    Summary

    "He knows it," the demon murmurs. "See? He knows. But you don't, do you? He hasn't told you."

    "Come on," Tomas says, raising his voice over it and making himself keep looking at Marcus—who's pale, mouth pressed into a thin flat line, barely meeting Tomas's eyes.

    Summary

    “Watch his eyes,” Oleg had said to Illya, before Illya flew to Berlin. “It’s only hearsay at this point, but we know this much: it’ll be almost impossible to tell, but if you watch the eyes, you’ll know it isn’t a he at all.”

    He knows far before he ever gets a glimpse of Napoleon Solo’s eyes, however, that what he is up against—what has beaten him across the Berlin Wall with prize physicist and roboticist Udo Teller’s daughter in tow—isn’t human.

    Summary

    The cover stories, the obsession; Napoleon has little regard for classical spycraft. The true art, and true accomplishment, comes from staging. Every small piece of an assignment’s mise en scène, arranged in the perfect order to pull off the perfect heist.

    Summary

    Thor is still standing there, beaming expectantly at Sam. “What say you, Son of Wil?” he booms, like he's Aragorn recruiting that ghost army from the Return of the King, except that Thor is just trying to recruit one dude who can maybe talk to birds. (Again: nobody is supposed to know this.) Also Thor’s wearing a baby blue North Face puffer jacket and a woolly reindeer-covered hat that Sam is fifty percent sure was knitted by Vision, so the resemblance to Aragorn is really only a passing one.

    “You want me to do what where again?”

    “I wish for you to join me,” says Thor, with patient magnanimity. “Huginn and Muninn have been missing since the destruction of Asgard. Now that my people have secured a home here on Earth, I wish to find them.”

    (The other summary for this fic is: "oh, SAM")

    Summary

    “Is anyone going to Manhattan?” asks Peter, wandering by forlornly. He’s holding a laptop backpack that is still partially covered in webbing from when he'd stuck it to a wall somewhere. “I have a job interview in an hour.”

    Sam gives Steve a meaningful look.

    Steve sighs. “Hey, kid,” he says, turning to Peter. “I can take you.”

    Even with the mask on, Peter visibly perks up. “It's not too much trouble?”

    “I've got a nap scheduled at 4 p.m. and a sandwich at 6,” says Steve, “but I'll see if I can shift some things around.”

    Summary

    Hal doesn't get along with Bruce, and Bruce doesn't get along with Hal. Just ask either of them.


    “You know, if you’d just let me fly, I’d be too distracted figuring out how fast the batplane really is to keep trying to have a conversation with you,” Hal pointed out.

    Batman snorted. “You’d be trying to do both, which is precisely why I’m never letting you fly it.”

    Summary

    Harry wasn’t at home when the rocket blew up his house because he was in Santiago, watching Chile draw with Bolivia. Afterwards Jack dragged him to a murky bar full of disappointed Chileans still in their red football jerseys, drowning their sorrows with beer and pisco.

    Although Harry was fluent in standard Spanish, Chilean Spanish was completely beyond him, so he drank quietly and tried to keep an eye out for trouble. Since Jack was also in a jersey, only Harry was glaringly out of place, though he had grudgingly forgone a suit jacket in the heat. Still, he couldn’t quite avoid trouble forever, and the crowd was restive.

    When the first soused man staggered over and growled, “American?” Harry put on a careful smile.
