    Summary

    Blue, extremely blue eyes blinked up at him in confusion, the boy’s gaze lost for a moment and covered in traces of sleep. He was barely opening his mouth to speak when the owner of those pretty eyes gasped loudly, leaning backwards quickly. “Oh my god.” He seemed mortified. “I’m so sorry, I didn’t mean to.” He shook his head, cheeks turning a nice shade of pink at Harry’s gaze. “I didn’t mean to fall asleep on you, I’m so sorry, I truly didn’t realise…”

    “Hey.” Harry interrupted his rambling, those blue eyes looking at him with a slight frown on them. He dropped his hand from his shoulder, tugging his headphones out of his ears as he spoke again. “Don’t worry about it, it’s okay.” Both boys stared at each other, Harry being the blushing one when he thought of the words he was going to say after that. “Um. Actually, I kind of overheard you before on the phone and I remembered this was your stop, that’s why I woke you up. I’m sorry.”

    Or, the one where Louis falls asleep in a bus and Harry is there to catch him.

    Summary

    “Pheromone Disruption?” Eddie asks incredulously, interrupting Doctor Anderson. In his arms three month old Christopher snuffles and rubs his cold nose into his father’s forearm. Eddie pulls the pup closer to his chest.

     

    “Yes, Mr. Diaz,” doctor Anderson gives him a sad smile. Andy has been their family doctor since Eddie himself was a baby. He’s very close to Ramon and knows the situation Eddie is currently in. He knows how his child’s mother left them right after Eddie came from his deployment.

    “Alright.” Hua Cheng said, rolling his shoulders back a few times. “Oh magnificent god of mine, Taizi Dianxia,” he said, grinning, eyes firmly locked on Xie Lian’s. Xie Lian made a show of rolling his eyes. “Grant me your strength so I might vanquish your enemies on this mortal plane.”

    Sorcery grad student Hua Cheng accidentally summons long-forgotten god Xie Lian into his dorm room in the middle of the night. They figure things out from there.

    Globe-trotting, League-fighting hero duo Black Swan and Red Hood are up for admission to the Justice League. If only Batman could figure out who they were.

    --

    Diana reached out and began to unwrap him, holding his hand steady. Careful not to ask another question, she said, “I hope your father deserves your devotion to him.”

    As the lasso fell away, he muttered bitterly, “he didn’t.”

    Summary

    “Fucking—let—me—go!” he snarls, wrapping both hands around the length of the rope, painfully aware of the laughter ringing through the trees; the sounds of feet crashing through bracken; and Tommy—he doesn’t understand why the rope isn’t burning, why the frayed strands aren’t catching—it’s just a length of rope used for hunting, its not important enough to be enchanted, no one would waste coin enchanting rope to make it fireproof when it’s only use is to be part of a snare and nothing more.

    The voices are getting louder and Tommy is running out of time.
    There’s a trail of smoke where something just barely catches alight and Tommy doesn’t bother with a cry of victory—not when he’s not free, not when he’s still suspended up in the air, dangling by his foot, trying to burn through his shoe so that he can gain favour towards escape or free his knife—

    “Oh my god Techno, your snare caught a child!”


    Or: Tommy is running from his past, and finds family along the way.

    Summary

    "You'll change your mind one day," says the innkeep. "The road can't love you back."

    What a strange way to flatten something so beautiful, Jaskier thinks. What a small way to love.

    Or: When Jaskier is hit with a curse that prevents him from having sex, he's lucky that the first person he meets is a Witcher. It's even luckier that Jaskier is used to hitting the road, because Geralt isn't waiting up.

    Summary

    "Into the dark, that thick, deadly silence, Izuku simply states: 'I'm here.'

    A rush of breath, relief. A brief glimpse of crimson eyes, Katsuki leaning out of the gap between two buildings to visually confirm it's him. Scarlet stains his arms up to his rolled-up sleeves, hand to elbow.

    That one glance is all it takes. Izuku closes the distance, more and more red revealed upon his approach: Red boots, red gears around muscled shoulders, red spikes of hair, blood, blood, blood, running down rock-hewn cracks on skin. Red eyes, squinting hazily at Izuku.

    Red Riot, Musutafu's most wanted vigilante."

    In which Christmas traditions and long-kept secrets collide, and Midoriya Izuku is there to pick up the pieces.

    Summary

    He’s getting more gauze for Chim to treat the brunette with the definitely broken nose when the door to the back room bursts open and- well.

    There’s a man standing there. He’s in a soaking wet white t-shirt that clings to his biceps and his abs in a way that leaves absolutely nothing to the imagination. As if that weren’t bad enough, his curls are plastered to his head and his blue eyes are ridiculously wide as he thrusts out his hands and says, “I brought ice. Do you need ice?”

    Eddie drops the gauze.

    Hen seems to be the first one to recover – makes sense, he thinks absently, she’s a lesbian. She must be immune. “We have our own ice packs, Buckaroo,” she says patiently.

    “Right. Sorry.” the guy – Buck, apparently – ducks his head bashfully, stepping further into the room and tossing the bag of ice he’d brought with him into one of the cooler buckets.

    *

    A vaguely Coyote Ugly au in which the 118 keeps getting called out to Athena's bar, Eddie cannot deal with the wet t-shirt-wearing bartender, and Buck's just trying to figure out what to do with his life.

    Summary

    “It’s so cool! I can’t wait to see the turtles.”

    Eddie either; they’d watched Finding Nemo one too many times, both of them always drawn to the sea creatures.

    “Me too buddy, but I don’t think we’ll get to see any of the swimming kind today.”

    Chris frowned for a moment, though it immediately disappeared as a giant tortoise came into view; Eddie nearly missed the turtle for the man that was standing next to it.

    “Wow,” Chris exclaimed.

    Wow indeed, Eddie thought silently to himself.

    Sat crouched next to the tortoise was a beautiful man, golden curls blowing in the breeze. The guy was wearing boots with cargo pants and a flannel, nothing special, though Eddie couldn’t take his eyes off the man all the same.

    “I’m the official turtle guy around here, but you guys can just call me Buck.”

    Buck huh?

    -or-

    the wildlife au that no one asked for (aka i saw those pics of oliver and ran with it)

    Summary

    Finally the house was ready. All renovated, painted walls, furnished and tidy. The only thing left was to cover the well in the basement, but that she would do later, the whole moving making her more concerned about holes in the roof than a basement with half a dozen rats.
    Moving to Neibolt had been the best decision of her life.

      ...
      Skull broke his bones a lot but never really got into fights, so his Cloud flames prioritized healing over protection. Reborn’s Sun flames became more prone to attack rather than healing for the opposite reason, but all flame users can both heal, attack or defend with their flames if needed.
      ...
      he was thankful for Reborn being kindly forced by Luce to make all of them flame resistant suits.
      ...
      Skull doubts that after seeing the other's eyes, at the joy and life that was in them when their flames came as close to a Harmony between two flames of the same type as possible.
      ...
      Not in the place where he had found and lost his first ever Cloud sibling by his own hand.

    Summary

    Andrew fiddles with his keychain. “Oh, you know, I’m not sure if we’ll be able to make it.”
    “Oh, no! Are the girls okay?”
    Andrew turns around to watch as Hazel drools on her shirt and Sienna takes turns between giggling and shrieking at an inhuman frequency.
    He didn’t think far enough ahead to create an excuse to go back home. Fuck.
    “It’s just that the meeting will start in five minutes—” Renee says, dangerously neutral.
    “I know, maybe next week—”
    “— and I can see the Mas parked out front.”
    Damn it.
    ---
    Andrew Minyard, forced to attend a 'Single Parent Support Group' meeting by his best friend, Renee Walker, unexpectedly comes face to face with his old teenage crush. Although looking at him (and Renee), it's not so unexpected to him. Just where have you been, Neil Josten? And where did that four-year-old carbon copy of you come from?

    What other option did he have but to try and return the favor?
