    Summary

    “A meeting,” Tony doesn’t even bother to hide his incredulity.

    “Yes.”

    “With the Galactic Empire,” he attempts to lighten his own mood with the joke, but the response he gets from Ross makes the blood freeze in his veins.

    “They call themselves the Unitary Galactic Communia, actually.”

    If Tony lets his silence speak for itself, it’s only partially because his throat is closing up on him at an alarming rate.

    “I know it sounds bad at first—“

    “Oh no no no, not at all,” Tony interjects quickly, “this is wonderful news. A communia. A unitary one. Sounds very… organized. They must be people who know how to keep an army. Of galactic proportions. This is great, really. Not debilitatingly frightening in the least.”

    ...
    Alternatively: the freshly pardoned Rogues have complaints, Tony is dead on his feet, and Steve has issues with the handsome alien lord who keeps offering Stark the literal universe.

    Summary

    HYDRA was weaponizing his helicarriers and Tony was pissed. He had already wiped out the Ten Rings. You would really think other terrorist groups would take note and not mess with his stuff; it was just self preservation at this point. Thank god Fury had had some sense to involve him, the very person that created the helicarriers, and could ground them before they even left the ground. The alternative, sending Captain America, the Black Widow, and a random member of the Air Force against the full force of Hydra, was not pleasant to consider.

    In a world where Tony Stark is involved in the first fight against HYDRA, he goes head to head with the Winter Soldier and is surprised to learn his identity. Tony tries to deescalate the fight and brings up Howard Stark’s friendship with Bucky Barnes. He is shocked by the revelation that the Winter Soldier killed him. The Soldier escapes the fight against Iron Man but can’t stop thinking about the encounter, especially because the man inside the suit, Tony Stark, has extensive surveillance out to find him. Wanting to learn more about the man pursuing him, the Soldier starts to surveil him back.

    Summary

    When Tony Stark stumbles across Bucky Barnes in a back alley one night, all he wants is truth and a little closure. But the truth is dangerous. It opens doors to old lives and secrets long buried. Tony slowly comes to realise that what he needs may not be closure, but rather the unique whirlwind of chaos that is James "Bucky" Barnes.

    Summary

    {{ From the Library of Infinity }}

    Tony finds himself a decade in the past, having just revealed to the world that he's Iron Man. He upgrades JARVIS, and together they work to put out a series of fires, new and remembered, while also attempting to figure out a way to defeat Thanos.

    Or: Tony's not the hero type. To suggest otherwise would be outlandish and fantastic, clearly. Yet somehow, he's the one that's responsible for saving the universe.
