Thank you so much! Try the Team as Family recs as well, but here are some post-2012 movie recs that you might also enjoy!
DON’T SHOW UP TO TEAM MOVIE NIGHT WITHOUT BRINGING COMMENTS AND KUDOS FOR THE GROUP!
Lessons on How to Be Worthwhile by @pensversusswords: The one where Steve thinks Tony is amazing, and Tony thinks Steve is amazing, but Tony doesn’t think Tony is amazing.Or, Tony has issues with self worth, and Steve wants to fix that.
Bend and Break by @missbeckywrites: The first two times Tony invited him to stay in Stark Tower, Steve said no. But that was before he realized that sometimes even the great Tony Stark needed help.
While Everyone’s Lost (the Battle Is Won) by jukeboxhound: Steve closes his eyes in 1945 and wakes up in 2012.Well. They certainly didn’t put that on the recruiting poster.
Dreaming Electric by jukeboxhound: New York City is still rebuilding in the wake of the Chitauri army when the biotech virus Extremis is released, upgrading a lone domestic terrorist into a posthuman threat. Tony would’ve been happy to keep going on playing with alien tech in his lab, saving average citizens as Iron Man, and pretending not to notice these other people moving into his tower, but sometimes a person just can’t have nice things.
A Very, Very, Very Fine House by wanttobeatree: The Avengers take initiative. Or, the story of how a group of remarkable people came together to drink cocktails, eat ice-cream and wait for Fury’s call. Post-movie.
In the Stillness of Remembering by @elise509: Steve Rogers is a reminder of a past that Tony Stark would rather forget. But when Steve’s own ghosts suddenly become the present, Tony finds he and Steve need each other to face the future.
Not Just a River in Egypt (Tony is most certainly not in denial) by theoddoodisnude: “You are most definitely not in love with me, Cap, what you are experiencing is called cabin pressure,” Tony explains, because he has a rational train of thought and he’s met enough shrinks to have figured out their tactics by now. “And possibly, you know, sexual frustration, because it doesn’t matter at all that you’re, like, America’s national icon, Fury still won’t let you out. I know that, I see that, I acknowledge your pain, I feel with you, Cap, believe me, I do. And I get it, because I am a very good-looking fellow and we spend a lot of time together, stuck in this tower, and it’s easy to–”“I am,” Steve cuts off, equal parts amused and frustrated and concerned. “In love. With you. Tony, I’m in love with you.”
Someone to Love by @some-blue-jack: What does it matter that it’d been because of Loki and his damn magic? He’d fallen in love with Steve once. He can do it again.
bedrock and brick by lyra_wing: Immediate sequel to the movie, wherein Tony builds Avengers Tower. Or plays interior designer, take your pick.
Supernanny by ashinan: The one thing Coulson has never quite understood is where he gained the title of Supernanny.
the best of life is but intoxication by kellifer_fic: Where Steve and Darcy are platonic BFFs and Tony and Clint just aren’t buying it.
life as a treehouse (series) by kellifer_fic: Tony finds out that when it comes to Avengers, you can’t adopt just one.
How to Royally Fuck Up the Avengers Tower by theappleppielifestyle: “Hey, Cap, it’s Tony. Stark. Iron Man. Uh, yeah- I was looking over the designs for your part in the Avengers Tower, and I am pretty sure Fury will castrate me if I put in some stripper poles, so I was wondering if you could swing by and see if everything is, uh. Dandy. Did people say ‘dandy’ in the 40s? I have no idea. Ah, anyway, drop by anytime. Yep. Bye.“
You Can’t Plan on the Heart by kashmir: Set post-movie, Steve and Tony spend time together the night after a mission almost goes wrong. Very much PWP.
Rom-Commed by Fate (or JARVIS) by leashy_bebes: The best thing about being an Artificial Intelligence is the ability to parse, filter and modify the things people say until you’ve got the cause to do exactly what you wanted in the first place. Or, in which JARVIS cock blocks Tony into having an actual relationship.
The Worst You Can Do is Harm by theladyingrey42: So what if Tony Stark has a folder of pictures JARVIS recognizes alternately as Project Rebirth (when Tony’s sober), Project Hero Worship (when he’s tipsy), and Project Spank Bank (when he’s drunk)? No big deal. Unless Loki destroys Avengers Mansion and Hawkeye ends up finding the damn pictures and showing them to Steve. And if there’s maybe a teeny-tiny misunderstanding about why precisely Tony has them.In which Loki is a dick, Thor is the bestest drinking buddy ever, and Tony has a hard time saying what he means.
Irreplaceable by orphan_account: There are obvious downsides to being the only member of the Avengers who is not a super soldier, a god, or a super assassin, and does not Hulk out when aggravated.
The most obvious one is that when villains want bait, they’ve got a go-to guy.Tony already knew Mondays sucked. He did not need his opinion reinforced this way.
It Will Probably Accelerate by northatlantic (breakthecitysky): So the working title of this was variously ‘mixtape,’ ‘how steve rogers got his groove back’ and ‘oh my god quit thinking of things to add.’ Steve’s perspective of the assembly of the Avengers after the dust has settled and the rebuilding begins.Title from Bob Mould’s Circles, which is, was and ever shall be The Steve Song in my head.
Stockholm Syndrome and Other Drugs by Alchemy Alice: In which Coulson is his frighteningly competent self, but this time, the Avengers notice.
Silence Suppression by rufflefeather: They have overcome the Chitauri and New York slowly recovers. Steve feels a little lost and has trouble accepting his own sexuality, Tony carefully begins to show him how.
Cardamom is the perfect spice by lotesse: Stark – Tony – looks over at him and smiles, and there’s something so sweet in that smile that Steve feels sucker-punched, feels like he can’t breathe, he can’t think, because who knew that Tony Stark could smile like that, open and amused and affectionate? “Yeah?” Tony says, teasing, and Natasha cuffs the back of his head.
Drive Me Wild (You’re the First) by luniosity: In which Tony repairs Steve’s suit and they talk a lot and then first kisses happen.
Let Daylight Enter In by Elenothar: Post Avengers movie. Tony had figured that his life would go back to normal, or what passes as normal in Tony Stark’s life, after the Chitauri Invasion – he was sadly mistaken. Fury isn’t getting off his back about this whole team thing (never mind that most of his team mates are notable only through their absence), Pepper is dangerously close to a nervous breakdown due to his latest world-saving stunt (which really doesn’t make his life any easier), terrorists have it out for him and the world by proxy, and Steve Rogers continues to defy all his expectations, somehow firmly inserting himself in Tony’s life – all the while being ridiculously attractive and possibly the most oblivious person on the planet. Oh, and let’s not forget the blue goo, there’s blue goo, too. Sometimes Tony really hates his life.
