I'm looking for a shortish story I read at least a year ago on AO3. It's probably Steve/Tony friendship though it could be pre-slash I guess. In the story Steve finds out that Howard wasn't a very good father to Tony or even a good man in his later years. He is angry and storms out (to the roof of Stark tower I think). He talks out loud to himself how only one man deserved to have his name on the tower as his legacy and that the other doesn't deserve it (or something like that). Tony is watching a video of it and thinks Steve it talking about him not deserving Howard's legacy, but just as he is about to cut off the video feed Steve says something that makes him realise that he is talking about Howard not being worthy of Tony's achievments. Does this ring any bells?

What I really want right now are some fics where Steve makes a bad mistake--maybe it's the wrong call on a mission, or a brainwashing thing, or I dunno, an ABO dubcon thing or whatever--and feels terrible about it, and another character--preferably Bucky but I'll take others--forgives him and gets him back on track.

Please note that I do not want any darkfic where Steve acts cruelly but doesn't care. It's very important that he feel regret. (This request may or may not be my method of coping with a certain recent development in the Earth-616 continuity.)

As for the other character(s), they can be all comforting and understanding or they can take the drill-sergeant attitude of "Snap out of it, soldier, we've got work to do!" (kind of like we've seen Clint do for Wanda when she freezes up), I don't care which. The point is that they correctly gauge what Steve needs to hear to get him back to his normal tree-beside-a-river self.

Any ships are fine, just let me know what they are.


(P.S. How is "steve(remorseful)" its own tag? Am I about to discover a whole new subgenre, or what's the deal?)
