A/N: Written for the 2016 Marvel Big Bang. Title from the Kongos’ “Come With Me Now.” Originally, this fic was supposed to cover Avengers: Age of Ultron, and then I realized there was no way I could do it justice. For that reason, there’s a bit of sequelitis going on with this fic. Just know that another long, plotty story is on its way.

Wonderful art by digitalwave here. Go give her some love.

Disclaimer: I don't own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Rating: PG-13
Pairings/Characters: Tony/Bruce, Skye, the rest of the Avengers and the SHIELD team
Spoilers: Takes up immediately where Force of Nature left off. Uses and disregards wide swaths of canon for Avengers: Age of Ultron and season 2 of Agents of SHIELD

Summary: Call them what you will—Inhumans or enhanced people or freaks—they’re about to take center stage. As Skye struggles to find her place on the Avengers’ team, torn between the family she’s creating and her duty to the rest of the world, there’s a battle going on over SHIELD and what it will become. And for Bruce and Tony, there are decisions to be made, because just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. Alliances will shift, rifts will form, and there’s no telling who will be standing at the end of the day. Because everything changes; everything but the truth.

Word Count: ~18,000
Summary: It’s not going anywhere; they both know that. Somehow, they can’t help themselves.
A/N: I think that, technically, Tony should have a single bed at this point, but he has at least a double in S13, so I’m going to roll with that. A lot can happen in a few months/years. Fills the “WILD CARD” square for the hc_bingo prompt: “forbidden love”

Kintsugi

enigmaticblue: Spuffy (spuffy)
This was my entry for [community profile] seasonal_spuffy, but we were out of town, and I'm finally getting around to posting it here.

Title: Kintsugi
Author: enigmaticblue
Rating: NC-17
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Buffy/Spike, Willow, Dawn, Tara
Spoilers: For S6, and a sequel to my fic, The Temporary Nature of Any Precious Thing
Word Count: ~13,500
Warnings: Abuse of magic, flashbacks to the Whirlwind and references to rape and general pillaging by the same.
Summary: Brokenness can be beautiful, particularly when you can be broken together.
A/N: Written for the 2016 spring Seasonal Spuffy challenge, A New Era, with a hat-tip to [profile] garnigal for the title. For those of you who don’t know, kintsugi is the Japanese art of golden repair: repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, and not something to disguise. For the purposes of this fic, the prior story ended somewhere in the vicinity of “Smashed/Wrecked” and this one picks up right after that one.

Note: If I haven’t already nattered on enough, I am throwing canon out the window here. This is a smaller story than I had intended, but real life got in the way. I hope you all enjoy it anyway.
