    Summary

    Bucky isn’t all that suave nowadays, which explains why the first thing he says to his new—and incredibly hot and lethal-looking—teammate is, “Oh.”

    Followed by, “Um."

    And then, “I didn’t realise we were going to a masquerade. I would’ve brought my domino mask.”

    Bucky isn't quite sure who the Winter Soldier is, or how they wound up working a mission together, or how to get him to talk, but he has to admit the guy is ridiculously attractive.

    This fic features clones of uncertain provenance, a slightly ditzy BuckyCap, ill-advised flirtation attempts, and an infestation of Jameses. Tongue very much in cheek.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I love your use of humor -- the part about the sentient couch especially! And yes, I did have to look up "portmanteau" (part of a "human portmanteau" -- hee, hee!); thank you for not talking down to your audience (and for adding to my vocabulary).

    With the news being so dire these days, I especially appreciate well-written humor, and have recommended this fic to several of my friends. I'm now looking forward to reading more of your fics.

    I consider this one of the best-written short fics I've ever read -- and I do a LOT of reading! You have definite talent in the realm of writing; please keep on using it.

    Please keep up the good work -- and I strongly appreciate the time and effort you've put out there to give the rest of us some much-needed entertainment when life gets us down. A blessing on your house!

    Summary

    Steve and Bucky didn't know HYDRA was working to breed a new supersoldier from their DNA, but they're pretty glad they get to keep the little boy, even if things aren't exactly smooth sailing all the time.

    The "Like Non Other" series by aspeninthesunlight is a novel-length Harry Potter fanfic in which Severus Snape adopts both Harry (after his muggle relatives are killed by Voldemort) and Draco (when he has an abrupt change of mind about becoming a death-eater, like his father). Severus slowly huilds them into a real family, complete with brotherly squabbles, Draco's impulse to poison death-eater aspiring Slytherins, Harry's inept attempts to act like a "son" (something he's had no experience in) and the attempts of Draco's father to a) bring Draco back into the death-eater fold, and b) put a kill-order on his son. You learn more about Severus' father and how he became a death-eater. It's a heart-warming story and is a good, long read.

    The "Kin" series is a slow burn, novel-length fanfic where Angel basically adopts Xander, Spike treats Xander like a little brother, both Spike and Xander weather the reappearance of Angelus (just!), Xander grows up, and Spike finally convinces both of them to get together. It takes you through Xander's growing up (and away from his original dysfunctional family), with all the problems inherent with doing so in an alcoholic family on a hellmouth. Lots of humor and ups-and-downs in the process. A very original, beautifully plotted, heart-warming fanfic.

    Summary

    A long, long time ago in a galaxy far-- no, sorry, wrong fandom. Wolfling and I did write a lot together, and this was one of them. An epic tale of Xander and his crappy childhood, and how Giles rescued him, and how Xander and Spike fell in love (well, sex, and then love or something like insanity?) We were short on research and long on pain, but the series has long been enjoyed by fans so it can't be too horribly embarrassing? I'm not re-reading it as I go, because that way lies madness and also editing, which would mean this wouldn't get posted for another five years.

    We began writing this over 13 years ago! Maybe in another 13 years I will post our Qui-Gon/Obi series.

    Giles rescues Xander from his family (and just in time!), adopts him and Xander finally gets to learn what having a sane, loving, accepting, parent is like. A heart-warming, novel-length fanfic in which Xander makes the typical mistakes that come with being a teenager and coming from a dysfunctional family. Plus a push-me-pull-you romance between Spike and Xander (it starts with Spike scaring the bejasus out of Xander) with an intervention by a concerned Angel (which doesn't take).
