Salt of the Earth; Avengers x Reader
Description: Fem!Reader Y/n is taken in by the Avengers for protection. As she gets older, we see the stories of her life with them and how she bonds.
Warnings: none ??
Y/n was only three when she first met the Avengers. She was brought into the Avengers by her parents after they realized her gift. Y/n wasn’t a normal child, she had lavender colored eyes and extremely heightened senses. It’s just the way she was born; however, when her family realized she could control nearly all of the elements on the periodic table, her parents made the decision to ensure her protection. It was a good thing too, with the downfall of Hydra and S.H.I.E.L.D., any desperate Hydra executive would want someone like Y/N.
The day Y/n walked into the safe house, all eyes were on her. Mr. Stark turned to her parents and introduced them to the team - Steve Rogers, Natasha Romanoff, The Vision, Bruce Banner, Wanda Maximoff, Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, and Thor Odinson and Clint Barton (they were just visiting). They all looked surprised to see someone so young in the house, even Peter Parker had a few years on Y/n. Nevertheless, the team welcomed her with open arms and bright smiles, promising her parents that they’d take care of her.
The first night, Y/n lay awake sobbing. The child missed her parents. It was that night that Steve Rogers, woken up by F.R.I.D.A.Y, walked across the hall to her room and scooped her up. He walked up and down the halls, humming to her as he rocked her in his arms. He knew what it was like to miss someone.
