    Summary

    Sharon Carter expected to pull a gun in the line of duty. She didn’t expect to pull it here. SHIELD was her holy ground.

    --

    Some aunts take you to mass, but Sharon’s took her to the shooting range.

    When Sharon finally met Captain Rogers, she was almost startled at his size. She’d read the comics, sure, but to Sharon, who had heard all the stories (and to Peggy, who had told them), Steve Rogers would always be 5’4” and breakable, had always been a hero.

    Her mother had told her bedtime stories about Aunt Peggy saving the world. Her aunt had told her stories about a skinny kid who hated bullies, and a crew of wisecracking soldiers who followed his lead—about Steve and Bucky and all the Howling Commandos out to save the day and chase away each of Sharon’s nightmares.

    Her father told her stories about talking elephants and singing mice who built treehouses together.

    Sharon carried all of those with her, into the lies of pink nurses' scrubs and the chaos of SHIELD's fall, into everything that came afterwards.

    But this came first.

    Spider-Man always hit the attempted rapists the hardest.

    This was not due to some kind of personal connection.

    It wasn't.

    Summary

    Nico is used to one night stands. What he isn't used to is the way this stranger, who clearly doesn't understand the fundamental principles of ONE NIGHT, keeps bumping into him. And he definitely isn't used to the fact that he's starting to really enjoy it. Piper says it's fate, but Nico doesn't believe in fate. If he did, he would have to seriously think about what it's trying to tell him about Will Solace.
