    Summary

    “This job... we try to save as many people as we can. Sometimes that doesn't mean everybody. But if we can't find a way to live with that, next time... maybe nobody gets saved.”

    At the end of the day Steve did save everybody. He saved Bucky from Tony, his team from the government, the world from the Sokovia Accords. Some time would probably have to pass for things to blow over, and then everything would go back to normal. Couple of days. Tops. After all Team Cap saved everybody, showing the world how dangerous the accords were, how easily they could be abused. Even their supporters had to come to their senses now.

    Yet five days after Siberia nobody feels safe. Things don’t calm down and suddenly it’s again Steve against the rest of the world. Only now it’s not some international organisation or government but the people. The ones he had saved. Slowly Captain America must realize that they don’t feel saved but angry, hurt and scared.
    The people demand justice for those who were really trying to save them and paid the price for it.

    Summary

    Tony can't get himself back from Siberia, and it takes the night for him to be rescued. While waiting to see if he'll die of hypothermia, he realises something for the first time. It wasn't that he failed because he hadn't tried hard enough. He had failed because he had tried too hard. His so-called team-mates had formed the habit of blaming Tony for everything because he had let them. He had shouldered the blame, let them attack him without consequence, and cleaned up after their mess, all so they could continue to feel self-righteous in peace. But it wasn't just him they were attacking, and saving the world didn't give them a free pass to be the very bullies that Steve claimed to fight against.

    Tony woke up in hospital, still sustained by the relief of his realisation. Things sucked, but they would get better. He was Tony Stark, and no challenge was too much for him. It was odd how much easier it was to plot when he actually did intend ways to manipulate the ex-Avengers into falling in line. And since that was what they seemed convinced he was doing all along, they didn't deserve a warning that it would now be true.

    Summary

    If the Winter Soldier didn’t go to sleep in a helicopter, he didn’t expect to wake up in one. Waking up to hear Everett Ross yelling "Oh good, he's awake, now he can join this absolute CLUSTER," didn't help either.

    Summary

    Ostensibly, they’re meeting to set up a book club, but there’s so much more going on than that: there’s Jess’ crush on Rose, Rose’s crush on Jess, Rey’s attempts at matchmaking, Poe’s and Finn’s flirting, and then there’s poor Paige, who just wants to stop feeling like the group babysitter.

    Love, Romance, Misunderstandings...with just a side of Jane Austen.

    Summary

    "Did you know I'm worth a quarter herd of bantha?”

    At Jyn’s sharp inhale, Baze said, without opening his eyes, “My husband is an unrepentant liar. He is barely worth one sick bantha, much less a healthy quarter herd.”

    In which Chirrut and Baze have spent more than half their lives together, and Chirrut likes to spin stories of how they were married.
