    Summary

    ATTN: Stark Industries has created its newest tech, the Synergy device. What does the device do, you ask? I’m sorry, but only a select group of people are privileged with that information. I can tell you, however, that one of its unintended side effects resulted in bringing together the most unlikely pairing…

    Alternative Universe where the MCU Avengers are a group of ordinary people (professions notwithstanding) who come together to form Project Synergy. Steve Rogers, a law student, meets Tony Stark, a famous tech celebrity. The two form a serious—and at times, intense—bond, but past issues threaten to tear this relationship apart.

    This works update every Sunday and is accompanied with a running playlist where you can find the songs mentioned in the story.

    Summary

    Tony Stark knows Captain America is his soulmate. He also knows that Steve wouldn’t and couldn’t ever want him, especially when Tony finds out that Bucky Barnes is Steve’s soulmate, and Steve chooses his brainwashed best friend over whatever tentative thing they’d kindled between them. But it’s okay. Tony understands. He’s never the first choice. Howard drilled that into his head enough over his childhood. Although that doesn’t make it hurt any less.
    Or where Tony is self-sacrificing, Steve is oblivious, and there is a distinct lack of communication between our three boys.

     

    Basically, I’ve fallen deep, deep, deep down into this fandom, and need more hurtTony. And also more soulmate fics. And even after gorging myself on every one I could find, it still wasn’t enough and I had to write my own.

    Summary

    Prompt: Shrinking AU – Due to an accident, either magical or scientific, Tony has been shrunk to about five inches tall. He can't do much of anything, but it doesn't stop him from getting into trouble. Bucky ends up having to take care of him, and/or bail him out of some sticky situations. Preferably a getting together fic, and bonus if the team doesn't know Tony is IronMan yet and Tony has to try and cover for that while he's tiny.

    Summary

    He’s tired, so tired of waiting, tired of touches with no meaning, tired of holding his breath when Steve’s in the room, tired of keeping this love to himself.

     

    “I can’t—I can’t, if you don’t mean it.”

    ***

    Tony comes home exhausted after an SI event. Steve acts as welcoming committee. It's an old, careworn routine they've perfected over the years, but tonight ends up going in a very different direction.

    Summary

    Tony ducks into the bathroom, and as soon as he’s out of sight, Steve’s hand reaches down to grip at his cock to keep it from leaking. He can’t tell if his underwear is wet or if he’s imagining it. He squirms in place for a moment, bobbing up and down to get his bladder under control. It wants release now, and even though he knows standing outside the door means he’ll be able to hear Tony going, he can’t help but wait there to be let inside.

    Steve can’t stop moving his legs the whole time Tony is in there. His jiggling them both furiously, anything to stop the pee from coming out in his pants. He can’t help but think about how long he’s been holding now — thirteen hours? Fourteen? Oh, god, he’s just dying to go, now. His bladder feels full and round in his abdomen, and he’s at home, the one place he’s absolutely comfortable peeing.

    He hears the toilet flush and the sink turn on, and he doesn’t hesitate. He swings open the bathroom and then slams it shut behind him, stumbling over to the toilet. He barely notices Tony’s shocked face in his rush, and Tony doesn’t even get to say anything before Steve is pulling his dick out and pissing full force into the toilet.

    Summary

    tony stark is rich and popular and an arrogant asshole. in other words: his iq rivals einstein's, he's slept with most of his "friends" at least once, and he's so fucking lonely that sometimes he wakes up in the middle of the night and cries into the cold sheets on the empty side of the bed.

    it's no different at SHIELD boarding school, at first. half the student body hates him, half want to be him, nothing new. that is, until tony accidentally breaks james barnes's prosthetic arm, and he suddenly finds the most vulnerable pieces of himself surfacing whether he wants them to or not.

    Summary

    Touch-starvation, colloquially known as ‘skin hunger’ occurs when a person doesn’t receive enough physical contact, or touch, from other people.
    People who are touch deprived are more lonely and less happy, and more likely to experience stress or depression than people with fulfilled touch requirements. These people tend to have less social support and experience more mood and anxiety disorders. They are also more likely to experience alexithymia, a condition that impairs ability to express and interpret emotions. They are also more likely to have preoccupied or fearful-avoidant attachment style and therefore are less likely to form secure attachments with others in their lives. Research has shown that people need at least 8 meaningful touches a day to maintain health.

    Tony freaking Stark does not need a hug of all things, to function. He was perfectly fine without human contact. And with lying to himself. So he pushed on, ignoring the screaming in his cells and the tremors coursing through his body.

    Or, Tony is touch-starved and too stubborn to ask for a hug

    (5 times Tony needed a hug and one time he actually fucking asked)

    Summary

    Tony’s always had a complicated relationship with his shifted form. Which, considering the general consensus on shifters is that your shift is the window to your soul, insinuates some uncomfortable things about how Tony views himself, but he chooses not to dwell on that for too long.

    It’s just that, well, his animal is not the most loved animal there is. Because Tony is a raven shifter.

    Raven, the animal that most people associate with bad luck, ill omens, and death.

    And after Afghanistan, things only get more complicated

    Summary

    If Tony couldn’t be a part of Peter’s life, he didn’t want him to know. He didn’t want Peter to grow up wondering about Tony. He didn’t want Peter to grow up thinking that his own father had left him behind.

    And still, the facts were unknown. Yet, Tony saw his own eyes staring back at him that day. He saw his smile, and he heard his laugh. He saw his future for a brief moment in time. Peter Parker was meant to be a part of Tony Stark’s life.

    or

    Tony Stark is Peter's biological father, but he is not granted guardianship after the death of Peter's parents. Tony is forced to watch Peter grow up from afar.

    Summary

    They say admitting your mistakes is half the battle. But what happens when everything you’ve done seems to be a mistake?

    Tony’s been thinking that a lot recently. It’s not like he’s directly suicidal, or anything, it’s just that he wouldn’t exactly mind if he died right now. That’s all. He wouldn’t mind if the glass shattered under his touch as he leaned a little too hard on the window panes of his office. He wouldn’t mind if both jet engines failed and they were sent spiraling into the north atlantic. It all seemed so unimportant anyways.

    (Sokovia happens, and the weeks following aren’t pretty.)

    Tags will be updated as story continues.

    (I've been told there's enough exposition to cover what you missed, but if you haven't seen Fairy Tail or read Ripples, you'll still be a bit confused.)

    Also, I REALLY love tags. Sorry about that.

    Summary

    Steve and Bucky should've known better than to leave Tony behind, but now they had to pay the price for their hurt sweetheart. And hopefully convince him that this time, they were there to stay.

    (Sequel to Solo Lodge by Reioka. Recommend you go read that first, because this is a direct sequel to it. It's super good!)
