Average Avengers Local Chapter 7 of New York City - hetrez - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Steve and Tony accidentally start a national do-gooders association and fall in love.


Steve says, "I want to encourage all the business owners in New York City to use union labor instead of non-union whenever they have the opportunity. It's the right thing to do." He sounds like an election platform.

Someone at the back of the audience pipes up. "The right thing gets really boring after a while," the guy says, and Steve gets this look on his face, the one that always makes Tony ashamed of eating the last slice of bread without buying a new loaf.

"You’re wrong," he says in his heavy, calm Captain voice. "The right thing is always the scariest, and the weirdest, and the saddest thing you'll ever have to do. If you're bored, it's because you've stopped doing it and you didn't even notice." [9160]

[Not even kidding, this fic made me cry a little, and also made me feel like a heel for it having been almost a decade since I was a regular volunteer. This is one of those stories that you just need to let sit and percolate in your brain for a bit after you read it. If it has no affect on you, you may not have feelings; just sayin'.]

An Avalanche Of Detour Signs - gyzym - Sherlock (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
In which Molly Hooper gets a job, gets a degree, breaks a heart, has her heart broken, falls in love, keeps a secret, saves a life, runs a morgue, falls apart, pulls it together, and finds exactly what she didn't know she was looking for--not necessarily in that order. [56,053]

[Possibly the *best* Sherlock fic I have ever read. Molly is just such a fully realized character, I fell in love with her right off the bat, and her relationships with the other characters alternated between making me grin like a loon and just sob in utter misery on her behalf. Once I started reading I went right through to the end; I couldn't stop.]

buffyaddict13: The Easy Men
* * * AN IMPORTANT FACT: * * *
Each man (or woman) has his own color when he dies.
I watch the sky when they pass to see which color is waiting.

These colors are my distraction, my salvation in a job that never ends. I suck each taffy sunset; I lick each lemon dawn. I savor the darkness between them.

When a man from Easy Company died, he had his own color. But together, as a unit, the men shone silver. Those men were the exact shade of a perfectly still lake, of a full moon. They were the color Hans Hubermann’s eyes. They were the color of a dented cup, shared between soldiers. They were the color of wings on a jacket. Of a broken spoon. [~4000] [I am not ashamed to admit that this fic made me cry. And I don't mean like a Single Solitary Tear, I mean like bawling like a toddler who just discovered gravity by falling down the stairs. This is absolutely beautiful; A++, highly recommended.]

mahoni: A Gentleman's Agreement
Brian buys and sells unicorns and bicorns for the titled and wealthy. When Bob's stepfather defaults on a debt he owes Brian, he uses Bob as barter to pay the debt off. Brian and Bob agree that their arrangement will be a marriage on paper only, that Bob will run Brian's stables and the relationship will remain strictly professional. But despite Bob's trust issues and Brian's propensity for drinking a lot instead of dealing with how he feels, their mutual affection for Brian's horses breaks down the walls between them. With a little help from Brian's friends and his possessed house, they begin to fall in love. [~56,000]

prettykitty_aya: a sensation of falling
Spencer has grown up with three boys through dreams that cross time.

There's Ryan, the son of an earl, more concerned with horses and reading than rules and regulations of Society. Brendon, abandoned as a young boy and taken under the wing of all the freaks and creeps of the traveling circus L'Elephant D'or. And finally Jon, a farmer's son growing up in a country on the brink of a civil war. However, after a particularly emotional event just as he's set to enter college, Spencer withdraws, shutting his dreams and thus his friends, far away.

Only time doesn't really seem to want to play Spencer's game. [~30,000 words of gut-wrenching, heart-rending perfection. I seriously wanted to cry through the whole thing, and then the ending was just so perfect that I actually teared up. RECOMMENDED!]

Dean learned to play the piano at his mother’s knee. Now, fifteen years after her death, his talent for music is a secret he keeps from everybody, especially his father. Stuck in a small town for the rest of the school year, looking after a brother who’s growing apart from him and training for a future of hunting that he’s not sure that he wants, Dean finds an unlikely confidant in an elderly Jewish man who’s haunted by his own secrets. It’s a year of firsts, hunting alone and falling in love, but when a monster from the tragic past starts wreaking havoc on the people of the town, Dean must come to terms with his own fears and desires in order to save the people he cares about the most.

lazulisong: Graduate Vulcan for Fun and Profit
Somehow or another, word has invisibly gotten out that Jim really has returned to the all-encompassing downy wings of Starfleet, and is here to be tenderly brooded into a beautiful graduate of officer's training. (That is a terrible metaphor, even in Jim's head, but he lets it be. It really is like being surrounded by motherly hens.)

Word has also gotten out that Jim was not going to put up with that bullshit any more than he usually does, so Jim is instead forced to deal with Kelvin people lurking around the edges of his life, like helpful brownies or something. It turns out that Pike's assistant was a yeoman on the Last Trip, and the god damn RA of Jim's god damn dorm was the son of someone who died. Pike's yeoman offers to get him into the interesting math classes without fucking around with the pre-reqs, and the RA drops by with cookies from his dad and a note from same, inviting him to make himself at home for Sunday dinner, which Jim is kind of forced to accept.

Maybe Pete didn’t always know, or maybe he had, but when Brendon first told him, he hadn’t acted surprised and he didn’t treat Brendon any differently. He still blew on his face with morning breath before Brendon had had a chance to wake up, and still poked the bottoms of his feet when he fell asleep watching a movie. He still pinched him and gave him beer when Patrick wasn’t looking. He did ask what Brendon’s parents had named him. Brendon had stared at his hands and said, “Brenda, actually. Lame, I know. But it was easier than picking something totally new.” [~28,000 words of pure awesome.

aishuu: It Takes a Village
3. Chouji suffers from a painful shyness, much like Sakura. It's not that people don't notice him - he's an Akimichi, and their wide girths are difficult to miss. But they don't notice him, Chouji. His clan is known for brute strength, and few consider that he might be a gentle person with thoughts and feelings of his own.

Had someone bothered to draw him out, they might have been surprised at the depth of his thought, at his willingness to care for others. But he's not an attractive child, or a particularly interesting one, and no one bothers. He's not offended - he has no pride to worry about.

SGA Big Bang: "Calling Down the Lightning" by dreamwaffles
The gift of magic carries a death sentence on Earth, and one so accused can be executed on suspicion, for the simple reason that the destructive power of an angry wizard can lay waste to entire countries. When magic awakens in a person just as they leave their teens, whether it is the untamable power of a wizard or the lesser abilities of a mere magician, life becomes a constant struggle to hide it at all costs. Dr. Rodney McKay, PhD PhD, is a wizard. Incredibly, he has learned to control his power and is one of the few wizards in the world to have survived past his twenties. In order to remain hidden, he has sworn never to use his magic except in the most desperate of circumstances, when lives are at stake. But what will happen in the Pegasus Galaxy, where desperate circumstances are commonplace and chaos threatens to overwhelm the expedition at every turn?

northatlantic: No Dead End In Sight
***Summary: Leonard McCoy has always been an old soul in a young body. ***Author's Notes: According to the canon dates for when McCoy was born/when he has his first medical achievements and the procedures he does on the Enterprise, it is literally impossible for him to have completed med school at the usual age (extended riff on why that is if you follow the link). Now, we all know that's probably because whoever did the fact-checking did not do a very good job. But that's a BORING explanation. I like the explanation that McCoy is as much a misfit prodigy as his boys Kirk and Spock MUCH better. And that might have looked something like this. [~10,800]

Magicians are the bastard cousins of escapologists. They’re the sell-outs, the down-and-out TV-actors doing infomercials at 2am, the washed-up baseball stars selling cleaning products with a fake smile. But here’s the reason why magicians and escapologists are the bastard cousins, and so are politicians for that matter: a real con-artist is a misfit, an outsider. An outlaw. They’re cowboys, not show-girls; they never get to take off their costumes and go home.

Dean died in the car crash. Except that he didn't, because this is a novel length story and it would be boring without Dean, right? Anyways, so this is like the angsty story of looooong angst, but it is not at all boring because it is very well-paced, has lots of twists and turns, and has really snappy dialogue. If this was a book I would be calling a page-turner; as it stands I just finished about five hours worth of reading and am really just blown all the hell away by this story. Read it!

Sparrow and Norrington get to know each other. Eventually, as Will and Elizabeth prepare for their wedding, the Commodore becomes Jack's new goal. Amidst adventure, British Navy entanglements, a stop-over at old New Orleans, and battle, the affection becomes mutual. **It's too difficult to summarize what happens in this series. I'll just say that 1) it made Jack/James my OTP of snark and schmoop, 2) there was an absolutely wonderful background laid out for both main characters, 3) the minor characters - the crew of the Black Pearl and the British Navy officers - are terrifically written, and 4) the romance, anachronistic dance scene and all, was tremendous. I seriously have used this series to replace the second and third films in my personal canon. [~115,000]
