    Summary

    The world keeps pushing him, demanding, because what he did wasn't ever enough. Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, but that wasn't enough, wasn't ever enough.

    Tony Stark was tired. But he had a planet to protect, even if everyone laughed at him whenever the prospect of alien invasions was brought up. He could count on one hand how many people he could trust, which was disheartening but then, what else was new?

     

    Or,

     

    In which Tony does not, in fact, intend to take over the world.

    ...unfortunately, everyone else missed that particular memo.

     

    [gradual divergence from canon, starting at the end of Iron Man 3. In which it's Tony's self-awareness, rather than his support system and/or self-confidence, that becomes a cryptid sometime during Phase II.]

    Summary

    Being alone isn't something new to Tony Stark - it's been a major life theme, really. But there'd always been someone, even if he'd taken them for granted before losing them. There'd always been someone, or in the past several years there'd always been JARVIS. Then Ultron happened and J was... it was Tony's fault, he knew that. Rhodey is with the Avengers who are not with Tony, and he and Pepper have been over longer than anyone else knew, and he was alone. Alone and stuck like never before, drifting through the tower he'd wanted to make a home.

    When Steve comes back - in a very unexpected, dramatic fashion - Tony thinks it might be nice to not be alone for just a little while. But Steve's not himself, and no one else on his former team wants to admit it, which is... it's fine. He can handle this without them. Because it's definitely Steve Rogers in his home, looking all small and adorable, stirring up all kinds of feelings that Tony can totally handle by ignoring them altogether. It's only Steven Grant Rogers, dammit, even if Steve doesn't think so and... wait.

    Multiverse. Right.

    God, he doesn't have the energy for this.
