    Summary

    When the worst case scenario is just the beginning of the fall, when you can lose all you loved and still keep losing more, when all you thought you'd be has become a mockery, when you have hit the rocky bottom, that is where, sometimes, you can find the strength to triumph at last.

    Summary

    Again, as before, it falls to Steve to pick Bucky up, and carry him out of danger, even if half his heart is still rattling out in pieces on the floor behind him. Steve Rogers just doesn't know how to stay down, even when he desperately wishes he could. But someone has to see to the details, take care of the wounded, sweep the debris, and put the chairs up on the tables before he limps away from the battlefield.

    Summary

    New guys almost always meant trouble for Steve; either coming in fighting-scared and looking for the quickest way to prove they were too tough to take on, in which case they take one look at Steve and figure he was small enough to take on without much risk; or else coming in ready to make a deal with the best protection they could buy with their limited means, in which case any one of the gang leaders they approached was likely to sic him on Steve just for shits and giggles, and maybe a tiny bit of revenge if the new guy got lucky.

    Summary

    Natasha is, as usual, the first to realize that things are probably not as they seem, probably not under control, and probably not going to go the Avengers' way. She might not know precisely what to do about it, but one thing's certain -- her new-forged pack has given her one hell of a motivation to stand and fight for what's hers.

    Summary

    A weak man knows the value of strength. A guilty man knows the value of forgiveness.

    Steve finds Bucky dredging the shadows of his past late one night, and rattling the bones of long-dead ghosts while Tony sleeps, unawares. But this time the terrible confession Bucky has to make isn't the one he's been braced to hear -- it's actually worse.

    Summary

    "Enough!" The doctor snapped, no trace of chummy comfort left in his voice as he shoved the hypospray at another of the nurses. "We have orders! MPs, get topside, now. Hooper, get another fifty of Xyladine into the Captain. Dacy and Roccio, prep the gurney. Seames, wipe your goddamned face off and prep for blood draw."

    "But Major, the muster-"

    Steve felt the cuff on his right arm begin to tear, blood slicking his wrist against the metal's bite.
    The doctor rounded on his aide, teeth bared. "Did. I. Stutter?"

    Another one tried, "Sir, the alphas will need-"

    "The alphas will fight, Corporal," The doctor snatched the hypospray back. "Rut haze or no, they'll fight. That's what we keep them around for, now get that man unconscious, or I will-"

    How so? You have seen Mainframes, yes?

    No, older. Like the Space program, or the German rockets.

    I see. And this machine. Tell me what it is for.

    I... I think it is where I will be killed.

    Summary

    "He's out of it now," she said without preamble -- a sudden shadow at his bedside in a dress the color of spring. If he closed his eyes and drew his breath carefully over his tongue, Steve imagined he could still taste the faint trace of winter clinging to her skin like perfume. "Chem is analyzing the gas that triggered his regression, and Fury has Stark working on a kill switch for the arm until they've figured out how to block the gas's effect."

    "Good," Steve sighed, and opened his one good eye and summoned a smile. "Is he all right?"

    She gave a smile that was nothing like happy, and shook her head minutely. "He forgot himself in the middle of a mission and tried to kill his best friend. Would you be all right?"
