    Summary

    aka The SHIELD Hypothesis

    Maria Hill is the Assistant Director of SHIELD, a high-flying member of a high-flying covert agency, whose friends and colleagues could, and often did take off, into flight. But while most of them come from similar, if exceptional, military backgrounds, not all of them have the same story. This story is about Maria Hill, her history, and the price you have to pay for finding acceptance, when you belong to a high-flying, high-risk super secret organisation like SHIELD.

    Tony Stark's not wrong, entirely. You do have to be a certain type of messed up, to find a home in SHIELD, or any similar intelligence agency. Normal people did not thrive in places where sex-change forms were a normal thing and re-writing Wills was a monthly business. Maria Hill always thought she was the exception. She always thought she was pretty normal, compared to the rest of the lot. She wasn't. But while Stark wasn't wrong, he wasn't exactly right, either. SHIELD is like the ocean; what it taketh away, it often giveth back, with upgrades.

    Summary

    "Hierarchical triple systems comprise a close binary and a more distant component." - www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov

    ---

    Darcy’s been cagey in regards to the whole 'bi' topic, because it’s complicated. Or, okay, people think it’s complicated, but it really isn't and she doesn't want to handle the barrage of inevitable questions.

    Especially not from Jane, who asks questions like it’s her job (which it kinda is) and might cotton on to the fact that Darcy thinks she’s hot. Like, 'Jodie Foster in Contact' hot, except without the interstellar daddy issues.

    (Later, Darcy will remember this thought and laugh and laugh. And maybe also want to cry.)

    Summary

    "One day Bucky, you and Nat are going to stop trying to set me up." Steve says, sweat soaked from what has to be at least a full 90 minutes on the treadmill. It's a shit grey and rainy day outside and neither Steve or Bucky are really up to running out there. They've had enough mud for a lifetime, they'd rather avoid it if they can.

    They can, of course, because Stark has a heart of gold and pockets to match.

    In which Susan identifies "Where's My Cow" as a proto-talismanic anchor for Young Sam's continued health and existence, and tries very hard not to wonder what the Vimes' butler does on his day off. There may also be a lesson about the meaning of Hogswatch, but no one wants to talk about that.
