Tony Stark knew on an intellectual level he had no impulse control. He knew because almost everyone he’d ever met had told him so, Pepper, Rhodey, Steve oh god so much Steve, Happy, the 12 assistance before Pepper, Xavier and the waitress at John’s Pizzeria off 43rd ave. He’d heard it all before, But nothing compared to the moment he realized it for himself.
To be real he probably should have noticed in every moment leading up to the big one. He should have seen that swiping Thor’s stash of Asgardian mead with Darcy was a bad idea. He should have known better than to have a marathon of broiler makers with the mouthy intern using the ale instead of whiskey was a bad idea.
He probably should have known if he was swaying that they shouldn’t have gone out, but Darcy had said she hadn’t seen the city yet and Steve and Bucky kept teasing her about it.
Happy hadn’t even needed to hide his eye rolling because Tony was to focused on the crisp fall air on his flushed face. Darcy was beside him bubbling with laughter ignoring Happy’s cries that they should both sit down and get out of the sun roof. They headed to Times Square and bought an entire vender out of cheesy “I love New York” hoodies and in Tony’s case a hat to sort of disguise himself. They pulled on their hats and sweatshirts and Happy directed the rest to be sent to the tower. Tony slipped the bemused man a hundred and patted the man’s hand like a grandma before turning back to his sidekick.
“This is what all the superhero’s are wearing!” He proclaimed proudly gesturing to his heinous green ball cap with “Hulk Smash” stitched in purple on the front. He didn’t care at the time but the selfies of him and Darcy in Times Square were cringe worthy. They briefly dropped by John’s and said hello to Tony’s waitress. She shook her head and sent them on their way with glasses of water and sympathetic looks for Happy.
“Come on We’ve got a few more stops!” Tony gestured over his shoulder into the streets at the car. Apparently however Darcy’s eyes had not stopped at the car but landed on a street performer dressed as the Statue of Liberty.
“Oh can we please go see Her?” Her hand covered her heart and she gestured like a child to the woman with the other. Happy checked his watch and frowned.
“The fairy’s closed down this time of day.” He told Tony. Tony nodded in agreement. “We could go see Conney Island if you promise to sit completely in the car before we go home for the night.”
“Ohh Steve said it’s awesome!! We can go to the Lady tomorrow! I want to sing her the National Anthem and don’t know if I could get all the key changes right now” She giggled “We could take Steve and have the most patriotic photo shoot. Phil would love it!” and with that she held her arm out to Happy agreeably. And all that would have been fine if it hadn’t been for traffic.
Happy pulled up to the curb and Tony rolled down his window with a frown. The park was closed. Darcy hadn’t noticed yet as she was making quick work of Tony’s mini bar but she tended to be a weepy drunk the fall out was going to be Niagara worthy.
“Oh man, no Lady and no cyclone? Why’s time ruining my fun Tony?” Darcy’s lower lip quivered. Immediate action was required. Mayday!
“Hey, hey No! No tears, what’s the use in being obscenely rich if I can’t bribe someone with my money!” He gave an encouraging grin. Happy’s heavy sigh was not lost on him. “I’ll go ask if we can ride the cyclone and maybe win us a bear okay no tears” He quickly backed out of the car leaving Happy to handle the teary eyed twenty something.
The door shut and it sounded sharper to Tony somehow as he walked toward the gate. A memory that was faded and liquored up played at the edges of his mind, huge blue eyes watering slightly in a perfect pout. His own voice murky in time “Hey what’s the use in being obscenely rich if I can’t…” and then it was gone. He frowned and waved over the gate man.
A few charming smiles and a probably too fat check later and he turned to tell Darcy the good news. She was resting her chin on the window smiling lazily at him. She wiggled her fingers and Tony grinned back before a similar smile brushed his mind again. He shook his head to clear away some of the haze. It’d been almost two hours he wasn’t as drunk as before but there was still a layer of fuzz on his mind.
“Race ya!” She grinned and bounded off toward the ride. Tony gave a bark of laughter and let the memories rest before jogging slowly after her. They tossed ratty baseballs and weighted milk bottles before the attendant an exhausted looking man in his late thirties gave them a wane smile and asked which prize they wanted. Darcy got the Bucky Bear. Tony shorted and got the Captain America one just for laughs. They took a shaky selfie with the attendee before thanking him and heading toward their goal.
“We should snap them with the bears and hashtag it wish you were hear but you’re not because you’re lame and had meeting and responsibilities” Darcy placed her Bucky in her lap and was readying her phone before Tony agreed.
“We also, you know, didn’t invite them” He pointed out. She made a dismissive sound and tucked her head close to his giving her phone a goofy face. Tony hid most of his face behind Bear Steve and widened his eyes comically. The younger brunette seemed satisfied and put away her phone allowing the impatient teen running the cyclone to push the lap bar down over her Tony Bear Bucky and Steve.
The ride began a slow spin and before it had even reached half way Tony regretted buying this time. The teenager seemed irked he had to stay for Tony and what the kid probably figured was a one nighter and so the ride was hurtling toward a break neck pace only irritating Tony’s stomach further. Darcy however threw her hands up Bucky Bear’s paw firmly gripped in one and whooped. Tony swung between needing to vomit all over the place and watching the manic yet somehow beautiful looks on Darcy’s face. She brought her bear back down and buried her nose in it’s fur. The ride began to slow and she opened her eyes unfocused and bloodshot. Windswept and Content.
It ended up being Darcy and not Tony who shot off the attraction to the nearest garbage can to Ralph. Tony followed close behind and pulled her hair back into his fist and out of the danger zone. He leaned heavily on the can and grimaced at the sounds.
When she at last paused in her litany of puke she turned her head to look up at him simultaneously green and mischievous.
“Don’t tell the boys” She asked. Tony’s heart stopped as he looked at her. He nodded once unable to find words. Satisfied with this she fell face first into him. Mostly into his armpit but she smiled against him. Tony let got of her hair and gently held her to him stroking her dark locks and thinking unburdened by alcohol of a busty blond who’d rocked his world with a practically identical grin. Darcy’s breath flowed steadily on his neck as she repositioned herself in his arms.
“Thanks for holding my hair.” She murmured. Tony hummed in response.
As much as Tony was wildly incapable of controlling himself he was incredibly careful with secrets. They could hurt, he knew from his experiences with Stane. His almost ending the thing with Pepper. Infuriating his teammates and elected officials. So he was in something of a quandary.
As soon as they’d returned to the tower Tony had deposited a snoozing Darcy in her bed with Bucky bear on one side of her and Steve on the other. He of course took a picture of her drooling into Bucky’s fur and then hesitated. It was too similar to ignore. If he didn’t do this he’d spend the rest of his life wondering until he got answers. So he plucked a hair off her pillow and turned tail and run back to his lab.
Jarvis had had to repeat his name four times when he finally knew. Tony tried to put the memories together more solidly but he only recalled the blond laughing and waving much like Darcy did. He remembered holding her hair back while she emptied her stomach off the balcony of the Palms, She had turned to him with an almost identical grin and snatched his heart out of his chest. Tony closed his eyes and felt the brush of skin on skin hot greedy kisses and waking up the next morning alone. He’d figured she’d been embarrassed or maybe had someone waiting at home. He’d been disappointed but she’d made her choice so he’d let her walk.
“Oh Kate” He looked forlornly as the Vegas police report of her car accident and her daughter no one had come to claim. “Katie” He groaned as he realized he could have saved the little girl a world of grief that followed. Foster home after Foster home until she aged out.
Well now he knew. but what do do. Who to tell? Pepper? Eventually. Rhody was always a good option but Tony’s thumb hovered over calling him for a solid minute before deciding someone else. Eventually he’d dialed before his decision had been fully processed.
“How did you get this number? I know I didn’t give it to you” was the first thing the voice said and Tony felt a calm fill him. A good choice.
“I’m in a quandary. It needs handling it’s that what you do Agent?” He stalled. The other end of the line was silent. “I may have discovered I’m a father” There was an even heavier pause.
“and I’m the first person you wanted to tell? I don’t think Pepper” He began.
“No It’s not Pep. I’ve been a father for a while apparently.” Tony cut across. “Like 23 years”
“Yea 100 percent. Do I tell her? What if she doesn’t want me? She’s been alone for a long time now she doesn’t need me.” Tony felt a panic rise in his chest. Oh God, she’d never forgive him.
“You need to take a deep breath.” Tony inhaled threw his nostrils. “If she doesn’t know she deserves to at least know. just be honest with her Tony. Honesty will get your farther than you think”
Tony gave a noncommittal grunt and rested his head on hands.
“For what its worth Tony, You’ll be a great father” Tony’s breath caught.
“Enough with the feelings Agent Agent Thanks for picking up.”
“I’m contractually obligated” He deadpanned. Tony laughed and killed the call.
Tony was going to handle this well. Maybe take her to lunch and talk it out like adults. He was excited and nervous and had yet to sleep. He was currently fixing coffee from the enormous demonic espresso machine he’d had fitted in the common room when he invited everyone to live with them when people began filling in for breakfast.
Steve and Bucky both coming in from their morning run and apparently showers. They nodded curiously at the billionaire before pulling down pots and pans. Bruce wondered in next and gave him a scathing look for his ball cap which he had neglected to take off. That explained the looks Tony placed it carefully on the counter.
“So what did we learn?” Jane’s voice carried into the room ahead of her and the others looked up. Darcy entered holding her stomach and shuffling pitifully. Jane followed looking much less hungover.
“Don’t drink with Tony.” Darcy grunted and began to pour her own cup of coffee. Tony didn’t speak, not trusting himself to yet. His eyes watched hungrily as she stirred her drink for signs of what he knew. Her unbrushed wild brunette hair, the shape of her eyes, the hangover slouch yea he could see it. Then Katie’s beautiful blue eyes and pouty mouth, her heart snatching laugh. It seemed so obvious
“What?” Darcy glowered at him. Oh yea he had that grumpy face sometimes.
“Darcy threw up on the cyclone!” He blurted. Her eyes widened.
“TONY!” She shrieked.
“And she’s my daughter!” His shouting matched hers in pitch but was far more excited. Darcy’s eyes widened if possible further and then narrowed looking at him critically.
The supers were paused mid bite. Jane gaped and Bruce eyed the pair wearily.
“Okay I can see that” She finally said with a shrug. Tony barked a laugh not exactly how he’d pictured her taking the news. Then again he hadn’t thought he’d shout it at her over breakfast in the common room either.
Such was life when you had no impulse control. But looking at the beautiful girl across from him he thought he rather liked this life.
A/N: I saw this on @bucky-plums-barnes‘ Fluffy Friday thing and I thought why not (even though my shitty writing) so I hope you enjoy it. it’s a a little short but.. oops.
You hate getting hit by a stupid alien while kicking their asses to the space again and that’s what happened.
You were defending, trying to save your ass from getting kicked by a stupid alien but they were a lot of them coming at you.
You try to breath normally but the pain you have on your right side and your head, didn’t allow you to do it. There was no bleeding on sight, at least, thank God, but hell of a pain. You hissed at the pain and closed your eyes.
“Shit!” You heard someone cursing loudly. Then there was hands on your face. “Y/N?? Jesus Christ, Y/N!?” You slowly opened your eyes to see a very concerned Bucky above you.
“I’m fine,” you said, putting your hand onto his. “It’s just aching, no blood, I promise.” Bucky shake his head, making his hair swing to the sides.
“You scared me.” He looked at you intensively and helped you get up. You groaned with pain once you were on your feet again and hold on very tight to Bucky. “Come on,” he said and pulled you forward lightly. You furrowed your brows together and looked at him confused.
“What? Where are we going?”
“To th ER. You hurt and need some medical care.” You huffed and tried to wiggle your way out off his arms but he was holding you tight. You groaned again and let Bucky drag you.
And now, you are in ER, laying on a wheeler bed and watching the serum dripping 10 times in a minute. The doctor gave you a shit ton of painkillers to ease the pain on your right side and head. And thanks to the painkillers, you start feeling loopy and loose.
“Are you feeling better?” Bucky asked. He was still waiting for you. He had pulled a chair next to your bed and waiting for your serum to end. You laughed quietly at his words.
“I’m flying,” you said and laughed again. Bucky smiled. But he was still concerned and wanted to be sure that you don’t have any concussion. He held you hand to take your attention to him and squeezed it gently.
“Okay, then, do you know who I am?” He asked again. You giggle a bit before answering.
“Yeah, you are you.”
“And what is my name?” His question made you think about his name. You furrowed your brows while you were thinking.
“Uhm… Bun-bunny…” You stopped. “Bucky!” You said this time. “You are Bucky. Bucky Bear. My Bear, my Bucky. Your name is My Bucky.” You said and beamed. A big smile was radiating its way to Bucky and making him giggle at your actions.
“Oh, doll,” he said, still giggling quietly. You continue to smile at him.
You sighed. “I love you,” you confessed. Bucky stood there shocked and thrilled and watched you closing your eyes slowly, drifting to the sleep. He sighed. He took your hand in his both and placed a kiss into your wrists.
“Thank you,” he said very quietly. Still in a shock that somebody can love him, even though the things he had done in his past. He smiled. “I love you, too.”
He made you smile in your sleep with his confession.

I rode up to my backyard and just dumped my bike on the ground before storming in the backdoor of my house. I saw my dad, Uncle Chris, Uncle Anthony, and Aunt Scarlett all sitting in the kitchen.
“It’s official! I quit! I’m quitting the Dance team!” I proclaimed as I handed my dad Sebastian Stan, yep that’s right I am the 14 year old daughter of the Winter Soldier himself, Sebastian Stan.
“(N/n) you can’t quit, I just spent 25 dollars buying you this Dance Varsity jacket” he said as he pinched the collar of my dance jacket.
“And there’s no way I’m going to the Varsity sleepover this Saturday!” I then ran up the stairs leading up to my room.
“What was that about?” asked Anthony Mackie.
“I know what,” Sebastian stated solemnly. He then walked towards the kitchen table and sat down on one of the chairs and he said to his Marvel friends, “those sleepovers are for Mothers and Daughters”.
“Ohh man poor (n/n)” said Chris Evans.
“It’s gotta be devastating for her” said Anthony
.“At times like this, especially now I wish (y/n) had a mother” said Sebastian.
