    Summary

    Maria Carbonell was born and raised in a friendly desert community where the sun was hot, the moon was beautiful, and mysterious lights passed overhead on a regular basis.

    This...changes things.

    Summary

    The one where it's a tiny misunderstanding, really. Could've happened to anyone.

    [In which the world domination's an accidental byproduct of business as usual in Stark Industries, and JARVIS is so, very grounded because Tony didn't sign up for this, how was this his life, where did he go wrong in his life choices and stop laughing, Strange, dammit!]

     

    TWiFFON and FtOS happen concurrently, but FtOS focuses on the more behind-the-scenes portions of TWiFFON, the things that might've been missed otherwise.

    Summary

    The world keeps pushing him, demanding, because what he did wasn't enough. Genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, but that wasn't enough, wasn't ever enough.

    Tony Stark was tired. But he had a planet to protect, even if everyone laughed at him whenever the prospect of alien invasions was brought up. He could count on one hand how many people he could trust, which was disheartening but then, what else was new?

     

    Or,

     

    In which Tony does not, in fact, intend to take over the world.

    ...unfortunately, everyone else missed that particular memo.

     

    [gradual divergence from canon, starting at the end of Iron Man 3. In which it's Tony's self-awareness, rather than his support system, that becomes a cryptid sometime during Phase II.]

    Summary

    Six months after Natasha joins SHIELD, they give her a key to an apartment. Natasha gives it back, because she has a room on base, and why would she want to move out?

    Apparently, that was not the response the psychologist was looking for.

    Summary

    “They’re calling about an orphaned boy,” Pepper says, her confused frown clear in her voice. “His whole family was killed in a car crash, and when they asked him if there was anyone he could stay with, he gave them your name. He says you know him.”

    Tony finally looks up, frowning a little.

    “Uh, ok,” he says, and thinks that it’s probably some random kid he signed a poster for once who’s hoping to be adopted by Iron Man. “Not likely, but whatever. Who’s the kid?”

    Pepper glances back down at her notes.

    “Harley Keener,” she says.

    Tony falls off his chair.

    [Or, how Tony Stark came to adopt Harley Keener.]
