    Summary

    When Steve is discovered in the ice three months after the Valkyrie crashed, Peggy’s instinct is to drop everything to ensure he makes a full recovery. But the SSR isn’t done with her yet; not when Hydra is already spreading to the Soviet Union, when all of Europe is still reeling in the aftermath of the war. It’s pure coincidence that Sergeant James Barnes is the person assigned to accompany her.

    It’s supposed to be one last mission before they can both return home to Steve.

    It isn’t supposed to change everything.

     
    [This fic presents a self-contained story that can easily be read on its own, but can also be interpreted as a canon-divergent sequel to "You’d Be So Nice To Come Home To".]

    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.

    Summary

    *Mute was a self-hating bisexual woman. She was also the security AI for a Korean generation starship that had regressed to a feudal society, and had spent hundreds of years internalizing their misogyny and repression. What chance did a lesbian, who had come from the bright and shiny space future outside of that isolated slower-than-light ship to investigate its disappearance, have of marrying her? Even if they were both strongly attracted to each other.

    Here's my attempt at answering that question, and bridging the narrative gap between Analogue: A Hate Story and Hate Plus.

    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

    “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

    "Shut up, you're perfect," Lydia said, and pressed her lips to the space between Cora's breasts. "I won't allow anyone to insult my mate like that."

     

    Cora pulled her close, kissing her hair so Lydia wouldn't see her expression. Lydia threw the word around like she didn't know what it meant sometimes. Mates got married and had children. They didn't meet in secret in a dirty speakeasy, to fuck before someone noticed they were gone. Some rich boy would marry Lydia eventually and she'd disappear from Cora's life. She didn't mind it, so long as she didn't think about it. She was a female alpha, a mistake of genetics. Alpha girls didn’t have mates, certainly not Lydia Martin, with half of Beacon Hills as a dowry. As long as she didn't think of it, she could enjoy what she had, Lydia's sweet scent mixing with hers, that beautiful voice begging for her touch.
