    Summary

    (Cold War AU) To Bucky Barnes, Tony Stark used to be just a handsome face, a name associated with sex scandals, shiny new toys, and weapons manufacturing, until Stark’s controversial press conference puts him at the top of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s watch list, and at the center of Bucky’s world. What starts as an assignment soon tips over into obsession, and all too soon Bucky finds himself risking everything to help the one person he’s felt a connection to since being a prisoner of the KGB. The only problem is, Tony Stark doesn’t even know he exists yet.

    Summary

    Khemia: The Two Kingdoms, land of Sedge and Bee, nourished by the Great River, and ruled over by the Pharaohs through the grace of the bloodline of Ra.

    Levi was born into this land, the son of a harem slave, unclaimed and unacknowledged by the noble that fathered him and destined for the same life as his mother.

    That is, until a chance encounter with a boy whose eyes blazed like green fire set him on a path that would take him far from home before leading him back to where he truly belonged.

    Summary

    The year was 1912.

    Loki Laufeyson was a penniless begger off the streets with no family and no means to live. And after so long, he had lost hope for a better life, and his last, desperate option was to escape. Then there was Thor Odinson, who never wanted for anything. A lifelong aristocrat, he had riches, respect, and was about to marry the wealthy beauty Sif. But for all he had, he still longed for what he didn't. He wanted something to live for, something that gave him some sense of purpose.

    It was mere coincidence that brought them both onto the RMS Titanic. It was chance alone that brought them together. And with unseen disaster looming, with the aid of some unlikely allies, they go beyond all they had ever known to reach what they thought impossible: real love.

    (Loosely inspired by the film Titanic, with other elements thrown in)

    Summary

    In all honesty, Harry was long forgotten, cast aside by a dimpled stranger and too much champagne. He was almost glad, now, that Harry hadn’t come, because he wouldn’t have met this stranger, this tall man who could make his heart flutter with a single glance. 

    Victorian!AU where Louis is a wealthy lord throwing a masquerade ball for his birthday and Harry is a toymaker who's only confident when he's wearing a mask.

    Summary

    During the 1930's and 1940's, social expectations between men and women were rather strict, even amidst the Depression and early news about the impending war. When a skinny boy popped into your life in 1938, you never expected where you would soon be heading.

    Alternatively: a self-indulgent fic of Bucky and the reader, and a lot of spankings, before and during WWII. There is also a lot of pre-serum Steve.

    (Additional tags will be added as they're included. There will eventually be smut.)

    Summary

    "[...] lesbians and gay men writing letters to their lovers and friends faced the special problem of wartime censorship. Military censors, of course, cut out all information that might aid the enemy, but this surveillance made it necessary for gay and lesbian correspondents to be careful not to expose their homosexuality. To get around this, gay men befriended sympathetic censors or tricked others by using campy phrases, signing a woman’s name (like Dixie or Daisy), or changing the gender of their friends. Sailors became WAVEs, boyfriends became WACs, Robert became Roberta. There must exist, hidden in closets and attics all over America, a huge literature of these World War II letters between lesbians and between gay men that would tell us even more about this important part of American history." - Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women In World War Two, by Allan Berube

    The Regal Copper Laurentius accidentally acquires a captain, Tharkay spectates, Temeraire is Not Actually an Orphan, and no one really knows who's leading France. Someone should probably get on that, considering England is at war with the place.

    Summary

    Bucky sometimes caught himself thinking, about the war: is all of this happening because old men saw the raw life in young men and wanted to squelch it? It was the same thing he had thought in school. Running track. When he had worked in the crew building the World’s Fair Railroad. And especially when he got his draft letter: they want to crush us like a piece of tin on train tracks.

    Begins at Kreischberg prison camp, continues after the rescue.

    Lots of angst. Lots of literary references, foreshadowing, and symbolism porn. A little bit of actual porn.

    Oh, and also there’s a bit where we learn seven-year-old Bucky tried to play pirates by naming Steve “Jolly Rogers.”

    Summary

    It’s wrong, everyone says. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Why would anyone choose that?

    That is not her brothers. Sure Stevie is small, only a few inches taller than her, but that’s because he’s been sick so often. And, alright, Bucky could be a bit of a dandy, always fussing about looking his best, but he ain’t no queen.

    So then why were they kissing like queers? It isn’t the first time neither. She’s seen first kisses, and she’s seen people that are going steady kiss, and she’s seen husbands and wives kiss.

    Bucky and Stevie kiss like husbands and wives kiss.
     

    A life is made up of memories, both the good and the bad. These are Rebecca Barnes' memories. This is her life.

    Summary

    Set after their mission in Paris: All is good now that they were able to stop Raven from killing Trask; the future is even looking better. Without anywhere else to go, Erik ends up going back to the Xavier Mansion with Charles and Hank. Tension in the house rises as old wounds reopen and the three of them are forced to confront each other’s emotions. Erik doesn’t mind, as he needs a place to stay and as long as he doesn’t say anything that will make Charles punch him in the face, they’re good. But it’s not that easy to live under the same roof as your ex. And it’s definitely not acceptable to Erik, the way Hank is looking at Charles.
