It’s Tony who suggests they keep it quiet.

They’re lying in Steve’s bed because when he’d finally decided to hell with it, he’d felt more comfortable being somewhere familiar his first time. It made him feel more like they were on even ground.

As it turned out, he didn’t really need to worry about that because merely being Steve Rogers seemed to short out something in Tony’s brain. He’d been just as fumbling and nervous as Steve had. There had been a little awkwardness, a lot of laughter, and then a hearty helping of pure pleasure.

I’m not ashamed of you,” Tony goes on to explain, chin propped in the corner of his elbow and his fingers drawing idle equations on Steve’s shoulder.

Steve laughs at the very idea of that.

And it’s not that I don’t want everyone in the universe to know that I was the lucky man who got to chaperone Captain America’s first ride at the rodeo—”

Chaperone? Ugh, Tony.”

Tony grins and flicks Steve’s nipple with his thumb. “Look, I just want you to be able to enjoy things for awhile before other people start shoving their opinions down your throat. You should get that chance. God knows I never did.”

I don’t care what anyone says,” Steve tells him and lifts his head so that he can press a kiss to the ticklish spot near the hook of Tony’s jaw that makes him grin stupidly and pull his neck in like a turtle. “But if you want to hold off, that’s fine with me.”

Cool,” Tony says, and then they’re kissing again.

-

Steve tries not to change his habits where Tony is concerned—he tries not to seek him out when he wouldn’t have before, to sit too close, or talk too much—but he can’t really remember what he did before, so he just goes with it.

Tony is his best friend, if anyone asks.

Tony seems entirely the same, except whenever they’re alone for two seconds, his hands invariably find themselves on Steve’s body. He hooks his fingers in Steve’s pants after a briefing when the room has emptied out and he presses a kiss to the back of his neck; when he wanders into the kitchen at 2 AM and finds Steve sitting with a cup of cocoa, he curls a hand around his neck and kisses his mouth; during movie night, he tucks his toes under Steve’s thigh and kisses his shoulders when they go to the kitchen to bring back snacks for the group.

Steve is deliriously happy.

It’s like a game, meeting each other in the halls and kissing until they’re both breathless, then darting apart and hurrying in opposite directions at the sound of approaching footsteps.

They’re more careful in public, but Steve finds himself staring at his phone and smiling more often than he used to.

Apparently he’s doing that a lot more in general—smiling that is.

That is one thing people notice.

They ask him who the lucky girl is and Steve just shakes his head. “It’s rude to assume it’s a lady, isn’t it?”

Ha, called it!” Clint crows at Natasha and she pouts for the rest of the meal.

Maybe we just make him sooo happy,” Tony says, around a mouthful of submarine sandwich.

Steve covers his grin with a fist pressed into his cheek and his face tilted toward the table.

-

Sneaking around is fun.

Tony loves the exclusivity of it. Keeping it from their friends and the press and even Fury means that Steve is all his. At least, when they’re alone anyway.

He likes the way he aches for Steve when he’s not around. Hell, even when he is around, but Sam’s sitting at the table talking about the perfect parfait or something. Tony sneaks glances at Steve and reaches out under the table with a foot to nudge Steve’s. He loves the way Steve’s mouth twitches in a smile before he schools his expression and nudges back. Sometimes they just kick back and forth, playful and aimless, and other times, one of them slides a foot up further, nudging between their knees and teasing at their inner thighs until they’re both ready to lose it.

Tony will excuse himself to go down to the lab and when Steve’s held out as long as he can, he’ll make his way down, too. Then they make out on the couch in the corner like teenagers, or, on one memorable occasion, swap orgasms in the back behind the piles of scrap DUM-E likes to collect.

Steve really doesn’t seem to mind the sneaking around either, which Tony hadn’t called. He’d expected Steve to protest because lying or whatever, but he seems to enjoy it as much as Tony does.

The occasional blind surprise date Natasha sets Steve up on throws a wrench in the works, at least until Steve gets home and kisses Tony jealousy- and sense-free. They fall into bed and spend three hours laughing about how terribly the date had gone.

-

It stops being fun when Tony realizes how hard he’s fallen.

He hadn’t expected this. Steve is amazing, he’s always known that, and he’d gone into the relationship realizing that he’d been harboring some strong feelings, but he hadn’t really expected them to last. And he’s only the second person Steve’s ever had feelings for. That didn’t add up to a happy ending.

So he’d expected it to peter out after awhile. Someone new would catch Steve’s eye and Tony would grow restless and they’d part ways friends, but no more.

Except the exact opposite seems to have happened. Tony just wants Steve more. He wants to be around him all the time, to get his opinion on everything, to argue with him at four AM about politics and to sit in the park with him on Tuesday afternoons and to wake up and pull on one of his shirts.

He doesn’t want Steve part-time anymore.

He taps at the arc reactor, and then reaches down to flick at the keys hanging out of the ignition in the Mustang the two of them are currently sitting in, six stories up from the ground. The hood is popped and Tony can see Steve looking at him in the reflection of the cherry red metal. His hand closes over the keys, stops them from swinging.

What’s bugging you, sweetheart?”

Tony’s breath sticks in his throat. Steve hardly ever uses endearments. Tony’s fingers curl into fists on his thighs and then loosen and tighten, over and over.

Tony?” he says, low and concerned.

Tony has to tell him. Maybe he’s all-in to Steve’s minimum bet, but Steve deserves to know. He swallows and his tongue catches on the roof of his desert-dry mouth.

Beside him, Steve shifts, the leather scraping under his jeans.

Steve,” he croaks, and his voice is shaking, just a little. He forces himself to look up, into Steve’s eyes. “I don’t want to hide this anymore.”

He makes a weak gesture between the two of them.

Steve stares at him a moment longer, then he’s reaching over Tony to the seat controls, sliding it back as far as it will go. “Yeah,” he breathes into Tony’s ear as he climbs over the gearshift to straddle him and Tony’s breath leaves him in a rush. “Me neither.”

They both leave hickeys, dark, wine-red starbursts on each of their necks and when they go up for dinner, their hands stay clasped tight together.

Tony wears Steve’s shirt and he grins like a fool through it all.

thank you so much, i hope you enjoy!!!!

Here is a Science fair project presented by a girl in a secondary school in Sussex . In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her class mates a number of times and had the same result.
It has been known for some years that the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about, it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it.
Microwaves don’t work different ways on different substances. Whatever you put into the microwave suffers the same destructive process. Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster. This movement causes friction which denatures the original make-up of the substance. It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.
So the body wraps it in fat cells to protect itself from the dead food or it eliminates it fast. Think of all the Mothers heating up milk in these ‘Safe’ appliances. What about the nurse in Canada that warmed up blood for a transfusion patient and accidentally killed him when the blood went in dead. But the makers say it’s safe. But proof is in the pictures of living plants dying!

NO, YOU PIG-IGNORANT ASSWIPES.
SOME KID’S CLASS PROJECT IS NOT REAL SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH. YOU’VE HEARD OF “DOUBLE BLIND”, RIGHT? CALL ME WHEN IT’S PUBLISHED IN NATURE.

the structure or energy of the water

what the fuck does that even mean you realize that a water molecule is made up of three fucking atoms and if you rearrange it it isn’t water anymore and you would fucking notice

the problem with microwaved anything is not the radiation people used to worry about

Here is a handy diagram I drew of all the different types of radiation:

Microwaves != nuclear reactors, so calm your tits.

it’s how it corrupts the DNA in the food so the body can not recognize it

…do you understand what DNA is and how eating works? DNA is a jumble of protein in the middle of each cell and it tells the cells in that particular organism how to make more cells. Your body does not care about whether your food has any DNA in it or not. The chemicals it cares about are things like vitamins and sugars, as well as inorganic shit like salt.
(You can denature DNA by heating it or using chemicals like urea. It is like what happens when you fry an egg, which is basically a big glob of protein—the strands break apart and it looks like tiny white strings. Very cool.)

Microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster.

I…just…that is the fucking definition of heat, whether you’re heating something over a flame or in a microwave or using the Sun. The difference is that microwaves mostly affect the water molecules in your food and they don’t need to use as much heat. Water boils at 100°C, which is just about as hot as water can get before it just turns into steam; but that’s like the lowest setting on your oven. Oven- or stove-cooked food tastes different partly because it uses higher temperatures and partly because heat is transferred in a different way.

This movement causes friction

That’s not what friction is.

It results in destroyed vitamins, minerals, proteins and generates the new stuff called radiolytic compounds, things that are not found in nature.

Let’s take these one at a time.
Vitamins are classified as water-soluble or fat-soluble. So cooking things in water will dissolve the water-soluble vitamins (C and all the B’s). Just plain heat doesn’t do that, so microwaving veggies—which keeps the water in—is actually a healthier option.
Proteins: Breaking the chemical bonds in proteins (denaturing) is a part of any cooking. However, denatured protein is still nutritious—that’s why you can meet your protein intake with foods like fried eggs and baked chicken.
Minerals are just chemical elements, like off the periodic table—sodium, iron, potassium. (Vitamins and proteins are very complex combinations of elements.)
Which brings me to the “radiolytic compound” bullshit. When you talk about breaking apart, say, iron—you’re talking about breaking down the iron atoms themselves. Which is a whole lot different than breaking the bonds between atoms. It takes hella radiation. You need shit like gamma rays—the OOOH SCARY NUCULAR radiation—which we’ve already established do not come from your microwave.

things that are not found in nature

What the shit does that even mean? You all know radioactive elements occur in nature, right? In rocks and also in living cells. That’s right, you have this radioactive kind of carbon INSIDE YOU. You get it by eating those delicious plants. We can tell how long ago something died by how much of it is left.
Tons of shit that occurs naturally is horribly bad for you. And tons of shit that never existed until we cooked it up is great for you—like the chemical compounds in a lot of medications.
PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE THIS SHIT ARE WHY CHILDHOOD DISEASES THAT CAUSED SERIOUS ILLNESSES AND/OR DEATH THAT WE NEARLY ERADICATED WITH VACCINES ARE NOW COMING BACK AND WHY CONSPIRACY THEORIST TWATS ARE ASKING CITY COUNCIL NOT TO FLUORIDATE THE WATER AND WHY GLOBAL WARMING WILL WRECK OUR FUCKING PLANET.
LERN 2 SCIENCE. Think before you reblog. And microwave your veggies.

This was incredibly amusing to read. Thank you so much for sciencing.

This fucking blog actually said “microwaves agitate the molecules to move faster and faster.” like that’s some sort of terrible thing, when that’s literally how things get hot.I can’t fucking breathe. This shit is incredible. Absolutely fucking incredible.

Science. Sweet science.

i love when anti-science bullshit gets beat the fuck down

Good job, science side of tumblr!

Science side of Tumblr is what happens when you give science permission to freely express its exasperation with stupid.
