Word Count: ~102,000
Warnings: Faked major character death, minor character deaths.
Summary:Death threats are an unfortunate side-effect of being Tony Stark, so he's learned to ignore them. Trouble is, when someone really wants you dead, hiding your head in the sand just kinda exposes your ass. But it's not just Tony's behind on the line. Whoever wants him dead wants him to suffer first, and they're willing to do anything to make that happen. Tony knows there's only one way out. To save Steve, the Avengers, and the general public, Tony has to die. Of course, death isn't always the end, and Tony does what any other self-disrespecting scientist would do: he finds a way to fake his death and avenge his own murder. The trouble is, terrible decisions usually have a terrible price, and this one is no different. Tony has a chance to save the day, but the cost may be more than Tony was ever expecting to pay…

Summary: If anyone asked Steve – and a few reporters may well have, Steve wouldn’t know since Peggy had kept him from answering anything else outside controlled press conferences and faux-casual interviews – what his relationship was with Captain America, Steve would have said something like, “We’ve reached an understanding,” or, “He’s a good guy to have in a fight,” but nowhere in that statement would be the mention of friend, or partner or ally. A role reversal fic featuring Steve Rogers (a.k.a Iron Man) as a billionaire, genius engineer with a heart of gold and Tony Stark (a.k.a Captain America) as a playboy American Hero who spent most of his backpay on his flashy lifestyle.

She buries them deep but there is no such thing as deep enough. Red stains everything in the end and fire seeks out fuel.

The other Avengers look to Steve to solve any SHRA-related discussion, but this decision is tough. It's basically fifty/fifty. Steve might as well toss a coin, but saying yes or no to one decision couldn't be that world-changing? Could it?

Summary: In 1999, Tony Stark is twenty-eight and cocky, and it’s entirely possible he’s been drunk for the better part of the last thirteen years. “I’ll see you up on the roof in five minutes,” he says to a man whose name he doesn’t bother remembering. It’s a promise he has no intention of keeping, and he’s never had patience for overweening fans. Talk about things coming back to bite you in the arse. Or: The Iron Man Origin Story, in which Tony Stark builds himself some friends and trips over a family. Spans from Tony's childhood through to 2013; all relationships are background, Clint/Coulson is blink-and-you'd-miss-it, and Steve/Tony can be read as platonic.
