    Summary

    It was only an accident. It wasn't supposed to end like this. Scott's not content to let it lie. He's always felt that he has to do something.

    In which Scott is (sort of) Orpheus and Stiles is (maybe) Eurydice.
    It's a long, long way down.

    Summary

    Retelling of CA:TWS with Steve Rogers as the Winter Soldier.

    There is an empty grave at Arlington with Steve's name on it. It's been there for almost seventy years. Bucky would do anything, give anything, give back every second of his borrowed time, to make things right. It should be his name on that grave; it should have been him.

    Summary

    Gods trapped and chained as half-mad wardogs. Gods that turn the tides of entire wars when they take the field -- closely guarded and hard to restrain, harder still to pull back. Release them, and the world's a different place than it could have been.

    But the gods have been fading and dying off because there's no worship left, not really. It's a shame; Tony's been interested in them, got that from Howard, but he's never going to meet one himself.

     

    He didn't think to look for one in the family basement.

    Summary

    "I am really, truly not a hotel," Loki says as Boda steps in, still smelling like arctic and pine. He glares as Natasha ruffles his hair before she steps up to Boda, stretching on tiptoe to kiss the other woman before she heads out the door.

    Never them both at the same time, always one stepping out the door as the other comes in. He should start charging--Loki's home for stray doms.

    Then again, most are terrible, and he'd rather not risk more people.

    Summary

    “What? Oh, geez, kid.” Gerard laughs, and it’s not mean, but the kid half-flinches back, a repressed sort of reaction, mostly suppressed but still visible. Gerard notices for the first time the way the line of his hips is sharp enough to cut paper.

    “Ryan,” he says, meeting Gerard’s eyes again. “My name is Ryan.”

    - 1 best bro to end all best bros
    = 1 Craigslist ad headline that reads "str8 dude - m4m - strictly platonic".

    "Beverly is five on his half-full speed dial because it's the easiest number to hit when he grasps at his phone in the heat of panic and listens to the static rush in his ears, in his breath, from bottom to top and over again.
    Her voice always sounds far away when she answers with, "Will?" and Will nods to the air and breathes harder and Beverly always understands."

    Will goes to Beverly when everything becomes too much. Beverly takes care of him.

    Summary

    Ezra’s good at love. He said it to a journalist once: he’s very much in love with no one in particular. He’s kind of proud of the phrase.

    He’s good at the immediate spark. He doesn’t want to waste it because someone doesn’t want to let him go. So he loves them, everyone, but gently, like it’s no big deal.

    “So you and Scott are together,” Derek says, evenly.
    “What?” Stiles says. “It’s not— it’s not like that, okay, Scott and I are not together, I—” Stiles rubs his forehead with the palm of his hand, fingers crooked like the impatient little smile that flashes across his face. “It’s going to be really weird for you if I say ‘we’re so close he feels like a part of me’ now, isn’t it?”
    Derek says, “So having sex with Scott is like masturbating to you.”

    “A wound gives off its own light
    surgeons say. If all the lamps in this house were turned out

    The one where Mark wakes up and discovers he can see other people’s pain as light.
    Or, the Glowing AU.
