I have no idea where this came from, but.
I want fic where Tony’s a- or demisexual. He still sleeps with every busty, blonde, Vanity Fair reporter that smiles at him, but it’s because it’s expected.
He’s the rich, genius, party boy so of course he’s a playboy.
Of course he sleeps around.
Why wouldn’t Tony Stark have some of that.
Only he really doesn’t like sex.
Then Steve and Tony’s really close, really awesome friendship turns into a bit more and then a lot more, and Tony’s relieved, whew, 40s mentality, he’s safe, doesn’t have to have sex.
Only Steve’s been told that it’s normal for people to fuck like crazy before marriage now and he makes a move. And Tony- not wanting to disappoint Steve, wanting to give everything to Steve- goes along with it.
And their relationship starts to suffer as Tony gradually starts to resent the sex (he doesn’t hate it, not with Steve, he just wishes they didn’t have to have so much of it) and then pulls away, finds other things to do, locks himself in his lab.
I want this so bad I can taste the bitter ache it’s leaving in my heart.
