Steve/Tony Fic Recs: Pining Steve

This is for the anon who wanted pining Steve, thank you for the ask, I LOVE  pining Steve <3 Some of this crosses over into mutual pining, but I’ve tried to focus on Steve - mutual pining will be another list :)

Steve Rogers Is A Slut For Art (And Tony Stark) by itsallAvengers (@itsallavengers​): So what, Steve wants to draw Stark. He gets that all the time. And usually, once he’s completed his sketch, he moves on. But for some reason, he just can’t seem to get Stark right. And everyone knows Steve is a perfectionist- he won’t sit still until he can draw that man’s face with his eyes closed. And in order to do that, he’s gotta go see him again, right? Except it kind of escalates from there.

Harlem Shake (I Won’t Dance, Don’t Ask Me) by theladyingrey42: It’s only by chance that Steve happens to head down to Tony’s workshop on the day they’re filming the video.

That Damn Tank Top by inukagome15 (@inukagome15​): He’d never seen Tony like this – so stripped down of his usual armors and completely in his element. Or, Steve sees Tony in his tank top when he’s in his workshop and likes it. A lot.

all i ever want to be is somebody to you by theappleppielifestyle (@theappleppielifestyle​): It’s not like Steve went out of his way to be stupidly, pathetically, embarrassingly in love with Tony.It just- it turned out impossible to not be, after a while.

a superhero and an idiot walk into a bar by eleadore: It’s not that he and Tony don’t get along. It’s more that Tony got so drunk on New Year’s Eve that he kissed Steve full on the mouth in front of everyone and called him Shirley and then laughed until he passed out.

Falling Into You by sabrecmc (@sabrecmc​): Tony and Steve end up as fuck buddies after the events of The Winter Soldier until Steve calls it off.

Steve’s life becomes complicated when the Avengers encounter a mysterious supervillain crimewave, Helmut Zemo wants to legislate the Avengers out of existence, and his relationship with Sharon begins to fall apart. Then, after the death of a close friend, Steve begins to question if he is truly happy. 

And, worse, why can’t he get Tony off his mind?

Ain’t No Drinking Man by archwrites (Arch): Steve’s skinny and asthmatic again, thanks to AIM. On the plus side, he can get drunk for the first time in seventy years. On the minus side, he kissed Tony, and now he’s skinny, asthmatic, and pining for his best friend. The first two conditions may be curable. The third is giving him some trouble.

By Its Cover by EClairedeLoon: The men and women Tony dated were young and beautiful and grew up in this modern world. Steve was still just that skinny kid from Brooklyn that didn’t get asked to the Sadie Hawkins dance and never had hopes of going steady.

Something Red, White and Blue by Traincat (@traincat​): Steve Rogers is always the groomsman and never the groom. Tony Stark hates feelings and ancient alien prophecies. Or, five weddings Captain America attended, and one he crashed. Not necessarily in that order.

Love among the Hydrothermal Vents by DevilDoll: In which Namor has a thing for Steve, an octopus has a thing for Tony, and Steve and Tony eventually have a thing for each other.

I don’t want you (to smile to anybody) by Mizzy (@mizzy2k​): Tony Stark doesn’t do commitment. So Steve finds it weird – but not impossible – to deal with Tony suddenly bringing home dates that look like him.Until one of Tony’s one-night-stands, who could be a double for Steve, turns out to be not quite as disposable as the rest of Tony’s conquests – and Steve’s repressed crush on Tony starts to become problematic…

the entire and perpetual sea by jelliebean: Steve was surprised by how domestic his day had been. How sweet Tony was to him. It was as if he’d been dropped in the middle of a relationship that had been going for years, and it felt. Well, it felt like home. The casual way Tony would bump into him and smile. The way it felt natural to pull him into a hug, kiss his hair.

Steve is granted a day to express his love. But all days end.

A Minor Incident by missbecky (@missbeckywrites​): Steve drags Tony along with him when he makes an impulsive decision to chase after Hydra. Things go downhill from there, and Steve discovers a new mission for himself. (series)

Expecting to never see him again, Steve joins the Army, buffs up, and heads off to college to finish his education. Unfortunately, things get turned around when Steve finds himself a part of Tony’s group after their friends start hooking up. Even more unfortunate is that Tony seems to have no memory of their night together. And all this before they become fuck buddies. Steve’s life is really a mess.

Issues by so_shhy: In which Steve has a crippling crush on Tony Stark, Tony is oblivious and obnoxious, and Bucky expresses his disapproval via passive-aggressive comics.

Steve Rogers’ Life Is Not A Romance Movie (He Wouldn’t Get The References, Anyway) by someonelsesheart: Steve hasn’t always had this ridiculous crush on Tony Stark. (Or, the one where Steve is his polite old self and doesn’t really hate Tony Stark (unfortunately), Tony is a child prodigy and apparently a cab driver now, too, and high school is still high school, even when you are the son of a billionaire.)

Run by itsallAvengers (@itsallavengers​): Steve took a long breath, shutting his eyes and putting two fingers up the bridge of his nose.

“So you’re telling me… you decided it would be a good idea… to start a fight when you were outnumbered… twenty to one?” he asked shortly. Tony grinned then, and nodded his head.

Looking for Heaven by foxxcub: When young Lord Anthony Stark learns Steven Rogers has enlisted in the army, he thinks he’s seen the last of his tiny, headstrong, haughty stable boy. But four years later, Lord Stark gets an unexpected visit from Steve, whose mother has fallen gravely ill and into financial ruin. Even more unexpected, Steve agrees to a shocking proposal: they will marry, giving Steve the necessary funds to save his mother, and Tony the much-needed reprieve from harassing would-be suitors. It is a business arrangement, nothing more. But as time goes on and circumstances arise, Tony begins to learn that keeping his heart away from his husband is easier said than done.

The Captain and the Prince by Penumbren: Steve has had a crush on Tony for years. Captain Rogers heads up the castle guard when Prince Anthony returns from his studies abroad. What’s a poor captain of the guard to do when his past crashes into his present?

616 + Other Universes 

I Get By (With a Little Help from My Friends) by captainshellhead, vibraniumstark (@captainshellhead​): Steve has a crush on Tony, and he’s not entirely sure what to do about it. The team helps, because they’ve had enough.

Cutting In by captainshellhead, vibraniumstark (@captainshellhead​): Steve is nervously making his way through the gala’s stock of Champagne. Tony is none the wiser.

An Ideal Perspective by magicasen (@einheriar​): Steve gets back into professional art under a new pseudonym. Guess who his biggest fan is.

You and Me and Him by navaan (@naavan​): If you live in the same house, it’s really hard to keep your secrets. Especially if you are good friends. He doesn’t mean to watch as closely as he does, but it’s obvious to Steve that Tony and Iron Man are in a relationship. Right?

Your Hand in Mine by navaan (@naavan​): Steve tries to find his place in this world. But it’s hard if you’re in love with someone who you don’t really know outside of their secret identity.

Requited by pensversusswords (@pensversusswords​): Sometimes, Steve Rogers just can’t keep a secret–even when it’s his own.

Logical Fallacies by laireshi (@laireshi​): “I thought you were dating Clint,” Steve said, and Tony dropped the screwdriver.

In Every Way That Matters by Sineala (@sineala​): There are bright things about the future, and Steve’s friendship with Iron Man is one of the brightest. So what if he doesn’t know who the man under the mask is? That’s not going to stop Steve from wanting his friendship, or even from wanting something more.

Get Some Now by Sineala (@sineala​): Avengers Mansion has a mysterious feline infestation. Meanwhile, Steve just can’t figure out how to ask Tony out on a date. And the thirteen teleporting cats sure aren’t helping matters any.

Plus One by Sineala (@sineala​): Tony wants Steve to accompany him to a gala. They’re not together. Tony doesn’t seem to think this is a problem, but he doesn’t know about Steve’s feelings for him. And Steve’s certainly not going to tell him.

The Nucleus Burning Inside of the Cell by Sineala (@sineala​): Steve’s had a hopeless crush on Natasha Stark for years, but the rumors in the headlines about their passionate romance are just that: rumors. He knows he’d never really have a chance with her. But when the rumors become harder to ignore, the only way out is to give in, and Steve and Natasha must pretend to be in a relationship. The press is happy, their teammates are thrilled for them… and it’s going to kill Steve.

Bold by @snoozingcat​: No one could ever say Tasha Stark wasn’t bold. In dress, in philosophy, in person. She was colorful, and bold, and bright, and asking her to dance was impossible.

Take My Breath Away  by pensversusswords (@pensversusswords​): In which Steve Rogers has been in love with Natasha Stark for years, and managed to keep it a secret for almost just as long. Almost.

Say It (Movietone News remix) by a_sparrows_fall (@asparrowsfall​): Steve and the other Invaders are stationed at headquarters just outside of London, where they run into Tony Stark—the Tony Stark of Marvels magazine. Steve struggles to express how he feels.

Bright Eyes by copperbadge (@copperbadge​): Steve might have a fixation on Tony’s minor mutation.

Jan Van Crime! by MemoryDragon (@memorydragon​): Jan is upset about the new Ant-Man movie that she doesn’t feature in, and she plans to become a Super Villainess to make herself more relevant. It also means making a new outfit, which she is super excited for. Carol and Tony want to help cheer her up, while T'Challa agrees that diversity in movies and merchandise is a worthy cause.

Steve would be all on board as well, but turning to super-villainy is not the answer. Neither is Tony being Jan’s love interest. Definitely not Tony being Jan’s love interest. Both are valid points of concern.

The More Things Change by cookinguptales: Steve’s not entirely sure how seduction works nowadays, but he’s learned from the best.

Heart Burn by nightwalker (@onemuseleft​): There was a dragon and now Tony’s mostly naked and it’s all Reed Richards’ fault.

The Jar by Sineala (@sineala​): 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.

All the times Steve nearly kissed Tony by cptxrogers (@cptxrogers​): Steve has got used to pining after Tony. Tony is just so soft and warm and lovely, and Steve can’t help wondering what it might be like to kiss him. But that’s not going to happen. Because it’s not like Tony would want to kiss Steve… right?

Mission: Improbable by cptxrogers (@cptxrogers​): Tony is called on to investigate strange events which have been occurring in the upper echelons of society recently. There’s just one small issue - he needs Steve to pose as his date for the evening.

I'm still the captain

(A/N): bearded Steve has got me fucked up

Request: Can I request a story please where Steve is sick of being Cap and doesn’t want to come back to the Avengers until he comes to the base to talk to Tony and he sees the reader who is a new recruit. The reader is training with a total asshole at that point who just keeps shooting something (idk fire or stuff) at her and she starts arguing with him, walks out and runs into Steve? And Steve falls in love and joins again? (Steve please with beard and maybe a dog or something) You’re so awesome!

   "You sure you don’t wanna come back?“ Tony asks as he walks beside Steve and his rather large golden retriever named Buddy of all things. 

    "I’m tired of being cap,” Steve sighs as he looks at the floor, at the floor he once used to walk on daily. “I’ve been doing it for years and I guess I’ve just lost-" 

   "Lost faith in captain america?” Tony supplies the rest of his sentence. Steve nods, sighing again. 

   "Captain stood for justice, peace, freedom, I don’t know what he is now but it’s not that,“ 

   "You piece of shit!” A sudden voice cuts Steve’s conversation short. buddy’s ears perk up and he whines at the sound, his head already pointing to the direction of the training rooms.

    “New recruits,” Tony supplies with a smirk. “It hasn’t been going to well," 

   "Yeah,” Steve edges forward, taking a few steps towards the training rooms. “I can tell,”

    “I’m done trying to train you! Reschedule with Tony or Nat or someone else you little asshat-” The voice cuts shorts when whoever it belonged to ran straight into Steve’s chest, grumbling and trying to push away. “Watch where you’re going-” The person looks up, face immediately going slack as they look up at Steve. “Oh my god, you’re- you’re Steve Rogers,” Steve chuckles lightly, nodding his head as he stuffs his hands in his pockets.

    “Indeed I am," 

   "I’m so sorry for running into you, I didn’t mean to-" 

   "Mr. Stark, I suggest you hire someone new because (Y/N) does a fucking terrible job,” A young trainee, only around the age of 19, comes walking out of the training rooms, looking rather rude and arrogant. (Y/N)- Steve assumed- gritted their teeth in restraint as they rolled their eyes, turning on the spot to face Tony. 

   "Tony, this little asswipe wouldn’t listen to me, he kept using those stupid fucking powers and-“ 

   "hey, hey, hey, both of you need to calm down, okay?” Tony looked between the two with a rather serious gaze. “Jason, Go hit the showers, (Y/N) go eat a carrot or some shit, I don’t care,”

    “But Mr. Stark-”

    “Now you two.” Tony rubs at his temples as the two walk away, glaring at each other darkly as they do. “I swear those two are going to be the death of me,”

    “When did you hire (Y/N)?" 

   "A week after you left,”

    “What do they specialize in?" 

   "A little bit of everything truthfully, they have quite the impressive resume,”

   "Hmm, any previous employers?“ 

   "They were an assassin for hire, they were their own employer,”

   "So, what’s their story? Villain suddenly becomes a hero? They accidentally lost a loved one in their line of work?“ 

  "They gave up the whole assassin thing after one customer wanted (Y/N) to take out a family, a pregnant woman, her husband, and their two other children," 

   "So, they have morals at least ," 

  "They do,” Tony smiles, clapping Steve on the shoulder. “You’d love them if you got to know them a bit, gives you the perfect reason to rejoin the team-" 

  "Steve’s rejoining the team?” Natasha smirks as she suddenly walks up to the two men. “Nice beard Steve, makes you look all rugged and stuff," 

    "He does live on a farm now Nat, he has to look rugged,” Nat hums as she nods, her eyes flitting from Steve’s bear down towards his feet where Buddy sat patiently, tail swishing from side to side gently.

    “And who’s this cutie?” Nat asks as she crouches down, scratching Buddy’s ears affectionately.

    “This is buddy, I found him snooping around my yard one day and I decodes to take him in," 

   "Well sounds like Captain America has been having fun up on his ranch,"  

   "Yeah,” Steve nods, smiling gently as he does.  "I have…I miss the compound though,“ 

   "Ah, did I just hear Captain America say he misses the compound,” Tony smiles excitedly, unable to hide just how elated he was.

   "I’m not saying I’ll come back, I’m just saying I’ll think about it,“ 

   "He’ll think about it!” Tony cried as he hugged Steve tightly. “He said he’ll think about it!”  

  “Remember how you said you’d think about it?” (Y/N) chuckles around a mouthful of ice cream, the chocolatey substance dribbling down their chin. “And cut to a year later you’re the team leader once again," 

   "Oh hush,” Steve muttered as he poked (Y/N) with his foot, too tired to even lift his arms. He’d been training all day with (Y/N) and needless to say they had kicked his ass, they were fucking amazing at fighting and Tony wasn’t exaggerating when he said (Y/N)’s resume was quite extensive. 

   "Tell me again why you came back,“ 

   ”(Y/N), I’ve told you a million times before-“ 

   "I know, but I love hearing why,” Steve sighs as he cracks an eye open to look at (Y/N) who was trying to look cute and innocent as they pulled the chocolate coated spoon out of their mouth.

    “I came back because I had a crush on you, I wanted to see you more," 

   "Yeah?” (Y/N) smirks as they recline onto Steve’s chest, his arms already coming up to wrap around their form. 

   "Yep…and because of that decision I found the love of my life-“ 

   "Oh, you’re such a sap,” Steve smiled as he pressed a kiss to (Y/N)’s temple, letting his lips linger there for a moment before pulling back.

   "You know you wanted to hear it, don’t even deny it,“ (Y/N) hums as they nuzzle into Steve’s neck, sighing softly once they found they were perfectly comfortable.

   "I suppose you’re right…” The two fell silent for awhile after that, just laying together, holding each other, listening to the other’s breathing, their heartbeat, the way (Y/N)’s breaths became shallow whenever Steve gently kissed them, or the way Steve would nearly purr when (Y/N) raked their hands through his hair. The moment was peaceful, reflective, absolutely wonderful, that was until there was a loud bark and suddenly there was a large, rain soaked dog standing on both of their bodies. 

   "Buddy!“ Steve chastised, trying to push to large dog away from himself and (Y/N). "Personal space big guy,” But Buddy didn’t listen, instead he merely plopped down on their legs, head resting on Steve’s chest. (Y/N) chuckled as they reached down to pet Buddy, a light smile to their lips as they did.

    “He just wanted to cuddle too,” Steve groans and shakes his head as he lays back down, arms rewrapping around (Y/N). 

   "He’s fucking soaked (Y/N), your legs are going to be freezing when he gets off and then you’re gonna do that evil thing where you wrap your legs around me and try to freeze me to death,“

   "Hmm, damn right I am,”

   "I didn’t become team captain to have fucking freezing legs,“ 

Secretly Dating (Jeff Atkins)

Title: Secretly Dating

Pairing: Jeff Atkins x Reader

Request: Yes. Hope you like it.

Word Count: 1013 words

Reader Gender: Female

Summary: Y/n is dating Jeff, but no one knows. Not even her brother Clay, or her best friend Tony. What is going to happen? Will they ever find out?

Author’s Note: Thank you for all the love you give me. CONTINUE REQUESTING. Request more Alex please. Love you

“I don’t think Clay gets mad. He’s my friend.” Jeff said kissing all over your neck.

“Yes, and he’s my brother. My twin brother. I never hide him anything and he’ll be mad at me because I lied.” I told him a little angry and pulled him away.

“Hey it’s okay. I just want to you to be fine.” He smiled but I looked at the window.

“It’s getting late. We should go home before my mom starts freaking out.”

He started driving and I turned the radio on. I couldn’t pay attention to anything on the radio, I just wanted to hear noise instead this uncomfortable silence between us. We went to some dates secretly and now he tried to get serious with me. He was friends with Clay which was great but Jeff couldn’t understand how suddenly I drift away from Clay. He stopped talking to me like my brother, now we barely see each other.

“Can I see you tomorrow after practice?” Jeff asked taking my attention to his words again.

“I’ll see Tony at Monet’s. I’m sorry.” I leaned in near his face and I kissed him slowly. Then I opened the car’s door and got out.

“I love you. Don’t forget it.” He shouted and I smiled.

I got in the house and found everyone having dinner. I left my backpack on the entrance and joined them.

“How was the project with Sheri?” Mom asked.

“She brought you? She’s a nice girl.” Dad agreed. “She’s your friend right, Clay?”

“Umm, yes. But she didn’t say anything about you Y/n.” Clay take a bite of his meet and then looked at me.

“It was a project that came on my last class. That’s why she didn’t tell you. But it was good.” I told him and continue to look at my food.

Then I ate my food and they continued talking about their plans for tomorrow. I had to talk with Tony and I had to tell Clay the truth. By now, probably Tony already heard rumors around after Courtney saw me sneaking with Jeff out of the library. Maybe Clay already knew it. Guilt was eating me, I need to tell the truth.

“Can I get to my room? I’m exhausted.” Mom held my hand a second and then she nodded. “Thanks”

I got in my room trying to find a way to tell Clay and Tony about it.

Tony saw me and followed me until my locker where I hugged him.

“Hey, where were you last night?” He expressed a little concerned.

“I had to do some homework with Sheri. But we're​ going later to Monet’s, right?” I asked changing the subject. He nodded.

“Of course. I have to go with Clay. See you later.” He said and he left me there. Then Sheri came to me.

“Gosh. Tell me everything.” She asked and then we walked together to class.

“Nothing happened. Jeff had to study and I helped him. That’s all. Also thanks for agreeing to be my cover-up. You helped a lot.”

“Of course, but tell later everything about Atkins, okay?” She asked and then she went to sit next to some of her friends.

By the second hour, I had forgotten my book and the teacher didn’t allow me get in class. So I went to the gym where I found Bryce talking with Justin.

“Y/n, what are you doing here?” Justin asked and they got closer to me.

“The teacher said I needed to bring my book to be in his class. That’s why I just went to walk around.” I explained and they smiled.

“You can borrow my book for the next hour. You have two today right?” Justin said and he gave me his book.

“I thought you’d be with Clay.” Bryce wondered and I looked at him confused.


“You didn’t hear it? He was about to have a fight with Jeff when Tony interrupted before a teacher did.”

“I should go with Clay. See you later guys. And thank you Justin for the book.” I rushed and ran to the parking lot to look for Tony.

Suddenly I saw him with Clay. He looked mad but I knew that I had to face this.

“Clay.” I rushed and I hugged him. He pulled me away and I knew something must be really wrong.

“When you were going to tell me that you were dating Jeff?” Clay yelled.

“Dude. Calm down.” Tony interrupted him.

“I promise I was going to tell you about it. But I had no idea how to do it. He-”

“He told me. And maybe I overreacted. But I’m angry because you don’t trust me anymore.” He murmured and I turned to see Tony.

“She loves you Clay. I bet she was just waiting a good moment. You haven’t had the best days lately. Also, he asked your permission to date her.” Tony agreed.

“Fine. I’m sorry Y/n.” Clay opened his arms and I hugged him.

“I love her. I promised I wouldn’t hurt her.” Jeff interrupted behind Tony.

“I know man. You helped me a lot, it’s fine.” Clay said and I smiled.

“They even look cute. I bet they’ll take the cutest couple title from Justin and Jessica soon.” Tony teased and I laughed.

“By the way, I have to go to class. See you later Clay.” I shouted and grabbed Jeff by the hand.

“Look.” Tony told Clay looking at us. “She’s happy, and you should be happy for them. He’s a good boy, and he won’t definitely hurt her.”

“I hope so. She’s my sister and his one of my best friends. I think I can handle this know. You knew it before Jeff told me after math?”

“I knew it because Bryce told me. But I just wanted you to be fine to know about it.”

“I guess I rather Jeff around my sister than Bryce or Justin.” Clay nodded to himself and then grabbed his backpack.

“I guess I agree with that too. Now let’s go to class.”

Steve gets de-serumed and that makes him super grumpy so extreme sassy!Steve comes out. He finds it both annoying and endearing to know that his boyfriend laughs at all his sassy one-liners even when they are directed at said boyfriend. 

Tony loves his boyfriend even when he is a small ball of ‘fight-me’ and sass. Tony thinks that he might like Steve a little better this way (not that Tony doesn’t like or miss his boyfriend’s hot body but somethings are just more fun when they are seen in a different light). 

Steve gives Tony half-hearted glares and looks of annoyance but inside it makes him super happy to know that Tony loves him for him and that he loves his sass. Rarely anyone does. Most just tolerate it but Tony…Tony loves it and where there is Steve (especially de-serumed! Steve) there will always be the sass along with him. 

Tony would not have it any other way. 

anonymous asked:

I want Peter to adopt Tony. Like, he texts or calls Tony more and more about superhero stuff and science and even eventually girls (which tony is NO HELP WITH AT ALL), he crashes Tony's place and eats all of Tony's food bc teenage spiderboy metabolism so Tony has to stock the fridge like he's got a super soldier in the house again, Peter comes over after fights bc he keeps telling Aunt May he's at Tony's doing science when he's out fighting and can't go home. And Tony can't stop it at all.

YES YES YES. ALL of this. Headcanon accepted and absorbed.

“Okay, you gotta tell your kid to stop drinking my shakes,” Rhodey said with an accusing look at Tony and placed a half empty bottle on the glass table.

Tony blinked in confusion before looking up at Rhodey.

“What” he said succinctly and Rhodey rolled his eyes.

“Peter. Parker. Spiderman,” Rhodey emphasized with a hand wave, “Seriously, next time he steals my shakes, I’m gonna replace all his snacks with granola bars.”

With that remark Rhodey walked away in a huff, leaving a dumbstruck Tony staring at him.

“My kid?” he asked to the open space and stared down at his tablet before shaking his head to continue.

“Boss! I swear, keep your kid off the roads during traffic hour!” Happy grunted as he put the car into drive and took off from the office, “It’s hell waiting for girders to be lifted off the street to cross.”

“Not my kid,” Tony muttered without looking up from his phone where he squinted at Peter’s message about better texture of his suit pants, “Huh, the itching. Should have thought of that. I could get Friday to synthesize the polymer of the …”

“Iron girders,” Happy huffed under his breath and tuned out Tony’s rambling about better suits for a certain crime fighting swinging spider.

It escalated from crime fighting and couch crashing to late night visits leading to Rhodey and Tony blearily working over some stupid assignments of high school chemistry as Peter went off to nab some thug off a bank robbery. Rhodey threw a pen at Tony’s head when he once commented that Rhodey wasn’t using the right lingo for the assignment and Peter observed that Tony’s face was balanced now with another black eye-looking bruise, even though it was just ink.

“Oh no no no,” Tony stared in thinly veiled disgust at the package on the bed, “There is no way those sheets are going on any bed of mine.”

“It’s clearly not your bed,” Peter huffed as he stood beside Tony with his hands on his hips, eyeing the Captain America sheets cheekily, “C’mon, it’s cool!”

“It’s horrendous!” Tony said with an accusing gesture at the packet, “Nobody uses these sheets unless they want to be losers!”

“Yeaahh,” Rhodey dragged the word slyly with a raised eyebrow, “You never had Captain America sheets yourself, sure.”

“That’s- what - that’s not the point!” Tony exclaimed but Peter simply patted his shoulder.

“It’s over, Mom, let it go,” he said and Tony made a strangled sound before leaving in a huff.

“Mood swings,” Peter said solemnly and Rhodey snorted before throwing a pillow at his face.

“May, this is completely unacceptable!”

May Parker frowned and glanced at her phone before placing it back near her ear.

“Uh, Tony? What’s wrong?” 

“Did you know that Peter hates Neopolitan?” Tony demanded and may paused in filling her bag with groceries.


“That’s unacceptable!” Tony stated again, sounding supremely offended, “It’s against the law!”

“What law?” May asked, “Where are you guys?”

“He’s fine, he’s trashing the TV with Vision,” Tony said dismissively even as May’s eyebrows rose, “That’s not the point. The point is that no kid of mine should hate Neopolitan. It’s unnatural.”

May opened her mouth and closed it before clearing her throat.



“You do know that he’s not your real kid, right?”

“…I’m gonna go trick him into eating the ice cream. Bye hotshot!”

May stared at her phone for an entire minute before getting back to her groceries with a grumble of ‘supergenius kids and hovering mentors’.

Things got serious though, when Peter went up against Vulture and landed in the hospital for the first time since Tony had met him.

“I should have been faster,” Tony muttered into his palms, “I should have caught him.”

“You were busy bringing Vulture down,” Rhodey said for the umpteenth time, sharing a look with Happy over Tony’s shoulder, “You did the best you could.”

“The best isn’t enough!” Tony snarled, still cradling his head in his hands. It was only May’s hurried arrival that got Tony out of his seat and then he spent the entire time hovering around her till she pushed him into a seat and told him to stay put.

“He’s okay,” The doctor told after a few hours and smiled genially at the group gathered outside the room, “Family members can see him now.”

Tony started to go in with may and then stilled, awkwardly stuffing his hands into his pockets and taking a step back.

“Right. Sorry,” he said with a tight, fake smile and was about to move away when May caught his arm and told him firmly.

“I did not let that kid lie to me about ‘sciencing’ with you for days and accept that he would come back after dinner from the Compound for you to back away now,” she said and Tony’s eyes snapped up to meet hers, “You’re coming in with me. Understood?”

Tony looked at the calm looking woman for a minute before giving her a tired but real small smile.

“Yeah, yeah, let’s go,” he nodded and May released his hand before pushing the door open.

“Well,” Happy slapped his thighs and got up from his seat, “guess we should go and restock the fridge.”

“Yeah,” Rhodey agreed with a small smirk before scowling at Happy, “But I’m sharpie-ing my stuff. Kid’s still stealing my shakes.”

“Aww, you love him,” Happy teased and yelped when Rhodey pushed him back into his chair.

Eh, just a random drabble from some of your ideas. Great headcanon btw <3

anonymous asked:

I love headcanons abt tony supporting trans peter!!! I was wondering if you had any/what are your favorites?

i really don’t think tony has reached a father figure point in peter’s life yet (i think he will though), instead i feel like he’s more of a drunk and well-meaning uncle to peter. and being the drunk and well-meaning uncle he is, he’s Trying His Best™

tony worries about peter already, probably more than he thought he could ever worry about someone else besides pepper. bc he’s always worrying about the other avengers and still does, but with peter it’s different bc he’s so fucking young. and he knows how strong peter is, he knows the kid can lift up to 75 tons, he knows he’s stronger than most of the other avengers combined, but he’s still a kid and even though it’s illogical tony continues to worry

so when peter comes out as trans to tony, it feels like such a small detail about the kid after everything tony has seen him do. nothing really changes, tony still worries about peter who happens to be trans. it isn’t a big deal, and honestly he almost forgets about it.

but then he begins thinking more about it, and when tony thinks he worries. does peter bind while fighting?? he learns that this is a no, peter has had top surgery. does the testosterone mesh well with how the spider bite has altered his dna?? after running some tests with peter’s permission, it turns out the testosterone is working perfectly with peter’s new dna, if anything the mutated dna has only enhanced the effects of the testosterone.

but does peter get bullied???

and that’s how tony finds himself sitting in his lab, an angry peter parker yelling at him for the invasion of privacy of having a drone follow him to school, and tony has to explain that he was worried kids may be bullying peter. and as soon as he says that he feels like an idiot. he doesn’t really know what his plan there was. what would he do if they were bullying peter?? beat up a bunch of 16 year olds????

“listen,” peter sighs. “i know you worry about me, mr. stark, but really i’m fine. i can deal with what those guys throw at me.”

“i know. sorry, kid, i’ll try to cool it. i should have listened to pepper, she said that was a step too far,” tony laughs, already planning to tell pepper that this went well so she won’t be able to say ‘i told you so’

peter plops down in the seat across from tony. “you kinda remind me of my uncle ben, you know. except you’re richer. and you’re a bit of a dick. and my uncle ben never had manicured facial hair. and –”

“is there a point to this?”

“i had a dad, he was my uncle ben. he’s still my dad, he just passed away. and i know how
much he worried about me, just as much as you do now. and i know the worrying doesn’t really go away when you care about somebody, i get that. but i’m gonna be okay, tony. i promise.”

and tony knew that was a lie, because he says shit like that all the time to people. but maybe peter thought it was the truth? he wasn’t sure.

“don’t compare me to your dad. i’m not your dad.”

“thank god for that, do you know how embarrassing it would be to have a dad that wore tinted glasses everywhere???”

If the MCU writers make Tony fucking Stark apologize to Captain Fuckoff I’m going to be pissed. Tony was, for once, trying to do things without violence or anything else he was trying to do it the right way. Steven Rogers ignored over 100 countries telling him that they didn’t feel safe without some kind of safeguard on the Avengers but somehow Rogers knows better than all of them? I don’t think so. Steve Rogers is one man and he has an insane god complex, he can’t stand it when anyone stands up to him or argues with him which is all Tony does. Tony has had to listen to the praises of Steve Rogers since childhood, there’s a saying that you should never actually meet your childhood heros and this is exactly why. Did Tony make mistakes? Yes. Yes he did but did he run from them? Hell no. Tony does not deserve the shit he gets from this fandom. Tony is a man who suffers from severe panic attacks, PTSD, anxiety, depression, and god only knows what else yet I’ve never seen anyone actually stop and ask the man if he’s okay or if he needs help yet Bucky, who was brainshwashed, gets coddled and told it’s not his fault. 

The Accords were going to happen with or without Tony’s signature so he just signed so there wouldn’t be any trouble because he knew he could try to get a better deal and get them amended once they were passed. Did Cap even read them? Because as far as I know he did not read that fucking long as book called a document. As far as I know none of Team Cap read the Accords, they just followed Captain America. Yet they had no trust in Tony. It’s funny because Tony got called out for not trusting authority yet in the one movie he does everyone else calls him a coward and traitor for it. Steve Rogers called him out on keeping secrets and then what do we have here? Steve Rogers kept a secret! He kept the fact that Tony’s parents were not only murdered but also murdered by the very man he’s disregarding everything for and then tries to lie to Tony about it? 

Yep! That’s the man I want to follow! 

Tony offered Cap a way to bring in Barnes legally and without consequence when he offered that 24 hour grace period and Cap shoved it back in his face. Cap didn’t even ask the others on his team what they would have wanted and as far as I could tell he didn’t even tell them that Tony tried to compromise with him. He just let them all think that Tony was being unreasonable when in fact he gave him several chances for all of this to go away and to not happen. Let’s also not forget the fact that Cap injured several CIVILIANS in that pursuit with Bucky, that was not an Avenger’s mission that was a Cap mission. And we had no clue that Bucky was innocent at that time. Cap found out evidence later that could have given Bucky his innocence in the eyes of the law but he didn’t tell anyone that. He hid information which he should have shared, more secrets on his side!

And can we talk about Wanda please? Am I the only one in this fandom who thinks that she should be controlled? Yes I know that she didn’t mean for her powers to go out of control but when she was working for Ultron and turning the Avengers inside out she didn’t seem to have any problems with her powers then. But now she doesn’t fully understand them and Tony keeps her locked up, without her permission yes, because he’s trying to protect her! If you saw someone with that kind of power that obviously couldn’t control it on the streets wouldn’t you be scared because I would. What if someone had attacked Wanda and made her defend herself? That wouldn’t have helped anyone not be afraid of her, in fact they probably would have grown to fear her even more. She keeps blaming Stark for her parent’s death but really is it his fault? Yes Tony might have designed that missile but he had no reason to attack her country and he said that once he saw the true harm his weapons were doing that he shut down the weapons manufacturing for good. Now look at the time frame, that was about 7 or 8 years ago. Wanda lost her parents about 20 years ago, TONY DID NOT DO IT. Does ignorance equal innocence? No but he also shouldn’t be help accountable for it. 

And how dare they make Tony smile at that piece of garbage letter. That wasn’t an apology, that was Rogers rubbing it all in Tony’s face. I guarantee you that if someone asked Rogers if he would change anything he did in that movie he would say he wouldn’t change anything because he believed he was right. “The Avengers are your family, maybe even more so than mine.” Are you fucking serious. How many Avengers sided with Tony in this debate? In this series we had Cap, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Hulk, Thor, Black Widown; that’s who started out. Hulk and Thor are MIA in this movie and Cap and Iron Man are obviously on their own sides so that leaves the two spies. One of which sides with Cap the other sided with Tony and then backstabbed him and accused him of letting his ego get the better of him. Yep. One hell of a family. 

Then we add to that fact Vision, Wanda, Falcon, Ant Man, Spider Man, War Machine, Black Panther. Vision is basically Tony’s son so yes he sided with him. War Machine has been his friend for over 20 years so yeah he’s with him. Ant Man has never met him yet hates him because someone said never trust a Stark when he has no idea why he’s even fighting Tony, just blindly follows Cap. Falcon just follows Cap because he’s never interacted with Tony really. Wanda hates Tony so yeah not with him, Black Panther is only after Bucky at this point, yes he’s for the Accords but at this point he just wants Barnes dead so if you can say he’s on Tony’s side then I guess. Spider Man was just there to help clean up, he was not supposed to get into a fight with a Super Soldier. WHO DROPPED A LARGE AND HEAVY OBJECT ON TOP OF A KID WITH NO REMORSE. 

In the end most of the Avengers end up with Rogers in Wakanda while Tony ends up with a crippled War Machine and heart broken Vision while he himself recovers from a fight with TWO SUPER SOLDIERS. Both of who tried to kill him yet Tony could have used his repulsors and DID NOT USE THEM. He was pulling punches in that fight don’t even say he wasn’t because his suit still had power when Cap was on top of him and he had his hands up but didn’t shoot when that sheild was brought down on his Arc Reactor. That isn’t pulling punches, that’s going for the kill. 

Captain America was trying to kill him.  

Infinity Wars had better not have Tony apologizing or using that phone to call Rogers for help. 

Rogers had better go to tony for help because Tony has no reason to protect those people anymore. 

Tony can and will pull through without the Avengers, without his FAMILY, because they all back stabbed him when he needed them.

Give me Tony who realizes that for once he did the right thing and doesn’t take Rogers’ sanctimonious shit for even one second. 

Tony Stark does not deserve this and Steve Rogers does not even deserve to be in the same hemisphere as Tony Stark as far as I’m concerned. 


This is for @nickvallentiness! Who was right about the stuffed animals names!

Prompt: Ahh idek! Maybe Phil,Sam and Peter (plus Rhodey and Pepper) organise a day out for the kids like the beach or swimming and tony won’t get in the water and Peter has to help him conquer his fear? Idk you can run with it and do whatever you want cause I’m sure I’ll love whatever you write anyway!! ❤️


Peter stretches. What a wonderful day. They are in a safe house now so they can have some time without worrying about anything than the kids. Fury himself said so.

The Guardians are on duty now. Minus Peter of course, Tony wouldn’t let him go.

“Are you happy?” Peter asks when he picks Tony up.

“Happy, happy, happy.” Tony giggles and holds onto Peter’s neck.

“And what are we doing today?” Peter asks and Tony smiles shyly.

“Beach!” he squeals and Peter nods.

“That’s right. So let’s see what we need for that.” Peter sets Tony down onto his changing table and looks around.

Phil had the idea that they could take the kids to the beach, since they were all friends now. Sam is still exhausted from Bucky and Steve so he is glad for some variety.

Peter had also asked Rhodey and Pepper to join them. And Phil said nobody could find them on the beach in front of the safe house. Since nobody can know about the superheroes being kids.

“So I have a blanket for us, sunscreen especially for you, hmm Phil has all the snacks and some juice for you all. I have some swim shorts for me and some toys for you. So I guess only your outfit is left.” says Peter and opens Tony’s wardrobe again.

“Colour?” he asks Tony and Tony thinks about it really hard. He looks like winnie-the-pooh when he does that, because he taps with his hand against his forehead.

“Red!” says Tony smiling and Peter nods.

“Look it has a cute little duck on it!” Peter says and then helps Tony into his own tiny swim short. He also dresses Tony in a light blue shirt and a blue toddler kepi

“Ready?” Tony asks and claps his hands.

“Yeah I think so. Let’s see where the others are!” Peter says and when he sets Tony down, the boy immediately runs down the corridor.

“Beach, beach, beach!” he squeals and Peter laughs.

He is so glad, that Tony feels free and happy with them. He deserves all the love he gets. But to be honest Peter is a bit nervous of going to the beach today. Tony doesn’t like water.

Peter can give him a bath, but Tony always looks afraid in the water and holds onto Peter’s shirt the whole time. But he could build some sandcastles with Tony or such things.

They would be fine.

Peter follows Tony and takes their bag with him. The others are already in the living room. Phil holds Natasha’s and Clint’s hand. Bucky and Steve are playing with some cars, while Sam talks to Pepper.

Tony is on Rhodey’s lap and giggles.

“Petey! I wanna go now.” Tony whines and he even pouts. Peter laughs and when Tony holds his hands up, takes him from Rhodey.

“Everyone ready?” Peter asks and when he gets the approval from everyone they go outside. It’s a really short walk and Peter sees that the others already have some blankets and sun umbrellas ready.

“Sam! Sam! Can we go swimming?” Steve asks when they are all sitting on the blankets. He behaves a lot better since he became friends with Tony. Sam rolls his eyes but he grins.

“I wanna go too!” Bucky whispers shyly and looks at the water. Sam takes both boys and helps them with their swim rings.

“Do you need some help?” Rhodey asks and Sam seems relieved, that he doesn’t have to go alone in the water with both boys. Peter smiles when he sees how Rhodey helps Bucky with the swimming and Sam helps Steve.

Bucky seems to swim really good for his age. Steve not so much, but Sam holds him.

“I wanna build a sandcastle.” Clint says and he forces Phil to build one with him. Natasha is lying on her blanket and just looks at Pepper.

“How do you do your hair like that?” Natasha asks and Pepper laughs, but explains to her what braids are. Natasha seems so excited, that Pepper helps her to braid her own hair.

Peter sighs happily and looks at his sweet boy.

“What do you wanna do?” Peter asks then and Tony looks up. He seems overwhelmed and shrugs.

“Uhm… I don’t know. I wanna do what you like.” Tony whispers and he takes his thumb into his mouth. Peter smiles and takes a pacifier out. He helps Tony with that and takes the sunscreen out.

“Okay bambino. Safety first, we need to protect your skin from the sun. And then we could go and join Bucky and Steve?” Peter tries because he knows how much Tony loves those two.

He also loves Clint and Natasha but Steve and Bucky seem more like big brothers to him. Especially Bucky.

“Ok.” Tony says around his pacifier and he looks over to the water. He seems a bit nervous, just like Peter thought he would.

Peter helps him with the sunscreen first and then searches for the floaties, that he took with him. Because never in his life would he let Tony go into the water without any support.

“What’s that?” Tony asks and points at the floaties. They are a pale yellow and have little ducks on it. Peter smiles.

“They will help you swim.” Peter answers carefully and then starts to blow air into them. Tony watches Peter but he still looks nervous about the whole thing.

“Is…the water cold?” Tony asks when Peter puts the floaties around his arms. God they are a bit big. Why is Tony so small? (Not that Peter complains, he loves his sweet little boy.)

“Nah, probably not. I mean you know how Steve and Bucky are with the cold.” Peter answers and then pulls of his shirt. He holds his hand out and Tony reaches slowly for it.

He looks so ridiculous with the big floaties, his swim shorts and the toddler kepi. Peter wants to eat him.

“Oh are you joining us?” Sam asks when Peter and Tony go over to the water. Tony nods shyly, but he looks at the water and shudders.

“You don’t have to go in there you know?” Peter says when he sees how Tony looks. But Tony shakes his head and takes a deep breath. Before Peter can say anything else, Tony turns around and runs toward their blanket again.

“Aw seems like we won’t join you.” Peter says but he is not even completely turned around when Tony runs back to him. This time without his pacifier that is now sitting with Eddy on the blanket.

“Okay.” Tony says shyly and holds his hand out again. Peter laughs a bit.

“You sure?” Peter asks again because he doesn’t want Tony to have a panic attack or anything like that.

“Gonna be brave! Just like you.” Tony answers and Peter laughs. Tony had seen him workout the other day and told everyone Peter was now his hero. What would he say when he would see Peter as Guardian in a real fight?

Tony takes a step a forward and his feet touch the water for the first time. Tony whimpers at that but he smiles a bit.

“Feels funny.” Tony says shyly and wiggles his toes a bit in the wet sand. It breaks Peter’s heart that Tony never had been to a beach as a kid.

“I know. Do you wanna go deeper?” Peter asks and when Tony nods, Peter goes into the water. They stop when the water reaches Tony’s knees.

“S-stop.” Tony says then and Peter does stop in a second. Tony comes closer and reaches for Peters swim shorts. He looks so scared and then another wave hits them. Tony whimpers again.

“Tony!” Steve squeals and runs over to them. But he splashes the water on his way to Tony and Peter looks down to see that Tony starts crying at that. Before Peter can pick him up another wave startles Tony and he falls on his butt. The water is close to his chin and Tony cries even louder.

Peter picks him up immediately and Steve stops.

“What happened?” Steve asks and he sounds worried. Tony shakes his head and buries his face against Peter’s neck.

“He was just startled by the water. It’s not your fault.” Peter answers and he rocks Tony a bit in his arms. Tony is still crying and he hiccups sadly.

“Aww Tony.” Bucky says and he swims over to them. He was a bit deeper in the water with Rhodey. Tony looks up when he sees that Bucky is swimming.

“H-how do you do that?” Tony asks and he rubs over his eyes. He seems okay again but his smile wobbles a lot.

“Swim?” Bucky asks and Tony nods. He puts his thumb into his mouth and seems really interested in that. Bucky shows him how he swims with the swim ring. Peter sees how Rhodey watches him in case something happens.

Steve is with Sam but then tries to swim as well. It doesn’t look as good as it did when Bucky swam. But he doesn’t drown. Tony giggles a bit and then looks at Peter.

“Can I swim, too?” he asks shyly and Peter kisses his wet cheek.

“I’m afraid you can’t darling. We need to teach you first. And you really have to be in the water for that.” Peter explains and Tony nods sadly.

“B-but when I’m not afraid anymore will you help me?” Tony asks and takes his thumb out of his mouth. He reaches down to the water and wiggles his fingers.

“Of course. But I have another idea, hm? We can try together. You can hold onto me?” Peter asks and Tony nods. He still seems afraid but he trusts Peter. It makes his heart hurt so much is he loving this sweet boy.

“Okay put your arms around my neck and hold onto me, yeah?” Peter says and Tony does that. Peter is glad about the floaties and then Peter goes into the deeper water. When the water goes to Peter’s chest he helps Tony onto his back.

“Oh!” Tony gasps when he sits on Peters back and Peter swims a bit.

“You like it?” Peter asks when he carries Tony and Tony is squealing with laughter then. Peter can hear Steve asking Sam if they could do that, too. Bucky swims beside Peter.

“Bucky look! I’m in the water!” Tony shrieks happily and Peter is so glad his boy is giggling again. It’s still his favourite sound. The water goes to Tony’s shoulders and Peter is proud of his brave boy.

“You are doing good Tony!” Bucky says then and Rhodey laughs, when Tony grins at them.

Half an hour later they go out of the water again. Peter feels really relaxed and Tony even splashed a bit in the water. He seemed happy and is now sitting in the wet sand playing with some toys.

“He seems happy.” Rhodey says when he sits next to Peter.

“I really believe he is happy.” Peter answers and Rhodey nods. Since Tony is so small Rhodey is here with him more often. Peter is glad Tony has such a good friend. Even though they are years apart now. Same with Pepper.

“Petey! Look!” Tony screams then and for a moment Peter believes he is in pain. He runs over to him but Tony smiles and points at something Peter can’t see.

“I made a friend!” Tony says proudly and then Peter sees a little crab in the sand. Tony had built a little sandcastle and the crab was now sitting in the moat that was filled with water.

“Oh.” Peter says a bit surprised, but Tony just smiles so brightly, that Peter can’t help himself, so he smiles back.

“Of course you made a new friend bambino. Everybody should want to be friends with you!” Peter says and he sits down next to his little boy.

Tony looks away when he blushes and builds another little tower with his little bucket. Peter just smiles.

“What’s his name?” Peter asks and the crab moves a bit away. Tony lays his head to one side and then laughs.

“Mr. Crabs.” Tony says and the crab lifts one pincer and Tony giggles. He holds his hand to the crab and touches the pincer with his pinkie. Peter is afraid that the crab will hurt him, but it doesn’t. Instead he realized Tony just gave the crab a high five.

Peter laughs loudly. What a silly boy.

The crab seems to have enough and crawls slowly away. Tony looks a bit sad at that, but he waves after the crab, when it disappears into the water.

“Petey… will you… really teach me to swim one day?” Tony asks and he looks at the water next to them. Peter wants to teach him, but he knows that the adult Tony hated the water.

But maybe…maybe Peter could show him a new world now. A better life.

“If you want me to.” Peter answers finally and Tony stands up to hug him.

“Thank you.” Tony mumbles and Peter strokes his wet hair. Tony looks exhausted but also very happy.

“Why do you wanna learn it?” Peter asks then and he thinks it’s because of the other kids. Like Tony wants to do everything Bucky and Steve are doing. But Tony smiles shyly.

“Mr. Crabs told me I should visit him in the ocean and meet his friends. Maybe I can meet Ariel, too.” Tony says and Peter hugs him very tightly. He can’t believe Tony is so innocent and cute.

“Oh I have something for you!” Tony squeals then and goes over to his other bucket. He pulls out a little shell and holds it up for Peter.

“Aw thank you!” Peter says and takes the little shell.

“It’s because I love you.” Tony whispers and kisses Peter on the cheek before he runs over to the others and asks them for some cookies, when he sees the other kids are already eating them.

“I love you too, bambino. And I will do everything to protect you.” Peter whispers. He can hear the other laughing.

“Nooo. The last one is for Petey!” Tony whines when Bucky takes the last cookie. Bucky gives it to Tony, who puts it on Peter’s place on the blanket.

Peter watches his little boy and…he doesn’t want him to grow up ever. But can you blame him?

anonymous asked:

"I love the juxtaposition here..." What do you think how Steve in AoU seemed to say that Steve Rogers died in 1945 and there is only Captain America now. That he doesn't deserve home and family (with Natasha!) and there is only war for him. I was sadden by it for Cap has always been my favorite (especially with Evens Portrayal) I believe he deserves some peace (with Natasha!).

(x). Oh man, Anon. I feel like Steve’s PTSD was one of the few things Age of Ultron did right. (Although before I start, I should mention I don’t ship Natasha and Steve as anything but friends). There were so many lines in AOU that gave insight into Steve’s depression, listlessness, and feelings of disconnect. It’s woven into every Steve scene, and it’s amazing.

Right at the start of the movie, Sam encourages Steve to look for a place in Brooklyn, but Steve keeps resisting. He jokes that it’s too expensive, but he doesn’t reply when Sam says “But home is home, y’know?”. In fact, he looks pretty forlorn, staring out at the party below – not joining in, separated from it all. It’s a thousand yard stare, typical of PTSD and the battle-worn soldier.

BecauseIt’s questionable whether Brooklyn is Steve’s home anymore. Can Brooklyn still be home, if all the buildings are gone, the old neighbourhoods have vanished, friends and family are dead? What is home to Steve? 1945? Because if that’s true… he can never go home. The concept of ‘home’ continuously plagues Steve throughout the film, with many direct references.

In the same scene, he tells Bruce in a self-deprecating tone that he’s the “world’s leading authority on waiting too long”. It implies that he hasn’t moved on from Peggy and still feels regret. It’s important to note that this is all said and done at a party that’s happening because the Avengers have ‘put an end’ to HYDRA. Steve should be thrilled, but instead you see how lonely and out of place he feels. He spends more time wandering than interacting with the other Avengers – with one exception. He spends significant time with Thor, who really IS the Outsider. It says a lot.

…And then Wanda’s vision scene. Where the dancing turns to brawling and the wine stains become blood. That moment gave the best insight into Steve’s PTSD. His perception is forever tainted: war is all he sees, and he can’t escape its horrible aftermath. Worse, when Peggy asks him to imagine going home, the dance hall empties. Steve literally can’t imagine it. 

He’s always on the outside, looking in: people celebrate the war being over as he walks through their scene, but his own dance hall is empty. There’s this horrible melancholia to the entire scene that really emphasizes Steve’s isolation.

Then we reach the farm. Again, it’s Thor and Steve – the outsiders – who are most uncomfortable with Clint’s family. Steve basically clings to Thor until Thor leaves, and then Steve can’t cross the threshold to go back inside the house. It’s a home that slipped from his grasp when he crashed the plane; the quiet, 1950s life he should have had, but can no longer touch, and I think that hurts him. The American flag in contrast to Steve’s uniform is a nice touch.

When Tony mentions that Steve walked away from Wanda’s vision seemingly undisturbed, it’s just another tell. The vision didn’t shake Steve because it was nothing new, the same PTSD he lives with daily. And when Tony remarks “Isn’t why we fight so we can end the fight? So we can go home?”, Steve rips a log in half. Because again, what is home to Steve? He has no home. His fight doesn’t end, as his vision showed him. Poor Steve’s lost sight – he doesn’t even know why he fights, anymore. There’s a line later on where he mentions they may be monsters, which is such an unusual line for Steve.

The only thing Steve feels like he has anymore is Captain America: it’s his only place, purpose, and sense of belonging. It sounds like it’s the only reason he leaves the house (”I have no plans tomorrow night”). I mean, the only time Steve has friends is when he’s Cap, when he’s fighting some battle. Except Steve has no control over this Captain America; the idea became something beyond Steve while he was on ice, possibly even spun out of control, so even his superhero persona isn’t his own. Steve Rogers is fading fast, and this idealized Cap is taking over (”Language!”). There’s practically NOTHING that Steve can say is his: no home, no personality, and no persona. That’s jarring, and scary as hell. Because then you have to ask… who is Steve?

Of course, there’s hope. In CATWS, Natasha gets a glimpse of Steve Rogers, and she sees him as something more than Captain America – not the other way around. His friendship with Sam is a good way to bring stability to Steve’s life, although now Sam is an Avenger, so maybe not. But I think Bucky’s presence will help Steve most of all. Whether you ship them or not, you can’t deny that Bucky is Steve’s connection to who he once was.

Steve’s friendship with Bucky was huge part of his personality, back when he was skinny Steve Rogers. Bucky was with him through everything (”best friends since childhood…”) and helped shape who Steve became – they practically defined themselves through each other. So I believe that Bucky’s story is a reason for Steve to keep fighting, and watching Bucky find himself again may be the push Steve needs to find himself, too. I disagree that Steve Rogers is dead and gone – I just think he’s completely lost himself, and I’m hoping in Civil War, his reunion with Bucky will bring him back to who he once was. Just like Steve carried with him who Bucky was, and helped Bucky remember – Bucky will help Steve remember himself, too. Because Bucky is home.

Steve didn’t betray Tony at the Airport.

They were there to catch a ride and go the Siberia to stop the other Winter Soldiers and Zemo. They never expected Ironman and the others to be there. Heck, Steve didn’t even start the fight, Tony did when he called for Spider-Man to web away the shield and bind Cap’s hands. 

He once again tried to tell Tony, but he didn’t want to hear it and told Cap to hand over Bucky. So where did he betray him? If anything STEVE was betrayed because Team Ironman didn’t believe him  not one bit. If not on Zemo part, at least they could have thought over the other Winter Soldier bit? 

Why would Steve lie about something of that magnitude? If i found out they were more brainwashed super soldier assassins like Bucky about to released to the world i would had been alarmed. But Ironman and Co didn’t even fancy the thought. Because they didn’t listen they fought, Rhodey got paralyzed, and Wanda, Sam, Scott, and Clint got thrown in prison, and an airport got wrecked.

But the Stans say that Steve somehow betrayed Stank?! How? They must have selective memory or they warped it so they can stan Stank even more.

Okay but does anyone actually believe Steve would support the fact that tony stopped making weapons for the US military? Does anyone actually believe Steve, THE SOLDIER Steve, the guy who signed up to be used as a test dummy for an unethical science experiment, the guy who basically BECAME a weapon to be used in a war, would support tony leaving US soldiers with sub par weapons from hammer industries? That he would support how Tony refuses to support the US military in the war? Steve who only has military friends and would have killed to make sure his friends had every advantage over the enemy in WW2? Like smh if you’re one of the idiots who thinks tony stark is a war criminal but i can guarantee you Steve would have respected tony a lot more if tony still gave the US weapons after Afghanistan as well as ensure that terrorists didn’t have those weapons.

In fact I’m now almost 100% certain that when Steve said “you only fight for yourself” he was referencing how Tony refuses to give his weapons and the iron man suit to the US government. That he jeopardises soldiers because he “wants the glory all to himself.” Or that hes doing it just to clear his own conscience and doesn’t actually care for the soldiers who use his weapons.

Anyway Steve Rogers is pro-weapons and Tony Stark is anti-weapons and though i believe when Steve learned to respect tony he also learned to respect his decision, he still doesn’t agree with it.

Bullet Points

Hey, Tumblr! I wanted to tell you about Bullet Points, my new favorite canonical Marvel AU, so that maybe I can convince you to love it too! So I have prepared a summary and picspam! I had not even heard of Bullet Points until I found someone on the internet saying there should be Steve/Tony fanfic set in Bullet Points. And then I read Bullet Points, and oh my God, does there ever need to be Steve/Tony fanfic set in Bullet Points.

(Don’t worry, I have written some, because I try to be the change I want to see. But there needs to be more!)

Bullet Points is a five-issue limited series from 2007 by J. Michael Straczynski and Tommy Lee Edwards. It’s definitely of interest to Steve/Tony fans, or at least to Steve/Tony fans who are willing to do a bit of work with the timeline to get them together. But I am pretty sure Steve/Tony fandom will like the premise.

You see, Bullet Points is a universe where skinny Steve Rogers is Iron Man in World War II. And he survives World War II. I knew you were interested.

I hate Tony too, but Peter is putting himself in danger. Toy actually encourages him to stay out of the big leagues because he knows no matter what he says Peter won't stop trying to be a hero. He actually kept him far safer by telling hi to not fuck around in the big leagues, although I hate tony for all his bullshit in CW

Did you watch Civil War? Like y’all know the only reason Peter is even like, aware of the big leagues is because Tony brought him into the big leagues because Tony thought him useful against Steve. Tony is the reason Peter was there. And then after giving Peter a taste of what he could have, Tony takes it away from him and tells him he’s not ready. And like Peter said “That’s not what you were saying when you needed me to fight Cap.” He was ready when he was useful to Tony, but when Tony doesn’t have the immediate need for him, he’s not ready because Tony doesn’t want him getting hurt on his conscience.
And then the way that when Peter tried to help people in New York, Tony just like, belittled him, made him feel like he wasn’t good enough, made Peter feel like Tony didn’t value him enough to listen to his information. And then he did the shittiest thing of turning around and saying “everyone else told me i was wrong to get you involved, no one else believed in you, some 14 year old kid” like, that’s such a shitty thing to say to someone. And Tony didn’t even know his actual age when he got him involved. So to conclude, Tony is a manipulative piece of shit and I want him away from Peter Parker. 


Thor/Tony Stark AU

Tony Stark is a merchant, selling fine goods to customers across the seas. On one voyage, his ship is struck by a vicious storm. Only he survives, washing up the next morning on a deserted island with nothing but the clothes on his back.

Thor is of the merfolk and witnesses the ship sink. He notices Tony, aiding him to shore when he fell unconscious fighting the powerful waves and keeps a close eye on him. 

When Tony wakes and discovers Thor, he is terrified and defensive at first, but Thor begins bringing him fish and tools to make a home, also being sure to keep Tony safe from any dangers at sea, slowly earning Tony’s trust and affections.

um protective tony/or seeing people give clay shit about anything headcanons (btw so happy the clony love is growing <3)

1. Once they officially become a public couple, Tony tells Clay to tell him whenever he’s getting shit or if anyone’s bothering him and he’ll make sure it gets handled.

2. Tony has a reputation of being a “bad boy” at school due to his appearance. There’s also stories floating around about how he and his brothers solve their problems.

3. Tony has literally slammed people such as Justin and Bryce up against the school’s lockers and has threatened them to stay the fuck away from Clay.

4. One time they went out together to a bar and some guy was feeling up on Clay. Tony promptly punched him straight in the face and got them kicked out. (“I hope I broke that fucking guy’s nose.”)

5. Clay finds it endearing to see how much Tony cares and protects him but he’s always trying to reassure him that he can take care of himself.

6. Often times, Clay has to hold Tony back from getting into fights and screaming matches. He can notice when Tony starts to get angry by the way his body tenses, eyes narrow, and fists clench. (“Tony just drop it, who cares.” “I fucking care Clay! People aren’t gonna mess with you and get away with it!”)
