - Mad Max Series (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
A coffee shop AU. Except more complicated. A small town setting, Furiosa is the local mechanic, too much a black sheep in town to be having the easiest time of it. Max is working the local coffee shop, for something to do and a soft place to land while he recovers from raging PTSD incurred during his police work, and Citadel, Australia, is about as small and sleepy a place as it's possible to get, right? The Wives are the residents of a rather discretely run home for abused women that Furiosa supers for when she isn't in her shop. The lesbian separatist feminist motorcycle gang is literally just that.

This is a love story, hinged around a missing person, a suspected homicide, a broken carburetor, and a mutual disdain for pretentious coffee. [41,100]

Thirty-Eight Days and Counting - thecommodore_squid - Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
It didn’t escape him that Steve shared his assumed last name. “Are you gonna be my cousin?” Bucky asked dully.

Steve frowned. “Husband, actually,” he said easily, holding up his left hand to show a typical golden band.

Bucky scowled and closed the door.

AKA
An AU in which Bucky is put in the witness protection program and Steve is the agent hired to protect him/pretend to be his husband. [40,292]

[Honestly, I really loved this. Bucky and Steve are both broken in their own ways, and they don't have a life-long friendship to fall back on. Also, the way they're both so excited about successfully getting through social interactions with the so-called 'normal' people on their block made me just about die laughing.]

Love Is for Suckers - Potrix - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Life isn’t a fairytale, Bucky isn’t the roguish yet lovable protagonist, and Tony definitely isn’t his Prince Charming.

No, in reality, Bucky takes his clothes off for money, and Tony is just another customer. The fact that they keep falling into bed together proves nothing, and a candle in the middle of the table doesn’t automatically make a dinner a date.

Bucky doesn’t get that lucky, this isn’t some cheesy rom-com, and real life doesn’t work like that.

Right? [17,201]

Wilton's Bakery - machine_dove, Sproings - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
After an accident leaves him injured and unable to perform, Clint Barton's life seems bleak. Things start to change after he meets the strangest man by accident (and he was in the circus, Clint knows strange). Sometimes life's a trial, and sometimes you just have to hold on and hope you survive the ride. [9622] [Cliche, but hella entertaining.]
“GODDAMIT WADE, WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS SHIT?!” Clint was waving around the paper-wrapped...thing he found in the walk-in. It was...squishy. And the smell was indescribable, which was really saying something considering he had spent most of his life living in close quarters with animals and people who thought personal hygiene was a suggestion and not a requirement.

“My haggis!” He sounded delighted.

“Why the fuck do we have haggis in a bakery?”

“Haggis doesn’t need a reason, Clint. Haggis just is.”

It said a lot about what his life had become, Clint thought, that this somehow made perfect sense.

criminals do it better - blackkat - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
Obito snatches up the abandoned bottle, jogs three steps, and hurls it with all the force he can manage at the back of the white-haired litterer’s head, snarling, “Hey, asshole! It’s called recycling!” [23,772 words in the series so far] Why did it take me so long to read this?! I *adore* it.]
“Oh my god, why do you let me talk?” Kakashi groans, face-down on Asuma’s coffee table. There's a drink in his hand, but it isn’t nearly big enough to make him forget the humiliating mortification of three hours ago. “Oh my god, why do you let me out in public?”

“Ten years since high school and I'm still trying to work that out,” Genma says amusedly from where he’s lounging on the couch, because he’s unrepentantly a bastard and definitely not one of Kakashi's friends in any way, shape, or form. “So, were they hot?”

Kakashi thinks of sharp-edged black eyes full of life, shaggy black hair against pale skin, a leanly muscular body, an angular face filled with righteous indignation and then familial fondness in turns, and glumly agrees, “The hottest.”

“And they hate you now?” Genma wants to know. (He’s merciless, and Kakashi can't remember why he even vaguely likes him.)

Kakashi moans his agreement, not having the strength to so much as lift his head. Damn it, the guy was amazing. Gorgeous, passionate, funny, clever…and Kakashi, of course, had to open his big fat mouth and shove his foot all the way in. Fuck.

“What are we talking about?” Asuma takes a seat in the recliner, dropping a platter of chips and dip on the table to the left of Kakashi's ear.

Genma, of course, grins. “Kakashi's complete inability to interact with the rest of the population,” he says without an ounce of remorse, passing Asuma the bottle of scotch.

[Um. Ouch.

"We're partners," Max says, shrugging even as Furiosa keeps her stare and hands on him, "Where you go, I go."

Furiosa awards herself a moment to process that, then proceeds, as passionate as Max has ever seen her.

"If we're doing this thing, we're doing it all the way. You understand? We don't back down until we leave with them. No matter what."

No matter what. That threatening promise resounds off of the tiles, echoing through the empty room with its gravity. Max merely renews his vows.

When people tell you to be wary not to pick up strays they usually refer to puppies and kittens, not gangly, hyperactive seventeen-year-olds with bright blue eyes and infectious smiles, but Carlos thinks that they should.

Locker Room Therapy - Asuka Kureru (Askerian) - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
He's never going to know the truth. Minato and Kyuubi are identical twins. There's absolutely no way to prove which one of the two actually fathered him.

(Apart from taking Kyuubi at his word, but Kyuubi lies. Naruto knows that Kyuubi lies.)

It's sordid, is what it is. And that's why he'd rather think about Sasuke punching him, kissing him. It's weird, but at least it's normal-weird. His-life-weird. It's not waking up handcuffed to a lead pipe and being held down as a psycho with his father's face calls him "my son" and carves into his cheeks. [6726]

Peter flopped down on the bed, inserted his face into his pillow, and stopped breathing in what was obviously an attempt to asphyxiate himself via cushiony comforts. When that inevitably failed, he screeched something that could have been “FLY BY STARBUCKS” or, just as likely, “MY LIFE SUCKS”, which was just too bad.

"I find that highly unlikely." The man said witheringly, drawing the cup of water closer so he could rip open the tea packet with a disdainful look and leave it to steep.

"Try me." Newt jutted out his jaw in challenge.

"Doctor Hermann Gottlieb, if you must know." He said with a sigh. "Though I do not believe that one such as yourself-"

"Holy sh-," Newt cut him off, stunned. It had been fifteen years since he'd sent the last letter. Fifteen years since Hermann had stopped writing back. "I've, uh, I've read all your work. It's the tits." Newt tried to play it cool; he'd gotten over that years ago. Really, he had. [72,228]

It’s ludicrous to run away from home at twenty. It’s not even running away anymore. He had a car and enough money to keep him in shitty motel rooms. Even most of a college degree that would get him in the door of less self-respecting businesses.

Anyone else would have said he finally got his head on straight and moved out.

But Gabriel knew better. He’d run away as surely as he had at seven with his G.I. Joe suitcase rattling along next to him on the sidewalk. [3982]

Modern AU in which Thorin is a busy businessman who one day is informed that his sister and her husband died in an accident and he is the only one who can take care of his nephews.

He loves them with all his heart, but Fili and Kili (6 and 4 respectively) are a handful at the best of times (these are certainly not the best) and he has a company to run and there's only so many times a man can bring his boys to play at the building site. His workers/friends try to help him out and god bless him he IS trying, but it's not going well.

Until one day Thorin's new next door neighbor knocks on the door to borrow something/use a phone/whateva and sees the pandemonium that is Thorin trying to get Kili to eat his oatmeal - and steps in without much ado, showing the man how it's done. Poor Bilbo doesn't even suspect that this day marked him as a perfect future babysitter/ a gift from heavens for the Oakenshield family.

teh_helenables: Faith and Deeds
The Miltons own a haphazard produce store, and Mary Winchester is their most frequent customer. |||

Lunch is ready by the time Dean gets back. He plops into a chair and sets two squash plants on the corner of the table before digging in.

“Oh, Dean,” Mary says, surprised. She’s pleased that Dean had bought her two additions for the garden, but fairly surprised; he knows that she’d bought a packet of squash seeds already. “You didn’t have to.”

“I didn’t,” Dean replies, taking a big bite of his sandwich. “One of the owners gave ‘em to me when he was helping me find the manure. He said they were just shipped in this morning and I had to try ‘em. We can put them next to the bell peppers, if you want.”

“Gabriel gave you free seedlings?” Mary asks, trying to picture the scene. Gabe doesn’t really handle customers so much as maintenance and displays, but Mary can sort of imagine it, if she stretches her mind. Maybe he’s in a good mood today, or they’re overstocked. Even with Cas’ iron-tight spreadsheets, Milton’s does overstock on occasion.

“Didn’t catch his name,” Dean apologizes. “It mighta been Gabriel. He had dark hair, sort of nerdy? Carried a clipboard like a shield.”

Cas.

Cas, who monitors their profits and losses like a stock broker, gave Dean two plants as a *gift*. [6866] [Oh, this is the most adorable story ever. Love blossoms everywhere, even in small, dirt-poor towns. The economic element of this fic was so honest and, quite frankly, refreshing. Also, DEAN AND CAS MEET OVER MANURE, OKAY.

I actually kinda liked the ending, because it left plenty of room for me to imagine more shenaniganery down the road. :D]

Yards: We Go The Extra Mile! - flawedamythyst - Sherlock (TV), Sherlock Holmes & Related Fandoms [Archive of Our Own]
“Sherlock, you have to be polite to the customers,” said Lestrade for what had to be at least the thousandth time.

Sherlock was the best warehouse manager Lestrade had ever known. He knew precisely how much of everything was going to be sold, managing to factor in the weather, holidays and events, current fads and all kinds of other details, so that his orders were almost always just about perfect. Lestrade was the envy of the other managers for how well-organised his warehouse was, with no stacks of over-ordered stock and very few gaps on the shopfloor. Of course, the balance was Sherlock's attitude. No one envied him that.

“I was polite!” said Sherlock. “I politely suggested a trip to the opticians might be necessary, if she couldn't see the sign.” [1995]

literen: Of kittens and teacups and love
Maybe Erik has thought about it, once or twice, very quietly because Charles and his uncanny mind-reading skills are not to be underestimated. He's thought about telling Charles that he's maybe perhaps a little bit sort of in love with him but he's never actually done anything because it seems like an epically bad idea. Charles is the best thing that's ever happened to him, despite the cats and the bad tea addiction and the fact that he drags Erik to watch bad movies just so they can fling popcorn at the screen together. Erik doesn't want to risk all of that by making things between them awkward with some ill-timed confession. And, even if Charles went all teary-eyed and said 'I've loved you since I laid eyes on you, my friend, let's get married and live in my ridiculously big family mansion and run a kitten orphanage', then what?

temperance_k: Desperate Measures
Prompt: The inhabitants of Charles' estate (Charles, his conniving younger sister Raven, his adorable but mischievous adopted children, and their live-in handyman Erik) have been growing restless. To keep the children from destroying everything in sight, Charles comes up with a scavenger hunt of sorts. The objective? To find his "heart" (which is actually a heart-shaped photo of everyone).

The children are obviously distraught to learn that Charles' heart has been "stolen" and are more than willing to search every last inch of the property to reclaim it. When they finally do, they are quite confused to find a chunk of it missing.

Unbeknownst to Charles, Raven decided to play matchmaker instead of just hiding the heart, sick of all the sexual tension between him and Erik. She cut out the little portion of the photo with Charles and Erik in it and delivered it to Erik. (Bonus if Erik is horribly confused.)

pidgeoned: the hazards of love
There were rumours going around of a new attending transplanted from England.

Last Erik heard, the attending had telepathic abilities and could bend spoons with his mind, but the nurses on the third floor were unreliable, especially when it came to performing a lavage, so he took what they said with a grain of salt.

He didn’t usually entertain gossip, but would overhear certain things from time to time: 'Do you think he’s single?' or 'I heard he was filthy rich'. Once, he’d caught a glassy-eyed intern muttering to herself, 'his hair smells like lilacs'.

Admittedly, Erik was intrigued, but not enough that he would go out of his way to press for real information. The rumours would die down eventually, that much he knew from experience. [6500]

In the madhouse, what Clay likes to describe as the worst eight months of his life: they drugged him up and once in a while someone came in to ask him if he still felt the need to tear people to shreds. Not in so many words, but Clay's smart. He's been around. They can ask their questions, and he can answer them, and everyone can pretend that he's going to get better someday. That they'll let him go someday.

And then there was the kid who wouldn't stop talking about government conspiracies; who wouldn't stop talking, period. Obsessive compulsive. Paranoid. Clay bribed someone to read his file. Couldn't figure out why a boy without a trail of bodies behind him was even in here to begin with. But then again, not like Clay had ever been convicted of anything.

The kid said "Hey," one day. Popped up like a jack-in-the-box, waved his fingers into Clay's face. "Hey, you. You're the guy. You're the one, right." [1875]

"Arthur, I know you're too much of a consummate professional and love me too well to ever be that petty," she coos at him, and presses a kiss to his cheek before dropping a dollar in the sexual harassment jar and darting off back to the design bloc, where graphics and photo and layout have hogged every window with natural light claiming somehow that they need them for work.
