Know of any fics where Yinsen lives, whether he plays a decent role or not? Or in that strain of thought, one where Maria lives (and by God either leaves Howard and takes Tony with her, or survives the accident)?
There are Maria Stark recs here, but here are some fics featuring some Yinsen, so enjoy!
GOOD, HELPFUL FRIENDS LEAVE COMMENTS AND KUDOS!
One of Us Cannot Be Wrong by @shetlandowl:
Steve Rogers is a hard-working book editor without equal, who has
cultivated a career and lifestyle precisely as he likes it. When the US
Immigration office threatens to take all of it away from him just
because he happens to have been born on the wrong side of an imaginary line, his only hope is to find an American spouse within two weeks.
In Hindsight by nanasekai: Tony Stark knows very well how he screwed things up with Steve Rogers. He remembers it. Perfectly….Doesn’t he?
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. (this one is probably closest to your ask and very good)
Like a Comet Streaming On by @sineala:
Tony escapes Afghanistan with a functioning Iron Man suit and a
perfectly normal heart. He even manages to bring Ho Yinsen home safely
at his side. But he may as well have lost everything… because his
wolfbrother is dead. Six months later, the Avengers find Captain
America, frozen in ice, miraculously alive. Everything and everyone
Steve has ever known is gone – except his wolfsister, the recipient of
the lupine version of the super-soldier serum, who was frozen in his
arms. Tony has everything but his wolf. Steve has only his wolf. This is
how their lives fit together.
Something Good to Die For (To Make it Beautiful to Live) by blackkat:
Six people Tony thought Yinsen would have liked, and one person Yinsen really did. For a kink meme prompt.
(not a Yinsen Lives fic, but very focused on Yinsen & Tony)
(Dreaming) Someone Else’s Dream by @missbeckywrites:
The Avengers were never real, only the product of a fevered delirium in a
cave in Afghanistan. But some dreams are worth fighting for. Worth
living for. (also not a Yinsen Lives fic, but does feature a lot of Yinsen)
