    Summary

    “WATSON, COME DOWN HERE AND TAKE YOUR WIFE OFF OF MY HANDS. PLEASE, I BEG OF YOU!” Sherlock hollers.

    “My what?” Joan mutters, snapping the book shut with force and climbing out of her bed. “I’m sorry,” she repeats as she makes her way down the stairs. “My what?”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Jamie Moriarty is a liar and a thief. A murderer. A kidnapper. A criminal mastermind years in the making who likes it. She likes hurting other people to get what she wants. She likes toying with them, picking them apart to see what’s inside, what makes them tick. What makes them cry and bleed and want. She takes what she wants and she does not care how that affects anyone else—how it affects the world writ large.
    (There is something… disturbingly flattering about being something that a person like that wants. There is something equally disturbing about the fact that Joan wants her, back; it’s maw-mouthed and made entirely of teeth, this want of hers, and it’s dangerous and fucked up and very stupid).

    Summary

    After Thanos, Bucky was done with space, done with aliens, done with anything that doesn’t call Earth home. Earth by itself has thrown enough shit at him for several lifetimes. He does not need space to do it, too. That weird raccoon is still sending occasional messages trying to haggle for his arm. A raccoon. From space.

    In the meeting with Maria Rambeau, Sam yelled something about getting a fake certificate for himself before he’d send the civilian spouse of an Avenger into the alien lair. Maria got a dangerous glint in her eye, and that’s how Sam and Bucky ended up in the foyer of S.W.O.R.D. headquarters with a task of obtaining a marriage certificate for themselves as soon as possible.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    “You sure you wanna waste your first marriage on me?” Sam asks. “Considering that you could get married for love now?”
    “Sam, it’s not a big deal,” Bucky groans.
    He doesn't mention that technically, he is getting married for love. A little.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He couldn't make his mouth form any of the polite civilities. So instead, what slipped out was, "Unfair. A man's ex should not be allowed to look this hot at a diplomatic reception."

    Rhodey tilted his head. His forehead was wrinkling in confusion, but Sam could see a little smile playing on Rhodey's lips. "Hello, Sam," he said, sounding bemused. "Not sure what brought that on."

    Sam gave him a grin. "I thought about starting with 'hello'—"

    "A classic," Rhodey said with approval.

    Summary

    Bucky hasn't slept on a bed that would be considered traditionally "comfortable" in more years than he cares to remember. He can still count them, but he'd rather not. And there he was on this couch, weeks ago, smelling like rust and saltwater, and it hadn't been comfortable, per se, but there had been cushions, and pillows, and a spring here and there, just to keep him honest.

    "Don't worry." Sam didn't sneak up behind him; not many people can do that anymore. But still, he stills once he feels him at his back. "I didn't booby trap it. Won't bite. Next time, though." He points with one hand, claps Bucky on the shoulder with the other, and goes off to help Sarah in the kitchen.

    That's Captain America, Bucky thinks. The warmth that spreads through him to think those words again is almost profane.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Are you really going to try to have a serious talk with me while you eat that kids' cereal?"

    "It's Lucky Charms. Do you have a problem with Lucky Charms?"

    "No, it's just, you're asking me to move in with you, and you've got--you're eating these little marshmallow hearts--"

    "And stars and horseshoes, clovers and blue moons," Sam says heavily, seriously, challenging, and Bucky throws his hands up. Sam chews loudly, but then he does set the bowl down. "When you move in, we'll get you the cereal you want, how's about that? What do you want, some Grape Nuts? Raisin Bran?"
