    Summary

    Life in the Nova Corps meant odd hours and often random meal times, but this suited Garthan, most days. It meant that Errin's stall was quiet whenever he swung by, save for the odd tourist or two, and Errin knew better than to try small talk on an off-hours Corpsman trying to have a good meal in a bit of peace before going back on the beat.

    Today, Garthan made it midway through the bowl before his perfect daily moment of peace was ruined by a tourist. Off-worlders were common on Xandar: the planet was an interstellar trading hub, after all, with free trade agreements signed with most intergalactic civs, but years in the Corps had given Garthan a healthy understanding of trouble, and this tourist positively reeked of it.

    Summary

    Despite Hanzo's competence, the Shimadas chose to hire a new bodyguard for the heirs. The elders found the one they wanted: an American mercenary so deadly some called him a demon. He was remarkably skilled, insolent, and above all mysterious. Genji, of course, liked him right away, but Hanzo had his doubts.

    -

    This is, of course, how it begins, but the story moves from pre-fall of Overwatch to post-Recall, so there is quite a bit more.

    Summary

    Hannibal smells her first. Nearly buried beneath the pungency of the cheap colognes mounted on a nearby display case is something totally incongruous: the sticky-sweet dough scent of the cinnamon pretzels sold down on the mall’s first level. He parts the suits with both hands, hangers squeaking on the bar, and looks down at the young girl squatting on the floor in the middle of the rack.

     

    Or, Will loses his daughter at the mall. Hannibal returns her to him.

    Summary

    So his new partner was surprisingly not completely un-attractive, for a human. Gavin Hayes had impressive aptitude scores, and a friendly smile, and eyes sharp as winter currents, taking in the station and remembering names and details with an ease that belied his causal charm. All things that transcended species boundaries and general integumentary inadequacies.

    It didn’t mean Sezin found him sexy.

    Summary

    "He knows it," the demon murmurs. "See? He knows. But you don't, do you? He hasn't told you."

    "Come on," Tomas says, raising his voice over it and making himself keep looking at Marcus—who's pale, mouth pressed into a thin flat line, barely meeting Tomas's eyes.

    Summary

    “Watch his eyes,” Oleg had said to Illya, before Illya flew to Berlin. “It’s only hearsay at this point, but we know this much: it’ll be almost impossible to tell, but if you watch the eyes, you’ll know it isn’t a he at all.”

    He knows far before he ever gets a glimpse of Napoleon Solo’s eyes, however, that what he is up against—what has beaten him across the Berlin Wall with prize physicist and roboticist Udo Teller’s daughter in tow—isn’t human.

    Summary

    The cover stories, the obsession; Napoleon has little regard for classical spycraft. The true art, and true accomplishment, comes from staging. Every small piece of an assignment’s mise en scène, arranged in the perfect order to pull off the perfect heist.

    Summary

    Thor is still standing there, beaming expectantly at Sam. “What say you, Son of Wil?” he booms, like he's Aragorn recruiting that ghost army from the Return of the King, except that Thor is just trying to recruit one dude who can maybe talk to birds. (Again: nobody is supposed to know this.) Also Thor’s wearing a baby blue North Face puffer jacket and a woolly reindeer-covered hat that Sam is fifty percent sure was knitted by Vision, so the resemblance to Aragorn is really only a passing one.

    “You want me to do what where again?”

    “I wish for you to join me,” says Thor, with patient magnanimity. “Huginn and Muninn have been missing since the destruction of Asgard. Now that my people have secured a home here on Earth, I wish to find them.”

    (The other summary for this fic is: "oh, SAM")

    Summary

    “Is anyone going to Manhattan?” asks Peter, wandering by forlornly. He’s holding a laptop backpack that is still partially covered in webbing from when he'd stuck it to a wall somewhere. “I have a job interview in an hour.”

    Sam gives Steve a meaningful look.

    Steve sighs. “Hey, kid,” he says, turning to Peter. “I can take you.”

    Even with the mask on, Peter visibly perks up. “It's not too much trouble?”

    “I've got a nap scheduled at 4 p.m. and a sandwich at 6,” says Steve, “but I'll see if I can shift some things around.”
