    Summary

    Tony can't get himself back from Siberia, and it takes the night for him to be rescued. While waiting to see if he'll die of hypothermia, he realises something for the first time. It wasn't that he failed because he hadn't tried hard enough. He had failed because he had tried too hard. His so-called team-mates had formed the habit of blaming Tony for everything because he had let them. He had shouldered the blame, let them attack him without consequence, and cleaned up after their mess, all so they could continue to feel self-righteous in peace. But it wasn't just him they were attacking, and saving the world didn't give them a free pass to be the very bullies that Steve claimed to fight against.

    Tony woke up in hospital, still sustained by the relief of his realisation. Things sucked, but they would get better. He was Tony Stark, and no challenge was too much for him. It was odd how much easier it was to plot when he actually did intend ways to manipulate the ex-Avengers into falling in line. And since that was what they seemed convinced he was doing all along, they didn't deserve a warning that it would now be true.

    Summary

    As soon as Dick hears the crack, he knows Damian’s broken something. The boy – stubborn, stupid boy, Dick thinks, fond – tries to walk on what Dick guesses is a broken ankle, apparently testing out the severity of the injury, his face twisted in obvious pain. It’s not until a grunt of low agony escapes him that he resentfully stops, and leans against the alley wall whilst trying to look like he's doing anything but.

    Dick resists the urge to bury his face in his hands as he catches sight of the defiant set of Damian’s mouth and the tense slope of his shoulders. This… is going to be difficult.
