    Summary

    “This is so cool,” Tony says, awestruck, sticking his hand in and out of the hologram, which he’s only ever seen on cartoons. “Are there other pictures?” Tony asks, staring. “Hey! What do I look like? When I’m old?”

    “I’m older than you are normally, and I’m getting a little offended you keep calling us old,” Mr. Rhodey says, and Tony simply raises his eyebrows. Mr. Rhodey can not deny that he’s old.

    Summary

    Tony’s face hardens as he says, “What kid.”
    “I don’t know, some twelve year old—”
    Below him, the kid coughs out, “Fifteen.”
    “—Fifteen year old—”
    Tony scrubs a hand across his face. “Don’t tell me he’s wearing a dorky shirt with a chemistry pun on it.”
    Rhodey frowns. That was oddly specific. Glancing down, he looks at what little he can see of the kid’s shirt—which isn't much since there’s so much blood now, but what could be once called a cartoon joke is printed on it. “Um, yeah?”
    “Son of a bitch.”

     

    Otherwise known as how Rhodey finds out about how old Peter is, and how badly he needs to beat Tony with a stick.

    ... and one time he did not.

    Summary

    Keith has a lot of practice being alone; you might almost say he's good at it. When he finds himself seriously injured and stranded on an unknown planet, he knows he's not alone there. And here's the worst part: even after rescue and after things return to normal, Keith gets the distinct sense that whatever was on that planet has followed him. He doesn't have proof. But he knows it's there. He knows it's not going to stop until it gets what it wants.

    Summary

    Keith thought he’d passed the Trials of Marmora, but when he approaches Kolivan looking for information about his mother, he learns there are four more Trials to pass before he can call himself a Blade.

    Kolivan, Antok, and Thace watch as Keith undertakes the remainder of his Trials, and they remember their own Trials—a grueling ordeal from which no one emerges unchanged. They cannot aid him in the Trials, but they can help him prepare, and they can help him through the aftermath. After all, the Blades are kin, and kin does not let kin suffer alone.

    One part Dads of Marmora, one part Kolivan introspective.
