I couldn’t get rid of this silly AU idea for awhile, so I decided to just give up and draw it. It was supposed to be just one spideypool drawing but here we are. Inspired by Avengers Academy and idk.. Step-Up movies..?
So in this AU Tony is a son of a Stark Fine Arts Academy director. Natasha, Bucky and Peter are second-year students there and also they are the best classic dancers in the academy (of course). Then the academy decided to add street dance classes to get their students to participate in more different contests and just be cooler. And so Steve, Wade and Sam are one of the new people who transfered to the academy for these new classes.
let’s be real here, there’s no way that Tony would be Peter’s Superhero Dad ™. I love the guy, I do, but he’s shit with kids. The only reason he was halfway okay with Harley in IM3 was because that kid had daddy issues too so they bonded.
But Steve and Bucky? Dad material, lemme tell you. Bucky has been taking care of Steve’s sickly punk ass since 1940 so the first thing he does out of cryo (after having a good cry, eating some plums, and cathartic sex, of course) is demand that they go to Queens to “check in on that spider kid” and the whole way there he’s ranting about how irresponsible it is and how the kid is going to get himself killed and “don’t you laugh Steve, you are the worst kind of influence. Jesus H Christ it’s like history repeating itself.”
Bucky makes it his mission to keep Peter safe (even though he hates Queens with a passion, he’ll make an exception to keep the scrawny superhero breathing) and Steve’s more like a big brother than a bodyguard. He doesn’t push, just gives Peter his number in case he needs to talk. “I lost my parents young too,” he explains, “and before the serum, I looked like you, only thirty pounds thinner and four inches shorter. I know what it’s like to be the little guy.”
And then of course quietly making things easier for Aunt May because how hard must it be to try and raise your sister’s kid, being that young and single? It’s nothing showy, but if they can buy her groceries or tidy up the house every once in a while, they think its worth it
