Answer: BOTH! Also, enemies! (Sometimes?)
So, I've been sucked into a new fandom. thefourthvine recc'd the first fic in my list below, I loved it, and then I started reading tons of Iron Man/Captain America fics. I watched this year's Captain America and enjoyed it but hadn't seen either Iron Man or Thor, but I suppose it doesn't matter in the end because lots of the fics are based on the comics. According to a friend knowledgeable in comics, that is an eminently slashable pairing from long ago. Since there are different timelines the details (and sometimes the entire premise of the world) are pretty different. I just read a bunch and made a list of the ones I liked.
Tomorrow Belongs To Me by valtyr, movies, a REALLY long and satisfying fic detailing how Steve wakes up in the present day and learns to adjust. There's a lot of hilarious bits and the romance is absolutely lovely. Oh, and there's a threat and some fighting and adventure. All around awesome. Just don't start reading it before work because you may end up late.
Honey, I Can See the Stars by twentysomething, movies, Steve is clueless but sweet and Tony doesn't quite know how to deal. There's also a pesky Clause V in the way, but the little things don't matter in the end.
Childhood Sweetheart by valtyr, comics, an adorable fic about how the two react to the NY same sex marriage thing. And when I say adorable, I mean adorable.
Scale and Perspective (The Technicolor Remix) by destroythemeek, comics, super sweet fic involving Steve's art and how they get together.
En Suite by valtyr, comics, PWP shower sex.
Toys by valtyr, comics, ridiculously and adorably sweet bit o' fic. Steve is sad because of something somewhat trivial and Tony doesn't make fun of him, he comforts him.
Look here, look back, look ahead by marinarusalka, not sure how it relates to the comics, it's set in the 40's, Iron Man crashes into the mountains returning from a mission and is rescued by Captain America on his own mission. They team up, but turns out there's a big secret that comes between them...
age is an irrational number by valtyr, comics, Steve and Tony are married and grow old together.
♥ by tsukinofaerii, comics, totally cracky fluff.
Apparently Only One Meal From Barbarism by valtyr, comics, kinda nasty but hilarious too. Toxic mongoose is the operative word here.
Heart of Steel by Muccamukk, comics and movie, Steve wakes up in a dystopian future and ends up in a marriage of convenience with Tony. Sadly, it's WIP and probably will not be finished (last updated January 2010) but I enjoyed the eight existing chapters.
On the Record by valtyr, comics, the tabloids have a problematic headline featuring Tony and Steve. Everyone's horrified and tries to hide it from Steve. Steve finds out (naturally), but his reaction...
Lack of Restraint by often_adamanta, movies, Steve wants Tony to tie him up. It's kink, yes, but it's also about other issues. It's rather sweet.
Secrets of a Successful Marriage by valtyr, comics, Tony is a supervillian married to Steve who is a superhero. It all works because they haven't told each other, but naturally it comes out when Steve is captured by a fellow supervillian...
What Lies Inside by Penumbren, comics, when they find Captain America in ice, Tony the werewolf finds his mate. Oh yes, one of those stories. There's lots of pining and angst. It's great!
