Sleep-Deprived Tony

Sleep-Deprived Tony

this blog is amazing and i absolutely love how you go out of your way to do this. thanks so much! i’ll also apologize for this imposition, but do you have any sleep deprived Tony recs?

Everyone needs to nap, and Tony probably most of all, right?  Here are some sleep deprived Tony recs to keep you awake! These often feature both of them having sleep issues and sort of bonding over that, so you’ll find sleep deprived Steve, too.

Tony would love to sleep. He really would. But his body’s just not letting him.

Slumber by @cnjrupasmle: “‘Especially Steve,’ was probably more like it.
Semantics, the mechanic decided.  He had wanted world peace, created a
killer robot that did its damnedest to wipe out the human race, and had
been just as upset with himself as his teammates had been with him.  It
was simple when you broke it down, really.Either way, it didn’t make sharing a bed with Steve Rogers any easier while they were laying low at Clint’s farm.”Tony
can’t sleep.  It seems like Cap can’t either, so they become insomniacs
together.  That is, until they find a solution to their problem.  Tony
has to figure out what it all means and what he wants, but he never can
seem to keep from getting in his own way.

Mission Objective: Sleepy Stark by Iron_George:
“Imagine your OTP looking up at the stars. Person A is really
enthusiastic, pointing out the constellations and person B just falls
asleep to their voice.”

Insomnia (A Softer Approach Remix) by @laireshi:
Tony hasn’t slept in days, and he wants to cry or scream or beg someone
to punch him and knock him out, and if Steve says they’re friends—well,
Tony doesn’t have the energy to argue against something he wants quite
so desperately.

Voyeur by ironman:
Tony Stark doesn’t sleep. And that’s not a prelude to some stupid
switched around Chuck Norris joke. It’s the truth – Tony Stark doesn’t
sleep. He works, drinks coffee, works some more, listens to loud rock
music, and drinks some more coffee. He calls it insomnia, but any normal
person would know to call it insanity.
