Author's Note: This is the sequel to "The Hunters and the Prey". It takes place almost directly on the events of that story. I will be posting on Tuesdays and Saturdays as usual.
Summary: Phil Coulson, Ianto Jones, and Stephen Strange, the triumvirate at the Head of the Wizard's Guild, have their hands full. Loki has escaped his prison in Asgard, with the help of the last of Hydra. A new magical threat in the form of powerful Artifacts may be on the horizon. Even more evidence of neglect of Cardinal and Void children comes to light. It can only get worse.
Clint Barton's life is finally looking up. He has a family that he thought he would never have. But then he sees a face from a past he would just rather forget. And a prophecy by the UnEarthly Child is about to come to pass.
Steve Rogers is settling into his new job as Knights' Commander of Triskelia, and his life would only get better if his best friend, Bucky, were able to join him in it. But Bucky has been cursed by Hydra, and there's no guarantee he'll ever be the same even after the curses have been removed.
Oh, and Tony Stark is messing with something he really shouldn't. So what else is new?
Baron Nick Fury has a plan. One that will either work out, or be an absolute disaster. No one is quite sure which it will be. Not even the people involved.
Events are moving to their inevitable conclusion. Or are they?
