    Summary

    Steve wakes up in the post-nuclear wasteland after 200 years of cryogenic sleep. The country he knew, the land he fought so hard to defend is simply gone. Bleary eyed and aching, Steve becomes entangled in the struggles of S.H.I.E.L.D., a fellowship of five settlements that have banded together for protection and survival. Nicholas Fury and Alexander Pierce recruit his aid for Project Insight, a mission to unearth and restore a powerful aircraft prototype, one that could forever ensure the security of S.H.I.E.L.D.

    With such firepower, S.H.I.E.L.D. could safely wipe out entire bands of raiders, mutated wildlife and ruthless raiders. Added to the mix is a merciless assassin shrouded in mystery. His eyes are blue and familiar.

    What other secrets lie beneath the wasteland sands?

    Summary

    A short, loosely twined series of ficlets about pre-serum Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes (and one that's post-serum but before CA:TWS).

    “Don’t listen to them. Don’t you EVER listen to them. You ain’t no queer.”

    Steve looks up at him, an odd expression on his face, rubbing his shoulder reflexively. “No. No. ‘Course not, Buck. Just ‘cause I live in your bachelor pad, and share a room with you…that don’t mean anything.”

    Summary

    Written for the Dean and Cas Secret Santa: Dean Barrow Winchester and Castiel Parker Novak are two of the most wanted in the USA. Told from the headlines, they were merciless murderers, bank robbers, and illicit lovers. But maybe the story was a different, more about a relentless love than Prohibition Robin Hoods.

    The Story of Bonnie and Clyde told with a twist.

    Summary

    Facilier does not have patience for fools, white people, or anyone who wakes him up before sunrise - unless they happen to have enough money to keep him fed for a month. And becoming a tour guide for some dumbass in a black coat can't be that bad, right? Why would he ever regret offering to show Luxord the places with the most heart in New Orleans?

    Summary

    “You don't really have the security clearance you need to pursue this. But there's only one word I could use to describe that man,” Clint said. “And that word is familiar. Natasha ever tell you anything about Budapest?”

    “I'm aware that Budapest is a place,” Steve said, “But I don't see-”

    “Steve,” Clint said, “Pepper's alive. You're alive. There are a lot of people alive, that... Well, it's counter intuitive. But Natasha agrees with me on this one. Budapest. I can't tell you anything more, I can't even tell you why. But I have seen that man before. He's not like what you told Tony, though. The man I saw was cold. Like he didn't have a soul.”

    Summary

    Lestrade considers himself an old, broken man, with little hope of finding happiness. Married to his work and divorced from a whore for an ex-wife, he's placed himself into forced exile from polite society, so there is little chance of remarrying. He is alone and left to pass the rest of his life arresting evil doers, protecting London, and running around after the Great Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. That's all that's left for him, isn't there? Not if he follows his heart, that seems to beat again with a flourish when he notices a similar feeling echoed in the eyes of a mousy, clumsy woman by the name of Miss. Molly Hooper. They start a courtship, and only one question remains: Is marriage the outcome? Stay Tuned...

    Molly Hooper always thought herself alone, exiled by choice to look after her father and keep the house for him, training to take over her father's coroner practice when he dies. She was on a path straight to spinsterhood, just like her Aunt Evelyn. But when fate sends her love in the form of a silver fox that goes by the title Detective Inspector, will she be able to grasp onto it? Will she fight for it when confronted by the scars life has left on him? What of his family's approval? Only fate knows...

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Second World War, Erik Lehnsherr -- survivor of Dachau, former resistance fighter in Occupied Europe -- joins forces with US intelligence to hunt down escaped Nazis. A sensitive mission in Rio de Janeiro calls for Erik to recruit a new operative ... one nobody is sure whether to trust. Charles Xavier is the stepson of convicted Nazi spy Kurt Marko, a rapidly worsening drunkard and a homosexual who hardly even bothers to hide his predilections. Hardly ideal.

    But Charles is the only person with any chance of getting close to Sebastian Shaw. The one man who might allow them to complete the mission.

    And although Erik's business is keeping secrets, Charles brings something out in him that he's worked desperately to hide --

    (Pastiche with Alfred Hitchcock's "Notorious." And now dedicated to the memory of the awesome Clawfoot Tub.)

    Summary

    _ Bucky, tu ne vas pas me croire ! Tu sais, le bureau de recrutement ? Eh bien…
    L’atmosphère changea du tout au tout, me poussant à m’interrompre. Le sourire de mon meilleur ami s’était évaporé, sa mâchoire était contractée et il se tenait raide, les poings serrés.
    _ Non ! Je refuse d’en entendre parler, je ne veux pas que tu le fasses.
    Sa voix avait claqué comme la gifle qu’il ne m’avait jamais donnée, froide comme le pire des hivers et d’une autorité tyrannique.
    _ J’ai passé la sélection.
    _ Oh non !ricana-t-il. Ça ne se passera pas comme ça !
    Il prit alors une goulée de la bouteille d’alcool qui pendait à sa main et que je n’avais encore remarquée. Je soupirais en comprenant de quoi il s’agissait.
    _ Tu es ivre…
