    Summary

    Kel sat and thought about it all through the long summer-- thought about joining the Riders when she turned sixteen, or going back to the Yamani Isles with her parents, or running away to become an unlawful bandit hunter. She drank tea with her mother and accepted her quiet sympathy. She wondered what was going to happen to Peachblossom. She did her morning glaive practice dances in the heady air of the tiny courtyard garden of her parents' townhouse, where the cook grew herbs and spices in big overflowing boxes.

    Summer rolled on. She sat, and she thought, and she did not tell her thoughts to anyone. On the first day of what would have been her second year of page training, she woke before the sun and had a quiet breakfast with her father, and then she jogged up the big dusty hill to the palace.

    When the pages trailed out to the practice yards with dubious enthusiasm, she was waiting just outside their ground. Her chin was high, her shoulders loose while her hands gripped her weighted staff.

    "Probationer," Wyldon barked out her, when one of the boys went to fetch him. "Was I unclear in the spring?"

    Kel stared him down, fingers white on her staff, and said, "I'm not a probationer anymore."

    Summary

    Sam didn't expect to have the full college experience, going back to school after years in the Air Force. He's older than everyone else, still figuring out how to be a civilian again, and never really believed in the whole go to college and find yourself thing.

    Yet somehow, Sam ends up with a group of kooky friends, a major he adores, an addiction to caffeine, and a fling with a beautiful boy, who is sure to break his heart when he goes back to Wakanda at the end of the school year.

    Summary

    “Please tell me our urgent mission is actually a secret vacation on a beach somewhere?” Clint muttered into Phil’s collar.

    “Unfortunately, no,” Phil replied.

    Clint sighed. “Dammit.”

     

    Life as a SHIELD agent was never easy and frequently difficult, but the last few months had Phil tearing out what was left of his hair. Even for SHIELD, it was bordering on ridiculous, and that didn’t even include the Avenger shenanigans that Clint was now regularly involved in. All Phil had wanted was to spend time with his boyfriend when they were both in the same hemisphere. Maybe he should have been careful what he wished for, because this was not what he’d meant at all.
    Dammit. Phil was never going to get a chance to propose.

    (Not that proposing was the priority right now. Not when they had certain doom to thwart. Again.)
     

    Or, Clint and Phil go on a mission and sarcasm, explosions, romance and marriage proposals abound!
