Ryder sometimes thinks about the first time the three of them met, her ship on fire and their guns trained on her head. No one involved would have believed that they would ever earn one another's trust - though war makes the strangest bedfellows of all.

What if Tony and Bucky met after CATWS? What if the CACW bad guys were really the bad guys?
"But Buck's…" Steve swallows visibly and his gaze dips for a moment. "He's all that's left."
And isn't that a punch in the gut. Tony looks away sharply and carefully keeps his breathing steady despite the sudden sharp ache in his chest. Of course Steve would run off half-cocked, chasing down the last person connecting to his old life. Peggy's gone. Freshly buried.
"Seriously, Tony? You can't even make the damn time to attend her funeral?"
He couldn't, what with the damned conflicting timing of political events requiring his presence; he doesn't have enough power or standing to force a reschedule. Was it even worth it? he wonders. The bombing derailed the opening ceremony regarding the Accords and now it's on hold as the investigation begins and the United Nations regains its feet and sorts out its priorities. Ross is breathing down Tony's neck and trying to justify detaining Captain America for reasons Tony prefers not to dwell on right now. James is on the run, Friday's sorting through more data than she's ever handled, and Tony's stuck here.

“Hades and Persephone reborn huh,” Fury states then more than asks, “no need to ask which is which.”
Toni’s brows furrow even as dread begins to squirm to life inside of her.
But before she can say anything, before she can open her mouth and set the record straight, she hears it.
A murmur as loud as a scream from somewhere in the tomb silent bridge.
“That whole Merchant of Death thing,” someone off to the side faux whispers, “makes a lot more sense now.”
It echoes across the bridge like a gunshot.

Winter wants to snarl, wants to howl at the injustice of it, but he knows Bucky is right. They need to get the Witch away from Tony and back home to be punished. He looks down at Tony; at the head of unruly dark hair resting so trustingly against his ribs. He feels the skinny chest rising gently beneath his arm, the steady puff of warm breath he can feel through his sweatshirt. This child is...important and Winter wants, more fiercely than he can ever remember, to protect him.
Or in which Wanda attempts to alter the past Terminator style, Bucky and his moody alter ego intervene, and Winter makes a choice. A choice that leads to new beginnings, fragile hope and maybe the chance to heal.
