    Summary

    For many long years Merlin waited.

    For the other part of his soul, for the other half of his life. He was born to serve Arthur. So that meant he was also born to wait. Even if it took a thousand years. Even if the wait seemed never to end.

    Until one day, suddenly, it did.

    --------------

    Set after the Merlin Series 5 Finale "Diamond of the Day".
    Canon Compliant. In Character. Arthur Pendragon Returns

    When Arthur stumbles from the Lake of Avalon 1,500 years after his death, he finds a world unlike the one he knew. Faced with the loss of everyone he loved, and the threat of impending prophecy, Arthur must quickly learn what it means to be not just a king, but the Once and Future King. Merlin does all he can to guide him in this journey, even as he struggles to hide his love for his king, and to conquer his fear of losing him again.

    Story includes sass, banter, horseplay, and True Love.

    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

    “Holy shit,” Howard says, crackling through the speakers. “You alive in there?” Lying is a sin, of course, but Steve’s not sure what else he can do. He’s already lied to the government and Bucky and God Almighty; and himself, himself most of all. He ought to tell the truth. That he’s not quite what they hoped for. That perhaps they should put him back into the ocean.

    “Probably,” he says, instead, listening to Howard’s tinny laughter; and waits for the blast doors to unlock.

    Summary

    Jessica Jones is doing okay by her own, admittedly low, standards. She has an actual checking account, is not currently considered a person of interest by the NYPD, and the ice cream truck that used to park outside her bedroom window at midnight blaring Turkey in the Straw finally found another block to torment.

    But it wouldn't be her life without a complication.
