    Summary

    Crowley doesn't know what to do next, but he guesses he can be excused. Armageddon doesn't happen twice, after all. Maybe it's time for a real vacation – but first there are a couple things left unsaid.

    Aziraphale is, perhaps for the first time in his long tenure on Earth, sleeping soundly, and he’s doing it directly in the center of Crowley’s bed. He’s lying on his side, curled up on himself, fist tucked against his mouth. Intermittently, he murmurs in his sleep, little snatches of celestial language that make Crowley’s skin prickle as if he’s being watched from a great distance, but have little other effect.

    Summary

    Adam gave Aziraphale a body back. Like everything else Adam fixed, there are a few extra features that aren't covered in the standard issue angelic user manual. Luckily, Crowley has some practical experience with temptation.

     

    The Bentley is parked outside on the wet pavement, collecting a dewy shine in the foggy drizzle. It’s been there for approximately eighteen minutes, just long enough for its driver to make himself comfortable in Aziraphale’s back office.

    Summary

    Fleeing from the closing net of the FBI, Hannibal Lecter finds his chosen retreat borders the territory of a vicious new serial killer preying on Oxford University professors. As he nurses Will and himself back to health, Hannibal works to help Will come to terms with the new layer of intimacy in their relationship and to negotiate Will's compulsion to deliver justice without putting them at risk for discovery.

     

    He can't recall the fall, or which of them broke the choppy waves first, but he can remember Will's hand on the back of his neck, hot as a brand in contrast with the icy water that swallows them. The ocean has a hungry, cold vastness that unsettles even Hannibal, washing them against the rocks like flotsam – and with as little regard for their autonomy.

    Summary

    In hindsight, Bruce should’ve been suspicious the moment the Hulk didn't try to surface immediately after the third drink. That’s about when the dog and pony show started up in his brain. He doesn’t remember much after that.

    Bruce has a little misunderstanding with some really positive results.

    Summary

    Bucky’s not laughing at him, not where Steve can see, but after Thor gives Steve an appraising look, scratching his beard absently, and says with usual cheer, “You’re most fortunate. This enchantment is only temporary,” Bucky makes sure he’s not in Steve’s direct line of sight.

     

     

    It's about par for the course that Steve Rogers get himself in all manner of trouble. A couple extra limbs are really no big deal.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers learns how to stop running from what he wants.

    Bucky wakes him well before dawn. Steve rises slowly, unwilling to disturb the morning quiet, and Bucky hands him a bowl of hot porridge with a fried egg laid over the top of it, the yolk as yellow as daffodils when he breaks it with his spoon.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes gets cold at night like every other man on the front, so when he finds himself trapped in a bathroom stall with the prospect of getting down on his knees for Captain America, he doesn't mind all that much.

     

    There’s an obscene hole in the wall between the endmost stall and its neighbor. He touches the edges of it, sanded smooth, and stares dumbly when he realizes that it must not be a rumor at all.

    Summary

    Bucky's on the take. If the upcoming illegal boxing match or the looming world war don't do him in, Steve just might.

     

    He thinks of the money promised and how he wants to give Steve the whole damn world: all he’s got are his own two hands, and if they have to be bent to hurting other people to get what he needs, then so be it.

    Summary

    A story about breaking all the rules, breaking down, and rebuilding.

    Thirty wasn't a good number for Jim Kirk, but thirty-one might end up being better -- if he can keep his head down long enough.
