GK Fic: Static (Part 1/4): nightanddaze
The radios aren’t working properly. This in itself isn’t so noteworthy, since the radios are shitty every day, but today they’re especially bad, popping and crackling like the world’s worst hot mike. Not a single word has come through all day. It’s driving everyone crazy. Nate’s had to stop Jacks and Chaffin from starting a radio-themed bonfire.

Ray’s the only one not threatening to destroy his radio. Instead he’s slouched in the driver’s seat of Brad’s Humvee, crooning and caressing the radio like a lover’s touch might revive the signal.

“Harry,” the voice says. “Do you know where you are?”

He almost laughs. Stupid. No, he doesn’t know where the fuck he is. He would love to find out. He’d like some tea first, please. Maybe a nice meal. And maybe his things back. And a car. And a tent. A way out of this life. And he’d really like his family back as well.

“Water,” Harry whispers instead, a raw rasp in the back of his throat.

Bucky looks back at him over his shoulder, mouth quirked in a cocky smile and his smoke still dangling out of the side of his mouth, barely held between his lips. ‘It’s time to get up, Rogers.’

Steve frowns, worries the inside of his lower lip between four sharp points. ‘I don’t want to,’ he says, ‘I want to stay here with you.’

Bucky raises an eyebrow, tilting his head a little towards him. ‘Who says I’m goin’ anywhere?’

It's six in the morning, and Steve is heading out on a run when he nearly trips over a bouquet of sunflowers on the front steps of his brownstone.

For a second paranoia takes over, and he kicks the flowers a little, waiting for them to explode. They don't. They also came with a card, which he picks up. The front of the card has a tasteful picture of the Brooklyn bridge at sunset. It's very nice and sedate, like the kind of card you would buy to give to your boss. On the inside someone has written a short message in big, shaky block letters.


Steve sits down hard on the steps.

Lullaby for Cain - balefully - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
In the mid 1950s, Niall dreams of being a star like the famous pop icon Louis Tomlinson. When he finds himself in the right place at the right time, he does whatever he can to make it happen. Louis's record label contracts Niall to retrieve their prodigal son from the jaws of debauched luxury and force him to finish his latest album. Of course, Niall takes the job. When he finally arrives in Italy, Niall finds Louis living in sin with the film ingenue Harry Styles in a lush villa by the beach. He can't help falling in love with their lavish lifestyle--and with them, as well. Louis proves mercurial and demanding, however, and pushes Niall into a violent mistake that will haunt him for the rest of his life. As he spirals, Niall is pursued by Zayn Malik, Louis's best friend. He's been suspicious of Niall from the start, and as he and Harry close in on Niall's secret, Niall must defend himself in the only way he's able. Even the love of Bressie, a kind and genuine musician from Niall's hometown, can't save him in the midst of this collapsing house of cards. With international police involved and the body count rising, Niall must face the music alone.

Louis can’t help another flinch as the man’s long scarf is wrapped round his tender neck. It’s still warm. Louis touches the soft material. “Thank you.”

The man bears his teeth. “Don’t thank me. Don’t ever thank me.”

When Bucky emerges from the ice, the world is a painfully different place. He doesn’t know how he survived.

Clint Barton asks if he swapped any bodily fluids with the first Captain America. Bucky punches him and then takes the shield.

Clint’s face cracks into a bloody grin. “I think I’m gonna like you, Bucky-Cap.”

Bucky doesn’t know what to make of him, any more than he knows what to make of Tony Stark or Natasha Romanov or Bruce Banner or alien gods that fall from the sky. He thinks he’s got the measure of Phil Coulson, until he dies, as all good men must.

[Steve Rogers falls from a speeding train and Bucky Barnes is left to carry the mantle and the shield. In the twenty-first century, the Winter Soldier is brought in from the cold and there can be no redemption.]

Siege - Kiyaar - Iron Man (Comic), Captain America (Comics), Marvel 616 [Archive of Our Own]
Tony wants to kiss him back, match his ferocity bit by bit, but his mouth is well and truly smashed up. He reciprocates weakly, tries to grab Steve’s bottom lip between his, but Steve is calling the shots, and Tony’s bleeding and exhausted and desolate, so he lets Steve have his way. Lets him grind his head into the ground. Lets him pin him utterly with nothing but muscle and determination.

[Set during 'Casualties of War.' Tony meets with Steve to tell him something important. It all goes to hell after that.][from the prompt: Casualties of War plays out like Buffy's "Smashed"]

“It’s got nothing to do with killing,” he repeated. “I’m quite fond of you alive.” He glanced down at the notebook cradled in his clever fingers, then back up. “It’s about holding your life in my hands.”

[John reads Sherlock's diary. It turns out that this is not his first mistake.]

FIC: bait [Avengers, Clint/Natasha, oneshot]
He says nothing, but for a second his eyes plead with her—don’t do this. There’s pain there, and reserve too, but something else as well, something that looks a bit like longing and way too much like devotion. She wants to wipe it off with her blood-stained fingers, wants to tear it out of him. Until he knows better. Until he understands that she isn’t worth it. [Basically Clint and Natasha angrily and violently spar out their sexually-related issues.]

Phil Coulson is miserable, distrusted by most of SHIELD, and still doesn't remember why.

It's only going to get worse before it gets better. [in which Phil doesn't remember important mission details, Clint secretly does; Clint has magical healing powers that are killing him; Loki possesses him and cuts off two of Phil's fingers; And basically SUPER ANGSTY TORTURE ETC ETC]

“Just shoot him,” he whispers, but it’s like Sazonov flipped a switch by touching her, and she is senseless, completely inside herself. “Tasha, come on.” He stands behind her, moving her arms to hold the gun toward Sazonov’s face. Clint curls his finger over hers and pulls the trigger. He hopes it will be enough, that she will still consider it her own vengeance. He doesn’t want to take that away from her.

He doesn’t want to take anything away from her.

[Clint Barton is sent to kill a 14 year old girl named Natalia Romanova. He makes a different call.]

Bob5 - The Ballad of Natasha & Clint (Black Widow/Hawkeye; One-shot)
Clint could aim for the heart but he always aims for the throat instead. The jugular. One time he caught a bank manager in the eye because he didn’t take too kindly to his expression. Natasha is deadly but ultimately she is his. [Clint/Natasha Bonnie and Clyde AU; Clint and Natasha are psychopaths in love.]

Colder in My Skin
Anything, you almost said, but he cut your lip and you bled for him, felt his tongue lick it away, following the line down your chin. He murmured things into your skin that you couldn't hear, but then he looked at you, hands on your face, like you might look away, like it was even possible to want to. "Justin. I can give you forever."

fic_flail: An Experiment, Of Sorts - Sherlock - John/Sherlock
Faced with a case where a rape victim murdered his attacker, Sherlock finds himself without the required knowledge to solve the crime. He performs an experiment on John, the most suitable subject - but the fall-out is far more shattering than he could have anticipated.

John will never have as much of Sherlock's attention as he does right now. It's a slow realisation that leaves him almost dizzy, lying there on the floor.
