    Summary

    “And you seek to prevent all of this from happening again?”

    “Yes,” she returns simply. “After dealing with a megalomaniac that’s hell bent on my blood, though.”

    He blinks repeatedly, wondering if he actually heard her correctly. “What?”

    ***

    When they're the last two left with the Realms collapsing around them, Loki uses dangerous magic to send Evelyn back to the beginning to do it all over again. The Soul Magic has unexpected side effects, though. Evelyn blames it on her damned Potter Luck. With far more allies than originally expected, she and Loki set out to stop the end of the Nine Realms before it even starts.

    Summary

    When Stiles reads the posts, he’s more confused. They’re older posts, back from his undergrad freshman year, but it was during a supernatural attack that a bunch of people got caught in. Stiles practically ran himself into the ground offering support, advice, and gathering information for Scott and Derek so they could do damage control.

    “This tells me nothing,” Stiles says. “Except that you can use Google and know how to take screenshots.”

    “I consider it your resume,” Fury tells him.

    Stiles freezes, because what.

    Fury doesn’t say anything else, doesn’t explain, even after Stiles gestures for more. “What the hell do you mean it’s my resume? If you haven’t realized it, I’m still in college.”

    He doesn’t look impressed. “You’ve been in college. You have two degrees, four separate certifications, and you’re on the fast-track for a PhD.”

    “I like learning,” Stiles deadpans.

    “You like helping, and it just so happens that I have someone you can help.”

    Summary

    The world keeps pushing him, demanding, because what he did wasn't enough. Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, but that wasn't enough, wasn't ever enough.

    Tony Stark was tired. But he had a planet to protect, even if everyone laughed at him whenever the prospect of alien invasions was brought up. He could count on one hand how many people he could trust, which was disheartening but then, what else was new?

     

    Or,

     

    In which Tony does not, in fact, intend to take over the world.

    ...unfortunately, everyone else missed that particular memo.

     

    [gradual divergence from canon, starting at the end of Iron Man 3. In which it's Tony's self-awareness, rather than his support system, that becomes a cryptid sometime during Phase II.]

    Summary

    So Jarvis is the one who pulls her up onto her feet, presses a tool into one hand and a book into the other and tells her to create. Tells her that if the numbers and the shapes and images in her mind hurt so bad then she should build them, should give them form so that they can finally leave her alone.

    Jarvis is the one who finally teaches her how to breathe.

    Or

    Toni Stark grows up with the tale of Icarus swirling in the back of her mind. Instead of taking it as a precautionary tale about hubris and overreaching she decides it's more about the limitations of wax.

    Years later when she builds herself wings of her own she makes sure to build them out of better material.

    Summary

    A week before Thor's coronation, a drunk and depressed Loki decides he wants a genuine friend of his own. Of course, he turns to magic to solve his dilemma.
    There are only two problems. First, he is very aware that his current form isn't very lovable or trustworthy. Second, he actually needs a person to befriend.
    This is how Loki ends up in Tony Stark's living room, minutes after his disastrous birthday party, and in the shape of a cat. What will our favorite genius-billionaire-playboy-philanthropist make of the mysteriously appearing feline, and how will it all affect their lives, and those of the people around them?

    Summary

    The Civil War has come and gone, but there are still lingering cracks in the foundation of the Avengers and there are always repercussions to be paid for choices made.
    Tony's not too surprised that he seems to be the only one paying for anything around here these days, and things have just gotten so much more complicated.

    Summary

    While on a mission The Asset witnessed the abnormal arrival of three very odd people and a baby in a quiet British suburb in the middle of the night. Somehow his mission parameters changed after that without any contact from his handlers. Suddenly, even over his programmed mission, his main priority was ensuring the safety and well-being of the child that was left on the front stoop of number 4 Privet Drive.

    His employers will definitely understand... right?

     
     
    For the next several minutes The Asset occupied himself by playing a game with The Child. He would cover his eyes and pretend he did not know where The Child was, after asking, “Where’s Harry?”, several times he would uncover his eyes, say, “There’s Harry!” and smile. The Child would shriek with delight and giggle and then cover his own eyes. And then shriek and giggle again after uncovering them.
    The Asset believed that this game’s proper designation was ‘peek-a-boo.’ The Asset decided he enjoyed this game, particularly when The Child giggled.

    Aka the title is pretty self-explanatory.

    Summary

    Later, T'Challa would remember it like a blur. He couldn’t say if he screamed or not, nor if he gestured. He did remember running, and the awful realization that, though he tried with all his might, he wouldn’t make it in time. The helplessness he felt, that shiver of it, was something that was shocking in its darkness, because for all that T'Challa had fought, for all he had struggled, for all he had learned, and for all he had gained, he was still too slow.

    BOOM. Just that. A thunderous boom and T'Challa's world changed.

    *

    In which Tony saves T'Chaka, T'Challa is grateful, and they both are all the better for it.

    Summary

    “Hey Peg, you here? You’re never here early. Should I be worried?”

    Tony froze, looking to Peggy for direction. Only then did she think that perhaps she should’ve consulted Angie before absconding with Howard’s child and bringing him to their home.

    Or, the one where Peggy gets tired of Howard's negligence and does something about it.
