Since seeing the latest of the Marvel franchise, I am really craving a good Tony/Steve fic. I'm a huge fan of Tony!Angst, but I prefer it to be as...in character as possible for the characters involved? It doesn't have to be post!Civil War.
I was hoping someone would be able to recommend me a really good Steve/Tony fic with some Tony!Angst (secret relationship, internalized homophobia, etc.) that centers on the relationship, particularly if it is Steve that is "hurting" Tony. Not a premise that just bashes Steve, but some legitimate angst that could (and totally would) occur between the characters if they were shagging and/or in a relationship would be awesome.
I'm pretty familiar with most of the older classics ("In Which Tony Builds Himself Some Friends..." is a wonderful fic), but I'm sure I've missed a few. I would prefer if it did follow the movie canon to an extent, as in not complete AU. Anyone have any recommendations? Lay it on me!
Thank you so much!
It sounds hokey as hell, but it wasn't, it was a great fic. Any assistance you could offer in tracking it down would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Edited to add: And dinara_n found it. It's You Know I Dreamed About You by Napricot. And it's just as excellent as I remembered. Thank you, thank you!
Honourable mention goes to janne_d, who suggested 20th Century Limited by Speranza. Not the fic I was looking for, as it happens, but also a good fic which I hadn't previously read.
I'm looking for a story that I don't remember too many details about, BUT what I do remember is that Loki, who was raised Jotunn is on the run with one of his older brothers who is abusive and injures Loki multiple times while they're looking for shelter. I'm not so sure on why they're on the run - I'm assuming that Laufey was overthrown at some point and the royal family is being hunted/executed. Loki's older brother debates with himself on at least one occasion about whether or not he should just kill Loki to lighten his burden (and because Loki is such a weakling, he'll probably end up dying anyway). But Loki's older brother thinks that killing Loki would be a kindness. They have a very weird relationship.
I'm 95% sure that the story was slash (since that's the bulk of what I read), but I have no recollection of the pairing. Thanks to anyone who can find this!
I have preference for Tony, Loki, Bucky or Matt Murdock as main characters but I'm open to recs featuring anybody from the MCU or Marvel 616.
Foggy was an awesome owner, and Matt and he had a consensual relationship, I think?
So anyway, the Avengers find out when they fight with him or something like that, by a coincidence. They're horrified and decide to try and help him out, convinced that his owner must be some sort of terrible person or something.
I think it was on either the kink meme for one of the fandoms, or ao3?
Please help me! Thanks!
Anyone know any?
any pairings (or none), any length, WIPs are okay!
I am also looking for a Loki/Sigyn fic where Loki married Sigyn and Thor was late to the wedding. The basis of the fic was that Loki sort of removed himself from being involved with Thor and created his own path and friends. Any other fics where Loki makes his own path without going bad I would happily read as well. Thanks =)
So, I'm looking (for a while now...) for a story about Tony. He lives in a bad world,I think one where might makes right. Only he know that that isn't how it should be and he takes over the world (or just America) to make it fair...
I really hope you can help me, because this has been bugging me. Because I can barely find any of these, and I really hope there's more.
1. I read a fic where Steve was one of the soldiers with Tony in the humvee, and he goes temporarily deaf. So I was wondering if there are any fics where Tony becomes permanently/temporarily deaf, blind or mute either while in Afghanistan or during the Avengers? Or comes back from Afghanistan permanently injured (that is not the arc reactor, but he has that too), maybe he had to amputate an arm? Maybe even no one knows of this injury?
2. Any fics that closely follow the original timeline (MCU), but Howard Stark isn’t dead? Or he is brought forward in time? And then he is either a really good father, a bad father or a mix between them.
3. I also read a Howard/Steve-series, The Joys of Step-Parenting, where Steve becomes Tony’s Step-Father, so I was wondering if there are any other fics like that because I literally fell in love. Steve as Tony's step-father. I really liked that idea.
4. (added this as I noticed I had managed to hit a wrong tag.. hidden identity) I have read a lot of these, where iron man's identity is hidden. This got me thinking. Are there any fics where everyone wears masks to hide their identity, so that even the Avengers don't know who they are actually fighting with?
I would be really happy for any fic-recs received. They don't have to be spot on, but similar is good. I'll accept any pairings, even if I am more inclined to read slash-pairings, I can even read fics with no pairings or with het-pairings. I just really want to read more fics like this if it was possible. The length of the fics don't really matter, although I love longfics, I can read shortfics too. Just not any crack, please.
Thank you so much in advance!
The most important element I'm looking for is Steve as an omega.
Preferred pairings are Tony/Steve or Bruce/Steve. However, I wouldn't mind if Steve's alpha was Clint, Thor, or Sam. Fury and Coulson are probably alphas, but I'm not sure I can really picture them in the situation... on the other hand, I'm not opposed to the possibility if you know one you really like.
No Bucky/Steve please. (I can see why people ship it, but it feels like the wrong side of incest for me)
I got this fragment of a scene stuck in my mind where Loki (who is very blue) is out exploring Midgard and goes to the mall (where people are extreamly freaked). I remember Phil showing up and wondering if he should 'take care of things' at which point Tony(?) shows up somehow and tells him the blue alien is actually Thors husband/wife/intended/brother.
That's pretty much it. Hopefuly someone here knows it! :)
I was wondering if there are any stories where Steve finds Bucky as the Winter Soldier in different wyas than in the movie. Like the movie takes place the same way but the Winter Soldier was not part of it but while Steve is off destroying Hydra bases finds Bucky at one of them (either awake or in cryo-sleep). Or maybe Steve finds Bucky before the second Captain America movie, maybe during The Avengers movie.
Slash and self-reqs welcome. :)
Thanks so much for any reqs.
I can remember most of the plot for this fic, and I would've sworn I had it saved, but I just cannot find it anywhere. The story started not long after CA:TFA. Peggy and, I think, Howard find the Winter Soldier. They manage to get through to Bucky, but due to some chip in his brain, a kill switch maybe, they can't fully free him. Because Steve is "dead" by now, Bucky agrees to go back to the Red Room as their double agent. Peggy has a code phrase, something like "come in from the cold", that triggers Bucky's personality. Over the next few years they'd meet up and she'd debrief Bucky on the Winter Soldier's missions. He also developed a friendship with Erik Lehnsherr because he could fix the arm. Later, he's introduced to Peggy's protege Marcus, the future Nick Fury. At one point, the Winter Soldier is on a mission with Black Widow and she accidentally triggers Bucky awakening, but Coulson shows up to debrief him. She uses the phrase again later when she's escaping the Red Room. Then during present day, Loki for some reason removes the chip in his brain, allowing Bucky to stop being the Winter Soldier. He visits Erik to find out what all has happened.
I've been looking for this fic for a while, and no matter what variation of search terms I use, nothing pops up. Hopefully someone here recognizes it because it was such a great story, and I would love to read it again. Thanks!
I've read a few fics where the Soldier was working for SHIELD/HYDRA and Steve got to know him pretty well through work. The specific fic I'm looking for had Steve and the Soldier starting to date and the Soldier getting his memory back right around CA:WS events.
Of course any other fic where Steve befriends the Winter Soldier whilst unaware of his true identity would be fantastic. Steve/Bucky is highly preferred.
You guys were supper fast with my last request I descided for another one that seems to escape my grasp:
During the corination the Frost Giants descided instead of going to the weapon vault the went to the throne room where a battl broke out. Through out the fight Loki stayed near Frigga to protact her and ended up wounded severly. When the battle finished and everyone ws cherring the crowed noticed that loki was in Frigga lap and they thought(even Thor) that he was hiding instead of fighting till they noticed he wasnt moving and Frigga was panicing
Thats all I remember best of luck on your search
But if that doesn't ring a bell with anyone, I'll gladly take any recs you may have for fics in which Steve is still from the 40s but Bucky is from the present day.
- Tony had a Norse name, it wasn't Tony. He preferred to be called Tony, though, as a nickname.
- I think he and Loki were twins.
- I can't remember exactly why, but he was thrown off the Bifrost by Odin. I think it might have had something to do with him realizing that he and/or Loki were Jotunn.
- On Earth, Tony doesn't remember his time in Asgard.
- When Loki invades, one of them recognizes the other, i think. There is a blast and both of them are thrown into the walls. When they wake up, Loki's cranial recalibration was done by the wall,, he's normal again, and Tony remembers.
(p.s. this is tagged as harry potter crossover, but I was just wondering if anyone knows of a fic search site like this one but for harry potter, sorry if i misled you)
EDIT: About the hp search comms, thank you for the ones you've given! I had meant, though, a comm with tags and all, because I've found a couple of them, but they dont have tags and that makes it hard to find stories of a theme... sorry!
i'm looking for a specific fic, but i would also love recs that are in the same vein.
so the fic i'm looking for, bucky was the winter soldier for a while, as per usual. but a couple years before steve is found in the artic and defrosted, shield found and rehabilitated bucky. i think it was around three years before? and steve is defrosted and he's super confused and to top it all off, bucky is there but super different. he's working with shield and you know, the metal arm, etc.
i can't remember whether it was gen or bucky/steve. probably is over on ao3 .
1) The US government (or the World Security Council) wants either Clint or Bruce (could possibly be someone else or the whole team) to pay for something and sets out to arrest them. I think the team finds out while they're away on a mission in some other part of the world. The team decides to start helping and improving their public image in other countries where they cannot be deported back until the government decides to drop all charges against the person.
Found! by semebay The story is: What the Deep Heart Means
2) After a drunken bar fight in a back alley, Clint finds a stray cat who pretends to be injured. He brings the cat back to the tower. He starts out being drunk most of the time and feeling "sorry" for himself but throughout the story, he gets better because he has to take care of this cat. I don't think the cat ever gets a name. There is a sequel where Clint loses his sight(?) for a little while.
Found! by semebay The story starts at: This is a Story About a Cat
3) Through some magical something or other, Clint goes back in time and is able to basically redo all the events of the movie, making them "end" in a better way. He does tell Coulson, Fury and Natasha that he's from the future and they eventually believe him. I believe the beginning of the fic is him going back to seconds before Loki touches him with the spear and Clint throws up a mental shield that someone has been teaching him for if it ever happens again. Clint thinks this is a dream at first because he's been having this dream over and over again. This story is for sure a Clint/Coulson fic.
Found! by parmalokwen. The story is: A Chance Which Does Redeem All Sorrows The story is a WIP.
Now, these are only the ones I remember about/reminded about because of other stories that have similar scenes. There are probably a ton more that I'm missing. So, I was wondering if you guys have any recommendations. No mpreg and VERY-little-to-no Loki. I like Clint/Coulson, Steve/Tony, Steve/Bucky, OT6, gen or canon pairings. Other than that, anything goes. And I'd prefer them on fanfiction.net or AO3 because the program I use (Calibre) is only able to get fics off of those sites. Thanks in advance.
So I've been searching through posts here looking for a fic that I found here not very long ago but I can't seem to find. The gist of the story I remember it was an AU where (1) Steve's a serial killer who seemingly goes after big wig bad guys and Tony did something that makes him or Rhodey believe that the killer will be coming after Tony next only instead of the killing kinda coming after Tony the killer starts leaving Tony some kinda gifts on his bed or in places without anyone really seeing it or something. -EDIT FOUND: Hiding Masks
#2 Found: What You Believe: One by one the Avengers seem to be turning on Tony, until he is isolated and alone, with no one left he can trust. Unsure what to believe anymore, betrayal seems to lurk around every corner. When he resolves to confront them, can anyone stand between him and what seems to be the inevitable destruction of the Avengers? Or is it already too late?
One last one, is a sort of AU but not really. (3) It was something about the team minus Tony getting kidnapped as bait to get Tony and when Tony showed up he was lacking the suit and there was some banter exchanged between Tony and the kidnappers. Tony also brought along some sort of tiny robots that wound up badly injuring/killing the kidnappers and then SHIELD showed up getting on Tony's case for not waiting for them to get there and Tony replied with something about running outta topics or something. I know there are a few stories that are almost the same but none of them have the killing robots and that was that part that stuck out the most in my mind so yeah if anyone can help with that one? -EDIT FOUND: Picture Perfect chapter 5
I've been searching for all three of these and I have no idea why I never bookmarked them when I had the chance and would love to be able to find them and read them again so maybe they would stop popping into my mind whilst I'm in the midst of reading other stories. Thanks!
Fic the first: Steve doesn't get the serum, Hodge becomes Cap, dies in the field (supposedly), Hydra attacks the U.S. Steve ends up leading the resistance and Bucky is, I think, sent home after Azzano and becomes his second in command.
Fic the second: Steve is defrosted during the Cold War and he and the Winter Soldier are thrown together in a joint USSR/US operation. I can't remember if it's classified or a public relations stunt. (Not the 'Amnesiac Groom' fic, this is actually set during the Cold War, not present day, and I think it's gen.)
I found both of these on the Ao3. If any of you lovely people recognize either of them I will be most grateful.
Yesterday I finally had the bright Idea to look through archiveofourown via the wayback machine.
I'm mor or less sure the story I am looking for is Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye by LieutenantTazer but the link is (naturally) dead (http://web.archive.org/web/
So… does anybody know what happened to the author or saved a copy of it?
Thanks again ^^
Loki has a horrible, massive and crippling low-self-esteem. He doesn't let it show, but he literally believes he is so horrible and ugly etc that no one would love him.
Then, Loki meets a man who is a horrid rude slob. Fat, I think, middle-aged, beer-guzzling Midgardian. And this man tells Loki that Loki is beautiful. Loki, due to his low self-esteem, believes that this man (who is the only one who told him he was beautiful) is the best Loki could ever have. So he enters into a relationship. Not out of love, but literally out of 'this is the best I can hope for'.
Does this ring any bells for anyone? I would really appreciate some help.
No, it's not the Undercover Boogie, though I have read that, and it was pretty good.
Also, if anyone knows what I'm talking about here: I'm pretty sure it was a huge fic rec, and the url or title was something like "thehawkisinhisnest".
If anyone knows either of those, it would be greatly appreciated!
