    Summary

    Everyone assumes what they see of Captain America, is all there is of Steve Rogers. A man from the past who is transparent and incapable of telling a lie. But there has always been more to Steve than met the eye.

    It was not that Steve could not lie, because he actually could if he truly needed it to protect those he cared about, or get himself a semblance of a private life. The 'thing' was, he did not like to tell untruths. Lying rubbed him the wrong way, and it always had, so as a rule he avoided lying. It was always much easier to let people assume what they will, not talk about his personal life, be evasive, or 'innocently' draw attention to something else.

    Unfortunately SHIELD has been compromised from its very beginning, and some people inside have wanted Captain America out of the agency, without making him a martyr.

    Summary

    “Buck we can’t let her go.” Steve said, more tears streaming down his face. The baby in his arms squirmed and looked up at him in confusion. His lower lip trembled as he reached up and placed a tiny fist against the side of his tired face, almost as if she were trying to make him stop crying. More tears began to stream down his face and Buck watched him break as she curled up against his neck, wrapping her tiny arms around it like it was the only thing keeping her upright.

    “We won’t, we won’t. I promise.”

    Summary

    Eponine is a political pollster. Gathering the opinions and views of the Great British public is not without it's difficulties but it's a damn sight easier than working out your own feelings or those of the people around you.

    Grantaire's a mildy successful artist. But years of working with glass have highlighted just how fragile the world and life really is. People are like glass, transparent, opaque, sometimes stained, all capable of being broken.

    Or, how Eponine and Grantaire's lives get inextricably intertwined with those of Les Amis.

    Also, a very patchy introduction to the world of British politics.

    Summary

    They're 25 and just starting to make their headway out into the world. The roughest edges of themselves have been smoothed away from the early years of turmoil and stumbling youth; they're happy in their small apartment with its peeling paint and drafty windows. They don't need much more than money for train fare and tuition and food and the warmth of the other by their side.

    They’re 25 when the call comes and they leave for Miyagi from their Tokyo apartment, and Tadashi realizes that maybe, there was so much more to work for, to want.

    Summary

    It's an alternate universe where some things went a bit differently and some went a good deal differently. It doesn't mean nobody dies. It doesn't mean it doesn't hurt (it actually often hurts a lot more). But it means he's not alone.
    Frank Castle's found a new family, as weird as it is, and friends; and a new duty.
    The Avengers may be a team of superheroes; but they're also a bunch of dorks.

    A series of short pieces, based on a 100 words list. Theoretically drabbles, in practice rarely but usually still maintaining a word count of some sort.

    Summary

    Mythal, avert your eyes. The Dread Wolf spends more time a’fussing at his women than he does in planning righteous war.

    Oh, but righteous thoughts were there, and they held equal measure with the rest. While Una battled tooth and nail to see her people safely home and City Elves set free from fateful poverty, The Dread Wolf’s piercing eyes were facing north.
    ----

    From that day on, Compassion never feared himself again. It was one thing to have Fen’Harel insist that Cole was now impervious to spiritual corruption. It was another thing entirely to live the nightmare and emerge a man intact; two arms, two legs, and smiling.

    Summary

    “Am I cursed?” Loki questioned him after a moment, her eyes remaining fixed in front of her even if she could see from the corner of her gaze that blue was beginning to overtake her pale skin.

    “No.” Odin answered.

    “What am I?” Loki breathed, setting the Casket firmly back into place; finally looking down at her hands to see them the Jotun blue she had recalled from before. It wasn’t a mistake then…

    “You’re my daughter.” Odin’s voice was gentle, as it usually was when he spoke to her alone, and short, like it always had been when talking in general. Loki turned towards him slowly, feeling different from before as she locked gazes with her father; seeing a flash in his eyes but watching him keep his straight face. She felt tingly, really, and strange.

    “What more than that?”
