Blue optics followed sari's every movement as she ran around the park. This was the first time that he'd ever seen her with both of her pokémon out at the same time. Usually it was just one of them out at a time when she was on the ship with them. Though his almost constant lack of presence aboard the ship might have had something to do with the fact that he hadn't seen Dizzy and Tipper out at the same time before. He'd been appalled when he seen all the crime that seemed to go on in Detroit.
He hadn't expected crime to be so bad. He'd though at first that the presence of pokémon on the police force would help detour any potential criminals. He hadn't processed the idea that the ones they were almost constantly chasing had pokémon as well. The playing field was even on both sides, or it had been until they'd show up. It didn't matter to thieves that the people chasing them had pokémon.
Not when they themselves often had them as well. It had been Sari t

Most people when faced with a grief stricken Tauros would have the sense to get out of the charging bull’s way. Sam however wasn’t most people. It helped of course that said bull started dangling three feet off of the floor as soon as it came anywhere near him. This of course was thanks to a well-timed Psychic attack provided by Clover.
Out of all of the grieving pokėmon that he’d seen so far Toro had been the only one to even attempt to lash out at him. To be fare however he was a Tauros and they didn’t tend to be known for being happy and calm creatures. So as things were Toro was going to hang in the air until Clover decided to put his hooves back on the ground and Sam was more than okay with that because if it wasn’t Clover taking care of the grieving pokėmon then it would be Spike.
And the last thing Sam wanted to do was get the old Nidoking involved in things because there was no way that that would end well for anyone and the last thing Sa

Thoughts like this continued to float through your head, even as you saw him through the mist up ahead. He had jet-black hair that reached his shoulders, and pale skin. He was the strangest thing you had ever seen. He had this strange essence about him, like he wasn't even human. This idea wasn't helped by the strange clothing he wore. What looked like an adaption from a trench-coat that was edged with gold and black armor.
You stood there gaping, and suddenly he was aware of you, turning around so you could see his face. He was beautiful...his deep emerald eyes boring into yours.
Both of you regarded each other for a moment or two, before a mischievous grin crawled up onto his l

You spin wildly, deflecting Wutai blades from all directions. There's a loud explosion, Zack's signal to attack. You're the distraction, and for now, you're doing fine. The Wutai soldiers are fast, but not as fast as you. Suddenly, you start to see things you know aren't there.
"God, no, please not now." You pray softly. But your deity must not be listening, because pain ripples through body. You try to ignore it, but it's useless, and soon you can barely see because of the hallucinations flashing before your eyes. You start to cough, knowing you're going down. You squeeze your eyes tightly shut and continue to wave you blade wildly, trying to continue to distract the Wutai soldiers, but you know you're failing. Something slams into you and you go down, you try to pull yourself up again, but pain forces you down again. You cry out, trying to form a warning with your lips, but all that comes out is a pain wracked scream, filled with anger and determination.

You wanted to run the rest of the way but you couldn’t find the strength to do so, but your smile ceased to fade, if anything it only grew wider when you saw two of them break away and run towards you to meet you halfway. Fili was the first one to reach you and he swooped in, forgetting about your injuries for a moment, and wrapped his arms around your waist, and spun you in a full circle.

“Of course I did. Did you really think I would give up?” you asked, wrapping your arms around his neck and pulling his down into a hug.

And it’s taken Steve the better part of half an hour to convince Bucky to even come into the bathroom, forget the removal of any of his clothes for washing. He’s promised a thousand times they’re only going to wash them, and that in the meantime Tony is pulling out some sweatpants for them, and a few sweatshirts and t-shirts. They’ll have something warm and soft after. Why is it so horrible to take a shower? And then he realises he really doesn’t want to know why Bucky is afraid of showers and bathtubs, and what sort of horrible things have happened to him involving water.

There's a light bandage wrapping Bucky's stump, one that he can get wet and they can change once he's done cleaning up, but that will catch any blood or pus that leaks out. Steve helps him up the stairs, he's really off balance, almost comically so. Once he's up to the top of the stairs, Sam looks at him from the counter where he was sitting with Pepper. "Soups up," he says with a smile.
Nat is next to Bucky's stump, guarding it. There had been some fairly intense bruising and scraping at the end of it where Steve had crushed part of the arm. The guilt was extreme enough without anyone else seeing it or mentioning it.
Pepper watches him limp towards them, wondering what they did to his legs before realizing it's not a true limp. He's just holding one shoulder much higher than the other and it's throwing off his gait entirely. With his hair matted down with sweat and dark circles under his eyes, he looks truly awful.

"Hungry?" he asks, a sad smile on his face when Bucky shakes his head, rubbing hurriedly at his chin. Pulling the scarf off from around his neck he holds it out to Tony, briefly looking it over to make sure he didn't drip any apple juice onto it. "Thanks," Tony tells him, balling up the scarf.
"Thanks for the loan," he mumbles, shrugging out of Clint's jacket and putting it carefully over the back of a chair.
"We made some new friends today," Clint tells Tony casually, watching Bucky carefully bite into his apple. "Four assholes, Buck, you still got those IDs?"
"Hydra," he clarifies around a mouthful of food. Digging out the cards carefully he passes them to Tony who takes them and glances at them.
"Fakes. Not even good fakes."

Bucky's screams startle Natasha out of her restive state, slipping off the bed before a random blow kills her. Seeing him thrash like that startles her, but she's not too sure there's not a pattern to it.
"James! James wake up!" she shouts, she doesn't have the strength Steve does to just muscle in and shake him awake. Nor does she have Captain America's healing abilities where she can risk a blow to her person. Clint's in the door, gun sweeping the room before he looks at Natasha, face pained. They all have nightmares. Not this violent, but they all have them.
Steve looks away from Sam and bolts from the clearing the moment he hears Bucky's tortured screams. He would have gone straight through the motel door if it hadn't already been open. "Bucky!" the name rips itself free of his throat before he can stop it, getting in close enough to take several punish

"Watch out!" Bofur shouted when the barge came dangerously close to colliding with a large bunch of rock formations which turned out to be some ancient ruins. Thankfully, Bard was an expert at steering the vessel and he maneuvered it to go in between the ruins without even nicking it.
"What are you trying to do, drown us?" Thorin growled at Bard.
"I was born and bred on these waters, Master Dwarf." Bard responded. "If I wanted to drown you, I would not do it here." You weren't sure whether to be amused by that comeback, or scared by the threat that was possibly hidden within it.

The captain stepped out of the bislug-drawn carriage and squinted in the early evening light. It always took him a few hours to get used to sunlight after months in space. Paying the driver, picking up his one suitcase and slinging his captain's uniform over his left shoulder, he looked up at the two-story country house. It was situated in the middle-class district on the crescent of the Haniput Space Port, where the Interstellar Academy was located. Though he knew more people on other planets, he and his wife had decided not to move far after getting married. He grinned and his heart skipped a beat at the thought of his wife.
Young and reckless, their relationship had had a rocky start to say the least, but they had sacrificed much for each other, and he had grown to love her more than his own life.

When they find the others at a table eating quietly, they settle themselves down as well.
"Where were you two?" Sam asks, taking another bite of bread before washing it down with something from a tankard.
Shrugging in response, Steve glances at Bucky who shrugs back. "Sleeping."
"Just like you said," Bucky adds for good measure.
"Just like I said huh?" Sam asks, fairly sure they're both lying. While Bucky has truly perfected that guileless look, Steve hasn't. "How'd you sleep?"

Cried many tears

After a break to stop and eat some of the protein bars, which Bucky pronounces 'foul tasting and insipid' at the same time, they move on again. As it gets darker, the mood seems less playful.
"Hey Steve, tell us some stories about what you were like as a kid," Sam says just to break the silence. It's not that Bucky seems upset, or Steve does, it's just that the trek is wearying. Being alert all the time is wearying.
"Well, little. Skinny, I had asthma, and I couldn't see very well. And I was allergic to just about everything," he laughs. "I have no idea how I survived my time in boot camp, forget what made them choose me."

When he hears a soft knocking he comes too, hand slipping out of Bucky's as he startles awake. Although what cements full wakefulness is Bucky's arm splashing into the water and spraying him with cold water. "Just a minute!" he calls, seeing the other man start to slip under the surface as his heels seek traction they're never going to find. Catching Bucky under the arm before the water even raises over his collarbone he helps steady him while he stands up. It's almost impossible to get traction in a bathtub that has Epsom salts in it. "Here," he says, wrapping a towel around his friend. "When did the water get cold?" he mutters, glad that Bucky isn't shivering. Or maybe he's too cold to shiver. Feeling supremely anxious he goes to the door and cracks it to see Natasha holding some clothing.
"Fresh out of the dryer. You guys alright in there? It's been over an hour," she tells him. As he takes the clothing the fresh smell of clean laundry rises up and the warmth feels invi

"Is it going to hurt?" Bucky asks, looking at Steve helplessly.
"We don't know," Banner says quietly. Their introduction had been haltingly painful. The other man had refused to shake hands, and had slowly and continually retreated until he was by the window, and Bruce wasn't so sure he wasn't going to bolt. "I can do my best to make sure it doesn't, but you'll actually have to talk to us while we work, or we won't know." The poor man seems so scared. But Bruce can't say as he's surprised.
"Look, if anyone's going to be tinkering with your arm, anyone in the whole world, I promise you that Tony Stark is the man to trust."
"That doesn't reassure me," Bucky says quietly, watching Stark from across the room. He hasn't brought a single implement into the room, because Banner told him getting the patient 'comfortable' was more important that starting to work. It's obnoxious, but since Banner's the humanitarian, Tony lets him take the lead. Steve hasn't been able to move more th

They both leave, Steve reaching back to hold Bucky's hand and bring him forward, glances around before realizing he doesn't know where to go. Frustrated with himself, he glances around, knowing that his hesitation is going to cost him. Bucky starts to tense back up, and there's nothing Steve can do to stop him. "I just don't remember where the bedroom was, I'm sorry," he says. "After you sleep, if you still want, Pepper said she'd cut your hair," he offers. It's not strictly true, Pepper said after a bath, she would cut his hair. But he highly doubts that she'll really mind letting Bucky sleep first.
"No, cut it...cut it first," he says, face tight. "I...I want to look like Bucky."

Guilt twisting inside of him, he drops his hand from the brunette's cheek. Burned into his brain is the need to find out if those lips are as soft as they look. But Bucky is a good man, an honorable man. And honorable men do not kiss other men. What the hell is wrong with him, anyway?

Taking time to leave a few trail signs had been nerve wracking and Steve wasn't sure it was worth the risk. But as Sam finds them, he would obliterate them, and there's no one left following them. He's made sure of that.
