    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.

    My notes: Best pro-Team Iron Man fic without making a straw man (or too much of one) of the other side. Tony refuses to take any advantage that his enemies could someday use to nefarious purposes.

    Summary

    No one knows what the Council is hiding, but the effects ripple throughout the galaxy. Anakin knows he is loved. Former slaves are freed. A long-lost Master and his Padawan are returned to the Temple. No one understands how Obi-Wan Kenobi does these things, but they are grateful for it anyway.

    A time-travel story from the points of view of everyone but the time travelers. Also my first ever fanfiction. Updates every Monday now, starting 4/20!

    Summary

    Ned returns from the Tower of Joy with not only Lyanna, but the knights who'd been guarding her.

    Jaime has a more complicated time navigating his fall from honor with so many knights he'd once admired still around. Especially Ser Arthur, whose presence proves particularly tricky to deal with.

    Summary

    {{ From the Library of Infinity }}

    Tony finds himself a decade in the past, having just revealed to the world that he's Iron Man. He upgrades JARVIS, and together they work to put out a series of fires, new and remembered, while also attempting to figure out a way to defeat Thanos.

    Or: Tony's not the hero type. To suggest otherwise would be outlandish and fantastic, clearly. Yet somehow, he's the one that's responsible for saving the universe.
