hey!! do you have any recommended a/b/o stony fics? thank u in advance!! (also please don’t shy way from mpreg it’s my guilty pleasure)
A/B/O can definitely be an interesting trope, I’ve discovered. I didn’t think I’d enjoy it, and here we are! Here are some I’ve enjoyed, though please note that these tend not to be particularly of the fluffy variety. Due to the nature of A/B/O, make sure to check the warnings.
Also check out the recs from @mushroomhobbit who has a great list.
PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT AND KUDOS FOR YOUR AUTHORS!
Never Is a Promise by manic_intent:
Steve had to admit that he had some reservations about how the New Century handled the social balance between alphas and omegas.
To Shield From the Storm by @polizwrites (WiP):
The Avengers have gone their separate ways after the Battle of New York and Tony Stark is on his own in the Tower. He’s successfully kept his omega status secret from all but a very few for decades; the suppressants have (mostly) done their job, but not for much longer.
Learning to team up with Captain America – possibly the most famous alpha of the 20th century and someone Tony’s already managed to alienate – is going to be just that much more difficult, now, isn’t it?
While We Pretend to Sleep by Typo66:
Tony pretends to be an alpha. Then he forgets he had been pretending. One thing he remembers is Steve. Steve tries to help out in his old fashioned, ethically strict way. Tony likes making big gestures. He has never been subtle.
Cornered by Goda:
For the prompt: A/B/O AU (but where Alphas/Betas/Omegas have equal rights and there is no obvious prejudice). Tony is Steve’s Omega. Newly mated pairs experience feelings of possessiveness, protectiveness and horniness. But the serum enhances it. Cue Steve trying to keep Tony locked up in his room protected by his shield while being embarrassed about the whole situation, and Tony being amused by it.
For Your Eyes Only by @sarah-has-blue-eyes: Every soldier looks forward to mail call. But Alpha Steve Rogers gets a big surprise with the letter his Omega, Tony Stark, has sent him.
Howling Commando by AnonEhouse: In this apocalyptic world survival takes precedence over nearly everything. Throw in Alphas, Omegas, soul bonds, and shape-shifting, and it’s a wonder Steve Rogers remains such a level-headed person. Tony Stark is still a specially flaky snowflake, of course.(The non-con is one scene at the beginning & is more accurately described as dubious consent. He consented beforehand, on the fuck or die principle, when he was capable of giving consent.)
Inkling by @theactualcluegirl: “Enough!“ The doctor snapped, no trace of chummy comfort left in his voice as he shoved the hypospray at another of the nurses. “We have orders! MPs, get topside, now. Hooper, get another fifty of Xyladine into the Captain. Dacy and Roccio, prep the gurney. Seames, wipe your goddamned face off and prep for blood draw.”“But Major, the muster-“Steve felt the cuff on his right arm begin to tear, blood slicking his wrist against the metal’s bite.
The doctor rounded on his aide, teeth bared. “Did. I. Stutter?”Another one tried, “Sir, the alphas will need-”“The alphas will fight, Corporal,” The doctor snatched the hypospray back. “Rut haze or no, they’ll fight. That’s what we keep them around for, now get that man unconscious, or I will-”
White Lace, Red Ribbons and Gold Rings by Agent C: It’s a few days before Tony’s heat. Steve took time off early to prepare the house for his omega’s on-coming heat. However, Tony seems to have other plans for them.(Or: pre-heat sex on the dining room table because of reasons + Tony with a corset piercing)
Batteries Not Included by @robintcj:
Tony is trying to get through his heat when the batteries in his vibrator die, and he needs new ones. Who will help him?
The Other Side of the Door by AnonEhouse: While a few major character deaths are mentioned, they are either off-stage, or in the past, with no details. Other versions of the characters are alive and well in this story. I decided a warning tag would be misleading, but I wanted to give readers a heads up in case even that much would be upsetting.Tony Stark died during the battle for New York, but three months later a Tony Stark from another dimension falls into Steve’s arms. Tony desperately needs Steve’s help in order to survive long enough for his baby to be born. It’s just common decency on Steve’s part. Isn’t it? The fact that he finds Tony attractive has nothing to do with it. After all, he’s not the Steve who Tony married. The Avengers are just… well, you wouldn’t turn away a pregnant man who had no place to go, would you?
In a rut by @rouge-winter : “You don’t have to do this, Tony.” Pepper said as she tightened her white knuckled grip on the clipboard in her arms. “I’m sure we can find someone else.”“Yes. I do.” Tony said, surprised that his voice came out steadier than he expected.Or the one where Steve goes into an Alpha Rut and Tony is the only one who can help.
Neither Independent nor Serious by @chibisquirt: Steve doesn’t think it’s unreasonable of him to be alarmed by Tony’s disclosure, because Tony’s his teammate.It isn’t unheard of for a man to switch his dynamic; it mostly happens in cases of high stress, when the hormones produced would instigate either an advance to or a retreat from the extreme ends of the spectrum. Plenty of soldiers he’d known had gone off to battle as Betas and come home Alphas; a few came home Omegas, instead, and back before the days of suppressants, they got an honorable discharge.But no one goes straight from Omega to Alpha, or, for that matter, the reverse, which means that Tony has to have changed dynamic not once, but twice. And that is rare.
Breaking Tony by @awesomeavocadolove: In a world where everyone is born beta, leaders chosen by newly founded packs become alpha. Omegas are not born or made, they are broken.Steve wants Tony to become the Avenger’s omega.
An Alpha for Christmas by @captainneverever:
Lonely Steve spends the days before Christmas pining for Tony.
Our Dual Nature by @winterstar95:
He will do anything for Tony in this room. Outside, he’s Captain America/Steve Rogers, inside he’s only omega – Tony’s omega.
You Kiss Me So Sweetly by romanoff: The usual story: Tony’s an omega, Steve’s an alpha. Drug induced heat, and then they’re at it like rabbits.Or, the one where Tony has a fucking awful birthday, but then Steve makes it okay.
Closer (I need you so much closer) by downuptime: Tony Stark was pretty sure he was the luckiest man in the whole wide world. First, his dad. Then Afghanistan. Obi. Then the palladium poisoning thing. Pepper breaking up with him.And now, he was stuck under a building with Captain America of all people. His childhood crush, who thought he was an immature, reckless idiot with no regard for anyone except himself.To be exact, they were four levels underground in the garage of a building ninety stories high. Which had collapsed.Oh, and he was going into heat.Perfect.
In Tandem by RurouniHime: “Want a blood test,” Steve manages, because on the third night of their Week, he can think more clearly than he’s been able to for days. Tony’s scent is strong in his nostrils, cloying in a strange, sleek way he yearns after like a tune he nearly recognizes. “If you’re getting sick—”“God.” Tony shifts bodily up into him, clenching around him. “Yes, Mom.”
You’re Not Stubborn (Just Impossible) by @wordsplat:
Steve’s an alpha, Tony’s an omega. Biology should take care of the rest, right? Except, Tony’s not anything like TV taught Steve omegas were–or like anyone else Steve’s ever met, actually–and Steve should really learn to just keep his mouth shut about that. Also, it doesn’t help that Tony’s not too keen on the idea of alphas. Or Steve. Yeah, this bonding thing looked a whole lot easier on TV.
Fall In Ecstasy by @51st:
There were…things on the internet. Most of them, well, made Steve realize that though people today seemed to be more accepting of differences, being an Omega or an Alpha wasn’t something you talked about unless you started up a website and made people give you their credit card number first.
Hahaha, yes, thanks Anon! ETA, I also have written a couple of A/B/O fics!
Celestial Navigation and assorted ficlets:
18 year old Omega!Tony finds himself Bonded to Captain Steve Rogers. He isn’t happy about it until he is.
This Is Not a Drill and This Is Not a Drill: Honeymoon Edition: “Can I—can I see him? I mean meet him. Uh…welcome him to the team?” Tony clarified, probably not very well, he knew.“Well…there’s a bit of an issue with that,” Fury said, and Tony figured this was where Fury got to whatever it was that had really forced his hand and made him call Tony in, knowing how much the man detested having to do so. “You see, well. He was suspended in the ice for nearly seventy years,” Fury began. Tony nodded along, because he could do math.“I’m sure he has a lot of adjusting to do—“ Tony started.“Seventy years,” Fury repeated, cutting Tony off and leaning back in his chair and making it rock slightly. “Of no suppressants.”“Oh,” Tony managed to choke out past the lump that had suddenly formed in his throat. “Oh.”
