Post-war hurt!tony and Steve taking care of him recs????? Plsplspls
I don’t know a whole lot of post-war hurt!Tony fics. Here are some with some good hurt/comfort though:
SPEAKING OF HURT, COMMENT AND KUDO THESE FICS OR THERE WILL BE BLOOD.
I’m Here, Sweetheart by DaftPunk_DeLorean:
When Tony gets grievously injured at a press conference, Steve just about loses his mind with worry. And not only because they are best friends, or teammates, or colleagues. No one could blame Steve for his reaction, knowing that he and Tony were married. The problem was, no one knew.
Blow Out by xaritomene: Written for this prompt on the Avengers kinkmeme (and first posted there): “The Avengers are trapped somewhere. A forest, a cave, whatever. Tony, who is hurt, traumatized, his arc reactor running low, MacGyvers some awesome shit and saves the day. The Avengers can only watch in awe.“The Avengers are stuck in a cave, and Tony, despite being essentially incapacitated by the loss of his suit, has a working plan to deal with this shit. So what if his team thinks he’s only useful in the suit? And so what that they’re not in life-threatening danger, the kind that Loki strews around himself like confetti? Tony is going to get them out of there by hook or by crook, because goddammit he hates caves, and no one else is coming up with a better plan. They’re not in danger now, but time is running out. And if Tony has to damage himself to pull off his plan, well, them’s the breaks.Incidentally, Steve doesn’t like it when Tony’s damaged.(Or: Stand back! Tony Stark’s about to try science. Dangerous, self-sacrificing science.)
Steve has to take care of Tony when Extremis gets compromised.
Formerly Known As by winterstar:
Tony and Steve are stranded in a cave, or are they?
Shortly after Tony gets Extremis, he and Steve end up stranded in the Savage Land, with Extremis mysteriously not functioning and Tony barely functioning, either. Established relationship, set early in the first New Avengers run. This was inspired by a piece of art by Shaliara.
The Wasn’t What the Brochure Promised by kahn: “Do you think this is still a training exercise, or did we just get our asses handed to us by actual bad guys?” asked Clint.Tony, Steve, Clint and Bruce spend quality time together in a cave. Tony does not build another arc reactor (even if he sort of needs one). Steve is all Protective Leader. Clint is terrifyingly good with a knife. Bruce bleeds and snarks. There is banter and embarassing amounts of schmoop and the boys get very touchy-feely.
Steve and Tony haven’t been together long–they just started dating after putting the team back together in the form of the New Avengers. When the Red Skull finds out about their relationship, though, he takes it personally. Aiming to make an example of them and insulted by Steve taking up with a man, he takes them prisoner, and proceeds to try and break them. It doesn’t exactly go as planned. Set directly after the beginning of the first (2004) New Avengers series and the formation of the new team.
Tony gets hurt and Steve gets cranky. But he still takes care of him.
Syzygy by Mizzy (Kludged Together Remix):
When Tony Stark cut Steve Rogers’ morning jog short to join him on a reconnaissance mission off the East Coast, Tony sure wasn’t expecting to end up stuck on a life raft in the middle of the ocean, Steve’s hand knuckle-deep in his chest. (Steve’s POV)
When he cut his morning jog short to join Tony Stark on a reconnaissance mission off the East Coast, Steve sure wasn’t expecting to end up stuck on a life raft in the middle of the ocean, his hand knuckle-deep in Stark’s chest.
I have also written this. Sort of. Both are hurt, but Steve’s a self-sacrificing dork:
