    Summary

    The Reader works at Sorrento's, a pizza place that is open late and sees its fair share of New York's finest heroes. Peter Parker is a regular known for coming in dirty and beat up just before closing time. When his Spidey sense tells him that danger is right around the corner he offers to walk you home- a budding, shy and awkward romance begins. This story features thrilling action sequence similar to some of the character's storylines in the comics but the reader views these events in the periphery as she struggles to start her Journalism career. Meanwhile as her soft romance with Peter Parker plays out in a similar vibe to that of an indie movie romance- she has yet to discover that Peter's secret might be her biggest story and a ticket into the competitive field. (The title is a fun play off of the Belle and Sebastian song, "Piazza, New York Catcher" and thus all chapters are named after Belle and Sebastian songs which very much fits the tone of the story)

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is a man with a lot of secrets: he is a member of the elite Avengers squad; he is 100 years old; for 70 years, he was HYDRA's weapon, carrying out countless acts of horrific violence whilst under their control.

    Nevertheless, despite his dark past, he is trying to move on with his life, working hard as a SHIELD agent and even developing a relationship with Tony Stark, a fellow SHIELD agent who heads up the R&D division of the Tech department.

    All seems to be going well, until a security breach at SHIELD threatens to expose Bucky's past as HYDRA's secret weapon. With one SHIELD agent already murdered by the mystery thief, it is a race against time to find the individual responsible and put a stop to their sinister campaign. Just how long are Bucky's various secrets going to remain secret...?

    Summary

    “Peace. It is a providence, and no great change; we are only what we always were, but naked now.”
    ― Arthur Miller, The Crucible

    Broken men become whole again, yet their scars remain. An imagining of the Shimada brothers, their confidants, and how the fallout of the Hanamura incident has never truly settled. In less flowery terms: after the fall of Overwatch but just before the Recall, McHanzo and Genyatta work through trauma. A slow-burn angst fic (with, of course, bits of fluff and comedy) featuring a lot of flashbacks to Blackwatch era, childhoods, Reyes being an ass, and BROTP!McGenji.

    Don't worry — there'll be a happy ending.

    Summary

    Midoriya's sweat drops, how intimidating. “I’m sorry for constantly bothering you about this, Sir—”
    “Todoroki.”
    “Yes, we’re thankful. … Wait, what?”
    “Todoroki,” He repeats. “My name.”
    “Oh…” Midoriya says dumbly. He can talk.
    “I heard you guys call me as 'the Customer' and 'Mister Half-and-half'.” He can talk more. “I would prefer if you call me by my given name instead of monikers that make me sound like a villain or something.”
    “I don't think the name, ‘Todoroki', sounds like a villain's name.”
    Todoroki deadpans. “… I meant 'the Customer’.”
    There was a long pause.
    “Oh,” Midoriya says once more unable to create a coherent reply.

    A story about a waiter with a past, a man hoping a future as an author, a Café with a story, lives intertwined.

    Part 1 of the "Brightest Light / Darkest Shadow" Duology
    This fic was inspired by the sweet real-life relationship between Millie Bobby Brown and Matthew Modine and I thought it'd be a fun premise to explore.
