    Summary

    “You’ve got war in your heart boy,” Howard sneers, “don’t ever try and pretend to be anything but what you are.”

    Tony feels the familiar burn of a flower mark being etched into his skin but he doesn’t look, doesn’t try and check to see what it is. Instead he keeps his eyes on Howard and his hands cupped around his bleeding mouth and nose.

    Summary

    The pain is all-encompassing. It’s all he can think about. It’s all he feels. It’s all he breathes. It’s all he lives. Like a barbed net, its sharpness swallows him whole, over and over and over. Tony’s mind tries to hide, tries to save itself, but the pain finds him even then. It burns away at his resistance until all he is crumbles, until he’s nothing but ash and dust.

    Summary

    Kintsugi (golden joinery)
    -defined as "to repair with gold", it is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. As a philosophy it treats breakage and repair as part of the history of an object, rather than something to disguise- not allowing its service to end at the time of breakage when it could come back more beautiful than ever.
     

    The cellphone still waited for him when he returned. It's still there, on his table, mocking him, laughing at him, relishing in the way he flinched from it. He picked up the phone and dashed it to the ground, stomping on it again and again until it was nothing again and Tony could breathe.

    He opened a drawer and pulled out the bundle of photographs he'd taken from the mansion. He held it in his hands like a lifeline and said, "I'm going to prove to you I can be good," he put them in his pocket. "I will not fuck this up."

    A little voice in his head told him that was all he did, but Tony boxed him away. He was in charge now. He was going to evolve.

    Summary

    Iron Man has stolen the Infinity Gauntlet, and Steve wants to know why. As the Avengers track his movements, and his behavior continues to get more erratic, Steve begins realize that there is more to this than Iron Man is willing to let on. Captain America and Iron Man have history, and in all that time Steve has never truly seen him as the supervillain SHIELD branded him – until now.

    Basic knowledge of the incursion story arc is helpful to follow along, but the story deviates enough that it’s not necessary.
