    Summary

    weird one: WHEN I SAID I WANTED MY OWN STORY
    weird one: I DID NOT MEAN ENEMIES TO LOVERS ARC

    main character: oh gosh
    main character: WAIT WHY IS THIS MY NAME

    grampa: Sigh. 

    Tis the season of hallmark, snowball fights, and cheesy bs that could only work in a romcom or on Christmas.

    Pluto starts a scented candle cult, Ty realizes people like him, Sammy doesn't understand straight people, and Wilbur falls in love (and hates it.)

    Lauryn questions going back to pretending she hates everyone so she doesn't have to put up with this nonsense, and Lanston and Maya needs their loved ones to start loving themselves too godamnit.

    Alice found a new drug and it's called watching the trainwreck of her brother's enemies to lovers arc, Claire is trying her best to be supportive but even she finds it a little funny, and Cody is...genuinely considering trying to learn how to hibernate. Listen, between school, his fucked up sleep schedule, and the annoying hot guy and his equally annoying sisters, it's a wonder he hasn't entered a half stress/half caffeine addiction induced coma already.

    This is all technically Jayde's fault.

    Summary

    Just before Christmas, Sam's boyfriend Steve does the unexpected and asks him to join him in New York to meet his former unit and the guy they rescued together - otherwise known as his family. It seemed like a great idea until Sam discovered something: Steve hasn't told them he was bi, let alone that he'd been in a relationship with Sam for a year.
    As Sam starts to see that the Steve he loves might not be the real Steve at all, he finds himself serendipitously running into the same guy around New York over and over again. Which might have been something to laugh off if it wasn't Steve's ex, Bucky.

    A Happiest Season flavored holiday fic.

    Summary

    Steve is a straightlaced, by-the-book Army captain with a chest full of medals for service to his country. Bucky is a freewheeling trust fund kid who (seemingly) lives to party and sponge off his billionaire dad. They’ve hated each other the few times they’ve met at parties; now they’re stuck together in Tony Stark’s tiny, remote lake cottage in the Adirondacks during a freak spring blizzard.

    Summary

    Given that it's the fucking modern era, you would think Jrusar would have, you know, updated their accessibility laws. And installed ramps in the Core Spire. And implemented socialized healthcare. And fixed the cable car system, because they've been kicked off two cars mid-transfer in the past month because they couldn't take FCG's wheelchair.

    Go figure, Ashton thinks. If anything is worth doing, it's worth doing yourself.

    [Modern AU - No Magic/Human - In which our group of fuck-ups meet up, hang out, start a cripple punk group, fall in love a little bit, and fight a world that would rather see them dead.]

    Summary

    “-see that? Really, what kind of bumbling idiots does this place have? How long can it possibly take you to choose between a sad salad and a pathetic one?”
    Mobius blinks, looks to his right. Had he been unsure that the two standing there are the ones talking about him, the way the raven-haired male points right at him while the taller one with the golden hair looks down at him in faint disapproval would do the trick.
    “Um, excuse me?” Both parties turn to him as he addresses the one with the finger, his friendliest smile in place as he takes in the unknown students. The transfers Ravonna mentioned, most likely, though the brothers don’t look anything like each other. Maybe that has something to do with the pitying look on the ridiculously tall one’s face while the one that’s just plain tall glares at him. If anything, Mobius’s grin only brightens. “I couldn’t help but overhear you talking, and I was wondering- in your opinion, which one is the sad salad and which is the pathetic salad?”

    Summary

    "- Nekem nincs olyasmim, amire ilyen elszántan akarnék emlékezni.

    Így volt ez azóta, hogy az eszét tudta. Mindig csak nézte, akár egy kém a fal mögül, ahogy mások véresre csikarják körmüket, úgy kapaszkodnak egy arcba vagy egy pillanatba, és örömmel nyújtott nekik ebben segítséget. Átformálta és megfoghatóvá tette a megfoghatatlant, tintába foglalta azt, ami másként elszállt volna. De mi jut neki? Ő miért küzdjön?

    - Nem tudom, lehet-e egyáltalán."

    Albedo alkotói válságban szenvedő tetoválóművész, aki egy jóbarát tanácsára elmegy szimbólumokat keresni. A szalonnal átellenben nyíló virágüzlet - no, meg a növényeket gondozó különös, félszemű alak - tökéletes lesz. Ám az emlékek súlyára, és a tényre, hogy akikkel létrehoztuk őket, esendőek, még nemigen készült fel.

    Summary

    “You should wear it down.”

    She couldn’t keep her fucking mouth shut. She thought they beat it out of her during the training but apparently not. Apparently one look at blonde hair and blue eyes - one moment alone with Adora again and she’s a kid running her mouth in the orphanage. Where they said she was ‘troubled’, not yet psychotic, where she was just glad to be around her when she could've been starving out on the streets.

    And now Adora is hunting her down. Or at least the version of her that was in that hospital with the contact lenses and wig; the character she made that caused a bloodbath. She wasn’t meant to do that, she’s usually clean, calculating and quiet. Usually it wouldn't matter but her orders were clear: make it look like a suicide. Hordak will have her head for this but he hasn’t scared her since she was sixteen years old and shaking from her first kill.
    The Horde can’t afford to lose her. They can easily clean up the mess she made, the one she’s been telling herself was for fun, that it wasn’t because for the first time in a decade she really, truly felt something. Adora did always have that effect on her.

    Summary

    “You can crash here for the night, you know,” Sam says. “I don’t hate you enough to send you all the way back to Brooklyn in the rain.”

    "Queens," Bucky says. Sam quirks his head. "Looked for a place in Brooklyn, but I couldn’t afford anything there without Steve."

    "I don't hate you enough to send you back to Queens, then. Get comfy or don’t, up to you.”

    “Thanks,” Bucky says, and his smile is so soft it almost reminds Sam of-

    Nope. Not going there, not today, not ever. Sam brings out some soft goods, puts a Motown mix too loud on his headphones, and deep-cleans the kitchen while Bucky makes up the couch.

    Or: The one where two veterans on the run from their issues come crashing headfirst into each other.
