Genius Tony

Genius Tony

Hiya, recc’ing queen!! My insomnia has been a bitch lately. Any chance you could rec some fics where people actually recognize just how smart Tony is?

Hmmm….well, he is definitely smart in a lot of fics.  I am trying to think of one that I remember that really focused on how Tony’s  mind worked…does anyone remember that? It was a neat take on it.  There are also the BAMF!Tony recs, which tend to have smart!Tony.  Maybe followers have other ideas? Anyway, here are a couple of suggestions for you.


Prototype by D:
The arc reactor prototype was going to run Stark Tower for a year on
self-sustaining energy.  It was expanded to cover providing energy to
the hospitals after the Battle of Manhattan.  Distribution is now
beginning with an arc reactor to be placed in Chicago.  So, of course,
this is the reason the arc reactor is the topic of discussion…

Four (or Five) Reasons for Kidnapping Tony Stark by @scifigrl47: There are four reasons for kidnapping Tony Stark.
Tony’s sick of all of them.  Well, there’s potentially a fifth, but it’s
highly unlikely that Captain America will suddenly fulfill THAT
fantasy.  Tony’s deeply disappointed about that.   Steve Rogers, as always, is oblivious.   At least, that is, until someone who isn’t him kidnaps Tony.  Then he’s just pissed.

Burn by @orbingarrow: When Steve Rogers burns his dinner and sets off the sprinklers in the
ROTC building, Tony Stark saves the day.  Except this Tony Stark isn’t
the famous son of a billionaire, he’s just a college Freshman on night
maintenance for Work Study.Or is he? Featuring Phantom of the Opera references, a Human Centipede of office equipment, and lots and lots of fluff!

W.I.P.E. (series) by tsukinofaerii: An AU of the events covering
SIEGE and immediate after. When Tony is rebooted after deleting his
brain, he’s left with no memory of anything, and lingering programs that
keep him from finding out everything he missed. Sometimes you just need
to start over, but there’s always a place in every plan for a backup.

All Nighter by Agent C:
Tony may be a genius but not a perfect genius. English. He sucks at English. Bestfriend Steve s here to help!

Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful, Beautiful Boy by mybrotherharry: The first time Jarvis holds little Anthony in his arms,
he is overwhelmed by emotion that is surprising in its intensity. When
little Anthony’s palm curves around his finger, Jarvis ducks his head to
keep the others from seeing the wetness in his eyes. “Hello Master Anthony,” he whispers into the little ear, tugging the bundle of blankets closer to his heart.

It’s all in the mind (series) by @inukagome15: The adventures of Tony as a mutant; how he learned to accept himself and his subsequent growth into his own. Hijinks ensue. (I feel like this features a lot of Smart!Tony)

Tony Stark: Appliance Whisperer by Alex51324:
After Tony over-reacts to some SHIELD agents breaking a microwave oven,
Steve begins to wonder if there’s something the team should know.
