    Summary

    There had been at least a couple times that day where she easily could have broken away or alerted someone about her predicament. The pilot of the airplane Red had chartered, for instance. Or the hotel clerk, when he signed them in after their landing in California. But she hadn’t. And…why?

    (Or, Paula self-reflects as she gets ready for the masquerade ball. As before, the original short story can be found here.)

    Summary

    Darcy Lewis was born in the carnival. At least, that’s what people said. It was kinder than the truth: that Darcy Lewis was likely born in someone’s home but left in a patched-up carpetbag by the ferris wheel when she was no more than a few pounds of screamin’ mad and a swath of thick, dark hair. Wrapped in a tattered blanket, pinned together with a note that read 'Can’t afford another one.'

    The carnival wasn’t a place for children, but they made a place for Darcy. They named her after the first intersection they came to on their way out of town. Darcy Boulevard and Lewis Street. And then she was theirs. The youngest member of the Kirby Brothers Traveling Carnival of Marvels.

    Summary

    Monsters return to the surface. Frisk returns to the custody of the only family member that's ever actually wanted them around, their maternal grandfather, and starts to recover from the life they lived before they came to the Underground. As everyone tries to figure out how to navigate and coexist in this new environment, it becomes clear that this is going to be a long, complicated journey towards coexistence. It won't be easy, but it can be done... assuming no one has any dark secrets that might end up making this any more complex than it needs to be.

    Formerly titled "A Light Unto My Path" before I binged some Shakespeare plays and stumbled upon a more thematically relevant title.

    Summary

    "Whadaya want me to do?"

    "Just...stick around? I'm bored. I got some games I need another person to play with, and my sister's not home. And...and, y'know, if I get hungry you can run over to the kitchen to get a snack for me. Stuff like that. You'd be like...like my personal manservant or something, for the day."

    Steve looks troubled.

    "I'll still pay you the five bucks," Bucky says, with a cheeky grin. "Please; it's so boring being laid up."

    Steve looks even more troubled; he glances at the other buildings lining the street, and Bucky can tell he's calculating the likelihood that anyone else would take him up on his offer of janitorial services. A gust of wind coats Bucky's face with cold; he sees Steve shiver and, unconsciously, fold his arms across his chest.

    "Goin' once, goin' twice..."

     

    In which Steve and Bucky come from different worlds, but share the same soul nonetheless.

     

    Note: This is the COTS 'verse remix of the original story

    Summary

    It had been one thing to watch Monty Lewis kiss her. The same could not be said for Eric Kendall.

    (Missing/expanded scene. Could be considered a companion piece of sorts to this fic, as the one picks up right where the other leaves off. Also, as before, the original short story can be read here.)

    Summary

    For a sick moment, reality tilted, then snapped back into place with horrifying clarity. “You!” she gasped. “You, Red, and the butler, Benson, are the same! You got that place in my home just to find out about me, didn’t you?”

    (Expanded scene from the short story. Basic gist: Heroine gets kidnapped by anti-hero/villain, who intends to use her in a bank robbery scheme. Sexual tension and enemies-to-lovers ensue. As before, you can find more details in the pre-fic notes of this story.)
