    Summary

    The War is over but the battle has just begun.
    Natasha Romanov has been left with her late husband's dream: a farm outside of the big city. But the place is far from operational and Natasha's only source of income is her job at the phone company. She rents out a room in hope of keeping the place from slipping from her fingers.
    Clint Barton has come back from the War with nothing but his duffle and nightmares. Traveling around the country looking for odd jobs, he comes across a room for rent on the East Coast.
    Together they help each other overcome the marks the War has left and come away with something more than they could have achieved on their own.

    Summary

    August, 1941. On the streets of Gotham City, they say the Four Families are untouchable, and no one is more dangerous than Batman. Tonight, both these myths are about to be shattered. The first by the Dark Knight himself. The second by a myth far older than the City. One of the deep myths before the oldest books. A myth that's mighty, and unrelenting, and wondrous.

    Summary

    This place, this ratty, dirty, broken building with their old mattress and itchy blankets; it’s Nico’s haven, his escape. What started as hushed kisses and holding hands in dark alleyways where no one would see has bloomed to so much more within those old walls, Nico wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world.

    Summary

    There never was just one Captain America. How could there be, when there are an infinite number of universes?

    In one, James Barnes lost his dearest friend to diphtheria at the age of fourteen. In another, Steve Rogers arrived in France to find James Barnes listed among those KIA in the capture of the 107th.

    And not all Captain Americas are created equal, but things always balance themselves out in the end and universes align more often than we’d guess. Thor could have told them that if anyone had asked him.

    Summary

    When Steve first met Natasha he certainly hadn't expected her to join the team. He had been on a mission. And she had tried to kill him. But he's always been one to give people a second chance, tried to see the best in them even when they couldn't. And somewhere along those lines, they went from begrudged teammates to friends and finally-with the realization hitting him like a brick-to something completely and wonderfully more. Getting frozen for almost 70 years complicates things a little though. And what's more complicated is waking up and finding out that the girl he loved in the 40s is just as alive as he is.

    Summary

    As a matter of course, Enjolras didn't drink, or rarely, as he generally felt better-suited having his wits entirely about him. But the bar was bright and warm and more inviting than he generally supposed bars should be, its wine list expansive enough even for Combeferre to immediately dive into a glass with excitement; and the encounter with the fortune teller was still lingering like a sour taste in the back of his mouth, and as he was constantly being reminded, they were on holiday, and interestingly colored drinks kept being placed directly in front of him; and suddenly it was hours later and Enjolras was, without a doubt, completely and utterly drunk
