the world of nightwalkers

anonymous asked:

any recs for shorter fics with happy endings? they don't have to be fluff, but resolution would be nice. the chemicals in my brain aren't doing the functioning thing today, so everything kinda sucks and i can't focus long enough to get really invested in anything. if not, that's cool too! i hope you have a wonderful day :)

I am constantly amazed at how authors can tell a wonderful story in just a few words!  I know I don’t rec them that often, but there are some great ones.  Here are a few that I hope cheer you up!

Wanderer by 51stcenturyfox: Written for a sleepwalking prompt on Avengerkink.Tony jerks away like he’s awakened to find himself taunting an alligator with a raw chicken, and almost falls on the floor.“You sleepwalked,” Steve says, stating the obvious,“into my bed.”

Truth by valtyr:   Captain America takes truth serum. Tony is all over that.

Thumb, Index and Pinky Extended by Eudoxia:   Tony Stark is twenty-one when he loses his voice. It shouldn’t matter, but in a world where the first words your Soulmate says to you are marked on your skin, it can be pretty damn annoying.

Indecent Proposal by gyzym and Siria:   On the plus side, marriage is bound to be easier than proposing.

Visible at Last by @awesomeavocadolove:   Based in a world where everyone has a soulmate’s name written on their arm – but not visible to the world until they touch.

The Truth of It Is by nightwalker:   You can’t lie to your soulmate, everyone knows that. Tony’s always thought it was just hype until he tries to sass Steve and the words freeze in his throat.

Leave Your Marks Written Upon My Skin by blue_jack:  “I want you to keep your hands right here, alright?”

Piece of Work by @orbingarrow:  TITLE: How to Make Friends - T. Stark. - Age 6OBSERVATION: People do not want to be friends with a know-it-all
HYPOTHESIS: If I act less smart I will make friends.
PREDICTION: If I let Jimmy Francis thinks he’s smarter than me he will be my friend.
EXPERIMENT: Gave wrong answer in class when Jimmy had his hand raised too and it was an easy question so he got it right.
RESULT: Jimmy Francis sat with me at lunch after I got the answer wrong and he got it right.
CONCLUSION: Hypothesis confirmed. I will make friends if I’m not so smart.ADDITIONAL RESULT: Jimmy Francis ate the cookie Jarvis packed me.
CONCLUSION 2: Jimmy Francis is a dick.—-35+ years have passed and Tony’s still waiting to be proven wrong.

Purple Monkey Dishwasher by @robintcj:   And it’s not that Steve doesn’t want their friends to know. It’s not even that he doesn’t want the world to know. He’s proud of his relationship with Tony. He likes Tony.

Convention Exclusive by @sineala:   “I’m interested in commissioning a sketch,” Iron Man said. He leaned forward, edging into Steve’s personal space, splaying his gauntleted hands on the table. “I’d like you to draw me wearing only a tiny thong, with Captain America staring at my nearly-naked body in horror.”(Or: Steve Rogers, former artist for the Captain America comics, is signing autographs at a comics convention when he meets his biggest fan. Not an AU.)

Home sweet home, or else it would have felt that way if there wasn’t a cult of witches trying bring on the end of the world as far as Marcel knew it. Hearing about the nightwalkers, his nightwalkers going crazy, attacking and turning people, he shakes his head at the very thought of it. Had he been here maybe it wouldn’t have happened or maybe it would have either way he knew he had to take responsibility when it was his to pick up. 

Pushing open the doors to Rousseau’s he lets out a breath at least some things never change. He stalks up to the bar and taps on it, “Maggie, the usual.” He orders over the loud music, getting a nod from the middle aged woman, “A few things about New Orleans you can depend on, the music, the party and the bartenders.”
