Wrong Delivery by dragongirlG, KOranges
Between fending off his crippling loneliness, working for a rumored former intelligence agent, and adjusting to a mid-semester housing change, Steve Rogers has his work cut out for him getting through daily life at Triskelion University. When a pizza meant for a mysterious "James" arrives on his doorstep, Steve goes on a mission to deliver it to its rightful owner. After a few false starts, Steve forms a tentative friendship with James "Bucky" Barnes, a reticent engineering student who has recently returned to TU after a private leave of absence.

Bucky and Steve’s relationship soon progresses into an adorable romance that has their friends simultaneously rolling their eyes and cheering for them on the sidelines. When unexpected revelations threaten to destroy the happiness they've built, Bucky and Steve must decide whether to let their past mistakes define their relationship or whether to forge a brave new path together with trust, love, and acceptance.

Five Things I Wish I’d Known Before My Chronic Illness - The New York Times
“In trauma therapy we call this ‘integration,’ the task of integrating a new reality into one’s life and worldview,” Mr. Lundquist said. “This emotional work can look a lot like grief therapy for a passing loved one.” Try to be patient as you get to know the new version of yourself.

How to Support People with Invisible Illnesses - NWPC
CHALLENGES OF LIVING WITH AN INVISIBLE ILLNESS

In addition to the various symptoms of a chronic and invisible illness, people suffering from these illnesses can also experience frustration, guilt, exhaustion and embarrassment.

For those diagnosed with an illness at a young age, the common stereotype that younger populations are supposed to be healthy makes it especially difficult. For those diagnosed later in life, many feel guilty they are unable to more actively participate in the lives of their families and be active with their children and grandchildren.

Invisible illnesses impact people in all aspects of their lives, personally and professionally. They can severely impact ability to routinely work and may lead to social isolation and depression.

You're the One That I Want by PR Zed (przed)
"You don't have to worry about not having good health insurance," Bucky says. "I'll pay. Whatever your treatments cost, I'll pay it." He'd pay anything to save Steve.

"I can't let you do that," Steve says. "I can't let you drain your savings when we both know I'm going to die eventually anyway."

"Don't say that," Bucky says. This is a problem. He can solve problems. He solves problems at work all day. That's what he does.

And then it comes to him. The wonderful, horrible solution to this catastrophe.

"Let's get married," Bucky blurts out.

When Steve's heart starts failing, Bucky's gold standard Stark Industries health insurance gets Steve the treatment he needs. But Bucky finds that when you're secretly in love with your (maybe dying) best friend, things get a lot complicated, fast.

Castaway
"The Devil is real. A sentence Chloe Decker never believed until Lucifer Morningstar burned out her skepticism with his hellfire eyes. It's a "Hell" of a reality shift, but Chloe realizes she may not have time for gradual acceptance when she discovers that one of the bodies in her most recent murder investigation isn't human. Worse still, the next target might be Lucifer. A story that begs the question: who prays for Satan?" (131,014 words)
