    Summary

    Robb threw his freshly re-awoken body into the stream and laid there, staring upwards, his mind swimming with images of his dead wife, Talisa, and their dead, unborn child within her. He saw his mother, pleading with Walder Frey in that awful, heartbroken voice of hers, and he saw himself, lost, lost, lost. He felt like he could once more hear the screams of his fellow bannermen and soldiers outside, being slaughtered because of his mistakes. What exactly was his purpose now? Was it only revenge? Or was it something else, something more? "You Starks are hard to kill," Jon had said to him once.

    The resurrection of a lost king crashes upon Westeros in waves.

    Summary

    Iron Man, an Avenger, had stumbled inside the Emergency Room just a moment ago, his suit gleaming wet in the harsh neon-lights. In his arms, he was holding the teenager New York – and the world – had come to identify as the 'Queens Orphan'. It looked as if he was sleeping, cradled securely in Iron Man's grip like a child.
    But there was too much blood for that to be the case.

     

    After their return to New York and with the adoption still pending, Tony struggles with the boundaries of being a legal guardian while Peter fears that moving to Manhattan means he is losing his connection to Queens and his life there. When Peter's danger-sense starts acting up in the face of an unknown threat and an unexpected visitor drops by with news from Steve, the simmering conflict comes to a head, forcing both Peter and Tony to admit some things they'd rather kept to themselves.
    Like the fact that Tony didn't tell Peter the entire truth about Germany.
    Or the reason Peter sometimes wakes up crying and terrified of the dark.
