  1. Summary

    A home for abandoned WIPs that still had some material I liked enough to want to share.

    Note that these stories are both unfinished and unbetaed. I have tried to provide some notes in between the completed parts explaining what scenes were originally supposed to complete the story.

    While I never say never, I have no current intention to finish the stories in this series, so reader beware!

  4. Summary

    Generalized Sensory Hypersensitivity Syndrome (GSH)
    from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    (Redirected from "sniper stare")

    Generalized Sensory Hypersensitivity Syndrome (GSH) is a condition wherein an individual's sensory perception and processing capabilities are many times greater than standard human ranges. The syndrome is rare; it is estimated that fewer than thirty in one million individuals will manifest GSH at some point in their lifetimes. Lesser forms of the syndrome, causing enhancement of only some senses, are more common, though these individuals are ten to twenty times more likely to develop full-blown GSH later in life...

    Although GSH must be carefully managed and its side effects can be debilitating, individuals with well-managed GSH are greatly in demand in the fields of law enforcement, security, intelligence, and defense, to the point that many such organizations will go to extreme lengths to attract, recruit, and retain them.

    Summary

    Bucky didn't want much. Just to keep his head down, to sell his flowers in peace, and to stay off Shield's radar. His life would have been a lot easier if his flowers weren't dead and if being a necromancer wasn't illegal, but easy or not, he was getting by. Steve didn't want much, either. He was happy working for Shield, he had good friends, and overall his life was going just about the way he wanted it. Problem was, being happy with your life was generally an invitation for fate to throw a spanner in the works—and in Steve's specific case, it was going to be a spanner named Bucky.

    (A love story about flowers, trust, and magic and the choices we make about doing what's right.)

    Summary

    A prolific assassin whose career spanned decades, however brainwashed, was always going to cause controversy when it came time for him to try and enter the afterlife. So, a compromise: he is asked to operate a liminal space, to help lost souls to find the crossing-place. No going out and gathering souls, no keeping souls, and no kicking souls out.

    It might be lonely work, but James is fine. James is fine, and then Steve Rogers, all blue-eyed sparking passion, marches into his liminal space.

    Summary

    "Post-action tacos?” Tony suggested. “I’m thinking that place by Fordham. BattleBot, you in?”

    “Can’t,” the Soldier said, typing something into his phone. “I have a date.”

    Tony stopped talking for an entire three seconds. “You. Have a date.”

    The Soldier looked up and blinked, clearly nonplussed to find Sam and Tony both staring at him. “Yes.”

    “With who?”

    “My boyfriend.”

    “You have a boyfriend. You have a boyfriend?” Tony looked like he’d just walked into a lamppost, and then the lamppost had handed him a birthday present.

    Summary

    When the Tesseract sends the Red Skull into space, something else comes through. Something eldritch and dire and – OK, maybe not that dire.

    A misunderstanding traps Tentacle God Bucky under the ice with Steve. Can they get past their differences and learn to get along? (Spoilers: Yes, yes they can.)

    Now Steve has someone to help him navigate the future and the Avengers will never be the same.

    Please note: This story is rated T for violence and language (because even as an Eldritch God Bucky swears a lot.) All tentacle sex is implied, not explicit.

    Summary

    Regardless of how it comes about, it always produces the same result: Max colliding with a barrier that stops her from going any further with Chloe. It's a wall that exists solely in the most abstract sense, its structure sound only within the confines of her own skull.

    Max wants Chloe so badly. She wishes that wanting her were enough.
