Author’s Summary

“JARVIS,” Tony called thoughtfully.

“Yes, sir?”

“Those young people are in love,” he said.

My Thoughts

I never knew I had a matchmaker!kink until I read this fic. Tony’s been spying on his friends in the Avengers Tower and decides to help hot grandpas, Steve and post-Winter Soldier!Bucky, confess a feeling with the help of his partner in crime, Pepper Potts. Pepper/Tony have been a favorite pairing of mine for ages now, so them meddling in the affairs of these two hot super assassins is pretty adorable. It takes a versatile writer to attempt a Tony Stark POV because, come on, RDJ has taken that character to the moon and back; it’s hard to get that down on paper. Desdemon captures the classic Iron Man sass along with the neurosis that buzzes right underneath his skin, while revealing the caring, loving friend that we all know Tony Stark is deep (deep) down inside.

Cue the fluff.

Tony and Pepper are adorable, and yes, Steve and Bucky are pretty darn cute, too. What I love about this story more than anything is Tony taking a genuine interest in the well-being of his friends, and using his money and power to help them become a better team and maybe, just maybe, a couple of them will fall in love.

May I respectfully request from the Avengers fandom more Steve/Bucky, Tony/Pepper and Natasha/Clint stories, please?
