    Summary

    Matías likes getting to the office early. Always has. He figured out in university that his day just worked better if he rolled out of bed, stumbled through dressing, a breakfast bar and his first coffee, got dressed for whatever the day held, and then finished the mental work of waking up over his second coffee wherever he was meant to start his day - or at least nearby. It meant his brain got right into gear.

    So he's at the Tower by around seven-thirty, and gets his second coffee of the day from Dandelion and Driftwood.

    Summary

    But it's Eva who asks, in the oblique-casual tone that knows damn well it's fooling nobody but is going to keep the act up anyway, because that sends its own message, "Are you aware of what Captain Rogers is doing?"

    Maria looks at her and then closes her eyes. Takes a deep breath. And says, "Jesus Christ that's the most terrifying fucking question I've been asked in years."

    Summary

    "Stark," Sam says. Gives in and says.

    It's funny: when Tony Stark turns around, for just a split second he looks like he's panicked. Like Sam caught him doing something wrong, somehow, except he's not even sure what it would be. It's faint, it's gone in seconds, but Sam's been doing his job for a while now and he's good at catching those tiny flashes from men who tend to be past masters of hiding what they feel, even from themselves.

    He thinks about a talk he and Laura had about developmental ages versus years lived and wonders where she'd peg Tony Stark, if she knew him. Teenager? Younger?

    Stark doesn't actually answer in words, just uses his face and his whole posture and stance to say, yeah, what? It's pretty adept, actually: be really easy for that to come off irritable or dismissive or anxious, especially without words or tone of voice to point you the right way, but Stark manages to communicate something totally different. A kind of weightless curiosity, like sure, he wants to know what you want, but he's not fussed about it.

    [...]

    "Why," [Sam] asks, slowly and carefully, "are you so god-damned certain Steve's not at risk?"

    Summary

    "No offense meant, but I'm not up for games, Pepper - what do you want?"

    Pepper startles Maria by being just as blunt - not that Pepper plays around much, but she's usually one for observing basic social niceties and putting the kind of lead-up to a conversation that means you more or less know where things are going. Apparently not right now. She just takes her cue from Maria instead.

    "I want you to sign this," she says, as Eva takes a folder out of her bag and leans over to place the SI-stationery file she takes out of that in front of Maria on the table, "I want you to take the job I'm offering you, and I want you to sort out the absolute fucking rats'-nest of a mess in the security and personnel end of my company. I want to make goddamn sure that nobody ever manages to do what they did on Insight Day again."

    Summary

    He kisses the back of Bucky's head and asks, "You okay here or you wanna move - ?" because it's easier for Bucky to answer if there's two options, if it isn't yes-or-no. If it's not accepting vs refusing. When there's two it's more . . . it's more there's a scenario and options for dealing with it, and Bucky's brain can handle that better. That was something he did. That makes it parameters that are safe.

    And this time before Steve's even quite finished the question Bucky's saying, "Fuck Steve I do not want to move," like the idea's almost so overwhelming and unwanted it's hard to think about.
