    Summary

    N’Jadaka didn’t believe in the gods of his people. But belief was not a prerequisite of the gods’ attention, and the blood of the Panther tribe ran in N’Jadaka’s veins. Bast took hold of his soul in her mighty jaws and lifted it free of his body. She gave him a warning shake, just as she would a misbehaving kitten, and set him back. With one careful claw, she tweaked his path through time into a twisting loop. Wayward and abandoned though he was, N’Jadaka was still of her tribe. He could set things right, if given the chance.

    Erik gets a do-over. Erik gets a lot of do-overs. Or: Erik Killmonger's own personal version of Groundhog Day, only with a lot more murder, dying, trips to the ancestral plane, awkward family conversations, and divine intervention.

    Summary

    “I’m so proud of you, my nephew.” Uncle cups Zuko’s face in his lined hand. The gesture is so tender, his palm so warm, that Zuko has to take a fortifying breath against the sudden swell of emotion in his chest.

    “I want to be a good leader, Uncle,” Zuko says. “I want to look after my people.”

    “You will,” Uncle says. “You are, nephew.”

     

    In a new era of peace, Zuko works to be a very different Fire Lord than his forefathers. Based on this tumblr post.

    Summary

    There is the relationship you build for yourself, and then there is the one that finds you. And sometimes, in the strangest of ways, they find each other.

    [Laura trusted Natasha enough to know she could put her husband back together in ways that she couldn't, and Natasha trusted Laura enough to know that if she had to leave Clint for weeks on end, he would be taken care of in a way no one else would bother to understand.]

    I read this first as it was going up live, and it is still one of the most incredible things ever. So glad it is preserved here.

    Summary

    John had obviously managed to take care of himself just fine before he met me, and he had Cujo the Linebacker to take care of whatever he couldn't himself (though I got the impression that John was perfectly capable of handling most threats). I'd only known the man for a few hours and I'd apparently already dragged him into my friend circle whether he wanted to be there or not – all of that meant that it was my job to keep him safe.
