    Summary

    Steve really didn’t mind the background noise. Explosions aside, he could generally read in just about any situation without much added strain. He didn’t mind the unspoken interaction. Really, he didn’t even mind when his reading was interrupted even when he could tell they all very carefully tried not to.

    Summary

    Howard had resigned himself to never knowing the name of the man on the other end of that potential bond. He had resigned himself to the fact that there was a very high chance he would never see him again, get to know him, and with any small amount of luck, get to love him.

    Summary

    Scott was pretty sure this was all meant to be the butt of some sort of cosmic joke. Like, he got it. He was a pretty easy target for that kind of thing.

    But he really, really hoped this wasn’t a joke.

    Summary

    Outside the forest's edge, sounds of chaos and unnatural violence erupt. Loud enough to shake the trees from branches to roots, to send all manner of creatures fleeing the noise. The air carries the foul taste and scent of the disturbance in the aftermath. The potency of the after is followed only by more. Staccato sounds vibrate the very air. More rumbles that disturb and singe the greenery of the treeline.

    The forest didn't usually involve itself.

    But they will be in need of a guide, if they wish to make it to the forest’s end alive. The forest knows its guard can be as wary of many of its creatures but will help. That will be for the best.

    The forest does not interfere any further once it is satisfied that destruction is contained. Though it does watch, and it does listen. Men or no, they sought the forest’s depths for protection and that is not a call the forest can ignore.

    Summary

    It wasn’t Steve’s usual haunt. He was more inclined to stick to the hole-in-the-wall sports bar a few blocks from home in the opposite direction when he wanted to get out for a couple hours. But places like this lent a sense of anonymity that he didn’t find in most places. Between the dim lighting and the loud volume of the music, it was too chaotic to bother trying to even exchange names. He was just another guy out for a good time. Not Steve Rogers, not Captain America.

    Summary

    “A successful mission?” Clint offered innocently, that was at least a relatively safe response. It had been a successful if not unconventional one.

    “I think you know that’s not what I'm talking about,” Fury countered. “Turn on the news, no one gives a damn if that mission was successful or not.”

    Summary

    It had been a very long time since Steve had last felt like this. There was a buzz in his mind and tingling through his body. His movements were just slightly slower, clumsier and his were words spoken a little more loosely with a tongue that felt more weighty than it ought to. Even that, though, felt different than the last time that he’d had the opportunity to overindulge with a friend.

    Summary

    It reminded him, a little bit, of stepping into a machine seeing everything in varying shades of grey. Only to stumble out again into a world of color more vibrant than anything he could have possibly imagined.

    Overwhelming but entirely breathtaking and welcome.

    Summary

    “I dunno, Cap,” he said at last. “You’re not exactly human either, though, are you?”

    Steve had considered the man for a long moment and then shrugged. “Not anymore, I don’t think.”

    “That isn’t something that just changes, Rogers. Not on your scale. If you aren’t now then I’d wager the entire outcome of this war that you never were. Sounds about like you’ve always been this way. Just bigger now. Maybe this isn’t all wrong. Maybe you were all wrong before.”

    ________

    Steve went into Doctor Erskine's experiment a man, he came out something other entirely. With the highly secretive nature of the serum and Doctor Erskine's assassination, Steve has to learn this new form the hard way.

    An avenging angel sent by God was what the old woman had called him.

    But what kind of angel burned everyone they touched, marked everyone they kissed for death?

    By the time SHIELD recovers him from the ice, Steve was certain that he was no angel, avenging or otherwise.

    It's lucky, then, that Thor has the patience necessary to prove to Steve that he's not the monster he fears he's become either.

    Summary

    Steve thought nothing of it at first.

    Considering that it all started when he was still newly revived and barely knew which way was up on a good day, Steve thought he might be forgiven for the oversight. Impeccable memory or no, he was just as capable of misplacing things as anyone else.

    Not really, but it had worked as a convincing argument for a short while.

    Summary

    Tony sat, stunned, probably gaping like a wide-eyed idiot. He supposed that was an understandable response to getting smacked directly in the face with everything he’d wanted and been so sure he wouldn’t get to have.
