Steve without Serum
Hi! I love your work! Currently addicted to The Prize!!!!!!! I was wondering if you have any fic recs where Steve’s serum is removed and Tony has to reassure him he loves him? I desperately need some fluffy angst
Hmmm…let’s see…these aren’t all exactly what you’re describing, but I think they are close and definitely good reads!
PLEASE LEAVE A KUDOS AND COMMENT FOR YOUR AUTHORS!
It’s the morning of their honeymoon, and the absolute last thing either of them were expecting was Loki’s wedding gift. Steve is turned small, Tony is turned truthful, and everything is fluff and smut and rainbows.
An incident results in Steve reverting to his pre-serum body. It may be the worst thing that has happened to Tony Stark. Or the best.
This Has Happened Before by kamaete: Tony wakes up in the hospital and his first order of business is to flirt with his cute nurse. Steve isn’t a nurse, but he’s not quite Captain America right now either. Regardless, he is there when Tony wakes up.(Tony has temporary amnesia while in the hospital, Steve is de-serumed presumably in the same event that injured Tony.)
Ain’t No Drinking Man by archwrites:
Steve’s skinny and asthmatic again, thanks to AIM. On the plus side, he can get drunk for the first time in seventy years. On the minus side, he kissed Tony, and now he’s skinny, asthmatic, and pining for his best friend. The first two conditions may be curable. The third is giving him some trouble.
Smoke and Mirrors by Tsuki_Amano: ‘Everything special about you came out of a bottle!’Steve always assumed that the serum would be permanent. But when a unlucky encounter reverts him back to his state before he had the serum, he has to readjust to his old body.Lucky for him, Tony Stark’s always up to making sure his boyfriend feels good about himself.
Losing It All by toesohnoes:
The Avengers all lose their abilities. Tony can’t help but be distracted by Steve’s small stature.
Flawed by usedupshiver: “There was some pretty nasty bruising and they have no way of knowing what the removal of the serum might do to you on a cellular level and -””Tony, shut up.” There was something gritty and standoffish about this version of Steve that Tony wasn’t familiar with. The prickly aura of a man with too much to prove. ”Look at me. I’m the poster boy for ‘something wrong’.“
Tony and Happy are having lunch when a camera shutter clicks behind him. The photographer behind the lens might be hundred-ish pounds of attitude balled up in a feisty blond package that only goes up to Tony’s chin, but there’s something about that defiant look that Tony finds intriguing. (not de-serumed, but very good skinny!Steve)
It’s Not the Size of the Boat (It’s the Motion of the Ocean) by Renai_chan:
Steve gets temporarily de-serumed, but that doesn’t mean he can’t still top the heck out of his boyfriend.
It’s Not the Size of the Boat (its the Motion of the Ocean) by someidiothasice (yes, same title as the above): “This isn’t a bad thing.“Steve gaped at Tony. He deliberately looked down at his once-again scrawny body and back up at him. “Look at me. Loki turned me back into a weakling. With asthma. There is no way that Fury will ever let me be Captain America again. Not like this. And that was the last thing from my past that I had to hold onto. How can this possibly not be a bad thing?”
De-Serumed Steve + Protective!Tony by sabrecmc: exactly what it says
When Project Rebirth fails, leaving the super-soldier serum inert in his veins, Steve Rogers is forced to bid goodbye to his dream of defending his country – at least, in the way he’d always envisioned it. But his prospects in that regard aren’t entirely bleak: he takes a job as chronicler for Tony Stark, the former Marvels adventurer who now serves his country in his typical unorthodox style, hunting down mystical relics before the Nazis can find them. At Tony’s side in the jungles of Peru, Steve discovers that the serum works after all – but it works in ways he could never have imagined.
