    Summary

    Clint's voice crackles to life over the two-way radio, dripping in pseudo-cheerfulness.

    "Today on The Everything Sucks Show: We're still running low on, well, just about everything. The weather forecast is a 90% chance of acid rain and nuclear fallout followed by a 50% chance of something else fucking awful by this evening and some nice nuclear winter after the sun goes down. In current events: a new contender has taken the number one slot on the ‘most likely to kill us in our sleep’ leaderboard and his name starts with ‘lo’ and ends with ‘ki.’ The reigning champion Natasha Romanoff is understandably furious about this development..."

    Tony glances over at Loki in the passenger seat, his long legs propped up on the dashboard and arms crossed across his chest as he looks out the window. There’s a peeved frown hovering on his lips and that’s more than enough reason to leave Clint's fake news broadcast playing as their rag-tag convoy drives through the California desert, kicking up a billowing cloud of dust as they go.

    A post-nuclear apocalypse story about meeting fallen gods in abandoned shopping malls, desert road trips and finding the future in unexpected places.

    Summary

    While in prison on Asgard, Frigga devises her own punishment for her wayward son – she bestows upon Loki the curse of watching the different pathways of what might have been during the attack on Midgard. In one thread, he accepted the drink from Stark. In another, Stark saved him from death. In every thread, the infuriating mortal captures Loki's attention. Now, every time he closes his eyes, Loki walks the threads of fate that never were and that never will be, and in doing so, he must learn from the past to find the future that Frigga has already foretold from the tapestry of fate.

    Summary

    After the battle of New York, Loki was sentenced to be executed by an Aesir trial. What the god didn't expect was to wake up the morning after his private beheading in the body of a recent adversary, on a realm he had only just left...with the other person still very much alive and kicking inside. Tony is not too happy about his new headmate, and Loki is hardly thrilled over his new living arrangements. But with a new threat from the Mad Titan on Midgard's horizon, it's up to the two of them to keep the Tesseract out of hands that mean to misuse it's power.

    Summary

    Silence used to be peaceful for Bucky. These days it makes him feel like he's waiting for something, like he's listening for the warning sounds of predators approaching.

    Now silence means he's waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    He lives in a beautiful apartment with his husband-to-be and tells himself that everything is just fine. He doesn't sleep, he's scared of putting a foot wrong in case Brock snaps again, and he's desperately lonely, but he has everything he ever wants and that should be enough. It's not like he can complain about being taken care of, even if parts of it aren't exactly his choice.

    Running into his childhood friend (literally) just might change everything. 'Just fine' doesn't seem like enough once Steve walks back into his life. The problem is, Bucky's been stuck in his cage for so long that he's not sure he can leave it on his own.
