    Summary

    Lieutenant Steve Rogers has done all the right things. Graduated West Point at the top of his class. Earned a coveted spot as an infantry officer. Found the woman of his dreams. Everything is going exactly as planned. That is, until he accepts a platoon leader position for a unit deploying to Iraq, where he’s reunited with the ex-boyfriend he’d rather forget but never could.

    ———

    Sergeant First Class Barnes thinks he knows war. He lives in a wild cycle of military training, deployments, sex, drinking, and pining for his former best friend and ex-boyfriend, Steve Rogers. But when Lieutenant Rogers is assigned as his platoon leader during Operation Iraqi Freedom, Sergeant Barnes realizes that he doesn't know the first thing about what it means to truly fight for something.

    ———

    "There's not gonna be any weird shit between you and Rogers, is there? I don’t know what happened between you two and don’t really care, but I definitely don't need any weird shit on this deployment," Captain Barton says.

    "No, Sir. No weird shit," Bucky says.

    "Good, 'cause things are gonna get pretty fuckin' real once we get to Baghdad."

    One corner of Bucky’s mouth curves upward. "Don't I know it."

    Summary

    Soundwave's Lieutenant, an often-overlooked mech (Designation: Switchshade) has always had a weak spark. Killing the helpless, those who can't fight back, is abhorrent to him, even when it is on his lord's orders. When he sees Commander Starscream preparing to slay a red Autobot held helpless before him, Switchshade is moved to intercede. His functioning will never be the same.

    Summary

    It seems like everyone in the extended family that surrounds Phoenix Wright and Miles Edgeworth is getting their happy ending, or moving on to something new and bright - except for Klavier and Simon. They just seem to be stuck in limbo, with neither of them moving on from the events of the past eight years. That's not all they have in common, they both have an imprisoned elder sibling they visit on the same day of the week. Starting at awkward encounters during these visits, they gravitate towards each other during the year-long build up to the Wright-Edgeworth wedding. Maybe, with help from each other and the family, they'll feel more alive by the time the rings are exchanged.

    Summary

    Gravity Falls, once a childhood haven for Dipper Pines, has become marred by filth and blood. With severed familial ties in his grasp and the weight of a corpse on his back, the only thing holding him above the tide is the demon that destroyed his life, but gave him something new and fragile in return.

    Bound by flesh and forever barred from omniscience, Bill is left to flounder in uncertainty as he struggles to come to terms with his own limitations. Feeling alienated by his humanity even as he is consumed by it, his only choice is to rely on the human that had warped him so drastically.

    Tethered by strings of twisted morality and growing affection, they travel to every corner of the world to peel back grimy secrets, some of which had escaped even the unfettered gaze of the All Seeing Eye.
     

    A continuation of Bright Eyes and Providence. Be sure to read those first!

    Summary

    "Bucky’s own body is eating away at itself in a vicious cycle of trying to find enough energy to heal and recover from the self-inflicted damage. It's like cutting wood from a tree, using that wood to keep the tree from collapsing, then not having the foresight to move out of the way during the inevitable fall.

    Steve’s trying to help, but just when he thinks he finds a solid surface, it’s all wood rot."

    -

    A multi-POV fic focused on the intricacies of trauma, trauma recovery, the struggle of helping someone who doesn't want to be helped, drugs as a source of self-medication, the surfacing of Bucky’s trauma into separate identities that hopefully does not insult or misrepresent those with Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID, previously known as Multiple Personality Disorder) or PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder), and the high-stress relationship between a caregiver and the loved one.

    *May 5th Update: Yeah... so I'm done with my important deadline in life! That does (truly) mean that I can get back to writing this fic. Yay! :D

    Summary

    Internet fame comes with its costs, but Mark thought he'd finally paid all his dues. When shipping becomes more than just a joke, he and Jack have to learn how much they can survive and how much they can recover.

    This is Mark's story.

    NOTE: This is not a prequel to Part 2, and Part 2 is not a sequel to this, it is simply a different POV. We recommend reading BOTH stories at the same time for maximum impact.

    Summary

    "Lance steps out of the healing pod with all the grace of someone who just spent seven days frozen in cryostasis, that is to say, he flops down as his legs refuse to cooperate and shrieks loudly as his face comes this close to hitting the ground before Keith’s arms catch him around the waist, slowing his descent. Overall, not a good way to end seven days of healing."

    (in which Lance needs to learn how to cope with what happened which is a lot easier when he can actually remember)

    Summary

    “But, Lance…” His voice trailed away as Hunk attempted to regain his composure, too many questions flooding his mind to ignore, “What happened? Why’s everyone in the pods?”

    Lance’s playful exuberance melted away and he stared blankly at Hunk.

    “You don’t remember the bomb?”


    Hunk awakens out of the medical pod to find everyone else still inside, and only Lance is there to take care of them all.
    He’s glad to be reunited with Lance, but as time goes on, Hunk realizes that things are not entirely what they seem…

    Summary

    Bruce regarded the void on the other side of the bed; the mattress was cold. He was left alone long ago and though Bruce had his back turned then, Clark could have sensed he wasn’t sleeping. But Clark didn’t. He felt the weight of so many things circling him: a smug, enigmatic Oliver Queen, a sneering Princess, a Clown freed from his box, an orphan boy who hated him, the feeling of a looming menace and a disabled Batman who struggled with his friends’ help to catch up with time.

    Bruce gazed at the stormy night outside his bedroom’s window and wondered how his life became a weird rabble of humans, superheroes and gods…
