Leverage OT3 Recs: Getting Together (Alec or Parker POV)

The OT3 get a lot of development on screen as a relationship, but we never actually get to see them actually figure out that they’re all in love with each other. Here are my favorite stories of how Parker, Eliot, and Hardison said “yes” to their relationship, told primarily from Alec or Parker’s point of view. A heart symbol next to the fic (❤︎) means it’s a special favorite.

Feel free to reblog with your own additions!

The 40 mg Job by norah (3834 words, rated T)

Eliot grunted disbelievingly. He was right up in Alec’s face, angry and dangerous, and when he grabbed a fistful of Alec’s t-shirt Alec closed his eyes, waiting for the blow to land.

Eliot kissed him.

Parker’s time at the Second Act rehab clinic causes her to re-evaluate her priorities and try something new. Along the way, she gets Eliot and Hardison to re-evaluate their priorities too.

Fair Share by shaenie (9579 words, rated E)

“Eliot’s the baby spoon,” Parker announces, and rolls off of Alec to shove Eliot on his side. She immediately spoons in behind him, and then looks over expectantly at Alec. “You’re the big spoon,” she says impatiently, and Alec rolls over to spoon her, and, by extension, Eliot.

He tries very hard not to laugh. “How you doing over there, baby spoon?”

“We’re taking turns being the baby spoon,” Eliot says grimly, but Alec can tell he’s having a hard time being grumpy.

Leverage is pretty big on food as a metaphor for love, especially when it comes to Parker, and this fic does a great job showing us Parker falling in love with Eliot and Hardison as a series of meals.

First on the List by thingswithwings (7323 words, rated T)

Parker opens her mouth, and this time Alec has the presence of mind to cover his ears before she yells. “Eliot!”

“What!” Eliot yells back, from wherever he is. He sounds grumpy, but Alec hears his footsteps hurrying on the wood floors anyway.

“Come get minor surgery from us,” Parker yells.

Leverage fandom has a way of making the strangest things romantic – pretzels, black noodles, and in this fic, implanting trackers in each other’s arms. But thingswithwings really imbues it with meaning, Alec’s trackers inside all of them, so they’ll never lose each other.

The Helpful Hacker’s Guide to Gummies, Geekery, Grifting, Guys and Good Teamwork (or the Alec Hardison Doesn’t Panic (Much) Job) by @poppetawoppet (9567 words, rated T)

Step One: make all of Hardison’s favorite foods.

Step Two: Make sure to stay as undressed as possible in the bedroom. Suggest sleeping separately but come up with excuse to sleep together.

Step Three: Pick out movies that Hardison likes, make a slight fuss/annoyance

Step Four: Tell him about the time you used Star Trek to get a guy

Step Five: Let Parker in on the plan somehow

In which Eliot, Hardison, and Parker all try to con each other into a relationship – except, of course, that they don’t have to. A.k.a., the one where Hardison and Eliot are fake married.

It’s How You Land by BlackEyedGirl (4121 words, rated T)

It is true, Parker guesses, that on their jobs they turn out to need all sorts of unexpected things. But she doesn’t think that’s what this is about. Hardison likes building homes.

This fic takes a silly premise – the team has to build a flying house – and turns it into a sweet story about Parker, Hardison, and Eliot figuring out their relationship. Parker’s POV is so on point in this fic.

Parker’s Surprise by zvi (813 words)

Parker says, “It’s complicated and you’ll laugh at me.”

Alec responds to the twist of her lips that says: if you laugh at me, I’ll have to kill you, which I don’t actually want to do.

It’s a bit of a trope in this fandom that Parker is super direct about talking about sex, but it’s a trope I really enjoy. Parker gets Hardison and Eliot together and helps them get right to the point of what they want.

❤︎ Shelter Me by thingswithwings (21,193 words, rated E)

“Do you want to be our dog now instead?” Parker asks, without guile. “Our little pitbull?”

Eliot’s silence is heartbreaking, and so delicate that Alec can’t bear to disturb it, so he waits as it spins out before them, fine as the thinnest thread of blown glass.

After a long time, Eliot says, “I think so.”

“That’s what you already are, anyway,” Parker says. “Our loyal protector. Part of our family.”

In which Eliot knows he isn’t a good man, but he thinks that for Parker and Hardison, he could be a good dog. In this fic, a dom/sub relationship is fundamental to how the OT3 is able to healthily function, and it is a beauty to witness. Warning: if you don’t already have a puppyplay fetish, you may develop one after reading this fic.

❤︎ something good can work (and it can work for you) by queenklu (8787 words, rated E)

“’Cause I know you,” Eliot says like he didn’t hear, “I know you’d steal the moon for her if you could.”

“Who says I can’t?” Hardison demands, but Parker rolls her eyes and elbows him. “No, listen, Eliot. Eliot.” He waits for Eliot to meet his eyes, see the truth in them. “I’d steal the moon for you too.”

I absolutely love this fic for the way it shows Parker and Hardison establishing a rock-solid, beautiful relationship with each other, then welcoming Eliot into it. It’s like they’ve built the foundation they needed to be able to support each other and Eliot. And Parker and Hardison’s totally accidental seduction of Eliot is too cute for words. I’ve read this fic three times and I’m sure I’ll read it again.

Track My Moves by summerstorm (3527 words, rated M)

Parker’s hands are climbing all over his chest, underneath his t-shirt, and she’s kissing him.

What the fuck.

Parker breaks away and says, “You’ve been really good to us lately,” and he’s about to ask who ‘us’ is when Eliot walks in, locks the door behind him and ambushes him in a manner similar to Parker.

“So,” Eliot says, glancing at Parker, “thanks. And stuff.”

In which Parker feels the need to thank Hardison for everything he does for the team, and enlists Eliot to help her come up with the right kind of thanks. 

Twelve Steps by @rembrandtswife (3941 words, rated E)

Besides, outside of bed, he was more, well, touchy-feely with Alec than he’d ever been with another guy. They were bros, except that bros didn’t usually share a girl on an ongoing basis. It wasn’t like Eliot had never done a threesome before, but–this was different. Because both his girl and his guy were going to be there the next morning.

His guy. Was that what Alec was?

This fic deals with internalized homophobia in a way most Leverage OT3 fics don’t – the idea that Hardison and Eliot might have some reservations to work past in order to love each other in all the ways they want to. I enjoy the complexities of this developing relationship.

we are for some reason all the time bleeding by hypotheticalfanfic (1581 words, rated T)

Eliot peers carefully at her as she kisses Alec and then crosses to kiss him — and that’s interesting, isn’t it, that this happens right now? Just a soft press of lips, nothing more, nothing like anything at all, just what people do to say good morning, and yet here it is, already, like it has always been this way and Eliot and Alec just haven’t noticed until now. Which, given the sureness of Parker always being in charge, is certainly possible.

In this story, the OT3 fall together into a relationship right after The Rundown Job without even really talking about it, which makes so much sense to me. The line between being together and not is so thin for them that they just stumble right over it without noticing.

anonymous asked:

do you read bluepulse fics?? if so what are your faves?? :)

Sorry for taking so long to answer this one, but thank you for the ask. n.n

I actually read a ton of Bluepulse fics. I’ve lost track of how many times I’ve combed through Ao3 and its Bluepulse tags. I’ve got sooooo many faves, oh my word. (Enough so that I legitimately can’t remember all of them off the top of my head.)

As such this is a short list, but is by no means exhaustive:

  1. Flirting with an Alien is Harder than Fighting Bad-Guys by @angrylittlerainbow
  2. dreams like caresses by @weirdnonsensefandomstuff
  3. Kaleidoscopic by @creativityflowfics
  4. Latch by @mr-mustache-penis (Not done yet, but still so good.)
  5. Él no es mi novio by @crawling-through-ashes
  6. Insomnia by mirrankei
  7. Situations by extremiss
  8. Two Birds, One Stone by MissSynph
  9. How Big is Your Garden? by cruciomysoul
  10. February 14, 2021 by Barkour
  11. Analyze And Suggest by ciaan
  12. and (of my own) Birthday Surprises are Hard When Your Partners are Attached at the Spine

There are a ton more, but if I went looking through everything to track it all down, it’d take me a while.

The Groundspeed of Joy, written by Anastasia-G (aka @irresistible-revolution)

Klaus entwined their fingers so she could spin. Once. Twice. Her hair came loose from its bun and tumbled across her shoulders. She noticed Elijah still lingering by the door. There was a strange, wistful expression on his face that she’d never seen before and it struck her that he was committing this scene to memory, though for what purpose she couldn’t know. One last turn and she collapsed, giggling, against Klaus’ chest, and before she could protest he’d lifted her into the air for another dizzying whirl.

When her feet touched the floor she barely noticed Elijah was gone.

Can’t Stop Won’t Stop

@monstacookieshere’s that other fic rec list I promised I would make for you because you are lovely and wonderful and gorgeous and i’m so happy we discovered each other. Happy reading. 


1.  Of Superheroes and Super Tantrums by starspangledsprocket 

After Steve makes a bad call on a mission, Tony and Bucky are de-aged into three year olds. It goes about as well as can be expected.

Super cute, super fluffy. 

2. And You Needed Someone To Show You The Way by sailorchibi

Tony knows what the team really thinks of him. It’s a delicate balance: they tolerate him because of his money and his toys, and he gets to stay on the team and fight with them. He’s okay with that. So long as he hides the fact that Steve’s and Bucky’s names are written on his skin in the most embarrassing act of one-sided love affection ever, everything will be fine.It just figures that a fantastically stupid villain, a kidnapping plot and a video camera will bring Tony’s well-kept secret out into the open.  

Heavy on the feels. Sorry. 

4. It’s Not An Epic Romance (it’s a love affair) by ErisDea

They come together at the worst possible time.

(And to be fair, the writing on his back and her unmarred skin literally promises that they will never have the romance of the century.)

There is so much threesome porn my head spun a little. But it’s also pretty fucking cute even though it’s kind of hate-fucking and competition for a while. 


5. Salami by L1av

Everyone hears stories about the idiots who have to go to the ER to get random objects removed from their asses. If someone told Bucky he’d be spending his weekend in the hospital for one of the most embarrassing occurrences of his life, he’d probably laugh in their face and tell them to go fuck off. But here he is, in the ER with eleven inches of packaged, cold salami stuck up his ass. To make matters worse, his nurse is really hot. Really hot.

Join Bucky for one of the most awkward and yet comical experiences of his life that leads to self-discovery, trust and maybe even love.

I laughed so much reading this, not as cringe-y as I thought it would be (going to the ER because you’ve got salami stuck up your ass sounds mortifying) and I honestly think more people need to read this because it’s amazing. 

6. Bucky Barnes Has His Shit Together (and Other Lies He Tells Himself) by betty days (sadrobots) ***

You’d think a guy who owns one of the most successful bakeries in Brooklyn, has a million-dollar smile and that antiquated good ol’ boy charm, blond hair and blue eyes and biceps for days, would know what’s what.

But don’t let that fool you: Steve Rogers is a mess


7. Critical Feline Mass by Kryptaria, rayvanfox ***

Adjusting to civilian life is hard for any military veteran — especially for one ex-sniper with a cybernetic arm, a classic Harley, and friends who keep trying to ‘help.’ When Sam Wilson at the VA sends Sergeant Barnes to rent a room from the hottest guy in the DC area, Bucky thinks maybe civilian life is worth it after all. And then he finds out Captain Rogers is everything Bucky’s not: a real hero, a Medal of Honor recipient, and an all-around nice guy. Bucky doesn’t have a chance in hell with him.

Sam was a huge help to Steve Rogers when he left the military. In the spirit of ‘pay it forward,’ Steve decides to rent out his basement room to a vet in need. But when Sergeant Barnes shows up on his doorstep, he knows he’s in for a world of trouble. Barnes is exactly what Steve never knew he wanted, from his bedroom eyes to his wicked innuendos. And he’s Steve’s tenant.

A love story in twelve chapters, including two Harley-Davidsons, a guardian angel, multiple snipers, the only woman who can scare them into behaving themselves, spontaneous kittens, and one attacking sheep.

Bucky’s makeup and dressing habits actually break Steve’s brain. It’s adorable. 

8. Itsy Bitsy Yoga by wearing_tearing

Bucky teaches a Parent & Toddler Yoga class. Steve and his two year old son are his students.

The absolute cutest shit. Steve’s kid adores Bucky. 

9. The Art of Standing by eadunne2

Steve and Bucky have perfect chemistry from their very first scene, and it leaves them both wanting more. But they’ve both learned the dangers of wanting, and for people that practice good communication so regularly, they kind of suck at it.

So they’ll fuck and tease and talk dirty and even dance. They just can’t kiss

Why yes, I’d love a BDSM fic with fluff and feels.

“You’re losing public favor at a dramatic rate.”


Fury glared. “Fortunately, I am smart enough for the both of us and have created a narrow pathway of recovery. This option has a little bit of opportunity-cost, but I’m eighty-three percent sure that it’ll be worth it and it’ll work in the long run.” Nick paused, then amended, “Eighty-two percent.”

Steve and Bucky are famous and pretend boyfriends until the moment they’re not. 

11. Lights, Camera, Action by AustinB***

Steve gets a job as costume designer under Nick Fury for Shield Studios, where he meets movie star Bucky Barnes, and it all unravels from there.

Pining. So much pining and adorableness on set. 

12. Run Your Fingers Through The Knots of My Soul by caelestys

Sometimes Bucky thinks it would be really cute to meet someone in a coffee shop, like in those silly romantic comedies Clint makes him watch. But there is a reason why meet cutes in cafes don’t happen in real life, and it’s because customers suck. And besides, love fades. But coffee? Coffee is forever.

This is a story about love and life–and coffee, which Bucky would’ve argued was probably more important than either of the first. But that was before Steve Rogers came along. 

A nice steady burn. Everything’s on fire. This is fine. 

13. Never Say I Don’t Get You Anything Nice by TheMeaningofHaste

“Buck up soldier, it’s time to get you laid for the disabled kids of America!"Steve groaned, wishing he had taken Tony up on his earlier drink offer. "There will be no getting laid,” he grumbled, his voice hushed in case someone might hear. “This is a charity dating auction, not a prostitution ring!"Peggy smirked at him through the mirror. "Don’t say that before you see who wins you,” she teased with a wink. “You might get lucky and land a fella who’s crazy about you.”

Saccharine sweetness. Seriously. I have a cavity. 


14. Hard Time Forgiving, Even Harder Forgetting by lunacanislupus_22

It takes walking down a crowded street in Brooklyn hours later to realise what the emotion is. He’s passing a small child with its mother, smacking their small hands demandingly against the glass of an icecream shop. The child’s eyes are wet with tears. He shies away from it. Particularly sensitive to the sound of children screaming. It’s only after he’s out of hearing that his head clears enough for him to realise. What he’s been feeling around Steve.


Even when Bucky doesn’t know himself, he takes care of Steve. FUCK. I’M NOT CRYING UR CRYING. 

15. Got Me Going Crazy by FawkesFlame123

“Do you have any idea what you do to me, Stevie?” Bucky growled, his voice deep and husky, straddling Steve’s hips, pushing him down onto the sofa, pinning his arms above his head. “Bucky, what is – oh,” Steve frowned, then, thankful that this was Bucky, not a lapse into the Winter Soldier, and he smiled cheekily, “no.”“God, baby doll,” Bucky growled in Steve’s ear, rolling his hips against Steve’s, so that he could feel just how hard he was for him, “you’re so perfect, fuck, gettin’ me all hot and bothered. Do you even know what you’re doin’ half the time?” Steve arched his back instinctively and melted in Bucky’s touch, in his voice, in the lips that were mouthing along his jaw, nipping lightly at firm skin, making him whine, before, “I’m not doin’ anythin’.”Bucky tightened his grip on Steve’s wrists above his head, rolling his hips again, grinding down on the blond, both of them straining in the restrictions of their clothes, “oh, yeah, then what’s caused this?”

Basically, the one in which Steve is an oblivious sweetheart and Bucky doesn’t know how to deal with that.

Ah, yes, some lovely porn. It’s stupid how much Bucky adores Steve. Fuck me up. 

16. Nothing’s as Sweet as Supersoldiers in Love by heartsdesire456

Informally titled: Bucky Barnes Loves The 21st Century Almost As Much As He Loves Steve Rogers

“Captain America’s mystery lover! That’s what everybody’s talking about.”Bucky turned around as soon as he heard ‘Captain America’, only to see Tony had on some entertainment news report and his latest photo of sleeping Steve was flashed up on the screen beside the person talking. “Hey, what’s that?” he asked, hopping over the back of the couch to land beside Stark.“Your Cap lovin’ gone viral, I guess,” Tony said, turning up the volume.“Rumors spread like wildfire with the first photo of Steve Rogers, Captain America himself, was posted to a comically named Instagram called ‘GodBlessAmerica36’.”

Bucky is that boyfriend. 

17. Super Soldier Drug Reactions and Other Engineering Failures by AgressiveWhenStartled 

Beside Natasha, Steve’s phone buzzed facedown on the table. After the last text, he’d hastily flipped the screen over and stared straight ahead like he’d been caught talking in church. Clint nudged him with his elbow. “Better check that,” he murmured. “Could be important.” Everyone at the table pretended they weren’t looking as Steve hesitantly turned his phone over, blushed so hard his ears looked like they’d been boiled, and slapped it back down again.

Covert missions. Stupid guy is stupid. Nick Fury is so done. 

18. Never Someone Else by Kellyscams

Prompt: ok. sub!bucky post catws, D/s universe where bucky is learning to be steve’s sub again. ((with clarification from prompter: Steve was Bucky’s Dom in a D/s world before the war and before the fall. PostWS Bucky is now recovering and learning to be Steve’s sub again))

KELLYSCAMS IS AMAZING OH MY GOD. Read everything they write. Everything. Set yourself on fire. It will hurt less. 

19. Redefinition by manisseta

They took their time to talk about it, both at home and at increasingly surprising places, like that time Steve had asked Bucky, “But would you want me to tie your feet as well or only your hands?” on a rooftop during a recon mission in Finland, and Nick Fury had gently scolded through the comms, “Gentlemen, surely there’s a better time to discuss that?”

I’m always a slut for Stucky nonchalantly discussing shit on missions. 

20. There is a Church Where They Whisper Your Name by bazanite

What you want and what you know to be true are battling up against each other like animals, tusks locked, breathing heavy into the twilight.

I’m not normally into Second Person but this one is perfect. 10/10. 

21. Persistence of Memory by hollimichele

It’s a nondescript sort of a Wednesday morning when the Winter Soldier walks into SHIELD headquarters, bold as brass, and announces his intention to surrender.

This is honestly one of my favorite fics and I’ve read it about 500 times. 

22. Steve Rogers Versus The Classics by thecommodore_squid

Steve narrowed his eyes. “I’m beginning to suspect I’ve been set up.” “I would never,” Natasha said, feigning shock. Steve sighed.“God fucking dammit,” he heard someone say and looked up.

An AU in which Steve is still Captain America and Bucky is the unfortunate history professor selected to help him understand those references.

Quickly becoming a favorite of mine, simply for the way this person writes Steve’s struggle with the 21st century and how some poop culture would affect him. 

23. Young Heart, Out Our Minds by junko

Bucky posts a selfie of the two of them in bed to his instagram. He hashtags it #goodmorningamerica. Sam Wilson and Pepper Potts retweet it to their twitter accounts.

Steve and Bucky acting like the young men they never got to be. 

24. Shyest by biblionerd07

SHIELD discovers that HYDRA took a DNA sample from Captain America and a DNA sample from the Winter Soldier and tried to breed a perfect supersoldier. Steve and Bucky suddenly find themselves the parents of a three-year-old boy who won’t speak.

The cutest kid fic ever. No mpreg (not that I have anything against it, it’s just nice to see an alternate version of these two meatballs having a kid that is genetically theirs) but IT’S SUPER SWEET AND ADORABLE. 

25. Just Hold Me by shanology

Bucky Barnes is living in Avengers Tower, and all he wants in the world is to be cuddled. He sets out to get his new friends to give him the snuggling he needs, because it’s not something he can ask of Steve yet. Steve doesn’t see it in quite the same way. Also, there are Avengers movie nights, possibly with a showing of The Covenant. Just saying.

These two idiots I stg. 

26. My Soul to Keep by hitlikehammers

They’ve had more second chances than anyone has a right to. They’ve survived the unthinkable, and emerged not only breathing, but together. So they don’t risk it; they don’t play games with fate. Every night, they lay everything out: the good, and the bad. The life-altering and the mundane. The bad haircuts and the shitty cologne. Every night before they go to bed, they make damn sure nothing’s left unsaid between them.

Just in case.

I really like this idea of complete opens with ones partner, just laying it all out on the table every night. 

27. Dream of Caramel by gwyneth rhys (gwyneth)

But none of that explains why right now Clint’s pants are literally on fire and Barnes is pitching an entire five-pound bag of pastry flour straight at Clint’s crotch with his metal arm.

Clint’s POV is what I live for. Super cute. Bucky and Steve are such oblivious idiots, but Clint and Natasha love them anyway. 

28. It’s Always Been You, Stevie by FawkesFlame123

Bucky smirked, his blue eyes light in the evening darkness, his short, dark hair lighting up whenever the streetlights fell upon them, “told ya, punk. Now, spill.” “This really isn’t the time to – “Steve, fuckin’ tell me,” Bucky demanded, cupping Steve’s face now, all humour gone, replaced by worry and fear, “what’s wrong?” “I’veneverhadsexbefore!” Steve said, all in one go and managed to slip out of Bucky’s hold, as he went slack, just staring at him. “There, are you happy?” Steve huffed, his voice was shaking, eyes wide and fearful, worried that Bucky would turn and run, “that’s what’s been botherin’ me. ‘Cause, I-I, you know what, forget it.”

What better way to end this list than with a Virgin!Steve fic? 

Leverage OT3 Recs: Getting Together (Eliot POV)

The OT3 get a lot of development on screen as a relationship, but we never actually get to see them actually figure out that they’re all in love with each other. Here are my favorite stories of how Parker, Eliot, and Hardison said “yes” to their relationship, told from Eliot’s point of view. A heart symbol next to the fic (❤︎) means it’s a special favorite.

Feel free to reblog with your own additions!

Already Here by zvi (1402 words, rated G)

Eliot does tai chi forms when he’s unhappy. Tai chi wasn’t the first formal martial arts training Eliot had, but it was the first that felt natural and comfortable even when he was bad at it. Running through the forms puts him present in his body and his space, in a way that means he’s not surprised when Parker drops in on him. He is shocked when she says, “It’s good. If you’re in love with us. We are. With you.”

Set after “The Low Low Price Job,” Eliot comes back from his failed trip to reconnect with his family, and gets a reminder of who his true family is. This story is so achingly sweet.

❤︎ anything you can give by Thorinsmut (17263 words, rated E)

“Ok,” Eliot said. “Ok.” He hadn’t planned this eventuality, not in his rosiest daydreams before he cut them down to size, forced them into more reasonable shapes. But ‘reasonable’ never had described anyone on the Leverage crew, had it? Of course Hardison and Parker would go about it all backwards, start a relationship with him with the marriage proposal.

This fic has possibly the most romantic marriage proposal possible for the OT3, which feels just right for a fic set right before The Rundown Job, because these three are totally on their honeymoon in that episode – and scorching-hot sex. 

Exceptionalism by subluxate (5028 words, rated T)

“Yeah, Parker.”

“Eliot.” She sounds unusually serious. He tenses. “Take out your comm. I need to know something.”

He takes it out and asks, “What?”

“You know how you like food because it makes you feel something?”

“Yeah,” he says warily.

“Do you ever like people like that?”

I love how this fic fills in the gaps in early Season 5 and shows us the arc of Eliot figuring out and expressing his feelings for Hardison and Parker. It takes scenes like the retirement conversations in The Real Fake Car Job and shows us what they mean to Eliot.

❤︎ It’s a Long Way to Zanzibar by facetofcathy (11,722 words, rated E)

He knew Alec got him hot, got him wound up in some way, frustrated and irritated and horny and lustful and a million other things all tangled together. Parker was simpler, an unknotted cord. There wasn’t the same heat, but there was something, some draw, and it was just possible he did like her, simple as that. With his upstairs brain, anyway. “Yeah, yeah, I do,” he said. “I like you just fine.”

The OT3 go on a road trip. One of my favorites in the fandom. The Eliot POV here is sublime – his love for Parker and Hardison just bleeds through every word. 

like you know i am better than the worst thing i ever did by postcardmystery (1744 words, rated M)

He doesn’t watch Hardison drowning, because he needs to not watch, because he needs not to remember the man that he really is, under cheap clothes and easy smiles and the guns he never uses if he can help it. He needs to be able to lie to himself, just this once, and not look at choking gasps beneath the water. He needs to forget and never to forgive and to lie and force the man that did not make him the man that he’s become believe the lies he’s peddling, because he will die for his sins, but Hardison–

A painful fic about Eliot struggling with the man he was and the man he’s trying to become as he falls desperately in love with Parker and Hardison. This is my favorite fic about Eliot coping with his own feelings of inadequacy in this relationship.

The Symbology of Orange Juice by facetofcathy (832 words, rated T)

Alec nodded solemnly and pointed at him. “He is full of unexpressed feelings that he sublimates into mashed potatoes.”

It’s canon that Eliot expresses his feelings for Parker and Hardison through cooking, which is how we end up with totally charming fics like this one about Parker and Hardison eating food Eliot made and accepting his love.

the warmth of your doorways by gyzym (3205 words, rated T)

She wraps her arms around him – Parker – and presses his face into the crook of her neck, manages to keep still for all of seven seconds before she makes one of her soft little discovery noises and starts playing with his hair. “I’m gonna give you a bunch of little braids,“ she says, sounding pleased with herself, "and then take them all out again. Secret braids,” and Eliot falls asleep to the rise and fall of her breath, the warmth of her body against his, the feeling of those clever little fingers pulling lightly at his hair.

A deeply introspective fic, almost entirely set in Eliot’s head, about him learning to accept Parker and Hardison’s love in all the peculiar shapes it takes. 

your body is a war zone but you are not a ruin by postcardmystery (2158 words, rated E)

“You do,” says Parker, serenely, “But I mean more like, ‘Parker, I want you to sit on my face in ten minutes, okay?’”

“I have never–” says Eliot, and Parker giggles, says, “And I thought Hardison over-thought everything. Krav Maga, oh my God. Hardison! Come in here! Eliot’s gonna stop being dumb!”

“I find that difficult to believe,” says Hardison, leaning on the doorframe, “He try gettin’ you to sit on his face again for ‘self-defence’ or some shit?”

In which Eliot is incredibly subby for Parker and Hardison, because he knows that following them is his only path to becoming a better person, and Parker and Hardison teach him how to ask for what he wants, for once.

Host : “Now, Steve, even you have to admit the photo is pretty damning.”

Steve : “Is it? Because from where I sit, that photo captured an extraordinary moment in my life. A moment that brought me nothing but happiness. I will not let others tear it down for their own purposes.” 

… “This part of the story begins with Darcy Lewis, an amazingly smart, beautiful woman whom I’ve dated for close to three years now. …

Bucky kissed her temple as her cheeks turned bright red.

I have had the privilege of watching two extraordinary people fall in love this year. That kiss in the photograph wasn’t the first, but it was the most honest. I don’t have to choose, because Darcy and Bucky opened their hearts to each other.”

Host “What do you want from us, Steve?”

Now his jaw firmed and he stared straight into the camera. Apologize to Ms. Lewis. She’s owed that. She’s done nothing but love a couple of broken men and helped them out of hell so they can see their way to the sunshine.”

from chapter 60 - Mine ( when the public go crazy with all misogynist things on Darcy when they thought her cheat on Steve with Bucky )

FIC REC : Ice and Fire by  SteeleHoltingOn

i can’t believe i’ve not read this story before, it’s so so AMAZING !!! Especially watching the Civil War trailer then look back at this story, yeah, this is paradies. We have BAMF Darcy + Pepper + Maria here, plus other original female supporting characters. Bucky has his own career , just WOW ! 

My top ten Leverage OT3 fics

I’ve made a whole bunch of Leverage OT3 fic rec posts, covering probably eighty different fics, but I decided to force myself to choose my top ten. These fics are not in order of preference, but rather the order in which I first encountered them.

The kinds of fics I like are ones with really sharp characterization, where you can hear the voices in your head, good banter between the OT3, and exploring each character’s issues without getting too angsty. I don’t like intense pining.

Please reblog with your own top ten Leverage OT3 fics if they’re different from mine!

something good can work (and it can work for you) by queenklu

This fic portrays a heart-meltingly sweet established relationship between Alec and Parker, then a story of how they invite Eliot into that relationship. It’s like they’ve built a home, and all they have to do is open the door.

“It’s all good,” Hardison promises, kissing her forehead and then the tip of her nose because he knows she calls it bunny kissing in her head. “We’ll make sure Eliot knows we still love him.”

It’s a Long Way to Zanzibar by facetofcathy

The one where the OT3 go on a road trip and fall in love along the way. I love the road trip as a metaphor for Alec, Parker, and Eliot going on a voyage to discover one another.

Alec and Parker kept him in the middle, like they were afraid he was going to bolt, like it would be a bad thing if he left. They never stopped touching him, four hands on his body, lips, tongues, and he shut his eyes, and let them carry him, let them hold him aloft, floating on a buzz no whiskey could match. He let them fill him up until he couldn’t imagine what empty was.

Chocolate and Chile and Cloves by Betty

I treasure this fic for its cleverly in-character banter, and for the way it shows Alec and Eliot dealing with a situation where they’ve distressed Parker and need to make it up to her.

Alec was kneeling outside his broom-closet, and speaking into the gap under the door. “Well, can I get you anything? A glass of water, maybe?”

“I’m fine!” Parker said back, muffled through the door, but loud and frustrated. “Go back to your orgasms!”

Adapting to One’s Environment by storiesfortravellers

Settling into any new relationship for the long haul is hard, and even harder when there’s three people involved. This fic is about the ways Alec, Parker, and Eliot drive each other ‘round the bend – and how they learn to stay together anyway.

It was hard, living with people who were so touchy, Hardison told himself. He tried to ignore what he knew about the people he loved; that they survived by keeping the past in the past and the unspoken in the dark, and that Hardison wasn’t really capable of doing either of those things.

The Stolen Moment Job by HugeAlienPie

The story of how the OT3 get married. It’s such a homey, comfortable established relationship, showing just how the three have settled in as a unit.

They will say the things that need saying and slide the rings onto each others’ fingers. They will clean up before making their way home for what Parker will delightedly insist on calling “married people sex.”

Already Here by zvi

A very short piece, but it shows in a tiny vignette just how quietly, desperately in love Eliot is with Parker and Hardison.

He doesn’t even have the daydream of going back home left. Except, “I am home,” he says, mostly to himself.

He thought it was too quiet to be heard, but Parker drops from the ceiling into Eliot’s lap.

The Cyborg Arm Job by copperbadge

This fic is a delightful romp of a crossover with the MCU, but I love it most for how it portrays Parker as mastermind and the OT3 falling into an easy rhythm of being a crack team of three and a stable relationship of three.

“It ain’t a rule, it’s a guideline,” Eliot insisted.

“We don’t mess with Stark,” Parker said, in the voice of one tolerating a loved one’s bizarre personality quirk.

“I don’t wanna get my ass blown off by a robot-suited aggressive billionaire who does not like hackers!” Hardison yelped.

Old Dog by thingswithwings

This fic takes a kink, puppy play, and turns it into a profound metaphor about the nature of Eliot’s relationship to Alec and Parker. Or maybe it turns a profound metaphor into a kink. Either way, it’s both touching and sexy.

Parker makes a noise of agreement, and Eliot’s hand comes down to cover Alec’s where it’s pressed to his belly.

Testing a theory, Alec adds, “You’re our boy.”

Eliot’s hand clenches on his, only for a moment, but it’s enough for Alec to know.

“Yeah,” Eliot says. “I – yeah. That’s what I want.”

Hotel Heart by Laughsalot3412

Think of this psychic AU as one where Eliot right after leaving Damien Moreau meets Alec and Parker at the end of season 3. Eliot is so broken, and Alec and Parker redeem him with the power of their love.

Parker kicked his ankle again, hard enough to make him notice her. “Hey,” she told him. “Dibs.”

Hardison stretched his long legs out under the table and tapped his foot to Eliot’s. “Dibs,” he said.

anything you can give by Thorinsmut

In this fic, Alec and Parker propose to Eliot before the Rundown Job and then go on a honeymoon in Las Vegas. It fits scarily well into canon for the Rundown Job to be the OT3 as newlyweds. Read this and accept your new headcanon.

Eliot tossed his hair back, looking back and forth between them. There it was again, that offer of everything he wanted and hadn’t thought he could have. The pictures were still on the projector, him with the two of them. “Yeah.” It was the only answer he was ever going to be able to give them. His voice came out rougher than he meant, and his eyes were not at all close to watering. Not even a little. “Of course I’ll marry you. Can I get a kiss first?”

32. “I’d ask you to stay but I don’t like you.” AND YOONJINKOOK?? Keemcandy's wild anon has made me settle on an OT3... I'msorry


and anon if you’re looking for more yoonjinkook i’d recommended these!

1 2 3 4 5

they’re all orphaned but it’s the same writer (except the last one). they’re some of my favorites!

It’s times like these where Yoongi wishes his nickname wasn’t Min Yoongi Genius jjang jjang man boong boong, just so he’d have an excuse to shove Jungkook into a corner somewhere without being reprimanded for knowing better.

“Seokjin-hyung, I don’t understand how to find the derivative of this function. Can you help me?”

Yoongi redirects the scathing glare from his textbook to the piece of shit maknae scooting closer to Seokjin on the floor beside the coffee table. Jungkook blinks his stupid long eyelashes, pumping up the aegyo level until it barely brushes the point of cringe-worthy and Seokjin, the overly-trusting angel he is, coos over the cuteness with a loving hair ruffle and pat to the cheek.

Fucking demon spawn.

“I’m not sure I know the answer to this one, Kookie,” Seokjin says with a pout, and Yoongi internally cheers when the brunette shifts back to his original seat. “I haven’t taken calculus in years. Yoongi-ah, you’re better at this than me. Can you help him?”

No,” the two youngest seethe, narrowing their eyes at each other furiously until Seokjin shoots his own sharp glare at Yoongi. “Fine,” he acquiesces, taking a peek at the notebook, “the derivative of 4x3+8 is 2x.”

Across the table Jungkook furrows his eyebrows. “No, it’s 12x2,” the maknae insists before realizing his mistake, and Yoongi tries to reign in his silent cackles. Jungkook blinks his eyes wide, tilting his head a practiced fraction and addresses Seokjin’s raised eyebrow with an innocent curl of his lip. “Um, I mean, what’s a derivative?”

Seokjin purses his lips. “Jungkook, if you don’t need a tutor then I’m going to go –”

“No hyung!” he cries in panic, digging through his backpack for another textbook. “I actually called you here for acting help, see? Something Yoongi-hyung definitely can’t help with, so he could feel free to leave.”

“Oh, well, why didn’t you say so?” Seokjin smiles warmly, getting up to grab some snacks from the kitchen. “I’ll be here for awhile Yoongi, maybe you should go first, I know you have a lot to do.”

Yoongi scowls at the youngest, who twists to make sure Seokjin is out of earshot. “I’d ask you to stay,” Jungkook says nonchalantly, lips twisting up into a smug smirk, “but I don’t like you.”

“What was that?” Yoongi calls loudly in Seokjin’s direction. “I didn’t quite hear you.” Jungkook clamps his mouth shut when Seokjin surveys the pair with suspicious eyes, and Yoongi plasters on his most innocent smile. “Yeah, that’s what I thought, punk.”

“Bring it, shortie-hyung,” Jungkook hisses through his fake grin. He drops it instantly when Seokjin turns back around.

“I think you’re forgetting,” Yoongi sings brightly, “that I’m the one he comes home to everyday.” Yoongi laughs evilly at Jungkook’s aghast expression, turning the knob of the front door and addressing Seokjin a final time before slipping out the entrance. “I’ll see you at home, roomie!”

Jungkookie, put down that vase!”

Obidala Fic Recs

Or, a Relatively Comprehensive List of Obi-Wan/Padme Fanfiction Worth Reading™ [1].

Warning: There aren’t a lot of genuinely happy fics on this list; it’s the nature of the ship, I’m afraid. Unless a fic is a complete AU and/or utterly out of character, chances are high that it will contain a lot of angst, what with the Jedi Code, Anakin, the Clone Wars, and the general deterioration of the Republic and all. :-/ That said, I’ve added content warnings for fics that contain major character death and/or torture, if you want to avoid those.

Remember to check out the different authors’ profile pages, as I generally haven’t included all of their fics on this list.

Fics with asterisks by them are especially recommended.[2]

[1] Disclaimer: YMMV. Also: if I’ve missed any fics that you think belong on here (which I’m sure I have), feel free to add them to your reblog of this!

[2] This is determined largely by my personal tastes. YMMV.

A Rec For Every Raven

Richard Gansey III

  • you’re ripped at every edge but you’re a masterpiece, by @lynchly
  • There seemed to be a silent conversation happening in the front seat. Ronan’s quirked, angry eyebrow shouted at Gansey’s oblivious shoulder. Or maybe Gansey was purposely ignoring him. It was hard to tell which parts of his persona were faux Aglionby and which, if any, went deeper than that.

Ronan Lynch

  • The Gates of Horn, by ariadnes_string
    “You’re aware that Virginia law forbids minors getting tattoos without the express permission of their legal guardian?”
    Ronan paused in the doorway of The Gates of Horn, reputedly the best place on the beach for just that.

Adam Parrish

  • Academic, by Oureias
    Adam drives himself to college, but concedes to take Ronan and Ronan’s car. Ostensibly so that the former can drive the latter back —“What are you gonna do with a car at Harvard?” Ronan had said, “park on top of a fucking building?”— but really because he doesn’t want to make the ride alone.

Blue Sargent

  • Blue, The Reaper, by @kiiouex​ 
    You made the deck yourself. One month ago, Aglionby issued the invitations to Henrietta business owners who wanted a stall at their gala, and the deck has been your weekend project since you accepted on 300 Fox Way’s behalf. It is, without exaggerating, the greatest thing you have ever created.

Noah Czerny

  • we’ll keep tattooes for homes, by @colburns​ 
    “Sorry. Ronan’s terrible with girls,” the other boy said. This one was around Adam’s height, with bleached hair and a snapback. He fiddled with the straps of his backpack and rocked back on his heels. “Well. People. He’s terrible with people. I’m Noah. I like your tattoos.”

disasterpenguin  asked:

I was wondering if you'd post the story you were reading about Draco/Hermione and Harry? Sounds like an interesting ship…

Of course! This is for @lukskywalking as well. Enjoy!

At the Edge of the Crossroads and Leaning (traintracks, 7k): Harry and Hermione are dating, and Harry discovers that Hermione has some fantasies that she’s been keeping from him. Determined to make her happy, he hires Draco to Dom for them, trying to ignore the way the sight of Draco all commanding and confident makes his stomach clench deliciously. 

Running from Lions (tryslora, 17k): When working together on a project cataloguing Dark artifacts for the Ministry, Draco finds himself drawn to both Harry and Hermione. The more time they spend together, the more surprised he is to find how naturally the three of them fit together. Their poly relationship is absolutely lovely! 

Partners Chosen by Chance (tryslora, 3k): The eighth years throw a masked ball, which Draco leaves early. He’s surprised to find Harry and Hermione outside, wrapped up in each other’s arms, and is even more surprised when he’s invited to join. 

Eleven Candles (traintracks, 700): Bathed by candlelight, Draco puts his multitasking and prodigious skills to good use and makes both Harry and Hermione quite happy indeed. 

Too Close to Call (traintracks, 700): Harry and Draco are determined to drive Hermione absolutely senseless. 

In the Middle (sdk, 900): Harry and Draco fuck Hermione together. 

Mission: Accomplished (torino10154, 500): Draco and Hermione fuck Harry together. 

And Never Brought to Mind (mysyc, 1k): Hermione is out to forget, and, luckily for her, Draco and Harry are eager to help. 

Steve : “The three of us together can get through anything.”

Darcy “Together is the key word. If we’re going to do this, I mean really do this, it’s got to be 50/50 all the way. Or, you know, one hundred divided by three, so 33 percent for you, 33 percent for James and 34 percent for me.”

Bucky : “Why do you get more?” 

Darcy  “Please. We both know you two are going to gang up on me. I need every advantage I can get!”

Bucky : “What if you and Steve gang up on me?”

Steve : “Or you and Bucky team up against me?” 

Darcy “Oh, that’s totally allowed,”

anonymous asked:

I looked through all your fic recs, but didn't see much about Dwalin in general, so what are your fave Dwalin fics (any pairing or none) and PLEASE for the love of god do you know of any bottom Dwalin fics? I've read like, the only three i could find.

BLESS YOU ANON DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE DWALIN (i didn’t really intend it but tbh this is almost all smut, hope that’s okay)

nebularity  asked:

i would love the reyfinnpoe recs tbh...

okay it’s not terribly long but i’ll probably add to it over time, i spent the morning reading these fics instead of going on an hour and a half bushwalk, my life choices are at a peak. enjoy!

room of heartbeats by gretahs / Rey is different from Finn; all sharp angles with kinetic energy beneath pale skin, eyes wide enough to take in this sky. A completely different kind of beauty from Finn, but beautiful all the same.Oh no, thinks Poe Dameron, with a sinking realisation. so this was the fic i started off with, which probably set me up for disappointment because this fic is something out of this world. focuses on the emotional impact that the battles had on all of them but esp the torture on poe :( but listen, BB-8 calls them [friend-poe] or [friend-rey] and the ending is too much for my queer little heart to handle

she called it a void by vands88 / someone said “touch-starved Finn” and the next thing I know I’m writing a tragic backstory and sickeningly cute OT3 cuddles. i mean i’m pretty sure i was crying just from reading the summary but finn !!! loves !!! people and especially rey and poe and understands that not all touches are wanted

minimum waste and maximum joy by sabinelagrandeFinn is somewhat underprepared. Poe is only trying to help. okay but… finn grew up as a stormtrooper w/ no fraternisation… rey grew up as a scavenger w/ no people around her… both of them want to kiss the other but neither of them know how 2 kiss. the logical next step is getting lessons from poe DAMNeron

if your beauty is a fortress then my love will be the moat by leupagus“Shut up and hand me that tiara,” she snarls at him, flapping her hand at the dresser where it’s perched jauntily on top of his blast helmet. poe is space royalty. as a result, both finn and rey are potential space royalty. neither of them handle this very well initially

we wore the jacket for the longest time by pearwaldorf / Rey steals Finn’s clothes. So in some way she’s stealing his clothes. a surprisingly happy & fluffy fic for being titled after one of richard siken’s poems. poe is jealous he doesn’t get to be the filling in that hero sandwich, despite what everyone thinks

dry run by theonlytwin / “There just - there weren’t a lot of prospects in the desert!” Rey folds her arms, furious. a ridiculously fluffy fic where neither of them know how to kiss. again. 

wind beneath our wings by shadaras / Finn’s still recovering, Rey and Poe are slowly bonding over being pilots, and BB-8 thinks that humans are very silly sometimes. this fic is beautiful but it hurt me! it’s not finished yet but i hit the subscribe button in 2.0 seconds. particularly fond of the drawn out moments between rey and poe because their dynamic is so good. it also features a blossming friendship between rey and jessika pava, wherein jess teaches her how to swim

water, water everywhere, and nor any drop to drink by scheharazade
Rey has trust issues. Poe has sleeping issues. Finn has too many issues to count and doesn’t want to talk about any of them. this fic is so achingly beautiful and soft, it’s a gentle character study of these three and them working through their issues together

Have you written ot3 sambuckysteve? Links? Recs? XOXO

Hey Nonnie! Here’s a little ot3 rec list for you! Mine’s first!

Find the one(s) who my soul loves- Unclesteeb

A Soulmate ot3 featuring lots of colors and feelings.

“I didn’t know you could bond with more than one person.” Sam said, because there wasn’t any use in hiding his confusion. When Steve stopped feeling so strongly he’d be able to pick Sam’s confusion out easily.

Steve kissed him. His touch returned to that pleasant warm orange feeling. Sam let himself smile about it. “Neither did I, but I’m not about to let my second chance pass me by.

Comedy Jokes- @softsams

This is a Samsteve/Sambucky V but it’s absolutely fantastic and everything. bucky and natasha prank steve by installing grindr on his phone, complete with profile and push notifications. what they don’t expect is for steve to use the app as god and joel simkhai intended, which is to meet a male model, who happens to be named sam wilson. who also happens to be the dude who would not laugh once during bucky’s standup comedy set.

Except Abide it in the Vine by @spitandvinegar (need ao3 account)

This is a multiverse fic with tons of pairings/ characters, but the SamsteveBucky we all know and love are canon and in love and you’re gonna die over Sweepea. Also, Spitandvinegar is one of my most favorite authors. This fic is so, so, so good. 

Chasing Every Breaking Wave by @coffeeinallcaps

 “Hey, by the way,” Bucky says, “what’s the most times you’ve ever made Steve come in a row?” NEED I SAY MORE

There’s My Territory by Dira Sudis

Bucky in panties. Bucky with feelings. Bucky listening to Steve and Sam have sex through the walllllllll.  

Sea-Cold, Sea-Cold it Certainly is- @dirtybinary

“I didn’t know it was like this,” Sam says. “You coming off ice, I mean.”“So don’t wake me up every time Steve stubs his toe,” Bucky says, without any heat. It’s always good to see Sam. He’s not sure if he’s ever said so. “What’s the emergency now?”     

you can hear it in the silence (you can feel it on the way home)by @notcaycepollard

“Are you two drunk?” he asks, and Sam laughs, blushes enough to confirm it. Bucky gasps, just a little, and Steve narrows his eyes a little more. “Are you fucking?” Bucky giggles, something that turns into a breathy sigh halfway through, and god, they are, they’re drunk and fucking and Steve was at work, it’s not fair, they are the worst. ONCE AGAIN NUFF SAID

Heartlines by Mrs_D 

But that swoop that hit Sam’s stomach whenever he thought about Bucky — like he was flying, or maybe falling — it wasn’t going away. It was starting to feel like a click, like there was something here, like maybe Bucky was flying or falling with him (Me: :’) )

For the purpose of cheering people up after that rough episode:

‘Cause You’re on Your Own (In the Real World) by Canistakahari

Scott only invites Derek over the first time because he thinks he’s lonely. It gets a lot more complicated from there, but to be honest, Scott doesn’t really mind.

One of my favorite fics of all time. <3  Loads of warm fuzzies with all three.
