    Summary

    After the events of all that you love will be carried away, Hux and Ren and the Dark Heart are sent on a series of missions by Supreme Leader Snoke, searching for ancient Jedi ruins and the information that might still remain within them to be discovered and unlocked. It is a far cry from the Finalizer and the Starkiller Base assignment, but Hux is developing philosophical distance, and in any case he is too busy to brood overmuch.

    But the things they discover are far from simple, and not limited to ancient tumbledown temples on backwater planetoids--and in fact Hux and Ren learn rather more about each other than Snoke might have had in mind.

    Summary

    Supreme Leader, the oscillator is failing. The collapse has begun. There is nothing that can be done.

    Hux, sent to retrieve Kylo Ren from the dying Starkiller Base, has lost almost everything, and has little patience or tolerance left for anyone or anything--particularly not Snoke's pet pseudo-Sith and his amateur theatrics. But you do the job that is in front of you, to the best of your ability, and you hold on as long as you can.

    Now with illustrations by givenclarity!

    Summary

    The kid's eyes were blue.

    Max notices things without knowing he's noticed them, these days. Little fragments of image, of memory, stick in the churned mess of his head like slivers of glass: too small to bleed, they fester.

    Of all the things he can't now forget about the past few days, this is not an important one, but it keeps coming back. How blue the kid's eyes had been, in his wasted face, powdered white and smudged black with the War Boys' skull paint. How wide and how blue.

    It keeps coming back.

    ~

    Out here, everything hurts: as King once said, the spiritual state of unbelief is desperation. Leaving the Citadel alone after the survivors' triumphant return in the battered Gigahorse, the voices in Max's head are silent, but he finds himself changing course for the wreck of the War Rig nonetheless, not sure what he's expecting to find, not sure what he's hoping for.

    Summary

    Post-Planes: Fire and Rescue: Dusty comes back from working a fire, exhausted and damaged, and has some little time to consider his place in the world while Maru cleans ash and debris out of his intakes. Might just be the beginning of a series of drabbles.

    Summary

    It's always different looking into something than being inside it.

    Always. No matter where you are, who you are. Intensity is relative. Blade can remember, in the dim dead days of Los Angeles, people talking in bars: oh you're on TV, you're him, you're Blade Ranger, oh wow you're really him, what's it like, what's it like being awesome, what's it like being a star? What's it like being you?

    ~

    After the fire: Blade watches the kid flying aerobatics and considers what it was like to have somebody else fly your stunts for you. Remembers another world. Remembers what it was like to be right out of make-believe and trying hard as he could to be real.

    Summary

    Captain America can remember everything before the ice, and wishes it were otherwise. Whatever the limitations of the serum, it's very evident that he has a long and profoundly lonely existence ahead of him.

    Then Project Insight turns grief into guilt, and until something comes tapping on his bedroom window after dark, lonely and long threatens to become unbearable; but it turns out that Spenser was right after all: there is nothing lost but may be found, if sought.

    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.
