    Summary

    The war is over, everyone is back and the Avengers are together, working like a well oiled machine once again. Right? But what if a different Mechanic comes for a visit? What cracks and rusty cogs will he see? And what troubles will he bring from his own workshop?

    Or: It might be the first time Tony hated science right alongside magic.

    Summary

    When Steve gets invited to a formal party with the government, Fury tells him he can bring a plus one of his choosing. While listening quietly in the corner, Tony heaves a sigh of relief because the team could really do with some positive publicity and any of the Avengers are a good choice for Steve. Tony just wants Steve to be happy after all, even if he knows Steve's gonna pick Natasha. He knows Steve doesn't like him and he's aware there's never going to be anything more between them. They're barely even friends really.

    So of course he's absolutely shocked when a gold filigree letter rests in his palms two days later. He's the worst person for this.

    Why on earth did Steve choose him?

    Summary

    Tony Stark isn’t one to hate Doms. No, he would just much rather prefer to live his life happily without someone constantly hovering over him. But of course, things never work out for him, because the next thing he knows, the law is forcing him to go to a stupid Matchmaking ceremony. And to make things even worse, he gets paired with two Doms. As if one wasn’t enough.

    Summary

    ATTN: Stark Industries has created its newest tech, the Synergy device. What does the device do, you ask? I’m sorry, but only a select group of people are privileged with that information. I can tell you, however, that one of its unintended side effects resulted in bringing together the most unlikely pairing…

    Alternative Universe where the MCU Avengers are a group of ordinary people (professions notwithstanding) who come together to form Project Synergy. Steve Rogers, a law student, meets Tony Stark, a famous tech celebrity. The two form a serious—and at times, intense—bond, but past issues threaten to tear this relationship apart.

    This work is illustrated with Stony fanart by negativesd09 on tumblr! Check out their work; it’s so good! I’m so glad to have their work associated with this fanfic.

    Also, this work updates every Sunday and is accompanied with a running playlist where you can find the songs mentioned in the story.

    Summary

    Tony Stark knew who his soulmates were since he was 4, the Red Silver and Blue Shield cruelly marked on him. It was one of the few things that Howard Stark couldn’t touch or change, so Howard made his marks in other ways.

    It wasn’t like Steve or Bucky would ever know, they were dead.

    Tony had been dealt the worst hand fate could think up, someone somewhere obviously hated him. He had two soulmates who’d been dead for 25 years before his birth. A father who was in the running for worst parent of the century. The names of two men he couldn't help but love, but Howard made sure he was reminded at every turn that he was worthless, Captain Rogers and Sergeant Barnes would've never spared him a 2nd glance.

    By the time he was 12 Tony was glad Steve and Bucky were dead, they were better off having never known him, he'd have only disappointed them.

    He'd given up the fantasy of having a true or real romantic relationship long ago, hidden behind the mask he played into the media, they were going to say what they wanted about him, he'd learned to not care.

    Until Captain Rogers showed up, he didn't care; he couldn't. So why did it hurt so much "Big man in a suit of armor. Take that off what are you?"

    Summary

    Tony Stark is an Omega and he hates it. Plain and simple. He takes suppressants and blockers and every exsisting chemical that can help him hide his sub-genre. He avoids Alphas like his life depends on it. Needless to say, he never shared a heat with an Alpha. All his life he went on pretenging to be a Beta, and nobody knows the truth nor the reasons about his issues with his sub-genre. Nobody still alive, at least.
    But then -
    Then they thawed out from arctic ice an old war hero.
    Steve Rogers was an Omega, then the serum turned him into an Alpha. And into a super-soldier with an enhanced sense of smell. He can smell the lie on Tony - quiet litterally. But you know, Steve Rogers belong to an era where Alphas were real gentlemen. So, without really know what he's doing, he start courting Tony. And he do it like a good Alpha would do back in his days - like omega!Steve dreamed to be courted.
    But how will the elusive Omega react to this?

    [A.K.A. the A/B/O toothrooting Stony nobody asked for, but I'm obsessed with it from years, so I have to get it out from my head.]

    Summary

    Summary

    “And you seek to prevent all of this from happening again?”

    “Yes,” she returns simply. “After dealing with a megalomaniac that’s hell bent on my blood, though.”

    He blinks repeatedly, wondering if he actually heard her correctly. “What?”

    ***

    When they're the last two left with the Realms collapsing around them, Loki uses dangerous magic to send Evelyn back to the beginning to do it all over again. The Soul Magic has unexpected side effects, though. Evelyn blames it on her damned Potter Luck. With far more allies than originally expected, she and Loki set out to stop the end of the Nine Realms before it even starts.

    Summary

    Touch-starvation, colloquially known as ‘skin hunger’ occurs when a person doesn’t receive enough physical contact, or touch, from other people.
    People who are touch deprived are more lonely and less happy, and more likely to experience stress or depression than people with fulfilled touch requirements. These people tend to have less social support and experience more mood and anxiety disorders. They are also more likely to experience alexithymia, a condition that impairs ability to express and interpret emotions. They are also more likely to have preoccupied or fearful-avoidant attachment style and therefore are less likely to form secure attachments with others in their lives. Research has shown that people need at least 8 meaningful touches a day to maintain health.

    Tony freaking Stark does not need a hug of all things, to function. He was perfectly fine without human contact. And with lying to himself. So he pushed on, ignoring the screaming in his cells and the tremors coursing through his body.

    Or, Tony is touch-starved and too stubborn to ask for a hug

    (5 times Tony needed a hug and one time he actually fucking asked)

    Summary

    “If you want—and feel free to say no, everyone and their mothers know that I’m the queen of offering too much where I’m not wanted—but, if you want…” Toni hesitates, worrying her bottom lip between her teeth for a moment, and then continues, “well, that’s the longest period of uninterrupted sleep I’ve had since last week, which was also with you, and—twice is a coincidence, but maybe we could test to see, uh, see if it’s a pattern? Only if you want; I’m not trying to guilt you into it. In fact, forget I said anything. This is a horrible idea. I’m just going to leave—”

    She’s stopped by his fingers slipping into her palm as he's suddenly standing in front of her. “Okay,” he whispers.

    The tension that had built up in her body releases all at once and she looks up into his eyes, the ever present churn of emotion swirling enchantingly, tenderly.

    “Okay,” she responds, and his hand glides from hers as he turns away. She aches with the missing weight.

    Summary

    Tony loved Pepper because she made him feel. Feel! Feel! Feel! The numbness was no more and he became (perhaps unhealthily) attached to Pepper because of it. Pepper became what the alcohol used to be for him, but better. One addiction replaced with another.

    Summary

    Tony Stark knows Captain America is his soulmate. He also knows that Steve wouldn’t and couldn’t ever want him, especially when Tony finds out that Bucky Barnes is Steve’s soulmate, and Steve chooses his brainwashed best friend over whatever tentative thing they’d kindled between them. But it’s okay. Tony understands. He’s never the first choice. Howard drilled that into his head enough over his childhood. Although that doesn’t make it hurt any less.
    Or where Tony is self-sacrificing, Steve is oblivious, and there is a distinct lack of communication between our three boys.

     

    Basically, I’ve fallen deep, deep, deep down into this fandom, and need more hurtTony. And also more soulmate fics. And even after gorging myself on every one I could find, it still wasn’t enough and I had to write my own.

    Summary

    Tony's been struggling after the regression took place, he's drowning and no one noticed till he dissociated and walked over ten miles away from his home. The team take it well enough but after his adventure out side the poor guy seems to be coming down with a nasty cold.

    So now, on top of just explaining that he doesn't know how to handle being cared for and looked after he's stuck having to be cared for whilst he lays awkwardly on Bucky's lap like a sick toddler and he doesn't enjoy it....really. Even if it's the safest he felt since the real Jarvis existed.

    Wanda does not approve.

    Summary

    tony stark is rich and popular and an arrogant asshole. in other words: his iq rivals einstein's, he's slept with most of his "friends" at least once, and he's so fucking lonely that sometimes he wakes up in the middle of the night and cries into the cold sheets on the empty side of the bed.

    it's no different at SHIELD boarding school, at first. half the student body hates him, half want to be him, nothing new. that is, until tony accidentally breaks james barnes's prosthetic arm, and he suddenly finds the most vulnerable pieces of himself surfacing whether he wants them to or not.
