    Summary

    Inspired by one of kaciart's amazing drawings: the Winter Soldier faced with a pre-serum Steve Rogers and--conversely--1940s Bucky Barnes coming home to find Captain America lurking in the kitchen.

    Summary

    Maintenance is required, he says again, and the earpiece still does not reply.

    This is the longest he has been out of cryo in what passes for his memory. Once or twice before he had been injured during missions, and gone into the ice before bruises could spread and darken on his skin; when he came out again, he would be repaired, all hint of damage taken care of by the things they dripped into his veins. Vaguely he is aware that people can heal without the chair and the tank and the IVs, that he is special and not anyone else in the world is quite like him, but he does not know how people go about the business of healing. Be functional, he tells his right arm, and again receives no reply.

    Time, presumably, passes.

    Summary

    "What the hell," Bucky says, "get down, Steve, you idiot--!" and puts three rounds neatly into three robot attackers Steve hadn't even heard approaching. They fall down and short out and spit sparks. And, oh God, Bucky's here, turning up out of nowhere, and Bucky.

    Summary

    A month or so after the revelation of Hydra's infiltration of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the self-immolation of the Helicarriers, pieces of debris are still being fished out of the Potomac; hearings are continuing on Capitol Hill; and the future of international intelligence is still very much up in the air. And, desperate and sick, trapped halfway between conscious identity and conditioning, what's left of Hydra's wetwork asset wants to come in from the cold.

    Summary

    "Personally I could totally stand to read half a dozen more fics that open with Bucky waking up in a bunker somewhere, lost and forgotten." --winglessdrake

    Or, to put it another way, coming out of cryo under controlled conditions is bad. Coming out of it forgotten and alone in the darkness is unspeakable. Luckily, the world outside still offers holes to hide in, and places from which to watch events unfold. And, inevitably, one person who stirs waking memories he is not sure he can bear - and knows that he must bear them, if he lets them in.

    Summary

    Rose Lalonde was not having a good day.

    For one thing, she'd woken up with a vile headache despite the fact she hadn't had a damn thing to drink the night before. It had meandered around from her left to right temple and then settled behind her right eye, pulsing like a rotten tooth, and then proceeded to send glittering scotomata drifting across her vision.

    Then the voices started, and she knew she was in for it. This didn't happen often, thank fuck, but when it did it took ages to get the stains out of the carpet. She curled up and waited for the floor to go soggy and the planes and angles of the room to skew out of euclidean alignment, and somewhere in the very back of her mind admitted to herself that despite the physical unpleasantness associated with her...attacks...there was just a tiny bit of exhilaration in the feeling of raw power flowing through her.

    At which point it had all gone weird.

    Summary

    He would have been perfectly fine if it weren't for the fact that the bloody eel had had a bloody mate. The irony of this was not entirely lost on Orphaner Dualscar, perennially matespritless and currently picking needlelike eel teeth out of his left-side opercula. To add insult to injury, he'd not managed to hold on to the first eel when its better half attacked him, so dinner tonight was going to be whatever his crew could scrounge up from the diminishing stores. All the jokes about weevils were wearing rather thin.

    Summary

    He is the first person to touch you gently since before you were turned into a ship, and you are surprised at how much this matters. When he first came to see you you'd noticed his size and not much else, but when he touched your inflamed ports and made a low rumbling noise of disapproval you had winched up your attention and realized that he was being careful with you, in a way you had forgotten was possible.

    Summary

    AHCOD fill. Non-SB/SG AU, trolls and humans living together, not petstuck. Dave is a DJ living alone and working on a photo series of the city at night. Cronus is a troll providing negotiable affection for xenobiology fanciers, once fairly pricy, now fallen on hard times. They discuss socioeconomic injustice, among other things.

    Then Cronus doesn't show up to work. And Dave's creepy boss is extra creepy. And Dave learns that weapons-grade pathos is not a thing reserved for Broadway musicals, after all.

    Summary

    She's lounging in the chair at the head of the table, red boots propped on the edge, grinning that predator's grin. Stripped to her shirtsleeves, black mane tumbling over her shoulders, she laces her fingers behind her head and regards Dualscar's man for just long enough to be really worrying before saying "Well? Why are you taking up space on my ship and dripping on my deck?"

    He doesn't have a hat, but if he did, he'd be twiddling it anxiously in his hands right now. You go on sewing tiny neat stitches into the rip in her coat's lining, but you are listening hard.

    "It's my Cap'n, yer 'onor," he tells the deck.

    "What is?" Mindfang is enjoying herself so obviously that you start to feel echoes of it rippling along the link she's forged for herself into your head.

    "He's...hurt bad, marm. Terrible bad."

    Summary

    Karkat, rebel leader, makes an unsettling discovery during a supply-ship raid: a purple seatroll, disgraced, miserable, and massively gravid.

     

    It's hard to not stare at the huge mound of his belly. "It's gonna take us a couple nights to get back to the base. You're gonna have to stay in here. Please for all fuck's sake do not lay eggs on my bunk or I will have to flip my shit so hard the fucking ship's gyros will explode."

    Summary

    After the Game, the kids and trolls end up on a planet very similar to Earth, complete with oceans, mountains, forests, etc. Dave takes Sollux to the beach.

    The really bad thing about having the echoes of your powers still working is that you know when things are going to happen, without being able to stop them.
