Pō Pouli ‘A‘aki (A Night So Dark It Bites With the Teeth) [Hawaii Five-0, Steve/Danny]
“Is it just me or do those birds not make any sense?” Danny slurred, squinting upward at the black sheet of night sky through the branches of shower trees and coconut palms twinkling with colored lights– Honolulu in December.
“Totally ruined,” Steve agreed, and kissed him.
All the Things Forgotten Scream for Help [Marvel Cinematic Universe, Steve/Bucky]
The Winter Soldier has a recurring dream.
With a strangled, gasping shout, Bucky Barnes wakes up.
Patterns in Nature [Marvel Cinematic Universe, Steve/Bucky]
There's still a tie between them, a pull that Steve can just barely feel, has felt since he shaped his bruised jaw and split lips around the words I'm with you until the end of the line and watched the Winter Soldier's eyes go round with something not exactly like recognition and more than a little bit like horror.
It starts to snow.
Kō‘eha‘eha i ka lā, wela i ka pō [Hawaii Five-0, Steve/Danny]
“Tell me again why there's no air conditioning in this house?” Danny complained.
“I take it back,” he huffed, but even as he spoke he was flipping them and leaning in for a dirty, hungry kiss, and maybe Steve's smile against his lips was a smug one but, well, fuck it.
Hey, it's really nice in here [Marvel Cinematic Universe, Steve/Sam]
They had set out to look for Bucky, but mostly what they found was underground Hydra outposts.
“Oh, that's how it is.”
Raise a Glass to Turnings of the Season [Marvel Cinematic Universe, Steve & Bucky (gen)]
James doesn't understand it, not really.
He doesn't understand it—but sometimes, when Steve stomps up to the porch smudged with dirt, his jaw gone stubbly because he wants to grow a beard again, his arms full of carrots and his eyes soft with a quiet kind of peace, and James holds the screen door open for him so he can kick off his boots and carry his prizes to the kitchen sink to carefully wash each one—sometimes he thinks he very nearly can.
Reconciliation [Teen Titans (animated series), Robin & Batman (gen)]
“I already have a father.”
“The Titans are gonna flip!”
The Worst Fear [Marvel Cinematic Universe, Tony/Pepper]
Since Tony Stark had been captured by the Ten Rings and had come back with metal in his chest and a fire in his eyes, Pepper had become well acquainted with fear.
That was the worst.
I'll Be Yours (A Love Story) [DC Universe (comics), one-sided Tim/Dick]
My mom and dad don't love me.
"I am Jason's tutor."*
*Last line of Ch. 10; this is a WIP.
Mana‘o [Hawaii Five-0, Danny (gen)]
When the question of God and the afterlife came up– I think that people make stuff up to make themselves feel better, he'd said.
That, Danny could believe in.

Wow, Patterns in Nature is third highest already? ...The power of Steve/Bucky is not to be underestimated, I guess.
