    Summary

    Tony has a vision in his mind for the day he graduates from college. It’s been there since he was just a kid and the furthest ahead he could imagine for himself was that day. At the time it seemed like a hundred years away, and it carried an allure of freedom that was nearly unfathomable back then.

    The reality ends up disappointing, until Steve changes that.

    Summary

    Sitting quietly like this, Tony can almost pretend that nothing has happened, that this is just another normal day of Steve waking up in bed next to him. Married and in love with no threat of divorce looming on the horizon.

    Of course, that is before he catches sight of Steve’s bereft ring finger.

    He wonders how long it has been since Steve’s ring finger is empty.

    He wonders if he should start taking off his own, too. He wonders if Steve wants him to take it off.

    Summary

    “Hello,” Steve whispers quietly, carefully brushing some of the tears away from the baby's cheeks.

    Giving a sniffle, the baby latches on to Steve’s hand, then whines unhappily, hiccuping wetly.

    “I don’t know how to, you know,” Steve explains helplessly, making something that vaguely resembles a cradling, rocking motion with his free arm. The baby is less than impressed with that, though, and takes a noisy, stuttering breath. Steve’s eyes widen in alarm. “Oh, no. No, ssh, no. Here, c’mon, it’s all right.”

    Very gingerly, Steve slides one hand under the baby’s back, cups its neck with the other, and slowly lifts the squirmy bundle out of the crib, and against his chest. “There, ssh. That’s better, isn’t it?”

    In answer, the baby tucks its damp face into Steve’s neck, apparently content to stay where it is. Steve glances around the room, a little lost, but the baby just gurgles, and doesn’t start crying again, which he decides to count as a success.
