    Summary

    Started from these two posts on Tumblr and a conversation with my enabler:

     

    I now am probably going to be writing a world where Peggy and Steve are the power couple of the 1940s, Bucky either didn’t fall from the train or was discovered by the SSR, and it’s a happy peppy OT3 kicking ass, taking no one’s shit, and founding SHIELD.

     

    Oh man, but Peggy works in the SSR office, and gets all this misogynistic bullshit, and then Steve finds out about it, and comes in, and everyone’s terrified of him, so they let Peggy answer the phone one day, but send three men on the same mission, and they all turn up unconscious in a dumpster while she’s back at her desk filing her nails with the object sitting in front of her, and Steve’s just like “Look at my badass wife, you’d better respect her.”

    Summary

    It’s the autumn of 1941, war is raging in Europe, German U-boats are raiding Allied convoys in the Atlantic, the Luftwaffe is bombing English cities, and the cryptographers at Bletchley Park are working feverishly to decode their enemies' encrypted communications. One should consider this challenge and distraction enough for capricious codebreaker Sherlock Holmes. But the true enigmas are yet waiting to be deciphered: an unbreakable code, a strange murder, and the appearance of Surgeon Captain John H. Watson of the Royal Navy.

    Summary

    “你呢,Barnes?”Dugan问。他的声音让Bucky如梦初醒,把他从回忆中那个洒满窗外渗进的阳光,破落而狭小的公寓里捞出来。“你有女孩儿在老家等你回去吗?”

    瞬间有个回答呼之欲出,他明明可以自负地咧嘴,似笑非笑地摇摇头。但这时候的Bucky,筋疲力尽、饥肠辘辘,心累到寸步难移,排里昨天他妈的还死了一个人。他的嘴里漫着一股碘酒味,他的脚刺痛不已,无论哪个都没不久将好转的势头,于是突然之间,Bucky想Steve想得要死。

    “是的,”Bucky脱口而出,在他清晰意识到自己在说什么前,那几个字已经自作主张从他嘴边逃逸,“是啊,我有。”

    Summary

    SHIELD has always asked a lot from its elite. From the very beginning, they've made sacrifices to keep the world safe from threats the world isn't ready to deal with. And that's why there has always been some leniency in their fraternization policies. Because when the weight of the world is on your shoulders, it helps to have people you love and trust as close as they can be. And when SHIELD falls, it seems that some traditions are worth carrying over to the next generation of protectors.

    Summary

    Grantaire is a drunk and a flirt; an intelectual when he wants to be; an artist if he feels like it, and a cynic even though he does not always care to truly show it.

    Grantaire is loud, obnoxious, artistic, political, hard-drinking, and better-read and better-spoken than most men.

    But most of all, Grantaire is a woman, or anyway she use to be. That is until she came to Paris and faced the harsh truth of the French society under the Restauration. So she turned to wine, though she was already attracted to it. Then she turned to male clothing. And then, she met the Amis.

    And then she was swayed between their words of Liberty, Equality and Fraternity. And she was wesmerized by their leader in red, breathing fire and living for his passion.

    But surely enough, she slowly became fed up by all the talks that were taking place in the group while they kept excluding citizens from their Revolution and their beliefs. As they reject shamelessly yet another girl who wanted to assist in their meeting, the last straw for the woman dressed as a man snaps.

    And they are all in for a surprising quest between reality, prejudices and ideals.
