    Summary

    “How long until earthfall J?” Toni asks, hands steady on the wheel and mind whirling.

    “If the current rate of propulsion is kept, less than an hour,” JARVIS tells her promptly. “The vessel is large, fast, and does not seem to be attempting to maintain any level of true stealth. Radio contact will be possible in five to ten minutes, Miss.”

    Toni, having been enjoying a leisurely drive down the scenic route back to the Compound, is just under an hour away even if she speeds significantly. That’s unacceptable.

    “I’ll be there in six,” Toni tells him even as she pushes the seat back a bit from the dash. “Scramble the Legion, get Rhodey and Vision on alert, and send a ping to Panthro. Don’t tell them to assemble just … to be ready to if we have to.”

    “Of course, Miss,” JARVIS answers promptly.

    Even without her hands on the wheel the car doesn’t so much as sway off course.

    JARVIS has, as always, anticipated her every need.

    Summary

    It always hurt like this when he came out of the ice. Freezing to death was peaceful at the end, but waking up was fire and pain and this horrible helpless shaking every time. This was the first time he'd had someone to hold on to, though.

    Summary

    Enhanced humans are not considered legally human; they are the property of the government or the company that created them. The crew of the Avenger consists of enhanced humans who have escaped/run away and are trying to fly under the radar.

    Tony Stark was kidnapped and enhanced against his will. No longer considered human, Tony had taken up with a pirate crew to try to bring change to the galaxy.

    Obediah Stane has taken over Stark Industries and wants to sell the secrets of Extremis to the highest bidder. The only successful enhancile, Maya Henson, escaped with the functional prototype in her own veins.

    Tony and Obie are racing to find Maya. Tony's life just got complicated, however, with the salvage of a Hydra warship and the Asset they find inside.

    Summary

    The doctor pulled out the teacher's chair and sat across from Steve, his hands folded and his face solemn and kindly. "It happens once in a while," he said. His voice was soft and gentle, and irrationally, it made Steve angry. Such ugly news ought to be delivered in a more fitting tone. "The most likely cause is that your intended mate died before you were born or shortly after they were born, before the bond had time to fully form. It's called a Type C or a Type--"

    Steve wasn't interested in the terminology. "Is that why I'm... like this?" He gestured down at his frail, sickly body.

    "Probably," the doctor said. "There are some further tests we can give you, down at the hospital, to determine--"

    "Why bother?" Steve growled, slumping back in his chair and crossing his arms. "My mate is dead and no one else is going to want me, not like this." Tears stung his eyes and he blinked them back furiously.

    "It's also possible, though less likely, that you're a Type A -- firstborn of the pairing -- but that your mate has simply not yet been born," the doctor said.
