Summary: Steve loses his memory, but he gets the feeling he’s lost a lot more. Who exactly is Tony Stark to him, and why won’t he come out of the basement?

Why You Should Read This: Steve’s memory loss in the front of the fic from an accident we’re only told about in the course of the story is in itself heartbreaking. He’s starting over again basically and it throws a whole layer of sadness and grief over his journey back to the future and life he’s been building for himself. Accepting his place in the world, with the Avengers, and his feelings for Tony takes time but it’s worth it. Great story. I highly recommend it.
