    Summary

    The light is barely enough to encase the man lying next to him in a soft warm glow. It eases the divots of muscles cording themselves across his naked back. The torso goes on for days it seems, longer than Bucky’s, the muscles sinewy instead of bulky. A myriad of scars, scrapes covered in butterfly stitches, and bruises paint a portrait of a non-superhuman body that has seen too many battles. Bucky finds himself staring, fingers itching to soothe any lingering pain away.

    How is it that it all came to this?

    ~*~*~

    Or: The tale of how two slightly oblivious men wearing their hearts and their damage on their sleeves, who have zero idea of how the concept of liking another human being works, come to find comfort in one another. (With a little bit of help from Lucky, Nat, elevator rides, pizza, and a coffee addiction of course.)

    Summary

    The Koba warned the Porters of the ghost in the trees the day they arrived in the village. Jane and her father had spent three long weeks at sea, sailing first to France, then on to Africa and the Port of Boma, then three long days on the river to the Koba territory bordering on the jungle, listening by day to the raucous chorus of jungle birds and by night to the screams of hidden predators. Jane was ten, and tired, and overwhelmed by the hugeness of her new country, and more than inclined to believe what the villagers had to say.

    Summary

    Temptation was woven into Crowley stitch by stitch like a fine brocade; once, before the schism, before Heaven and Hell were even places, a seamstress had threaded temptation through him, laced desire and need and want and lust and love through his very core like She filled all her creations with various intrinsic properties. Larks can’t choose not to sing, and so too Crowley can’t choose not to sway his hips like that and lick his mouth with a tongue that seemed purposefully designed to instill sinful thoughts, and - dear God - tilt his head to the side and look at Aziraphale with those inviting, suggestive eyes that always seem to to say come home with me, angel, take my hand and let’s Fall together.

    Vignettes from 6000 years of pining, as told by Aziraphale.

    Summary

    There were drinks, coin flowing and though the villagers were a bit leary of his horns he was doing just fine. Of course he had to open his mouth for a pretty girl.

    She had been perched on one of the stools sipping a drink, and Molly’s eyes easily traveled lower, appraising her, and she even winked at him. He’d saddled up to her and remembered her first question.

    “Have you ever traveled with knights, ser bard?”

    Summary

    Stan had always hoped he could take solace in his conventionality. He wasn’t particularly tall or short, heavy or thin, brilliant or idiotic. Stanley Uris toed the line of average like an acrobat. In fact, the only remarkable thing about him was just how unremarkable he was.

    Richie had always been a little too sharp, a little too bright. He had an energy he never quite learned to contain and sensitivity he couldn't begin to control. He was cornered into a spotlight of scrutiny. With each step into greater success he stumbled further into his own demise.
