    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

    “Greenburg’s dead…” Stiles said in a whisper. Derek didn’t answer, just stared up into the sky, trying to catch his breath. All he wanted was a steady job, to provide for his sisters. He never wanted to kill anybody.

    “Sir? We should get moving…” Stiles put his hand on Derek’s shoulder. His eyes were wide and frightened when Derek finally met them. “Please, Derek. Let’s get out of here.”

    Derek jerked Stiles into his arms. Stiles made a squeak as he squeezed too tightly. Derek couldn’t make himself care. He buried his face into Stiles neck, taking breath after haggard breath of that sweet, cinnamon scent. He wanted to bite, mark and claim and take his mate out of that awful place. Instead he ran his tongue along the length of his neck, relishing the pulse when he found it. Stiles whimpered slightly and rested his head on Derek’s shoulder.

    “You alright?” Derek asked. His fingers ran carefully over Stiles’ injured arm, trying to gauge the extent of the wound.

    “Yes,” Stiles’ breath was warm against him. “We should go…”

    Derek pushed his lips to his mate’s neck, trying to memorize the salty sweet taste. “You’re alright,” he said, his mind hazy.

    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

    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

    fem!Steve Rogers with Alternate Universe where HYDRA takes over before WWII.

    Johann Schmidt, leader of the terrorist organization known as HYDRA, had taken over the world after the Great War and ruled it with an iron fist, and Bucky and Stephanie "Stevie" had looked at for each other through it all. Wishing to join the rebellion known as the Resistance, they prepare to leave New York to join, but that all changes when Schmidt comes to New York and takes an interest in Stevie, taking her as his wife. Believing Stevie to be dead, Bucky goes to join the Resistance on his own and gets recruited into the SSR as one of the best snipers. Five years later, he is sent on a top secret mission to infiltrate Schmidt's castle as a spy where he finds out that Stevie has been alive this whole time. Slowly, Bucky helps Stevie heal from the scars that Schmidt carved into her heart, beginning a love affair that could jeopardize Bucky's mission and his life.

    Rated M for language, violence, and possible graphic-description of non-con, so rating may go up, if that is the case. Also, characters may be OOCish, but I will try my best to keep them in character. Flames are not welcomed, but constructive criticisms are.

    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

    The Winter Soldier was the perfect solider. Impeccable, obedient and mindless. He could have shaped the century, but one fatal miscalculation was made; no one could have predicted how stubborn that little kid from Brooklyn could be. And, in the long run, they probably should have kept better tabs on that dame from England, too.

    AKA, people need to stop underestimating Peggy Carter.

    Summary

    On a stormy January night in 1979 there was born a little pup in the local healing facility in Lawrence, Kansas. This pup was special. Not only was he the first born of his parents, Mary and John, but he should grow up to be a marvellous, change inspiring man. However, there was one tiny flaw in him, which earned him social slander, but also made him fight against societal prejudice all his life and incidentally helped him find the love of his life. This is his story. The story of Dean Winchester, an alpha who smelled like an omega, who was put on this earth to change it forever, with a little help from his friends and family.

    John Watson is seventeen years old and has his life planned out: medical school, a commission, and an opportunity to change the world. He just has to get through three weeks at The Copper Beeches - a resort owned by one of his father's patients - with his annoying sister and his perfect parents before he's off to Cambridge. But John has a secret he's trying desperately to keep, and, it seems, so is just about everyone around him, including the incredibly gorgeous and amazing dance teacher, Sherlock Holmes, and his partner Irene Adler.

    Too bad Jim Moriarty seems to know precisely what everyone is hiding.
