    Summary

    Somewhere in her is the sinking feeling that they weren't supposed to survive.

    [Jyn's not entirely sure how they lived. She just knows that they did. She's not sure how the Rebellion lost the plans, either, but she has half a plan to fix that. Maybe. Mon Mothma has other ideas.]

    [Post-Rogue One. Runs through A New Hope. Eventual Rebelcaptain.]

    Summary

    On the train platform, Harry suffered a hug from Remus, a hair ruffle from Sirius, and a "don't do anything I wouldn't do" from his mother, and then he ran for the brick wall, cart rattling before him. The snowy owl they'd gotten him hooted softly in protest. Harry had named her Ororo after the Muggle comic books his mother had introduced him to. Lily took Harry to the comic store every time he sat through a whole visit with his aunt, uncle, and cousin and didn't kick anybody unless they kicked him first.

    Bill tried to wipe some dirt off a dodging Ron's nose. Ginny complained loudly about being left behind. Fred and George ran off to see Lee Jordan's spider. People watched the Weasleys from all directions--they were hard to miss--and Ron's shoulders slowly rose up and up to his reddening ears. He missed the big empty orchards behind the Burrow already.

    Ron was one of the last people on the train. He slid past staring eyes and finally stepped himself into an almost unoccupied compartment-- there was just one small boy tucked in there. He had messy dark hair, slightly askew round glasses, and a comic book held up in front of his nose.

    "Is it okay if I sit here?" said Ron. "Everywhere else is full."

    Summary

    Sharon Carter expected to pull a gun in the line of duty. She didn’t expect to pull it here. SHIELD was her holy ground.

    --

    Some aunts take you to mass, but Sharon’s took her to the shooting range.

    When Sharon finally met Captain Rogers, she was almost startled at his size. She’d read the comics, sure, but to Sharon, who had heard all the stories (and to Peggy, who had told them), Steve Rogers would always be 5’4” and breakable, had always been a hero.

    Her mother had told her bedtime stories about Aunt Peggy saving the world. Her aunt had told her stories about a skinny kid who hated bullies, and a crew of wisecracking soldiers who followed his lead—about Steve and Bucky and all the Howling Commandos out to save the day and chase away each of Sharon’s nightmares.

    Her father told her stories about talking elephants and singing mice who built treehouses together.

    Sharon carried all of those with her, into the lies of pink nurses' scrubs and the chaos of SHIELD's fall, into everything that came afterwards.

    But this came first.

    (A Sharon Carter character study)

    Summary

    Born from a prompt: "Elizabeth from a universe where John is dead meets John from a universe where Elizabeth is dead."

    If Colonel Elizabeth Weir thinks it's bad when "space-time Stargate crash" is the most accurate way to describe how her team ended up in this version of Atlantis, running into her dead ex-boss just makes it all a lot worse. Especially since she's the one that got him killed—twice.

    (Features a military Elizabeth Weir and a diplomat, non-military John Sheppard. All from the canon AU timeline from the SG-1 Episode 3x06 "Point of View" intersecting with the Atlantis main timeline. Because AUs are even more fun when they're canon.)
