    Summary

    Captain America wakes up from the ice in 2013. The Winter Soldier wakes up in 2009, or rather defects from HYDRA, for a value of defect that’s closer to decimate. He ends up working for SHIELD. In April 2014, he’s assigned to Captain America’s mission as a sniper.

    Steve’s just trying to get some kind of life together. Bucky is too, or at least he was until tall, blond and Captain shows up and starts just - being there, all the time. It’s terrible. It’s the worst. He has to do something about it.

    Summary

    On the day aliens fall to earth through a hole ripped in the sky, Bucky Barnes is pulled from the rubble of the Battle of New York by a mysterious man wearing a costume and a cowl.

    The next day, he wakes up in the hospital and makes a new friend named Steve Rogers - a certified weirdo with a deck of cards and plenty of time on his hands.

    A postcard, a text, and a thousand miles of asphalt later, Bucky's still trying to understand the man who came from the stars.

    Steve, meanwhile, is finally putting the journey ahead of the destination.

    Summary

    “Steven—”

    “Bucky—” said Steven, probably to irritate James.

    “Come on. You know—”

    “There are two thousand of them, you have to negotiate.” The court wizard had said at least two thousand, sweating nervously; the scrying glass wasn’t always reliable, but it sounded very likely.

    “The hell I do.” James slammed his fist onto the table, making the mugs of ale jump. “This isn’t Canterbury. He has no rights here.”

    Summary

    “Is that your way of asking me to cook for you sometime?” Alec says. “'Cause I will.”
    The moment the words escape his mouth, Alec finds himself slightly panicking. Because he does not talk like that, ever―in a way that might even be considered flirting―and he still doesn’t understand what it is about Magnus that brings stuff like that out of him. More importantly, he has a boyfriend.
    Magnus, however, just looks mildly surprised as their eyes meet.
    “My, my. Master chef, good family name, and charming?” Magnus tilts his head ever so slightly. “Careful, Mr. Lightwood,” he says in a low, teasing voice, mouth curving up in a smile. “You’re gonna make me swoon.”
    ---

    One night, Magnus spots a handsome stranger in the elevator of his apartment building – which wouldn’t be a big deal if said stranger didn’t turn out to be dating Magnus’s neighbor. The stranger soon becomes Alec, and their paths end up crossing more than once. A tentative friendship develops as they slowly get to know each other, and they both find that it’s effortless in a way neither of them has ever known. It's only when other kinds of feelings start getting involved that things become a bit more complicated.
