    Summary

    Hoodie-guy stops in front of Steve just as he snaps, “FINE, I want to bang Tony Stark like a screen door in a hurricane, could we drop it now?”

    “UM,” Sam says, loud enough that they both turn to look at him. He’s wide-eyed as he jerks his head meaningfully, gestures getting looser and more pointed as they continue not to get it.

    Steve stares at him. This is why Sam is never picked for a partner when they all play Charades.

    There’s a tap on his shoulder, and Steve turns to see Hoodie-guy smiling. Steve opens his mouth to say do you need something when he realizes why the man’s face is so familiar.

    “Hi,” says Tony Stark.

    Steve blurts the first thing he thinks. “Fuck.”

    Summary

    Natalia is stacking blocks very carefully when the adults come into the room. None of them look at her, because they're all looking at her father. He's wearing combat gear, and the hair on the left side of his head is slicked back with blood. He smells like smoke and something unnameable, sweet and dark and a little sickly in her nose.

    Father is saying, “Don't be ridiculous. The only thing children are good at is disobeying.”

    Summary

    The Wise Man teaches him sometimes if he catches Steve puttering around the woods: how to read the trees and the moss, when to listen to the birds and when it’s better to leave their advice untaken. He teaches Steve about the bears and why you’re never supposed to call them by their real name; tells him grittier and truer stories about the woodsfolk than the old ladies in the village.

    “Bear no ill will for the woodsfolk,” the Wise Man tells him. “Washer hags will tell you to never drink from a forest-dweller’s cup, but if you’ve always treated Tapio’s court with respect, they will remember it.” He watches Steve with a critical eye; an old man with his long beard and ragged clothes, bird bones and animal teeth in his pockets. Then he pokes Steve’s chest with one bony finger. “You carry the woods with you, son,” he says. “Don’t fear them. Let them invite you in, when they’re ready.”
