"The two sat in silence as Roman cleaned up the mess of antiseptic wipes and gauze, Virgil’s eyes tracking his movements lazily. Once the kit was tucked away safely, a sigh passed through Roman’s lips as he sat against the wall, hand in his hair. The two sat there quietly- for how long, neither knew.
'...Sorry.' The word almost goes unnoticed if not for the piercing silence.
Roman scoffs. 'Yeah? Why?'
Virgil’s eyes are trained on the floor, looking vacant. 'I know you hate playing nurse.'"
A new foster home, a new town, a new school- Virgil and Roman aren't new to the experience. However, that doesn't make it easier to navigate.

Kenny's whole life was for one thing: protecting his family. His circumstances be damned, he'd do what he needed to protect them.

Everyone thought the Arc Reactor had fixed everything. It had saved Tony's life, that was true. But having a giant hole with your chest came with complications. Tony had it under control; no need to bother the team with his problems. He was enough of a burden as it was. And it was fine....mostly.

Tony wasn't bitter or jealous, he was fine. Steve had to focus on helping Bucky, he understood that. He knew that in situations like this it was only natural for him to be pushed to the side. He was okay, he could handle not being the most important person in Steve's life. He just had to stop being selfish.

He had a memory, old and faded, but real, of his mother whispering to him when he was really little. She would hold him on her lap and give him scritches - that's what she called it when she ran her fingers through his hair, her nails lightly scratching at his scalp while he giggled and felt almost safe.
Bruce realized he was doing the same thing to Tony, his fingers running through Tony's hair, then lightly scratching at his scalp. Tony, still asleep, seemed to realize the touch was friendly, because he calmed a bit.
