Common Tropes & Themes
- Although Darcy doesn't appear in the Avengers film, fanon has her living at the Avengers Tower' or later the The New Avengers Facility (usually at Tony's request/encouragement) and working as an lab assistant to Jane Foster (and/or Bruce and Tony).
- Common storylines have Tony or Pepper asking Darcy to become Tony's assistant, some have her becoming Pepper's assistant and meeting each other that way.
- Darcy taking care of him by feeding him/making him sleep/etc when Pepper isn't around.
- Darcy befriending Tony's robots - Jarvis, Dum-E, Butterfingers, and You - much to annoyance to Tony when they follow her orders over his.
- Everyone Is Related aka Darcy Lewis is Tony Stark's Daughter - Darcy is usually revealed to be the illegitimate daughter of Tony's. This is a possible reference to the actors that play them (Kat Dennings and Robert Downey, Jr.) who had a father-daughter relationship in the 2007 film Charlie Bartlett.
- Some fanworks have Darcy & Tony learn they are siblings, where Howard Stark is their father. In others where Darcy gets trapped in the past, she becomes Tony's mother.
- In fanon, they often exchange quips and whit, and are often compared to being similar in personality (dark but funny). They often portrayed to be protective towards each other.

- This Is How We Roll by TardisIsTheOnlyWayToTravel, Darcy and Tony were half-siblings, which was why they were spending so much time together. Unfortunately, the other Avengers were not aware of that fact, which was probably why they assumed that Darcy and Tony were having an affair. (story now deleted, link via webarchive.org)
