    Summary

    "You can't be serious." Jonathan Sims raises his eyes at last to properly look at Georgie, expecting her to laugh and make some quip about finally getting him to put the damn book down, at least.

    "Well, I am," she shoots back.

    He sets his book aside and turns fully towards her, betrayal clear on his face. "A blind date, really?"

    Jon makes the frankly terrible decision to go on a blind date with one Martin Blackwood. Fate ensues. AU where Jon and Georgie are still friends, Georgie likes finding dates for her friends, Martin doesn't work at the institute, and everyone is just a bit happier while canon spooky stuff goes on in the background. Takes place juuust barely pre-canon in the beginning but catches up quickly. Inspired as usual by the wonderful conversations with my friend RavenXavier/somuchbetterthanthat.

    Summary

    Once upon a time a beautiful Prince lived in a shining castle, given anything he could ever want. But the Prince was vain, cruel, and when he turns away an old woman seeking shelter, she reveals herself as an enchantress and curses him.
    The beautiful flowers inked on his skin disappear, replaced with horrible black thorns that grow higher every day. "Find the Rose that can bloom among your Thorns, learn to love, and your curse will be lifted." she tells him, but the Prince doesn't know HOW to love, and stripped of his beauty and pride, he resigns himself to life as a monster.
    Peter knows there is more to life than what his village holds, and when things go terribly wrong, he runs away. Lost in wintery woods, Peter finds a dark castle, and a mysterious Prince who stays in the shadows, a hood and cloak covering his skin.
    In a tale as old as time, between awkward dinners, snow ball fights, reading in the library, and dancing, the Cursed Prince, and the beautiful boy fall in love.
    But when Peter leaves, the Prince's heart is broken, and he gives in to his curse.
    Is Wade doomed to be a beast forever? Or will Peter come back, and bloom with a Rose that can save him?

    Summary

    It's the oldest Steve has ever looked and there's nothing about it that doesn't make Bucky want to reach over and cover his face with his hand, shield his eyes from the sun, get his fingers in those little baby crow’s feet impressions on his temples. He sets the cup not so silently into the saucer and scowls.

    "Is that a linen shirt?"
