Stiles unpins one of the postcards. Accra, Ghana. One corner is torn, but that's not too bad—African mail systems are unreliable at best, nonexistent at worst. Stiles flips it over. On the back, there’s the same thing he wrote on all of them: Be home soon ♡ Stiles.
“We need to have a serious conversation about the definition of ‘soon,’” Derek says behind him.

The happiest day of your life is when you realize that your soulmate is still alive.
The worst day of your life is when he speaks to you.
“Big man in a suit of armour? Take that off, and what are you?”
“Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist.”

Tony can see Steve's soulmark under his left collarbone; it's a circle, with lines going out from it, twisting and turning. It looks like a sun with a dark, yet vibrant, blue color. Tony looks over at Bucky, staring briefly at his right upperarm, where he knows the exact same sun will be hiding under the longsleeved shirt he is wearing.
Tony takes his coffe and goes to his workshop, saying something about a new device to his helmet to the rest of the team in the room.
He ignores the burn right between his shoulderblades, where a blue sun is hiding.

Natasha presses her hand over her heart, and – Tony has heard rumors, that her skin is blank, or that she killed her other half, but he doesn’t believe them. “They deserve to know, don’t you think?”
He looks at the sleeping supersoldiers in his hospital room, thinks of going to bed safe and surrounded and waking up when it’s already light out, when the first pot of coffee is already cold, waking up to Steve’s bedhead and the body-warmed metal of Bucky’s prosthetic hand, waking up whole.
“They’ve been together for ninety years, Nat,” he says. “They’re practically married. There’s no room for me.”
