So…. I did a thing. No promises as to when this will be updated since I’m still editing Spideypool and am about 8000 words into ThunderIronFrost… but here you go anyway lol. Doesnt take place in MCU timelines.
Obviously I dont have a title yet, so if you guys come up with a good one Ill take it. *****************
“Easy.” Steve murmured and wrapped an arm around Bucky, who hadn’t stopped shaking since the plane had landed in New York. “I promise everything’s going to be fine, alright? The team can’t wait to meet you. They were very excited when I called to say I was bringing you home.”
Bucky swallowed nervously and ducked his head, fear,anxiety,nervous bleeding from him, his wings folded as tight to his body as he could get them. “I dunno, Stevie.” He whispered and Steve extended his wings, settling one over Bucky’s hunched shoulders.
“Trust me. Have I ever led you wrong?”
Bucky shrugged beneath the heavy weight of Steve’s wings, and the blond frowned, his heart breaking all over again for his best friend.
It had been almost an accident, finding Bucky. Sure, Steve had been searching for him for years, but he had been positive that The Winter Soldier had left Hungary after the debacle that was a botched assassination. Instead, as Steve had been doing one last check on the last known hiding place of the Soldier, he had found him.
It had taken weeks of careful therapy, of visits from special doctors, of Steve talking almost non-stop about their past and who they were to each other, trying to break through the Soldiers conditioning. But finally finally one day the Soldiers eyes had opened and it was Bucky staring back at him.
Steve hadn’t wasted anytime calling New York, letting Tony and the rest of the team know that he was bringing Bucky home. Tony had sent a plane for them yesterday and now here they were, the elevator to the Avengers tower shooting towards the top floors where the team lived.
“Everyone’s going to love you.” He promised. “Most of us are Betas and Omegas so don’t worry about walking into a bunch of Alpha pheromones okay? Natasha’s the scariest, but she’s a Beta, and nicer than you think. She was helping me find you.”
Bucky just nodded, and tried to hide further beneath Steve’s wings.
He hardly ever talked at all anymore, and hadn’t opened his mouth more than five times since they had left Germany sometime last night. It was just another thing that made Steve sad– to see Bucky so different from how he used to be. There were no wise cracks or jokes or snappy one liners. No teasing glances and flirty comments, because even though they were both Omegas, back in the day they had spent lots of time in bed together. Of course Bucky had been the big one back then, carefully holding a fragile Steve close to his chest, wrapping his black wings around Steve’s smaller golden ones. It had been special between them, a bond that war and time and life had all but destroyed.
It was all so different now.
Bucky was bigger now, sure, but he was so fragile. Quiet and unsure of everything, hanging his head and hiding his eyes behind his hair. Never spoke unless spoken to first, and his voice had lost that easy Brooklyn accent, now it was just low and soft and hesitant.
His beautiful black wings had silver tips now, razor thin metal sharpened to lethal points on the ends of his primaries. Not to mention the piece of machinery that had replaced his left arm.
No Bucky was barely Bucky anymore, and it made Steve’s heart hurt.
(I made Peter younger in this one, hope thats alright anon!)
“So do you wanna eat something with me after the meeting?” asks Peter and Tony looks at him.
How do you say no to someone if you really wanna see yes?
“I… i don’t know…” whispers Tony back and Fury looks at him.
“Want to share it with the class, Stark?” asks Fury and Tony slides a bit down in his seat.
Steve sends him an angry glare. Normally Tony wouldn’t mind, but after the civil war… he tries really hard to be good. And the Guardians are new in their team…well they aren’t really in there team…but helping them.
Tony loves them. Because they always treat him good.
“Come on.” whispers Peter and he smiles so beautiful, that Tony nods.
Steves glares again. And even Bucky growls.
“Pepper please i need you to help me.” whines Tony an hour later when he is back at his apartment. Peter is going to meet him in exactly 20 minutes and he has no one to watch after his son.
“And you know that i love to look after Peter. But i’m in Tokyo what do you expect me to do?” laughs Pepper and Tony smiles at her.
She isn’t Peters real mother but she treated him always so well. Peter loves his Aunty a lot.
“What about Rhodey?” asks Tony and Pepper rolls her eyes. She smiles fondly.
“You and i both know that he is laying behind me in the bed.” laughs Pepper and Tony can see that Rhodey holds up a thumb now in the video feed. Tony giggles.
“You two are way too cute.” sighs Tony and Pepper winks at him.
“What about next week? Rhodey and i would take Peter then.” says Pepper and Tony nods.
“Well i guess i have to cancel the date. I mean i could give Peter to Steve or anyone. But i still…don’t trust them.” says Tony and Pepper nods.
“I understand that. And i’m sorry.” says Pepper and Tony shakes his head.
“Not your fault. I wished…i just wished Peter had a real family.” says Tony and he tries to blink his tears away.
He hears a door then and quickly says his goodbyes to Pepper and Rhodey.
“Peter i told you not to open any doors when…” begins Tony and when he enters the living room he stops.
Because there are two Peters in his living room. oh no.
“Daddy look! I found a friend.” says his son and grins proudly. Peter sits in front of him on the couch and gets his hair done.
Peter loves it to braid anyones hair. And now the big Peter as a few little pigtails. Tony can’t help it, but he giggles.
“Hey Tony.” says Peter and he smiles so beautifully again.
“Hey.” whispers Tony back and he needs to sit down.
Well you see. Normally nobody gets to meet his son. Pepper and Rhodey are the godparents, so of course Peter is their little sunshine. His son also knows the avengers…but he doesn’t like them anymore…after everything.
And since that he is very carefully with that. Not everybody knows that he has a son.
“I didn’t know you had such a beautiful kid.” says Peter and the little Peter giggles.
“Daddy he said i’m beautiful!” shrieks Petey and Tony smiles.
“Course you are.” he answers easily, because his son is beautiful, thank you.
“Beautiful just like his dad.” says Peter and Tony looks down. It doesn’t seems like a problem for Peter, that Tony has a son. He seems like he adores it.
“He also told me his name was Peter.” says the big Peter and Tony nods. Well what a coincidence.
“Daddy calls me Petey and sometimes sunshine.” explains Petey then and Peter laughs.
“That fits you really well! Can you tell me how old you are?” asks Peter than and his son holds five fingers up.
“I’m five already! Means im almost allowed in the lab and can build my own r-r-robot! But daddy says i can start whenever i want he won’t pr-pressure me into something.” says Petey and Peter looks back at Tony.
“Sounds like Tony is a good dad?” he says and Petey nods.
“He is the best.” giggles Petey and blows his daddy a kiss. Tony smiles at his son.
“So what do you say Junior do you wanna go to the park with your dad and me? We can eat something together later.” says Peter and Petey jumps up and down.
“Can…can we go to the swings? I love them!” says Petey and Peter laughs at that.
“We can do anything you want.” he says and when Tony reaches for their coats, Peter helps his son to tie his shoes. Tony smiles down at them.
Half a hour later they are sitting on a park bench and Petey is on his swings.
“Daddy, Peter! Look!” squeaks Peter every two minutes and whenever he does it Peter and Tony wave towards him.
“So…” starts Tony then and fiddles with his hands.
“I like him.” answers Peter easily and Tony looks back at him.
“You do?” asks Tony carefully and Peter smiles.
“Of course i do! He is just like you. How could i not love him?” he asks and Tony chokes.
When Petey yells again Peter stands up and goes over to him. Peter takes the little boy on his lap and starts to swing a bit higher. But Tony can see how he holds Petey tightly and is careful with him.
Mabye…yeah maybe Peter is somebody who would treat Tony and especially his son like they deserve.
Tony can handle being interrupted in the middle of an important project. He can handle realizing there’s no coffee left. He can handle ridiculous politicians. And the media. And crazy fans. All this on top of saving the world from vengeful demi-gods, killer robots, giant ants, and whatnot.
What he can’t handle is seeing someone he loves get hurt. He doesn’t want to think of all the times he failed his loved ones. Pepper. Rhodey. Happy. JARVIS. Too many.
And now here he is pressing shaky hands to Steve’s chest, mentally willingly the blood to stop seeping through his fingers, while the man is clenching his teeth in pain. They were fine five minutes ago. The mission was simple: Get in. Clear out the baddies. Get the stolen tech. Get out.
It was supposed to be simple, but Tony’s beginning to think that maybe they’ll never catch a “simple” break in their lifetime, mission or not.
And he had only turned away from a second. A second!
Next thing he knows, a bang sounds off and Steve is stumbling into him and then crumbling to the floor, blood racing from a small wound on his chest. Tony doesn’t think. He reacts. Arm up, a beam of pale-blue light later, and the shooter isn’t standing anymore. Tony doesn’t care if the guy lives or dies. Right now, all attention is on Steve.
He’s out of the suit and on the ground as quickly as FRIDAY can open it. He presses his hands to Steve’s chest, flinching at the gasp that escapes Steve’s lips, and demands FRIDAY call for a medic team and for one of the other Avengers to find them.
Tony tries to not freak out as Steve’s eyes flutter while the man fights to stay conscious.
“At least it’s not you this time,” Steve manages to choke out, a thin line of blood escapes the corner of his mouth and runs down his jawline.
A bitter laugh falls from Tony’s lips. “God, Steve. Just shut up.”
Steve cracks a grin despite it appearing that he can barely breathe.
“ETA, FRIDAY?” Tony calls when Steve coughs and specks of blood fly.
“Three minutes,” FRIDAY replies.
“It’s y-your turn to pick a p-place to eat, you know?”
Tony’s eyes sting with tears threatening to fall. “Like that matters right now,” he whispers.
Steve doesn’t get the opportunity to reply because the area is immediately flooded with medical personnel and Avengers. Tony allows himself to be pushed away and turns down the offer for help. Bruce, wearing only a robe, kneels next to Tony and checks over himself despite Tony’s protests.
“Steve would be upset if he found out you didn’t let someone check you out,” is the only thing Bruce says.
Tony doesn’t reply. Instead, he gazes at the large pool of blood left behind after Steve was taken away. There’s just too much.
“He’ll be okay, Tony. He’ll come back from this.”
“He’s a supersoldier, but that doesn’t mean he’s invincible.”
“Be careful,” Clint calls from a few feet away. “You’re starting to sound like Cap.”
It’s meant to lighten the mood, but Tony doesn’t react. Clint doesn’t push. And Tony doesn’t remember getting up. He doesn’t remember being led away from the scene or making it onto the Helicarrier. He doesn’t remember changing into his pajamas.
He doesn’t remember falling asleep, but he remembers Steve’s bloody lips.
When he wakes up, it’s too a voice speaking softly about art?
“ - and I couldn’t find the charcoal pencils you bought me so I improvised and used grease. I hope you don’t mind. DUM-E didn’t. He was rather enthusiastic about help.”
There’s a chuckle.
A very familiar chuckle.
Tony’s eyes snap open and he shoots to a seating position. Sitting next to his bed, in a tank top with a sketch pad and tentative smile, is a living Steve Rogers. There’s some faded bruising around his temple and his skin hasn’t fully returned to its natural glow, but Steve looks much more alive than before.
“What are you doing out of bed?” Tony asks quickly.
“Well,” Steve starts as he scratches at his cheek, sheepish smile in place, “I woke up and no one was around. I feel much better and I went looking for you and you weren’t in your workshop so FRIDAY told be where you were. I found one of my sketch pads and decided to draw until you woke up.”
“You should be resting, Steve! You lost a lot of blood!” You shouldn’t have come looking for me.
Steve shakes his head. “Supersoldier, remember?”
“Uh, no. If I can’t use the excuse of ‘having the suit’ then you sure as hell can’t use ‘supersoldier’ to get out of this.”
He gets a head shake in return. “I’m okay, Tony. I mean, it was a close call. We’ve all had close calls.”
Tony just looks at him in disbelief. “I thought you were dead, Steve. Or going to be. There was,” Tony swallows, suddenly feeling anxious, “so much blood. Too much.”
Steve’s smile vanishes and he now looks distressed. He reaches forward and grabs Tony’s hand, eyes looking straight into Tony’s.
“I’m okay, Tony. I really am.”
Tony looks down at his hand before his shoulders slump and he sags against his pillows. Steve, good ol’ Steve, is trying to reassure him. It’s not supposed to be like this. Instead of saying this, Tony turns his hands over and Steve immediately entwined their hands.
“I don’t know what I’d do if anything happened to you,” Tony says finally.
“The feeling is mutual.” Steve strokes his thumb over the back of Tony’s hand in a soothing fashion.
Tony’s eyes drop to their hands. He sees a faded scar on his ring finger from a time he was messing around his open wires without wearing safety gloves and got shocked. He was lucky to not lose the finger.
His gaze falls to Steve’s thumb and he turns his hand to look at the back of Steve’s hand, to look at the bare ring finger.
It’s not the first time he’s thought about it. Almost everyone has said they argue like an “old married couple,” that they’re too “domesticated” around each other. They had jokingly called each other “husband” before and used varying terms of endearment.
“You know I love you, right?” Tony asks.
“Of course,” Steve replies with a bright grin, face lighting up in happiness. “I love you just as much.”
“Good because we’re getting married today. Or tomorrow. Gotta’ call Pepper and work some things out. And Rhodey since he’ll be best man and all.”
Steve’s happy expression turns to confusion, then shock, and then he’s laughing. “That’s the worse proposal ever, Tony.”
Tony finds himself grinning. “I don’t hear a ‘no’ from you.”
Steve shakes his head, smile turning almost shy. “Of course there won’t be a ‘no’ but you could ask properly.”
Tony squeezes his hand. “Marry me?”
They lean towards each other at the same time and seal the proposal with a kiss.
Never Eye to Eye by @the-vorkosigan: After the Civli War, the Avengers were back together.How is everything going, Tony? Pepper had asked in her email. It’s fine (Tony had written back). I’m fighting with Steve all the time. Everything is going to hell. I’m okay (you know I’m always okay).(Or: How Tony and Steve learned to be a bit gentler with each other)
A New Way For Us by @stark-spangled-lovers:
They fight Thanos—and they’re losing. And before Tony knows what’s happening, he’s standing with Doctor Strange in front of the Eye of Agamotto and gets send back in time. Can he find a way to fix things this time around, or are they doomed to fall apart all over again?
Over Sea, Under Stars by @the-vorkosigan: Tony gets the phone, but he never uses it and he never intends to. Or, he doesn’t until Steve starts texting him, asking strange questions about medication and mental health, which is when Tony gets worried.(A texting fix-it that grew beyond all proportion. Deals with depression and anxiety quite a lot. There is even some plot in there somewhere.)
Double Time by @sineala:
Cassino, Italy, December 1943. Special Agent Tony Stark, former Marvels adventurer, is sent to investigate a Cosmic Cube found by the Invaders – and it’s the perfect opportunity for him to rekindle his secret romance with Steve Rogers. But when Hydra attempts to steal the Cube, an inadvertent wish for help leads to the appearance of a Tony from the future of another world: Director Stark of SHIELD. This Tony is a man with a lot on his mind. He refuses to tell them anything about the future, but he seems to know much more than he should about Captain America. And something’s happened that’s clearly killing him inside, but he’s not talking. When Director Stark’s failed attempt to return home leads to the unexpected appearance of another visitor from his universe, all the lies come undone. Now there are two wars to fight, and the second one could ruin all of them.
Re-Take by @inukagome15: This shouldn’t have happened. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Everything was wrong, and all he wanted was to make it right.Because that was what they did.If Steve just had a second chance, he could fix everything.
Skies on Fire by @robintcj: Civil War Fix-It, with possible spoilers, if you consider trailer analysis, Wikipedia research on the existing Civil War Comics storyline, and casting knowledge to be spoilers. I’ve played fast and loose with shots from the trailer, though, because they’re just clips and therefore open to my own personal interpretation. Also, I’ve made the choice to ignore whatever parts of the canon I wanted, in order to make my thing work. Because CREATIVE LICENSE and stuff.Edited: This was based on the first full-length trailer, and subsequent trailers of course made a big difference in how this meshed with canon. Of course.AKA: Steve and Tony get along until they don’t.
Can’t Start a Fire Without a Spark by gottalovev:
The Avengers might be reunited, but they are holding together with a Band-Aid and a severe case of Tony pretending nothing happened. The superficial truce is shattered the day Steve takes control of Tony’s suit and forces him to go to medical in a tense situation. When Tony is ordered to take a vacation, Steve volunteers to go with him.
Last Train Home by erde:
Steve writes letters to Tony that he never sends. By the time he hands them to their rightful owner, Tony has had a brush with death, has retired as a superhero, and now has a small town workshop of his very own. But it’s okay, Steve has gone into retirement too.
Tusk by @laudatenium: Strangely, or not so strangely, Steve is the one to call first.“Tony,” is all he says, low and throaty and oh so raspy.Tony says nothing. Not because he has nothing to say, but because he has too much. And maybe, for once, Steve should be the one talking.
Detente by @massivespacewren: Steve isn’t the only one to reach out.A small Captain America 3: Civil War fix it (more or less)Spoilers for MCU Civil War!
A Nuke to Your Chest by @the-vorkosigan: —“Suit,” Tony said, striding towards the main door of his mansion. It came out more garbled than he’d intended. Still, the parts of his suit came flying; his exoskeleton stabilized him somewhat.He hit the button and opened the door. Then he raised his fists and lay into Steve Rogers, who was standing on his doorstep with a slightly tired look in his eyes.—After Siberia, Tony held it together, but after that awful letter he started drinking. Heavily. And now he’s having blackouts. Obviously, he doesn’t remember calling Rogers on that cursed phone. And what you can’t remember, well, it didn’t happen. Obviously.And Steve Rogers has had enough.
Bring Him Home by @seventymilestobabylon: Tony misses Steve very badly after the Accords. Some days he deals with it better than other days.(a fic featuring the booty call flip phone, minor kidnappings, and time jumps between chapters because the election has been happening and my brain has been too mush to make a proper plot)
Closure by @laireshi:
“You were supposed to say thank you,” Tony said after a moment, covering his eyes with his forearm. It wasn’t as if Steve could see him. “It’s only polite, you know. Happy birthday, Steve—Thank you, Tony.”
Best Served With a Twist by @chibisquirt: The phone rang three times before Steve answered, and then he was there, warm voice in his ear, like the comms, like the way things used to be. “Tony,” he breathed, and Tony’s heart clenched at the nostalgia for a moment…“Hey, Steve.”…before he snapped back and did what he had to do.“Remember how you said if I needed you, I could call?”
I screamed so fucking loud when I saw Pepper Potts come the fuck out of the door when Tony was “testing” Peter I swear to god I’ve never squealed so hard in my life goodness me seeing her back and being with Tony once again gave me so much feels I mean Pepper “No Tony, Sit Down” Potts is back and I’m pretty sure Tony is slowly starting to heal from the events of Civil War and Pepper is one of the reasons why he can smile and be the proud father like he is to Peter
I mean Pepper is my favorite leading lady of all the leading ladies in Marvel I mean how can you not love Pepper and Tony????
So, bottom line, Pepper Potts is back bitches and I believe she’s helping bring Tony back on his feet like the way she always does since the start of all this.
Pairing: Peter Parker X (Teleporting)Reader, Tony Stark X Pepper Potts
Word Count: 2000
Warnings: Mentions of a dark past, panic attacks, and an overload of heartfelt bonding
Adopting you after being discovered in not the best of circumstances, Tony has to struggle with the very idea of parenthood. And then also the idea that you’ve developed super powers. And then also that you have a boyfriend.
He could have dropped you off at an orphanage, could have just let you go and move on from the world of crazy scientists and terrorists. He could have… but he couldn’t. It riddled him with guilt and fear and second guesses but something about seeing a small child hooked up to a dozen monitors, head shaved and laden with surgical cuts, Tony just couldn’t leave you with someone and hope for the best.
So after quite a few court hearings and doctor’s visits it was, “Surprise Pepper, we have a kid!” And her pushing through a stone smile. “Can I talk to you. In private.”
But you were hard not to love. Patient and quiet, you had a shy smile when he gave you your own probably-too-big room filled with probably-too-many things.
“I uh, I didn’t know what kids these days liked so…”
“Would it be
weird if I say have a crush on this man?”
“No, sir. Though I am surprised that you watch
a children’s show.”
Tony smiled sadly
as he answered Jarvis
Jarvis. This fellow is the reason I am even willing to get the surgery.”
Tony has a heart
condition and is about to get surgery done. While flicking through channels he
came across a children’s show which is hosted by Bucky. And Tony fell in love
with him. He doesn’t even know the guy. Not that he couldn’t arrange a meeting
if he wanted. Everyone knows him. He is the billionaire genius,
philanthropist Tony Stark. But he
doesn’t want anyone to like him for that.
He gets the
surgery done and Rhodey’s friends Steve, Bucky and Sam come to visit their
friend’s friend who underwent a serious heart surgery.
Tony is surprised
to see Bucky there.
them and Tony learns Bucky is a very shy fellow.
talking and Bucky ends up liking Tony a lot. Too much in fact.
Bucky stops talking
to him because he thinks he is way out of Tony’s league. What would Tony want
with him anyway. Best to stop now before he falls too much. He already likes Tony
way more than he has liked any of his previous boyfriends.
Not to mention
his last relationship with Brock was bad. Before that with David. Before that Michael.
Yeah he’s been through some shitty guys.
Tony asks Steve
why Bucky has stopped talking to him. Steve and Tony had become good friends.
Steve tells Tony a
little about Bucky’s dating history.
were pretty shitty. I guess Buck must’ve ended up liking you and gotten
Steve smiled at Tony
and patted his shoulder. “Talk to him. I have a feeling you two would be good
for each other.”
Tony did and
reluctantly told Bucky about his crush. Bucky was so red Tony was worried he
“Bucky? Are you
looked up at tony. “Why didn’t say anything until now?”
Tony shrugged but
Bucky could see Tony was very nervous.
“What could I
have said? That I fell in love with you when I didn’t even know you? That your
show gave me hope to go through with surgery? I- I would’ve never contacted
you. I - I didn’t want anyone to like me because well I….I am me. I only have
three friends in the world Rhodey, Pepper and Happy.”
describe what he was feeling. He was too happy.
“Can I kiss you?”
Tony looked at
Bucky for a while then nodded.
Steve knew he was
right. He looked at his best friends and smiled. Bucky had his hands around
Tony’s neck and was kissing him. They looked very happy. He had never seen
Bucky smile so much. Rhodey and Virginia had told him they’d never seen Tony
Steve smiled to
himself. “I know you were meant for each other.”
Being Tony Stark’s Lesbian Best Friend Would Include...
Requested By: Anon
☆ In the first few months of your friendship with Tony, he would flirt with you and try to get you to go on a date with him. Each time, you rejected him, laughing, while Tony would sulk and feign hurt.
☆ After rejecting him far too many times for his liking, Tony decides that he will help you get dates, so he sets you up on blind dates with all his other girl friends. Sadly, you didn’t get any long-term relationships with your blind dates, but you did gain many friendships by doing this.
☆ On a typical evening, Tony will show you pictures of the women that he was thinking of asking out. He enjoys listening to your opinion on them. On the plus side for you, you got to look at beautiful women.
☆ You were Tony’s official wingman. If you saw a woman that looked like his type and was straight, you’d get talking with her and move her in the direction of Tony. Most of the times it worked, but sometimes, you misjudged them, and they’d end flirting with you.
☆ When Tony sees men continuously flirting with you and touching you inappropriately, Tony will act as your boyfriend to shoo them away. It works every time.
☆ When someone says something negative of the LGBTQ community, he contradicts their statement and defends the community with all his heart because of you.
☆ Tony fake proposes to you so he can get a free dessert and praise. Tony loves the attention, and you like the dessert. It’s a good deal for the both of you. If the restaurant doesn’t give a free dessert, Tony just buys one for you.
☆ Before he found Pepper, you had competitions on who can go on the most dates in a month. It usually ended up pretty close, but each time you won, he sighed and said something like: “I don’t blame women wanting to go on a date with you. You’re beautiful.”
☆ When you met the Avengers, Tony introduced you to Steve because he wanted you to teach Steve about the LGBTQ community. Steve was very lost, but once you explained it to him, he started to understand.
☆ After seeing how much Tony liked Pepper, you decided to give him a bit of a push into her direction. You decided to talk to him about how pretty she is and made him jealous. After a day of you doing this, Tony asked her out. He didn’t want you to steal her from him because he knew you were beautiful enough to turn someone straight to gay.
Peter gets deaged and seny back to earth by wellmeaning being but It forgets to erase hod memories. Tony and hus team finds him after CW and Peter tries to get their help but nobody believes that he is a man from space. Tony takes care of him and Peter falls in love. Tony gets suprise of his life when there kid he is fond of turns out to be handsome spaceman.
“What the hell.” says Tony when he is back at his tower and sees a kid sitting on his couch.
“No swearing in front of the kid.” says Pepper and she looks at Tony, who promptly blushes.
“What is he doing here?” whispers Tony towards Pepper and the boy looks at him.
“I can hear you!” says the boy and Tony frowns at him.
“Okay what are you doing in my tower? How did you get in here?” asks Tony and the boy stands up. He looks like he is maybe 6 years old.
“P-picked your lock! Was easy.” says the boy and he smiles.
“What the…” Tony begins again, but Pepper coughs. So he stops.
“He says his name is Peter, he is actually 30 years old and from space.” says Pepper smiling and then she stands up. Tony looks back at her. She wears new shoes. Means she bought them from his money. Tony smiles a bit.
Then he heard what she said.
“I have one question.” says Tony then and he hears Pepper leaving. Rhodey isn’t even at the Tower yet and Vision is in search of Wanda. So its only him.
“Yeah?” asks Peter and smiles up at him.
“Are you crazy or am i?”
“So lets talk about that again? Your name is Starlord - which is the coolest name i know alright - and you have a spaceship and are a superhero in space?” asks Tony a while later, when they sit on the kitchen table.
“Yeah. I-i need to get home and i know you are really clever so please?” asks Peter and he pouts a bit. He looks like a sweet child. Tony smiles.
“Okay okay. Do you think you can draw me your team? While i work on something?” asks Tony then and gives Peter paper and a few crayons.
Those are Steve’s but he doesn’t care. Tony sits down again and starts searching for any hint about Peters parents. But he and friday can’t find anything.
“Tony, Tony look!” says Peter when he finished the drawing of Rocket, Gamora, Groot and Drax. Tony looks up at him and smiles.
“Aw that looks really cool, Peter.” says Tony and smiles down at him. For a moment Peter frowns, because he understands now that Tony doesn’t believe him either.
“Do you want to hang it on the fridge?” says Tony and Peter shrugs.
“Come on. It will be fun and you can tell me all about your superheros. I’ll listen i promise!” says Tony and his voice is a bit lighter.
He picks Peter up, lets him hang the picture up and smiles.
Peter wants to roll his eyes but he smiles, because Tony looks so excited.
“That’s Gamora…” he starts.
“Tony?” whispers Peter because he dreamed of aliens again and he is so tired. Two weeks, he is here for two weeks and … Tony still thinks he is a kid.
But he is so wonderful with him.
“Yeah?” Tony croaks and the arc reactor is the only light in the room.
“I’m sorry.” whispers Peter back and he is embarrassed. But Tony sits up and smiles down at him.
“Aw kiddo. Come here.” says Tony and helps Peter on the bed.
“Wanna tell me about your bad dream or do you wanna hear another story from me?” asks Tony and cuddles Peter.
“Story!” says Peter excited, because he enjoys this too much.
“Alright. Once upon a time there was a really brave boy named Peter and he was also known as Starlord…”
“Tony!” shrieks Peter when Tony tickles him. He even kicks, but Tony is a lot of stronger than he is a the moment.
“Thats what you get, when you eat the last of my ice-cream, mister!” says Tony and Peter laughs even harder.
“Stop!” says Peter and Tony looks down at him.
“Please never grow up, Peter.” says Tony then and he looks so sad that Peter knows what he thinks.
Don’t leave me, too.
“Of course i will keep him.” says Tony to Pepper. Peter sits outside of the door and eavesdrops.
“You don’t know that kid. You can’t just keep him.” says Pepper and she sounds not angry but distraught.
“He has no home, okay? And he is so smart for his age and has such a good heart… i don’t want him to be in an orphanage.” answers Tony and he sounds so exhausted.
“Just don’t hurt yourself you hear me?” says Pepper fondly and Peter sighs. He wants to go back to his guardians…but he can’t leave Tony.
“Tony!” says Peter and he is so happy. Oh god.
“What? Leave me alone squirt.” grumbles Tony who is deep asleep on the couch. Its exactly one month after the accident and Peter is finally big again.
“Look!” says Peter and this time Tony rolls onto his stomach.
“Munchkin i already told you…” starts Tony and then looks up.
“Tada.” says Peter and now he blushes. Tony sits up.
“You said the truth.” begins Tony and Peter nods. It takes two seconds and then Tony looks so heartbroken.
“Hey! No i won’t leave you.” says Peter and takes Tonys hand in his.
He will take Tony with him. Away from everybody who could hurt him.
(A/N: This is set just after the first Avengers film, so we still have JARVIS as an android and everyone is happy. Also, Tony and Pepper aren’t a thing, sorry Pepperony shippers.)
Summary: Tony can get so busy managing his company and being Iron Man that he sometimes forgets about his partner (Y/N). As she sees how close he becomes with Pepper Potts, she can’t help the rising jealousy consume her, making her a very unhappy woman indeed.
Characters: Tony Stark x Reader, Pepper Potts x Reader (sort of enemies?), Bruce Banner x Reader (platonic)
Meanings: (Y/N)= Your name
(Y/L/N)= Your last name
“JARVIS, where is Tony?” I asked the android as I exited my shared bedroom with my partner.
He hadn’t come back to bed that night and I had a feeling I knew where he was.
“Mr Stark is currently in his lab, Miss (Y/L/N).” he replied.
“Has he eaten anything?”
“Mr Stark has only consumed an alarming amount of coffee.”
I sighed.“Thanks JARVIS.”
Of course he hadn’t eaten. He never worried about himself, his brain was taken over with science. Stopping by the kitchen, I grabbed a glass of orange juice before making a bowl of cereal. My mind did think about making him some pancakes but he needed something relatively healthy. Carrying it down to the lab I knew what sort of mood he was going to be in. He would just want to get on with his work, not be bothered with anything or anyone else.
It was hard loving him though I wouldn’t ever change it. We met at a party (surprise, surprise), I had tagged along with a friend, it was was for some sort of science convention; we bumped into each other and of course I knew who he was. We had talked the whole night, he too wasn’t the most enthusiastic about the event. One thing led to another and then we ended up becoming a couple.
Unfortunately that did mean that paparazzi and journalists were following my every move. I was introduced to a whole new world, not only with the media but with his superhero side. I was an easy target for his enemies, he knew that and was so hesitant to announce us. However it accidentally slipped out after the battle of New York where he almost died; I couldn’t help but dote on him afterwards, mistakingly showing off PDA, but what was done was done. He was fighting aliens and risked his life for the human race, there was no way I wasn’t not going to show my affection.
When I arrived to the lab, the doors were locked which meant he didn’t want to be disturbed. That didn’t mean anything to me anymore.
“Tony?” I knocked on the glass door with my foot.
“Who is it?” he called out.
“(Y/N). Can you please let me in? I have food.”
The doors slid open and I hopped in as if they would quickly trap me inside them. I found him standing at a desk which had tools laid about, he was tinkering with a circuit board.
“When you said food I thought you meant something interesting, not slop.” he commented as he looked up at me.
I chuckled.“It’s not slop. This is better than nothing. Come on, put your stuff down and eat.”
I took his arm, dragging him towards a table free of any technology, sitting him down and kissing his cheek. He whined like a child, only making me laugh more. Tony stared at it, not moving an inch.
“You know, you haven’t even come to bed.”
“I know.” he started to drink the orange juice. At least he was having something.
“I miss you. Are you working on something big?”
“Just upgrading the suits. Trying out a few new things on them. Everything is damaged after the fight though.”
“I can imagine.”
Tony looked so tired. S.H.I.E.L.D just swooped in and took over, dumping the whole alien attack on the team. What with him almost dying things hadn’t got any easier. He would have nightmares constantly which meant he tried to keep himself awake, he was always always trying to improve the Iron Man suits as a distraction from everything. It was going to take time for him to get back to normal.
“Morning Mr Stark.” a voice came from the entrance of the lab.
I internally groaned. Pepper Potts, the CEO of Stark industries and former assistant to Tony had just walked through that door. I wanted to get along with her, I really did, but after I saw how she acted around Tony I couldn’t fathom it. Always flirting and constantly around him; I knew that they had to be together quite a lot of the time seeing as she too ran the company but she didn’t have to be so flirty with him.
“Oh, Miss (Y/L/N), I did not see you there.” she greeted almost rudely as she placed a bag of McDonald’s breakfast in front of Tony.
I didn’t miss her hand stroking the back of his as she passed the bag. Tony disregarded the food I brought, digging into the fast food. He must have seen the hurt in my face before he started to explain.
“I asked her to bring it.”
“But I made you cereal.”
“Yeah and I appreciate that, but I need this instead. She was passing one as she came here.”
“Speaking of,” Pepper pulled out a tablet from her bag, tapping away,“you have people to see and things to sign.”
He gathered up his food.“Nope, I’m out.”
“I’m going out and by that I mean staying in.”
I interrupted.“Tony you need to do these things. If you keep putting it off it’ll just build up. Maybe it will be good to get out.”
“She’s right Tony.” Pepper added, my eyes rolling.
He bit into his breakfast burger, contemplating it.“Neither of you are gonna give up, huh?”
Both of us shook out heads. Tony sighed after swallowing, turning away for a brief second.
“Fine. Seems like it’s important.”
Pepper smiled.“Great. Well I’ll arrange everything to be transferred to the afternoon, you can rest up and get cleaned up-”
“No. Leave it as it is.”
“Ok, your first appointment is in two hours. I’ll uh, leave you guys alone.” she was hesitant to go, probably thinking I would instead, it was evident in her face but she did so anyway.
Tony munched on his breakfast, clearly enjoying it. I didn’t want to mention anything about how uncomfortable to was with Pepper, he had enough on his mind already. I trusted him not to do anything, even if she advanced; though I prayed she wouldn’t either to maintain a professional relationship with her boss.
“I’m sorry about the breakfast.” Tony suddenly said, offering me a bite of his burger. I knew he was trying to hunt about Pepper.
I smiled, taking it from him.“It’s ok.”
“Didn’t want to bother you. You looked peaceful in your sleep.”
My eyebrows furrowed in confusion.“Wait, so you did come back to the room?”
“Yeah, but then I had stuff to do.”
I grabbed one of his hands.“I wouldn’t care if you woke me you know. It would be kinda nice to see you once in a while.”
He squeezed it back.“Sorry, just keeping myself busy.”
“I know that’s how you cope. Could you just come to bed tonight? Please? Just tonight and I won’t nag anymore.”
Tony and Pepper had left for the meetings now and I was left with nothing to do. I didn’t work, I used to before dating Tony. The job I used to have wasn’t a good pay, I was living off bare minimum really. Although I wasn’t a particular fan of work (based on past experience, I wasn’t a brat) it was common knowledge that you had to work to get money. Tony saw how unhappy I was, lending me money whenever I needed it until he suggested that I move in with him and quit my job. Never had I said yes quicker.
After being together for a couple of years, he started to trust me with the money by myself. Because I wasn’t working, I decided that charity work would suffice. Tony was charitable himself meaning it wasn’t a problem with him. However, there were no events coming up that needed to be planned so I was stuck in the tower. I had already worked out that morning, watched tv and even attempted cooking (I wasn’t very skilled in the kitchen). I could have gone out but I didn’t want to deal with paparazzi and all of my friends were working.
Heading into the kitchen to grab a snack, someone was already in there. I recognised the lab cost and dark, wavy hair.
“Hey Bruce.” I greeted walking towards him.
“Oh, hi.” he sent me a small smile.
“What you doing up here? Aren’t you in the labs all day?”
“Well, people do need nourishment.”
“True, could have asked one of your workers to get it though.”
“I’d prefer to do it myself. Not good with all these people get.”
“Well you do what you want Bruce.” I grabbed a bag of crisps about to walk away before he stopped me.
“Uh, a-are things ok with you and Tony?”
Why was he asking me this?
“Um, yeah. Why?”
“He asked me to keep an eye on you which sort of led me to believe that you had some sort of argument?”
“No, no arguments….” my sentence trailed off as I realised why Tony was curious.“It’s because of Pepper.”
“Pepper? Pepper Potts?”
“Yeah, she…I don’t really like her being around Tony, she can get a bit flirty.”
“Oh. Have you talked to him about it?”
“I can’t right now. He’s so stressed from everything that has happened. He’s not sleeping or eating well, his social skills are out the window; I just want him back.”
“I know I’m not an expert on love and relationships but I think it would be wise to speak with him. Maybe he’ll see how you’re feeling and spend time with you, it could make him feel better too.”
Bruce’s words played on and on in my head throughout the day. He was right. It had to be said soon. I just didn’t want Tony getting any worse; his PTSD had got worse, he didn’t need my whining on top of it.
“What are you thinking about?” Tony’s voice made me jump.
After a long debate with myself on what to do, I had found myself in the lab. Perhaps it was because Tony was always there and this was one of the only ways I felt close to him.
“Can…can I talk to you?” I stuttered, hating that my nerves were getting the better of me.
“Is this about Pepper or the neglect?” he asked, though I wasn’t sure if it was supposed to be mean.
I was caught of guard.“Tony…that’s not how I want to word it.”
He loosened his tie as he stood nearer.“But that’s the word for it.”
“I’m just not a fan of her, she’s always trying to push my buttons by flirting with you.”
“It’s her nature.”
“No it’s not!” my voice raised.
He seemed taken back.
I groaned, pusing the chair back, making it screech against the floor.“I don’t want to argue. I want my Tony back even though I know you’re dealing with things but so is everyone else. You know what, just get Pepper to live here with you cause she might as well.”
“Don’t make this about her-”
“Why not Tony? She’s always here, let’s decorate one of the rooms for her. Better yet, she can take my place!”
His fist slammed onto the table.“I am not going to argue about this! We trust each other, we love each other! Have I ever once cheated or given you a reason to believe so?”
I could feel myself start to cry.“No.”
“So I don’t understand this. You know that Pepper has been a loyal, valuable member of my team, I wouldn’t just throw her away. I will talk to her about this but never have I reciprocated her feelings.”
My voice had turned to a whisper.“I know…I know that.” I could feel my knees buckling, having to lean against the wall.“I just want to help you and I hate that she has so much more in common with you. I have so much jealousy built up in me because of it, in ashamed of that. But I really want to help you.”
His hands pulled me towards him into a hug.“You do help me. It would help me even more if you just stayed happy.”
“You shouldn’t be comforting me, it needs to be the other way around.” I sobbed, clutching onto his suit.“I want to help.”
“Then stop crying and hug me back. Stop worrying about Pepper, just be happy, for me.”

This tried to just be smut but OH MY GOD THE FEELS just overwhelmed it. Still so very NSFW so you know…!! Shout out to my lovely @bethy-sue for helping me with this scene! I am 100% in love with these boys and hope you guys are too!
“So do you actually know any of these people?” Bucky asked, carefully grasping a champagne flute, wrinkling his nose at the taste.
“Some of them.” Tony remarked, draining his glass and reaching for another. “I’ll be able to pretend to like more of them after a few more glasses of this.”
“Geez Tony.” Bucky chuckled. “Why do you come if you hate it so much?”
“With great money comes—” Tony motioned around the room. “Great nonsense. Speaking of great money,” he stepped a little closer. “We didn’t actually do a ton of talking earlier. About the whole me secretly being a billionaire and all that.”
“Yeah, well there’s so much more to do with our mouths than talk, sweet thing.” Bucky murmured and Tony nearly snapped the fragile glass stem in half.
"Peter you dirty cheater, how could you?! with my own ice-cream...
What i love the most about prompts like this, is that i’m sure you all always think of other stories than i do, when i read your suggestions. :D Hope you like it anywayy!
“And you are sure about this?” Tony asks for the dozenth time. He looks worried and because of that, Peter doesn’t make fun of him.
“Yes i’m sure. Everything will be alright.” Peter answers him and he smiles at his boyfriend. He knows how Tony is. Tony is always worried, but this time he doesn’t even have a reason for that.
“Yeah okay. Good. Uhm… he is sleeping right now… but you need to wake him up in an hour and he needs to eat something then. I already made you something, you just have to heat it up again.” Tony babbles and he checks his watch again.
Tony Stark is incredible. The world knows that. But Tony Stark is also an incredible father. Peter knows it wasn’t always easy for Tony. After his asshole ex-boyfriend left him, he was alone with his little son, but Tony manages his company and his private life perfectly.
“I know and i think you have to leave now or you are going to be late.” Peter answers and Tony nods. He still seems incredible nervous and tries to smile at Peter.
“I’m only gone for maybe two hours.” Tony says and it sounds like he talks more to himself.
“Good.” Peter grins. It far from the first time he see’s Tonys son, they are already dating for 5 months. But he was never alone with little Peter before.
Peter isn’t worried. He loves kids and the little peter is especially adorable. He knows Tony trusts him, but of course Tony is careful about his son.
“He is going to be very difficult, if i’m not around.” Tony says instead of leaving. Peter knows the stories Pepper and Rhodey always tell him. Little Peter loves his daddy more than anything and he hates being separated from him.
“Just like his daddy.” Peter grins and Tony pouts. Adorable like his father too, Peter thinks, but he doesn’t say it. He doesn’t want to get a kick from Tony for that.
“Alright. I see you later. And… i love you.” Tony whispers and Peter hugs him really tight. He kisses Tonys cheek and can feel how the skin heats up under his lips.
“I love you, too.” Peter answers and kisses him goodbye for real. He waves him, when Tony gets into the car and then closes the door.
The moment he can’t hear the car anymore the baby phone makes a noise. Peter sighs and goes over to the little nursery. Little Peter still lays in his bed, but he looks already sad.
“Hey baby.” Peter says and little Peter holds his hands up. Peter grins at that and picks him up.
“Daddy?” little Peter asks and looks for Tony.
“Daddy is not here, but i bet we can have fun, too.” Peter says and he tries to sound cheerfully.
And then little Peter already starts screaming.
“Honey i’m home!” Tony says three hours later. He is exhausted and the meeting took longer than he thought.
He stops in the doorway. It’s quiet. Too quiet.
Tony goes into the living room and sees his boyfriend on the couch. Peter smiles happily at him and Tony goes over to him to get a kiss.
“How was your day?” Peter asks and Tony shrugs. He is a bit concerned. Normally when his son notices that Tony isn’t home, he doesn’t stop crying until Tony is back.
“Where is Petey?” Tony asks and looks around and then he sees his son. On the ground with his blanket and some of his favorite toys around him. But that isn’t what makes Tony frown.
His son waves and smiles around a spoon. Tony gasps.
“Peter you dirty cheater, how could you?! with my own ice-cream…” Tony says and Peter laughs loudly. Tony pouts, when Peter stands up and then hugs him from behind.
“He only had a little scoop of ice cream don’t worry. And he even ate his lunch first.” Peter explains and Tony stops frowning. Well that doesn’t sound bad actually.
“And now we are best friends, right buddy?” Peter asks and little Peter giggles at that and even blows Peter a kiss.
Tony giggles too.
“God, i love you.” Tony says and Peter grins. Mission complete.
“So you can stop with all your worrying next time i’m alone with Junior.” Peter says and Tony grins.
“Oh but you will buy me new ice cream, Mister.” Tony says and he smirks.
“What now? It is raining outside. ” Peter asks and Tony nods.
“Your own fault. No hurry up.” Tony laughs and little Peter claps his hands.
Hi! I love your writing and I was wondering if you could make a Tony x reader imagine like the scene in Iron Man 3 where the suit attacks you and you leave for a moment but then come back instead of leaving him alone.
I listen to some gasping and I move in order to watch my boyfriend groaning and moving on the other side of the bed. He is having another nightmare probably.
With my hands I try to stir him up. “To-” As I was trying to tell his name one of his suits attacks me pushing me into the bed and making me gasp for some air because the robotic hand was chocking me.
“Power down!” I see Tony is now fully awake and as he speaks the suit stops and with one hand he destroys it bringing all the mental down. I can only pant at the view in front of me. I move to the side of the bed, turning on the lamp.
“I must have called it in my sleep. That’s not supposed to happen. I’ll recalibrate the sensors” He is panting and also scared by the scene it have been just displayed in our room. “Can we just…Just let me” He is stuttering. “Just let me catch my breath” I stand up in order to go to the bathroom to put some water on my face. “Hey, don’t… Don’t go (Y/N)” He tells me in a little voice full of fear, does he thinks that I will leave him?
“I’m not going anywhere Tony. I just needed some air” I close the gap between us and I hug him. Why would he think I would leave him? Nothing bad happened, it was just a nightmare.
“Please don’t leave me (Y/N). I love you too much for you to also walk away from me” I shush him by kissing him and as we separate I can see some tears making their way on his cheeks.
“I will never leave you Tony. What is happening baby?” I hold him in my arms and by seeing him this fragil I realize how he is keeping up a lot of things we haven’t talked about.
“Is just that… one time this happened. You know with Pepper, she left me after this. And then in a few days we just…we just broke up. And then everything that happened with Steve. I’m just a man in a can”
“And I love that man. I’m not Pepper okay? I will not leave because of your demons. If you are willing to share them with me we will fight them together okay Tony?” He nods as we start to kiss and we make our way to our bed again to enjoy the rest of the night in the arms of the one we care about most in the world.
