    Summary

    A story of love, redemption, and pancakes.

    Cleared of all criminal charges as the Winter Soldier, Bucky is sent back to Brooklyn to live with Steve. With the help of Steve and Natasha, mountains of food and Netflix, and strange psychic journeys through his battered memories, Bucky slowly figures out what kind of person he wants to become.

    Even if that kind of person has inconvenient, developing feelings for a certain someone. Or two. And even if Hydra is still out there somewhere.

    (Come for the romance and recovery narrative, stay for the culinary education.)

    ...

    A summary of Project Regenesis is provided in the end notes of the first chapter if you haven't read it or if you need a refresher. But you can go in cold, too.

    Now with Chapter 1 art by yawpkatsi!

    Summary

    “Once a vase is truly broken. It will never be the same. Even when you try to put all the pieces together. The signs of it once being broken; the cracks that never end, not being able to hold the same amount of fluid, the sloppy glue job, and the missing pieces. The ones, you couldn’t find or were too small to see. Will always show.” - Unknown

    Something, that all the young broken heroes of UA learned way too early in their hero's’ career when they left junior year.

    With all that they’ve seen and experience it’s not a surprise that.......

    Many didn’t come back for their senior year. Most who chose not to come back are the ones’ that aren’t completely shattered and are able to turn their backs on their hero dreams to hopefully live normal lives but the ones who stayed. Are probably the most broken are the most destroyed but with that, the many scars they carry comes with one much stronger resolve.

    They will stop the villains at all cost before they do any more damage Even if they were to scatter into dust.

    Because that is what a Hero does. Someone who sacrifice themselves for the greater good.

    So, senior year begins with many, many changes........

    Summary

    Dean misses the deadline to sign up for a recreational activity and he ends up with no other option but ballet class. He decides not to go, but out of curiosity, he checks out the classroom. Not like he's actually going to ballet class or anything, ballet is lame and girly and it would be terrible for his well-known bad boy reputation. The name Dean Winchester is a synonym for trouble, and everyone at school knows it. When he's lured into the ballet room he runs into the single most gorgeous guy Dean has ever laid eyes on, and decides to do whatever it takes (even going to ballet class) to charm his way into his pants. Cas discovers it is horribly hard to ignore Dean Winchester when he's hitting on you, and Dean discovers ballet isn't lame or easy. At all.

    Summary

    Dean unexpectedly receives a package with a fully functional hyper-realistic, sort-of-attractive and likable robot, named Castiel.

    Castiel adjusts to "civilian life" away from his Drug Lord Master's garrison of Android soldiers, and is more than happy to learn about Humanity from Dean. Dean adjusts to having a robot who asks all sorts of strange questions, that's more adorable than a metal man has any business being...

    Also, food will be featured heavily, whether or not it's actually important to the plot, or if it's because I always write when hungry, you can decide. But I suggest making a sandwich before you sit down and read this. Trust me.

    Also all science, is psuedo-science, as I'm no scientist.

    Summary

    Summer will continue for weeks, yet isn't it simultaneously the end of all things? Henry is gone without another word, reigns in his hands and his eyes up to the latched window above the garden's enclave. Pink roses full and abundant; he remembers the laced subtext, the kindred lapse of two people meeting by accident, perhaps, or by something else entirely.

    It's the moments, after all, that measure the wealth of life and the substance of it. However fleeting, isn't there always the end and the beginning -- the prologue, the first few chapters, the resolution, the confession, the first kiss, the first argument, the end even if it isn't happy, the understanding that love is always on the brink of death, too, waits so quietly in the night for courage to make of lovers what honesty does for trust: hope?

    Love.

    Unclaimed and almost unwarranted -- the last either of them expected, the first apology. The distinct before and after, the tale as all lovers go.

    Summary

    (n.) a person who loves flowers.

    -

    It’d struck a wave through Jungkook, though, making the thoughts in his head a little jumbled. Seokjin did resemble a flower...in some ways. His smile was enough to make people stop and watch, the way it curved prettily, his teeth nice and on show, and Jungkook thinks people have the same reactions to the way roses finally bloom.

    Summary

    "It's called Transdynamic," Jess tells him.

    All he can think is: There it is; a word for what I am, what I've been my whole life. And Sam knows language. If there's a word for what he is then he isn't the only one--isn't the freak he was afraid he was.

    "It's when your body chemistry and your brain chemistry don't match up."
