    Summary

    “Whatever do you mean?” I asked, shifting uneasily. 

    “I’ve a strong feeling you and he understand intimacy very differently,” he explained cautiously, clearly toeing around some truth he felt was not his to share. “He’s not going to like it if you start looking at him like he were some handsome Countess or blushing stable-boy, you understand?” 

    “Perfectly,” I assured Eskel. 

    I did not. 

    Or, Dandleion gets a lesson in love. It takes a while.

    Summary

    Being sent to the Rito in the dead of winter is a punishment. Link is ostensibly relieving the longtime Hylian military attaché, so this could be construed a promotion—but for the timing.

    Another birthday has come and gone, and still he has not presented. And even though everyone expects him to be appointed the Princess’s knight, one thing is for sure—the King will never select anyone but an alpha. And he certainly won’t trust his only child with someone who hasn’t even presented yet. Maybe it would be different if Link had the sword that seals the darkness, but he doesn’t.

    Summary

    Fate has it out for Clint Barton.

    After a few too many heartbreaks, he's given up looking for his Soulmate; who needs happily ever after anyway? He’s perfectly content with his dog, his job, guarding eccentric billionaires, and drinking Natasha’s contraband vodka. Just ask anyone.

    So he doesn’t think anything about inviting a random sex worker home for coffee to get him out of the cold - no need for any special company, thanks - because that’s just the decent thing to do. But when he keeps meeting Bucky again and again, it’s not fate he’s gotta worry about, it’s his heart.

     

    Bucky’s just living his life. He’s got work he doesn’t hate, a degree program he loves, and and a side project out to prove Green Arrow's archery antics aren't possible outside the comics. He’ll meet his Soulmate when the time is right, but for now he’s content to wait.

    But then his roommate pulls a Breaking Bad, leaving him caught up in an NYPD investigation, out of his regular work, and scrambling for a place to stay where his demon-cat won’t get them both evicted. Before he knows it, Clint is turning his whole life turned upside down, and Bucky thinks fate shouldn’t be tempting him.

    Summary

    Amos hauls dirt and moves water hoses. He brings Prax new slides and equipment from the storage compartment. And, after Prax shows him how, he pulls a bunch of plants from their pots, digs his big fingers up into tangled roots to free them. Root-bound, Prax calls it, when a plant confined to a small space doesn't have any more room to grow.

    Summary

    "It was a person. Which was weird and scary but also intriguing and asked him why why why like a three year old who'd just learned the word. The fog cleared a little more and made the mystery even more intriguing because, hi, yes, glacier man had a metal arm. "Well," he muttered at that because it wasn't just some vague approximation of a human limb like most prosthetics. He hardly believed it was real metal at first, maybe some kind of weird paint job, but no. The symmetry with the right arm was exact, and a thousand more questions popped into his head-

    "Well what?" Pepper asked a few steps back and Tony froze. Well, 'froze' seemed like such a strong word as he leaned over a man literally encased in ice but language was a funny thing."

    Or: Due to the most bizarre clerical error ever, Tony Stark ends up buying the Winter Soldier. Of course he doesn't ask for a refund on something so interesting as a metal-armed cyborg, especially not when it starts spouting off about enforcing the will of the supposedly long-dead supernazis his dad helped defeat in WWII. Things only get more complicated when Captain America is thawed out but Tony's always been good with complicated.
