    Summary

    The barest thought of an idea begins to grow from the time he is nine, expanded upon throughout his teenage years and cultivated throughout college. Tony wonders what could have stopped his father, could have stopped other kids like him from growing up like he did.

    Later, he returns to this idea.

    He looks at Sam’s family and tries to scrape together an idea of what made his husband kind, and brave, and strong. He looks at Clint and what pushed him to be the greatest in the land while still being humble. He looks at Bruce and how the doctor is so kind even while containing a monster within his body.

    -

    Tony Stark uses the entire world as the base for his experiment. How far can one person with endless resources change society? How much of an impact can one person have?

    The independent variable: how much money funneled into charities that never had enough resources before.

    Dependent variable: how big of a wave of change can be produced.

    -

    The very fabric of society quakes.

    Summary

    He looked up and smiled sadly. New York lights made it impossible to see starts, but he could imagine them all the same, distant and beautiful, giant balls of fire and energy, existing for so long. They’ve seen so much, and they would continue to watch, untouched and undisturbed by petty human problems. Their hearts were made of elements immune to emotions, and they had long lives ahead of them, before the gravity won the war and made their cores, their hearts, collapse, transform into something different.

    And wasn't that what happened to humans? They existed, until something happened to change their hearts, either breaking them or building them anew. Just like stars, they could continue to exist to change into black holes.

    Summary

    John's married and on his honeymoon. Alone in Baker Street, Sherlock needs to vent and writes down his pent-up feelings in chemically explosive series of letters to John.

    " I confess, I am disappointed you have chosen to form base pairs with another, John. I would suggest dissolution as the solution, but I could never ask you to abandon a marriage for an unsavory companion of dubious morals. Or worse -a high functioning sociopath. And yet. . .you give my electrons a positive charge. Who are we to deny this absurdly simple chemistry, John?. . ."

    Sebastian graciously (and very chemically) declines Sullivan's advances: Here

    So, she sets her ion someone else . . .
     
    "I will not mince words with you, butler -I do not wish to be a nonparticipating reactant. Moreover, I get the impression you unzip dna strands more than periodically. . .Though your mysterious allure piques my interest more than Schrödinger's cat, perhaps you are right. . .Your suggestion of covalent bonding sounds ideal. In fact, I think I may have my ion someone already. . ."

    Summary

    A little piece about how Sherlock perceives himself and his flatmate. Dated some time before the fall. Sherlock did not delete the stars here. My first fan fiction.


    There was the man who was the midnight sky. Velvety blackness with sparkling sequins strewn across. Aloof. Alien. Cold. Considered beautiful by some who looked up at night, enchanted by the meadows of twinkling lights against the dark background.
    ...
    Stars were also dying, of course. Some were cooling down to oblivion with a small resigned sigh. Some terminated their performance with an orgasmic explosion of plasma and colour that the humans would call 'supernova'. 'Amazing', they would say when they spotted it. The man had done that, too. Aeons ago, on a small insignificant planet, some place called Sussex. Lying next to his brother and gazing up, filled with wonder. His brother? How could the night sky have a brother?

    Summary

    If Barry can go twice as fast, he can save twice as many. Compelling the electricity in his veins, he can stretch any scrap of time to be enough. Once he realizes this, he has stepped off the ledge of the world into a void all his own.

    Which is the addiction: the speed or the saving? Either way, he refuses to stop. Either way, the facts of the world will soon bear witness that Barry Allen no longer has the choice.

    Summary

    Demonstrating that brainy is the new sexy, Sherlock Holmes pens a poetic declaration of his feelings to John Watson-in the way only Sherlock can. . .

    The adrenaline pumping through our veins, just the two of us against the world, let us become cosine squared and sin squared - and make one, John...How you fascinate me more than the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Your beauty cannot be spanned by a finite basis of vectors. It is as profound as Euler's analogy. Perfect as a golden ratio or the Vitruvian man.

    Madison does not rush; she moves decisively when it is time, but she does not rush.

    Which is why she does not fall to her knees to blossom poetry, and why love comes dropping slow.
