    Summary

    Tony Stark may well be the richest man in America. In the depths of the Great Depression, that's no small claim. When a plot is hatched for him to take in an orphan for a week, everyone knows it's a publicity stunt. No one knows it better than Officer Steve Rogers, but he's got a job to do, and he's going to do it. Doesn't mean he's going to approve.

    Yes, it's an Annie AU.

    Yes. That Annie.

    Summary

    For my Marvel Trumps Hate auction

    My first winner, girlbehindtheglasses, requested a bunch of my OCs doing what my OCs do best: making very poor choices, aided and abetted by Tony and Stephen Strange.

    Magic abounds. Tony suffers.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Steve shook his head. “Let’s leave the theological debate of the nature of suffering until another day, because I’m not-” He tried for a smile, and it hung on his lips, uneven and broken. “I can’t do anything for him, Tony. And I’ve never been real… Good at forced inactivity.”

    “Yeah, but you can’t outflank everything,” Tony said. He lifted one hand, and Jarvis, attuned to his every move, his every gesture, began building the holograms up again. Light crested around his fingers like waves, forming itself into numbers, into words that barely made sense to Steve. He’d feel bad about that, but he was pretty sure that they didn’t make sense to anyone other than Tony, a scientific shorthand that he shared with his AIs. “Here’s a question for you. Is the lighthouse useless, just because it can’t go out to sea to fetch the ship?”

    Steve reached up, one finger ghosting across a diagram. It fit to his palm for an instant before falling into place. “It’s not the same.”

    Tony inhaled. “You are the rock we all set our anchors by,” he said, and Steve looked up. He found Tony looking directly at him, his eyes glowing blue with the reflected light. “It might not seem like much to you, Steve. But for the rest of us?” His lips twitched, an attempt at a smile, sad and hollow. “It is the only thing that matters. Even if you never did anything else. Even if you couldn’t. You are the beacon. You bring us home.”

    Steve opened his mouth. Closed it. Tony held out a hand to him. “He needs you. We all need you.”

    Tony’s hand was as familiar as his own, now. The flex of the bones and sinew, the stretch of his fingers, the hollow of his palm, Steve knew it all. And yet, every single touch startled him. Every time Tony tangled his fingers with Steve’s, it was a surprise. Every sweep of his thumb and squeeze of his palm and pull of his hand confused him, in the best possible way.

    Tony wrapped his free arm around Steve’s back, pulling him in, coaxing Steve into the shelter of his body. Steve buried his face in Tony’s shoulder, his breath shuddering in his chest. Tony’s fingers tightened, digging in, like he was afraid that Steve would somehow slip out of his grip. “Sorry,” Steve whispered against his neck.

    Summary

    Homecoming A/U.

    Ben and May divorced before Peter’s parents died, so when Ben is murdered Peter goes into foster care. It takes just a tiny taste of superpowers for Peter to decide he doesn’t want to put up with his horrible foster father anymore—the streets are infinitely more appealing. All he wants is to be Spider-Man anyway.

    So he leaves.

    Simple.

    Simple, that is, until Iron Man needs Spider-Man’s help. Peter isn’t about to turn down an opportunity to fight alongside Tony Freaking Stark, but he also isn’t going to let his hero know that his recruit is a fifteen-year-old homeless dropout. So they strike a deal. Peter will help Tony. In return, the mask stays on.

    And that’s when things get complicated.
