    Summary

    Shuri and Wanda cleared Bucky's triggers shortly after Killmonger's attempted coup, and he and Steve went on the run. But it turns out there's more to "fixing Bucky's head" than "getting Hydra out of it." When a group of rogue scientists manage to neutralize the serum and make Steve very sick--pre-serum "this is bad" kind of sick--and they're cut off from contact with Wakanda, Bucky knows only one person with resources to help.

    He calls Tony and surrenders on the condition that Tony tries to help Steve.

    From there, it's basically three variously messed-up guys’ trajectories from "This Is Fine", "Reasonably Speaking I Know It’s Fine", "I Will Be Fine With It" to actually being fine, guest-starring a far-better-adjusted teenage boy who climbs walls, a 1957 Ford Thunderbird, two women with a keen sense of the absurd, and Bruce, the Zen master of “it’s fine that it’s not fine.”

    Add in the fact that Bucky's been secretly in love with Steve since the thirties and things only get harder. Learning to be a person is the hardest thing Bucky Barnes will ever have to do--but he's got company along the way.

    Summary

    There is a smoking crater off Route 50…

    A star falls from the sky, and people screech to a stop on the highway. Emergency vehicles are dispatched. Journalists abandon their programming halfway through the nightly news. In a nondescript parking garage, a team of government operatives load dart guns and pile into a black sedan.

    Impact. The earth shakes. The ground catches fire.

    The entire planet holds its breath, cherishing each moment the world remains unchanged because they should have gone the way of the dinosaurs.

    But it isn’t unchanged. There is a smoking crater off Route 50.

    …And it’s empty.

    Or: Where Cas is a fallen star (read: alien) who hates humanity, Dean is a man with a complicated past, and Charlie is living in what she thinks is a Neil Gaiman novel, but is actually a Guillermo Del Toro film.

    Summary

    "When I get away from skating, two L words come to mind, Life and Love. I've been neglecting both for over twenty years." - Victor Nikiforov

    Victor makes friends with depression before he knows its name, grows up with the ghost of it in his bones, gets acclimated to the chill. He's a changeling's child, a chameleon; he makes himself into all the things people want. He's acclimated to his winter life, cold and stark and glittering success.

    He has everything a person could possibly want. There's no reason for discontent.

    That is, there's no reason for disconent until Katsuki Yuuri tumbles into his arms in Sochi. Suddenly the lies Victor has told himself about his own happiness for years are pouring through his fingers like sand and the things he doesn't have at all are thrown in stark relief: he has a career and no life; he has a passion and no love.

    Or: a retelling of those twenty years of neglect, that one night in Sochi, and why the season that gave both of those things back to Victor Nikiforov was the one he spent being Katsuki Yuuri's coach.

    Summary

    It was addictive, the feeling of Draco Malfoy telling him things in a soft voice early in the morning. Harry felt like he was taming a wild animal, or petting a cat that hated everybody else. This train existed outside of time, that was the only explanation Harry could come up with as to why Malfoy was actually having a civil conversation with him right now.

    Summary

    A few weeks after Sam managed to turn a ridiculous situation to his advantage (literally being offered as a sacrifice to a pagan god, because apparently this is his life), Coyote turns up at Stanford to keep his end of the bargain: that is, handing over the yellow-eyed demon responsible for Mary Winchester’s death. Getting back in touch with Dean and Dad to end their vengeance quest changes things for the better. So does settling down in a house off-campus with his brother and his new friends - Jo, Jess, and Charlie, and an annoying pagan god who keeps popping up to get on Dean’s nerves. But the apocalypse is not to be so easily derailed… and why does Coyote refuse to lend a hand?
