    Summary

    “I know school’s a lot, but try to take it easy, okay?” Tony says gently. “You’re allowed to cut back a little.”

    Peter’s first instinct is to argue. No, I’m not, he thinks. Not when people’s lives are on the line. Not when I have to get good grades to go to a good school. Not when there are so many people I might let down. Instead, he says, “I know. I will if it gets too much.” Because that’s what a recovering person would say.

    And he’s supposed to be better.

    or

    Relapse is part of recovery. Peter learns this the hard way. Luckily, he's got a good team of people on his side. Tony Stark is one of them.

    Summary

    A few years after CA:CW, things are almost back to normal. Team Cap is back stateside, they've rejoined the Avengers, and they're all working with one another – even if it's sometimes not all that comfortably. Steve and Tony aren't back together, but at least they can be in the same room at the same time without it ending in a fight. Most days.

    A rough mission puts Steve in a bad place, and Tony – who's in a bad place of his own – goes to check on him. Steve needs to feel something that isn't pain, and Tony needs to give him that.

    Summary

    The first time Ben Parker meets Tony Stark, he punches him square in the face.

    Tony bites back a curse and ignores the way his eyes water as he looks back up at the man. Ben’s not angry, which is part of the reason the punch took him by surprise. They’re lucky the door is closed, or Happy would have tackled him to the ground.

    “Did that make you feel better?” Tony asks, the sarcasm in his tone biting, but Ben takes it as a serious question.

    “No.” If Tony didn’t know any better, he’d say the man almost cracks a smile. It’s hard to tell, and Tony’s never met a man he can’t read, but Ben doesn’t look angry (seriously, why doesn’t he look angry?), even though that punch felt angry. “...Maybe a little.”

    ***

    Or, May dies instead of Ben. We’ve seen Ben’s legacy – but what about May’s?

    Losing a mother is something different from losing a father, but either way, it hurts.

    Summary

    “I’d be happy to show you a good time,” Tony said, smiling a little obscurely, Steve thought, as if to himself, but still with that warm, knowing look, affectionate and oddly fond, “any time you want.”

    Steve Rogers goes to Tony Stark's birthday party. Things progress from there, with a lot of flirtiness leading to propositions, and propositions leading to, well, what comes next, and Steve isn't even sure what he wants after that.

    Set in the Marvel Ultimate Universe, and written for the 2014 Cap_Ironman Reverse Big Bang. Art by wiredoll, here.
