    Summary

    Before Afghanistan, before New York, and long before Siberia, Tony was given the gift of Peggy Carter as his godmother.

    It was maybe one of the best gifts he ever received, one that kept on giving even forty years later. Because even when the Avengers are scattered, the team and his trust torn apart, there's still one thing Tony has that no one, not Steve, not Ross, not Stane, had ever managed to take from him.

    A family.

    In the aftermath of the Civil War, Tony will need them more than ever if he's to pick up the broken pieces of himself again. And save the world. Of course.

    Summary

    Making a will at eighteen seems incredibly morbid. The lawyer stares at him long and hard the entire time. She acts like he's contagious, like she might catch her death from him or maybe he'll ruin her rug by dropping dead in her office. Steve figures she has nothing to worry about. If anything's going to kill him, it's probably going to be a monster from the Upside Down.

    -

    In which Steve hunts monsters, becomes a deputy, makes a will, and finds a family. Among other things.

    Summary

    Steve is (maybe) a little bit still in love with Nancy Wheeler and (maybe) trying to figure himself out-- between the night terrors and the babysitting and the general weirdness that is Hawkins, Indiana-- before he graduates.

    Billy Hargrove fits in there somewhere (probably).

    Summary

    “Your dad is dying, Billy. Are you really telling me you don’t want to visit him in his final days to say goodbye?”

    “I visit him every Christmas. And I pay a shitload of money for him to be taken care of in a fancy home; that’s more than he deserves-“

    “I know, I know he’s been an asshole, but he’s your father.”

    “-if it were up to me he’d be on the streets. I wanted nothing to do with him after the way he treated you back in Hawkins. I don’t even care anymore that he used to beat the shit out of me, but I’ll never forgive him for laying his hands on you.”

    Or: In 2017, Steve persuades Billy to drive from California to Hawkins to visit a dying Neil Hargrove one last time.
