The press crucifies Tony; the team stands up/strikes back.

Any stories were tony is vilified by the press and the team publically stands up for him?  It could be about his arms sailes, or hs slut-boy rep, or lies about Iron Man harming citizens, or any bit of Tony-gossip. (Like why he doesn't show up for some event; he on a bender.  But he's actually working hurt or working on the suit or something for the team.)  Or it could be lies about Stark Industries (which would tatally get Pepper riled up).  It could be a Hollywood gossip rag, a daily newspaper, serious or social newcast.  And the team writes the paper in response, or calls a press conference or stands up for him immediatlly, however you will.  And how does Tony react?  Does he agree with the attack?  Is he surprised by the teams adament support.

Bucky/Nat without Red Room backstory

Hi there! I'm looking for MCU Bucky/Natasha fics that don't involve Red Room backstory, aka fics where they take an interest in each other and have never met before the Avengers. They can bond over shared experiences, that doesn't bother me, I just don't want callbacks to their (romantic) history from the comics. Any recs would be appreciated! :)

Sam made Steve a mixtape

I'm sure I've read in a story somewhere that Steve recognised/was humming along with a song and when asked how he knew it, it came out that Sam had made him a breakup mixtape/playlist for the fall of Shield, and whoever he was talking to (Natasha or Tony?) wondered what you'd include in a mix for breaking up with a clandestine government agency.

I know this is super vague, but does it ring any bells with anybody?

Tony is (not) Darcy's father

I'm pretty certain this fic is (was?) on AO3, but for whatever reason I can't find it. Basically, Tony and Darcy act like they're father and daughter, even though they know they're not related, because they like it. I think it starts with a joke that spirals into something bigger and eventual father/daughter happiness, though I'm pretty sure that only Darcy and Tony know that they're not biologically related and that they let everyone else think that they are. I know that's not a ton to go on, but if I remember correctly, it was a pretty short fic. I would be really grateful if anyone has any idea about the title/author/location of this fic
