    Summary

    “Some people want to be the apple of your eye, the song in your heart, the spring in your step… but I just want to be the eye of your storm.” - James Bond, to Q

    When an amnesiac kid is brought to St. Joseph's Home for orphans, James Bond doesn't bat an eye. Orphans come and go, and he's been around long enough to know that he needs to look out for himself until he's old enough to leave. But this new orphan is small, and naive, and his guilelessness attracts trouble. But when this kid latches onto Bond with a loyalty that James has never had before, well... staying aloof might not be as easy as James had thought.

    Summary

    **COMPLETE!** Protecting the Quartermaster entails a special set of circumstances, and Q is the last one to know.

    Excerpt:

    “Your identity has been compromised,” M said as he leaned forward in his chair, his features grim even as his tone remained even and calm. “I am standing you down from all your duties in Q branch. Kindly hand in all personal computers and devices. I am placing you on administrative leave, effective immediately. You need to disappear for a while, Q, for your own safety. Think of this as the holiday you never had these past two years. We will get down to the bottom of this and repair the damage done; otherwise I shall have to ask you to step down.”

    Q gaped at him, finally speechless.

    “At any rate, quartermasters are entitled to double-O agents as bodyguards, when the need arises, and he personally volunteered,” M continued as though he’d not just dropped the equivalent of a bomb and a death sentence through slow torture rolled into one, “and I do agree that under the circumstances, 007 would be the best choice as your bodyguard.”

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is just fine.

    He lives by himself in a cabin in the middle of nowhere, hasn’t killed anyone for the better part of a year, remembers nearly all of his life except the parts he spent in a glorified freezer, and has nightmares only three nights out of five. It’s as good as it gets.

    And then he meets a mutant wolf with his dead best friend’s eyes.

     

    In which Bucky is aggressively okay with his self-imposed exile from society, and Steve is a werewolf who’s nothing like the Brooklyn boy Bucky still dreams of.

    Summary

    This wasn't Steve's plan for tonight.

    Part of the plan, maybe. The part where he goes to a club, anonymous and dark; that's been part of the plan from the start. The part where he finds some... company; also part of the plan. He's self-aware enough to know how pathetically lonely he's feeling right now. The rest of the plan had been...less detailed, more just a collection abstract ideas. None of which he'd imagined would lead him here, his palms sweaty as they fish handfuls of cash out of his pockets, one arm anchored around the waist of a man who is very enthusiastically nibbling on his earlobe.

     

    Or:

    Steve tries and fails to master the whole 'one-night stand' thing, lies snowball in a truly epic fashion, the supervillains of New York are all out of control, Tony is the worst best friend and mediator in the history of ever, and Bucky has the patience of a saint. Guest starring: Augustus the houseplant, projectile pineapples, and Target superhero costumes.

    Summary

    “Steve’s been hit with a curse,” Natasha said. She said it calmly, so Bucky didn’t immediately go flying out of the apartment to tear apart the Tower in search of Steve. Then again, Natasha would probably be calm if New York City spontaneously burst into flames. He lowered the coffee pot and squinted at her.

    “Of course he has,” he said. He felt, abruptly, exhausted. “What is it?”

    “The witch kept ranting about sexual repression and archaic moral principles,” she continued blithely.

    “It’s not like you to prevaricate, Romanov.”

    Natasha pressed her lips together. For a moment, Bucky thought she might start laughing. “It might be easier just to show you.”

    OR: Steve’s been hit with a rather telling curse.
