    Summary

    Stress baking isn’t a hobby Harry ever thought he’d pick up, but he’s surprised to find how much it helps him to get through those long months post-war. It keeps his hands busy, it keeps his mind occupied, and when Draco Malfoy steadily pushes his way back into Harry's life, it helps with that too.

    Summary

    The strange thing is that Barton ought to be an unremarkable man. He has no superpowers, no enhancements, no complicated vengeful backstory, or at least not one that was mentioned in his file. What he seems to have - helping his neighbour upstairs with her groceries, or stopping a mugger, or fighting against Doombots with the Avengers and putting himself at unacceptable risk - is an unshakeable loyalty and a dented moral compass that nonetheless always points him right.

    It's intriguing. Confusing. Fascinating in ways that the Soldier has no idea how to explain.

    So instead he reports back on the harmless details; the dog, the range, the dull gold ring on the fourth finger of Barton's left hand.

    Summary

    People like to tell Clint he’ll find his soulmate someday. Just because his mark looks like it’s crumbling, that it’s a mess with no clearly defined edges, that no one can even tell what it’s supposed to say, that doesn’t mean he’s doomed to be alone forever. Clint can remember when it was clearer, when he was younger, so he knows what it’s supposed to say, and when others ask, he just... doesn’t answer. Shrugs their concerned optimism off with a rueful grin, like he isn’t sure he believes them, like he’s got self-esteem issues, like a broken soulmark is his biggest concern.

    Like he hasn’t met his soulmate half a dozen times and lost him just as often.
