Howard Traumatizes Tony
do u have any fics where tony has ptsd/trauma from howard?
I do like the Howard-is-evil trope. Or, at least, he wasn’t a good father. Complicated, I guess, but I think there was a lot going on in that relationship that wasn’t healthy. There are a lot of fics with something along these lines tbh, but, anyway, here are some suggestions!
WHATEVER HAPPENED IN THE PAST, LEAVE COMMENTS AND KUDOS NOW!

Wild or Tamed by FangirlingManaged:
Steve finds a suicide note from a seventeen-year-old Tony. It’s a shock, to say the least.
Requiem Mass (in D Minor) by Valmasy @trickyarchangel: In hindsight, Tony should’ve have seen it coming.
Nothing ever good happened around Christmas. To be fair, though, he’d
just been a kid, plagued with nightmares. Or:Why the gauntlet never comes off.
When Life Becomes a Play (And I Don’t Know the Role I’ve Been Cast) by firelord_zutara: Months after the Battle of New York, the team moves
into the tower. Tony and Steve keep dancing around each other, but
besides his feelings towards the man, Tony has enough to deal with, what
with trying to come to terms with himself and his own, personal issues.
He struggles through and through, but in the end, there’s only
one person who can save him – the one person he hates the most:
I’m Not Your Victim by Lilipoussis:
When Steve asked Tony about Howard, he didn’t realise the kind of chain
reaction it would cause. The team may notice something is wrong, but it
takes a journalist and an insane demigod to force the truth into the
light, and once the secret it out, the team will never be the same.
Shutting Up, as you wished by awesome_goddess_of_mischief: A careless comment brings out more than anyone could have expected. Can Steve fix it? Or will Iron Man be forever silent?
cracks by starkravingcap:

Take This by Arkada:

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.
These Promises Broken by @missbeckywrites:
“Tony, even if you don’t go talk to him, you have to face the fact that
your father – or at least some version of him – is on this ship right
now. This is happening. Whether you want it or not.”
I’m Fine by Morethancupcake: It’s not a mantra. Not really. It’s not something he explicitly tells himself. No.It’s just… it stuck to him.Fine. He’s fine.
It Matters to Me by Cyane:
Tony doesn’t like having an empty seat to his right.
All Time Lows (series) by Kittyswriting:
Tony grew up in a abusive household, but he put all that behind him. Now
somehow that information has been leaked to the media. Can Steve catch
Tony and help his boyfriend through this?
My Family by ThatRandomWeirdo01:
Each Avenger has their own forbidden topics that they don’t want to talk
about. For Tony, no one is to talk about Afghanistan or his childhood.
But, what happens when the team, whilst spring cleaning, find all of
Tony’s childhood secrets through childhood videos and pictures.
hold the things you wanna say by SailorChibi: Tony is still a consultant, and between SI, the team and SHIELD he’s overworked and exhausted. That’s okay.He
and Steve have been having sex for weeks but that’s all it is, just
sex, and Tony wants more but he’ll never get it and that’s okay. Really.What’s not okay is the fact that Howard Stark has somehow appeared in the future and is the same as always. This is definitely going to fuck up his schedule.
Lesser Demons by sabrecmc: Peggy leaves Steve something in her will. (basically, Steve watches home movies of a young Tony with Howard and everyone and comes to understand Tony a bit better after CACW)
