    Summary

    After Avengers movie night falls through again Clint drags Sam and Steve to a local dive bar for some trivia.

    Run by a super-smart, extra salty vet with a cyborg arm and his equally snarky sister, trivia soon becomes Steve's new obsession. Only because he wants to win though.

    It has nothing, NOTHING to do with the stormy gray eyes of his host, or the thick framed glasses the man wears, or even the fact that his cheekbones make Steve's fingers itch for a pencil.

    It's just a friendly game of bar trivia...right?

    Summary

    Steve is still adjusting to life in the 21st century. His life nowadays is mostly lonely. Though he appreciates her good intentions, he always rebuffs Natasha's efforts to set him up on a date; he simply isn't interested in pursuing anything romantic.

    At least, until Steve gets drunk on Asgardian liquor and a ridiculously handsome stranger at the bar catches his eye.

    Summary

    Runs, when the idea was first proposed, were heavily protested, mostly by angry betas and omegas who thought the whole thing was disgraceful, disrespectful, humiliating and degrading. The first Run proved everyone wrong. It was emboldening, powerful, freeing. To pair omegas biologically with an alpha was not only smart, but diplomatic. To give them the opportunity to make the alpha work for what they wanted was a unique twist on the archaic gender roles and stereotypes, and over the next decade, Runs became a popular way for young and healthy people to find the mate best suited for them.

    As soon as Dean presented as an omega, he knew it was what he was destined for.

    Dean Winchester has never been caught.

    Summary

    "Hello, Dean. It's Castiel. We- you... hate my car."

    Castiel's job sucks. His car sucks. His life, in general, sucks. He's not anywhere near a midlife crisis, but he feels something within him... slipping.

    Enter Dean Winchester, who is pretty sure all of Castiel's issues could be resolved if he would just set his piece of shit car on fire and go buy a new one. Bit by bit, Dean and his daughter Claire melt the ice frozen around Castiel's cranky, bitter heart. Bit by bit, Castiel starts to think that maybe... maybe, things aren't so bad after all. His grey life is slowly starting to bleed color.
