Tales From the Tower

Series Metadata

Series Begun:
Series Updated:

The Avengers sitcom we all secretly want. Well, maybe the Avengers hour-long action dramadey we all secretly want.

Multi story, multi couple series. Series order is suggested reading order (not necessarily chronological order). You'd don’t have to read them all to read one, but they do compliment (and spoil) each other. Heavy Boots of Lead contains a series summary at the beginning if you want to skip to.

Started after Winter Soldier, generally AU, but we have adapted and reimagined Ultron and Civil War for this universe.
