I've been searching for this fic I read ages ago, and have had no luck finding it. I know it is either Tony/Steve or Tony/Phil but can't remember which.
Basically, (Steve?Phil?) is presumed dead, and Tony can't come to terms with it; he begins to hallucinate them, and has conversations with them in his workshop.
Eventually after several days he becomes exhausted and goes to bed.
Meanwhile, (Steve?Phil?) returns.
When Tony wakes up, he doesn't actually comment, as he believes he is still hallucinating.
Pepper comes in with a bowl of soup and speaks to (Steve?Phil?) at which point Tony realises that they are really there and not just a figment of his imagination.
Bit of a vague description; if anyone can identify it, that would be great! Thanks! 🙂
No wonder I couldn't find it; I got one of the main characters wrong! It is actually Tony Stark/Bruce Wayne, and can be found at the following link:
