    Summary

    Months after the Avengers' dispute in Germany, the team returns to the US and moves back into the tower. As always, everyone pretends that nothing happened. Tony is just fine with this. He's used to pretending, and he'll be damned if he lets any of them see him flinch.

    Tony's the bad guy, after all. He's used to it. He's fine with it. He's good at it.

    Only now, there's something far worse loitering around the tower - The Winter Soldier. No one notices the guy at first, but when they do, Tony figures that he should have the solder's back.

    Birds of a feather should flock together, and the bad guys should start a book club.

    Summary

    Constellations wheel around in Tony’s mind at night, illuminating his sleep with the beauty of a supernova, the terrible gaping hunger of black holes, the whimpering cry of a nebula as it births new stars into creation.

    All of Space laid out for him to marvel at.

    Tony learns and learns and learns and then he creeps downstairs and babbles relentlessly to his first and only friend.

    All the while the Cube hums, just a bit smug, just a bit loving, and shows him more.

    Summary

    “Daddy's not mad, sweetheart, all this change can be hard on babies bodies. We're going to help you go potty.”

    Tony didn't like the sound of that, hell, he barely liked the sound of 'potty' even as his belly ached for relief from the days of being backed up from the combination of stubbornness – he refused to use the diaper his former comrade turned captor had forced him into – and the sickening start of caffeine withdrawal. It had started off as simple defiance, refusing to let Rogers see him humiliate himself like that...

    Summary

    Didn’t notice. Right. Sure. Two brilliant minds, two super spies, and a god didn’t notice when the chattiest man they knew stopped making sound. They just seemed happier than before. Brighter and more cheerful than before. They just seemed like they were more comfortable with him around when he was stone silent.

    Fuck it.

    He knew they noticed.

    And he knew they liked him better this way.

    Summary

    “You let him get away, didn’t you?” Tony looks away but keeps his silence, jaw clenching. Ross grabs his jaw and makes him look him in the eyes. “Tell me where he is, Tony.”

    Tony spits to the side, not breaking eye contact. “Go to hell,” he says.

    Or: Tony, even after everything, would still protect Steve with every bone in his body.
