Hermione woke up the next morning with her arms still around Fred.  Her face was buried in his t-shirt.  His scent was all around her, mingling with her own.  

The sun was streaming down through the parted curtains, and she could see the freshly fallen snow outside.  She decided to get up to close the curtains, though.  In the matter of a few minutes, the glare of the sun on the snow would be blinding.  

But just as she started to roll over, Fred grasped at her arm.  “Just five more minutes, Granger…”  

She couldn’t tell if he was fully awake or not.  His voice was clear and ungroggy sounding.  But he hadn’t made a single peep for the entire time she’d been awake.  And if she knew anything about Fred, it was that it was physically impossible for him to be quiet if he wasn’t asleep.  

But there was no harm in waiting a few minutes, she supposed, settling back into her former position.

He didn’t know why he was surprised.  

This was typical of him, really.

But he still couldn’t figure out why he was back again.  Why he found himself being led down an alleyway and through a curtained doorway into one of the makeshift homes the impoverished had made out of the rubble of the ruined city.  Again.

Well…he knew why.

Steve hadn’t stopped thinking about Darcy for a second since he’d first met her a fortnight before.  

He’d been back to visit her a handful of times.  Each time he came earlier in the day.  Stayed longer.     

But he wanted to do was to bring her back to the palace with him.  Shield her from all of the pain and dirt and sweat.  

Darcy appeared in the doorway.  “Back so soon, your majesty?”  

“Call me Steve,” he implored her.  Again.  

“Back so soon…Steve?” she repeated.    

“Come back with me,” he blurted. “Come live in the palace. I have plenty of room.”  

She blinked, obviously surprised by his outburst.  Hell, he had no shortage of surprises today, it seemed.  

“I can’t…” she murmured, walking close enough to touch him, but refraining from doing it.  “You know I can’t…”  

He closed his eyes to ward off the tears that threatened to fall.  “Why can’t you?”  

“There are people who need me.  I can’t…just leave them.”  

“If you were with me, you’d be safe.  And you’d be in a better position to help more.”

She chuckled dryly at that.  “They’re going to let the king’s…” she trailed off.  “Special friend make decisions?  Hmm?”  

“They’d let the queen make any decision she wanted…” he whispered, leaning closer to her.  “The queen could say or do…pretty much anything with the king’s permission, which she would have in abundance.”  

Her jaw dropped.  “Steve…you can’t be serious.”  

“I am, though.”

Her breath was shallow.  But she nodded her head.  “Okay.”  

“What?” he peered down at her, unsure if he heard her correctly.  “What did you say?”  

A smile slowly spread across her face.  “I said…yes.  Your majesty.”

Length:  397 words

Tags:  No Powers AU, Period Piece

“Why can’t you just…” Bucky gestured widely and in a very over-exaggerated manner with his arms towards the cabin window.  “JUMP out the window and back into the ocean?”  He quickly averted his eyes as she stood up, her fin now completely transformed back into her human legs. He now had a completely nude woman in his cabin.   

“Because I can’t,” Darcy said desperately.  “I can’t go back with them.  There’s something evil afoot in my old faction…you have to take me to find help.”  

Bucky blinked a few times, both in disbelief and in the hopes that he would wake up from this nightmare.  

“I am a first mate.  On a…PIRATE ship.  What makes you think I could convince the Captain to help you?”  

“Because…”  Darcy began.  “On the island where I will find assistance, there is also a cave FULL of unguarded treasure.” She glanced towards the door of the cabin.  “Enough for everyone here to be able to retire if they wanted.”  

He inhaled sharply at the thought, realizing that while they could just simply dump the mermaid over into the water and be done with her…he wouldn’t ever be content with himself if he allowed that to happen.

And the lure of the treasure was enough to get the rest of the men on board.  

The Captain…now he was another story indeed.  Captain Rogers wasn’t your ordinary pirate.  

But as luck would have it, neither was Bucky.   

He nodded, fetching her a blanket from his bunk to cover up with.  “Fine.  Fine, I’ll talk to the Captain.  I’m not making any promises.”  

Darcy beamed at him as she wrapped the blanket around herself.  “You don’t have to.  I believe in you.”  

Bucky snorted back a laugh.  “Didn’t anyone ever tell you not to trust a pirate?”  

She shrugged.  “Didn’t anyone ever tell you not to trust a mermaid?”  

“No.  They told me that they didn’t exist.  That they were just figments of lonely old sailors’ imaginations, things dreamed up by men who hadn’t felt the touch of a woman in years.”  

Darcy arched her eyebrow wickedly.  “Have you felt the touch of a woman lately, Bucky Barnes?”  

His skin tingled at the mere thought of it.  “I’d prefer not to answer that.  My lady.”  He touched the top of his head and turned to leave as quickly as his feet could carry him.

“I’m just saying, Diana…I’d make a great swashbuckler.”  

She laughed and reached for him, pulling him close for another kiss.  “You know, I think you’re right?  All you’re missing is the puffy shirt that’s open to your navel…and then you’d be fit for one of the covers of my books.”  

Steve chuckled at the image.  “I’d need longer hair.  Fabio hair.”  

Diana threw back the covers and got up, walking with purpose towards the closet.  

“Wait.  What are you doing?”  

“I’m finding my Rapunzel wig from Halloween.  I need a mental image of you with Fabio hair.”  

“No…no…Diana…the purpose of a mental image is that it’s in your head.  Not happening in real life.”  

She smirked and plucked the blonde wig from its resting place in the closet, casually straightening a few pieces of rogue hair.  “Okay, I need a real life image, then.”

“Your thoughts on Jane Austen are SUPER interesting, by the way…” Darcy leaned up to press her lips to Steve’s once more.  

A low chuckle rumbled and his fingers carded through her hair.  His lips moved against hers, his beard scratching pleasantly at her skin. “Mmm…yours too…I kind of liked your one argument.  The one where you climbed on top of me to press home your point?”  His tone was teasing, but his hand on her waist was anything but.  

“Liked that, didya? You know, I haven’t heard YOUR thoughts on that particular point, maybe you could…ya know.  Reciprocate?”  

He quickly rolled her over to her back, propping her legs up over his shoulders in the process. “I’ll do ya one better, Darce…”  He turned his head and kissed her along the inside of her leg.  “I’ll see your point and raise you a new one…”  He slowly began kissing up her leg.  

“I like the way you argue, Rogers…”

“Miss Lewis…I wondered if I might…have a word with you…”  James stammered, his face turning quite red in the process.  

“I thought that was the reason for the walk about the garden…” Darcy said with a warm smile.  “Or are you a connoisseur of award-winning roses?”

He returned her smile, his face no less red than it was before.  “While the roses are lovely, they don’t compare to their curator…”  

“You flatter me, sir…”

“I wondered if it would be possible…to speak with your father before I take my leave this evening.”  

Her heart leapt into her throat and she was barely able to compose herself to craft a reply.  “Papa is in his study, and will likely be there for the rest of the day.”  

“Good, that’s…that’s…very good, Miss Lewis.”  

“Darcy,” she corrected gently.  “I’m sure you can call me by my given name now.”  

“Darcy…” he said, his smile even broader than before.  “Only if you’ll do me the same service.”  

“Very well.  James.”

Darcy walked into the lab much earlier than he’d been expecting, given her gratuitous alcohol consumption the night before.  

And she was…really chipper.

Bruce was guessing she just handled her hangovers really well.  But he must have been giving her a look, so she answered the unasked question anyway. 

“Bacon and eggs.  Greasy breakfast food.  And coffee.”  She tapped her nose and winked at him like it was some huge conspiracy as she dropped her bag on the desk.   

He turned back to his computer and was all ready to just begin the day like the previous one hadn’t happened.  But she cleared her throat.  

So he looked back at her.  

“About last night…” she began.  

“Darcy…it’s really…” he shook his head.  “You don’t…”  

“You are not too old for me,” she stated bluntly.  “And more importantly, you don’t get to tell me you are too old for me. If I’m too young for you, that’s another matter.  But don’t put this on me, dude.”  

He frowned, opening his mouth to voice a rebuttal, but she wasn’t done, so he closed it again.  

“And I’m not your lab assistant.  I’m Jane’s.  I help you out of the goodness of my too-large-always-bleeding heart.”  

He couldn’t help but smile at that.  She did have a too-large-always-bleeding heart.  It was one of his favorite things about her.  

“And I was drunk last night.  That was the only thing that was inappropriate about our interaction. So, if you don’t want to try anything because I’m too young for you, or if you have some weird issue with dating someone who brings you tea and makes you go to sleep and otherwise adult…well, that’s on you, Banner.  Not me.”  

His mouth fell open again, but he couldn’t think of anything to say.  “I…I don’t have a problem.”  

She smiled and sat down at her desk.  “Good.”  

Darcy didn’t say anything for a few minutes.  The only reason he knew it was a few minutes was because he kept glancing at the clock to make sure that time was indeed moving and not standing still.  

“Bruce.  The ball is in your court.  It’s been there for a couple minutes now.  I keep nudging it against your foot.  Make a play.”  

“You know…sports references aren’t making this any easier,” he said with a short laugh.  

“Fine.  I guess, to put it in your terms…I have written out the equations and passed the chalk to you.  Now I’m just waiting for you to couple them.”  She smirked triumphantly and he was pretty sure he fell in love with her right then. 

If he wasn’t already before.  

“Do you eat dinner?”  he asked, chastising himself for the most awkward turn of phrase in the entire world.  

“Usually alone, but for you, I’ll make an exception.”

Darcy laughed nervously, pulling her bag up into her lap.  “It’s just…isn’t my house out of your way, Buck?  And this ‘Stanger…she’s got a tank, right?”  

He smirked.  “Yeah?  Pretty big one, actually.”  

“You want gas money?”  

He made a face in her direction.  “No.  If it was a problem, I wouldn’t’na offered to give ya a ride. Let me do a nice thing, Lewis.”  

Darcy sniffed.  “I’d feel better if you let me give you gas money.”

He glanced in her direction.  “You hungry?  I’m hungry.  Let’s go get a burger or something. You can pay, and then you can…ya know. Stop feelin’ like you owe me or somethin’.”  

“Did you just finagle a date out of me, Barnes?” Darcy asked, a smile pulling at the corners of her mouth.  

He waggled his eyebrows and shifted gears.  “Maybe.  Depends on if you say yes or not.”  

“Okay,” she said with a nod.  

“Okay’s not a yes.”  

“YES, BUCK.  Let’s go get a burger. My treat, you big finagler.”  

He grinned widely.  “I want fries too.”  

“Don’t push your luck.”

“Lemonade?” Darcy asked, inwardly cringing at how obvious she was being.  

Even though Steve was the one working up a sweat with that Thor-forsaken push mower, it was Darcy who was the thirsty one here.  

Transparent, unmissable, obvious thirst for the win, Darce.   

Steve turned to face her, looking almost surprised for a minute that someone else was outside.  But his surprise gave way to a smile that had her melting faster than the ice in her lemonade.  

“I am parched.  And you, are an angel.”  He took the glass she was holding out and gulped down half of it in one go.  

“A thirst angel, maybe…” she blurted, immediately wishing she could go back to being just an angel who brought him cold drinks rather than the awkward sweaty person on their shared back porch.  

Steve grinned, those blue eyes meeting hers and definitely not looking away.  “Yep, that’s exactly what you are.”

Darcy twirled her hair around her finger, rolling over in her bed to face him.  He had his back to her, bent over slightly while he pulled on his pants.  

Reaching over to lightly drag her nails up his spine, she giggled when he shivered.  “Do you really have to go now?” she asked.  

“Well, if I want to keep my job.”  

“So lose this one and get another one Monday when I leave…” she teased.  She swore she was only teasing.  

But Pietro stiffened and turned to face her.  “I could lose my apartment if I quit my job.”  

She frowned.  “Dude, lighten up, I was only kidding…” She rolled back over, taking the satin sheets with her.  “It’s a joke.”

He snorted. “A joke.  Everything’s a joke when you don’t have to work for a living.”  

Okay, she wasn’t going to lie.  That kind of stung.  

She sat up abruptly.  “Look, I know for a fact you didn’t touch the food I ordered for you, or I would have to guess that someone pissed in your Cheerios.”  

“Just…drop it, Darcy. It does not matter.  It is part of…the…details you said you didn’t want.”  

“Pietro…is everything alright, or…?”  

“Look, this should probably be the last time we do this,” he said hurriedly, reaching for his shirt and yanking it over his head. “I shouldn’t have come in that first time, and I shouldn’t have kept coming back…it’s too stressful.  I’m worried we’re going to get caught.”  

Darcy sighed.  “See, stupid-old-me thought that was the draw.”  

“No.  It’s not.  Getting caught means I lose my job.  And then…the other stuff that I already listed.  But none of that means anything to you, does it?”  

Okay, that was absolutely enough.  “HEY!” Darcy sat up and reached for her nightgown, yanking it down so hard over her head that the seams popped.  “Don’t do that.  How was I supposed to know anything you didn’t tell me, Piet? And for another thing?  Don’t sit there and lump me in with your boss or your landlord or whatever just because you can’t tell them off. Don’t take that out on me! I didn’t do ANYTHING but love you.”  

Both of them froze at her sudden declaration.  Pietro turned, crawling up the bed to face her once more.  “What did you say?”  

She swallowed and looked down, yanking back the blanket and getting out of the bed.  “I said I love you.  But I bet that’s somehow…’stupid’ or ‘naive’ or whatever.  But you know what?  I don’t care.  I love you.  I love you because we have been doing all the things that people do when they fall in love.  I’m not going to apologize for it, okay?”  She set her jaw and straightened the hem of her nightgown.  

“Okay…” he said quietly, a small smirk pulling at his lips as he stood up.  He walked closer to her, reaching out to stroke his fingers along her shoulder and upper arm.  “It’s not stupid.  Or naive.”  

She shrugged, but leaned more into his touch as he stepped closer.  “Yeah?” 

“Yeah…” he murmured, leaning down to press his lips gently to hers.  “I love you too.”  

“Yeah?”  she asked, sort of unable to say anything else.  

“And I’m sorry…”

“I would…I would love to go out with you sometime,” she said, with a lot less enthusiasm than how she felt.

Remy wasn’t kidding about that phone call thing.

Not that Darcy tried it out or anything.  It all happened purely on accident.  She didn’t even get to place the call, it was Jane who did.  

They were in Scotland, too.  So like, not even in the same country.  And it was TECHNICALLY a Hydra emergency.  Some Hydra goon who had snuck into their lab had messed with the equipment.  Which had malfunctioned.  

Which was how Darcy found herself on the receiving end of a concussion.  

Which she guessed constituted a Hydra-caused emergency.

Anyway, all she knew was that she woke up from that concussion and found herself looking into the red-glowy eyes of her mutant paramore. All in all, not a bad way to wake up, in her opinion.  

He pressed his lips to her forehead and mumbled something in that Cajun French she loved to hear.  

“Who called you?” Darcy asked.  

“Dr. Foster,” was his reply.  

“Sorry…I know it was far.  It was just a bump on the head, you didn’t have to–”  

“Nonsense, cher…I’m glad she called.”

“He wanted to bring you the head of the toadie who messed with the equipment, but SHIELD didn’t think it was a beheadable offense,” Jane said from her perch in the chair in the corner.  

Remy shrugged.  “I brought him and the rest of his cell in, though…”  

Darcy started to chuckle, but it hurt her head.  “You didn’t have to do that…”  

“Did so,” he argued.  “Wanted my ma cher amio to feel safe…” He pressed a kiss to the hand that wasn’t currently skewered with an I.V drip.

“I feel a lot safer now that you’re here…” she replied, reaching up to run her fingers through his hair.

Darcy kissed him once more, her arms encircling his neck as he bent down to reach her.  

He was tall.  Pietro was tall.  Her husband was tall.  

She swallowed thickly, her hands playing with his hair and stroking the nape of his neck.  It seemed strange, how foreign her husband was to her.  

Even though they’d only met twice before they’d gotten married.  So she wasn’t sure why that came as such a surprise.  

“You’re so short…” he mumbled, nibbling lightly on her bottom lip.

“I prefer to think of it as fun-sized…” Darcy said with a haughty sniff.  

He chuckled and slid his hands down to cup her ass, hauling her up on his front.  Arousal pooled low in her belly when she realized just how jacked and strong he actually was.  “I think I agree.  This is fun…”  

She was eye level with him now.  “Where are we going, Big Guy?”  

Gulping, Pietro threw a fleeting glance over towards the bed.  “Wherever you want.  We don’t have to…tonight, you know…”  

She nodded.  “I know…”  Darcy threw a decidedly less-than-fleeting glance over towards the bed.  It was huge.  King.  With lush pillows and bedding.  

This was a nice hotel.  

Not that she expected anything less from her parents.  

“Why don’t we…head over there?  And we can just…take things as slowly as we want over there?”  

He sighed in relief.  “That sounds… perfect, actually.”

And Hermione was kissing him.  

Draco knew he should stop her.  It was now past six in the morning.  She had only just ended her relationship.  This wasn’t the best timing.  Or even good timing.  

Bloody hell.  It was bad timing.  

His fingers carded through her hair, snagging on a tangle.  They both laughed and he pressed one more kiss to her lips before speaking.  “It’s morning now, Granger…”  

“I know…”  She blinked a few times, her long lashes fluttering before she looked back into his eyes.  “I should go.”

They toppled back towards the bed.  Her bed.  Their bed.

Newt pressed hot kisses along her throat, her jaw.  She slid the coat from his shoulders, her breath a warm sigh against his skin.  

Tina felt like home.  And he’d been away for so very long.  

“The children?” he murmured softly.  

“Asleep,” she answered.  

“Wouldn’t you rather keep them that way?” he asked with a soft chuckle.  

“Oh!  Of course…right…” she reached for her wand, casting a muffling charm on the room.  “I just…not used to having to do that…”  She giggled and kissed his lips.

His heart wrenched at her words.  He really wasn’t home all that often these days, was he?  

“Well, get used to it, Mrs. Scamander…” he rumbled.  “Because I plan to make good use of that muffling charm in the coming months…”

Wade could interest her in a lot more than a sarcastic comment, if she was being honest.  And Darcy had half a mind to tell him so.  

Except there was that pesky little thing called anxiety.  

“Hey listen…something tells me this is going to get fixed soon…” Wade said in a loud whisper from where he was leaning over on the opposite side of the elevator.  “So if you were gonna make a move or something, now would be the time.”  

Darcy swallowed her nerves and went for it.  She closed the distance between them and reached for his mask, pulling it up to expose his mouth as she slotted her lips over his.  

There was a short, muffled sound of surprise coming from Wade, so she broke off the kiss so she could hear him.  “What?” she asked, her voice a little croaky just from kissing him.  

“I said…’Not that I’m complaining in the slightest, but I didn’t think you’d take me seriously…”  

She arched an eyebrow.  “That cannot be what you said…”  

“It wasn’t, but I thought it sounded better than ‘UnHhH…’,” he said with a slight shrug.
