  3. Summary

    What do you do when the driving force in your life is suddenly just — gone?

    This series follows Chuck, Mako and Raleigh as they try to figure that out, each in their own ways, in the days following Operation Pitfall.

    A lot of fluff, a fair bit of angst, and the slowest of slow builds. Eventual OT3.

     

    This series is not, in fact, abandoned -- just on a very long hiatus. If you're reading and enjoying, please do leave a comment to encourage me to write more!

    Summary

    Neal came into Peter's office and closed the door after him. He seemed pensive. "Um, Peter?"
    "What?" Peter looked up, caught himself blushing, and looked back down at his paperwork. "What is it?"
    "Your wife just asked me out on a date," said Neal.

    Summary

    It didn’t escape him that Steve shared his assumed last name. “Are you gonna be my cousin?” Bucky asked dully.

    Steve frowned. “Husband, actually,” he said easily, holding up his left hand to show a typical golden band.

    Bucky scowled and closed the door.

    AKA
    An AU in which Bucky is put in the witness protection program and Steve is the agent hired to protect him/pretend to be his husband.

    Okay, "fake married for a long-term undercover mission oh no we're really in love" is my Very Favorite Trope. And this is the Platonic Ideal of that. Seriously. The characterizations, the plot twists, the fluffy fluff and the angsty angst, not to mention the way canon details are twisted to fit the AU 'verse — so well done. It's magnificent.

    Summary

    Over eighty years have passed since the Disaster that ended civilization and covered the world in a permanent layer of snow and ice. Humanity survived, if only barely, and have since then managed to recover a little of what it lost, building settlements and rediscovering technology to help them in their struggle. Every settlement relies on technology for their survival and the Engineers are the ones tasked with maintaining and building it, but despite their importance the Engineers are a dying breed.

    Jake and his sister live under constant threat of being kidnapped or enslaved for the skills they possess, so he has learned to be wary of strangers — Raiders in particular, who murder and steal without remorse. But that changes when he meets a Raider he can't quite bring himself to hate. Cougar is different, and causes a myriad of conflicting emotions that Jake would rather not feel to being with.

    But when it turns out that Cougar might be able to lead Jake to the key to humanity's continued survival he decides to embark on the biggest adventure of his life, trust issues be damned. It soon becomes obvious that it won't be an easy journey, for more than one reason.

    EDIT: 2016/06/01 - Added second bonus chapter

    Bookmarker's Notes

    An actual, full-length novel that does Cougar and Jensen better than the movie ever could. Damn near perfect.
