    Summary

    Bucky isn’t sure what has woken him up until he squints open one eye, and immediately sees Tony’s sleepy smile. Tony’s hand is cupping Bucky’s face, and his thumb is brushing over Bucky’s cheek, back and forth, light and slow. Humming quietly, Bucky lets his eye flutter closed again, and leans into the touch, turning his head just enough to press a lingering kiss to Tony’s palm.

    Summary

    Spock senses Jim is dissatisfied with their sexual encounters, but Jim refuses to tell him why. He goes to his counterpart for advice and follows it the next chance he gets. Set several months after Into Darkness. A kinky one shot that became a kinky novel. :)

    K/S is the main pairing. The other pairings appear but do not play a major role.

    "Sex is one of those impulses that comes forth from within that cannot be denied. You can squelch it and contour it and regulate it, but it's an impulse that continues to come forth, sometimes more than others, but it continues to come forth."

    Summary

    Bilbo wakes on the battlefield having dreamt that Thorin had died in his arms. Knowing now what he might have lost, Bilbo's secret feelings for Thorin Oakenshield are even more troublesome, but what place does he, a hobbit, have in the resurrected Kingdom of Erebor? For Thorin, weighed heavily with guilt, still recovering from his wound, and facing the wearisome work of negotiating peace and rebuilding his Kingdom, Bilbo's presence is his one bright comfort, but will he dare risk their newly restored friendship to ask for more?

    Summary

    Sherlock takes a remarkably early retirement at 47, and convinces John that a change of pace would do them both good. They buy an old cottage on the South Downs, and exchange their nonstop life in Baker Street for quiet contemplation, bee studies, and book writing.

    They might go completely insane, but sometimes it takes stepping outside of the life you're living to find the life you want.

    Sherlock takes one last look out to the horizon, mouth downturned and brow furrowed, before seeming to shake himself and catching up to John with a few long-legged strides. John turns back toward the path cut into the cliffs, climbing steadily toward the rolling downs already green and lush in the weak April warmth.

    They reach the top and Sherlock strikes toward the west, back to where their hired Land Rover sits a mile away in a public carpark. John falls into step beside him and takes a deep breath.

     

    “I expected a case,” he starts. “A bit chilly for a walk, really, so. D’you mind telling me what we’re doing out here?”
    Sherlock doesn’t even pause, simply tucks his head down against the wind and continues walking.

    “I’m retiring,” he says simply.

    Summary

    Sherlock has spent his life thinking that he's ugly, and it really wouldn't bother him except for two things: a) he wants John to like him, and b) he finds himself on a case involving underwear modeling. But apparently body positivity comes with a bloody side dish of serial killing, and John in nothing but pants is very distracting. What's an ugly duckling to do?
