Catch a Falling Knife

Author:geckoholic on AO3

Fic Title: Catch a Falling Knife
Rating: PG13
Universe: MCU
Word Count: 5000
Warnings: Brainwashing, dehumanization and the other issues that come with the Winter Soldier.
Summary: He can't avert his eyes, suddenly. The back of his head prickles with something that wants to be familiarity, recognition, but all it does is confuse him. He doesn't understand. He squints to read the name under the photo on the tiny screen. Steve Rogers.

Pairing(s): Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Clint Barton/Natasha Romanov, Phil Coulson/Pepper Potts
Rating: Mature
Universe: MCU
Word Count: 8,774

Nick & Nat's Unusual Adventure

Artist: lilibel
Art Prompt Title: An Unexpected Adventure

Author: sirona_gs
Fic Title: Nick & Nat's Unusual Adventure
Pairing(s): Natasha Romanova/Nick Fury, background Clint Barton/Phil Coulson
Rating: E
Universe: MCU/The Avengers (Movies), Marvel 616, Agents of SHIELD
Word Count: 13,678
Warnings: Graphic descriptions of violence, blood, more warnings in the AO3 post.
Summary: So this is how you fall into decisions that shape the rest of your life - you hear a cheeky little bastard snarking at you over comms, and somehow decide that trusting them is a good idea. (The fact that it turns out to be one has no bearing on the matter.) Or, the story of how Nick met Natasha and S.H.I.E.L.D. shaped itself around them.
Notes: Please be aware that I have mixed and meshed and twisted Marvel 'verses together so much that I don't even know what's which anymore. This has elements of MCU and Agents of SHIELD and Marvel 616, I have played very fast and loose with ages, and incorporated a lot of different canons into this story. I would like to ask you to suspend disbelief and let yourself be carried along for the adventure. Enormous thanks are due to Lanyon, for betaing this story and checking my comics canon and being so very encouraging and enthusiastic about it. <3 Also, many thanks to RosaLui who took the time to answer my Japanese questions and correct my abysmal vocabulary. You are a star, bb. <3 And, as always, all my love to CinnamonAnna and 17Pansies for being the best and listening to me as I rambled on and on about this story. I don't know what I'd do without you, darlings. <3

Found the Heart of a Lion (in the Belly of the Beast)

Artist: wildfreehearts

Author: sailwithoutwind
Fic Title: Found the Heart of a Lion (in the Belly of the Beast)
Pairing(s): Tony Stark/Pepper Potts, Tony Stark/Steve Rogers, Howard Stark/Maria Stark, Clint Barton/Phil Coulson, Tony Stark & James Rhodes, Tony Stark & Edwin Jarvis, Tony Stark & JARVIS
Rating: M (MPAA: R)
Universe: MCU/616
Word Count: 21,740
Warnings: mentions of torture (e.g. Iron Man); PTSD; anxiety/panic attacks; suggestions of neglect/verbal abuse; canonical character death; violence (not exceeding film portrayals); physical, chronic health issues
Summary: In 1999, Tony Stark is twenty-eight and cocky, and it’s entirely possible he’s been drunk for the better part of the last thirteen years.  “I’ll see you up on the roof in five minutes,” he says to a man whose name he doesn’t bother remembering.  It’s a promise he has no intention of keeping, and he’s never had patience for overweening fans.

Talk about things coming back to bite you in the arse.

Or: The Iron Man Origin Story, in which Tony Stark builds himself some friends and trips over a family.

Spans from Tony's childhood through to 2013; all relationships are background, Clint/Coulson is blink-and-you'd-miss-it, and Steve/Tony can be read as platonic.
Notes: Thanks to sirona_gs and @cinnamonanna for commiseration and cheerleading; thanks to dandelionfire for the beta and for being my sounding board. And, of course, thank you to my very, very patient artist for a fabulous foundation; I doubt this is what you were expecting, but I hope it serves all the same.

Title from Grace Potter & the Nocturnals’ “The Lion the Beast the Beat”. Please see the master post and second "chapter" for all additional notes.

Rating: PG13
Universe: Captain America
Word Count: 6016
Warnings: None
Summary: In which Peggy Carter is an International Woman of Mystery but there's no one more mysterious than Howard Stark. In which there's a meet-cute and melancholy runs through the Brooklyn rain while listening to Leonard Cohen. In which, ultimately, there's room on Peggy's pedestal for three.
Notes: +Title from The Divine Comedy's In Pursuit of Happiness.
+Thanks from lanyon to beardsley for beta-duty and to lilibel for being so wonderful to work with. (and lilibel would like to thank lanyon for being such a fantastic partner in crime)

We're Only An Illusion

Artist: crescent_gaia
Art Prompt Title: Scars From Tomorrow

Fic Title: We're Only An Illusion
Pairing(s): Skye/Ward. But featuring Skye, Ward, May, Coulson, Jemma, Trip and John Garrett
Rating: R
Universe: Agents of SHIELD

Warnings: No archive warnings apply, although there is sex. And a lot of angst.
Summary: It changes everything when you find out someone you trust isn't who you thought they were — every memory, every moment, every encounter.
