    Summary

    Other than Napoleon and the CIA watchdog assigned to him, the prison bus was empty. It was once a schoolbus, but had since been rudely repurposed, painted a dark charcoal gray with the words Virginia Department of Corrections printed in neat white paint under the murky windows. Outside, flat, baked farmland went past, acres of it, dotted sparsely with trees. There was no air conditioning in the bus, and the windows were open only in varying slivers; Napoleon felt like he was baking, himself, in clothes that were three days old. His shirt stuck to his back, and his jeans felt uncomfortably stiff on his legs.

    Napoleon watched the trees go past in a daze. His hands were cuffed to the chrome ring attached to the seat in front of him, and his legs were hobbled. It was hard to believe that only four days ago he had wandered through MoMa with a gorgeous leggy blonde on his arm, then wined and dined her at a nice French bistro. Strange how quickly the worm turned, just on the back of a single mistake.

    “Right side,” the watchdog said. “Get your first look at your new home for the next decade and a half, kid.”

    Summary

    "What if there was?" Combeferre asks abruptly, when she's halfway to her feet.

    She stops and blinks at him. "Was what?"

    "Someone willing to marry you." There's a flush of pink on his cheeks that's enthralling, but his gaze doesn't waver.

    "Then I'd tell them no." Éponine snorts. "Anyone who wants to marry a strange woman sight-unseen is after something, and I've had my fill of being used."

    "Someone who's not a complete stranger, then. Someone you've shared a conversation with." He glances around them at the cafe, at the table between them, and clears his throat. "Shared a meal with. What would you say then?"

    It's platonic. Just business. All pretend. Kara's always been good at pretend. Why would dating Cat Grant be any different?

    Summary

    Steve Rogers is struck by a persistent headache as the dawn rises over DC.

    So are—simultaneously—Natasha Romanov in the Muscovite night, James Barnes in the dull grey of a Berlin afternoon, Tony Stark stumbling out of his Afghan cave, Bruce Banner in the crushing heat of the Nevada desert, Clint Barton squinting up at the Vegas lights, Loki Laufeyson under the Scandinavian sun, and Prince T'Challa amidst the West African rainforest.

    Surely it’s nothing but an odd coincidence.

    Summary

    As far as potion accidents go in general, and deaging incidents go in particular, Draco knew this could have been so much worse. Harry only lost about ten years, and all his memories are still intact. But the sight of him looking as if he’s stepped straight out of Draco’s Hogwarts memories has dredged up a whole mess of complicated feelings Draco thought he’d buried years ago, and Draco really doesn’t know what to do with any of it.
