    Summary

    It’s dark, and Bruce can’t breathe.

    He has about six clear seconds of memory - dread, a tilting floor, him falling and reaching and missing - and also, from before that, a vague recollection of what he had for lunch and a sharper one of the paperwork he filled out for HR this morning. Nothing clear enough to determine where he is right now, and why his ribcage is being crushed into his spine.

    He isn’t called ‘detective’ for nothing, though. The concrete dust in his mouth and the sounds around him of weights still shifting to settle is enough of a clue to get a vague idea.

    Summary

    The effects of the Lazarus Pit don’t last forever. Just ask Ra’s.

    The thing is, Jason thought that might be a problem he’d have to deal with later. Like, ‘towards the end of a natural human lifespan’ later, in the event that he reached old age in his round two at all. Instead, he’s twenty-four, and he’s pretty sure he’s dying.

    Or worse, not dying. It wasn’t, after all, the Lazarus Pit that brought him back to life. It just restored the function of his brain and everything that makes him himself along with it. Which he now seems to be losing.

    Summary

    The first time Aaron sees Katelyn, she’s smiling in her bright-coloured Vixen uniform, waving to the crowded court grandstands, joining arms with the pretty girl next to her. He’s an athlete, but she’s athletic, all grace and power, and he’s not stupid enough to be tripping over himself because of any girl, but if he were –

    He’s not. He’s not that stupid, and girls like that are vibrant daydreams for boys like him, born out of the gutter. Even if he didn’t have the knife of his brother pressed to his spine, he couldn’t –

    He can’t. It’s very simple, except for how it’s not.

    Summary

    The subject of that uncertainty is currently being zipped into the front of Jason’s body armour. “Good thing she’s so little. Toddler would be a tight fit.”

    “Yeah, it’s great,” Dick mutters, noting the careful arm Jason curls around his chest to keep her steady. He’s got his helmet back on, at least. “Go.”

    “Going,” Jason says, and melts away into the crowd like a guy his size definitely should not be able to do.

    “Did he have a baby?” The EMT asks tentatively.

    “Don’t be ridiculous,” Dick replies.

    Summary

    It's been six months. Steve has a new job, Natasha has questions, and Bucky has a very spotty memory. Those things are more related than anyone other than Clint Barton can explain - wherever the hell he is now.

    Summary

    The Winter Soldier didn’t have a daemon, or at least not one anyone ever saw. Common consensus in the intelligence community was that it was something small he kept inside his clothes, but there were always whispers among not-quite-senior-enough agents that he just didn’t have one. That he’d been born without one, or that he was severed, a dead man walking.

    Bucky Barnes, though - he definitely does have a daemon.

    Or: Clint's daemon makes a new friend, and he's just along for the ride. Except not quite.

    Summary

    Objectively, it absolutely is Steve’s fault.

    They’d been side-of-stage at an event waiting for an opportunity to return to their seats, and Tony had been cold, and it had been perfectly natural for Steve to pull him into his body and wrap him up in his arms. Tony certainly hadn’t protested - it had been a rare quiet moment amidst the bustle of a busy evening in their busy lives, and they’d just...stayed. Just for a little while.

    Which meant that some enterprising individual armed with a cellphone had plenty of time to snap a photo of them and upload it straight to Twitter.

    Summary

    The telepathy had felt like something of an afterthought to the whole brainwashing experience, which was why Clint didn’t bother mentioning it to people.

    “An evil alien God took control of my mind and made me kill a whole bunch of people, then tried to take over the world,” was pretty much enough without “oh, and as a side effect, I now have a mental connection with a Norwegian-American astrophysicist,” on top of it.

    Summary

    There’s some noise that isn’t Clint up ahead, and Bucky squints into the dark. Clint has a flashlight, the circle of light from which is bobbing back and forth across the floor and walls. Bucky’s low-light vision is pretty good - hence why he’s not carrying a flashlight himself - but all he can tell is that it’s not a robot. In his experience, they’re not that subtle.

    After a moment the sound gets a little louder, and the shape of it coalesces into something recognisable.

    “Ugh, rat,” Clint mutters, right as said rat skitters past him and then Bucky, within a few inches of Bucky’s boot.

    The little Winter-Soldier-processing voice in his head says, Rattus norvegicus, 9 inches. The Bucky-Barnes voice says, oh fuck.

    Summary

    “My point is that you should not base your ideas of typical teenage experiences on films where most of the teenagers involved end up brutally murdered,” Blue says. “Plus, you know. Our lives thus far.”

    “This is not like that,” Gansey says. “That was magic. This is teenage incompetence, and the worst that will come of it is irresponsible fire management involving the candles.”

    The Gangsey goes camping. It goes smoothly until it doesn't.

    Summary

    It starts with a sore throat.

    That’s literally it. A sore throat. Dex got the flu once when he was seventeen – the real flu, where you vomit and develop weird complications and actually beg for the sweet release of death – so it stands to reason that he just…ignores it.

    Dex is a first-line student athlete with a demanding major. He doesn’t have time to be sick.

    Summary

    Nursey is annoying as fuck in the general sense, but he’s a fairly decent roommate - tidy but not neurotically so, uses his earphones, and doesn’t sexile Dex, all of which makes him an improvement on Troy who Dex roomed with freshman year.

    It could be worse. Dex could be nursing an enormous, unrequited, painful crush on his roommate and liney which would make every second of spending time together literal torture.

    Oh, wait.

    Summary

    For a long second there is no response. Then the hand twitches and breaks into movement, folding back the blankets to reveal a clump of wild fair hair and one blinking eye. Adam’s I’m-less-awake-than-I-sound-which-isn’t-very voice says, “Whuh?”
