The cliche: Annabeth's private-school friend finds out that Annabeth has a boyfriend. The twist: This mortal already knows Percy Jackson, from long ago.
When Ash and Eiji first got together, Shorter half expected the three of them to drift apart. The opposite seemed to be true: over time they only got touchier and more physical with him. Despite being hopelessly in love with them both, Shorter slowly accepted the strange in-between place his relationship with them had come to occupy and had even begun to appreciate it in its own right. But when Shorter comes over for a movie one fateful night the vibe between them feels distinctly different. Is it just him or are they even touchier than usual? The night that follows promises to change everything between them.

A series of one shots or short fics that show Zuko (not) dealing with his trauma. Featuring Panic Attacks, flashbacks, self-doubt, Ozai being an asshole and the Gaang being (mostly) awesome.
Zuko learns from a young age that touch can be one of the most dangerous things in someone’s life.
He learns mostly from father and his heavy hands, he also learns from Azula and her bony fingers.
He shies away from touch, he knows better than to let himself be so open again.
Uncle does his best, he tries and tries and tries but Zuko still can't let himself be that open again.
Too bad Toph is determined to domesticade their newest firebending addition.
or: Zuko's love language is based on touch and trust, Ozai takes away from him, Iroh intermediates his recovery and Toph gives it back.

Regulus figures some things out about himself; Lily and James figure out what they want.
And then, oh no: James turned to Reg, and grinned wickedly.
“Reg, come on, come sit in my lap. Turnabout on Evans, yeah?” he whispered, and Regulus found himself compulsively swallowing, his eyes too wide, his voice useless. James looked at him more carefully, and whispered even more softly, “please?” and Regulus could not entirely suppress the shiver that cascaded down his spine at that word. He nodded, wordlessly, completely powerless to say no to James, any more than he could have to Lily when she’d asked him the same impossible favor.
James just lifted him, his forearms flexing mesmerizingly, and deposited Regulus in his lap, brushing his fingers through Reg’s hair and down the line of his jaw, and Regulus knew he was too stiff, but Godric and Salazar, he was in James’s lap, and his fingers on his skin felt so nice. He forced himself to breathe, and then just allowed himself to melt into James’s touch, praying he would take it only as going along with the game.
When he finally chanced a glance over at Lily, her eyes were blown wide, and she was frozen, staring.
