Steve/Tony Fic Recs: Mafia/Mob AU
A really nice anon’s been looking for mob boss stevetony fics, so here’s my list for you, nonnie :D Also, do check out @wingheadshellhead‘s rec-list for fanart and edits :) Some of the WIPs haven’t been updated in a while, but are still well-worth the read.
Please kudos and leave comments for our hardworking authors!
Kings Of Coney Island by Vespasiana: In which Steve is a rising mafia don lacking in panache, Tony is an unethical businessman with a target on his back, and somehow a fake marriage will solve all their problems. Also murder. Murder solves a lot of problems, too. (Ults fic. WIP - not updated since 2013)
i fed it to the wolves by naimu: Wolves rule New York City. Perhaps that was why Tony never liked New York City. Along with the giant empty mansion filled with his ghosts and the massive tower that, yes had his name on the building but never felt truly his. Too many wolves in one place made everyone itchy- for a fight or well… a fuck. (Werewolf AU - not updated since 2012)
Captain Steve Rogers is a dangerous man.
He’s dangerous because he runs the New York city underworld, pushing contraband, moving money, always that face behind the curtain that the detectives and the police officers scurry to try to glimpse, but he’s too careful, much too careful to get caught; he has most of the New York elite chained to their desks, and they don’t even know it. Brutal, ruthless, and entirely cold-blooded. On most days, at least. On other days, Mr. Rogers is a substitute teacher with a love for art and a talent for teenagers.
Tony Stark runs a multi-billion dollar technology conglomerate, somehow keeping it together while losing it at the same time. He’s a smooth-talker, capable of charming an entire room in under three minutes. Deceptively dashing with a tongue of silver, under his thumb, he has more money than anyone could possibly use, near unlimited resources, and a curiously large blindspot when it comes to police or even government oversight. Not that he’d abuse that privilege.
And of course, they have to run into each other. (WIP - not updated since 2013)
He’s The Captain?
This was not good.
This was so not good.
There were theories of course, of what The Captain would look like. Most followed the typical Hollywoodesque belief that he was some version of the Godfather, sitting in a dark room with a cigar, commanding his forces with a flick of his wrist. There were even some that even thought that The Captain was not one person, but a whole network of people with eyes and ears everywhere.
The blonde Adonis in front of him was definitely not what Tony was expecting. Of course, in the end it didn’t matter. There was a reason no one knew what The Captain looked like. Because anyone who saw his face never lived to tell the tale. (WIP)
Two Families by Neverever (@captainneverever): Maria Stark and Sarah Rogers seal their new-found alliance through an arranged marriage for their sons, Tony and Steve. Steve, the heir to Sarah’s mob empire, is doubtful but wants to make his mother happy. But Tony is in denial about the deep deep trouble his family is in and wants no part of this. How will Steve and Tony deal with their unwanted marriage, survive a mob war, and defeat their enemies? And what if they might, possibly find each other attractive and interesting? (WIP)
Laws Of Bygones by XtaticPearl (@xtaticpearl): One ran a mob, the other chased them. But there was a stream of memories and past chasing both of them, across lives and universe. An incomplete story will be retold again, with the same heroes, a reborn love, and a revenge burning for centuries. (WIP)
Ain’t Nobody’s Business If I Do by copperbadge (@copperbadge): The year is 1930, Prohibition and the Depression are both in full swing, and Chicago Police Detective Steve Rogers has his hands full. There’s a dead body on the banks of Lake Michigan, the entire city’s legal system is corrupt, and the king gangster of the North Side, Tony Stark, has taken more than a passing interest in him.
lie next to me (blood on your shirt) by theappleppielifestyle (@theappleppielifestyle): "I’ll take care of it,“ Steve promises, squeezing Tony’s hand, and then, at Tony’s look: "We’ll take care of it.”
(Mafia!AU where Steve never wanted Tony to get involved in his mob business - he wants to keep Tony safe, no matter the cost, even if it means letting Tony forge himself into something just as terrifying as Steve.)
Brooklyn’s Finest by kellebelle: “Day #79 of Stark Watch. Where is the 25 year old genius? No one has spotted him in nearly three months, and many are speculating that he might be dead. Others remain hopeful and alert, eagerly awaiting the return of their favorite billionaire to the spotlight.”
HYDRA gets Tony, then Steve gets Tony. Steve isn’t sure how this became his life but he’s fairly certain Tony Stark is going to be the death of him. Mafia AU.
Involvement by Keyboard_Weaving_Stories: Clint had always tried to keep his baby brother out of trouble, which meant keeping him in the dark about his involvement with the local mob. But one day, Tony’s curiosity opens him up to a whole new world around him and there’s only guessing what kind of trouble he can get into.
Baiting the Water by Veldeia (@veldeia): In the underworld of 1930’s New York, a bitter artist turned small-time swindler takes a bold step and goes to the Kingpin for help in plotting his revenge against his former friend and patron, an obnoxious inventor with a taste for art.
The Devil’s Strand by Woad: 1940. Steve Rogers just wants to serve his country, but with a dead man’s name on his wrist the army will never take him. Soulmate marks can be removed, but so-called cures have already landed Steve in debt with the wrong sort of people, and it’s hard enough to make ends meet waiting tables.
With a bad heart, Tony Stark, a capo in his father’s mob, never dreamed he would serve his country. But when a ship sinks under mysterious circumstances, a special division of Navy Intelligence calls on Tony for his connections. He’s never liked the family business, but he thinks maybe, just this once, he can manage to use it for good.
They meet by chance one night, when Steve knows him as only "Tony.” But after Steve is pulled into mob business and meets the capo, their relationship becomes much more complicated.
Get Money, Get Paid by Missy_dee811 (@viudanegraaa): Arno, Tony’s sadistic evil brother, usurps control of the Iron Legion with the help of someone close to Tony. Tony’s left reeling. In due time, he and Steve, the leader of the Howling Commandos, form an unlikely partnership. A rival gang, the Guardians, led by the charismatic Peter, threatens the status quo. Seeing no other way to protect Tony, with whom he’s in love, Steve proposes a fake marriage, which Tony accepts.
My Boy Builds Coffins by myadamantiumheart: Tony hadn’t known that he was getting involved with a mob boss, Steve hadn’t given any indications of being anything other than a mild-mannered art teacher, and Pepper hadn’t been right about one night stands being more dangerous than a long term relationship. (series)
Make Tomorrow’s World Better (Through Any Means Necessary) series by Faillen: When Tony Stark finds out about Obadiah Stane’s double dealing, he seeks out the Captain, the only man in New York that has a team with the resources and ability to take down HYDRA—the neo-Nazi gang Stane’s been selling to. Acting as an informant under the alias Iron Man, Tony finds out a few months later that the Captain is actually his sweet-as-pie boyfriend, Steve Rogers. In order to take down Stane and HYDRA, they work together (along with the Avengers, the gang that Steve leads) with Tony focusing dragging Stane’s betrayal out of the shadows and Steve trying to destroy HYDRA—and Johann Schmidt—once and for all. But close-call assassination attempts and politics with the NYPD throw a wrench in not only in their plans, but also in their relationship, leaving them both wondering if sacrificing everything for tomorrow’s world is really worth it.
Hang Up Your Cross (this one’s on me) by Ylixia: Mafia AU. PWP. Tony Stark is a pain slut who did a bad thing. Steve Rogers has a temper and does not approve of the thing. They work things out. With sex. (dub-con)
Turns out he’s also really good at falling for Iron Man even though he has no idea who Iron Man really is.
The Captain by arianapeterson19: Tony was convinced that the men who had nabbed him off the street had the wrong guy; Tony didn’t know any guy named the Captain. However, if the Captain wanted to show up and tell them that, Tony would really appreciate it.
OR The one where Steve really should have told his boyfriend he was a mob boss BEFORE he was kidnapped. (sequel)
Surprise, I Got Kidnapped by FanofAllThingsAdorkable: This time, it actually was Tony’s fault. He knew that Steve’s enemies were everywhere. He knew that they all had seen his face before. But he had still slipped away from his guard, leaving them in the dust while he ran free. He had just wanted to pick up Steve’s anniversary present without Steve knowing for once. He wanted to surprise him, just once.
Surprise, I got kidnapped. Happy anniversary, baby!
Mafia au by @starkpad: Glimpses of the life of mob boss Steve and his pretty little darling, Tony. this involves guns, cigarettes, lingerie, dancing, and basically steve adoring the shit out of tony. and of course, sex.
