My heart is a room of unfortunate things
Bruce isn't sure what to think of Tony Stark yet. Despite how much they seem to have in common, he isn't sure how much the billionaire could really understand about his life. It isn't until he accidentally loses it, in a room full of bombs, that he realizes he's not the only one sporting a bad history with Stark Weapons.

On Trebuchets and Broken Families
When Bruce was five, after a particularly brutal attack by his father, his mother brought him to one of the Maria Stark Foundation's shelters for victims of domestic violence. At the day-care centre there, he met a boy who dared to talk about the scientific method as it applies to fairy tales, who could go toe-to-toe with him on building anything from trebuchets to radios, and--most importantly--who never, ever saw him as a freak or a monster. Unfortunately, his mother went back to his father and Bruce never saw his friend again. Still, he cherished those few days at the shelter as the best of his childhood and never forgot the boy he met there, whom he considered to be his first friend. Several decades later, after the events of The Avengers, Bruce comes across an old photograph tucked inside a dusty engineering handbook in Stark Tower--a photograph of a boy who is unmistakeably the boy from the shelter.

I would love to see something where either one or both of the master assassins acknowledge Tony's rather unflinching willingness to pull the trigger on the bad guys when the situation calls for it. Not necessarily to Tony's face (though that's up to Anon), but either to themselves or between themselves. Because while Tony's public-business personal sometimes comes off as peacenikky and Tony likes to put brains before brawn when called for, he is more than willing to be judge-jury-executioner, even when it's up close. +10 if Tony's without guilt over people he's killed after making the judgement call +100 if Tony hesitating makes somebody in the Avengers reconsider a kill order/strike

Blue As True As Blue Can Be
Tony Stark has worked hard to make sure everyone sees exactly what he wants them to. After all, they'd all rather see the asshole with the too-bright smile than the terrified person underneath who is desperately trying to conceal that which has caused him so much pain. Trust him, he knows. (Tony Stark is a mutant, and his father had made sure to note /exactly/ how he felt about that. Now, with the Avengers living with him full-time, it's getting more and more difficult to hide the part of him that almost no one still alive knows about.)

Soul mates verse where the first name of your soul mate appears on your left ring finger after they are born. Once the name appears a tube-like ring is worn over the finger so other people can't see that name allowing for true love to form and not be based on names. According to the MCU wiki Bruce was born December 18, 1969 while Tony was born on May 29, 1970. That makes Bruce just a bit older than Tony. When Bruce's father finds the name of another boy on his son's finger he cuts the name off. Bruce remembers always having a scar on his finger. MCU wiki also says that Bruce's full name is Robert Bruce Banner. Tony doesn't know that Bruce's first name is Robert. So neither of them know that the other is their soul mate until after they are in a relationship. Tony does know that Bruce has a scar where his name should be, but Bruce doesn't want to know who's name Tony has. I would like it if they find out by either 1. Bruce signs a marriage certificate with his full name. or 2. Tony breaks his ring finger some how and Bruce sees it while putting a splint on it. (I would prefer the second one.) If the author can come up with anything better (read: fluffier) than be my guest.

Inspire, Expire
In some alternate universe, Bruce starts having weird-ass dreams he actually sort of remembers when he wakes up. Like, they're weird, obviously, but not in the normal dream way -- so then I opened the door to my house and I found the factory where they make grandmothers, and there was a big unicorn supervising production, and then I left the factory and it let out into a river where all the grandmothers were disguised as nesting dolls, and -- because in these dreams everything follows, point to point to point. It's just the actual subject matter that's weird as shit. Also the fact that they kind of feel like memories, not dreams, but that's completely absurd. And then he finds out Tony is having the same experience? Something like that? I don't know, this idea just lodged itself in my head and I think it'd be fascinating.
