    Summary

    [...] When damping is small, the resonant frequency is approximately equal to the natural frequency of the system, which is a frequency of unforced vibrations. [...] When designing objects, engineers must ensure the mechanical resonance frequencies of the component parts do not match driving vibrational frequencies of motors or other oscillating parts, a phenomenon known as resonance disaster.

    -- Resonance. (2013, June 12). Wikipedia.

    Steve must be able to read the horror on his face this time, because he leans in. "Tony, you're being controlled? If you can respond, blink twice."

    Tony tries, he tries, but the best he can manage is a sort of flutter.

    Summary

    Forgiveness is a journey, or so Tony was maybe told a long time ago. He doesn't know about any of that and doesn't particularly care to. In the wake of civil war, the Avengers remain, as do their enemies. And Tony Stark rebuilds, as always.

    He destroys the phone, he burns the letter. But he can't (he won't) eliminate Steve Rogers from his mind.

    Summary

    There are moments, more than there were a month ago, when Stiles sounds almost like himself.

    “Curquitos, definitely.” Stiles brandishes the food in his hand, swiped yet again out of Scott’s cabinet, as evidence.

    “Taquitos made with curry and mystery meat?” Scott asks. “That’s your pick for the greatest invention of the past eighty years?”

    Yeah, this is Stiles exactly like himself. Exactly like the guy Scott’s known how to read for close to his entire life. Stiles has always, always derailed and distracted from conversations he didn’t want to have in exactly the same way.

     

    (but God, who wants to talk about spending eighty years as a brainwashed, one-armed assassin, anyway?)
