a building storm - Chapter 1 - outofcases - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
"The news reports, months ago, had said that this winter would be a mild one. It seems like no one really accounted for this much snow."

The story of a boy who can control the weather, and how his entire world crashes down around him.

A reason to believe in something more - Chapter 1 - sorcxita - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Harry isn’t his responsibility, that’s not how it works, and Louis has survived this far with his sanity mostly intact by following the rules and playing the game and, above all, not feeling much of anything.

Survive - Euphorion - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Louis remembers with utter clarity the way he felt in that moment, halfway slid to the floor with Zayn's head in his lap and Niall's feet digging into his side, with Harry's hand fondly atop his head, remembers looking at Liam, drinking him in, the little creases by his eyes, the wide stretch of his lips as he gives up on his impression entirely and just surrenders to his joy. He remembers the utter comfort of it, the little curl of something curious in his stomach, the burn of alcohol in his throat.

It's one of the last times he remembers being able to laugh freely and without fear.

Exactly one year later, he's crouched in the dark, fist closed loosely around the baseball bat at his side, listening. His back's pressed against the end of a bar, which feels wooden and shitty through his thin t-shirt and he makes an absent sort of note to be careful when he moves. The last thing he needs is to cut himself on a fucking loose nail or splinter. The smell of his blood would be like setting off a goddamn flare.

Zombie!AU, by which I mean, Zombie Apocalypse Future!fic. OT5 with definite Lilo and I suppose Narry focus, but really everything under the sun.

Uncharted Shores - Chapter 1 - Suzie_Shooter - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Written for a prompt of "the plane taking the boys to LA crashes and the boys are left alone and alive on a deserted island. They're the only five survivors on the plane. As time passes, they find that they will most likely never be rescued and go about settling down. (Building a shelter/house, harvesting food, etc). Just when they've finally settled in, and given in to the romantic relationship between the five of them that was bound to happen, rescue arrives. Back in the real world, they have to adjust to the real world again, but can they leave their relationship behind on the island? Or would they be happier staying the way they were?"

this is a back alley - Febricant - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Here is the only thing you know: the body remembers.

Holding a knife feels as natural to you as walking, running, slipping in under someone’s defenses and wrapping your metallic fingers around their throat.

Here is the only thing you know how to do: pull the trigger. Wrap your hands around hilts and push blades into bodies. It’s all just meat.

we did not make ourselves - M_Leigh - Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
It is like steel, the determination inside of you that tells you you will achieve this, that you will find him. Nothing will stop you. You are two sides of the same coin, you and he: he cannot escape you forever.

Bucky runs. Steve follows.

Some of Natasha’s memories are true, some are false, but throughout all of them runs one thread of remembrance: a cool metal hand gentle upon her back, tender against her cheek, tight around her throat; an assassin with a crooked smile and eyes like winter.

With My Feet Toward the Stars (let me remember you as you were when you existed) - kariye - Star Trek (2009) [Archive of Our Own]
When Kirk lays his hand on the interior of the ship as he sometimes does, as an affectionate pat or with lingering consideration or as an expression of his joy to be back onboard, the ship shudders. Spock can feel his balance shift in those moments. Even when Kirk simply leans against her wall, an ecstatic tingle runs through her.

Sea Change - jouissant - Star Trek: Alternate Original Series (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
As the five-year mission gets underway, Kirk and Spock are on course to develop a friendship--or something--that will define them both. Then, a poorly-timed away mission changes everything. Before they can begin to deal with the fallout, Jim disappears. With his captain presumed dead, Spock has no choice but to accept a promotion and try to move on. But when he starts experiencing disturbing visions, he gradually begins to suspect that Jim may be alive after all. (A canon-divergent AU assuming they began the 5-year mission following STXI.)

“I know you're the next thing to a vagrant, drunk as a skunk before sundown and picking bar-fights at the end of nowhere. Your father saved a lot of lives before he was gunned down, God rest his soul. You've got him in you, somewhere, staring out of your eyes, wanting something more, something better." He turned and headed for the door. "You decide one of these days you want that, you deserve that, you head north. Enterprise is about half day's ride north from Fort Smith."

Dreaming Electric
[ New York City is still rebuilding in the wake of the Chitauri army when the biotech virus Extremis is released, upgrading a lone domestic terrorist into a posthuman threat.

cashing in our bad luck - girl0nfire - The Avengers (2012), Marvel [Archive of Our Own]
Stories like theirs don’t have heroes.

Which is good, Steve thinks. It’s good because heroes shouldn’t know the best way to gut another human being with a crowbar; heroes don’t sit by a hand-crank radio screaming into silence.

Heroes don’t wonder what it would be like to join the villains.
[James, Steve, and Natasha stick together in a New York where the dead walk again.]
