Looking for a De-Aged Fic

Hi all - I'm looking for a fic that I think was on AO3 but can't remember. It was a fic where the gang was changed into children.

The only real clear part is the ending. The story ended with a woman (Pepper??) challenging the bad guy that if they really wanted to win, they would have changed Steve into his old sickly form and not a healthy child he was turned into. She went on to list the ways the other Avengers would not be saving the world due to helping Steve (Tony not in his workshop, Clint and Natasha hunting the globe, etc).

Sound familiar to anyone?

FOUND: Irish Steve

Repost because my brother is an asshole that deleted it

Hello all now I have a challenge for you. This is a story that my sister told me about that we can not find no matter how much we look for it. She thinks that it is on AO3 but we could not find it there.

My sister told me about a short story where the avengers go to the bar on St. Patrick's Day. It was from Steve's perspective with him thinking about how weird it was that being Irish was now being celebrated. He was thinking about how his parents came over from Ireland and it was a big deal that his parents were Protestant and Catholic. Heck it was also really hard for them to get jobs.

Now here are some details that we are not sure about. Banner said something about how the Hulk would fit in with all the green. Also at the end, Steve says something in Irish to Tony which Tony could not understand but Tony still thought that it was cool.

I think that this is a really cool idea and I would just love to read it.

FOUND! by green_grrl it is While Everyone's Lost (The Battle Is Won) by jukeboxhound

I am also seriously impressed by my sister's memory! Thank you all!!!

Tony Stark Sercit Identitiy Fic

Hi Folk. I'm new to the fandom and have just recently learned that there are plural Marvel continuities where it is not known that Ironman is Tony Stark. Since "X learns Y's secret identity" is one of my favorite plots ever, I'm looking for fic along these lines (the angstier the better). I've dug up the following on AO3, but I'm sure there are others out there:

Alter. Ego. http://archiveofourown.org/works/485818?view_adult=true

Hidden Truths http://archiveofourown.org/works/117246

Bizarre Love triangle http://archiveofourown.org/works/362129

These happen to all be Steve/Tony but I'm very open on genre and pairing. Gen is great too! Thanks in advance!

(no subject)

Hiya everyone!

Today I'm looking for fics involving a very focused Tony. Objectively, we know the man is a genus. He's not just the owner of his father's company, but is the one who actually did something with it. He's probably very focused, and determined, especially when it comes to science and engineering.

So these would be fics in which people find it's actually very hard to get his attention when he's working on something, because of how into it he gets. Possibly also see the fruits of his labour, so it doesn't look like the things he gives the avengers are just toys designed by his faceless minions.

I'd also like it Tony manages to wow people with an actual display of his intelligence. Dropping into technical lingo unintentionally, keeping up with other scientists, maintaining a complete conversation with Bruce Banner in a language which only sounds like English but isn’t – that kind of thing.

Give me an intellectual hard on, essentially. I have a massive thing for smart talk, and people being highly intelligent, and unconsciously so, so it doesn’t feel like showing off. Like he loves science first and foremost.

I’m good with Bruce/Tony and Tony/Steve, but for the purposes of this search I think the former is more relevant.

Am I making sense? I hope so!

Thanks in advance,
