    Summary

    What if the romance and characteristics of Colin and Penelope were darker?

    What if theirs was a tale of Hunger, Fantasy and a Passionate balance between Obsession, Possession and worship?

    What if Colin's charming, Golden boy, Act hid a devilish persona who battled Possessive/Obsessive desires?

    What if he secretly wanted to embrace his darker side?

    What if Penelope created Lady Whistledown, not only to expose the gossip of the Ton but to temper the wicked desire that fuelled her evening fantasies?

    What if theirs was not a slow-burning romance simmering in wait, but that of deep corrupting desire to ruin and possess?

    Could such a Tale still be called Love?

    Summary

    How do you go from heartbreak to healing, and then end up sharing far more than just a carriage with Colin Bridgerton? After an evening she'd rather forget, Penelope has to re-evaluate her own actions, the relationship with her best friend and any dreams she might have harboured about a future with the man she loves. The only danger of crushed hopes is a certain recklessness and perhaps a failure to notice that while your own feelings might remain the same, those of others might change.

    This is my vision of the Colin/Penelope arc for the coming seasons. It is an attempt to salvage and maintain the integrity of the characters, while finding a satisfying resolution for the dilemmas they find themselves in, and a way for their love and burning need for each other to make sense and set fire to our screens.

    Summary

    Shuri and Wanda cleared Bucky's triggers shortly after Killmonger's attempted coup, and he and Steve went on the run. But it turns out there's more to "fixing Bucky's head" than "getting Hydra out of it." When a group of rogue scientists manage to neutralize the serum and make Steve very sick--pre-serum "this is bad" kind of sick--and they're cut off from contact with Wakanda, Bucky knows only one person with resources to help.

    He calls Tony and surrenders on the condition that Tony tries to help Steve.

    From there, it's basically three variously messed-up guys’ trajectories from "This Is Fine", "Reasonably Speaking I Know It’s Fine", "I Will Be Fine With It" to actually being fine, guest-starring a far-better-adjusted teenage boy who climbs walls, a 1957 Ford Thunderbird, two women with a keen sense of the absurd, and Bruce, the Zen master of “it’s fine that it’s not fine.”

    Add in the fact that Bucky's been secretly in love with Steve since the thirties and things only get harder. Learning to be a person is the hardest thing Bucky Barnes will ever have to do--but he's got company along the way.

    In 1916, Bucky's mother arrived in New York with her father, the future owner of one of the most popular speakeasies in Brooklyn. In 1927, Bucky met Steve Rogers and realised there was a world beyond that of favoured son and the clean streets of his neighbourhood.

    Summary

    Steve just wanted a job. He wasn't expecting a marriage proposal. And he certainly wasn't expecting to accept.
