    Summary

    Okay, so Bucky Barnes has a crush on Steve Rogers. The guy's gorgeous, talented and, oh yeah, the Chief Design Officer of the biggest tech company in the world. In other words: he's so far out of Bucky's league that he might as well be in a different stratosphere.

    Summary

    Bucky has had a rough couple of days, and his mom repeatedly reminding him that he’s destined for spinster-hood (now that he’s 30 and single) is certainly not helping.

    It’s not his fault; he’s clearly waiting for Mr. Right...

    At least that’s what he tells himself every time his mom reminds him to, “Find a nice Beta and settle down.”

    Dating is hard. Dating as an Omega is a little bit harder.

    Summary

    Hogwarts is the best summoning school in the land. Students train hard for years before they summon and contract a guardian to aid them in their quests. Quests fraught with peril on the continent overrun by beasts, monsters and demons.

    There was also the Quadsummoner Tournament where summoners and guardians battled other teams to claim the championship title. One that Harry Potter was determined to do well in and secure a place within the top ten. That would show that upstart Malfoy up!

    Except Harry shouldn’t have been late for the summoning class. The mistake cost him his chance at contracting a coveted guardian. Instead he gets this…
    Who is this man in front of him? This Tom Riddle? A nobody wizard guardian? Not that Harry minded, but he was going to have to bear the brunt of Malfoy’s teasing. The whole school was now betting that he would lose the tournament to Malfoy.
    What utter codswallop!

    Summary

    Steve hadn't known what to expect. Even with all his training he feels unprepared.

    Any presumptions and expectations he did have went down the drain at the sight of him... of the demon with those ice-cold eyes that watch him. One blink and then the demon is upon him, metal arm wrapped around his throat, like a lion pawing a mouse.

    The cold fingers against his pulse don't hurt.

    The demon portrays no evil intent, choosing to wrap its shadows around Steve's limbs as he leans his human form closer to the cadet, pink lips ghosting over the shell of Steve's ear as he breathes the human in.

    Steve's heart is racing so fast, so quick, it would have been hard for the demon not to have heard it, to have seen his weakness. But by then it's too late: the demon lets out a deafening scream, hair shadowing his eyes as he crumples to the floor.

    This is his chance.

    Steve's only chance.

    It's now or never.

    No regrets.

    Even if it is the most foolish decision Steve will ever make.

    Summary

    Bucky's therapist recommends that he try hiking, so he gives it a shot. He runs into Steve on his very first hike, during an unfortunate encounter with a bird.

    It goes from there.
