    Summary

    Tony bit down a shiver, trying to ignore the scratch of the tag on the inside of his waist cincher and the ache of his knees on the cold marble floor. The silk stockings his mother had assured him were the best didn’t offer much insulation.

    He and the other omegas had been waiting for an hour now. After a frenzied morning of hair and makeup, of untangling and adjusting straps, of hopeful and conflicted just-in-case goodbyes, their nervous anxiety was slowly wilting into despair. What if the guardian never showed up? This was Tony’s last chance, and he was willing to bet he wasn’t the only one staring down a lifetime of traditional servitude if today didn’t go well.

    Summary

    One of the main things that made alphas and omegas different was that alphas were top of the hierarchy.

    That's how it had been for a long time, and omegas were always the bottom, due to their...deformities, usually in the form of a tail and ears.

    According to tradition, the first omega was caused by inbreeding, and from there it got worse. More omegas appeared, with even more deformities, and that was when the government began to attempt to get rid of them. Omegas hid, and at some point, alphas began to use them as pets, even going so far as to breed them and sell them and even to experiment on them. Many omegas were abused and mistreated, but even more were happy with their alphas, accompanying them everywhere. Not to mention, a lot of society didn't care much about omegas. They were just freaks and objects used for entertainment, and occasionally company but a lot of them eventually ended up in shelters.

    Summary

    He worked with the Winter Soldier more than he ever did the Red Halo, and it always shocked him how similar yet different the two were. They were both referred to simply as ‘Asset’ but served very different purposes. As one agent had once eloquently put, the Winter Soldier was made for destruction, while the Red Halo was made for seduction. The Soldier was dead-eyed, only ever showing occasional anger and confusion. His movements were deliberate, terrifying. His body always seemed tense, fingers twitching for a weapon. There was nothing about him that didn’t scream of a caged animal, dangerous and destructive. The Halo… he was almost the complete opposite. He always seemed to be wearing an easy smile, posture loose and pliant. He swung his hips when he walked, bit his lip, and had other small ticks. He didn’t shy from eye contact, and always seemed to be leaning toward whoever else was in the room. He seemed free and easy going, ready to have his tongue down your throat if you so much as asked. Yet they were the same, really. Two men, broken by HYDRA programming, forced into being a malleable form to be shaped to HYDRA’s needs. They had no real identity, no real soul. After all, they were just Assets, not real people.

    Summary

    The only reason Tony was at a bar, shot glass in hand, was to void the contract Howard was trying to force on him. Tony would like to see him explain how Tony had violated one of the more important clauses of the contract when Tony walked in reeking of an Alpha who wasn't the one he was supposed to mate.
