    Summary

    Steve Rogers had survived more than he cared to remember.

    Polio. Scarlet Fever. Pneumonia. A bum heart.

    Basic training. Hydra. Nazis. Chorus Girls. World War II.

    A plane crash. Kind of.

    An alien invasion.

    It seemed, however, that the thing that would finally kill Steve Rogers would be as mundane as it was ridiculous.

    “Your poll numbers are way down, and we need to get them back up.”

    Poll numbers.

    Because, apparently in 2013, public opinion about Steve Rogers and his performance as Captain America mattered more than his actual performance as Captain America.

    Last week, Steve and Natasha had taken out a terrorist cell with plans to blow up the Eiffel Tower, and the only casualty had been the broken arm of one bad guy because he tried to cop a feel and Natasha hadn’t been in the mood to watch Steve get his pec squeezed.

    But this week?

    This week, his poll numbers were way down.

    The emotion in that sex scene is just *chef's kiss* and the blocking of it was just so real and visual and wvwrything I've ever wanted

    Summary

    One night near the end of first semester 1L finals, just a few weeks before the two-year anniversary of their first kiss, Alex finds himself looking up from his desk with its messy piles of color-coded notes and tabbed textbooks to see Henry asleep on the couch, clearly having dozed off waiting for him to come to bed, and unbidden he thinks, God, I’m going to marry this man.

    It startles him, the spike of adrenaline that floods through him waking him up and bringing the parts of his brain turning over concepts like proximate cause and strict liability to a standstill as he stares at Henry.

     

    I want to marry this man.

    Summary

    Henry is fourteen the first time he kisses a boy. He’s twenty-three the first time he’s able to do so openly, to make choices about himself and his life that are really, truly his.

    Summary

    Sometimes, Alex gets stuck in his own head. And for twenty-two years he doesn’t think there’s anything to be done other than to just go with it, ride out the frenetic energy until he’s fixed whatever needs fixing, or until the situation is over, whichever comes first. If he can just control everything, it’s fine. He likes being in control, he’s good at it, he’s fine. It’s just how things have always been.

    Until Henry.
