    Summary

    It is the year 2028. In a Europe that is slowly fragmenting back into the small countries, kingdoms and city-states of centuries ago, Prince Escalus has ruled the city-state of Verona with a velvet-gloved iron fist for over twenty years.

    But Verona is a city that is rarely at peace for long, and an old feud is about to flare up into new violence. Five young people will determine the fate of two warring Houses and their grasp for power.

    Can Tybalt Capulet and Mercutio Escalus manage to hold together the tenuous peace in Verona and forge a new life for all five young people - or will the city be ripped apart and their lives with it?

    Summary

    Tony swept his gaze over the jacket. It was well used, heavily worn down, but not in a bad way. The fabric felt softened over years of use, and the slight discolorations seemed to suit it. Tony could see the marks left over from the previous owners. A small patch, sewn perfectly in neat little stiches on the inside breast pocket screamed of Steve’s steady hands, while the fraying on tails remained as evidence of Bucky’s impatient tugging.

    Or, Steve and Bucky gift Tony with their jacket that survived from the 1940's.

    Turns out that wasn't the only thing that survived.

    Summary

    The Ancients' genes didn't just confer the power to activate their technology. For ten percent of Earth's population, like John Sheppard, the ATA gene also gave them Gifts: special abilities that made them admired, envied, and feared.

    Sheppard was a Charmer, one of the feared ones, whose particular Gift let him create faith whenever he needed to be trusted or believed. But Sheppard didn't trust himself not to destroy what he loved most. And somewhere along the line, amid the terror and chaos of the Expedition's first year in the Pegasus Galaxy, what Sheppard loved most had become Rodney McKay.

    McKay didn't trust anyone. As soon as you started trusting people, you started counting on them, depending on them, and that was when you became vulnerable. And vulnerable things didn't survive. So just when, exactly, had he started trusting Sheppard?

    And what was going to happen, now that he did?
