Tony’s PTSD from Afghanistan
Do you know any Stony fics that deal with Tony being tortured in Afghanistan, e.g. PTSD or Steve finding out how bad it was or anything else like that. Thanks
You should check out the Tony’s Water Issues recs and the Nightmares/Panic Attack recs, but here are some other suggestions for you:
NOT GETTING COMMENTS OR KUDOS IS LIKE TORTURE FOR YOUR AUTHORS!
Silence by pawsdash:While in wait, staying at Clint’s safehouse, Steve has to bunk with Tony and a broken arc reactor.OrSteve has a lot of questions and Tony isn’t sure he wants to answer them.
Red, White and Gold by @neverthelessthesun:
Tony doesn’t believe in soulmates, no matter how much he wants to.
Upon Waking by @winterstar95:
A story of recovery. In a world without superheroes, Tony Stark, the
disinherited son of a billionaire, goes to Afghanistan as an embedded
media star, only to be held hostage for months until he’s rescued.
During his recovery, his therapist Doctor Bruce Banner prescribes an
unusual treatment; volunteer work at a rehab center. He meets an
eclectic assembled group including a vet who thinks he’s Thor, a
physical therapist who might be a spy, and an all American hero, Steve
Rogers. It is Steve Rogers, the soldier in a coma, who captures his
interest and, eventually, his heart.
The Fourth by booyahfordham: Tony had never been a big fan of the Fourth of July – not that he
wasn’t patriotic; he loved the star-spangled blah blah or whatever. He
loved America and all, he just didn’t like all the gigantic and colorful
explosions in the sky, and if that meant he didn’t go to Fourth of July
parties or that he ducked out early to avoid said explosions, it didn’t
bother him too much.TW: PTSD maybe??? Better safe than sorry.
The Ghosts of You by StarkTony1:
Tony remembers Afghanistan.
Imperfect by cher:
But, the thing is, and he can admit this to himself sometimes, he’s
afraid of trying to sleep. It was fucking terrible right after
Afghanistan, and then just mildly awful, but since his one-way-but-not
trip to another galaxy while humping a nuke, it’s been bad.
if I should stumble by AvengersTime:
“The gunshot wound had been too infected, in between the lack of
care and the blood loss there was no choice but to amputate the leg from
above the knee and down.“
Tony’s captivity had changed everything about him, he gained and lost
valuable things, and led him to be Iron Man. He’s perfectly okay with
his secrets to remain secrets, but he didn’t expect his team to actually
care. Also, unconsciously falling in love with Captain America was definitely not part of the plan.
Let Me Take Care of You by Espresso-Patronum:
See, they had a thing they did. It wasn’t really a routine, and it was
never scheduled, but every now and then, Tony would come home and Steve
would have things ready for him.
Safe by Pearl_Unplanned:
Not everyone was born with wings. In fact, most people weren’t. Tony did. Then Afghanistan happened. But that was years ago.
Before and After by @captainneverever:
Tony can see the line in his life between before the cave in Afghanistan
and after, then he has an encounter that changes him again.
