The Fall of Binary Stars Part One

The Fall of Binary Stars
By: Memory Dragon
Disclaimer: I do not own the Avengers movie-verse, nor do I make any claim to.  Also, I may have stolen a lot of things from Babylon 5, but absolutely no knowledge about B5 is necessary to read this.  I just made a heck of a lot of references since I'm kind of half-stealing a plot thread from it.
Characters: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, OFCs, OMCs
Warnings: Kind of, sort major character death that doesn't quite get better but isn't quite dead either?  Yeah, it's complicated (as in huge spoilers), but complicated with a happy ending.  Just realize there are some (non-overly gory) descriptions of death in here.  There's also some kind of assisted suicide that doesn't take and one case of briefly mentioned actual suicide.  Seriously, just go with it.  Check the spoilers at the end if you need to, but I don't recommend it.
Rating: PG 13
Summary: The last thing Steve Rogers wanted was to wake up to find he'd lost not seventy years, but 235 years this time.  Just when he was getting his life together, he has to start over again.

Or does he?
Thanks: Many thanks as always to narwhale_callin, even if I did kill her with one part of the angst, and then again with one part of the fluff.  Also thanks to Cameron_McKell for giving me a plot to twist to my own purposes.
Notes:  Hi.  So like, absolutely no one is actually going to read this since it's Steve Rogers surrounded in a sea of OCs, but hey.  One can dream, right?

This was written for a prompt on the cap-im: Fifty Years of Captain America and Iron Man meme.  It does not quite follow the prompt, because I'm worse than a genie with twisting prompts to suit my own purposes.  Basically, I read the prompt, then had a Babylon 5 epiphany, and ran with it.  Let me repeat, you do not need to know anything about B5 for this.  I just stole a plot line because it worked so extremely well.  I've linked the prompt at the end, since it is spoiler-y in nature, even if not entirely truthful to where I've taken the fic.

Also, there are OCs.  The nature of the story kind of requires them, since Steve wakes up by his lonesome 235 years in the future.  And if anyone is still reading who hasn't been scared off by the letters 'OC' then hopefully you will enjoy them.

Finally, if you won't take my word on the fact that it has a happy ending of 5k of unredeemable fluff, you can find complete spoilers in the end notes.  I (or rather, my Beta, who emphatically said I should try not to ruin anything) do not recommend this as it completely spoils the story, but it's there if you need it.  If possible, I'd suggest getting a friend to read it and tell you if you'd like it.
