tony makes such poor choices

Avengers Fic: The Best of Life and Asgard, pt 1

((A new quick piece for New Years!  It is going to be silly.  This is going to be RIDICULOUSLY SILLY.  I don’t want to hear it if you think it’s just that. 8)  

Further warnings: There is some alcohol use here!  This will result in some impaired judgement and potentially sexy times!  All sexy times will be between established partners who would likely have been participating in sexy times with or without the alcohol (shut up, Clint, you would so), but this is impaired judgement.  Please use caution if such things bother you!))

“Is this sparkling cider?”

Tony Stark stared suspiciously at his glass, eyes narrowed, lips pursed. The glass had no answers to bestow, so he switched his gaze to Thor, who gave him a shrug. He seemed apologetic, but there was amusement glinting in his eyes. “Of a sort,” he said. “Tis tasty.”

“Tis non-alcoholic,” Tony said. “Tasty is one thing. Non-alcoholic is the anti-tasty. Let’s, let’s not do this.” He held the crystal goblet towards Thor, the stem pinched between his thumb and his forefinger. “You spend about half of your waking hours bragging about Asgardian booze, and you give me apple juice with bubbles? Why would you give me the kiddie drink?”

“It is not a drink for children,” Thor said, his brows drawing tight together as he took the glass..

“Well, I should-”

“Our children drink wine,” Thor said, and Tony decided that he was done with this conversation.

if you're still accepting prompts, can i request tony and cats?? not kittens, but like, older, semi-feral, mean, disabled and/or black cats that are less likely to be adopted? tony being super cute and amazing and loving the cats that nobody else likes (maybe he identifies with them or something??) and his partner (bucky or tchalla) watching with heart eyes

Aw, I love Tony with cats! Sorry, I just had to sneak a kitten in here. But only one! And she’s black! Which is why he has her! Because Tony makes poor choices! Also don’t worry about T’Challa being the voice of reason. He will eventually get heart eyes. Watch out for under the cut!

This work can also be found on my Ao3 here.

It started when he found an ugly cat with a flat face and a snaggletooth. It was mean and spit at him when he tried to get close. He had to get stitches for the scratches he got getting it into a pet carrier to take it to the vet.

Tony named her Griselda.

Griselda did not like being an indoor cat. Tony did not like having to see her limp around after fights. There was no compromise—only screaming from both sides.

Tony thought getting her a friend might help her adjust, so he went to the shelter. He chose a black cat, because the receptionist had said they didn’t get adopted often, and brought it home. His name was Leonard.

Griselda did not like Leonard.

A Pietro x Reader One-shot

Sequel: Devil in Disguise

Synopsis: Party hard. Game hard. Dare hard. Guess hard. Fail hard. Promise hard.


The party had raged on at Stark Tower, now known as Avengers Tower. The multi-leveled function room still wasn’t big enough to accommodate the guests invited, predominately being S.H.I.E.L.D employees. But in all seriousness – who was going to miss a party hosted by Tony Stark? Nobody. It was his belated ‘my bad for creating a destructive yet originally intended harmless AI who inadvertently tried to destroy the world and your lives’, and word for word, that’s what the invitation read.

By 2am, the party had settled and few remained, those primarily being the members of the elite superhero team, The Avengers. Tony had gathered everyone – not taking no for an answer, around one of many living room tables, surround by a four set lounge suite. Everyone had made themselves comfortable, some opting for the lounge or the plush carpet and cushions. And being Tony Stark, his favourite game of choice for the evening is ‘Truth or Dare’.

“Seriously Stark, this high school shit.” Rhodes comments.

“Hey now, not all of us did the high school thing. Don’t ruin their opportunity to make poor choices, Rhodey” Tony retorts, snuggling in besides Pepper. “Those not in-favour of my most ingenuous plan to date, please say ‘aye’.” Tony is met with silence. Everyone knew that when Tony was on a roll, he couldn’t be stopped…with few exceptions.

“Annnnd that’s what I thought, which is why I will commence my game of horrors! Honestly, y’all should be sweating.” He smiles with glee. And so the first victim is chosen by the spin of an empty beer bottle. The night continued, some more daring than others; secrets unveiled, embarrassing facts divulged but all honest fun between friends
