    Summary

    Maria Elena Popescu’s apartment building might be a faceless grey dump, but it’s her faceless grey dump, and she’s proud of it. It’s small – three floors, and three very poky flats to a floor, except for the bottom floor that was the entrance hall and her own quarters – but that just meant she knew everybody who lived here, and liked them. Nobody was allowed to come in here and make it worse, or disreputable, not even tall dark and good-looking foreigners who reacted with an appropriate amount of fear when Maria eyeballed them.

    Summary

    Four-and-a-half years ago, Keith lost the friend he was in love with, searched for any trace of Shiro, and found nothing. Resigned to never seeing him again, Keith honored a request that Shiro sent him: he tried to move on. He took a scholarship package and moved to Massachusetts. He tried to make himself a new life.

    Now, Keith’s a broke, autistic history student at Kaltenecker University. He has trauma he doesn’t acknowledge, a depressive downswing that he’s ignoring, his Mom’s old knife, and a support network of about two people (his ex-girlfriend, Allura, and Kolivan, his academic advisor). His life’s a mess and his apartment’s a shit-hole, but at least they’re his.

    Then, Keith yells at the punk band keeping him awake at four in the morning and the last thing that he expected drops into his life. Namely: Shiro, with long hair and new scars, but clean, sober, and away from his abusive ex. Worse, Shiro seems happy to have found Keith again.

    This joy wouldn’t be bad if it made sense, but to Keith, it absolutely doesn’t. Shiro shouldn’t want Keith back in his life after what happened between them in Chicago, and there is definitely no way that Shiro ever loved Keith back — right?

    Summary

    You know the story: a guy moves to a new city to start a new job. A guy meets a guy. A guy falls in love with a guy.

    In this case, the guy is one Takashi Shirogane, scarred inside and out but with a bigger heart than most and the other guy is Keith Kogane, a little scarred on the inside and more friendless than he would like. Neither was looking for love: Shiro mostly because he thought he didn't need it and Keith mostly because he thought he already had it.

    But love can't be ordered around. It comes when it wants to come.

    Summary

    When a National Geographic photographer loses his arm in lava, and remains cryptic about the circumstances, the reporter in Steve becomes rather interested. Trying to get the scoop, however, turns out to be a bit harder than he'd imagined. Actually, a lot of things that happen with this so-called James "Bucky" Barnes is not at all what he'd imagined.

    Summary

    Captain America wakes up from the ice in 2013. The Winter Soldier wakes up in 2009, or rather defects from HYDRA, for a value of defect that’s closer to decimate. He ends up working for SHIELD. In April 2014, he’s assigned to Captain America’s mission as a sniper.

    Steve’s just trying to get some kind of life together. Bucky is too, or at least he was until tall, blond and Captain shows up and starts just - being there, all the time. It’s terrible. It’s the worst. He has to do something about it.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers is doing great. He survived a tough childhood filled with illness and childhood asthma to become the owner of a lucrative "box" in Brooklyn, New York, alongside his best friend, Sam Wilson. He also works as a freelance artist and is slowly finding success in that side of his work. Overall, life is pretty awesome.

    And then he gets dragged to a yoga class, and a man with a full tattoo sleeve and a devastating smile just might upend Steve's great, normal life.

    Or - the yoga and Crossfit AU literally nobody asked for.

    Summary

    A found family, hurt/comfort story:

    Six months after The Snap, those who disappeared suddenly reappear, confused, sick, and lost far from home. Amongst the returned is Peter Parker. Post-snap, Peter has come back as a feral alpha, frightened, touch-starved, and quickly going into his first rut. Aunt May is still missing so Tony steps in to be Peter's in loco parentis. Concerned for Peter's safety and feeling guilty over not being able to save him the first time around, Tony is determined to do whatever it takes to return this silent, traumatized boy back to the bright, energetic teenager he once was. However, Tony doesn't realize that in order to be the support Peter needs, Peter's traumas aren't the only ones they'll have to deal with.

    Note: Although ABO sexuality will be discussed and dealt with, this is a hurt/comfort fic, not intended to be smutty. Also, there will be no sexual contact between Peter and any adults.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes has finally come home.

    A year and a half after the events on the helicarriers, desperate for a safe haven and a chance to finally rest, Bucky takes Steve at his word and returns to the dilapidated row house in Brooklyn where he and Steve once lived.

    Room by room, he slowly starts to fix up the house as he works on his own recovery, while Steve starts to circle closer and closer. It's not easy; it was never going to be easy, and as Steve and Bucky draw even closer to each other in their dance, there are new steps to learn and old wounds to heal.

    But nothing has ever been able to stop these two boys from Brooklyn, and as they start to share food, trips to Home Depot, late night runs and eventually laughter, it turns out that Bucky isn't the only one who needs help healing.

    That's only if Steve can get Bucky to believe in himself and the life they have started to build together, and convince Bucky to stay.

    Summary

    In 2018, Steve, Sam, and Bucky embark on a mission to explore a Hydra-owned warehouse when a kid with mutant powers sends Steve 18 years into the future. After figuring out where (and when) he is, Steve tracks Bucky down in 2036 to find he's become a successful business owner and an impassioned advocate for mutant rights. Steve's just as in love with Bucky as he was when he left, but for Bucky it's been a long 18 years. It's hard to accept when Bucky keeps him at arm's length... but Steve's never met a challenge that he didn't take.

    As he gets used to life in 2036 and the flaws in Bucky's idyllic life expose themselves, Steve also has to manage a suspiciously ubiquitous security force, a Brotherhood of Mutants, and old competing loyalties among his aged friends. There's a Bucky in 2018 waiting for him to come home, but if he does that, it means leaving this Bucky behind for a third, unforgivable time. How can he choose?

    What's Bucky not saying?

    How can he face losing everything -- again?
