    Summary

    Men are, by and large, a waste of Peggy’s time. Oh, certainly, there are a few who aren’t entirely useless, and some of them aren’t bad to look at. But she’s never been very interested in what they have to offer. She has more important things to do, like win the war.

    That’s why it’s so frustrating that she can’t stop thinking about Steve. She should have better control over herself.

    Steve is the only man who has ever caused her such trouble.

    That is, until James Buchanan Barnes opens his mouth.

    Summary

    Yennefer pouted, and he could tell it was an act. “You’re no kind of fun,” she said.
    He sighed deeply, rolling his head on his neck to stretch the tension out of his shoulders. There was no point being afraid. There was nothing he could do to make her less dangerous. She wasn’t going to go away and let him sleep-- or if she did, she’d be back at any time she felt like.
    So he might as well uphold his own reputation. Meet death sitting down, offer it wine, have a pleasant conversation. That sort of thing.
    “Darling,” he said, “I am all kinds of fun.”

    Summary

    Pepper doesn’t often regret the improbable circumstances and choices that brought her, Tony, and Jim to the SGC and then to Atlantis. After all, being an intergalactic explorer is way cooler than being the right hand woman of Stark Industries’ heir Tony Stark. But when strangers show up during her Gate team’s milk run of a trading mission, she’s got a bad feeling she knows better than to ignore.

    Which is how Pepper’s Gate team ends up picking up a stray in the form of a metal-armed runner with a mysterious past and learning about a dangerous new sect of Wraith worshippers called Hydrans. But the Atlanteans aren’t the only ones interested in the Hydrans: there are stories spreading throughout the Pegasus Galaxy about the Nomad and the Widows, three maybe-heroes who have set their sights on the Hydrans and the Wraith.

    Meanwhile, Tony’s trying to figure out if there’s something more to Atlantis’s helpful new hospitality-oriented subroutines, and Master Sergeant Sam Wilson is trying to have just one offworld mission where shit doesn’t get weird.

    "It came suddenly, like the wind pushing aside clouds to reveal the bright gold of the sun before covering it up again, but as they descended the tower together, it came all the same, just as it had when she’d watched Steve square his jaw and demand to train with the militia: understanding, and the flaring first spark of what she knew would become a much bigger flame. She’d found the truth of Bucky, just as she had with Steve during his militia training, and the truth of Bucky was both that man up in the watchtower who could keep such patient watch and protect his people with calm certainty, and this man here, who’d asked for the comfort of holding her hand."

    He said that he was lucky. To have had us as friends. And that he hoped - that he knew when he was wasn't here, we’d - let ourselves be lucky, too. That we’d be friends. That we’d watch out for each other the way we did for him.” Bucky ducks his head, hair falling in his eyes. “He said, uh. You run slow and I can’t fly, and we’re both pretty decent shots, so together, we stand half a chance. But. Only together.”
