She said, I’m going to miss you when I wake up.

Don’t wake up, he answered.

But he did.

Kestrel, beside him on the grass, said, “Did I wake you? I didn’t mean to.”

It took him a velvety moment to understand that this was real. The air was quiet. An insect beat its clear wings. She brushed hair from his brow. Now he was very awake.

An emotion clamped down on her heart. It squeezed her into a terrible silence. But he said nothing after that, only her name, as if her name were not a name but a question. Or perhaps that it wasn’t how he had said it, and she was wrong, and she’d heard a question simply because the sound of him speaking her name made her wish that she were his answer.

Kestrel turned to her. "What do you mean?”

“You don’t come to auctions often, do you? The Winner’s Curse is when you come out on top of the bid, but only by paying a steep price.”

The Sass is Real (Clint Barton x reader)

curiosity-killed-the-chat said:  Clint soul-mate fic? One of the ones where the first words are written somewhere on you and Clint’s are some weird sassy ones?

I took this one slightly differently, not using the first words, but still the idea.

Clint had been desperate to find his soul mate for years.  The words that they were supposed to say, the words that were written on him to identify them as his soul mate, were so colorful and sarcastic, that he just had to find this person out of curiosity as much as anything else.  He thought he came close a few times, but those relationships didn’t last and obviously weren’t the one.  When you joined the Avengers, he fell hard and fast in love with you, and when he knew that you would likely never speak the words he was waiting for, he decided to stop searching.  He was beyond happy with you, and believed that this whole soul mate thing wasn’t as important as he once thought.

books read in 2016: the winner’s kiss by marie rutkoski

“Did you pray to your”—she rummaged through her memory—“god of souls?” She was ready to believe in a supernatural reason. It would explain his power over her.

He coughed, then gave a short, rasping laugh. “That god doesn’t listen to me.” He set the tumbler next to the carafe on the table. He paused, thinking. In a new, slow tone, he said, “Except perhaps now.”
