    Summary

    Or: In Which Darcy Has One Soulmark And Many Soulmates


    “I always give my dinosaurs to people who say my Words, even when I don’t say theirs back. It’s sort of a tradition. This one is named Emma.”

    “Emma? Like Emma Watson?”

    “No, like Emma Woodhouse, the Austen heroine.”

    Clint paused for a long moment, and when he spoke, there was an odd note in his voice. “The Gwyneth Paltrow one? With the bow and arrow?”

    Summary

    The doctor pulled out the teacher's chair and sat across from Steve, his hands folded and his face solemn and kindly. "It happens once in a while," he said. His voice was soft and gentle, and irrationally, it made Steve angry. Such ugly news ought to be delivered in a more fitting tone. "The most likely cause is that your intended mate died before you were born or shortly after they were born, before the bond had time to fully form. It's called a Type C or a Type--"

    Steve wasn't interested in the terminology. "Is that why I'm... like this?" He gestured down at his frail, sickly body.

    "Probably," the doctor said. "There are some further tests we can give you, down at the hospital, to determine--"

    "Why bother?" Steve growled, slumping back in his chair and crossing his arms. "My mate is dead and no one else is going to want me, not like this." Tears stung his eyes and he blinked them back furiously.

    "It's also possible, though less likely, that you're a Type A -- firstborn of the pairing -- but that your mate has simply not yet been born," the doctor said.

    Summary

    Phil is tired. Phil is stupid. Or, he’s stupid because he’s tired, or he’s tired because he’s stupid, and he’s not really sure which one it is anymore.

    He doesn’t remember anymore when he started counting small luxuries in terms of meals. The food bank has meat sometimes, but he can’t cook it, so he leaves it for the mothers at the food pantry that glare at him because he doesn’t look homeless, doesn’t look like someone who should be trespassing in their aisles filled with boxes of Kraft mac and cheese and chicken broth and if they’re lucky, a box or two of fancy risotto or rice pilaf. He doesn’t know how to tell them that they don’t look homeless either, that they look nice, and clean, and perfectly employable - just like he does.

    The one where for once, Clint Barton gets to be the guardian angel.
