Bones AU though
Special Agent Steve Rogers being forced to partner up with genius (and the leading expert in the world in Forensic Anthropology, thank you very much) Tony Stark, for Tony’s extended support in his murder investigations.
Media darling and author, Tony Stark dedicating his books to “my rudder, Special Agent Steve Rogers for I wouldn’t be half as good at anything as I’m when I’m doing it next to you…….except Forensic Anthropology, of course. I’m still the best in that.”
Late nights spent pouring over cases, and trusting each other, going on “Not-Dates” to the local diner, finding loopholes in Fury’s edicts, going undercover and getting buried alive (and rescued).
Their partnership surviving broken homes and tragic backstories, the irritating psychologist who seemed to have imprinted on them, serial killers, cannibals and false murder charges.
Just……unlimited trust and friendship with an under layer of UST and deep, abiding love.
Countless, “Hey! you cannot talk to him like that.” and “Steve Rogers is the best man I know, so I would watch myself before I say another negative word about him in front of me, if I were you…..of course this is assuming you have the minimum intelligence required to make that decision” and “I’m not as unfeeling as people think I am, Steve”/“ What you are is Iceland. Cool to the touch but underneath all volcano!“
Help, I’m crying.
