    Summary

    You need to stop the bleeding or we’re going to die.

    He sat still and quiet in the abandoned warehouse, hiding from them.

    James was telling him something speaking, pushing forward. He grunted trying to focus on the voice in his head.

    “What?” He rasped aloud.

    He was tired, sluggish, he just wanted to sleep.

    No, come on now, not yet. We need to get the bleeding stopped.

    He wanted to balk but the voice wouldn’t be stopped. It pushed and prodded talking him through it until he’d had his side bound up and the bleeding contained.

    Well done.

    He felt a warmth at the praise, the voice…James…he cared.

    “Yasha, call me Yasha.”

    Summary

    Steve has to go into therapy on Tuesday, smiley as can be, and Dr. Rosen reads him a little too well.

    “Leave any post-coital joy at the door,” she says, clicking her pen against her notepad. “We’re here to unpack trauma, not dote over pretty billionaires.”

    “So, you agree,” Steve says, repeating a line from a movie Natasha and Clint have forced him to watch, “You think he’s pretty.”

    “And he’s quoting Mean Girls,” Rosen throws her hands into the air. “Will I ever get my angsty Captain Rogers back?”

    “No can do, Doc,” Steve grins from ear-to-ear. “Haven’t you heard the news? I’ve got a boyfriend.”

     

    in which people get therapy, polyamory is negotiated, and trauma is dealt with. also, tony and steve act like parental figures to everyone.

    Summary

    The Avengers have been temporarily- is five years still temporary?- disbanded in favor of them becoming human-like again. War turns people into machines. That is not what any of them want. So, Peter, and Sam, and Bucky, and Carol, and T’Challa, and Brunnhilde all work independently on what they need to do. But there is no fighting team.

    There is a living team, though. A family, in other words.

    It’s nice. Tony, Pepper, and Morgan live in their lakehouse. Peter and Harley live on the other side of the lake.

    Summary

    or; five times tony proves he’s capable as a father and one time peter proves he’s a good kid, thank you very much

    ———

    He always wants the place to look good when the kid is over. The Compound is big and white and echoing and lonely with just him and Pepper living here full time, Natasha visiting when she isn’t babysitting the illegal Captains America and checking in on Frozone, and Rhodey only here when he’s not prepping himself to be the next goddamn president of the United States. He likes it when the kid stays, he looks forward to it, and wants him to see it as a place to be comfortable, at the very least. He sleeps there two nights a week, anyway—more if he’s been stabbed or tased or something else stupid as shit and needs to be observed overnight in the medbay. It ought to be some semblance of a home.

    Summary

    “Hey,” Barnes says. “Howsabout I teach ya’ how to control your strength with that arm? So you don’t rip any more handles off doors.”

    Tony thinks his brain spasms in his skull, full short-circuit, he worries they’ll have to turn him off and then on again. It’s not that Barnes isn’t nice, because every day since they properly met he’s been nothing but a gentleman to every person around. Tony just doesn’t know how to accept this. It’s too fast, he’s just— let himself be in Barnes’s presence without losing his shit and now Tony’s supposed to accept a favor from him?

    He also doesn’t know how to admit the fact that Pepper has been helping him with everything- from working him into his shirts to brushing his hair- while he figures out how to balance the power of the arm with his tendency to be far too impulsive, to pull things too close, too fast.

    “C’mon,” Barnes says, nudging Tony in the ribs with an elbow. “We can be metal arm bros.”

    Tony would have to be a heartless bastard to say no to that.

    “Fine,” he says, and he sniffs a little, but he’s also got a grin tweaking the scarred corner of his lip, so it evens out. “Fine, teach me, oh great master.”

    Barnes grins.
