Still, he throws himself into helping his best friend recover, and getting his entire old team pardoned, including Bucky Barnes. The world needs them, more than they need him.

    Summary

    "I'm here to kill you, Terminator," Tony said slowly, "does that compute?"

    The soldier looked up at him with wide blue eyes and no expression. "Okay."

    Tony froze. "Okay," he echoed. "I tell you I came here to kill you and your response is 'okay'?"

    "I am being decommissioned," the soldier said, and for one horrible moment Tony thought he actually seemed relieved. "I understand. I will comply."

    (Or; Tony learns the Winter Soldier killed his parents and goes on a search for revenge, but ends up learning how to heal instead)

    Summary

    Tony isn't a healthy man. He's fine with that, really. It makes perfect sense. Unfortunately, he has a job to do that kind of has his health as a major requirement. So he unmakes himself, remakes the Accords, protects every single child super that enters his field of view, and hopes ferociously that the Avengers never come back to the US. He doesn't spend any time at all rebuilding Bucky Barnes' life. Not a single second. Anything he does that contributes to him is simply an accident.

    Bucky is a patient man. It's ok if Tony wants to ignore him for now. He won't be able to forever.

    (Somewhere in the world, a sense of dread crawls up the back of Tony's spine)

    Summary

    The world keeps pushing him, demanding, because what he did wasn't ever enough. Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, but that wasn't enough, wasn't ever enough.

    Tony Stark was tired. But he had a planet to protect, even if everyone laughed at him whenever the prospect of alien invasions was brought up. He could count on one hand how many people he could trust, which was disheartening but then, what else was new?

     

    Or,

     

    In which Tony does not, in fact, intend to take over the world.

    ...unfortunately, everyone else missed that particular memo.

     

    [gradual divergence from canon, starting at the end of Iron Man 3. In which it's Tony's self-awareness, rather than his support system and/or self-confidence, that becomes a cryptid sometime during Phase II.]
