    Summary

    The restraints will hold. Matt has a hard time picking out different sounds against the background of hospital rush at the best of times, the faint creak of wheels and the electric hum of monitoring devices and the endless restless quiet, but he can hear the straps and the cuffs, the sticky shift of the plastic ties at Frank’s wrists — the sticky shift of the bones in Frank’s foot — the way that Frank’s breathing catches just a little, wet, on every exhale, on the blood in the back of his throat. Once Matt notices, he can’t help but listen.

    Summary

    He wants — “What if,” Karen says, and there’s a speculative note in her voice, “what if I just — kept going, would you like that,” and Matt realizes — to be held down, and to not need to worry about what he says, and whether he asks or not, but to be given what he wants until he’s sore and shaking and beyond words. That’s what he wants.

    “Yeah,” Karen says, and smooths her hand up his side until her palm is flat over his heart. “Yeah.”

    Summary

    Gamora has spent a great deal of her life angry at a lot of people, for more or less justified reasons: Thanos with a bone-deep banked roar, and Ronan more intensely, but less deeply; Nebula, now, with an anger born of sorrow, and a hundred hundred men without whom the universe would be better off. She has killed bad men and good men and men who were simply in the way. This — anger, she supposes, at a friend — is completely alien to her, and more insistent than anything she’s felt before, like an itch beneath her skin, or the gravity well of a black hole. She can’t shake it off, no matter what. It makes her want to shout at Peter, but not until he acquiesces: instead, she wants him to shout back, to engage, instead of evading, the way he always does. She wants—

    Gamora realizes what she wants, suddenly, and she almost misses a step.

    Summary

    “Please,” Matt says, and the tension is back in his shoulders. He flexes his fingers, closes his eyes and takes a deep breath, and none of it helps. “It’s just been a bad day, and I — I don’t know, Claire — I just.” He tries to find words, and fails, and says instead, far more brusquely than he would like: “I need something to do. Just something simple, anything, but you have to tell me.”

    “Like what?” Claire says. “Do my backlog of dishes? Get all the laundry off that one chair in my room? Hang up my scrubs?” She sounds more confused than incredulous now. “I know your thing is being cryptic, but this is taking that to a whole new level.” Her heartbeat is picking up a little, though, so she has to be picking up on what he’s asking for, at least a little, and Matt shrugs.

    “I was hoping for something a little more authoritative,” he admits, voice dropping.

    Summary

    There is, of course, some irony in it being fire.

    He smells the smoke — of course he does — but this is Hell’s Kitchen, and there’s always the faint possibility of burning rubber or someone’s engine overheating, the sudden puff of heat from under the hood, and Matt has grown used to tuning these things out as he sleeps.

    Summary

    Vanessa — yes, she asks him at first, in the morning, when she is still tangled in her sheets (cotton, but with a sufficiently high thread count that it isn’t as much of a sensory issue as it could be) and he is dressing for the day, before she rises in a fall of fabric and fixes his tie, laying her hands flat on his chest as he goes instinctively still — is the one who brings it up, of all the women of great beauty and what Matt would prefer to call distinct character who Matt has allowed into his heart and his life. She is naked, head to toe, without her customary earrings (a click on the dresser) or the powder she usually wears (faintly scented, and the brush is not synthetic), and she runs a painted nail lightly along the dip of his cupid’s bow, and says: “Matthew, have you ever considered how you would look in lipstick?”

    Summary

    For a good person, Matthew Murdock takes to darkness like someone slipping into their proper skin for the first time.

    That might be what itches at Wesley the most. It would be one thing if Matt were bad at it; if he hated it, failed them in thought or word or deed, then Wesley’s stomach wouldn’t curl so, and he might just be able to work with Matt without wanting, unremittingly and on an hourly basis, to break his nose just to see how it would sound. Instead, Matt is perfect.

    Summary

    “No,” Foggy had said, “bear with me — nobody’s going to make you do anything, Matt. I mean, you don’t have to wait, or not—“ he’d gestured in the air “—touch yourself, or move, but. If you do, if you can stay on that bed until we’re done, and if you wait, if you listen and you’re good for us, well.” And he’d laughed silently, a forceful exhale that Matt remembered to be paired with a disproportionately smug grin.

    Summary

    “This is going to hurt,” she says, and presses against the bruise firmly with two fingers. Matt makes a noise, choked-off in his throat, and she can almost see him focusing and suppressing a reflexive recoil.

    Summary

    “You’re bleeding,” Fitz says idly. He’s splintered across five different screens right now, two of which are hanging in front of his eyes and making him see everything double. Not on purpose, but it’s not his fault he can’t reprogram his eyes to move independently. Simmons could, probably, but that’s not a topic he’s particularly enthusiastic about broaching. She would probably change her mind halfway through and add a few extra lenses or something, and enhanced vision isn’t exactly something he’s a huge fan of at the moment. Enough artificial eyes nearly blowing your fingers off can do that, and in this case “enough” means one.

    Summary

    The word for James Buchanan Barnes was not vivacious — full of life, and admittedly true, but still. The word for him was voracious. Of course, what’s a letter or three between friends?

    Summary

    “Some girls like that, you know,” he confided.

    “The Mother Superior?” Steve said, confusion writ large across his face.

    “Nah,” Bucky said, emphatically not thinking about that. “Choking. Just like they like hair-pulling.”

    Summary

    When Darcy hears about the Battle of Manhattan, the first thing she does is laugh for about ten minutes solid into her pillow.

    “You missed the Battle of Manhattan,” Jane says on the phone. “Oh my god, I can’t believe we’re friends.”

    (In which Darcy meets Bruce, and then they actually sort of figure out what they're doing, but not really, because this is Darcy and Bruce we're talking about here.)

    Summary

    “You were both born to be kings,” Odin the Allfather says to them, two children bright with hope, torches in the vaults, smiling the unreserved smile of those who know they are loved.

    Summary

    It’s a smoky, gritty dive bar, the sort you only find when you’re actually looking for somewhere disreputable, and the sort that usually turns out to be quite reputable in its own way after all. Clint stumbles into it accidentally on purpose.

    “What's your name,” Clint says, adding a little belatedly, “I’m Clint.”

    “Bruce,” the man says, and reaches forward to pluck the cigarette from Clint’s fingertips. He takes a deep pull, then purses his lips - Clint gets a little distracted - and blows a smoke ring; it’s a little crooked, maybe a little smudgy around the edges, but still.

    Summary

    “Take off the suit, what are you?” Steve Rogers says, angry, close.

    “Genius billionaire playboy philanthropist,” he says, and it’s true, every word, even if he might have twisted the truth just a little. But then that’s what he does, isn’t it.

    Summary

    There’s a snort, and Darcy can’t tell if it’s schadenfreude or laughter, but either way, pretty cool, because she made the Black Widow amused.

    Now she has to figure out how to do it without stripping her stomach lining.

     

    So Plath, she who was responsible for the Clint/Darcy, somehow finagled me into writing Darcy/Natasha. She has this way. Don't ask.

    Summary

    “I’ve been compromised,” she says. Her eyes are huge and dark; he doesn’t look away.

    Natasha and Clint share a moment (or more, where did that figure of speech come from?), and by "moment" I mean bodily fluids, and by "share a moment" I mean fuck. I think I just lost control of my summary.
