Murphy's Law states that if it can go wrong it will. When it rains it pours. And you know what? Murhpy was an asshole that needed to die in a fire. Just saying. Tony hated the guy even if he really wasn't all the sure that the guy was a guy or if a guy named Murphy ever existed. Did it matter? Life sucked right now. For just about everyone on the impromptu Avengers team. And being chased back to New York had to be the hardest thing in his life.

Especially when all the shit went down in DC. And he couldn't do a damn thing about it.

Sitting in front of the armor he'd built most recently, he started cataloging the pieces. The piece he'd made first when Pepper started asking questions. The piece she started yelling when she realized what he was doing. And staring down at the helmet, he felt his brow furrow as he remembered her saying she needed to leave. Get far away and she'd not called since.

Lifting his head to the rest of the armor, he mused quietly that he'd not painted it yet. Turning the helmet in his hands, he pointedly ignored the hurricane of a mess that was his lab. He ignored the broken pieces all over the floor and the shattered glass... and the bottles of alcohol he'd meant to drink but he used for target practice instead. All that looked perfect was the armor.

Natasha didn't bother coming in anymore, neither did Bruce. Jarvis stopped asking him to leave the lab... and instead had people leave food in the elevator. And right now, the music was loud enough to make his ears bleed. Well.. if he were a lesser person.

He had very options after taking down SHIELD. Steve knew what he was doing when he toppled the organization but it did present a few problems. The first being a lack of resources. He went from having one of the best intelligent networks in the world to Google.

The truth of the matter was he couldn't do this alone. He needed backup and as good as Sam was they both had limits that couldn't be overcome with strength and a soldier's skill set. He went back to New York because there was one team he was hoping he could count on.

Stark Tower was still ugly in his opinion but he had never really liked the modernist look. It was better than before with the repairs made he would admit that as he walked into the lobby and approached the front desk.

The woman looked skeptical at first when he asked to speak to Tony Stark and that he was Steve Rogers but she eventually got on her phone and made a call.

The receptionist was truly apologetic once she had permission to let him pass. Steve reassured her he understood and that she was just doing her job. He wished her a good day before he stepped onto the elevator and the doors closed without a sound.

He still missed the days when they played music.

The elevator stopped a few minutes later and a polite British voice announced him. Steve stepped out into a lab but one that was chaotic and full of what looked like half built machines, what sort of machines he couldn't tell.

"Stark, are you in here?" he asked to the mess.

From: [personal profile] vintagecaptain
The nicknames were still a thing. He shook his head a little as he started to cut a path through the debris to Tony. The man looked a little rough around the edges which was unexpected. He was used to the Tony Stark who looked put together and in control.

"Well, I just brought down a corrupt government agency which means I don't have a lot of friends in the world." He shrugged a shoulder, because clearly it was worth it. He had no doubts of that. It made things a little harder but hard work never bothered him before. "I was hoping the Avengers might lend me a hand."

He gave Stark a little half smile. "And can you call me Steve?"

vintagecaptain: ([steve] considering)
From: [personal profile] vintagecaptain
"You had your own problems to deal with." Steve had seen the news reports about Stark's disappearance and possibly being dead. It had been a shock. For some reason he had thought the man invincible or at least untouchable because of the armor and because of his strong personality. "I didn't really have time to call for backup either."

He didn't blame any of the Avengers for not helping with SHIELD. Natasha had been more than enough when he was backed into a corner. Sam had helped too. If Tony was amiable he would ask about getting Sam's wings back.

"I could use the place to stay, thanks." Trying to be out in the open right now didn't feel safe. There was no telling what Bucky did or didn't remember. Steve would be safer here and closer to resources. "I need help tracking someone and possibly getting around if we find him. I need you and your computers basically. If you don't mind."

"My own floor?" Steve had no idea what to do with that sort of space. His apartment in DC had been bigger than anything he had ever lived in before but a whole floor seemed a little excessive. Then again, Stark did excessive really well. He'd figure out what to do with that later.

He reached into his jacket and pulled out Bucky's file. He hadn't let it leave his side since Natasha gave it to him. He looked at it for just a moment and then handed it to Tony.

"HYDRA called him the Winter Soldier. I knew him as Bucky Barnes. I need to find him."

vintagecaptain: ([steve] studying)
From: [personal profile] vintagecaptain
"I'm sure it's fine." He didn't need much to be happy. Whatever Tony had provided him, it was probably fine. He couldn't imagine he'd need that much space in the first place.

The robots were interesting. Steve tried not to look like he was watching them interact but he probably wasn't being very subtle. He was fascinated by a lot of modern technology. Back in his day, robots were a dream of the future and science fiction. He wondered how advanced they were and what rules they followed. Stark seemed to treat them more like children or pets than machines.

"No, I don't mind. I've smelled worse in trenches." He honestly hadn't even noticed the smell. Stark was dirty, sure but he was clearly building. You didn't build and stay clean. "But, I'd like to get to work as soon as possible. It's important to me."

vintagecaptain: ([army] at ease)
From: [personal profile] vintagecaptain
He looked towards the voice which seemed to be coming from above him or maybe from all sides. There are no obvious speakers so he settles for the ceiling as the best bet as to where the sound is. "Thank you... Jarvis."

He glanced at Stark, "Is he a real person or a talking robot? The other ones just beep and I don't want to assume."

After Stark's little display with computers at SHIELD he trusted him when he said that the computers would be running. He certainly couldn't do it as fast and there was no storage room to break into. He had to be patient.

"You want to show me to my room? I'm curious to see what you've done with the place." So far the interior of the building met with his approval. The exterior still needed work.

The thing about living with Tony was Steve got to know the man and the more he learned the more he understood just how wrong he had been when they first met. He found Tony to be clever, slightly socially awkward and incredibly kind behind his sarcasm. Much of who he was in public was simply an act because that was how people expected him to be.

He got to know the real Tony Stark, who was someone Steve could like and respect. He also sort of like Tony but that was between him and himself. He accepted that part of himself but he wasn't going to make it Tony's problem if he wasn't like that.

Still, when insomnia struck he couldn't resist wandering down to the workshop because he knew where Tony would be. Jarvis opened the door for him when he arrived with his sketchbook under one arm and his markers under another. Art supplies were incredible these days. He loved them.

"Hey, Tony, mind turning the music down for me?"

vintagecaptain: ([steve] bashful)
From: [personal profile] vintagecaptain
"I could be talked into seeing what you've done this time." He climbed onto his standard stool and reached out to pat the nearest bot who came to say hi. They were as enthusiastic as their creator about seeing him. It was nice to be welcome like this. He felt warmth bloom in his chest, making him honestly happy.

He propped his chin on a hand, smiling at Tony with open honesty. He's always curious to see what Tony's working on. Some of his favorite moments lately were listening to Tony talk about whatever he was doing. He didn't always understand it, not being as technically minded but he got enough to realize how smart Tony is and how passionate.

The passion drew him in, made it hard to look away from Tony when he started talking.

Steve straightened up to give Tony enough room to slid on to the table but he was leaning in again seconds later to see the offered piece of technology. He had been eying tablets online for awhile, thinking about trying one out but he hadn't bought one for himself.

It seemed a little ridiculous because he had a sketchbook, he really shouldn't get an electronic one. He was very tempted though. Tony made it easy to give in to temptation, especially when it was a gift and it would be rude to refuse.

"Well, where's the on button?" He turned it over in his hands, looking for the very obvious buttons that a lot of technology had these days. Then again, Tony was a little better at designing technology than most.

Once Steve figured it out he would do fine with it. He needed the time to play around with it first.

"Okay." He tapped the center of the screen twice and then said clearly and calmly. "Steve Rogers."

The screen came to life instantly because Tony made it and it was perfect. He took a moment to look it over, noting the features he could see and then flipped the screen towards Tony.

"Show me how it works?" he asked with another warm smile. He hoped to hear him talk so he could watch and listen and enjoy Tony being animated.

The tablet was amazing. Steve didn't know any of them that were capable as this one. It had everything he could ever imagine and some things he didn't think of.

As soon as Tony pressed it in his hands again he started playing with it. There was so much he wanted to try and it was impossible to resist.

When he looked up and noticed Tony so close he stopped, his hand going still in the middle of the sketch.

"I, uh, well, it's not... they're just blue?" He felt himself blush as he stammered and quickly dropped his eyes again. What did he say to that? He had no idea. Even if Tony had been a dame he wouldn't have known how to respond. He got tongue tied and couldn't help it.

Date: 2014-06-05 01:03 am (UTC)
vintagecaptain: ([army] skeptical)
From: [personal profile] vintagecaptain
If he did talk pigments Steve might have a heart attack. Tony was already making his heart flutter being so close and so complimentary.

"You don't have to flatter me," he said, unsure of what else he should say. Tony is being so sweet, so kind and flirty and Steve felt tongue tied and clumsy.

"You do so much for me already."
