Hey, I love your recs! Do you have any particular recs on the topic “Tony’s relationship with media” – outed sex tapes, stories where the team has misconceptions based on PublicFacade!Tony, or anything else?

Those are always great fics b/c they usually have some version of an outsider’s POV for Stony, which I love.  Here are some suggestions that you might enjoy!


Being Wrong by Nix (CrimsonQuills):

Prompt: “Steve isn’t in it for the money.”

just another morning in the Stark mansion by calciseptine:

At 7:34 a.m. on a random Tuesday in October, one enraged Pepper Potts interrupts Steve Rogers’ and Tony Stark’s simple eggs-and-toast breakfast.

Good Morning, America by miss_whimsy:

Steve is a much better actor than anyone gives him credit for.

Sex, Lies and Newsprint by nightwalker:

A year of Cap/Tony romance as told by the tabloids.

Keeping Secrets by @kurowrites:

Tony is forced to go to a live-interview by Pepper. He has no idea what it’s going to be about (not that he cares). Unfortunately, a question that Tony was not prepared to answer pops up.

Paparazzi by Tacuma:

The paparazzi are driving Tony, billionaire and most wanted bachelor, crazy. He is so tired of their accusations that he tells them how things really are.

Supernova by kayura_sanada:

Rumors about the details of their relationship have been circulating ever since Steve Rogers and Tony Stark brought their relationship out to the public.

Of Sex Tapes and Their Unexpected Consequences by chemically_yours:

After Tony’s sex tape hits the news, Steve finds himself curious.
Takes place during/after Ultimates 3.

Disclaimer by @brandnewfashion: “Someone got a hold of our sex tape.“”…which one?“

Three Little Birds by parkerleap:

The Avenger’s attend a press conference. Something is said to Tony, and Steve doesn’t like it.

Stop the Presses! by Thette: “Welcome to the twenty-first century, Stevie-pie. Let me guess, we’re having a sordid affair and Fox News calls you Captain Unamerican?“Steve sputtered and coughed. “What’s Fox News?” he asked when he had gathered his wits again.“JARVIS, relevant headlines.”“Of course, sir. Your description of Fox News was most accurate. MSNBC went with the formal ‘Billionaire Tony “Iron Man” Stark with Avengers Teammate Steve “Captain America” Rogers Seen at Maria Stark Foundation Gala’, but their gossip blog wrote an article titled ‘Hot-hot-hottest Superhero Gay Action?’ On CNN, you currently come in second after Lindsay Lohan, with the headline ‘Tony Stark’s New Fling?’ The New York Times only mention you and Captain Rogers as a possible explanation to Stark Industries’ twenty point stock gain.“

If the Words are True by MsErmestH:

The press has a field day when they discover some dirty love letters Steve wrote before the war. Fortunately, Tony has some experience with that.

All-American Pride by @imafriendlydalek: The press seems to think Tony and Steve are in a relationship, and so many people seem so happy about it that Steve just runs with it, dragging Tony along. To a Pride rally.Whoever gave Steve that flag he’s wrapped himself in deserves a medal.

Oh boo HOO Tony Stark’s billionaire life is sooooo hard by Heartithateyou:

Its only supposed to be a press conference, so how does one reporter make Tony question everything he is.

My Question, His Answer by kitteekatz69:

Q and A with the Avengers. When a reporter asks Tony a particularly mean question, Steve steps up to defend him.

My World by Dophe:

Tony is freaking out about the press conference that will publicize his new relationship with Captain America. As for Steve…well he knows exactly how to diffuse the situation.

Off the Press by flightinflame:

Tony’s life is finally beginning to go the way he wants it to. Then the press find out about him and Steve. They are convinced that Captain America deserves better and Tony thinks he might have to agree.

Tony, Iron Man by Raikishi:

In which Tony’s identity was never revealed and the press gets things more messed up than usual

Mayhem Dressed in a Suit by StarSpangledBucky:

Tony openly blurts out about his sex life with Steve during a press conference. Steve isn’t happy as he watches it live on TV. His anger results in Steve driving to the venue, where he follows Tony into the bathroom and fucks him stupid. Tony doesn’t complain, because angry Steve is the kinkiest thing Tony has ever dealt with. And by the next day, Steve gets payback by making Tony cry on camera.

The Humanization Humiliation by @wordsplat:

In which Tony and Clint get drunk for science, Bruce is sneakier than expected, and Steve almost drops his pants on live national television. Also known as the time the Avengers had to give interviews displaying their human side, which was really not Fury’s best idea.

Ultimates Gay Romance by duc:

Steve was going to kill Tony. And Betty Ross.

Unmasked by @sineala:

All the rifts of the Civil War have been healed, everyone is alive again, and the Avengers can finally relax… and party! It’s time for a marathon viewing of the Avengers TV show! Of course, Tony doesn’t remember what happened in any of the episodes that aired while he was the director of SHIELD, but he’s positive he wouldn’t have approved anything… inappropriate. He absolutely wouldn’t have. As it turns out, Tony shouldn’t think so highly of himself.

The Cover by iLoVSuperman: The front cover of every newspaper always sways public opinion. This fact led Tony to deduce that this was the reason everyone loved Steve so much because he was the media’s darling.Yet that all changes when one of Tony’s disgruntled, ex-employees claims Steve to have sexually assaulted her. With the media’s exaggerated coverage, the people call for Steve’s head. And, with charges pending, Tony knows something just as sensational needs to be done to sway opinion again or Steve will be convicted based on public opinion alone.…Which was how Tony came up with the idea of a fake, gay relationship and it would have been perfect. It was sensational, not just because Steve had not dated any one since he woke, but it was a homosexual relationship with Mr. Conservative and Apple Pie!! The media would froth at the mouth!And it had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Tony had been pinning after his best friend for the last couple of years… Nope. It’s just a coincidence. by lupinus: The one where the Internet is stalking Steve’s day to day life, but that might be okay, because it just keeps bringing him closer to Tony.Or, in which Clint Barton uses the Internet to mock Steve.
