Title: A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to Oblivion
Authors: Sabrecmc
Fandom: Marvel, Iron Man, Captain America
Length: 66,586
Pairing: Tony Stark/Steven Rogers

Summary:
“Mr….Mr. Stark?” the man asked, shaking his head as if to clear it, grip convulsing spasmodically on Tony’s hand.

“That’s me,” Tony responded gruffly. Of course the man recognized him. His face had been everywhere before the whole Iron Man thing and now…well, now…so yeah, totally understandable. Guy was probably thinking of his lawyer’s speed dial number. “Look, ambulance is on its way, okay, so just sit tight. You’re going to be fine.”

“I—I think I missed my date,” the blond man said. And promptly passed out.

Or, how Tony accidentally kidnapped Captain America and then wanted to keep him.

Why You Should Read This:
This is a favourite pairing of mine. Sabrecmc style of writing of Tony’s inner dialogue is hilarious, snarky and self examining. It’s awful sweet seeing Tony’s initial attraction turns into a man crush to the scariness of the L word. The writer captures the characters brilliantly especially because it is Tony led. This story starts before the Avengers film linking it in later chapters which I found pretty cool as it was seamlessly done.
