    Summary

    "Matthew had no reason to know anything about her, no reason to know her past at all. Jack had told him she was dead, she had asked Jack to let him believe that, and how curious was the average little boy over a mother he could not remember?"

    This takes place half post-season 3 and half in flashbacks, Maggie's pov.

    Prompts: "I Will" by Mitski. Crochet makes a cameo.

    With thanks to my amazing beta. All mistakes are mine.

    WARNING: The show handwaved Maggie's reasoning and mental health a lot. Instead, I gave her postpartum psychosis and bipolar 2 disorder and closed up some plot holes. Stress is a trigger and Maggie isn't always well, right, or fair, especially in the flashbacks. Please take care if any of these things are difficult for you.

    Specifics:
    Ch2: The last paragraph of THEN is a paranoid and delusional episode.
    Ch3: THEN has a long depressive episode, and a bit that can read as unintentional self harm.
    Ch4: In NOW during the Stick part, sexual abuse of a minor is assumed but is refuted with confirmation of canonical physical abuse of a minor. In THEN Maggie displays hypomania, and smol Matt responds to physical bullying by an older child.

    Summary

    No one gets kidnapped by dragons anymore. No one but Foggy Nelson, apparently. Well, ok, he's determined NOT to be kidnapped by a dragon, it's fine, people dodge prophecies all the time, right? Right. It's fine.

    Foggy stays in the city, gets a drop-dead gorgeous best friend, graduates law school, and otherwise distracts himself from his impending doom.

    For the prompt: "Wings"

    Summary

    Destiny can't be changed, Matt. All roads lead to the same destination.

    This whole situation makes Matt uneasy. It’s nothing like that, it’s clearly different, but at the same time it’s Fisk all over again, with Matt potentially putting all their lives in danger. It’s Castle all over again, with Matt forcing them into a case that Foggy doesn’t like and wasn’t consulted on. Matt aches to reach out to Foggy and to reassure him that this time it will be different, that this time they will be ready and Matt will not lie and Matt will do better. That this time they will do it together.

    But Matt doesn’t know how to do comfort. So when he tries, the width of the corridor seems an unbridgeable chasm between them and all that Matt is capable of is, “It will be okay.”

    Summary

    Now for something completely different. A while back, it occurred to me that a famous fictional detective lived in Hell’s Kitchen, in a brownstone on West 35th Street near the Hudson River. I wondered what might happen if Nero Wolfe met Daredevil. This story is the result. It takes place in a 1950s AU and is written in the style of the Nero Wolfe books, a first-person narrative by Wolfe’s confidential assistant, Archie Goodwin.
