    Summary

    The horrors in the Winter Soldier file destroyed Steve's belief that anything of his best friend could have survived. Devastated, he turned his back on the search for the Soldier. Two years later, with new controls on superheroes about to be brought in, he's face to face with the man in Bucky's body again.

    The Winter Soldier knew he wasn't Bucky Barnes. He also knew his taste of freedom couldn't last.  He hadn't expected to find himself on the run again with a group of former Avengers who have refused to accept the new laws, but with a HYDRA trail to follow they have a common cause.

      It’s smooth, when it happens. There’s just a brief burst of alarm, cut off, and then the hatch at one end slides open, and one of the sleekest looking vehicles even the Soldier has ever seen comes through it, with Iron Man mounted on the front like some kind of mascot. He has to give the man credit for style.

    Summary

    "EVERYONE SHOULD BE ABLE TO SEE IN EVERYONE ELSE'S HEADHOLES!" - because that feels like one of a few things that needs exploring.

    The new team can be a perfectly good one, but the odds of finding any five people who don't know each other THAT well who'll be thrilled with being mentally linked to giant sapient mechanical god-beasts and each other is basically nonexistent. It's a recipe for whacking heads into it, avoiding it, trying to pretend it's not there, and generally making an already awkward train wreck of a situation more awkward and confusing.

    Keith as main PoV because I would go insane doing this from more than one PoV and it would turn into more of a novel than it's already looking like it'll be, and who better to explore "sudden unasked for mental links to other beings" than someone with abandonment issues and trust issues everywhere *and* a few good big secrets?

    This starts around beginning of canon and I have parts to clean up and post going all the way through Season 2; it's weaving through almost entirely off-camera things and side events. Spoilers bloody everywhere.

    Summary

    The door opens. Alec tenses, which makes his body throb.
     
    A man steps through, and Alec curls his fingers into his palms, terror pulsing through him. Because the man isn't a man. He's a warlock. A demon. The same person he felt crouching over him when he fell.

    Why is he here? What has the warlock done to him?

    "Well well, little angel. You're awake."

    ***

    Alec has been told the same stories all his life. He's been taught the same lines, over and over again. Downworlders are reckless, impulsive, demonic. They're not to be trusted.

    And Magnus Bane is the epitome of everything evil about Downworlders.

    At least, that's what people keep telling him. Alec's not quite so sure anymore.

    Or: In which the Nephilim have wings, are taught to loathe Downworlders, and Alec is presented with a conundrum when Magnus Bane saves his life.

    Summary

    Prince Sidon sucked in a breath; of all the trials he had ever faced, this was by far the hardest for him. "It all started...it started with grief, and then a little girl."

    "Your little girl?"

    The prince bit his lip. It was hard enough admitting that he had fallen in love, but as unsuitable he was... "Yes. My little girl. And he helped me care for her and then...oh, Goddess above I looked away for a moment and then he stole my heart but I don't even want it back."
