    Summary

    Over eighty years have passed since the Disaster that ended civilization and covered the world in a permanent layer of snow and ice. Humanity survived, if only barely, and have since then managed to recover a little of what it once lost, building settlements and rediscovering technology and machines to help them in their struggle. Every settlement relies on technology for their survival and the Engineers are the ones tasked with maintaining and building it, but despite their importance the Engineers are a dying breed.

    Jake and his sister live under the constant threat of being kidnapped or enslaved for what they know and the skills they possess, so he has learned to be wary of strangers - Raiders in particular, who murder and steal without remorse. But all of that changes when he meets a Raider he can't quite find himself to hate. Cougar is different and causes a myriad of conflicting emotions that Jake would rather not feel to being with.

    But when it turns out that Cougar might be able to lead Jake to the key to humanity's continued survival he decides to embark on the biggest adventure of his life, trust issues be damned. It soon becomes obvious that it won't be an easy journey, for more than one reason.

    Summary

    When sixteen-year-old Jacob Jensen arrives in a Podunk town in central Texas, no one really knows what to make of him. He’s socially awkward, somehow manages to be shy even while being far too talkative until someone shuts him up, and he’s brilliant with technology and his schoolwork. Odd all the way around. But Jolene likes him, and then Cougar makes his move.

    Summary

    When Tony and Steve’s son from the future, Jake Jensen, arrives at Avenger’s Tower, the two of them are forced to confront some hard truths: Tony that he might not actually become a horrible father, and Steve that he might not be able to set aside his discomfort with sharing a child with another man. When they both get a second chance at a first try at fatherhood, it’s up to the two of them to learn from their own future's past.

    Summary

    Jensen's got love letters to Cougar in his bag but knows he'll never let anyone else see them. It's not that he wants to keep it a secret, he just knows that it might be best that way what with DADT, Cougar's Catholic values and the risk of getting a bullet between his eyes. Writing letters in secret is one of the few outlets Jensen has.

    But it's really just a matter of time before the truth comes out...

    Summary

    In the aftermath of that Incident, no one on the team's coping too well. Except Roque, who seems to be the only one holding things together. Jensen's got a theory on that. He'd tell Cougar, but Cougar ain't talking right now... and Jensen's fine. Really. He's... fine.

    Summary

    When people tell you to be wary not to pick up strays they usually refer to puppies and kittens, not gangly, hyperactive seventeen-year-olds with bright blue eyes and infectious smiles, but Carlos thinks that they should. The similarities are undeniable, after all, not only in terms of appearance and mannerism but also the way you get instantly and irrevocably attached.

    Jacob Jensen should come with a warning sign, simple as that. And possibly also a manual.
