    Summary

    The War is over but the battle has just begun.
    Natasha Romanov has been left with her late husband's dream: a farm outside of the big city. But the place is far from operational and Natasha's only source of income is her job at the phone company. She rents out a room in hope of keeping the place from slipping from her fingers.
    Clint Barton has come back from the War with nothing but his duffle and nightmares. Traveling around the country looking for odd jobs, he comes across a room for rent on the East Coast.
    Together they help each other overcome the marks the War has left and come away with something more than they could have achieved on their own.

    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

    Once Torsten and Laura know their song is coming to an end, their lust and their rage are unstoppable. Together, they set out to avenge themselves against a society that had sought to suffocate their desires--and to enjoy each last one of the world's pleasures to the fullest.

    Torsten was the Devil's gift to me, the greatest blessing I had ever known. He was the older, male half of my own self, the most perfect father, brother, friend and lover I could ever have hoped for. It was true that he had brought me up in his own image, but as it was an image that was identical to what had already lain dormant in me, he had been serving but Nature itself, serving my best interests, and I couldn't have been more grateful.

    In his sickness, he had been the healthiest alternative for me; in his perversion, he had protected my inborn deviant nature; in his insanity, he had been the only thing that had kept me sane.

    He noticed I was shivering and laid a hand on my shoulder. "Laura."

    I clutched at my father's pale hand, the hand of beauty, the hand of power, the only hand that could set me free. "Bind me."

    Summary

    (The Mafia/ Bootleg AU that no one had written to my satisfaction, so I have to do it myself.)

    A multi-faceted battle is going on in the underground of the Big Apple. The Iron Family is stirring up trouble where trouble don't belong. The Hydra Gang is a developing cancer in the rise of Hitler. And the Brooklyn Boys just tryn' to get by in the midst of the depression.

    Out side all that, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers think they have found the love of their life (or as close as you can get in the homophobic society of 1934). Thing is, they don't know that one is a small time mob boss out for vengeance, and the other is a gang leader makin' profit off bathtub gin.

    Summary

    Six months after her cousin Tito’s death, Angie Martinelli’s life is finally lookin’ like it’s on the up and up. Her family isn’t really speaking to her, but they’re also not not speaking to her either. They all went to go see her in that film, at any rate. She’s been offered a second, more important part in a film shooting in February and her life feels as though it’s finally settling into a predictable sort of a routine.

    Or at least it does until her uncle calls her up outta the blue and tells her that his granddaughter is missing. “Your girl, she works for the government, right?”

    Summary

    Legend has it that King Arthur had not one but three Queens, all named Guinevere. So, if you look at it from that perspective, by comparison, this story isn't confused or confusing at all.

    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

    fem!Steve Rogers with Alternate Universe where HYDRA takes over before WWII. Johann Schmidt had managed to take over the world before WWII broke out, and James "Bucky" Barnes and Stephanie "Stevie" Rogers had looked at for each other through it all. Wishing to join the rebellion against Schmidt known as the Resistance, they attempt to prepare to leave New York to join, but they never get the chance when Stevie is taken into custody by HYDRA before they can. Believing Stevie to be dead, Bucky goes to join the Resistance. Years later, he is recruited into the SSR as one of the best snipers and is sent on a top secret mission to infiltrate HYDRA as a spy where he finds out that Stevie has been held hostage by the Red Skull all this time as his wife. The mission becomes more complicated as Stevie and Bucky begin a love affair that could possibly jeopardize the mission and their lives, especially with Stevie disguising herself as the superhero Captain America.

    This is slightly based off the movie The Tender Hook, which has Hugo Weaving in it as well, with CATFA elements. Rated M for language, violence, and mentions of non-con and possible non-description of non-con. Flames are not welcomed, but constructive criticism are.
