    I stood there with my ear against the wall
    I was not seized by jealousy at all
    in fact a burden lifted from my soul
    I learned that love was out of my control
    -"Paper Thin Hotel", Leonard Cohen

    Or, basically, the 'verse where pretty much everyone is poly and some kind of kinky.

    Don't play cards with Captain America. Just don't. Especially if you've pissed him off recently.

    Summary

    "Oh, well, you know," Steve tried, but Clint tilted his head, still keeping Steve's eye, and said, direct as Sam that day by the reflecting pool, "You don't know how to handle it, do you?"

    "Excuse me?" Steve said, only out of the pure reflex politeness Sarah Rogers had bred into him before he was six years old.

    "Grief." Clint's look was unsparing, merciless, but held no judgement, either. "The loss. The pain, the anger...." He waited, but Steve couldn't say anything any more than he could look away. "So you tried to make a deal. Dedicate your life to what's left, do what you can do. Strike a bargain that would make it all go away -- only you can't. It won't. And it never will."

    Steve's throat was dry, so he took a long drink of water, and then another one, trying to think of something to say that wasn't How do you know? or No I'm fine thanks or even just Fuck you, but when he looked back up, Clint was actually smiling, a little. "Or you can tell me I'm wrong."

    Summary

    Agent Hill: You thought they were a threat. I thought they were a joke. Nick Fury only ever saw them as the Avengers. No matter what he said. If he hadn't seen that, well, Midtown Manhattan would be a smoking crater, for one thing....It was absolutely a bad idea. The wrong people at the wrong time and....It worked. They came together and they saved us! And it's....infuriating! We’re trained to believe in a system, not to gamble....Not to hope. Nick Fury saw something....Running under the system, a current, a connection, a truth....About what we can do, what they would become. The Avengers were the mistake that saved the world. That’s my official statement.

    Summary

    The visitors’ center is like the ruins of an ancient temple, covered in plants and collapsed in some places.

    “It’s just like I remember,” Dr. Sattler whispers. “It’s been so long.”

    It’s just like Claire remembers, too, though it doesn’t feel like it’s been very long. A year, she reminds herself. A year, and she still isn’t over this.

    Summary

    This was originally meant to be a lighthearted vignette about Steve going to see Hamilton. It turned into something else along the way. To me, it's a Tony Stark story.
