Reflexes
Bucky meets the team and manages to survive the experience, Tony is his usual dysfunctional self, and Steve pouts with deadly force.

//

When Bucky emerges from the lab, feeling wrung out and smug as fuck about it, Steve is sitting on one of the couches in the living room, reading from a tablet. He looks up, and immediately both flushes bright red and gives him the ultimate disappointed face. Normally, Bucky would feel awful about that, but the endorphins are currently cancelling out all of his shame.

“That was quick,” Steve says, sounding slightly strangled.

“We’re men of action,” Bucky says breezily. “What can I say?” Even his new arm feels well-fucked. The future is fantastic.

“Yeah, well,” Steve mutters, going even redder. Bucky despairs of him, but takes pity anyway.

Will to Follow Through
Watching Lydia sink to the filthy concrete floor, cradling Jackson like the dirt and the blood and the slick sweat don't mean anything, like there's nothing that can stop her from sharing those last few breaths with him – it does something to Stiles. Does something to his ribs, maybe, makes them brittle and sharp, curling in a little tighter and pinching his lungs, his heart.

Later he'll feel a little selfish about it; Lydia and Jackson are playing out their Satine and Christian horror story and Gerard's mostly-dead, completely-disgusting body is gone, Peter's apparently risen from the dead and Derek's got this look on his face like he's finally realizing he lost whatever tentative control he had. All Stiles cares about is that whatever fleeting chance he might have thought he had with Lydia has quite literally been given the kiss of death. The stubborn streak that dominates the majority of his personality wants to refuse, but Jackson's not so dead after all, and he's looking at Lydia like she hung the moon and personally arranged the stars around it, and Stiles thinks this might be what the captain of the Titanic felt like when his unsinkable ship was well and truly sunk.

The Last Love Song of Anthony E. Stark
The pressure between his ribs opens like a strongbox. If there is something precious hidden inside, kept away from prying eyes and the dirt and the ice hardening beneath Tony's fingernails, he does not know it. There's an image in his mind that he can't shake out — a nine-pointed flower, black and purple as a bruise. It opens and spreads outwards, balancing on the tip of one finger. He stares at it, and then looks down to find himself holding it. An itch develops behind one eye, and it spreads further, burrowing deep into his head. There's something important, he thinks, and the conviction hits him between the ribs, but he doesn't know what it is. He doesn't know what's important out here, where he's sitting in the snow and the stone, with the pillars of dead warriors watching him with solemn, serene faces.

A man is trudging towards him, forcing a path through the snow. The man is tall and blond, dressed in drab brown. He's handsome in a way that makes Tony ache, but then it makes him afraid, because there's something wrong with this. He can't name what it is, but this is not as it should be. This is an equation with the wrong variable, it's a design with the wrong dimensions.

Tony has a knife in his pocket, flat and cold against his palm when he draws it. "Don't come any closer!" he says as the man approaches. The nine-pointed flower falls from his finger and dissolves like a bloodstain.

"Tony," the man says hoarsely. "We've been looking for you. Come back. Our camp's not far."

Tony brandishes the knife more wildly. "I have no idea what the fuck you're talking about, or who the fuck you are."

The Secret Life of Daydreams, Part 5/5
Eduardo and Christina arrived late in the evening. Christopher, who had secluded himself in the salon with Dustin so they could talk at their leisure, was glad to see them – and gladder still to tell them both that it had all been resolved happily.

“We have reconciled,” he said, hardly able to contain his happiness. “We – it is just that I can be very stubborn.”

“We are well aware,” said Christina, but she smiled in reply, so Christopher thought that it was kindly meant.

“Does that mean you will be returning to Netherfield?” Eduardo asked Dustin.

“I hope so,” Dustin said. He had not released Christopher’s hand, even though Christopher had tried to impress upon him the inappropriateness of the gesture. “If you do not object, I would like to accompany you on your return journey.”

The Secret Life of Daydreams, Part 4/5
The wedding celebrations continued well into the evening, though the guests began to leave after dinner. Eduardo ventured into the dining room to claim food for him and his friends, avoiding Mark’s gaze, and the three of them retreated to bed not long after.

It was, Eduardo admitted, a cowardly response, but he was not ready to deal with the feelings that Mark had aroused in him. Eduardo had agreed, however tacitly, to marry Cameron Winklevoss, and he was determined to make his father happy. Still too, there were his friends to consider. So long as Mark remained friends with Dustin and Parker, Eduardo could not in good conscience unite himself with him. He could never put his own happiness above theirs.

The Secret Life of Daydreams, Part 3/5
Eduardo rose early the day before he left London, intending to finish up his business. However, not more than an hour after he had risen, he received an unexpected caller. He came into the parlour and found Mark standing by the window, the early morning light casting sharp shadows across his face.

“Mark!” Eduardo exclaimed, surprised. “You are awake early.”

“I wanted to be sure to find you at home,” Mark said, a strange look on his face. He was shifting from foot to foot. After a moment, Eduardo realized that he was nervous. “I have a matter of some import to discuss with you.”

Eduardo waited. When Mark showed no signs of beginning, he prompted, “What is it?”

The Secret Life of Daydreams, Part 2/5
When Christopher awoke the second morning of his invalidity, he felt much healthier. He dressed and went to find the kitchen in hopes of securing a cup of tea or a piece of bread. He was quickly found by Dustin, who said, “Christopher! What on earth are you doing out of bed? I cannot imagine that your health has improved that dramatically.”

“I do feel much better,” Christopher protested. “I had hoped for tea.”

“Of course,” said Dustin. “Come, we are having breakfast in our informal dining room. We would be delighted to have you join us.”

Christopher followed him and found Erica and Zuckerberg already eating a small breakfast an east-facing room. Dustin pulled out a chair for Christopher, then sat down beside him.

“Your friends are most charming,” Dustin told Christopher. “We had the pleasure of enjoying their company for dinner last night.”

The Secret Life of Daydreams, Part 1/5
The news of Netherfield Park’s newest inhabitant came down to Christopher at a most inopportune time. He had been working on his history of Meryton for nearly a year, and he was nearly finished. Christopher had only the history of Netherfield to complete before he could send his work to London. He had intended on speaking to Netherfield’s caretaker, who Christopher knew would be most accommodating in allowing Christopher to use the library.

Eduardo Saverin, Christopher’s closest friend, arrived with the news just before noon. “Have you heard?” he asked eagerly. “Netherfield is to be let at last!”

All The Stars And Bleeding Hearts
Notting Hill AU. In which Jesse runs a bookstore, Andrew is a famous film star and they’re both faily dorks in love.

//

Jesse is elbow deep in first editions and rarities, trying not to let his supplier see quite how badly he wants to sweep them all up into his arms and buy all of them, when his cell phone buzzes on the table.

“Sorry,” Jesse says, only lifting one hand off the cover of the first American edition of the Hound of the Baskervilles, the pages papery and splintering at the edges and the warm, reassuring smell of old book rising up to surround him.

Diptych
Adam Lambert may not have stolen the Matheron Diptych, but he's about to sell it on the black market for a nice profit. He's not going to let an FBI investigation get in his way...if he can just shake the agent who's shadowing his every move.

Special Agent Kris Allen has been watching Adam for weeks. But is Kris planning to arrest the glamorous art fence and retrieve the diptych? Or does he want more from Adam than just stolen merchandise?

When Kris saves Adam’s life, the line blurs between Fed and criminal. But while Kris melts at Adam's touch, someone far more dangerous is searching for the diptych….

Off With Your Head (We Started Nothing), Part 5/5
When Kris wakes up again he's in a bed, oxygen mask still in place, something cool and heavenly over his eyes. He sinks down into the sheets gratefully, letting his mind drift back to coherence slowly, floating on the feeling of being rested and relatively pain-free.

He brings one hand to his face, pulling the damp cloth away, blinking experimentally, relieved as his eyes cooperate, vision clear, the irritation gone. The room is dim, the only light coming from his right, and he turns his head and sees Adam, curled up in a huge armchair, a file open on his lap, brow furrowed and set.

They're at a wedding, ironically, when Kris finally works up the courage to confront it. Sort of.

"Kinda like our wedding, huh," he says, leaning back against Adam's shoulder, tracing the lines of stringed lights along the sides of the tent with his eyes. "Only without the distrust and mutual resentment."

The funeral is a circus. Practically every cop in the state is there, keeping the flooding crowd from overwhelming the church.

Kris sticks to Adam like glue, forcing himself not to fidget under the harsh glare of the cameras, feeling the tension radiating from Adam's body. As the service starts, he reaches out and grabs Kris's hand, squeezing it so tightly it hurts, but Kris keeps silent, gritting his teeth and letting Adam clutch onto him.

Kris is hastened back to his room by the same two unfamiliar men. Waiting for him there is a pale, shaking Allison and, sitting with his arm around her shoulders, Cassidy.

"Kris," Cassidy starts, rising, and Kris cuts him off with a left hook.

"You bastard," Kris says, hearing a gasp from Allison's direction. Behind him, the unfamiliar guards grab his forearms, pulling him backwards.

Dreaming Out Loud
Listening to his dad play when he thinks Dylan is asleep makes Dylan kind of sad and worried. His dad is good, that’s what everyone says. But no one ever gets discovered in Arkansas. Alfie says even Baltimore is better if you want to be famous, but he still thinks that city kind of stinks, so he doesn’t recommend it to Dylan. He says they need to move to Los Angeles. That’s where all the famous people live. And Alfie has an Aunt Madeleine there, and he can totally come and visit sometimes.

Dylan doesn’t have his own computer, but his dad lets him use the one in the living room. He even has his own account there, with his very own user picture (Batman) and password (robinsux). So he already looked Los Angeles up, and he’s pretty sure Alfie is right about this. Because Los Angeles is where Adam Lambert lives, and if his dad is ever going to make an album and give concerts and stuff, Adam Lambert is the guy to help.

Sing Without A Song, Epilogue - My World is Filled With So Many Things
Adam reached over and put his hand on Kris's bouncing leg, his thumb rubbing soothing circles on his knee.

"Shhh," he said "Don't be so nervous. It'll be OK."

Kris turned toward Adam, taking a break from staring at the lights of Los Angeles as they sped past him, and gave him a weak smile.

"I'm fine," he said. His leg twitched under Adam's hand, like it wanted to start bouncing again but suddenly remembered itself. "Really."

Adam unbuckled his seatbelt and slid over to sit next to Kris, slipping an arm behind him and around his waist. "Just hold on to me. You'll hardly have to say anything, just smile and don't touch your face. Any picture of you touching your face will look like you're picking your nose."

Sing Without A Song, Part 8/8 - If You Love It
Kris grabbed his phone as he rolled out of bed, his habit of checking his messages the moment he was conscious persisting despite his confusion about what time it was and what was happening. He was bleary as he padded down the hallway in his boxers, his body responding to the knocking on the door before his mind had even sorted out what it was. The light coming in through the windows seemed to indicate that it was mid-morning, which meant he should be at work, and that just added to his general confusion.

Oh, right. He abruptly remembered talking to Adam and then calling in sick; rolling around in bed all night wondering what was going to happen. He stopped dead in the middle of the living room, forgetting why he was awake in the first place and looking down at his phone to see if any more clues had come in since he'd been sleeping.

There were no calls or messages on his phone. Kris frowned, then looked up at the door as another round of pounding started.

Sing Without A Song, Part 7/8 - It Is Delicate and Lovely
On the second day, Kris considered sending a text. He went back and forth on it, sometimes thinking it couldn't hurt just to say hi, other times wondering if a little flirtation wouldn't be the better way to go. Most of the time, though, he just fought it.

It hadn't been that long. He knew he was just being extra freaked about it because he didn't know how long it would last. Like, if Adam had to go somewhere and be out of contact for a week, Kris could deal with that. It's not like he'd be pining after him and gazing longingly at his phone after two days, because he could live just fine without Adam.

But if that were the case he'd have an end point, you know, something to look forward to. He didn't really have that right now, and it was making him feel like a caged animal. He just couldn't stop thinking about Adam for even a minute; Kris's mind ran a constant stream of things he wanted to say to him.
