Fic: The Jar

The Avengers are ridiculously competitive people, and what starts out as a silly late-night team discussion quickly becomes a contest: their names. Not the code names – the nicknames. Who can go the longest without using them? They pledge to spend a week not nicknaming each other, and they’ll pay up every time they mess up. This hits Tony the hardest, and not just financially. Tony’s got a lot of nicknames for everyone, but most of all for Steve – and when Tony can’t use the names he’s already got, the names he uses reveal feelings he had no idea he had.

I think I’ve been promising this story since approximately October and have only now finished it. I originally came up with it as a prompt for the Cap-IM Exchange and then decided I absolutely needed to write it myself. So, uh, you could have gotten it sooner if I’d let someone else have it. This is a Cap-IM Bingo fill, for the square “kitchen fun.” And it is happy fluffy MA:A fluff where nothing bad happens.

Thanks to @einheriar and @loving-that-officey-feel for their help, and special thanks to @sakuratsukikage, because when I said I was writing a story about Tony’s romantic pet names for Steve and asked for help coming up with them, I got a list of FIFTY-THREE NAMES. It was pretty amazing. They’re not all in this story, alas. But a whole lot of them are.

9727) I'm 16 and I have gynecomastia (meaning I have boobs as a guy.)

They definitely stand out and I get teased a lot, but I really love it deep down. My parents keep suggesting I get surgery, and I keep having to tell them that I don’t mind having boobs in a way that doesn’t suggest I actually like it, because I’m not ready to come out as trans yet. They seem confused as to why any guy would enjoy having boobs, esp since I get made fun of a lot, and I don’t know what to tell them anymore.
