    Summary

    Tony knows what the team really thinks of him. It's a delicate balance: they tolerate him because of his money and his toys, and he gets to stay on the team and fight with them. He's okay with that. So long as he hides the fact that Steve's and Bucky's names are written on his skin in the most embarrassing act of one-sided love affection ever, everything will be fine.

    It just figures that a fantastically stupid villain, a kidnapping plot and a video camera will bring Tony's well-kept secret out into the open.

    Summary

    A sentinel could spend most of their early years without a guide. By their mid-thirties if a sentinel had yet to form a bond with a guide their senses would start to lose focus and precision until they became overwhelmed and went insane.

    Tony was in his forties and the bond he had was a thin string that could be snapped with just one word, and it was the only reason why Tony wasn’t locked up in an asylum for sentinels.

    Even with his bond though, Tony was deteriorating, unable to control his senses and becoming overprotective of his teammates.

    If he didn't increase the strength of his current bond or find a new guide who he could bond better with then he would be locked up for life.

    Too bad Starks have a history of having trouble bonding, and Tony's already tried every technique to strengthen his bond with his guide.

    Oh, and let's not forget his guide was none other than Mr. Perfect himself: Steve Rogers.

    So really? Tony was screwed unless those bonding techniques started working, because who the hell else could bond with him and do it better than Mr. Perfect?

    Summary

    The doctor pulled out the teacher's chair and sat across from Steve, his hands folded and his face solemn and kindly. "It happens once in a while," he said. His voice was soft and gentle, and irrationally, it made Steve angry. Such ugly news ought to be delivered in a more fitting tone. "The most likely cause is that your intended mate died before you were born or shortly after they were born, before the bond had time to fully form. It's called a Type C or a Type--"

    Steve wasn't interested in the terminology. "Is that why I'm... like this?" He gestured down at his frail, sickly body.

    "Probably," the doctor said. "There are some further tests we can give you, down at the hospital, to determine--"

    "Why bother?" Steve growled, slumping back in his chair and crossing his arms. "My mate is dead and no one else is going to want me, not like this." Tears stung his eyes and he blinked them back furiously.

    "It's also possible, though less likely, that you're a Type A -- firstborn of the pairing -- but that your mate has simply not yet been born," the doctor said.

    Summary

    “You’ve got war in your heart boy,” Howard sneers, “don’t ever try and pretend to be anything but what you are.”

    Tony feels the familiar burn of a flower mark being etched into his skin but he doesn’t look, doesn’t try and check to see what it is. Instead he keeps his eyes on Howard and his hands cupped around his bleeding mouth and nose.

    Summary

    /Old man/Tony thinks, resigned. /This could be my sea. Space, the final frontier./

    Steve thinks as hard as he can: come home.

    /Not like anyone's waiting for me back on earth, anyways./

    Steve puts his fist through a wall.
