  1. Summary

    Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
    Old Time is still a-flying;
    And this same flower that smiles today
    Tomorrow will be dying.

    -- Robert Herrick, "To the Virgins: To Make Much of Time"

    A series of vignettes set during World War II, in which Steve and Peggy (and Bucky) actually seize the freaking day instead of waiting.

    Summary

    “No,” Jaskier sighed. “This is the thing, Geralt. I’m middle-aged and tired and I just think I’d rather meet death sitting down and facing it rather than from behind while I’m running. You know?” He contemplated that a moment, and finally added, “Especially if it’s you.”

    Set after the end of season 1.

    UPDATE: The Fat Baby song in chapter 7 now exists here as composed and recorded by @fannishliss and is BRILLIANT.

    See Series Notes on this series for a list of all the fics and what chronological order they go in, as well as recommended reading order if you're into that, just so you know what you're getting into here.

    Summary

    After the Battle of Crait, the survivors take refuge on Naboo. Poe needs time to figure out his new place in the Resistance - and how to handle his inconvenient crush on Finn.

    ‘Okay,’ said Finn, rubbing his hands together. ‘You know about, like, romance, right?'

    ‘Yes,’ Poe said firmly, because he was thirty-two years old, and compared to someone who’d been a Stormtrooper for most of his life, he did know about romance. Definitely.

    Summary

    David has thus far refrained, with difficulty, from commenting on the flashlight (he may have mentioned the bears) but he is beginning to suspect that the awful chunky boots and the pocketknife Patrick always seems to have handy are just scratching the surface when it comes to his outdoorsiness. David hasn’t seen a pair of cargo shorts yet, but they haunt his dreams like a khaki Sword of Damocles.

    Summary

    Wings on a human? Incorrect.

    David Rose had them anyway, at least sometimes. But given that he loathed them all the time, with every luxuriously moisturized cell in his body, he did whatever it took to keep them hidden away. It hadn’t even been particularly difficult—at least, not until Patrick Brewer started looking.

    Summary

    Aziraphale has certainly dabbled in the world of carnal delights over the years, most notably in the late nineteenth century, when a certain infernal adversary was enjoying a century-long nap and seemingly the only way to pass the time had been to develop some hobbies.
