    Summary

    Fuck, he was so drunk.
    So fucking drunk.
    And lost.

     

    Tony was just trying to take a piss and get back to his drunken misery. He wasn't exactly in the mood to find a kid lying crumpled in a pile of trash. He certainly wasn't in the mood to deal with a kid who even while literally lying broken in a pile of garbage has somehow still managed to be the most annoying kid Tony has ever met.

    Summary

    Tony can't get himself back from Siberia, and it takes the night for him to be rescued. While waiting to see if he'll die of hypothermia, he realises something for the first time. It wasn't that he failed because he hadn't tried hard enough. He had failed because he had tried too hard. His so-called team-mates had formed the habit of blaming Tony for everything because he had let them. He had shouldered the blame, let them attack him without consequence, and cleaned up after their mess, all so they could continue to feel self-righteous in peace. But it wasn't just him they were attacking, and saving the world didn't give them a free pass to be the very bullies that Steve claimed to fight against.

    Tony woke up in hospital, still sustained by the relief of his realisation. Things sucked, but they would get better. He was Tony Stark, and no challenge was too much for him. It was odd how much easier it was to plot when he actually did intend ways to manipulate the ex-Avengers into falling in line. And since that was what they seemed convinced he was doing all along, they didn't deserve a warning that it would now be true.

    Summary

    Later, T'Challa would remember it like a blur. He couldn’t say if he screamed or not, nor if he gestured. He did remember running, and the awful realization that, though he tried with all his might, he wouldn’t make it in time. The helplessness he felt, that shiver of it, was something that was shocking in its darkness, because for all that T'Challa had fought, for all he had struggled, for all he had learned, and for all he had gained, he was still too slow.

    BOOM. Just that. A thunderous boom and T'Challa's world changed.

    *

    In which Tony saves T'Chaka, T'Challa is grateful, and they both are all the better for it.
