The only things I'm absolutely sure about for the fic I'm looking for
-I read it on Ao3
-It's MCU based
-Steve gets hurt at one point
-The others (Tony maybe? Bruce maybe?) want to give him something for the pain but he comments that it won't work. They're like, well what have you tried. He says everything. Tony is horrified and asks him something like how that's supposed to work. Steve says that he heals up faster than normal and until then "Duck faster."Tony is suitably more horrified by that.
I think he starts making plans to upgrade Steve's armor into something that can protect him better?

Also, I'm really craving fic that focuses on how much smarter Steve is than everyone expects. Especially if it's related to the serum making his brain function faster/better/etc. Eidetic memory and the like.
Gen is awesome and I seldom find it since I almost always search via a pairing filter. For pairings, I prefer Tony/Steve, Bruce/Steve, Clint/Steve, or Sam/Steve. I'm not in a Bucky/Steve or a Natasha/Steve headspace right now unless it's a truly amazing fic.
