jayyyonnaise  asked:

there is this song called 'higher love' by anthony ramos and jasmine cephas jones and i tought it would fit the cinderella au!

I could easily see the beginning-most of the bridge in place of The Sweetest Sounds, and then maybe everything after that as a reprise at the end when they’re reunited.

(This is turning into less of a R&H’s Cinderella au and more of a “how many modern songs can we fit to the plot of Cinderella?” au. …I mean, no complaints here though, challenge accepted. pLEASE SEND IN MORE SONGS FOR THIS AU GUYS, I LOVE THIS!!)

anonymous asked:

hey sabre do you know any like medieval stony au! :3

You’re…trolling me, right?  LOL, weeeeeellll…Okay, so since there aren’t a ton of these, I included some that are more “historical” or “fantasy” than purely medieval-esque.  Enjoy!

PLEASE PLEASE I BEG OF YOU TO LEAVE A COMMENT AND KUDOS FOR YOUR AUTHORS!  EVEN ON OLDER FICS!  EVEN ON WIPS!  PLLLLLEEEEEAAASSSSEEEEE!!!!

So Strong a Thing by orphan_account: Sir Stephen Rogyrs is a farm boy from a noble family who has fallen on hard times. He dreams of being a knight of the realm, but is too small and unhealthy to be selected at local tryouts, despite his determination.Crown Prince Anthony Edward Stark is the only son of King Howard and Queen Maria Stark, heir to Starkhold in the Avengard realm. He is a genius at alchemy and weaponry, but resents his duties to the throne.Steve and Tony clash at a page tryout, and they unknowingly spark a chain of events leading to a fast friendship and a lifelong love…(Eventually, that is.)

Adamant by whizzy:  Anthony Stark, Lord of the city of Mainhett, undertakes an expedition to recover the lost shield of a legendary paladin.

The Road to the Grail is Paved With Hermits by Lenalena: Steve has gotten himself stuck in the Middle Ages and he is desperately waiting to be rescued. After more than a year, he hears about a red and gold flying demon that has dared all of King Arthur’s knights to come challenge it. He hopes this means that Iron Man has come for him, so that all he needs to do is find Tony and get out of this place. Simple, right?Tony didn’t even know where he would end up, when he went after Steve. It’s not been an easy adjustment for him, to put it mildly. And once he has figured out how to find Steve in this primitive shit show, how the hell is going to get him back home?

Worth His Weight by chubbychoco:  King Stark has been offered a rare and valuable gift - a virgin slave, trained but untouched, for him to use in any way he sees fit. But despite the awful rumors surrounding his reign, he may not be as horrible as Steve has heard.

The Man with the Clockwork Heart by indigostohelit:  A de-anon (finally) from the capkink meme. His village destroyed by the northern Empire, Steve Rogers is sold as a slave to Lord Tony Stark, a man with no heart but a ticking clockwork machine inside his chest. He’s been told that Lord Stark takes pleasure slaves, and bitter, grieving, and terrified, he expects nothing more of a northerner. But months pass, and Stark does nothing. In a rapidly unfolding chaos of scheming politics and a clockwork world, Steve begins to wonder what sort of man Stark is– and whether he’d mind being a pleasure slave at all.

A Long Way to Go by duc: a historical AU where Tony is a young nobleman who is kidnapped and sold into slavery by business rivals, and Steve is some kind of warrior who purchases him either for armour care or because he says he can build trebuchets or something. Tony assumes he’ll also be performing sex slave duties, and when Steve turns out to find banging people who are technically his property off-putting, Tony gets quite irritable and demands to be taken advantage of.

False Accusations by greeneyedmonster: While trying to escape false accusations made by fellow Senators, Stephen runs, literally, into Consul Antonius Stark.Rather than landing in the dungeons, he finds himself in bed with the devastatingly charming man, and in no hurry to leave any time soon.

The Plague of York by deadeyeboy:  Two hundred years ago, Captain Steve Rogers was a legendary war hero, the last and only subject of an experiment to imbue humans with monster blood in order to create the perfect soldier. Now, recovered from the ice of the Northern Sea, he is the leader of one of York’s most formidable monster hunting teams, the Ultimates, who are charged with the nonlethal capture and containment of monsters who go feral.

Genuflect by @some-blue-jack:  (WIP)  “You called for me, Your Majesty,” Steve said, leather creaking as he adjusted his sword and shield in order to go down to one knee. He waited for Tony’s permission to rise.

Second Nature by @winterstar95: Tony’s world shatters in increments. An assassination attempt nearly kills him, but that isn’t what’s tearing him apart - it’s losing Steve to his omega nature - to the warrior rage, to the need to find the assassins and destroy them. The people behind the assassination attempt have other plans - plans that could break Tony’s and Steve’s newly formed alpha-omega bond.Tony and Steve may be only just starting on their journey together as bondmates, but their souls have been intertwined for centuries…is their fate sealed? Will they suffer what’s happened in the past or will they and their bond survive?

His “Damsel-NOT-In Distress” by JoFrez:  Steve was the prince of S.H.I.E.L.D and he had always gotten what he wanted. And love was never a question he needed answered when suitors pile up one after another. But when he encountered a mysterious man on one of his patrols, Steve was about to have his life turned around.

Take Me, I’m Yours! by xDinahQueenx:  Fill for the Avengers kink meme on DW: a historical AU where Tony is a young nobleman who is kidnapped and sold into slavery by business rivals, and Steve is some kind of warrior who purchases him either for armour care or because he says he can build trebuchets or something. Tony assumes he’ll also be performing sex slave duties, and when Steve turns out to find banging people who are technically his property off-putting, Tony gets quite irritable and demands to be taken advantage of.

The Emperor’s Fury by valtyr:   Steve is an ex-gladiator. Tony wears a toga. Together, they litigate civil cases. Also a surprising amount of boating.  (not even close to medieval, but whatever)

Knight’s Tale by orphan_account:  In which Tony is the prettiest princess, and Steve is the most oblivious knight, and there are parodied cliches and witches and towers and dragons galore.

Rules of Engagement by @kiyaar:  (WiP) Captain Anthony Stark is hired by one Baron Zemo to retrieve a priceless treasure somewhere off the coast of Newfoundland.He gets a lot more than he bargained for.

The Pillars of Hercules by valtyr:  In 1584, Don Antonio Stark de Cerrara sets sail from Cadiz. But as they approach the Straits of Gibraltar, they’re intercepted by the English privateer Sir Stephen Rogers, who has his sights set not on their cargo - but on Don Antonio himself.  (Not medieval, but historical and you should read it!)

just another drop in the ocean by lincesque:  Captain Steven Rogers of the Imperial Navy had one mission: to locate the notorious pirate ship, the Ironheart, and capture her mysterious captain, a man known only as ‘Tony’.  (blah, blah, not medieval, but…)

Breaker of Horses by @sineala:   What do you do when the Roman Empire you were raised to love consigns you to the sands of the arena? Antonius is a prince of the Dacians, captured in war and sold as a gladiator. He yearns for his freedom. Stephanos – the last living centaur – is his fellow slave and trainer. Centuries old, disillusioned by a Rome that has become a shadow of itself, Stephanos has all but given up on life… until he meets Antonius, and both of their lives are forever changed.  (Also not medieval, but Centaurs!)

All the Reasons We Shouldn’t Work by MiniRaven:  Steve is a knight of Midgard. Tony is a dragon. They should be mortal enemies. Yet despite secret identities, magic, and fighting mind controlled friend back from the dead, Steve and Tony somehow make it work.

My Life Belongs to My Country, but My Heart Will Always Be Yours by Renai_chan:  Crown Prince Anthony of Stark tries to keep his relationship with Sir Steven Rogers a secret from his father, but when Archduke Obadiah Stane is assigned to be his guardian in the king’s absence, their relationship becomes Obadiah’s leverage for control.

The King’s Mate by @saved-by-the-notepad:  (WiP) Steve doesn’t believe in rushed marriages and knows that he can find his mate if he’s given the time. The Council disagree, seeing as Steve is a king who needs a worthy partner by his side. Especially when he needs to be married by the age of twenty-five. Steve is twenty-three and running out of time.Tony has been forced into a betrothal with an alpha who only sees him as a object and a tool. He has fought and protested but no one listens due to his omega status. All Tony wants is to be free and live life the way he wants, free from the restraints of what an omega should be.Then it all changes when their worlds collide, for the better and for the worst.

As Constant as a Star by @astadi:  The Swan Princess AUAs young children, Prince Anthony and Princess Natasha of neighboring Midgardian kingdoms are betrothed, and spend their summers together every year until they are wed. Tony adores his headstrong friend Nat: it’s her scowly little companion Steve he’s not thrilled about at first. But soon Steve goes from being a thorn in Tony’s side to being his dearest friend – and much, much more than that. Despite Steve feeling the same way about Tony, the pair still dance around each other for years as Steve struggles to accept his feelings for another man: especially one already betrothed to another. Not to mention that Tony is a prince, and Steve is nothing but a squire.But before they can make peace, Tony is kidnapped and dragged into the beginnings of another conflict in the nearby magical kingdom of Asgard – he really hates magic. With his potential usefulness diminishing by the day, Tony races to escape even as Steve, Natasha, and their friends race to find him and bring him home.And—just to make matters worse—Tony has been trapped by a powerful spell and turned into a swan, of all creatures. He really, really hates magic.

The Little Glass Screwdriver by @stark-spangled-lovers:  When Prince Steven is forced to find himself a bride, true love gets in the way. As the night of the grand ball unfolds, the prince meets a mysterious knight who might just change his entire life in a way he could have never imagined.**Cinderella AU**

Waking the Dragon by tsukinofaerii:  Since humanity first started spreading across the land, pushing dragons back by sheer numbers, tensions have been high between the species. War is nearly endless, and Prince Tony, the half-human heir of the dragons, is sick of it. When King Howard of the dragons is poisoned, the fate of everything sits in the balance. In desperation to save his own life and to prevent decades of fighting over the throne, Tony sets off to find a cure.Down in the foothills, Legati Steven of the human army finds himself with a missing friend and assassin, a suspiciously cagy adviser to the ruler and a desperate need to be less interesting. In the interests of scuttling his own career, he starts on his own mission to find his answers. When he runs into Tony, they discover just how complicated things really are.

Claiming a Fallen Prince by AgentC:   Steve rises up to take the throne after winning against Stane’s Regency. However, as custom dictates, he must claim someone of the old regime in order to fully gain his rightful place. His eyes are set on only one–the fallen prince, Tony.

The Royal Circle by Darkyu:   True love is not always a blessing when you have to hide it from the world. That doesn’t mean it isn’t worth it for Steven and Anthony, though.

Holding Out For A Hero by @wordsplat:   When Tony was a prince and Steve was his manservant, they were young and reckless and hopelessly in love. But an attack on Tony’s life convinces Steve that he can’t protect Tony, so he leaves in the dead of night to train until he can. Ten years later, Steve returns to the kingdom a strong and able knight, but his king is both furious and broken-hearted.

The Bold and the Restless by @shetlandowl:   In feudal England, the wealthy lords & assorted gentry occasionally entertained themselves by pranking their neighbors. Lord Steve was no different, if not wilier than most.

The Weight of Armor by @the-vorkosigan:   Steve is mysteriously kidnapped. His Avengers are worried. Or: a post-Arthurian AU, with knights and kings and swords, evil sorcerers, half-giants out of Wales, and two certain idiots who don’t realize they are in love.

Man of Iron–The Changeling Prince by justanotherpipedream:  Captain Steve Rogers first wandered into Stark’s Emporium to get a potion to help his ailing mother. He didn’t realize that it was run by the infamous Man of Iron, the former head inventor of the King’s court. With mechanical wings (and a mechanical heart), Tony recruits the Captain to help him seek ingredients in the south forest - where the unprepared perish and rich men hire caravans to protect them from the creatures within.

The Ghosts of War by @scifigrl47:   Steven Rogers never wanted to be king, but he knows his duty, and he does it well. Lord Tony Stark, the king’s appointed consort, does his duty as well, even though he’d enjoy his duty more if it actually involved sleeping with the king. As it doesn’t, he’s just resigned. The war that made Steve king and cost him nearly everything may be over, but a meeting of old enemies might stir up some ghosts none of them are prepared for.

Beyond by sara_holmes: (WiP) Even though nobody knows it, Westeros is at breaking point. The power of the Starks and King’s Landing is waning, Rumlow’s Dreadfort grows in strength in the North and the Maximoffs across the Narrow Sea are not as far away as they seem.Featuring! Accidental Lord Commander Clint and his pet direwolf, disillusioned Kingsguard Steve, disinterested Heir-to-the-Throne Tony, a whole gang of badass ladies, mercenaries that are probably more trouble than they are worth and more cameos than you can shake a stick at.

And not to be outdone…

A Higher Form of War by sabrecmc:  Tony is a King with a surprising number of people out to kill him. Steve and the rest of the Avengers are fighting for Pierce’s rebellion and end up with Tony as their prisoner. Oops.Basically one of those bodice-ripping romance novels I don’t read (ahem) but with far more gay.

Coda to A Higher Form of War Part I and Part II by sabrecmc: Anon requested something from A Higher Form of War, specifically dealing with Steve’s scars. I took that as both physical and otherwise.Wherein Steve’s issues have issues, Bucky is the head cheerleader for Team Tony, and Tony does everything right.Set a few months after the end of the main fic and years prior to the epilogue.If you have not read that fic, I cannot imagine any of this will make a bit of sense.

The Prize by sabrecmc (WiP):  Steve ends up as a concubine in the royal harem.

Prima Nocta by sabrecmc:   This was a Thank You Fic request for Anon, who wanted to incorporate Tony’s reference in AoU to prima nocta and bottom!Steve. Please note that, despite the premise, there is no non-con between Steve and Tony. Took me a while to think of how to do that, but here we are. There is definitely gratuitous fetishization of Steve’s virginity, however. If that bothers you. If not, pull up a chair and enjoy.

anonymous asked:

How would Steve and Bucky react to Tony having to socialize at a party or ball and an alpha getting all over Tony but tony being oblivious? Or tony becoming friends with an alpha that quite obviously wants him but also being completely unaware and continuing to be sweet and helpful?

Remember how I said there wasn’t gonna be Sunset Bain? Yeah I lied just because of this ask.

Because Sunset Bain is super fucking charming, but rarely shows up to Rogers functions because she hates them as much as they hate her, Steve, Bucky, and Sarah don’t even think to tell Tony that she’s fucking evil incarnate on par with Obadiah. And Sunset knows this as soon as they see her before their eyes all dart to Tony, trying to figure out who will get to him faster.

It’s Sunset.

“I’ve heard a lot about you,” Tony lies because oh God how could his husbands not tell him about Sunset Bain, she’s talking like someone of very high standing. Sunset’s red lips twist into a smirk because she knows it’s a lie. If Tony had heard a lot about her, he wouldn’t be smiling so guilelessly. “And I have heard so much about you,” she replies, which isn’t a lie at all. She’s only sorry she didn’t have a chance to sink her claws into Tony before he was married. She glances down at Tony’s dress. It’s very finely made. She would have liked to rip it to shreds. She can’t imagine anything she’d have enjoyed more than to steal this little idiot from the Rogers.

Surprisingly, she enjoys the conversation she has with Tony, talking about clothes and fabrics and–a woman named Serena who makes delicate underclothes, how interesting. Sunset’s eyes drift over Tony’s body again, imagining what he’s wearing beneath his dress. Truly a shame that she hadn’t caught Tony first; he’d look so pretty writhing on her knot.

Steve gets his arm around Tony’s waist and glares at her, pulling Tony up against his side. “Sunset.” “Prince Steven,” Sunset replies, syrupy sweet, and Steve’s lip curls up in disgust. “Steven!” Tony says, patting his chest excitedly. “We were talking about Wakandan silk! Sunset says she knows how I can get some!” Steve swallows down a growl, but the smile on his face is ugly. “Well that’s just lovely, Anthony.” Sunset smirks, reaches out to touch Tony’s shoulder and watch as Steve struggles not to snarl at her. “I’ll be in touch, darling. We’ll get you some silk.” “Oh, that would be wonderful,” Tony sighs happily. Sunset gives Steve one last smirk before leaving.

(“You can’t be alone with her again,” Bucky insists angrily. Tony frowns, hurt and confused. “But… why–” “She’s a fucking snake, Tony,” Steve spits. “She was lying to your face the entire time!” “…You mean she doesn’t know where I can get some Wakandan silk?” Bucky lets out a growl that makes the hair on he back of his neck stand on end. “Tony. Forget about the silk. We’ll barter with T’Chaka. Just stay away from Sunset.” “She was perfectly pleasant with me!” Tony exclaims defensively. “You’re just jealous that another alpha was paying attention to me! I’m allowed to talk to other people! That’s what I was raised for!” Steve’s growl is more like a roar and it makes Tony stumble backward in terror. “DO NOT. SPEAK TO HER. AGAIN,” Steve orders, all bared teeth and angry eyes.

Bucky winces as he watches Tony’s bottom lip tremble before he turns and runs from the room. “…Nice, Steve.” Steve snarls again. Bucky has to let himself be thrown onto the bed, belly up and neck bared for him to calm down. When they go out to look for Tony, Rhodey meets them at the door and says, “Nice going idiots how did you ever manage to woo him.” That… hurts more than they’d like to admit.)

((Pepper intercepts Sunset on her way to approach Tony. “Marchioness Bain,” she says demurely. Sunset forces herself not to sneer at her. She doesn’t know how Pepper fits into the ranks here. “Yes?” Pepper leans in, friendly smile still in place. “If you have any designs on Prince Anthony I will follow you home and rip you limb from limb, ending with tearing your head from your neck, and then I will eat your fucking heart.” Sunset goes pale but doesn’t want to admit defeat yet. “And just who are you to–” “If you keep talking I will take the time to rip your nails out one by one before tearing your arms off,” Pepper continues quietly. “I will use your hair to weave a belt and wear it every day as a reminder that I killed you and I will wear it proudly. I will protect Tony at all costs and if that means murdering Prince Steven or James then so be it. You are not even on my radar of important people, Marchioness Bain. I would tear through an army to keep Prince Anthony safe.”

Sunset takes a step back, shivery with terror, and nearly trips over a wheelchair. “Oh!” “Hi,” Rhodey says pleasantly. “You’re going to tell me how to get Tony some Wakandan silk and then you’re going to leave.” Sunset nearly stutters. “I–I will do no such thing!” “Pepper, kill her,” Rhodey replies immediately. Sunset sputters when Pepper reaches toward her belt. “I mean–of course I’ll do such a thing!”

Once they’re sure she’s left, Rhodey rolls off to go write a letter to T’Chaka and T’Challa about the fact that someone is selling silk from their country illegally and Pepper makes her way back to Tony. Tony leans in toward her. “Is it taken care of?” “I really wish you wouldn’t make me threaten people,” Pepper sighs. “But you’re right. She gives me the creeps.” “I’m pretty sure my uterus shriveled up and died the first time she looked me up and down,” Tony admits quietly. “If I can’t have children I’m blaming it on her and having her executed.” Pepper can’t help the bark of laughter that bursts from her.))

(((“You knew the entire time?!” Steve sputters angrily. Tony draws himself up straight. “Of course I did! I’m not an idiot, Steve! I know the way alphas leer when they want something and don’t care what they have to do to get it!” All the fight leaves Steve immediately, and he trudges over to draw Tony into his arms. Tony reluctantly allows it, but only because Steve’s hands are shaking. “You have to understand,” Bucky insists helplessly. “Sunset Bain is the worst and we didn’t have time to warn you, could only watch as she approached you. She could have twisted your words and made you look like a fool. She’s been doing that to us for years, even during the war, until Duchess Margaret cowed her. Even Sarah couldn’t control her. We were just so scared for you.” Tony frowns, reluctantly lifting his hands to hug Steve back. He’d sensed that Sunset was awful, but he’d never thought about how much she had hurt his husbands in the past. Maybe he’d find out what she’d done to them.

When he feels Steve trembling, though, he wonders if he really wants to.)))

Send any requests to my inbox!!

 ———-

Prince Anthony “Tony” Stark is the only Stark allowed in Wakanda after his father, King Howard Stark, decided to steal Vibranium on one of his visits. Tony is also an omega, and Wakanda is one of the few independent countries that actually respect omega’s.

Tony steps out of his private jet and, as always, is met by King T’Chaka, Prince T’Challa, and the Dora Milaje.

“Anthony, it is good to see you again, child.”

Tony bows slightly, “Your majesty, it is a pleasure to be welcomed back into Wakanda”

“Anthony, how many times must I tell you to call me by name?” T’Chaka steps forward and draws the smaller man into a hug.

“Just the once, T’Chaka”

The older man smiles and turns to T’Challa, “It is rude not to greet our guest, my son.”

“I was only waiting for you to greet Anthony, baba” then T’Challa turns back to Tony, dipping into a bow and brushing his lips against the back of Tony’s hand, “It is good to see you again, Anthony”

“You too, T’Challa. I missed our talks”

“As did I, Anthony. Kali has missed you, you know.”

Tony chuckles, “Then I suppose we should head back to the palace. I would hate to keep my second favorite panther waiting”

T’Challa raises an eyebrow, “Second favorite?”

“Take a guess who my first favorite panther is”

T’Chaka chuckles, but gently takes Tony by the arm and begins to lead him away, “Come now, child. We shall rest tonight, and tomorrow we shall discuss business.”

As soon as Tony climbs the stairs to the palace he is pounced on by a fully grown black panther. The big cat knocks Tony to the ground, nuzzling against him. “Yeah, I missed you too, Kali”

Eventually Kali lets Tony get up, but stays beside him as the three make their way to the sitting room.

“So your father has sent you here to try and negotiate for more Vibranium, has he?”

“Unfortunately, yes. My father doesn’t think that he is getting him money’s worth of Vibranium. And since I’m the only one who can enter Wakanda without being imprisoned, he sent me to do his dirty work” Tony runs and agitated hand through his hair, “I hate to do this to you, T’Chaka, but …”

“Take off your cover-up.”

Tony flinches at T’Chaka’s words, and T’Challa looks on, confused. The omega part of Tony makes him want to obey, but at the same time Howard had ordered him to keep it hidden. “T’Chaka …”

“Anthony … now”

Okoye steps forward, holding a cloth out to Tony, and once he takes it she steps back. Tony quietly wipes at the right side of his face, removing the makeup, and uncovering a large purple bruise.

Immediately T’Challa is beside Tony, his fingers brushing over the discoloration, “Who hurt you, kitten? I will make sure they pay for what they did to you.”

Tony chuckles, patting the alpha’s arm, “I don’t need you to fight my battles for me, T’Challa.”

“Anthony, who did this to you?”

Tony ducked his head, trying to shield his injured face from the two alpha’s eyes. “It’s fine, T’Challa”

“It is not fine, Anthony. Please” he gently lifts Tony’s chin, “tell me who did this to you”

“Howard. I … refused to blackmail Wakanda into giving Howard more Vibranium, he was drunk, I didn’t even see the punch coming”

T’Challa lets out a low growl, his eyes flashing dangerously, “Does this happen often?”

“Only when he’s drunk, and I make him angry, which happened a lot. But I deserve it, a good omega listens to alphas, I’m just not a good omega”

Hands raise to cup Tony’s face, “Do not say that, kitten. You will no longer have to worry about your father, Wakanda will grant you sanctuary”

Tony smirks, “You aren’t the king yet, T’Challa. You can’t offer me sanctuary”

T’Chaka clears his throat, “However, I can. Anthony Stark, I would like to offer you formal sanctuary from an abusive alpha parent. Do you accept my offer?”

“I do”

T’Chaka gestures to the Dora Milaje, “They will show you to a room, and someone will always be near to help you if needed. I will still require your assistance in releasing a statement about your sanctuary” T’Chaka places a large hand on Tony’s shoulder, “You have nothing to worry about now, child. You will learn what a true alpha is like, a true alpha does not harm the innocent”

Hesitantly, like he’s expecting to be pushed away, Tony takes T’Chaka’s hand and presses a kiss to it, “Thank you, your majesty”

“You are welcome, Anthony.”

On the second night of Tony’s stay in Wakanda, T’Challa approaches his father for advice.

“I would like to ask your permission to officially court Anthony, baba”

T’Chaka looks up, a small smile gracing his face, “I was wondering how long it would take you to ask. You have been courting Anthony for quite some time, T’Challa, however I do not believe that he has noticed your advances”

“I would like to make Anthony my mate, however I am … unsure how to approach him. I do not want him to think that I court him out of pity, or to gain access to his company. I have never been interested in the politics of mating.”

“I will tell you, my son. You will have to show Tony that you are courting him out of love, not out of pity”

T’Challa’s bow furrows as he begins to think of a plan, “Thank you. I will do my best, baba”

“I know you will, my son”

It takes a while, it takes several gifts, several romantic dates, and several subtle signs before Tony finally realizes that he is being courted by the prince.

It’s on one of these dates that Tony decides to bring it up, “Why are you doing all of this?”

T’Challa looks up, one eyebrow raised, “Doing what, kitten?”

“Giving me gifts, taking me on dates, just – just everything! I don’t understand why you’re doing this!”

“I wish to court you, Anthony”

“But, why?!? You could have anyone! You could have several omegas at your beck-and-call! Why would you settle for me?!”

T’Challa huffs, “I am not ‘settling’ for you Anthony. I am going after the omega that I have wanted ever since your first visit to Wakanda. Anthony, you must understand, I have been courting you for quite a while now. However, you never reciprocated”

“You can’t want me!” Tony cries

“Why can I not want you, kitten?”

“I’m not a good omega! I argue with alpha’s, I’m not all that submissive, and I get caught up in my work! And then there’s you! You’re amazing! You’re brilliant, attractive, kind, a strong warrior, and I just don’t deserve you!”

“Anthony, you sell yourself short! You are the heir to a company …”

“So that’s what this is about” Tony interrupts, his fists clenching to top of the table, “You want to mate me in order to get to my company. Is that why you offered me sanctuary?”

“Anthony, no!”

“Then why?!?”

“Because I love you, that’s why!”

Tony’s eyes widen, startled, “You … what?”

“I love you, Anthony. I want you as my omega. I want you to help me rule this country when I become king. I want to have children with you. I want you to help me integrate Wakanda back into society. I want you”

Tears fill he omega’s eyes, “Please tell me that you aren’t joking, that this isn’t just some joke that you’re playing on me, because I love you too, and I don’t know what I would do if you didn’t mean it”

“Oh, kitten. Of course I mean it. I would not lie to you. Will you let me court you Prince Anthony Stark, as the future King of Wakanda?”

Tony nods frantically, “Yes! Yes, I want to be courted by you, I want to bond with you, I want to be your mate!”

T’Challa usually stoic face breakings into a blinding smile. “I am pleased with your decision, my omega. We shall announce our courting tomorrow”

Tony gives T’Challa a dopey smile, “Yeah, okay. My alpha, I like the sound of that”

T’Challa lets out a rumbling growl, “I do too, kitten”

Reaching out slowly, T’Challa draws him omega into a kiss, something slow and soft, showing their love for each other, expressing their hope for the future.

“I really hope you know what you’ve gotten into, babe”

T’Challa chuckles, “I am aware, kitten, and I look forward to every minute of our mating.”

anonymous asked:

glad this au is gonna have a happy ending, looking forward to the perilous journey to get to the sweet reward ^^ <33 its so great already, excited to see where you take it. new question: is regency au tony musical at all? play the piano or harp or something (maybe his fave is an instrument that they don't have in queen sarah's kingdom)??

Tony can play most stringed instruments but when he’s really missing his mother he’ll play the piano for hours. It’s a lovely thing, big and beautiful, a deep red mahogany with silvery white quartz and deep ebony keys. It had been a gift from Howard, and he’d put a painstaking amount of time and effort into designing it with the piano builder he’d ordered it from. But Maria had adored it, would polish the keys herself after using it, made sure that it was checked regularly to keep it in tune. Tony’s pretty sure it would have gathered dust had the maids not taken great pains to keep it clean, one of the few pure reminders of their former king and queen. (Then one night they hear Tony playing, and it’s sad and whimsical and beautiful, so they smuggle in the piano maker to tune it regularly so that Tony doesn’t wince at every out-of-tune note, doesn’t weep over how he couldn’t even protect his mother’s piano from Stane.) He stops to give the piano an affectionate pat before he’s led to the Rogers kingdom as political prisoner. He resolutely doesn’t cry. He doesn’t want them to see how much the piano meant to him and destroy it.

After their wedding, when they’re going through gifts and writing letters of thanks, Bucky pulls out an angular slab of wood with strings on it. “And I guess we’re thanking Sam for a block of wood and strings.” “It’s a zither,” Tony corrects him, rolling his eyes as Pepper jots it down. “Why would he send us this?” Steve asks, taking the zither from Bucky’s hands and looking it over. He twangs one of the strings. “He didn’t even send instructions on how to use it.” “I think,” Pepper says slowly. “That it might have been a gift specifically for Tony.” Steve and Bucky look at each other for a long moment before they pass it over. Tony blushes, embarrassed. “You don’t know that it was specifically for me!” “It’s specifically for you,” Rhodey deadpans. “Sam asked me what you’d like and I told him a zither.” “Oh,” Tony says, laying the zither on his lap. “Surely he sent something else for Steven and James.” “No,” Rhodey replies. “Just the zither. I told him his gift to your husbands would be you playing the zither.” “Rhodey!” Tony hisses in embarrassment. But Steve and Bucky are looking at him with curiosity now, so he has to play. Even though he hasn’t played in years. Oh God. He’s going to embarrass his alphas with how poorly he plays.

Still, Tony thinks he does a good job not wincing whenever he plucks the wrong string, or when he realizes a little too late that the zither should have been tuned before he played it, or when he fumbles in the middle of the song because he’s forgotten a few notes. When his fingers slow to a stop he can’t manage to bring his eyes up from the zither, cheeks burning with embarrassment because oh God that was so bad. He was going to have to hide the zither away and never look at it again. Why would Rhodey do this to him?

“Tony,” Steve breathes, and he squeezes his eyes shut to try and block out whatever insult Steve is going to say. “Darling, that was–” Here it comes! “–That was amazing!” Tony keeps his fists clenched for a few seconds, then looks up at Steve in confusion. “W-what?” “Your fingers were all over the place!” Bucky exclaims, enthused. “I’d never be able to do that! You’re so talented, honey.” “I–I am?” Tony stutters, unsure. “Of course,” Steve answers immediately. “Honey, I know how to play a flute and literally nothing else. And I only know how to play the flute because Ma insisted.” “Yeah, she says all royalty needs to know how to play at least one instrument,” Bucky muses. “Lucky I wasn’t a prince. I’m not bad with a drum though.” “Tony knows how to play all of the stringed instruments,” Rhodey butts in proudly. Tony flushes darker when his husbands gape at him in awe. “Not–not all of them! Just–most?” “You’re amazing,” Steve repeats reverently. Tony lets out an embarrassed ‘eep!’ and holds the zither up to hide behind it.

(Eventually, when he realizes it’s okay to ask for things, Tony shyly hides his face in Steve’s chest and mumbles, “May I have my mother’s piano?” Steve immediately responds with “yes, of course” and Tony hugs him, pleased, not aware that his husbands would cut out their hearts and hand them over if Tony ever asked.)

((Sarah covers her mouth when she sees the grand piano in all its glory. The piano maker had been contacted to help with the move, and he’d traveled with the piano to put it back together and tune it properly, in the style the Stark kingdom preferred, and all he asked for in payment were for his travels to be paid for, a Rogers piano tuner to teach the Stark way, and to hear Prince Anthony play it just once. Tony sits himself on the velvet cushion of the piano bench, fingers stroking lovingly over the quartz keys before he begins to play, something regal and powerful and beautiful. The piano maker begins to weep at the first note and doesn’t stop even after Tony has finished playing. He’s old now and had worried that his greatest creation would never be played again, but here it is, in this new castle, being played by his queen’s son as if he’d been born to it. The piano has never looked grander than it has on this day and he will be at peace when he dies because he knows it will be cared for like it had been before the war.

Tony makes concerned noises when the piano maker drops to one knee and places a reverent kiss to the back of his hand. He has long, soft fingers. He hopes that these beautiful fingers will soon be calloused from endless playing. Tony had looked so pleased, so at peace. Maria had used to look the same way.))

(((The castle is often filled with piano music now, so regularly that on the nights Tony doesn’t play, Peter and Harley pad to his room in their bare feet and pester him until he does because they can’t fall asleep without it. This ends when Tony begins teaching Peter, and then Harley, and Tony polishes the smudges from the keys himself when they’re all finished playing. Harley asks, once, why Tony does it instead of asking one of the servants, but Tony just smiles that ‘I couldn’t explain it even if I wanted to’ smile, so they just watch him as he patiently cleans each key before pulling the cover back over them.)))
