    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

    It is early September in New York City, 1934 and United States Marine Corps Naval Officer and Ship/Auto Mechanic, James Zuko awaits departure from the U.S.S Lexington sailing towards New York Harbour after almost four years of hard work in naval missions and training exercises on icy waters in the Atlantic Ocean and warm tropical Caribbean Sea.

    Experienced in Automotive, Naval and Marine Engineering as an alumni graduate of University of Chicago, James intends to return home on New York Central Railroad's 20th Century Limited from Grand Central Station to La Salle Street Station in Chicago City, Northern Illinois in Midwestern America on Friday, November 30th.

    Summary

    Bucky knew the apartment wasn't much to look at but, however old and rundown it might be, it was his.

    His apartment. His place. His.

    Unfortunately that also made the neighbour his neighbour. Bucky hadn't started out thinking that way. No, he'd originally been pretty happy about tall, blond, and built, with his sunshine smile and sparkling blue eyes, who lived down the hall. But that was before Bucky found out he was a creeper.

    (AKA homonyms are important and you can never have too many double single entendres.)

    Summary

    After his meeting, Frank keeps getting texts from the Liebermans about coming over for dessert. But is it a good idea? And can he resist them if it isn't?

    (AKA that one where Frank goes over to the Liebermans' after everything is done and probably never leaves.)

    (PTSD tag not because there's any explicit flashbacks or anything, but just because... like... Frank has it.)

    Summary

    The thing Widowmaker wants most is to spend ONE weekend at her estate, alone and able to sort through her thoughts. Maybe even relax, sleep in. That sort of thing.

    So of course her wanting those things was practically begging fate to fuck with her.

    For instance, it could begin with her finding Reaper chilling in her living room.

    Summary

    Your mid-twenties are as good a time as any to have a bit of a delayed breakdown. Maybe take up an interest in gardening. Maybe take up an interest in your arch nemesis..

    Harry isn’t sure what he’s doing; Draco has built a home and a business on the ruins of his old one and isolation; Pansy is back in town; Luna is dying her clothes with Parvati’s tea; Blaise is the most suave & handsome rock of a friend & business partner a partially exiled wizard can depend upon; Neville can never catch a good moment to have a chat with Harry but despite that is constantly changing the poor guy’s life and Hermione and Ron, well, just as always, thank Merlin for Hermione and Ron.

    It’s a gangs-all-here tale encompassing a little of that reassessment that happens when your pre-frontal cortex fully grows, a bit of dealing with matters from the past & their repercussions, a lot of the type of social events that everyone-you-ever-knew turns up to and far more discussion about soil quality than Draco appreciates quite frankly.

    Mainly Harry POV but some Draco POV
