    Summary

    "Matthew had no reason to know anything about her, no reason to know her past at all. Jack had told him she was dead, she had asked Jack to let him believe that, and how curious was the average little boy over a mother he could not remember?"

    This takes place half post-season 3 and half in flashbacks, Maggie's pov.

    Prompts: "I Will" by Mitski. Crochet makes a cameo.

    With thanks to my amazing beta. All mistakes are mine.

    WARNING: The show handwaved Maggie's reasoning and mental health a lot. Instead, I gave her postpartum psychosis and bipolar 2 disorder and closed up some plot holes. Stress is a trigger and Maggie isn't always well, right, or fair, especially in the flashbacks. Please take care if any of these things are difficult for you.

    Specifics:
    Ch2: The last paragraph of THEN is a paranoid and delusional episode.
    Ch3: THEN has a long depressive episode, and a bit that can read as unintentional self harm.
    Ch4: In NOW during the Stick part, sexual abuse of a minor is assumed but is refuted with confirmation of canonical physical abuse of a minor. In THEN Maggie displays hypomania, and smol Matt responds to physical bullying by an older child.

    Summary

    The man blinks, surprised, but nods his head a few times, considering. “What about sight? You didn’t mention that. Is that enhanced, too?”

    “No.”

    “And why not?” the man asks with an air of petulance, as though personally offended by Matt’s answer.

    “Because I’m blind,” Matt says with a shrug and a flat, matter of fact tone.

    This catches the man’s attention again. “What? Really? Come here,” he says and waggles his index finger, beckoning Matt over.

    Matt tries to resist, to fight the compulsion driving him to comply, he really does, but it’s as if he’s being controlled remotely and this man works the control panel. The desire builds subtly, like a fog. But as it rolls into his mind and down his spine, it wraps around his ankles. And then his feet move of their own volition, leading him to stand in front of the man.

    “Take off your mask.”

    ----

    What if Matt met Kilgrave? And then, what if he met Jessica before the events of The Defenders? Canon AU set in JJ S1 in which Matt meets Kilgrave and learns first-hand what it's like to suffer under his control, until Jessica helps him escape.

    Written for Longdaysjourney in the 2020 Daredevil/Defenders Exchange.

    Summary

    Matt let the memories wash over him like the few tears running down his cheeks. They were like a devastating blow and a warm embrace all in one; bringing him warmth while reminding him of all the ways he’d failed and hurt the ones he loved.

    Summary

    Luke smiled. “Then let’s make a deal. Stay out of each other’s shit, but…”

    “But what?” Danny asked.

    “But, meet on Matt’s roof every couple weeks and work out how to help each other.” Luke said.

    (Or - the rag-tag group now known as ‘The Defenders’ has had some really hard lives. A decision is made - when they have time, they’ll ‘shoot the shit’ on Matt’s roof and have some fun, goddamnit)

    Summary

    “So, how were you thinking we’d get home? I’d say cab, but it’s probably impossible to find one still in service this late and this far out. But I guess there’s always the F train. I think there’s a stop not too far from here—”

    Matt bristles beside her. At the feel of the tension he is suddenly radiating, Jessica slows and narrows her eyes at him. “Something wrong?”

    He heaves a heavy sigh and shakes his head. “No, it’s nothing. I just … thought we’d walk.”

    She stops short, shivering in place to illustrate her point. “In eight degree weather that’s basically into negative digits with the wind chill?”

    Matt pauses and moves the few paces back to her as he shrugs. “It’s not that far. We walked here, didn’t we? More or less? And isn’t your blood pumping after all that exercise?”

    Jessica scoffs. “Not anymore, it’s not.” ---

    In which Jessica is with Matt on patrol one night, but it's cold and she just wants to take the subway home; however, Matt does not. She gains a greater appreciation for his reasoning when she learns *why* not.

    All you have is your fire
    And the place you need to reach.
    Don't you ever tame your demons

    Summary

    My gift to @SoulFireInc for the Daredevil Secret Santa! The prompt was the song Fill Me Up by Shawn Colvin—story inspired by it. Also covers my Daredevil bingo prompt, “huddling for warmth”.

    “It’s alright, Matt, okay? Everything’s alright.” It’s not, she knows it’s not. Things couldn’t ever be the way they were again, were shattered into millions of razor-sharp pieces that sliced into your skin when you tried to pick them up.

    Summary

    Once a year, on a certain day, Jessica Jones disappears. Trish has long since learnt not to look for her – she'll resurface when she's ready, probably smelling like a distillery. Matt, however, can't just stand by and wait for Jessica's dark day to end. Not when she's so alone. It's the one day she allows herself not to be strong. So Matt will be strong for her.

    Summary

    When Danny Rand goes missing while he and Ward are investigating the disappearance of homeless children, Ward goes to the only people he can think of that 1) know who Danny is besides a once missing billionaire and 2) are 99% more successful than the police at finding and rescuing people. He's more than a little surprised, and a little suspicious, and a LOT grateful that Matt isn't as dead as he was lead to believe.

    Takes place post season 2 Iron Fist, and season 3 for Daredevil.
