A Crystal Moment - phoenixyfriend - Voltron: Legendary Defender [Archive of Our Own]
In which Lance tries to take Keith's mind off of his angst by talking shit, Hunk gives the best hugs, and Keith really wants to know why Lance is doing the whole "soft gasp" thing while Keith is holding a Balmera crystal. [5691]

[First one is mostly gen team!fic goodness. Sequel is Hunk/Keith/Lance and is equally adorable and well-characterized. I've tagged for both.]

Kore - oneiriad - Greek and Roman Mythology [Archive of Our Own]
The day her mother gives birth to a horse is the day Persephone decides that she really needs a plan. [5673] [It's nice to read an Ace fic that doesn't make me want to scratch my eyes out and is genuinely funny]
"Here you go. You take care of him, while I see to your mother."

Persephone stares at the warm bundle in her arms and then at the short, wrinkled goddess currently washing blood off her hands.

"But what am I supposed to do with him?"

"The usual - hold him, feed him, burp him. Really, Persephone, you're almost a grown woman. You should know these things already, you'll be having your own soon enough."

"I? What? No, I won't!"

"Oh, don't be silly, Persephone, I really don't have time for it. Now, go ask one of the nymphs to fetch some mare's milk and stop bothering me. Your mother needs stitches and I need to get to work now, if we're not going to have to send for Asclepius."

And off she goes, closing the door behind her, leaving Persephone alone with her newborn brother in her arms, her mother's screams of pain still echoing in her ears and an absolute and total conviction that she is not, ever, under any circumstance, going to go through that.

There are things in this world that demand purity. There are others for whom decency and a willingness to try are plenty good enough. OR, Flynn and Eve get cornered by a homicidal unicorn, and Jenkins saves them in a rather old-fashioned way. [7053]

Dulce Domum - busaikko - Stargate Atlantis [Archive of Our Own]
"You know you're part of this family, right?" Jennifer tried for a non-threatening smile. "I mean, Rodney, and me, and you -- do you ever want more?"

John stared down at his tiles, looking ill. "Is that some kind of a proposition?" he asked carefully. "Or do you want me to move out?"

Jennifer's stomach dropped. She wondered if John would sleep with them, if he thought that was the price he had to pay for acceptance.

"It's kind of completely the opposite," Jennifer said, and looked at Rodney. He obviously wished he was somewhere else, but failing miraculous escape, was willing to let Jennifer struggle to find the right words herself. "I mean, of course we want you to stay, but not because you're the guy who lives in the guest room, but because this --" she waved around the table -- "is pretty much a working marriage of three people. You belong," she added. John still didn't look up, but his ears turned red. [2649]

Libido Has Nothing To Do With It - ambitiousbutrubbish - Pacific Rim (2013) [Archive of Our Own]
Mako looks at him completely lost. “But, you and Dr. Gottlieb -”

Newt splutters over her. “No–. I mean–. It’s not like that. Hermann and I aren’t like that.” And that’s how Newt ends up explaining sexuality to a wide eyed, 15 year old girl.

After he’s finished she smiles at him and says that being in love with someone and not having to have sex with them sounds nice, because sex sounds gross anyway. Newt hugs her so tight his arms start to hurt. [1070]

I'm Not Gonna Wait Until The Winter (I'm Just Gonna Wait Until The Springtime) - JenNova - Teen Wolf (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Stiles' grin splits his face and lights up his eyes and Derek feels his heart stutter in his chest. Jesus Christ.

“Any time, dude,” Stiles says. “Well. Any time within reason. Especially on school nights.”

Stiles is gone with that, to sneak back into his house, and Derek's left with a realisation settling deep into his bones.

When the hell did he find time to start falling for Stiles? [7382]

The Important Bit, a sherlock fanfic by rayndrop - FanFiction.Net
A few minutes later, John opens his mouth to say something.

"After a certain point," cuts in Sherlock without looking up from his book, "I should think that the distinction between 'to love' and to 'be in love' becomes rather more academic than practical, don't you think?"


A lovely story about straight John and asexual Sherlock being married and growing old together.


AN: That's right. Platonically married asexual Sherlock and straight John. Because the really important part is that they're soulmates whether or not they fancy each other. Because they defy category. Because if anyone is going to tell society that it and its constrictive, insufficient definitions of friendship, romance, and marriage can go hang, it's going to be Sherlock Freaking Holmes. [11,289]

Tony at age six does not quite comprehend what his father means when Howard explains “image” and “reputation” as they relate to the Stark name. |||||

By the time Tony graduates from MIT, he has done two things not related at all to his degree: created the persona of Tony Stark Playboy Billionaire, and stopped having sex entirely. [1494]

honeypuffed: Counting Backwards
Prompt: Can I just have lots of asexual Steve/Bucky cuddles and support and non-sex based relation of awesomeness, yet still obviously a romantic relationship?

Bonus points for creating a movie!headcanon for Steve meeting Bucky again in the future when asexuality is more of a known thing and they have a word for what they were (granted the word existed in the 40's it just didn't have the distribution it has now) [1935]

Mosaic - isabeau - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
"Fine, then," Charles says in a surge of semi-hysterical anger. "You want me to show you? Here." And he opens his mind, flinging memory after memory: the overheard thought that started this, his own conviction that Erik would find out, the hopeless way he's been clinging to their relationship and pretending it's normal; earlier relationships, mentally overwhelming even with all his shields up and in place, physically overwhelming but not in a good way; the hollowness of pretending, pretending to Raven that he's had a good evening out and pretending to partners that he's enjoying himself and pretending to society that he's as normal as he looks; confusion and flat misunderstandings and the faint hope that one day he'd grow up enough to understand.

A lifetime's worth of memories and feeling, each one thrown at Erik like a dart, with the strength of Charles's fear behind them. [6278]
