"This was never the plan, you know," the angel says.

The fallen angel scoffs. "Would it have come to pass, if it wasn't?"

The human sighs. When they both look over, she asks, "So, is God ineffable or isn't he? Is there a plan or is there not? Did he just go out for a beer one day and never come home?" When they both open their mouths, she gestures sharply. "It doesn't fucking matter, you dickwads," she says. "We've got a job to do, so let's get to it, yeah?"

Outside, the stars are still falling from the sky.

"We have got to stop meeting like this," Bucky says as he picks the lock on the shackles holding Steve down.

Steve just blinks at him, head lolling to the side. "You're drugged," Bucky says. "Okay. Shit."

Something explodes to the west; Bucky didn't set any charges there, plus his still have four minutes to go, so that must be Steve's team. In the wake of - everything, Steve had decided they should all work together more often, and when Bucky remembered enough, he was glad of that. Steve needed the best watching out for him.

"C'mon, pal, time to get up now," Bucky said, pulling Steve to his feet. He staggered into Bucky, mumbling something unintelligible, and something else exploded. "Steve, hey, Steve," he says, gently patting at Steve's cheek. "Steve, you with me? We've got to go."

Steve mumbles something else. So far, Bucky is not impressed with the Avengers' Steve-wrangling ability. He steps towards the door, towing Steve with him, and shoots the five minions he sees in the hall.

Something roars; there's another explosion. Three more minions go down, though only two to his shots. "Hawkeye?" he calls without stepping into the hallway. "Widow?"

"Who the fuck are you?" demands a rough voice. Hawkeye, then. Someone the Widow trusts implicitly, which is a very short list.

"I'm – I was Winter Soldier," he calls. Steve lists to the side, so Bucky catches him again. "I've got Captain America here, but he's too drugged to fight his way out."

A very charged silence is filled with more minions. Fuck, how many of them are there?

"Get him out of here," Hawkeye orders as the minions fall to both a hail of bullets and arrows. "If you do anything to hurt him –"

Finally, Bucky's charges go off. "Just burn this place down," Bucky shouts over his shoulder, guiding Steve towards the exit.

If Hawkeye replies, it's lost in the screaming.

"Just like old times, eh, Steve?" Bucky asks.

Steve's answer is to trip over air, so yeah, it is.

"We each have a purpose," she says. "And we keep living until we achieve it. You know? Like, there's some goal we have to meet, and until we do, we're sent back, time after time after time."

"That's either incredibly sad," he says, "or just a bit heartwarming. Eternal second chances, you know what I mean?"

"Yeah," she says, reaching out for his hand.

“So, do you think we’ve been here before?” he asks, smiling into her eyes.

Title: Rachel

Pairings: Cassie/OMC
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 185
Point of view: third
Prompt: any, any(/any),

time cannot contain You
You fill eternity
Sin can never stain You
And death has lost its sting

In a hundred years, Rachel is still one of the most popular names across the Earth. Marco, Jacob, Cassie – all popular, but not as much. And Tobias… he's mentioned in the books, the TV series, the movies, but usually only as the tragedy. Ax is a legend, the alien that fought for humanity.

But Rachel… there's a Rachel Day to honor her, celebrated by every nation. There are official biographies, fictional adventure series, children who dress like her on Halloween. Captain America and Rachel Berenson are the American heroes, but everyone knows that Rachel Berenson was real.

Cassie's daughter Hope has a daughter named Yvonne, who has a daughter named Annalyn, who has a daughter named Rachel. All of them are gifted at morphing, and all of them dream of the stars.

Cassie dies after a long life, the only one who does. She dies in her sleep, dreaming of being young again, of laughing with Rachel, of holding Jake's hand, of running through a field on four powerful legs. She dies with Rachel's voice in her ears - I've been waiting for you.

Title: welcome to the future

Pairings: Steve/Bucky
Rating: PG
Wordcount: 140
Point of view: third
Prompt: any, any,

I have seen birth, I have seen death
Lived to see a lover's final breath
Do you see my guilt? Should I feel afright?
Is the fire of hesitation burning bright?

Everyone is so sorry. They apologize, offer condolences, promise to give him all the time in the world to adjust –

And then there are aliens attacking. Then Fury gives him missions, and what else does he have to do? What else can he do?

But then - then -


Who the hell is Bucky?

He's been going on missions for Fury, and he fought the aliens because how could he not? But this.

"I didn't know about Barnes," Fury says, and Steve believes him. That doesn't matter. He's tearing the whole thing apart and burning the pieces, rooting out every last shred, and there is nothing that will stop him.

You're my mission, Bucky's ghost says, and Steve doesn't fight back.

There's nothing without Bucky.

(He wakes up in a hospital bed and knows there's something of Bucky left.)
