    Summary

    Bucky's dog tags were folded in the crease of the paper he'd torn from his journal, reading: "Steve, here. You have them, if you want them. You have me, if you want me. I’ve never tried loving a man before but for you I’ve run headfirst into wars and Death’s wide, gaping jaws, so this is easy in comparison. This is like breathing."

     


    It was so dark when Bucky handed him the note, the fire just burning out, and he glanced back only once to see Steve watching him as he walked away.

    Summary

    What if Geralt had kidnapped Ciri when she was four months old, and accidentally involved Jaskier in the whole baby-rearing thing?

    Or also: the one Geralt and Jaskier spend the winter watching baby Ciri grow, travel half the Continent and fail to part from each other.

    Geralt was a wonder to watch. He made faces at her so she could try and mimic him, he guided her little hands over the textured fabrics of Jaskier’s fancy outfits he’d graciously lent them just for this very exercise, and the more he made Ciri laugh, the softer his smiles became. Jaskier was completely addicted to the way his whole face lit up in wonder when she did something new or unexpected.

    Summary

    Everyone knew how it worked. One day, when you were old enough, when you'd experienced enough, the first words your soulmate would speak to you appeared somewhere on your body. A soulmark, they called it.

    Boba assumed he didn't have a soulmark. A quirk of fate, he'd reasoned. The result of being his father's clone. It didn't bother him, not really. He'd made a life for himself as Boba Fett, not as Jango Fett's son.

    Din Djarin has lived too many places to call anywhere home. He had his people, sure. He was their hunter, their beroya. He provided for them, loved them, even. He didn't have a soulmark, but he was okay with that. No soulmark meant no soulmate, and no soulmate meant no conflicting pulls of two very different duties.

    Sometimes, though, destiny simply shows up late.
