    Summary

    In only a few months, Clint Barton has single-handedly managed to do what Loki, Doom, and the Sentry failed to achieve: the world is ending.

    The superheroes' world, anyway. Clint has kind of lost track of who wants to kill him at that point. As SHIELD and the WSC enter an unspoken cold war, some might consider this utter disaster as an opportunity to start anew. War is brewing on stage, but Clint stays in the wings, because he's looking for someone. Desperately so.

    But with so many people on his tail, he just might be found first.

     

    Sequel of In The Details.

    Summary

    In the year 96 AD, all Rome is aware that their gods have begun to Mark certain people with their gifts -- the healing power of Apollo, the metal control of Vulcan, the deathly touch of Pluto, or the mental powers of Minerva. When those gifts fall to slaves or barbarians instead of the Romans themselves, strict control is necessary.

    Then a gladiator from Judea meets an enslaved scribe from Britannia, and the repercussions will shake the Empire itself.

    (Now with illustrations from the awesomely talented LooLooBee!)

    Summary

    The briefing was simple: ‘Stand guard over the Michael Sword until the battle is ready to commence. Await further instructions.’

    Castiel doesn’t mind working security duty; he was briefed shortly after the initial salvation of the Sword from the pit, and again before taking up his position. He knows what to do. However, it’s easy to forget that the green room isn’t real. Time moves differently there, the space ever-changing to make a prison of mountains, cathedrals, salt flats, orchards, and whatever Castiel was led to believe about Heaven’s greatest weapon—Dean Winchester is something entirely unexpected.

    Summary

    This wasn't Steve's plan for tonight.

    Part of the plan, maybe. The part where he goes to a club, anonymous and dark; that's been part of the plan from the start. The part where he finds some... company; also part of the plan. He's self-aware enough to know how pathetically lonely he's feeling right now. The rest of the plan had been...less detailed, more just a collection abstract ideas. None of which he'd imagined would lead him here, his palms sweaty as they fish handfuls of cash out of his pockets, one arm anchored around the waist of a man who is very enthusiastically nibbling on his earlobe.

     

    Or:

    Steve tries and fails to master the whole 'one-night stand' thing, lies snowball in a truly epic fashion, the supervillains of New York are all out of control, Tony is the worst best friend and mediator in the history of ever, and Bucky has the patience of a saint. Guest starring: Augustus the houseplant, projectile pineapples, and Target superhero costumes.
