Tony is being needy and moody = Rhodey asks if it’s about Steve
Steve is being spoiled = Bucky knows it’s a gift from Tony
Your best friends know what’s up with you guys
Gazing into each other’s eyes.
And that’s the truth.
“No offense, but I don’t think your dance partner was gonna fall for your swagger.”
“Did you just say ‘swagger’?”

“What a Man!” photoset, part II. Part I can be found here.
AKA: Tony’s Epic Mancrush on Steve Boarders on Inappropriate
(In fact, the last one there is just them monologuing about how each other are perfect and wonderful:
Steve [internal monologue]: “If it’s not the vicious thugs who call themselves heroes today, reminding me how outdated are my old man’s ways… it’s the amazing inventions that stem from Tony’s mind. Tomorrow’s dreams made real.”
Tony [internal monologue]: ”I feel like a snail or a tortoise, lumbering along in my shell, whenever I’m with Steve. So clumsy and so safe, next to his grace and daring.”
Steve [internal monologue]: “Yes, Tony Stark, a man of today and tomorrow… is the man I’ll never be.”
Tony [internal monologue]: “I have so much, I know I shouldn’t envy Steve and his strengths. And yet I do.”
“Break Up and Make Up”
You know how X-Men: First Class has the infamous Beach Scene? AKA THE DIVORCE??
Yeah. Steve and Tony have done that, too. About a hundred times.
(NB1: This is definitely not all the break-up/make-up moments, just the ones I had access to.
NB2: Xavier and Magneto have more than their fair share as well, besides just in the movie. But I’ll leave it to someone else to compile that photoset ;P)
