    Summary

    Everything Bucky owns has been packed away in boxes, hidden away, tucked into a corner on the truck for them to take to the next house. Everything Steve’s known so well for years now. And it’s so strange to look around and see it all gone.
    They’ve known it’s coming for weeks now, and Steve still can’t believe it. Still can’t quite wrap his head around the fact that his best friend, the one person who means more to him than anything, is leaving.

    Summary

    Summary

    The hand clamps over Tony’s mouth to stop his scream, shoving him back against a tree and holding his hands behind his back in a single iron-tight grip. Then Tony’s looking into the calmly superior eyes of Justin Hammer. Immediately Tony snaps at the hand over his mouth with sharp incisors and Justin hisses at the sharp sting, grabbing onto his jaw instead and getting a better grip on the hands behind his back.

    Tony spits in his face.

    Summary

    Tony walked into the sparsely crowded coffee shop in that cold winter morning. He quickly made way to the counter and practically threw himself on the counter, surprising the blonde barista. He was not only the owner of a multi-billionaire company, but he was also only wearing a tank top, jeans, and sandals, instead of a coat and two or more layers like a normal human being. But, he was Tony Stark, he could do what he wanted.

    Summary

    It never bothered Charles that he essentially belonged to someone else from birth. In fact, he felt quite the opposite. From birth he had been told stories about that mysterious boy called The Prince, or his Betrothed, and who one day would be called Husband. Charles would catch his thoughts drifting off while in private lessons under strict, stoic tutors, learning the piano under painful raps to the knuckles, locked away, looking at the sun through stained glass, his mind slipping into the hazy day dream of his life yet to come...

    Summary

    Bucky is taken on a mission, and Steve will go against every order to find him. CIA AU.

    "When you get him back, what's the first thing you're gonna do?" Sam asks.

    Steve very consciously does not think about the state Bucky will be in when—not if, never if—he comes home. "I'm gonna touch him, so I know he's real."

    Summary

    Making it back from the war is not the same as making it back alive, but it's a start. Mechanic AU.

    The first day on the job, Bucky hits the ground every time an engine revs; his hands shake when he holds a wrench. But something about the grease and the smell of gasoline feels like home.

    Summary

    AU. Most people, when they break up, sort through their record collections, possibly chuck each other’s clothes onto the sidewalk, engage in soul-destroying coffee dates where they try to sort through the emotional debris, and then leave each other the fuck alone.

     

    Clint and Natasha were never very good at acting like normal people, though, which is why they run a cafe together.

    Summary

    "Good God, Erik thought. The Prince of Wales is gay."

    Charles lives in the unceasing glare of the public spotlight, yet keeps his sexual orientation a closely held secret, afraid he could lose his throne and force his deeply troubled younger sister into a role that would crush her. Erik, journalist and world traveler, has been a loner most of his life; he has little patience for closet cases. But a chance meeting in Kenya brings these two opposites together and sets in motion a love affair that will challenge the British monarchy -- and their most deeply held beliefs about who they are, and who they should be.

    Summary

    The weird thing is, Charles always introduces Raven as his sister, but he never calls Erik his brother. Erik would be bothered, except he prefers not to think of Charles as his brother, either. He can’t figure it out for four years, and then suddenly he can.

    Or. A non-powered AU in which Sharon Xavier never remarries, and Charles 'adopts' not only Raven, but Erik too.

    Summary

    Professor Charles Xavier is pretty hopeless when it comes to his wardrobe, and his family and students take it upon themselves to get him onto "Not Wearing That You Won't" as a guest. Fashion consultants Emma Frost and Erik Lehnsherr forcibly put him on the path to becoming as sleek and stylish as everyone knows he can be. For Erik, this episode's taping is going to be the most challenging to survive yet.

    A "What Not to Wear" AU for XMFC.
