    Summary

    Tony has absolutely no interest in this marriage but his mom seems to think this is a good idea. “I worked hard on finding someone you would actually get along with, Tony. I’m sure you will be happy,” she says.

    Happy with someone in some random foreign nation that he’s never met before? Yeah, he gives his mom an incredulous look for that. “Something tells me this isn’t going to end well, but it’s only the rest of my life,” he mumbles.

    *

    T’Challa isn’t exactly sure about this marriage but his father insisted and he maybe loves his father a little too much given that he agreed to this.

    Summary

    Tony is pulled out of his funk after the Civil War by actual space aliens when they come to warn him of an impending attack. Now he's building a new team, going on adventures with his new space friends, and generally just moving on.

    When Team Cap comes back, they'll find things are different than how they left them.

    A salty 'Tony doesn't need the team back' post Civil War fic.

    Summary

    Nobody knew of Captain America’s return.

    Unfortunately, that included Peter Parker.

    (or: five times Team Cap screwed up + one time they did okay)

    Summary

    I’m a fan of Death of the Author, “that an author's intentions and biographical facts (the author's politics, religion, etc) should hold no weight in determining an interpretation of their writing. This is usually understood as meaning that a writer's views about their own work are no more or less valid than the interpretations of any given reader. Intentions are one thing. What was actually accomplished might be something very different.”

    I’ve been deeply suspicious of Marvel’s interview cannon in particular, ever since “Dead Mean Dead,” announced right after a storyline where it was necessary for the audience to believe that Magneto’s nth death was important and meaningful. And then “Oh wait, Dead Means Dead unless there’s a really good story to tell” announced not long after it was revealed that Magneto had never been dead in the first place.

    I simply loathe Interview Cannon when it contradicts what actually made it into the script.

    Summary

    When billionaires need rescuing, who better than their comrades in fortune? Tony has helped save Lex from terrible spouses (seriously, Lex needs a dating sabbatical. And possibly a professional matchmaker who can screen for criminals.) and Bruce from terrible investments (no, Bruce, a candy company should not be putting drugs into the sweets. Even nice drugs. Really.) When a Code 22 sounds, the billionaire bros leap into action, only this time it's Tony who needs their help. He's gone off to Siberia after the Winter Soldier and Captain America, who have smashed up several cities in their wake. Naturally, the bros bring in Wonder Woman to help save the day.
