    Summary

    “Captain America represents the values of our country. The recent allegations about his sexuality are specious and designed to smear an American icon. Captain Rogers regularly attends the Church of Saint Agnes and invites the citizens of New York to attend worship with him this Sunday, April 14th. God bless America.”

     

    Nobody was ever going to know. Steve would be a good husband, a good father, and he’d never give in to sin and touch another man.

    But Steve makes two mistakes, one after the other: he leaves two words out of the Pledge of Allegiance, and he doesn’t notice a camera flash among the strobe lights of a dark club, because he’s dancing with his clumsy hands on Tony’s hips.

    Summary

    Tony asks if there’s anything he missed while he was away - away, he says, because it’s easier than saying hey did anything interesting go down while I was kidnapped and getting tortured in a cave - and Rhodey hesitates before saying no.

    (Or, an Iron Man AU where Steve is defrosted while Tony is in Afghanistan.)

    Summary

    Steve waits, knowing that sooner or later he’ll catch Stark’s attention; there’s a reason he came to this party deliberately dressed down, wearing a brown leather jacket. And Stark loves his drink so, eventually, he’ll make his way over to Steve at the bar.

     

    That moment arrives almost two hours after Stark’s arrival. Stark’s a ways away but he stops right before he sips his drink, ice cubes clinking against the glass. Dark eyes rake over Steve, taking in the tailored pants, button-down shirt, and the leather jacket. There’s keen interest and curiosity burning in Stark’s eyes. It feels like the first genuine emotion Steve’s seen on the man tonight.

     

    Gotcha, Steve thinks with a smug smile as Stark downs his drink and strides over.

    --

    Steve Rogers came out of the ice somewhere in 2009 but he didn't pick up the Captain America mantle again. Instead, he chooses to become "Nomad," an agent for hire in one corner of the dark net. Then things get interesting when someone hires him to steal plans for something called an "arc reactor" from the recently rescued Tony Stark. Steve expects this to be an easy job but little does he realize, this whole life is about to change.

    Summary

    “Didn’t mean to wake you up,” Steve whispers, hand caressing Tony’s hair, and Tony doesn’t get it, because, honestly, he’s totally okay with being woken up with kisses. In fact, if Steve keeps them on the area including his forehead and the top of his head, Tony is pretty sure he can easily drift back to sleep again, and he’ll probably have nice dreams. “Sorry.”

    He raises his hand to grab at Steve’s shirt and pull him closer to test that theory – which, come to think of it, Steve should already be close, what is up with that? – but tragically, Steve pulls away, and after a few seconds of waiting Tony realizes he isn’t coming back.

    -

    Steve always wakes up at an ungodly hour. Tony is deeply against that.
