    Summary

    In a society where people with magic are considered to be dangerous, are labelled as freaks, and have their powers cut off from them, Merlin does whatever he can to survive the hard life he’s faced with. When he’s in desperate need of money, Merlin’s landlord Aredian arranges and offers a magically binding contract in which Merlin is to become a ‘companion’ to Uther Pendragon’s son, Arthur. And when Merlin feels compelled to accept it, he never would have imagined that one man could change his life so completely.

    Summary

    ''Doesn’t Captain Rogers ever…wonder,'' Peter winced as he fumbled for the right word, ''where you are?''

    Bucky smirked. ''Steve’s a regular mother hen. Used to be me that worried about him.'' He gave Peter a pointed look. ''Better question is, isn’t Stark wondering where you are?''

    Summary

    '"He's still in the hospital too, with the Lieutenant," Alphonse said dully. "Blood loss - someone slit her throat..." Ed stared up at the ceiling, remembered the scientist with the gold tooth, and shuddered at the image his brain conjured of the Lieutenant lying on the floor. "But Mei helped her! So, they're sharing a room - the Colonel and Hawkeye, I mean, not Mei, 'cause the Colonel can't use his hands yet, so she's helping him..."

    "His hands?" Ed tried to remember.

    "It's how they forced him to do it," Al whispered. "They pinned him down so he couldn't move."

    Ed fought back nausea. The sense of wrong, wrong, wrong pervaded every sense of his being. How the fuck was any of that equivalent exchange?'

    Summary

    They called the soldier into a training room where he saw his son hanging upside down on the ceiling.

    “Hi Papa!” He cheered, waving with a big smile even though the soldier never gave one back.

    “Look, Soldat, your son is a miracle,” an agent cackled, yellow teeth shining in the fluorescent lights, “crawling the walls like a little spider!”

    ***

    The soldier doesn’t remember his son’s birth or how he came to be. He doesn’t remember bedding a woman and watching her belly swell, but they said the boy was his. He does know that he will protect and teach the boy within the confines of their cell walls. Even when the handlers berate him. Even when the good guys take him away

    Summary

    “My name’s Tony Stark.” the kid said, peering down from the top bunk, a mess of hair falling into his eyes. “But you can call me Tony.”
    “I know who you are.” James set about remaking the bottom bunk so he could sleep there. “I’m James Rhodes.”
    “Can I call you Rhodey?”
    “No.”
    “Well…..” Tony lit up with a smile that could only be called devilish. “Can I call you Honeybear?”
    “Under no circumstances are you to call me Honeybear.”
    “Spoilsport.”
    “Brat.”

    **************
    Tony has been a disaster since the day James met him, but that's alright because he's James's disaster and they wouldn't want it any other way. From drunk kisses in the dorms at MIT to more than kisses in Vegas and nearly losing each other every time the damn world tries to end, Tony has always been Rhodey's and that's just the way it is.

    This is the story behind the story, the parts the movies don't show us, all the times a steadfast soldier James Rhodes and a beautiful genius named Tony Stark faced everything life threw at them, and every time they used all too rare quiet moments to fall in love.
