    Summary

    'You're Captain America,' Clint tells him. 'Saving children is definitely your job.'

    'This may surprise you, but I didn't actually run into many kids in need of saving in the middle of Hydra bases,' Steve hisses at him.

    'Just be you,' Natasha tells him. 'Kids like you.'

    'Kids like Hawkeye,' Steve objects.

    'Kids like to laugh at me when I juggle knives or shoot things like a badass,' Clint grins at him. 'They think you'll keep them safe.'

    Steve does not feel trained for this.

     

    After breaking into, and destroying, an AIM base, the Avengers find a little boy.

    Summary

    Not recognizing someone was strange enough, but the longer the two men spoke with — or, more accurately at — Tony, the more convinced Steve was that the conversation was unwanted, at least on Tony’s part.

    The first clue was that Tony was actively leaning away from the men he was talking to. Steve had learned firsthand that Tony was an incredibly tactile person. When he wanted to talk to you, Tony engaged completely; he’d sling his arm around your shoulders, squeeze your arm, or drag you around as he talked, walked and usually did at least two other things. Even when he argued, Tony was often immediate and in his opponent's space; Steve knew that from experience.

    Right now? Tony was scanning the outskirts of the room rather than making eye contact with the men near him. If Steve had to guess, Tony was looking for the nearest exit.

     

    Or, the way Steve Rogers and Tony Stark became friends and then more.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers woke up to a world where everyone he loved and knew had forged on without him. But this world, it's nothing like he's used. It wants something brutal from him, something unforgiving. There are so many compromises to make. There are too many monsters behind kind smiles.

    But if it means keeping Tony safe, if it means protecting him, he's willing to do whatever it takes.

    He can't be soft.

    After all, the weak are meat; the strong do eat.
