The Hired Man - by copperbadge - fandom White Collar [Archive of Our Own]
"This job is important," Peter said, standing in front of him in the bathroom. "I want you to look the part."

"Are you angling for fifteen percent on it?" Neal replied, annoyed by the way Peter was hovering. If a man couldn't put on a three-piece suit in the privacy of his own hotel bathroom without his bodyguard bothering him, what was left to him?

Peter took the tie away from him. Neal reached for it, and Peter held it back, out of his grasp.

"These are bigwigs," Peter said, as Neal tried to reach around him. He pushed Neal back and Neal rolled his eyes and let his arms fall, presenting his throat. "They'll think you're a small-time grifter if you don't do it right."

"Peter, I am a small-time grifter," Neal pointed out, as Peter began to knot his tie.

"You're not. Why would you think that? You're Neal Caffrey," Peter told him. "Cowboy up, admit your destiny is to be the most wanted art thief in the world, and let me make you look the part."

Have You Met Uncle Charles? - by winterhill - fandom The Avengers (2012), X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Tony Stark has known Charles Xavier since Tony was eight and Xavier was his Uncle Charles. Now that Tony’s all grown up, Charles vets his dates. Well, most of them. Except for the ones where Charles brings someone who should really be in jail, not a fancy restaurant.

The Salmon, Downstream - by Cesare - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011), Thor (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
So Charles has a thing for picking up strays, right?

Strays like one tall, lean, sharp-eyed, dangerously driven young man on a quest for vengeance against the cruel sadistic son of a bitch who tore him away from his natural family and turned him into a living weapon with the aim of having his protege destroy the world...

I'm talking about Loki, of course.

[Charles's characterization in this vignette is fascinating. -L]

see with clear eyes - by stickmarionette - fandom Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Charles was getting very good - it had been the work of a moment to understand Howard's internal filing system, and then finding what he'd been looking for became a matter of yanking the right strings.

[I want more. -L]
