hello do u have any favourite tony/rhodey fics?
oh god, you have no effing idea of what you’ve unleashed i’d probably just go on a rant on each of them but instead i’ll try to keep it to a normal casual list ( just two things 1. i usually always bookmark the fanfics i love to bits so i’m gonna take most -if not all- of the ones listed here from my bookmarks and 2. unfortunately i am super picky with fanfics, especially if it’s two characters i adore like tony and rhodey so -while i can’t be sure until i finish- this might be a short list. on top of that, i actually haven’t gone to ao3 for these two in quite a while -something i’m probably going to fix today, cause now i need me some rhodeytony- so yeah, sorry about that ).
here it goes, actually under a cut ( except the first three cause i really love them ! they’re definitely my favorites ) cause it got kinda long. my bad for ranting, whops ! also totally my bad because this went from ‘my faves’ to ‘all the rhodeytony stuff i’ve ever read and liked’, sorry !
- tomorrow, on the beach — aka the best thing that ever happened to me on ao3. as you can possibly guess it’s a ‘edge of tomorrow’ au with tony and rhodey and i swear to god i went to bed that i still had to finish this and spent the morning after with my phone glued to my hand. i had basically only just cracked open my eyes and i was already back on it. i read it like my life depended on it. there are lovely cameos from maya hansen and pepper potts which i loved and god, it’ll probably make you love rhodeytony even more
- james rhodes in 8C – aka the one that will have you say ‘good lord what good thing did i do in my past life to deserve this’ and also ‘for fuck’s sake i don’t deserve this’ cause the pining is Real my friend and it will get to you. it’ll get to you and it will butcher you like a pig. it’s that good. so fucking good. here’s a quote just to get you going:
- “Man, no one said you were funny,” James Rhodes in 8C says. Tony forces a smile and rolls his shoulders inward. “Everyone here is a dweeb,” he says. “They don’t know what’s good. What’d they say about me anyway?”
James Rhodes in 8C tilts his head, and his eyes are warm and clear, and something in Tony feels cracked and exposed, but somehow free. “Nothing important,” he says with a dismissive flick of his wrist, and that’s when Tony knows there’s never gonna be anyone for him but James Rhodes.
- below freezing – aka it’s tony’s turn to be the knight in shining armor, but before that prepare yourself: cause you’re gonna see rhodey like you’ve never even imagined. this fic will gently wrap its hand around your heart and, at one point out of fucking nowhere, will squeeze and twist and you’ll probably beg for the end. cause, god, jUST GET RHODEY OUT OF THERE. this is mostly rhodey-centric, if i remember correctly, but of course that means that there’s loads of rhodeytony things in it. you’ll sob, man. you’ll sob like a child. and you’ll enjoy it so fucking much & the ending’s too fucking much. ( someone also did art for this here ! but don’t spoil yourself )
