Kingdoms of Misrule 1/? [Tony/Steve(s), Mature]
by Meredith Bronwen Mallory (garnettrees)
Rating: Mature
Trigger Warnings: Mentions of past drug use, Howard's less-than-stellar parenting, mentions of underage sexuality (they did let Tony loose at MIT), irresponsible use of alcohol, non-graphic captivity/torture, PTSD, philosophical/Lovecraftian horror.
Additional Warnings/Enticements: Tony-whump, pre-Civil War AU, lots of Steve(s), super-sekrit art club, lots of comfort to wash down the hurt.

Summary: How was Steve to know the hot terror that roiled in Stark's astral gut at the sight of his prone form, cold and broken in the vision Wanda had contrived? There are feelings there-- though they go willfully unrecognized. It happens. Another nuisance of organic chemistry, these… by-products. Every now and then they get so strong as to become variables Stark must actually factor for, but he'll be damned before he hangs a specific label on them.
</p>


Strung up and soaking like salted meat in an abattoir, Tony buries his face as best he can against his aching arm and calculates the odds of external aid.


Having distanced himself from the Avengers in the aftermath of Ultron, Tony finds himself abducted and held by unknown agencies. Wishing he were more certain the Avengers will look for him, he waits for an opportunity to make his own break.

When they do come for him, there are two things of which Tony is unaware. One, he's a lot further from home than he ever imagined; and two, his complicated relationship with Steve Rogers is something of a cosmic constant.

Lieder Ohne Worte (Songs Without Words) 2/5

by Meredith Bronwen Mallory (garnettrees)
Rating: Mature
Disclaimer: X-Men, all associated characters and imagery are all property of Marvel Comics. I make no money by writing this, and intend no disrespect.
Trigger Warnings: Dub-con inherent in a/o heat situations, arguing as foreplay, fictional society/religion enforcing power dynamics and associated discrimination, author read _way_ too much pulp Sci-Fi at an impressionable age. Angst. Cliches associated with a/o universes– pride? My Id knows not this ‘pride’ of which you speak. ^_~
Additional Warnings: author’s questionable world building.
Summary: Charles Xavier, former freedom fighter and member of a fledgeling interstellar democracy, returns home early to surprise his bondmate. A simple enough proposition, if not for the fact his mate is Erik Lehnsherr– convicted saboteur, Separatist leader, assassin…

And the most notorious omega in the galaxy.

Disclaimer: X-Men, all associated characters and imagery are all property of Marvel Comics. I make no money by writing this, and intend no disrespect.
Trigger Warnings: Captivity, obsession, depictions of battle (mostly with fantasy elements)
Additional Warnings: author's questionable world building
Summary: "Once, when all the world was green and young, there lived two very different little boys..."
Now these boys have grown, thrust onto a political battlefield filled with long-held grudges and secret motives. Charles has spent the majority of his adult life studying and teaching the finer points of spell casting.
Erik... Erik fights for what is his.

Title: The Future Starts Slow 2/?
by Meredith Bronwen Mallory (garnettrees)
Rating: M
Disclaimer: X-Men, all associated characters and imagery are all property of Marvel Comics. I make no money by writing this, and intend no disrespect.
Trigger Warnings: Serial Killer!AU (further details within)
Summary: Charles Xavier has survived abuse, the murder of his parents, and the car-cash that almost cost the lives of both himself and his cousin, Tony Stark. Now almost eighteen, Charles is distinguishing himself in the Behavioral Psychology department at MIT, determined to make his name into a symbol of what he is and what he knows, not merely of what's happened to him. His world has entered a predictable pattern, until a prison break and childhood promise converge to remind him that no man may dictate his own future, and the seeds that persist most strongly often start out slow.


This story is dedicated to Carly, who suggested The Kill's "Future Starts Slow" in relation to The Singer, Not The Song. It was perfect, but it also inspired this story, too.

Title: Peaceable Kingdom 1/1
by Meredith Bronwen Mallory (garnettrees)
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: X-Men, all associated characters and imagery are all property of Marvel Comics. I make no money by writing this, and intend no disrespect.
Trigger Warnings: Vague Holocaust references, brief period-appropriate racism regarding Romani in Poland, possible abuse of parentheticals.

Summary: "Give him to me," En Sabah Nur intones-- cool, patient, thick in eternity. "This one last loved thing. Surely, if you loved them then this telepath is a small thing to ask. Let go of it, sacrifice it, and all the pain will stop."

An expansion on the scene just prior Charles' abduction in XMA. Erik's most dire choices are motivated by a depth of love, not cruelty. En Sabah Nur knows just how to exploit this to obtain that which will make him truly all-powerful.

Summary: The body of Senator Naberrie never made it to Naboo, seized en route by the newly minted Imperial fleet. With all vows broken save one, Vader intends to collect upon the very debt that swayed him to the Dark Side and uncover the power Darth Plagueis once knew.
This is the cautionary tale of Padme's second life.
