    Summary

    Ivory Rose should've known she wasn't going to have a simple life. With SoulMarks of World War Two heroes and 'gifts' of the unnatural sort, she should've known better than to think her self ordinary. Soon though, she's drawn into a world of heroes and villains, of truth and lies, and of love and hate. Drawn into a world where what she thinks is real, is far from the truth.

    Summary

    They've touched so often and intimately, that neither knew how much they craved it. Neither understood what it meant to them, until they couldn't touch any longer.

    Summary

    After Bucky was released from the hospital, it only took him a couple of weeks to give up on himself. Difficult to believe in any kind of future when the simple act of staying alive was almost too big an effort.

    Out the frosted window, across the street, there was a tiny homeless guy burrowing under an awning.

    Summary

    Once, back in Kirkwall, Cullen had an arrangement with a member of the city guard that satisfied his needs. But time changed all things, and he despaired of ever finding a similar arrangement again - that was, until he met The Iron Bull. Problem being that Bull seemed to care far more about sorting out the nitty-gritty of such an arrangement than Cullen ever has.

    Summary

    Luke has to deal with Rey's arrival. He knows he is supposed to teach her, but he has spent decades guilt ridden for his failure with Ben, and at first he finds it difficult to take the mantel of a mentor for this miracle-child.

    The original prompt was
    Rey and Kylo Ren have some major UST going on. Normally Luke wouldn't care, but more and more he finds himself jealous of the bond Rey shares with his nephew (and not with him). It doesn't do for Jedis (especially Jedis of a certain age, he thinks) to feel envy, but a small voice in the back of his head wishes it were him she thought about.

    Summary

    She had cut off the comfort of touch when she was small. It was preservation to hate the feeling, she told herself, a way to keep a weakness at bay. Then why did she feel hungry to graze his skin, to touch him the way a starving animal prepared for a feast?

    Summary

    Rey absolutely plans to tell someone that Kylo Ren is camping out in the back of her head – really, she does. It’s just…kind of nice, having someone else’s thoughts to sink into when she’s feeling lonely.

    A response to Tragically Humorous’ prompt:
    Everyone keeps doing the force bond plot with Kylo and Rey where an obsessed Kylo uses the bond to annoy/toy with Rey. I’d like to see the reverse where Rey is the one obsessed with Kylo and he is resistant.

    Summary

    A moment in time - Steve reaches for Bucky, but immediately stops when he sees the instantaneous reaction.

    This plot bunny is 110% the fault of me watching CATWS yesterday. This one occurs at some undetermined time post-CATWS. Steve’s found Bucky. Bucky remembers him, but he’s still on very shaky ground when it comes to his recovery and re-integration into the world.

    Summary

    Dean doesn't know what he expects when he picks up a homeless teenager and takes him home during the heaviest storm of the winter, but this isn't it. Castiel is quiet, shy, and refuses to let Dean touch him, but still somehow manages to worm his way into his heart in the short weeks they spend together. It doesn't take long for Castiel to become an intrinsic part of his life and happiness, and by the time Castiel has lived with him for most of the winter, Dean isn't sure he'll ever be able to let go. Of course, Cas's refusal to talk about his past and his seeming fear of even the most casual touches drives a wedge between them, and Dean may be forced to admit that letting Castiel go might be the only way to leave them both intact.

    Summary

    It's not a meet-cute if the guy in question mistakenly thinks he's hired you to act in his rape fantasy. And it's definitely not a love story when said guy kidnaps you and tries to make you his sex slave.

    Jared can't help his feelings for Jensen, the hitman who abducted him and is missing in action. Now a hostage of Jensen's mobster family, Jared tries to walk a fine line, not willing to piss off Jensen's father and sister, but pretty sure that whatever he does, it is not going to go well for him.

    Jared's got the absolute worst luck.

    Summary

    The stranger paused, allowing him a last glance. “Please… Sam…?” he breathed, and Sam stepped outside. “Master…?”

    Sam sighed wistfully, coming down and gently cupping his slave’s face with two, warm, heavy hands. “Dean, I want you to go with him, okay?” he said, “He’s gonna be your new master.”

    Dean’s eyes watered hard, tears threatening their escape any second, now. “But… You said I was yo-urs.” he managed, voice breaking from the pressure.

    “And now, you’re his. Don’t misunderstand, Dean… you’ve been beautiful and good, but it’s time for you to go.”

    Summary

    And Kentarou certainly isn't going to apologize for yelling at the first-years and glaring at customers.

    Or, at least he's not going to yet. Shigeru has a way of making him plenty sorry, and even if it's just a pair of ties holding his hands behind his back, he's not making any attempt at getting away.

    Maybe he's a glutton for punishment.

    Summary

    There was a gift.


    There was a curse. 

    There is a power in the house of Hale, given to the firstborn son of every generation - the ability to turn everything he touches to gold. Though the original intent of the power was thought of as a gift, in reality, it is a dreaded curse that causes the bearer a life of fear, isolation, and danger.

    Thus, Prince Derek is born.

    ---

    [Excerpt from Chapter 22]

    He didn’t think much of his hands, or any part of his body, really - but Stiles gaze had lingered enough to make Derek wonder what Stiles’ thought. Now, Stiles honey eyes were fixated on Derek’s hands, running over them like they were something precious rather than tools of death.

    “Hmm.”

    “What.”

    “Nothing, I just - I thought they wouldn’t look like normal hands.”

    “Why.”

    “Because they’re magic,” Stiles said, looking up to meet Derek’s eyes.

    “They’re not magic, they’re cursed,” Derek said, tucking his hands back into the sheet.

    Summary

    ...being green.

    Tony and Clint decide to show Bruce that the Hulk isn't all bad, but they soon realise that Hulk needs friends of his own.

    This story is neither action nor romance; it is built up from moments in the life of the Avengers as they become teammates, friends, and family.

    I'm new to writing these characters, so apologies if what I write doesn't match up to how you imagine them. And although I have some idea where I'm going with this, that is subject to change. This story is based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe up to the end of The Avengers, which is the movie I'm most familiar with. I'm probably not going to include anything from Iron Man 3, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, or Agents of Shield, and I'm more or less ignoring the comics.

    Please keep in mind that, while I'm not focusing on mental health problems, Avengers Tower is a hot-bed of PTSD, guilt, isolation, and impulsive behaviours which may or may not count as self-destructive, and Bruce in particular has been suicidally depressed in the past. I'll try to include trigger warnings if anything particularly bad comes up, but be careful with yourselves.

    Summary

    In the days following the opening night of Supernatural: The Musical, Cas finds Dean, Dean finds himself, and Sam... Well, Sam finds fanfiction. No case can ever be straight-forward with Team Free Will involved, however, so as Dean and Cas finally make their way across the board toward each other, Sam yearns to unravel the sinister thread that is plotting their lives.

    "To those behind the curtain, please, no attention pay.
    You cannot know who pulls the strings or how they get their way.
    For there's a Game of Fic afoot, and canon's on the line.
    One can either ship to live or, by writing, die."

    ...But when has a Winchester ever left well-enough alone?
