    Summary

    Bitty is in Annie’s, bent over his textbooks and wondering, not for the first time, why he decided to take French as a language (oh yes, it’s because so many old recipes are written in French, he’s going abroad there to study food history, can’t wait for the summer; half of fall and then winter semester until he goes, but that doesn’t help him now does it) , when he hears someone clear their throat.

    “Excuse me, is this seat taken?”

    Oh boy.

    Eric doesn’t even bother lifting up his head. “Sorry, not a girl and not interested.”

    Summary

    “Dickey,” Coach rumbles, appearing in the doorway with a frown pulling the corners of his mustache down. “You better come quick. Where’s your phone?”

    Bitty’s hands are still wet as he stands in his parents’ den and watches his husband’s career come to a screeching halt.

    Summary

    The words on his arm were crisp and clear, written in a rushed-looking scrawl like someone had taken a purple marker to Phil’s skin.

    So I take it that second honeymoon isn’t working out the way you’d hoped?

    Phil’s legs went out from under him and he sat down with a painful thud, all brain processes diverted to the task of staring at his arm and wondering—and wondering—

    Phil was waiting, was the thing. Not for sex—definitely not for that—but for romance, for a relationship. He knew that not every soulbond was sexual or romantic in nature, but most were, and he wanted that, wanted the kind of marriage his parents had, bound together in every possible way.
    And he was going to meet his soulmate on his second honeymoon?

    Summary

    "Tell me, Captain Rogers. How do you feel about unicorns?" 

    With his career in the Guard cut short, Steve had only one option: join the Unicorn Wardens. The Wardens enforced the hunting laws, had done for a hundred years, ever since the country had nearly torn itself apart over the discovery that unicorns—beloved creatures, conduits to the gods above—could be turned into magical Devices more powerful than anything a mage could produce.

    Unicorns could only be hunted in designated preserves. As a Warden, Steve's job was to enforce that. Unicorns couldn't be hunted without a virgin, and that wasn't Steve's problem, but virgins who'd work for hunters were hard to find, so it wasn't a surprise when Hydra lost theirs and had to scrabble after another. What was a surprise was Bucky, the man they found to be their new virgin.

    Steve started spending time with Bucky, talking to him on the hunts, and the more time they spent together, the more Bucky began opening up to him. Which was great, except the more Bucky opened up to him, the more Steve wanted to be with him.

    Maybe starting to fall for Bucky wasn't the smartest thing he'd ever done, but Steve was having trouble regretting it.

    Summary

    By comparison, being roommates with James Buchanan Barnes, formerly the Winter Soldier, has been a vast improvement. Notwithstanding the part where people openly take pictures of Barnes (and consequently Peter) on campus. Or random people poking Peter in the back during lectures to hiss, are you really the Winter Soldier’s roommate at him. Or remnant HYDRA operatives kidnapping Peter in order to lure the Winter Soldier out (which, really, is too many levels of stupid for Peter to handle).

    "You know you're not supposed to call him the Winter Soldier any more, right?" Peter says, while they handcuff him to a pipe. A pipe. "Also this whole thing is kind of messing up my schedule. My two overdue papers won't exactly write themselves."
