    Summary

    Tony's hands are the kind that create new worlds and opportunities for people who haven't learned what it means to live and not survive, hands that touch paper and make it bloom into something beautiful on a level beyond art because it saves lives and homes and is only the very tip of what he can do with those hands calloused from hard work and determination.

    "I'm sorry about your hands," Tony says, and Steve laughs.

    "Tony," Steve tells him, quiet and plaintive as he spreads his bloody, bruised hands out. "I use these hands to draw something and it changes nothing. You use your hands, you could make a machine that saves an entire third world country halfway across the world."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Have you ever loved balm? Your body aches and you feel tired but then there's this stinging gel rubbed over the bruise; you hate it at first for making you aware of your pain but then you relax. Your body untenses enough for you to let itself calm down. You stop fighting the urge to keep going, keep your knuckles closed, and the balm is allowed to heal you. Have you ever loved something that heals you? What if that balm was love? What if that was a piece of fiction, a fanfic? Well, I think I just relearnt how to. I've loved words before and now I remember how again.

    Summary

    Tony glances shyly at Steve through his eyelashes. Steve’s looking back at him, steady and curious. His eyes are blue, like the sky, and he doesn’t look shy at all.

    ‘I’m Steve,’ he says. ‘You should sit here.’ Then he goes back to carefully organising his pencils. He has lots of colours.

    Or: The Avengers start school together and it goes about as smoothly as you'd expect.
