this is the anon who left the long headcanon, i'm so glad you enjoyed!! ^^ pls don't feel bad about expanding upon it (esp since your addition made me scream internally with delight imagining the desperate hugs that followed, and like, James probably bridal-carried the intact suit back to their transport while Nat helped Tony limp along behind right??) it's free to a good home b/c i'm never going to have time to write it, so as far as i'm concerned anyone can do what they like with it! <333
[Refers to this WIW headcanon]
It is you, my brilliant friend!!! *tackles you in a hug* I’m happy you liked my addition! And of course this is how it goes!!! James will probably pout over having to carry the armour, no matter how impressive, but Nat will play the I’m-only-human-woe-is-me card, he’s got no choice. Not that the Winter Soldier does such a mundane thing like pouting of course.
Transport will be tricky too, I suspect, what with both of them wanting Tony as close as possible. Especially if they have to fly. But none of that compares to the nightmare the unlucky medical team that wasn’t fast enough to hide experience when they try to give Tony the medical attention he desperately needs while two very menacing, only half-redeemed and currently very trigger-happy assassins snarl and glare at them. Nat might or might not take a hostage.
Tony finds it hilarious. Then again, he’s on the good drugs by that point.
ALSO DID YOU HEAR THAT EVERYBODY??? Anon gave permission to write this story! *heart eyes emoij that I currently don’t have* If anyone takes it up, please, please, I’m begging you, tag me!
I may try my hand at this beautiful plot myself too but I have so many projects right now I don’t want to promise anything.
