    Summary

    In a world where magic came back and humans immediately adapted and turned it into just another tool, they soon learned one thing it couldn't do is heal. What it could do, however, is soul bond the sick or injured to another person as a way of creating something like healing.

    When sick-all-his-life Steve Rogers wins the lottery, he decides to spend his winnings on one thing: a BodyGuard, someone to share their strength and their health with him through a soul bond. He chooses Shield, because they're the very best in the business, and he chooses James Buchanan Barnes, because he thinks they'll be compatible. He turns out to be a little more right than he ever thought he'd be.

    Summary

    “It’s not Finn’s” Clarke mumbled, too soft for Octavia to hear.

    “Hmm?” Octavia asked.

    “It’s not Finn’s,” Clarke repeated, this time louder. Her voice cracked as she burst into tears. That helped her avoid what inevitably would have been Octavia’s next question; If Finn wasn’t the father, who was?

    -------

    After a bad breakup with Finn, Clarke wants to forget for just one night, and if Bellamy can help, she’s not going to complain. But when their hookup has some unexpected complications, Clarke must face the fact that her life isn’t going the way she planned, and Bellamy realizes that Clarke is more than just his little sister’s best friend.

    Summary

    Tony has the one thing in life that he always believed he'd be denied---a stable (enough) relationship with a person that he can admit he's absolutely in love with. Yet just when it seems like things are about to finally get comfortable, he finds himself at odds with Loki's parents, plus occasionally the indecipherable man himself. And it's not like Tony's own demons are about to call it quits.
