    Summary

    Ronan looked up at the next person who stepped up to speak with him. For a moment he couldn’t find words. The boy bowed low to Ronan, his eyes fixed up at him. Ronan held his gaze for what felt like a lifetime.

    Finally he straightened, and moved to walk away, probably assuming Ronan had no prolonged interest. In a quick moment of impulsiveness Ronan grabbed his hand.

    Ronan stared into his breathtaking eyes, lifting the boy's hand to his mouth to kiss the back of it. He was struck for a moment by his actions, and the sheer beauty of the boy's hand. His fine bones, with smooth tan skin stretched over them. Each finger was long and elegant, as beautiful as many of the court musicians’. For a moment Ronan thought he might be one of them, but he was sure he would have noticed him sooner.

    His lips lingered longer than necessary but he couldn’t help it. He dropped the boy’s hand reluctantly. The boy gave him a soft smile and stepped away, back into the crowd.

    Summary

    Steve takes in Bucky's betrayed look and Sam's confusion, follows Sam's gaze to the pile of mangled fruit in the trash can. Sudden comprehension fills his face.

    "Oh," he says. "Bucky found out about bananas."

     

    In which an American icon is mourned. But probably not the one you're thinking of.

    Summary

    Stars, Simon loved him. Hugh and his golden hair and golden ideas and passionate speeches to an audience of one. It was impossible not to be in love with when he was the way he was. The person he was.

    Defiantly good in a world that would have let him be bad so easily.

    Good. Brave.

    Impulsive, but the best person Simon knew.

    Currently frowning, eyes drifting closed. Drooling a little bit.

    A golden boy in an iron world.

    If only Simon could put any of that into words.

    Summary

    It had started in a basement.

    Simon’s basement, to be precise. Simon’s basement where he and Hugh had spent countless hours before Ace Anarchy took over hanging out for fun, countless more, in the beginning, hiding from the gangs that would want to exploit their powers, and countless more planning and planning on how to make the world a better place.

    Summary

    Max still smiled when he saw Simon coming across the bridge, and called him Pops, and that usually felt like almost enough. Not quite, but almost.

    But sometimes it just wasn’t. When Max was sick, and Hugh could sit and read to him until he fell asleep while Simon was stuck worrying alone at home, or when Max was hurt and all Simon could do was call somebody else to help him, or when Max looked so lonely and sad and Simon couldn’t give him a hug or kiss his forehead.
