It's just a normal day for billionaire, genius, superhero Tony Stark. A morning of coffee, distracting Super-Soldiers and an argument over novelty mugs before he heads to Greenwich Village to chat with a certain sorcerer. Of course, it all goes to shit when stumbles across the wrong higher dimensional being, and he somehow finds himself seventy-five years in the past. With no armored suit, money or place to go, Tony isn't sure what to do. Until he stumbles across a group of men in an alley who are standing around a small figure with blonde hair and familiar blue eyes.
Seriously, what had been in that coffee?
A chance for different first impressions allows him a new look at his future teammates and gives Tony the chance to realize some things about himself along the way.
Still, screw magic.
- Part 1 of Love in A Hopeless Place
05 May 2021
Life for Tony Stark has changed a lot in the past four months: the rogue Avengers were pardoned and have moved back into the tower with him; Thor returned to earth with his infamous brother, Bruce Banner, and all of Asgard after their planet was destroyed; and summer vacation recently started—which means Tony worries almost constantly about his little spider protégé who can never seem to stay out of trouble.
Life has also changed a lot for James “Bucky” Barnes since he was thawed out for what he hopes to be the last time in his life. Princess Shuri of Wakanda finally managed to erase all of the verbal triggers Hydra used to control his brain, and she also gifted him a new arm made of Vibranium. Bucky is now trying to catch up on everything he missed during the past 70 years.
As Bucky returns to America, he finds himself moving into the home of the one person who terrifies him the most—Tony Stark. Little does he know, Tony is just as frightened of living with the man formerly known as the Winter Soldier. However, as time goes by, the two men slowly come to realize that getting to know one another might actually be a blessing in disguise.

Tony Stark REALLY hates magic with a passion. He knows it's got something to do with how his memories aren't quite as he remembers them. He knows Steve screwed him over and sent him that shitty apology with an even shittier phone. And he is pissed supposedly with no end in sight and no resolution to be had. And yet, he also has this other set of memories - One where he is madly in love with Steve...
Steve Rogers REALLY feels like things with Tony could've gone a lot better. So he stubbornly stays in the Avengers compound to try to set things to rights, vowing to repair his Avengers family and his friendship with Tony. And yet, his endgame is still to help Bucky get rid of the Winter Soldier programming - Help his first and the one true love of his life to find himself again...
Bucky Barnes REALLY loathes having to rely on others to tell him about his life. Steve is a big help, but sometimes, Bucky feels like Steve's after helping him for the benefit of the person he used to be rather than the person he is. Unlike Steve, Tony doesn't give a shit about him. And yet, it's with Tony that he feels like he can be or do anything - Like fall in love with the man he had orphaned all those years ago...

When Tony is handed a cat carrier by a bloody and battered Steve, he thinks Steve wants him to simply take the cat to the vet and babysit it. That should be a simple task, after all - this is Steve's cat, and Tony loves cats - he'd do anything to keep one safe and sound. He hadn't thought he would have another cat living with him after his old cat, Peggs, died of old age. Tony knows cats. This should be a piece of cake. Unfortunately for Tony, the cat isn't exactly a cat - it's Bucky Barnes.
"Hear me out," Buck said. "Clearly, both of us are sick of dating other people. And we're a good fit, in pretty much every way that matters. So what if we're not in love? We don't need to be in love to be happy together."
Eddie frowned. "So basically, we'd be boyfriends, without benefits?"
"Yes!" Buck snapped his fingers. "Like platonic boyfriends! We'd get all the benefits of a relationship and none of the heartbreak."
And maybe Eddie had finally lost his mind, or maybe it was from all the alcohol clouding his judgment, but the idea of it didn't sound half as crazy as it should have.
After Buck’s and Eddie’s dates both end with disasters – proving once again that maybe dating just wasn’t meant for them – they decide to simply settle for each other. If there was one person in the world they'd ever trust with their hearts, it was each other. And who was a better person to date other than your very own best friend?
