Coulson's Eleven - Chapter 1 - copperbadge - The Avengers (Marvel Movies), Marvel, Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
After Vanko destroyed the Stark Expo, SHIELD instituted a Superhuman Detention program, designed to capture and hold dangerous people -- dangerous people like Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and others who made themselves noticeable. The superhumans SHIELD has imprisoned -- and some SHIELD agents themselves -- have other ideas about what constitutes 'dangerous'...

|| The actual fic is much more tightly plotted, terrifically characterized, and interesting than the dime-novel paperback blurb summary maybe implies--I, at least, put it off for a while. I love the character interactions, particularly Peter, and the way Natasha and Clint come to the team differently. Could barely look away. Oooooh, machinations, ooooh.

scenes from our mansion, after the war - moirariordan - Iron Man (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"Apologies, madam," says JARVIS, "but both you and Mr. Stark made me promise to prevent you from being one of 'those couples.'"

|| GOD, yes. I still want another one where Pepper keeps her powers--I will ALWAYS want that--but I think I prefer this Pepper, if I had to make a choice. She's cool-headed and assertive, yes, but a workaholic, and can be made uncomfortable, and vulnerable, and still very scared. Excellent, and highly, highly, highly recommended.

Robot Trip - copperbadge - The Avengers (2012), Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]

Tony is driving from Malibu to Manhattan with a robot in the back seat and Captain America riding escort at Pepper's behest. What could possibly go wrong?

|| Yesssssssssssss--this is a Captain America considerably more cornfed and easy-going than the one that appeared in the Avengers, but I also like him better, so I'm not complaining. Long, satisfying, fun, plus robots.

White Heat Red Hot - 51stCenturyFox - Iron Man (Movies), Iron Man 3 - Fandom, Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]

Just a brief missing scene between Pepper and Tony prior to the end of Iron Man 3.

|| How many fics do I want where Pepper stays a superhero? All of them.

babel, babel, look at me now - jumpfall - Iron Man (Movies), The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Iron Man 3 Spoilers.

Fixing Extremis doesn't mean removing it. Tony Stark may in fact be dating a superhero. (There's a line in the budget for it.)

|| The story Pepper Potts deserves. (And, probably, the one she'll never get. Goddammit, comics movies. Catch up, already.)

The Right Thing in the Wrong Way - igrockspock - Iron Man (Movies), The Avengers (2012), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
People don't ask why Pepper sticks by Tony as often as they should, and if they did, she probably wouldn't tell them the truth: that he's never left her alone on the one day she actually needs him.

|| Oh. There's something uneven about the first parts of this, but it really hits its stride somehow in the later parts, and I love it. Some of the dialogue feels forced, but I love the fundamentals of this read on Tony and Pepper, and hot damn am I happy about all the Tony/Pepper IM3 is giving us. No spoilers for that movie.

the kindly ones - irnan - Iron Man (Movies), Marvel Avengers Movies Universe [Archive of Our Own]
And so you see, the real difference is – well, the difference is a vagina and a vulva and a uterus and breasts and all the biological stuff you get that makes the nurse come out and say Congratulations Mr Stark, you have a beautiful little daughter instead of Congratulations Mr Stark, you have a bouncing baby boy, but the real difference is that Howard Stark is an inventor, and a hardass, and a loner, and damaged in all his own perfectly unique ways, and has kind of a twisted sense of humour, so that when his (according to the papers) delicately lovely precious little girl turns out to be not so delicate, not to mention capable of out-engineering the entire country, he is so goddamn proud he just about bursts with it.

|| Yeppppppppp. Oh, Tony, you are so wonderfully fucked up. The Morrigan. Hot damn.

red, red, gold - pprfaith - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Her armor is the exact same shade of red as the lipstick she’s worn since she was sixteen.

You don’t actually believe that’s coincidence, do you?

I really haven't saved this already? Exquisite character study--very interested in symbolism and parallels, aggression and need--and how they would play out for Tasha Stark. I love, love, love always-a-girl fic where the differences in power dynamics and behavior expectation become part of the character's relationships--so this, I love endlessly.
