    Summary

    Out of sheer taciturnity the ceiling listens
    to the fall of the ancient leafless rain,
    to feathers, to whatever the night imprisoned;
    so I wait for you like a lonely house
    till you will see me again and live in me.
    Till then my windows ache.

    -Pablo Neruda, Sonnet LXV

    Summary

    "You can't just wave a hand over the trouble you caused and try to use that as-as proof you were in the right!" Tony shouts frantically. Everyone in the room stops. "That's not how consequences work-- you decided you knew better, and then they decided you knew better, too! And you know who got stuck with that mess you left behind?" Tony laughs, and spreads his arms open to motion at the people behind him, on their feet, some with their hands on Tony, trying to calm him. "The Avengers, that's who."

    Steve doesn't answer. Instead, he looks at the tightened lips of those that followed him, and thinks back to where it all went wrong. Maybe when even Natasha looked at him the way they used to look at the Hulk-- like something that couldn't be stopped. Maybe when Zola laughed at him from his immortal illusion. Maybe when he took a look at that first folder, their first mission. "I may have made a few mistakes," Steve concedes, shoulders pulling back as he meets Tony's eyes, "but no more running. No more lies, no more secrets. We're here to fight this--together."
