    Summary

    Turns out when you're missing an arm, everyone asks are you okay? all the damn time. And when your soulmark is one of the most common questions in English, it's even worse.

    Generic soulmarks are a bitch.

    Summary

    He usually kept it covered. Whether it be with long sleeves, a cuff of some sort, or make up Natasha skillfully showed him how to apply.

    He didn’t cover it up because he was ashamed or because he was one of those people who didn’t like others knowing who his soulmate was- no. He covered it up out of respect. Respect for his fallen partner, and respect for himself because he knew looking at those swoopy lines of James B. Barnes on his wrist always made him crumble like his legs were kicked down.

    When he crashed into the ice all those years ago he thought he was going to see Bucky again- he thought he was finally going to be with Bucky without people giving them ugly looks and throwing slurs their way.

    He thought he was going to be happy again.

    (Or: The soulmate AU where Steve and Bucky are soulmates, Bucky fell, Steve hurts, they meet again like men through time, there's lots of hugging, and Bucky wants his tattoo back. )

    Summary

    It's not a mark or a thread that distinguishes a soulmate; instead, it's a physical sensation, a bio-resonant connection—a rhythm to your breath, a cadence in your blood, the echo of an extra pulse inside your chest that proves your heart's not quite beating by itself, anymore; that it was always waiting for a matching set of notes to make a melody, and now it's singing, now it's soaring. Now you're whole.

    But when what you've got is a pair of tricky lungs, faulty blood, and a bum ticker, it doesn't matter how strong your soul is: the harmony will barely rise above a whisper, the resonance will almost always strike too weak. So it's no one's fault, really, if a person misses the fact that his soulmate's standing right in front of him.

    It's no one's fault if it takes the better part of a century to finally see.

    Summary

    Izuku ignored Bakugou’s verbal jab, It would just be some empty insult, as it always was, Izuku focused on his headache. He really shouldn't overuse his quirk. Izuku stepped into the cornerstore, passing by the magazines with shocking titles like “The end of the world?!”

    “The chances of the world ending in the next three years is 99.3%”

    Izuku stopped in his tracks.
