    Summary

    Dying in a world with reincarnation is easy. Living in one is hard, because history inevitably follows you, and you can't always decide what your legacy is.

    You try to change history, but your Icarus only ever chooses the same thing he's always chosen.

    (In which Tony is Icarus and Steve is the ocean.)

    You’re always the death of him, one way or another. It doesn’t matter who plays king and who the traitor.

    Summary

    "I really shouldn’t be talking to a figment of my imagination,” Steve said. “Sam would be reading me the riot act. I can hear him now. Therapy works wonders, you know.

    “Sounds like Wilson,” Tony agreed. “And therapy does work wonders. You might want to look into it, once it becomes a thing in a couple of years.”

    “I’ll keep that in mind,” Steve said.

     

    A few years after Steve moved permanently back in time, he started having conversations with Tony again.

    “Don’t say that.”

    “Say what? Stuff you know already? If I’m your subconscious, then nothing I’m saying can possibly surprise you,” Tony said.

    “Stop,” Steve snapped. “I know I fucked up. I know this isn’t working. I know it, I think it all the time, but hearing it from you - hearing it in his voice, it’s like torture.

    Summary

    You couldn't change your past, but the desire to change it didn't leave. It was the same drive behind a genius inventing the technology to play through every turn of an unchanging memory, running daydreams into exhaustion, holding out for impossible chances.

    Steve's chance comes now, when he opens the door.

    Tony gives in easily to the pull, his arms going around his back as Steve buries his face into Tony's shoulder. Steve's never had this before, and he tightens his arms, holding Tony close. Tears seep through his closed eyes and his body trembles. This is real. This is his.

    Blessing given (and received), Steve presses the button. The suit activates with a soft hiss. Steve holds his breath.

    I love you too you know. Always have.

    What?

    The future blinks out.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    As he caresses the face of the sleeping love of his life, free from all the worries, Steve remembers the grim place he has come from.

    Tears flow on his face.

    You're five seconds away from losing him.
