Title: The life and woes of Mister Anthony Edward Stark, Inventor Extraordinare
Word Count:~17 500
Type:Historical AU
Characters/Pairings:Tony/Steve, other members of Avengers universe, slight Erik/Charles from XMFC
Warnings:Characters deaths, blood, kidnapping, drug use, child abuse
Summary:The story in which there are robots who are not imaginary, a whole mass of steams and tumblers, and a lot of useless cravats. Alternatively this is a story in which Anthony Stark grows from wannabe mechanic into an inventor extraordinary, finds a group of friends along the way and is maybe a little miffed for this whole arranged marriage business.

Title: The Twice-Told Tale
Author: arysteia
Artist: realproof
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 15, 798
Type: Romance
Characters/Pairings: Steve/Tony; Howard Stark
Warnings: some violence, explicit sex, references to WWII

Summary: For someone he'd hero-worshipped for so long, Steve Rogers in the flesh is a pretty big disappointment. For one thing, he keeps looking at Tony as though he reminds him of someone else, and even if he never says anything, Tony's pretty sure it's his father. A life time of not measuring up to Howard's expectations is more than enough, thank you very much, and he's certainly not going to make an effort to live up to any of Steve's. Steve's pretty clearly failed to live up to his expectations, in any case, and that's not hypocritical at all.

Callused fingertips brushed the back of his hand and he looked up at Thor. He hadn’t even heard or felt him slide over so that they were next to each other. “I do not want to be a secret, not something dark and wrong to be afraid of,” Thor said slowly. “I have never wanted to do something I am ashamed of. But if this were merely something private, just between us, just for us...that I could live with.”

At last, Steve swallowed thickly, his hand turning over to fit against Thor’s, entwining their fingers together. Hand in hand, into the crucible.

“I…I’d like to try.”

Title: Golden Heart, Silver Tongue
Author: emisolde
Artist: realproof
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 27,856
Type: Victorian AU, (Slash) Romance
Characters/Pairings: (past) Loki/Tony, Loki/Thor, Clint/Natasha, Steve/Peggy
Warnings: None, although there are (very brief) mentions of Tony's tendency to drink, if that is likely to bother you.
Summary: The marriage between Loki Laufeyson and Anthony Stark, two gentlemen as eccentric as they are wealthy, was once the talk of both Asgard and Jotunheim. But ever since a disastrous visit to Muspelheim, Tony hasn't been the same, so Loki finally takes his daughter and runs to Midgard, hoping to spur Tony into action. Natasha Banner fled her traitorous husband-to-be before she could take the Romanoff name, but false accusations brought her to settle in Midgard under an assumed identity. Thor Odinson has lived in Midgard almost all his life, and recently inherited his father's mill, but his principles are getting in the way of his business sense and it is very nearly bankrupt.
If this wasn't a Victorian romance, this could probably only end in disaster - but as it is, a multitude of other characters and SHIELD Legal Services combine to result in a universally happy ending!
Notes: Thank you so much to JJ for such an excellent beta job, and to everyone who offered encouragement and assistance along the way!

Title: slipping through the years
Rating: R
Type: AU, slash
Universe: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Warnings: mentions of underage sex, mentions of torture, both brief and not between main pairing

AN: Title is from Death Cab for Cutie's "You Can Do Better Than Me".

Summary: The plane crash and subsequent ice might have killed him, but that doesn’t mean he isn’t still around, haunting those he cares about. And since the only person who can see him is Tony Stark, death sure isn’t going to be boring.

Title: Caught in the Middle
Author: emisolde
Artist: mmartianchild
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 20,182
Type: Bromance, (Slash) Romance
Characters/Pairings: Thor & Steve friendship; Loki & Steve friendship; Thor/Loki; all movie!verse Avengers appear
Warnings: No standard warnings apply, unless you feel Thor/Loki is semi-incest.
Summary: The first morning Loki shows up at the Avengers Mansion, wandering into the kitchen where Steve is sat at the table, it doesn't really occur to Steve to find it strange. Not even when Loki calls him 'darling' and bends down to brush his lips against Steve's cheek as he passes.
Well, all right, maybe he does find that a little weird.
But not as weird as the fact that Loki's spent the past six months kidnapping him for no reason other than he's friends with Thor.
Notes: Thank you so much to Ali for her wonderful beta job, and to Piglet and Tin for their enthusiasm and encouragement along the way!

Title: The Shortest Week
Author: shinysylver
Artist: meivocis
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 15,235
Type: Movieverse (written pre-Avengers so no spoilers)
Characters/Pairings: Gen; Tony-centered, also featuring Steve, Thor, and Fury
Warnings: No standard warnings apply, but Tony does drink a lot in this fic if that is a concern for you.
Summary: It doesn’t take Tony long to realize that he’s stuck in a time loop, doomed to relive the same crappy day over and over again. Every day he wakes up hung over—whether or not he drinks—has to deal with giant robots and, even worse, a pissed off Captain America. Tony has to figure out how to stop the cycle before he goes crazy and in the process maybe he and Steve can come to an understanding.

Author's Note: Many, many thanks go to meivocis for the fanmix and video she made to go with this fic. And also many thanks to somehowunbroken for the beta and jesseofthenorth and camshaft22 for their support along the way.

Title: I will ask you to open my door from your side
Author: sirona_gs and delicatale
Artist: Tgda / tgda
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~21,000
Type: AU, Romance
Characters/Pairings: Phil Coulson/Clint Barton, Phil Coulson/Pepper Potts, past one-sided Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers
Warnings: (brief, non-graphic) mentions of past child abuse/neglect, deals with the break-up of a long-term relationship (no infidelity, though).
Summary: Phil's car is firetruck red, and she's his pride and joy. She deserves the very best of care, something Phil can't give her by himself -- he's the CFO of Stark Industries, not the experienced mechanic she needs. This is a project that needs outsourcing -- straight to Steve Rogers' garage and its preternaturally gifted restorer, Clint Barton.
Notes: Many thanks to laria_gwyn for her wonderfully thorough beta job and her invaluable help with dealing with the more sensitive aspects of this story.

Title: Never Say Never
Author: lumediluna
Artist: borealisdawn
Rating: Strong PG-13
Word Count: 37,634
Type: AU, angsty romcom
Characters/Pairings: Tony Stark/Steve Rogers, Nick Fury, Obadiah Stane, Bucky, Pepper, implied Bucky/Pepper, Rhodey, and small cameos by others.
Warnings: Strong language, violence, angst, emotional abuse, mentions of physical abuse.
Summary: When 24-year old Tony Stark goes out to distract himself from the fact that he has been put on probation by his company's board of directors due to his partying lifestyle, he bumps into (quite literally) a law student named Steve Rogers, who has recently lost his father and has been 'dragged out' by his best friend to "have some fun."

"Some fun" turns into shots, Vegas, and...marriage?

Except, someone on probation is not allowed to have a quickie marriage. The only alternative is to somehow continue the farce until the probation is over, but that's not as easy as it sounds when very real feelings start being added to the equation.

Title: The Still Point of the Turning World
Author: quesera_fics
Artist: lynndyre
Rating: PG
Word Count: 28644
Type: AU
Characters/Pairings: Thor, Loki, Odin, Laufey, the Avengers
Warnings: none
Notes: Tremendous thanks to notyourshot, who stayed up with me while sick to work through rough spots and keep me from going crazy. You are amazing.
Summary: After an inglorious defeat at the hands of Asgard, Laufey seizes the opportunity for revenge and kidnaps Odin's only son. He does not, expect, however, for his own son to take such a liking to the young Thor - or for one touch of Loki's hands to turn Thor Jotun blue. The two grow together, reigning beloved and terrible in Jotunheim, until one day a delegation from Asgard arrives to tear everything apart. Now, to prevent war, Thor must leave everything he knows to join a people who mistrust and fear him, while Loki deals with rebellion without his brother at his side - a war that grows to threaten Midgard as well. Now three realms hang on the bond between two false brothers, who must decide how their realms will stand or fall.
