    Summary

    Edward got closer. He just couldn't believe how young she looked. For all he knew she could have been snapped away from Amestris just minutes after he had left her, never to return by her side. His brows knitted together from thinking about the painful memory. A gamut of 'what if's' suddenly invaded his mind and put weight upon his aching heart. Remorse was a cold bitch.

    Summary

    No one can escape their destiny. Fate is written. History rewrites itself, and no man can escape it. Neither can a woman.

    Or, that one where I fuse Percy Jackson and the Song of Achilles and everything is just as tragic.

    Summary

    In the 1950s, Sherlock has been blessed with a life of relative ease, a marriage to a woman who is besotted without interfering and the freedom to do the work he enjoys. Then, there is the doctor, John Watson, who treats Molly’s nerves with a kindness Sherlock cannot replicate, who makes her smile, small and shy as a tormented cat in response to love. It does not kill him that he is losing her; it kills him that he is very slowly losing himself to the same man.

    Summary

    Enjolras is to become the omega of the Prince (and soon to become King) of France, but would rather die than be practically enslaved. With his friends all the way back in Paris and out of reach, he finds help from an unexpected source while at the same time discovering a secret about himself that changes his life forever and puts him at even greater risk. But he has no intention of giving up and is determined to open people's eyes to their own errors and finally free the oppressed from the unjust society that alphas have created.

    “By becoming the Prince’s omega, you will one day hold the position next to the most powerful man in all of France.”
    “I will be nothing more than his personal breeder and you know it!"
    “Enjolras!” cried his mother, outraged.
    Enjolras raised his chin, unrepentant. “To turn one’s head away from ugliness does not make it disappear. I will not mince my words simply to spare your sensibilities - nor anyone else’s for that matter. If you wish to support these hideous customs, do not flinch from hearing them spoken aloud!”

    Summary

    "Because each fulfilled the other, in a way. The Doctor, with her need of a company and a hand to hold, and Grantaire, who secretly wished to escape his life. For them to meet was to find, and in the moment they first looked into each others eyes, fourteen years ago, they joined. They were together now. The Doctor and Grantaire. Probably the most unusual pair one could ever imagine, but that was exactly what would make them perfect as a team."

    The Doctor and Grantaire, traveling together through space and time.

    Summary

    This was written right after Iron Man 2, but alternate universe so still canon? This was for the schmoop_bingo card. Captain America wasn't out yet so expect to run into some comics characters, but only in passing.

    First Anniversary: It's the first anniversary of Stephanie's recovery from the ice. The Museum of New York City holds an exhibit and a party in her honor.

    Shower Together: There was no need for Stephanie to use the communal showers attached to the gym.

    Deja Vu: Its times like these that Stephanie heartily agrees with Natasha's distaste for magic.

    Bubble Bath: She hears Natasha's voice echo down the hall and cringes.

    Spooning: Stephanie is often the first one awake in the mornings.

    Summary

    Written shortly after Iron Man 2, but still could fit in?

    For the "Dash of Pepper" challenge by cincoflex who is totally awesome.

    Pepper finds out about an order that Tony has made behind her back -- and isn't happy with what's inside. At least it's not a flesh doll -- poor James.

    At the end the second picture is the backpage from one of the old 60s Iron Man comics, I kid you not. I don't even know where to start honestly. At least we're making progress? Slow slow progress. I add it because it's exactly what Pepper's imagining in the context of the story.

    Summary

    "Poor lad! A big man-creature like him, needing protection! Oh, I can't turn my back on him. Tell him I'll do it. A sacrifice for friendship - what's more appropriate at Midwinter?

     

    In her defense, Buri had no idea how bad Raoul's family could really be.

    Summary

    He thinks about it sometimes, about making it official. God knows enough people talk about the two of ‘em, living together like they do. They give them looks sometimes, say disapproving little things about what Stella’s ma would’ve thought about her going around with a fella like him, without even having a ring to show for it.
