    Summary

    The doctor pulled out the teacher's chair and sat across from Steve, his hands folded and his face solemn and kindly. "It happens once in a while," he said. His voice was soft and gentle, and irrationally, it made Steve angry. Such ugly news ought to be delivered in a more fitting tone. "The most likely cause is that your intended mate died before you were born or shortly after they were born, before the bond had time to fully form. It's called a Type C or a Type--"

    Steve wasn't interested in the terminology. "Is that why I'm... like this?" He gestured down at his frail, sickly body.

    "Probably," the doctor said. "There are some further tests we can give you, down at the hospital, to determine--"

    "Why bother?" Steve growled, slumping back in his chair and crossing his arms. "My mate is dead and no one else is going to want me, not like this." Tears stung his eyes and he blinked them back furiously.

    "It's also possible, though less likely, that you're a Type A -- firstborn of the pairing -- but that your mate has simply not yet been born," the doctor said.

    Summary

    I suppose you think it's funny that I chose to use a letter as my reply to your little peace offering. Tony Stark, man of the future, choosing this obsolete method to communicate when he has the world at his fingertips. I guess it is kind of odd, but the good thing about letters is they hide a lot of emotion.

    After Tony's funeral, Steve receives a reply to his letter.

    Sequel to 'Casualty of War' and 'Free Fall'.

    Summary

    “I know,” Tony tells him softly, eyes wide and soft and lips quirked in a small smile, “it isn’t fair.”

    Tony’s always been so good at knowing what Steve’s thinking, except for the few times Steve purposefully, actively, lied to him.

    Times he knows now he’ll never get the chance to make up for.

    “Focus,” Tony whispers as he leans forward into Steve’s space. “Breathe.”

    Summary

    Flames licked the air around Peter, and a terrible heat spread over his entire body. He was sweating and shaking before he even ran into the blanket of fire. People cried out for him to stop, including one of the officers that had taken off after him. His eyes locked onto the charcoaled room that would serve as his grave, and before concerned bystanders could stop him, he had ducked inside the sea of red.

    --
    Peter is forced to fake his own death to save the lives of the people he cares for. Now having to live full-time as Spider-Man, Peter has to watch the recovery of those he left behind, including his fathers Steve and Tony, boyfriend Wade, and Uncle Bruce, the only one allowed to know he is still alive.

    Easier said than done, when you have to bear witness to your own funeral with your family in tears surrounding you.
