do you have fic with the howling commandoes in it? either they’re still alive and old, or they helped raise tony, or the timeline is different? thanks for all the work you do!
That’s an interesting ask! Honestly, there are some where they are sort of mentioned, but not that many I know of where they play a real part. However, here are some suggestions:
BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN ARMS LEAVE COMMENTS AND KUDOS!
we will meet in another life by theappleppielifestyle:
Tony is there instead of Howard during Project Rebirth. He ends up
following Steve into the Howling Commandos, into the Atlantic ocean and
into the 21st century.
A Shadow Hanging Over Our Fate by CaptainDean13:
The Avengers get sent back in time to WWII where they run into the
Howling Commandos… complete with Bucky and Steve. Little hard to
explain that away, especially when you are trying to keep some major
secrets. Secrets like how you ended up in the future and why the hell
Bucky is now a scary (reformed) assassin with a metal arm, not to
mention that you married your friend’s son.
Though Your Face is Lovely by @chibisquirt:
Tony Stark is an experienced adventurer by the time he’s working beside
Captain America and the Howling Commandos… which is why he should have
known better than to pick up the artifact. Transported into another
universe, he’s going to have to find a way home, even if it means
dealing with these “Avengers” people, some of whom seem awfully familiar…
Don’t Look Back, You Can Never Look Back by iLoVeSuperman: Tony Stark: billionaire, playboy, philanthropist, and, now, superhero.It’d only been a few months prior that he’d revealed to the world he was Iron Man and life couldn’t be better.That
is…until he stumbled upon an old abandoned Hydra lab and kinda set off
one of their machines by accident. A blast of blue light later and he
found himself in the same lab…only it is seventy years earlier and it is
full of Hydra agents. Cue the entrance of the Howling Commandos led by Tony’s childhood hero, Captain America.Suddenly,
Tony is living out a dream. He’s joining up with the Commandos in the
search to get Tony back to his right era. It’s the adventure of a
lifetime and, at first, it’s amazing…but then he and Steve connect in
ways more than just friendship and he finds that he is torn between
wanting to stay with him or go back home. In the end, whatever the result, he loses.
Calls Me Home by steve-capsicle-rogers: Tony can’t help but notice the far away look on Steve’s
face. The visible pain and loss. It wasn’t right and giving Steve
back everything he’d lost was the right choice. The right thing. And
honestly Tony didn’t do the right thing near enough.prompt fic: time travel, WWII, Steve/Tony
Scientific Heresy by antigrav_vector: In the process of running the particle accelerator in
his basement and fixing the arc reactor, Tony finds himself flung into
the past where he has to take on a fight not his own if he wants to get
home to stop Vanko. At least he had a chance to replace the old rector
that had been killing him with the new one before everything went
sideways… But now he has no choice but to face off with family,
friends, and old heroes, and none of that sounds remotely appealing.
Well, okay, getting to meet them all during their glory days kinda does.But as it turns out, they’re not exactly what he imagined, and his path home is a lot longer than he’d hoped it would be.And a lot more complicated.
An Inglorious Affair by @stark-spangled-lovers, morphia:
In 1944, Steve’s commando team, The Basterds, are off to fight nazis in
France. Tony joins their efforts after intelligence suggests that Herr
Kleiser, a German scientist, has set his sights on making a massive
nuclear bomb. Their mission: Get to Kleiser before he completes his evil
plan. What neither of them had planned for, however, was to fall in
love in the middle of the worst war either of them had ever seen.
Deep in the Heart of Me by @finely-honed: There were days when the realization that he was
someone’s father made Steve’s head hurt, but mostly he was grateful that
he could trust his instincts, because apparently Peter was what had
been missing from his life. Yes, he still had lingering, unresolved
issues from his time in the Army, and sure, he had what Bucky annoyingly
referred to as a criminally untapped ass, and no life outside of work
and Peter, but Steve was okay with how his life had turned out because
of trusting his instincts.Unfortunately, those same instincts had straight up betrayed him by going absolutely haywire upon being exposed to Tony Stark.
Veteran single dad Steve runs a tattoo shop. For his 40th
birthday, Pepper arranges for Tony to get that tattoo he always wanted,
and he winds up with the mother of all crushes instead. Jumping out of
airplanes is one thing, but falling in love is something else entirely.
Steve struggles with the idea of actually letting someone into his life.
Tony is left trying to keep his heart from being broken while Steve
figures things out.
(HCs are Steve and Bucky’s adoptive dads)
Her Mysterious Man by superhusbandfeels:
Tony had just created Time Traveling.(Take that, Reed!) But he is not to
interact with ANYONE in fear of tearing apart the space time continuum.
But nevertheless, he is still able to travel anywhere through time. So,
why does he end up in 1942? And who is that gorgeous woman in those red
dancing heels sitting all alone? And why does she seem so familiar to
(this actually has a lot of Peggy & Tony, but the HCs are featured as well)
Silence is the Sound of Rest(lessness) by @captainshellhead, vibraniumstark:
The Howling Commandos find Tony alive in Reed’s lab. Steve visits him at
the hospital, and waits for him to wake. Fix-it for Ultimates #27-28.
Memorial by hanyou_elf: Here rests in honored glory an American Soldier known but to God.Steve visits Arlington’s Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in lieu of visting the tombs of those he’s lost. (the HCs aren’t actually there, obviously, but it is a nice vignette about Steve’s grief)
