  3. Summary

    "We are terrible for
    each other and, yes,
    we are disaster

    But tell me your heart
    doesn't race for a hurricane
    or a burning building.

    I'd rather die terrified

    than live forever.

    (mistakes aren't always regrets.)" --asofterworld #234

    Asexual Cas, angry and confused Meg and Dean, unrequited Benny, awkward Sam, this poor 'verse has the whole lot of 'em. This is one seriously wild ride with poor negotiation, relationships that grow around the people in them rather than the people in them growing up, and a whole lot of strong emotions. No one's sure, no one's got exactly what they want, but they're all trying, and that's as good as it gets.

    Remember, you don't have to try every kind of cake to know it's definitely not pie.

    Summary

    “She ran the red rooms,” Barnes said angrily. “She was Karpov’s right hand for god alone knows how long. If there’s anyone left in the world who might reasonably be expected to know every single trigger ever placed in my brain, it’s her. And you want me to walk out into a situation where –”

    “She’s the only person left in the world who might reasonably be expected to know how to clean them out,” said Romanov.

    Summary

    There are always kids that run away to the circus.

    Sometimes, they're from good families, kids from the depths of suburbia, looking for a new, exciting life. The circus is just a grittier, dirtier, summer camp to them, a brief foray into the seedy underbelly of travelling entertainment. They always go home, eventually.

    And, there are kids like Clint. Who have to learn to hit the bullseye every time, and split arrows on cue, who learn to balance on a tightrope blindfolded, who learn not to flinch when the knives hit the plywood only millimeters from their soft flesh. If they learn, they’ll thrive, and they’ll eat, and they’ll sleep, sometimes even with a sturdy roof over their heads.

    Sometimes, much later, some of those kids - from both categories - grow up and become SHIELD agents.
