or the au where tony travels back in time


Ever Homeward - Time travel and Lake House AU (Steve/Tony)

During one of their Hydra base raids, the Avengers come across a research camp that holds Loki’s spectre along with some other magical artefacts. Hit by a skirmish, Steve and Tony get sucked into an active portal that pushes them through time and space into different places. Tony lands in Brooklyn during the end of the 30s and Steve wakes up in the Stark Mansion during the 70s. Stuck in a past he cannot afford to change more than he will involuntarily, Tony goes by the name Antonio Carbonell, borrowing his mother’s maiden name, and decides to survive through the war times by seeking out Dr. Erskine, who was escaping from Hydra. Helping Dr. Erskine work on the serum, Tony also wanders around Brooklyn, only to bump into friends Bucky Barnes and Stevie Rogers. In the 70s, Steve finds an older Howard living with his wife and kid, claiming that they found Steve in the ice on a quest. He befriends the kid Tony and senses Howard hiding something from him but cannot probe too much, to avoid an imbalance of the timeline. Things get interesting when Antonio finds an antique shop in Brooklyn and comes across a strange box that seems to have a connection to 70′s Steve through a similar box in Howard’s possession. The Avenger friends write to each other across time periods, trying to make sense of their lives through each other. Antonio becomes close friends with Bucky and Steve of their time and finds himself falling for Steve while Bucky quietly falls for him. The Steve of the 70s becomes protective of kid Tony and learns that Howard has conflicting emotions towards his son because of a similarity to someone he had once known. Antonio meets Howard Stark of the 40s and rescues a young runaway Italian lady called Maria, who borrows his surname to stay under the radar.Through the serum transformation, the struggle of knowing what would happen to Bucky, the conflicting friendship with his once family, and a destiny at stake, Antonio makes some decisions that change the lives of many. In the 70s, Steve finally finds out why he survived the ice and who really crashed the plane when Antonio’s change reflects his memories. Now stuck in a heartbroken future, will Steve continue to live as he is or will he strive to get back to a world where he could meet a man he loved again? A tale of two worlds, two love stories, and endless fates - this is the journey of men who are ever homeward.

A fic idea that will come to fruition soon. Do let me know your thoughts!

Times Have Changed - Pietro Maximoff x (f)Reader

Words: 2909
Pairing: Pietro Maximoff x (platonic)(f)Reader
Featuring: Skinny Steve, Bucky Barnes,  Howard Stark, Peggy Carter, Wanda Maximoff, Supersoldier Steve Rogers, Tony Stark
Warnings: talk of death, time travelling, swearing
Requested by anon
Idk if you’d do a time travel au, but maybe one where Piet and y/n end up in the 40s and meet Bucky and skinny!Steve but they have to be careful not to change the future.
Summary: Instead of Pietro dying in the Battle of Sokovia, Wanda did. Pietro was lost and unsure of anything without her. Determined to get her back by time travel, he overshot the time a bit and ended up many, many years off. The objective: Get back to 2017 without changing anything.
Authors Note: so i fucking love this au. i actually have plans to do more with time travelling (probably unrelated to this), so yeah! If you’d be interested in that I’d love to know :) This was so fun to write; how the fuck did i manage 2.9k words?

Pietro Masterlist. Masterlist.

Read on Ao3

After Wanda died, Pietro had been a mess.

Pietro saved Clint and a little boy, but it was close. And even though the Maximoff boy was new and on the other side for most of the battle, no one wanted him dead. He was an important addition to the team, as speed could be very valuable. It was very lucky when it was found out he was only shot in the leg and arm, nothing that couldn’t be fixed with Dr. Cho’s help.

Everyone besides the flying heroes was on the Helicarrier and away from the danger. All except Wanda Maximoff, she was guarding in the church. And once Sokovia started to fall, she went to go see Ultron. She wanted to get revenge and see him die. He hurt her and Pietro, and she would not allow him to get away with it.

“Wanda, if you stay here, you’ll die,” Ultron warned her.

“Do you know how it will feel?” Wanda asked Ultron and before he could respond, her hand jolted forward and pulled his heart out. “Like that.”

Ultron groaned, and laughed. “You missed,” He told her, and she looked down. She didn’t grab his heart, she grabbed a bomb that was inside of him; it activated once it was outside of his body.

You would never forget Pietro’s scream when he saw an explosion and Vision flying out with Wanda in his arms.

Tony Stark is Holmes! AU Masterlist

Steve: “I know we had our disagreements and our fallout, but I’m sure Tony will forgive me one day. He’ll wait for me.”

[Some crossover, time traveling shenanigans later]

John Watson: “Good heavens. Holmes? Is that you, old cock? What is all this? I’ve gone mad. People are half naked and what on Earth are you wearing?”

Steve: “Well…. shit.”

(a.k.a. The one where John Watson travels to the future, Steve Rogers travels further back in the past, and Sherlock Holmes becomes Tony Stark.)

Steve/Tony, Holmes/Watson, Holmes|Tony/Watson/Steve


Written in conjunction with the lovely @naferty - here’s everything so far. I’ll update this as more is added and/or when one or both of us cave and actually write out a full thing one day. 

For now, enjoy these small snippets, all of which I’m tagging under the tag:
tony is holmes! au

Part 1 - John Watson travels to the future, Steve travels to the past.
Part 2 - Injured Holmes
Part 3 - Steve and Tony in the future
Part 4 - Irene Adler arrives, John and Steve are jealous, and Mycroft still sees all
Part 5 - Mycroft Holmes makes himself known to the Avengers
Part 6 - Steve fights along Holmes and Watson for the first time, an escalating prank war ensues
Part 7 - John vs. Steve in the ‘infamous chicken incident’
Part 8 - Steve proposes and Pepper takes control
Part 9 - Mycroft introduces Steve and Tony to some magical friends
Part 10 - Mycroft steps in to help Steve and Watson when necessary and in the future meets some of the other Avengers.
Part 11 - Mycroft is not only a master spy, but also a terrifying interrogator.  
Part 12 - Steve returns to the future, earlier than he left it, but determined to prevent a civil war
Part 13 - Holmes is willing to do anything to keep his loved ones safe, even if it means sacrificing himself.

I’d like an AU where Steve travels back in time and meets a young!Tony who’s in his early twenties. He’s currently married to Tony in the future and he’s so surprised to be here with the younger version of his husband. They somehow end up meeting and Tony freaks out because oh my god, it’s actually Captain America. Steve has to pretend like he’s never met Tony in his life and the two of them steadily begin to become friends which blossoms into something more. 

Cue Steve having wild adventures with a young!Tony which is filled with arguments, lots of alcohol, traveling and a ton of self-realization. 

When Steve gets back into his timeline, time has barely passed and he’s been gone for an hour or so when he’s been there for years. 

Tony walks into the workshop, startles a bit at the sight of Steve before smiling in relief at that fact he’s back, having noticed he had gone. He then brings up a memory they made together when Tony was just twenty five. It’s a good memory, a fond one where they went to the beach and spent the whole day there, laughing and building castles while getting sunburned. 

Steve smiles back, glad to have been a part of Tony’s life then as he is now. 

I also kinda wanna write a Pirates of the Caribbean AU, where Darcy travels back in time, and ends up in Elizabeth Swann shoes’.

I just imagine her ending up in Jane’s lab five or six years later, and Thor immediately falling down on one knee because, “I am a mere Crown Prince, and I defer to a King.”

And Will’s in the background like, “What the hell did you do before you came to my time?” and Jack is annoying Jane by touching all the shiny stuff. Tony might have a crush on Sparrow (“Captain. It’s Captain. I. Am. A. Captain.), and Pepper finds that adorable.

transfrankcastle  asked:

hello! i was wondering if you had any recs with skinny!steve? ;v; there's so little stevetony with tiny steve it makes me sad (;A; i'm sorry my pc messed up idk if my last ask made it through)

I’VE HAD THIS IN MY ASKBOX FOR SO LONG NOW. so sorry for making you wait. unfortunately there is quite a deficit in skinny steve fics out there so this is the best I could do! Asterisks are among some of my favourite fics ever written.

  • Ain’t No Drinking Man by archwrites ( 5733 //  616 & mcu fusion ) : Steve’s skinny and asthmatic again, thanks to AIM. On the plus side, he can get drunk for the first time in seventy years. On the minus side, he kissed Tony, and now he’s skinny, asthmatic, and pining for his best friend. The first two conditions may be curable. The third is giving him some trouble.
  • Hero Worship by Wordsplat ( 8342 // Wedding ) : It’s the morning of their honeymoon, and the absolute last thing either of them were expecting was Loki’s wedding gift. Steve is turned small, Tony is turned truthful, and everything is fluff and smut and rainbows.
  • i would shower you with roses if only you didn’t need an epi-pen by theappleppielifestyle ( 3561 ) : Tony has a plan to woo Steve, and is determined not to let Steve’s health issues get in the way.

    Which is hard, because giving him flowers make him have a sneezing fit, they have be careful about food because it seems like Steve is allergic to everything, and they end up spending most of their dates in the hospital after something goes wrong.
  • It’s Not the Size of the Boat (It’s the Motion of the Ocean) by someidiothasice ( 23.5k ) : “This isn’t a bad thing.”

    Steve gaped at Tony. He deliberately looked down at his once-again scrawny body and back up at him. “Look at me. Loki turned me back into a weakling. With asthma. There is no way that Fury will ever let me be Captain America again. Not like this. And that was the last thing from my past that I had to hold onto. How can this possibly not be a bad thing?”
  • Man Out of Time by samptra ( 39k // Time Travel AU ) : Closing dark eyes he tried to center his wildly gyrating thoughts. “This isn’t happening this isn’t real…” he wacked his head a few more times, “I did not go through a weird tear in the air again. There was no crazy terreract driven machine…and I defiantly did not go back in time.” This was all some sort of dream he was having a nightmare one that he’d awake from in his bed, in Avengers Tower, in the year 2013.
  • Midnight by Comedia ( 6214 ) : Tony Stark decides that taking a shortcut through a dark alley is the best idea ever. Not unexpectedly he gets attacked, but someone comes to his rescue. It’s not the muscular knight in shining armor he’d normally wish for in this kind of situation, but the scrawny man who ends up saving him proves to be one of the most intriguing people he’s met in quite some time.
  • Out with the new, in with the old by BobhasRainbowVeins ( 21884 // NSFW ) : There is an accident in which Steve gets blasted with magic. His body regresses and suddenly, he’s no longer Captain America, but his old scrawny self. While the effects may not be permanent, Tony has an idea of what they can both do with their time until Steve changes back.
  • paradoxical scar tissue by isawet ( 7647 ) : Tony travels back in time to pre-serum Steve, where they spend time together and Steve becomes attached—until Tony disappears. Fast forward and Steve is reunited with Tony—who doesn’t remember him at all.
  • Say You’ll Be Mine by IAmNotLost ( 5095 // High School AU ) : The four times Tony tried to subtly woo Steve, and the one time he was painfully clear.
  • The Worst You Can Do Is Harm by theladyingrey24 ( 9990 // Angst ) : So what if Tony Stark has a folder of pictures JARVIS recognizes alternately as Project Rebirth (when Tony’s sober), Project Hero Worship (when he’s tipsy), and Project Spank Bank (when he’s drunk)? No big deal. Unless Loki destroys Avengers Mansion and Hawkeye ends up finding the damn pictures and showing them to Steve. And if there’s maybe a teeny-tiny misunderstanding about why precisely Tony has them.

    In which Loki is a dick, Thor is the bestest drinking buddy ever, and Tony has a hard time saying what he means.
  • We Tremble In Shadows by You_Light_The_Sky ( 5347 ) : When Steve wakes up, it’s cold and no one can see him.
  • What If I Were To by blue_jack ( 9555 ) : “I know I said you could pick my next PA, but this is ridiculous.”
