    Summary

    The continuing adventures of Warden Commander Amell - because tragedy does not wait for you.
    ---

    BENEATH the shadow of dawn’s aerial cope,
    With eyes enkindled as the sun’s own sphere,
    Hope from the front of youth in godlike cheer
    Looks Godward, past the shades where blind men grope
    Round the dark door that prayers nor dreams can ope,
    And makes for joy the very darkness dear
    That gives her wide wings play; nor dreams that fear
    At noon may rise and pierce the heart of hope.
    Then, when the soul leaves off to dream and yearn,
    May truth first purge her eyesight to discern
    What once being known leaves time no power to appal;
    Till youth at last, ere yet youth be not, learn
    The kind wise word that falls from years that fall—
    “Hope thou not much, and fear thou not at all.”
    ~ Algernon Charles Swinburne

    Summary

    The war started when Stiles was 22 and he was alongside the first line of recruits. Shortly after, Stiles disappeared, to be declared MIA two years later.

    But that's not where the story ends. Hell, that's not even the story. That's just one side of the 12-sided dice.

    Summary

    Peter Quill's mom had (as far as he remembered) always been a sweet, gentle and kindly soul. As such, he had grown up convinced that his father must have been, by way of cosmic balance, an asshole, and 100% a dick.

    After all, Peter had to have inherited that particular character flaw from someone.

    Summary

    Tony discovers Stane's betrayal while he's still being held captive. When he escapes, he sets out to ruin Stane as completely and ruthlessly as he can, playing up his PTSD and quitting his job to destroy Stane quietly from the outside. He also picks up a teaching job-all Pepper's fault-and oh, right, becomes a supervillain. Okay, that one was Tony's fault, but it was totally an accident.

    In the meantime, a certain Capsicle is defrosted a year early, and is assigned the task of capturing the notorious Iron Man. It's not going particularly well, if the embarrassingly high number of times he's been kidnapped in the past six months is any indication. When SHIELD decides to help him "adjust" by getting him a teaching job, Steve is skeptical; but then there's Tony, and Steve finds he doesn't mind the 21st century so much after all.
