    Summary

    Toni sees the Chitauri mothership high above her, sees the hundreds and thousands of warships that circle the Earth, and she knows, she knows.

    She thinks, oh, I understand.

    A beat.

    Her hand burns.

    Wow, we are so fucked. 

    She lets the bomb slide out of her hands, watches as it floats towards the mothership, and fire rains down on her, even in the dark, pale, cold hollow of space.

    She laughs, breathlessly, thinks of all the ones who’d loved her the most, and dies.

    Summary

    He’d never pegged himself for an office space kind of guy. He prefers to be out there, in the midst of things with the others—so he spends most of his days doing just that, saving all that bureaucratic bullshit for his lunch breaks in his office trailer.

    He’s heading there now, after a rougher-than-usual morning spent on some stubborn electrical wiring. He thinks of all the other kinds of work waiting for him in his trailer and groans, half-wishing he’d packed a beer with his sandwich today.

    He shields his gaze from the midday sun, and then he turns, and he sees her.

    Summary

    It’s hard to tell at first who it is behind the overgrown shrubbery.

    He’s got a distractingly deep line of sweat trailing down his spine, though, when he comes into view and she finally spots the dark gray Anvil Landscapes logo on his t-shirt.

    Karen takes a moment to appreciate her relief and the soft grunts from his effort in getting the boxwood roots out of the ground. She sips from the diner’s to-go cup in her hand to keep cool. “Hey, Frank.”

    Summary

    “Your Majesty,” Toni inclines her head just a bit to King T’Chaka.

    “Miss Stark,” T’Chaka greets her in return but it’s there again, that hint of scorn, the shadow of Howard looming over her like an omen of misfortune, like the clenched fisted carrion creature he’d been in life.

    “Your Highness,” Toni turns a small nod and a polite smile in T’Challa’s direction. “We haven’t been formally introduc-”

    “I know who you are, Stark,” T’Challa cuts back, obviously uninterested in even the barest hint of diplomacy that his father is still managing to hold onto where she’s concerned. “Your reputation precedes you, just like your father before you.”
