extra:depression   34

IRL And All Realities
The first time he picked up Gryffindor's sword he had been young and terrified. The second time he fumbled the hilt, he had still been young and he had still been terrified. The third time? He was not much older and no more prepared for the world he had just entered, nor for the enemy he will face in order to win this twisted game of life and death.

Eddie doesn’t do well when he thinks the symbiote died in the fire.

 

He doesn’t tell Dan that suicide is the reason he’s in this mess in the first place. He didn’t go to the Golden Gate Bridge to throw Anne’s engagement ring into the water, he went there to throw himself but got distracted by Dr. Skirth’s messages and justice against Drake instead.

The One the Battles Always Choose
Eddie thinks a lot about ways to die. He always has. It's fine.

Except Anne doesn't agree with that assessment, and neither does Venom. (Dan mostly just wants Eddie to go a week without being hospitalized for any reason at all.)

Tony misses Steve very badly after the Accords. Some days he deals with it better than other days.

(a fic featuring the booty call flip phone, minor kidnappings, and time jumps between chapters because the election has been happening and my brain has been too mush to make a proper plot)

Tony Stark is twenty-one when he loses his voice. It shouldn't matter, but in a world where the first words your Soulmate says to you are marked on your skin, it can be pretty damn annoying.

So It's Going
They managed to win the game somehow. He's not really sure of the details, but it's not all it's cracked up to be. He's stuck in an unfamiliar body with a thirteen year old little brother who's terrified of him.

Somehow, he is sure this is his fault.

Growing up on a flying meteor is hard work. You know this from experience.

TG: dude what is this piece of shit you just sent me

CG: IT’S A FUCKING LOVE STORY, DAVE.

Well, it's a bit more than that.

Bucky had been treated like a thing for decades. It shouldn’t be a surprise that he’d learned to see other people that way.

Bucky's years as the Winter Soldier have stunted his empathy so badly that Steve's not sure Bucky is capable of emotional connection anymore. But Steve keeps trying anyway, and Bucky is happy to take advantage of that.
P.S. THIS!! this is how i think Bucky would act after years of dehumanizing torture. he wouldn't be a soft fluffy puppy. he would be high functioning sociopath. who needs to be loved. by steve.

But Steve was fine.

Sure, he hadn’t seen Bucky in months, and sometimes he was at the punching bag so long that his skin started to peel off to expose the bones of his fingers, and sometimes he couldn’t find the energy to drag himself out of bed, and sometimes he went weeks without sleeping, and sometimes he thought about throwing himself head-first off the nearest tall structure, but he was fine.

He was absolutely, perfectly, one-hundred percent, fucking fine.

AKA
In which Steve learns how to deal with his shit, and Bucky learns how to stop leaving.

Sequelae
The truth is, Sherlock's coming apart at the seams. He needs—he needs, but they can't all dance.

The truth is, they need just as much, just as desperately. The truth is, he hides far too well, and they're clever, they are, but they're blind: they're not him.

And the truth is: John and Mary don't see until it may be too damned late.



Episode Spoilers for 3.02: The Sign of Three.
