'Cause You're All I've Got Tonight by sorrylatenew | 3140 words
He doesn’t want to think about it, but he fucking does. Opens his mouth about it now. Whispers, “Yeah, get in there,” so low it’s barely audible, but he’s just warming up. It’s a joke, really—he doesn’t want to look at Jonny in good lighting while they’re doing this, but there’s no telling what he’ll say.

He’s not Sid, or Geno. Jon’s a nobody on the team, third-line centre, sometimes second-line winger. Dan’s putting him on the PK more, which is good for everything but his numbers. His shorty against the Rangers last night was nice, but Geno’s wide grin and “JT, full of surprise!” felt more bitter than sweet.

"What are you doing here?" Arthur snaps, refusing to admit to herself that she was startled.

"Hm?" Eames asks, rolling over and squinting at Arthur. "Sleeping." She somehow makes it sound like Arthur's the one being unreasonable here.

"In my bed?" Arthur asks then winces because she knows what's coming.

"Yes, Goldilocks, in your bed," Eames says, just like Arthur knew she would.

Table Stakes by Anon
"Harris drugged me with Somniacin and left me to wake up with the mark and his armed bodyguards, last time I worked with him," Eames says flatly.

Arthur winces. There'd been a nonspecific clause of 'never doing a job again with Harris' in the informal, never explicitly negotiated contract between Eames and the team. Most teams who stick together draw lines somewhere and make sure the rest of the members are aware where they are; it's the only way a team can function unless they're being run by a tyrant and neither Arthur nor Eames have any interest in dictating their little corner of the world.

(This is one of the few times that I'll ever rec a WiP and I might've even lost track of following it halfway through, but I do remember I loved the fuck out of this at the time. Definitely worth a read, and FYI, I also remember at least some undercurrents of noncon.)

The man is standing behind the counter when he gets in--Arthur can tell it's the same man, because there can't possibly be two broad-shouldered tattooed guys working here wearing a hat like that. It's a beanie, it's a fucking beanie, who the hell wears a tank top and a beanie in the middle of May in New York, and it's…striped. There are so many colors in it that Arthur's already overtaxed eyes hurt, taking it all in. It is appalling.

"Why does God hate me?" says Jonny. There aren't too many people out there who know about Jonny's melodramatic streak, but Patrick is one of them.

"God doesn't hate you," he says consolingly. "He loves you, and sent you me to prove it."

(Okay, you don't actually have to know who these people are to find this story funny. If you DO know who they are, it's hysterical.

*Hi,* Tony says. *Tell Steve he's not hallucinating. I seem to have been turned into a cat. Somehow.*

"Tony says to say you're not hallucinating," Peter says to Steve. Then he frowns at Tony, and covers the mouthpiece of the phone. "Prove you're Tony," he says.

*With what?* Tony says, and paces across the table to him. *It's not like I can type with paws. At least I finished my armour maintenance before I went to bed.*

"Point," Peter says. He holds the phone out to Steve. "The kitten may be Tony," he allows.

Secrets of a Successful Marriage by valtyr | 24118 words
Sometimes, Tony had nightmares where he didn't go. Where he flicked off the viewscreen and made a face at the fading image of Zemo's stupid turnip-bag head, and when Rampage said So are we going boss, he said no.

(It's one of the more popular stories around, and for good reason. Tony's living a double life - Tony Stark, husband to one Steven Stark by day, and Tony Stark, Iron Man and super-sekrit supervillain by night/all the time. Then one day, his own League (betrayal!!!) captures Captain America, and Tony's all: !!!! I'm married to Captain America?!!? and has to wonder how life lead him to a path with Nazis and fishtanks and offshore lairs underneath a volcano that may or may not provide a venue for conjugal visits. There is hilarious mental imagery and banter and ~illicit~ kissing. Basically, two thumbs up, will read again!)

"Nice outfit," she leers at him. Steve hadn't really known a woman could leer like that. "You look a lot less like an Atlantic City stripper."

"Tony bought it for me," Steve says and the moment it leaves his mouth he knows it was the wrong thing to have said. Natasha's perfect eyebrows fly into her perfect hairline. She pulls her phone out immediately. From the unholy expression on her face, Steve doesn't want to know who she's texting.

(I read it about...four times in one day when it first came out. It features Tony pining. (You should all really know how I feel about pining by now.) It features Tony buying Steve ALL OF THE THINGS. It features Steve being ridiculously adorable, and Fury being very, very resigned, but proactive about it.

“I believe that could have gone better, sir,” says Jarvis.

“Captain America is a dick,” says Tony, “and I want that written on my fucking tombstone.”

(ANYWAY. In this story, there is much to love, but a quick summation would go something like...this: Tony thinks Steve's a dick before he registers that Steve, you know, has one, Tony has the best answer to the "tell me about your strengths" question in his job "interview" with Fury, and Thor is (rightfully so), Tony's favorite forevermore.

(This is a really fun (and plotty!) read. Cap gets to be bait; it's a role you'd never know he was born to play. He's also great at being kidnapped. I think that Ultimates basically equals Avengers in some...comics universe, in case you're wondering what you're reading. Basically, Tony's a "villain" with eyes only for Captain America.)

"Have I been a good boy this year, or is there a less exciting reason you're still here?"

"Stop it, Tony." Steve slid away, taking about half of the sheets with him. "I didn't mean to stay."

(Here's a story where Tony's a great badass vampire. Steve kinda spends most of the story being a homophobic jac--person, but he is strong with the redemption side of the force. This starts out a bit...gritty, for those of you who do not like such things, but it's important to the plot.

“Arthur, right? I feel like I hardly knew ye,” Eames says, letting go once Arthur slows his pace.

“You didn’t know me. But thanks for letting me have a single this year,” Arthur says.

When Eames laughs, it sounds genuine. “You’re going to get dinner? Are you prepared for the best square of dry, brittle steak you’ve ever had?”

“We’re not friends,” Arthur says in response. Not in a mean way, but factually. Because they’re not.

“Not yet,” Eames corrects, as if Arthur is the one who’s being slow around here. “Meal’s on you, yeah? It’s only fair considering I bowed out to let you have that single and all.”

“We’re not friends,” Arthur repeats, but he ends up going with Eames to the dining hall and getting two holes punched through on his meal card, anyway.

‘Well, you’re obsessed with me, aren’t you? Clearly your subconscious wants me around more.’

He waves a hand. ‘Intrigued, perhaps. Hardly obsessed.’

Arthur smiles. It’s a small smile, but Eames has so few of Arthur’s smiles directed at him that he takes a moment just to appreciate it. ‘Fine. Intrigued. But I’m a manifestation of your subconscious – don’t you think I’d know better than you?’

He doesn’t know how to say any of that. “I think I regret letting it all...” He gestures with his free hand, vague billowing motions that Jonny might be able to interpret, not because they’re comprehensible in any way, but as gestural shorthand for ‘emotional content I’d prefer to leave unstated.’ But then Patrick remembers they’re not vidcalling, and mans up to find some words. “I mean, I guess, letting you go. Or just, letting things narrow down to only hockey. Hockey was always good with us.”

(Oh man. FEELINGS. FEELINGS. So Patrick's daughter and Johnny's son make out at a Cup Reunion party and then it is time for the aforementioned FEELINGS coming to the fore. I would so be the police officer in this story - all overcome by a "is this really happening?! to me?" sensibility. I am kind of a delicate flower when it comes to "somebody retires/gets traded away/stops playing hockey" stories, so I skimmed this story lightly when the first section came up, waited until the second section was up, read through the ending to know what to brace myself for, and then went and read the whole thing straight through and ugh, man.

“You’re really serious here,” he says finally.

Patrick lies back on the bed with a defeated groan. “No, I just thought I’d embarrass myself for no reason.”

(The best part of this for me is when Johnny seems to think that the sex is so great because it's them, and implying like, he doesn't enjoy it as much without Kaner/doesn't think of himself as like, A Proficient at The Sex even though there's enough in Kaner's unreliable POV to say that YEAH DUDE YOU ARE GOOD AT SEX.)

He stays through questions like, 'So...I understand your people wear a lot of...colours,“ and "Are there charities of some kind I should be donating to?“ And he stays through a stilted final coffee, during which not a single word is spoken, but Uther stares very intensely at him the whole time, as if he can find some vital clue to understanding his son's sexuality by way of Merlin's face. (SOBBING. TERRIBLE SOBBING. Honestly, one of the funniest/most adorable things ever.)

"You're so dumb, dude," Patrick says, rocking a little on Jonny's lap in triumph, as if Jonny breaking the kiss was some kind of victory for Patrick. "I could do so much better." But I don't want to, he doesn't say.

“Yes,” Derek said. “I kidnapped you as part of my nefarious plan to murder you by letting you drool on me.” He should be freaking out, he knew it, but this bed was pretty comfortable, and Stiles seemed to be doing well for both of them. (Helpful magic!)

Pure Destroyer by jukeboxghost | 6010 words
It sounds kind of ridiculous, delivered in that monotone, but that doesn't stop it from being blisteringly hot, Jonny talking like that. He has always known how to mash every one of Patrick's buttons. Like, other people might push with a fingertip. Jonny uses his fucking fist. (Uh, wow. WOW. Loved this.)

the best parts of lonely by liketheroad | 26069 words
Trouble is, no one will switch with him. If he could find someone willing, he might be able to appeal to the administration for a change in roommates, but Johnny’s already been at the school for a year, and everyone on the team seems to love him, but they also want absolutely nothing to do with him as far as sharing a room goes. When he asks Seabs, who roomed with Johnny last year, Brent laughs in Patrick’s face for a full minute and then looks at Patrick seriously and just says, “No,” with so much finality Patrick doesn’t bother checking with anyone else. (The boarding school AU!)

i get a good feeling that i never had before, no no by forochel | 4643 words
"I'll carry you out," Johnny cuts him off, ignoring how silly that sounds.

He smiles when Kaner laughs at that, though it's kind of wild and edged with hysteria. "My hero," Kaner says sarcastically, but he stretches his arms out anyway, like a kid making with the carry-me arms. Johnny calls his bluff, and picks him up; it's entirely too easy, now that Kaner's even smaller and lighter than before.

Instincts by grim_lupine | 4025 words
If Johnny closes his eyes at night and sinks into himself, opens up a little for the hidden part of his brain that’s curled-up, lying in wait for a moonlit night, he can feel the easy contentedness of having Patrick tucked underneath him, of his pack being safe and nearby.

Not a Heart of Gold by orphan_account | 14451 words
And Jonny has to cut in at this point, because seriously. “Who the fuck would pay a thousand dollars to have sex with Kaner?” It comes out snappier than he means, but whatever. It’s a valid question. (I would have to agree with this summary note from the author: Kaner's not a hooker but Tazer probably wants him to be)

happiness is not a fish (that you can catch) by liketheroad | 51764 words
Johnny’s shoulders sag a little and he just says, “You might like it.”

“Like what?” Patrick says, his voice going even more brittle, ready to snap.

Johnny’s lips quirk up slightly, barely noticeable, and he says, “Being loved by me.”

(This story grows on me every time I read it. I'm not a big re-reader, but this has kind of become my big comfort story in this fandom. Also, I would like it on the record just how hard I fought for that bear to happen, okay.)

tied if we stay by staraflur | 30067 words
Kaner’s shifted back a little, but just. Jon recognizes the invitation, even though it’s been awhile since he received it. He’s got a couple ways to respond, and he almost always goes for the same one, especially when Kaner’s like this, familiar and engaging and a part of all the best things in Jon’s life. (This is probably one of my top favorites in this fandom.)

Patrick nods dumbly. “So, uh,” he says, jogging to catch up with Jonny as he strides purposefully in the direction of the parking lot, “does this mean I’m grounded, or something?” (See author notes - this story didn't work for some people. But it really worked for me.)

Keep an Open Mind by grim_lupine | 2031 words
He can prod Johnny, carefully, with the mental equivalent of a friendly elbow jab to the side, and have Johnny lower the wall for a moment, flood him with a heady instant of Jonathan Toews’s being. It’s like being patted on the head and wrestled affectionately and sniped at, and Patrick says Thanks and retreats, inexplicably reassured.
