"Courage is not the absence of fear. It is acting in spite of it."

So I just found a story on AO3 on one of my favourite moments of the Avengers film.

Warning: Spoilers for the Avengers.

Title: Remember

Summary: The old man in the square in Stuttgart remembers.

Wordcount: 505

Chris!Notes: Short, beautifully bitter(sweet), lovely. A story that I felt needed to be told.

Christoph Schindler is 83 years old. He has five children, and eight grandchildren. His wife has been dead for two years and he knows he will follow her soon. He is still healthy. He lives alone in the house they bought together in 1956, and every evening he walks the streets of Stuttgart and marvels at how much his country has changed.
