    Summary

    In his head, he knew Tony was still a kid. Suffering from shell shock and whatever emotional abuse Howard had managed to put him through.

    But even with that, Tony somehow rose above it all to become extraordinary.

    He was a teammate, a genius, and a friend. He was terribly mature for his age. Tony was Iron Man, not Iron Boy.

    Despite everything, there still stood an age difference of ten or seventy-six years, depending on your calculation.

    But his heart was telling him not to listen.

    ----

    AU where Tony becomes Iron Man at 16, an Avenger at 17, and Steve's . . . infatuation at 18.

    Summary

    It’s not like Steve is starting from scratch, but nowadays Steve watches Tony almost like he’s studying him, like Tony is one of the paintings he had to write about in art school and Steve is trying to see past the paint.

    (Or, Steve and Tony find better ways to communicate.)

    Summary

    “You really should be in school, you know.”

    “Why would I be there when I could be here, solving crimes with my favourite rookie?” Tony flashes a grin, and Steve’s stomach twists like it did on the first day.

    Teenager, Steve’s mind supplies. Definitely not legal, stop doing fluttery things, stomach.
