    Summary

    Steve's rarely been touched in a way that didn't equate to some kind of hurt. The cold metal of a stethoscope against his frail chest or the sting of a needle drawing yet another blood sample, when he was a sickly child. The bone-shattering punches thrown by the neighborhood bullies on the playground, or by his own father at home, drunk and wild. His mother, weak and clutching at him as she grew more incoherent with the drugs as the cancer ate away at her insides. Touch was something he shied away from, something he told himself he just didn't want.

    Except...he did. He just didn't know how.

    Until he finds a flyer for a local "affection and intimacy services" program.

    In which Steve learns how to become comfortable with touch, and there is one very good dog, and a slow-burn romance.

    Summary

    A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far a—

    Yeah, I know that’s not when it happened, but that’s how you start this kind of—

    I don’t know, do I look like George Lucas?

    No, he made the movie. No, it doesn’t have Kevin Bacon. Not everything has Kevin Bacon!

    Of course it’s still good!

    Fine, you dicks. If you think you know better than one of the greatest stories of the human race:

    A short time ago, in this galaxy...

    Summary

    Q rolled his eyes. “Oh, there are just bloody wheels within wheels to it, aren’t there, this kidnapping business? Really, you should give it up. You’re not cut out for it. Think about it, your first time out, and you pinch a national intelligence treasure and ask his MI6 boyfriend for ransom. It isn’t very promising, is it?”

    Summary

    If all of the myths we know are actually exaggerations of what really happened in Asgard, then what is the truth? Let us explore such things as why everyone thinks Balder is dead and why Loki gave birth to a horse.

    The ratings of each chapter will vary depending on the topic. Currently I have it marked as Teen to give me room to work, but I may change it if the topic merits it.

    Summary

    What Sherlock thinks is, On the day I die, be it in a dirty alley at forty or in my bed at eighty, the last thing I will remember is tonight, the way you looked at at me on the snowy pavement, cheeks pink with the cold, breath puffing in frosty white clouds, your heart in your eyes and snowflakes in your hair. I will remember that single perfect moment in my life, that moment I knew I had everything I ever wanted, and whatever happens next, I will die content.

    What he says is simply, "Marry me."
