Every one I've read with a reluctant partner always ends with them growing to realise that the dom/soulmate/alpha/whoever is right for them. I just want one that's like NOPE. SOOPER SIRIUSLY NO. NOOOPE and stays that way.
I'm oddly attracted to bonding AUs, regardless of the specific trope that it's built on- born with a name birthmark, or ABO, or imprinting (or various less common variants). And some of them get together instantly, and that's great. But then you get the ones where the one partner is reluctant. And they ALWAYS end up as a couple in the end. Always. I don't mind that generally, but I would looove to read one where the reluctance stays.
Like the one I'm reading right now, Tony's got Clint pinned (they're wrestling), and Clint realises that Tony is sniffing at him. And even though Clint's been reluctant up until now, at this point he's not really pushing him away. Meanwhile I'm like JAB YOUR THUMB IN HIS EYE. HE WON'T WANT TO MATE YOU WHEN HE'S BORROWING EYE PATCHES FROM FURY.
