    Summary

    Prompt: Imagine a post battle scene where the Avengers are exhausted, surrounded by reporters, and Tony trips over something and Bucky steadies him. Next day: 'Iron Man and the Winter Soldier's romance?!' all over the media, 'cause someone got a lucky shot of them with their faces close & it looks like they were about to kiss. (Optional additional complication: At this point, the public is still unsure whether Bucky should be made to pay for what he did under Hydra control.)

    Thanks to having a bad ass Iron Man suit, he’d actually experienced the sensation of plummeting back to Earth once or twice. This felt sort of like that, only while sitting on the edge of his bed, brain whirring and clicking like a failing hard drive as he attempted to pin down how the hell Pepper had figured it out.

    “What are you talking about?” he asked, but didn’t give her a chance to answer. “And what do you mean Bucky Barnes. What’s wrong with Bucky?”

    Summary

    Steve Rogers is a man of action, but in this brave new century, there's no action to be had. A man without a mission, all he has to linger on are the people he let down and the lives he failed to save, and he is so very alone. Nights eat at him and days pass in a blur, and Tony Stark is the only person who seems to notice just how badly the Captain is suffering.

    Summary

    What do you do when the Roman Empire you were raised to love consigns you to the sands of the arena? Antonius is a prince of the Dacians, captured in war and sold as a gladiator. He yearns for his freedom. Stephanos -- the last living centaur -- is his fellow slave and trainer. Centuries old, disillusioned by a Rome that has become a shadow of itself, Stephanos has all but given up on life... until he meets Antonius, and both of their lives are forever changed.

    Summary

    When Project Rebirth fails, leaving the super-soldier serum inert in his veins, Steve Rogers is forced to bid goodbye to his dream of defending his country -- at least, in the way he'd always envisioned it. But his prospects in that regard aren't entirely bleak: he takes a job as chronicler for Tony Stark, the former Marvels adventurer who now serves his country in his typical unorthodox style, hunting down mystical relics before the Nazis can find them. At Tony's side in the jungles of Peru, Steve discovers that the serum works after all -- but it works in ways he could never have imagined.

    Summary

    AU from midway through the film, looking at what might have happened if Azazel had (sensibly) teleported to Russia and Emma had (sensibly) gone recruiting baby mutants. In which Moira is badass, actions have consequences, and Charles and Erik manage to have some feelings when they're not racing around the country.

    Summary

    “Well hey, James Bond,” Steve says in greeting, and Tony flashes him a broad grin.

     
    Even while everyone's still reeling in Ultron's wake, Natasha is saddled with training the rookies (that bodes well for no one); Tony seems to be trying to fix the entire world (you can't compete with his guilt complex, so really, what did you expect); no one seems to know who's officially in charge (what else is new); Maria thinks she doesn't get paid enough for this (she doesn't); and Steve is really kind of oblivious, until he's not (even if he has to be whacked with a cluebat first).

    In other words, a normal day in the life of an Avenger. Probably. Maybe.

    Summary

    Where rumours of Harry's death have been greatly exaggerated, Merlin doesn't know if he's Arthur or Martha (and prefers to be neither), and every agent has his own justification for the dog test. Also, Harry is not dithering over his attraction to Eggsy (no matter what Merlin claims).

    Summary

    This is a monumentally bad idea, Eggsy realizes, in the fraction of a second between reaching out and tugging at Harry’s tie and seeing his eyes briefly widen before their lips meet.

    Or: snogging is a great distraction technique for hiding in plain sight from your enemies. It is decidedly not great for hiding your growing, uh, interest in your secret service colleague.

    After seeing Tony naked and tanned -- all over -- in a decontamination shower, Steve realizes he may be in trouble. Tony, meanwhile, is definitely in trouble over those tabloid pictures of him sunbathing nude. The solution is clearly a tropical island getaway.

    Summary

    For a man capable of disappearing so utterly that even the international intelligence community thought he was a myth, it didn't take them long to find the Winter Soldier.

    For a man who supposedly wanted to be found, the Winter Soldier fought like a wildcat when Steve and Sam finally cornered him.

    ###

    (Post-CA:TWS) Steve and Sam have found Bucky, but they're going to need some help to bring him back to himself. A story about friendship, love, and the family you choose. (One-sided Bucky/Steve in the past, eventual Bucky/Tony. Some other pairings if you squint really hard.)

    Summary

    Prompt: AU idea where Bucky and Tony meet in dreams occasionally and have done since Tony's parents died. Tony thinks it's just his subconscious trying to cope with the grief and Bucky doesn't remember any of it as the Winter Soldier, but then Steve brings him to the tower, and they recognize each other.

    It is December 19, 1991 and Tony Stark is sleeping. This is significant for several reasons.

    For a start, this is the first he’s slept since sometime early on December 16th. He’s gone without sleep for longer—both with and without the intervention of illegal stimulants—so it isn’t so much that as it is the fact that his parents haven’t been alive since December 17th.

    The thing is, when he’d agreed to go out clubbing on the night of the 16th—back when he still had parents—it hadn’t ever occurred to him that someone would show up at 5:43 p.m. on December 17th (he’s still wasted from the night before, sweating the drugs out of his system, stinking of sex, and liquor) to tell him his parents had stopped being alive.
