Required Reading: Marvel

My favorite fics in the Marvel fandom that I consider Required Reading. Of course, there is also the MUST READ tag for more awesome fics. Warning now: pretty much all these fics will be Steve/Tony because that is pretty much the only thing I read in the Marvel ‘verse — just kidding, I apparently read XMFC fics now too, lol.

[Steve/Tony] Muccamukk – Heart of Steel [WIP]
AU; Steve wakes up in the mid-twenty first century, the Golden Age of America, and doesn’t like what he finds. Fortunately, Tony has some ideas. Marriage of convenience — need I say more?

[Steve/Tony] marinarusalka – In a Different Light
After an unexpected attack, Tony has trouble dealing with his injuries and Steve has trouble dealing with Tony.

[Steve/Tony] valtyr – The Knight and the Tower
Fairy tale AU; the brave knight Sir Steven attempts to rescue a damsel in distress. Nothing goes according to plan.

[Steve/Tony] valtyr – Some Assembly Required
Tony Stark is trying to set up a new superhero team when he’s given a sex change, courtesy of Victor von Doom. He copes with that about as well as you’d expect.

[Steve/Tony] tsukinofaerii – W.I.P.E.
The one where Tony wipes his brain and has to deal with the aftermath. A little confusing at first (probably because I’m not familiar with canon), but so good.

[Steve/Tony] derryderrydown – Hypotenuse
The one where Steve dumps Tony for Iron Man — can’t have a list full of superhero fics without the identity porn, right?

[Steve/Tony] valtyr – Horn and Ivory
Inception fusion — Steve’s not sure what’s real anymore.

[Steve/Tony] kijikun – Some Assembly Required ‘verse
Post-Civil War fic in which Tony acquires a protege, sort-of. (Or, the one with little Maria Stark.)

[Steve/Tony] valtyr – Secrets of a Successful Marriage
Tony Stark lives a double life; he’s secretly the supervillain known as Iron Man. But his loving husband Steve has a few secrets of his own, as Tony is about to discover.


Earth-1610 — Ultimate Universe

[Steve/Tony] valtyr – The Emperor’s Fury
Steve is an ex-gladiator. Tony wears a toga. Together, they litigate civil cases. Also a surprising amount of boating.


Earth-7207 — Noir Universe

[Steve/Tony] Penumbren – Indelible
Alternative/parallel universe fic in which 616!Tony switches places with Noir!Tony. (Sequel: A Long Hard Road)

[Steve/Tony] marianarusalka – Look Here, Look Back, Look Ahead
The one where Iron Man and Captain America team up to investigate Nazi activity at a mysterious castle.

[Steve/Tony] manic_intent – The Tower of Yesterday
Tony is the WWII hero waking up in the future.


Earth-20051 — Marvel Adventures Universe

[Steve/Tony] marianarusalka – First Impressions
Meet the Parents. Howard is alive after all, and Steve needs to meet him. Even if Tony doesn’t want him to.

[Steve/Tony] valtyr – Idle Rainbow
Tony knows that worthwhile things take hard work and sacrifice. Steve’s not so sure. (Or, the one where Tony is adorably insecure and Steve just want to have sex, damnit! XP)

[Steve/Tony] valtyr – On The Record
Tony vs the tabloids is an ongoing battle. These headlines might be the winning shot. (Or, the one where Steve and Tony were dating, but Tony didn’t know it!)

[Steve/Tony] dorcas_gustine – Somewhere Over the Wormhole
Being a superhero is hard: you miss a lot of appointments. Alternatively: dimensional travel brings gender issues which aren’t really issues in the end. (MA/3490 crossover.)

[Steve/Tony] tsukinofaerii – Engaging the Enemy
In which Iron Man is a villain and keeps taking Captain America hostage.


Marvel Movieverse

[Steve/Tony] derryderrydown – Five Times Steve Rogers Danced
Five times Steve Rogers danced. So totally charming, just like movieverse!Steve. ♥

[Steve/Tony] derryderrydown – A Family Tradition
Steve was looking earnest. Which was kind of his default expression but he was looking especially earnest right now. “I’ve been reading about safe sex,” he said, “and all the pamphlets say we need to discuss our previous sexual partners before we do this.” (Or, the one in which Steve has the best timing ever!)

[Steve/Bucky] sinuous_curve – In Love and War, Don’t Seek Counsel
The one where Bucky tries to reconcile the differences between his Steve and the new Steve.

[Steve/Tony/Pepper] boombangbing – Magnetic
Tony and Pepper are in a committed relationship, everyone knows that. Tony still flirts relentlessly with Steve, though, and Steve doesn’t know what to make of it. Then he starts having weird feelings about Pepper too, and he really, really doesn’t know what to make of that.

[Loki/Thor] astolat – Chaos War
The one where Odin makes Loki king and he is totally BAMF at it.

[Steve/Tony] valtyr – Tomorrow Belongs To Me
The one where the Avengers come together in movieverse and it’s awesome. Also, bottom!Steve! ♥


X-Men Movieverse

[Erik/Charles] Xris – A Family Portrait In Progress
In which Charles adopts Lorna, Charles and Erik eventual reunite, and a family (slowly) comes together.

[Erik/Charles] zarathuse – I Guess I Should Say Thanks or Some Shit
The one where Charles and Erik douche it up in Amsterdam. ♥

[Erik/Charles, Logan/Marie] Yahtzee – The Winter of Banked Fire *NEW*
The one that continues from X-3 and gives us a satisfying end.
