    Summary

    One night, six months after he died, Jason Todd climbed out of his coffin and stumbled twelve miles through icy November rain. He ended up in a Gotham hospital, surrounded by people who most certainly knew Bruce Wayne from pictures, and possibly-- possibly-- his adopted son. Somebody was bound to recognize him, as crazy as it was.

    Six months after Jason Todd died, Bruce Wayne is barely functioning.

    It's about time they found each other again.

    Summary

    Second son of a house full of women, James Elizabeth Bennet is as devoted to the women in his life as their mother is to getting them married. Being the only male sibling gives him the entitlement of starting mischief as well as ending it, until the local estate for rent is finally claimed by a wealthy Charles Bingley alongside his sisters and a guest by the name of Fitzwilliam Darcy.

    As the middle and wealthy classes combine, old agonies resurface within both parties, alongside current and forbidden needs. For one such as Jamie, though, as marriage becomes a very real aspect in his sisters' futures, loneliness becomes a more present element of his.

    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

    “What the actual f*@k,” Fury glared incredulously, “are monkey’s doing here?”

    “They’re marmosets, Sir,” Hill corrected flatly as Tony looked between them all with glee.

    “They’re also with us,” Clint stated, not amused and clearly not giving two shits about anyone’s actual opinion of the matter as he stood there with a marmoset on his shoulder, and Natasha Romanov and the Winter Soldier backing him up.

    or: SHIELD handles things badly after Loki, and Clint doesn't take it well. Neither does Natasha.
