    Summary

    "So," Martin takes a sip from his mug, the same sunflower one from the night before. "You're a human, then?"

    Jon nods. "Once. It's... Complicated." Jon grabs his thimble and takes a sip. Chamomile. Better than peppermint he thinks, but still not his favorite.

    "It's a curse. Pretty bad one, too." He sets the thimble down. "Not painful, necessarily, not like lots of curses. But... Inconvenient. And it doesn't seem to be leaving me anytime soon."

    "I could help you." Martin offers, and when Jon looks up at him, he seems just as surprised by the offer as Jon does.

    "I mean, well... I'm an apothecary. I could try to heal you, if you'd let me." Martin explains, staring down at his tea.
    _________

    Jon is the victim of an odd curse, and the kind apothecary who saved his life offers to heal him and let him stay in his cottage. How could Jon possibly say no?

    Summary

    Jon wasn’t anything special. He was an ordinary researcher at Bright Eye Watchmen, Inc.; not terribly skilled at his job, and certainly not very likeable, but ordinary. He could be a bit too dedicated to unearthing the truth, at least if you listened to what Tim had to say about it, but Jon tried not to make a habit of doing that.

    When Jon catches the attention of Elias Bouchard, head of the local research institute, he finds himself wishing he’d listened to Tim just a little more.

    Bark-brown, leathery wings pulled away from the creature’s torso, briefly revealing six limbs clinging tightly to the tree trunk above. The eyes that stared down at the man were backlit by a deep, bloody red, except for the pupils. Those were white. Blank, wide, white orbs that watched him.

    “What are you?” he whispered.

    Jon didn’t know.

    Summary

    He peers between the branches at the spiderweb, gently pushing some away to get a better view. He wonders what kind of spider it is, if he can catch a glimpse of it. There aren’t that many types in England, but-- 

    Oh. He doesn’t spot the spider, but there’s something else trapped in the middle of the web. A large moth, its wings splayed helpless and immobile. As he watches, he sees its legs wriggle ineffectually in the air. It’s a surprisingly pitiful sight, making Martin’s heart unexpectedly wrench a bit for the poor thing. 

    -

    Martin saves a moth from a spider. He doubts that this decision will have any sort of serious repurcussions.

    Summary

    Tony Stark is prepared to admit defeat. Too many friends are dead. His ship is nearly dead. There hasn't been food or water for days, the oxygen's nearly gone, and he used the last power he had available to record a message to Pepper. Maybe, he's starting to think, it would have been better if Thanos had killed him outright.

    Things never turn out the way Tony expects.
