I will fight for those who cannot fight for themselves
Courage and Valor
Megara said nothing until John landed outside of the building that housed many of those on Steve’s team, but even then it was just a sort thank you before she stormed off into the building. She did not go to find Steve, she did not stop to talk to anyone. Instead she went right to her old room; for she had been sharing a room with Steve since they had returned from their little holiday; and slammed the door. Thankfully she had calmed down enough that nothing was shaking anymore, but it was clear something was eating at her.

Stripping off her clothing she took a hot shower, making the water almost to the point she couldn't stand it as if she was trying to burn away everything that had happened in Africa. She washed her hair a few times and and scrubbed her body clean, letting the water finally turn to cold before she climb out to dry out. Even though she felt better, in the way she felt clean now, Megara had to admit she was still well frustrated. Angry too if she had to be honest, as well as disappointed and just out right pissed off. Of course there was that feeling of disuess as every time she closed her eyes she saw what Logan had done, and a part of her wanted to just throw up. Never in her life could Megara think of a time when she had been this angry, or was she just really disappointed, she didn’t know. What she did know is that she needed to figure out what she was going to do about it, would she now stay in man’s world and be faced with what someone she believed to be a friend had done. Or would she return to her island and report that Man’s world was becoming to the point where no one could save them from the path they were one.

Knowing she wasn’t in the right state of mind to decide, Megara put on some comfortable clothing; pulled her hair back in a braid and went down to the training center to burn off some steam. Once inside the room she went to the computer and tried to remember what Steve had told her about calling up situation to be used, though for some reason when she ordered the computer to shoot at her with real bullets the dang thing protested. Letting out a frustrated sound, Megara just walked over to one of the training dummies and dragged it to the middle of the floor. Taking a bow staff she found against the wall she stretched her arms a bit and than went at the dumbing, beating it to nothing as she worked out her feelings.

My job is to make tomorrow's world better. Always has been.


Steve had been reading over some on the Intelligence reports he was getting back from the people that he knew in the CIA, State and other Governmental positions. It was one of the benefits of being a living legend that people tended to believe in you and the things that you represented and so he had been reading over those reports about the situation in Nigeria. Africa was one of those countries that hadn't managed to find its way, a land bound with history but it was a history soaked in blood and that was something that would never go away. Africa was one of those places though that he knew that White Men would never be able to resolve the situation, change had to happen through the people there like it did for any Nation or in this case Nations and those changes would only take place once the people had experienced enough and forced the issue. It was idealistic but it also happened to be the truth as he had seen too many examples through out history where other Nations had tried to help in areas that were troubled like the Middle East and it almost always made the situation worse. As much as it pained him to admit there were problems in the world even the AVENGERS couldn't resolve and the situation in Nigeria was a great example but then there was a cost to that as well. People were dying there, being wiped out because of what tribe they belonged to and that in anyone's book was just plain wrong.

From the reports he was reading, things had gone south in Nigeria exactly when Logan had gone in with Megara, it had been bad but from what he was reading things had gotten worse. Logan in that mix meant that things were just going to spiral and he was concerned because he had heard stories of what Logan was like but he had never really seen the feral side of the man and he was glad that he hadn't because if even half of the rumors were true then he was truly a man to be feared. Perhaps that was one of the reasons that he kept to himself and when he went on these missions, he often went alone but that was why he had sent Megara in the first place so that if he did get out of control then there would be someone there capable of bringing him back into line. But there was a price to be paid especially if some of the reports he read were true, they had found bodies torn apart as if by some sort of animal and from the numbers they were talking at least a company strength, that was a 100+ men as well as support personnel and vehicles. Now he would have some reservations about taking on a such a force on his own even with Megara those odds weren't ones that he would favour but Logan was the most dangerous man on the planet and if he was responsible for this then he had earned his reputation but at what cost?

Their base sensors detected someone outside their base and upon reviewing the camera footage he saw it was that SHIELD agent John Bartlett but carrying only Megara which wasn't a good sign. She immediately rushed into the base and Steve resolved to find her but he heard her in the shower and decided to give her the privacy she was warranted, he could wait. Soon enough he could hear her in the training room, she had such an intensity about her and it was obviously that she was angry though if it was at Logan, the situation they had been in or even at him there was no way to know but when she ordered up live ammunition to be fired at her he knew things were serious however she ran afoul of the safety protocols that SHIELD had and so she took to destroying one of their practice dummies. Now, some people would have come into this with a jest of some sort or a joke to try and lighten the mood but he could see that would be a mistake, she was angry and she was taking that anger out on the dummy which was good, he didn't want to provoke her into turning it on him. As the remaining crumbs of the dummy swirled around the floor, Steve grabbed one of the other training staffs and stretched out a bit to gain her attention "So you want to talk while you work out this anger on a live target?" It would do her good to work it out on someone that could fight back and perhaps give her some focus so she could share the results of the mission with him without completely destroying their base here.

Megara was focus enough on the dummy that was becoming nothing but a mess before her that she had not noticed Steve had entered. Ok she really wasn’t focus on the dummy her mind was elsewhere but the dummy was taking the hits as her mind went over again and again what had happened in Africa. In the training room she revisited not only Logan’s attack on the camp but every bit of it, and how she was unable to really do anything. Making her wonder why Steve had wanted her to go in the first place. That was just the first of many questions that she wanted answered as she went on turing the dummy into dust.

Upon hearing Steve’s voice Megara turned around quickly to face him, already he had grabbed his own staff and was warming up his arms. Megara couldn't deny the flutter her heart seemed to take the moment she saw him, and a part of her wanted to walk right up to kiss him. However the other part of her that was upset caused her to stay rooted to the ground. Maybe she was a little angry with Steve as well, she didn’t know. In truth Megara had never felt so many emotions so strongly and all at once like she was doing now. When Tom had died she had felt sorrow and lost, but not anger or discuss not even frustration. Now it seemed she had the whole range of emotions all mixed up inside her right now; and upon seeing Steve she could add happy and love to that mix to which only seemed to fuel the other emotions she was feeling.

Steve was offering himself as a living target while she worked out what she was feeling. “I tried getting this thing to shoot at me, but it refused. I thought you stated it was for training.” Megara moved in quickly and brought her staff down on Steve, not fearing that he would be able to block it. They maybe be lovers but she would not go easy on him right now, and she would hope he would do the same.

Steve had to wonder if he was doing the right thing as he grabbed the fighting staff and with a quick twist split it up into two fighting sticks, having trained with these during the war and they were more familiar. But despite his years of training on the battlefield and in the Army, Megara literally had centuries of experience on him and she was far stronger than he was as well which was something to consider given her mood. In no way did he feel like he was in danger but there was a chance that in her mood she might strike him a bit harder than she meant to and that would make her feel worse knowing her as he did. Steve looked her over and he could see in her eyes that she had seen things that had shaken her to her very core, he knew that look because he had it when they had liberated the camps back during the war. Nothing could prepare you for what you saw when you went to a place like that and given the situation over in Nigeria including the head of the General in charge being mounted on a pike outside of the Presidential Palace. Subtlety was not something that Logan was capable of when he was angered which was interesting because when he was calm, that was usually the way that he operated, getting in and out with a minimum of fuss because that was the professional side of it. But when the feral, raging part of him took over then he would leave a line of bodies a mile long behind him and what made things worse was that he didn't seem to care that much about the fact that he had taken that many lives. Steve could remember a couple of times where he had heard about Logan doing things like that before he recruited him and yet he still took him on as his head of security because of those reasons. Steve knew himself well enough to know that there were things that he wasn't capable of doing but Logan and Bucky were able to get those things done and they could live with it as well which he also wasn't sure he could do.

"Well this was a SHIELD facility before we took it over as our main base of operations and all of these training dummies have safety protocols so they aren't going to fire lethal rounds at you unless it is authorised by two command level staff." Steve could certainly do it along with one other but he wasn't sure that he wanted to do that, the last thing that he wanted Megara to do was to hurt herself because she was angered and wanted to punish either herself or everyone else around her. The situation in Nigeria had completely fallen apart and the fact that Megara had come back alone meant that Logan was still over there and her reaction told him that things had not gone well between them which was going to be a problem. He needed them to both be on the same side but Megara was like him, idealistic whereas Logan had no problems operating in that morally grey area that he had claimed as his own. She came at him with her staff striking downward towards him and where she would usually have skill, precision and grace all she had this time was strength and a remarkable lack of timing and so he reacted as a warrior would. Waiting for the precise moment when her staff was about to hit him, Steve stepped to the side and then tapped her staff as it went by dragging her off balance by adding his own strength to her forward momentum. Assuming this went as it should, he immediately dropped down and swung into a reverse tiger sweep that would know her off her feet as she stumbled forward, it would require perfect timing but could be absolutely devastating for someone whose attack was horribly weighted forward. Rolling backward and up onto his feet, Steve waited in his defensive stance "So you want to tell me what happened?"

In truth Megara didn’t want to hear about the reason why the computer wouldn’t do what she had asked of it to do, it was part of her training after all and it was suppose to help her with the training. In her current mood she couldn’t see how it was most likely a good thing this computer wouldn't shoot live rounds at a person, not because she would have gotten hurt but because some fool would have most likely thought they could do what she was able to do. What they didn’t realize it was because of her blood and the fact that Amazons had been training for thousands of years to be able to do what she did. Granted they didn’t always have guns for such things but still only true Amazons could reflect bullets back with their bracers. That was what she had wanted to do when she had entered the training room, it would force her to focus on something other than the images in her head instead she had been left to beat the crap out of a dummy. “How do I get permission,” With her current frustration she couldn’t see how Steve was concern for her, if she did she would know already he would be telling her no or give her the run around. He was worried about the state of her mind and if it would in fact be in the right place to block bullets or if she would have gotten hurt. The chances were she would have gotten hurt.

He was able to prove just that to her as Megara came down with her staff, she allowed her attack to be sloppy and so lunged to far forward and without any real grace to it allowing Steve not only to side step but to kick her feet out from under her, sending Megara down to land on her back side while Steve popped back up in a fighting stance. The fall didn’t hurt, Megara had fallen enough in her life to take a fall but it did hurt her pride a little to be taken down like that. However it was a wake-up call that she needed to focus, so she moved slowly back to her feet giving her a moment to focus her mind before stepping forward and attacking Steve again. This time she wasn’t as sloppy but went on hitting at him with blows that he would easily block. It was almost like basic technique for the two of them but still with enough speed that it was clear the two were not new at this. Mostly she had done this so that she could in fact talk, if she didn’t walk to talk anymore well than she would let the bow staff talk. “You read the reports, you know what happen what more do you want me to say. I failed.” There one of the heart of the problems that was going on inside of her.

My job is to make tomorrow's world better. Always has been.


It was funny but this situation reminded him of his days training just after he had gotten the serum, just because he had developed to peak human potential didn't mean that he had the skills to use it so the Army had gotten him into an advanced training program to give him the knowledge he would need to use his talents. One of his hand to hand combat trainers, Sargent Sean O'Brian who was in charge of the boxing component of his training gave him a lesson that he had taken into nearly every tactical situation that he had ever been a part of. The Sargent had said "Son, if you go in with your head not there then the first thing that'll disappear is your ass." That was right before he landed a big right hook on his chin and knocked him flat on his ass and he had been right too, Steve was still caught up in Dr Erskine's murder and if he was going to survive in combat then he had to learn how to put those distractions behind him and concentrate on what was in front of him. He had hurt her pride, that much he could see in her eyes as much as he was a soldier, Megara had been raised and trained as a warrior and there was an important difference there that not many understood. A Warrior embraced everything about combat and used it to make them the best that they could be whereas soldiers had to follow orders and limit their actions according to a strict code, something not all warriors could claim.

Megara came at him with a prescribed set of strikes, he was familiar with them and knew that this sort of thing was designed to set him up for a devastating strike at the end of the set if he didn't counter them. So following that line of thought, Steve gave up ground to gain position, his feet moving backwards as he countered each of the blows that came at up preventing him from being locked into the final guard position that would leave him vulnerable "I have but I want to hear things from your perspective. I sent you with Logan and now you come back alone. I am guessing things happened over there that the media are unaware of." As her final strike came in, Steve reacted by rolling to the side and firing a strike at her mid section and head instead of countering the blow itself "Failed? I am not sure how that is possible Megara. You had a mission to keep an eye on Logan and to help him from going into a wholesale slaughter, from what I have read the only people that were killed were active combatants and we both know that people die in combat situations especially soldiers. I read about the hostages too, I am assuming that Dr. Bethany Farris was Logan's friend?" Steve rolled to the side to get out of the way of the strikes that were coming his way as he waited for her answer, the very notion that she had failed just seemed like an impossibility to him. One of the things that he loved about Megara was that she was an idealist like him, both of them had seen some terrible things and so he knew what this reaction was from her. It was a mixture of guilt, loathing and horror but it was figuring which was what and why that he was trying to get out of her as he continued to spar with her.

Megara’s mind would not banish the thought of all that blood, even with her trying to focus on the fight with Steve. Maybe that was why she let him take those steps back in order to gain a better position and block her blows. Though in truth she had not decided to try hard as she wanted the chance to talk while she hit something, maybe she was letting her feelings for Steve get in the way at this moment. If it was anyone else would she even be willing to talk or just trying to turn them to dust like she had the dummy. With Steve she didn’t want to hurt him, so instead of fullying working out her frustration she was just letting it simmer. Than he wanted her to talk about it, which only brought it up fresh in her mind and made the pain and anger fresh.

As if to give her point on how she felt she strike down at Steve, who just rolled to the side and aimed a strike at her midsection and her head. Using her staff she blocked the blow to her midsection but she quickly brought up her arm to block the blow to her head with the bracer on her arm before using her shoulder to push him back and away. “If you have not been given report of the bloodbath that took place than I will be shocked. I am sure Africa is already calling your government demanding to know the meaning of what happen.” Not that they were on the good side of the government right now, but Logan’s stunt would not help Steve’s team at all; another thing for Megara to add to her list of why she failed.

Speaking of failing Steve was quickly to tell her that she had not failed, that she was sent to keep and eye on Logan and help him from going into a wholesale slaughter. That was all that she heard, for her anger at the moment seemed to take over and once again a few things in the room started to shake as Steve’s words where lost on her. She brought down the staff which he rolled to the side to get out of the way, but she was done playing around. With one movement she had tossed her own staff to the side and grabbed Steve’s bow staff in the middle. Than with him still holding onto it she moved quickly, falling backwards until her she was on her back; pulling Steve down toward her. Than with her legs she pushed him up and over the top of her; flipping him over to land on his back; to which Megara completed her own roll and was now straddling Steve. Using the staff between them she pushed her weight down on his chest to pin him there. “Did you hear what you said Steve, I was sent to stop him from a wholesale slaughter, how many people have to be slaughtered until you call it a wholesale slaughter Steve. As far as I see it, I couldn’t stop him from killing every man and boy in that camp. Nor could I stop him from going to the capital and killing again.” It was clear in her voice that she was in pain from this, but she showed no tears only that she wanted Steve to understand that she believed she had failed. She had failed him and she had failed her purpose of coming back to Man’s world, all in just a few days and one trip to Africa she had failed.

Megara was right from her perspective, Logan had killed a lot of people and the Government of Nigeria was protesting what they called an assassination of their military leader though at this point they didn't have a name other than Reaper Mayaba, but anyone who knew Logan would understand that it was him. It was a headache that he knew was coming and now he was getting a sense of what it was like to be Scott because Logan had much to speak about his character but when he was determined upon a course there was nothing that could stand in his way which was one of the reasons that he had sent along Megara. She was one of the few people that could stop Logan due to her strength, durability and centuries of combat experience and while Logan was one of the most dangerous people on the planet he would bet on Megara if it came down to a fight between the two of them but that line was pretty thin. The real issue here was that Logan was able to do what he had needed to over there while Megara was there which meant that she had to make a choice, to allow him to do this because there was a part of her that wanted him to dispense justice. Steve was not a fool, he was aware of the slaughter that took place in some of those countries and wished that he could get in there and fight the good fight where it needed to be fought but he understood that a white man was not going to resolve the issues in Africa but that didn't matter to Logan. With his skills, powers and determination there wasn't really a prayer for the people that he held responsible for the death of his friend and he would never stop either until the people responsible or at least that he held responsible were dead.

Following along with her attack, Steve fell upon his back as she spoke to him and as she held him pin Steve reacted and swung his hips so that his centre of balance was held and sent her flying off of him and then he took a defensive position back on the balls of his feet so he could hold his balance against her counter strike as he rolled back onto his feet "So you failed, I can understand that. You don't think I've failed before? You did your best at least that is what I believed and what Logan did was absolutely wrong, those boys and men out there were for the most part following orders but they were slaughtering innocent people because of their tribe if the reports I have read are to be believed. Logan was always going to leave a trail of bodies, death tends to follow him but that doesn't mean we have to approve but I ask you, how many of those soldiers deserved what they got? I was there just like you when we found those camps back during WW2, we saw allied soldiers shooting German troops who had held those camps, is this any different from the slaughter we saw then? I don't know if I have the moral authority to judge that man, he has a dark side that is true but I have seen him sacrifice himself time and time again for his friends for complete strangers because he believed he was right. Logan follows his own course, always has but that darkness he carries is his burden love not yours. You did your best, I am willing to bet there were times when he wanted to go even further but you stopped him, I grieve for the soldiers who died out there but this isn't something that you have to carry alone Megara, there is darkness in the world but there is a lot of good out there as well just look at the TV over there." It showed FOX News interviewing the hostage survivors including a nurse who spoke about the man that they owed their lives to, that they were scheduled for execution as soon as the ransom was paid. They had heard the soldiers talk about that and so if it weren't for the intervention of two special people they all would have died and to a person, all of the rescued hostages thanked their saviors simply saying that they knew who they were.

I will fight for those who cannot fight for themselves
Courage and Valor
Megara was hopping as she pinned Steve to the ground that this would be the end of it, that he would see fully why she felt the way she did and they could move on about it. She was done fighting him, she was in fact pretty much done with Man’s world at this point after seeing what Logan had done she didn’t know if there was really any justice or love left in this world to fight for. It was true Amazon’s were warriors, but they were warriors now for peace. They used their weapons of war only when they had to, which had not been much since the time they had found home on the island. They lived in peace and that was all they wanted, there were times of war on the island when people found them, but they didn’t kill them unless there was no choice. No most of the time the Amazon captured their enemies, question the, fixed their wounds, than sent them on their way, death only came when there was no other choice. What Logan had done however was far beyond what Megara was even able to do, she had fought to protect herself and others but her blade only took the live of men that had not stood down; or to kill those in mercy that Logan had left to suffer.

This was not the end of whatever you wanted to call what Steve and her were doing, instead of just yelding and talking with her he had forced her off and back onto his feet. Megara had a choice now she could get back up and fight, or she could stay down. She chose the latter as she crossed her legs while she sat on the floor listening to Steve talk for a moment, though his words did little to help with the darkness that was now inside her mind and creeping slowly to her heart.

“The difference is those men were fighting, they did not lay down their weapons and beg for their lives. Never have I killed a unarmed man, never had I gone after a man who beg for his life. I don’t kill in cold blood, I don’t kill to fulfil my thirst for blood; and I don’t travel to the capital of some place to hunt down a public figure just to hang his head for the world to see. “ Looking up at Steve Megara couldn’t help the tears that showed in her eyes but she fought them back hard. “Is this what man’s World has become Steve, people killing each other for their own personal revenge, not because they they believe in something. But to go out and cut people down because they did wrong to you.” Oh she knew that many of those men that had died out there had deserved it, and many had wanted to die as they fought on. But there had been scared men there too, who at the first sign of something else had thrown down their guns and beg to be set free, to have their lives spared, but yet they were killed as well. It had been a waste and all it did was cause Megara to question what her role of returning was now, what hope could she really bring to this world.

Megara cast her eyes toward the TV but that didn’t bring her any joy to see those people that had been saved, no it was just a reminder of the blood she had allowed to be spilled. Yes it was good these people were free, that they were now home but what about that poor mother that was worried for the son that had been taken from her and forced to fight for a cause he didn’t believe in. Who would grieve with that woman, no one she would be forced to wonder the world forever hoping for a son to come home that never would. Standing Megara threw the staff to the floor and started to walk away, the memory of everything that happen in Africa was to strong now and she wanted to get away from anything that reminded her of it.

Steve stood down and let his combat staves to fall to his side, she was in a lot of pain and couldn't see this situation for what it was. Logan was the darker side of humanity there was no arguing that, he could do those things that nearly no one else on their side could manage except for Bucky and he would never ask those things of him after all that Buck had been through. Megara however hadn't seen the darker nature of man not really, she had been exposed to the general evil of war but to see someone like Logan doing what he did best had left its scars on her and it was going to take some time for her to recover from this experience which was one of the things that he had wanted her to learn when he had sent her on this mission. He had guessed that things were going to turn sideways on this which was why he had sent her not just to help with Logan but to give her some perspective, the world wasn't perfect and not everyone saw things like they did which was a problem that he had and one he saw in her as well. Now she had seen what it was to be out there with someone whose values were far different from theirs, she was going to have to learn that not everything shone through in black and white and that for most people they moved ahead trying to be their best but often finding that they were a mix of their own best and worst selves.

Walking up to her, he took her into his arms and held her as she needed him too right now "That is a part of it, not everywhere is what we would both like it to be. The world is imperfect just like the people who live in it but I would counsel against judging all of us by the actions of one person. I think I have proved that I am not like Logan and while he has made his choices and yeah he kills, he has to live with the Mark of Caine upon him. Man's world isn't perfect and it isn't meant to be perfect because we are all flawed, all of us but that doesn't mean that we give up on it. Because there are good people out there, people just wanting to live their lives and find some kind of joy in it. Don't walk away from all of them, they don't deserve to be judged by the actions of one person love." This was going to be a rough lesson for Megara but it was one that she needed to learn just like he had when he had first started to come back to the world after Fury had recovered him from the ice. Everything was so much darker and different from the world that they had known and it was only a matter of time before reality had hit Megara square in the face and if she was going to make this world her home, she was going to need to understand this figure this out and learn how to live with it just like he had.

I will fight for those who cannot fight for themselves
Courage and Valor
Megara didn’t want to be touched, she didn’t want to talk anymore but when Steve walked up to her and held out his arms she found herself walking into them and resting her forehead right on his chest. She didn’t wrap her arms around him in return, instead she just stood there his arms around her and her forehead on his chest; rising and falling with each one of his breaths. Steve went on to remind her that the world was not perfect, that it had it’s good and it’s bad. That not everyone was like Logan, just like not everyone was like him. Megara couldn’t help but get the feeling that Steve hadn’t really just sent her out there to try to help Logan; or to stop him. But for her to see what Logan was going to do, to have her witness first hand the darkness that was man. She had only heard of tails of blood lust, but now she had witness it first hand and it scared her. “I fear Steve that Logan is more deadly than that of Ares.” Ares the god of war loved bloodshed but she could not even recount a story of Ares going this far as Logan had. Granted Ares hardly ever did the act of killing as it was, he just inspired man to do so. Though from what she had seen now it was clear the world didn’t need Ares to inspire them to kill; they wanted to do that all on their own.

Letting out a sigh Megara turned her head so her check was not resting on Steve’s chest. “I can see it every time I close my eyes Steve, I can smell it every time I breath, and I hear the screams of death and innocents all mixed together. I fear I will never sleep again, for I do not long to know what my dreams will now hold.” Her voice was calmer now, Steve would be able to feel the fight leaving her body as she just stood there trying to take in warmth from his body into what felt like her cold dead one. For that was how Megara felt right now, she felt cold and dead inside. She wanted to close her eyes, to let her body rest but each time she closed them for longer than just a blink she was visited by the images that were now forever in her memory. Only forcing her to open her eyes again and vowing never to close them just so she could spare herself from seeing all that carnage again. This wasn’t possible she knew it, she would have to sleep soon but how could se dare to even think of rest.

My job is to make tomorrow's world better. Always has been.


Megara was truly shaken by the events that she had witnessed while Logan went about depopulating the country of Nigeria, a troubled land that was only going to continue to suffer as the military completely collapsed. That was something that he had noted on their return journey, with the death of the Command Staff the military had splintered into separate factions all vying for power. This meant that they weren't trying to kill the other tribes in the area but it did mean that the Civil War going on their was becoming far worse as military units engaged each other in an attempt to seize power, it was a slaughter and there weren't any safe spaces in that country, not any more. Perhaps Logan wanted this, perhaps he didn't but his actions were having consequences that they were all going to have to live with, he had taken some time coming back and given Megara's reaction that had been a wise move on his part. Logan wasn't going to apologise, in fact he was bound to be thinking that he had done what needed to be done so there was no convincing him to apologise to Megara for what she had witnessed. That was just one of the problems with Logan, he accepted responsibility for his own actions but how those actions were taken on board by others heck that was their problem and the fact that he didn't give a damn what people thought of him in almost any circumstance meant that the usual attempts at persuasion weren't going to work. How could you explain that you needed this to happen when the other party would stare you straight in the eye and tell you to grow the hell up because the world wasn't pretty and she wasn't supposed to be there in the first place. This is your mess Rogers, you clean it up because it ain't my job, he knew Logan well enough to know what the man would say to him and the worst part of it was that Logan was right, it was his mess and he had to start cleaning this up.

"He might well be worse than Ares but here is a question for you, who would you prefer to fight against the God of War than a warrior that embodies everything that War represents? I wouldn't want to face Logan if everything he loved was on the line, he will never stop and would never stand down if the world was on the line and given the world we are in, there is a need for people like him." It was a disappointing admission and he was sure that she would reject that suggestion but it was something to consider, men like Logan were needed to do those things that neither one of them were comfortable with carrying out. Logan was unique in the aspect that he was comfortable doing almost anything to achieve the mission objective and in the war that they were engaged with, having someone with that sort of moral flexibility was essential "I can't say that your nightmares will ever go away completely. All soldiers have bad dreams, that is part of the sacrifice that we make in serving others but I can promise you that they will begin to fade in time and that you were learn to live with it. Its not easy I know and I wish I had something that I could say that would fix this but this is a part of the world that you needed to see, there are places where the dark rises and I wanted you to see it so that you understood why I am fighting as hard as I am. If this law is allowed to spread then those dark places will grow and more people will fall victim to ethnic purges not because of their blood but because of their genetic gifts and I will not allow that, not ever." He squeezed her in his arms to let her know that he understood and that he was there for her as he always would be.

I will fight for those who cannot fight for themselves
Courage and Valor
Megara didn't’ answer Steve with who would she rather have, Ares or someone like Logan. Maybe it was because for Megara she would rather fight Ares, partly because she had been born to be the one to keep Ares in check. She held the sword and the power that was needed to kill a god if it came to it; and so far it had not come to it. Granted Ares and the Amazons had butted heads a few times, Megara had even faced him in battled once that had ended in her favor but with great lost as well. No she would have no problems facing someone like Ares because she knew what he stood for and what he was about. Someone like Logan, whom she had cared and respected now that was someone she didn’t want to face ever. How could you after respecting someone has she had Logan now be forced to watch him just take lives as if they didn’t matter, to throw human lives down the drain and bath in their blood. No she didn’t want to face people like Logan who had no problem stopping at nothing to do what they thought was right, no matter the cost. To them the needs of the few out weight the many if it was someone they loved that was the few.

Megara closed her eyes as Steve held her, telling her that her nightmare would not go away but they would fade in time. He also told her the world was a dark place and that was why he was fighting. The question now was the world so dark now that her father would demand she return home, that Man’s World would be considered a lost cause and Themyscira will then be forced further into mist to be forgotten by the world as it tore itself apart. In other words had Man’s World become so bad that it would not longer be given the protection of an Amazon, to help teach the world there could be peace in strength. Closing her eyes tighter Megara felt the tug, the call to return home. Maybe it was her father calling her, maybe her mother and sisters, or maybe it was her own blood longing to see Themyscira again. To bath in the healing springs to help her trouble heart and mind. “Steve I must return home.” She said softly into his chest, knowing he wouldn’t be happy with those words. After all they had just found solstice with each other and here she was telling him she was leaving.

Looking up she looked into the blue eyes she knew so well now. “I must return home, I feel the call of my island. I do not know if it’s my father, my mother, or maybe my own heart that needs to return in order for me to heal but I must return. If I do not heed this call it will only grow worse.” Maybe it was just her own desire to escape this dark world and return to one of peace and love for a little while. She knew that on Themsycria they would be able to help her clear her mind, and after this kind of batter her soul needed to be healed as well; so she had to return home.

My job is to make tomorrow's world better. Always has been.


Steve had to admit that he hadn't expected Megara to want to go home but after what she had just seen and experienced perhaps taking a break wasn't such a bad idea after all. The mission he had sent her on with Logan had taken a toll that was for certain, she hadn't been prepared for the violence that could follow him when Logan was out in the field and while he had hoped that his friend was alive, Steve knew that there would be consequences if she wasn't. Logan was one of those few individuals that thought in absolutes and if he was convinced that his action was correct there wasn't much that anyone could really do to stop him short of violence though he had heard that such was not the case with Doctor Jean Grey. However, that was a conversation to be had another day, right now he was having to deal with Megara and how much this mission had scarred her and that was a problem. It was essential in his view that she saw the best and the worst in this world because that way she could make an informed choice about what was going on in the world around her and choose what it was that she was going to fight for with the right reasons, not because of the people around her.

But this retreat back to her Island, it might just encourage her to stay in Paradise, who wouldn't be tempted in his opinion but that wasn't a good enough reason. There were a lot of people that didn't have that choice and if they had to stay here and deal with the world they were in then he owed them the same fidelity but that was his choice not hers. But there was a way that he could try and influence her choices here while ensuring that she would come back to all of them out here in the reality they all had to live with so he wrapped his arms around her tightly as he kissed her cheek "I understand love, so I would like to come with you. If we are going to be partners then I should at least meet your mother and friends, from my understanding of history and lore they do have a dim view of men in general so perhaps I could start building a bridge between the Amazons and the rest of the world." Given their history, it would not surprise him if he received a cool welcome or even a hostile one but he was willing to work to get her family to approve of their relationship and to prove himself to the rest of her friends on the Island. Men had not covered themselves in glory as a gender but they were evolving, striving to become better and if he could try and give them a different perspective along with proving himself to all of them that he was a worthy partner for Megara then so much the better.

I will fight for those who cannot fight for themselves
Courage and Valor
Megara wanted to retreat and the call home was a chance to do just that. She would return home, she would have her soul cleaned from this nightmare and refresh herself as well. Megara also knew why her mother or father would be calling her back now, and the reason was holding her in his arms. By now they would know about her and Steve having been together, not just in this fight but in an intimate way as well. She could almost feel her father disapproving, not to mention her mother as well. Perhaps if she had not gone with Logan she might not have felt the pull to return home as strong as she did now. It was a custom after all for Amazon's to bath and heal their souls when they had been sent to wars like the one she had return from; a chance to wash the blood of their hands and make them whole again so to speak. The ritual had happen only twice since Megara had been born, and both times had been when she had returned from the great world wars. Those rituals however had only been to cleans her and allow her to return once again to be with her sisters; this one would be a ritual to help her heal her mind and heart so that she could once again face whatever she must. That is if her father allowed her to return, the fact that she and Steve were sleeping together would most like complicate that matter.

Steve seemed to understand her need to go back, though she could feel it in his arms as he hugged her tighter that he wasn’t happy about it. She wanted to tell him that she would be back, but how could she when she didn’t know. It wasn’t like she could just get in a plane and fly back when ever she wanted, no the only way to Themyscira was by boat, and only if you had the permission from the gods to travel that way. Other wise you ended up somewhere else or became lost at sea forever. It was the same way when you left the island, that was why her sisters never left; well that and they were happy. Than Steve kissed her cheek and told her that he understood but that he wanted to come with her. This causes Megara to look up quickly and take a step back; not enough to walk out of his arms but enough to look up at him as he went on to explain that if they were to be together he needed to meet her family; and maybe he could be a way to bridge the gap between Amazons and the rest of the world.

“Steve I don't’ think you understand what you are asking.” Megara said her eyes looking deep into his as if waiting for him to say he was kidding. After a moment when he didn’t laugh or tell her that he was joking she went on. “You travel with me to Themyscira you will be arrested the moment your foot hits the sand. You than will be taken before my mother and her advisors and they will question you. At the end of it all you will be placed in the area to fight for your life.” Megara had never seen it done before, but she had heard the stories. If anyone came to the island that was not invited they would be forced to fight for their lives. If they won they were granted their desire. Many women who had found and fought their way had wished to stay on the island; those challenges were normally of a softer nature as Amazon really welcome any woman into the fold of sister if she desired. Where as the men that had found their way normally wished to rule over the island or take an Amazon as his slave; these challenges never ended well for the man. Megara had to wonder what would Steve wish for when he won; since the idea of him losing was to much to bare.
