SHIELD safe-houses are always in the middle of nowhere, and Tony hates them on principle for that fact. (His lake house is in a respectable little slice of nowhere in the Catskills, thank you very much.)
Honestly, Tony hates that he’s anywhere but home right now with his wife and child, cuddled up by the fire watching How to Train Your Dragon for the twentieth time.
But it isn’t the right time. Not until the whole family can be there. Not until he finds Peter.
Tony Stark died, turning to dust like the enemies he vanquished with his final act of heroism. A year later, the unverse brings him back. Hiding away from the world after the reveal of his identity, Peter finds it harder to believe than anyone, and Tony has to convince him that it’s not all just another illusion.
