I'm not picky at all over pairings or other tags, so go wild. THANK YOU!!!!!
Also, are there any other fics where one of the Avengers or Phil or Darcy or Jane or someone is found out to be one or have connection to one for whatever reason?
Oh, and no Age of Ultron spoilers please :)
I'm relatively new to LJ, but wondering if anyone can help me out. Looking for a fic I read a while back about how no one else can pilot the Iron Man armor like Tony, because his mind doesn't work like anyone else's. His HUD displays twice as much information as Rhodey keeps displayed with War Machine, and he can absorb and keep track of it all, where anyone else would be baffled. I think I remember either Rhodey or Pepper explaining this to someone else, maybe another member of the Avengers? Anyway, hopefully someone knows where it might be found!
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!
I think this is post-Winter Soldier, but it may be older. I have read so many Bucky stories since CA:TWS that they've all blurred together, and my searches for this scene have come up blank.
Thank you in advance.

On that note, still looking for any stories about Tony building cool tools or gadgets for himself/the team?
All I can remember is that it started out with Tony complaining that none of his past sexual partners could push him as far as he wanted to go. Jarvis catologes this, and later fulfills Tony's desires. He sneakily binds Tony up with cables (tentacles? I don't remember what they were called) and then penetrates him with other tentacles. Also, at some point, Jarvis pulls up a screen so Tony can watch himself get f*cked. I think there is some kind of dirty talk, but not sure.
Please help and if you can't find it, post recs for similar fics.
You can read a detailed summary under the spoiler cut or go read it yourself (it's only 4300 words). But basically it boils down to it that Loki offers a clever solution to a problem where brute strength fails repeatedly and gets vilified for it on Asgard because using your brain and/or magic is cheating and bodily strength is the only honorable way to get something.
Summary: There is an impenetrable gate built by the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim in Asgard. It protects some sort of amulet (not really important) but nowadays it serves as some sort of test for young warriors to show their mettle. It is said that no one in a thousand years managed to best that gate, except Odin. The warriors three and Sif beat on it and don't even make a dent. Thor only makes a tiny scratch with his hammer and Loki looks at the gate, sees that it is really impenetrable and walks through the rock instead to get the amulet. A very clever solution, except everybody calls him a cheater (except Thor), Sif even spits on him and Odin yells and heaps disappointment on him.
My first thought after reading it was 'Jane would hate that'. Then I thought, 'Tony would hate that too'. And then I realized that pretty much everybody of the Avengers would think this kind of reasoning ridiculous at best, dangerous and useless at worst.
Anyway, now I'm searching for stories where this cultural difference comes up. E.g. Someone tells Thor (or Odin or any other Asgardian) how stupid this kind of thinking is. An Asgardian realizes it on his/her own because of their interaction with the Avengers. Jane breaks her engagement to Thor because she could never raise her children in Asgard with an attitude like this. Really, anything with this kind of theme would work for me. Bonus points if Loki also plays a role and gets some kind of recognition, but its not necessary. It doesn't even have to end well. If Thor refuses to listen and nothing gets resolved then that's fine too.
Anyone have some recommendations for stories like these?
@Admins, I had a really hard time tagging this because nothing really fits. Could we maybe have theme tags like 'culture clash' or 'cultural differences' and 'Asgard' or 'Asgardian society' or 'Asgardians' tag? Not sure if it's really needed for just this one post.
1. Something that deals with the fact that by definition Tony is a cyborg.
2. Any and All superpowered/more than human tony fics along the line of these http://avengers-search.livejournal.com/
3. Something that addresses the fact that Yinsen must have been just as smart as Tony in order for the Arc Reactor operation not to have killed him.
4. Tony being really good at manipulating the media and the avengers being impressed.
5. Where Loki became a lawyer or a white collar criminal.
I've become a bit obsessed with Tony Stark as a robot/human hybrid from the other posts on this site, which were fabulous. After reading similar works by Del_Rion @ao3, including the Matrix crossover, I got this idea in my head that a Battlestar Galactica 2004 crossover might exist somewhere. Slash, Gen, Canon, whatever is fine by me! Even not in BSG verse, other fics with these themes.
SPOILER BEGINS NOW:
Specifically with Tony as a Cylon or Cylon Hybrid (the ones that are in a pool directly connected to the ships and other cylons, and talk like Oracles and are scary smart and all-knowing ;) perhaps even similar to the Final Five or what happens to Sam's head in the end?
Basically, i really want to find a scene where Tony is hooked up to any mainframe and spouting computer-ese that makes sense to him and confuses the non-techno Avengers ;)
If anything is out there even minutely similar to this idea (like Extremis!Tony), please send me a link or point me in the direction! Thank you!
I've read loads of fics involving physical fights between the avengers and the bad guys, but in today's world electronic attacks are just as common as physical ones.
So today, I'm looking for fics in which tony stark, specifically, has to fight off an electronic attack on the tower, Jarvis, whatever.
Give me mad computer skills, demonstrated so that no one else even knows what he's talking about. Tony always plays a fool but he's a bona fide genius, and it's about time the team realizes that.
I'm looking for things in which Tony's skills awe the others, because he's a good fighter, but there's some things in which no one can't compete with him. I'd like for them to defer to him, if that's in fic somewhere.
I hope my request isn't too odd.
Thanks in advance!!
