    Summary

    Ever since DC, things haven’t been easy for Bucky Barnes. HYDRA stole everything from him, even his voice, and two months later he’s barely surviving as he struggles to pull the few scraps of himself left into a cohesive whole.

    Until he gets his hands on a blanket and everything changes. Fascinated by its color and softness, he begins a journey he never would have imagined. Taken in by a stranger who teaches him to knit, Bucky slowly discovers he is so much more than a dropped stitch in the fabric of life. With time, patience, and the help of a few who have had their eyes on him for a long time, Bucky begins to turn himself into something stronger, softer and more beautiful than before, weaving a tapestry of friendship, laughter and love warm enough to embrace the entire world, fix old wrongs, and wrap around the only other person who never stopped believing in him.

    Warnings: This story contains a mute Bucky, lots of blankets, scoodies and pompoms, Greek food and a demon kitten. It also contains a Steve who is still too stupid not to wear a hat when it’s cold out, but is as devoted to Bucky as ever, wanting nothing more than to spend the rest of his days snuggling beneath blankets.

    Summary

    Oliver is a soon-to-be professor for Archeology. On his trip to the Mediterranean Sea in the summer of 1983 he just wanted to research about the myths of ancient times. Not in his wildest imagination had he believed to find himself drowned into a dreamlike world, enchanted by a beautiful siren called Elio.

    Elio is held captive in the mystique world of Circe.
    Centuries passed and not a single soul withstood the dread of his songs. But when a young archeologist dives into the depths of Elio´s cavern, their worlds collide.

    Can Oliver break the ban of the sirens?
    And will Elio find true love in a twisted time?

    Summary

    “Welcome home!” Apollo threw his arms out as he lead his brothers into their new living room. Their not so glorious or godly living room. “It is… small,” Dionysus commented. He didn’t feel the need to hide his scepticism. “It is authentic,” Apollo explained. “If we are going to pretend to be mortals, we need to live like mortals. We couldn’t very well get a penthouse apartment, now could we?” “Why not?” Hermes asked as he closed the door to the apartment behind them. “I have a penthouse in Chicago. It is nice.”

    Summary

    Ben hadn't realised how much he leaned on Audrey for support and guidance. How he confided in her. How she cared about and loved him (though he wasn't too aware of just how deeply she did).

    How he missed his best and closest friend. He hadn't realised how much he fucked her over because he was under the impression that there was no hard feelings. Cue the whole Queen Of Mean fiasco.

    Now that that was over he's noticed some drastic changes in Audrey. Changes he...appreciates more. And things he hadn't realised about her that were always there in the first place.

    But what really shocked Ben was the fact that he felt little to nothing when he found Mal with another guy...for the second time.

    Summary

    When Nobara is summoned to underworld Tartarus (much to Utahime’s vexation and Gojo’s amusement), she assumes it’s Sukuna’s way of putting the gods and goddess in their place, and she’s the representative. She knows Sukuna will mess with her, but to her chagrin, it’s not with the brutal sex and violence he’s notorious for.

    Instead, Sukuna involves her with mysterious, difficult, demigod Fushiguro Megumi and a likely death sentence in six months’ time. Somehow Gojo and Utahime have a part in it and there’s more to this odd arrangement than meets the eye.

    Mingjue waved a hand, and flowers bloomed between the elm tree’s roots. He laughed when Xichen bent to pick them with a delighted smile, tucking a soft pink daisy behind Mingjue’s ear. He pecked Mingjue’s cheek and whirled around, Cerberus barking in tandem to his footsteps.

    Summary

    As almighty god of love, pleasure, passion, beauty, and desire (et cetera et cetera, you can google him), Keigo’s accustomed to the adoring crowds of gods and mortals nipping at his heels as he emerges from a clamshell or crashes a party or buys his dinosaur chicken nuggets at the grocery store. He’s never in his life been short of a date for a party or a response to “u up?”.

    That’s what makes this conundrum so frustrating.

    Aphrodite is the fairest. Ares takes him down a peg. Dionysus is just happy to be invited.

    Summary

    Evie cared for and loved him deeply. But secretly.
    And Ben more than returned those feelings. Not so secretly.

     

    How unfortunate it was that the two's visible attraction to one another at their first meeting took place right in front of Mal. Truly unfortunate indeed.

    Or so Mal thinks.
