    Summary

    Amy Santiago detests pep rallies.

    It’s probably among the most boring, bookworm-esque things about her - which is really saying something, considering she spends most Friday nights catching up on recorded episodes of Wheel of Fortune when not competing in her highly competitive literature-based trivia league at O’Hannigan’s - but really, truly, she hates them. Hates the uncomfortable chill of the large gym (to accommodate for the 500 students packed into the stands, or so Principal Holt says), the crackling speaker blown out from years of student emcees screaming into the microphones, hates the way the marching band’s sound glances off the wall opposite where they sit in the stands, echoing back harshly to create an off-beat dissonance guaranteed to have a headache unfurling in her temples in a matter of seconds.

    But most of all - more than anything - she hates the annual teacher relay race.

    Summary

    “I was scared. Talos’ wife called to tell me he was gone, and so was half the Skrull population, and when I came here Fury was—” Carol’s voice gives, and she buries her face in Maria’s shoulder for a moment. “I was so scared I’d come here, and you wouldn’t be here.”

    “I was scared too,” says Maria, her arms wrapping around Carol. “Thought for a minute you’d turned to dust with everyone else, too.”

    or: Carol and Maria, twenty years later. (Spoilers for Captain Marvel.)

    Summary


    “Oh, I’m so sorry miss – honestly I wasn’t paying any attention – and oh look, you dropped your – here let me – is there any way I can-” He might be a man now, but he still stammers and rambles when he’s embarrassed, head still bent as he tries to shake the dirt off her novel. She smirks at the sight.

    “Why, Mr Blythe, are all the Parisians as clumsy as you are?” Anne is relieved by the steadiness of her voice, even though her heart is thumping in her chest and her mind is whirling with questions as to why he is back, why now.

    Gilbert goes to Paris, Anne goes to Queens, and years later they both return to Avonlea and meet again. They should be older and wiser, but when neither of ever admits to their mistakes and misunderstandings, will they ever sort themselves out?

    Summary

    There are few people Arya Stark dislikes more than Gendry Waters. One of those people might be whoever gave an arrogant, miserable dick like Waters the Gryffindor quidditch captain's badge.

    Gendry just wants to win a championship, prove a few people wrong, and find a way to put up with his entitled, spoiled seeker.

    Featuring: lots of quidditch, lots of bickering, not enough actual studying, an intrusive Ned Dayne, a clueless Podrick Payne, some mistletoe, some miscommunication, and a few hundred other clichés.
