  1. Summary

    Raphael Khan is never going to attend Stanford if they let their family force them into an arranged marriage after their graduation. Sam Winchester is never going to attend Stanford even with a full ride scholarship if he doesn't figure out additional financial aid in a hurry. Gabriel Kahn thinks he has the solution to both his cousin's and best friend's problems. It turns out to be even better than any of them thought.

  5. Summary

    Reluctant drifter Sam Winchester fell fast and hard for Jimmy Novak, the motorcycle-riding bad boy of Normal, Illinois, with a heart of gold. Telling Jimmy that his Dad was moving them again and it was over was the second hardest thing Sam had to do, the hardest being leaving Normal behind the very next day, not knowing whether Jimmy was even alive. Haunted by visions of Jimmy going up in flames, even though Sam never saw the accident in person, the Stanford Honors student and burgeoning novelist starts writing letters to Jimmy's ghost and sending them to his last known address. It's a brand new chapter when Jimmy writes him back.

    Summary

    The world keeps pushing him, demanding, because what he did wasn't enough. Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, but that wasn't enough, wasn't ever enough.

    Tony Stark was tired. But he had a planet to protect, even if everyone laughed at him whenever the prospect of alien invasions was brought up. He could count on one hand how many people he could trust, which was disheartening but then, what else was new?

     

    Or,

     

    In which Tony does not, in fact, intend to take over the world.

    ...unfortunately, everyone else missed that particular memo.

     

    [gradual divergence from canon, starting at the end of Iron Man 3. In which it's Tony's self-awareness, rather than his support system, that becomes a cryptid sometime during Phase II.]

    Summary

    What if Tony decided in Siberia that he couldn't just go home? He was used to being the scapegoat, but this time the cost would be more than he could pay.

    Ross would have the ammunition he needed to get Iron Man under his control, and what he'd do with the tech didn't bear thinking about.

    Tony decided to use Protocol Pass The Torch. He'd be fine. A penniless fugitive's life would make a nice change of pace. Everything would be peachy keen.

    (Tony miscalculated the pull the world had on him. He also miscalculated how many people would join him. Ultimately, Thanos underestimated him.)

    Summary

    There’s a sort of poetry to the pain that lances through him. A sort of slow burn that is usually associated with strong alcohol and certain types of recreational narcotics. It radiates out from his chest. Throbbing through him in pulses every time his lungs expand. He can feel the sharp spines of gold-titanium alloy digging into his flesh. The crackle-shift of broken ribs moving into places they shouldn’t be.

     

     

    He's going to die this time. He can feel his extremities getting colder, heavier. Knows that the armor is only slowing the blood loss, not stopping it.

     

    Tony Stark is left to die in a bunker in Siberia. His family doesn't like that at all. As they rally around him, so does the rest of the world, forcing the Rogue Avengers to face the consequences of their actions.

    When Bucky's awakened after his brief stint in the cryotube he's thrown back into a world where he must realize that those he might have believed once aren't what they seem.

    Summary

    “This job... we try to save as many people as we can. Sometimes that doesn't mean everybody. But if we can't find a way to live with that, next time... maybe nobody gets saved.”

    At the end of the day Steve did save everybody. He saved Bucky from Tony, his team from the government, the world from the Sokovia Accords. Some time would probably have to pass for things to blow over, and then everything would go back to normal. Couple of days. Tops. After all Team Cap saved everybody, showing the world how dangerous the accords were, how easily they could be abused. Even their supporters had to come to their senses now.

    Yet five days after Siberia nobody feels safe. Things don’t calm down and suddenly it’s again Steve against the rest of the world. Only now it’s not some international organisation or government but the people. The ones he had saved. Slowly Captain America must realize that they don’t feel saved but angry, hurt and scared.
    The people demand justice for those who were really trying to save them and paid the price for it.
