    Summary

    Shun and Yuya are alone in caring for their terminally ill younger sister, Ruri, after their parents disappear. However, when Ruri dies during a trip to the zoo, she is magically brought back to life by a mysterious hippo hat. The hat possesses her and orders the brothers to find the Hippodrum, if they want Ruri's miracle to continue.

    Although neither of them have any idea what the Hippodrum even is, there's no way they're going to let their sister die. Together, and along with a mysterious cast all tied together by the same long ago terrorist incident, they will search for the true meaning of the Hippodrum, and decide what it is that they want to protect most of all.

    Summary

    Bucky’s a block and a half away when he sees Steve — and it’s unmistakably Steve, all narrow shoulders and flailing fists and the 13-year-old adolescent rage he carries with him like a Roman banner — starting a fight with the O’Reilly brothers on the boardwalk along the East River. He speeds up his steps when he sees Steve land a solid first strike on Wally and get a fist to the mouth in payback. He breaks into a jog when Eddie grabs ahold of Steve’s arm, twisting it behind his back as he struggles, giving Wally the opportunity to land another hit to Steve’s face.

    He starts to run, to sprint, when Steve pulls away from Eddie, over-balances, and tips head-first over the curb and into the water ten feet below.

    Summary

    Ezra Lizard lives with his father - Cliff Lizard - on a boat. They rarely see other people, rarely step onto solid ground, and recently, rarely get anything done.

    By the time they find out, it's too late to go back.

    Summary

    Bubbles are everywhere. Flying off into the sky, bursting at a moments notice. They entrap, ensnare. The shine when the light hits them and there beautiful. But they burst. They disappear. They die. And with the people you love so far away, the people who don't know you love them, they can seem like bubbles. Untouchable, or they will burst. Or maybe they're trapped in their own bubbles.

    Summary

    “Far be it for me to suggest, but I can think of better ways for you two to resolve your tensions. And I think the root of the problem stems from the fact that you two both can, also.” Napoleon looked up, waiting to catch the result of his ambush on Illya’s face. “Though I know I venture my opinion at my own Peril.”

    The corner of his mouth quirks up, Napoleon clearly pleased with his own wit even though he does his best to hide his tally point against the edge of his glass.

    Illya’s mouth forms a thin line. He gets that it was meant to be a joke, but it is not funny. Nor are Napoleon’s other insinuations.

    “It’s ten in the morning, Napoleon,” Gaby protests. Too early for puns, or scotch.

    “Is it?”

    “Do you reach a point in your day when you stop drinking?”

    “Hmm. Do you reach a point in yours where you stop deflecting?”

    Summary

    "Joker was a Metaverse manifestation of what Akira longed to be: confident, competent, and courageous. He certainly felt none of the above as his body racked with muffled sobs in the dim, artificial glow of Leblanc’s patron bathroom."

    Akira's resilient, meticulous thinking had beared his weight for years. But every machine eventually rusts and he feels the acute oxidation seep through with the memories of The Interrogation. Dealing with his own shit had never been Akira's strong suit, but he must choose between a passive Enough or an affirmation of Willing if he wants to survive this. He has plenty of motivation between a found family, a sense of duty, and flowering affections.

    Right?

    Summary

    Alpha Moriarty found out Mycroft's deepest secret: he's an Omega.
    For some reason all he did was get him his suppressant pills and tuck him in with a blanket... and invite him to a jazz concert.
    sadly the Jazz date had to be rescheduled...but business comes first
    Follows directly after Complex Like Math, Smooth like Jazz (and will make more sense if you read that first although there is a slight recap)
