    Summary

    Steve's rarely been touched in a way that didn't equate to some kind of hurt. The cold metal of a stethoscope against his frail chest or the sting of a needle drawing yet another blood sample, when he was a sickly child. The bone-shattering punches thrown by the neighborhood bullies on the playground, or by his own father at home, drunk and wild. His mother, weak and clutching at him as she grew more incoherent with the drugs as the cancer ate away at her insides. Touch was something he shied away from, something he told himself he just didn't want.

    Except...he did. He just didn't know how.

    Until he finds a flyer for a local "affection and intimacy services" program.

    In which Steve learns how to become comfortable with touch, and there is one very good dog, and a slow-burn romance.

    Summary


    The Avengers sitcom we all secretly want. Well, maybe the Avengers hour-long action dramadey we all secretly want.

    Multi story, multi couple series. Series order is suggested reading order (not necessarily chronological order). You'd don’t have to read them all to read one, but they do compliment (and spoil) each other. Heavy Boots of Lead contains a series summary at the beginning if you want to skip to.

    Mostly canon-compliant through Winter Soldier, and then we're off on our own.

    Summary

    The Avengers have their dark pasts, their sad stories and bloody hands; however, through all of that, they cling to the bright moments, the ones that matter.

    They've all got their comfort food, and Tony will not let his family go hungry again.

    Summary

    A BDSM AU initially written for a prompt for Clint being a fractious, unruly, and unhappy sub, who Fury attaches to Coulson in the hope that Coulson can tame him. Coulson elects to do so through unconditional love, and rewarding good behavior while ignoring bad.

    And then it grew on me, with other ships and events spanning the pre-Natasha years to Winter Soldier.
