    Summary

    The Deputy was charged with finding Jacob Seed and ending his reign over the Whitetail Mountains. But Jacob is charming, in his way - not with Joseph's golden tongue or John's allure, but with strength and loyalty - and the Deputy is far from unaffected. She has her own wit, however, one Jacob never anticipated, and they have more in common than they realize. These two old soldiers might wage war against each other, but how much longer can they pretend they don't see themselves in one another's eyes?

    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

    Peter traced his hands over the small sketch of a Daisy in the corner of the lined paper.
    “It appears I have made a new friend.”
    “Oh.” Chris hummed. Draping himself over Peter's back. His lips brushed Peter's neck and he tilted his head agreeably inviting further exploration.

     

    When young 2/LT Stilinski starts writing Chris after serving with him, both he and Peter have no idea how this will change their lives forever.

    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

    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

    He wasn’t going to do it again. He wasn’t going to let another date look at him in horror. Derek refused to be seen as a freak. He was just going to find a new job, move out of his parent’s house, and die alone.

    “Just one more date Derek, please!” Laura begged, following him down the stairs and waving her phone at his back.

    “I said no! You don’t know what it’s like,” Derek muttered, suddenly defeated.

    “I know babe,” Laura told him, coming up to wrap an arm around her little brother, standing up on her tippy toes until she could lay her head on his shoulder. “But look at this guy. He’s gorgeous.”

    Derek couldn’t resist a quick glance at the dating app. Damnit. Laura was right, as always. The guy was gorgeous. A mole dotted face with an adorably upturned nose smirked at him from behind a pair of square framed glasses, and he could feel his resolve crumbling.

    Summary

    A new prosthesis, a new job, a new team... Shiro might've found a place he belongs, where he can settle down and get his life together. Too bad that's exactly when he meets the one person who'll turn it all upside-down again.

    "This is Dr Shirogane," Allura tells the gathered teams. "He teaches physics at the university."

    Shiro can feel his ears getting hot. He's wearing jeans and biker boots, for christ's sake. It's his day off. At least she keeps the introduction simple. If she goes into a recitation of his speciality, he's ready to diffuse the confusion with a joke about studying rocket science. It's one of the only benefits after so many sleepless nights writing his dissertation.

      Bookmark Notes:

      The line goes silent, Colleen's version of skepticism. He can almost see her, stopping mid-pace in the middle of her office, hands on her hips.

      "Not yet," Shiro whispers. "I can't. I got hired to work on this project—"

      "It's not the only thing they want you for, or they wouldn't have fought so hard to get you."

      "I told him about the accident," Shiro says.

      Colleen's inhale is audible. The Holts had been there for all of it, and they knew better than anyone how private he was about that pain.

      "It's so easy to talk to him. I don't know why." Shiro sighs and pours out the entire story. His mistakes, Keith's anger, Shiro's apology and offer to start over. "And then we just kept talking. About everything."
