  2. Summary

    A series of Oneshots about the MCU Maximoffs varying from canon to canon-twisty to outright AU. All focus on the Maximoff twins, and on their relationship, interactions, complexities etc.

    As this is a collection of oneshots this doesn't contain any of my multi-chapter fics: The Cradle of Life, Like Home, And when the stars threw down their spears, the whole Memento Mori series, a blank slate or For Fear and For Vengeance. I do have multiple ideas for fics for the Maximoff twins, so this will probably be updated intermittently forever. Keep an eye out!

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There's something so wonderfully simple and direct about this fic and the character's voices are perfectly captured. A really lovely small snippet of a character study.

    Summary

    In one moment, James T. Kirk is the acting captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise, on his way home to Earth after stopping the Narada. In the next moment, without explanation, James T. Kirk is an Academy cadet on academic probation again, barely a day before Nero will destroy Vulcan.

    He dares himself to do better. And with a planet on the line and no proof but his own memories, he knows that "better" means he'll need some help.

    A truly delightful AU & Fix-it Fic that gives me A Lot of Extremely Good feelings. A reliable comfort-read, even though I barely even GO HERE (that is to say: Star Trek).

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Wonderful murder mystery funtimes! Plus the Snermione is minor enough I can largely ignore it and I'm able to really deeply enjoy the mystery, the general character interplay and the MURDER AT LAST OF BLOODY [REDACTED].

    Summary

    sleeper
    (noun)
    1. one that sleeps
    2. a person or thing that achieves unexpected success after an initial period of obscurity
    3. a spy planted in advance for future use, but not currently active

    When he sleeps, Harry dreams of another world - one that is both like his own and not, where the dead are alive, where history took a different course, and where Harry has friends in strange places.

    But where are the dreams coming from, and what purpose do they serve? Is the world they show Harry really a figment of his imagination? Can he stop the dreams - and does he really want to?

    Absolutely wonderful fic. Was not expecting dimensional travel to be done so well or with such humour. The OCs are fantastic, beautifully fleshed out and honestly, this was a delight to read.

    The thing about war is that it never ends. Not really. The battlefields just change locations. Harry and Ginny after the war. (Sequel to The Changeling)
