Fandom: Agent Carter
Characters: Angie Martinelli (POV), Dottie Underwood
Pairing: Angie/Dottie
Length: 250w
Rating: T
Summary: Normality is a paved road, but wooded paths are still more fun with company. The Griffith Hotel turns out not to be as lonely as Angie thought.
Notes: also for [livejournal.com profile] femslash100 challenge #492: hotel.
title should probably be thought to the tune of either 'Hotel California' or 'New Americana'.

Angie loved living at the Griffith, she really did - really, really. It was great to have a place to stay, especially with such nice housemates as she had.

Sometimes, though, Angie misses living with her family, and not because of Ma’s cooking or Pa’s piano in the evenings - not that she doesn’t miss those things - but because it could be so damn difficult living with girls.

Upright girls, that was, ones with proper-thinking heads on their shoulders; as for Angie, well, a tulip in a rose garden is still a tulip, and a violet ain’t even that.

Sure, she had to put up with talk of rings, and suitcoats, and condoms...could no one dream of high heels, and swimsuits, and lipstick, though? Busty secretaries in boxy suits coming to the diner to lunch? Showgirls in shorts cocking their hips while they have a smoke?

Angie had a torch song for a heartbeat, and even just sitting in the parlor feeling sorry for herself could feel like too much.

“Y’all right, Angie?” comes a soft voice from the lobby, and soon Dottie’s joined her, concern in her brow and her cool hand settling down atop Angie’s with a gentle affection.

“Seem a little dizzy...doll,” Dot presses, smirking and tilting her head towards the paper on the table: showgirls.


Then Dottie’s voice really softens.

“Gotta remind myself those hems ain’t spite, sometimes,” she confesses.

Angie could cry of relief.

“Ya like Schnapps, Iowa?”

Author: [livejournal.com profile] clarahow // clarascarters // charleybradburies (will be posted after challenge)
Fandom: Agent Carter
Characters: Daniel Sousa (POV), Peggy Carter, Jack Thompson, Violet, mentions of others
Pairing: Daniel/Peggy; Daniel/Violet
Length: ~975w
Rating: T+
Summary: Whether or not Daniel knows what he wants from his life is debatable at best.
Notes: Title from "Problem" by Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea. Also, sorry for momentary lateness, was editing the fic, trying to make my internet work, and attempting not to mother my illness-milking roommate.

The last time someone laughs or rolls their eyes at him for indignantly bringing Peggy up in conversation is when he’s offered the promotion. She’d earned it just as well as he had, and she’d been in the agency longer, but of course Daniel was the only one to care about such details.

As soon as he’d agreed to taking the position, though, Daniel had known he’d need to restructure the way he thought about his future - about what he wanted, and what he could get, to fit it into the plan.

So, of course, he’d had to accept that the feelings he’d had for Peggy weren’t mutual; besides, he certainly wasn’t keen on trying to have some sort of relationship with someone on the opposite coast, let alone dim enough to think she’d follow him for the sake of trying to have one. And yeah, maybe he’d gotten far enough to realize that he probably loved her, but Daniel didn’t really have enough to lose to bet his dignity against a chance to see a glimmer of that returned.

But there’s a part of him that still feels like he’s missing something.

Daniel holds back from telling her about the promotion at first; Thompson spills anyway, and she congratulates him, of course, with one of those frustrating, winning smiles, but Daniel catches the way that her entire countenance changes when she breathlessly clarifies, “Los Angeles?”

She’s visibly taken aback, and displeased doesn’t actually seem like too strong a word; she tenses up quickly and recovers with a deep breath but the weight remains against his lungs.

“That’ll be quite the change of scenery.”

It is, and it makes it that little bit easier to change himself, and Daniel tries to goad himself into moving on for real - to starting a life all his own, not one centered around anything he hadn’t earned, or anything that was holding him back.

But oh, it holds him. She holds him, mostly because she never has, and he can’t seem to stop wanting more than he’d got. The same dreams plague him here, often escalating to more even elaborate schemes that let them end up in the same place at the same time, but still about tearing down the barrier of an unbearable desire, albeit one he’s learned to tame for the most part.

He’s just about convinced himself that it was still best to make a clean break of it when she calls for the first time. He’s busy with one of his greenest agents when the call comes in, and all anyone tells him is that it’s from New York, and he shrugs it off, assuming it’s Jack then finding later that he has a terrible sinking ache when he hears it had been Peggy who’d called.

“Not for business, just wanting to see how Los Angeles is treating you so far...I bet it’s lovely to have everyone respecting you like they should...the New York office is rather lonely now, without you.”

I think it’s possible I’ll be lonely anywhere without you. I wish you were here.

I wish you were mine.

He tries, but he never actually picks up the phone to return any of her calls. There were too many things he’d never said, too many things he was no longer sure that he should have kept himself from saying, and he’s also sure that his imagination is just building it all up into more than it really is for her.

But what man could just pick up the phone and call a woman to say “I know I left you and I know I’ve never been clear about my feelings but I miss your smile and the clicking of your high heels and every day I spend without you makes me a little more sure that I’ve been falling in love with you since the moment we met?”

Daniel didn’t know if there was a man who could, but he was damn sure he couldn’t. No, he needed to figure out how to push it away, how to be as neutral as possible about her.

He does a better job once his mother goads him in starting physical therapy at the local hospital - doesn’t do as well as he’d like on either front, but he’s smart enough to know it’ll have to be enough.

For a while, it is. He develops a pattern, gets into habits, pulls Rose from New York, meets his neighbors, even starts going with Violet, the nurse who’s helping him. She’s sweet, and cheerful, and supportive, and a kind of person he really does need in his life.

He still thinks about Peggy more often than not, and mostly at inconvenient times, but eventually his chest stops tightening quite as much and he’s memorized the not-exactly-false account of his reasons for moving across the whole damn country so he can tell anyone who asks how his boss was a jerk who rose to power, but not the challenge, in a time of crisis and didn’t appreciate Daniel’s efforts.

Ironically, he and Jack start getting along a bit better, too. After all, it’s not like they could kill each other over the phone. Well, probably.

But, Daniel reminds himself, time and again about every part of his life that still doesn’t feel right, that’s not the point. The point is that he’s moving on from New York, from the war, from Peggy. He’s moved on.

Or so he thinks.

Because everything he’s become since he got to Los Angeles starts to shatter the moment he lays eyes on her again.

I wish you were here.

I wish you were mine.

Fandom: Daredevil
Characters: Matt Murdock, Karen Page, Foggy Nelson, Marci Stahl
Pairing: Foggy/Karen(/Marci)/Matt
Length: ~690w
Rating: T
Summary: The weekend after the air's been cleared.
Notes: for Matt Murdock Appreciation Week. Day Six: Charlie Cox Appreciation || Writing Prompt: Indulgence.

Matt keeps himself from looking up the moment he hears her enter the room; her breathing’s still slow enough she’s only barely awake, and he doesn’t care to startle her more than she’s already been. He hopes she doesn’t remember either of her nightmares from the previous night - she was weighed down by enough. The heaviness in her step might evince a difference in circumstance, however - or just that she’s still tired. Since she hasn’t even gotten dressed, either is fair game.

Karen leans against the wall after closing the door quietly.

“You cook for every girl that stays over?” she asks softly, and sounds amused.

“Pretty much, yeah. At least the ones that stay the whole night.”

He’s pretty sure she blushes at that; the fact that the front door’s being knocked on at the same time might have something to do with it, too.

“What about the ones that can’t find their own clothes?”

“Were you really that-”

“We were celebrating, Matt!”

“Make sure this omelette doesn’t burn. I’ll help you out in a minute.”

She’s not even wearing socks or slippers, but she scurries over regardless, her hand coming in under his to grab the spatula as he heads to the door. Foggy.

“Hey. You got a minute?”

“Depends. Do you? I have to find Karen’s skirt or something first.”

“Oh, Jesus Christ.”

“I was drunk, Foggy!” she yelps from the kitchen.

“Have you ever met-” Foggy continues to press jokingly, but Matt interrupts.

“I did not sleep with Karen, Foggy.”

“Are you sure?”

“Really, Foggy? Really? This is not the-”

“We were all drunk off our asses last night. You could have slept with me and I’m not sure any of us would know.”

“Oh, you’d know.”

Karen starts to laugh uncontrollably.

“Are you making him breakfast?” asks Foggy, stepping inside. “So, you did sleep with her.”

“He started it!” Karen replies, flipping off the stove.

“Oh my god. How am I ever going to come into work at our-”

“She meant the omelette, Foggy.”

“You’re making each other an omelette?”

“It’s breakfast. What did you expect, cold pizza?”

“That’s what I had for breakfast. Kind of. There was only one piece left.”

“Ew,” says Karen. “Hey, Matt? Where are your plates?”

“Foggy, wait here a sec,” he says, before darting around into the kitchen and grabbing three from a cabinet behind Karen’s head.

“Sure. Not like I have anything better to do,” shrugs Foggy.

“You could go look in my room for something for Karen to wear.”

Foggy sighs, but he shrugs off his bag and sets it gently on the floor, and heads into Matt’s room, opening the door more gingerly than necessary. Karen slides the massive omelette onto the topmost of the plates, momentarily burning one of her fingertips by accident.

“Your skirt was red, right?” comes Foggy’s muffled voice after a few short moments of rummaging.

“Foggy, it’s the only skirt in there,” replies Matt, feigning added frustration; Karen adds a laugh-hampered “yes, Foggy!” and the skirt gets thrown into the living room.

“I intended for that to reach you, sorry,” apologizes Foggy.

“It’s not exactly a softball,” Karen answers acceptingly. “Get back in Matt’s room for two seconds.”

“Two seconds, really? You can change that fast?”

“Oh, just shut up and close the door.”


Foggy seems more impressed by the omelette than he wants to be, but Karen - especially to irk him - spares Matt little compliment. Matt, partly for that and primarily for the pure, familial, feeling of their morning, smiles more than their whole meal through.

It’s just a Saturday, spent hungover in his apartment, working on their current cases and establishing whatever sense of normalcy they’ll eventually have in their firm, but it’s a freer day than any of them have known in a long time. A day without secrets, without alibis or avoidance. A day that seems like it might be coming to a close after their shared Taiwanese take-away dinner, before Marci shows up with cupcakes, a bedazzled briefcase with supplementary files for Nelson and Murdock’s cross-examination, and the announcement that she’s been made partner.

Notes: Spoilers for last night's episode (1.05) of Blindspot.

Tasha’s knock is uncharacteristically light, a product of nervousness she won’t confess to; Mayfair is standing against the desk when she enters, arms crossed. She’d fidget - Mayfair had an aura she couldn’t blow off, which was her normal strategy for dealing with authority - but she knows this conversation will only last a minute.

“Close the door.”

“Yes, ma’am.”

“Carter gave us quite a hard time.”

“Yes, ma’am, he did.”

“A run for our money, if you will.”

Tasha straightens her back. Mayfair says nothing.

“He gave you an offer, did he not?”

“Do you want me to take his offer?”

“I want him to think you’re taking his offer, and let’s get one thing clear: if I find out you go all the way for him, you’re through.”

Mayfair goes back to the seat behind her desk.

“Do what you need to do, Zapata, but find out what the hell he wants with our Jane Doe.”

“Yes, ma’am.”

“Very well, Agent Zapata. We’ll speak later. You’re dismissed.”

Tasha nods respectfully and takes her leave, but can’t keep her first thought after closing the door from being about her debt.

B) Also inspired by that Tumblr text post where someone's like "I want a superhero movie where like a quarter of the way through the hero dies or gets arrested or something and then his girlfriend takes over and is totally amazing at vigilante heroics and gives everyone a run for their money"
C) There was supposed to be an exchange where she talks to someone and they're like 'that's badass that you're totally cheating the system by taking over for Matt' but I've not managed to make the writing of that happen, so...yeah.
