    Summary

    Being in an abusive relationship was a bit like needing glasses. He didn't realize it until the damage was done.

    Funny how people assume only men can be abusive.

    The one where Steve thinks Tony is amazing, and Tony thinks Steve is amazing, but Tony doesn't think Tony is amazing.

    Summary

    For someone he'd hero-worshipped for so long, Steve Rogers in the flesh is a pretty big disappointment. For one thing, he keeps looking at Tony as though he reminds him of someone else, and even if he never says anything, Tony's pretty sure it's his father. A lifetime of not measuring up to Howard's expectations is more than enough, thank you very much, and he's certainly not going to make an effort to live up to any of Steve's. Steve's pretty clearly failed to live up to his expectations, in any case, and that's not hypocritical at all.

    Summary

    Steve wakes up to the fact that no one ever compliments or even says thank you to Tony, and that he has fallen into the same trap of painting Tony with a specific paintbrush.

    This is how he showers a very confused Tony with praise to make up for it.

    Summary

    Tony is still a consultant, and between SI, the team and SHIELD he's overworked and exhausted. That's okay.

    He and Steve have been having sex for weeks but that's all it is, just sex, and Tony wants more but he'll never get it and that's okay. Really.

    What's not okay is the fact that Howard Stark has somehow appeared in the future and is the same as always.

    This is definitely going to fuck up his schedule.

    Summary

    Tony ravaged his repertoire for a witty comeback, but the two kisses had shut his brain down. So instead he whirled, pretended to organize his tools and threw his head back haughtily. “Seriously? Are you two five-year-olds or something?”

    “Says the man who is compared to a five-year-old on a weekly basis,” Bucky retorted.

    “That is because I am young and full of vitality, unlike you ninety-year olds.”

    Steve and Bucky chuckled.

    Bucky walked up behind Tony and gave him one last peck on the cheek. “Whenever you’re in the mood for a little spring-winter romance let us know. We’ll be happy to indulge.”

    Tony thought his brain had malfunctioned before, but that statement alone infected his brain like a deadly computer virus. So caught up in his disbelief and shock he missed Bucky and Steve’s departure. By the time he rebooted his brain, the two were gone and he was alone in the workshop.

    “FRIDAY, what just happened?”

    “I believe Sergeant Barnes, and by extension Captain Rogers, propositioned you, boss.”

    Summary

    Written for this prompt on the Avengers kinkmeme (and first posted there): "The Avengers are trapped somewhere. A forest, a cave, whatever. Tony, who is hurt, traumatized, his arc reactor running low, MacGyvers some awesome shit and saves the day. The Avengers can only watch in awe."

    The Avengers are stuck in a cave, and Tony, despite being essentially incapacitated by the loss of his suit, has a working plan to deal with this shit. So what if his team thinks he's only useful in the suit? And so what that they're not in life-threatening danger, the kind that Loki strews around himself like confetti? Tony is going to get them out of there by hook or by crook, because goddammit he hates caves, and no one else is coming up with a better plan. They're not in danger now, but time is running out. And if Tony has to damage himself to pull off his plan, well, them's the breaks.

    Incidentally, Steve doesn't like it when Tony's damaged.

    (Or: Stand back! Tony Stark's about to try science. Dangerous, self-sacrificing science.)

    Summary

    Tony Stark spent his childhood making weapons, filling the hole his father left in the world when he succumbed to alcohol, grief, and his own demons. At the age of fifteen, he ran away from home, and made it as far as MIT before all of his responsibilities caught up to him. Now seventeen, he just wants to finish his degree and escape from everything connected to the Stark name.

    Steve Rogers crashed into the icy North Atlantic in the 1940's, sacrificing himself to save the world. He never expected to wake up, and now that he has, he's not sure he's glad. The US Army has other plans for him, but for now, Steve is slowly learning to live life in the 21st century, and taking classes at Boston College. He's beginning to suspect that there is no escape.

    Boston College is on the T's Green Line. MIT is on the Red. The two lines meet at the Park Street Station, and so will Steve and Tony.

    Summary

    Tony and Steve are happy. Bucky’s return doesn’t change that. Or, at least, that’s how Tony sees it. His friends don’t seem convinced.

    Alternatively; five times people think Tony should be jealous plus the one time everyone realises why he isn’t.

    Summary

    Clint blinks at his phone in surprise. He has a text from… Bucky?

    Opening the phone, he realizes he has a selfie from Bucky.

    Why does he have a selfie from Bucky?

    Which isn’t to say it isn’t a very good selfie - it is. It’s a very, very good selfie. It’s all bedroom eyes and carefully mussed hair and bare skin and what appear to be expensive sheets, and that same look Bucky gives him when Clint slurps his coffee straight out of the pot like the uncivilized shithead that he is.

    The look has never been sexy before now.

    But softened by dim light and a lack of clothes and fucking bedsheets, well. It’s sexy now.

    Clint has no idea why it’s been sent to him but-

    Wait.

    Just above the selfie from Bucky is a selfie to Bucky. Of Clint. The same selfie he’d sent Natasha-

    Oh.

    The same selfie he hadn’t sent Natasha because he’s sent it to Bucky instead for some inexplicable reason.

    Summary

    Clint advertises himself as a ‘semi-acceptable to totally inappropriate boyfriend for all your family holiday, family dinner, corporate Christmas party, and other fake-dating needs’. It's surprisingly lucrative, especially around Thanksgiving and Christmas, and he is always very clear with his ‘dates’ exactly what he is and isn't willing to do, and anything physical beyond some hand-holding or maybe a light peck on the mouth is completely off the table.

    So when Natasha asks him for a favor - to help out one of her friends with his own special brand of help, Clint readily agrees.

    But James 'Bucky' Barnes is nothing like Clint's other clients.

    Summary

    He isn’t in the habit of picking up strays and he isn’t about to start now. He remembers enough of a life from many years ago to know that picking up trouble-prone blonds isn’t a habit he ought to be falling back into.

    Unfortunately, trouble finds him anyway.

    He’s cutting down the side-street that leads to the shop when he hears the sickening sound of fist-on-skin contact, and he rounds the corner to find tall-blond-and-trouble in a literal back-alley brawl with four guys nearly as big as he is. They’re wearing black and white-striped Adidas tracksuits, and Bucky hears at least one of them call the blond guy ‘bro’ in a thick Russian accent.

    Bucky’s not going to get involved.

    He’s not going to get involved, right up to the point that one of the tracksuit thugs pulls a gun out of the back of his pants and releases the safety, and Bucky realizes that he is going to get involved because he’s not going to let anybody get shot in broad daylight if he can help it.

    Fuck’s sake.

     

    OR - escaped, former assassin Bucky Barnes accidentally makes friends with a blond disaster. It goes about as well as expected.

    Summary

    Clint Barton may be a human train wreck, but when it comes to befriending ex-mind controlled assassins, he's pretty much the best there is. Unfortunately, he's not nearly as good at being kind to himself. Lucky for him, Bucky's got it covered.
