2 Works in Bucky & Tony
Tony and Bucky aren't on the best of terms, but they're working on it. Bucky tries (and fails) not to be irritated at Tony for being whiny and dramatic about the cold that he and the other human Avengers have come down with, but things go south when they find themselves suddenly captured, just the two of them, in a prison cell, Bucky with no metal arm and Stark with no arc reactor. Even under such extreme circumstances, it's impossible, maybe even more so than normal, for them to get along. If they could just cooperate for a minute; if they hadn't been too busy arguing to avoid capture; if Tony could just stop whining for long enough to think of a plan—they could be out of here in no time.
Until it turns out that Tony's got what looks to be pneumonia.
Maybe it wasn't all Stark's fault. If they'd just let him stay behind when he'd asked; if Bucky could just remember how to take care of another person; if only someone knew where they were—they wouldn't be in here in the first place. Now, it's a race against the clock to escape and it's up to Bucky to win for both of them.

Tony gets sick, and none of the Avengers seem to notice.
Maybe Tony's just too good at hiding things.
