    Summary

    "Ma'am? Ma'am, please don't put your cat on the phone." Bucky choked on his coffee and stared at Steve. "She's gone to find a pen, so she put the cat on the phone while I wait. Puss puss puss," Steve said, in the voice people used to talk to cats everywhere. "Who's a good kitty?" He paused and briefly held the phone away from his ear. Bucky could hear faint meowing. "Well, at least the cat's listening to me." 

    Steve and Bucky work for a government department, giving quasi-legal advice to members of the public. While most of their callers are perfectly ordinary, there are some exceptions to that rule that make things...interesting. When they pick up the phone, they never know what's going to be waiting on the other end.

    Summary

    It all started her sophomore year of college. The family situation changed, and all of a sudden Darcy Lewis found herself unable to pay for her next year of school. What was a girl to do? She was already working part time throughout the school year to support herself and save a bit for tuition, but unless she found a truly amazing summer job there was no way that she was going to be able to come back to Culver in the fall. So Darcy googled “summer jobs that make the most money for college students” and applied to the top few. Little did she know that this was the decision that changed her life.

    Summary

    A sleek black sedan pulled to a stop in front of the front door of Shield Bar & Grille, and before the chauffeur could get around to open the door, Tony Stark had opened the door for himself, climbed out of the car, and was standing there staring at the building with a huge smile on his face. Shield Bar & Grille was his baby, everyone knew it, and he didn't care who saw him preening over it.

    (or, how the twins move in to Stark Tower, how Natasha and Bruce love each other but can't be together, Bobbi is being tortured by her ex-husband Hunter working with her, Thor leads the gang of weirdos, Loki and Darcy banter at the bar, Aldrich Killian is Tony Stark's sworn enemy, Roxxon Bar is a shithole, and much, much more!)

    Summary

    Nico di Angelo is a damaged soul. After his overdose of sleeping pills, his father Hades di Angelo – under a psychiatrist strict advice – decides to put him into Blank Hill Hospital care, a mental institution in the state of Kentucky.

    There, Nico will meet other damaged souls as his. And as Percy Jackson's.

    Maybe, the concept of healing means just growing up with the awareness that the world is messed up.

    Summary

    Adrien and Marinette Agreste have the perfect life- aside from a few couples counseling sessions every now and then- but hey, every couple goes through that, right? They attend dinners with each other's families, go out dancing, make small talk with their neighbors, and they even have a cat. He mows the lawn and she makes dinner. He pours the wine and she passes the salt. When he clicks off the light to go to sleep, she follows shortly after, forgetting about her book and laying her head upon her husband's chest. It was easy, simple domestic life.

    And so what if Marinette keeps a knife strapped to her thigh at all times and Adrien is rarely caught without a gun tucked into his pants? Those are just tiny details.

    Summary

    "She finally, finally, takes in the sight of the woman standing in-front of her and the rest of her furious words die in the back of her throat because oh, oh, no-one should look like that. Tall and blonde and so very gorgeous, barely in her mid-twenties with sparkling apologetic eyes, a pair of sinfully tight black jeans on her hips and a sleeveless t-shirt to show off the muscle in those arms that had caught Cat so quickly." AKA the hot neighbour AU that no-one asked for or needed.
