Third Wheel by [archiveofourown.org profile] Unpretty
"Who are these anonymous sources?"

"Hell if I know," Lois huffed. "I've lived in Metropolis most of my life, but Kent blows in from Smallville and suddenly he's friends with every hooker and hobo that might have a quote he can use."

"Huh." Bruce looked over the picture at the head of the article again. "Smallville?"

"I know, right? Smallville, Kansas. It's like he emerged fully-formed out of an apple pie. The fucker." She swept powder aggressively over her cheekbones.

The corner of his mouth curled upward. "Getting ready for war?"

"With Kent?" She snapped her compact shut. "Always."
Absolutely hilarious reworking of Batman and Superman's first meeting via Lois's POV, with great, in-character voices for all three of them but especially Clark. I love this Clark. I literally laughed until I cried at certain parts of this story. Highly recommended.

Adam shrugs. "I don't care, she's not mine or anything. You obviously want to."

"She would stab all of us if she even knew we were having this conversation." Gansey eases forward as the light goes green.

"Hey," Ronan says. "She has a knife now and I am not a part of this."

"Too late." Adam smirks. He meets Ronan's eyes in the mirror finally. "You're an accomplice now."

"To rank misogyny," Gansey says, but his lips are quirked in a small, secret smile that Ronan hasn't seen in quite some time.

That is literally the last thing Felicity can imagine happening in this scenario. She's probably going to be dead in six months, or Oliver is going to be dead and Felicity will go back to having lots of time free at night for plunging to the depths of Reddit. Felicity wants to get married to somebody like Oliver—he's basically got "really fucking bad idea" stamped across his forehead, along with "commitment issues" and "could give you that triple orgasm you faked during The Vagina Monologues"—like she wants to stab herself in the eye with a tablet stylus.

Oliver just didn't like to think about Felicity, and about what she signified, because that was a loaded gun he was not yet ready to fire. Not thinking about her was like keeping his index finger set alongside the trigger instead of upon it, like stringing the bow but never nocking the arrow. Lovely, melancholy look at Oliver (not) dealing with the changes in Team Arrow and his relationship with Felicity.

Downtime by [archiveofourown.org profile] NightsMistress
Batman has a contingency plan for when people's houses are destroyed from orbit by invading space fleets. Khaji Da downloads it into his head, a process he now only finds creepy when he thinks about it, and the gist of it is that you go to a particular hotel, the Justice League pay for your rooms for the first few nights, and then they help you find a place to rent until your house is fixed. Nowhere in the plan is what happens if you try to defraud Batman. After a moment, Jaime thinks that is because no one is stupid enough to defraud a man who could appear in your bedroom and watch you sleep, and if they are they deserve what they get. This is an ADORABLY PERFECT look at Jaime, Khaji Da, Milagro and everyone. I draw a million sparkly hearts around this story.

If you have ever wanted dirtybadwronghot Bruce/Steph with D/s undertones (and boy, have I!), then have I got a story for you! This is superhot and since I felt for Steph and wanted to slap Bruce a good part of the time, it's also in character! It was the same the next night, and the night after that, and every night until Tim came home. He had her kneel on a rooftop dressed as Spoiler, in the cave out by the batmobile, in the kitchen when Alfred was out picking up groceries. She did it every time, without question, not sure whether she should hate herself for it, hate Bruce or both of them. Then Tim was back and she thought maybe it would stop but whenever they met there was a moment when he'd look at her just so and suddenly she understood that he didn't have to say a word anymore, and she didn't have to kneel. He'd trained her. She did as he said. She still remembers how that felt.

Then he started moving, and Felicity loved that he didn't treat her like she was delicate. He would touch her like she was special, sure, like he was carefully loving the way she felt, but he never held back as if she might break or fall apart. It made her feel strong, and satisfied, and possessive.

Thin Lines by [archiveofourown.org profile] blithers
His tongue feels thick and heavy in his mouth. He closes his eyes. Thoughts slip away from him like the white flash of silvery fish, flitting here and there, sparks of light in the darkness. Oliver dreams in a rotating kaleidoscope of languages: Russian, Chinese, English, the island, the sand-paper grittiness of mud on his fingers and concrete under his knees, the screams of prisoners echoing in a metal box. He thinks of the way he wants to scratch his way out of his own head sometimes, to peel the persona of Oliver Queen off, this patchwork of half-remembered drunken socialite behavior and the hyper-manners of a civilized age that he wears like an itchy sweater. Really good story that reads like an episode, with slightly more insight into Oliver than we often get on the show.

But so were a lot of other things, like the renovation crews he'd hired and the rents he'd lowered and the plans he had for a halfway house and a shelter and offices for free legal advice. That last had been Tim's idea, but Jason had exactly zero qualms about co-opting it and passing it off as his own.

"You've almost completely divested yourself of your interest in the city's drug trade in order to put money into an enormous project the sole purpose of which is to annoy your brother,” said Bruce.

She's wary of him, but he's pretty sure that underneath she thinks it's funny as hell that she's caught him out like this. She's wearing sleeves and long pants just like he is: they hide the scars.

"This Nick Gage that Jim mentioned the other day," said Father. "Who is he?"

It was a completely superfluous question. Damian was sitting on the sideboard behind Father's chair and had a full and unobstructed view of Father's computer screen: he was already hacking the GCPD files and reading up on Detective Nicholas Gage.

"I understand he and Miss Barbara have – stepped out, as the expression goes," said Pennyworth. "He's on the force. Miss Stephanie has worked with him a time or two."

"Hmmph," said Father, sounding disgruntled. (Not that Father had ever, in Damian's limited experience of him, sounded particularly… gruntled. Was that a word? On second thoughts, Damian suspected not.) "So he's an inferior knockoff."

"Inferior knockoff of what?" said Damian.

"Of Dick," said Father, and shut the computer with a sharp gesture.
