    Summary

    So Jarvis is the one who pulls her up onto her feet, presses a tool into one hand and a book into the other and tells her to create. Tells her that if the numbers and the shapes and images in her mind hurt so bad then she should build them, should give them form so that they can finally leave her alone.

    Jarvis is the one who finally teaches her how to breathe.

    Or

    Toni Stark grows up with the tale of Icarus swirling in the back of her mind. Instead of taking it as a precautionary tale about hubris and overreaching she decides it's more about the limitations of wax.

    Years later when she builds herself wings of her own she makes sure to build them out of better material.

    Summary

    After spending years under HYDRA's control the last thing Bucky wants is to return to their ranks. He does so only because his situation provides an invaluable opportunity to infiltrate the most impenetrable army in the galaxy — his own discomfort is a small price to pay for the lives he might save in the future.

    Three months is all he can take before he decides to throw his cover and find his way back to Steve, HYDRA hot on his heels. With him, Bucky has a memory drive of stolen information and a second personality sharing his body, courtesy of HYDRA’s brainwashing.

    All Bucky wants is to deliver the information to Steve and the Alliance and finally return home, but when his ship is damaged he has no choice but to stop for emergency repairs. He's directed to 'The Mechanic,' who can supposedly help, but Bucky isn't exactly comforted when he meets the man in question.

    But with HYDRA breathing down his neck Bucky doesn't have a choice — he's going to have to trust this Tony, whether he likes it or not.

    Summary

    "As the stranger slings an arm under his to walk them both towards a waiting car, Rhys slowly comes to the realization that he might or might not actually be kind of really fucking drunk. “Might” seems to be winning out over “might not” right now, which would really suck, considering the person he seems to have inadvertently picked up is a) really hot, and b) very clearly down for sexy times."

     ---

    Vaughn and Rhys just finished their first week as Hyperion interns. Rhys makes bad decisions. Jack just wants to get social services off his back (it's bad for his PR). Turns out having a(n interrupted) one-night stand the night before an interview is a really bad idea.

    **chapter 6 is just the deleted scene from ch5, not an actual new chapter, sorry!

    Summary

    "Where am I? Where is this?" and he was in Brooklyn, he was on a beach, the train was shaking around him. He was in the plane, ice splintering up onto the windshield. He was in a tank, tubes trailing from his face, from his groin. Christ, he was cold. There was still ice on his fingers. He was in the Grand Canyon. He was in Times Square. This couldn't be Times Square. Where the hell was this? "Tell me! Where am I, who are you, where's—" —Bucky?
