    Summary

    The ocean air shimmered, and suddenly she could see Steve drifting back to shore like so much flotsam, left to bake under the hot sun. His skin darkened as the sun crossed the sky, until at dusk, a battered fishing vessel pulled up to a rock close by, and someone shouted from the distance–

    Dreams can change the world. And suddenly, a voice drier, far less vague, than the sea's whisper: "I suggest the south of France."

    (Alternately, Diana finds Steve after the events of the film, and saves a few people along the way.)

    The baby had quieted once warm, wrapped in a blanket of soft wool, held close to a comforting chest. Diana touched her face, the button nose, and stifled a gasp when the baby's mouth opened and tried to suck at her finger. [...] I'd ask you to pinch me, but – you're bleeding," he said, a note of alarm spiking his words. "Are you–"

    "It's not my blood," Diana assured him. She leaned closer, bringing his hand to where streaks of red had smeared. Steve shuddered, breath quickening. "I just held a newborn baby." Steve stared at her, and laughed until he coughed.

    "I guess killing Ares did help end the war," Steve said in disbelief, when Diana gave him the rest of the tale.

    "Oh, so now you believe me," she teased, and Steve gasped out a laugh.

    "I'm human. I'm capable of all sorts of things, like changing my mind." He glanced at her. "Do you want breakfast? To read the newspaper?

    I AM A PUDDLE OF EMOTIONS RIGHT NOW.

    Summary

    There are a lot of things Steve wants to say. Like 'what the hell is this thing,' and 'why are you in this fight all by yourself,' and 'I love you, I love you, I love you.'

    Instead, he says: “DIANA, LOOK OUT!” And then he dives to the side as the creature’s tail slices through the air where he once stood.

    (In which instead of properly dying, Steve Trevor gets shoved back into the world of the living a hundred years after the end of the war. It's more than a little confusing.)

    He remembers what it felt like to put his hands on her shoulders and say goodbye and know, with such sharp certainty, that he’d never hold her in his arms like this again. // MY BBS, MY HEART, LEAVE ME HEREEEEE

    Summary

    The words safe house conjure up a picture of a dark and fortified hideout, certainly not this plain but clean wooden house in the outer suburbs. Michael/Sara. Spoilers for Season One and Season Two. Pretty much AU from "Scan" onwards, but borrows events from "First Down", "Sub-Division", "Buried", "Bolshoi Booze", "Diconnected" and "Chicago".

    Summary

    He’s still breathing heavily from the battle, his uniform no longer neatly pressed, and she knows she must look much the same. A sudden, overwhelming desire hits her as she takes him in, considering their options. Their trouble is they don’t look innocent by any means, and all exits are likely blocked by now, making it hard to talk or fight their way out of this.

    From the corner of her eye, she spies a dark conference room.

    “I have an idea,” she says, mind whirling as she steps towards the room. “We need a reason to be here like this.” He follows close behind her and she can practically feel the tension washing over him. In contrast, the plan forming in her mind has provided her with a calm clarity. He closes the door behind them before she props it ajar.

    They need to be caught.

    She races back to the turbolift with him, step for step, but the turbolift is already nonresponsive. “Stairs,” they say at the same time, turning at the same time and running like hell. She takes a moment to pull out her vibroblade, the light fabric of her dress swirling around her ankles. Kriffing formalwear.
