The concept of causation is an easy one: you track events back until you find the one pebble that started the ripple, the event that set off the chain reaction. Bruce can track his life back and back, from Detective Munroe’s appearance in their home, to Jessica Jones’s meddling, to a fire a few miles away, to his settled family life with Tony and Miles.
He’s not sure how the links fit together, or whether the chain might unravel.
But that’s never stopped him and Tony before, now has it?
In this chapter, Halloween celebrations are dampened by children coping with loss, school struggles, review hearings, and the cold reality of Bruce and Tony’s careers.
This chapter is longer than usual, because I adore you guys. Also, special thanks to uofmdragon and montanagirlm for guiding me on the “special guest” attorney for this chapter. Because lord knows, I am low on Marvel characters at this point.
