Loki/Tony Stark is a pairing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Loki appears in the Thor movies, Tony in the Iron Man movies, and they both appear in the The Avengers (2012) movie. The pairing is often based on the defenestration scene in The Avengers (2012), and/or on the assumption that they're both morally grey characters, liars, showmen and hedonists.

History

The earliest stories were written as a crossover of the Iron Man and Thor movies. Fic for the pairing was posted on AO3 as early as May, 2011[1] . “Frostiron 101” meta by kyrilu & chaperoned has a detailed history of the pairing. [2]

Common Tropes in Fanworks

Fanfic

  • And You Had Wings by Frostiron_OTP. AU where they are faeries. "Caught in the middle of Wars, Loki discovers Obadiah Stane's plan of taking over the three kingdoms - Midgard, Asgard and Jotenheimr - and both he and Prince Anthony Stark are shoved together when events cause them to ally immediately and to try to stop Stane and save Tony's kingdom and his Mother from doom."
  • Desiderata by stereobone. “Tony doesn't know anything about love. He's convinced himself it's for the best.” During a fight Amora puts Loki under a love spell and has to stay close to Tony.
  • Tricks of the Trade by Like_A_Hurricane. Loki/Tony, Tony helps Loki rebuilding the Bifrost, drawing on significant comic background.
  • Off the Record by goddamnhella. "It started with a message, a late-night visit, and a God of Mischief in Tony's bed. A story of trust, trickery, unwilling aid and inevitable attraction." Original link deleted; now re-uploaded to an archive account.
  • Bend Around the Wind by Scyllaya.
  • Rise from Ash by Mikkeneko. Or:

Five Times Loki Didn't Save the World (And One Time He Did). When Loki's world falls apart around him, he learns that sometimes you do get a second chance.

  • The Age of Frost by BakerStreetMuse 70's glam rock AU.
  • Winterheart by goddamnhella. Loosely inspired by The Beauty and the Beast, with Loki as the beast and Tony as Belle.
  • Coveted by Plumadesatada. Ongoing WIP fic. "The kid is nibbling on his pen now; all soft skin, white teeth and concentration. Loki bites back a groan and squirms in his chair, feeling rather too hot. He looks down at his watch desperately.Fifteen more minutes left. He sighs. Loki is twenty-eight. The kid is thirteen. He shouldn't be feeling like this."
  • Abyss by Plumadesatada. A monster lives in Tony's shadow and sleeps under his bed.
  • Beauty From Pain by Frostiron_OTP. WIP. First extended Omega!Tony fic in the Loki/Tony fandom. Heavy with non-con and plot. "When Loki forcefully claims Tony as his Omega, Tony's life steadily gets worse from the moment it all began. In perfect accordance to any Omega-Alpha-bonding laws, Loki is completely in his right to keep Tony and all his possessions, which makes a 'rescue' a criminal offence; despite just who it is, Tony is bonded to. But, as Loki's brutal treatment slowly erodes Tony's self-worth, things aren't what they seem and there's a mystery to this house that seems connected to Omega's and - mainly - to the both of them as well.[Non-con scenes now over.]"
  • To Burn The Horizon by CourtJester01. Very plot heavy, in-character fic. In which Tony and Loki slowly develop a thing amidst betrayals, attacks and a slowly forming war from Thanos.
  • Whatever You Wish For by Frostiron_OTP Based on the fairytale Cinderella, wherein Loki is an ugly step-sister, the fairy godmother and the Prince, and Tony is simply a genius Cinderella.
  • Of magic and nuclear bombs (neither of which are the answer to anything) by Melonbutterly First Mpreg fic with Tony as the carrier. In character, and with fragments of plot which keeps it very interesting.
  • Signals in Courtship by Melonbutterly "Tony is nonplussed at first when he starts to receive gifts from Loki that Thor informs him are courtship gifts, but he soon starts to return the interest. How could he not when nobody has ever gone to such effort to show their interest in him before, especially someone as fascinating as Loki?"
  • Two Hearts From Hell by Frostiron_OTP WIP. Extremely plot heavy fic, where Loki and Tony do not get a break amidst realistic original characters and a mysterious plot line. "Two years after the capture of Loki on Midgard, the death of Odin resulted in the crowning of Thor and the return of Loki from his exile. Unfortunately for Loki, he had preferred exile to Asgard and became stuck with the limbo-life he'd never wanted. However, when chaos erupts during Thor's two-year anniversary, Loki finds himself lost from Asgard with Tony Stark and without answers. And with more and more incidents in each of the realms occurring when they shouldn't, the both of them land on a journey neither had imagined themselves to be in. Where most of the time they're just trying to survive, and were probably both just in the wrong place at the right time."
  • Where the Mighty Live by spaceleviathan "When Thor receives a plea for help from Jotunheim, he gathers the Avengers and they set off to save a different world from war. There, they meet the crown prince of Jotunheim, who is determined to do everything in his power to stop his realm from being destroyed."
  • Lessons From a God by malkavia30 WIP at over 90 chapters. Widely rec'd fic. Very plot heavy with a lot of smut. In character development of a loving relationship. "What happens when Loki decides to take the genius, billionaire, playboy, philanthropist Tony Stark in hand? Whether Tony is keen on the idea or not." Does include non-con for one or two chapters.
  • To Say I do is to Say Goodbye by Frostiron_OTP Mpreg with Tony as the carrier. WIP. "Born with the Carrier gene, Tony Stark is seen by Asgard as a rare gem. And, as those with this gene cannot reproduce unless they have intercourse with a member of the same sex, Howard's need for his company/family line to continue overwhelms him and he agrees to a marital bond between Tony Stark and Thor Odinson. Without consulting his son first. But then, on the actual wedding day, Odin surprisingly changes his mind about which of his sons he wants to marry Tony, and Oh, God. Tony's heard a whole load of rumors about this Loki, God of Trickery ..."
