Steve was settling in for a pleasant evening with his jazz records and his paints. He'd gotten a concerning text from Tony a few days ago, but enough time had passed without any kind of drunken overdramatic followup that he thought they might be in the clear for the time being.


((For that guy.))

If by follow up, he meant a recently graduated Tony Stark bearing coffee. So, that meant you had to feed him, Steve.

Deal with his logic.

He knocked on the door with his foot. Okay, it was more like kicking it. "Mr. Rogers. You there? I have coffee."

"I need employment," Tony replied, offering one of the cups over.

"No, a bribe would be promising not to do something stupid like jump off a skyscraper in a prototype." Which he wouldn't do. Maybe. "They sold my company."

They being the dumbest board of directors ever.

"The board of directors."

"Oh no, she didn't. And we're fighting it," Tony assured him. "But for now, I am broke and unemployed."

A beat.

"To Justin Hammer. How is this my life? It's like being beat by the slow kid on the playground."

"Apparently it was all tied up in the company and I didn't own it until graduation or some other crap," Tony muttered before downing half his coffee and tossing down backpack on the nearest couch. "Mrs. Rhodes is working on it, but Justin apparently has all the lawyers in the world on his side."

If it helped, Mrs. Rhodes was the only one he trusted. Though he heard good things about that one blind lawyer guy...

"No, I need a job to pay for college and maintain the suits." So there! "Until we get everything that belongs to me back. Plus side, I have options for work."

"I do. Jarvis kept them connecting it to the one back home," Tony replied, digging out pamphlets from various companies who had already approached him. The top of the pile was Roxxon Energy Corporation. "It's not exactly turning a profit, though."

"Well, I was thinking you could help steer me in the right direction."

He fanned them out, revealing on for Oscorp, Shaw Industries, Rand-Meachum, Inc., Future Foundation, and AIM.

The last one was Tony thinking he was funny.

"Aww, but Shaw invited me to his private club to sweeten the deal," Tony joked. Because yeah, he so wanted to go clubbing with a creeper.

But he could grow a creepy pornstache for it, Steve!

"Which leaves Reed Richards' think tank and Danny Rand's company. Did you know I just barely missed meeting him in Tibet?" So unfair.
