    Summary

    Tony dropped out of college to get away from his abusive father. When his longtime boyfriend reveals similar tendencies, Tony refuses to endure another moment of it, running away with nothing more than the cash in his pockets. He makes it to Virginia, where he's taken in by Bucky, a restaurant owner looking for an extra hand who's willing to be paid cash under the table.

    Bucky's been struggling for years: to keep the beachside restaurant he inherited from his parents above water (both financially and literally); to live down the fact that he's gay in a small southern town; to get over the man who's owned his heart since he was fourteen. But he's never had to struggle as hard as he is now, to keep his hands off Tony.

    Summary

    Steve grimaces. "Stark's a Guide," he says.

    "Howard?" James says, surprised - confused. He'd briefly met Howard before being permitted to bunk at the Fort. Howard had declared him stable enough for inclusion, but he'd definitely read like a mundane.

    "The son. Tony," Steve corrects.

    Summary

    Tony isn't a damsel in distress. He can rescue himself just fine. It's a bit weird when the self saving him isn't from this timeline, though.

    Or: Tony from the bad Infinity War timeline ends up rescuing himself from that cold, dark cave in Afghanistan. IM1!Tony comes to understand Happy and Rhodey's perspectives a lot better. It's the actual worst.

    "Forgive me, Sir," JARVIS intones, sounding a bit confused. "I was not aware of the intruder until this moment. Shall I inform the authorities?"

    "No. No, no, no - god no. That would be awkward to explain," Tony says, waving his AI off.

    "Come on, be nice to JARVIS," the looming armor says, mechanical, just the slightest pitch of dry reproach in the words. "He's doing his best with the half-assed programming job you did. He's barely even sophisticated enough to be security at this point.
