Fic Search: Gen with sick/hurt!Tony and Tony/Pepper

Well, I've lost another one. Grr. In this one, Tony is sic -- like, really sick -- and doesn't want anyone to know thanks to Howard's awesome parenting. Barton (and Rogers, kind of deliberately and kind of by default) think he's still hungover from the night before, and when they see Pepper's personal doctor -- who's an attractive woman -- they assume Tony must cheating with her. The Monster of the Week (TM) attacks and Tony forces himself to fight, but ends up back at the Tower (I think Jarvis might have taken control of the suit, but I'm not sure) and the others are whining to Coulson about it when he and Fury realize what's going on and make a mad dash to the Tower, only to find Tony crumbled where he fell when the armor came off and barely alive. I know I read this at AO3, but sorting through the Phil Coulson tag will take forever and I'm afraid I'll miss it anyway. Help?
