    Summary

    Steve is at her door in his uniform. And okay, yeah, Darcy's had some pretty fantastic dreams that have started like this before, but usually she's not in her sushi pajama bottoms and her CLINTON '08 t-shirt, rocking hair she hasn't washed in two days that is currently doing an awesome imitation of a badly groomed poodle on top of her head.

    "Sorry, Darcy," he says quietly. "Assemble order."

    Darcy is realllll slow on the uptake at ass 'ofuckingclock in the morning, so she just kind of gapes at him like a dying trout that's been plucked out of the water. She forgot her glasses in her room, so Steve - and the rest of the world - is a bit blurry, and her brain is just not firing on all cylinders.

    "My shield," Steve says, clearly embarrassed. He doesn't have his cowl-y helmet thing on and he scratches his head and then his ear, looking anywhere but at her.

    "Ohhhhh," Darcy replies, turning around to lurch back to her bedroom like a yeti.

    --

    Seven times the Avengers' weapons have liked Darcy better (and one time the Avenger liked her even more).

    Summary

    In which:

    Darcy is lonely in London, waiting for Jane to come back from Asgard, is still unpaid, and is living off of the small retainer fee that is deposited into Jane's accounts and her perks as a sort-of Stark Industries employee. If she starts touring the labs and making friends while sneaking in for free coffee and food, well, no one has noticed yet, right?

    Steve is not lonely, he's too busy to be lonely. But he is possibly struggling to connect, and really frustrated by all this technology stuff. And if he likes having a friend who doesn't know about and tip toe around his past, or expect anything from him? Who could blame him?

    Stark Industries London yearns for the days when it was a force to reckoned with, and now it has received its first direct communication from Pepper Potts since December 28th, 2007.

    Summary

    “Why did you think I wouldn’t like you for being gay?” Steve asks gently.

    “You’re Captain America.” Eli’s got his teeth clenched and is resolutely looking ahead. “You stand for truth and justice and the American way. You stand for American morals. You stand for…” he shrugs awkwardly. “Not people like me.”

    Steve blows the air out of his cheeks slowly, trying to figure out how to keep the anger out of his voice so Eli doesn’t think it’s at him.

    Or, Steve comes to terms with his new world, and gains some children in the process.
