The Rat King - Rethira - Dishonored (Video Games) [Archive of Our Own]
They call him Everyman first. It makes the Outsider laugh, as much as anything does. The prayers know where to go, even if the name is wrong – they never will get it right, even as Corvo’s mortality fades from memory and he becomes something more than he was – and Corvo’s head rattles with pleas for everyman everyman everyman. It sets his teeth on edge.

The Void starts to fill with rats. That amuses the Outsider too. There is little that fails to amuse him.

The Tale Of The Amazing Technicolor Gravecoat - Angel Ascending (angel_in_ink) - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
Adelina Colfer sized up the crowd at the Dancing Deer with a practiced eye as she took a gulp of ale to quench her parched throat. The bard had already told two stories to the packed common room, and had earned more than enough coin to stop for the night if she wished. Still, she hated to leave it at just two stories. Boots came in a pair, and socks, and pants, but she felt stories were best told in threes or not at all. Her audience, patrons driven to seek shelter during the snowstorm outside still looked attentive, and it was still early enough in the evening that no one was yet terribly drunk or looked like they were about to fall asleep. But what story to tell?

“Has anyone here heard the tale of the amazing technicolor gravecoat?” Adelina asked, her voice carrying all the way to the back of the room.

A bard tells a tale in a crowded tavern, not knowing that a group of renowned adventurers are listening.... [2380]

This isn’t Valhalla, though. Everywhere he looks are nameless green things and wild water and burning blue stars, but no chrome. No metal at all. No rigs or wagons or shiny warriors riding in glory. So this isn’t Valhalla.

He’s glad. [1903]

Concrete - RarePairFairy - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Post Season 3 mid-season finale. Chris Argent does NOT have a man crush.

Except maybe he does, a bit.

There are hostile creatures appearing in inconvenient places around Beacon Hills, and three families - the Argents, the McCalls and the Stilinskis - are resembling a taskforce.

Chris is beginning to realize that he's tired of watching loved ones get hurt. Sheriff Stilinski couldn't care less, because he's been trained how to use a gun and the bad guy's getting away, so on your feet, old man. [8537]
No sign of It. -- S Stilinski

Chris, already having Stiles’ number, had accidentally placed the Sheriff under the same name in his phone out of woeful ignorance of the man’s actual first name. He could only tell the difference between the two because Stiles had been making Ghostbuster references in all of his texts.

The phone buzzed again.

No Zuuls in this fridge. – S Stilinski

Chris huffed. Getting used to working with non-professionals was going to take time.

Dirty Deeds (Done Dirt Cheap) - Chapter 1 - greenkangaroo - The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings - Fandom, Tolkien - Fandom [Archive of Our Own]
Summary: A series of short generally unrelated fics revolving around Nori the dwarf, who is always up to something- something shady, questionable, morally ambiguous and most probably illegal.

Notes: While these shorts all involve Nori of the Brothers Ri (man I love that title) they are not in any kind of timeline or order, and each could be considered a stand-alone from the others. While themes or objects will intersect, I'll try my best to state when one story is a sequel or partner to another. Unless I state otherwise, assume what you are reading is a one shot.

*sketchy dealings *sibling feels *References to Canonical Character Death *nasty underhanded things *Murder *mayhem *a touch of crossdressing *all those things you deal with *when you're running an intelligence network under a mountain *chapter 12 has mpreg/weird twisty gender preg *chapter 58 contains mentions of incest *so skip those if you don't wanna deal *it's cool *occasional AU *usually marked in chapter *genderbend in chapter 66

The Hobbit Kink Meme - Prompt Post part 7 -- Lost To Life, by tsukitenchichan
Thorin is so bad at following directions that he walks straight past Death's Door back to the world of the living.

On his way he finds Fíli and Kíli, and he's like, "Where are you going? Clearly it's that way!", and leads them away from the light.

And that's how Thorin and his nephews survive the BOFA.

The Hobbit Kink Meme - Prompt Post 2 (Closed to new prompts) -- Frodo doesn't know what to make of all these dwarves, by anon
So I've read several stories of Bilbo meeting up with Thorin and company in the grey havens, but I'd like to see it from Frodos point of view.

What's his reaction when Bilbo gets mobbed by dwarves after stepping off the boat? And does he have a near heart attack when his uncle starts making out with the dwarven king? After all- I can't imagine that Bilbo ever told him that part of the story before.

The first thing Doyle did when he realized he was dead was shout out a great and resounding "Feck all!" Which, on reflection, probably didn't endear him to the Powers That Be, but he figured they owed him a little slack for the number of bloody splitting headaches they'd thrown at him. [16,138]
