    Summary

    Pepper reaches out to grab Maria as they reach the gurney. Now that she’s had time to calm down, to focus on something other than herself, she can feel the other woman’s emotional fragility beneath the professional shell. She wishes there was something she could do, but words desert her and this moment with all the other personnel around them isn’t private.

    Summary

    He dreams of screaming, of a burning line of fire around his wrists, around his throat, around his soul. He is peeled like a potato, scraping off sections of his mind, digging parts of him out, throwing them away. And although he knows they’re not good parts, not parts that he should want to keep, he clings to them because they’re him; they’ve been him for so long that he may not exist without them...

    Summary

    He surveys the land before them as the Wakandan plane hovers over the landscape, and Natasha tries to imagine it through his eyes.
    “A farm?”
    “A safehouse.” Somewhere to recover, with no lingering ghosts, with nothing to trigger his responses, even now the programming has been taken out.
    The expression on his face is bleak. “And is it safe for them?”

    Summary

    There’s no palm trees, no sand, no watery inlets, no tower – not anymore. Yet Chirrut knows exactly where he is. He can feel it – hope and success in the midst of death and destruction – that this was both the ending and the beginning, like the tale of an ancient snake who endlessly swallowed its tail to represent time unending...

    Summary

    Elizabeth smiled. “That’s Rodney’s paranoia talking. And,” she admitted, “some experience. We’ve only been ‘walking through Gates’ for the last seven years, and in that time there’s been a lot of aliens try to take over Earth. We’re not used to people who want to interact in a spirit of adventure and exploration.”

    Summary

    Magic had laws. His mother had been a lecturer of physics at Oxford for years before her sciatica made the constant standing an agony. Hunith had been the one to teach Merlin that all energy came from somewhere, that there was nothing new under the sun, and that every action had an equal and opposite reaction. She’d also been the one to observe that her son’s abilities and gifts followed those rules...most of the time.

    Summary

    Her first sight of Bucky Barnes is over the barrel of a sniper rifle in the hills to the west of Wroclaw, deep in German-occupied territory. He is young and martial then, frowning slightly as he watches the prison camp in the snowy valley below through the scope of his rifle.

    Some seventy years later, Diana’s first sight of the Winter Soldier is sitting on a seat of carved stone in a tropical garden in Wakanda, leaning back so the hot sun falls across his body, the rough arm prosthetic a jarring sight in the fluid greenery of the garden.

    Summary

    Aravis has renounced all else, but she cannot renounce the blood running in her veins. She is born out of the line of Tisrocs and Tarkaans, blood of Calormene rulers who have laid siege to Archenland by means both foul and fair through the ages, and she may not lay claim to Archenland’s heir.

    Summary

    “Why pink, anyway?” She wondered idly as she combed her fingers through the still-damp strands. “If we can magic the bubble into any color, why pink?”

    “We tried making the bubble with all the other colours,” Maria reminded her from where she sat at the portable desk. “Pink’s the most efficient.”
