    Summary

    A small part of him wondered if feeling nothing was doing more harm than good. If blocking all the bad memories was better than reminding himself of the good ones, but then he remembered that all the good memories would do was remind him of all the people he’d lost, all the people he’d buried, all the people he’d failed to keep safe…

    Did he even have any good memories left?

    Summary

    Juno would be the first to admit that the last year of his life has been pretty shit, but having Peter Nureyev appear, sick and unwillingly honest and in need of help, really does not make anything better.

    This fic entirely ignores the events of S2.

    Summary

    The weight of two crowns rested on Emory Bordelon's shoulders for the first twenty-one years of his life and, according to the court, it seems a weight he was custom-built to carry. When terrible events shift that burden to his younger brother, Emory is left with nothing but the ashes of the world he used to live in and the nightmares of what ruined it all. The only real anchor he has left to the land that used to be his is one northern rebel with a penchant for self-destruction.

    -----
    Atara never planned to be a leader. His life was spent cleaning up after the messes his older brother left behind, always aware that he was really only ever destined to be the extra prince. The contingency plan should something terrible happen to Emory. When it does, he'll either carry the mantle or he'll be crushed by it.

    Summary

    “What's the job?”

    “Nothing to stretch the limits of your talents, just distracting Jim Gordon until I say so.” One feral dog to cage another.

    Zsasz refused to rise to the bait and bristle at the deliberate provocation in Mario’s tone, regarding him as blankly as the space between the stars. “You don't want me to…” He tilted his head significantly, tongue clicking lightly against his teeth, “...take the competition off the board for you?”

    Summary

    Sometimes the past wants to eat him alive and sometimes it just sits there across from him and stares at him like it knows what he wants, as if it understands the betrayal of his body and his mind and forbids him normalized action. There's always one surefire thing in his life that chases the past back down his throat, buries it deep in his gut to wait another day, and if it burns him from the inside out, too? Well that's just life, isn’t it?

    Summary

    Taking a deep breath to calm his nerves, he looked over the rooftop one last time. It was the one where his hero had crushed his dreams. Where All Might had told him he couldn’t become a hero. That he couldn’t achieve the only thing he ever wanted.

    More tears slid down his freckled cheeks. Gripping the wet, slipper railing tighter, he carefully climbed over it. After he got to the other side, he stood there for a moment, letting the wind dance in his hair and caress his face. His eyes fell closed, as he silently apologizes to his mom one last time. And then he let go.


    Overhaul saves Midoriya from a deadly fall and realizes he wants to keep him for himself. Based on a roleplay.

    Summary

    Geoffrey never thought he'd be sleeping with the Skal, either, so perhaps it shouldn't surprise him when they end up sharing more than a bed, like the stories of the old and new scars twisting their minds. Yes, he's a likeable monster, that Sean Hampton, which is a worrying thought.

    Summary

    Ben wandered into the gas station, grabbed a sundrop and a pack of oreos. Depressing. At birth everyone has blood submitted into a vast database, if you have the money you can pay to use the resource to seek out your soulmate. Ben sighed, his parent's disowned him when he was 17... cut him off. 31, had no money to find her. He lived a nomad's life. He was headed to use his friend's cabin, hoping a little time in the mountains would clear his head. He needed a restart. He was tired of pointless relationships...empty promises. He liked building things. That was his plan. He went to the register to pay, a family walked in. The daughter giggling as she grabbed skittles, a kit kat. The mother scolding her. He paid, started to drift toward the exit. He felt a pain in his chest, no? The girl... she was his... he saw it in his mind... her blood called his. She was unaware it seemed ...not of age yet? He swallowed. She went out ahead of him, her parent's were paying now. He saw her round the corner of the building, bathroom? He quickly got in his car, pulled around the building. Watching out, he opened his back door. When she popped out he grabbed her from behind, holding her until she passed out. No going back...he drove.

    Summary

    James "Bucky" Barnes died in 1971 after twenty-six years of torture under HYDRA. The Winter Soldier is not Bucky Barnes, he doesn't even like Bucky Barnes. Steve Rogers doesn't understand this, and the idea that Steve wants to warp him into someone he doesn't really care for annoys the Soldier. He will kill him for the offenses against him, those against Natalia, and those against Tony Stark, because none of them deserve that.

    The story where the Winter Soldier is a bad influence, and Tony loves bad influences. Natalia and Rhodey are along for the ride, and for their idiot friends that are actually too brilliant for their own good.

    Note: There is some major character bashing, maybe. I'm not good at telling sometimes, but I really do not like certain characters and you will definitely know which ones they are. ALSO I will be posting on Fridays, hopefully. Chapters 5-13 will be updated on a Friday. I have no idea after that, but I'll try!
