    Summary

    When Petunia Dursley refused to take Harry in she forfeited his birthright protection, so Dumbledore took the baby to the safest place he knew: Hogwarts.

    The applicable staff (mostly just… not Snape) took Harry in on a rotating schedule as he grew from baby to toddler to child. They traded extra credit for babysitting among the older students, and Harry grew up knowing a few dozen different laps that were safe and warm to nap in.

    This was a Harry who grew up among books, among old transient walls and learned professors. They gave Binns night duty sometimes, and let him talk young Harry to sleep. This was a Harry whose world changed, on principle, daily. The stairs moved. The walls became doors. You had to keep your eyes open–you had to pay attention. So he did.

    He grew up in a school. Knowledge was power, but knowledge was also joy. This was his sanctuary. There was magic in his world from birth.

    Summary

    “Compromise where you can. And where you can’t, don’t. Even if everyone is telling you that something wrong is something right, even if the whole world is telling you to move. It is your duty to plant yourself like a tree, look them in the eye and say, no. You move.“

    The thought never crossed Steve’s mind that maybe the entire world was standing in your way, because you were the one trying to do it wrong. Steve hadn’t had the time to listen. First stopping the accords form happening, saving Bucky and then getting his friends out of the claws of a government which thought itself almighty. It was only a few days after the events of Siberia that Steve couldn’t ignore the rest of the world anymore. The people his team had been fighting for had something to say and they demanded their voice being heard. They were telling him to move.

    Summary

    Revenge is an act of passion; vengeance of justice. Injuries are revenged; crimes are avenged. ~Samuel Johnson

    In the aftermath of the Civil War, Tony is angry. And as the Ten Rings found out, you don't want Tony angry with you. The Hulk might be more obvious in terms of anger but Tony is far more creative.

    Note: This fic is currently marked as Gen but that's just because I haven't decided what my pairing is going to be.
