    Summary

    “You want me to join you two in bed?” Natasha asks, a little sceptically.

    Tony and Pepper exchange a look. “Yes,” they both say, simultaneously.

    Natasha narrows her eyes. “Why?” she demands.

    Tony looks at Pepper again; they had a very long, very serious discussion about this prior to even bringing it up with Natasha, and they wouldn’t have even broached the topic with her unless they were absolutely certain of each other’s’ motives.

    Pepper gestures Tony to talk, and he rolls his eyes.

    Tony simply shrugs. “We like you; we want you; we think the sex would be good. Did you want anything else?” he asks, lightly.

    Summary

    “What the hell’s going on here?” Tony demands, as he storms into the common room of the compound.

    Clint crosses his arms over his chest, shouldering Wanda, who curls in on herself, towards Steve, who wraps a comforting arm around her shoulders.

    He barely resists the urge to give them a look of disgust.

    “These fine young men are trying to take Wanda away.”

    “What?” Tony’s brow furrows. “Why?” he looks at the suited men expectantly.

    The man in front exchanges an uncertain look with his companion.

    “Mr Stark, look, we’re very sorry about this, but our superiors were very clear. Ms Maximoff has to be brought in for questioning regarding her involvement with HYDRA and Ultron. There’s no other way this happens,” the man explains, tentatively.

    “Look, Agent… Michaelson, is it?” Tony peers at the identification badge that the man promptly flashes at him. “I understand that you’re only doing your job, and great job, but, uh, that’s not going to happen. You can push it, but it’s not gonna end well for you guys. It might be better if you just went home,” he says, firmly.

     

     

    Written for the "Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch" square (A3) for the Tony Stark Bingo 2019.

    Summary

    Tony can't get himself back from Siberia, and it takes the night for him to be rescued. While waiting to see if he'll die of hypothermia, he realises something for the first time. It wasn't that he failed because he hadn't tried hard enough. He had failed because he had tried too hard. His so-called team-mates had formed the habit of blaming Tony for everything because he had let them. He had shouldered the blame, let them attack him without consequence, and cleaned up after their mess, all so they could continue to feel self-righteous in peace. But it wasn't just him they were attacking, and saving the world didn't give them a free pass to be the very bullies that Steve claimed to fight against.

    Tony woke up in hospital, still sustained by the relief of his realisation. Things sucked, but they would get better. He was Tony Stark, and no challenge was too much for him. It was odd how much easier it was to plot when he actually did intend ways to manipulate the ex-Avengers into falling in line. And since that was what they seemed convinced he was doing all along, they didn't deserve a warning that it would now be true.
