    Summary

    Alec plays the piano every day, with great talent. One night, a note slips under his door: it's a request from an anonymous neighbor. Before he knows it, Alec picks up the habit of leaving his window open so his neighbor can listen to him. Requests keep coming. Slowly, two strangers start a conversation without words and let the music do the work for them.

    Summary

    "Undines are creatures of the fresh water,” she said, in the end. “Guardians of springs, and streams, and all that they feed in turn. They are fair, and strong, immortal and invulnerable to all which might hurt us, but they are born longing for just one thing, one thing that they may never find alone – which is a shame, for they are destined to be alone, unless they can find someone who can love them despite their strangeness."

    In which Bard finds a creature in the forest in the dead of winter, and both of them learn to let go of their fears.

    Summary

    Yes, Clint is avoiding the other Avengers. No, he does not want to go back to New York. But then again, he didn't exactly want to be kidnapped by the Winter Soldier either. Really, he just wants to go back to bed.
