    Charles Xavier is orphaned at six years old. This series documents what would have happened if Tony E. Stark was Charles' godfather and took him in after his parents died. Set in the future (roughly the year 2023), the events of Iron Man onwards are altered by the presence of a (baby) telepath. And also, a robot Manny named David.

    (The series will span over the events of Marvel!verse from Iron Man onwards, displaced in the Prometheus future; and will include time-stamp and side fics along the way.)

    In this verse, Brian Xavier and Tony Stark were BFFs; and Xavier Laboratories + Stark Industries, in aggregate, is somewhat like Prometheus' Weyland Corp. But better. Because, Tony Stark, duh.

    In The Avengers, Natasha Romanova says "Love is for children." It's an expression of life as she knows it, and fits the harsh background most of the Avengers have experienced. Trouble is, people don't do very well without love. In particular it's impossible to form a good team if the members don't care about each other.

    So Phil Coulson comes up with a teambuilding exercise to resolve that problem. If love is for children ... then he'll arrange that experience for them. The result is an exploration of nonsexual ageplay to allow a group of very powerful, very broken people to patch up some of the gaps in their lives.

    Most of the stories are very sweet in tone and make for good comfort reading. However, canon gives these characters some very unpleasant pasts, and that comes up as they process the aftermath. So the tone does vary, and some stories are more intense than others. They deal with different characters, relationships, and sensitive issues.

    Some folks have avoided this series for fear that it goes into sexual territory; it doesn't. Same with embarrassment, very low on that.
