    Summary

    Erin Gilbert is not the first straight girl Jillian Holtzmann has ever fallen for.

    Here’s the thing: she’s good at patterns. She’s good at identifying patterns. Holtzmann isn't a mathematician but that doesn't mean she's not great at numbers and evaluating data and drawing a conclusion. She's a goddamn genius. This shit is easy in the way that people are difficult. Erin Gilbert is not the second or even the fifth straight girl Jillian’s ever fallen for, and it’s kind of getting to be a problem, except when she sees Dr Erin Gilbert, she thinks, maybe, this woman might be a statistical outlier. Nobody can wear that much tweed and be straight, surely. And she keeps trying, hopefully, to believe that, until the Kevin Crush makes it pretty fucking clear that it’s a losing bet. No big. Jillian is used to this, after all, and it’s totally definitely not going to be a problem at all.

    Summary

    In which Bucky is the new kid, Steve is the square who takes him in, Tony and Pepper fight over valedictorian a year in advance, Thor remains a golden god, Loki remains a drama queen, Natasha commits an act of vigilante justice, Clint somehow fails to make a your mom joke, Darcy is a Satanist, Jane is a goth, Sif is fine thank you very much, Sam climbs a tree, Peggy says no, Rumlow is a bully, and Mrs. Rogers, Mr. Coulson, and Ms. Hill are all very long-suffering.

    Or: the story of the year Bucky Barnes finally learned how to talk to at least one other human being, discovered J. D. Salinger, started to try in school (kind of), got a haircut, landed a punch, almost got arrested, and kissed a boy on the mouth.

    Summary

    It's grand to be an Englishman in 1910
    King Edward's on the throne;
    It's the age of men
    [...]
    A British nanny must be a gen'ral!
    The future empire lies within her hands
    And so the person that we need to mold the breed
    Is a nanny who can give commands!

    -- from "The Life I Lead" (Lyrics: Robert B. Sherman)

    Summary

    Alexander Hamilton was that rarity of rarities—a legitimate innocent bystander—but also a journalist who had not so much “witnessed” illegal activity as “screamed in its face.”

    “Wait,” Burr said. “He live-tweeted the cops putting Seabury in cuffs?”

    (Or, the one where Alexander Hamilton is a witness in need of protection and Burr has just lost a very crucial coin toss.)
