Fics that detail Tony's small physical stature

I'm looking for fics that detail Tony's small physical stature or where it's significant. Think Robert Downey, Jr. small, or even exaggerated smallness.

In addition to that, I'm looking for any fics that aren't clearly marked on AO3 where Tony is de-sized or has always been a teeny tiny little man in a world of humans. Think Borrowers-size or similar (less than a foot tall), with or without the borrowing/stealing from regular humans.

Loki's family used to torture him.

I am looking for yet another fic. I only remember one scene and the scene is question was a flashback in the fic.

Details: The torture that Loki goes through in mythology are true. Loki was bound along with his wife Sigyn. The chains that held them were very resistant to magic. The snake that dripped venom into Loki's eyes was his son Jormangundr. Fenrir was also with them and bound but I can't recall how his entrapment was linked with Loki's torture. Sigyn was possibly getting close to break out the entire family when someone (Odin?) brings in another 2 of Loki's children. These are Vali and Nari (Narfi?). One of them is turned into a wolf against their will. The other is then fed to the wolf-changed child. Then the blood of the dead child is used to strengthen the chains that hold the family captive. Eventually Sigyn finds a way to break the chains that hold them in place. However, she dies as a result. Once freed, the family tries to piece back together the deceased child, but it was impossible since parts of his body was digested by his brother.

dumping a lover for an ex, and back again

With the six Avengers and all the people around them that be counted as part of the team or support, somebody might have used this plot line for this fandom.  I read this originally in an X-Files story.  I do remember that it had the central four characters: Mulder, Scully, Skinner, and Krycek, but it's been several years since I read it so I don't remember who dumped who to be with who, so I'll just refer to any four as A, B, C, and D.

A and B are dating/sleeping together/living together, whichever.  A is totally in love with B.  C, who has been away/missing/out of the picture, suddenly shows back up.  B and C used to be together and B is still in love with C.  B throws A over to get back with C.  A is broken hearted but leaves quietly, knowing he was second choice anyway.  After a short, but intense time, D pops back in the picture. C is in love with D, only getting with B because D wasn't around.  C leaves B for D, same as B did to A.  After a length of time, D decides he cannot deal with C's intensity/crazyness/neediness/whatever and ends the relationship.  Brokenhearted, C goes back to B, who is ready to dump A again.  (Actually, I think somewhere along the line the dumped one get fed up with the whole thing and tells the returning ex to shove it.)  Get the picture?  I hope this isn't as confusing to you as it's becoming to me.  It's basically a vicious game of musical lovers, with uncaring lovers and broken hearts all around.

Goddess, I really don't want to tag every possible pairing that can come out of this...
