    Summary

    When Nicholas Fury calls, Tony Stark of Marvel believes he’s getting a fine deal for once. Two months of rest in exchange for finding a cube is nothing compared to his many dangerous adventures. However, it is never quite as simple as that, and the addition of Steve Rogers only complicates the matter. Both in task and heart.

    Summary

    "It's tough being a cop past the age of forty. Your body can still take it, but your mind begins to go. Your seventh murdered family, your eighteenth double homicide, your twenty-sixth mob hit... You grow numb, it all becomes the same. You begin not only to fail in your duty; you fail the victims. "The right time to stop", old Telkar surmised before he did exactly that and left the force. It never got that far for me – that seventh family was my last.

    We were first on the scene, Orgrim and I. An entire family massacred in cold blood: the work of a madman. It took us all of five minutes to find traces of fel magic. Five more tied them to me. The evidence was overwhelmingly unequivocal. I hadn't done it, but no one believed that, not even Orgrim. You see, I have my past against me and my word isn't all it used to be. But I'll tell you this: I didn't murder that family. I have not been near the demon blood in twenty years. I was set up."

    Summary

    "Are you just going to drink? There is a lot to be done."
    Cas's annoyed voice snapping Dean out of his drunken haze.
    "Like wha?"
    Dean slurred, taking another swig of Johnnie Walker, feeling it's pleasant burn down his throat. He didn't look up at Cas, he couldn't.
    [[Takes place after 'Brother's keeper'. The universe is similar to the end!verse...kinda?]]
