Hurt!Tony, Reckless Avengers

Hi all! I'm looking for general fics (and one specific fic) where Tony gets hurt either saving another avenger or due to the (reckless) actions of another avenger

I'm also looking for a specific fic (same theme), I remember reading it on AO3. Tony and Steve don't get along, and in a battle, Tony was advising Steve on how to deal with their enemies (I think it may have been doombots) and Steve ignored him, leading to Tony getting hurt trying to protect (?) Steve. I can't remember the title, but it was an interesting read.

I'm looking for the above fic, and any other stories that deal with the same theme, doesn't matter which avenger it is, or if there are pairings

Thanks for your help!

Specific Fic - mind-reading and calculating probabilities

Hi everyone, 

Looking for a fic that has been bugging me for awhile.  In this story, Clint (I think) is able to read minds temporarily and he tells the rest of the team how Tony is constantly calculating percentages and probabilities during battle.  In fact, nothing Tony does is random, it is always the best possible move.  I believe this discussion takes place when the others are giving Tony a hard time for being reckless.

Ring a bell to anyone?

Team fic, Bullied Clint, Protective team

Hi All,
I'm looking for any and all post-avengers, Clint centric team fics. Fics about the team realizing how amazing Clint is, or how broken he is. Or fics where Clint is being bullied/ostracized by bitter SHIELD agents who blame him for what Loki made him do, and the Avengers find out and help Clint/get protective of their little broken hawk.
Thanks : )

Iron Man 2 Fridge Logic Fixer

I was wondering if you guys know of any fic (or commentary, or whatever) that addresses the Fridge Logic issue I have with the premise of Iron Man 2. Now, I like the movie, but I keep slamming into this one gaping plot-hole, and it interferes with my enjoyment. I was hoping there is a fic out there that fills in the gap.

Let me explain (Warning, Fridge Logic Ahead):

It's demonstrated in the suit removal sequence at the Expo that the suit is run on its own reactor, not the one in Tony's chest. This is important because it means later when JARVIS says using the suit is accelerating Tony's health issues, it's because of the activity, not the mass power draw on his reactor. That fixes one issue, because if it was the power draw, the immediately obvious thing to do would be to run the suit of a different reactor. Oh wait, he did.

However, this opens up another can of worms. If he doesn't need it to power the suit, why does Tony need a reactor in his chest at all? It's established in IM1 that the reactor is massive overkill, and car battery level power will do just fine. So why keep the reactor in his chest when he could hook the electromagnetic up to a laptop battery or something? For that matter, why keep the reactor IN his chest? Why not use a longer wire and keep the reactor in his pocket? That would be a lot less heavy metal exposure than having it in his chest.

Anyway, I keep trying to fan-wank a decent explanation for this, but have had no luck. Anyone know of one? I expect if it exists, it would be a conversation between Tony and Bruce. Or maybe Coulson?

Specific 5 Things fic - Clint/Phil

Good evening,

I'm looking for a specific 5 things or 5 + 1 fic that ended in a Clint/Phil relationship, I don't think it was established from the beginning. Anyway, it's about 5 times someone noticed how much Clint and Phil seem to touch or invade each others personal space. The one I remember best is from Tony's point of view, who finds the two sitting on a stairwell with Clint sitting a few steps below Phil and leaning against his legs, or something similar.
Does anyone know which story this is? I'm about 90% sure it was on ao3.

Thanks in advance for your help!
