    Summary

    NOW COMPLETE

    “If you did play chess," Ross said, "you’d remember that a pawn can become a queen. The most powerful piece on the board, Parker, remember that? But—” Ross smiled— “only if it obeys.”

    He adjusted his tie, stood, and looked down at Peter. “I’ll ask you again,” he said. “Eventually. You may feel differently after you’ve been living in a six-by-six cube without sunlight or fresh air for a few years.”

    “What pawns do,” Peter said, voice shaking slightly, “is sacrifice themselves for the greater good. I have no regrets.”

    He had a lot of regrets.

    Like, a lot. A crapton. A shitload. An overloaded dumpsterful.

    “When I visit you on the Raft,” Ross said, “you’ll be old enough to grow a beard.” The cell door clicked shut behind him.

    Summary

    It’s a man’s world. Steve knew that. And fifty years had changed nothing but the extremes people were willing to go to justify their hatred of Demons.

    Which meant that under no circumstances was anyone to ever find out that Captain America was one.

    Summary

    Sometimes the truth is like a second chance.

     

    The ashes of the Triskelion have barely cooled when Steve arrives unbidden at Stark Tower. He doesn’t quite know what he’s looking for, so it’s a good thing someone seems to; Sharon thinks she should be getting hazard pay (she should); Phil is beginning to understand why Fury was perfectly happy to stay publicly dead; Natasha and Sam in no way signed up to be relationship counsellors and want their money back; Bucky is waiting for the other shoe to drop like an anvil on his head; and bureaucracy is as impossibly, torturously stupid as it always is. Honestly, the fine print in superhero contracts needs a lot of revision.

    Or: the one in which we accidentally wrote half of (and preemptively fixed) Captain America: Civil War before D23, except gayer.

     

    Note: For anyone who prefers waiting for WIPs to finish before reading, all substantive plot has concluded with chapter 5! 6 is essentially a (long) epilogue of pure fluff to recover from the previous 150,000 words; no major plot developments occur.

    Summary

    In a world where the supernatural is known, Peter still has to stick out. He can't just be a werewolf, he has to be a sub, too. He can handle the stupidity from his classmates, he doesn't even care about that, but Talia not understanding what he needs because werewolf subs are so rare?

    Yeah. That he could do without.

    ***

    Stiles is a Spark, freelance Emissary, and a Dom, in that order. He likes it that way. The freedom of it, the ability to travel and learn. He's not ready to settle down.

    But he maybe considers lingering when someone catches his eye.

    Summary

    In the wake of the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the Avengers need to pick up the pieces, and figure out where to go from here. Tony had a plan, at least he thought he had a plan, but Steve Rogers seems to have blown most of those out of the water.

    Spoilers for CA:TWS, lots of them.

    Summary is a little vague to avoid spoiling, but it's a plotty, post CA:TWS 'what do we do now' fic.
