    Summary

    Mike socks him in the jaw and reflexively, Harvey’s fist flies out, splitting Mike’s lip. “Fuck! Sorry.”

    “Get your hands up.”

    “Mike -”

    “Get your fucking hands up, Harvey!”

    He stares. “What the hell is wrong with you?”

    “Wrong with me? You’re the one who doesn’t give a shit until someone’s bleeding.”

    “What are you talking about?”

    Mike snaps. “Why would you give me a job, and a home, and a family, and then fucking decide you don’t care about me?”

    “Don’t care about you?” If Mike were wise he’d heed the warning in the quiet snarl of Harvey’s voice, but there’s a giant gap between intelligence and wisdom, and he hasn’t made that leap yet. “I risked everything for you!”

    “So you could avoid me?”

    “I’m not avoiding you!”

    “Is there a synonym you’d prefer? ‘Cause you sure don’t seem to want anything to do with me!”

    They’re close enough that Mike can see the twitch of Harvey’s jaw, even in the low light. “You don’t know shit about what I want,” he whispers.

    “Oh yeah? Why don’t you enlighten me.”

    "Oathbreakers, why have ye come?"

    "To fulfill our oath and have peace."

    A grief-stricken man searches for answers along the Paths of the Dead. Written in March 2003 (I think). My very first attempt at writing a short story. Posted originally at the Library of Moria.

    Summary

    "If I've had the time to hide all these goddamned things, you have the time to find them. Fuck, Sean, would it hurt you to just play along for once? Do I ask that much of you? I don't expect you to come to openings or readings or visit the set, though God knows I've invited you enough times." Viggo sounded pissed, full of righteous indignation. It had been too long...

    Summary

    When Damisa-Sarki comes down from the mountains, follow him.

    "We have nothing to gain from fighting his battles, from spilling our blood in his name. When it is over, he will turn his back to us. He will not care once he has his throne back."

    Are you not the Great Gorilla? Are you not the pride of your people? Be their voice. Make Damisa-Sarki listen. The Jabari will not be forgotten again.

    Summary

    Forgiveness is a journey, or so Tony was maybe told a long time ago. He doesn't know about any of that and doesn't particularly care to. In the wake of civil war, the Avengers remain, as do their enemies. And Tony Stark rebuilds, as always.

    He destroys the phone, he burns the letter. But he can't (he won't) eliminate Steve Rogers from his mind.
