    Summary

    For the Tony Stark 2018 Bingo on tumblr, prompt 'present tense'.

     

    And this. Whatever this was. He had felt it then, its tendrils snaking across space maliciously. Not actual physical tentacles but something about the presence puts him in mind of them as he stares at the swirling storm in the distance. Whatever it is puts him in mind of words like ‘slithering’, ‘creeping’, ‘crawling’…

     

    After a bizarre nightmare Tony wakes to find the Universe under siege from a threat from beyond realms.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    It isn’t about power. It’s about resilience. It’s sheer bloody-mindedness weaponised. The embodiment of a spirit that keeps asking, “and then what?” Loki may be a god, but to Tony his resistance feels so very human. He is not deflecting, not withstanding in the typical godlike fashion of shiny armour and skin more durable than diamond.

    He is suffering. And he stands before these things and laughs, dares them to cause pain beyond his ability to survive it.

    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.

    “Damn – we are an attractive bastard, aren’t we?” She threw him a wink and put her hands on her hips, making her movements deliberate as she gave him an up-and-down. “I can see why we got our playboy status. I mean, you’re me and I still kind of want to drop my panties right here.”

    Off to the side, Stephen gave a low “Oh Lord.”

    It was Tony that she was watching, though. Her crude words had been deliberate, as had the teasing, and she was pleased to see they’d had the effect she wanted. Tony startled, and then his whole face transformed into a broad grin. “Oh yeah, that’s definitely me.”

    Summary

    Loki is dead. He died a good, heroic death. He is sure he deserved his place in Valhalla. So it's pretty disappointing when he finds himself in Hel, being greeted by the sister he never wanted to see again.

    A sister with a deal he just cannot refuse. Being brought back to life in exchange for saving the whole universe and making Hel a little bit less crowded? Oh, yes, please. All he needs to do is to be a good guy and everything will be fine.

    But being a good guy is so tiresome and Loki is, above all, a God of Mischief...

    The next second he gasped, a wide grin spreading on his face. He flexed his fingers, moaning softly.

    “Uhm… Loki?”

    “Shut up. Oh, this feels good. I didn’t expect it would feel so good.” The grin grew wild and hungry. Loki opened his eyes, bright and shining with inner light. “All that power at my command...”

    “Oh, fantastic,” Thor muttered. “Please don’t tell me I have to kill you too.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Could use a good proofread, but otherwise a satisfying fix-it fic for Infinity Wars.
