  1. Summary

    The continuing adventures of Warden Commander Amell - because tragedy does not wait for you.
    ---

    BENEATH the shadow of dawn’s aerial cope,
    With eyes enkindled as the sun’s own sphere,
    Hope from the front of youth in godlike cheer
    Looks Godward, past the shades where blind men grope
    Round the dark door that prayers nor dreams can ope,
    And makes for joy the very darkness dear
    That gives her wide wings play; nor dreams that fear
    At noon may rise and pierce the heart of hope.
    Then, when the soul leaves off to dream and yearn,
    May truth first purge her eyesight to discern
    What once being known leaves time no power to appal;
    Till youth at last, ere yet youth be not, learn
    The kind wise word that falls from years that fall—
    “Hope thou not much, and fear thou not at all.”
    ~ Algernon Charles Swinburne

    Summary

    Inspired by prompt: 'Peter is unmasked on live television, and everyone goes berserk—you've already heard this one but here's the twist—he's wide-eyed, staring into the camera, frightened, but not because of his own safety. The first thing that comes out of his mouth is, "Someone please, please protect my Aunt May." And the entirety of New York cries out simultaneously. Heroes and neighbours and fellow students rain down on the Parker house, ready to defend her.'

    Summary

    Finch surveyed the room again through his glasses, but it did not become any less overbright with harsh fluorescents, it did not become any less damp, cold, concreted, stuffy or stale, the chair he sat on became no less roughly wooden and he, alas, remained absolutely, totally naked.

    Life choices, the grim voice of his common sense cut in. Think on them.

    Two men meet under the most dire of circumstances and must rely on each other to survive - and rise. Inspired by Macx's superlative Firewall series, with a twist, and a twist, and a twist.

    Summary

    Yuuri decides not to enter the world of professional skating at a young age. This doesn't mean it doesn't find and love him anyway.

    ["I love it on my own here, where I don't have to fight so hard." Yuuko records Yuuri saying once when the triplets weren't even a bump in her belly. Eyes tracing the trails his skates leave in the ice as he skates backwards in front of her in slow curves. "Crowds would just keep me from that and then there'd be no point in it. Skating makes me happy now in a way I don't think would be possible if I tried to go pro."]
