When the panes are dim - queerly_it_is - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
At this hour, the cryo chamber gives off the only real light in the room, a soft and circular glow like firelight. With the staff gone and the workstations dark, the walls and the ceiling look flung out, further away from where Steve sits on a padded bench at the edge of the light, where the shadows are fending for themselves.

“We ought to get some music in here,” he says, like Bucky’s going to answer, or like he’s in a coma and still listening in some little corner of himself. “I don’t know how much new stuff you’ve even heard. Some of it’s not so bad. Maybe that’d give you and Sam something else to argue about.”

Even talking in here is uncomfortable now, especially when the place is empty and Steve could convince himself he’s the only person awake in the entire building. His voice comes back too large and hollow off the gloomy walls. It’s starting to feel like praying.

Fault Lines - lucymonster - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"Look kid," says the proprietor, "you seem nice. But I run a solid business here. I need people I can trust." Every elite security agency in the world wants a shot at him, and he can’t fucking beg his way into a menial job throwing drunks out of a strip club.

Or: after the collapse of SHIELD and Hydra, Bucky Barnes tries to build a new life for himself.

Jumping the Uncanny Valley - Echo - The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
He really had just intended to get a drink, make enough casual small talk to prove to himself that this wasn't going to be a problem, then get on with his evening. This? Not really the conversation he was expecting to have.

Tony and Vision talk about AIs and paradoxes. And JARVIS.

"Apologies, madam," says JARVIS, "but both you and Mr. Stark made me promise to prevent you from being one of 'those couples.'"

The ruin fed upon you - everythingispoetry - The Avengers (2012), Iron Man (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Tony leaves the old self behind and becomes a new person – twice. The first time, after Afghanistan, it worked. The second time, after Extremis, not so much.

Even in a wheelchair, Charles doesn't need anybody's protection from harm. But he does need better priorities, as it turns out, and it's about time he grew up a little.
