The Avengers: Day OffThe Avengers (Tony, Steve, and Bruce) were sitting at their HQ lounge room just chilling out. They were relaxing because they didn't have any villains to fight.Tony had been feeling, well, not like Tony lately. Even he didn't know why he was acting so glum lately. It was probably just all the stress from being a member of The Avengers. Tony just sat on the sofa, day-dreaming and staring out the window.The Avengers: Day Off in Humor More Like This
Steve had noticed that something was bothering Tony. He just didn't ask him about it because he felt it was rude. None of the other Avengers, whether in the room currently or somewhere else, noticed like Steve did. Now it was just him, Bruce, and Tony. He had to ask now, while almost everyone was in a good mood.
"Hey, Tony. Can I ask you something?" Steve sat up from his previous reclined position to look at Tony on the other side of the room. Tony was still day-dreaming, and didn't hear Steve.
"Tony? Tony!" Steve stood up and walked over to the other couch. He was practically standing r

"Uh... Another two to three months."
"Ohhh, dear Odin! I don't think I can do it, Thor."
"You've been doing great for a whole ten months..."
"It's been that long?"
"Hmph, feels longer."
"I know. Just look on the bright side--"
"Oh, don't give me that 'bright side' nonsense! There is no bright side."
"Really? The bright side isn't finally being freed of your imprisonment in Asgard? Well, more specifically the castle in Asgard. The bright side isn't maybe getting revenge on The Avengers?"
"You're not supposed to put bad notions in my head, Thor. That's what I'm here to get rid of."
"You can't dream?"
"When did you become so sinister?"
Thor laughed. He was talking with Loki in Loki's room. Obviously, Loki's trial went well. He wasn't banished for eternity... But he was punished. He had to stay locked up in the Asgardian castle for a year or more, with a set of rules. Thor was allowed to visit Loki once every day for a period of up t
The Avengers: Tickling, Toads, And Trickery"Stop! Leave me alone!" Loki ran up a flight of stairs, but tripped on one step. He quickly regained his footing and ran through the heli-carrier. Following him were Thor and Tony. Bruce, Steve, and Clint were also following Loki, but they weren't in hot pursuit of him.The Avengers: Tickling, Toads, And Trickery in Humor More Like This
Loki turned abruptly into an empty healing room. He shut and locked the door behind him. About five seconds later, Tony was seen running into the closed door. Loki was panting, trying to catch his breath after running from The Avengers.
"Open the door, Reindeer Games," came Tony's voice from the other side of the door.
"A-Absolutely not," Loki replied breathlessly. He sat on the cot in the tiny medical room.
Tony turned around and looked at Thor.
"Wanna give it a try?"
Thor walked to the door and spoke loudly, "Brother, please come out. We promise not to hurt you."
"That's what you said last time."
"And did we hurt you?"
"You humiliated me. And I will not stand for it," Loki crossed his ar

"To see if we can get any positive matches as to where the Tesseract is."
"Oh... So, shouldn't you be doing something productive in the meantime?"
"Relax, Cap. Let Banner chill. He's been working hard."
"Sorry. I'm just kinda antsy today."
"It's okay, Steve. We're all under a lot of pressure."
"Does anyone know where Goldie Locks is?"
Steve and Bruce both chortled under their breath. Tony had the best jokes for the worst times.
"He's supposed to be in the heli-carrier. Other than that, I have no idea," Steve answered. Bruce was staring at the computer screen, biting his lower lip.
"So, Banner. About this 'other guy'....."
"I'd rather not talk about him."
"Okay.... Any progress on the magic cube, then?"
"No. Nothing yet."
"How do you stay calm?"
"Tony...." Steve warned.
"It's a secret."
"Well, can you share it?"
"Alright," Tony said. He grabbed a pointy metal object and went over to Bruce, who was caref
The Avengers: Security Cameras And DecisionsLoki was sitting in his 'special' cell on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s heli-carrier. He was recently defeated by The Avengers. He was disappointed, but was extremely annoyed with what they had to do to him. They put him in hand restraints and attached a muzzle on his mouth. Loki thought the gag was a little much. I mean, what did they think he was going to do? Talk them to death?The Avengers: Security Cameras And Decisions in General Fiction More Like This
'This is ridiculous,' thought Loki. He leaned his head back onto the transparent cell and sighed into the gag.
Loki decided to lay down and possibly get some shut eye before The Avengers sent him off. He laid on his side and brought his arms as far as he could up to his face. This wasn't the best looking position, but it was the most comfortable Loki could manage. He closed his eyes and hoped to drift off to sleep.
Thor was walking through the halls; he got random congratulations from S.H.I.E.L.D. agents while he walked. He smiled and thanked them, but he had something other than celebration on his mind...
The Avengers: A Friendly Conversation - Part 2Bruce was still in the lab. It was getting late, as he could tell by the darkness outside. He also noticed that there was a storm occurring. Bruce wondered what from because it was perfect weather earlier today. He began getting nervous, waiting for his teammates. Tony, Steve, and Thor had been gone for a while. He had no one to talk to because Natasha and Coulson went with them. Bruce's work amount was quickly depleting as the time passed.The Avengers: A Friendly Conversation - Part 2 in General Fiction More Like This
"Come on, come on, come on... Shit!" Bruce was frustrated with his computer. It finally shut down on him. He removed his glasses and stood back from the computer. He sighed and rubbed his eyes. Bruce stood back for another minute before he put his glasses back on, and then went on to another project.
While Bruce was looking for some papers on a desk, he knocked over something. Whatever it was made a clinking noise as it hit the floor. He groaned and bent down to pick it up. Bruce smiled when he held what had fallen in his hands. It was t

"Yeah, well... me too! And I got him first."
"Hulk!" young Steve Rogers yelled. He was playing with action figures with Tony. Steve was about to knock the Loki action figure off the tall play-building with his own figurine when Tony picked it up. Then he used his action figure to beat up the Loki one instead.
"What, Steve? And for the last time, my name is Bruce," Bruce Banner said in annoyance. He was the oldest of the Avengers, being twelve, and he was their father (in a way). He was the one the other four and five-year-olds complained to and depended on.
"Tony's being mean!"
"I am not."
"Okay, that's enough! Steve, what happened?"
"Tony took Loki away from me."
Bruce was confused for a second, then he saw the toy in Tony's hand.
"Tony... Did you take Steve's toy?"
"No! He didn't take him, so I took him and beat him up."
"Yeah, but I wanted to beat him!"
"Steve, maybe Tony wanted to beat him, too--"

I was actually really nervous of how the superheroes and former villian would act around my grandma and grandpa. Tony pulled up in the driveway, and everyone was silent. They were all staring at the house in front of them.
"I think I should go in first," I said. Steve turned his head to look at me.
"Why?" he asked me.
"Because I need to give them a heads up of what you guys really are like."
"That's nice..." Bruce said sarcastically and smiled at me.
"Please, guys. Just stay, like, outside the car or something. Empty out the cooler... do something, is my point. I'll come back out and get you guys."
"I agree that this is the best thing to do," Thor said.
"Thanks. Uh, Thor I need you to get out so I can go out," I told him and unbuckled my seatbelt. Thor looked at the door curiously. I sighed and opened the door for him. He steppe

"I'm still tired," I said to see if anyone cared.
"Okay. But now it's 9:45. Really? You can't stay up any later than this?" Tony said, amazed at my lack of energy.
"I usually want to go to bed right about now."
"Well, what do you do with your girl friends when you have sleepovers with them?" Bruce asked.
"I've honestly only been to one sleepover in my entire life. And that one was pretty hectic."
Loki tried to muffle a laugh that crept up on his lips.
"I-I'm sorry," he said, now smiling, "How hectic?"
"There was a party, where boys were invited... and then the sleepover only had girls."
"Hey, but we're guys," Tony said.
"I know. That's the bad part of the whole story. The boys."
"Okay. Forget the sleepover remark, then," Bruce folded his hands.
"But no one else is tired? After spending a whol
The Avengers: What Started Out As ScienceBruce was working in the lab on the heli-carrier late one night. It was his routine to barely get any sleep, and just continue working. He was very passionate about his work, as well, which is why he spent most of his time in the lab. But tonight was the third night in a row Bruce didn't sleep. It was finally starting to set in on him.The Avengers: What Started Out As Science in General Fiction More Like This
He knew that the rest of the team was probably resting in their sleeping chambers on the flying ship. Just thinking about that made his eyes droop. Bruce just rubbed his tired eyes through his glasses and continued typing and reading on the computer.
Another Avenger that found himself unable to sleep was Tony Stark. He surprisingly fell asleep at only 10:00, which was early for him. But sadly, he was awakened by some nightmares he had. Once one was finished after he woke up, another one would just start up when he fell asleep again. So, Tony just decided to leave his room and maybe get some decaf coffee from the heli-carrier's kitchen.
Tony's room wasn't
