    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

    After royally screwing up, Izaya is admitted to a behavior hospital by his parents, and given the ultimatum that this is his last chance. He believes them. So he promises to actually try to get better this time.
    All he has to do is avoid pestering his new therapist until he quits, not start wars in the ward, and refrain from antagonize any of the other patients. Which, for Izaya, is all easier said than done.
    Especially when some of the other patients on the ward are hell bent on making his life a living nightmare. One in particular.
    What's a mentally unstable, almost-adult to do? Besides avoid the resident sociopath, that is.

    Summary

    "You, my friend, are a Lost Boy. You'll never grow up. We will never be like them, we will never have to get jobs and get married and have a family because we're boys. We won't grow up. We'll stay forever this way."
    Felix smiles, and nods. He will always believe what his best friend says, forever—even if forever is an awfully short time.

    Summary

    Seokmin, Minghao knew with certainty, was a wood fireplace. Sturdy, and central to home. Golden, mesmerising in its joyous and evermoving grace, craved on a cold day. Humble and hearty and beautiful.

    In the same way, Mingyu was a firework. Illuminating, and all compasing. Overwhelming and stunning, and fiercely energetic. Captivating, and unique and colourful and uplifting.

    But on days where the cold seeped into his bones, the ligaments between becoming nothing but chilling loneliness, Minghao was simply unable to absorb their warmth.

    Summary

    He went back the only available seat next to curly haired guy. Stiles subtly cleared his throat. The guy was sitting in the aisle seat, wearing earbuds, looking at his phone, and his blue backpack was on the seat next to him. The only way it could be more clear that a seatmate was unwelcome was if he physically removed the window seat from the train.

    And, judging by the glare he was shooting Stiles, that option hadn't been ruled out entirely.

    "Can I sit here?"

    The guy pulled out one earbud, "What?" he asked.

    "Can I sit here?" Stiles repeated. The guy didn't move, and Stiles mouth ran off without him. "You know, common courtesy, shared space. All that."

    Summary

    “The universe,” Antok enunciates, “says that young Galra like us shouldn’t be messing with sentries. It’s unbecoming.”

    “Pfft. ‘Unbecoming’.” Macidus rolls his eyes. “What are you, a third-century princess?”

    Antok sighs again. A long, deep, suffering sigh.

     

    Or that Antok origin story we so desperately need.

    Summary

    To say he fell in love with him the first moment he set his eyes on him would be immoral.
    But not inaccurate.
    After all, he was but a short seven year old boy then.
