    Summary

    Raising a boy as a single mother is hard enough. Keeping said boy out of trouble when he's got an iron-clad sense of honor, a hair-trigger temper and less common sense than the average goose is damned near impossible.

    Julie Coulson, for one, blamed Steve Rogers.

    Summary

    The Cavalry once killed twenty men with a single pistol, they say.

    Or maybe it was fifty.

    The Cavalry once killed a hundred men, they say, on other days, around other campfires, these future agents of SHIELD, these gossipy children. On horseback, they tell the freshmen, and snicker. A hundred men.

    The number trips off the tongue. The methods vary, the numbers, and they all trip off the tongue easily—what is twenty dead villains? A hundred? A good day's work. We're the heroes, after all.

    Fifty, twenty, a hundred—they're all just syllables. All just sizes of victories, not a careful count of gasping faces.

    The Cavalry killed twenty—fifty—a hundred men, and Melinda May saw the light go out of each of them.
    --
    As a child, Melinda would steal the plastic lid off the kitchen trash can, mount it on one arm, and charge out into the backyard to save the world with her plastic shield.

    (a Melinda May character study)
