    Summary

    Keith is returning from deployment overseas, officially released from duty in the military. However, his first stop back in the states isn’t the place he expected to be - the funeral of his military partner Miguel McClain.

    There he meets Lance, the younger brother of the fallen soldier, along with the other grieving members of the McClain family. Unsure of the next steps in his life and unable to separate his military and civilian life, Keith looks to the one place he can even consider home - the family Miguel loved and left behind.

    Using group therapy, meeting new people, and becoming closer with the McClain family, Keith tries to put his life back together and live past the tragedy of losing his best friend. In turn, he grows a bond with Lance and realizes that maybe Miguel was right along - the two seemed made for each other.

    Summary

    An accidental discovery leads Felicity Smoak to come face to face with Yao Fei Gulong. Deciding to take a chance on a man who proves with one conversation he can be trusted she signs on to work with Sagittarius International. A private security company that did so much more than act like hired mercenaries. She would soon come to find out they had a very real purpose that they kept very well hidden.

    After 4 years of working to leave her past behind her, Felicity finds herself surrounded by people who show her what she can no longer avoid- human interaction. One person in particular is the handsome Oliver Queen.

    Oliver has spent the last year and a half avoiding romantic entanglements. Choosing to focus on his work and their missions, the last thing he expected was developing feelings for the beautiful analyst that fell into his hands.

    Her mission is clear, but it soon becomes convoluted when she finally admits to feeling something for the brooding blue-eyed mercenary. He needs to keep her at arm's length, but everything in him pulls her closer. Can they come together, when everything is trying to pull them apart?

    Summary

    If you wanna feel like a rockstar, you call Bucky Barnes, owner of Shining Star Karaoke and DJ Services. Bucky has gained faithful followers for making people feel like the main event. When different men with the same Dorito physique pop up at his gigs all over NYC, he isn't sure if he’s just a magnet for gym bros or being pranked. Spoiler: The man in the uncanny disguises is on his own mission to sing any time, any way, and any song he wants without being judged as Steve Rogers or Captain America.

    Summary

    Sleeping rough in a big city was a shitty way to live, but Bucky knew it was better than he deserved after what he had done. What he had been asked to do and then did. He didn’t deserve the neatly-packaged leftovers from Wanda, the girl who lived in the apartment building he slept outside of, or the smokes she always shared with him. Most of all, he definitely didn’t deserve Steve, the completely fearless volunteer at St. Benedict’s, looking at Bucky the way he did. But when Wanda goes missing and the cops don’t seem to be doing anything about it, Bucky goes stumbling into the dark underbelly of the city to find her. He also happens to stumble right into Steve, who sticks his nose right where it shouldn’t go and insists on helping Bucky get to the bottom of Wanda’s disappearance. All they have to do is survive stirring up the largest criminal organization in the city and all of the unsavoury characters who come with it.

    Summary

    When the Statue of Liberty slides into view, the whole ship roars. It’s deafening. Bucky throws his fist in the air and yells along with everyone else. His heart is in his throat. The Statue of goddamn Liberty. Bucky wants to climb up her robe and kiss her sour green face.

    The cheers rise up again as they go by her, and then die back down; most of the guys are just happy to sit and smile and watch the city float lazily into focus. They know they’ve got days more of barracks and bunks and cheap train seats before they’ll get to see their families in Pittsburgh, or Columbus, or Chicago. But Bucky’s home, he can see Brooklyn, and he laughs and shades his eyes from the sun and feels crazy with happiness, and this has to be the slowest fucking boat in the world, but at least he has a good view while he dies of impatience.

    ------

    In 1945, Bucky comes home from the war.

    Summary

    Some of the twenty months between chapters 13 and 14 of Without A Cause.

    Since we know where Poe's going, I'm in no particular hurry to get him there. Just a leisurely, somewhat maudlin romp through the uptowns and downtowns of the galaxy.

    Summary

    May you be in Heaven before the Devil knows you’re dead.
    May these winds be always at your back.
    ‘Cause when we’re all just ghosts,
    and the madness overtakes us,
    we will look at the ashes
    and say, “People lived here.”

    When Steve meets the singer of Crimson Riot, on whom he may or may not be harboring a years long crush, and gets offered a job, Steve thinks it’s a dream come true. Getting paid to tour with his favorite band AND create art? It’ll just take some time to get used to the rockstar lifestyle. But as he gets to know James “Bucky” Barnes, and sees what’s underneath the drugs and the cocky attitude, he gives himself a new job: help Bucky before it’s too late.

    Done for the 2017 Stucky Big Bang.

    Summary

    By chance, Sam saved Lucifer.

    By chance, Sam stumbled into the coffee shop Lucifer owned with his brother.

    By chance, Sam grew to care for the man's daughter.

    By chance, Sam grew to care for him.

    ---------

    All Sam wants to do is get his master's degree. He moved back in with Bobby and Ellen, his former foster parents, to attend the University not too far away and to be closer to his brother. Then on his first day of classes, a crying toddler crashes into his legs, begging him to save her father who has collapsed next door.

    Falling in love hadn't orginally been part of the plan.

    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

    (Notice that this fic is on pause until I get my life together!!!)
    Bucky Barnes has issues. Mental health issues, and a whole lot of them, to be precise.
    Bucky is fucked up, and he knows that. His apartment looks like a dumping ground on most days, he can’t sleep through the night, sometimes he doesn’t shower for six days and doesn’t leave the house except to see his therapist once a week. Mostly, Bucky has no idea how the whole “talking about your problems” thing is supposed to help him, but sometimes his therapist has some really great ideas.
    Like getting a dog.
    Which is how Bucky meets Steve. Steve has blond hair and shoulders as broad as Bucky’s academic future if he wouldn’t suffer from depression and multiple mental disorders, and a waist as small as Bucky’s self-esteem. Steve also has a yellowish dog with floppy ears called Sunshine. And sunshine makes its way into Bucky’s life with a bounce in its step.
