    Summary

    Tony was pretty sure that the small human left on his doorstep was just a (really fucking frightening) attempt at extortion, and mostly just wanted child protective services to show up yesterday. Then an extended trip to Afghanistan puts life, the universe and everything into perspective, and somehow, miraculously, Tony might be closer to happy than he's been in his life. He's even willing to accept the enormous pieces of the puzzle he's obviously missing. He should've learnt long ago that what you don't know will always come back to bite you in the ass.

    Summary

    A story of Pepper and Tony getting back together from Pepper's point of view. She is the CEO of a multinational company and has been single over a year.

    Everything looks good on the outside, but she's suffering inside. She has some kind of a depression and an eating disorder, a little post-traumatic stress, a huge impostor syndrome from all the gossip she has been a victimized through the years - and a burnout coming.

    She misses Tony but remembers vividly the reasons she left him. He is having a steady relationship with Bruce and something else going on with a young brunette Pepper doesn't want to know anything about.

    This is also a story about Pepper's everyday life, her friends (including many of the Avengers), and her work. Some cameos from other series are mentioned in notes in the beginning of the chapters. And a little bit about Darcy Lewis's relationship with her father, too.

    Tony learns what Pepper has been hiding from him and Pepper finds a family. End pairing: Pepper/Tony/Bruce.

    And he can do it all without even opening that stupid phone.

    ...he might need a tad bit of help.

    Summary

    They won't listen. His family wouldn't listen. They would rather tear him apart to suit their ends. They would prefer selfish actions to satisfy selfish ends as opposed to deferring to the greater good. They would rather use him as the scapegoat for all of their failures as humans - force him to shoulder the burden and heartache of being cast aside and forgotten.

    They won't listen.

    So he will make them.

    “Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.”
    ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

    Summary

    So Jarvis is the one who pulls her up onto her feet, presses a tool into one hand and a book into the other and tells her to create. Tells her that if the numbers and the shapes and images in her mind hurt so bad then she should build them, should give them form so that they can finally leave her alone.

    Jarvis is the one who finally teaches her how to breathe.

    Or

    Toni Stark grows up with the tale of Icarus swirling in the back of her mind. Instead of taking it as a precautionary tale about hubris and overreaching she decides it's more about the limitations of wax.

    Years later when she builds herself wings of her own she makes sure to build them out of better material.

    Summary

    “Humans are machines. Fascinating ones, but fatally flawed- because we feel too much. We try our hardest to be objective; but whenever two sides are too close, we ‘follow our heart’, which means fall prey to whatever our emotions think best and fuck all that logic might have had to say about it.”

    Sequel to 'And In The Silence That Follows'. Three months after the 'truce', AIM is on the move again, and Norman Osborn seems increasingly determined to seize power in the void that the Avengers left behind. Logic dictates that Tony should cooperate with the runaway superheroes, led by one Steve Rogers to get ahead of the situation. Too bad his trust issues don't agree with him. Too bad humans aren't actually machines who can turn emotions off at the flick of a butto-

    Oh. Hello Extremis.

    Summary

    Tony doesn’t hate Steve. Doesn’t hate any of them. Doesn't even come close.

    He only wishes he could.

    Wishes that, for once, he could hate someone as much as he’s always hated himself.

    As much as everyone else, with the few rare exceptions, have always seemed to hate him.

    At the very least he wishes he could just stop caring altogether.

    In this he would take the absence over the difference anyday.

    Summary

    Tony Stark shouldn't exist - It's a matter of circumstance that he's here right now. That he's dating Steve Rogers. That his life is actually OK - even if he isn't technically human anymore.

    Until time travel (or the tesseract) is a bitch and sends Howard Stark forward to 2014. (Tony wishes he was actually dead now...)

     

    (aka the one where Tony fixes his love life, adopts baby Spidey, the bots end up as his kids, Jarvis doesn't understand puberty, Pepper is a badass, Steve is a mother hen, Howard has no idea what's going on, Fury is a dick, Coulson is alive and Natasha - well, Natasha's just having a laugh. And a drink, at this point.)

    (Takes place a bit after avengers, after IM3, before AoU - yes, I'm changing the timeline. Basically, I let the plot bunnies run free, here.)

    Summary

    If given the chance, Tony Stark would sleep with any one of the Avengers. Collectively or individually. If anyone on the team offered, he’d probably say yes before they finished talking.
