    Summary

    It's said that every soul is connected to another by a red thread, and that these two souls are destined to meet. The thread, though it may tangle or stretch, will never break. That's not your experience, lucky or unlucky enough as you are to see the strings that bind people together. A red thread is developed and grown, not born, and you've worked hard to weed out any semblance of crimson that might cling to you. You pay your bills, you keep your head down, and you find whatever lost people or items you're hired to sniff out.

    Then the Devil of Hell's Kitchen tags along on a job, and your plan falls apart.

     

    Starts prior to Into the Ring, and loosely follows the canon timeline. There will eventually be smut, so enter at your peril.

    Summary

    Hydra worked out that they could manipulate the Winter Soldier more effectively if there were rewards as well as punishments, especially if those rewards were delivered by a blond man called Steve. Despite the large gaps in his memory, the Winter Soldier becomes aware that the more recent Steves are not the real Steve. The real Steve is long gone, replaced by a string of phonies.

    He thinks this new Steve won't be any different from the others he vaguely remembers, but this new Steve doesn't seem to know the correct protocols. This new Steve has no clue what he's doing. It doesn't take the Winter Soldier long to realise that he doesn't want this Steve to be his handler, but he can't refuse his assigned handler, even if Sam would be much more effective.

    Summary

    What, outside of the famed Parker luck that Peter has become painfully familiar with, can explain his disaster of a life?

    Confidence hadn’t kept his parents’ plane from falling from the sky. Preparation hadn’t stopped the copper bullets from ripping through the flesh of his aunt and uncle, tearing Peter for the second time in his short life from the people tasked with taking care of him.

    Out of the hundreds of New York foster homes, Peter has the delightful opportunity of being placed into a house where the air is constantly thick with tension, the foster father a venomous snake, lurking for what seemed to be hours in an eerie calm until it's finally time for him to strike.

    ---

    Peter has to navigate the events of Spider-Man: Homecoming while having Thaddeus Ross as a deadbeat foster parent. Can Bucky's help finally break Peter out of the cycle of dead, absent, and abusive adults that he's found himself trapped in?

    Summary

    SHIELD never find Captain America.

    But one spring, the Valkyrie melts anyway, and Steve Rogers wakes up in the ice, alone.

    ———————————

    He tried to move – and it burned. There was fire wrapping around his body, dragging cold tongues of pain across every inch of him. There was nothing but the screeching pain and the blackness and the silence -

    He breathed, and choked, because his lungs were full of ice.

    Water trickled delicately from his nose, dribbled over shrivelled lips. He jerked reflexively, throat cracking free from frost. He tried to gulp, tried to swallow, tried to snatch at air.
