Wishful Thinking
But Tony was happy with Ms. Potts, and in love, and Steve didn’t want to be the one to ruin that.  So he’d let Tony keep up his work for SHIELD and didn’t call him quite as much to spend the days together and told himself it was for the best. Steve was still his friend, he wasn’t putting an end to that, it was just . . . he needed to do this right.


He thought he saw hurt in Tony’s eyes after that, in his voice when Steve turned down an invitation or two, but . . . he told himself it wasn’t that big a thing.  And more than that, that it was the right thing.  Even when it made his stomach clench up painfully, and his chest feel tight.  Which happened all the time, when he saw something he wanted to tell Tony about, and then remembered that he shouldn’t text it to him, or send him a message.

Relativistic Heat Conduction
“We need you strong, Steve,” Tony said, and Steve’s head bowed, and a wrench of guilt twisted in Tony’s stomach.  But after a moment, Steve nodded and let Tony draw him behind the boxes so the others wouldn’t see them—bad for morale for the team to see their leader getting looked after, and they both knew it.  There wasn’t much privacy available, but Tony could do what he could.  He grabbed a blanket and spread it on the ground before he nudged Steve to sit down on it, and Steve just sank onto it with a low sigh, brought his knees up and buried his head in his arms.


Tony just knelt there for a moment, medical kit half-open in his hands, taken aback at the pure hopelessness of the position, the way Steve had curled in on himself.  He hadn’t expected—


Which was completely unfair.  Of course Steve was grieving, he told himself angrily.  Didn’t he deserve to be as hurt by this, as devastated by everything that had happened, as any of them?  Worse—he’d made the calls, he had to feel responsible, even if they’d been the right ones, there’d just been nothing any of them could do.  It was selfish, unforgivably selfish, of him to just expect strength from Steve so that he could lean on him.  Steve deserved to lean on someone else sometimes, too, didn’t he?  Tony swallowed.

Tony starts calling Steve "boss," and Steve has all sorts of feelings about it. It ends up coming up in bed. The results open up some new areas in their sexual relationship, and maybe reveal a few things about Tony, and how he feels about Steve.

Got You Under My Skin
“Well, yes,” Tony said.  “But I’m very available to you.  And safe.  And you shouldn’t have to settle for safe, if you want to hook up, I mean, I’d be more than happy to, but—”


“Really?” Steve asked, feeling like a drowning man seizing on an offered rope as he fell on that piece of information. “You would?  Be happy to?”


Tony’s hand stilled, and then he slowly swiped his thumb over his phone, turning it off and stowing it in his pocket again. “Yes,” he said, and took a slow, deep breath.  “I would be.”


“Would you?” Steve demanded.  He swallowed, took another deep breath and felt heat surge up into his face, and the instinctive jitters that went along with talking about this, even now, despite himself.  “Goddamn it, Tony, are you a fairy or aren’t you? Am I making a fool of myself here, or not?  Put a fella out of his misery already.”

Miles to Go (Before I Sleep) | SakuraTsukikage | 3,082 words
More than anything else, he just wanted Tony’s company. It was part of being together to share the same bed, or he’d always thought so, and, well, it was lonely and oddly disorienting, lying in Tony’s big bed by himself while Tony was working down here. Steve didn’t mind—well, not much—but he would have preferred Tony there with him. And it couldn’t be good for Tony to keep the hours he did, anyway.
