    Summary

    Harold, of course, wasn’t one for taking pictures of himself. However, he had discovered an unexpected blind spot in the Machine’s range of vision, in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It was a curious place for the Machine not to have a visual, and apparently it knew it, and to Harold’s chagrin refused to acknowledge that Harold had entered the building at all.

    “You seem distressed, my angel. Are you not pleased with the match?

The young man has kept you in mind all these years -- despite our circumstances.”

    Emma Swan is a detective for Boston P.D., happily married to her best friend, Hua Mulan, for almost two years. Regina Mills has been married to Marian Álvarez for close to a year.

    They meet. Sparks fly. Tropes abound.

    Written for the ‘Forbidden Love’ prompt as part of Swan Queen Week.

    Summary

    In this world, there were babies born with a multitude of eye colors, not just your standard blue, grey, brown, and green. There were pinks and purples, fuschias and sapphires, bright oranges, and softened teals. A person’s eyes could be any color you could imagine, and there were even more variations once they were bonded, or found their soulmate…

    Summary

    There’s not a person who walks the halls of Hogwarts who doesn’t know Steve Rogers: the boy with the righteous streak, hot temper, and massive crush on the Romanian Longhorns’ star Chaser, Bucky Barnes. But Bucky exists to Steve only on the front page of The Daily Prophet. He has long since resigned himself to admiring from afar, catching games when he can or otherwise following Barnes’s crusade against injustice through printed page.

    Until the man himself walks into the Great Hall on the first night of their Seventh Year.

    Bucky’s life outside of the spotlight is hardly worthy of a footnote, never mind a headline, but no one wants to read about Bucky Barnes being found face-down and fast asleep between the shelves of Durmstrang’s impressive library. Between his studies and the Quidditch Finals looming around the corner, the last thing Bucky needs is something like the Tri-Wizard Tournament. He knows Headmaster Pierce is expecting him to volunteer, but all Bucky really wants is to pass his N.E.W.T.S. and maybe twist The Minister’s arm into passing the bill about guaranteed pay for House Elves.

    That is until he spots Merlin’s gift to man sitting at the Gryffindor table.

    Then things get complicated.

    Summary

    "No, Gaila. I am not, absolutely not going to walk into Commander Spock’s office and suggest that we pretend to date for an entire summer. I mean, we… I… he’s not… I couldn’t even spend that much time with him, nor would I want to. He’s so… he’s just really… I have professional mores, Gaila. Standards of conduct that this… just, no. No. No, thank you for the idea, but no."

    Summary

    Lily will not stand for her prodigal son's refusal to fulfill his newfound duties, and demands that action be taken to remedy this. The response she receives instead sends her reeling.


    Fair warning: This is Wrong-Boy-Who-Lived!Lily, whose fame has utterly gone to her head. Her personality may be argued to have very little to do with her canon self.

    Events of the backstory have also altered Petunia's personality. If you're expecting the harridan from canon, you will be disappointed. Part of the point of this fic is the changes in the personalities of the Evans sisters. Pointing out that they are highly "out-of-character" by canon standards is about as relevant as pointing out that Harry doesn't actually have a twin brother.

    Summary

    Avengers Coffee Shop AU - sort of, set post-Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier, Iron Man 3, and Thor 2: Dark World.

    Sam finds a little hole-in-the-wall cafe one particularly bad day and it becomes his preferred place to get coffee and a smile from the purple-wearing barrista to brighten his day. As it turns out, this cafe isn't frequented by the regular coffee-shop types, but rather the strangest people you'd imagine, including mutant teenagers, superheros, schizophrenic mercs, and even the occasional villain on their day off.

    Summary

    Natasha isn’t sure how it happened, but somehow she’s found herself sitting on the couch with Jane Foster, watching Beauty and the Beast. The next thing she knows, she’s listening to Jane ramble on about princesses, and true love, and how this could be the answer to the Avengers’ annoying, be-horned, god-shaped problem: Find Loki a princess.

    Then Thor informs them that his brother already has one.

    Natasha can work with this.

     

    Or, the history of Loki's terribly misguided attempts at love and friendship. It is an account that is both heartbreaking and cringe-worthy. That he manages to be successful anyway and win over the unlikeliest of people is nothing short of miraculous. Especially when it's all thanks to his spiteful, cantankerous wife. Features both slash and het, angst and humor, and plenty of Norse mythology.
