    Summary

    Steve is unused to interacting with Omegas in the 21st century and makes a forgivable blunder. Tony and JARVIS shouldn't overreact so much.

    Summary

    Occhiolism, n. the awareness of the smallness of your perspective.

    Every night, Tony found himself going to the rooftop, bringing his knees close to his chest, and gazing upwards. Up toward the army, still closing in on this tiny planet he called home. It glowed dusty orange in the night sky, the city lights burning out in the darkness. If Tony squinted hard, he could almost make out the individual ships. It almost looked like stars. Stars that would approach and quickly extinguish everything he knew.

    It’s funny how imminent death and destruction can really put things in perspective.

    Summary

    It is exceedingly difficult to destroy a complex system which iterates from very simple principles. If even one small part of the system remains, it can rebuild itself.

    After Civil War, Tony is struggling with heading up the team and dealing with the emotional fallout of being betrayed by those closest to him. Luckily, an old friend is back to help protect Tony and ensure he comes to no harm.

    A Jarvis lives AU.

    Summary

    Tony can't get himself back from Siberia, and it takes the night for him to be rescued. While waiting to see if he'll die of hypothermia, he realises something for the first time. It wasn't that he failed because he hadn't tried hard enough. He had failed because he had tried too hard. His so-called team-mates had formed the habit of blaming Tony for everything because he had let them. He had shouldered the blame, let them attack him without consequence, and cleaned up after their mess, all so they could continue to feel self-righteous in peace. But it wasn't just him they were attacking, and saving the world didn't give them a free pass to be the very bullies that Steve claimed to fight against.

    Tony woke up in hospital, still sustained by the relief of his realisation. Things sucked, but they would get better. He was Tony Stark, and no challenge was too much for him. It was odd how much easier it was to plot when he actually did intend ways to manipulate the ex-Avengers into falling in line. And since that was what they seemed convinced he was doing all along, they didn't deserve a warning that it would now be true.

    Summary

    /Old man/Tony thinks, resigned. /This could be my sea. Space, the final frontier./

    Steve thinks as hard as he can: come home.

    /Not like anyone's waiting for me back on earth, anyways./

    Steve puts his fist through a wall.

    [alternately: Tony wanders through space while Steve and Bucky listen to his thoughts]
