    Summary

    Greta snorts, “If you care about my comfort, Alucard, tell your friends you’re in love with them. Maybe there’s room for a third in their bed.”

    Alucard hasn’t named what he feels when he looks at Sypha and Trevor. The only part he’s confronted is the unflattering, gnawing jealousy at the ease they have with each other. 

    “I’d never come between them.”

    “Oh, I think that’s exactly what you want to do,” Greta says, “and please don’t miss the innuendo there.”

    Summary

    What if Satin, dressed in finery, draped himself next to Jon and whispered saccharine words into his ear? What if he giggled at the right moments and fed Jon bites of fruit and pastries? These women weren’t so different from him, after all.

    Jon would probably still be happier if Satin was far, far away.

    Summary

    Bucky enjoyed his life, travelling from town to town, making a living from his minor magic. He’d been following the same route for a few years and hadn’t expected much to come of changing his routine.

    He sure hadn’t expected the short, skinny blond to plant himself in his path as he walked into Briartown, give him the coldest glare out of the bluest eyes he’d ever seen, and say, "I know you're following me. It stops now." He glanced at Bucky's metal arm before glaring straight into his eyes. "Whatever you want I'm not gonna give it to you. So go back to whoever you came from and leave me alone." He paused, clearly waiting for a response, but Bucky had nothing and the guy turned on his heel and walked away.

    Bucky stared after him. Baffled. He felt like he should be angry, maybe, being accused of something he hadn't done, but he was too damn confused to get there.

    In which Bucky meets Steve and Steve meets Bucky and magic happens.

    Summary

    “We’ll go there one day,” Bucky adds a moment later, back to his bright self again, grinning, cocky. “All those fucking places with all that fucking art. You can tell me all about it. Paintings and sculptures and all that crap.”

    A chronicle of looking at art across the decades, and two birthdays.
