Jester, daughter of the goddess of the harvest, finds herself lying low in the land of the dead under the care of the Lord of the Dead, Caleb. [6727]

[THE FREAKING CUTEST! Not my usual pairing (except that rarepairs are my OTP and I would do many ridiculous things for more Hades/Persephone!AUs), but so glad I took a few minutes to read this. SO. CUTE.]

Tobirama has long since resigned himself to the fact that all Uchiha are at least mildly insane, but this is a new low. And to think, he’d considered Kagami to be one of the level-headed ones. [6205]

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

Five Times Bruce Was Surprised by his Husband (and Five Times Tony was Surprised by Bruce) - storiesfortravellers - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
For this prompt on avengerkink:
"In an AU where brilliant scientists and engineers are viewed like royalty, Bruce and Tony's corporations/universities/research labs/government agencies/whatever have arranged a marriage between them.

Tony is annoyed because he thinks Bruce is going to be quiet and boring and is not going to let him do any of his awesome explosions. Besides, he doesn't think anyone's really worth more than a one-night-stand anyway; he's never been faithful to anything that wasn't run on arc-reactors.

Bruce is more terrified than annoyed. The only possibilities he can think of are bad (Tony will keep dragging him to society functions only to cast him aside and go off with pretty girls) or worse (Tony will experiment on him and it will be as bad as the Army; after all Tony's not been known for caring about collateral damage).

Then, when they actually get together, sparks fly. It turns out Bruce is even more playful than Tony is, and Tony has more heart than Bruce could ever imagine." [3173]

In Bond and Blood - thehoyden - Naruto [Archive of Our Own]
"I want to make Naruto my heir," Kakashi said bluntly.

To his credit, Iruka didn’t freeze in the middle of taking a sip of tea, but he did set his cup down after a careful swallow. "This is sudden," Iruka said cautiously.

Kakashi looked over at the curtain fluttering in a brisk, early autumn breeze. "Not really. I’m turning thirty tomorrow."

Iruka drank from his teacup again, and Kakashi knew he wouldn’t have to explain further, jounin life expectancy being what it was. You were either good enough or lucky enough to survive, or you weren’t. In either case, Kakashi believed in being prepared. "Happy birthday," Iruka said after a moment.

Kakashi inclined his head in thanks. "Imagine my surprise when I learned you beat me to it. Very sneaky, Iruka-sensei. Tell me, how did you convince Naruto to keep his mouth shut about the adoption?" [12,918]

Opacity of Paradise - thehoyden - Star Trek: Deep Space Nine [Archive of Our Own]
"Look at me," Garak says softly, and Julian does. "Are you afraid I won't be good to you?"

"I could ask you the same," Julian asks steadily, although his heart seems to have relocated to his throat.

"Julian Bashir, you've been nothing but good to me since the day we met," Garak says lightly, but it doesn't mask the sincerity of the remark.

Julian mulls it over. "So I get freedom from vicious rumors and limit the possibility of others finding out by mistake. What do you get?"

"You," Garak says simply. "Nothing you're not amenable to, of course. But I want more than lunches once a week." It's not a shock, not exactly -- it's more like a suspicion that Julian's chosen not to look at too closely before. But if Julian has felt terribly alone in keeping his secret, Garak has kept his own secret longer and under worse circumstances. If Garak wanted more…intimacy, Julian couldn't honestly say he was opposed to the idea. [10,154]

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]
