IHello!! First off I would like to say thank you for your recommendations, I really appreciate how much time you put into helping us find good reads. I didn’t see this one on the master list…. Tony being kidnapped? More specifically (if you have any, general is find to) him being tortured/raped while kidnapped. thank you so much.
’ve gotten a couple of asks for kidnapped!Tony of different varieties, so I’m going to combine the ask replies into one rec list, but I’ll note where there is non-con involved. So, we have Tony Kidnapped by Steve, Tony Kidnapped by Others, Steve and Tony Kidnapped Together, Kidnapped!Tony with Non-Con Invovled, and Tony Kidnapped as a Child. Whew.
COMMENTS AND KUDOS TO THE RESCUE!
Tony Kidnapped by Steve:
World’s Worst Kidnapper by @captainneverever:
Tony gets kidnapped by the mysterious Steve who doesn’t seem to have the hang of the kidnapping business.
you’ve got me head over heels (on gasoline) by shieldmaidenofrohan:
The one where… a kidnapped Tony Stark meets the Captain, and deals are made in… unusual ways.
Villain Dating Tips–The Beginning by forgetmenotjimmy:
Steve had just needed a temporary hostage to escape from the cops but
there was something about the man he’d taken that made him want to keep
hold of him just a little longer.
Door 72112 by @shetlandowl:
NSFW Monsters Inc. AU where Steve is employed to enter the world of
humans and collect highly desirable hormones and naturally produced
chemicals that fetch a handsome price among his people.
The Captain by arianapeterson19: Tony was convinced that the men who had nabbed him off
the street had the wrong guy; Tony didn’t know any guy named the
Captain. However, if the Captain wanted to show up and tell them that,
Tony would really appreciate it.ORThe one where Steve really should have told his boyfriend he was a mob boss BEFORE he was kidnapped.
Tony is Kidnapped by Others:
R for Ransome by @gottalovev:
Steve receives a ransom note for a newly kidnapped Tony. It’s dread
inducing, he has no idea what to do, but he also wonders why the
abductors chose him, of all people, to make contact.
Better Halves by @kiyaar:
Tony gets kidnapped. Steve does his best to get him back.
In Wolf’s Clothing by @laireshi:
Tony gets kidnapped, but breaking out of his cell isn’t a problem.
Except then he runs into a werewolf, and things stop looking so good.
Do Over by @gottalovev:
Steve woke up six months ago into a future that leaves him indifferent.
There is work, and not much else. His current mission is a basic search
and rescue operation to retrieve an American who was kidnapped by a
terrorist group ten days ago. He won’t let the fact that the hostage is
Howard’s son be a distraction.
if we ever meet again by theappleppielifestyle:
“It’s been two months,” Steve says, voice low. “Rhodey- Colonel. It’s been two months.”
Vanilla Human Problems by manic_intent:
Written for the prompt: “AU where Tony isn’t Iron Man. He’s a consultant
for the avengers, so they still live in his tower, he still
builds/improves their gear, but he never invented Iron Man. He’s still
close to the team, and is still a genius, so as the non-superhero
member, he gets kidnapped. A lot. The team becomes increasingly
protective of Tony.”
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.
De Profundis (The Wartime Romance Remix) by Woad:
Tony was kidnapped and his memories altered in a bid to make him the
next Zemo. He was rescued, but now he’s dealing with the aftermath.
Hot Wheels by @copperbadge:
Steve thought Tony was dead. Tony thinks Steve is being dramatic.
(post-kidnapping feelings happen)
How to Save a Life by @itsallavengers: Steve and Tony fight, which is honestly not that unusual.Then Tony gets kidnapped. And suddenly Steve has a lot more to worry about than their stupid argument.
Kidnapped!(again) by Muccamukk:
These are the worst kidnappers Tony has ever had.
Taste of a Different Life (The Armors and Dragons Remix) by navaan:
Tony Stark knows about nightmares. There is a reason why he numbs
himself to them whenever he can. But then things are taken out of his
hands and he’s faced with nightmares that are a little bit too real.
Iron Man: Unavailable, Tony Stark: In Trouble by navaan:
After what happened in New York the Avengers with the help of Tony Stark
are trying to become more independent. The team has grown together and
for Steve Iron Man is a big part of that, although he has some trouble
getting along with his employer. Then Steve faces a bit of a mystery
when Tony Stark gets kidnapped – and Iron Man, who is supposed to be the
man’s bodyguard when he’s not an Avenger, is nowhere to be found.
Not a Special Snowflake by AnneHiggins:
Tony Stark is no one’s special snowflake, so why do the bad guys keep
trying to use him as bait? Set in a ‘gay Tony’ world so he was never
romantically involved with Pepper.
Hubris by romanoff: Tony would call it bad luck but, lets be honest, it was probably a long time coming.Or: Steve tries to find Tony and realises some things along the way.
Like Sunlight by sara_holmes:
Steve is used to the way it feels by now; a strange but gentle tugging
connection under his sternum, warm tingles in his skin whenever they
touch. That is, until Tony gets himself kidnapped. Then it kinda feels
more like someone is trying to wrench his heart out through his ribcage.
Tell Me All Your Secrets, Mr. Stark by Red_City:
Tony gets kidnapped and Steve is not happy. The bad guys use a truth
serum on Tony and everyone learns that Mr. Stark has been keeping some
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.
Let’s See What You Did Wrong by Resacon1990:
In which Tony is kidnapped by a rival mob
Getting Home Again (the Kidnappers Never Prosper Remix) by antigrav_vector:
He was asleep when Tony was taken, and it’s left Steve a wreck. Now he’s got to keep it together long enough to get Tony back…
Surprise, I Got Kidnapped by ihavealotofwords: This time, it actually was Tony’s fault. He knew that Steve’s enemies
were everywhere. He knew that they all had seen his face before. But he
had still slipped away from his guard, leaving them in the dust while
he ran free. He had just wanted to pick up Steve’s anniversary present
without Steve knowing for once. He wanted to surprise him, just once. Surprise, I got kidnapped. Happy anniversary, baby!
We All Fall Down (And Then Get Back Up) by Kiwifruitjuice: In the from of an anonymous video, the Avengers and its
tower residents learn that Tony was raped during his kidnapping how
many years ago. Or, the time Tony learned that Jarvis is a
little shit, Steve is cute, and hiding in his lab isn’t particularly
the best idea he’s ever had.
Wanted by shnazzy214 (WiP):
“We have a situation. Stark was kidnapped.” Steve stuck to the bare
facts. It was all he could do to prevent his voice from shaking.
Survival by @missbeckywrites:
Usually it’s just an academic question: how far would you go to survive
in hell? Two years as a prisoner in Jotunheim, and Tony Stark knows
exactly what it takes to stay alive. Even if it costs him his humanity.
Perspective by starspangledsprocket: “Having seven shades of shit kicked out of you tended
to give a guy a sense of perspective, and Tony’s came in the form of
realising that he was desperately, madly in love with Steve – had been
for the longest time without even realising it, apparently – and,
suddenly, the thought that he might never get to see those beautiful
blue eyes ever again, or that dorky smile, just furthered his resolve to
stay alive.”Tony is kidnapped. An understanding is reached.
Falling’s Just Like Flying by knittyknicker: Some things happen as part of a grand plan and some things just happen. At this point, Steve isn’t sure which is worse.
Both are Kidnapped:
Eigengrau by @the-vorkosigan:
Tony is captured; he doesn’t know by whom, or why. He doesn’t know how
much time has passed since. What he knows is, he can now hear something
in the adjacent cell, and that ‘something’ sounds a lot like Steve
Weaknesses by HannaHazard:
Bound up tightly, Steve could do nothing but watch. Tony had no chance against the Hydra soldiers. Red Skull enjoys every bit
Resistance by @thegraytigress (WiP): After being kidnapped during a fight, Tony and Steve
find themselves in a nightmare unlike any other. They’re millions of
miles from home and trapped in an alien labor camp that can only be
described as hell. There’s no chance of being found, no hope of being
rescued, and they’re facing deplorable conditions, vicious guards, and
other prisoners who are sadistic and cruel and just desperate to prey on
them. Again and again they’re told they only have two choices in this
place: work or die.They choose something else. Survival.
Guessing Game by @itsallavengers: Tony’s woken up and he can’t remember a thing. There’s
also a knife-shaped hole in his leg, which isn’t fun. But it’s okay.
He’s got Steve….It is Steve, right? (well, kind of both of them…skrull!Steve is in the tags, so guess that’s not a spoiler)
Snowblind by @kurowrites:
On Iron Man’s insistence, Tony Stark gets involved in an Avengers
mission. Unfortunately, things go very, very wrong, and Steve and Tony
get kidnapped. Emotional turmoil ensues (mostly on Steve’s side).
Bodyguard for the Day by navaan:
Tony gets kidnapped from his Stark Industries office. Steve gets taken
with him. But AIM doesn’t know they’ve mistaken Captain America for a
simple security guy – and nobody knows Tony is Iron Man… Life is complicated.
Coded Message by morphia:
Kidnapped and put in solitary confinement, and then rescued in a
perfectly orchestrated operation, Steve and Tony are left to deal with
how the ordeal has changed the nature of their relationship.
For Freedom and the Fear of Forgetting by dapperanachronism: Steve’s eyes linger on Tony until the last possible
second, as if he’s trying to memorize features he’s desperate not to
forget. Because he will, if they don’t get out of here and fast.
Lucky Break by @blossomsinthemist:
Steve and Tony haven’t been together long–they just started dating
after putting the team back together in the form of the New Avengers.
When the Red Skull finds out about their relationship, though, he takes
it personally. Aiming to make an example of them and insulted by Steve
taking up with a man, he takes them prisoner, and proceeds to try and
break them. It doesn’t exactly go as planned. Set directly after the
beginning of the first (2004) New Avengers series and the formation of
the new team.
(includes threats of non-con)
When You Remember Me by shinkonokokoro:
Tony was supposed to leave on a business trip. Steve tries to talk to
him about something important before he leaves, but then they get
kidnapped. Steve is released, thanks to Tony, but he doesn’t remember a
thing about being kidnapped.
Tied to You by @stark-spangled-lovers:
What does it take for Steve and Tony to get over their insecurities and
denial? Being kidnapped and tied up together. Naked. Obviously.
Tony kidnapped as a kid:
Golden (The Problem Children) by KakushiMiko, tatemshope: Steve and Tony are high school best friends, when
Tony’s parents are killed and the whole world thinks Tony was killed
with them. In reality, Tony’s held prisoner and slowly brainwashed into
one of Hydra’s most skilled agents. During that same time, Steve’s
dedicated his life to making the world a better place, in memory of the
friend he lost.When Steve and Tony’s objectives collide, will the truth be enough to save them both?
Childhood is the Kingdom Where Nobody Dies by MemoryDragon:
Seven-year-old Tony Stark wakes up on a Hydra base, lost, afraid, and
alone. He has to overcome his fears before it’s too late for the
Avengers and Captain America.
The One Left Stranded by somanyfeels (WiP 63/64):
Six year old Tony Stark couldn’t do anything but watch as strangers
break into his home and try to force their way into Howard’s workshop.
When their plans failed they took Tony with them and hoped he was worth
(thanks @a-salty-alto for the suggestion)
