[ other ] lite brite

Looking for actions-have-consequences fics that focus on Team Iron Man.

Themes I'm looking for but haven't found because the fandom saw Iron Man 4/CACW and started hating on Team Cap:

Where both sides were a little right and a little wrong.

Where Tony isn't a precious innocent who did nothing wrong. (Neither are any of the other Avengers, but the amount of woobiefication of Tony post-IM4 got to be too much.)

Where someone calls Tony out for recruiting a child soldier (Peter), misleading him, lying to his legal guardian, taking him out of the country and putting him in danger. Ideally Aunt May, but I'll take what I can get.

Where someone points out that Vision's energy weapon is what injured Rhodey, and that all Sam did was dodge it, and that Sam was fucking para-rescue and could have done some critical first aid (though maybe he did in IM4 after the fade-out).

Where it's acknowledged that Crossbones brought the bomb and set it off, and Wanda tried to mititgate the damages.

Where someone points out that Thaddeus Ross is a villain. (I'm convinced that IM4 takes place in 2017, because he'd totally be a Trump hire, not an Obama one.)

Where at some point, the Avengers remember that they are adults and they discuss disagreements and compromises and--gasp!--go to the UN conference as a united front to discuss them, since they are the ones who'd be the most affected by them. (ETA: Well, them and every Inhuman, as seen on Agents of SHIELD.)

Okay, so that was a little bitter and ranty, but I really am looking for fics like this. The only fic I write is self-insert fluff or I'd take a crack at it myself. I know Team Cap did stuff wrong, and I don't expect them to be held blameless, but the only evils in the movie are Strucker, Hurt!Ross, and Martin!Ross (he totally counts after the whole "laughing at the idea of due process" thing).

They don't all have to be in the same fic, of course. Those were just examples.

Gen or any pairing or more-ing that doesn't include Darcy or Loki is welcome,
