What else is new?

While holding things together, Pepper finds herself getting much, much closer to Natalie. But Natalie may be hiding a few secrets of her own.

But now his suit comes from a lab far more advanced than the basement of a Brooklyn antique shop, and the only decision he really gets to make is if his pants are too tight.

The Iron Beast | kijikun, PG-13, 7k - (616)

Everybody Got Naked and We Got Cap Back Day by Letterblade | letterblade, PG-13, 5k  - (616)

A gratuitous Civil-War-fix-it-AU. Self-indulgent fluff. Ignore all canon and retcons after the point in the introduction; this violently clashes with certain bits of canon, and doesn't particularly care. Thanks to Mattador for the beta.

Steve comes back to life but things aren't quite the way he left them.

A Family Tradition | derryderrydown, PG-13, 4k - (MCU)

I don't know, I think it'd be funny if Steve finds out about safe sex and really takes the whole "think about your past partners" and "the secret to any safe relationship is communication" thing to heart.

(It’s canon that Steve like to ‘keep it in the family.’ lol poor Tony.)

Bonus points if Tony isn't crushing on Steve at first because he honestly never even thought of it, but when he finds out he realizes that he approves. Enthusiastically."
