“I love you,” Shōta says, his face flushed and his pupils blown.

That’s what finally brings Hizashi back down to earth. Because those words aren't something Shōta would ever realistically say to him.

Well, not without some sort of coercion. [4409]

[I really like this! Hizashi is handed everything he's ever wanted from Shouta on a plate, but he knows it's not 100% real so he slams the brakes and goes searching for the cause. Consent is romantic!]

Inappropriate Fear Response - Ramabear (RyMagnatar) - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
They're six days into the mission that should have been a cakewalk. Shisui has a brilliant idea to flush out the bandits hidden on the side of Bear Mountain, although the rest of his team isn't so keen on the 'set fire to the mountainside'. At first.

Uchiha Shisui has a bit more of a lust for fire than your average Konoha ninja, and, Kakashi thinks, a completely inappropriate response to running pell-mell down the side of a burning mountain. Of course he does. He's an Uchiha. They're all mental. [4232]

In which Grantaire is the increasingly disgruntled Guardian of Fear and the Grim Reaper has gone missing. [11029]
“You’ve lost The Grim?” Musichetta says shrilly, as if Grantaire is somehow personally responsible for humanity’s mortality.

“It’s not my fault,” Grantaire throws his arms up in the air and the shadows follow, jittering across the room, “Excuse me for thinking that Death could take care of himself!”

“Are you telling us that the Will-o-the-Wisp, whose sole purpose is to mislead humans, has himself gotten lost?” Bossuet asks, attempting, and failing, to suppress his glee.

“Once I’ve made sure that the world isn’t ending, I’ll be sure to tell Bahorel all about the irony.”

The Fifth Act - Sinnatious - Final Fantasy VII [Archive of Our Own]
Cloud has an accident with a Time materia, and finds himself in the middle of the Wastes at the start of the Wutai War. There are people to save... and for that, there are three people who need to die. [161,697]

[Unusual in the FFVII time travel genre in that upon finding himself in the past Cloud's big plan is not to save 'everyone,' but instead to kill Sephiroth in order to save the world. Also portrays Cloud in an interesting way, wherein they show how strong Cloud has become due to the trauma of his original timeline, but also show an awareness among the other characters of how very damaged that trauma has made him.]

The Boy in the North - rosekay - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
In a floating city, there was a robber girl with red in her ledger that had bled into her hair and a boy who liked to see the world from afar. They had traveled, in the past, to a great many places and killed a great many things, and even drawn each other's blood, but the boy liked being able to see the girl, straight and true as an arrow into the sun, from his nest, and the girl drew comfort from knowing that the boy was near. She had been a robber of lives and innocence and the memory of safety, a maker of widows, and now she robbed with a purpose. Their master was a one-eyed man who was very wise, for his eyes never warred with each other over what they saw. He kept secrets so the robber girl and the boy in his nest did not worry about them. They were not brother and sister, but it did not matter.

Based on the bones of Anderson's The Snow Queen. [5766]

A Duplicity of Pirates - isabeau - Princess Bride (1987) [Archive of Our Own]
The last thing Westley had said to me before he left was, "Fare well, Captain, and remember which side is starboard, and I hope we never see each other again."

It was, perhaps, a strange thing to say, but ours had never been a relationship lacking strangeness. But it made sense when I heard the rumors: that Humperdinck had (depending on the source) lost his mind, or lost his health, or died by his own hand. or run away, or joined the circus, but in any case was generally not suited to the crown; and that Buttercup had been appointed successor, by virtue of (depending on the source) the love of the king and queen, the love of the general population, the abridged marriage to the Crown Prince, or an army of Finnish reindeer-mounted gnomes.

Some sources, obviously, were more reliable than others. [2356]

Nuée Ardente - Asuka Kureru (Askerian) - Girl Genius [Archive of Our Own]
The brand new secret tunnel behind Frau Crina's Bar and Bagels had not been outfitted with lamps, and it was the middle of a drizzly mountain night.

The reddish glow and dry heat that slowly grew the farther Sorin went had him chanting "Don't be lava, don't be lava" from the second he noticed his hair was drying to the time the tunnel opened onto a ridiculously large cave.

It was, of course, lava.

--
Sorin Petrescu is a perfectly normal blacksmith's apprentice, and is perfectly content with his life. He did not sign on to discover things he shouldn't know and go on the run with a Jägermonster.

Or make out with him, either. [45,105]

"'ullo again, Mister Baggins," the toymaker drawls, without turning around, and Bilbo laughs as he straightens up and steps into the candlelight.

It's still early enough into the evening that Bofur surely does not truly need to light the tapers as yet, but he's engaged in something delicate, it seems, his thick fingers busy on a knob of wood and his paring knife - he doesn't even look up when Bilbo circles the table to have a look.

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.

On Adventures and Other Forms of Conduct Unbecoming of a Wizard - Chapter 1 - manic_intent - The Hobbit (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
For as long as even the old Gaffer could remember there had been a wizard living in the hill at Bag End, overlooking the Shire. As wizards went, this one wasn't the wandering sort, always out to lure gentle folk out onto nasty adventures, or even the powerful kind, the sort that lived in high towers, reaching out into the ways of the world.

No, this was a wizard who was their sort of folk, more of a gentlehobbit than a wizard; why, he even looked exactly like a hobbit, from his modest height - even for a hobbit - to the unruly curls on his head, his equally modest if ageless features, his slowly prospering belly, to his bared and furry feet. Even his name was Hobbitish: "Bilbo" - and although he took no family surname, he was known to be quite fond of the Baggins clan, probably for their solid respectability of character, though, that being said, the wizard Bilbo was generally known to be generous and kindly to all the Shirefolk.

Still, despite having a reputation for stocking a good larder, respectability and gentleness, when the other wizard came striding up to Bag End, in his travel-worn clothes and his bent gray-blue hat, tattered wispy beard tugged by the breeze, the Shirefolk watched, turned, and whispered knowledgeably to themselves. Wizard business, the word spread, slow and self-importantly. Another wizard has come to talk to our wizard, about the ways of the world and its kings.

They would be far more right about that than they knew. [51,530]

“Caedite eos,” says Loki, and Thor clasps the back of his brother’s neck, draws him in, forehead to forehead, until they’re breathing together, eyes perfectly level, says, “Dominus qui sunt eius.”

[The au where Charles the dolphin meets Erik the shark and they band together to defeat Shaw, the rabid squid. IT IS PERFECTION.]

bloody wings and sharpened fangs - tigriswolf - Magnificent Seven (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Neresa told him of honor, and justice. Of blood-debts and blood-demands, and the God of Blood, Vincezika. The men who killed his family and took him to be civilized wanted something to call him. He never answered, so they called him Boy.

When the guards ask his name, he bares his teeth and says, "Vin." [830]

New Tales. - Anonymous - Static Shock [Archive of Our Own]
Kwaku Anansi vanquished the beasts themselves, but he could not destroy fully their evil roots. And so, with every generation they re-emerge, shaped by the blackness that lives within the world they are born into.

Anansi too, is reborn. His powers have passed into an amulet that preserves his wisdom, trickery, and the allusions his stories are able to cast.

He is not, and has never been, related to Spider-Man.

sunryder: Come To Morning
John Watson was a Shire Hobbit, born and bred, and he was terrible at it. He'd expected to spend his life bored and more than a little alone, but then Sherlock had come. Now he was running around Middle Earth trying to stop a killer while still avoiding Mycroft's lectures, and pretending he wasn't half mad in love with an Elf. [23,868]

Harry, Harry, Snape, and Bob - Perpetual Motion (perpetfic) - The Dresden Files (TV series), Harry Potter - Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
Harry [Potter] shows up at the office of Harry [Dresden] looking for Severus Snape. And then the plot took a long walk [as usually happens in my writing], and this becomes about four guys, two relationships, and trying to make things as right as they can be in the weird world of men named Harry [one of whom is kind of a pyromaniac].

The Fable of Joyful Wing by shiplizard
My name is Du Hui Rui, but it is not often used. Because I live on the outskirts of Peking in a small house, and because I am under the suspicion of the Council of Sages, most call me Dog-- or Long Dog, because I am very tall. My mother was a noblewoman and accomplished witch, my father a street magician. They ran away together, but my mother died when she bore me, and when I was eleven and apprenticed to my father, his heart failed and he died as well. I was taken in by my maternal uncle, Morning Brother, and taught the way of magic. He made me his heir and had his servants teach me everything there was to know about magic and politics, but when I was twenty we had a squabble over the most trivial of matters (there are nobles in Peking who still cannot understand why the life of a street magician was worth fighting over, even if he had happened to be my father) and Morning Brother died in a duel with me.
