    Summary

    Sel•kie [Sil-kee] noun, Scot.

    1. A mythical creature that resembles a seal in the water but assumes human form on land.

    When Eren was younger, he would hear stories about creatures called selkies. He grew up with the determination to sail the sea and find one someday.
    When his dad would leave every few days over the course of a year, Eren didn’t think much of it.
    That was over five years ago, and now Eren is left with a key his dad gave to him when he was ten-years-old, before he left on a boat trip and never came back.

    Summary

    I am not the first to make a mistake, and I doubt so long as my species perseveres, I should not be the last. We are all told the same stories, shown the same examples. We all differ in our choices, though, and that remains our curse. Humanity considers us cursed. They consider not the irony. It is hard when they, the most beautiful things, can be so terrible and curse us in return.

    As a selkie, Commodore James Norrington belongs to a world of legendary creatures. Like all of these creatures, he must not fall in love with a mortal - to do so would be to sacrifice his heart in a literal sense, and become the monster he dreads to be. Until, one day while swimming, he spies a mysterious yet familiar shape in the water. The creature is most definitely not human, and for the first time in a long time, Norrington begins to hope.

    Summary

    Just collecting all the snippets from tumblr and LJ and giving them a home.

    *new as of 5/4* 90- Steve/Bucky: Bucky doesn’t just learn to cook. Bucky, once able (once finally able, at last, after reasons physical and mental that tear up Steve’s heart to comprehend) to eat solid food again, makes up for years of taste-deprivation with a vengeance.
    89- Steve/Bucky: based on that video of baby Sebastian Stan in the subway; happy endings, couch-cuddles, pancakes
    88- James/Michael: James might have a thing for Harry Potter...
    87- Steve/Bucky: Bucky touches more, these days: fluffy sofa-pillows, a stray leaf caught in a bush along their running route, the cocoa-heated ceramic of a mug, Steve’s hand or cheek or bare skin spread out across beckoning midnight sheets. Bucky touches more and smiles more.
    86- Steve/Bucky: looking good, and a kiss
    85- Chris/Sebastian, Avengers-themed handcuffs
    84- Steve/Bucky, model and fashion designer AU
    83- Chris/Sebastian, Academy Award afterparties and surprises
    82- James/Michael, hide-and-seek; or, actually, a game of Sardines

    Summary

    John has grown up hearing tales about the ocean, and what lurks just beneath its surface. As a child, he had even dared to believe them. Yet that was a long time ago, and John's belief in faerie tales have long since faded since he joined the war. Real life has gotten in the way, and slowly, the memories of searching for tide-pools on the beach are replaced with his sister's alcoholism, war wounds, and his parent's constant fighting. However, when John Watson has to make a trip back to his Gradmother's cottage and return to the edge of the sea, he finds more than just the ocean awaiting for his return....

    With a promise long forgotten, a rather demanding and compelling creature appears and demands its payment in full.
    And John Watson finds he might not be able to resist its song after all....

    They found him when he was still small, washed up on a rocky beach on the far end of Vancouver Island. Jenny had been the one to stumble across him, unconscious and still bleeding sluggishly from a gash in his leg; Jordie had found his pelt tangled up in a log a handful of metres away.

    They were island folk. They knew what that meant.

    Summary

    The young man is standing with an arm casually thrown up to lean against the door frame, displaying his bare torso to advantage, his powerful swimmer's shoulders and lean body pale with moonlight. His cocky grin, however, is fading quickly into a look of shock and confusion. Other than a pelt shaped into a sloppy kilt, his legs are bare too, despite the chill winds coming in off the ocean.

    "You're not a girl," he says in a gently lilting accent that's like an odd blend of all the coastal voices Derek's ever heard, squinting at Derek like his eyes might somehow be deceiving him.

    Unlikely, given his dark beard and broad, well-muscled shoulders, let alone what he's got under his kilt.
