    Summary

    Bucky laughs and grins and feels giddiness spread through him, the loose leaves by the ground rising up in response to his magic. His wolf sees it and growls and runs to the leaves, leaping in the air, trying to catch them.

    Bucky laughs until he’s breathless, his magic loose and bright and spinning through the woods.

    “Come on,” Bucky calls out to his wolf, a grin still playing at his lips. “Let me show you the forest.”

    Summary

    Sure, Bucky was Shield’s top musician. He spent hours upon hours in front of the piano, playing for others, playing for himself, composing, singing, pouring his heart and soul into the keys day in and day out. It was a position he’d lost temporarily, after the accident. A position he’d fought for again as soon as his physiotherapist had agreed to let him play again. A position he was proud of, one that was pretty much his dream job.

    But Shield wasn’t for musicians. Shield was a ballet company, and Steve? Steve was one of their principal dancers.

    So Bucky could watch all he liked, when Steve stretched and his tights pulled thin across his ass, or he flexed and every muscle stood out in high relief. But he wasn’t going to get anywhere, because Steve was so far out of Bucky’s league that it was almost funny.

    Summary

    It's not a mark or a thread that distinguishes a soulmate; instead, it's a physical sensation, a bio-resonant connection—a rhythm to your breath, a cadence in your blood, the echo of an extra pulse inside your chest that proves your heart's not quite beating by itself, anymore; that it was always waiting for a matching set of notes to make a melody, and now it's singing, now it's soaring. Now you're whole.

    But when what you've got is a pair of tricky lungs, faulty blood, and a bum ticker, it doesn't matter how strong your soul is: the harmony will barely rise above a whisper, the resonance will almost always strike too weak. So it's no one's fault, really, if a person misses the fact that his soulmate's standing right in front of him.

    It's no one's fault if it takes the better part of a century to finally see.

    Summary

    ‘I get flashes,’ Donna said, stirring her coffee. ‘Pictures, mostly. Of these – impossible things. Aliens in London. Shadows that move. A giant wasp, of all things. And there’s someone I need to find. A man, I think. I don’t remember what he looks like.’ She prodded at her pie morosely. ‘What about you?’

    ‘Fragments,’ he said. He had refused her offer of food or drink and was sitting opposite her in the booth of the little café outside the museum, staring a little blankly, hood pushed back to reveal unkempt dark hair that fell to his shoulders and bright blue eyes, ringed by shadow. ‘Like when you know a word’s just on the tip of your tongue but you can’t quite find it.’

    Bucky needs a friend. So does Donna. This is going to end well.
