    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

    Deception and perfection are wonderful traits, one will breed love, the other, hate.
    Historia Reiss is everything a young woman should be- on the surface.
    She's a woman with the most enchanting smile anyone's ever seen, a woman with impeccable style, flawless even if it's five in the morning and she's been awake for God knows how long. She has a long line of suitors, but one lover constantly at her side.
    Coincidentally, the same woman who killed her own father and holds a city in her perfectly manicured hand, but who could prove a thing?

    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 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's ability to put together a team.

    Summary

    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.

    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.
