Steve Rogers was born to single mother, Sarah Rogers, on July 4, 1920. She often joked that he was her freedom baby. It wasn’t an easy life and all of Steve’s health problems only made things worse. Medicine was expensive so Steve spent most of his days in his room drawing his worries away. He dreamed of a world where he would be truly free to do what he wanted to do. Though his body never stopped him from trying. When he did go to school, he was bullied. Steve got into more fights than he could count and always refused to go down until the other guy was bruised and gave up. He’d always had Bucky though, especially after his mother died. It wasn’t until he volunteered for Operation: Rebirth and became Captain America that he really felt like he made a difference. He’d always wanted to defend those who couldn’t on a larger scale than just Brooklyn.
Being Captain America was a dream but he always still felt like that kid from Brooklyn. He quickly realized that war had been too romanticized. War wasn’t easy. It left Steve broken in more ways than one especially after losing Bucky. He didn’t have much to lose when he crashed the plane and slept in ice for 70 years. He’d been young and reckless up until then after all. After he’d woken up, S.H.I.E.L.D. decided to reintegrate him by making him part of the Avengers. It was, weird enough, like coming home. The Avengers was a great family and Tony’s home became their home. It was a peace he’d never really known. Everything was great until Bucky showed up like a ghost from a past he sometimes didn’t want to remember. He did his best to pull him out of the control but it all went so wrong so quickly.
The Accords were trouble from the start but he’d never expected it to leave him on a different side of the battlefield from Tony. He hated that their inability to compromise tore up the Avengers and basically destroyed the home they’d built together. It escalated to the point that they’d almost hurt each other but the bruises they’d inflicted was nothing compared to the knowledge that Bucky had murdered Tony’s parents. He was glad that they’d been able to put it aside for the betterment of others when they agreed to aid Mickey in their fight against Maleficent. As much as Steve hoped things would fall back into place just like old times the damage had been done. The dynamic within the Avengers was different. As much as it bothered him he couldn’t let it affect him too much with people depending on him once again. For now, he’d worry about the being a soldier once more and wait for Tony to truly forgive him.

t o n y s t a r k — it’s complicated
Tony is Steve’s ally and friend. Despite their vast differences in personality, they clearly respect each other. eventually they formed a close relationship; even though they argue quite a lot. However their close friendship is now strained due to the revelation of Tony’s parents. Steve’s blindspot has always been Bucky. Until his dying breath he will defend his childhood friend which in turn has cost him Tony’s friendship. Steve wants to make things right with Tony. He wants his forgiveness especially now that they’re taking on a new enemy. They can’t work together as a team if they’re at each other’s throats and Steve can’t fight alongside tony knowing he’s hurt him.
