DON’T FAKE IT, LEAVE REAL COMMENTS AND KUDOS FOR YOUR AUTHORS!
Fake It by @laireshi: “Is it true you and Captain America are dating?” the journalist asked.Tony
gave her his most charming smile. “Captain America likes to keep his
life private,” he said. “But he knew who I was when he kissed me.”
Another fake, wide smile. “We’re very happy.”
The Opposite of a Problem by @sineala: “I promise to love, honor, and probably not obey you,
and, uh, take you as my totally-unlawfully-wedded husband, in sickness
and in health, forsaking all others, until death do us part, or for at
least the next seventy-two hours.”(Or: Tony and Steve get fake-married for the sake of the mission.)
All Along by @thegraytigress: Somewhere, somehow, with all the stuff they’ve been through… All the
times they had to fake being more than they were. Somehow Tony falls in
love with Steve for real.Or five times Tony and Steve fake being in a relationship and the one time they realize they’re already in one.
Fondue for Two by Heartithateyou:
So maybe Tony fakes a relationship with him to get away from a woman flirting with him, that doesn’t mean he likes him.
Give Us Cake to Celebrate by @tari-aldarion: minniemouse199: “Hello. Please please please. Would you
be able to do a really fluffy happy fic. Maybe something like a prank
war. I need to get my mind off civil war. It’s killing meeeee. I will
love you forever.“Well….it’s fluffy…
Check One by JenTheSweetie:
The important thing to know – and I mean really, the actually
important thing – is that no matter what Bucky said, Steve was not
flirting with Tony Stark.
(“Yes you were, you son of a – ”)
Steve has an annoying best friend. Tony has an elaborate plan. Sam has allergies. Bucky has no idea what’s about to hit him.
Lost Together by @festiveferret:
Being trapped in a horrible world where some things are like home, and
some things are terrifyingly not, is bad enough. But when it becomes
clear that the people here come in pairs – and unpaired people are a
threat – Steve and Tony are forced to pretend that they’re a pair too,
if they ever want to make it home alive.
Undercover Mission: High School by @kurowrites:
Steve and Tony are forced to go undercover as high school teachers to
catch a villain called ‘The Ruler’. Tony seems to be surprisingly okay
with that. Steve… not so much.
(Thanks For) Being Late by Pearl_Unplanned:
Tony was stood up by his date. Good thing Steve happened to be walking
by at the time. Things go better than expected, playing fake date.
Time Can But Make It Easier by thistlethorns:
Tony and Steve were once best friends. Eight years out of college, they
meet again at work and end up having to fake a relationship to get out
of a messy situation.
An Incredibly Platonic Evening (Plus One Remix) by @kdm103020:
After years of pining for Steve, Tony invites him to a charity gala strictly as friends. It’s not date. Sure, he might want something more, but it’s totally manageable so long as Steve stays in the dark. Right?
The Fine Print by Shy_Owl:
Steve signed the Accords after rescuing Bucky. He also signed something
else. Always read the fine print, Steve, or you may find yourself
married to Tony Stark.
Triple Date by upquark:
Tony has a cunning plan to get a date with Steve. Darcy’s in it for the food.
What Could Be by Seven_Oomen: Tony’s parents are inviting him for a family dinner as
an offer of reconciliation after a gruesome fight five years prior. And
although Tony would love to see his mother and brothers again, he’s not
too keen on reuniting with his homophobic father. So what’s the best way
to piss Howard off?Why bring his boyfriend of course! That should serve as an extra fuck you to Howard.Or
how Tony got his hot neighbor to play his boyfriend for an evening. It
gets better when his father seems to know his pretend boyfriend. And
there’s definitely no feelings involved. None whatsoever.
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.
hold my hand (i’ll walk with you my dear) by Hell_13th, soniclipstick: Tony Stark is twenty, a genius, and a train wreck. When
another one of his crazy rendezvous end up dropping Stark Industries
stock points, his CEO Pepper decides something needs to be done, and
hires an escort to play fake boyfriend to add some stability to his name
and reputation. Steve Rogers came home from Afghanistan a year
ago, and is just looking for a quiet part-time job while waiting for
college acceptance letters. When his friend Natasha asks him to take on a
job for her security company, he figures, how hard could it be?
It Was the Fourth of July by seratonation:
Based on The Proposal. Steve has been Tony’s assistant for 3 years when
he finds out that Tony is actually not American and is going to be
deported. Tony talks Steve into getting married but Steve insists on
seeing his family first. Tony invites himself along to make sure his
plan doesn’t go awry, but unfortunately Steve’s family is actually
it’s a long shot, but– by theappleppielifestyle:“He’s in the dangerous second phase of lovesickness,”
Bruce says, straight-faced as Tony twitches behind him. “The third is
refusal to eat, which can lead to death by starvation if the condition
isn’t rectified immediately.”General Ki growls, the sound coming
like static between his oddly-shaped jaw and even odder teeth. “Skri-
Stark is an invaluable asset to the empire! This illness must be
eradicated immediately, Dr. Banner. What is the cure?”“A mate,”
Bruce says, re-adjusting his glasses. “Skri-Stark must be paired with a
mate, and soon. If not, he will succumb within several weeks.”(Or, the world has fallen to aliens and Steve and Tony come up with a plan to take it back.)
Tony Pretends to Date Steve (Until He Doesn’t Have To) by HappyStony:“You alright?”Of course he was not alright! Tony had a blue eyed, blond haired, six
foot too high, two hundred who knows what pound, too sexy for his own
good ninety something, mentally twenty, year old man on top of him. Who
even asks that question in a situation like that?Or:
Basically the title. Tony pretends he’s dating Steve until…well, you know.
the reason you ruminate the shadowy past by Mizzy: So, Captain America effectively manages to cockblock Tony for a year.It’s
not Steve’s fault. Well, actually, it is. But he was just proving a
point – that if a superhero is gay, how can it be wrong? Steve just
picked the wrong superhero to make the point with. Now America will
think they’re dating – and Tony’s not going to be the guy to break Captain America’s heart.There’s
only one way out. To save face, Steve and Tony have to become fake
boyfriends. Steve thinks the “boyfriends” bit will be the hardest to
act… but maybe it’s the “fake” part that will be the hardest act of
It’s All About Your Perceptions by AetherSprite:
Steve is arrested for a crime he couldn’t possibly commit. Tony takes matters into his own hands to prove it.
Strategic Thinking: Armor Wars Edition by Annie D:
Steve’s more than happy to step up when Tony’s in trouble.
The Trial Run by Annie D:
Tony and Steve pretend to date, and enjoy it far more than they should.
All is Fair (in love and war) by MarvelousMenagerie: Crimson Dynamo is the latest threat to Avengers
Academy, and is only willing to surrender under one condition: Tony
Stark’s hand in marriage. Steve Rogers doesn’t like that plan and, quick
on his feet, thinks of another.“He’s already married!” Steve shouts.Crimson Dynamo recoils. “What?”“What?!” Tony repeats.
Do It For the Cupcakes by @rouge-winter:
“You want us to be fake dating…” Steve said once he got over his initial
shock to Tony’s request. “So you can get free cupcakes?”
Fifty Shades of Fakery by @emeraldine087: Steve Rogers is a new hire in a mammoth tech company and the focus of
a top executive’s unwelcome sexual advances. He’s just about at the end
of his rope in pushing the sleazebag away, when he gets an unlikely and
unexpected rescue from the reclusive–and sexy–Chief Technical Officer of the company, and finds himself with an insta-boyfriend before the day is out.Posing as Tony Stark’s fake boyfriend is not going to be a hardship. At all.
It’s Not What It Looks Like by @ayapandagirl:
Someone dressed like Captain America saved Tony from being kidnapped. Steve gets caught with his pants down.
Maybe With Enough Duct Tape by Bill Longbow: This was a stupid plan, so very, very stupid, but given
the choice he would rather face one disappointed Steve than a horde of
disappointed Carbonells.Even though Tony forgot to mention he broke up with his boyfriend and
Rhodey refuses to dye his hair it might all work out in the end.
Pick a Box by coaster:Steve had not expected for himself to literally walk into Tony Stark on the streets of New York.~Steve Rogers was Captain America. Tony Stark was probably Iron Man. No one knew any of this.
There’s Absolutely Nothing Romantic About this Getaway by @the-vorkosigan:
Still at odds with each other, Steve and Tony go on a secret mission. The pretend relationship is not a part of it, really; it starts off as a stupid joke, but it becomes progressively more difficult to wriggle out of it.
how long have you two been together by paxatonic:
prompt I saw somewhere: one guy asks two girls on a double date and they
agree but then they show up to the date and the guys realize that
they’re together and then one of the girls ask how long they’ve been
together and they just go along with it
