Specific kidnapped and sick Tony fic

Hi guys,

I have been hunting for a couple of stories I remember and can't find them anywhere - it's driving me nuts!

I think one was on FF.net.... Tony had been kidnapped and the Avengers were streamed live broadcast footage of him with the kidnappers. He acted more stunned and beat up than he was and started speaking in code, something about a game of poker?

The other was where Tony was ill maybe, so Steve was driving him somewhere - something goes wrong on the journey, Tony can't get enough air? And while they're freaking out the suit flies up to Tony and flies him off independently to lower ground.

Doe either of these ring any bells for anyone! Help much appreciated, thanks! 

Specific Telepathic Tony fic - FOUND

I know that I found this on AO3, but I cannot remember the author, or the title, or basically anything that would help me search there. I only managed to read the beginning of this fic. I remember two scenes that should be specific enough for someone to help, I hope.

Scene One: post-battle, Steve asks whether everyone is okay. Tony says he's fine, but then everyone hears him thinking something along the lines of, 'and my back feels pretty bad, but if I mention that I'll have to go to medical'. It turns out he got hit by something from the villain (who isn't identified that I remember) that makes him project every thought he has.

I know there was a big fuss when they found out, but I can't remember anything helpful about it.

Scene Two: next day, breakfast, in the kitchen. I think Clint and Bruce are there when Tony comes in doing a zombie impersonation and gets his first cup of coffee, and when he drinks it they hear his thoughts suddenly pick up speed (like 0-120 picking up speed) and Clint is shocked by it. Tony is surprised that they can actually function without coffee; there's a line where he thinks something along the lines of, 'How can you do that?'

Help, please?
