At least, not until he woke up at three forty-seven in the morning, with S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Clint Barton nowhere to be found.
Clint had been Bruce's close friend, lover, and bedmate for almost a year. They were accustomed to each other's sleeping habits. Clint would leave at odd hours of the night, called away on missions that Bruce could know nothing about. Bruce would crawl into their shared bed early in the morning, having spent all night experimenting with Tony.
Despite their very different schedules-and Clint's "if I told you I'd have to kill you, and I don't want to kill you" attitude towards his work- they had not spent a night wit
Unwell -Bruce B./Clint B.- P1Bruce Banner could not sleep, too much was going on within his mind.

It was not something he was used to in the least, having someone to work with let alone being apart of the team of the, to quote Commander Fury, ‘Earth’s mightiest heroes.’ By nature Bruce was a loner, his current living situation was something that went directly against that. He was not entirely sure he liked it.
What if he lost control again? What if he destroyed the tower Mr. Stark had so generously let them all live in?
What if he killed his new…friends? Could he call his teammates that? Were they actual genuine friends, or just the people he lived with? It was so bloody new to him. He had friends before the accident but it had been so long…
Numb "I'm sorry, Mr. Stark," the cop's voice was sympathetic, but hollow. The horror of what he had just seen-the mutilated bodies of the child and the man, the remains of the car- were right behind his eyelids, threatening to burst forth from the walls of his memory every time he so much as blinked. "I really am."Numb2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"It-it's not your fault," Tony's voice was weak, nonexistent. He couldn't think. He couldn't breathe. Everything he knew-everything he loved-was gone. Just like that. "It was-I excuse me." Tony turned around, walking back into Stark Tower and closing the door in the cop's face.

Nearly two hours had passed since well, since Tony had been subjected to whatever the hell in that claustrophobic stairwell. Tony really didn't know why Steve had to keep using such modern terms like 'sexual assault' and 'attempted rape' terms that Tony had assumed weren't even assimilated into Steve's updated vocabulary. Anyway, it hadn't gotten that far, wouldn't have gotten that far. Steve had stopped it from happening.
Tony scrubbed at his arms harder, attempting to erase the bruises that formed the telltale shape of fingerprints. Philip's fingerprints. On his shoulders, the side of his neck and then there were the ones that were
Is That an Offer, Dr. Banner?Tony Stark was drunk.Is That an Offer, Dr. Banner?2 years ago in Romance More Like This
He wasn't sure quite how drunk he was, but he was pretty sure it was more than just a little bit. Not knowing how much alcohol he had imbibed probably meant he was very drunk. All he knew was that he was drunk and the adorable Dr. Bruce Banner was right in front of him. The very adorable, positively sexy, and very available Bruce Banner.
Wait a second. I do have a girlfriend…don't I? I think I have a girlfriend… Tony's thoughts were muddled - yet more evidence that he was heavily intoxicated - but then the revelation came to him. He had had a girlfriend. The reason he had gotten that drunk in the first place was because she broke up with him.
…Why did she break up with him?
"Hey Bruce?" Tony asked in a strange voice that didn't sound like his own. Bruce looked over at him. He wasn't drunk. Or it didn't seem it. "Why did my girlfriend break up with me again?"
A flush spread across Bruce's cheeks. "Er…she thou

The first time it happens, it's in the middle of a battle. Some self proclaimed 'King of the Earth' with another army, this time a bunch of a mutants, who somehow managed to take the President hostage. Of fucking course.
So they're in DC, fighting fire breathers and shape shifters and invisible men like it's nothing (because really, compared to their other battles, it's easy). Clint is on top of a building, taking out who he can from above and warning the others. Natasha and Steve have the streets, fighting off wave after wave. Thor and Hulk are just all over the place, electrifying and smashing, respectively. Tony's soaring overhead, blasting airborne mutants and dropping to the ground to help overwhelmed team mates every once and awhile. It all works out pretty well.
Eventually, they start making their way to the general area in between the Smithsonian museums, where today's super-villain awaits their arrival.

"What's wrong?" Bruce asked his friend worriedly, thinking quickly of what might have happened.
"Nothing, nothing," Tony replied in a resigned tone. Not believing him, Bruce went over to see his friend standing with a slightly shocked expression on his face. He was holding a blackened test tube near a still-flaming Bunsen burner and his face was also covered in dark ash.
"What happened?" Bruce demanded as he cautiously turned off the burner, wary of getting too close.
"JARVIS distracted me," Tony whined.
"I informed you, as you instructed me to, that Miss Potts had returned," JARVIS explained, sounding as if it was sighing.
"Yeah, but you should have waited until I was done taking the test tube off the Bunsen burner!" Tony argued.

For years humans have been deceived:
"Angels are holy and represent good,
While demons are corrupt and represent evil."
But this was perceived in bad blood
Angels have enslaved the human race,
Tricking them into thinking they were free.
What they did not know was that they were being used,
And the angels condemned the humans, you see.
The demons were simply outraged,
"The humans must live a free life!
You angels have gone too far this time!
Prepare to fall in this newborn strife!"
The angels, cunning as they were,
Tricked the humans into helping them.
"Humans, these demons are evil.
We are good; help us defeat them."
The humans, without hearing the demons,
Grew outraged that an "evil" was near.
"These demons will perish among our blades,
For no evil will stand in our way!"
The angels grinned mischievously,
As the humans were slaying their saviors.
The demons tried to warn them,
But the humans took their heads as souvenirs.

Darkness Falls: Chapter 0Chapter 0 – Aisuru's Journal Entries (Prologue)Darkness Falls: Chapter 02 years ago in Settings More Like This
Sparky had been feeling very uncomfortable lately. Once every few weeks, she felt as if huge shockwaves rippled throughout all of the particles of her entire body, and it made her feel very uneasy and sorrowful every time. It wasn't often that it would happen; it only happened once every few weeks. Only the more it happened, the more she seemed worried. She had never experienced a feeling like this, and she couldn't explain why she was feeling them. No one else in the crew had seemed to feel them, and no one noticed her shake or react any other way when they occurred. She would just start to breathe heavily with her eyes shot wide open, and a hint of red gleaming in her eyes.
Sparky didn't know anything about what the shockwaves meant, but she could somehow feel that it was related to Aisuru's absence. She knew that anything the doctor or anyone else told her would be useless; the shockwave

"Have you woken up Peter, yet?" Tony asked, skimming through the fridge for the butter. Steve shook his head.
"He doesn't have to be at school for another hour, so I thought I'd let him sleep in."
Tony suddenly narrowed his eyes, pursing his lips as he buttered his bread. "Y'know I'm getting a little suspicious, Steve," he said abruptly.
Captain America glanced up, looking concerned. "What for?"
"Well, ever since that Wade Wilson kid came up to our front door asking if Peter had his backpack, I've been a little curious about what's going on."
Steve laughed, catching Tony off guard.
"What? You don't respect my parenting?" he snapped indignantly, entering the living room and sitting down at the couch

Aisuru left the ship after telling his crew that he would be absent for a while. He did not tell them of why or for how long; just that they should not wait for him. To make sure that no one would follow him, he entered into the shadows of a dark alleyway and completely erased his presence. His scent was gone, he made no noise, and he wore a dark mask with a black hooded jacket on it, as well as black pants and black shoes. He traveled 15 miles before he made sure that no one was following him, even though he was traveling in the darkest of shadows. Just to make sure no one would be able to follow him, Aisuru pulled his daggers, Yin and Yang, out. Dark energy swarmed around his arms as he brought his arms straight above his head, and he slashed vertically downward.
A pitch black portal, darker than the darkest of black, seemed to rip open in front of Aisuru from his daggers. He vanished into it, the portal sea

Sweet yearning from the depths of my soul.
Blessed is my mind that drinks of this knowledge.
Though stubborn at first, rejecting its hand.
I have learned to accept it as my only salvation.
From the streets which have long been my home.
I look to the skies and the clouds above.
Through my skills I shall rise, so I may catch the stars.
Even if the journey might be as heavy as stone.

As we step off the ship, I immediately notice myself having quite a bit of troublemoving. It's like everything's super heavy. I can barely carry my sword, much less lift up my own arm.

With shaking hands
Blood dripping from it

Staring at the fresh scars
Where my heart does be
Shaking her head
She holds me close
Covering the cuts
As I lean in close
Cry little one

Bismarck took a deep breath and exhaled slowly. His eyes wandered around the large interior of the barn and, for the first time, remembered. Despite the horrors of the storm, the situation of the unexpected time travel, the injuries, and the mounting tension between him and his best friend, he was home. Somehow, deep inside, this place calmed him. Sweet Apple Acres was his sanctuary and no other place in the world could replace it. Even as a foal, he loved Ponyville in a way few others did. Looking across the barn, he could see things had probably not changed much in the past twenty or so years. It was nearly exact same as it was in the future. Reality returned to his focus once more and weighed on him in the form of a heavy sigh when his gaze met Radiance's. The white unicorn now lay on the ground, back turned to him. Bismarck got up.
