Their first meeting is less than auspicious. Steve is confused and angry, Tony is disappointed and hurt. Neither of them seems aware as to why each of them brings out such strong emotion in the other. They just know they rub each other raw.
War stops for no-one’s hurt feelings and in scant time, Steve calls Tony by his given name for the first time. Friction is still there though. The best they seem to be able to hope for is a businesslike relationship.
Yet in only a few hours time, these men who have never met before. Never trained together, who have had no time to study each other’s fighting styles or tactical methods, move together in harmony. They are perfectly synced. Each knows inherently where the other is. Tony knows to his core that Steve will turn precisely when he needs him to. Steve knows with a resonance in his bones, exactly where Tony will step, how he will place his body. They know without words that each will always have the other’s back. All within knowing of each other’s existence for less than a day.
How? Soulmates. They are meant to be. Be it as teammates, brother’s lovers or friends. The lives of these two men are intrinsically bound. Always.

“Banner’s work was very early-phase. It wasn’t even weapons application, she thought she was working on radiation resistance. I would never have told her what it was really for, but she was so sure about what she was doing she tested it on herself. And something went very wrong… or it went very right.”
