Space AUs

Space AUs

do you have space au recs? like space opera, space pirates, star trek, etc.?

There are some really great ones with the boys off in space.  Here are a few suggestions!


Straight On Till Morning by @sineala: Tony Stark resigned his commission in Starfleet five
years ago, after a disastrous away mission, and he swore he’d never go
back. He just wants to be left alone to build warp engines in peace. But
the universe has more in store for him than that, as he discovers when
Admiral Fury comes to him with an offer he could never have expected and
cannot possibly refuse: first officer and chief engineer aboard the
all-new USS Avenger, a starship of Tony’s own design. What’s more, the
Avenger’s captain is Steve Rogers, hero of the Earth-Romulan War.
Believed dead for over a century, Steve is miraculously alive… and
very, very attractive. But nothing is ever easy for Tony. As he wrestles with his secret
desire for his new captain and his not-so-dormant fears, another mission
starts to go wrong, and Tony becomes aware that Steve has secrets of
his own – and the truth could change everything.

Staring at the Sun by snoozingkitten:
Steve is a man on the run from his past, unsure if he even wanted a
future. Tony is a man with a dangerous secret. They meet like a train
crash and then all bets are off; it’s all everyone can do to survive.
Space AU. Western AU.

Le Ciel Attendra by antigrav_vector: The 3rd war against the Chitauri is well underway and
Captain Steve Rogers is not overly pleased when Governor Fury throws a
wrench into the works. He and his team are a well-oiled machine and they
don’t need anyone else working with them. Not to mention that now is
possibly the worst possible time to start breaking in new team members.When Steve meets said team members, it gets even worse.

Catching a Falling Star by tsukinofaerii:
When Tony was sixteen, he got to meet his hero, Captain Steve Rogers,
the Empire’s not-literally-golden boy from the Continuity Wars. When he
was twenty-seven, the aforementioned Captain turned Pirate picked him up
at the outer edges of space. It would have been a good time to
appreciate the abundant nudity that came from spending too much time
with space colonists, but Tony had bigger worries than even Rogers’
amazing hip-to-shoulder ratio. Something was sending the star-encircling
computers that power the galaxy into a tailspin, and it was going to
take a lot more than luck and skill to clean the mess up.

to dream of the stars by @gottalovev:
Fifteen years after a summer romance at Space Academy that left them
brokenhearted, Steve and Tony meet again as astronaut candidates.

Free Floating in Space by vassalady:
Tony runs a small salvaging business in the backwater territory of Outer
Centaurus. When scavenging a long abandoned space station leads to an
unexpected find, it begins a long journey for Tony, Steve, and the rest
of the Iron Bird crew as they stand on the edge of war.

Made of Stars by @kagekanecavi: Deep in the heart of World War II, Steve, Bucky, the
Invaders, and the Howling Commandos are getting close to finding the
portion of Hydra controlled by the Red Skull and defeating him. As they
close in, they receive intelligence that he has am unusual escape method
– a machine powered by a mysterious gem that might give Skull the
ability to move through time. This seems like a red herring to them, but
when Steve and Bucky corner Skull, he uses it.Steve and Bucky
follow Skull and the next thing Steve knows, he’s waking up on a
spaceship called the Avenger and the Red Skull – who went back in time,
not forward – has ruled the known galaxy for the last several hundred
years. Now he’s working with the rebels to usurp the Red Skull and
trying to navigate this strange, amazing new world with his new friends
and companions at his side.

USS Marvel by thesilverwitch:
In the black depths of the Unova galaxy a beacon of light can be seen.
It is the starship USS Marvel, commanded by Captain Steve Rogers,
Starfleet’s Golden Boy. Marvel’s First Officer is the brilliant Tony
Stark, chief engineer and son of Howard Stark, one of Starfleet’s
founders. Working alongside them in their journey through space are 438
other crewmen. They are the best of the very best and include Luke Cage
as chief of security, Sam Wilson as chief science officer, Jessica Drew
as chief communications officer and many others.

Problems in Relativity by Muccamukk:
Steve Rogers, captain of the spacecraft America, resents
playing Director Fury’s errand boy, and that’s before the mission to
collect a mysterious package leads to more trouble than he ever wanted.

Come Ride With Me (Eden’s Landing series) by @veldeia: Tony’s had a long and rough week, and when he touches
down at Eden Landing, he just wants a hot shower, a proper meal and ten
hours of sleep—but when he steps out of his battered little ship and
spots Steve, he finds himself perfectly willing to rethink his
priorities.Smutty bingo fill for the prompt “au: western”, though it’s actually AU: Space Western!

Under Stars by juxtapose:
Commander Tony Stark, just kicked off the USS Expedition for mutiny,
finds comfort in an ensign wandering the halls of the USS Quinjeti at
0400 hours. Southern comfort, no less.

Fairbanks, 1960 by stitchy:
Pilots Steve and Tony meet for the first time and fall in love.

The Captain and his Courtesan by @winterstar95: A story of revolution.Captain Steve Rogers is
just trying to pay off his debt to SHIELD, carting cargo from the Rim
worlds to the Inner Belts in his bucket of bolts ship, the Howling Commando.
He keeps a low profile and makes sure his crew is safe and happy. But
the universe has a different plan for the once highly decorated Captain
of the Honor Guard. The universe drops a Courtesan by the name of Tony
Stark into his life. The Captain doesn’t like it, but Bucky convinces
him that providing transport to the most elusive Courtesan in the Guild
could be their ticket to freedom. His crew from the engineer with anger
management issues to the pilot who may be a beautiful but deadly
assassin wants him to take the commission. What ends up being a simple
commission puts his crew in jeopardy and could change all of humanity,
because the Courtesan is not really just a pretty face and the Captain
of the Honor Guard can fall in love far too easily with a man of
conviction – and Tony Stark is a man of conviction.

Ad Astra per Aspera by MonstrousRegiment, Pangea: It’s safe to say most people get off on the wrong foot
with Tony Stark, but it’s also safe to say Steve Rogers makes a
conscious effort to get along with everyone, and people might think one
tendency compensates the other one and equilibrium is achieved. A
neutral ground. That’s not what happens.Or, the story of
how Tony Stark and Steve Rogers met and fell in love.  A space opera
with a lot of cursing, a lot of drinking, and a little bit of singing.

Mining and Misadventures (the Pirates In Space Remix) by Woad:
Tony and Rhodey pick the wrong outpost to raid. Lucky, someone else is
just as keen as they are to escape the mining facility where they’re
being held.
