Brooklyn Nine Nine; Amy Santiago/Rosa Diaz
Santiago and Diaz go undercover as a couple in a gay bar.
Amy and Rosa get to know one another a little better. Amy learns a few things. And Peralta may not be the only coworker she has a little UST with.
This is such a cute undercover relationship story, omg. They're investigating hate crimes at a lesbian bar so heads up for that, but it's not graphic. Also there's cheating but it didn't squick me at all and I have a huge cheating squick. I think I must not have read it as cheating? idk, I choose to believe that Rosa and her bf are poly because that makes me happy.

Sleepy Hollow; Abbie Mills/Ichabod Crane
Rule two: this is a partner thing, nothing more. Don't go getting any ideas.
Another undercover relationship story! This is the cutest thing, and it gets everything I love about their dynamic.
this city bleeds its aching heart by renne (fic)
Marvelverse; Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers
The one where Steve and Bucky pose as a happily married couple while on a mission for SHIELD, to catch an international arms dealer hiding in a suburban neighbourhood.
So, okay, I am at best disinterested in Steve/the whole Captain America thing but I am weak to bffs who are totally in love. And yeah, this is another another undercover relationship story, but it's really really good and kinda has everything I shamlessly love about this trope.
Simple Math by foxxcub (fic)
"So," Eames says slowly, leaning back against the school wall as he idly taps his cigarette. "We've got a problem here."
Kind of an old favourite. It's also a high school AU, so it's full of the kind of ridiculousness I love. And there's so much pining, oh god, so much pining.
So, So Fucked by pennyplainknits (podfic)
Bandom; Pete Wentz/Patrick Stump
Pete accidentally "outs" himself and Patrick on Good Morning America. Only problem? They're not gay. What now?
Another old favourite! Penny's podfic is always lovely, but she brings so much heart to this story. Totally a comfort listen.

Bandom; Brendon Urie/Spencer Smith
I love this fic so much I podficced it. Spencer's nervousness about everything is so cute and of course the Brendon&Spenceriness is perfect.
Lay These Storms to Rest by knight_tracer (podfic)
Hockey RPF; PK Subban/Carey Price
first of all: AUROR AU OMG. knight_tracer's performance is wonderful, and she does a particularly excellent job with Carey's voice.
Need the Light by enchantable (fic)
Pacific Rim; Raleigh Beckett/Mako Mori
He's in the hospital with her blood on his hands and the only thing his mind can focus on is the fact that he has to make sure they don't give her green jello. Mako hates green jello.
so I haven't actually watched this film yet because I'm terrible but I read fic sometimes because it sounds like EVERYTHING I LOVE. And this is so cute I could die!!!! I have a thing for people pretending to be married so they can see their bff in hospital (though it makes me RAGE that that's something you have to do, like, why should that make you family why does that make you more important buuuuut this is not an appropriate place for my anti-marriage rants, sorry) and Raleigh's really, really adorable about it.

Actor RPF; Emilia Clarke/Kit Harrington
“I’m pretty sure this counts as trolling, you know,” Emilia remarks.
I'm pretty sure Jenn could write tropes I actively dislike and I'd love it to bits but as it is this is delightful and funny and delightful and pretty much everything I ever want from fake dating.
Behind This Wall of Metaphors by cherryvanilla and impertinence (fic)
Hockey RPF; Kristen Stewart/Jonathon Toews (Kristen Stewart/Charlize Theron, Jonathon Toews/Patrick Kane)
In which KStew and Tazer meet in a bar, hookup, becoming bros who bone, talk about their gay crushes, and begin fake dating in an attempt to make said gay crushes jealous. Mostly in that order.
First hockey fic I ever read because KStew. Her fake relationship with Jonny is adorable and I am seriously sad that they are not actual bros who fuck irl because this fic TOTALLY sold me on it.
see beneath by daisysusan (fic)
One Direction; Liam/Louis
In which Louis convinces Liam to pretend to be his boyfriend and then everyone's emotions get a bit out of hand.
SO CUTE. That is literally all I can say about this story because it left me flappy-handsing at the two of them.
BONUS: stories I found while I was compiling this list that look awesome but I haven't got round to!
no need for nervousness (it's just a little turbulence) by slumber (fic)
Teen Wolf; Danny Mahealani/Stiles Stilinski
In which Stiles is a conman for hire, Danny is the hacker of his dreams, and Argent Industries is their target.
