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.
……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: …………..you’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.
Hawkeye58: Hahaha no. Are you covered?
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.
…..um…..how 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.
…..you’re not here, are you?
Hawkeye58: No. Told you. I’m picking up food.
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.
