    Summary

    When lab monkey and definite not superhero Darcy Lewis does something incredibly brave and monumentally stupid, she saves the Avengers and the planet from all out destruction at the hands of Thanos.

    Picking up the pieces afterward is a lot less fun than she imagined. After an experiment to see the full extent of her new abilities, she finds her fate inexplicably tied to Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers.

    Thrown in with the Avengers, she has to figure out where she fits in while navigating the stormy seas of being tied to two of the broodiest soldiers who have ever brooded.

    Stubborn Steve Rogers! Mopey and Angry Bucky Barnes! Badass Powered Darcy Lewis! Cool Older Brother Tony Stark! Multiple mentions of David Bowie! This one's got it all!

    Summary

    "It was a photograph. It had been recently viewed and therefore not yet hidden away in Sherlock’s photo gallery, and the photograph’s subject lying across the very bed he sat upon glowed hot in his hand, as if come to life. The person had been caught wrestling out of a flurry of bedclothes, arms blurred, eyes crinkled in amusement and pale skin lit by the close proximity of a bleaching flash. John had to remind himself to breathe as he stared. It was the smile; the genuine, trusting, openness that radiated humour, playfulness and utter joy at being photographed; it was a smile he had never seen before on this face of this person, lying half-naked, half sheet-wrapped as he tried to retrieve the phone from the person taking the picture."
    The one where John finds Sherlock's phone and wishes he hadn't.

    Summary

    Disclaimer: I don’t own anything from the Avengers, or Marvel Comics. This is for amusement purposes only. Hope you all enjoy.
    Summary: Addison Clarke never imagined working in same building that the Avengers lived in, but thanks to a desperate plea from her best friend, Darcy Lewis, she gets roped into the quirky world of superheroes and science wrangling. But Addison is not without her secrets, and the ones she holds tight could threaten to tear the Avengers’ world apart.
    Timeline: Set seven months after the Avengers
    Set four months after Thor: Dark World
    Set before Captain America: Winter Soldier
    I’m not sure about the canon timeline of these movies right off the top of my head, but this is the timeline for the story. Major differences are Thor returned to earth to be with Jane after the loss of his mother and supposed loss of his brother. Any other changes will be explained as the story goes.

    Summary

    When Sakura gets sent to the past by her Hokage to stop the world from ending, she doesn't know if she wants to bash Naruto's skull in for putting her in this position or kiss him for giving her the chance to save everyone.

    Regardless, she's got some assholes in need of getting their teeth punched out. (And no one said she had to do it alone either.)

    Summary

    Thor is distraught by Loki's sacrifice on the Dark World. He never in a million years would have thought it would happen. He is determined to fix it somehow. He is forbidden from bringing him back... but Odin didn't say Thor couldn't stop it from happening at all. This time, armed with knowledge of how much his little brother bottled everything inside, Thor was going to ensure mistakes weren't repeated.

     

    A Time Travel Fix-it where Loki really did die and Thor goes back to save his brother before he needs saving. A strange hybrid of marvel bits and actual Norse mythos all crammed into angsty wrapping.

    Summary

    Jane, this journal is stupid. Why are you writing about how we first met? It’s horrifically romantic and you didn’t focus on any of the facts!

    I knew you wouldn’t be able to keep your nose out of this. Sherlock, I wanted to write it down so I could look back over it later. So when we’re old ladies, waving our walking sticks at young kids I won’t forget.

    Summary

    Ariel would look back, almost a hundred years back, look back to her past and trace her sins and mistakes to that long-ago moment, to that desire to know more, to ask for more than what she was given. Ariel would look back with a thousand words that crowded her tongueless mouth, as the world turned underneath her bleeding feet and wonder to herself, was it truly worth it - all of it - to know what I know now?

    ***

    A radical reinterpretation, deconstruction, and expansion on Hans Christian Andersen's and Disney's The Little Mermaid.

    Summary

    It all starts with a red book...

    Bucky's free from HYDRA's trigger words but not from what they made him do. When Natasha finds out where the book is and gets it back for Bucky, his past comes back with a vengeance.

    ... then there's a diary...

    Steve thinks that his life is finally on the right track. The Accords have been renegotiated and the Avengers can now intervene again in case a country needs them and asks them to. He's mending his relationship with Tony. His best friend keeps getting better. But when Steve gets his hands on Bucky's diary, he realizes that he's been lying to himself and things are far from okay.

    ... then comes a sketchbook.

    Darcy is lost. Now that Thor and Jane broke up, the astrophysicist wants a fresh start, which means bye bye Darcy. With no job and no possibility to go back to a normal civilian life, Darcy finds herself at an impasse. A chance for her that the Avengers seem to have made an habit of collecting strays. Now if only they could help her find her life a purpose, too, that'd be great...

    (Or how lost books that are found can result in great things)

    Summary

    'Sherlock scowled, “This is the thanks I receive for coming to fetch you.”

    “I never asked you to come get me!” Violet shouted as he slammed the bedroom door...'

    ~*~*~

    Hello and thank you for waiting so patiently for Part 4!

    Slight change in format; I've made the chapters shorter, but that means there are more chapters. The plan is to post once a week until this fic is out of WIP hell. Then I'll post twice a week (real life allowing...)

    There is another fandom in this fic that's not tagged because of spoilers.

    Huge thanks and love to my beta cadoganwest, who betas with a migraine. You don't get much more BAMF than that. XOXO.

    SO - let's start this story off with a trigger warning for violence and a promise of smut!

    Thank you for sticking with me and this story for so long and all the comments, kudos, bookmarks and subscriptions :^)

    Summary

    Excerpt 1: “The Revolution succeeded; it crumbled afterwards only because those whose lives got revolutionized did not follow up on the revolutionary success,” said the Bride, her words setting their closed hearts aflame. “This time, will you help us help you?”

    Excerpt 2: “Just helping the boys return to their old selves is not enough. Their schooling and future prospects will still be hindered whenever their being children of terrorists comes to light. Only by changing your world –- your society -- into one where criminals’ relatives are no longer assigned collective guilt can you truly save your brothers. This is the kind of revolution you must bring about: your Survival Strategy.”

    Summary

    For obvious reasons, I picked up a tiny Loki action figure from Thor a couple years ago; in January 2014, I came across a tiny Thor to keep him company. I immediately took a couple stupid pictures of them and then I just...kept doing that, with increasingly elaborate captions and situations, because I really enjoy my stupid pictures and other people have been enjoying them too. I picked up a couple more Lokis and some other MCU action figures too, and sometimes completely unrelated action figures join in (I add tags as they become relevant). The first 60ish chapters are reposts of existing pictures; now that I've got all of those up, I'm just updating when I actually post new photos. Suggestions/ideas are always welcome!

What she wasn't expecting was Dudley Dursley having magic and how cruel his parents are being to him as well.
