I have read this fic but can't seem to find it. Natasha is undercover somewhere and finds Tony being tortured when she didn't even know he was missing. And then she saves him.
So Tony Stark has been reveiled as adopted. Are there any stories that deal with his original family? Him looking for them, or them finding him? Are they heros, villians, aliens or just ordinary people?
This is my first time posting here and I'm not sure if I'm doing it right.
So Google has finally failed me (or rather, my memory has) so I'm asking y'all for help.
I remember a couple of things, going by the assumption that they're of the same fic:
1. Loki fell to earth for some reason or another. He ended getting all buddy with Jane and Erik and Darcy. I can't remember if the fall was before or after the Avengers. I think it was before, when he fell off the Bifrost.
2. There was this myth thing that one of the mortals were reading, about how the myth-Loki killed Balder and was punished by being tied to a rock and having snake venom drip on him and Jane said something like how he deserved it for killing his brother and the Loki with them at the moment just lost it and said that the murder was actually an accident
3. The killing balder thing actually happened, except that balder was the bad guy and he was going to kill Thor so Loki had to stop him and he fashioned a spear out of mistletoe and threw it at Balder, except that he didn't want Balder to die, just to stop him
4. During this time, Heimdall was imprisoned for his own safety. The password to free him from his cell was "Thor lives", which Thor found out by going to the place where Loki was being punished and holding up a shield to, well, shield Loki from the venom while he asked Loki about Balder's death and then sent for Heimdall as proof of Loki's innocence
5. Someone else eventually got imprisoned in Asgard's dungeons again and Sif or someone had to say "Thor lives" to free them
6. (I'm not sure if this came from the same fic or not) but like, Jane wanted to watch a meteor shower and got really upset when the sky clouded over on the night of the meteor shower. So Loki took her up into the clouds to watch the meteor shower and said something about showing her how to fly properly bc Thor was always sucky at this sort of thing. And during this time in the clouds, Loki had let his shielding magic down so that Heimdall could see him and Heimdall told this to Thor (for what reason I don't know)
And that's about as much as I remember.
It was on AO3 and someone please help me find it because it's driving me crazy.
Sorry that it's so long
