      "Behind a half-collapsed stack of boxes, there’s a ring on the ground. It’s a woman’s ring, and it’s someone’s heart. Someone lost their heart, Marc thinks, and that’s not easily done. Hearts linger, stay close unless they're surrendered or broken or given away, and they return on their own more often than not if they're misplaced. This heart is steady and strong; Marc can feel the beat of it even through his gloves."

      I don't even go here (Moon Knight), but damn, now I want to. Magical Realism and a quest for two lost hearts at its finest.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers is a sad fucking man, but he’s a solider down to his bones, and Bucky’s always been weak to that particular combination of tragic eyes and fistfuls of blood.

    That’s why he’s plastered to the walls and incapable of looking away from Rogers’s heaving chest and cracked knuckles. He doesn’t speak a word, doesn’t even dare to breathe loudly until a vicious punch from Rogers sends the poor bag flying across the room, spitting sand everywhere. There’s no startled sound from Rogers. He doesn’t even freeze, just huffs like he’s inconvenienced by his inanimate victim’s inability to withstand the pounding.

    Bucky bites his tongue so he doesn’t offer himself as a replacement.

     

    -
    Bucky makes a bad decision that snowballs in predictable fashion.

    Summary

    Finally down to the business of reconciliation, Remus found himself rooted a second time. It would be too much to kiss him, the wrong time for admission; he craved simplicity, some obvious rapprochement, something to encourage vulnerability on. Remus wanted to hear his words, his laughter, the tones of his voice. The specifics didn't matter as much as the cause.

    (1996: On the eve of war, Remus and Sirius reacquaint themselves in a ramshackle cabin off the Swansea coast.)

    Summary

    The thing is, it’s never anything new, even when it is.

    (In which Weasel meets Wade at the start of it all, and never manages to escape his gravitational pull. He doesn’t try all that hard.)

      "Wade’s mouth is warm and wet and he doesn’t have a gag reflex. He likes it when Weasel pulls and tugs at his hair, likes to get his throat fucked with sharp little jerks until he chokes on it, likes to be on his knees at Weasel’s feet. He peers up at Weasel through his lashes with that same glint of madness in his eyes along with something else. Something that shouts look at me and don't you dare look away. Something small and broken that says keep me, aren't I being good?"

      This is SO GOOD. Like, a million times better than Wade/Weasel has ANY right to be. Beautifully written, with big, authentic poly/aro/demi feels.

      Even if you can't wrap your head around the pairing, read it for the amazing character study of one Wade Wilson.

    Summary

    Wade’s got a defense mechanism. Grin and bear it.

    But the thing is, Wade’s angry into his bones.

    (Or, this is what happens when a seemingly unassuming, run-of-the-mill hit gets personal)

      In the burned house I am eating breakfast.

      You understand: there is no house, there is no breakfast,

      yet here I am.

      (A deep dive into the past and present of one Wade Wilson. And also one of the most exquisitely heart-wrenching things I have ever read.)

    Summary

    The team, accompanied by a recently recalibrated Bucky Barnes, go investigate an abandoned Hydra base. Steve gets separated from the rest of the group, and discovers something horrifying lurking in the underground base. Or, rather, it discovers him.

    Summary

    Age gap AU. While relieving Scotland Yard of a tricky international case, Mycroft Holmes makes the acquaintance of Detective Sergeant Gregory Lestrade: 27 years old, fiercely committed to his career and with eyes as dark as night.

    For Mycroft, it's love at first glance. But will Lestrade be open to the attentions of an older man?

      "It's six months before Mycroft finally comes to his conclusions. The first three were spent waiting for the memories and the cravings to fade, only occasionally revisiting the surveillance shots of Lestrade. The more fervently Mycroft attempts to forget, the more often Lestrade begins to appear in his dreams. Most of them jolt Mycroft awake in the small hours, panting, either covered in himself like a hormonal teenager or so restlessly aroused he can't breathe until he's attended to the problem. This infatuation with a boy seventeen years his junior is undignified—but it isn't waning."

    Summary

    Deadpool hasn't been back in New York since Peter told him, screamed at him, to stay away all those years ago. He hadn't just barred Deadpool from New York, but also from his heart. So when he sees a familiar black and red clad figure on the news, he knows Deadpool's back, and he's fully prepared to go confront him.

    He doesn't want any of that anymore, anyway. Or so he's been telling himself daily since the very last time he laid eyes on Deadpool.

    Peter's not prepared for what seeing the other man does to his resolve, and he finds what they ended all those years ago picking right back up from where they left off.

      "His hair is golden too, like those delicate little hairs on his knuckles, and Dean is reminded of something his father once grumbled - no grown man has blond hair - and Dean’s own hair had been nearly bleached with sun when he came back from the Philippines, and he had worn a hat for months before brown finally crept back to dominance.

      "Dean is suddenly, achingly aware of the solid heat of the man, the bulk of his body and the width of his shoulders."

    Summary

    The last words your soulmate will ever say to you are engraved onto your body the moment of your birth. This meant that no one knew who their soulmate is until they were gone. It was Lady Fate’s last cruel gift to humanity.

    Peter Parker was born with the words: I don’t want to kill you

    And it was true. Wade Wilson didn’t want to kill him.

      "Birds Eating Other Birds" and "(go home) find yourself happy"

      "Peter wishes he hadn’t gotten out of bed that morning. Then, maybe, he wouldn’t be reduced to this—limp-crawling through the rabbit burrows that is Oscorp Tower, a monster of a man on his heels, bloody and bruised and choking on a panic attack."

      Young Spidey, alone and terrified, is honestly enough to break me.

    Usually when Wade pictured Spidey straddling him and panting from exertion, it wasn’t quite like this.

    or Wade wakes up to Spiderman literally holding an entire building up so it doesn’t crush them. Both of them realize pretty quickly the building is coming down anyway.

    Summary

    “I know I said I was up for anything--” he told Hogarth carefully, trying to surreptitiously slide the files back onto her desk.

    She slapped a hand on them and pushed them back towards him.

    “Mr. Nelson, you are one of the best lawyers on staff, and I am seriously considering the pros and cons of a potential partnership here,” she told him, staring up at him without moving her face or hand. Somehow, the files continued to dig into the meat of his palm.

    “--but it turns out,” he valiantly carried on, “I am actually and suddenly extremely busy with the destruction Jessica will cause in approximately twenty minutes, which will have nothing to do with me or any favors or bribes or anything like that—” 

    (Someone brings Team Red's (and the Punisher's) loved ones back from the dead to torture them for information on their vigilantes. Hogarth coerces Foggy to handle the resulting legal fallout and he is both the worst and best person for the job.)

    There are many differences between Asgardian and Midgardian culture, many of which Thor still doesn't know. He tries his best to adapt, but sometimes his best is not enough.

    In which Peter is NOT Tony's concubine, incest between adopted brothers is NOT permitted on either Asgard or Midgard, and Wanda is NOT old enough to cope the way she does.

    Summary

    Three months have passed since Obi-Wan Kenobi arrived on Tatooine. He has settled into a quiet, uneventful life in the desert, watching over the infant Luke from afar.

    Alas, his life isn’t going to stay quiet or uneventful for much longer.

    OR: The story of Obi-Wan’s years in exile I have always wanted to read. (Yes, it is written in first person, and I know a lot of people hate first person. But this serves a very specific aesthetic purpose; if you think the subject matter may interest you, please try giving it a chance anyway.)
