Pairings/Characters: Bruce/Tony, Phil Coulson/Pepper Potts
Spoilers: Through Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a sequel to Bear Me Safe Through Dark
Warnings: None
Word Count: ~53,000
Summary: Bruce and Tony know there’s a mole in SHIELD, and they have no idea who they can trust, but they’re as committed as ever to saving the world. Jennifer learns that balancing being a superhero and being a lawyer doesn’t come without consequences, and Pepper just wants to keep Stark Industries on the right track.
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
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~42,000
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

May. 24th, 2016 10:22 pm
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.
Can't Win For Losing
Author: enigmaticblue
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Jim Ellison/Samantha Carter, Blair Sandburg
Spoilers: Through the end of The Sentinel and S5.21, “Meridian”. Takes place soon after The Sorrows You Keep, and a part of my TS/SG-1 series.
Warnings: Major (canonical) character death
Word Count: 2028
Summary: Can’t win for losing, Jim thought, and wondered if their luck would ever turn around.
A/N: Written for the April Amnesty challenge for [community profile] hc_bingo, for the prompt “stranded/survival situation.”

FYI, this might end up being part of a longer story someday, and I'm definitely planning a long sequel, but I needed to post a crossover for hc_bingo, and I also needed to deal with Meridian. This is what happened.
Her Heart’s Apocalypse
Author: enigmaticblue
Rating: R
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Tony/always-a-girl!Bruce
Spoilers: For The Incredible Hulk through The Avengers
Word Count: ~31,000
Warnings: References to child abuse, domestic violence (both consistent with Bruce Banner's comics backstory), transphobic and homophobic language (brief), alcoholism. Note that this is always-a-girl!Bruce, not a trans character
Summary: R. B. Banner remains a mystery that no one can quite grasp, at least not until she meets Tony Stark.
A/N: Title taken from the Green Day song, “Extraordinary Girl”. Originally, I was writing this for the trope_bingo “genderswap” prompt, but then it took me a year to finish (OMG), and here we are. So, I mostly wrote it just to see if I could. It was an interesting exercise, that’s for sure.

On AO3 due to length.
Younger Now Than We Were Before
Author: enigmaticblue
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Bruce Banner/Tony Stark, Steve Rogers/Peggy Carter, Peggy Carter/Daniel Sousa
Spoilers: General spoilers for Agent Carter and Captain America: Winter Soldier.
Word Count: ~19,500
Summary: Bruce can’t allow Steve’s anguished expression to move him. “Don’t you think there are things we’d want to change, too?” he demands. (Or the one where Steve, Bruce, and Tony travel to the past and discover some interesting things about themselves and each other.)
A/N: A few things: this fic is set somewhere in the nebulous time between the fall of SHIELD and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but I’m ignoring anything in AoU that doesn’t fit with this fic. This story is brought to you by several IM conversations [personal profile] thomasina75 and I had while watching Agent Carter. I have tried to make it as plausible as possible without fudging too much. Finally, this fills the February [community profile] hc_bingo challenge for the following four prompts: “forced to rely on enemy/rival,” “nausea,” “comfort food or item/feeding someone,” and “WILD CARD (grief)”

For my friends who aren't into slash, the Bruce/Tony is more pre-slash or friendship than anything else.
Dust Bunny
Rating: PG
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Dean/Cas, Ben Braeden/OFC, OCs
Spoilers: Set the spring after Every Prodigal Knows, part of my Sun 'verse
Word Count: ~1600
Summary: Dean had never really thought of himself as a cat person.

When the Storm Is Finally Through
Author: enigmaticblue
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Dean/Cas, Ben Braeden/OFC, OCs
Spoilers: Takes place shortly after Dust Bunny
Word Count: ~4400
Warnings: Um, tooth-rotting fluff?
Summary: Life had a tendency to throw a wrench in the works.

It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
Author: enigmaticblue
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters, too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Tony/Bruce (background), Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Clint BartonSpoilers: For Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Fraction and Aja’s entire run of Hawkeye, and a sequel of sorts to Things We Lost in the Fire
Word Count: ~4300
Summary: When asked where he was when SHIELD fell, Dean would say, “In a cage, with my brother.”
A/N: Written for the hc_bingo prompt, “cages.” This is not entirely compliant with SHIELD, as was probably obvious from the last fic, but I think I’ve tweaked things enough to make sense. I hope. Also, this is completely non-compliant with Clint’s character in Age of Ultron. I much prefer Fraction’s version.

Word Count: ~3400
Summary: Sam needs to not be alone right now, and her long-lost cousin presents a golden opportunity.
A/N: Written for the hc_bingo prompt "broken bones." This probably could have been ten times longer, but I'm under the gun. If there's enough interest, I'll continue it.

Sins of the Father
Author: enigmaticblue
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Spoilers: Part of my Sun ‘verse, set just after Gone Fishing but before While the Weary World Is Sleeping
Pairings/Characters: Dean/Castiel, Sam Winchester, Ben Braeden, OCs
Word Count: ~14,000
Summary: The sins of the father are often visited upon his children, and sometimes in unexpected ways.
A/N: A birthday gift for thomasina75 (late! Sorry!), who asked for Winchesters, Dean/Cas, Sun ‘verse, and a hunt that John Winchester never finished coming back to haunt them. Also fills the hc_bingo prompt, “magical trouble.”
