    Summary

    And if Bucky's not surprised to hear Steve come around and into the kitchen, or startled to feel Steve's hand touch his shoulder, he's not expecting the follow-up to that to be Steve's arms wrapping tightly around his waist, hands working under his shirt to touch skin, or Steve's face buried in the crook of his neck, with Steve breathing like someone hauled out of deep water.

Although Sam's phone might beat him to it: he feels like Siri's getting annoyed at him already. Doesn't matter. He can do this all day.

    Summary

    He can smell the room. He can smell the fires, streets away, he can smell the dust from shattered stone, the dead, the smells of the house, food, the humidity in the air and the faecal smell of the dead body of the child on the floor, mixed with the blood-iron from her slashed throat.

    Summary

    "I think I need to go back Stateside," Natasha says, in English, dropping her hand to her knee. Clint watches her fingers dig in, just a little, denting the faux-satin pjs she's wearing. "He doesn't . . .know what he's doing. He doesn't understand. I - it's not surprising," she says, with a sigh. "But Barnes came to him - "

    "So if he doesn't figure it the fuck out," Clint finishes for her, "he's going to get himself killed." And she nods.

    Summary

    "Do I need to sit up for this?" he asks, and she's struck for a second just the way that the question is his, sounds just like himself, and should sound stupid or thoughtless or something, and doesn't - because he knows exactly what she is, because he knows exactly what she is right now as she sits here, and he's still asking that question, that way, because it's what he'd ask anyone. Because he's tired and drowsy and he'd rather stay where he is, but that means he'll stay drowsy.

    Summary

    "The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. Hey, the good things don't always soften the bad things, but, vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things, or make them unimportant." - the Doctor, "Vincent and the Doctor"

    Summary

    He's already fed her once, when he first woke up - fed her, put her in the litter, and otherwise left her in the box with the heat pad under it on low. Now, at the hour most sane people start their day, her noises turn on an edge of distress instead of just noise, endless baby call and answer. So he digs out the washed bottle and the stuff the vet student gave him and goes to pick her up.

    Summary

    Bucky looks down at it. It's small, small enough to fit easily in his hand, and orange. Its eyes are closed, but he thinks that's because of the crust on them, like some kind of discharge glued them shut. It's a short-hair and it's orange and that's about all he can tell - the closest he's ever been to cats before that he remembers are back-alley strays and even those are recollections are fuzzy, faint, things he hadn't bothered thinking about because they were normal and so now, after all the fucking mess, aren't clear.

    Summary

    As the tub fills and fills with bubbles that have a faint but not actively unpleasant synthetic edge to their perfume, Clint drags one of the armchairs into the bathroom and settles into it with his feet up on the vanity counter; when Natalia turns off the tap and slides into the foam he says, "I don't want to be a pain, but the long story'd be nice."

    Summary

    Following the return to Rogers' home, there is an internal readjustment of priorities: injuries beyond bruises and shallow abrasions require attention, or Rogers' reaction is an intense, incomprehensible distress. Not anger, not . . .disappointment. Only distress.
