Recced because: As you may have noticed by now, I like crossovers. I'm ending my run of recs with a beauty by an author who hasn't been seen here before, an angsty story in which post-Doomsday Rose has several encounters with The Avengers in Pete's world, and falls for a man who is as lost as she is...
The first time she sees him is when Pete sends her to New York to investigate some weird alien activity. She arrives at the most inopportune moment, of course. There’s some huge… thing attacking in the middle of the city, and there’s a group of people dressed in ridiculous outfits fighting it.
Things are on fire, and people around her are screaming and running for their lives. She shrugs — she’s used to chaos. It’s her element, now. She’s most comfortable when things are going to hell.
A wing off of a marble decorative angel flies by her face, and she finds herself being shoved to the ground. There’s a hand behind her head and a warm body above her.
“Ma’am, you really ought to get of here. This isn’t the best time to sight-see.”
The man has a nice voice, very American and soft despite the battle that's brewing around them. He helps her up, and she pushes her hair back, taking a look at the man for the first time. He’s dressed in this bright, somewhat gaudy outfit of red-white-and-blue.
Something near them crashes, and he’s pulling her tight to him, blocking them with a round shield.
“You really have to leave,” he urges. She doesn’t like people bossing her around, and she's put off for just a moment. Then she looks in his eyes and sees something so familiar.
He doesn’t belong either.
