The Gift of Care - ali_aliska
Freshly back to the States, James Barnes has a lot to learn about his new world, so he watches and learns and finds himself slowly falling for one Tony Stark, who always appears miserable when he has to spend time at the Compound with his former teammates, but who still takes the time to treat James with kindness.

James sets out on a mission to take care of Tony, make Tony’s life easier in whatever small ways he can. An unfortunate misunderstanding nearly ruins that, but in the end, James still reaps the rewards of his secret good deeds.

Senbazuru. Thousand Cranes.

An ancient Japanese legend that promises anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by the gods. Some stories believe you are granted happiness and eternal good luck, instead of just one wish, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury.

Bucky’s not big on believing in any legends, not after all that has happened. He just wants to create something for a change, not destroy.

He needs to prove himself that he can be trusted to handle something delicate. He doesn’t need a promise of a wish come true. He just,- needs to do this for himself.

He doesn’t need noticing how sad, tired Stark looks. Doesn’t need to want to do something for the man, when he can barely do anything for himself.
Tony simply goes through days and motions. He deals with the Avengers, with R&;D, with the rewritten Accords. All of it, it’s nothing new really. He just wants to get things done.

What’s new is seeing Barnes hunched over the coffee table, one step away from ripping a glossy magazine apart in the middle of the night.

And why the hell Barnes keeps looking at him during the days after like he’s a puzzle to be solved?

hold on, darling (now your mess is mine) - Zayz
"Something had had to give between them-- and so he did. He gave. For her.
It was an unrivaled moment of beauty.
And now it was her turn."


The tornado does change everything, but in truth, neither Amy nor Jonah has been the same since he wandered into her life two years ago. In the wake of her divorce, she keeps him at a distance; he learns how to stay. It takes awhile, but they figure it out.

He could focus on the things that were still real and easy to pull together—his family, the other survivors, the ironic place they found to call home, and the cars they built for safety and distraction.

Like A Lighthouse - Black_Calliope
"If I was blindfolded/ and my memory was erased/ If every sign pointed to another place/ I'd still find you/ I will still find you."

When your reality doesn't match your heart's desires, when everything you have is perfect and bright but still not right, well, then maybe you have to start fighting and find your way back home.

To Be A Good Person - WhoNatural
Wherein Derek and Beacon Hills' newest deputy have a history. "I wanna set Derek up with someone," Stiles announces, and Scott’s character gets blown up by a rocket launcher. He pauses the game and turns to look at Stiles like he’s truly crazy - like out of everything that’s happened over the last six months, this is the weirdest thing he’s ever said. Isaac looks up from Melissa’s magazine and frowns. "What?"

“Your heart’s beating fast,” Derek said conversationally, the bastard. “You’re an asshole.” “You were going to attack an Alpha werewolf with a lacrosse stick.” “It was to give me a chance to run.” “How exactly?” Derek asked. “Show me.”

“We could…we could be something, couldn’t we?” Stiles murmurs, eyes slipping shut. Derek looks at the IV line in his arm, the bandages covering his chest, his leg. His hand, pale against the hospital sheets, palm up. Derek waits until he’s sure Stiles is asleep before he responds. It takes Stiles eight years to ask the question again. It's okay. Derek can wait.

It Starts When You're Around - strobelighted
"Earth to Derek. You okay, man?" Derek's eyes are drawn back to the guy in front of him, who's starting to look more worried now. "I --" he starts, then swallows against the dryness. "Who are you?"

-- or, Derek gets amnesia.

"You're a fancy cook," Stiles says, like it's some deep revelation. "You—I bet you own The Joy of Cooking. I bet you—"

"I own The Joy of Cooking," Derek says.
