Pairings/Characters: Tony/always-a-girl!Bruce (Blythe)

Pairings/Characters: Bruce/Tony, Phil Coulson/Pepper Potts
Spoilers: Through Captain America: The Winter Soldier, a sequel to Bear Me Safe Through Dark
Warnings: None
Word Count: ~53,000
Summary: Bruce and Tony know there’s a mole in SHIELD, and they have no idea who they can trust, but they’re as committed as ever to saving the world. Jennifer learns that balancing being a superhero and being a lawyer doesn’t come without consequences, and Pepper just wants to keep Stark Industries on the right track.
A/N: Written for the 2016 Marvel Big Bang. Title from the Kongos’ “Come With Me Now.” Originally, this fic was supposed to cover Avengers: Age of Ultron, and then I realized there was no way I could do it justice. For that reason, there’s a bit of sequelitis going on with this fic. Just know that another long, plotty story is on its way.

Wonderful art by digitalwave here. Go give her some love.
Everything But the Truth
Author: enigmaticblue
Disclaimer: I don't own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Rating: PG-13
Pairings/Characters: Tony/Bruce, Skye, the rest of the Avengers and the SHIELD team
Spoilers: Takes up immediately where Force of Nature left off. Uses and disregards wide swaths of canon for Avengers: Age of Ultron and season 2 of Agents of SHIELD
Warnings: none
Word Count: ~42,000
Summary: Call them what you will—Inhumans or enhanced people or freaks—they’re about to take center stage. As Skye struggles to find her place on the Avengers’ team, torn between the family she’s creating and her duty to the rest of the world, there’s a battle going on over SHIELD and what it will become. And for Bruce and Tony, there are decisions to be made, because just because you can do something doesn’t mean you should. Alliances will shift, rifts will form, and there’s no telling who will be standing at the end of the day. Because everything changes; everything but the truth.

Written for the 2016 [profile] marvel_bang with artwork by taibhrigh. Please give everybody some love.
Her Heart’s Apocalypse
Author: enigmaticblue
Rating: R
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Tony/always-a-girl!Bruce
Spoilers: For The Incredible Hulk through The Avengers
Word Count: ~31,000
Warnings: References to child abuse, domestic violence (both consistent with Bruce Banner's comics backstory), transphobic and homophobic language (brief), alcoholism. Note that this is always-a-girl!Bruce, not a trans character
Summary: R. B. Banner remains a mystery that no one can quite grasp, at least not until she meets Tony Stark.
A/N: Title taken from the Green Day song, “Extraordinary Girl”. Originally, I was writing this for the trope_bingo “genderswap” prompt, but then it took me a year to finish (OMG), and here we are. So, I mostly wrote it just to see if I could. It was an interesting exercise, that’s for sure.

On AO3 due to length.
Younger Now Than We Were Before
Author: enigmaticblue
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters; too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Bruce Banner/Tony Stark, Steve Rogers/Peggy Carter, Peggy Carter/Daniel Sousa
Spoilers: General spoilers for Agent Carter and Captain America: Winter Soldier.
Word Count: ~19,500
Summary: Bruce can’t allow Steve’s anguished expression to move him. “Don’t you think there are things we’d want to change, too?” he demands. (Or the one where Steve, Bruce, and Tony travel to the past and discover some interesting things about themselves and each other.)
A/N: A few things: this fic is set somewhere in the nebulous time between the fall of SHIELD and Avengers: Age of Ultron, but I’m ignoring anything in AoU that doesn’t fit with this fic. This story is brought to you by several IM conversations [personal profile] thomasina75 and I had while watching Agent Carter. I have tried to make it as plausible as possible without fudging too much. Finally, this fills the February [community profile] hc_bingo challenge for the following four prompts: “forced to rely on enemy/rival,” “nausea,” “comfort food or item/feeding someone,” and “WILD CARD (grief)”

For my friends who aren't into slash, the Bruce/Tony is more pre-slash or friendship than anything else.
It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)
Author: enigmaticblue
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters, too bad, so sad.
Pairings/Characters: Tony/Bruce (background), Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester, Clint BartonSpoilers: For Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Fraction and Aja’s entire run of Hawkeye, and a sequel of sorts to Things We Lost in the Fire
Word Count: ~4300
Summary: When asked where he was when SHIELD fell, Dean would say, “In a cage, with my brother.”
A/N: Written for the hc_bingo prompt, “cages.” This is not entirely compliant with SHIELD, as was probably obvious from the last fic, but I think I’ve tweaked things enough to make sense. I hope. Also, this is completely non-compliant with Clint’s character in Age of Ultron. I much prefer Fraction’s version.

Word Count: ~4500
Summary: For a long time, Bruce has wanted to be invisible. And then he is.
A/N: Written for the hc_bingo prompt "invisibility." Somewhat inspired by the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode, "Now You See Me," and title from the musical Chicago. What can I say? I'm eclectic.

A/N: Goes AU during “Love in the Time of Hydra,” and ignores a good part of Age of Ultron.

Note: Even if you're not normally a Science Bros shipper, I'd encourage you to give this a try, particularly if you're a fan of Agents of SHIELD. The shippiness is fairly low key.

And please go give my artist some love, if you would.

A/N: Written for thomasina75’s birthday. She wanted domestic Science Husbands and Tony cooking for Bruce. I’m using it to fill the WILD CARD (food porn) prompt for [community profile] trope_bingo
