    Summary

    “Why did you think I wouldn’t like you for being gay?” Steve asks gently.

    “You’re Captain America.” Eli’s got his teeth clenched and is resolutely looking ahead. “You stand for truth and justice and the American way. You stand for American morals. You stand for…” he shrugs awkwardly. “Not people like me.”

    Steve blows the air out of his cheeks slowly, trying to figure out how to keep the anger out of his voice so Eli doesn’t think it’s at him.

    Or, Steve comes to terms with his new world, and gains some children in the process.

    Summary

    Miss Gibson said, “In the spirit of truthful admission, Miss Bennet, I intend to spend some time devising the right question for you. If I may see you again?”

    Why did that sound strange? But she always sounded strange to people herself. And it was a familiar kind of strangeness, as if it were something she had heard before, only not like this.

    Mary, constrained by the principles of truth, could only admit that she would enjoy that very much.

    Summary

    At first, the Iron Bull is just writing poetry to Dorian because it's a fun way to tease him—he gets all huffy when he's pretending he doesn't think the lowbrow stuff is funny, and besides, he started it by making it a Vint-versus-Qunari thing. It's only fair for Bull to needle him a bit.

    At first, Dorian is only writing back to Bull because he can't let him win. The pride of Tevinter's literary tradition (not to mention his own dignity) is at stake here, and he will not be beaten at metaphor by someone who thinks cattle-related puns are an appropriate way to seduce someone.

    And that's all it is. At first.
