    Summary

    Bruce doesn’t like to credit one thing for saving his life, but if he did, it would be Haly’s Circus that Friday night in September, just as summer was beginning to die.

    (He'll always be a sucker for kids with sad eyes, no parents, and more fight than the world knows what to do with.)

     

    Or: in a universe where superheroes don't exist, Bruce Wayne finds his family.

    Summary

    Shield Industries wanted a mural to brighten the foyer of their building. When Steve took the job he was expecting a paycheque and some name recognition, not a crush he knew was deepening into something more.

    Bucky was a little annoyed to get stuck riding herd on the artist Shield hired. He was building security 2IC; he didn't have time to stand around and watch someone paint, but it was the CEO's pet project, so watch he would. He wasn't expecting to wind up taking a lot of cold showers. He wasn't expecting to make a friend, maybe the best friend he'd ever had.

    Neither of them expected to get attached. Neither of them expected to want the other. Problem is their wants don't align: Steve's asexual, Bucky's aromantic, and nothing's ever going to change that. But love doesn't have to mean sex, romance is only one kind of love, and if two people of good heart want it badly enough maybe they can make a life in the middle.

    Summary

    It starts off with an accident. Then Loki retaliates with the gingernuts, and Darcy can take that as nothing more than an open declaration for war.
    It just goes downhill from there.

    Summary

    "They are hired to protect the Stark heir. They get the first offer to kill him instead half an hour later."

    James Barnes and Natasha Romanov are skilled assassins. Hired to keep Tony Stark, the sole heir of his father's empire, safe, the last thing they expect is how much they may come to care for him during the course of their assignment.

    Summary

    Bucky and Steve still met in an alleyway. Bucky still put the fear of God into the bullies that abused Steve for who he was. The world around them was a little different, and the boys themselves were a little different, but this is still the story of Steve and Bucky, and they were still exactly who they needed to be.

     

    “How long have you known?” Bucky asked, quietly, while Steve untied his shoelaces.

    Steve froze for a moment, shoulders tight and high, but resumed untying the laces while he spoke, “Since I was a kid, I guess. I didn't realise for a long time, and I didn't come to terms with it until last year, ‘til my eighteenth birthday when I got twenty pink cards with daughter and niece and aunt on them, but I guess I've always known, in some way.”

    Summary

    Hanzo hated Valentine's Day and everything that went with it. This got exceptionally awkward for a man whose courier service saw business triple in the lead up to February 14th.

    A series of 'special deliveries' between Mr. Jack Morrison and Mr. Gabriel Reyes drew his attention. Initially, it was because he wasn’t sure if it was the world's most polite form of hate mail or the world's most awkward flirting...

    But then there was something about Mr. Reyes' son, Jesse, that kept him coming back...

    “I got you a present” is always an ominous phrase coming from Tony. It could mean a nice cake from the fancy French patisserie a few blocks from the tower, or a rare supercar, or even a fleet of strippers. Or socks. That one time it had been socks.

    Summary

    If only Kara Danvers didn't work the same shift that interfered with Lena's horrendous habit of strolling in for a coffee at nearly twelve in the morning, maybe none of this ever would have happened in the first place.

    Or, maybe it would have, because as Alex Danvers claims, there is no escaping the doomed rom-com cliché once it finds you.

    Summary

    There was a concern in those big eyes and it took Bucky’s breath away but not in a short-of-the-panic-attack sort of way and more damn-I’m totally-gone sort of way.

    “Hey…” and then softer, “Hey, hush, breath with me. In and out slowly, there’s no rush.”

    Bucky nodded and tried to even his breathing.

    “That’s right, you’re doing great, soldier.”

    Bucky blinked in surprise, his rising panic going away. “How?” His voice came out harsh as if he didn’t use it for a long time.

    The man shrugged and only then Bucky noted that the stranger was pretty fucking handsome and that’s just Bucky life isn’t it, he wanted to groan at his luck.

    “Well, you military guys carry themselves the same way.” The man hummed and then smiled. “My best friend in the Air Force.” He added and Bucky slowly nodded not knowing what to do with that information.

    “So pray tell Mr. Dark and Handsome how did you end up in my humble moving abode?”

    Summary

    Taking a shuddering breath, Tony shuts off the alarm, puts the phone away to stall for another moment or two, and then finally gets up, and reaches for what he has—very aptly, in his humble opinion—named The Stick of Destiny lying on the edge of the sink. He fumbles with it, almost drops it twice before he manages to turn it right side up, and sees the two bright pink lines that mean he’s royally screwed. And not in the fun way.

    “Shit,” Tony croaks.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers is struck by a persistent headache as the dawn rises over DC.

    So are—simultaneously—Natasha Romanov in the Muscovite night, James Barnes in the dull grey of a Berlin afternoon, Tony Stark stumbling out of his Afghan cave, Bruce Banner in the crushing heat of the Nevada desert, Clint Barton squinting up at the Vegas lights, Loki Laufeyson under the Scandinavian sun, and Prince T'Challa amidst the West African rainforest.

    Surely it’s nothing but an odd coincidence.

    Summary

    “Actually, I am dating someone.” He says.

    What ends up happening is, he says the first name that comes to mind.

    What ends up happening is, he blurts out, “Steve Rogers.”

    Without thinking, obviously. Because if he had been thinking, he would have thought of something better than this.

    And that's how Bucky ends up bringing Steve as a date to his sister's wedding.
