    Summary

    "Remind me again why we're doing this?" Sam asked, feet up on the dash of the Quinjet. 

    "Because some girl made doe-eyes at Steve and asked for help and he can't say no to that," Bucky replied from the rear of the Quinjet. He hadn't been fast enough to call shotgun and he'd only just stopped sulking about it. Sam hadn't yet noticed the tiny balls of paper littering his hair.

    Steve rolled his eyes. "No, because she made a good point and she had a lot of well-researched evidence to back it up." 

    "Well-researched evidence based on a bunch of internet news stories about weird crimes, which clearly leads to someone summoning a demon who's going to destroy the world," Bucky said. "I love you, Steve, but you're so gullible." 

    When a PhD student accidentally uncovers a plot to summon a demon and destroy the world, Captain America is the only one she can get to listen to her. Steve, Sam and Bucky will fly half-way around the globe to investigate, but can they get there in time to stop the ritual and save the world?

    (All signs point to yes as an answer to at least one of those questions.)

    Summary

    Getting rescued from the sarcophagus that Grindelwald had stashed him in turned out to be a thoroughly uncomfortable affair, if only because Graves suspected that Tina would never let him forget it’d happened, ever. Of all the Aurors who could’ve stumbled over Grindelwald’s vault, did it really have to be her?

    Besides, Grindelwald hadn’t had that much time to make Graves’ said sarcophagus stay anything more than humiliating, unless his Grand Plan was to see how long Graves would take to die of boredom. Thankfully, Tina had found Graves before he’d gotten tired of grimly plotting Grindelwald’s murder. Unsettlingly enough, by all reports, Grindelwald had actually been credible enough at Graves’ soul-sucking time sink of a normal job that not even Graves’ closest minions had figured him out. Which meant that a) small wonder Grindewald hadn’t progressed his Plans of World Domination(?) further than aggressively stalking some poor kid and b) Graves clearly needed new minions.

    Summary

    Despite later claims by Porpentina Goldstein, the first thing that Newt Scamander, illegal magizoologist, actually said to Graves was “Oh. I really didn’t think that there were two of those.”

    Graves looked around quickly, wand cautiously raised. One of Grindelwald’s ‘silos’ of stored and mostly illegal paraphernalia had turned out to also include an acid-spitting two-legged ostrich-sized lizard, whose spit had dissolved, unfortunately, much of said illegal paraphernalia, a desk, several chairs, and Newt’s clothes. The lizard was asleep, bubbling gently beside the stairs, clutching the virulently pink flower bulb that Newt had thrown at it right before he’d been drenched.

    “Where’s the other one?”

    “No, no, I meant your coat,” Newt explained brightly.

    Summary

    Steve doesn’t like bullies, on principle. It's less about justice, or decency, or righteous indignation; more about the look in the eyes of the people getting stepped on, the people getting trampled, the people getting lost.

    So it cuts all the deeper, when Steve recognizes strength, precision, endurance, capacity: sees the pieces of himself not born but made, reflected in this body, this person, this weapon: the Winter Soldier.

    It slices through Steve’s soul when he returns the Soldier's gaze, and reads the only thing that lives in the deadness that pervades behind those irises in the night.

    It’s not You can’t beat me.

    It’s more You can’t stop them.

     

    For the prompt: The AU where Steve Rogers sees the best in everyone, and it is that quality that brings him back the person he loves most in the world; where Steve reaches out to help the Winter Soldier on principle, but when the muzzle-mask comes off, he finds Bucky Barnes.

    Summary

    Ryan wakes up because his phone rings. He mumbles something unimpressed to his pillow, groping on his bedside table and it takes a good thirty seconds to feel through the crap before he lands on his cell. and He only cracks open one eye to see the little blue box on screen that says Message: mphelps.

    Summary

    Ben's always been very responsible. He keeps his bedroom neat and tidy, he’s never late for class or practice, and he always turns his assignments in on time. He goes to bed at a decent hour, and he rarely parties.

    He’s certainly not the kind of person who purposely bombs a test in a pathetic attempt to get the attention of some guy.

    (Except apparently, he is.)

    Summary

    Bilbo felt exhilarated, like flying on an eagle without the fear of falling. It was more than the thrill of a tremendously good jig, or kissing cheeks with Daisy Cotton behind the Party Tree – more than stealing down a long dark tunnel to cross verbal swords with a dragon. Bigger than fear, warmer than sneaking unseen through goblin-tunnels with the aid of a magic ring, was this thing between them now, a handful of coals cradled close against the winter wind. Something precious, something lasting, if only they could take good care of it.
