Steve takes things like personal responsibility and respect seriously. Tony’s got people he pays to take care of that kind of thing, and anyway, he’s pretty sure that he’s going to die of some exotic disease in his workshop, because Dummy’s still a little spotty about what is ‘clean’ enough to put on an open wound. The rest of the Avengers are in this for personal gain, except for Clint, he just enjoys being a dick.

And some things shouldn’t be a chore.

Why You Should Read This:

You should read this first, because it explains so much about the characters- but you should also read ANYTHING by this author. Her writing is hilarious and heartbreaking in turns. Steve is just trying to make Tony feel better. Tony just feels like a burden. Somewhere along they way they fall in love. The last story isn’t finished. There’s one chapter left, but the author has promised it will be up soon. I can’t wait!  You can also go to her tumblr to get fic updates and read WIPS.
