    Summary

    “Hello,” Steve whispers quietly, carefully brushing some of the tears away from the baby's cheeks.

    Giving a sniffle, the baby latches on to Steve’s hand, then whines unhappily, hiccuping wetly.

    “I don’t know how to, you know,” Steve explains helplessly, making something that vaguely resembles a cradling, rocking motion with his free arm. The baby is less than impressed with that, though, and takes a noisy, stuttering breath. Steve’s eyes widen in alarm. “Oh, no. No, ssh, no. Here, c’mon, it’s all right.”

    Very gingerly, Steve slides one hand under the baby’s back, cups its neck with the other, and slowly lifts the squirmy bundle out of the crib, and against his chest. “There, ssh. That’s better, isn’t it?”

    In answer, the baby tucks its damp face into Steve’s neck, apparently content to stay where it is. Steve glances around the room, a little lost, but the baby just gurgles, and doesn’t start crying again, which he decides to count as a success.

    Summary

    After a bad group session Bucky ends up driving blindly for a while before accidentally parking on the street Clint works. The conversation is strange and nothing happens, but it leaves Bucky feeling better than therapy did so he keeps returning and hiring Clint. It’s the easiest interactions he’s had since his accident, and when they get to the point of having sex he can’t deny it’s nice getting off.

    Of course he ends up doing what he’s not supposed to and falls for Clint.

    Summary

    Anthony is unexpectedly brought back to Winterfell to be King in the North following his parent’s death. Frankly, he would have preferred continuing to work on his special projects - such as anonymously participating in tourneys as the Iron Man, and forging his special steel - instead of being given a crown. As for Captain Steven Rogers, he doesn't quite know how to deal with this unconventional new king.

    Unfortunately, their lives are shaken again when Hydra strikes.

    Summary

    “Spider,” Tony repeats, remembering vaguely what the guy had started babbling about as soon as Tony had opened the door. At the time he’d been occupied with blinking blearily at what he could only assume was a vivid, exhaustion-provoked hallucination of an Actual Angel descended before him. “In your bathtub.”
