Stiles scoffs. “What are you talking about?”

“The tension between you two rises with each passing year. For awhile there, it seemed to be turning into the sexy kind, but now it feels more like the murder kind.”

“The international community is in chaos this morning in the wake of the deaths of many world leaders. The death of the president of the United States has been confirmed, along with the majority of his cabinet. Great Britain can count itself lucky that the Queen has been found and finally returned to her throne, but her heirs are another story. It appears that both princes and their own heirs are among the casualties of what is being referred to as the Valentine’s Day Massacre. Sources close to--”

reignstarks - Henry/Alex, G --- 3,103

He opened the app and immediately there’s a block of potential new matches waiting for him to swipe through. He slightly moved his thumb left and right to see which swipe is correct before he…swiped away. He thumbed quickly, going by first picture alone until the screen went dark and the words It’s A Match! pop up with his icon and someone else’s.

You and Alex have liked each other!

Henry hits the send message button and paused. He doesn’t know what to say. Does he say Hello? Is that safe? Instead he hit Alex’s icon to pull up Alex’s profile.

The first photo was a mirror selfie and Henry softly laughed but upon looking at it longer, Alex is really, really cute. He’s got a white short-sleeved button up with navy blue shorts on and his hair a tousled mess. One hand was making a peace sign and the other was holding the phone with a bi flag popsocket. Henry felt his cheeks warm. He swiped to the next photo and saw the rest are him gently holding baby ducks. The ducks are also very, very cute but Henry’s a little confused until he reads the bio.

His stain – or line, rather – is not only under his elbow, but winds up right around it and up to his shoulder. It’s weird, because it can’t be related to any real touch, so he gave up rather early on finding out who his soulmate is. It’s just too uncommon for any human and he stopped bothering with the sleepless nights caused by it once he turned nineteen. He had enough of his youth, of his hopeless thoughts about who it might be, who’d take up the challenge of being the person who leaves these lines on his arm. On his skin. Who will turn these lines into shades of colours.

"God," he sighs, as Kakeru stands there rooted in horrified lust, "that's so bad for me but it tastes so good."

"IhavetogonowHaiji-san," Kakeru practically yells at him, and flees.

And he was just teaming up with the school resident theater geek in a covert operation to uncover the mystery of if any of the popular kids had a soul at all.

Voices in your head
barlowbarlow - Jeremy/Michael, T --- 12,142

"Go to bed, dipshit."

"Dude. I didn't say anything." Jake's voice called from the top bunk, heavy with sleep, and Jeremy clapped a hand over his mouth.

"Sorry! I didn't mean to say that out loud." Jeremy said, cursing himself internally. He needed to work on that.

"Talking to our soulmate again, are we?" Jake said, leaning over the edge of the bed to look down at Jeremy and wiggle his eyebrows. Jeremy groaned, burying his face in his pillow.

(In other words- Jeremy has a soulmate that he's been talking to for two weeks. Well, talking to in his head. Everyone has a soulmate, even his roommate Jake, and he's gotta figure out how he's going to survive until he actually meets his.)

haelpack - Jeremy/Michael, T --- 20,738

Michael Mell has over seven million subscribers across his two Youtube channels, while Jeremy can hardly get a thousand followers on his blog. Nevertheless, the two have tons in common. They're the same age, they live in New York City, they have all the same interests. Of course Jeremy was going to fall in love. What could possibly go wrong?

Oh, yeah. Michael doesn't even know Jeremy exists.

It's Jeremy's first year teaching the second grade and he's nervous enough as it is. What if the students hate him? What if he turns out to be a bad teacher? What if he's made a huge mistake with his career?

He thought he'd prepared for everything, for any problem that might be thrown his way. But, as it turns out, the only thing he never worried about was falling for one of his students' dad. Nope, for that scenario, he was completely unprepared.

Common Grace
manic_intent - Klaus/Diego/Ben, E --- 3,774

When Diego had decided to turn vigilante, he’d foreseen that he’d likely be shot at, stabbed, punched, and/or assaulted with any number of blunt weapons, often during the same night. He never imagined that’d he’d ever run the possibility of being kidnapped by a skinny priest in order to be sacrificed to some God of Death—

“And Misfortune,” said the priest, “but we don’t advertise that. You’d be surprised how many people are OK with death but Not OK with a teeny bit of bad luck.”

reptilianraven - Jeremy/Michael, T --- 8,385

See, just a few hours ago in the hallway, Jeremy may have told a little tiny lie to Jake. Just a casual, offhand comment in reply to Jake’s casual, offhand, “Yo, just curious, but have you ever had sex?”

It’s a question so out of the left field that Jeremy practically has no choice but to answer, “Pfft, yeah, of course.”

It's all downhill from there.


The rumor-filled totally false account of how Jeremy Heere allegedly slept with basically everybody.

Yū flushes redder than she’s flushed in her entire life.

Senior Special Agent and unbonded Sentinel John Sheppard gets called up to chase a fugitive headed for the Canadian border. Unfortunately, this means working with Corporal Rodney McKay, RCMP—a Mountie, Guide, and royal pain in the ass.

Will these two pesky individuals be able to put aside their differences and catch the escaped convict? Or will they simply annoy the living heck out of each other and do the job anyway? SSA Teyla Emmagan and SA Ronon Dex look on in amusement while tracking the fugitive and flirting with various Canadian Mounties and Border Security Officers. Because there's not much else to do on this tiny patch of hell.

I don't know if this would be considered a crossover or not. I've borrowed a concept from another fandom, put a slightly different spin on it and then applied it to the SGA 'verse. Pretty much everything you need to know about Sentinels can be gained from the faux-quote at the beginning of the fic. On the other hand, you're going to be lost if you're not tolerably familiar with the first 11 episodes of SGA Season 1.

"Was I not?" Hinata prompts. "What?"

Kageyama rubs the back of his neck and casts his eyes around the room, before saying, haltingly, "Were you, in fact… not looking… for a 'good time' tonight?" '


When Hinata sees a guy walking along the side of the road on a frigid night, he stops to give him a ride like any decent person would. What he doesn't realize is that his grumpy passenger, Kageyama, assumes his intentions are somewhat less innocent than that.
