    Summary

    Time travel was a tricky thing. Even with the aid of something like the Time Stone, it doesn’t always work out quite the way you’d expect.

    When Strange used the Time Stone to send Tony Stark back in time, he’d intended on sending Tony back in a way that would merge him with his past self, allowing him to be able to relive his life and use that extra time to prepare for the coming war.

    Only, things didn’t quite go according to plan. Instead of merging with his past self, the Time Stone simply took Tony and dropped him down into the world. And – as Stephen later explained – to keep the world from breaking under the paradox of two of the same beings, there were a few… minor changes.

    Not that she was going to let something like a genderswap get in the way of her plans. If anything, this worked better for Toni. She could do what needed to be done from the sidelines. Let Tony stay the face of Iron Man. Let him deal with the team, and the press, and everything else like that, while Toni was free to work from the shadows.

    She was going to do whatever it took to make sure her planet was protected this time around. Even if it meant allying herself with the very last person she’d ever expected.

    Summary

    Thanks to a curse placed on him long ago, the man now known as Spencer Reid has lived countless lifetimes, forced to live while unable to ever truly die. He’s lived through famines and wars, through pestilence and plagues. He’s lived and he’s loved – deeply and irrevocably. And he has also lost. He’s known the pain of losing those that become like family, as well as those that become so much more. For a long while the pain of it hardened him, pushing him to lock himself away so that he couldn’t be hurt again. That is, until the day that he crossed paths with a woman and child who changed his life forever.

    Now he’s here, working at the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit with a group of people who have become like family to him. They don’t know his secret and he’d much prefer to keep it that way. This is the closest that he’s let anyone in years... until the day he runs into someone from his past, someone he didn’t expect to ever see again.

    Now suddenly Spencer's peaceful little world is being tossed upside down by the presence of one feisty little archangel who seems determined to break down every single wall that Spencer's built around himself to keep his heart safe.

    Summary

    Based on the question "What would the MCU be like if Tony not only had magic, but a family around him right from the start that CARES?"

    The world we live in is a lie.

    That was a truth that Tony Stark had grown up knowing. He’d been raised aware of the world around him in a way that few people were. He knew about the human world – full of the mundane, people who went about their lives with no knowledge of the truth, who never saw what really existed underneath the masks that people wore. He knew about the Shadow world – a place full of horror and beauty, demons and angels, and a war as old as time.
    And he knew about the Downworld – the monsters and demons, werewolves and vampires, creatures that were thought to be stories, and magic.

    Tony grew up knowing about all three worlds, and how to survive in each one of them. He learned how to do business with any type of being he might come across, and how to play the part of a diplomat no matter the attitude of whoever he encountered. He knew how to play his part, to be who he needed to be when absolutely necessary, and more often than not choosing not to give a damn about it all.

    All that changed with one trip to the desert.
