    Summary

    At the Order's third clandestine meeting, Dumbledore pulled Severus aside. Severus kept to the edges in these meetings, anyway, so Lily didn't even notice him go.

    Out in the cold side alley, Dumbledore put his hands in the pockets of his robes and watched Severus slowly. Severus felt weighed. After a long moment he lifted his chin and looked back.

    "Severus," said Dumbledore. "I am going to ask something difficult of you. It would mean not coming to meetings anymore. It would mean... a lot of things." In the decades they would fight this long, quiet war together, Severus would come to know Albus Dumbledore better than most. He would see him tired, see where his enigmas faded into exhausted despair. He would come to know that this hesitancy was something the headmaster would grow out of-- one day, when asking children to give their lives for the cause, there would be no stumble to this man's voice.

    Summary

    [Post IM3 & CA2]

    It starts out as a joke.

    Rhodey takes one look at Tony and Harley tinkering with and squabbling over some piece of tech and demands, “Since when do you have a kid?” and Harley glances up and says casually, without missing a beat, “He impregnated my mom eleven years ago and then left her to raise me alone. He’s a terrible person.”

    Tony’s going to be laughing about Rhodey’s expression for MONTHS.

    Summary

    It’s a fundamental constant, that Tony Stark is a billionaire and a genius and philanthropist and we’ve heard this time and time again over the movies. Nobody in canon seems to appreciate just how much of a bullet they dodged, though [not so much a bullet as a Jericho missile]- that Tony, being Tony, focused on a better, brighter future, and not, you know, world domination. [It would have been so easy, at any point.]

    But then again, there’s so many times when Tony Stark could have thrown in the towel and made the world a far worse place, long before the good Captain even got defrosted- and even more so after.

    [Even if heroism is as integral as genius is to his character, it's still a fun thought exercise.]

    Summary

    Rhodey shakes his head at Tony, “that is one pissed off kitsune,” he says.

    Tony nods as the fox in the crate glares at them with more intelligence than an animal should have. “Yeah, Happy caught it and thought it was cool because it has five tails,” he says. How the hell Happy managed to catch a mythological creature that was rather known for being mischievous and hard to catch Tony had no idea. Either way he was now the proud, uh, acquaintance of a kitsune.

    Rhodey frowns at him, “Happy caught a kitsune? How the hell did he manage that?” he asks.
