    Summary

    Why exactly is Tony Stark a redemptive hero? Watching how he's treated by his fellow Avengers you'd think being a former military contractor is a sin far in excess of being former terrorist, a former assassin, a former war-mongering prince, but that can't possibly be right.

    And the Vulture's operation of making weapons for criminals, only in looney-ville would that be considered no different from making weapons for a legitimate government, right?

    Summary

    The world keeps pushing him, demanding, because what he did wasn't ever enough. Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, but that wasn't enough, wasn't ever enough.

    Tony Stark was tired. But he had a planet to protect, even if everyone laughed at him whenever the prospect of alien invasions was brought up. He could count on one hand how many people he could trust, which was disheartening but then, what else was new?

    Summary

    “This is all good and well,” Percival tells the Goldsteins, “but what about the egg that will inevitably become an occamy that lives in my coat pocket?”

    Tina furrows her brow and puts on a stern scowl; she stares.

    “Mr. Graves doesn’t answer personal questions,” Queenie says seriously.

    - - -

    Six months later, Porpentina Goldstein frees Percival Graves from his prison. He recovers, he returns to work, and he learns how to cope and how to move on and how to let people back in after crippling betrayal. Then he meets Newt Scamander and he has to learn how to deal with an eccentric Brit who somehow worms his way into Percival's heart, one bright smile at a time.
