    OR

    Peter Parker was a good kid, the kindest, politest person you'd meet out there. He was also Spider-Man. Good old friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. He'd help old ladies cross the street, give directions, all that jazz. Ever since he'd become a known hero crime had gone down significantly. Peter was a good kid.

    Was.

    Summary

    When Gabe comes to, his whole body feels wrong. Gabe looks down at his chest, then blinks. He raises his left arm and stares at the tattoo on his forearm - a familiar sight, certainly, but it’s not his tattoo.

    ---

    An accident on a mission lands Gabe in someone else's skin.

    Summary

    It isn’t until he realises he can’t find the keys for his fucking truck anywhere and that there’s mail on the table addressed to Mr M Evans that Noah called him ‘Evans’, too. He fumbles inside the wallet that he’d managed to locate and pulls out a New Mexico licence with his picture on it; he doesn’t have a black eye and a split lip in this one, his hair’s tamed and he doesn’t look like he’s gone three days without showering. His date of birth is stamped, clear and correct, but then where his name should read ‘Michael Guerin’, it reads “Michael Evans’ and the address registered on the license is that of Max and Isobel’s childhood home. Noah had also said ‘your mom’s’. Not ‘Mrs Evans’.

     

    It feels like a bucket of ice water’s dumped over his head as he finally accepts that something is very, very wrong.

     

    (aka, the fic spawned from a tumblr prompt about Michael waking up in a parallel reality.)

    Summary

    Soulmate Marks.

    Spock's Soulmate Mark is bright golden fire.

    All Vulcans are basically flame in a way.. So it isn't hard for Spock to believe that maybe his Soulmate is T'Pring. Turns out he is wrong.

    Then he meets firey Nyota Uhura and as she shows definite romantic interest in him he thinks maybe it might be her. Wrong again.

    James T. Kirk's Soulmate Mark is pale blue ice.

    He believes his Soulmate will be harsh and cold with jagged edges. Everyone he's ever fallen in love with fit the bill, hurting him with their frigid abuses. Each time he was wrong, they weren't his Soulmate.

    Summary

    "There are only two questions that human beings have ever fought over, all through history. How much do you love me? And Who's in Charge?"

    Danzo finally has everything where he wants it. No more competitors, no more threats, and not even the Hokage stands in his way anymore, when something sends him back to the founding era of Konoha. All his work for the village is gone in one fell swoop.

    This does nothing to discourage him from starting his work all over again. He can't go into Konoha with his younger self there, and no connection to his clan, but he can start other places.

    Summary

    (We came, we saw, we loved.)

    Tony's not the hero type. To suggest otherwise would be outlandish and fantastic, clearly.

    Yet somehow, he's the one that's responsible for saving the universe. Now, he's a decade in the past. He's just revealed to the world he's Iron Man. Tony finds himself facing dozens of old problems, and as time passes the ripple effect of his presence generates ever more new issues.

    All the while, the impending threat of Thanos looms ever-closer.

    (Or: how I becomes we and Tony learns that not all burdens must be shouldered alone.)

    Summary

    The Commonwealth sprawls across several hundred light years. It is human civilization at its peak, where every citizen lives in comfort and the most beautiful things the galaxy can offer.

    The Commonwealth saves. The Commonwealth protects.

    The Commonwealth is crumbling. On its borders, war brews, a steady rumbling in the horizon. The qanfore are tired of human ambition.

    Kalinda Kaition is an agent assigned to the joint forward operating base Juhaniya, deep in Naga territory. Here, she must act as liaison between her employers and the generals in charge. Her job is further complicated by several things:

    1. she is not from this universe
    2. her best friend is possessed by the ancient spirit of a very angry goddess, and is currently being used as a weapon by the Commonwealth Navy
    3. her very much married doppelganger was double crossing everyone, including herself
    4. she has vague instructions to start a war

    Unfortunately, neither she nor her double were very good at following instructions.

    Summary

    It's fifty years after the downfall of Team Plasma, and fifteen-year-old Door Hornbeam hates what the Unova League has become. Instead of real pokémon, trainers capture robotic knock-offs, and instead of the freedom Hilda had, there are only safe routes and android caretakers called Companions ... which, incidentally, her family invented. But when she saves the amnesiac Geist from a would-be mugging, she's forced to undertake a journey and uncover a conspiracy involving her family, a robot-worshipping cult, and a long-dead scientific genius.

    Summary

    At sunrise tomorrow, Bucky knew he was going to turn into a rooster. He wasn't sure if it was better or worse knowing it was coming. What he did know was that it didn't matter where he slept: his room, Steve's room, Stark's lab—it was going to happen. The curse of the were-cock had struck and there was no escaping.

    As the elevator carried them back down to their floor, he started chuckling.

    Steve gave him a look of concern.

    Bucky waved it away. "Just thinking. Curse of the Were-cock'd probably make a lousy movie."

    Steve snorted, then said thoughtfully, "I don't know. Maybe it depends on what sort of movie you're making."
