    Apparently I need a dumping grounds for the random CACW-related inspiration that hits me. No idea what all will come of it, and I don't plan to make everything related.

    Summary

    It was reluctance to let one of his finest inventions ever out of his grasp that made him take a couple days over a week to send the arm to Pepper’s office. But all things considered, Tony figured that sending finest prosthetic that had ever come into existence--literally grasping an olive branch--was one of the classiest gifts he’d ever given. He’d included a note and everything.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    How can I not bookmark this when I left a 3-comment long review on the final chapter of this?

    This turned out to be the fic I didn't know I needed. Great character dynamics and a really, really well-done coming-together/resolution between Tony and Steve. It's really hard for me in general to reconcile those two in the wake of canon ca:cw, but it's done believably herein. It's not like that's the focus, but it makes such an impact for me. Plus Bucky plays a part in that and it's great.

    Also, there's a ukulele. It's ridiculous to me and yet it works so damn well.

    Summary

    Didn’t notice. Right. Sure. Two brilliant minds, two super spies, and a god didn’t notice when the chattiest man they knew stopped making sound. They just seemed happier than before. Brighter and more cheerful than before. They just seemed like they were more comfortable with him around when he was stone silent.

    Fuck it.

    He knew they noticed.

    And he knew they liked him better this way.

    Summary

    It took a hit to the head for Steve to realize that something was very wrong with the way the team was treating Tony, but it took the help of Dr. Strange to figure out that, even if she didn't consciously intend for it to happen, it was Wanda's fault.

    Summary

    Taking a shot at filling my own prompt on avengerkink:

    In an AU, instead of taking out Tony's arc-reactor, Obadiah Stane kidnapped Tony, faked his death in a "lab accident", imprisoned him, and forced him to design weapons for Stane.

    Bruce is going about his day hacking Stark Industries to learn more about the Hulkbuster weapons when he comes across some discrepancies in the code--subtle things, like inefficient loops in otherwise streamlined code, bizarre variable names, or incorrect comments.

    Intrigued, he goes through all the code of SI's weapons industry, comes up with a pattern, and finds the messages Tony has been hiding in the code.

    And then he goes and busts Tony out. Lots of badassery, including on Tony's part--he may be defeated, but he's not broken.

    So Bruce and Tony are BAMF in this - but honestly Pepper (and Happy!) being BAMFs are what makes me happiest. :D

    Summary

    One year after the Civil War, Bucky Barnes is pardoned, thanks in large part to Tony Stark, and given a chance to return in order to remove the triggers in his head, courtesy of the upgraded BARF tech. Bucky is ready to heal and make amends, but can he atone for all the damage done?

    The path forward seems daunting and there are challenges ahead, but may be both he and Tony can find hope in the most unexpected place - each other.

    Because no matter how cold a winter, spring always follows.
