    Summary

    Sequel to: you’re a holy fool all colored blue.

    Home, for James, was once a shoulder holster in a foreign country, women he didn’t know and regularly forgot, the London skyline outside his window, a martini shaken just right, and a suit so sharp, marks sometimes cut themselves on his edges. Home, now, is a person, is pizza after a long day, an entire cabinet full of tea, soft pillows and a warm mouth across his shoulders—it’s still London, but home is a flat he shares, a bed where he fights for blankets, the permanent indent of a book spine resting against his ribs, and he’s finally done running away.

    Summary

    Sequel to: oh mercy, I implore.

    On the inhale, James decides that this life—lazy Sunday mornings, the persistent smell of bergamot, ink dark skin under his mouth, and Q breath’s across his bones—is worth infinitely more than all MI-6 has to offer. On the exhale, M sentences him to certain death—months of deep undercover, endlessly dark days where Q’s voice won’t be in his ear, the post-Spectre tidying up that James thought they’d somehow avoided.

    Summary

    Fact: despite the overwhelming odds stacked against him, Tony is an incredible father, though he’ll be the last to admit that. Also fact: he occasionally leaves Peter in the doting care of his robots while he makes coffee, and Steve’s always wearing this obnoxiously fond smile until he realizes “care” means “in danger of exposed wires.”

    Summary

    Tony’s been stumbling his way through life for 45 years without any assistance, thank you very much, and he’d like to point out that forgiving the man who killed his parents is on the negative side of his to do list labeled NEVER. The problem is, they’ve got a few scars in common, and somehow they become little nightlights during each other’s darkest moments.

    Or, the story of how Tony and Bucky started out here: one broken nose, a few guns, several fist fights, sharp words, a heart attack, bruised jaws, and the definition of mistrust—and ended up here: an anchor in unsteady waters.

    Summary

    Q wonders, briefly, how James could possibly think this is an appropriate time to profess his undying love—or whatever the hell it is he’s attempting to do; though, frankly, the skeleton suit did make him blink a bit stupidly at his laptop—but then something explodes to his left, and Q heaves a long-suffering sigh and snaps at him for ruining everything good in the world. James laughs and carries on wielding his Walther like it isn’t the 7500th replacement that Q has thrown at him.

    Summary

    The setting, Tony decides, is perfect for a bad horror movie. Steve drags him along for a week into the wild because he’s friends with Thor, who’s friends with Clint, whose family owns a cabin in the woods. Tony hates all of them, particularly when they start dying.

    Summary

    “There are people here,” Bruce says, cringing. There are very few people he can tolerate—Betty, always; Peter, mostly; Wade, sometimes—and then Tony steps in, excited about Russian poetry and words that linger on his soul and James Joyce, and Bruce just doesn’t know what to do with him besides fall in love.

    Summary

    They move like magnets, pushing and pulling as they tear each other apart, discovering and exploring until they are a natural disaster on the brink of destruction, and then, like a calm before a storm, they begin to understand, and as they discover themselves, they learn how to be catastrophic together.

    Or, Steve and Tony are absolutely wretched at being secret boyfriends, so they learn how to be friends, and, somehow, they trip into love, stumbling through Steve coming to terms with being gay, Tony trying to hide his twisted life, and too much parties, sex, and yoga that any sane person would fall apart, and yet, here they are, magnets drawn together.

    Summary

    There have been two moments in his life when he couldn’t breathe because of Ian, because of how desperately he needed him to stay, and only one of those was he able to finally figure out how to keep him, how to hold onto him, and he thinks he knows now why Ian makes him breathless, makes his chest ache until he’s gasping.
