    Summary

    The merchant, Gnaeus, who had sold Marcus this property, had spoken of a solid main building, of well-kept pens and fertile soil, all newly abandoned by deceitful tenants and only cheap because he was tired of the whole business and wanted the land off his hands for good. He had talked of neighbours and a village nearby with opportunities of trade, but he had entirely failed to mention that the house lay deep in tribal country.

    Summary

    She had been called by many names, from Amonute to Rebecca, and she had as many secret names by which no man had ever called her. It's best that we speak of her as Pocahontas, the playful one.

    Summary

    Thor is an epic troll. Literally--there are epics written about him and everything. And if anyone's surprised that he managed to pull one over the super-spies or get right back at Tony Stark and Dr. Bruce Banner (a formidable pair of trolls in their own right, to be sure), they should have realised that you don't grow up with the god of lies and mischief without picking up a few tricks along the way.

    This is the story of how Thor trolled the hell out of everybody, with a little help from Captain America, Dr. Jane Foster, and eventually the God of Lies himself. Because really, what sort of demi-god couldn't win his brother back from darkness by the power of love trolling?

    Summary

    Taking a shot at filling my own prompt on avengerkink:

    In an AU, instead of taking out Tony's arc-reactor, Obadiah Stane kidnapped Tony, faked his death in a "lab accident", imprisoned him, and forced him to design weapons for Stane.

    Bruce is going about his day hacking Stark Industries to learn more about the Hulkbuster weapons when he comes across some discrepancies in the code--subtle things, like inefficient loops in otherwise streamlined code, bizarre variable names, or incorrect comments.

    Intrigued, he goes through all the code of SI's weapons industry, comes up with a pattern, and finds the messages Tony has been hiding in the code.

    And then he goes and busts Tony out. Lots of badassery, including on Tony's part--he may be defeated, but he's not broken.

    Summary

    Stephanie Rogers has fought Nazis.

    She's dressed up as a man (and wasn't that fun.)

    She's played strip poker - and won.

    She may or may not have kissed Bucky Barnes, but don't believe everything Jaques says.

    And she'll probably end up killing every single one of the Avengers, because the future? Not so swell.

    (But at least she looks good in red, white and blue spandex.)
