    Summary

    "You're… not Hal," Steve says when the stranger looks at him. He's probably close to twenty-five, the same as Steve. Tall and broad shouldered (not the same as Steve), with a head full of loose, dark brown curls. He's not wearing any kind of sweater, just a short sleeved t-shirt that seems significantly tighter than is necessary. If Steve's shirt were that tight his ribs would be visible.

    "Nope," the man says, leaning forward to rest one hand on the counter and hold the other out to Steve. "Bucky Barnes."

    --

    Steve has a comfortable, well-worn routine for his Thursday nights, until the old man who runs the laundromat breaks his hip.

    Then Steve has Bucky instead.

    Summary

    In the MCU, instead of picking up a biography of Alexander Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda picks up a biography of Steve Rogers. This changes things. While the world goes insane for the musical, Steve and the man who believes himself to be Bucky Barnes find their own ways to take control of their narratives.

    So here's the real question: How does a half-dead orphan born in the middle of a forgotten spot in the tenements of New York without a father and raised by a single mother grow up to be the first and only super soldier?

    Summary

    “I can smell that village witch’s charm in your hand,” Geralt says flatly. “It reeks of sage and woodsbane, and I told you to leave it alone.”

    “How are we supposed to figure out what it is if you won’t even take it out of your saddlebags?” Jaskier protests. “It’s not like I’m doing anything with it, there’s no mysterious incantations to recite or enchanted seals to break. I’m just—”

    “Playing with it,” Geralt interrupts.

     
    Alternative summary: Entirely through fault of his own, Jaskier gets bodyswapped with Roach.

    Summary

    ‘Geralt. It is too early in the morning for this,’ says Jaskier, as though the sun isn’t approaching its zenith. ‘What do you mean that every horse you own is the same horse.

    *

    The only thing Geralt knows for certain is that Roach will never leave him; not for long, anyway. And he thinks that maybe there’s something tying them to Jaskier, too.

    Jaskier just wants to know why on earth Geralt would name his horse after a fish.
