It was nothing like this when he fell for Peggy.
That had been like wading into a clear pool, creeping over him inch by inch and he’d been aware of it happening; he’d welcomed it.
This time around, it’s more like being thrown in to the deep end and being dragged under by the current.
One day Tony is just…Tony, and the next Steve is watching the smile crinkle the skin around his eyes, and the winch in Steve’s chest pulls up tight.
After that, every little thing Tony does winds Steve up.
This is so good!
I just was out in the rain waiting for the bus, couldn’t read, and I thought I wanted some H/C and so I made up this little story in my mind where Extremis is malfunctioning and they get trapped in the Savage Land somehow… D:

Inspired by a piece of art by Shaliara—she generously allowed me to write this when I told her the picture gave me ideas and also helped me out a lot with the writing itself! And thank you so much to cyborgcap for serving as my beta, as always!
