There was no time to worry about Steve, as the winter soldier opened fire again, this time with an automated gun. Others had joined him, firing at you repeatedly. You quickly ran behind a car and fired at the soldier with the couple of bullets that were still left in your gun.
‘Sam are you okay?’ you cried out, looking behind you, seeing Sam taking cover behind one of the other cars.
‘I’m fine! Who the hell is this guy?’
‘There's no tome to explain. I’m out of bullets!’ you yelled again, tossing away the now useless gun. ‘I’m going to go check on Steve. You try to get your hands on one of those guns.’
‘What? Are you insane?’ Sam screamed after you as you ran away from the car and jumped to the other side of the freeway, rolling between the cars.

You felt a sharp pain in your side and your head was feeling like someone punched you repeatedly in the face. Your lungs were full with dust and you gasped for air as Steve moved the large piece of the building that had collapsed above your heads.
‘Come on!’ Steve cried out softly, lending you his hand, making it easier for you to climb out of the hole. ‘Are you alright?’ he asked, inspecting you from head to toe once you had climbed outside again.
‘I’ll be fine. Let’s go!’
Steve nodded, ducking as helicopters flew over the collapsed building, lowering several men down with ropes. Steve took you by the hand and led you towards the back entrance of the camp, into the woods. He gestured you should be quiet as he pushed you down to the ground slowly.

Steve walked into the elevator on the top floor of S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters. He had just had a conversation with Alexander Pierce, one of the counsel members of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a friend of Fury. The conversation had however left him with the chills. The way Pierce had spoken to Steve had left him with more questions than answers. Besides that, Fury had told him not to trust anyone. Not even his friends. That was why he had let Natasha go with Maria. He didn’t know if he could trust either of them, even though his gut told him he could.
When Steve had told the elevator where he wanted to go, the doors started to close. Before they closed completely however, Rumlow and several other S.T.R.I.K.E. team members walked into the elevator, pushing Steve a bit further to the back.
Their hands were on their guns and Steve frowned while his heart started to beat faster as he tried to figure out what was going on. The elevator stopped aft

You had been over the plan numerous of times back at the Avengers Tower and while the rest of the team distracted the HYDRA agents, Steve was supposed to take you up to the control room of the base to hack into it and download any information that might help the Avengers locate the remaining HYDRA agents (and Bucky). The base was heavily secured, however, and Steve knew he had de deviate from plan.
He didn't like to leave you alone, even though he didn't have a choice. You were the computer nerd not him, but he had started to care greatly for you over the past months and he didn't dare to think about what he would do if something happened to you.

Night had fallen over the mighty land of Asgard. It was more quiet than normal as you were walking through the halls of the grant palace. It had been several weeks since the dark elves had attacked Asgard and killed the queen, but the land was still in mourning. Thor had denied the thrown, so Odin was still king, though growing old and weak. Of the Asgardian warriors you were the one tasked with protecting the king, though he would not hear of it.
You knocked on the door of the king’s chambers before entering. The whole room still breathed the energy of the queen and you understood why the king spend most of his time here. You had always had a good bond with Frigga, as well as Thor and Loki, when he was younger. All had left you. Though the other Asgardian warriors were also your friends, you couldn’t help but feel the emptiness that was growing inside of you.

You loved your family, but you were happy to walk around town for a few minutes. Your sister’s blabbing gave you a headache and your mother’s cooking still hadn’t improved.
You passed the cafeteria where you had spent a lot of your younger years with friends or dates. You smiled thinking back at those days. You closed your coat further around you while you regained your stroll around town. It had started snowing, but you didn’t care. It truly made it feel like it was Christmas.
You nearly slipped on the pavement when someone honked at you.

Steve turned from the small television and looked around the waiting room of the clinic. Somehow Bucky had convinced Steve to get one of those 'True love's kiss timers', even though he knew a device could never tell him when he would meet his true love, let alone when he'd kiss her.
However, now that the Modern Marvels Pavilion was coming to Brooklyn, the clinic had lowered the price quite substantially, and, since most of the girls in whole of America had gotten themselves one of those timers, Bucky had practically forced Steve to get one as well.

Music was echoing through your house, the screaming of multiple 21 year olds contributing to the sounds that were starting to give you a headache. You were only several years older, but thinking back on your own days at University, you couldn't remember ever drinking as much as your niece and her friends did now.
Your apartment was located in Manhattan and your niece had begged you for nearly a year if she could throw her birthday party at your apartment. You were hesitant at first, but you had been young once (you still were of course, but having a grown up job made you a lot less childish) so you had agreed. On the condition that you'd stay to keep an eye on your things.
So now here you were, standing in the door opening of you bedroom, looking at your niece's friends while they were getting drunk. It actually brought a smile to your face.

Steve’s steady breathing was only a few steps behind you. You had been able to lose the men that had been chasing you for over 15 minutes, but you knew they would find you again eventually.
It was supposed to be a simple mission, but it had turned out rather differently. There had been no bomb underneath the mall, only several men waiting for you with guns. Steve had saved you from the first ray of gunfire and now you were walking through the mall, trying to find a way out of this mess. Fury wasn’t answering his phone and Tony said the rest of the Avengers were away on another mission.
In other words: you were completely alone.

You, Sif and the Warriors Three were rushing around all day, making sure everything was perfect for Jane and Thor's big day. You, especially. It was a long day, to say the least. From the time you woke up, you were overseeing something. Jane had specifically designated you as the one in charge. While you were flattered and loved being maid of honor, you also got a little crazy when you wanted something to be perfect. The only time you got a break was to eat a quick lunch. Then, a tiny pang of guilt hit you. It was nearly high noon and you hadn't spoken to Loki at all that day. You asked for a piece of paper and pen and scribbled a little note for Loki.
I'm so sorry I haven't been to see you yet. Wedding stuff is keeping me rather occupied. I'll be in later on.

You looked down. You were indeed floating just above the couch.

You both suddenly dropped back onto the couch. The jarring motion caused a pang in your head.
"The hell was that?" you asked rhetorically.
Loki shrugged. The two of you sat up and focused on the TV. You still laid your head on his shoulder, and his arm was wrapped around your waist. You couldn't quite hear the TV, so you were about to reach for the remote. Before your hand got to it, though, you heard the volume getting louder. You looked up at the screen.

He stared at you for a long time, drinking in your beauty. He drew little swirls on your cheek with the tip of his finger.

You cuddled in closer to him, pressing your chest to his. His lips met with yours. He felt as though his lips belonged with yours. This was an absolutely perfect morning.
"Breakfast?" you asked after pulling away.
"That would be delightful," Loki replied, giving you a quick peck on the forehead.

After you finished eating, you caught up with the servant who usually brought Loki his dinner. You took the tray from him. He thanked you over and over again. Loki scared that guy to no end. You caught a glimpse of Thor's smirk as you left.

You stood next to Loki, amazed at what the workers had accomplished. What was once Loki's bedroom had been turned into a living room, with a large sectional sofa and an even bigger fireplace. There were a few bookshelves pressed against the walls on either side of the large window. You walked past the living room into a short hallway, holding Loki's hand.
On the other side of the hall was a huge, fully-stocked kitchen. Past the counters was a small dining table with a candelabrum, sitting pretty in front of a smaller fireplace than the one in the last room. Leading out of the kitchen were a few more short hallways. You followed the one to the left, past the stove. It led to a set of French doors that opened to a gorgeous terrace

Then, you saw him as a ray of sun slipped through the curtains. Loki was, in a word, breathtaking. Seriously, you momentarily forgot how to breathe.

Though he wouldn’t even have had to -- Sirius, Remus and Peter didn’t ask him why he was so gloomy, thus Lily assumed he told them about everything.

When Isabella opened the door on them, she wasn’t the only one to see Lily and James in the intimate pose they sat on the bed. It’s true her hand was to press the handle down, but Slughorn and all the rest of the present guests were standing behind her. The stunned silence was broken by the tipsy professor:
“Well, well! I forgot to close the door of my bedroom! How silly I am!”
The petrified people seemed to move again all at once. Lily stood up holding up to James’s arm. She tried to avoid Isabella’s look.
“Who did not taste my crystallized pineapples yet?”, Slughorn bellowed. “They are the finest quality in Europe!”
The crowd understood the poorly disguised call. They dissolved in a minute, buzzing; only Isabella continued standing there frozen.
“Isabella…”, James started, but the Ravenclaw girl raised her free hand and silenced him.

She wore the forest green, satin, frilly, short sleeved dress robes her mother bought for her during the summer holidays with a pair of green moccasin shoes. She pinned up half of her hair. She didn’t want to make a huge fuss about her clothes and look, but she didn’t want to look like she didn’t even care about them either.
Only at the middle of the way to Slughorn’s office did Lily notice the air was a bit chilly in her pretty robes. She didn’t want to be late so much so she continued on her way.
A lot of people were bustling in Slughorn’s office. Just as Lily assumed, there were a lot of couples. She squared her shoulders and raised her head proudly. Some people greeted her and she greeted back, but then Slughorn caught her:

Lily was sitting in the common room on a couch in front of the fireplace. She was reading Hogwarts, A History for her next History of Magic lesson. She tried to concentrate on the legend of the Chamber of Secrets, but it wasn't that easy, as a loud applause and screaming started in the common room. Lily turned her head.
James Potter came down the stairs. There was a white little lily between his teeth. Lily rolled her eyes and returned to her book. After a few minutes, James stopped next to the couch. He stared at the girl without saying a word. Lily sighed angrily and glanced at him impatiently.
Lily's look changed from upset to shocked while James unbuttoned his shirt. He unfolded it, sticking his chest out. There was a writing on his skin with red ink under his tie, which read: 'WANNA DATE?'
James smiled with the flower in his mouth and looked questioningly at Lily.

Severus released a furious breather and grasped Lily's right arm.
"Hey, what are you doing?!", she screamed angrily.
"If you want answers, you'll give me something in return", he answered, without any emotions reflecting on his waxy complexion.

She was reading all night the day before Christmas. She was so excited because of the next day, she couldn't sleep. 'It's because it's Christmas tomorrow', she thought but a part of her common sense (a very shameful part of it) suggested it was because of James's return.
She woke up for a loud scream. "MERRY CHRISTMAAAS!" She jumped out of her bed frightened. Her D.A.D.A. textbook fell down from the bed. "Me-Merry Christmas" Lily yawned for Mary and went to the bathroom to wash herself awake.

"James, that was rude. It sounds discriminative!" berates the girl. She turns her attention to the camera, ignoring the boy's eye-roll. "Hello, everybody. My name is Lily, and this is James."

"What's wrong, Ron?" she murmured drowsily.
He gazed at her for a moment, trying to claw his way out of the horror of his dream by seeing her face: unscathed, unharmed, and right there with him.
"Ron?" Her voice was more forceful now and she propped herself up on her arm. "Ron, if you have something to say, spit it out because you're looking at me in a very unnerving way."
Ron smiled. "Um, it's nothing. Nightmare." he croaked, his voice rough from sleep. He cleared his throat. "Go back to sleep."

If you're reading this, I can only assume that you have won. If you had not, it would only make sense for you to be dead.
I can also assume that if this letter is in your possession, I was one of the casualties.
I know how you must be feeling, Harry. I need you to read this letter carefully. It's terribly important.
I want you first to know that no losses that occurred in this war were your fault. I know you feel the guilt, Harry. Understand that the people who fought in the battle did not fight it for you. They fought it for themselves, and more importantly, for the world. You were an extremely crucial part of the war, I do not deny that. But you were not the cause. This battle was inevitable. Whether it happened when it did, where it did, or elsewhere at another time. It would have happened eventually. Perhaps it is better that it happened now. Many losses would have been sustained in this fight, and if those same losses had not occurred had the battle not been when it ha

Ginny frowned. “What do you mean, Lily?”
Her little girl sniffled. “Daddy just said something and then he left.”
“What did he say?” Ginny asked, a little worried now.
Lily shrugged. “I don’t know.”
“He said something about parents, and visiting, but you’re here, Mum, so why did he go out the door?” Albus piped up.
“And he wasn’t looking at us. Why was he being so strange, Mum?” James inquired.
Glancing at the swinging door, Ginny gave a little ‘oh’ of understanding. “James, is today Halloween?”
Ginny smiled ruefully. “Daddy went to visit his parents.”

A bitter lump rose in his throat, and he swallowed it angrily.
