    Summary

    Eight years ago, Tony Stark lay dying on the Afghan sand, the shrapnel of his own bombs having pierced his very heart, betrayed by his beloved godfather and left to die. Now, he lay helpless in a Siberian bunker, weighed down by his own dead armor, utterly wrecked by the friend he'd so naively trusted.

    But despite the world’s best efforts to break him, he lives. He comes back with a vengeance, stronger than ever, refusing to be defeated. Ever the mechanic, he fixes things. He builds a brighter future, a safer planet, and a loving family from the ashes of what he has lost.

    … or, my self-indulgent long-ass fic filled with my trademark bitterness and bias that asks the question: what would happen leading up to and during IW if Tony completely turns his back on the Rogue Avengers post-Civil War?

    Summary

    Thor takes a good look at Loki once he has hauled him back onto the quinjet, and realizes that there is something odd about Loki's eyes. Thor has grown and changed much in the last year, and no longer takes anything for granted. So he starts asking questions. It doesn't take long to figure out that Loki is not acting of his own free will.

    Tony Stark knows what it is to be forced to do as an enemy commands. Steve Rogers has seen the atrocities manipulative madmen are willing to commit. Clint, Logan, Bruce and Natasha have been subjected to said madmen. They all know what it is to lose themselves, and to seek redemption.

    Together, this band of broken heroes draws a line in the sand. They will not tolerate any tyrant, foreign or domestic. That includes Nick Fury and the WSC, who have used everyone on the team for their own aims. It includes Thaddeus 'Thunderbolt' Ross, who has hunted Bruce against all reason. It includes Odin, who treats his sons like commodities. And it includes Thanos, who has delusions of conquering Earth.

    Along the way, they learn to trust each other. They learn to help each other. They become a family.

    Summary

    The times when other people saw how much Tony and Peter cared about each other, the time when Tony admitted he cared about the kid, and the one when Peter realized it himself. Not necessarily in that order.

    Basically: Have a bunch of Marvel characters tell you how adorable Peter and Tony are around each other!
