"The king is dead," says Samuels. "Long live the king."
A story about fealty and destiny, spies and secrets, and the things we do to hold onto power.
What if Hannibal finds actually living with his love for Will is beyond him? Will can only wait for so long before he forces Hannibal’s hand. Or, a very Hannigram argument in an elevator.
Early birthday fic for wraithsonwings, who prompted “Hannibal and Will get stuck in an elevator"
Not unusually, Will awakes in Hannibal’s bed. At his side, the sheets are empty and cool, slung carelessly back. Will stretches and contemplates the smooth slide of cotton so fine it could almost be silk. No matter in which bed he begins each day, the world he wakens in is not his own. It is an empty existence, filled only with incidentals - fine linen, custom-made clothing, vintage wines. Beautiful apartments and luxury resorts. Cocktail parties, dinners, and gala openings.
He lives this life deliberately, and allows himself to be dragged round society’s gatherings, dressed and approved by Hannibal. It is a choice he makes every morning. Because he understands something about Hannibal now, something new. Something which Will has wrought upon him.
Hannibal is hiding; from himself and from Will.
In the aftermath of The Fall, Will allows himself to be pulled back into Jack's world of serial murder investigation. Someone is killing with quite elaborate purpose, marking their victims by smashing all the clocks in the house at the time of death.
- Part 1 of Loved the Stars Too Fondly
James Barnes thinks he has relatively normal life. He has a job (security at the Wakandan embassy) and a house and some hobbies. Sure, he shares a name with the famous (now dead) international assassin and he just woke up from a coma with no arm or memory of his past life - but everyone has their quirks, right? Nonetheless, James can’t shake the feeling he was meant for more than this. When he discovers he has superpowers, James finds himself taking on the mantle of vigilante and finds himself face to face with a masked superhuman named Nomad.
Where did James get his superpowers? Why can't he remember his past? Why is he so drawn to Nomad's blue eyes? And how does Steve Rogers play into all of this?
Featuring: a superhero's origin, a love story, and a happy ending.

“I gotta talk to you, buddy, real quick,” Poe says lowly, and grabs Finn’s hand to haul him back out of the mess hall. His pilot friends cheer loudly, Karé yelling something about keeping it decent, and Finn barely has a second to process it before Poe’s yanking him away and into a deserted side corridor.
“I can explain,” he says quickly, running his spare hand through his hair.
“Well good,” Finn snaps hotly, “Because I’ve had a really fucking weird day.”
Otherwise known as: Finn Is An Oblivious Numbskull, or: the one where Finn gets a name, a jacket, a droid, and a marriage out of nowhere in only a few short weeks
