Description:

Steve and Tony's love for each other is used against them when the villainous Secret Empire kidnaps and brainwashes Tony, who promptly kidnaps and tortures Steve. They win free, but afterwards they have to put their lives back together -- and of course, their recovery is not easy.

Notes:

This is my entry in the Cap-IM Reverse Bang 2016, written for phoenixmetaphor's art Subjugation.

This series is set in Avengers volume 3, diverging more from canon as the story progresses. The plot of the main story is from the team formation (Avengers v3 #4) to approximately the Live Kree Or Die crossover (Avengers v3 #7), with an excursus into slightly-later Iron Man volume 3 (#24 and #25). The epilogue is set a year after the main story, surrounding the events of Red Zone (Avengers v3 #65-70).

You can probably get by without having read any of v3 at all, as most of the canon events are a background to the Steve/Tony plot, or they're redone in a fair amount of detail in the story. (But if you don't know v3, you won't know what's up with Carol until Steve does.)

Story titles in this series have been borrowed from the lyrics of Depeche Mode's album Songs of Faith and Devotion. (The main story's title is from "In Your Room" and the epilogue is from "I Feel You.") This is entirely phoenixmetaphor's fault.
