    Summary

    Alternate Universe set Prewar, canon respectful if not really compliant. I'm moderating comments on this fic so new readers can avoid spoilers later on down the road.
    Nora Adams runs a small but succesful legal practice. The day after her triumphant win over the State in 'Massachusetts vs Silva' she gets a phone call from the DA's office, and events are set in motion that will turn her life upside down.

    Autumn is drawing over the city of Boston. The weather's getting colder, the cities hunkering down for the winter.
    It's been three years since the murders, and everyone has tried to move on.

    But, nothing stays buried forever.

    Summary

    “Did Leia send you?” Luke snaps, suddenly overcome with a bout of rage that he has to breathe deep to let go, to let it melt into annoyance and then null, nothingness.
    “I wish she had, but no. This is purely opportunistic.” There’s something else, something unsaid, behind those words. Something like I’ve been considering coming after you for some time now, but Luke knows he shouldn’t project like that. Part of him wishes someone would come after him, but Leia stopped sending people years ago. Everyone else knows he hasn’t gotten over Ben’s death, but he has yet to decide whether he’s gotten over it or not.
    “Eight years change a lot, huh?” they ask, sensing that Luke isn’t about to let up on his silence. Once again, there’s something unsaid, but this time Luke genuinely has no idea what it could be.

    Summary

    [«C’è questa cosa che fai» dice Alec, esasperato. «Questo potere che hai che ti fa sembrare indistruttibile».
    «Lo sai che non è vero» dice Magnus. Il suo respiro è caldo contro il mento di Alec.
    «Lo so» ribatte Alec. «Ma comunque… ci sono delle volte in cui non ne sono così sicuro».]

    1992, New York, una città che continua ad aggrapparsi a sentimenti venati dalle tensioni della Guerra Fredda. Alec Lightwood è un Corporate – un supereroe che lavora su commissione – cerca di barcamenarsi tra un’identità segreta, la necessità di aggrapparsi ad una parvenza di vita normale e il fatto che i vigilante continuano a comparire ammazzati nei bassifondi senza un’apparente spiegazione.
    Le cose non possono che peggiorare quando Magnus – un giornalista investigativo – inizia a rimuovere la maschera che Alec si è attentamente costruito… e poi c’è quel misterioso vigilante con il potere della psicocinesi che continua ad apparire ovunque Alec vada – Alec non riesce proprio a tirare il fiato.
    A Cold Night for Good Deeds è una AU sui superereoi, slow-burn e neonoir, che parla di identità, verità e innamorarsi senza conoscere il vero nome di una persona.

    Summary

    "You really have no idea do you?" She sounded more amused than upset.

    "No idea of what?"

    Sylvanas looked thoughtful for a moment and then pushed herself up. "That's for you to find out," she murmured playfully against my lips and slipped away before I could even attempt to deepen the kiss.

    Or

    Jaina FINALLY finds out Sylvanas's secret (and Sylvanas discovers Jaina's).

    (Takes Place After "Talk Dirty To Me" and before "I Like the Way".)

    Summary

    “What’s your name?” Steve tries, his grip on Bucky’s throat loosening and even turning into a gentle stroke like Bucky needs to swallow something. Bucky couldn’t agree more. Bucky is going to tell him—he is. He’s resolved to give up the ruse: admit that despite his upbringing in the R-12, he speaks City just fine. That the drugs he’s just tongue fed a stranger in a club are stolen from Alexander Pierce’s private stash and Bucky has no idea what they are about to do. There’s just something about Steve that compels Bucky to press against him and speak. Something about the way Steve’s eyes shine brighter than the ultraviolet LED strips lining the floor that makes Steve seem both other-worldly and solid. Under the full spectrum of light, the crisp trim of his beard is almost too precise and the blonde in his hair bleaches white. Bucky’s whole world narrows—throbs.

    The stranger—Steve—is just the kind of wholesome and wholesale danger that Bucky lives for.
