Expect the Unexpected
In the field, everyone knows Steve is top dog. He’s the alpha of the Avengers in battle, the head honcho, the one calling the shots. He takes care of them all, makes sure everyone comes home.

Behind closed doors, though, Tony is the pack alpha. Which was, you know. Weird at first. The weeks post-Loki had been a little, uh, tense. What with everyone trying to figure out their place in the team hierarchy. Tony had thought Steve was the pack alpha, the team’s center. As it turned out, though, everyone- even Steve- deferred to him. What movie were they watching together? Oh I don’t know, Tony, you pick. Tony can you hold me. Tony can you sit with me. Tony I need you. Tony thank you so much.

Steve is alpha in battle. Tony is alpha in home. It had chafed at first, all his nasty self-confidence issues and self-doubt and self-loathing rearing their ugly heads. He could barely take care of himself. How the fuck was he supposed to take care of a pack?

But things had come naturally, surprisingly enough. If Steve was the pack’s strength, then Tony was its heart, however odd that struck him at times.


Bucky Barnes needs a place to stay. Tony Stark has that place.
