Two stories that play with what-if today. What if Tony didn't exist? Or what if Tony hadn't revealed Ironman's identity?

Caught in the grips of spectacular hangovers, the Avengers wish Tony wasn't around to enable them, and a power decides to grant them their wish: a world without Tony Stark. How do you change reality back to normal without your resident genius billionaire playboy philanthropist, anyway?

This story is heart-warming and angsty. It has a seriously awesome Thor, plus awesome everyone else. I found the plot device whereby the world exists without Tony to be a little high school. But do persist past this as it is an enjoyable, plotty tale.

Tony's decision not to reveal his identity as Iron Man to the world was shrewd and calculated. Too bad it's about to backfire on him like a Jericho missile.

Thanks to [personal profile] sally_maria for recing this one to me. I really liked the way Ironman being anonymous allowed Tony to be the kind of person he wanted to be.

What did you think? And do you have a favourite what-if to rec?

Is anyone watching Once Upon a Time? Should I be?

But more importantly, here are some Steve/Tony recs! I'd be astonished if any Steve/Tony reader hadn't come across these, but maybe I bookmarked different ones. If I did please share yours!

I'll get started with a couple of funny ones today.

Tony is the only one who can defend Steve's virtue. Tony hates his life.

So much fun :)

Tony had a feeling he should really be ashamed of himself for the thoughts he was having, but he also knew that he might have to compromise, choose or give up. He didn't make a habit of giving up on a dream so the latter was not an option.

He might have to use all his charm and diplomacy to broker some sort of deal.

A complete giggle. It's not a Stark Spangled Banner story, despite early hints.

So... like them? Read them already?

Okay, so once upon a time, I told a friend that The Avengers wasn't sparking any fannish desires. THEN I decided that, well, Steve Rogers and Tony Stark are both hot, so collectively, they would be VERY HOT together, and started reading porn. Pretty half-heartedly though.

THEN, astolat posted a Loki/Thor story, and I read it, and BAM! I am smack in the middle of a massive fannish obsession. I LOVE the way that happens! I can't predict what will get me.

Rosie! I remember when I came to visit you last summer, you pointed me in the direction of lots of lovely Tumblr goodness about Hiddleston and Hemsworth. Where can I finds it again?! And anything else you deem important now that I have (finally) been assimilated?!

Lots of !!! because I am in the grip of The Joy ;)

(BTW, I'm reccing this Steve/Tony fic because it is hilarious. I love it. No pron tho ;)
