    Summary

    “Captain America is haunting me,” Bucky says over a bowl of ramen.

    His pronouncement is met with a round of silence.

    “Captain America,” Natasha says. “As in--”

    “The first Avenger,” Bucky confirms. “Supersoldier and hero of World War II. The fabric of the American conscience.”

    “But he’s--dead,” Sam says. His look of perplexed concern, ever perplexed and ever concerned, only increases. “You’re aware of that, right?”

    “I know,” Bucky says. “That’s why I said he’s haunting me.”

    Summary

    The one where Vader turned double agent for the Rebellion about three years after ROTS, and Leia is now his primary contact with the Rebellion.

    This is a collection of oneshots that all fit into the same universe, but posted in no particular order. Updated when the muse strikes me.

    Alternate summary, according to TV Tropes: A man attempts to escape slavery by turning into one of his culture heroes, teaching his daughter how to do magic, killing people, and flower arranging.

    Summary

    Gawain came to them clothed in uncertain yellow, on the cusp of the winter solstice. Earth and rain had turned to mud on his skin. Haunting pain tingled his face. Exhausted and exalted.

    “Ambivalence and contradiction,” the Lady muttered. “Warning. Insanity.” Ill-winds and ill-temperament. She wrote about consequences too often to ignore such a clear omen.

    “Goldfinches,” the Lord replied. “Daffodils and irises. Lemons. Peaches.” His eyes hazed over at the thought of good peaches--he appreciated every aspect of living.

    Summary

    A series of soulmate fic because I am trash.

    Title comes from Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater. Quote:

    She'd read that new stars tended to form in pairs. Binary stars, orbiting in close proximity, only becoming single stars when their partner was smashed off them by another pair of wildly spinning new stars. If she pretended hard enough, she could see the multitude of pairs clinging to each other in destructive and creative gravity of their constellations.

    Summary

    Din was a little far from home. Mandalore was half a continent away, still cursed and scorched from the Purge. So he wanders, like the rest of his kind, under the banner of the mythosaur, finding connection only in the lonely watchtowers used by the coverts.
    The child changed this.

    “I do believe,” the Fae says, not breaking eye contact with Grogu, “that I’m here to join your party.”
