    Summary

    Somewhere along the line, Solo starts showering her with jewels.

    They're all exquisite, and extravagant, and very clearly stolen. Every mission, something new shows up; they work among the obscenely rich almost as a matter of course, and she suspects Solo's breaking their safes just to pass the time. She speculates, a little, what proportion of these gifts are newly stolen, and what's been hidden for years, waiting for the right time to surface. The Americans had recovered the art, the antiquities, but apparently they haven't got to everything. Gaby thinks, probably, they've barely scratched the surface of what Solo might have stolen all these years.

    Summary

    Just a little one-shot story in the Quriosity universe. I decided to continue it, but got stuck and am taking it back down to a oneshot until the whole thing is written so I don't leave people in suspense. Chapter 2 is just a placeholder for now. Inspired by a scene in The Hour, where Ben Whishaw's character says, "I don't want to die at the bloody office!"

    Excerpt:

    “What is it, Q?” He could hear the sudden hyperawareness in Bond’s voice.

    “Hostiles in Q Branch.” Q could feel the eerie calm of mission mode settling over himself as well as he snapped a half-full magazine into the box of the Walther. “Stand by.”

    Summary

    Sam and Steve have tracked the Winter Soldier back to New York, but they have to put their search on hold when a wizard starts robbing banks on Broadway. During the fight, Steve gets hit with a spell that separates him from the rest of the Avengers, leaves him 10 inches shorter, 145 pounds lighter, and convinced the year's still 1943.

    And of course once Steve's forgotten about him, he runs into the Winter Soldier.

    “Give yourself some credit,” Eret teases, “chief of Berk, you may be new to all of this but your keenness makes up for what great deal of experience you lack.”
