Flowers for Anthony [Atalan]
Crowley didn't look up immediately when he heard the shop door open; he was just in the middle of finishing off a complicated bouquet, and the blasted ribbon was being difficult about things.

"Just a sec," he said, scowling as the end slipped away from him again.

There was a pause. And then a voice, softly, "There you are."

AU. An unusual customer walks into Anthony Crowley's flower shop with a very specific request.

"What is this?" he says, voice low and dangerous, though even as he asks, a picture is forming in his head.

Every odd reaction, all the unusual behavior Tony had unthinkingly chalked up to the kid being upset suddenly takes on a whole new meaning; each little moment adds together to become a neon blinking sign, screaming warning, danger, and pointing to one simple, insane, and terrifying conclusion:

This...is not Peter.

Empathic Responses [waterbird13]
In a world that still considers alphas the protectors, betas the every-day masses to fill out the ranks, and omegas as homemakers and glorified objects, Tony Stark is born.
Tony is born an omega in a world where that means he’s a homemaker, a provider, with limited opportunities and a lack of autonomy.
Tony says fuck that, no matter what the rest of the world is telling him.
As the Rogue’s return, Tony is left dealing with the world coming down around his ears. The Accords, Aliens, and, of course, the alpha who somehow just moved into his life.

“They really didn’t want the mask to come off.” Hill thumbed through the scans, and pulled out a film that she then handed over to Sam, face mostly expressionless but for the flat line of her pursed lips.

Sam accepted the film and held it up to the light, angling so both he and Steve could see it, squinting at the outline of the Winter Soldier’s skull, and the blips of unnatural white that showed up, God, in his brain, not to mention about half his teeth, plus the mask, with its thin protrusions—

“Those are pins,” Steve realized. He looked over at Hill. “The mask—it’s nailed to his face.”

The chair lowered and Steve was screaming through the gag, still thrashing against the restraints even harder. Something lowered over his head and pressed against his face.

He met Bucky’s eyes; desperate, terrified as he tried to tell Bucky everything, tried to convince Bucky to stop this through eye contact alone.

Stay With Me (home is where your mind is.) [sara_holmes]
Where Steve doesn’t quite die, ends up stranded in the multiverse and would quite like to know how the hell so many versions of himself ended up sleeping with Tony Stark. Well, that’s going to make things a tad awkward when he gets home.

Making The Best Of It [dentalfloss]
“He’s not telling us everything,” Fury reached out and shut the projection off, “I’m not comfortable with this.” Coulson didn’t respond, didn’t need to. “Let Rogers know I want Barton watched; he doesn’t go anywhere alone until we understand exactly what’s going on. I’m not losing him to some egotistical mind-f***ing blade-dancer who has mentor issues and wants to take it out on our asset.”

Phil nodded efficiently. He couldn’t agree more.

Not Exactly a Superpower [fabrega]
Sam Wilson does not have any superpowers, but he is not going to let that stop him.

(or: the one where Sam tries to talk to birds anyway.)

The Unspoken Truth [Nonymos]
[This has some screwy formatting and missing commas -- read the version you saved on your computer!]

Loki likes it when people kneel before him, and isn't that the sign of a heavy dominant complex.

Clint enjoys having nothing but his next target in mind, and isn't that the sign of a heavy submissive complex.

Loki and Clint slept together during a sex-pollen-induced frenzy. They both agree that it was an unpleasant, shitty road-bump, they still hate each other a lot and the situation is not going downhill at all, fuck you very much.

Or : what do you do when your greatest enemy becomes the one man you can't live without ?

Some Assembly Required [valtyr]
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.

Entangled States [Tenebrielle]
An accident causes Bruce Banner and Tony Stark to switch bodies, leaving them to struggle with the other's "terrible privilege" until they can find a way to reverse the change. But the stakes might be higher than either Bruce or Tony realizes… Science Bros friendship, with a liberal dose of Clint.

By Certain Definitions of Normal [rainfall]
Just a few Avengers, doing what they do best. And the Hulk, who needs rather gentler handling.

Why is Tony so good at this, when he's so lousy with everything else remotely people-skills related?

Written for a prompt where, post-Hulk hug, Bruce wakes up to find Tony Stark in his arms. Until that point, it was pretty gen. ♥

What Rough Beast [immoral_crow]
Steve Rogers, super soldier. It’s amazing really that it takes them all so long to work out just what the serum can do… but given enough time all things become apparent. This is a story about love, and loss; the things we would do to be true to ourselves and true to our hearts; and the prices you must pay to do that.
