Mad as a Hatter
"And now you work with his son," Ann Curry says, meaning Tony, and Steve’s face completely changes. Tony feels like he can’t breathe for a second, momentarily undone by the knowledge that it’s him making Steve look like that, him.
Steve spends a minute or two stroking Tony’s ego (which most people would argue doesn’t need stroking again, ever, for the rest of his life), gushing about how brilliant Tony is and how much he’s done for the team, and Steve in particular, and what a great guy he is, how much Steve enjoys working with him. As Tony takes in the bashful smile, the “aw shucks” downcast eyes, he’s pretty certain that everyone watching has just figured out that Captain America is fucking Iron Man.
And if they haven’t, all it would take is one look at Steve’s naked back, right between his shoulder blades, where he often has a fading red mark that’s—thanks to his accelerated healing—not quite dark enough to be called a bruise. Anyone who sees it for two seconds would recognize that it’s the exact size and shape of an arc reactor.
