It's of our dweebs in the 1940's; Tony hanging with the Howling Commandos or in the lab or DANCING WITH GIRLS (or guys) FLIPPING THEM (or being flipped, whatever.) Steve and Tony being reckless and Bucky going after them just like "guys no. Put down that explosive Tony. Steve don't you dare!" And Peggy!!! Tony would love Peggy. <3 Much love.
I have actual headcanons for Tony and Peggy - not Peggy the Poodle, the real life Peggy. ;) Because he knew her. Because Tony Feels. Just because.
So I thought about how to deal with there being both Tony and Howard in this, because there’s a couple ways to go with this - either they’re cousins or I up Howard’s age and lower Tony’s - and then if they’d both be around or I just shunt Howard off somewhere. Hope what I went with works okay.
"Howard, I was wondering if-" Steve looked up, froze. "You’re not Howard."
