    Summary

    I liked you more before you met the Avengers.

     

     

     

    It's an offhand comment that Tony wasn't sure he was actually meant to hear. But he did and he doesn't know what it means. Lucky for him, Rhodey's got an answer for him.

    Summary

    The world keeps pushing him, demanding, because what he did wasn't enough. Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, but that wasn't enough, wasn't ever enough.

    Tony Stark was tired. But he had a planet to protect, even if everyone laughed at him whenever the prospect of alien invasions was brought up. He could count on one hand how many people he could trust, which was disheartening but then, what else was new?

     

    Or,

     

    In which Tony does not, in fact, intend to take over the world.

    ...unfortunately, everyone else missed that particular memo.

     

    [gradual divergence from canon, starting at the end of Iron Man 3. In which it's Tony's self-awareness, rather than his support system, that becomes a cryptid sometime during Phase II.]

    Summary

    Bucky doesn't understand why no one ever says anything about Tony's PTSD.
    A year after they have all come back, after they all hugged and made up, Tony is still jumping anytime someone speaks to him. His hands shake when Steve raises his voice. All he does is work and drink and apologize for being around.
    And nobody notices except Bucky, because he is looking. Constantly. Watching Tony as he goes through his day to day.
    Bucky looks and LOOKS, until he is having a hard time even wanting to look away from short spiky hair that begs to be mussed, deep brown eyes that always looks so sad, and perfect lips that Bucky just wants to kiss forever.
    Bucky looks for so long that now all he wants to do is touch and hold and fix everything. But Tony can barely be in the same room as Bucky, cant even look him in the eye.
    So Bucky doesn't know what to do about Tony, but he is determined to do something.
    Because all he wants is to look at Tony, and see Tony looking back with a smile.
