  1. Summary

    It’s a fundamental constant, that Tony Stark is a billionaire and a genius and philanthropist and we’ve heard this time and time again over the movies. Nobody in canon seems to appreciate just how much of a bullet they dodged, though [not so much a bullet as a Jericho missile]- that Tony, being Tony, focused on a better, brighter future, and not, you know, world domination. [It would have been so easy, at any point.]

    But then again, there’s so many times when Tony Stark could have thrown in the towel and made the world a far worse place, long before the good Captain even got defrosted- and even more so after.

    [Even if heroism is as integral as genius is to his character, it's still a fun thought exercise.]

  2. Summary

    In which all the tampering the Doctor did with time and space itself had consequences; specifically, the lines between universes got slightly smudged between fiction and reality.

    Or, in which Martha Jones replaces John Watson. Cue divergences.

    In which Tony Stark pulls an Itachi, Ross is Danzo, and the blonde lead is trying to save the day through the power of love and friendship, as per usual.

    [Except, this genius also has some people on his side, that last fight never happened, and the ticket to the Feels Express is free.]

    (also, that was probably too much of a Naruto parallel I made, but if the shoe fits? Because we even have a 'dark haired, runaway, one-person-army with a Tragic Backstory that the Heroically Noble Blonde's chasing after', that has ties to the death of the resident genius' family, and I am getting waaaay too invested in this.)

    Summary

    From the ground, Tony squints at Thanos and the young heroes the villain is chasing through the city. “Are they…” Tony begins.

    Steve, being lifted onto a gurney by starstruck paramedics, laughs a little. “Leading the man who almost destroyed the Earth in a wild goose chase?” In the sky, Johnny Storm sticks his tongue out at Thanos, ducking and weaving out of the villain’s grasp. “Yeah. I think they are.”

    Summary

    Nobody wins.

    From a purist Jedi pointo of view they lost as soon as the war started and from a general Jedi point of view they passed acceptable terms for ‘victory’ a long time ago.

    But the war ends and most of them live.

    AU to Year two of the Clone Wars, in which Domino Squad lives, Padme got pregnant much earlier than in canon, Obi-Wan visited Utapau at least once before Episode III and a clanker who wanted off the battlefield sold something he probably shouldn't have sold, or really should have depending on your point of view, to an enterprising journalist and changed the course of history.

    O.O I can't even. Feat. BAMF!Mamabear!Clones, the mother of all fix-its [almost], a Star Wars Watergate, and the results of what happens when Obi-Wan [aka the voice of reason for the majority of Anakin's shenanigans, as well as sounding board for the rest of the Order and clones] is...indisposed.

    [a.k.a. the fic that addresses just how dysfunctional the Jedi are, and that Obi-Wan is canon's favorite chew toy, even more than the alleged Chosen One. Except this time, people notice.]

    Between Padme, Anakin, and the clones, the galaxy doesn't stand a chance.

    Summary

    Finn is a trained soldier, they forget that sometimes. An assassination attempt on General Organa's life does not go according to flimsy plan, as the ex-stormtrooper had been with the general at the time. Some people in the resistance still doesn't trust the ex-trooper but does Leia?

    Poe's rather pleased about it all, at least.

    Finn's bada**, even (especially) with how he doesn't show it.

    In which Mycroft may or may not be using the residents of 221B Baker Street as a training exercise for his agents.

    [Or punishment.]

    [Possibly both.]

    [Let's be honest, it's Mycroft. Definitely both.]
