The Shining (1980) - Stanley Kubrick.

- Dad?
- Yes?
- Do you like this hotel?
- Yes, I do. I love it. Don’t you?
- I guess so.
- Good. I want you to like it here. I wish we could stay here forever… and ever… and ever.

multiship soulmates au rec list (alphabetical)

An (im)Perfect System: Stiles Stilinski/Derek Hale
“Stiles has always felt pretty lucky about his soul mark. After all how many conversations start with ‘this is private property’? (Apparently, more than you’d think.)”

(un)broken circle: Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers
“‘My ring isn’t this far up because I had another one once.’ Peggy’s thumb shifted down to that empty space, the implication of a Ringmate lost. ‘That’s where Steve’s first ring was.’”

(You Can’t Choose) What Stays And What Fades Away: Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers
“At some point in everyone’s life, the first words their soulmate will ever say to them will appear in deep black writing on their skin. The words fade to light grey when a soulmate dies. Sometimes new words replace them, whether they’re wanted or not. These were the words Steve was born with, running in a messy, uneven line across his skinny little chest, beneath both his collarbones: You okay, pal? Those jerks didn’t hurt ya too bad, did they? Steve woke up from the ice in 2011 with the words, Who the hell is Bucky? circling his heart, in printing so precise it barely looked human. Steve hated them.”

Arrhythmia: Matt Murdock/Foggy Nelson
“Matt’s heart skips a beat when he meets Foggy Nelson.”

Because Girls Love Girls and Boys: Peggy Carter/Angie Martinelli
“In which Peggy Carter has excellent teeth, the name Steven G. Rogers written on her skin, and Angie Martinelli.”

because I love you baby that’s no lie: Darcy Lewis/Natasha Romanov
“People take one look at Darcy, in her patterned scarves and hipster glasses and colourful knits and usually think that she’s the sort of flighty, flaky person who goes dancing in the rain and never meets a deadline and is at least 10% less smart than she actually is. Which is why when she meets Natasha Romanov, who looks Darcy up and down with eyes that actually seem to see her and says, ‘It’s nice to meet you,’ Darcy is absolutely lost.”

Boys with Blue Eyes: Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers
“You know that story about being able to see colors when you meet your soulmate? (It’s a lie.)”

Cover: Bobbi Morse/Jemma Simmons
There’s nothing quite like finding your soulmate while you’re both pretending to be the bad guys.

Devil In The Details: Matt Murdock/Foggy Nelson
“Franklin Philip Nelson is born with a bright smile and the word Devil burned over his heart.”

The Electric Fizzing Prick Pistols, Or Whatever: Sirius Black/Remus Lupin
“Everyone is born with Words on their arm that connect them to their Soulmate. James finds his, Sirius had everything figured out back in First Year, Peter doesn’t talk to girls anyway, and Remus thinks he’d very much just like to put his earmuffs back on and disappear.”

finger tap pulses: Peter Parker/Wade Wilson
“Spideypool AU with timers where Wade keeps getting killed and making Peter’s timer go blank. By the time they meet he’s pretty pissed off.“

Guiding Star: Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers
“Through all the chaos and coincidence of your life, a symbol will reappear: a recurring shape, or idea, or image that turns up again and again, just for you. Only you can figure out what it is; sometimes that’s easy, and sometimes it’s hard.This symbol is called your Clue. And once you know what it is, it will help you know your soulmate–because your soulmate’s Clue will be the same as yours.”

Hanging Tree: Will Graham/Hannibal Lecter
“Will has often wondered sort of person his bond mate must be, to have cast such a sinister mark onto his skin. The larger the mark, the stronger the bond, the stronger the influence of the other partner. He thinks of the marks he’s seen—pastel flowers, shimmering butterflies, tender words of love and connection. He gets a twisted tree right out of Halloween Town.”

I Wear My Heart On My Sleeve And Your Name Upon My Wrist: Castiel/Dean Winchester
“Castiel was created to be a mere foot soldier. Follow the orders of the heavenly host and keep quiet about it, don’t question, don’t think, just do what you’re told.He followed these rules to a dot, doing everything in his power to avoid the discrimination that other angels with marks upon their wrists were submitted too. Castiel was different and he knew it, he would be different than all of his fallen brothers and he would ignore when his soulmate’s soul called for him.”

In Living Color: Harry Hart/Eggsy Unwin
“‘Colour,’ Arthur tells him once, an eyebrow raised warningly over a sniffer of brandy, ‘Is distracting.’ And the Harry who is twenty-one only nods, and takes a sip of the grey brandy in his hand. He intends to be a Kingsman until it kills him. He cannot imagine colours will be a problem he will have to face. And then, years later Harry is forty, and he knows that blood is red and that somewhere in London there is a fifteen year old boy with very blue eyes. Yes, he thinks, burying that thought deep, deep away where it belongs, he finally knows what Arthur meant. Colour is distracting.”
And Companion: Paint With all the Colours of the Wind

An Interesting Trip: Roy Mustang/Edward Elric
“Everyone’s born with their soulmate’s first words to them written on their skin, and that should make things easy, but it really doesn’t. Roy has alternatively despised his mark and clung to it like a lifeline. Colonel. Just one word, right at the back of his foot. His literal Achilles’ heel.”

mine would have taught thine heart to show: Tony Stark/Pepper Potts
“‘Well, this is mortifying,’ Tony says the morning after their latest near-death experience, staring at the targeting system outlined around Pepper’s eye and filled in with a garish near-neon blue.”

Of All Sad Words: Steve Rogers/Peggy Carter
“Most people don’t have Words, Peggy knows. Her mother explains that the sentence on Peggy’s forearm will be the last her soulmate says to her. She’s lucky to have a soulmate. Soulmates are a gift. ‘Poor guy,’ her cousins tease. ‘Has to be stuck with bossy Peggy for a soulmate, isn’t even allowed to finish his last sentence to her.’”

This Is Not Your Skin: Hermann Gotleib/Newton Geiszler
“Five-year-old Newt blinks at his reflection in the mirror, tracing the backwards letters over his heart with the tip of his right index finger. H-E-R-M-A-N-N. A strong German name, his father says with approval. Newt doesn’t fully understand until later what the mark means.”

What He Wants: Ian Gallagher/Mickey Milkovich
“soulmate au where you can’t lie to your soulmate. ‘I want the gun back, Mickey. And I want you.’”
