    Summary

    Tony jarred forward as the car swerved. His gasp was swallowed by Howard’s furious and startled bellow as the man cranked the wheel. A pitched sound escaped Maria.

    Tony grunted as the car slammed into a tree. The shadows of leaves and branches rained down on the car.

    Tony pushed himself up, only for his seatbelt to pin him into place. Tony found his buckle’s release button and pushed. “Mom!”

    The front passenger door was ripped off the car. An arm reached into the car and Maria was yanked out of the car like a ragdoll.

    A tall, male figure in dark colors aimed a glock at Howard’s head. The dark made most of the fine details of the man impossible to see; however, Tony would have to be blind to miss the white, luminous, and most certainly not human eyes the man possessed.

    Those eyes shifted to Tony. The eerie gaze paralyzed Tony.

    Tony wanted to have a relaxing and fun winter break. Even more so, he wanted to make his mom happy by visiting her, even if it meant having to put up with his baffling and curmudgeon of father. His time with his family is cut short when they are attacked. Tony finds himself embroiled in the world of Fae and a deadly power struggle.

    Summary

    Jim opened Tony's most formal closet and started pulling out tuxedos. "Put one of these on.”

    "Why?"

    "We're getting married."

    Tony froze. "No, we're not."

    "Oh yes we are." Jim tossed three tuxedos onto the bed. Three was a good number of options, enough for Tony to make a choice, but not so many that he'd get lost analyzing the ramifications of navy pinstripes vs. charcoal paisley. Tony did best with clear, specific expectations rather than an unlimited universe of possibilities that he would inevitably filter through his neuroses and obsess over, and Jim was really kicking himself for not considering that, oh, ten years ago when they’d first started this, but there was no point in beating himself up about it now when he could put that energy towards solving the problem instead. "You brought this on yourself, Tones. Pick a damn tux."

    Summary

    Later, T'Challa would remember it like a blur. He couldn’t say if he screamed or not, nor if he gestured. He did remember running, and the awful realization that, though he tried with all his might, he wouldn’t make it in time. The helplessness he felt, that shiver of it, was something that was shocking in its darkness, because for all that T'Challa had fought, for all he had struggled, for all he had learned, and for all he had gained, he was still too slow.

    BOOM. Just that. A thunderous boom and T'Challa's world changed.

    *

    In which Tony saves T'Chaka, T'Challa is grateful, and they both are all the better for it.
