it feels more like a memory - savrenim - Hamilton - Miranda [Archive of Our Own]
“Alexander Hamilton! I’m at your service, sir!”

Aaron looks at the hand and doesn’t take it. His hands are safely in his pocket, but he’d taken off his gloves, and he is not particularly in the mood to feel the single most consequential juncture of a stranger’s life.

Alexander is still grinning at him, and the moment is stretching on, and he refuses to put his hand down, and Aaron has about half a second before this staring contest verges beyond the mere impolite and into the territory of heavy, awkward weight and scattered excuses—and before he can think better of it, Aaron takes Alexander’s hand.

Look at My Hands, Don't Look at My Hands - kittykatthetacodemon - The Magnificent Seven (2016) [Archive of Our Own]
It's the late 1800s, and one in four folks out west in the precarious settler communities develops a gift, a unique power that gives them some kind of advantage. Sam Chisolm has enhanced senses. Billy Rocks is damn hard to kill. Goody doesn't have a gift, unless you count being a stone-cold badass when the mood strikes. Vasquez is an empath, Red Harvest controls lightning, and Jack Horne can see the future. Emma Cullen, their new employer, can sometimes raise the dead.

And Faraday? Well, he's harmless, really. He's got his own skills, a bit of this and that. Nothing to worry about.

Or: that one AU where everything is the same, except nobody dies and also they have superpowers. [15,610]
“Now, I’ve got no powers,” he said. “No gifts to speak of, save my good looks and God-given talents.” Faraday found himself impressed; most snipers had a little something extra for their aim. “But my friend Billy, here, he’s got something I like to call cockroach tendencies. It is nigh-on impossible to kill this man. Why, I once saw a man put a gun to the back of his head and pull the trigger, and Billy’s still here.”

“What happened?” Teddy asked, clearly not believing it.

Robicheaux waved a lazy hand in his direction. “Oh, the gun backfired. Damn near blew off the fool’s arm, and Billy didn’t so much as flinch.”

“I turned around and gutted the man, Goody,” Billy told him, dry as bone. “I’d call that more than a flinch.”

Clint's a little older than he looks, and his DNA has a few surprises in store, too. [8378]
"Nobody on this Earth thinks you're pushing thirty, let alone forty," Bruce said. Sam gave him a starving-puppy look, and he rolled his eyes and dished out two bowls, spooning brown sugar into one. Sam took the other one and dumped half a jar of jam into it. "You don't think it's....unnatural?"

"Not really," Clint said. "I mean, it could have been something I ate."

Bucky looked thoughtful. "That actually might explain it."

"How does 'something I ate' explain this?" Tony asked, looking increasingly upset.

"He eats...everything," Natasha said.

Natural Selection - wintergrey - Marvel Cinematic Universe, Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
In the aftermath of Project Insight, after Sam and Steve bring in The Winter Soldier, what remains of S.H.I.E.L.D. manages to finally unravel the mysteries of the super-soldier serum. It falls to Steve to find the first two candidates for testing and he's suddenly faced with one of the biggest decisions of his life: who does he bring into the super-soldier family to double its number from two to four? He knows the answer he wants before he starts but he doesn't want to endanger the people he loves. Natasha isn't worried about herself but she refuses to risk Sam's life. Sam's ready for anything—so long as it makes him better at doing what he was made to do: protect this family he's chosen for himself. [14,203]
“This is a S.H.I.E.L.D. initiative. So, I guess it’s just me you have to convince.” Coulson shrugs. “But it’s going to take a lot of convincing if it’s not by the book, Steve. The last thing I want is to—”

“Spend time and resources on someone, give them a high security clearance, bring them into the inner circle, and then find out they work for Hydra?” Steve can’t keep the snap out of his voice. This has everyone on edge. “Yeah, it crossed my mind, too.”

Owen Grady had always had a talent for animals. Like his grandfather. It was a talent that ran in the families.

Masrani Global recruited him to train raptors. It was an intriguing, novel idea, something only a crazy or insane person would attempt.

Owen wasn't crazy or insane. He knew he could do this.

He just didn't know how deep he would get into it, how strong the connection to the pack would become, how close... they, the four of them, would become to him.

His grandfather had always warned him: don't get too close. Don't let them connect. Well, it was too late for that now. [101,210]

They think they do: Grantaire the cynic, Grantaire the drunkard, Grantaire the useless - but they don't. He's made sure they don't, because if they did, if they knew who he was, it would be him chained up in there instead of the Inspector.

(It must say something about him - or how very far he's fallen - that the Inspector didn't know him even when he'd stared Grantaire right in the face.) [825]

Sam’s relationship with birds starts early and inexplicably.

A/N: So I don’t know what this is, but even though I LOVE MCU!Sam (seriously, I was so excited about him and he turned out perfect and I’m still just as in love), a small part of me has a need for MCU!Sam who just stops and talks to birds.

s2b2: Silver Linings
"It's almost midnight, and you're still here?"

Jesus Christ. Kevin did not quite manage to jump out of his seat – too tired to even do that much – but his heart did bounce up to his throat before slamming back into his ribcage like a startled rabbit. He grimaced as he thumped his fist over the excessive pounding in his chest before he turned his swivel chair to glare at the being floating outside the one open window of his office. He’d hoped the fresh air would clear his head. It hadn’t helped. "Gilgamesh," he said, in as polite a tone as he could manage, "don't you have any world-saving to do?"

Gilgamesh met his glare with narrowed eyes. Given that said eyes were all glowing silver in iris and pupil, the effect was unnerving, if not downright frightening, to the average person. Thankfully, Kevin had a little over two years of practice with dealing with Neo-Eden's Silver Star (as the media was so fond of calling the city's pet superhero) that the pale gaze no longer brought the discomfited shudder he used to get when those inhuman eyes turned towards him.

"Commissioner Yang," Gilgamesh said, his brow furrowing with something that looked like concern. "I do not know the exact daily schedule of your police, but I do not think that this is the normal hour for you to be in your office."

To Fight Another Day - Ryssabeth - Les Misérables - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Grantaire holds out his arms, as wide as he can get them, and Enjolras would laugh if it weren’t so sad—and then colour bursts from his fingertips and his spine, swirls crawling up his neck and around his ears. His skin ripples with pain and his green shirt falls away in tatters, the colours spreading and evolving with more speed than Enjolras can adequately describe as twelve pillars—and then people—stand around Grantaire and Enjolras, catching every shot with a piece of their bodies, moving and adjusting where compensation is required.

“I am one of them!” Grantaire shouts—and the twelve people, men and women alike, oh, oh (oh those are the Greco-Roman gods, oh)—declare themselves the same, speaking in tandem with a voice that shakes the building and causes the shifting crowd to still and fall silent. “I am one of them,” he says, softer this time and looks over his shoulder at Enjolras, his face completely coloured by whirling storms of colour—the only think marking him as Grantaire at all is the bright blue of his eyes swimming in a sea of unfamiliar shades.

An Eyeless Face - Not_You - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Written for a very special prompt on Avengerkink that I'm going to bother to quote in full:

Clint is called Hawkeye, and that's truer than most people know. You see, Clint is special. He has a whole collection of eyes for every occasion. Hawk eyes for accuracy, infrared eyes for tracking people at night, cat eyes for seeing in dim light, even a set of plain old human eyes he uses for nights out on the town. Somewhere in his room/nest is a shelf full of different eyes he uses, though he usually keeps a few sets on him, just in case. In truth, Clint is actually blind; he has no eyes of his own, just uses the various sets that he has. (Whether his ability to change out his eyes is science or magic or some kind of tech is up to you, dear author.)

Please show me the team's reaction when they find out! Are they intrigued? Disgusted? Just plain weirded out?

(Coulson finds out, and years later, so does the team.) [1766]

I Am Judas - Sidney Sussex (SidneySussex) - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
"I hit him, Clint. I hit him back," Barney whispers, and he's crying again, like he's done something wrong, like it's some kind of sin to raise a hand against this man who is not, and never was, a father.

Clint rests his hands on Barney's back, his head against Barney's chest, and whispers, "It's okay. It's okay."

And it is, because it's always okay when Clint says it is.

Barney stops crying, slowly and with deep, shuddering breaths that shake them both. He stops and Clint tells him, again and again, it's okay, it's okay, because Barney looks after him and keeps him safe and does everything for him, and this is the only thing Clint knows how to do in return; the only thing that Clint can do that Barney can't.

When things are wrong, Clint makes them right again. [4909]

"Did you really go to med school?"

Danny has always been prone to déja vu, for as far back as he can remember. Stupid, insignificant things, mostly, feeling like he’d already eaten a meal when he knew he hadn’t or thinking he recognized a new place. He’d never really given it much thought; you get used to your brain’s little quirks, Danny always figured.

Except he swears it’s gotten worse since he came to this godforsaken island, and it’s starting to make him a little nuts. It happens all the fucking time, and now he’s starting to remember the dreams his mind thinks are reality, wakes up from them feeling more tired than he was when he went to bed.

She scowled at his stupid helmet and shook her head. “Fine, I’m going to be a superhero. If you can do it, anyone can do it.”

“Great! I already picked a name for you and scheduled a press conference.”

“You better cancel it right away and what name did you pick?”

“Iron Maiden?”

She gave him a look and that was probably why he kept the helmet on. “Maiden?”

“Iron Woman’s not going to sound a hell of a lot better.”

To be fair, Tony had a point, but Pepper sighed anyway. She’d have to see what Rhodes thought, but considering that his name was War Machine? He would probably think it was a great idea.

originalceenote: The Thrill is Gone
"Logan's tired of playing games. Remy's tired of running. Mutual need turns into something else."

[This one is interesting. It's a realworld AU on the face of it, but there are still mutants running around the edges of things, making things more complicated. There is absolutely no reference to mutants in the larger scheme of the story, only in reference to certain individuals, so you don't really know if mutants are widely known about as in the canon, or if they're only known to a small few. Nevertheless, I love how the author dealt with the characters, showing a tougher side to Remy and a softer side to Logan than other authors have conceived of. The author still has the story marked as a WiP, but it is complete in itself as it now stands at 20 chapters.]

The only time Merlin had met the man, only his own latent pushing talent allowed him to fend off that powerful mind for the few seconds he needed to run.

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?

kathkin: I Can See That You're Thinking About Having Sex With Me But I Am Not Into You
Summary: Based on this prompt on the old Kink Meme: AU. Arthur can read minds. "For the longest time, it seemed like the most natural thing in the world: the undercurrent of whispering voices, flashes of alien emotion and thought at random intervals. It sharpened as he got older, but he just assumed it was normal. He couldn’t imagine it being any other way." [3674]

from the very beginning, slowly at first but always steadily growing towards more, they touched. So much and eventually so without thought that they never had to wonder why it felt wrong when they didn’t, because that itself happened so infrequently.
