This will be the first of many recs that I will post in the coming days. I am sitting on an inordinate amount of links to my favorite fics that I have finally sorted and I thought I should share! Unless indicated otherwise, they are all SteveTony fics and may feature other side relationships. They are set mostly in the MCU but some are various other universes. Hopefully you guys will love them as much as I do!

Contrary to popular belief, Tony Stark can blush. It just takes Steve getting drunk on some magical Asgardian mead for it to finally happen.
Two Out of Three (Ain’t Bad) by plingo_kat (9K)
It blindsides him one morning in the middle of his customary third cup of coffee; Steve walks through the door in loose cotton pants, shirt pulled up to wipe the sweat off his face from his usual morning workout, and Tony thinks: adorable.
Saving the World (Is Totally a Date) by Wordsplat (64K)
Tony discovers Stane’s betrayal while he’s still being held captive. When he escapes, he sets out to ruin Stane as completely and ruthlessly as he can, playing up his PTSD and quitting his job to destroy Stane quietly from the outside. He also picks up a teaching job-all Pepper’s fault-and oh, right, becomes a supervillain. Okay, that one was Tony’s fault, but it was totally an accident. In the meantime, a certain Capsicle is defrosted a year early, and is assigned the task of capturing the notorious Iron Man. It’s not going particularly well, if the embarrassingly high number of times he’s been kidnapped in the past six months is any indication. When SHIELD decides to help him “adjust” by getting him a teaching job, Steve is skeptical; but then there’s Tony, and Steve finds he doesn’t mind the 21st century so much after all.
NOTE FROM ME: Please read this!!!!! It is so, so cute!!!
Sleep Protocol by 51stCenturyFox (5K)
You might assume that Steve Rogers, a super soldier, wouldn’t have any sleep-related problems, since he is an optimal physical specimen in the bloom of health. You would be wrong. But you know, there are certain conditions.
Star Spangled Spider by Red_City (18K)
Steve and Natasha are bros. Steve likes Tony, Tony likes Steve. Natasha likes Clint, Clint likes Natasha. Too bad Tony and Clint think Steve and Natasha are dating. Or, the one where miscommunication and assumptions add a whole lot of unnecessary (and delicious) angst.
Confined Spaces and Misunderstandings Do Not A Good Plan Make, Clint aka This Is Why Steve Is The Tactician by Lady Merlin (5K)
a spilled drink and a ripped shirt, some terrible misunderstandings, and a breakdown of wills. In which everyone’s finally had enough of this UST bullshit, and Jarvis is a very, very useful ally.
Appreciation by Wordsplat (3K)
Steve has cultivated a wealth of appreciation for Tony’s many different looks, but he does have a favorite.
Steve and Tony According to Clint Barton (or the one where he thinks they’re both dense as dirt) by jesseofthenorth (2K)
Clint thinks they are both dumb asses and he is getting sick of their shit. So he does something about it.
how do i get there with these old feet? by torigates (8K)
Fury wants to know who broke the coffeemaker. Clint invented a new drink. Steve and Natasha get in a fight. Steve and Tony go on a road trip. Lots of sexual tension abounds.
I laughed SO HARD. It mirrors a couple Parks & Rec episodes and it is hilarious.
a superhero and an idiot walk into a bar by eleadore (3K)
It’s not that he and Tony don’t get along. It’s more that Tony got so drunk on New Year’s Eve that he kissed Steve full on the mouth in front of everyone and called him Shirley and then laughed until he passed out.
When I Think (Oh, it Terrifies Me) by celli (8K)
Look, some mornings you wake up and little green men are invading New York City; some mornings you wake up and you can hear Captain America’s voice in your head. Tony has been an Avenger long enough that he saves his freakout for important things.
Off the Mark by brandnewfashion (11K)
In which Tony makes assumptions, and Steve disproves every single one of them. Aka a “five times Steve surprised Tony, and one time Tony surprised Steve” story.
And this one is one of my all-time favorites.
