    Summary

    Mr. Fell was as eccentric as Tim might expect a rare book dealer with a connoisseur's knowledge of cannabis strains to be, and he couldn't help being fond of him.

    Summary

    From the private journal of Alisha Jones, wedding planner, concerning the nuptials of Anthony J Crowley and Aziraphale and the planning process thereof, containing an account of chosen decor, guest list construction, and the holy war against the Antichrist that nearly ruined six months of professional organization and a very nice dinner.

    Summary

    For some, it was Judgement Day (or, well, the day that should have been Judgement Day). But for Fred Sherwin, it was just another Saturday. The most memorable thing that personally happened to Fred that day was on his way to the Tube station that morning, when he gave a bit of advice to a white-haired gent who’d just been dumped by some wanker in a vintage car.

    (The story of that moment, from Fred’s perspective— and the next two times Fred’s path crossed with that same man.)

    Summary

    Elena was on her way home from class when she happened to turn her head at just the right moment and saw it through the window of the bookshop.

    It being a large, black snake curled up on a chair in the last patches of quickly fading sunlight.

    Elena jerked to a stop with a gasp, right in the middle of the pavement. She all but pressed her face to the window, studying the snake curiously. It was quite large, even coiled as it was in its big leather armchair, and although its golden eyes appeared to be open, she could tell that it was probably snoozing. “What a beautiful creature,” Elena said to herself in a hushed, awed voice, and then made the snap decision to go inside the shop for another look.

    Summary

    What are you supposed to do when you've been fired from your sweet job in Hell for thwarting the schemes of Satan, you've got a swanky flat in Mayfair, and you're looking for an excuse to spend all your time in someone else's bookshop? Obviously, you turn to the dubious world of short-term vacation rentals.

    The resulting Airbnb property has been variously described as "an instagram trap," "a vampire den but make it botanical," and "the weirdest bed and breakfast in the shared history of beds and breakfasting."

    Summary

    There should have been nothing remarkable about two people in a busy cafeteria, but Becket takes in the familiar sight of curly hair, brown eyes, and a t-shirt with a science pun on it talking animatedly alongside Actual Anthony Edward Stark and promptly drops his lunch.

    He gapes for a solid second, seeing but not believing. It definitely doesn’t look like Mr. Stark is forcing the kid to leave, or firing him, or escorting him to security given the relaxed smiles on both of their faces. If anything, Becket thinks Mr. Stark looks rather proud.

    “So, uh, Mr. Stark definitely knows Roomba-Kid,” Becket says and discreetly tilts his head in the direction of the pair.

    “Oh my god,” Jess says. She almost sounds gleeful. “Oh my god, he’s not just some random kid. He’s Mr. Stark’s kid.”

    or: the interns at Stark Industries have some questions about Peter Parker. The answers aren’t quite what they expect.

    Summary

    Since opening her coffeeshop in Soho, Jess had a few regulars. Anthony came in every day and ordered one black coffee and one hot chocolate. They were Jess' favorite regular.

    Mr. Fell, on the other hand, was her least favorite regular. He was rude, he insulted her scones, and she was sure he was mafia.

    She didn't realize that her sweet Anthony was with that nasty Mr. Fell.

    Summary

    She’s been in the shop for an hour, just like yesterday, already as the clock chimes 5pm. Mr Fell knows she’s here. He’d given her a cup of earl grey tea without asking her anything or saying much beyond “please don’t spill it”. She’s still sipping at the last dregs of it, wanting to make it last as if it would be a good enough excuse for Mr Fell to not kick her out. She just doesn’t want to go home. It’s getting worse there and another night spent under that roof seems like hell to her. So she lingers long enough to see the red haired man stalk into the shop.

    “Angel! You fucking stood me up! We had plans! You better be discorporated or something, Zira.” The man is clearly covering his distress with the anger, it’s a painfully familiar tone.

    She rounds a shelf into the main floor space in time for the man to spin around, sunglasses hiding his eyes even indoors. He sees her and frowns.

    ***

    For the request: 'a kid comes to the bookshop for hours every day and eventually the ineffable husbands realise the kid’s parents are abusive and the kid’s been going to the bookshop to get away from them as much as possible so they’re like “screw it we’re your parents now”'

    Summary

    The creature’s presence, confined to the boundaries of a crudely drawn chalk circle, brought a tingle just the right side of discomfort down his body. There was a passive yet painfully present threat of menace that radiated off its bound form, amplified from when all it had done was sit there and stare at them. Studying them, and the room, looking for a way out.

    Aaron knew then, that if it found one, he’d be stone cold dead.

    Summary

    If there was one thing Tony Stark hated, it was seeing something broken but being unable to fix it. It was the closest thing to OCD he had. Just staring at something broken made his fingers twitch for a tool and his mind whirl with possibilities to fix it, to make it better. Honestly, it was annoying sometimes, the longest he had ever held out on trying to fix something was a day and by the time he had started his hands were shaking and he was sweating like a sinner in church. It was ridiculous.

    It also didn't stop at inanimate objects.

    aka

    Tony has a thing for taking in strays, the last ones trashed the house and ran away but that's not going to stop him from trying again.

    Summary

    [Post IM3 & CA2]

    It starts out as a joke.

    Rhodey takes one look at Tony and Harley tinkering with and squabbling over some piece of tech and demands, “Since when do you have a kid?” and Harley glances up and says casually, without missing a beat, “He impregnated my mom eleven years ago and then left her to raise me alone. He’s a terrible person.”

    Tony’s going to be laughing about Rhodey’s expression for MONTHS.

    Summary

    “They’re calling about an orphaned boy,” Pepper says, her confused frown clear in her voice. “His whole family was killed in a car crash, and when they asked him if there was anyone he could stay with, he gave them your name. He says you know him.”

    Tony finally looks up, frowning a little.

    “Uh, ok,” he says, and thinks that it’s probably some random kid he signed a poster for once who’s hoping to be adopted by Iron Man. “Not likely, but whatever. Who’s the kid?”

    Pepper glances back down at her notes.

    “Harley Keener,” she says.

    Tony falls off his chair.

    [Or, how Tony Stark came to adopt Harley Keener.]

    Summary

    When Harry first joined the wizarding world, he did everything he was supposed to do. He sorted to Gryffindor, he was part of the Golden Trio and he was willing to die to defeat the man that had killed his parents. Unfortunately all that got him were seven uncomfortable years leading to an even more uncomfortable conversation with Dumbledore after he had apparently died. But while Harry was still considering his options between staying dead and Dumbledore's suggestion of somehow returning to finally defeat Voldemort once and for all, a third path was presented that would give him the chance to choose a different road to take on the day he'd first learned that Magic existed.

    Summary

    The New Watcher's Council discovers the Wizarding World thanks to Voldemort's resurrection in Harry's fourth year. With a prophecy in play, Giles sends in Xander, with Spike as backup. The chaos and mayhem the pair leave in their wake is enough to make Janus high, and the two worlds will never be the same again.

    The story starts in the summer after fourth year for Harry Potter, and about three years post-Sunnydale for the Scoobies. Just pretend the timelines match up.
