The Yiling Laozu shrugs again. “Do you want anything else augmented while you’re here? I saw that your pleasure module isn’t integrated.”

Lan Wangji blinks again. He can find no mention of a pleasure module in any of his architecture. “What’s that?”

This just took my breath away – android!LWJ learns how to feel in the most intimate, incredible way imaginable.

come to me in dreams (that i may live), by paintoolsigh – Nước Chảy Hoa Trôi (Short Film) [Archive of Our Own]

Vu Linh holds his cheek in his hand, elbow propped on his knee, and turns to face Vuong Ma. If he had to guess, Vu Linh wouldn’t assume Vuong Ma to be much older than Hac Thien, or even himself. He is young, with smooth and refined features where Hac Thien’s are sharp and angular, and even in the grey of the night, his eyes trap the light in molten amber. Deceptively unobtrusive.

I adore this short film, but I’m definitely not a fan of Hac Thien and I can’t help but want Denis’ and NTTQ’s characters together, so this just made me incredibly happy. 🙂

Act as a Clever Medicine, by Zee (orphan_account) – Fall Out Boy [Archive of Our Own] | https://archiveofourown.org/

Pete’s arm slides over his shoulder to hug his back, protectively. “You’ve been attacked by a crazy fan. That makes you officially a rock star, Patrick Stump.”

“As you can see, it’s very glamorous,” Joe pipes up from his other side. They appear to be flanking him and herding him back to the van, which Patrick is okay with, because he can’t see all that well. Pete’s arm tightens, and Patrick is suddenly very aware that if he turned his head slightly, his lips would brush Pete’s ear, or neck.

Sometimes you just have to go back and re-read a classic sex pollen fic with your old OTP… 😉

Hourse of Freedom by Vanasati

“And you haven’t remembered anything since then? About yourself? Or about others, like me?”
He shakes his head and spreads his hands in an apologetic gesture.
Two days for him, one for me. For a moment the panicky feeling is back. What if we never find out who we are? What if…
“I am glad that you are here.”
The quiet admission shakes me out of my misery, and spontaneously I put my hand on his arm.
“Me too. I don’t like to be alone.”

Kirk and Spock wake up on a planet with no memory of who they are. Luckily they have each other… Absolutely wonderful amnesia fic.

He moves then, not Bones nor any ghost of my imagining, but him, real and alive and moving toward me in the dark.

I’m holding my breath, not realizing I’m doing it until I hear him, a rustle of heavy fabric so faint I wouldn’t hear it otherwise. I can feel him close to me. I want so badly to reach out that it hurts, a physical ache somewhere inside of me, but I can’t, I can’t. Because if I do and there’s nothing…

He touches me, the brush of fingertips on my bare arm.

A sound–me. Was that me?

Kirk on Vulcan, waiting for Spock’s recovery and agonising over things that happened in the dark, that he was too afraid to let into the light. This is exquisitely painful and exquisitely beautiful.

Change is for the Brave, by Chiyume – Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own] | https://archiveofourown.org/

“Yeah,” Steve agrees under his breath. He’s embarrassed, Bucky can tell. “I just— I mean, technically, I could just go ahead and kiss the next person who happens to ask and get it over with, but…it’s not what I want. Not really.”

“Too bad,” Bucky says, “and here I was, trying to gather enough courage to offer myself up.”

“What?”

Bucky freezes. He had meant the comment as a joke, at least mostly, and he had been convinced that Steve would interpret it as such, like he always does. Instead, when Bucky looks up to meet with Steve’s gaze, Steve is staring at him with eyes wide in shock, and Bucky feels his throat run dry.

Practice kissing turning into so much more… A delicious take on a delicious trope!

“I don’t want to really date anyone. It’s so stupid, I just need to pretend date someone until Jiang Cheng gets his act together, then go back to my own life.” He stares at his empty coffee cup.

“Date me,” Lan Zhan says. Then he looks at Wei Ying’s empty cup. “Would you like another cup of coffee?”

“Always,” Wei Ying says automatically. “But wait, what.”

I will never get tired of fake dating and oblivious!Wei Ying, and this is a glorious example of the genre – funny and hot at once!

Before he’s even finished reading, Xiao Zhan knows this is the script, the one that could alter the course of his career. Not like Chen Qing Ling changed his life six years ago, catapulting him from a minor idol to a household name, or the way his more serious roles have slowly taken him to the upper echelons of dramatic actors. This is a love story, daring and bold, groundbreaking and unforgettable, if only he’s brave enough to do it.

So of course, eventually, they bring up the idea of casting Yibo as his lover.
