Fandom: Avengers
Pairing: Steve/Tony
Summary: The doctor pulled out the teacher’s chair and sat across from Steve, his hands folded and his face solemn and kindly. “It happens once in a while,” he said. His voice was soft and gentle, and irrationally, it made Steve angry. Such ugly news ought to be delivered in a more fitting tone. “The most likely cause is that your intended mate died before you were born or shortly after they were born, before the bond had time to fully form. It’s called a Type C or a Type–”

Steve wasn’t interested in the terminology. “Is that why I’m… like this?” He gestured down at his frail, sickly body.

“Probably,” the doctor said. “There are some further tests we can give you, down at the hospital, to determine–”

“Why bother?” Steve growled, slumping back in his chair and crossing his arms. “My mate is dead and no one else is going to want me, not like this.” Tears stung his eyes and he blinked them back furiously.

“It’s also possible, though less likely, that you’re a Type A — firstborn of the pairing — but that your mate has simply not yet been born,” the doctor said.

Notes: This was recorded the weekend Age of Ultron came out in North America but has been languishing on our hard drives for forever while we waited to finish it up.

Hello! I'm Paraka and I've been floating around fandom since 2003. You can find me being fannish all over the place but these days mostly on AO3, and a little bit on Twitter (though that seems to be mostly politics these days).

All my fannish works are theoretically supposed to be hosted here, though sometimes I fall behind, so AO3 might be the most up to date.
