Paved With Good Intentions (I'm on the road to hell) - itsallAvengers - The Avengers (Marvel) - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
When the mysterious group of vigilante assassins known only as 'The Avengers' are tipped off about the dirty secrets that lie within Stark Industries, Steve Rogers has his heart set on taking out Tony Stark for good in order to protect the rest of the world from his evil. He's seen the footage, after all- Stark is a man who fights only for himself. And of course, when a job arises as chief bodyguard for Stark, to protect him from the growing threat of an ominously infatuated stalker, the opportunity is way too good for him to miss out on. It's the perfect placement, and the perfect way to find out whether or not their tipoff is genuine.

But as Steve falls into rank as the new bodyguard for Mr. Stark and he spends time getting to know and protect him, his initial hatred begins to falter and merge into something different, something far more terrifying than the prospect of killing the face of Stark Industries.

Steve Rogers may just be falling in love with him instead.

Immortal and Imperishable - prettysailorsoldier - Merlin (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
"The soul of man is immortal and imperishable" - Plato

When Merlin first arrives in Camelot, he is certain of the destiny that awaits him: Clearing the throne of the Pendragon dynasty to make way for the Once and Future King. Working with Nimueh and a rebel band of druids, he is sent to infiltrate Camelot, working from the inside to overthrow those that will challenge the rise of Albion. He didn't count on becoming the manservant of the crown prince--or, worst of all, liking him--and, slowly, Merlin begins to wonder if the king he has been searching for is a lot closer than anyone believed.

He should have said something the second he realized denying himself the opportunity to play happy couple with Castiel would mean that his brother would be the only other option. He should have just agreed to partner with Cas on this case from the beginning. But his stupid fucking pride had told him he couldn’t spend an entire week pretending to be gay, and he had listened.

After Tony gets injured, he asks Clint, Natasha and Bucky on a simple mission to retrieve some Starktech from an international black market arms auction for him.

Simple, that is, until everyone brings along their own private agenda. Steve wants Tony to take it easy while he's recovering, Tony wants to spend as much time alone with Steve as he can while the others are away, Bucky wants to try and put some distance between him and Clint so that he can choke off his crush already and Clint just wants to work out why Bucky apparently hates him.

Then a guy from one of Clint's first missions with SHIELD turns up, and suddenly there's nothing simple about the mission at all.

And come back tomorrow with your answer, 10pm sharp. If you’re not on time, then I’ll take it as a no.” Leonard had been moving towards the door and when he got there he turned to look back at Barry, his eyes roamed up and down Barry’s body for a moment which made the younger man blush and his heart quicken. “And that would be a shame,” Leonard drawled. Barry nodded and swallowed thickly as his mouth became suddenly dry from the fire in Leonard’s eyes. “I hope to see you tomorrow, Barry,”
When Barry wakes up from his coma with superspeed he is asked to go undercover in the Rogues, an elite team of metahuman criminals who are hell-bent on the destruction of the new metahuman laws. He agrees and everything is going well at first… except Barry hadn’t planned on being so attracted to Captain Cold.

“Kiss me,” he murmured when he reached Harry, because while it wasn’t exactly vital to the mission that Eggsy convince this woman that they were in love, it would certainly make him feel better. Harry pressed his mouth to Eggsy’s as he passed him a glass of champagne, and ‘feeling better’ went out the window. The kiss was quick, sweet, marital. Eggsy didn’t know how Harry made it feel so practiced, but he did.

“I have an admirer,” Eggsy informed him, almost breathless with how much he wanted Harry to kiss him like that every day, how much he wanted Harry to have a reason to.

Five times Eggsy gets Harry to kiss him for the wrong reasons (and one time he gets it right).

After the fourth time, Gaby sprained one of Napoleon’s fingers and threatened to do worse if he did it again.

“You are not a spy,” she told him firmly, dangling the watch out of reach as Napoleon curled in a wincing, fetal position on his Le Corbusier couch in his upstate apartment. “You are a thief with the self-control of a child. Now give me back my ring.”

“What ring?” Napoleon asked innocently, even through the pain.

“How fond are you of your nose?” Gaby shot back blandly.

Say When - ann2who - Captain America (Movies), Iron Man (Movies), Marvel (Comics), Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Say When:
** Iron Man 2 AU ⎪Undercover AU **
What if Steve was unfrozen early? What if instead of Natasha, Steve got assigned to help Tony while the genius was slowly dying of palladium poisoning? What if he never revealed his identity to him until the very moment the Avengers first came together, forming a team?

Say the Word:
** Post-Avengers⎪Natasha POV **
The idea of the Avengers as a long-term thing still felt strange to her. Natasha was sure that none of them had ever entertained the illusion of making friends on the way. And now here she was, in Stark Tower of all places, because Steve wanted her here. Because Stark—however that had happened—wanted her here. She kept waiting to find a catch in all of this, and somehow, it never happened.

And I will Be Your Man:
** Iron Man 3 AU **
After completing his undercover mission and earning Tony’s forgiveness, Steve’s life has become wonderfully peaceful. The Avengers had officially taken up their residence in New York, and—Tony’s nightmares, and occasional precarious missions aside—life was good. He was in love, and he’d never been happier. That was, until some terrorist decided to go ahead and destroy everything he’d ever fought for.

Hold My Hand:
** Cap 2 AU **
Book 3 of the Say When series. An alternate version of Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In the months following the defeat of the Mandarin, Steve decides to temporarily move back to Washington in order to help SHIELD train the new STRIKE teams. A long-distance relationship is harder than Steve ever thought it would be, and so he resumes life the only way he knows how: fighting the bad guys, following orders. It’s only a matter of time before his past catches up with him, and brings about a man he thought he'd lost forever…

Keep On Wanting:
After unleashing Ultron onto the world, Tony is haunted by the terrible vision of his future: The Avengers. Steve. Dead. All because of him. And when things just can’t get any worse, Tony has to make a decision: How much is he willing to sacrifice for his friends? For Steve? How much is he willing to give up? As the end of the world is coming nearer, Tony and Steve have to embark on a path less traveled together. Can their love be saved, or will all those secrets slowly rip the two apart?

Take It All Away:
Steve and Tony love each other—that would undoubtedly always be true. However, there might just be things that don’t care for love, that don’t care what it means for the two to take different sides. Things that none of them could’ve foreseen. Things that might just rip everything apart.
When the United Nations attempt to put restrictions on the Avengers, Tony has to admit that the pawns had been in place for a long time, he just hadn’t dared to admit it to himself. And now, it is simply a matter of who will move first—and more importantly: in which direction.

In the aftermath of the Second World War, Erik Lehnsherr -- survivor of Dachau, former resistance fighter in Occupied Europe -- joins forces with US intelligence to hunt down escaped Nazis. A sensitive mission in Rio de Janeiro calls for Erik to recruit a new operative ... one nobody is sure whether to trust. Charles Xavier is the stepson of convicted Nazi spy Kurt Marko, a rapidly worsening drunkard and a homosexual who hardly even bothers to hide his predilections. Hardly ideal.

But Charles is the only person with any chance of getting close to Sebastian Shaw. The one man who might allow them to complete the mission.

And although Erik's business is keeping secrets, Charles brings something out in him that he's worked desperately to hide --

Pine Lake Oasis - infiniteeight - The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
When SHIELD gets intel that an arms dealer might soon be receiving Chitauri technology, Fury sends Clint and Coulson undercover to establish surveillance, ingratiate themselves with the arms dealer and his right hand man, and possibly intercept the sale. The catch? The arms dealer and his lieutenant are apparently posing as a couple, which means the best way for Clint and Coulson to get close is to pose as a couple, too. The longer the op goes on, the more Clint wonders which relationship is more real.

I (created from fantasies) exist solely for you - Mizzy - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Six years ago, without the Avengers Initiative there to save the day, scientist Dr. Eric Selvig sacrificed himself to save the world, the almighty demi-god Thor was lost to a terrible storm, and vigilante Iron Man – spotted with a nuclear weapon trying to take advantage of the situation – was forever labelled an enemy of SHIELD.

This is a comic book office AU, where Steve is defrosted a year too late, Thor has forgotten who he is, and no one knows Tony is Iron Man.

Also includes: office pranks, inappropriate post-it notes, and superheroes who like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain

Heart = Target - QueenMegaera - James Bond (Craig movies), James Bond (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
It starts almost as a game: some mutual flirting, just for fun. But how can you tell when it's getting out of hand? And when is it too late to stop the ball rolling?

Passing the Test: This is the weirdest turn Q has ever seen a mission take. In his wildest dreams, he'd never thought he'd be forced to kill a man, chat with a bunch of giggling girls, and sit in James Bond's lap all in one evening.

A Part to Play: James wants to figure the Quartermaster out. Q thought he had Bond all figured out already. When Q's expertise is needed to bring down another mastermind, neither of them knows what they're in for.

Saving the World (Is Totally a Date) - Wordsplat - The Avengers (2012), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Tony discovers Stane's betrayal while he's still being held captive. When he escapes, he sets out to ruin Stane as completely and ruthlessly as he can, playing up his PTSD and quitting his job to destroy Stane quietly from the outside. He also picks up a teaching job-all Pepper's fault-and oh, right, becomes a supervillain. Okay, that one was Tony's fault, but it was totally an accident.

In the meantime, a certain Capsicle is defrosted a year early, and is assigned the task of capturing the notorious Iron Man. It's not going particularly well, if the embarrassingly high number of times he's been kidnapped in the past six months is any indication. When SHIELD decides to help him "adjust" by getting him a teaching job, Steve is skeptical; but then there's Tony, and Steve finds he doesn't mind the 21st century so much after all.

Mercenary - BootsnBlossoms, Kryptaria - James Bond (Craig movies), James Bond (Movies), Skyfall (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Five years ago, Commander James Bond of Her Majesty's Royal Navy left England in disgrace, escaping a court martial -- and what should have been a promising career in MI6 with Alec Trevelyan, his oldest friend. He becomes a mercenary, selling his military expertise to the highest bidder, though not once does he act against England or her interests.

Now, new intelligence has possibly located Bond in the United States, and Alec is tasked with the mission to bring him back to MI6. But to do so will require a very unique type of field operative -- one Bond will never suspect.

Enter Aidan Green, codename Q.

I Never Promised I'd Play Fair - Espoir - Inception (2010), Titanic (1997) [Archive of Our Own]
“Unless this ship is fucking sinking you do not have permission to break down the door!” Arthur yells, voice still rough with sleep, but seriously what the hell-

There is an ominous pause.

And then Eames breaks down the door.'

 A job goes spectacularly wrong in the middle of the Atlantic and, for once in their lives, Arthur and Eames end up playing the good guys. They fall for the trick, fall for temptation and ultimately, finally, fall for each other.

(Based shamelessly on the Titanic. Except there are no pointless deaths- LEO JUST FIND ANOTHER BLOODY DOOR WILL YOU?)
