    Summary

    “I’ve never really understood these; not much of a disguise.”

    “I dunno. It covers a lot of your face, to be honest. There’s a mirror behind you.”

    Zayn turns and studies his reflection, surprised when he sees that Niall is right. The mask isn’t cut in a simple Zorro style that would just frame his eyes; it stretches from the middle of his forehead down the bridge of his nose, hiding his cheekbones and curving into an end just before it reaches his ears. The cutouts for the eyes are a bit narrow, as he can see the edges of the mask in his peripherals and can feel the way his thick lashes brush against the top.

     

    Or, the Zinderella AU we all knew was coming.

    Summary

    “Last night was fun,” Harry read with a whine. “Call me sometime. Call me sometime?” He put his cheek against the table, his hands falling next to his face. “What does that even mean?” he groaned, shifting to partly hide himself from the bright overhead light and partly from Nym. He knew she would get judgy and Harry wasn’t in the mood.
    “I guess it means what it says.”

    Or, Harry, a lost singer/songwriter is trying to make new music after being dubbed a one hit wonder, failing to write another hit for years, when he meets Zayn on the train to San Francisco, and suddenly, he’s all kinds of inspired.

    John took his gun and his wallet, placed them down onto the mahogany desk that separated him from Mycroft Holmes, and said: "Make me disappear." And Mycroft Holmes did.

    Summary

    “Before we belonged to anyone else, we were each other's.”

    ― Elizabeth Noble, The Way We Were

    They were young once; they didn't know better. They were innocent and knew still how to love.

    After the Civil War, Tony makes a call to an old friend and an old flame and asks if he meant it when he said he'd be there for him all those years ago. It isn't a path to healing, but it is something. And something is always better than nothing.

    ON HOLD/HIATUS UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

    Summary

    616 Tony opens his eyes. He's in a different body, on a different world. Here, the team is smaller. Fractured. He's older. Wearier.

    Back home, a different version of himself opens his eyes and can't fathom the sight before him. This world is much more complicated than his own, but he's younger and more powerful here. But the stakes are higher: he's Director of SHIELD.
