Resurrection, Reconstruction, and Redemption is a Steve/Tony story by Elspethdixon & Seanchai. It was the first novel-length story for the pairing. It's part of the Resurrection 'Verse, and has two finished sequels, Readjustment and Hostage to Fortune, as well as another WIP sequel Reassembled, which all continues with the aftermath of the Civil War and SHRA (Super Human Registration Act) in the 616 verse (the main continuity in Marvel comics).
Summary Tales of Suspense: Doom brings Cap back from the dead, whereupon he has to deal with Doombots, Red Skull, the Mandarin, Registration, a bunch of bickering superheroes, and Tony's apparent nervous breakdown.
From the ship_manifesto:
Yes, I know; it violates fannish ettiquette something fierce to link your own fic, but I can't very well leave it off the list. RR&R is a Civil War fixit fic, and is/was the first really major Steve/Tony fic out there, responsible for converting a number people to the fandom, and at 200 pages and 90,000 words, is the closest thing to an epic the fandom's got.
Recs and Reviews
The fic that pretty much launched the pairing. Set shortly after Steve's death and ignoring Secret Invasion; Steve gets brought back and he and Tony sort things out while dealing with attacks on all sides. There are several more completed stories in the series, and one WIP, Reassembled. Really good in-depth look at some of the various issues of Civil War, and how they might have played out.
Akatsuki Ayako created thirteen illustrations for this novel, for each chapter one. There are three versions of each image which gives insight into the creation of the art. The images are accompanied by the text passages they are illustrating.
Fifteen minutes later, he was lying utterly motionless on top of the bed'ss garish floral coverlet, one arm thrown over his eyes. There were still traces of blood under his fingernails.
Steve thrust the last spare shirt into his knapsack -- Tony's shirt, but at this point their clothes were so thoroughly mixed up that it wasn't worth the effort to separate them out -- and sat down on the bed next to him.
He took a deep breath, readying himself to resume the chase, and then the headset he'd forgotten he was wearing crackled to life, and the sound of screaming echoed in his ears.
Steve had known Tony's voice before he'd ever seen his face; it was the first thing he'd heard when he'd woken up from the ice. He would know it anywhere, even through the crackle of the Extremis, distorted by pain.
It took a hell of a lot to make Tony scream like that.
The sound cut off as abruptly as it had begun, the line going dead again.
