  • Anonymousany ficrecs of Alex/Darwin?
  • lecapunk

    BOY HOWDY HAVE YOU COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE, FRIEND.

    these are what i consider the highlights of the Armando Muñoz/Alex Summers tag on AO3.  i haven’t dug my way through the kink meme yet, but this should hold you over for a while, so have at it.  Remember to read the fic tags so that you can avoid any triggers you need to, and have fun!

    • born into trouble as the sparks fly upward — this is a post-vietnam fic where alex is dealing with ptsd and the after effects of that war, and armando may or may not be alive again.  please heed all the trigger warnings.
    • Come Back to Me — armando wakes up in the rubble of the cia compound, and there are feelings.  essentially the obvious prelude to the usual reunion fic.
    • With Luck (Turn It Down Remix) — the boys have sex.  a lot.  there is an accidental glimpse into erik and charles’s sex life.
    • Snail Mail — probably the most well know a/a fic, but still a great one.  alex works for erik, who is married to charles.  armando is charles’s t.a.  meet cute for the boys because charles and erik thrive on arguing with each other.
    • Molten middle — an armando comes back fic.  really sweet, with some nice alex&hank interaction on the side.
    • tell them i ain’t coming back — the firefly au.  really good, and you can definitely interpret armando as being somewhere on the aro and/or ace spectrums with this fic, which was really nice.

  • AnonymousI know u are on a bit of a, uhm, spiral atm but I noticd your otp: HE ASKED ME TO COVER HIM tag and 1. SAME U GH 2. u wouldn't happen to have any recs would u?
  • bisexualsteve

    oh my god alex/darwin does NOT get enough love and i am certainly always here to rec anything to do with them!! here’s just a few that i’ve read and loved:

    • depend on something that’s newDarwin returns but with no memory of who they are or how he died.
    • touch Alex’s face always crumples a little when Armando does this, like he’s folding in on himself from sensation, trying to hold everything in; he looks almost offended by how good it feels, furrow in his brow and white teeth sinking into his lower lip, and Armando can’t stop himself from tracing that tight, red curve of mouth with his free hand.
    • sky turns to flame - Is this a date?
    • second chance at a first try That moment when Armando presses him against the wall, one hand on the brick behind him, leaning in with a smile that’s just shaky enough to tell Alex something neither of them dare to try saying.
    • snail mail Alex isn’t thrilled when his boss, Erik, starts sending him to hand deliver notes to Erik’s husband up at the university—that is, until he sees the Professor’s hot new TA, and suddenly, the notes can’t come fast enough. If only Alex could work up the guts to ask him out….
    • work/life balance Alex is pretty sure his weird, anti-social boss is a robot. Right up until the guy’s adorable husband shows up. His adorable husband who happens to be a famous actor. His adorable husband who happens to be the very same famous actor who was the source of many of Alex’s teenage fantasies. (the focus in this one is not on alex/darwin, but it’s definitely there and really cute oh god)

    if i can think of any more, i’ll add to this list - these are just off the top of my head!! please heed any warnings within the fics’ tags, and enjoy!!

lecapunk:

also i’m freaking out just a little because the last thing armando does — he doesn’t just look at alex, he reaches for him, and then gives this tiny little sad half-smile and that’s the part where i burst into tears because we never see alex’s reaction.

  • AnonymousWhat are the 2 OTPs that hardly anyone ships?
  • lecapunk

    first, we have my forever boys, alan j. corbett and ed zeddmore.  the ship tracked tag is #edbett and i built it from scraps in the fall of 2012.  it’s the ship that brought me together with my girlfriend, and i once wrote a so-far-unpublished 30k longfic about it.    

    nobody ships it because corbett was a one-off canonically-queer character in the season three supernatural episode ”ghostfacers!” and ed is one of those mentioned ghosfacers.  people see the ship, get mildly upset about corbett’s death, and then they move on because apparently that’s enough for them

    (and of course it doesn’t stop them from taking the ‘gay love can pierce the veil of death and save the day’ gif and using it for everything from destiel to johnlock to stucky, and man, i’d say a solid amount of stuff in my ‘supernatural for ts’ tag is me getting pissed about that)

    but yeah, i ship it real bad because i identified with ed for a long time, and i still do in some ways.  i see a lot of my flaws in him, and i liked the idea that even despite those flaws, somebody loved him.  i also ship it because corbett is frigging adorable and deserved so much better than he got.  

    i don’t post about it much anymore but i love it fiercely, and it’s my ultimate otp.

    secondly, and more recently, i fell in love with alex/armando.  these bastards i’ve posted about a lot in recent days, so you were probably expecting this part of the answer.

    but nobody ships it, at least, very few people with the time/energy/willingness to put out fanworks for it.  there’s me, and kales citadelofswords, and i know training-jasmine-how-to-vine is working on something.  this is despite the 100+ note post i made on why people should ship the thing.

    but nope.  nope.  because apparently six minutes of screentime for a ship is totally enough when it’s these two. 

    but i ship it like burning because holy shit, man, they’ve got something to them, something i’ve only seen once before and all i can call it is this:

    they’re t’hy’la.  i’m probably going to make a post later unpacking what i mean by this, but the short version is that they give me the same set of feelings that kirk/spock does, and there is not a single ship in the universe that does that, except kirk/spock and this one.

    i can’t not ship it.

lecapunk:

ships that nobody ships but that i absolutely fucking love to death and am presently very sad about the lack of fanwork for:

• ed zeddmore/alan j. corbett (check #edbett in the tracked tags to find most of the fanwork for it)
• ALEX “HAVOK” SUMMERS/ARMANDO “DARWIN” MUÑOZ (which does not appear to have a set ship name so i CAN’T FIND THE FANWORK FOR IT)

I completely pine for Armando and Alex. After all this time, I still want a Marvel Comic movie where Armando and Alex are given enough time to find each other again. I mean, it’s just not fair. Armando wasn’t supposed to die. He’s a 1st level mutant.

jehanthepoet:

If I know you (I know what you’ll do) Part One

Summary: so awhile ago murf mentioned an alex x armando reincarnation au because armando is virtually immortal. And this is my attempt to write that

Pairings: Alex Summers x Armando Muñoz

Alex dreams of fire, and wakes up screaming. Actually, this is not strictly accurate. Alex dreams of red rings of energy that, tear out of his chest. He dreams of a man who touches him like he isn’t afraid -and Alex doesn’t know why this is so surprising to him. Why should he be afraid? Alex dreams that he is the reason this man is dead.

And Alex wakes up screaming.
