    Summary

    Weddings and marriages aren't forever, his grandmother always said - but with the way Oliver is glowing across from him, Marcus is pretty sure that statement doesn't apply to them.

    (In which Marcus knows he doesn't live in a fairy tale, but Oliver is better than any happy ending he could've imagined.)

    Summary

    Nevertheless, Raven was always going to be Raven, and she sure as hell wasn’t the martyr her ex-boyfriend was. Try as she might, she wasn’t exactly kind to Murphy. She was short and snarky and aggressive, but that wasn’t too bad because he was, too. They had almost reached a certain level of angry companionship. Raven was good at giving orders, and Murphy, once he was done sassily expressing his pseudo-discontent, was surprisingly good at taking them.

    Or: Raven needs to get off, and Murphy needs a friend. Neither expected their needs to be fulfilled by the other.

    Summary

    Steve fucking smiles.

    Like it's good to see him again. Like he has already said his goodbyes to Bucky and moved on. Despite the fact Bucky’s never got the chance to do the same.

    Steve's at the end of the line while Buck's still stuck in the middle.

    *

     Post-Endgame AU in which Bucky gets the happy ending (and Steve) that he deserves… well, after a reasonable amount of angst and feels.

    Summary

    If there’s anything that Steve can cling to, it’s this: the universe isn’t one thing, set and immutable. They live in a multiverse; they live at an ever-moving nexus of now, when anything and everything can splinter into a million different could haves, should haves, would haves.

    And if it can have happened, that means that somewhere it did happen.

    Somewhere there is a universe where Natasha didn’t die.

    Somewhere there is a world where Steve and Clint aren’t the only ones to cry for her.

    Somewhere there is a world where they had more time.

    ~~~

    OR: The multiverse fic.

    Natasha gets a funeral in this world, but in every other she finds her family, and home, and peace. This story is Endgame compliant while also rewriting what happened, because somewhere in an infinite set of universes, Natasha Romanov gets her happily ever after.
