So they called you in," Tony says. He stands close, a little too close for comfort, in fact, given what Peter now knows about him. "Billions of miles away, and they thought you could come here and talk me down. Wow, they're really getting desperate, aren't they?"

No more humans, he thinks, crossing another name off the list. It's getting depressingly short.

Hear You Me - sara_holmes - The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“I need you to hear me,” Bucky says to Steve's sleeping form, voice thick. “If you’re dreaming in there, come on out here and listen because I need you to hear me. Steve, I’m – I don’t think I’m dead. Not all the way dead, anyway. And I need you to come and find me. All those times I found you in alleys, all beat to hell – just like the time you found me in the Hydra Base, I need you to do it one last time.”

After falling from the train, Bucky finds himself not-quite-dead and not-quite-alive. He's not sure which state of affairs is more painful.

you'll always be my thunder - tomorrows - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Louis doesn't let himself think about it. He doesn't think of The List or LA or the cobblestone streets he knows like the back of his hand by now. He ignores the way the sun reflects off the gold band on his finger and decidedly puts on the peppiest, most sickeningly upbeat tunes on his phone. The sound of Anne's voice was enough for him, he thinks. Now it's just a matter of coping. He wonders if he's got the strength to ignore the pain in his chest for that long, until the end of his life, he presumes.

Based on tags where a two-year long zombie apocalypse finally comes to an end and Louis and Harry don't know if the other's survived.

"Shots for everyone! On me!" Harry roars, shockingly loud, and suddenly they're in the middle of a crowd, everyone watching, laughing, shotglasses in hand, the bartender frantically pouring out whatever he can. Harry is preening under the attention, lifting Louis' hand to his mouth and dragging his tongue over the web between thumb and forefinger. Louis resists the urge to jerk away when Harry delicately puts salt over the skin, yells, "To us! To Japan!" and- of course- everyone screams it back at him.

Ask Tony how he's doing on any given day and he'll either give you a somewhat puzzled, somewhat wary look, or he'll smile brightly, instantly lighting up. Either way, the answer is the same. Fine, I'm fine.

Most of the time, it's even true. [Tony is doing just fine. Until he's not. Steve notices.]

assume a defensive stance - hoosierbitch - The Avengers (2012), Marvel Avengers Movies Universe [Archive of Our Own]
The first time Bruce had complimented Clint—really complimented him, trying to explain how deep his feelings went—Clint had laughed and conceded that he believed that Bruce believed it, as if Bruce was some delusional person, in love—in like—with an imaginary, invented version of Clint. Bruce had flipped out on him a bit, protesting and insisting, trying to convince Clint of something that—he realized later—maybe Clint was hearing for the first time. [Clint has some issues and of all people, Bruce is the one that's there.]

All her life Pepper has liked, wherever possible, to sleep in the dark. It took her a good few months to get used to the glow of Tony's arc reactor. She knows it took him just as long. And in the aftermath of New York, of his stupid self-sacrificing suicidal stunt with a nuclear bomb, she has never seen anything as lovely as that unwavering blue light painting (his face) (her own skin) (lighting his eyes) (lighting her face, her face he loves to watch when they make love) the walls and ceiling of their bedroom.

Held In Our Hands - icarus_chained
Robotics was not Bruce's field. Not by a long shot. But even he understood the sheer depth of complexity JARVIS must have, to be able to do the things he did. To be able to register, understand, and formulate plans for the environment around him. To be able to conceptualise human thought-processes, emotions, foibles, to a level that the AI could interact with them on a footing indistinguishable from a human's. To be able to react with a sense of personhood, identity and ego that, to be honest, almost matched Tony's own, if in a vastly more understated manner. [Bruce, JARVIS and Tony, and what power means.]

The Evaluation Process - sinemoras09
"This is the only way I can protect you," Tony says. "If people think you're human, they won't hunt you down. They won't tear apart your insides just to see how you work. Because trust me when I say this, they're too stupid to figure it out. They'd only break you."

Skynet. HAL 9000. VIKI. Iconic AIs, menacing and threatening toward human kind. JARVIS was bigger than all of them. His eyes swing back up to the monitor, and at the long, drawn lines of Tony's face.

""Just think of it as a way to get around," Tony says, quietly. "See the world on your own terms: my last gift to you." [Tony dies. JARVIS tries to cope.]

FIC: bait [Avengers, Clint/Natasha, oneshot]
He says nothing, but for a second his eyes plead with her—don’t do this. There’s pain there, and reserve too, but something else as well, something that looks a bit like longing and way too much like devotion. She wants to wipe it off with her blood-stained fingers, wants to tear it out of him. Until he knows better. Until he understands that she isn’t worth it. [Basically Clint and Natasha angrily and violently spar out their sexually-related issues.]

Words In Crystal - Fic: Right Where I Used To Be (The Avengers, Clint/Natasha
At thirty-four and nearing his ninth year at S.H.I.E.L.D, he’s technically the senior agent in their partnership but Natasha’s never felt like anything other his equal. That, however, doesn’t mean she can’t tease him about it.[They've been partners for just over a year and six months when S.H.I.E.L.D records declare Natasha to be twenty-one, and Clint asks her to join him for a drink.Clint laughs.]

Everyone's lost but me! - Avengers fic: The Bad Night (Clint/Natasha)
The adrenaline rush—the before and the after—that was the thing. Oh, sure, your first time killing someone (goat herder or Bad Man) you vomited, but that was just biology. Ever seen someone's insides? It's disgusting. And if you kill someone, you're going to see their insides. Those neat little red holes you see on TV, they wouldn't put down a dog. No, you gotta have the red mist, gotta have the blood splatter. And that's just the liquid component. Solids go too, all chopped up like a smoothie, dribbling out and running off the splatter and just getting everywhere. But once you're used to that—it gets very simple. [They trained Clint for missions that went bad. Adaptation, evasion, escape. They just never taught him how to live when innocent people had died. That was more Natasha's specialty.]

Compromised - Koren M (CyberMathWitch) - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]

Clint always thought better while driving, when he wasn’t having to watch so many things quite so intensely. So after replaying what he could remember about the time the world had been tinged blue, which he would only allow while Tasha was awake beside him, he’d finally brought himself back around to their conversation once she’d drifted off to sleep. "I’ve been compromised,” she’d said softly. [in which it's actually explained why she feels as such]

Bob5 - I'm Making Eyes at You (Black Widow/Hawkeye; One-shot)
Even despite their intimate relationship, Natasha feels cold and detached. Always operating under total control, every assurance of affection seems shallow and plastic. Clint tries to work through it, but after all that training Natasha really can't let go.

So he cheats on her. He takes a lover that responds to his touch without calculation, who really lets him know how they feel, whose sweet murmurs seem genuine. He does it partly to fill the cold ache of loneliness, but partly to test if Natasha really feels anything for him at all.

It breaks her heart.
