    Summary

    All five of the dogs were in the backyard, bounding enthusiastically through an obstacle course assembled from the kind of junk that accumulated in rich people’s attics. There were platforms made of legless chairs, tents of old tablecloths to run through, and a pile of sofa cushions the dogs took great delight in plowing into. The dogs were being directed by a one-armed man with long brown hair and a serious case of resting murderface.

    "You guys," Clint hissed. "That's the Winter Soldier."

    "Oh, word?" America said. She looked idly at her nails.

    "You knew?"

    Kate rolled her eyes. "Of course we knew. How many one-armed amnesiacs do you think are running around these days? It's fine, I shot at him a little when he first turned up to make sure he wouldn't go berserk."

    "He was real polite about it," America said. "Didn't return fire or anything."

     

    (In which Clint liberates a pack of serum-enhanced dogs and ends up collecting one more stray than he bargained for.)

    Summary

    Marvel says its civil war is what happens when superheroes are in the real world. I don’t know what world they’re in, because that’s not what happens in the real world; this is.

    This was originally supposed to be crack and then it turned into crack taken seriously. I’m not sure what it is now, other than a way for me to work out my frustration with the whole civil war thing, as well as my frustration with Age of Ultron and all the Tony-bashing I’ve been seeing. But I couldn’t resist a hopeful ending, which I fear we won’t get from CA: CW.

    Summary

    Billy has a crush. A hopeless crush, if one asks him, which really doesn't explain why he would talk about it with Tony of all people, when there are so much better choices. Except, of course, that Tony very much understands the appeal of tall, beefy men with blond hair and baby blue eyes.

    Before he can follow Tony's suggestion and just talk to the oh-so-hot and sweet Teddy Altman, though, Billy's world is turned upside down when a confrontation with a bully turns ugly.
