This was Tony. HE hadn’t kissed lightly or softly or anything of the sort. Had Stephen drawing in a sharp breath as he pulled back and felt his lip being bit. “Tony. Tony, stop. Do you know what you’re doing?”

Tony and his defense mechanisms… Honestly. “That conversation would need me to be quite drunk, Tony.” He had tried to fight against joining the war after all. Finding someone during that impossibly long stretch of time when he’s still been young and naive…. He ran a hand through his hair before he stood up once more. “For the one involving you and I.”

Slowly, he rose to his feet and moved to stand in front of the other man. Looking minutely down into his eyes. “I would never put you in the same category as past experiences. You… are particularly indefinable.” He gave the slightest smile. “But I expect you know your own mind. Simply remember that I am open to the possibility.”

Antonio blinked once, then huffed and looked up to Stephen “Okay, now I’m confused. You say you’re open to the possibility, but you don’t want me to be one of your regrets? That kind of implies you don’t want to be with me because I’m too much of a pain and a risk and you’ll regret being with me and … I … if it’s any consolation, you won’t have much time to regret anyway seeing as I’m a dying man! But … look, I get it. I’m a fucking mess. I drink too much, I constantly stink of booze, sick and chemo drugs. It’s not a great cocktail of smells no matter how much I shower, I know. No one in their right fucking mind would want to be with me unless they think they can get something out of it, like my money or whatever… even then she could barely bear it but she was a great actress after all…” Tony trailed off in his angry sudden rant, then turned away “I need a drink…” He muttered and headed for his spirits cabinet.

“Tony…” He trailed off. He wasn’t one who played his hand so causally, and it seemed tony had far to many people take his trust and his talents to exploit them. Stephen didn’t want to do that. He didn’t want the man to feel as if he was forcing this onto him either. “I am… I simply haven’t been with a man in decades. I should never have let myself be in the first place because he was so clearly the wrong choic-” he cut himself off. Sighed heavily. Raised a hand to the back of his neck and rubbed it along his skin.

“We all have our regrets. I don’t want you to be one of mine.” He wasn’t going to bring this up. At all. Ever. Tony was here and he didn’t want anything complicated… “I don’t think I quite remember how to just… enjoy another’s company.” He looked up and gave a rather weak smile. “To many things going on with trying to save every life on this earth.”

"How is it that much different in being with a man instead of a woman-?" Antonio started, then halted when Stephen mentioned his previous experience and flinched just slightly when he talked about regrets. He couldn’t help but feel hurt that he was already thought of as a potential regret before he was even given a chance. He tried to hide it as he broke eye contact and rubbed a little at his neck "Erm, yeah, that’s cool … I get it. I’m pretty busy myself, you know. Just got back from the dead, it’s surprising how much work piles up when people think you’re dead and all… I, er, have a lot to deal with right now. Yeah."

"I am afraid I cannot allow you to leave, yet. I need to track your movements during your time here. I apologize for the process, but it is simply what must be done."

Turning, he started walking toward the entrance of Avengers Tower. “Come with me.”

"Oh. Well. If you insist." Antonio returned deadpanned. He sighed and followed the robot that in his universe had kidnapped and drugged him into an artificial coma. Fun times. "So, er… you’re really with the Avengers, on the side of good, here?"

"Thanks, Antonio."

Steve could think of a few different scenarios as to what was actually wrong with Antonio. Hearing what was actually wrong? It had him momentarily speechless. He was sick – terminally so. It actually explained why he’d offered him a chance to explore the different universes. What could he actually say that hadn’t been said before? He felt like an idiot and rubbing the back of his neck, he tried to offer him a comforting smile. “I didn’t know, Antonio,” he told him, forcing his eyes to actually look at the other. As far as he could tell the man looked okay. But not every disease made itself visible. He had learned that much from being around the other Stark he knew. “You’re right, though. Some journey’s are better done with someone else. No real fun in doing something alone. But if you’re sure you want to spend your remaining time with me then I can’t really say no.” And hopefully between the two of them they could at least make whatever time Antonio had left enjoyable. It also gave him a chance to enjoy the life that had been stolen from him when he crashed into the ice.

Tony smiled a little “Yeah, I know … I mean, there was no way you could have known, so don’t worry about it. I don’t mind when people don’t know, it kind of tends to put a damper on things, doesn’t it? … But … I figure you should know that at least, so you would know what you’re getting into if you’re traveling with me. And why I have to go back for treatments every so often…” Antonio explained. 

He returned a warmer smile at Steve’s answer, with a tinge of relief. “Well, gee, Cap, you seem like a swell guy to me. I think we could have fun together.”

Oh and sweep you off your feet?”

"That’s acceptable too. I was referring though to the scene where she asks him where it hurts so he points out different places on his body and she kisses each one."

"There is not an established procedure as of yet. For now, all dimensional and time travelers are considered fugitives and must be taken into custody to lessen their impact on the natural order."

"Come peacefully and you will not be harmed."

"But I’m not a refugee!" Antonio tried to argue "I’m more like a …" He sighed " … a tourist, sort of." Right, like those never impacted the natural order of things. "Erm… I have some experience at travel and I’m careful and I haven’t caused any major disasters yet?" He winced a little "Right, erm… I’ll come along." He held up his hands in a ‘harmless’ gesture "See, no weapons. But, erm… if I really am not welcome, I can just leave."

"Nothing’s ever truly simple with you, so I’ve little doubt of that." His eyes took in that change in expression. The genuine warmth that seemed to radiate behind Tony’s smile and he had hope. That his words were not empty promises but filled with a righteous intention. He specialized in the impossible, after all.

It seemed Tony was still rather good at getting his attention, because grasping his hands had him looking up once more within a heartbeat. Heard his meandering words. How they wound and twisted up around each other. Giving him more information, true but little to settle the nervous flutter which almost seemed to speed up his heart. “Oh.” So he had meant it… Stephen blinked once. Then twice as he had to break eye contact. For his own sanity if nothing else. “Tony I’m not… Men are a rather complicated and touchy subject for me. You’re very attractive and…” He let out a sigh as he looked up once more. “I don’t think I would tell you no if you tried to kiss me again.”

"Story of my life, everything is always more complicated than it should be." Antonio returned with a wry little smile. "But, erm… this needn’t be. If anything, life’s too short for that to be complicated. I mean… just … enjoying another’s company. It’s somehow a rare thing in my life. People always want something from me." He trailed off a little, then raised an eyebrow "Oh. You’re not sure you are…?" He chewed on the inside of his cheek for a moment, a nervous gesture "Right, erm… look, Stephen, I am not going to force you into anything you don’t want."

"I am Ultron Seven, my fathers son and an Avenger. I am afraid as an illegal dimensional visitor, you must be held for questioning. Do not resist."

"Well, yes, I am an inter-dimensional traveler… wait, you’re an Avenger?" Antonio asked confused. Weren’t they the good guys? Well, it depended on how this version of Ultron was programmed, of course. Still, he didn’t really trust anything made by Hank Pym… no matter what dimension he was in. "Wait, what? Er… I’m not a- … is there even such a thing as legal dimensional visitor? Am I supposed to get a passport? Ask your local Sorcerer Supreme, sort of thing?"
