    Summary

    For a while, he'd thought that was all it had been: that Will came cheap and was easily owned and had never known that about himself. That Hannibal had taken him in and fed him with friendship, like one of Will's own strays, and taught him how and what and whom to want. Nothing to titillate Freddie Lounds' readership, when you took it apart and looked at it.

    But that wasn't the entire truth, either. He knew that. He'd known it all along.

    Summary

    “I was in Italy last year,” she said. “Rome, the actual city. I was there for five days, for a trade show.”

    “And what, now?” Rome settled on the edge of the bed, one foot tucked under her. “It made you think of me?”

    “It made me think of those stories you used to cap your act with, at the Girdle. About the Roman Empire, and the priestesses of Beauty and Love. How you could buy doves at the Temple of Venus, so you could cut their throats on the altar, or you could make a wish and set them free -- remember that?”

    “You thought that story was bullshit,” said Rome.

    “Well,” said Paris, “I was a little girl with a chip on my shoulder.”

    Summary

    Hannibal wanted to cook again. He wanted to ply Will with more than hot drinks and canned vegetables and fish. He wanted to make fine dishes, kingly extravagances from Carême or Escoffier, and watch the involuntary pleasure in Will’s face and body as he ate. He wanted, too, to take Will’s hands between his, and sometimes he did, but it was not enough -- he wanted to be able to sate Will, to fill him a little too much, to match the way Hannibal felt when he looked at him.

    Summary

    “He wouldn’t want to be buried here,” said Will Graham, managing to sound as if he cared what Grutas might have wanted. “He didn’t understand freedom when faced with it; he crawled on the ground and no longer had the strength to transcend his circumstances.” He picked up a snail and looked at it, turning it between his fingers. “As those responsible for his life and death, we owe him the honour of metamorphosis.”

    Is he incapable of not being creepy, thought Chiyoh, or is he merely not making an effort?

    Summary

    “What will you do, now that it is yours?” Hannibal said. “Will you eat it?”

    “That would doom me to stay.”

    “Then stay,” Hannibal said.

    Summary

    He explained the intricacies of his hobby to Rei the second – or perhaps the third – time they got drunk together, on the cheapest beer carried by the Antarctic convoy. A regular boomerang was thrown at an angle approaching vertical and returned in a horizontal hover from behind, but a long-distance competition boomerang was thrown at an angle less than 45 degrees and returned, diving, on a path that projected on the ground roughly as an elongated ellipse. Its highest point was near its furthest.

    (His line of sight is obscured, but his heart still traces the path of its flight.)

    Summary

    "The church across the street is filled," Will said. "Every pew."

    He still hadn't turned. Hannibal made himself look away, and went to the counter to pour himself a glass of water. His hand was steady, and the muscle of his heart – he knew it was, but felt its stutter like a phantom.

    Summary

    “It’s the job, my lad,” Balin said. “Gandalf convinced us we need world class talent, and it’s hard to get hold of a fellow who’s off Smaug’s radar, hasn’t turned white hat, and isn’t in jail.” There was a pause. “Liked the warchalk mark, by the by. Very old school.”

    “What?” said Bilbo.

    Summary

    The Fuji boys celebrate their fifteenth and fourteenth birthdays respectively, with presents; Yumiko is possibly a Candomblé priestess. Or: Yuuta comes to terms with his brother post-Nationals, featuring guest appearances by the Saint Rudolph tennis team, and hints of offscreen TezuFuji to which he's blissfully oblivious.

    See the end notes for an EP-length soundtrack.

    Summary

    “Saa...” Yuushi stares up at Atobe’s second-best Christmas tree: slowly spinning glass ornaments, tinsel trembling minutely in the warm air rising from the fire. He tries half-shutting his eyes. The vision loses focus, becomes a swim of silver and blue and gold smudges. Fairy lights. “...We’re not friends, you know. It’s just whomever Atobe finds interesting at the moment.”

    “Are you serious?” says Gakuto. “You’ve known each other for how long, since nursery school?”

    “That sort of thing doesn’t matter to Atobe.”

    Gakuto considers this. He pops a marshmallow into his mouth, chews carefully.

    “You know,” he says, “People change. I’m just saying.”

    ***

    The Hyoutei third-years' beginnings in the junior high tennis club; or, how Oshitari observes changes in others, and fails to notice changes in himself. Also, a very Atobe Christmas to you.

    Summary

    "Give me worthwhile intel, not hypotheses," said the Winter Soldier. "The floor plan of another HYDRA plant. OK. A SHIELD medical facility. OK. But taking blood from Captain America is not like taking it from a refrigerator."

    Summary

    Black Widow got the call four hours ago, in Munich. She's been thankful for three hours forty-five minutes that Phil Coulson is putatively dead. Bad enough to get sitreps on the order of "We lost track of Captain America in a firefight with mystery assassins," or "We found Captain America divested of his pants in a by-the-week rental room." Loop Coulson in and they'd never hear the end of it; it'd be worse than the aftermath of the trading cards.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers, modern mores, and late 20th to early 21st century art.

    Rating, relationships, and characters subject to change as fic progresses, but likely to draw on some of the more recent Brubaker Captain America and Winter Soldier comics (the canon has to come from somewhere).
