The Liars - manic_intent - John Wick (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Beyond Helen, John was not used to lying. Until the day of her death, he had been grateful that she never asked deeper questions about his tattoos, about the way he habitually watched the shadows, about how he always chose to sit in a restaurant with his back to the wall and within view of the exits, about how he refused to travel. Because of his lies, they lived a staged life drawn in uneven acts.

Atlas; Phoenix Reborn - orphan_account - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Eight years ago, Tony Stark lay dying on the Afghan sand, the shrapnel of his own bombs having pierced his very heart, betrayed by his beloved godfather and left to die. Now, he lay helpless in a Siberian bunker, weighed down by his own dead armor, utterly wrecked by the friend he'd so naively trusted.

But despite the world’s best efforts to break him, he lives. He comes back with a vengeance, stronger than ever, refusing to be defeated. Ever the mechanic, he fixes things. He builds a brighter future, a safer planet, and a loving family from the ashes of what he has lost.

… or, my self-indulgent long-ass fic filled with my trademark bitterness and bias that asks the question: what would happen leading up to and during IW if Tony completely turns his back on the Rogue Avengers post-Civil War?

“Um, something? Like… a general disdain, or...?”

Patrick laughs. “Uh, nope. Kind of the opposite of that.”

An AU where Patrick tells David upfront that he's developing feelings for him, in the interest of being honest as they go into business together.

Sinner - manic_intent - John Wick (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
The Devil laughed as the sinner was shown into the room. “John Wick,” said Santino D’Antonio. He did not rise from his chair, where he sat loose-limbed like the emperor of everything he saw instead of the dead man that he was. “When I was first told that you’d become a cop, I thought it was a joke.”

John sat in the bolted-down chair opposite Santino at the bolted-down table. He’d always found interrogation rooms strangely calming. One-way mirror, single exit, the world condensed down to him, another person, and a sparse box of a room. John liked simplicity. “Santino,” he said.

“Jonathan,” Winston said as John stared down the barrel of the gun at Santino. His aim was true and his finger was on the trigger. John knew exactly how much pressure to apply to get the weapon to fire. He was already braced for the recoil, for the noise, for the stench. Death had been John’s shadow for so long that he’d stopped noticing the weight it bore on his soul.

Until Helen. John wavered. For the first time in his long career his aim shook, twisting fractionally to the side. Slouched in his chair, Santino smiled with the venomous pleasure of a man damned past caring. “You’re prepared to die,” John said, ignoring Winston.

“Aren’t we all?” Santino stabbed another potato with his fork.

The stranger at the bar was the most beautiful person John had ever seen. Lush curly hair, soft cheeks, wide dark eyes, graceful legs and narrow hips. He looked young, in his late twenties or thirties. Wealthy, with his expensive-looking watch and a charcoal grey suit that fit him like another skin. He also didn’t look like he was at the bar with anyone, drinking a glass of wine while checking his phone.

“Fuck,” Santino said out aloud as the announcement was made over the PA. Just his fucking luck. The one time he decided to fly commercial instead of borrowing the family jet and the flight had to get fucking delayed. By another two hours. The hell was he supposed to do?

In the silence of the Private Room, his expletive echoed like a gunshot. The sole other occupant of the dining section glanced over at Santino and looked back at his food. Dour, tall man all in black. He looked vaguely familiar. A movie star, maybe? He was good-looking enough to be one, and the Private Room only admitted outbound First Class passengers. Santino took a sneaky photo and sent it to his sister, who usually cared about this kind of thing.

Falling in Love... Among Other Things - Jenetica - Hannibal (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Doctor Hannibal Lecter was very clumsy. It was the first thing Will noticed about the man, who tripped and stumbled his way into Will's life.

Plastic Pearls - BabylonsFall - Leverage [Archive of Our Own]
When Parker and Hardison move to Portland to get a change of scenery, they pick a place almost at random. Lucky for them, they end up across from single-parent Eliot . Though the relationship between Eliot and Molly is clearly a little rough around the edges, he's trying his best, and Molly, in turn, has learned to copy his glare impressively well.Neither Hardison nor Parker are looking for anything life-changing, and, frankly, Eliot's had his fill of life-changing events for the next couple of years. (Too bad for them then.)

you've got everything (got what i need) - bluverry - Venom (Movie 2018) [Archive of Our Own]
It was a risk worth taking, he’d told himself. What had he left to lose if things went south, anyway? The ring Anne gave back to him that sits in his pocket? The apartment he can only afford for another month, tops? The credibility Carlton Drake burned to ash six months ago?

And he’d had everything to gain: access to Life Foundation, a lead on a new story that could revitalize his career and his reputation and give him his revenge, the chance to save Maria from something sketchy as all get-out, and the opportunity to not hate himself completely if he could just manage to not fuck up this one thing.

He’d fucked up this one thing.


Eddie stops Maria from being taken by Life Foundation. He still ends up with Venom.

Traveling Far - astolat - Game of Thrones (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Three weeks into their delightful slog across Westeros, during yet another charming day of shitting in the woods, eating half-raw squirrel, and trudging his feet bloody, the single most dour and uninteresting woman Jaime had ever met in all of Westeros stopped in the middle of a field, drew a deep breath, and said, “When I was seven, my aunt came to visit with her son. My father told me that as the daughter of the house, it was my duty to show hospitality to my guests and to be gracious to them. I wanted to make him proud. So for three weeks, I let my cousin follow me around and talk to me about spiders.”

Normal People - manic_intent - Ant-Man (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“Dating is a security risk,” Phil said. He patted Jimmy companionably on the shoulder as he said it.

Jimmy pointedly shrugged off Phil’s hand. “Seriously? Is this really the time?”

Phil shaded his eyes against the sun. They were both wrapped heavily in parkas, knee-deep in snow a couple of miles out from Mt. Lussari village. Nothing but brilliant blue sky, mountains, and the wreckage of a military plane with all the bodies suspiciously missing. “It’s always a good time. Especially if you insist on using unsecured apps.”

“We should tell Gaby,” Illya said.

Common Core - Saathi1013 - The Man From U.N.C.L.E. (2015) [Archive of Our Own]
Illya Kuryakin has retired from Russian intelligence, taking refuge in a small suburb of Chicago, working as a high school teacher under an alias. Always on alert for the inevitable moment when his past catches up to him, his is a solitary life until two newcomers arrive in town: Gabrielle Schmidt, a shop teacher at his school, and Nathan Teller, who runs a small antique shop downtown.

Despite his suspicions, he finds himself charmed by the two - until their presence causes unforeseen complications.

(inspired by a kinkmeme prompt, which I will link to in the notes at the end of the story, as it's partially spoilery, but this fic does not entirely fulfill the requirements therein)
