    Summary

    When their attempts to recreate the super soldier serum failed, Hydra started trying to breed Captain America clones from his genetic samples. Unfortunately, the serum's effects aren't passed down genetically, so instead of an army of tiny Captain Americas, they get a bunch of tow-headed, asthmatic, allergic, immuno-compromised little Steves.

    And then the Winter Soldier stumbles across Hydra's failed experiment...

    [This is the original, gen version of the story, which was posted as a WIP. The edited Steve/Bucky version can be found here.]

    Summary

    In his 2009 book on Captain America comic books, war photography, and American propaganda, Everett claims: “There is nothing to suggest that either the graphic novels issued during the war or the photographs taken during Rogers’ stay with the Howling Commandos can serve as a basis for a queer reading of Rogers and Barnes’ relationship. But even more importantly, there is nothing to suggest that such a relationship ever existed in the first place, and as such, those queer readings are not only misguided, but also libelous” (197).

    [from: Lynn E. Anderson, Captain America: Behind the Mask. Steve Rogers and the Contemporary Hero Narrative (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), p. 242.]

    In the aftermath of Steve's return to the world of the living and the battle of New York, the academia and the Internet react.

    Summary

    Looking at the moon, Miyuki says, "Will you do something for me?"

    "Yes." Chris doesn't ask what it is, he doesn't take time to think about it; he just says yes right away.

    There's something breathtaking about the way Chris says that yes. It makes Miyuki look at him, even though he'd intended to keep looking up when he told Chris what he wants from him tonight.

    Summary

    Thor takes a good look at Loki once he has hauled him back onto the quinjet, and realizes that there is something odd about Loki's eyes. Thor has grown and changed much in the last year, and no longer takes anything for granted. So he starts asking questions. It doesn't take long to figure out that Loki is not acting of his own free will.

    Tony Stark knows what it is to be forced to do as an enemy commands. Steve Rogers has seen the atrocities manipulative madmen are willing to commit. Clint, Logan, Bruce and Natasha have been subjected to said madmen. They all know what it is to lose themselves, and to seek redemption.

    Together, this band of broken heroes draws a line in the sand. They will not tolerate any tyrant, foreign or domestic. That includes Nick Fury and the WSC, who have used everyone on the team for their own aims. It includes Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross, who has hunted Bruce against all reason. It includes Odin, who treats his sons like commodities. And it includes Thanos, who has delusions of conquering Earth.

    Along the way, they learn to trust each other. They learn to help each other. They become a family.

    Summary

    AU reboot of the entire SAO storyline, beginning from the premise that Kayaba Akihiko was obsessed with magic and Norse Mythology rather than swords and pure melee. As a result, he created the Death Game of Alfheim Online rather than the floating castle of Aincrad—a world in which player-killing is not a crime, and the nine player races are in competition with each other to reach the top of the World Tree. Multi-POV epic following the stories of multiple canon characters throughout the game.

    Delightful set of stories, very convincing takes on how various characters might approach relationships (esp wherein Kagami very quietly has more emotional intelligence than all the Miracles combined). <3

    Short stories from the Toasterverse, because the author gets panicky writing long form stories built around plot and has to finish something in order to function.

    Phil has problems with these people. So does the Author.

    Summary

    Stiles is ten when he saves the Hales from their burning home and Derek from a wolfsbane bullet, and this establishes a pattern that seem to continue indefinitely.

    "Then he's facing a burning home, and he wraps the hood of his sweatshirt around his mouth before he pushes the door open and steps inside. There's Mr. Hale asleep - he hopes asleep - on the couch, next to - Stiles thinks that's his brother but there are so many Hales, who can keep track. He rushes over and starts shaking him, can see the rise and fall of the man's chest so he knows he's alive, but he's not waking up.
    He shoves away his hood so he can shout, "Mr. Hale! You have to get up, there's a fire! Mr. Hale, get up!" Nothing, he's not even twitching, both of them taking in deep even breaths like they're having the most peaceful of rests, and Stiles is going to cry. "Wake up, wake up, wake up!"
    There's a moment, where all Stiles can hear is the blood rushing in his ears and not the roar of the flames or the creak of wood, then with a violent, silent pop it's all back and both of the men are gasping awake, eyes open and jumping to their feet. "

    Summary

    “So, I'm Stiles.” he smiled warmly once he had put his unannounced patient down on the exam table. “I will poke and prod you a little bit to check for internal injuries, those that I can’t see because they're inside you, and some of it might hurt but it will pass, I promise. I will tell you everything I'm about to do and why I'm doing it so just stay calm and this will go like a breeze, okay?”

    Now, Stiles wasn’t stupid in any way, shape or form, he knew a were when he saw one… although he had obviously never seen a werecat before, and definitely not one as young as this one.

    Summary

    Asuna was a lead clearer in SAO, known as 'the Flash' for her speed and grace. She rose to a leadership position in the premiere guild of that Game, risking her life to protect others. She was the antithesis of the damsel of distress. That she more or less became one in the first ALO arc was just plain fury-inducing.

    Here are five antidotes to the 'lone hero syndrome' that the arc seems to have fallen prey to.

    Summary

    For my own prompt at Norsekink:
    [Gen] Loki and Odin, "No you can't have his head" H/C
    I just found a version of the lip-sewing story in which the dwarf demands Loki's head AND ODIN REFUSES. Comes right out and says, "No, that's crazy, ask for something else."

    The dwarf then tries to insist and kick up a fuss, and that is when Loki uses his loophole, and also when, to placate the dwarf, the Aesir agree to the lip-sewing.

    I'd like to see this, and then later Odin going to Loki with his godly manicure scissors and cutting the stitches loose while giving Loki six kinds of worried-dad hell along the lines of "you're going to be the death of me, don't ever do anything like that again, and by the way thank you for the wonderful spear."
