    Bruce Wayne and Wally West have a long history together, going back to when Wally was a kid with a crush and Bruce was too busy being Batman to notice. Now they're both adults and in the wake of the revelations of the Justice Lords the two of them are growing closer together, even as the world (and Lex Luthor) conspire to keep them apart.

    Summary

    Arthur and Eames have known each other since the military, but, just like everything with them, it's a little more complicated than that.

    ---

    “You and Arthur,” she starts, and then realises she has no idea how to finish this. She pauses, Dom has stopped mid-awful joke he’d been telling to Yusuf, and is staring at her with a look of dawning horror.

    “You and Arthur?” she tries, hoping it’s self-explanatory.

    Eames’ face has gone very still. Then he smiles, slow and dark; the kind of smile that gets him into people’s safes and then into their beds.

    “Wouldn’t you like to know,” he says, and Ariadne has absolutely no idea what to do with that.

    A beautiful gift for me from Espoir. A little bit heart-breaking, but the characters are right, and there are so many things left unanswered ... really a pleasure to read.

    Summary

    “Did you shoot me?” Phil asks, confused.

    “In my own defense, I didn’t notice you standing behind me,” Clint says.

    “In my own defense, I was standing behind you.” Phil sits up with a small groan. Clint tries to offer a hand, but gets his arm thumped by the arrow. That’s probably fair. “I’m not up on my archery technique, but doesn’t that mean you’re fantastically bad at this?”

    Meet-cute where Clint is an Avenger but also a landlord, and Phil moves into his building and is so much better at being the landlord and fixing things than Clint will ever be. Also, mutual friends, and a dog named Lucky, Phil and Natasha bonding over how hopeless Clint is, boomerang arrows.

    Summary

    If there is an indisputable fact about Phil Coulson, it is that he is ordinary. When all other truths like mortality, identity, humanity, and biology are under attack, this one cornerstone of reality is the ground he will stand and die on.

    Phil Coulson is ordinary, damn it, and people do not fall in love with ordinary.

    Mostly because the author's note made me laugh: "So I just wrote an almost 10k story just so I could use that joke about the Nile.

    You think I'm kidding? I'm not kidding."

    I totally understand where that person is coming from. And also it's Clint/Coulson kind of failing to get-together in spite of everyone, and I mean everyone, knowing they're stupid for one another.

    Summary

    Clint Barton knows where his loyalties lie, and they have more to do with his handler than his employer. Phil Coulson takes his responsibilities seriously, and a big part of his job is protecting the agent in his care from any threat to his well-being.

    At this rate, neither of them is going to get a date. Natasha Romanov has other ideas, and the only side she's on is her own.

    Maria Hill gets to Clint and convinces him to leave. Nat and Phil go after him and convince him to come back. There's handcuffing and banter and UST and admitting it.

    Summary

    The author's Battle Creek fics, in the order they were written. The stories aren't related and do not belong to a single universe; this is just my way of collecting them and making it easy for people to keep track of the new ones (if you have an AO3 account, just hit "Subscribe" to be alerted when I post a new story) while I'm still anonymous. :D

    Has the voices down really well, especially Russ's in your head voice, and how much of a dick he really is sometimes. First story has the Beige Boyfriend, FBI agent, kidnapped girl plot line.
