    Summary

    The MCU is terrible about showing realistic consequences for things that happen (especially for Steve Rogers). They just gloss over the (very serious) things that should/could have happened if the movies were to actually follow real world logic. So this is my attempt at bringing some realism to the MCU in the form of short unconnected snippets of AU scenarios.

    Prompts are always welcomed. If you have an idea of something you'd like to see, just tell me in the comments.

    Summary

    Tony can't get himself back from Siberia, and it takes the night for him to be rescued. While waiting to see if he'll die of hypothermia, he realises something for the first time. It wasn't that he failed because he hadn't tried hard enough. He had failed because he had tried too hard. His so-called team-mates had formed the habit of blaming Tony for everything because he had let them. He had shouldered the blame, let them attack him without consequence, and cleaned up after their mess, all so they could continue to feel self-righteous in peace. But it wasn't just him they were attacking, and saving the world didn't give them a free pass to be the very bullies that Steve claimed to fight against.

    Tony woke up in hospital, still sustained by the relief of his realisation. Things sucked, but they would get better. He was Tony Stark, and no challenge was too much for him. It was odd how much easier it was to plot when he actually did intend ways to manipulate the ex-Avengers into falling in line. And since that was what they seemed convinced he was doing all along, they didn't deserve a warning that it would now be true.

    Summary

    After the now-pardoned ex-Avengers settled back into the Compound, Steve finally went looking for Tony to have a discussion that was long overdue.

    The result of it wasn't what he was expecting--or wanting.
