“Good news. Asgard is sending in some tributes too! And, Pepper Potts has been picked to go in too.” Tony makes a choked noise.
“Which Asgardians are going to be in this?” I ask.
“Which ones do you think?”
“Oh no...You guys! We HAVE to be allies with Thor, or else we won’t even stand a chance of winning.”
“We have no chance of winning anyway!” Bruce yells.
“Bruce! Why are you always like this?!”
“Oh please! Without Stark’s suit, Rogers’ shield, Barton’s bow, Romanov’s guns, and your (weapon of choice), we’re screwed!”
“They’ll have weapons in the arena for you guys.”
“Will they have a bow?” Clint asks, hopefully.
“They have knives, swords, bows, arrows, and ax
Destruction of the DemeterMajor Polsic discovered that much of the Electra's work, was to escort other ships, and generally protect them. Most passenger liners and cargo transports were relatively generous with their compensation. Nobody felt slighted when the captain agreed to an errand of mercy, which was an errand for which the Electra was not compensated. The times of strife they endured, provided several opportunities for those, and many were seized. Sometimes a bit of scheduling would allow the Electra to guide ships which were part of a mercy errand, along with paying ships. Other times, such as this, the mercy errand was the only errand.Destruction of the Demeter3 weeks ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
There were few clouds on the trip, and the weather was warm. Some of the crew took turns basking in the sun on the deck of the old battleship as it led the cargo transport Demeter through safe passage. Even the refugees on the Demeter seemed to relax somewhat. The Electra and her captain had a long reputation; no ship under her

The next couple of days were restless and full of hard work, and Zelda and Link rarely got to see each other at all. Link would be woken before the sun every morning and ordered every which way across the ship, scrubbing floors, digging muck out from the cracks in the woodwork, polishing doorknobs, emptying spittoons, tacking down patches on the hull, and whatever else the pirates could think of for him to do. The only times he got to see Zelda were during the three meals the crew had each day, during which time the Princess would be forced to serve them, Link included.
Zelda did not adapt quickly to the role of cook and servant. The first day, she spilled a pot of broth down the front of her dress, and the Captain had berated her for wasting food. Scarlett made her wring out the broth into a bowl, which she was then forced to take as her own dinner. The pirates shredded up her dress to use as rags for cleaning. Now Zelda wore the loose-fitting sla

As they climbed flight after flight of stone steps, higher and higher out of the subterranean depths of the Castle Dungeon, Zelda could hear the sounds of distant thundering, and see the walls tremble with the force of impact.
"What's going on up there?" she whispered to Zig, the masked pirate who carried her.
"Captains giving 'em hell, I expect," said the pirate, "That can't last forever though. We need to get up to the ship as fast as we can and get you out of here."
"Ship? There's no ocean near the castle."
"Not that kind of ship," replied Zig, mysteriously. Before Zelda could enquire what he meant by that Zig's unnamed superior cut them off with a sharp hiss. The senior pirate had come to a sudden halt on the landing of the next flight of stairs.
"You hear that?" said the leader, "Damn! Moblins! They're not far off. You'll have to take the boy too and go on ahead. I'll catch up."

It wasn’t supposed to end like this…
By the time his mind had resurfaced into some semblance of consciousness, his body had gone all but numb. He struggled to draw breath into his rebellious lungs, wheezing feebly through the smoke. A thick, coppery taste filled his mouth as the stifling heat slowly baked the excess ichor into the fur on his muzzle. He forced one eye open as best he could as he tried to see past the crack in the glass of his goggles, dividing the licks of orange and yellow that danced in the reflection. Fire and chaos were all that surrounded him, the roaring a deafening cacophony intertwined with the occasional distant explosion or thud of debris falling around him. Unable to move his head to confirm, he vaguely felt the all too familiar wood of the wheel jammed underneath his slumped right arm, pressing into his neck and chest.
Captain James Bennett was crushed at the helm of his ship, pinned between the enormous, dislodged wheel and the b

The ship was enormous. Lena could see that, easily. She wondered how long it would take to walk from one end of the ship to the other. But right now, it was resting in a docking area in the earth, while people hurried around to do potential repairs.
It was the Kalos region ship, Santalune City. The only city in Kalos with a school; as such, this was where Lena was going to be living for the time being.
“Lena, what're you doing?” her mother called. Lena snapped out of her trance with the ship and found her mother nearby, talking with some man she'd never seen before. Lena grabbed her backpack, shouldered it, and hurried after her mother.
“What?” Lena asked.
“We're getting on the ship,” her mother said.
“Don't want to.”
“I'm sorry, was there something on my face that said that I care what you want?”
“Well, you should. As your only daughter--”

When Link awoke, he found himself in utter darkness, his head throbbing from the bruise left where the guards had struck him. The floor he lay upon felt like stone: cold, hard and damp. A putrid smell invaded his nostrils, like the rot of decaying flesh, and it took him some effort to keep from vomiting outright.
He sat up in the darkness and began to grope around blindly for anything at all. Crawling on his knees with his hands held out in front of him, Link made it about four feet before grasping the cool metal of jail cell bars. An empty hopelessness rose in his chest, but he chided himself for it. What else had he expected? The guards had finally got him and likely the next time he saw the sun would be his last.
Defiantly, he rose to his feet, and began walking himself along the walls of his cell, creating a perimeter in his mind. It was not a large cell: About eight feet

He was falling again, tumbling through wispy clouds and cerulean oblivion to the bottomless pit of fear that nightly came to devour him. This time something was different though.
He could still see her, clear as if he were awake, the Princess Zelda, chained in a deep dungeon somewhere, bleak and cold and alone. He screamed at the rushing sky, kicking and swinging his arms in hateful desperation. How could he have left her like that? Exhausting his fury to the uncaring wind, he screamed till he could scream no more, but did not awaken.
After a few moments, he began to realize just how strange his nightmare had become.
For one thing, the usual confusion of dreamscapes did not have any hold over him, and he could rotate freely in the open sky as he plummeted on towards nothing. Slowly, the fear was leaving him, and he began to wonder how he could be so lucid whilst so obviously asleep.
There was another curiou

The flyer came crashing down through the floors and rafters of the temple tower with a thundering clatter, sending dust and shrapnel flying in its wake. Link's ears were ringing with the sound of the fall and the sound of his own screams, completely unable to control the plummeting craft as it snowballed through floor after floor of the old tower. There was a metallic twang, and Link saw one of the dragonfly wings of his little escape craft come tearing off and go whirling away into the mess of tumbling debris all around him. The cockpit hit a massive stone and went bouncing like a rubber ball from one wall to the other, rattling Link around inside the little brass sphere like a rupee in a beggar's cup. Finally, the little flyer came smashing down on solid rock with a bang, throwing Link on his back. For a few moments, sand and wreckage could be heard, pouring down atop the thing, and dwindling away into slighter and slighter noises till Link was left alone in a

He could feel himself falling…
The sky was a whirling, yawning vortex of cobalt, the clouds a hundred rows of dagger teeth, and the shark that was the four winds threatened to consume him in one greedy bite. He could feel the icy sting of the air, rushing all around him, chapping his lips and tearing his clothes to ribbons. The tears streaming from his eyes trailed off into nothing, lost forever in that endless overhead ocean of air.
Link awoke with the scene still burning in his mind, his heart thundering against the confines of his ribcage, and sweat pouring out of every pore. He threw the sheets off, and gave a hoarse scream to the stifling, humid summer night.
A pale, gibbous moon gleamed at him through the window, and he could see the tops of trees glowing in the faerie light as the little orbs danced back and forth, no doubt still planting the morning dew, a duty legend had assigned to faery folk. Calm settle

The sun rose brilliantly over the clouds, casting golden lights across the heavens. Sea gulls dipped in and out from the marshmallow puffs of water vapor, cawing at the daybreak. They were scrambling away from some large object, which was cutting through the clouds like a sword through a tuft of grass. Suddenly, the airship came bursting through the veil, its crimson banners flapping in the wind like giant streamers, and on each of them was the Shiekah symbol of the Lens of Truth: an eye, browed by three triangles, and crying a single tear.
The whirling propellers of the airship carved a steady path through the sky, and the ship came rising higher and higher towards the sun on the two powerful turbines which flanked either side of the boat-shaped vessel. Smoke trailed from one of the turbines, and holes dotted the ship like patchwork, but she still churned on mightily through the air. A trio of crimson sails, likewise bearing the Shiekah symbol, br
