The mission was a bad idea. Tony could have told you that before he ended up on his knees.
Tony is a sub on a team of doms. Nothing particularly unusual about that. Except that Tony is keeping it together by a very thin thread and everything he's worked to keep inside for so long is unravelled by one moment and his own damn biology.

"Sometimes, Tony dreams of ash and dust. Of infinite skies and dying worlds. The feel of leather on his skin, the brush of metal on his fingers. Sometimes he see’s cruel smiles, a feral glint; the smell of cigars that burn his throat.
Recently, he dreams of yellow and blue. A shining light, luminous and uplifting. Flashes of colour on a canvas of sand and death that paint the pain away. Long and languorous, the strokes of light will chase away the shadows."
Steve leaves and Tony panics.
