  2. Summary

  4. Summary

    Vienna Salvatori, impossibly glamorous bounty hunter, has one little rule: no one gets to hear her name and live.

    That works great, when she isn't hired to kill immortals. Repeatedly. Several of them.

    Summary

    Natalia is stacking blocks very carefully when the adults come into the room. None of them look at her, because they're all looking at her father. He's wearing combat gear, and the hair on the left side of his head is slicked back with blood. He smells like smoke and something unnameable, sweet and dark and a little sickly in her nose.

    Father is saying, “Don't be ridiculous. The only thing children are good at is disobeying.”

    Summary

    In which Steve Rogers takes one look at the history of American military interventions since the end of World War II and nopes straight out of it, follows in his Ma's footsteps to become a paramedic, joins Doctors Without Borders, gets sent on an unsanctioned humanitarian mission to Syria, and somehow still ends up being a determining factor in Hydra's downfall - all of this without throwing a single punch.

    Somehow, he's okay with it.

    Summary

    A for effort, H-A-W-K-E-Y-E, Kate says as soon as she frees herself from her harness. They really need to come up with a real sign instead of just fingerspelling all the time. Maybe miming drawing a bow, then pointing to the eyes. Something cool. You have to get over your boner for that boomerang arrow.

    "Did you just sign 'angry penis'?" Sam says, distracted from his unresolved sexual tension with Natasha.

    "Whatever," Kate says. She flips her hair. "I'm learning."
