    Summary

    “Jesus Christ, I forgot Parrish was living with the Snake,” Blue interjects.
    “Snake?” Adam asks.
    “Yes, Snake. Obviously.”
    “Jane, don’t be mean,” Gansey scolds.
    “I’m not being mean, it’s his nickname. He calls me Maggot, I call him Snake. They’re our terms of endearment.”
    “Those are some very unorthodox terms of endearment,” Adam points out.
    “You’ve only known him for a day,” Blue says. “After a month you can let me know whether or not you agree with the nickname.”
    ***
    Adam is starting Harvard Medical School and finds himself with a new roommate with a chip on his shoulder. What he doesn't realize is that they both have more in common than they know, including dark pasts that have not quite let them go. The only thing that may save them from themselves is each other.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is a rising Hollywood star with a tragic past and a reputation for driving his bodyguards away. Steve Rogers is a veteran with the same tragic past and the need to get back out in the world. The two of them have been estranged since they were teenagers, so when Steve joins SHIELD as a bodyguard, he is less than thrilled when he finds out that Bucky is his first assignment. But how bad can it be? They're both professional adults, right?

    Wrong.

    Summary

    “I heard rumour that William Fly is swinging from a gibbet in Boston harbour. They say the age of piracy is ending,” Steve utters softly, rubbing the tip of his thumb across his lower lip.
    Sam glances at him. “You got plans to retire, Cap? Find a nice little beach in the Indies and a good supply of rum? Couple of pretty girls in grass skirts to dance for you.”
    “Sam,” Steve mumbles, covering his face with his hand.
    “I’m sorry, a couple of pretty boys?” Sam grins wickedly.
    “Sam!” Steve looks scandalised, which gets him nothing but laughter from his Quartermaster. “You’re fired. Go throw yourself overboard this instant.”
