    Summary

    Tony had not always been Anthony Edward Stark.
    A long time ago (And I mean a really fucking long time ago. Gods.)
    He had been going by something a little bit different.

    Or the greek fusion fic that no one asked for. Where Tony is Iron Man, Avenger of the Earth, and Hephaestus, god of fire and metalworking.

    (Previous knowledge of Greek mythology not necessary to read this fic.)

    Summary

    In which it takes some more time for Eglantine and Emelius to find each other, and themselves. It may not be the easiest thing when you're a practical witch who always preferred usefulness to emotions, and a magician with an inferiority complex and a tendency to always run for the door. Fortunately, the children are there, and they are a force to be reckoned with.
    Oh, and there's still a war to stop: the year is 1941, and it is high time everyone remembers they can use magic.
    Mostly a slow-burn, but also a take on how you build a family and happily divert History's course (and in that respect also carelessly uchronic). And really just my silly love letter to Angela Lansbury.

    Summary

    It's December 1944. Easy Company holds the line in the Ardennes near Bastogne, a task the Toccoa paratroopers are seeing far more difficult to tackle due to a lack of proper resources. Surrounded by the enemy and suffering from heavy casualties, any chance of hope looks bleak for the Screaming Eagles. Still, through the artillery shellings, the paratroopers have survived this far thanks to one of their own.
    Eugene Roe, Easy's soft-spoken Cajun medic, is feeling the brunt of the war the most. He is on the verge of succumbing to combat fatigue from treating wounded soldiers and is running dangerously low on medical supplies. He often puts himself in harm's way to provide the best care, a method that's worked for him since the start of the war, however its slowly beginning to take a toll. While on a supply run to Bastogne, Eugene meets a beautiful nurse who seems to understand Eugene better than any of the soldiers he’s fighting besides, resulting in the two falling in love. But Eugene's biggest challenge will be facing the harsh reality of war, both for soldiers and others alike. Will he prevail and not succumb to the stress to keep himself and the soldiers together? Morphine, scissors and bandages are mandatory.

    Summary

    New York, 1946

    “At their smallest components, humans are indistinguishable from forest fires.” Logan Sul swirled his glass of scotch around idly, watching the ice clink together. “All it takes is the smallest spark to set them off.” He casually took a sip, amber eyes piercing each member of the assembled group.

    Virgil Avery, the paranoid security guard.

    Patton Parker, the far too-cheerful nightclub owner.

    Roman Torres, the high-strung star.

    Viper Salem, the obsessive widow.

    Dorian Arya, the mysterious ex-business partner

    “Any singular person is more than capable of being a murderer.” He set his glass down on the side table, dabbing at his mouth with his handkerchief. He turned back to the group and smiled viciously, a hunter with his sights set on prey. “And one of you is.”

    Summary

    "Brother of Rahab, Father Elliot had called him. As Steve fell asleep, he dreamed of Nazis invading New York and an American spy with Bucky’s face hunting for a safe place to hide…" – intertwined, prelude.
    On December 7th, 1940, Japanese planes bombed Pearl Harbor. On May 8th, 1944, Nazi troops set foot in New York. On January 10th, 1945, Adolf Hitler was assassinated by a man now gone down in history as Captain America. Unfortunately, Captain America was killed after taking down Hitler, but his successful mission led to the Nazi invasion of the United States turning and the end of World War II. History recounts the legendary shot that took down Hitler, but it will always ponder why Captain America killed Dr. Johann Schmidt with the very next bullet.
    But before that, long before that, there was first an American sniper who needed a safe place to hide. There was first a prostitute turned spy who would take him in. There was first a strained relationship and a bittersweet reunion to be had, and when it was all over, there was then an escape to take place. After all, who would look for an American hero in Canada?

    Summary

    Her fingers hover gently over the steel blade of her old sword, rusted over by the passage of time, and yet so familiar to her all the same. “You kept it?”

    “I kept meaning to give it back to you, but we were always so fleeting... just two ships passing in the night.”

    “It’s been a long night,” she joked, then they both let out noises somewhere between sobs and laughter as they looked over the room, which was full of the various artifacts that they’d collected. Centuries worth of countless possessions filled the room, covered the shelves, and hung from the walls.

    “This is every piece of the story we’ve written,” Ben told her, walking around to her other side as he lifted a framed photo of them outside of her apartment in 1922, and looked at it closely. “The good...” He gestured to the photo, then he set it down, and moved on to the plague mask resting on the table nearby. “The bad...” His gaze fell next on the candlestick, which had rested on a mantle piece in a French castle that had long since fallen to ashes. “And everything in between.”
    --

    Ben and Rey are rendered immortal after being struck by lightning at the precise same moment, and keep running into one another as the centuries drag on.
