    Summary

    “Do you mind if I work a little, Bucky?” He says Bucky’s name as often as Bucky says Steve’s, like maybe he likes the feel of it, the music of it—like maybe it’s at the top of his list, too. He’s using strong-looking hands to pick up the satchel he’d been carrying when he came over, lifting it up and sitting it on his lap. “I’m an artist, and I’ve got a couple commissions I hafta finish up here soon.”

    Artist. Of course he is.

    “I don’t mind,” Bucky says. He doesn’t. He likes the idea of sitting across from Steve while he works, sipping his coffee, finishing the book he was reading, and maybe looking up and meeting Steve’s eyes every now and again.

    His shock-blue eyes. His eyes framed with golden lashes, like seagrass.

    The Winter Soldier, and a man made of spun-strong gold.

    Artist Steve Rogers moves in next to the Winter Soldier, who has been missing from the news for two years. Steve wants to paint him more than anything.

    Summary

    And perhaps it is the greater grief, after all, to be left on earth when another is gone.

     

    Or, the one where Steve and Bucky are immortal and used to be known as Achilles and Patroclus.

    Summary

    It’s the gunman, the shooter from Steve’s apartment, striding into the open. Black leather and Kevlar and the muzzle across his jaw and that fucking metal arm. And his song is broken, a nightmare—like his soul has been carved out, like they crammed the vessel of his body full of rusty razor blades and landmines, and every time he moves he’s cutting himself deeper.

     

    Steve Rogers is—look, he’s fine. He’s busy: neck-deep in spies, pulling the long con where he pretends to be Captain America, SHIELD agent, and not a pack of wolves and six kinds of trauma piled up inside a trench coat. Because the end of the world is coming and he needs allies; this tiny blue-green planet needs a shield, only—

    Only it turns out he’s not the only one playing the long game inside SHIELD. Hydra are not as dead as the history books would have you believe.

    And neither is Bucky Barnes.

    A wolf age, a wind age. Shields are sundered.

    Summary

    Alec Lightwood’s life in his small village is simple, his purpose straightforward: he spends his days in the nearby forest hunting for wild game, and his nights at home caring for his mother and siblings.

    He does not remain in the forest after dark.

    Then, Alec’s brother Jace is arrested. When Jace is sentenced to indentured servitude in the long-abandoned castle at the center of the forest, Alec has no choice but to present himself to serve in his brother's stead—Jace has a new mate, who would suffer greatly in his absence. Their whole family would.

    No one would miss Alec.

    At his father’s behest, Alec takes his brother’s place and, with it, a new purpose: root out the secrets hidden within the dark, crumbling castle in the woods, and use them to bring its mysterious owner, Magnus Bane, to ruin.
