    Summary

    Tony doesn’t entirely remember why the night played out like this, but all he knows now is he is falling towards the ground miles away from the city. With teeth in his neck, fingernails in his sides, a body wrapped around his back, and gashes all over. His wings are also damaged.

    All he knows is he wants more bloodshed, and so that’s exactly what happens.

    Summary

    Tony's alcoholism is going too far when Pepper decides to step up and say something, giving him the ultimatum, her and their relationship or alcohol. Tony doesn't know all the variables in the equation and waits until it's too late to do something to help himself for once.
    Set pre-Ironman and leads up to the movie, canon divergent.
    (Also worth noting that Pepperony will be endgame, pun intended.)

    Summary

    After Afghanistan, Tony Stark tried to be a good man, and his life went to hell because of it. He was fine with it, though, if only because he was sure he was working towards a better world. He didn't care about the abuse he suffered because lives were being saved.

    Then Thanos came. He came, and he snapped his fingers and half the universe was gone.

    By some miracle or damnation, Tony is sent back to Afghanistan. He's grateful for his second chance, and he won't squander this one.

    What was the phrase again, "Merchant of Death: Yes; Iron Man: Not Recommended"? That sounds right. He'll rewrite the book if it's wrong.

    Summary

    Tony was no stranger to mental illness.

    Alcoholism. Depression. PTSD. Panic Attacks. A colorful range of different phobias.

    Those who didn't know him better *cough the former Rogues cough* would say narcissistic.

    But that was just because they never could see through any of the masks he put up to protect himself. Never understood the burden of his intelligence. How his mind never turned off. How the hundreds of thousands of possibilities haunted his every thoughts. How not even the alcohol succeeded in slowing it down.

    So he proudly labeled himself as a "Mad Scientist".

    Tony owned his demons. Accepted them.

    But unlike most people all his demons seem to come back to haunt him in one form or another. Though to be fair he attracts the mentally unhinged and unstable like flies to honey...

    Being haunted by his past demons was nothing new...But he was fine.

    Maximoff was just getting into all their heads again. Messing with them.

    He was "mad" but he wasn't crazy. He wasn't!

    ......Right?

    Summary

    "Tony isn’t sure what changed the Mad Titan’s mind. Bruce had been convinced that his goal was to wipe out half of life in the galaxy. Maybe the power of the Infinity Stones had been too alluring and Thanos couldn’t resist going a little farther. Maybe that had always been his plan and Bruce had just gotten it wrong."

    When Thanos snapped his fingers, he destroyed all but two life forms. Himself and Tony Stark.

    Three years later, Tony finds a way to go back, to fix things.

    It's dangerous, but he has nothing to loose and everything to gain.

    Tony Stark closes his eyes.

    10 years previously, 7000 miles away, in a cave surrounded by terrorists, he wakes up.

    We're calling up to arms

    Summary

    In which Tony Stark really is as evil as everyone says he is, the Winter Soldier is a millennial who listens to the Arctic Monkeys, and why anyone decided to put the guy with 70 years worth of assassinations listed on his resume on non-lethal missions is beyond either of them.

    Either way though, Winter’s getting a promotion.

    Summary

    When Tony returned from Afghanistan, JARVIS created a folder full of possible scenarios if Tony became a villain.

    Not a single one factored in a teammate's betrayal, let alone an unexpected side-effect of mixing Extremis and magic.

    Tony Stark knew what was out there. He had seen humanity at its worse. And you know what? He was going to save the world, no matter the cost.

    Summary

    To be honest, when Tony said that he could save himself, he didn't think it would be this literal.

    Summary

    It's the stuff of fairytale romanticism turned reality; soulmates sharing skin is an oversimplification of what happens between people to whom the universe claims were made for one another, but it isn't entirely wrong. What appears on one's skin, will appear on the other's. At least in terms of scars and bruises.

    Tony pities whoever shares his skin.

    Summary

    Dr. Strange looks at the world after Thanos and, faced with its seemingly irreparable brokenness, breaks his own oath. Tony, Stephen, and Loki go back in time for one more chance - an intentional choice, because they are each other's insurance against repeating the same mistakes. Tony wakes up shortly before the Stark Expo with the reactor's palladium core still poisoning him. Stephen wakes up with undamaged hands and a flourishing medical career. Loki wakes up in Asgard one day before Thor's coronation.

    "Do I dare disturb the universe? / In a minute there is time / for decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse."

    [ Yet another take on that time travel fic with lots of worldbuilding, hand-wavey comic book science, political intrigue, inventing, nerding out, and a broken Tony trying to fix a broken world - but this time he's not alone. ]

    Summary

    The bridges are burning, the heat's on my face
    Making the past an unreachable place
    Pouring the fuel, fanning the flames
    I know, this is the point of no return

    Bruce was right... they were just a chemical mixture. A bomb set to explode.

    Tony sat in the wake of it all...

    No he still had a promise to fulfill... his life wouldn’t be put to waste.

    Watch out world Tony ‘Fucking’ Stark is back... Iron Man Lives Again

    Summary

    The last thing Tony remembers is dying atop the Stark Industry’s building after Pepper blew up the arc reactor. The next thing he knows is, that he’s back with the Ten Rings in the cave. And – it all is suspiciously familiar.

    Summary

    “Have you, in the past month since our last check in, suspected you were seeing, or hearing things that were not real?”
    “Do tell,” Steve says with exaggerated curiosity.
    “No,” Tony lies. Steve laughs, loud, boisterous, and jagged like broken glass.

    Summary

    Sentience: The capacity to feel, perceive, or experience subjectively. In other words, the ability to feel.

    In philosophies of animal welfare and rights, sentience implies the ability to experience pleasure and pain.

    Sentience is also a minimalistic way of defining consciousness.

    ---

    Tony will get better, be better.

    He'll improve.

    He'll evolve.

    He'll upgrade.

    Summary

    Tony knew that Loki’s fury wasn’t directed at him by the way the god's familiar, comforting magic continued to lightly caress and assess him. This fury, white-hot and vicious, was directed elsewhere and he almost pitied its target.
