    Summary

    “My true love will have hair the color of yellow apples,” and Jack Zimmermann will take a bite from the forbidden fruit, juice running down his chin. “My true love will be exactly five feet and six-and-a-half inches tall,” and he will chew a leaf from a tree of that same height. “My true love will be as sweet as sugar and sharp as lemon,” and he will drink half a glass of Great-Aunt Cathy’s lemonade, waiting until the last dregs of sugar hit his tongue. “And if a single one of these things is not to be, then let it be known—my true love shall not be he.”

    (He knows in his bones that this spell won't ever come true. After all, his true love isn't real, and if he's not real, then the curse can't take him. That's the whole point.)

    --

    Or, a Practical Magic AU. Wherein Jack Zimmermann must deal with family curses, hockey legacies, accidental manslaughter, Kent Parson's obstinate death wish, and a snarky Southern kitchen warlock who won't mind his own damn business.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is not a fan of Captain America. Not one bit. There's an old family grudge to carry and Bucky does it spectacularly. Until he finally has a reason not to.

    [This was originally going to be part of the ShrunkyClunks Bang, but life happened in a big way. Finally done though!]

    Summary

    Kent has a pretty good life. It’s been a couple years since the Aces last won a cup, but he’s still at the height of his career. He has an apartment with a stunning view over Vegas, a best friend who’s always dragging him to basketball games, a cat to cuddle with, and more money than he could ever spend.

    Everything is fine.

    So it won’t be a problem at all if he strikes up a friendship with that guy he meets at the All-Star party.

    ----

    Tomas enjoyed the years he spent in Minnesota, but he’s ready for a new life in a different city. It means he’ll be even further from his friends and family in Quebec, and he’s not sure he’s going to adapt well to the desert. But he’ll have his new job to distract him, and he’s never minded the challenge of developing a new circle of friends and acquaintances.

    He doesn’t expect Kent Parson to be part of that.

    Summary

    “Remember what I said about internet trolls?”

    “Don’t feed the trolls.”

    “Exactly. Did I not say the same thing to Barnes?” Tony asked rhetorically. “Were those not my exact words? I could have sworn they were, and yet.”

    “Bucky’s feeding the trolls?”

    “He’s throwing a goddamn seven-course troll banquet. Every time someone on Twitter asks if your relationship announcement is real, he replies. Colorfully.”

    Steve opened his mouth to ask what “colorfully” meant, then caught the gleam in Tony’s eye and put two and two together. He blushed. Colorfully. “Oh.”

    (Steve and Bucky announce their relationship in a very dignified press conference. Bucky then replies to every goddamn tweet asking him to confirm it with a different dirty euphemism. Things escalate from there.)
