The Dead Forest - hansbekhart - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
They’ve taken down the elevated line, and without it the Bowery stretches wide and open like a razed country, smelling like nothing in particular, quiet and peaceful.

Us Ones in Between - comeswithaprice - Pacific Rim (2013) [Archive of Our Own]
He likes the pain. There’s no point in denying it. The needle touches his skin and he likes the way it feels, the scratch and burn of it - he even likes the humming noise of the Stigma Rotary. Six hours later, Trespasser is staring at him from his left thigh.

the hip and the dead - hollimichele - Captain America (2011), The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
It's little things, mostly, that give people away: the makeup, the fit of the men's uniforms, even people's posture. The women aren't wearing girdles under their dresses, most of them, so they don't hold their shoulders back and their spines straight the way they ought to. And, of course, there's a lot of tattoos and piercings, occasional flashes of unnaturally bright-colored hair. It's not home. But it's nice.

[When she asks about the other tenants in the building, the realtor just throws up his hands and says, "Look, I don't know. They're artsy types, if they live around here. You know. Hipsters."][in which Steve is secretly a hipster.]

A High and Lonesome Sound - misslucyjane - The Avengers (2012), Marvel Avengers Movies Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Steve actually likes the talking and wants it to continue, but he rolls over anyway. Tony fits their bodies together and wraps his arms around Steve's chest. Just like Bucky used to do, Steve thinks, and the old ache that will never really go away flares once more in his chest. This time, at least, it's not sharp and cold. It's more like pressing on a bruise than breaking a bone.

[Some nights, Steve still has trouble breathing.][overuse of "old man", otherwise very sweet and wonderful.]

spectrum - irnan - The Avengers (2012), Marvel Avengers Movies Universe [Archive of Our Own]
The Tower doesn’t get crowded. People are in and out of Tony’s space every single fucking day, knocking things over and changing things round, turning music up or off, watching TV, taking photos of the city from his balcony (OK, that’s just Steve), going grocery shopping, turning various kitchen appliances into Weapons Of Mass Destruction and teaching Thor poker, which he’s amused by because when Asgardians play for money they usually do so with more violence; more than one person has walked in on Tony and Pepper… being Tony and Pepper in various parts of the house. There’s a constant thrum of background noise, an underlying hum of people. [

Tony sets out to learn to play with others. Pepper enables him. The Avengers spend a lot of time pretending they’re not grateful for the chance to play back.

Except for Steve, who corners Tony in the workshop one day and actually says thank you out loud, which Tony considers the grossest violation of both Tower rules and common decency in general and won't talk to him for a week.]
