    Summary

    The aftermath of a mission isn't usually like this.

    But then, this was no usual mission.

    The others are lost in their remembered worlds, repressing like talented amateurs, and it’s painful to watch. Bruce is no great actor, but he has eaten repression for so long now that it’s effortless; no-one can see how galling it tastes to him. These people, though. They can’t hide it from him, not him. He’s a professional.

    Summary

    There was something inexplicably sexy about being trapped a hairbreadth away from Matt Murdock's lips. I mean, just the sight of him. I almost didn't want him to kiss me because this distance, this wait, was so excruciatingly sweet and painful that it made my stomach contract, butterflies be damned. This, right here, this was my something stupid and Jesus, I was just going to have to make it stupid enough. I wanted this to shine brightest when my time came.

    Summary

    She spread her arms above her head, letting him run his hands from the tips of her fingers down to the gently sloping arch of her back until she could feel him leaning in close again. A finger brushing her hair back from where it had fallen loose, like a veil around her face.
    "Forgive me father, for I have sinned."
    His voice was barely even a whisper, but her breath caught as it resonated through her, a wicked smile cutting open his cheeks.

    Summary

    Matt didn't bother acknowledging the guest when he heard the door close quietly. Most people assumed his new blindness took his intelligence and probably his hearing, too. Whatever.

    "You awake?" Danny. He sat up but the sudden movement sent a flurry of vertigo through his over-full head. Danny's thin arms circled his chest, pinning his arms at his sides. "Sorry I couldn't come sooner. Don't move too much, the nurses are like, super-strict."

    "Hey," Matt said, finally finding his voice. "Thanks for coming." He didn't think anyone would come.

    "Luke and Jess are idiots but I'm - you're my friend, like, forever."

    Matt shuddered. "Me, too."
