    Summary

    Bucky’s been at the Avengers Tower for three weeks before he finally gives in to Steve’s gentle coaxing and Stark’s cheerful waving of fistfuls of circuits, and lets them scan the arm.

    It doesn’t go well.

    Summary

    The lesson here, Susie thinks, is that tricking Death is tricky business. How do you outwit the personification of oblivion? Chess, obviously, won’t be the answer.

     

     

    Or: Susie plays Calvinball with Death.

    Summary

    When Aeschylus had sacrificed an old black goat to Ares, his prayer had been for an old soldier to join the city guard of the island of Aegina. Someone with strong nerves and the calm that came from many campaigns. Someone who'd put away the idea of glory. Someone who could handle the wealthy citizens, drunk sailors and visiting Athenians.

    That was why he'd prayed to Ares. Also, he couldn't very well pray to Athena given the problems with Athens. Ares was a god of city guards, or so he'd heard. So, he gave Ares an old goat.

    The man mountain who applied for the job was a bit slower on the mental oars than he'd hoped, and Aeshylus couldn't blame the man, boy really, for Aeshylus' inability to keep his eyes off the muscles on Thêritas of Thrace's muscles. But beggars couldn't be choosers.

    As it happened, it was fortunate that he hired Thêritas. Practically a miracle.

    Dr. Rodney McKay, astrophysicist, so full of music that sometimes it hurts. He can hear symphonies in his head; can hear the music of the stars and the universe playing in tandem to his lone piano on this lonely, lonely planet.

    Summary

    The tenderest touch leaves the darkest of marks
    And the kindest of kisses breaks the hardest of hearts

    Tony stared at Steve, trying to figure out what his response should be. He had no idea what to do, because people didn't do that, nobody told Tony Stark they loved him, nobody except for Rhodey that one time and Rhodey had been blackout drunk so it probably didn't count anyway, and besides--

    "Tony," Steve said, swallowing hard, his face still deathly pale. "Tony, I'm sorry, I didn't mean--"
