When Darkness Sleeps Beside You is a Steve/Tony AU by rufflefeather. The story is based on a gif set by superheroesandsuperhusbands on Tumblr. The author says in the notes: "They gracefully gave me permission to use the dialogue and turn their gifs into this story."
Avengers AU: Steve works as an escort to support himself as a struggling artist, and Tony is a rich… philanthropist.
“You’re way too young and pretty to be here voluntarily. So what’s your price? I’ll pay double.”
Steve turned around towards the voice. The man was handsome, he’ll give him that, but he was definitely tipsy, if not drunk - as evident by the almost empty glass of scotch in his hand. Still, Steve wasn’t going to pass up an opportunity to make a quick buck.
“Depends on what you’re after. Got a place we could go?”The man smirked. “My room’s an elevator ride away.”
