The Middleman

The Roommate Transposition Irritation by [archiveofourown.org profile] DesertScribe
Fortunately, Sensei Ping was able to sympathize with her about crappy landlords, because even celibate martial artist monks couldn't go around introducing disrespectful lessors to Pain's River without being chastised by their peers for giving their venerable order a bad reputation. Of course, Sensei Ping's version of sympathy came in the form of stepping up the intensity of the practice exercises and extending the session by several hours when world ending dangers continued to not interrupt them. Wendy figured it was a great alternative to going home and punching Pip in the face, because even though she now knew a chokehold that would induce two day amnesia (with much greater reliability than what those luchadores did to Tyler) so Pip would never remember who hit him, she did still have a conscience. The whole 'with great power comes great responsibility' thing meant that she couldn't go around beating up guys just for making her mad anymore, even though she only had awesome hand to hand combat skills instead of actual super powers. Something's weird in Wendy and Lacey's illegal sublet! Wendy's on the case though. This is so perfectly Middleman, I can't even. <333

Lord Legerwood, unknotting with the ease of long practice the tangled skein of his wife's speech, said, "Do I take it you want me to discuss the niceties of love-making with Freddy?"

"Yes," replied his other half baldly.

He could think of a dozen things he would rather do than hold such a conversation with his son, among them walking barefoot over hot coals or strolling down Bond Street without trousers. But he knew that Emma, scatterbrained as she could be, was right. Discreet inquiries over the years since Freddy's majority had yielded no evidence that he ever kept a mistress or even visited one of those establishments that catered to a gentleman's needs. Freddy was undoubtedly as virginal as his bride-to-be, and perhaps a few pointers wouldn't go amiss to help get the newlyweds off to a good start.

"Very well, Emma," he said, resigned to his fate. "I will have a talk with Freddy."
And hilarity ensues. This gets the voices just right. So adorable!

She shoved a handful of bills at Ida. "Chocolate," she hissed again.

"There isn't supposed to be life in the fridge, Mullins," Sarah said. "The whole point of a fridge to prevent life from growing in your--" Shannon was just looking at her with raised eyebrows. Sarah stopped, closed her eyes, took a deep breath, and counted to three.

And I'm not the only one — Ed Chigliak and Maurice Minnefield both report that Dr. Joel greeted them in their dreams last night too. Looks like we might be doing some shared dreaming, Cicely! Feel free to call in and let us know if you met up with our former doctor in your sweet dreams.

"Spend some time on the big old internet, and you'll find out all you ever wanted to know about meeting in dreamspace and astral projection, all kinds of stories from all kinds of people, all about the journeys their minds take while their bodies have checked out. True stories? Well, there's nothing quantified, nothing qualified, nothing proven, but here in Cicely, many of us have had our share of strange dreams, counting yours truly.

"So, maybe we all had a visit from Dr. Joel last night. Are we all getting sick? Is our collective subconscious trying to tell us it's time to see a doc? Or were we all trying to tell Dr. Fleischman something, through the combined power of our dreams? It could be any and all of those things. This is KBHR, and you're listening to Chris-in-the-morning, Cicely. Let's get dreamy."

A Christmas Card From The Middleman – 2012 by [livejournal.com profile] themiddleblog
In the past twelve months, Wendy Watson had honed the cool and sardonic demeanor that first got her this job into a weapon as powerful as a 30-Megahurt Definit-Kil Photrazon cannon. Even now, as she made an uncontrolled ascent over the city, hands white-knuckling one of the control line of a massive helium balloon in the shape of one of the adorable characters from "Ferrets of Fury" - the almost criminally popular game app that had taken the country's tablet and smartphone users by storm - her thoughts ricocheted with their usual post-modern tangentiality...but even as her mind ameliorated all the synaptic red alerts over her current predicament by busily trying to replace the lyric "high adventure beyond compare" from the theme to the old "Gummi Bears" cartoon show with the more descriptive "they're gelatinous with sucrose to spare" she truly could not tune out the screams of the fourteen year-old boy clutched beside her in the inflatable paws of this once adorable video game creation turned hateful harbinger of helium-filled hatred. Technically, this is not fanfic, since it was written by the show's creator, but *hands* it is too awesome not to rec.

"We're not in a relationship, remember?" In her boots, Kalinda is a good three inches taller than a barefoot Joan, who straightens up as Kalinda reaches for her. "I've been caught up at work. You know how it goes."

Joan stands on her tiptoes, balancing on Kalinda's arm, so they're almost eye-to-eye. "I could've sworn there were phones in Chicago the last time I visited."

"Yeah, well... Surprise?" says Kalinda, with a tiny forgive-me? smile. And Joan is lost, between that smile, those boots and this kiss.

Time Watches From the Shadow by [personal profile] shadesofbrixton
Steve has the common sense - or good grace - to look a little bashful now, like that'll do a gorram thing for Mal's opinion of him. "I'm looking for someone - I was told you were the man to come to. That this ship did things other people wouldn't."

"She maybe does," Mal monotones, tipping his head at Inara, who rolls her eyes.

Steve sighs, obviously fed up with his treatment of the "lady." Well, good. He deserves as much frustration as Mal's feeling. "A - a friend of mine is trapped in a facility." He's searching Mal's face, those baby blues suddenly real sharp. "I heard your crew had experience - "

Mal's gun is out and tipped up under Steve's chin before he can finish the sentence. "Heard from who."

To the stranger's credit, he doesn't stammer under the press of steel. "Shepherd Book," he says calmly.
Eeee! Steve and Bucky 500 years in the future! Bucky trapped by the same people who had River and Steve asks Mal's help to get him back! Mal being frustrated that everything is out of his control. I love this so much!

"It's not a date," Clint said carefully, as if he'd been coached.

"Uh-huh."

"It's a morale-boosting experience," he added, making Darcy pause where she was scooping her bag off the floor to stare at him. There was the beginning of a shit-eating grin flirting around the corners of his mouth.

"That makes it sound like you're being whored out to me," she said finally.

"All undercover SHIELD operatives receive extensive rentboy training."

"Are you expected to spend a lot of time lying back and thinking of America?"

"That's more Steve's style."

"Yeah, all right, I'm not touching that one," Darcy said, shouldering her bag. She took another look at Clint and decided she probably wouldn't mind if he were being whored out to her, hypothetically: after a college career dating three economics majors, an engineer, and a future master of public policy, his biceps looked pretty good. So did his ass. But that wasn't the point.

Oh, Joshua... I love this look at him just meeting everyone, and how he fits in without trying, but even he's bewildered by the family at first. I love that it's Sandy who introduces him to the family, but that he's also training with Charles Wallace, even if he doesn't know it. ♥♥♥

Middleman

The Job Description Actuality by The Blue Raven
Wendy comes home in bad shape, and Lacey decides she and the Middleman need to talk. Lovely.

Just Words and a Tune by [livejournal.com profile] hematitebadger
Ten wonderful little slices of life with the Middleman and Wendy.

Make a Feast Out of Trouble by [livejournal.com profile] voleuse
The problem with living in a building filled with other young, photogenic artists was, Wendy knew, that idealistic rebel very easily devolved into pretentious jerkwad. Lovely slice of Wendy/Lacey. Sigh.

Cheeseburger First by [livejournal.com profile] amonitrate
Heartbreakingly poignant story of Tony's first day back from Afghanistan, from Happy's POV.

Did you write the book of love? by [livejournal.com profile] ignipes
"Nate told me to talk to you," she says. / Eliot perks up immediately. "We got a job?" / "No," says Parker. "He told me to ask you about the birds and the bees." Adorkable, hilarious Parker/Hardison.

The Middleman

but the rest of us do what we must in constant compromise by [livejournal.com profile] corellianjedi
In the aftermath of "The Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse," Wendy helps the Middleman deal. *sniffle* Achy and lovely and full of their awesome friendship. (spoilery for the unfilmed 13th episode/graphic novel/table read at SDCC)

Apocalypse Now and Then by [livejournal.com profile] monimala
"Ida has picked up several interesting tidbits on the H.E.Y.D.A.R.," he informs. "Apparently the sky commenced falling at roughly 0600 hours, shortly after reports that temperature in a small southeastern Michigan town called Hell had reached critically cold proportions, especially unusual seeing as it's July." / "Wait." She stops with her vest stuck halfway around her head, voice muffled by the slippery black cloth. "Are you saying that Hell literally froze over?" / "Yes, Dubbie, I am." Hee! WW and MM take on the apocalypse.

the global zed head apocalypse by [livejournal.com profile] corellianjedi
Fantastic fusion with World War Z. What do Wendy and the Middleman do during the zombie apocalypse? Heartbreaking and hopeful in equal measures.

The Red Velvet Sensei Spectacle by [livejournal.com profile] nonky
Lacey feeds Sensei Ping some (vegan) red velvet cake. Hilarity ensues.

This Is Where It Starts by [livejournal.com profile] marymac
Wonderful look at how Wendy and Lacey met and became BFF. I especially like the asides about Wendy's mom, and the way Noser's appearances are threaded through the whole thing.

War Stories by [livejournal.com profile] hematitebadger
Roxy helps Wendy do some research, and they find some time to chat. I really enjoyed this, and she has Roxy's voice spot on.

five things Booth thinks about when he's driving home at night by [livejournal.com profile] fahye
Even the crappiest days come to an end. So now he's on his way home listening to the engine sing steak steak steak with occasional interjections from the indicator which sound like beer beer beer because there's a bottle waiting for him at home, too, a bottle of ice-cold beer that's going to hit the back of his throat before it has time to warm up even the tiniest bit. Awesome look at Booth, and through him, Brennan.

Iron Man

Firefighter by [livejournal.com profile] awanderingbard
"You must be Pepper Potts. You are very tall. I like your shoes. You could probably kill someone with those heels. Come in." / He turned and walked away. She followed after him, her shoes echoing loudly in the cavernous space. / "Virginia," she said, hurrying to catch up. "Virginia Potts." / He stopped, suddenly and she nearly ran into him. "Are you sure? 'Cause I thought Obi said 'Pepper'. I like Pepper. Pepper is cute, it's fun. It sounds like a 1930's detective's girlfriend. Pepper is the reason you got this interview." / "Pepper is a nickname," she explained. "You can call me Pepper, if you want, sir." / "Don't be ridiculous," he said. "That would be completely unprofessional. I'll call you Miss Potts." Pepper's job interview. Adorable.

Middleman

The Juice Box (Truth Bomb) Debacle by [livejournal.com profile] cereal
"You are far, far from an open book, ace. I'm just saying, it doesn't worry you that I could ask, oh, say, about girls? You wouldn't flinch?" / "If these girls were a part of the San Dimas Junior High Student Council Spirit Death Squad, I may very well flinch a little. They are tougher than they look." A truth bomb goes off in the locker room, while Wendy and the Middleman are stuck inside. Adorable.

Middleman

The Bellicose Doppelganger Auter-ization by [livejournal.com profile] jengrrrl
Absolutely hilarious story in which Lacey is kidnapped and Wendy and the Middleman have to save her. Clever and quippy, just like the show.

It's All About the Cream Filling by [livejournal.com profile] monimala
"What's it like when you 'long'?" Somehow, she pictures elevator music and cartoon hearts flying through the air, but she's not about to tell him that. Incredibly sweet and yet not sappy Wendy/Middleman fic.

The Modern Courtship Conundrum by [livejournal.com profile] sloanesomething
Ida frowns. "Don't think I was activated yesterday, missy. I see what's happening here. You just keep in mind that you and the Middleman are professional partners – he's Batman and you're Robin, and that's the end of THAT story." // "You've clearly never read a Batman comic," Wendy mutters. Utterly adorable Wendy/Middleman fic.

The Ursine Therianthrope Divination by [livejournal.com profile] kaneko
After leaving the Navy, he went back to civilian life and became the kind of man he'd always admired. There was nothing complicated about it. He didn't cuss. He called women 'ma'am' and men 'sir'. Every time he bought milk instead of beer, it was a choice - but it was a simple choice. // And when he was recruited to the Middle organization, the role fitted over his new self like a glove. This story is sheer elegance in its simplicity! I mean, it's absolutely fantastic, with great MM-WW interaction, and a wonderful backstory for this Middleman. Wonderful. Highly recommended.

we're the umbrella (in a rain of fire) by [livejournal.com profile] _seven_crows
"So, let me get this straight: an evil government supercomputer derived partly from scraps of technology gathered from failed supervillain plots and partly from salvaged alien technology far beyond our puny human comprehension has gone crazy, created itself a body, developed a random and inexplicable fixation with the samurai bushido code, and vowed to destroy this honorless world and all its insignificant inhabitants. Does that sound about right?" // "Not only does it sound right, Dubbie, but it sounds like some of the best synopsizing I've ever heard," says the Middleman. "Frankly, I'm impressed." Five times Wendy and the Middleman saved the world. Sounds just like the show. Adorable.
