Fic: spreading wide my narrow Hands to gather Paradise [ofc/ofc, original work]
Lindy hunches into her sweater. "How's the garden?"

Maura squints at her. "You're not serious about that, are you?" Maura tears off a piece of muffin: zucchini, as it turns out. No nuts. Lindy knows what she likes.

Fic: Making Space and Time [derek/stiles, teen wolf au]
It’s dark and it’s cold and it’s gray and he kicks off his shoes and he clothes and he curls up on his little bed and he stares up at the sloped ceiling and he breathes, because this is the place he always comes to catch his breath after a long shift, only this time, the air seems to rattle in his lungs, like his chest is empty too.

But he sleeps, a deep, dreamless sleep, and hopes it will be better when he wakes.

In which Stiles is sad and lonely until the day he finds a dog that's just as lost as he is.

Fic: whirlwind in the thorn tree [matt/foggy, daredevil]
The work wears him thin but he can’t stop. Not now. Not ever. This is who he is. The Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. He doesn’t have anyone to pretend for anymore. (The freedom isn’t as liberating as he’d thought it would be, leaves a bitter aftertaste in his throat, but Matt swallows that with the rest of his regrets and carries on just as he’s always done.)

Fic: Careful Fear and Dead Devotion [carter/richie, hockey rpf au]
“Why put yourself through any of this?”

“Because it’s you,” Jeff says, like it’s really that simple, and maybe it is. “It’s always been you.”

Fic: hold me until we crumble [bucky/steve, captain america]
Pauline and Matt share an uncomfortably long look before they speak to Steve again. “Captain Rogers,” Pauline says, at the same time Matt blurts, “Would you like to be a guest appraiser on the Roadshow?”

“Uh,” says Steve.

Fic: The Whole Glass Of Water [derek, teen wolf gen]
Derek stands frozen for a moment, disbelieving, before his hands come slowly forward. Its fur is surprisingly soft, and he buries his fingers in it as he strokes his way down its back. He catches its hindquarters on instinct when it springs out of the cage and onto his chest, shoving it face cold nose-first into the crook of his neck, and beneath the rumble of its purrs Derek can still make out the careful ticking of its heart.

If he leaves it here, it's going to die alone. It's a sentence he knows all too well.

“What sort of paperwork do you need me to fill out?”

Fic: Homefront [steve/tony, avengers]
He goes to his own room, where it's quiet and dark, and calls Coulson.

"Stark," Coulson sighs. "What did you blow up, and how much is it going to cost?"

"I think Cap's suicidal," Tony replies.

There's a long silence on the other end of the line.
