    Summary

    It feels like a hollowness, when Tony first realizes. First sees. And the first thought, the first thought his useless, traitorous, genius brain can come up with was "At least this time when he leaves, it wasn't your fault."

     

    (Or, threesome porn seasoned with a hearty dash of Tony angst and finished with a happy ending).

    Summary

    This is a companion fic/sequel to syriala’s amazing work, The Looking Glass Self. You should definitely check it out or reread it before starting this one ;)

    SUMMARY:

    The fall of the first domino, the flap of a butterfly’s wings, or James Buchanan Barnes. Only a time traveler could hope to figure out which one of those things had the greatest cascade of impacts on history.

    Good thing this story has one.

    Bucky survives HYDRA’s experimentation just to get stuck in the future (of an alternate dimension) for a week. He’s supremely thankful for the warnings he got there, that prevented the ‘Winter Soldier’ from ever becoming one of his titles, and prevented Steve from earning the nickname “Cap-cicle”. He’s pretty sure he’s dodged both those bullets. Now he just has to make it far enough into the future to meet his alternate-future-self’s fella, and maybe help out with an alien invasion or two along the way. Piece of cake, right?

    Summary

    He’s tired, so tired of waiting, tired of touches with no meaning, tired of holding his breath when Steve’s in the room, tired of keeping this love to himself.

    “I can’t—I can’t, if you don’t mean it.”

    ***

    Tony comes home exhausted after an SI event. Steve acts as welcoming committee. It's an old, careworn routine they've perfected over the years, but tonight ends up going in a very different direction.

    Summary

    They always talk about the calm before the storm.
    They always dream about the sunshine after the rain.
    But the truth is that it’s the middle, the moment the thunder strikes and the earth rattles, the moment it pours, that all becomes very, very clear.

    A story about those three years of silence, three years to be apart, three years to think it through.
    Three years to learn how to regret.

    Summary

    Strange was right that there was only ever one way to win this thing – and it STARTED with Tony dying.

    Of course, Steve had thought that was the end. Of everything. Completely broken, Steve ran and hid in the past after that... like he obviously always would.

    And, of course Steve found Tony again. And Tony helped him find himself, and find a purpose, and find a home, like he always did. Like it was meant to be. And it was.

    Steve was always meant to find this Tony – so that, together, they could undo EVERYTHING.

    Including everything they've just built...

    I'm tagging this for MCD just to be on the safe side, although, actually, that's complicated... But there is also a lot of cuddling and happy Steve/Tony in there too, for once!

    Further details in the notes, please feel free to message me if you want more details...

    Summary

    It's been two years since Siberia, and Tony Stark is still dealing with the fallout - personal and political. Life is quite complicated enough, without Bruce falling through a wizards roof yelling that Thanos is coming.

    Thor and Loki are stalling, but time is running out. The fate of the universe is at stake. Steve Rogers is back in the picture. Really, the last thing Tony needs is for their plan to go horribly wrong and bring Howard Stark forward in time.

    But his Dad *is* standing in his office, whether he likes it or not.

    So, it looks like Tony will have to fix that mess too.

    Summary

    Raleigh Becket used to be the up-and-coming chef to beat in the competitive cooking show world. Then, after beating four Iron Chefs in a row, he disappeared, and everyone forgot about him.

    Five years and four months later, he signs up for a new cooking show, The Cutting Board, because he and Yancy desperately need the money. The problem? The show's executives think to improve ratings by forcing him to pretend to be the gay ex-lover of current cooking wunderkind, Chuck Hansen, arrogant jerk extraordinaire.

    Insert all cooking metaphors you like. They'll probably apply.

    Summary

    When Chuck comes down with a virulent flu and makes himself impossible, Raleigh offers to step in to give Mako and Herc a breather, even though he's probably as welcome in Chuck's bunk as a new breed of kaiju. Chuck, however, is far more ill than he led everyone to believe, and Raleigh switches over to protective mode with a vengeance.

    Shenanigans ensue. Like, a book's worth of shenanigans. I'm seriously.

    Summary

    It’s not like Nate’s never been picked up in a bar before, but he doesn’t ever remember it going quite like this.

    In his experience, gorgeous, stacked, and insanely tall blondes who look like they should be gracing the cover of a Victoria’s Secret catalogue don’t generally saunter into grimy Cambridge dives populated by obnoxious Harvard grad students, walk straight up to his booth, plunk themselves down next to him without so much as a by-your-leave, and open with “I certainly hope that you’re not drinking Coors Lite or some similar lowbrow swill, or else I will have lost all faith in the pretentiousness of the dicksuck Ivy League communist elite of this country.”

    Summary

    At long last, and using Bucky's talent as a sharpshooter as leverage, Steve has convinced Tony that he can do more than illustrate his adventures in Marvel Magazine. It's for a critical mission too: take from Hydra a formula that is said to be able to create Super Soldiers. He never expected his first mission to also be a roller coaster for his love life.

    Summary

    When the mysterious group of vigilante assassins known only as 'The Avengers' are tipped off about the dirty secrets that lie within Stark Industries, Steve Rogers has his heart set on taking out Tony Stark for good in order to protect the rest of the world from his evil. He's seen the footage, after all- Stark is a man who fights only for himself. And of course, when a job arises as chief bodyguard for Stark, to protect him from the growing threat of an ominously infatuated stalker, the opportunity is way too good for him to miss out on. It's the perfect placement, and the perfect way to find out whether or not their tipoff is genuine.

    But as Steve falls into rank as the new bodyguard for Mr. Stark and he spends time getting to know and protect him, his initial hatred begins to falter and merge into something different, something far more terrifying than the prospect of killing the face of Stark Industries.

    Steve Rogers may just be falling in love with him instead.

    Summary

    “You’ve got war in your heart boy,” Howard sneers, “don’t ever try and pretend to be anything but what you are.”

    Tony feels the familiar burn of a flower mark being etched into his skin but he doesn’t look, doesn’t try and check to see what it is. Instead he keeps his eyes on Howard and his hands cupped around his bleeding mouth and nose.
