    Summary

    When Toni was seven, her soulmarks manifested: a red star edged in silver under her right collar bone, and a white star edged in blue under her left collar bone. Mama told her never to show them to anyone, because the Starks have enemies, and those enemies could use the soulmarks against her. She didn't see how. They were only stupid stars that didn't do anything but feel cold.

    By the time she's fifteen, she learns more about the marks, and the men they signify. Red Star wanders in and out of her life without seeming to remember her from one encounter to the next, and she's pretty sure White Star was lost decades ago. Soulmates, she decides, are useless flights of fantasy, because hers certainly aren't the supportive life partners all the stories say they're supposed to be.

    But she's a grown-ass woman now, and it doesn't really matter if she wants them or not. It really doesn't matter if she's a loose cannon, and one is with SHIELD and the other with HYDRA.

    They're hers and she's theirs.

    And she really doesn't like it when people take her stuff.

    Summary

    Derek's been choking on the smoke and ash of his family's murder for years now. It consumes every part of him, influences all that he is. He knows that he'll never be free of it, that nothing will ever grant him the peace he so desperately craves.

    All he wants is to feel safe, to be loved and to love in return, but he knows that's impossible.

    Until, that is, he meets Stiles.

    Through ups and downs, past blood and pain, Stiles slowly gives Derek exactly what he's always desperately wanted and never believed he could have.

    Comfort. Care. A new Pack. And a dark, desperate kind of all consuming love.

    And once Derek has all of that within his grasp?

    Well he'll burn the world to ash to keep it.

    Summary

    He thinks maybe he should be unsettled by the impact she’s had on him.

    Thinks maybe it should chafe.

    That maybe it should remind him of HYDRA and having his choices, his will, ripped away from him.

    It doesn’t.

    She doesn’t.

    It, she, the memory of her, feels like choice.

    Summary

    “Never thought I’d come after another mouthy Terran,” Yondu grins, crooked teeth unabashedly bared and seemingly unconcerned, “but my boy … well he deserves the best. Figured I’d make up for threatenin’ to eat him all those years. Might stop him from being so pissy all the time.”

    “That’s real sweet and all,” Toni cuts in sharply as understanding dawns on her, “but I doubt he’s my type. And it’s not the blue thing either, because that could be hot. It’s more along the lines of the whole I’m not leaving with you thing.”

    “Well see, that’s where you’re wrong,” Yondu smirks and abruptly whistles. Toni’s startled for a split second by the arrow that darts towards her from where it had been sheathed at his waist. The fin on his head glows a threatening red.
