Zoe: don't do anything stupid

Connor: like what? like get in on a scheme between me and my awkward next door neighbour where we pretend to date so that we both look less pathetic?

Zoe: that's oddly specific. Just don't make any bad decisions

Zoe: don't be that girl at the start of Lethal Weapon

Connor: that girl at the start of Lethal Weapon wishes she was half as pretty as me

He knew she meant well and wanted him to be happy, but this was agonizing. Jared would rather stab his eye out with a fork than have to go on one more ‘our moms think we’re losers who can’t find love’ date.

It was an offer of princely generosity. Ash's mouth was dry. "And what would you have from me?" he asked.

gingerpunches - Kotetsu/Bunny, E --- 39,363

There’s a theory among researchers that NEXT are the next step in human evolution.

NEXT powers are unpredictable, though, so each power is cataloged once it’s found. There’s a database out there somewhere tracking each NEXT power, and with the amount of humans in the world, only less than a third of the seven billion people on the planet have NEXT powers. No power goes unnoticed, and, according to statistics gathered by researchers, no NEXT has the same power or nature as another NEXT.

Each has their own unique power ranging from extremely useful to extremely impractical - and no two powers are the same. It’s the only thing any researcher and genealogist is confident in.

Until Kotetsu and Barnaby come along.

'The first thing Shouyou noticed was that he had been wrong, about Kageyama’s eyes. They weren’t cold. They were instead like the kindling for a flame, intense and boring straight into Shouyou, lighting him from the inside out.

The second thing he noticed was that Kageyama was staring back at him with the same expression Shouyou was sure was on his own face.

Pure, unfiltered desire.'

--

When lowly acolyte Hinata is tasked with bringing his temple's monthly tax payment to the Centurion's Villa, he hardly expects to have an encounter with Kageyama, the lavishly wealthy landowner and decorated army general himself. But Kageyama turns out to be far more interested in Hinata than the money, believing him to be a gift sent from the gods themselves. Before Hinata realizes what's happening, he finds himself agreeing to stay at the villa, where Kageyama can spoil him to his heart's content.

To Hinata's surprise, he soon finds himself growing attached to the brutally blunt yet strangely sweet Kageyama; but he is worried he won't be able to hold the attention of a man who has everything, even as Kageyama starts to become everything to him.

To say that Harry was too surprised to react at first would have been a grave understatement. He wasn’t literally invisible, because he did sometimes need to interact with mortals to do his job, he was just unnoticeable. People- the particular charge he had been assigned to most of all- were meant to see him and yet never actually process his presence. Unless he showed up in their houses- which a gentleman would never do, of course- they would ignore him and just get on with their lives. And yet here Eggsy was, closer than anyone had been to Harry since- well, since he was mortal, and that was long enough ago that Harry could hardly remember it- snarling, “Why are you following me?”

Harry is a cupid. His latest assignment is proving to be... complicated.

Objects in Motion (When Unbalanced)
Mytay - Keith/Lance, T --- 37,685

Lance and Keith are constantly being mistaken for a couple. Lance is highly offended. Keith is quietly outraged.

Pidge decides if she can’t have peace, then she can write an epic scientific dissertation on the romantic failings of two exceptionally dense paladins.

Fake It Til You Make It
nikkiRA - Keith/Lance, M --- 26,884

“No, it’s not that –” Keith tries to backtrack. “We just – we –” he isn’t sure what he’s going to say, he just knows he has to say something before he and Lance are forced to have sex with some weird alien species, while also keeping the weird alien king happy enough to create an alliance with them.

But not for the first time and not for the last, Lance pulls through.

Of course, this time pulling through almost gives Keith a heart attack, because Lance slips his fingers through Keith’s so that they’re holding hands.

“What Keith here means to say,” Lance says, and although his voice is steady, he is gripping Keith’s fingers so tightly it’s painful. “Is that we can’t mate with your people, although we, um, appreciate the offer, because, well. We already are. M-mated, I mean. With, you know. Each other.”

Keith has been working at this huge department store for three years now. He's not particularly good at it. In fact he's awful. He knows he is, and the customers seem to have no problem telling him this. He needs help.

Maybe this new guy who seems to have a natural talent for customer service will be able to give him some tips.

Eren's not a vindictive person. Really, he's not. In fact, he considers himself a big supporter of doing the right thing, fighting the good fight (literally, if need be); basically, he's a big proponent of justice.

Sitting here with Jean's credit card clutched in his hand, Eren's sure this is just the beginning of a long and prosperous road full of justice.

They found it in the locked room of a Royal Navy's vessel, The Fox waiting to take her crew and their new spoils across the deep blue.

It was beautiful. It was rarer than any diamond.

“A mermaid,” Dan laughed, taking a step back and sweeping her hat off her head to hold to her chest. “They were transporting a mermaid.”

It was going to make them rich.

“A date.” Todoroki says, more calmly and collected than he thought was humanly possible.

"Toss for me!"

The boy is grinning, already leading the way onto the court, walking backwards. Unthinkingly, Kageyama starts to follow him, then stops, annoyed at himself.

"I don't even know your name," he says.

"Hinata Shouyou." Hinata steps to the right side of the net and waits.

Kuroko, aka the phantom, is one of the members of the notorious, infamous group of assassins, dubbed the ‘Generation of Miracles’ for their perfect killing record.
Kagami Taiga is a member of a private investigative team (Seirin) contracted by the government, who investigate crimes similar to those committed by the GoM.
So what will he do when the phantom of this notorious group all but falls into his lap? Or, more accurately, into Seirin’s jail cell?

It was, Akashi supposed, his fault. Partially. Probably. After all, if he hadn’t broken his arm in a fall during his bi-weekly horseback riding sessions, Rakuzan would have undoubtedly been the champions for his third and final year there. Were that the case, none of his friends would have descended into insanity, acted inappropriately, and made uninformed decisions in order to dwell there permanently.
As it was, it happened quite differently.

"You still have to pass an exam, even if it's an easy one," Takeda-sensei hurries to add, although he is beaming and bursting with pride at his fluffy little crow chick taking off to play volleyball at a university level.

"I'll pass," Kageyama says with the same kind of confidence he uses when he tells Hinata he'll get the toss to him. He looks straight at Hinata, and Hinata jerks and turns red, wondering if maybe Kageyama knew he was daydreaming about something as stupid as the way Kageyama talks to him during a game. But then Kageyama just points at him and says, "You'd better get in, too."

Hinata, stupid, naive, idiot that he is, grins wide and nods and says, "Yeah!"
