so there are magic aus and i love magic aus so much but i would also like to propose a concept: magician au. boyfs magician au. several of them. HEAR ME OUT

  • street magician michael keeps tryna flirt with the cute stressed out guy who passes by this street at this time on the dot every day with increasingly complicated yet perfectly executed magic tricks and sleights of hand. business man jeremy heere is smitten by michael’s wicked smile and light fingers (”how did you steal my watch it was on my wrist” “magic” “fuck off”), but has no idea how to convey any of this past blushing and nodding and “haha, yeah, that’s my card.” right until michael does a trick, and jeremy unfolds the card he’d been holding to see a receipt with something scrawled over it. “finally foiled, michael. this is definitely not my card.” “no, no, it isn’t. it’s, uh. it’s my number.” “what.” “can i get yours too?” “what.”)
  • post-canon or no squip, jeremy decides to take up magic tricks as a hobby in senior year and he’s fucking awful at it, it hurts to watch. but michael, not wanting to get jeremy down, goes out of his Goddamn Way to make it Look Like every trick worked. on the flipside, jeremy KNOWS he’s awful but he’s so endeared and entertained that he just….let’s michael keep going on his mission. (”is this your card? “uhhhh no it’s no–” *MICHAEL IN THE BACKGROUND MAKING WIDE GESTURES THAT MEAN ‘PLEASE JUST FUCKING SAY YES’* “—ooot not my card. Not not my card. This is totally my card.”)
  • jeremy and michael are 10 years old and are gonna do magic tricks for their school’s talent show, but an hour before the show, their rabbit (named humphry) goes MISSING. 
  • jeremy and michael, best friends extraordinaires and, just recently, birthday party magicians on weekends for extra cash!!! it’s pretty great. michael is a fantastic showman and kids love jeremy and their act is AWESOME, if michael may say so himself. but ohhh geez, michael keeps getting weird stomach feelings whenever he sees jeremy, clad in a cheap magician top hat and cape, kneel down to make a balloon animal for a little girl, or succeed in making a shy kid laugh, or smile and cryptically say “it’s magic”, with a dorky wiggle of his fingers whenever kids ask him how he did something. (”we did good today,” jeremy will tell him later, packing up their stuff. jeremy will tell michael that and pat him on the shoulder. michael’s breath will catch and he’ll think, huh. it’s magic.)

MY “TO BE WRITTEN” FIC COLLECTION

First in Friendship (A Parks and Recreation AU)

a collaboration with @dreaminglikeeames

Meet Steve Rogers, the Deputy Director of the Pawnee Parks and Recreation Department. He throws himself into each and every project with an unmatched passion, always ready to serve the people of Pawnee, and he drags the rest of the Parks and Rec staff along with him. In the midst of running a children’s concert series, operating the city’s parks, fending off the shockingly aggressive raccoon population, and dealing with the passionate citizens of Pawnee, Steve has one overarching goal, a project that will be the beginning of a prestigious political career: turning Municipal Lot 48 into a beautiful park. 

As a result of the City Council’s incompetence and mismanagement, the governor dispatches a team of state auditors from Indianapolis, throwing a wrench into Steve’s grand plan. Sam Wilson is gregarious and unfailingly positive, while his partner, Peggy Carter, is prickly and inflexible. Steve tries to protect his city and his department from the budget cut machete, but the City Council’s damage is too severe. The government shuts down, but Steve is bound and determined to fix it. He is known around City Hall as the “Man With a Plan”, after all. (He is alternatively known as “that tall blond pain in the ass”, but he prefers the first one.)

Steve rallies the Parks and Rec team (plus a few other friends), and together, they bring back the Harvest Festival, an old Pawnee tradition. Steve finds himself in the midst of an uphill battle–fighting a brutal flu, bad publicity, lack of resources, the threat of losing their department entirely, a curse, an evil librarian, and a burgeoning crush on a colleague–all in the name of providing a service to the town he loves so much.

Featuring: Nick Fury as Director of P&R, Natasha Romanoff as his assistant, Clint Barton as the shoeshine guy, Thor Odinson as the office manager, Tony Stark as Steve’s assistant and department scheduler, Bruce Banner as the office accountant, and James “Bucky” Barnes as Steve’s best friend and nurse extraordinaire.

  • Supergirl: Hi. Uh, Kara Danvers sent me to get you.
  • Lena: Uh, weren't you the one there when Rhea invaded the planet and took me prisoner?
  • Supergirl: Right...yes. But I told Kara Danvers and she then sent me to get you.
  • Lena: Uh-huh. Bit like when you flew here on a bus.
  • Supergirl, laughing nervously: Right! Exactly like that.

check out my other requests

In your honest and unbiased opinion, whoever suggested for monthly video game nights to become a tradition in the BigHit Dormitory should be evicted immediately without further notice, and judging by the loud hooting of the smiley boy sitting beside you, signs were pointing to him as the prime suspect.

“Jung Hoseok, if you don’t shut your fucking mouth in two seconds, I swear I’m going to throw all your Bearbricks out the third floor!”

“Oh, lighten up, Y/N! You’re just mad because Team Iron Man is beating the crap out of your shitty Team Genius!” He hollered, earning him three high-fives from his other teammates. (A fat shame really, because normally you appreciated the company of cute Jungkook, kind Jimin, and friendly Taehyung. Right now, however, you were ready to shove your controller up their annoying shitholes.)

You see, the problem of video game nights was this: Jung Hoseok, your sweet, sweet boyfriend of 2 years, took Mario Kart way too fucking seriously, and it was starting to give you a migraine.

You point your eyes pleadingly at his last teammate, your one and only best friend Kim Namjoon, pacifist extraordinaire. He only smiles sheepishly back at you.

“Sorry, Y/N. If you can’t take the heat…” he trails off, shrugging his shoulders. 

The whole room is a cacophony of OOOOH HE FUCKING SAID THAT and NAMJOON IS DEAD plus every other variation of the phrase from each person in the common room. You huff indignantly, crossing your arms in a show of weak fury.

You feel a soft pat against your shoulder. Your slightly lethargic teammate Min Yoongi offers you a sly grin, a mischievous twinkle in his eye. You pause in your bickering with Hoseok long enough to raise your eyebrow in confusion, before sudden realization hits you like a bullet train.

This is the man notorious for cheating in every single game of Monopoly. If Min Yoongi didn’t even have the dignity to be a decent human being during a board game, what was stopping him from playing dirty at fucking Mario Kart?

“Alright, Team Iron Man,” Yoongi scoffs, cracking his knuckles with concealed determination. Kim Seokjin looks up from the screen and makes eye contact with the two of you, before it dawns on him that Yoongi was about to get fucking serious (or as serious as Min Yoongi could get.) You could barely restrain the evil smirk from making its appearance on your usually angelic face.

You spare a glance at your boyfriend, who unlike his group mates, had noticed the slight change in atmosphere around your team. He sends you a pointed look, wondering what devilish plan your teammate could possibly be concocting.

You only smile sweetly back.

“Let the next round begin!”

Fic prompt!! Modern AU cassian training feyre in a gym owned by Rhys

Funnily enough, I was considering making Cassian a trainer for another au fic prompt, so this works! This fic got a little angstier than I intended and I hope I dealt with it okay. Hope you like!

AO3 Linkage

Normal

I was nervous. Fighting wasn’t really my thing.

“But it’s not fighting!” Mor, my eternally pesky bestie, insisted. “It’s kickboxing and you promised to come!”

When I came home last week late one night, it had been impossible to hide the bruise blooming on my face. It still hadn’t gone completely away.

Mor was adamant I do something, but I wasn’t thrilled with the idea of reporting the a-hole who’d done it. He was just some bloke who’d smacked my face, grabbed my purse, and ran. I didn’t get a good enough look at him to give the police anything to go off of, so short of halting my bank cards and filing for a new driver’s license, I was content to call it with a doctor’s visit.

“At least take this new kickboxing class with me,” Mor had pleaded. “It’ll help you get your mojo back and teach you a few moves to protect yourself should,” she motioned sadly at my face where the bruise covered my cheek, “that happen again. Plus, Cassian’s pretty hot to look at working out, even if he is a total ass.”

I scowled at her. “Don’t tell me that’s why you’ve been going four nights a week since January. Just to sleep with the instructor, really, Mor?”

“Don’t give me that look, Feyre,” she snapped. “I slept with Cassian the first night I met him and that was ages ago.”

“You… what?! What about Az?”

She shrugged. “They’re friends and this was way before Az. I’ve known Cassian for a long time. He’s friends with my cousin who runs the gym we’re going to. And besides, trust me when I say Az has nothing to worry about. Cassian’s ego is a lot bigger than his-”

Prologue  Chapter One  Chapter Two  Chapter Three  Chapter Four  Chapter Five

Summary: Y/N L/N has just gotten her big break into the world of acting with an Oscar nominated role in a hit new movie. Everything is looking up for Hollywood’s newest favorite as she lands an audition for a movie, reading with the Sam Winchester. Unfortunately for Sam, first impressions can be tough, especially with an older brother newly checked into rehab clouding your thoughts… Though Sam is mesmerized instantly by Y/N’s talent and personality, she is left to believe he’s a stuck up, rich actor with a superiority complex. Sam is determined to work with her, and decides he has to mend things between them at the upcoming Academy Awards. Will he succeed in winning her over?


Sam Winchester looked like quite the character. He was wearing a warm coat over his Victorian suit to keep warm in the chilly Canadian spring. He stood a little ways away from the section of public gardens they had sectioned off for filming. He held a cell phone to his ear, talking to his brother.

“How did the flight go?” Sam asked, concerned.

“Could’ve been worse. The in-flight drinks were offered but Benny kept me honest. He also kept the paparazzi away when I was at LAX.” Dean sounded tired.

“When you get to set you can go straight to my trailer if you want. Try to get rid of the jet lag.” Sam suggested.

“It’ll be like all those times I crashed in your dorm when you were at Stanford.”

“Hopefully less traumatizing this time, though.” Sam chuckled.

“Little brother, you know I can’t make any promises.” Sam could hear the smile in Dean’s voice.

“Fair enough, Dean. I’ll see you soon.” Sam hung up.

He slid his phone into his pocket and headed back towards the cameras, microphones, and crew. He settled into a chair next to Gabriel. Y/N was scrolling on her phone while her hair was being fixed. He noticed she chewed on her lip a little when she concentrated.

Y/N looked up and noticed him staring. She smiled. Sam grinned back, feeling his heart speed up.

In her hand, Y/N’s phone buzzed with a text alert. She was thrilled to see it was from her best friend, and screenwriter extraordinaire.

Summary:  Fresh off a particularly brutal case, Mulder tries to finally make good on his promise to take Scully on a nice trip to the forest, only to stumble onto evidence that there may be more to a local urban legend than just rumor and superstition.

A/N: Special thank yous to @kateyes224​ for being the best friend and beta extraordinaire for this beast, @2momsmakearight​ for the non-stop brainstorming, and @gilliansboobs​ for the unwavering support through my late night meltdowns while writing this and the amazing gif and banner.  I couldn’t have done this without you guys xo




PART 1

Her shoulder muscles screamed at the tension that had twisted into them, the hours of hunching over the paperwork of the case and his profile notes etched out sloppily across lined sheets.  The rolling of her neck did little to pacify the muscles, instead they coiled tighter and burned like fire up to base of her skull.

The keypad above the doorknob beeped twice and flashed a green light as Mulder swiped the card and unlocked the door to their motel room, then stepped aside, allowing her to cross the threshold first.

“I’m exhausted,” she said as she dropped her coat onto the chair.  Neither of them made a move towards the lamp, content in the quiet that the darkness offered.   Instead, he pressed his chest to her back, his arms wrapping around her waist, and a deep sigh reverberated through her signaling to him that her eyes had drifted closed and she was finally allowing herself to relax.  The past few days had gotten to her just as much as him, though she’d never admit that to him.  Always the strong one.  Always ‘fine.’

“I’m sorry you got as wrapped up in this case as you did,” he whispered in her ear, his arms tightened around her.  “As much as I appreciate that you were there, I hate that you had to see me that way.”

She turned in his arms, running her hands up the length of them to the back of his neck, pulling his face close enough so that she could press a kiss to the tip of his nose.

Loving Your Work by @dettiot - Let’s be real. We all thought of Olicity when we watched The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Don’t lie. I see you. Well, Mel actually did something about it! Felicity Smoak, a chop shop girl, gets rescued from East Berlin by suave CIA agent Tommy Merlyn, barely managing to escape the relentless KGB agent Oliver Queen. Despite their differences, the trio teams up, with a little (a lot of) coaxing from their respective intelligence agencies, to rescue Felicity’s father – and the world – from Nazis.

Training Session by @felicityollies - Felicity wants Oliver to train her in self-defense. Despite her insistence that he won’t throw her on her back, she finds out she’s wrong. So, deliciously, wonderfully wrong.

30 Minute Dinners for Busy Weeknights [Olicity Buzz] by @yespleasehawkeye - Inspired by a Buzzfeed post, this story includes so much fluffy Olicity + food with a dash of sad angst at the end. I would not be mad with a sequel.

Bonnie and Clyde by @felicityollies - Dark!Olicity. Felicity and Oliver are criminals and they meet when trying to jack the same car. The rest is (sexy) history.

Dinner (and a grilling) by @juleswritesallwrongs - Part of the infamous Vegas!Verse (which totally lives in all our Olicity canon textbooks, let’s be real), in which Kristina Miles introduces her new boyfriend to her best friend (and CEO of a powerful tech company), her best friend’s husband (and town’s resident royalty/billionaire), her other best friend (tech genius extraordinaire), and his boyfriend (who’s just trying to be supportive.) Fluffy happiness in these dark, Olicity-less times.

Not My Dog by @sentence-fragments - An adorable, fluffy oneshot involving two missing dogs, one of them with only three legs, and TRUE LOVE.

Dear Future Husband by @thecomebackkids99 - Oliver and Felicity are married and Donna drops off a present for her new son-in-law: the diary Felicity wrote at 14 to her future husband.

Recipe for Romance by @lynslogic - Oliver owns a farm and goes to the farmer’s market to sell his produce every weekend. There, he meets Felicity Smoak - an amazing, beautiful woman he happens to develop a massive crush on. But she has a boyfriend. Or does she? (Yes he’s a farmer and not a cowboy. Just enjoy the happy.)

We’re Chocolate Covered Potato Chips by @suchaprettypoison - Another part of the Swooning series I can’t get enough of! Felicity - a girl who’s been on the run her entire life - has settled down with the love of her life and is having a hard time adjusting.

Forwards and Backwards by @geniewithwifi - Oliver’s with the Bratva and can’t see a way out except one. The most permanent one. Until someone – apparently from his future – drops in unexpectedly.

life is a rollercoaster (just gotta ride it) by @ohmyemilybett - Meet cute at an amusement park. The rest is history.

Geas Wolf by @squidbillybrit - Felicity rescues some animals in the night from poachers. Turns out, one wasn’t just an animal. Aka: the werewolf mates au I never knew I wanted!

Out of the Woods. by @mintsea - Season 4.5, aka the Summer of Sexual Tension 2.0. Olicity begins to reconcile after long months apart, but vigilante work waits for no OTP.

Let’s try our very best to fake it by @mogirl97 - Felicity Smoak and Oliver Queen are ARGUS agents forced into a fake marriage for a mission. But there’s too much history and bad blood between them to make it easy.

St. Green Arrow’s Cave for Wayward Vigilantes by @alexiablackbriar13 - I like Lexi’s explanation of this. What’s going on with Evelyn? Where does she live? Where does she sleep? What does she eat? How? She’s a minor and a vigilante!

The Movie Thief by @writewithurheart - In a Blockbuster, Oliver gets his little sister’s movie choice stolen right out of his hands by a sneaky goth.

@trenonny replied to your postsend us some sterek prompts, we is bored and…

One is a street hustler who specializes in three card monty and/or pickpocketing. The other is the person who ALWAYS somehow sees sees through the card swapping or catches them in the process of stealing - but never turns them in. Intrigue and interest ensue?

I only know of the three card monte trick because of Leverage, so this became a sorta Parker!Stiles, Sophie!Derek, and Hardison!Lydia thing (knowing of the show is not necessary to understanding this) (also, this video of the trick blew my mind)

Stiles takes great pleasure in swindling businessmen of all their money.  

Some people call him a hustler—often right after throwing the contents of their wallet at him and storming off—some say he’s an outright thief.  But Stiles doesn’t force people to give him their money, he doesn’t pick pockets (well, anymore), he’s just very smart about what he does.

Lets just say he’s his own kind of businessman.  The people swarm to him, willingly, and he graciously takes them for all the cash they’ve got on them.

Right now, a crowd’s gathered, attracted by his best friend—and inside woman extraordinaire—Lydia, loosing terribly at the Three-card Monte.  

Stiles throws the cards around the table, and the crowd easily follows the queen of hearts around, while Lydia pretends to fumble, and obviously picks the wrong card, to the muttering of the businessmen gathered around her.  A few of them snort, and brag that they could do a much better job.  Hook, line, and sinker.

Lydia winks at Stiles, and dumps a wad of cash on his upturned milk crate, before flouncing off.  The businessmen eye it up like it’s easily attainable manna from heaven, before pushing at each other, eager for a turn.

Stiles looks around the crowd for the richest, cockiest looking man.  Instead he spots, out of the corner of his eye, an atypically dressed guy.  The guy is downright gorgeous—all big hazel eyes, dark scruff, and muscles draped in coveralls, a baseball hat with the logo of a local museum, balanced on his head—his name tag declares him Miguel.  

He’s not Stiles’ usual spectator.  Miguel’s standing off to the side, a sly grin on his lips, almost like he knows, but since he isn’t giving the game up, Stiles lets him be.  

He licks his lips.  Miguel is a tall drink of water, but Stiles has a job to do.  He turns back to his game, and picks a man in a Hugo Boss suit, waving around his wallet like an idiot.

Unsurprisingly, twenty minutes and a few businessmen later, Stiles is counting out a few hundred dollar bills, and the hot guy in coveralls seems to have disappeared into the crowd.  Too bad, Stiles wouldn’t have minded his number.

Three Words More

Author’s Note: Mulder’s behavior in Three Words is…well, he’s an asshole, for lack of a better description. I’ve always felt that there was a lot of potential there to explore the feelings of isolation, depression, and betrayal Mulder must have been dealing with, but the way he was portrayed in that episode, he really just came off as a jerk to a very pregnant Scully.  It was sloppy writing, and the fact that TPTB still wanted to play coy with who the baby’s father was asinine. So here’s some much-needed context.  As always, a million hugs and smoochies to my best friend and beta-extraordinaire, @piecesofscully.


Scully shifted Mulder’s half-empty duffel bag to her other shoulder and turned the key, the lock sliding away like the sound of a guillotine.  Mulder slipped by her, not bothering to take the bag from her.  She tried to ignore the pang of annoyance that flared within her as he brushed past.  The bag wasn’t heavy, but the fact that he didn’t take it from her, had allowed her to carry it up from the car, irked her.  He’d been so solicitous of her before…before.  From the outset of their partnership, Mulder had treated her as an equal, had trusted her to hold her own as an agent and as his partner, but his rigid New England-bred gallantry had always managed to shine through in small, charming ways.  She was so used to him holding the door open for her, guiding her gently with a hand rooted to the small of her back, hoisting both of their bags from the baggage carousel, that for him not to perform this small act of chivalry stung her more deeply than she cared to admit.  Just last week he was dead and buried, she silently chastised herself. She could carry his damn bag for him for once. The baby kicked at her ribs, and she grimaced.  Mulder didn’t notice.

Watching Mulder walk through his living room, the planes and angles of his body at once so familiar and so unexpected, she swallowed past her irritation, convincing herself that her frustration was just a surge of hormonal irrationality. She strode past him and set his bag down just inside his bedroom door.  The smell of Pine-Sol hung cloyingly in the air, and the dark wood of his furniture glowed in the mid-afternoon sun that shone through the open blinds, a few dust motes swirling in the wake of his careful inventory.  

“Must feel good to be home,” she said softly, when his silence was suddenly too much.  

“Mmm,” he hummed noncommittally, spinning in a slow circle, his eyes raking over his earthly possessions. “Something looks different.”  He still hadn’t met her eyes.

Scully chuffed, willing herself not to cry, and squeezed her eyes shut as tears pricked them.  It’s exactly the same, Mulder, she thought. It’s exactly the same as when you walked out that door six months ago. Your suits are still hanging in the closet.  The same stupid movie we were too busy making love to be watching is still in the VCR. Your rent is paid through the end of this year.  Your credit cards are still sending you statements, despite zero balances, because I paid them off and couldn’t bring myself to cancel them.  Your wallet is still sitting on the coffee table, for God’s sake.  I didn’t give up on you.  Can’t you see that?  “It’s clean,” she said instead. 

“Ah…that’s it.”  He walked over to the fish tank and peered in. “Missing a molly.” 

She felt her heart start to hammer.  “Yeah. She wasn’t as lucky as you.” Sensing her mounting despair, the baby shifted within her.  Scully studied him intently as he turned towards her, finally, and perched nonchalantly on the edge of his desk.  He folded his arms, looking at her expectantly, his eyes sweeping over her quickly from head to toe, pausing for a split-second on her stomach before he looked down at the ground again quickly.  

He hadn’t touched her once since he’d finally wrenched himself unsteadily from his hospital bed with the help of the occupational therapist.  After he’d been discharged from the hospital, he’d visibly flinched and pulled his hand away from hers when she’d tried to interlace their fingers as they walked out to the car.  He’d barely strung more than three words together during the five-hour drive back from North Carolina, except to remark that the Thai place on 14th Street was gone, and then again to vehemently and vocally resist her gentle prodding to stop by one of his favorite old delis for a Rueben and an iced tea for lunch.  

He hadn’t said one word about the baby, studiously avoiding her midsection when he did actually look at her.  She wondered briefly if he hadn’t done the math.  Surely, he knew…he must know.

Again, please read Part 1 or you’ll be more lost than Mulder and Scully in this story.

He could feel its weighty presence on the other side, sitting there just waiting for him to move, and his heart quickened as he watched four fingernail impressions press into the thin fabric just inches from his face, scraping painfully slow down the length of it to the ground.  The long, vibrating sound it produced was nearly deafening in the quiet of the night, followed by a staccato clicking, like stone tapping against stone, repetitively.

They were outnumbered.  Greatly.  His eyes flicked to the location of the gun, as he mentally calculated the length of time it would take for him to get to it, and dig it out of the bag.  It would create too much commotion, probably take too long, and he’d risk Scully getting hurt or attacked in the process.

The clicking grew louder as it got closer to the tent wall.

Careful to keep still, he shifted his eyes towards a still sleeping Scully, his eyes pleading with her to stay asleep, to keep quiet.  He’d wait it out, he decided. The animals would lose interest eventually, he reasoned to himself.  They had to.

And suddenly all he could hear was receding footsteps, growing quieter and quieter, then nothing but the crackle of the fire outside.

With a sigh of relief and one last look in the direction of the gun, he turned towards Scully and pulled her close.  It would be a long night.

Ok I totally get that Peter is kind of a manipulative, creepy bastard who's willing to do anything to accomplish his goals...but it's like impossible to find a nice, long, fluffy Steter fic with genuine affection, and respect on both sides. Can you recommend anything? :) ps. I don't even watch teen wolf and I'm still shipping steter so hard right now. I blame you :P

I can’t really say these are all fluffy Steter per se but they all have happy endings (except one) and the Peter/Stiles dynamic is… slightly to moderately mellower?  I don’t know if that makes sense but there’s at least mutual affection and/or respect in them, so yeah, hope you enjoy.
