    Summary

    “Inception,” Steve says, “is an art. It isn’t like extraction—it’s not that simple. It’s deeper than that. Rawer. More intimate. Extraction is just pulling knowledge out of someone’s mind. It’s easy. Impersonal. These days we’ve got it worked down to almost an exact science. But inception, inception’s different. It’s not exact. It’s not a guarantee.”

     

    “Oh god,” Tony says, and he’s rolling his eyes behind his sunglasses, Steve can tell. “It’s not a hot babe, Steve, stop talking about it like you want to bend it over the table and—”

     “If this is going to work,” Steve continues, ignoring Tony, “if you want it to stick, we need to know everything.”

     
    Or, The Avengers, Inception style.

    Summary

    It's 1944. Captain America lies dreaming, trapped in his own mind, and only Tony Stark can save him. But this is no mere Marvels adventure, as Tony finds when he enters Steve's dreams. Tony is confronted with dreams of superheroes, an imagined future fantastic and terrifying in equal parts, and a Steve Rogers who knows both too much and nothing at all about him. But they're just dreams. The war is what's real... isn't it?

    Summary

    When Steve succumbs to a malevolent attack that puts him permanently to sleep, the only way to wake him up is to unearth a technology that hasn't been used in twenty years.

    Welcome back to Dreamvision, Tony Stark.

     

    This is an MCU canon-compliant story that incorporates the science of Inception, rather than a straight-up AU or crossover.

    Summary

    Tony discovers Stane's betrayal while he's still being held captive. When he escapes, he sets out to ruin Stane as completely and ruthlessly as he can, playing up his PTSD and quitting his job to destroy Stane quietly from the outside. He also picks up a teaching job-all Pepper's fault-and oh, right, becomes a supervillain. Okay, that one was Tony's fault, but it was totally an accident.

    In the meantime, a certain Capsicle is defrosted a year early, and is assigned the task of capturing the notorious Iron Man. It's not going particularly well, if the embarrassingly high number of times he's been kidnapped in the past six months is any indication. When SHIELD decides to help him "adjust" by getting him a teaching job, Steve is skeptical; but then there's Tony, and Steve finds he doesn't mind the 21st century so much after all.
