    Summary

    Anthony Edward Stark is born as an explosion— destructive and wild eyed, his hair soot dark and round cheeks ruddy with exertion.

    Maria screams through his entire birth, loud and inconsolable while Howard sits at a desk half a city away, unknowing and uncaring.

    The world keeps spinning even as the stars sing.

    Anthony takes his first breath and the universe hums.

    Summary

    When Steve’s pockets vibrated, he fumbled to reach it at a speed he had never adopted, even in battles where every second counted. Battles were life and death, not so much about skill as about luck; Steve always knew this. Knew that if he was meant to die, he would, his speed or agility be damned.

    But there was another thing Steve had realised, albeit late. He had realised that there was a difference between life and living. There was a difference between happiness and contentment. A difference between pain and strength. Steve knew this, had realised it as he dropped his shield on the once white snow, now tainted with the crimson colour of himself and his two friends, mixed with pain and loss and betrayal.

    (Steve drew strength from Bucky’s companionship, but he lamented loss from Tony’s hatred.)

    Or: Steve pines, Tony weeps and somehow in this messed up process, they begin to heal.

    Summary

    Looking back on it, there are several things that should have tipped Steve off that today was his Birthday. (Starting with the fact that it's suddenly clear Tony engineered every one of them.)

    Summary

    But he could understand enough, in that moment, to realise a fundamental truth.

     

     

    No matter how many circuit boards he made, no matter how much he polished:

     

    His Father never did, and never will, want him.

     

     

    Tony Stark has spent his entire life polishing, trying to become something better than he is. Those that love him can only follow him on his journey to greatness, and more aptly, his journey towards happiness (beginning with a supersoldier and a mismatched team).
