The midnight kiss.
I did it!
As far as I see it, it’s the very begining of Steve and Tony’s relationship. I guess, they didn’t even have sex, yet. Steve is still a bit uncomfortable about having a romantic relationship with another man, but he feels incredibly lonely is this world, utterly unknown and strage to him. He’s hungly for a human touch, for being needed and to care for someone. And Tony falls for him, partly because he wants all the best for himself, and no matter how bad Steve irritates him at times, he knows, he admits it deep inside, that Steve’s the best. And partly, it’s because, it’s impossible not to trust Steve, even if you’re a someone, like Tony, who prefers a one night stand to a steafy relationship.
And the most important thing is, that Steve is very hard to get, even for Tony, no matter how charming he can be. It’s not a pose, not an attempt to play a kinf of a game, it’s just, Steve is not the one, who jumps into anyone’s bed, unless he has feelings for this person. And it makes Tony both intrigued, irritated and desperate.
When Steve sees his vulnerability beyond his mask of sarcasm and everlasting optimism, he’s gives in…a little, just for a kiss maybe, but it’s bigger than a whole world that he’s used to own, for Tony.
And even though Steve is unexpirienced, and shy and even timid in some way, when he makes a decision, he goes though and doesn’t stop.
And though it’s Tony, here, who lures him into a kiss, Tony it will be, who will fall, and be held in trustworthy hands, and looses his heart to someonw who can keep it and protect it.
