    Summary

    This is how the world actually works: instead of leading soldiers into battle, Shang is given command over a disorganized bunch of conscripted civilians who don't know the business end of a sword. Instead of fighting to defend China, he is stuck training these misfits into something resembling soldiers. And instead of being devoted to a wife or his job as a soldier, he is becoming attracted to one of his men.

    Summary

    There’s a funeral planned for Natasha, for after Steve’s done returning the Infinity Stones.

    They don’t have a body to bury but they’ll gather, anyways. They can stand around and tell stories, spill Asgardian ale in her honor, and let Okoye lead them in a Wakandan mourning chant.

    That’s the plan but Steve, Steve doesn’t want any part of it.

    If he has his way, there won’t be any need for a funeral at all.

    Summary

    Natasha lands, in dust and sand and light, in the middle of a great landscape of nothingness. She sits up, and touches one hand to the back of her head, and it comes away wet and sticky with blood.

    There’s copper in the back of her mouth, and she spits it out into the sand, watching with satisfaction as the blood splatters into the otherwise pristine surface.

    “Huh,” Natasha says. “So this is death.”
