    Summary

    After Afghanistan and Iron Man, SHIELD gave Tony a choice. He could out himself as Iron Man, or claim it was a bodyguard, and hide his face from the world.

    Agent Agent never said anything, but Tony had hacked SHIELD's servers and knew they wanted him to go the bodyguard route. Yes to Iron Man and no to Tony Stark, and all that.

    That, as well as keeping Pepper safe, made him go with the bodyguard cover, and flimsy as he thought it was, no one questioned it.

    Of course, why would they? Tony Stark was no superhero.

    Although, it's less easy to keep a secret identity with a bunch of superheroes and spies living in your house.

    Summary

    When Mycroft finally finds out what Gregory Lestrade's doing to support himself post-Reichenbach, he tells himself it's only professional interest. He will need to log into SilverFox to offer the surreptitious financial support he feels is appropriate after his brother essentially ruined Gregory's life. Surprisingly enough, he finds himself unable to resist, and the line between professional and personal interest blurs almost immediately.

    Summary

    They move on, because they have to. Because the world still needs saving, because they’ve all lost people they’ve loved, because it’s what Phil would have wanted. They move on, because it is what they are supposed to do. They are super heroes, SHIELD agents, defenders of the Earth, protectors of the weak, and they cannot stop to grieve.

    The memorial for Agent Phil Coulson is well attended. Clint and Natasha stand in the back. They do not take off their sunglasses.

    ---

    Fury rubs his temples. “Alright. Fine. As much as I hate to say it, it's actually a relief to be able to tell you.” he says. “Agent Coulson is alive.”

    "Are you going to tell us where, or do I have to hack it out of you?” Tony snipes.

    Fury ignores Tony, “A SHIELD safe house in Portland. I’ll give you the address. But only Clint can go.”

    “Why only Clint?” Natasha demands.

    “Because,” and Fury sighs deeply, and sadly, “Clint is the only one he still remembers.”

    Summary

    Sixty years is a long time to sleep--even for an immortal, and most especially if you’re not the immortal doing the sleeping.

    It's 1862, and a demon has finally woken up.


    “Stay with me, Crowley,” Aziraphale pleaded, his eyes glistening. “I’ve missed you so terribly, and there’s really no reason for you to go, is there?”

    “You’ve what?” Crowley stared at him, gaping stupidly at that crumpled face. Aziraphale’s grip on his wrists didn’t slacken in the slightest, and he pulled Crowley closer without seeming to genuinely try.

    Summary

    A few weeks after the Apocalypse is averted, a winged mug starts a long-overdue conversation about Crowley’s habit of giving Aziraphale angel-themed presents.


    “So long as they make you happy, angel.” Crowley raised his glass to the lamps and drank deep. “That’s all they were meant to do in the first place.”

    “The dancing naked angel lamps were meant to make me happy.” It seemed improbable; Aziraphale could remember the mischief lurking in Crowley’s eyes when he’d undone the twine holding the packages together.

    “Well, meant to make you stop squinting at your books by candle-light like an impoverished clerk in a Dickens novel, anyway.”
