    Summary

    Howard invited businessmen over for dinner. Sometimes he would make nice with a media smile, and sometimes he would snarl and threaten. Both were fake. Everything was fake, Tony learned. Everything was a ploy.

    Never trust anyone. That was the first rule Tony learned to live by.

    Tony never followed the rules, not even his own.

    Summary

    "Sorry, May, we can't all be best friends with a celebrity.”

    May opens her mouth to retort reflexively, the words 'we aren’t even friends' on the tip of her tongue before she closes her mouth. Because they are friends, now. They’re way past that point.

    Oh my god, she thinks somewhat hysterically. Tony Stark is my best friend.

    (or; Tony Stark, May Parker, and the road to something like friendship)

    Summary

    “You tried to play both sides,” Laura says calmly, leaning over and plucking at a stray thread hanging off a couch pillow. “But you publicly took a side against my husband. And now he’s not here. I don’t know where he is, but I’m assuming he’s in trouble. And you’re obviously walking away without consequences.”

    Natasha blinks, mouth dry and mind blank. She tries and fails to find words, and Laura lets her sit in silence for so long that it feels almost painful. Natasha squirms and tries not to let her discomfort show, because Laura staying silent like this is her saying so much without saying anything at all. She waits for some sort of gesture -- a hand squeeze, a comforting half-smile -- but nothing comes.

    “Well.” Laura folds her hands in her lap, the biggest show of distance that she can suggest without actually getting up and putting more space between them. “I guess you have to go figure this out, don’t you?”

    Summary

    The last thing Laura Barton expected to find on that sunny Saturday morning in May after her husband had told her he would be there in an hour was opening the front door to find said husband covered in dirt and blood and holding an unconscious redhead in his arms.

    And so went the first time Laura Barton met Natasha Romanoff.
