Younger Now Than We Were Before
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Bruce Banner/Tony Stark, Steve Rogers/Peggy Carter, Peggy Carter/Daniel Sousa
Spoilers: General spoilers for Agent Carter and Captain America: Winter Soldier.
Word Count: ~19,500
Summary: Bruce can’t allow Steve’s anguished expression to move him. “Don’t you think there are things we’d want to change, too?” he demands. (Or the one where Steve, Bruce, and Tony travel to the past and discover some interesting things about themselves and each other.)
A/N: A few things: this fic is set somewhere in the nebulous time between the fall of SHIELD and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but I’m ignoring anything in AoU that doesn’t fit with this fic. This story is brought to you by several IM conversations thomasina75
and I had while watching Agent Carter. I have tried to make it as plausible as possible without fudging too much. Finally, this fills the February hc_bingo
challenge for the following four prompts: “forced to rely on enemy/rival,” “nausea,” “comfort food or item/feeding someone,” and “WILD CARD (grief)”
For my friends who aren't into slash, the Bruce/Tony is more pre-slash or friendship than anything else.
