    Summary

    Six months after Natasha joins SHIELD, they give her a key to an apartment. Natasha gives it back, because she has a room on base, and why would she want to move out?

    Apparently, that was not the response the psychologist was looking for.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "JARVIS, pull up Revenge is A Dish Best Served At Zero Degrees Kelvin," she instructs.

    JARVIS displays maps, intel, photographs— information even SHIELD doesn't have on Senator Stern.

    Clint leans over his bowl full of Lucky Charms to get a better look at the map hovering above his head.

    "Wow, that's the inside of his house," Clint remarks. "Remind me to never get on your bad side."

    Steve had been sketching while the TV was on. He puts down his sketchbook and pencil, and comes over to look at what everyone is making a fuss about.

    "That's an evasion of privacy, Toni," Steve scolds.

    "He's a pedophile, he deserves it," Toni snaps back, arms crossing over her chest.

    Natasha sees a light at the long end of a tunnel, like a telescope trained on the trauma of Toni's life.

    This.

    This.

    "How old were you?" Natasha asks.

    "Eleven," she says. "Howard dropped me off, said 'spit, don't swallow', and that was that. You?"

    "Nine," Natasha replies.

    Steve takes longer to catch on. His face drains of color, and then reddens.

    "Howard wouldn't do that! Stop lying!" he snaps.

    Toni's face turns angry and predatory. She flicks her hand at the mess of documents, and one comes forward.

    "I, Howard Stark, consent to Senator Rupert Stern, having sexual intercourse with my underage daughter—"

    "You're lying! Howard would never sign something like that! He must have been tricked!" Steve shouts, and moves towards Toni, maybe to shake the nonsense out of her.

    Bruce grabs Steve just in time, arm wrapped over his chest. Bruce flexes muscles no one knew he had, and Steve is stopped just inches from Toni.

    Toni doesn't flinch. She is small and defiant, teeth gritted and chin knocked up.

    Bruce bends down to murmur in Steve' ear. "Ease up, Steve, come on. Is this really worth a fight over?"

    Bruce talks Steve down, and leads him away.

    Toni turns to Clint, who's looking down at the granite counter top, tapping his spoon against it.

    But Clint speaks before Toni can.

    "You don't need to ask me," he says, "I believe you."

    Toni stares at him, surprised.

    Clint gestures to the purple hearing aid in his ear. "My dad, a baseball bat," he tells her. "Social worker knew about the abuse and still didn't remove us. I ran away— but I know not everyone can."

    Toni sniffs and turns away, because for some reason there's water in her eyes.

    "Thanks," she whispers.

    Clint, with excruciating gentleness, pats Toni on the shoulder. "We'll get Steve straightened out."

    He takes off after Steve and Bruce.

    This leaves Toni and Natasha.

    They stare at each.

    Two women, hearts like pinned butterflies.

    Their wings tattered and tortured— yet in spite of this, yearning to break to free and fly once more.

     

     

     

    Toni grins like the menace she is, because she got to have Natasha for years, without anyone else to tarnish it.

    "Surprise, bitches," she cackles, "You weren't invited to wedding."

    She launches up and strides out like the queen she knows she is.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The cold somehow reminds her of Rhodey, her poor Rhodey who was probably never going to run again, he was never going to chase her again for the last bag of Doritos around the house, she closes her eyes pushing the thought away, Rhodey was going to be fine, more than fine, she was Natasha Edith Stark, she was going to make sure of it.

    The video breaks her, the fact that Steve, no, Rogers knew that Barnes had killed her parents, her mother ends up shattering her broken remains and she lashes out in fury, in pain. She wants Barnes to hurt, the man killed her mother, fury blinds her actions until she ends up on her back with Rogers hovering over her, his shield up to finish her off.
    She has nightmares of that moment on repeat for months; they all start the same. She and Rogers having a good time with each other, everything is sweet everything is nice, until he has her on her back, his eyes sharpen and somehow he is slamming the shield down on her. But she heals, Starks are made of steel, she puts herself back together, she mentors the Spiderling, adopts Harley and his little sister when their mother passes and somehow builds herself a small family. Natasha Edith Stark ends up with eight children, Vision, Friday, U, Dum-E, Butterfingers, Peter Parker and Harley and Stella Stark; two brothers Harold Hogan and James Rhodes and a sister Virginia Potts.

    The media had ceased to be a pain in her ass when Friday had dropped the videos of Siberia and Johannesburg on the internet, they now hailed her as a tragic hero and wanted the blood of those who had dare hurt her, see Steve and Wanda, mostly. She had come out of it as America's Prodigal Daughter and while her legal team and Pepper where managing the media it kind of bothered her a bit, but she had long since learned to work with what life offered.

    A year after Siberia, Natasha Stark had a family that loved her, friends that stood by her a boyfriend that was odd yet cute in a strange way, a company that thrived in ways that her father couldn't have imagined, and her life back completely. Natasha Stark was the healthiest she had ever been in her life, both mentally and physically. And she could deal with her problems now, or with that particular problem now.

    "It always comes down to your dear Bucky doesn't it?" She asked and spoke before he could answer "I had just seen as he killed my parents in cold blood, do you know how many years I spent blaming Howard for that day? Did you ever thought about my reaction upon watching that video? You could have told me and maybe Siberia would have gone differently, why is it that Wanda is allowed to hate me because a bomb that was sold in the black market that had my name on it killed her parents but I am not allowed to hate the man that I did see kill my parents? What makes her different?"

    Summary

    Peter Quill could happily say that he had it good in life. He's got a team, he's got a ship, he's considered to be a hero throughout the Galaxy and he could get any babe he wanted.

    It wasn't until a certain someone caught his eye that he thought that maybe he didn't have everything he could ever wont. But he was sure as hell going to try!
