Adventures in Baking

Tony has a craving for something sweet.

Established relationship, Tony Stark/Clint Barton. First chapter in text format, second chapter in story format.

A/N:  This has no relation to “Adventures in Science”….I just thought the title was appropriate.



Stark1:  Clint, I want a cupcake.

Hawkeye58:  Okay.  That’s random.  So buy a cupcake.

Stark1:  I don’t wanna go ALONE.  That’s BORING.

Hawkeye58:  Haha oh really?  Company suddenly makes cupcakes not boring?

Stark1:  I don’t know.   I just have this huge hankering for a cupcake.  Ooh!  Maybe I’ll make some!  I’ve never made cupcakes.  Have you ever made cupcakes?

Hawkeye58:  Um.  No……I’ve made a regular cake a few times.

Stark1:  Hahaha.  That’s a really adorable mental image.  I wanna see that sometime.

…..yea, I’m gonna make cupcakes.

Hawkeye58:  Ha yeah?  What kind?

Stark1:  ………I don’t know.  Um…….yellow ones.  With chocolate frosting.  Lots and lots of chocolate.

Hawkeye58:  Ha.  Sounds good.

Stark1:  Yea.

……I’ve never really shopped on my own, either.  Huh.  Damn.  There’s a LOT of different kinds of cupcakes.  There are some that are yellow AND brown, did you know that?

Hawkeye58:  What…the chocolate swirly kind?  I’ve seen stuff like that.  They have a mix?

Stark1:  Yea.  That’s just crazy.  Crazy talk.

Hawkeye58:  Is it just a picture?  Maybe it’s just yellow with a picture?

Stark1:  No, it’s some weird thing where you like, pour in chocolate stuff and swirl it to make a pattern.

…..I’m getting this.  I’m totally getting this.

Hawkeye58:  What?  Bullshit.  Really?

Stark1:  No, totally.  I’m dead serious.  I need this.

Hawkeye58:  That’s amazing.  Seriously.  What the hell?  I didn’t know there was a mix for that.

Stark1:  Me neither.  But I’m about to make it.  Come over after work and eat my awesome cupcakes.

Hawkeye58:  Well, I was planning on it anyway.  But yeah.  The cupcakes definitely add more incentive.

Stark1:  Hahaha good to know food entices you more than me.

Hawkeye58:  Can’t help it.  My stomach can be very demanding sometimes.

Stark1:  Mm….amongst other things…..

Hawkeye58:  Ha!  Shut the hell up.

Stark1:  Ha you know it’s true.

Hawkeye58:  …………’re still an ass.

Stark1:  Yup.  And that doesn’t change the fact that whenever you come over, nine times out of ten, you throw me down as soon as you walk in the door.

Hawkeye58:   …………………..cuz I miss you………………..

Stark1:  ………………..okay, when are you out of work?

Hawkeye58:  A couple hours.  Gotta put in time on the range and finish these papers.

Stark1:  …………hurry up.  I really wanna see you now.

Hawkeye58:  Oh, what.  You didn’t before?  Heh.  But I’ll try and hurry through the papers.  I suck at paperwork.

Stark1:  No, I did before.  But then you talked about missing me and it just made me wanna see you even more.

Hawkeye58:  Well, I do miss you.  Thought you knew that.

Stark1:  Well, yea.  But it‘s nice to hear it.

………….so did you know that you’re supposed to put the mixer in the batter before turning it on?  Cuz yea.  I didn’t.

Hawkeye58:  AHAHAHA. That.  I did know.  Oh man.  That’s hilarious.

Stark1:  ………shuttup.

Hawkeye58:  Hahaha no.  Are you covered?

Stark1:  …………..shuttup.

Hawkeye58:   HAHA oh man awesome.

Stark1:  You are SUCH a jerk.

Hawkeye58:  Ahahaha but you love me.

Stark1:  Yea yea.  You’re lucky.

Hawkeye58:  Don’t I know it.

Stark1:  Heh.  Yea?

Hawkeye58:  Well, yeah.  And awesome.

Stark1:  Haha wow.  And here I thought you were complimenting ME.  How silly of me.

Hawkeye58:  Haha.  Now why would I do that?  But I do know.  How lucky I am.

Stark1:  Heh.  Good.  Cuz you are.  You found someone who loves you like crazy.

Hawkeye58:  Never thought I would.

Stark1:  ……….why?  I mean.  You can be a pain in the ass, but you’re funny, and charming, very sweet when you WANT to be.  Extremely good looking.  Why wouldn’t someone fall in love with you?

Hawkeye58:  Heh.  Well….seems I have a habit of screwing that up.  But.  This time I plan on trying even harder not to.

Stark1:  Well, you’d have to try pretty damn hard to screw it up.  I plan on being fairly forgiving with you.  The last thing I want to do is lose you.

Hawkeye58:  See…..and that’s how I know I’m damn lucky.

Stark1:  Heh.  I love you so much.

…..these cupcakes smell AWESOME.

Hawkeye58:  Yeah?  Ha.  Good.  Can’t wait to see them.

Stark1:  Oh, they’re gonna be epic.

Hawkeye58:  I’ll bet.  Hey.  I’m out of here soon.  Want me to pick up dinner?

Stark1:  Heh.  Sure.  Sounds great.

Hawkeye58:  Cool.  Um….anything in particular?

Stark1:  Surprise me.

Hawkeye58:  I can do that.

Stark1:  Oh, I know.  You’re usually pretty good at that.

Hawkeye58:  Ha.  You think?  Nice.

Stark1:  Oh, come on.  Like you didn’t know that.

Hawkeye58:  Yeah.  But I like hearing it.

Stark1:  Heh.  Good.  It’d be unfortunate if you didn’t.  Well, be prepared for delicious awesomeness.

Hawkeye58:  Of course.  You be prepared as well…..though I guess mine won’t be as awesome since I’m not making it.

Stark1:  Yea.

…… soon are you gonna be here?

Hawkeye58:  Half an hour?

Stark1:  Ah.  Okay.  Cool.

Hawkeye58:  Why?  Is that a problem?

Stark1:  No, no problem.  I’m just…..still a mess.

Hawkeye58:  Ah…..damn.  Kinda wish I was there now.

Stark1:  Hahahahaha asshole.  Well, I still have to frost them so who knows.  Maybe you’ll get lucky.  If you hurry.

Hawkeye58:  Mnn.  I’ll see what I can do.

Stark1:  Heh no skin off my back if you miss my humiliation.

Hawkeye58:  I’m sure Jarvis can play it back.

Stark1:  Ha yea right.  That would only work if I LET him play it back.  And I won’t.

Hawkeye58:  Psh.  Jarvis is his own computer.  And we’re totally bros.  😛

Stark1:  Ha yea right.  He won’t do it if I don’t want him to.  This is you doubting my tech again.  What you SHOULD be doing is hurrying up.  Otherwise you’ll miss out.

Hawkeye58:  I’m not doubting your tech.  Jarvis is AI, right?  And he has a lot of your snark.  And I’m going as fast as I can, here.

Stark1:  Heh well, you’re running out of tiiiiiiiime…  XP  Almost done with these cupcakes and I have to say, they look bitchin

Hawkeye58:  Okay.  Well, sorry.  Grabbing food is taking longer than I thought.

Stark1:  Ha like I said, no skin off my back.  I’m totally fine with no one seeing me like this.  EVER.

Hawkeye58:  Of course not.

Stark1:  Yup.  I think the sight of me covered in cake batter is one that doesn’t really need to be shared with the world.

Hawkeye58:  Oh?  Because I’m kind of in disagreement there.

Stark1:  Haha you would be.  Well, unless you take photos then it’s not gonna happen, and I’m pretty positive that photos aren’t going to happ….what was that?

Hawkeye58:  What was what?  You okay?

Stark1:  …….sounds.  Outside.

…’re not here, are you?

Hawkeye58:  No.  Told you.  I’m picking up food.

Stark1:  ………..okay……

Hawkeye58:  ………………….sure you’re okay?

Stark1:  I’m totally fine.  Just sounds like someone’s outside.

Hawkeye58:  Huh.  Did you check?

Stark1:  …….no…..I’m elbow-deep in frosting.  But I’m done now, so……guess I’ll go look……hang on.

    (snickers) Since my mom spent most of the first few times I tried cooking, hanging over my shoulder, I have actually never had an incident like that. But the idea of Tony Stark covered in cupcake batter and frosting cracks me up. Good job!
