    Summary

    Gamora was falling.

    The sky broke grey and vast above her. She twisted in the air, feeling in her every pocket and pouch for some sort of weapon-- a gun, a penknife, a plastic spork-- maybe if she died before she hit ground, it wouldn’t count.

    Everything was gone. She scratched at her neck but her fingernails were short and blunt. Her throat was numb in the freezing air. She slammed at what should have been one of the most fragile parts of the body, but her esophagus and windpipe had been replaced with sturdier things long ago.

    The wind was shrieking, and she was yelling, throwing all her breath away, but all the same she could hear them perfectly.

    The red demon said, “You will regret it.”

    “No,” Thanos said. She clawed at her throat and did not stop trying to die, all through the long fall.

    He will, said a voice in her ear. Regret.

    Gamora spat out against the wind, through her bruising throat and her fucking indestructible windpipe, “That’s one cold--”

     

     

    “--comfort,” Gamora finished and the word echoed into the sudden silence.

    No, not silence.

    Gamora opened her eyes.

    Summary

    In which the Avengers discover the video footage of Tony testing the Iron Man armor, and that goes about as well as it could be expected. Steve Rogers attempts to make peace with his lover's rather cavalier attitude to his health and safety, and starts learning more about Tony's family along the way, both the one he was born into, and the one he's chosen. And, of course, the one that's chosen him.

    Subtitled: It's all Clint's fault. No one is surprised.

    Didn't realize until rereading how much this influences how I see Tony, but it really does. Pepper's ruthlessness is clear here, too, and there's a good bit of Rhodey. And of course the whole series is excellent too.

    So many Pepperony headcanons of mine come from this fic and I didn't even know it. Excellent detailing of Pepper and Tony that doesn't ignore their flaws or their strengths. (Also, really notes how awful Obie was for Tony throughout his life and how that can damage someone).
