    Summary

    When Tony Stark watched Peter Parker fade to dust, his entire world collapsed around him. He failed the kid; the boy he realized he loved like a son, was gone.
    He closes his eyes.
    The next time he opens them, however, he's suddenly back in 2011, a day shy from his birthday and dying from palladium poisoning. What. The. Fuck.

    A Time Travel Fix-It fic where I go almost all the way back to the beginning and fix (most) of the horrible shit that happened to the Avengers in the last 7 years. And Tony Stark's in the middle of it.

    (There’s a Spotify Playlist for this fic!)

    Summary

    “You can die of a broken heart — it's scientific fact — and my heart has been breaking since that very first day we met. I can feel it now, aching deep behind my rib cage the way it does every time we're together, beating a desperate rhythm: Love me. Love me. Love me.”
     
    Tony's heart gives up, and he thinks about giving up right along with it.

    Summary

    Tony's mind is a chaotic mess but he remembers the moment—remembers his death, remembers the red hot pain and Peter screaming, Rhodey rushing to his side. How he knew he’d never see Pepper again—but they’d fixed it. They’d fixed the world, erased the lost time, set things right—and the kid was back. The kid was crying, the kid hated him for doing what he did, but he was back. He was alive.

    Tony Stark was dead. But now he’s breathing again, trying to think, gasping, hands tracing the box surrounding him, covering him, suffocating him.

    He’s in a coffin. He’s under the ground. He’s under the fucking ground.

    (Tony Stark dies defeating Thanos. But then he comes back to life. He has to find out how, why, and how to live again. And how to deal with the changes in the people he's coming back to.)

    Summary

    Tony's having a hard time remembering how he crossed the distance from the grassy knoll to Peter, and he can't really recollect how his hands ended up on either side of the kid's face. Before he knows it, he's gripping the kid's shoulders just as tightly as Rhodey had gripped his own, his hands trembling. "Pete, kid, c'mon. Say something. If you don't say something I'm gonna seriously lose it here. Don't fucking do this."

    A pair of headphones rattle around Pete's neck. Tony's shaking him.

    Maybe he'll come to, like a half-drowned puppy you pull out of the gutter.

    Then just as suddenly he's not shaking him, because Quill is prying his hands back from the kid protectively, and Strange's palm is pushing Tony's shoulder to put some distance between him and the boy. Everyone knows Peter is a special case, for him. A special mission set aside to complete. He promised May. He promised Peter. He held him while he disintegrated. He washed him down a sink and apologized in multitudes. Someone seethes, "What do you mean, he didn't come back? What do you mean?" and he recognizes it belatedly as his own.

    *******

    Everyone comes back, when the snap is undone. Or, well — almost everyone.
