    Summary

    After Harry blows up Aunt Marge, Dumbledore decides it's not safe for Harry to spend the rest of the summer at the Leaky Cauldron, and instead sends him to stay at Spinner’s End with Professor Snape.

    It's tense, awkward, and teeming with misunderstandings...but it might be the best thing that's happened to either of them. They're both been without a family for a very long time.

    Summary

    The night Tony dies, Steve dreams of him. He dreams of all of them. Everyone’s alive—and happy.

    “It’s great, isn’t it?” Tony says, and puts his arm around Steve’s waist a lot like a lover would, his body forming a firm, warm line along Steve’s side that he can’t help leaning into. “We could’ve had that, if we’d played our cards right.”

    “It’s true,” Natasha says.
    ----

    Steve dreams Tony and Natasha give him a chance to replay the hand they were dealt, and a roadmap to help him do it right.

    He hopes it wasn't just a dream.

    Summary

    Didn’t notice. Right. Sure. Two brilliant minds, two super spies, and a god didn’t notice when the chattiest man they knew stopped making sound. They just seemed happier than before. Brighter and more cheerful than before. They just seemed like they were more comfortable with him around when he was stone silent.

    Fuck it.

    He knew they noticed.

    And he knew they liked him better this way.

    Summary

    Tony and Bucky aren't on the best of terms, but they're working on it. Bucky tries (and fails) not to be irritated at Tony for being whiny and dramatic about the cold that he and the other human Avengers have come down with, but things go south when they find themselves suddenly captured, just the two of them, in a prison cell, Bucky with no metal arm and Stark with no arc reactor. Even under such extreme circumstances, it's impossible, maybe even more so than normal, for them to get along. If they could just cooperate for a minute; if they hadn't been too busy arguing to avoid capture; if Tony could just stop whining for long enough to think of a plan—they could be out of here in no time.

    Until it turns out that Tony's got what looks to be pneumonia.

    Maybe it wasn't all Stark's fault. If they'd just let him stay behind when he'd asked; if Bucky could just remember how to take care of another person; if only someone knew where they were—they wouldn't be in here in the first place. Now, it's a race against the clock to escape and it's up to Bucky to win for both of them.

    Summary

    Tony Stark is dead.

    Or, at least, that's what the world believes - that the great Iron Man was killed by Captain America in the Civil War. But if there's anything Tony Stark has proven over the years, it's that he's difficult to kill. And if there's anything Steve Rogers has proven over the years, it's that he's not a murderer.
