    Summary

    There can be worse things, Rey supposes, than being stuck in this English Romantic Poetry class. Professor Ren—or if you prefer, Professor Byron—is dark, moody, and mysterious. But they run into each other constantly, blessed by fate or sheer luck, and she can no longer deny that there's something inside of both of them that only the other can understand.

    Or: Romantic poetry and conversations over black coffee. Dark and light, parchment and leather, push and pull. A companionship borne through snippets. And eventually: how to face the past.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes has finally come home.

    A year and a half after the events on the helicarriers, desperate for a safe haven and a chance to finally rest, Bucky takes Steve at his word and returns to the dilapidated row house in Brooklyn where he and Steve once lived.

    Room by room, he slowly starts to fix up the house as he works on his own recovery, while Steve starts to circle closer and closer. It's not easy; it was never going to be easy, and as Steve and Bucky draw even closer to each other in their dance, there are new steps to learn and old wounds to heal.

    But nothing has ever been able to stop these two boys from Brooklyn, and as they start to share food, trips to Home Depot, late night runs and eventually laughter, it turns out that Bucky isn't the only one who needs help healing.

    That's only if Steve can get Bucky to believe in himself and the life they have started to build together, and convince Bucky to stay.

    Summary

    Stiles shows up where he wants, when he wants. And sometimes, that's Derek's loft. When he's not invited. "You have like no snacks here, dude." He slams the cupboard door and tries the fridge, but the story is the same.

    "I wasn't expecting company."

    Summary

    “I guess you’re wondering why I’ve gathered you here,” Danny said when the last Defender (Jessica, hungover) met him outside Matt’s apartment.

    “No, but I’m wondering how long until I can leave,” Jessica said. Claire handed her a takeout coffee and got in return a smile so genuine Danny was momentarily speechless.

    “Matt’s avoiding us, and I think we ought to remind him he’s not alone.” A kind of dubious look bounced from Claire to Jessica to Luke and back again. “So I think we should bring him, you know, some food.”

    “Like a casserole?” Claire said doubtfully.

    Summary

    A night out with your roommates' sorority sounded like a good way to wind down from exams season, but your good intentions to keep from ruining someone's nice carpet have you end up in the middle of the forest. In the middle of the night. Very, very drunk.

    Good thing you found a random house to sidle up to and ask to use their phone. Less of a good thing that the skeleton monster that lives in it is only placated by your sloppy jokes.

    -

    Eventually going to culminate in a "Six Skeletons" sort of set-up, but you don't get off as easy by knowing Classic Sans first.

    Summary

    They swear they don't know what gentleness is. Their hands are calloused, skin scarred, and their fingers only know to swipe and slice and strike - not caress, comfort, care. It doesn't matter, anyways. In a harsh galaxy, such softness is a weakness.
    They are wrong.
    In a cruel galaxy, small acts of kindness are grand acts of rebellion.
    It is softness that keeps them alive.

    Summary

    “On what planet, Hermann,” Newton groans, “is a tobacco run also a gelato run?”

    “You ridiculous man,” Hermann sighs, kissing Newton’s temple, “I’m offering you ice cream for breakfast. What’s so difficult about this?”

    “The part where you wanna smoke instead of eat something, but go to town, I guess?”

    [Directly follows Our Breath Will Still / A Short Distance Ahead and Tooth and Nail. From a Tumblr prompt.]
