Dark Tony

Dark Tony

Do you know of any darker Tony fics? Manipulative, possessive, anything like that?



I love this trope, and there aren’t really a lot of fics exploring the darker side of Tony’s personality.  However, I do have a few suggestions.


Obviously, heed the warnings on these fics as they do deal with darker subject matter.

Watch Your Light Go Out by @elise509​:   The incident in Washington D.C. is not the first time The Winter Soldier has tracked Steve Rogers. Nor will it be the last

Metal Love by bellacatbee:  AU – Tony came back from Iraq changed. Instead of becoming Iron Man, he became something else. Something twisted and dark. Steve wants to stop him but he finds himself caught by Tony in more than one way.

Under Duress by daphnomancy: Programmed worry clouded Steve’s dead, grey eyes. His face made the expression genuine, but it wasn’t like it was during the day. The worry Steve wore when he accidentally spilled a glass of milk or was hearing about a new operation from Maria Hill looked almost like this. But his eyes were clear then, blue. The way they were supposed to be. They were different now.A fic commission where a very evil Tony develops a way to control Steve and use him however he wants, making him forget each time. Extreme non-con elements and angst.

Mirror, Mirror by captainshellhead and vibraniumstark: Tony should have known something was off the moment Steve kissed him.Or, in which Evil Alternate-Dimension Steve and Tony coerce Tony into a threesome.

And Nowhere to Go by Nonymos: He gave a mocking, dirty smirk. “Basically, Rogers, you need to be worked hard and put away wet.”Steve’s gut did something strange when he heard those words, but he absolutely refused to acknowledge it as anything else than fury.
Tony wants to find out about Steve’s limits. Steve never knew how to back down from a fight.

Living On Your Breath by @sineala​:   The Avengers have faced Onslaught and come home. The team has assembled again. And Steve is finally together with Tony. They’re in love. Everything is perfect. But this happiness is all too brief, as Tony is kidnapped by forces unknown. Steve rushes off to rescue Tony, only to find that Tony has been brainwashed and turned against him. Now Steve, captured and tortured by the man he loves, must sacrifice everything he has to stop Tony from becoming a monster. Their relationship will never be the same again… if they both get out of here alive.

That Boy is a Monster by mitochondrials:  Amora realizes Tony’s particular obsession with a certain Captain Rogers far later than she would have expected. It suits her all the same.

Belonging by Arbraza:  Captain America wakes up in a world where he is a slave to the man who spent millions to recover him. (Not a secret that this was a big inspiration for The Prize)

Take My Body Home by @kiyaar​:  After the events of Superior Iron Man, Tony sells Extremis to the highest bidder and finds himself living as an expatriate in Russia.Steve’s never been good at letting go.

Anatomy of a Moral Man by ShyOwl (WiP):  At a young age Tony understood he was not meant to be a hero and the world, he believes, is far better for it. With his rule now set in stone, his life is finally settling down. That is until something was found buried underneath the ice.Tony may not be a hero but that did not stop him from falling in love with one.


Thirty Pieces of Silver by Fluffypanda:

Tony Stark has betrayed the Ultimates and nothing is what Steve thought it was.
