    Summary

    S. Holmes and J. Watson, and a history of falling together and falling apart in a West so wild and free. It is a coincidence, really, that they keep meeting like this.

    Summary

    First Time story (loosely) based on a post I made on Tumblr a couple days ago.

    Not yet finished, rated explicit for later chapters. Will hopefully and most likely be finished before the New Year. Will be finished sometime in January February. Most likely will be around 10 chapters. Will be more than (but probably not many more than) 10 chapters.

    And thank you kindly, Queen Nicki Minaj, for the title lyrics.

    Summary

    Post CATWS: Bucky finds himself wandering in a series of tunnels beneath New York City. He is lost, alone, and for the first time in what he believes to be his life, he is afraid. Hallucinations and memories plague him as he recovers from the battle above the Patomac and all he wants is to find something to anchor him in this new and terrifying world. Steve Rogers is a distant and painful piece of his past, present, and future and the Winter Soldier cannot bring himself to face that reality just yet. When his skills begin to fail him, he finds himself left with nothing but a desperate trust forged by the kindness of a stranger who is far more than ordinary... Just like everything else on this god-forsaken planet.

    Summary

    It's the 1950s and Luke Skywalker is struggling with problems both at home and in his personal life. His father wants him to follow in his footsteps, a path he doesn't want to take, and he isn't willing to take no for an answer. And while his household is a wreck, full of screaming matches between his sister and father, he's found himself falling for his best friend, Han. The Summer ahead of them feels infinite and terrifying, and Luke isn't sure he'll make it to the next school year in one piece.

    --

    "He turned to Han and found rather than staring at Leia, he was focused on Luke. They locked eyes and Han turned back to the road, smiling out at the path ahead. In the split second he’d caught him, Luke had been held paralyzed by his gaze. The air rushed past his ears and Leia’s laughter seemed distant, and Luke felt so infinitely small. There was so much life in him, screams of his own still bouncing around his chest, potential that longed to break free.

    He watched Han. The moment clung onto him, Han’s eyes staring deep into his own. He was afraid of himself, shaking with every emotion welling up inside of him. He’d never been so afraid of what he knew he could do. To reach out and touch, to hold."

    Summary

    Damon has known her his entire life. He knows the old scar on her right knee is from tripping on a jagged rock in his father's gardens, as a girl.

    But they're bound somehow, by some kind of magic that transcends time and reason. She's his personal ghost, and Damon doesn't know if he's been blessed or cursed.

    Inspired by the novel, "The Time Traveler's Wife".

    Summary

    “Hey, ace, you okay?” That mask, that meant mustard gas, that meant trenches—it had to, right? So maybe this guy was a veteran of the Great War, had some shell shock or something? Burns from H would certainly explain the mask, the goggles, the gloves. Maybe this guy wasn’t all right in the head either, not after the war, not anymore. And Steve Rogers could sympathize with shit lungs and shit luck and not being able to breathe.

    “Hey. Here,” Steve scrounged his pockets, handed over his last quarter without even blinking. “Go get yourself a hot meal or something, okay soldier?“

    ...In 2014, Steve Rogers woke with a gasp.

    Summary

    William "Billy" Kaplan is the adopted son of a well-off British family and just happens to be engaged to one Miss Kate Bishop. Regardless, of course, of what he actually wishes. It seems like nothing will change his fate, not even a strange encounter with a pirate with white hair. But when another pirate known only as "Loki" invades the town and kidnaps Theodore "Teddy"-- Billy's personal servant and childhood friend, well, Billy isn't going to take that sitting down.

    He's lucky that the white-haired pirate is willing to help. Teddy, on the other hand, is not quite as lucky.

    Trapped aboard Loki's ship, Teddy realizes that the captain believes he can break a curse that's been in effect for half a century-- one that can only be broken by one with Maximoff blood. And why does Loki think Teddy is a Maximoff? Because of a necklace he took off Billy ten years ago.

    Full of hijinks, pirates, and everything you'd imagine from our favorite heroes taking part in such wild antics! (Pirates of the Caribbean AU but with many liberties taken)

    Summary

    Inspired by Brene Brown's work on shame, and the romantic music of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel, this is the story of a relationship breaking apart. If you ship Stony, please be warned: I'm not saying I don't buy the relationship, but I am saying, in this story, it does not work. This is a story about how shame can ruin a good relationship, and even though another good relationship may come along afterward, that does not change what happened to the first one.

    This is the story of what happens to Tony's first relationship, in post-WWII Hollywood, a town that is surprisingly hostile to secrets, considering that the whole place is thick with them. It's also the story of Loki, an undercover police officer, irresistably drawn to the man he's supposed to be arresting, on charges of lewd conduct.
