    Summary

    When Bitty dreams, he dreams of water, of drowning, of going under for the second, third, fourth time. He dreams in vibrant colour. He dreams of fists and feet and bruises that bloom the colour of summer ripe berries on pale pale skin.

    Jack dreams in black and white. He dreams of snow, white landscapes of his youth. He dreams of vials and silver needles, silver skate blades. He dreams of water, too, but it’s frozen and unforgiving. When Jack dreams, he dreams of ice, above and below him.

    //

    “If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water,” Bitty says this odd thing in his soft, rounded drawl and Jack can’t help but smile. He always smiles when he’s around Bitty.

    “Yeah?” he says. “You believe that?”

    Bitty looks at him, eyes wide and clear and dark like the depths of an ocean Jack will never see, not in this lifetime. Jack’s water is slate grey, murky, Lakes Superior and Ontario, cold and unforgiving. Nothing like the warmth and kindness of Bitty at all.

    “Yeah,” Bitty says, voice gone rough like sand. “It’s what ties us together, you and me. It brought us together, here, and that’s the best kind of magic there is, sweetheart.”

    Summary

    He thought he’d hidden these feelings from himself, stowed them away in some dark corner and learned not to think about it. But the second Eddie peeked in from around the corner at the Jade and looked at Richie with those big, limpid pools of Christmas Orphan meets Bambi, and started rambling about gluten and cashews, it all came flooding back into focus. Richie has loved Eddie so long that it’s become an ache that goes beyond reason.

    Summary

    Prince Stark was to marry a Prince he never met, for money he never wanted, to reign over a realm his father didn’t care for. But the Prince did care for his people. So he ran away, accidentally joined a group of misfits calling themselves the “Avengers”, with their fierce leader “The Captain". Although, when he discovers the secret the Captain has been keeping, everything changes.
    Featuring late night Avengers bonfires, Clint is a Bard so there’s romantic dancing and singing, Cap in medieval armour (there's Art!) and Super(Knight)family.

    Summary

    Clint is only a couple of sips into his cardboard cup of coffee, his brain barely out of neutral, which is probably why it takes him so long to realize that some damn psycho is trying to kidnap his dog.

    Excerpt:

    “I’m not some charity case,” Bucky says pugnaciously.

    “I didn’t think you were,” Clint answers back readily enough. “I mean, I can tell you’re fucked up for sure, but of the two of us, I’m probably the bigger disaster. My sleep schedule is shit, and I drink coffee straight from the pot. I sing in the shower even though I’m deaf as fuck. I have arrows everywhere because I’m an archer — did I tell you that? And I was raised in a literal circus, so I’m not exactly domestic. Let’s see, what else?” He squints down at the ground, rubbing the back of his neck. “Oh, yeah, I won the building in a poker game with the Russian mafia and every once in awhile they show up and try to take it back, but usually I handle it, no problem. Uh...”

    Clint happens to looks up and Bucky’s eyes are wide, his mouth hanging open. Clint’s hand freezes where he’s rubbing the back of his neck, suddenly embarrassed. Yeah, when you put it all out there at once, it doesn’t sound so good.
