    Summary

    Wanda, he knows, more than most, understands that logical reasons do not mean a logical outcome. That is, after all, why she lost her brother. Why she fought for Sergeant Barnes. Why she is, now, locked in the Raft, in a straitjacket, in a collar.

    And, Vision knows, why they locked her in a straitjacket is logical: allowed to move she could level the prison and drown everyone but those she chose to lift to the skies. But, Vision knows, doing this they have not helped her, have not helped themselves. They have harmed her, harmed any likelihood of her fighting at their side ever again, and he … he thinks he hates it, that these two threads of logic should exist side by side and yet be incompatible in the minds of some.

    Summary

    They have scattered bundles of days together. Never more than a week, sometimes as little as two hours. Sometimes they just chat, other times they spend whole days around each other. Affection is easy - for Wanda affection has always been easy with those she trusts, it is just that for almost twenty years the only person she truly trusted was her brother. But she trusts Vision, knows she is safe around him, so he gets affection too, and he seems to return it in equal measure, no more or less than what she offers him.

    Summary

    They remember Steve. They remember him as the golden-and-blue Captain, all that the Nazis and HYDRA were seeking and utterly against them. They remember him as the one who freed friends and family in the camp in the woods, and who freed them from the castle. They remember him as the one who made Peggy hide tears for years when he dove himself into the ice to stop a bombing.

    They remember with crystal clarity the day it happened; the swimming miasma of grief and sorrow in the S.S.R. offices that had almost sent Wanda to their rooms with a migraine.

    All the same they forgive him the pain when they see his mind shining with its own sorrows.

    Summary

    Her scarlet is dancing around her hands, without much direction or guide, but that is how it prefers to be; its own kind of chaos. Wanda looks at the gaping hole on Vision’s brow, sees the fading ruin of his mind and decides I shall not lose this one too.
