    Summary

    Stiles' uncle is Captain America, his father is the town Sheriff, and now his best friend is a werewolf. With threats coming from three different directions, it's no wonder Stiles is so used to danger.

    He hadn't expected getting too used to it.

     

    That was probably why he was so blindsided when he found Captain America #1 in one of the boxes of old books. He traced the bowdlerized Bucky on the cover, and snorted at the cheesy cover with Steve punching Hitler in the face.

    Stiles remembered Steve talking about the shows and how the act included punching Hitler in the face. Mostly from Steve talking about the actor who played Hitler. As the only two men in a show otherwise made up of USO chorus girls, they'd been tight.

    Most of the time, Steve was just Steve Rogers, Stiles' adoptive grand-uncle, the extended family Stiles never even knew he wanted. It always felt like a punch to the gut every time the universe reminded him that his uncle was also Captain America, the First Avenger and a Hero of New York.

    Summary

    [In military science, Force Multiplication is an attribute or a combination of attributes that multiplies the effectiveness of a soldier or weapon, giving a small number of troops or individuals the ability to accomplish greater tasks than without it.]

    Jack Morrison is 26, just completed the first half of his Special Forces "Q-Course," and just got airdropped to a secret base in the snowy mountains of Idaho along with the other "supersoldier candidates."

    [Common force multipliers are: terrain, geographical features, weather]

    He doesn't really know how to feel about his new "number" (76) or the fact that he's joined a program that will "genetically and phenotypically modify him, as well as train him extensively, to survive better against the bots."

    [Training and experience]

    He never thought he was particularly "special" (though he'll be the first to admit he's always hoped for an adventure worthy of legend).

    [Tactics and intelligence]

    And he thought SEP would just be more training

    [Morale]

    Until he met "Soldier: 24"

    [Friends]

    Gabriel Reyes

    [Inspiration]

    And Jack experienced a revelation

    And they changed the course of history.

    Summary

    Family Feels, Unexpected Parallels, and Grand Uncle Bucky.

    In his youth, Steve Rogers had been all but adopted by the Barnes family. After waking up in the 21st century, Steve goes looking for the last Barnes descendent: Stiles Stilinski. 70 years and three generations later, the family tradition of taking in strays still runs strong. It's a brave new world of superheroes and supernaturals that Steve and Stiles are both discovering - and trying to survive.

    These are the (mis)adventures of the Barnes/Rogers family, the Hale/McCall Pack, and whatever their enemies try to throw at them. Pack is more than blood or bite, a team is not just the people you save the world with, and family is beyond the dictates of DNA. They are the people who you'd go down in flames for, who will always be by your side, and who you've still got at the end of the line.

    It turns out Steve and Stiles have more of that than they ever imagined.

    Summary

    “Derek, meet Stiles, your new bodyguard,” Talia says.

    Derek doesn’t get up. He’s frozen to his seat on the couch, staring at the man who will now be hounding his every step. “What’s a Stiles?” he asks dumbly, finally budging when his mother smacks him on the shoulder.

    “That’s Chief Stiles to you,” his mother says, scolding him. Derek huffs in annoyance, wondering how this could possibly get worse. “Senior Chief Stilinski is a Navy SEAL, Special Operations Forces, and has been handpicked by me, out of several hundred options. You will treat him with respect and do what he says.”

    “I’m a grown man, Madam President,” Derek says through clenched teeth. “You can’t expect me to listen to this guy. I don’t know anything about him."

    Summary

    Bright eyed and opportunity seeking weren’t the words to describe Arthur anymore. He had hit the pinnacle of youth before anyone else he knew, and in a profession like his, he’s already aged over two centuries in the last 8 years. But a trip to a local hair salon makes him open himself up to another misfit of age like himself.

    Summary

    I’ve been having trouble motivating myself to write. Not because I don’t want to, but because once I finish a fic, I have a hard time getting going on the next thing and accepting that it may not be done for a while. Or may not go anywhere at all.

    So inspired by an artist I recently heard speak, I’m going to try this: pulling a random prompt from an online generator every morning and running with it for 25 minutes. That’s it. As the artist said, creativity is a muscle and these little guys will be my morning workout--a mimosa for my addled brain to get it up and going before I head into work--the results of which I’ll post here.

    Summary

    In The Avengers, Natasha Romanova says "Love is for children." It's an expression of life as she knows it, and fits the harsh background most of the Avengers have experienced. Trouble is, people don't do very well without love. In particular it's impossible to form a good team if the members don't care about each other.

    So Phil Coulson comes up with a teambuilding exercise to resolve that problem. If love is for children ... then he'll arrange that experience for them. The result is an exploration of nonsexual ageplay to allow a group of very powerful, very broken people to patch up some of the gaps in their lives.

    Most of the stories are very sweet in tone and make for good comfort reading. However, canon gives these characters some very unpleasant pasts, and that comes up as they process the aftermath. So the tone does vary, and some stories are more intense than others. They deal with different characters, relationships, and sensitive issues.

    Some folks have avoided this series for fear that it goes into sexual territory; it doesn't. Same with embarrassment, very low on that.

    Summary

    Bucky clapped him on the back in commiseration. "You really gotta tell him, man. All of this pining and sexual tension's not good for your mojo."

    "Wouldn't do any good." Steve lifted his head. He was going to have jerk off material for at least the next year just from the memory of Thor's treasure trail disappearing under the white of his towel. "He's still not into guys."

    "Maybe he's hetero-flexible, you don't know."

     (Modern Day AU where Steve & Thor & Bucky all served in the military together and Steve & Thor are now roommates.)

    Summary

    Sergeant James “Bucky” Barnes had been a soldier, and a damned good one, until everything went to hell behind enemy lines, and his squad was captured. But it wasn’t the injuries he'd sustained or the long recovery that had changed his life forever. It had been the man who'd rescued him, a savior he'd never forgotten. And one he still hadn't had the courage to find and properly thank.

    Until today.
