  1. Summary

    Sometimes a story doesn't want to let you go even after you think that you are done with it. Seeing as this seems to happen to me rather more often lately I thought I'd make a series to let you guys know what is still on the table so to speak.

  2. Summary

    Regarding the Problem of Susan - which is less of a problem and more of a way to survive if you know what I mean.
    or
    In Narnia Susan had a crown and a bow. Here she has lipstick and nylon. She wields both of those with all the efficiency of a former queen. One must use the weapons available to them after all.
    or
    Because no one can truly forget living, ruling, in another world like we are told she had. There is no forgetting, only moving on. That process looks different for everyone. Everyone deals with things differently. This is Susan's way.

  3. Summary

    Is it a coincidence that the three men in the show who have the greatest effect on destiny all have blue eyes? I think not. The universe is rarely so lazy.
    [A series of unconnected one shots ft destiny, doom and blue eyes - but no chicken. For now.]
    [Mordred-centric]

  4. Summary

    A series of unrelated one shots with one thing in common- Tony Stark is a Holmes. Or half a Holmes technically. Its also the world's best kept secret (until it isn't, that is).

  5. Summary

    After the events of Civil War, Tony is burnt out. Done. Finished. He's just so tired of the lies and the betrayals and getting kicked down again and again and again. He's not allowed to stay that way though, according to Loki. The Trickster needs him because he knows what is coming. He knows the Chitauri will be back, with something much worse following. So he decides to help the genius out - in true Loki fashion that is. After all, who doesn't want a fresh start? Literally.
    In which Tony is de-aged to a seventeen year old again and then given the mission to save the world. Should be fun. Right? (Let the explosions begin.)

    Summary

    The Avengers had been a team for almost four years before Steve had found and rescued Bucky, and they had been living together since basically day one. They had worked, fought and lived together for four years. Bucky’s six months in the tower appeared almost insignificant in comparison, and he could see that in the way the team was around each other: the ease between them, the physical contact, the jokes, the bright smiles, the trust.

    Somewhere along the line, the Avengers had become a family, and Bucky was not a part of it.

    (For the prompts: "Everyone lives together happily in the Tower AU and Bucky is having trouble feeling like he belongs. Tony slowly wins him over" + "Magic of any sort")

    Summary

    Tony didn't mean to become Steve's BFF and the greatest thorn in his side at the same time, it just sort of happened. In a world where Tony Stark didn't come out as Iron Man, he has managed to keep his identity a closely guarded secret, even from many of his teammates... the only problem is Steve Rogers seems to be falling for Iron Man, and he doesn't much care for Tony Stark.

    Summary

    “I am Bucky.” The phrase feels like any other phrase from his mouth. There is no weight to the statement, no assurance ringing deep within him that it’s true. ‘I am the Asset,’ has more meaning to him than the name ‘Bucky Barnes.’

    “I am th - Bucky,” he says, the change coming out of his mouth without permission. “I am th-” e Asset, “Bucky. I am Bucky.”

    The trigger words are gone, but now there is something in their place - something that only lets him speak as Bucky.

    And he is not Bucky Barnes.

    Summary

    Steve’s heart ached in pain, and his eyes burned with unshed tears. The first words that came out of his mouth were hoarse and raw. “What’s wrong with my wings ma?”

    His ma wasn’t happy that his translucent wings turned to something colorful when he finally came of age for it to molt; she looked terrified when she looked at them. He knew that, with the way Sarah looked at them, his wings weren’t something to be proud of, no matter how beautiful he initially thought they were.

    Sarah slowly walked over to him, trying to mask her fear and her sadness, coming up to hug him. But he noticed that that hug was slightly more impassioned; she was drawing away from him.

    “Black wings are bad luck,” she said into his ear. “They remind people of death. Don’t ever show anybody your wings.”
