    Tony has always considered the phrase "Keep your hands to yourself" more of a suggestion than a hard rule.

    Summary

    “You know, kids,” Steve heard from the backyard, “one of the most common threats a superhero has to face is inside an active volcano! We’re going to have to work on your evasion skills, so for the next five minutes, the floor is lava!” This was met by a sudden spike in both volume and pitch from the small children as they scrambled onto every raised surface they could find and immediately launched themselves right back off.

    “I’ve never seen actual lava in my entire life,” Steve said, vaguely offended.

    “You got a superhero impersonator for The Falcon’s niece’s birthday party,” Sam said, incredulous. “The Falcon, who is an actual superhero.”

    Summary

    “Holy shit,” Howard says, crackling through the speakers. “You alive in there?” Lying is a sin, of course, but Steve’s not sure what else he can do. He’s already lied to the government and Bucky and God Almighty; and himself, himself most of all. He ought to tell the truth. That he’s not quite what they hoped for. That perhaps they should put him back into the ocean.

    “Probably,” he says, instead, listening to Howard’s tinny laughter; and waits for the blast doors to unlock.

    Summary

    "Post-action tacos?” Tony suggested. “I’m thinking that place by Fordham. BattleBot, you in?”

    “Can’t,” the Soldier said, typing something into his phone. “I have a date.”

    Tony stopped talking for an entire three seconds. “You. Have a date.”

    The Soldier looked up and blinked, clearly nonplussed to find Sam and Tony both staring at him. “Yes.”

    “With who?”

    “My boyfriend.”

    “You have a boyfriend. You have a boyfriend?” Tony looked like he’d just walked into a lamppost, and then the lamppost had handed him a birthday present.
