    Summary

    All Naruto wanted was a place to belong, somewhere he would finally feel wanted. But eventually he had to accept that you can't make people love you, no matter how hard you try. Konoha wasn't his home anymore--maybe it never was. And if he wasn't wanted in his team or his village, he'd just have to find his own home, even if it was currently in ruins.
    _____________

    Or, Naruto brings Sasuke back the first time, and he wants to be happy--the mission was a success!--but in the aftermath Naruto has never felt more hated and alone. So he leaves Konoha, off to go find a place where he'll be accepted for who he is. Even if it's a home he has to build himself.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    (12) I know I enjoy chaos gremlin characters, especially ones who join together in as a beautiful found family, with joy, comforting physical touch and emotional vulnerability abound, as they build a home together, but it's stories like this that hone in on how much I crave them with every miniscule fiber of my being, especially when they manage to mindfuck all the lowly peasants who didn't value them properly in the first place when they had them at their disposal
    (14) oh yes I am enjoying seeing our Uzu darlings sowing chaos in Konoha, the KarinIno is delightful, I adore shikamaru, these emotional bombshells dropped in such chaotic levity by Naruto is gorgeous, Iruka my darling that was exactly what I hoped for from you, Miyu continues to be one of my faves, and Neji swanning through the Hyuuga compound to reunite with Hinata will be so much fun: Chapter 14

    Summary

    The Avengers won but the universe lost the moment Thanos destroyed the Infinity Stones native to their dimension. The borrowed Stones could tell that this universe was already unravelling, falling apart and doomed to destruction.
    So when given the opportunity to fix it before they returned to their timelines?
    They grabbed it.
    Tony was in for one hell of a ride. He couldn't even die without something weird happening, could he?

    (17) there is so much beautiful wonderful aspects of this that just make my heart sign with warm fuzzy feelings, from the competent, brilliant, emotionally vulnerable, continuously growing ironfamily, the relationship of hilariously tired of this bullshit Tony and the curious, fascinated-with-this-intriguing-mortal infinity stones, everything with the science think tank that gave Tony more genuine friends that he trusts, the well-done internal dilemmas of how Tony deals with the fixed points of time vs how much can he change intentionally vs the changes he's unable to predict as a result of some small moment he didn't see the future effect of, and of course seeing the difference with a Tony who sets boundaries that refuses to allow them to be trodden over by Shield or the media or any of these idiots, while getting them to recognize that he's still a human being not just a figure to use and abuse to their liking: Chapter 17

    Summary

    "So you're adopted?
     

    "Supposedly."

     

    "So your Dad ... he's not ...?"

     

    "Seems like it."

     
    "Huh." Theo stares at Harry with those grey eyes that look silver in the cauldron smoke between them. "But you're the heir to this ... House of Prince, so he's probably -"

     

    "Yes. Probably." Harry looks at Theo sharply. "You don't know who he is, do you?"

     

    "No." Theo looks back just as sharply. "If I did, I would tell you. You know I would."

     

    "I do."

     

    Something loosens inside Harry's chest. Something that has been tightening ever since Cedric died. He may not have his friends, or Sirius, or even know who he fucking is anymore, but he has this. At least he has Theo.

     

    Summer of 4th year and Harry's all alone, dealing with his grief and the sudden revelation that James Potter is not his father. Support comes in a strange form. The form of Theo Nott, son of a death Eater. A strange friend who says he'll help him find his true father, whoever this Lord Prince might be.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    reading this leaves me a grateful ruin: Chapter 49

    “Oh.” Harry thinks about what a goblin might want to be blessed with. Money probably. He bows low. “I hope all your deals are excellent and you make a shit ton of money.”

    “Lucius is a house elf hating berk with a cane fetish.”

    Ruby red anger, Icy diamond cruelty, Emerald rich cunning and obsidian numbing silence.

    Kreacher’s eyes flash. “— Heir Nott is taking advantage of Heir Black’s moral deficiencies, Heir Black has not been taught these things in the proper way! Heir Nott should know better and is dishonorable!”

    “You do it all the time. You bind other beings with your magic, tethering their cores to one another, all the time?” Theo says, his voice flat.

    “Really? You’re the sodding Order of the Phoenix, you’re the front line in the defense against You-Know-Who and you can’t bloody figure it out that Harry Potter is being abused?”

    This is Harry all over. Buying sweets in the service station whilst he bleeds to death. Sending a message to Granger after being beaten. Offering comfort when he’s got almost nothing left to give.

    “I can always find you,” Theo whispers. “All I have to do is follow the chaos.”

    You will protect his life and protect his secrets, both implicit and explicit just as I protect his and he protects mine.

    "This just happened to me too and I don't understand how you did it either, but it’s incredible and I am part of it. I will not give it up.”

    “Scar Syndrome is when people assume Harry has things, does things or will be things based on his scar.”

    (But hurt people, hurt people. I hope that in this story, I show some of the truth of how helplessly painful it feels when you or someone you loved seems to be pulled apart by their trauma.)

    Children do not lightly forgive and forget.

    Does it make me a horrible person? That I hate him for - for loving me and dying and leaving me with all this shit and not explaining anything?

    His mother’s Potter ring chimes against his and she grins widely as the flash of a feeling of warmth flows between them.

    "Kreacher wants permission to be 'fucking wiley,'" Kreacher grins.

    What happens when the boy you plan a war around decides he doesn’t want to fight?

    (We are all the walking wounded. It's what we do to find healing, to embrace it and try to emulate it, that counts.)

    “I watched grown men kneel down before a resurrected fucking madman in June,” Harry speaks slowly and clearly, so everyone can hear. “I do not kneel to anyone.”

    Merlin, save me from an infatuated murderous Theodore Nott.

    intelligent enough to teach me, cunning enough to keep up with me and loyal enough to protect me

    Theo never takes his anger out on Harry, not even at times like this when Harry feels almost certain he deserves it. It is so incredible, so unexpected, that Harry feels painful tears pricking in the corners of his eyes.

    “Tell me now, Professor, if you will not go." Theodore folds his arms angrily. "I need to know what kind of parent you are going to be.

    Harry needs a defender right now, a person with who he can be afraid. Theo knows he is it because Harry is the only person with whom Theo can be afraid.

    “He is your child, there is no payment owed for protection,”
