    Summary

    Sam Vimes' life is perfect. He has his dream job, financial security, colleagues/friends who get him, and a loving family. However- there had to be a however, otherwise what's the point in writing this?

    Let's put it this way, it's easier to think of this as a story about a man coming to terms with the fact that he loves another man and all the consequences this entails.

    If you're looking for a conflict free, everyone is in love story, I'm afraid, you need to look in another trouser leg of time.

    Summary

    Quite by accident, Vimes finds Vetinari in a bit of a predicament as he negotiates with some "foreign ambassadors". Unfortunately, it's not the sort of predicament that one necessarily escapes unscathed. Vetinari is predictably Vetinari about it all, and Vimes just doesn't hold with that sort of thing.

    Summary

    Steve has his life in order, okay. He goes to wizard college, even if he can't technically do magic. He has his own apartment, even though it's small and dinky and kind of gross, and forgets to exist sometimes, and might also be alive? Plus, he has a crush on the hot cyborg in unit 404 who cooks fiendishly good breakfast foods, and may or may not have some kind of weird connection to the sentient building they live in. He's not sure.

    He's dealing, all right, his life is in tip-top condition, or it was until an eldritch monstrosity called the Hydra started posing as a real estate company to try and buy over his new home.

    He's really pissed about that.

    (The one where Steve is an angry millennial wizard, Sam is a Disney prince, Natasha is a shapeshifter, and Bucky is a spoiler.)

    Summary

    Bucky said, “I think he’s too nice for me.”
    “Barnes,” Natasha sighed, “are you really trying to talk yourself out of dating Steve?”
    “Well, I… don’t think we’d be compatible.”
    “How do you know that?”
    “Cause he’s all… he… y’know…”

    He’s too good for me.

    Or:
    Bucky Barnes finally realises that bad boys are no good, so he ditches them and dates the nice guy instead.
