"How do you do it?" Steve finally asked, his voice brittle as he was trying to wipe his eyes dry. "How do you not break over and over again?" He was well aware that as a sergeant Bucky had seen, had commanded, more than his own fair share of death.
"I do," Bucky told him. "We all do. We just can't let the cracks swallow us whole."
Magic has always been a part of this world. Some have it, others don’t - and Bucky discovers early on just how destructive his own is. As much as he might hate his abilities, however, he will use them to keep first his family and Steve and then the entire Howling Commandos safe. Things get more difficult once they get thrown into the fray of war, but somehow they endure, the Commandos growing stronger as they grow closer.

Steve Rogers runs a successful business. He has great friends and a great life. It seems like he has it all. So why is he sitting in a diner on a Friday night alone? Maybe he's just a little lonely. Maybe Bucky Barnes can help with that.
It wasn’t just how he looked. Of course, the fact that he was ridiculously stunning was what Steve had noticed first when he’d spotted him across the diner and had left him staring with his mouth open before he’d realised what he was doing, but how could he not?...
Or: basically everything I love in a Steve and Bucky fic rolled into one.

Bucky Barnes grew up thinking he could do anything, and is coming to terms with the fact that his parents might have oversold the idea of being an adult. He's an average 30-something Brooklynite with an average job, an average life, and a (smaller than) average apartment. So, he compares his life to the colorful Instagram pictures his friends post while longing for the excitement and brightness of their online presences.
Steve Rogers has his dream job as a master stylist at the Red Room Salon, along with his dream apartment, and almost his dream life. Except, he's terrified of getting too close to people after his last real relationship left him self-conscious of being too hard in both personality and body type. While most of the emotional wounds have healed, their scars still linger.
What happens when Steve and Bucky meet one night over an accidental gesticulation gone wild alongside a smack in the face?
(Or: the meet-ugly with soft!Bucky; unicorn!haired Steve; good bros Sharon, Nat, and Bobbi; human disaster Clint Barton; everyday hero Sam; plus a side of Spideypool. There's smut, feels, and a story that's a bit more autobiographical than the author intended.)

Basically, I have a massive love of underappreciated!whumped!Danny, so I've gone and done something terrible. Please don't hate me.
Now in the process of being beta'd by the gorgeous WaitingForJudgement, who's been absolutely wonderful at deciphering what in the hell kind of things I've written.
It's the summer after Stiles' first year of college, and he's working a crappy job and dealing with nightmares and anxiety - but he's okay, he swears. He makes it through most days without too much trouble. Then, a certain werewolf comes back into town. Which Stiles doesn't care about, nope, not at all.
After two and a half years, Derek returns to Beacon Hills with his small Pack. Though he tried to move on, something just kept drawing him back to Beacon Hills, he's just not sure what. Now, he figures he can start building something like a life - but he keeps getting distracted by Stiles Stilinski of all people.
