Reflexes
Bucky meets the team and manages to survive the experience, Tony is his usual dysfunctional self, and Steve pouts with deadly force.

//

When Bucky emerges from the lab, feeling wrung out and smug as fuck about it, Steve is sitting on one of the couches in the living room, reading from a tablet. He looks up, and immediately both flushes bright red and gives him the ultimate disappointed face. Normally, Bucky would feel awful about that, but the endorphins are currently cancelling out all of his shame.

“That was quick,” Steve says, sounding slightly strangled.

“We’re men of action,” Bucky says breezily. “What can I say?” Even his new arm feels well-fucked. The future is fantastic.

“Yeah, well,” Steve mutters, going even redder. Bucky despairs of him, but takes pity anyway.

If You Rescue Me
Tony Stark doesn’t complain when the Avengers move into his mansion, even though Steve thinks he has every right to be annoyed.

He doesn’t complain when Bruce meets Jarvis for the first time and totally freaks out, more or less destroying the kitchen. Or when Natasha hacks her way into his workshop and borrows his newest model of the repulsor because she’s feuding with Cyclops. Or when Clint shoots the left front tire of his Ferrari as he pulls into the drive and claims he had been aiming for something on the drive—not Tony’s car. Or when Steve completely demolishes the gym at six in the morning. Or when Thor loves his new phone (which was a prototype, the only existing model) so much that he throws it on the ground, shattering it into pieces.

Instead, Tony introduces Bruce to Jarvis and then hires some guys to remodel the kitchen; he amps up security on his workshop and builds Natasha a miniature repulsor of her own; he buys a new tire; he invents some less breakable equipment for the gym; he makes an even better phone.

Even though any other man would have complained, for some reason Tony doesn’t.

Which is why Steve is so surprised when Tony loudly objects to the kittens.

The Last Love Song of Anthony E. Stark
The pressure between his ribs opens like a strongbox. If there is something precious hidden inside, kept away from prying eyes and the dirt and the ice hardening beneath Tony's fingernails, he does not know it. There's an image in his mind that he can't shake out — a nine-pointed flower, black and purple as a bruise. It opens and spreads outwards, balancing on the tip of one finger. He stares at it, and then looks down to find himself holding it. An itch develops behind one eye, and it spreads further, burrowing deep into his head. There's something important, he thinks, and the conviction hits him between the ribs, but he doesn't know what it is. He doesn't know what's important out here, where he's sitting in the snow and the stone, with the pillars of dead warriors watching him with solemn, serene faces.

A man is trudging towards him, forcing a path through the snow. The man is tall and blond, dressed in drab brown. He's handsome in a way that makes Tony ache, but then it makes him afraid, because there's something wrong with this. He can't name what it is, but this is not as it should be. This is an equation with the wrong variable, it's a design with the wrong dimensions.

Tony has a knife in his pocket, flat and cold against his palm when he draws it. "Don't come any closer!" he says as the man approaches. The nine-pointed flower falls from his finger and dissolves like a bloodstain.

"Tony," the man says hoarsely. "We've been looking for you. Come back. Our camp's not far."

Tony brandishes the knife more wildly. "I have no idea what the fuck you're talking about, or who the fuck you are."

Honey, I Can See The Stars
Steve doesn't really pay attention to what he wears beyond it- reasonably- fitting. The most he'd ever cared about anything remotely related was his uniform, which, beyond the stylistic, was pretty necessary. But now his suit comes from a lab far more advanced than the basement of a Brooklyn antique shop, and the only decision he really gets to make is if his pants are too tight. (They were, but he doesn't really think they changed them. He doesn't know why, but he thinks that might have been on purpose.) That being said, he doesn't know what he's done to deserve the double take Tony gives him as he walks in the room.

"Okay, I'm taking you to my tailor." Tony pronounces seriously, staring at Steve over a pair of red-tinted sunglasses. Steve looks down, adjusting his t-shirt, which was, admittedly maybe a little threadbare. He'd borrowed the jeans from Thor, who had, Steve thought, borrowed them from Jane, who had borrowed them from a previous flame.

But the Heart
"Okay. So. Kids. It can't be too hard, right? People dumber than us raise kids all the time. Not much to them. Just feed them, water them, distract them with shiny things and make sure they aren't unsupervised for too long. Speaking of which, how long has tiny-spawn been alone in your kitchen?"

Homefront
Steve Rogers is a capable leader, a kind and cheerful man, a good friend, a strong role model, and a loyal soldier. He's also teetering on the edge of suicide.
