    Summary

    In the beginning, there were only the two - light and water.

    And from them, all of life was born.

    And so the two of them - light and water - would defend all that they had made, from jealous stars, from entropy, from destruction, even from life itself.

    And they would have fun while doing it.

    You guys know what that means at this point.

    ---------

    An odd little piece to show you the inner machinations of my mind.

    Summary

    Tony can't get himself back from Siberia, and it takes the night for him to be rescued. While waiting to see if he'll die of hypothermia, he realises something for the first time. It wasn't that he failed because he hadn't tried hard enough. He had failed because he had tried too hard. His so-called team-mates had formed the habit of blaming Tony for everything because he had let them. He had shouldered the blame, let them attack him without consequence, and cleaned up after their mess, all so they could continue to feel self-righteous in peace. But it wasn't just him they were attacking, and saving the world didn't give them a free pass to be the very bullies that Steve claimed to fight against.

    Tony woke up in hospital, still sustained by the relief of his realisation. Things sucked, but they would get better. He was Tony Stark, and no challenge was too much for him. It was odd how much easier it was to plot when he actually did intend ways to manipulate the ex-Avengers into falling in line. And since that was what they seemed convinced he was doing all along, they didn't deserve a warning that it would now be true.

    If you want this choice position, have a cheery disposition. (Or: Tony needs an assistant. Rhodey needs a break.)
