Fanfic Wednesday: “I Hope You Have Unlimited Text Messaging”


“I Hope You Have Unlimited Text Messaging” by Misscar (AO3)

Pairings: Tony Stark/Stever Rogers
Word Count:  35,557 (and counting)

Warning: This is a WIP. 

Author’s Summary

Post Captain America Civil War fix-it:For the first time in their entire acquaintance, Tony and Steve start having really honest conversations with each other via text message, of course.

Or Tony and Steve try to repair their relationship before the next apocalypse. This may take a while. Actually, battling blue and/or purple aliens would be preferable to working through their feelings.

My Thoughts

Omg who am I? Reccing a WIP? This is so unlike me. I don’t read WIPs.

And yet here we are.

If you asked me how I found this, I probably couldn’t tell you (I wasn’t in the “Tony Stark Needs A Hug tag”, nope not me). And though I didn’t initially recognize it’s WIP status, by the time I got to chapter ten, I no longer cared. The story is told primarily as text messages between Steve and Tony, using the burner phone that we see at the end of CA: CW. It’s the slowest slow burn and eventually even FRIDAY has to intervene by sending Steve playlists of everything Tony is feeling but won’t tell Steve.

It’s so adorable and angsty and I can’t even.

Read this if you’re still suffering from CW angst, love Stony, and don’t mind WIPs.
