When Stephen gets invited to go back and give the speech he was meant to before his accident, he’s touched, excited but also conflicted. His ex-boyfriend, Nicodemus West will also be in attendance and Stephen doesn’t want to go to the event and give him the satisfaction of knowing Stephen is still single, that he still hasn’t found anyone to love.
Thankfully, his close friend Tony Stark is willing to act as his boyfriend for the night, allowing Stephen to save face. What Stephen didn’t realise was just how easy pretence could morph into reality. Spending the evening with Tony as his boyfriend makes the sorcerer wish he could be for real.
As he told Tony before, he’d never experienced the fabled butterflies in the stomach, the world slowing around him, any of that romantic cliché crap that usually sprang from first encounters.
Looking at Tony waiting for him…
The imaginary butterflies flew into him, winding him, making the world stop on its axis.
