    Summary

    Clint Barton and Jim Street have been together for about a month as Bonded Guide and Sentinel when Jim's mom is released from prison.

    Clint wants Jim to have nothing to do with his emotionally abusive, Hydra mother. But Jim feels he owes Karen Street too much to abandon her, and Clint loves Jim too much to break his Sentinel's heart. So despite Clint's misgivings, they go to Los Angeles to visit.

    The idea is to spend a couple hours with Karen and then hopefully never see her again. But what not even Jim realizes is how much Karen hates Clint for being Jim's Guide instead of her. Or how far she'll go to get her son back.

    Because Karen Street will do anything to get her son back. The problem is, Clint and Jim might not survive it.

    Summary

    Please note this is not a fic, so don't be disappointed. ♥

    A while ago, the incredibly kind and amazingly talented artist Darkmoore made me a doll of Bucky Barnes in his moose hoodie! After far too long I am finally sharing it here.

    Summary

    For these prompts on the ITAB Comm on Tumblr:

    "May I have post-CW angst please? Heart-wrenching, sad sad angst. Happy ending, ofc." And, "Can someone do a story where the Soldier is the main personality in bucky/winter headspace and that he sides with tony in the whole winter soldier civil war arc?" (Full prompts in Notes.)

    Tony took a breath. "I should have never, ever gone after you. You didn't deserve it. You never deserved it. You were the only actual innocent victim in that whole fucking mess and I should have helped you. Not just when I realized how Zemo had played all of us, but especially after I saw that tape. I already knew what Hydra had done to you. Not…not as much as I do now, but I knew. I should have helped. I should have protected you. But I decided to have a tantrum instead. That's on me. I have to live with that." He took another breath that shuddered a little bit. "But I want you to know that I am so, so incredibly sorry for what I did. And I swear by all I hold holy—which isn't much, I know, but it counts—that I will never hurt you again. And I will do anything I can to make this right."

    Bucky stared at him. "Do you forgive me?"

    Summary

    For this anonymous prompt at the Imagine Tony and Bucky comm on Tumblr:

    "How about anything with tsum tsums in it? I love them! Soulmates AU where you are born with your soulmate's tsum? Or tsums are like daemons? The little guys are the ones to fall in love first? Anything goes, really!"

    The Asset called the creatures 'Soft Pills', because he had to take pills often enough that he recognized the shape. He knew there was another name for them, something like 'Sum', but no one ever told him.

    He liked the soft pills. They were warm and nice to touch and made pleasant noises. He didn't have one of his own, but that was reasonable. He didn't have a soul, so how could he have a Soulmate? The little creatures appeared for humans; not weapons. But sometimes, if he'd done very, very well on a mission, one of his Handlers would let him hold their pill for a little while.

    Summary

    For this nonny prompt at the Imagine Tony and Bucky comm on Tumblr:

    "Bonding is a natural thing that happens between compatible people. Person can have only one bond. When Tony wants to bond with his partner he finds out that he already has a bond. Now he has to find the person that he accidentally bonded with so many years ago when he was still a child."

    The only thing Tony remembered for certain was how he'd felt: Joy, belonging and comfort like he'd never found before or since. For a couple minutes out of his entire misbegotten life, he'd known what it meant to be whole.

    It was impossible to forget. It had ruined him. Every new friendship, every potential relationship, only offered the forlorn possibility that he might feel that way again. But he never did. And after forty-something years of looking, he didn't think he would.

    He still woke up with tears on his face and an emptiness inside him like a black hole had swallowed his heart. But that didn't happen as often anymore. He could even manage not to think of his lost Half for whole hours at a time.

    Most of the time, he was okay.

    Summary

    For this nonny prompt at the Imagine Tony and Bucky comm on Tumblr:

    "A soulmate AU where an immortal goose shows up one day to lead you to your soulmate, the challenge is surviving the goose." (Full prompt in notes.)

    We all have soulmates, and every soulmate pair shares an animal guide. The Guide is there to lead you to your One True Love, and they represent the aspects of the psyche that you both share. They appear when you're about to meet your soulmate, and often materialize in moments of great personal crisis, offering hope and support. There are stories upon stories about how someone's Guide appeared to lead them to their One True, or how the barest glimpse of their Guide eased their hearts and gave them hope in the midst of despair. The newly-rescued almost always attribute their Guide with giving them the strength and courage to hang on.

    Animal Guides are ephemeral, ethereal, and elusive. They are, most often, no more than a warm presence or flicker out of the corner of one's eye. They are incarnate symbols of perseverance, optimism and hope. Foretellers of happiness, and the grand destiny of love.

    Except for geese. Geese are assholes.

    Summary

    This isn't Stucker's story, but it begins with him because he finds a much older story, one about an American prisoner with a divided soul. One day the prisoner will get his name back, along with his history and freedom. But right now he is known only as the Ghost Cat; The Siberian Tiger; the Asset. Designations whispered with awe, disbelief and fear.

    Strucker isn't afraid, but he is envious. It's 2005 and Alexander Pierce has owned the Ghost Cat for thirteen years. Strucker wants the Ghost Cat very, very badly, but Pierce is the head of the World Security Council. Pierce controls the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Strucker has a few armed thugs, a couple of trembling, sycophantic scientists, and an anachronistic fortress in the middle of a Sokovian forest. He has nothing that would let him steal or take the Ghost Cat from Pierce. He certainly has nothing to offer worth a shape-changing, assassin familiar.

    Strucker may have nothing to offer, or with which to challenge Alexander Pierce. But he does have his intelligence, his knowledge, and his ambition.

    He also has a pair of young, terrified twins.

    Summary

    "I never blamed Bucky for…for being the weapon that killed my parents in the first place. I blamed you for keeping it from me. And anger issues, yadda. But, didn't it ever occur to you I might've helped you find him?" Tony's voice had gone small, compressed around a pain Steve had never even imagined he might feel. "I was, I'm your friend. I would've gotten over myself and helped you."

    "I know, Tony." Steve had known at the time; he'd been too afraid to let himself believe it. "I'm sorry. I'm sorry I didn't trust you enough. I'm sorry I was a coward. I'm sorry I never tried to see your perspective on the Accords."

    "I'm really sorry I tried to kill Bucky," Tony said. "I can't stand this, Steve. I want the band back together. I want to make this right."

    Summary

    Steve Rogers met Tony Stark in Afghanistan in 2011, when they were taken captive after their convoy was decimated by the Ten Rings.

    Three years later, Steve is slowly getting his life back after the trauma of an imprisonment he can barely remember. He still has nightmares and attacks of paranoia and panic, and still blames himself for the death of the soldiers under his command. But he also has his friends, a cat and a good job. Most of the time he's happy.

    Then he comes back from a weekend away and discovers someone's been staying in his apartment. And then he sees a beautiful, haunted man who shouldn't be familiar, but is. Steve's nightmares suddenly include a stranger with blue-grey eyes, and he wakes up mourning for someone who may not even be real.

    And then Steve learns in the worst way possible that there was another soldier with him and Tony in the cave: James Buchanan Barnes, who kept them alive and then supposedly died helping them escape. And who no one told Steve about, because he couldn't bear to remember.

    Bucky is alive, and he was in Steve's apartment. But with his careful, quiet life unraveling under the strain, Steve might never be able to find out why.

    Summary

    "Bucky," Steve said.

    "No," Bucky said immediately, because he knew that voice. That was Steve's "I'm not gonna fight you" voice. That was his, "go on, get outta here!" only without the shouting. That was every dumbass, stupid, self-sacrificing idiot idea he'd ever had, distilled into that one word. "No, Steve. Whatever you're thinking. It ain't happening. No fucking way."

    "Bucky," Steve said again, in that same terrible voice, "I'm…too heavy. M'not…going to let…you die…on your…birthday."

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes was Steve Rogers' Dom since they were teens. But then the War came and Bucky fell, and the Red Room and then Hydra destroyed his protective instincts along with his memory.

    Now Bucky's returned, but he's far from healed. He can barely stand to be in the same room as Steve, let alone make Steve his sub again. With no one to take him in hand, Steve is spiraling out of control, losing himself to desperation and despair.

    Clint Barton can't stand to see his friends suffering, and comes up with a plan to fix it: he'll act as Bucky's sub, until Bucky's able to be a Dom again. Then Bucky can take Steve back.

    It's not the worst idea Clint's ever had, but that doesn't mean it won't end in disaster anyway.

    Summary

    The kid's eyes were cracked open, too, even though Clint knew Steve had closed them. Because Pietro couldn't be fucking tractable even as a dead body, apparently. And Clint knew—he knew—that it didn't make a damn bit of difference. Pietro couldn't be blinded by the sun any more than he'd give a shit about having company. But Clint was enough of a sentimental, guilty sap that he shifted so he could touch the kid's eyelids to close them anyway.

    Pietro blinked.
