Irondad Fic Rec

Sorry I disappeared! I was rereading a long fic, writing one, and have been working full time. I might make these less frequent to make it easier on me but I have no plans to stop anytime soon. Today’s fic is

Hero by lady_oneder

Summary: Time travel is fickle, and Tony is busting out his dad moves. Peter just wants to take the physics test he studied hard for.

OR

Tony, Morgan, and Peter accidentally travel back and time and meet Howard and Maria Stark

-/-/-

Can this be a trope please? I absolutely love all the tension and interactions between Howard, Maria, Jarvis, and Tony, Peter, and Morgan. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of this and I really just want to read about 50 more fics just like it. Howard Stark’s A+ parenting is my favorite tag because it’s so sassy and never means what it says. The juxtaposition of Howard’s parenting vs. Tony’s parenting is truly beautiful.

I’m gonna do something a little different today and rec a whole series! I’ve wanted to do this for awhile, but I always get caught up on how to format it. As a series, this is incredible. One of my absolute favorites. But I also believe that each individual fic deserves attention. They’re all so different and so good in their own right. So without further ado, enjoy

IronFam Post Endgame Cuddle Fic by Sahiya

Nursery School Hell Germs 
Summary: Peter and Tony find out what anyone who is related to a small child knows: that the germs they bring home from preschool are THE WORST
Word count: 4,904
My mini review: Sick Tony and sick Peter taking care of each other and being dramatic in the process is everything. I love the little details the author chose to include, like not having TVs in the bedroom to limit Morgan’s screen time. My poor babies are so sick and I love the equilibrium of trying to take care of each other when they both feel like death. It’s probably my favorite sick fics ever and it doesn’t get too repetitive with descriptions of what’s wrong. The dialogue is super authentic and well done, and appropriately witty at points. It’s really, really well written. Anyway I’m in love with this fic. It’s wholesome and wonderful and the best sick!fic


Head Above Water
Summary: “FRIDAY has all the emergency numbers,” Pepper said, “including Morgan’s pediatrician. There’s food in the fridge––soup for Tony and Morgan, lasagna and mac and cheese for you. Make sure Morgan is drinking her Pedialyte, and see if you can get her to sleep in her own bed tonight. And don’t let Tony go on a fever-driven work binge.”
“Got it,” Peter said, nodding. “FRIDAY, fridge, Pedialyte, no work binge.”
Word Count: 15,080
My mini review: Time for Tony to get sick with his other kid! I love Peter trying his best to take care of them and how he’s completely unconcerned about their germs lol. I could feel how overwhelming this would be for him and it’s a great companion piece to Nursery School Hell Germs. There’s a part in this, in the 2nd chapter, that just makes my heart melt and I about cried. It was such a realistic real portrayal of that character and emotions. Just..it was perfect. Peter is The Best™ big brother and son in this!! The Best™. This fic is soft and perfect, as is all of Sahiya’s writing. 


All That We See or Seem 
Summary: “There is one more thing, Tones,” Rhodey said, watching him.
Oh God, Tony thought wearily. “What is it? Just tell me.”
“Peter thought you were dead.”
Tony blinked. “What?”
Word Count: 16,738
My mini review: The first time I read this series, I read it backwards. So I started with this fic and it’s my favorite of the three. This fic is everyone taking care of Peter, but instead of being sick, it’s in the aftermath of torture. It’s done so well and Morgan Stark broke my heart. You know when you read something and it’s everything you didn’t know you wanted? That’s this for me. I love Tony and his reaction and Morgan with hers and all the characterization and it’s just really really well written. This fic made me tear up. There’s so much more I could say, certain lines that I adore, but I don’t want to spoil this fic any more than I already have. So give it a read. For all the angst, there’s so much comfort! I love it 3000.


That’s a lot! But I hope you guys read and love this series like I do! And Sahiya doesn’t have a Tumblr but if you liked it, please let her know! Also if you know a way to contact her, please have her message me so I can invite her to my discord group. Thanks for reading, supporting, and being a part of this fandom.

IronDad Fic Rec

Happy Hump Day. Per usual, I’m obsessed with today’s fic rec. If you also like it, be sure and let the authors know! This is for everyone who loves FFH & Irondad.

Planes, Trains, and the Trauma Response by @imgoingtocrash & @savvysass

Summary: The world around him is solid. It makes sense. Despite the existence of aliens and literal gods in their galaxy—the science of it all makes sense. They just have yet to figure it all out.

Then he’d been thrown into a spiral of falsehoods—one after another, all so fast, all so real—and suddenly he’s in the Netherlands. It’s too nice compared to the horrors he became used to—a far cry from the real world: a world of dead parents, dead uncles, and half of a universe, dead with the snap of one creature’s fingers.

Where once there was certainty…now there’s fragility. So, when he sees Tony step out of the plane instead of Happy…he falters.

OR: Tony appears during Far From Home. Not much changes, but some things do. At the very least, Peter gets cared for in the wake of a barrage of traumatic events.

-/-/-

Do you ever read a fic and just get so excited??? I re-watched FFH and found this fic, also known as everything I’ve ever wanted, a couple hours later. I think I was so excited about it when I was reading it that I didn’t feel how sad it is. I’m just ecstatic that this exists. It’s seriously everything I’ve ever wanted. I love it so much!!! And it made me cry!!! Give me all the angst and whump where Tony can comfort Peter!! And from the bottom of my heart, thanks for not making Tony an illusion @imgoingtocrash and @savvysass. I would pay money to see this played out on screen but you’ve wrote it so well I’ll never have to. 

Also it’s super in character, really well written, and killed my feels, if you couldn’t tell already. It’s a super sweet fic that you need to read.  I love it 3000 and it is perfect!

Iron Dad & Spider-Son Fic Rec

Today’s fic is really short and really enjoyable. I’m so so excited to share it with you guys!

Lab Day by @ferretshark

Summary: A snapshot of a lab day with Peter and Tony

-/-/-

Okay so first off, this is a drabble less than 500 words. So you have absolutely no excuse to not stop what you’re doing right now and read this fic. It’s a wonderful little slice of life that just makes me smile so much! I love Susan’s look into the early irondad relationship and how they start to work together doing one of the most widely accepted headcanons of this fandom, lab days! I love Peter’s uncertainty and awkwardness and Tony’s I’m-the-coolest vibe.

And if you ever like a fic, always be sure to let the author know!

Iron Dad & Spider-Son Fic Rec

I’m sorry that the fics this week have all been short. I keep telling myself I don’t have time to reread the long ones, but then I reread six short ones in a row.

Topsy turvy by @iron–spider

Summary: hey

omg that delivered

you’re right, Stark phones are far superior

or is it just this particular one you gave me


Tony stares at his phone as the messages come in, and he narrows his eyes. He shifts a little on the couch, glances at Pepper.

“What?” she asks, catching his eye. She looks down at his phone. “What did Peter do?”

“Do I have a Peter face?” Tony asks. “Peter in danger expression?”

“I don’t know,” Pepper says. “Is he in danger?”

Tony sighs. “I hope not, but I’m—I’m not optimistic.”


-/-/-

This is the type of IronDad fic I live for. Tony digging Peter out of trouble with lots of banter and concerned dadding. I love this fic so much.

Hey friends! I’m on a roll. Five days in a row! (Don’t worry, it won’t last.) 

Better together by @aileenwood

Summary: Due to traffic, after what seems to be like the forty longest minutes of Tony’s life, during which he endured Peter practicing random animal sounds with Morgan on the backseat (he’s pretty sure they don’t have whales at the Central Park’s Zoo, so their practice wasn’t making a whole lot of sense) while trying to estimate how long they will take so that Happy can be there to pick them up on time, they finally arrive.

“See you in three hours, Boss,” Happy tells him through the window as they disembark. He takes a look at Tony and the kids, who have already started making their way towards the entrance without him. “Good luck.”

-/-/-

DOMESTIC IRONFAM RIGHTS!!!! I love this fic so much! Tony taking his kids school shopping? Fun zoo adventures? Protective big brother Peter Parker? Yes!! This is such a fun wholesome read! 10/10 recommend.

Iron Dad & Spider-Son Fic Rec

I should have posted this one a month ago. But I, uh, didn’t. So…Have a Christmas fic in the middle of January. I bet some of you haven’t even taken your tree down yet.

Tangled wires by @iron–spider  

Summary: Tony sits cross-legged on the floor of Peter’s living room, holding the offending string of lights in his hands. The whole room glows in psychedelic reds and greens, blinking manically in what Tony imagines the inside of Peter’s head looks like at all times. Peter himself is sitting on the floor across from him, a look of pure concentration on his face as he puts together a small snowman that jingles whenever he moves.

“How did you do this?” Tony asks, finally, staring intently at the string of lights. “Why did this happen? Did May do this? Was she liquored up?”

“So many questions,” Peter says, brows furrowed as he sticks the snowman’s arms in.

“So little answers,” Tony says. The string of lights is completely tangled, in a way he’s never seen before. And he’s seen lots of tangles.

-/-/-

@iron–spider is amazing for a reason y'all. The characterization. The dialogue. The banter. This fic made me giggle and it just has the feel of what Christmas is supposed to feel like. I also love that I get the mentor/mentee turned genuine friends vibe from this. I love my irondad fanon.

Iron Dad & Spider-Son Fic Rec

I really didn’t mean to rec the same author two days in a row, but this fic was next on my bookmarks. And this author is super talented. 

Occupational Hazzard by @captainkirkk

Summary: Peter flaps a hand in the air, grasping for words. All he’s left with is the thought that’s been running through his head all night: “There was this dilapidated building out near Hell’s Kitchen, rotted all the way through, and I kept staring at it and thinking, This thing could go down at the smallest breeze.” Peter gestures at the roof over their head. “Even this apartment could go down easily enough.”

May rubs his hand. “Buildings don’t just collapse, Peter. Did something happen to make you worried about that?”

Peter shakes his head. He doesn’t ever give her details. He doesn’t tell her about the intimate, gnawing kind of horror that came with being trapped beneath a collapsed building and knowing no one was coming to save you; the way it felt like his bones were being ground into the damp cement; how he’d felt small and very soft, and how his thoughts keep going over the components of a building—rusted metals, long nails strong enough to jut through cement—and how that might’ve pierced him if he’d moved wrong, like a fork pulled through slow cooked meats.

(Peter learns to cope and communicate with the people around him, post-Homecoming.)

-/-/-/-/-


I have a weakspot for traumatized Peter. I’m also a complete sucker for fics that merge school life and Spidey life in the way that this fic does. The way it details Peter’s trauma is so realistic and something I think about literally all the time. I wish there were more fics like this. I absolutely love Peter and Neds friendship in this. I need more fics with Ned. I also really love how concerned everyone is for Peter! May! Ned! MJ! Tony! One of my favorite parts is this little excerpt into May:

May watches the news with a wet kind of intensity, and grips Peter’s hand. She doesn’t say anything, yet. She doesn’t have the words. One day, she’ll cup his jaw and tell him how proud she is, how she looks at the red and blue posters strung up around Queens, the t-shirts barring his symbol beginning to populate even the further parts of the city, and thinks about how amazing he is.

But for now, she clutches him tighter in each hug, and only cries when she’s sure he’s at school, and watches the news with a terrified hunger. She doesn’t forbid him from being a hero. For now, that’s enough.


Another thing I adore about this fic - Tony finding out about the warehouse and opening up to Peter! Another favorite line from this fic is from everyone’s favorite Iron Dad, “I’m not going to take the suit away. You earned this. Your aunt might hate me, and I might be condemning myself to a world of guilt if anything ends up happening to you—anything worse, because I think your trauma is giving me trauma, and I already have a guilt complex like you would believe—”

Okay, enough spoiling. I love this fic 3000. It’s one of the best, most realistic fics that I’ve read dealing with the aftermath of his trauma on an everyday basis. It’s phenomenal. You should really read it so you can love it as much as I do!

And as always, whenever I rec a fic, if you like it, please let the author know! That’s why I do it. I want to share what I love and spread encouragement and positivity to all the amazing authors in this fandom.

Iron Dad & Spider-son Fic Rec

Sorry I’ve been MIA. I read this fic last night, thought about for 5 hours, reread it and then made this post because Blayne is phenomenal. 

Quid Pro Quo by @pokeydotes

Summary: Peter and Ned need a favor, Tony has an idea, and Pepper needs a vacation.

Or the one where Peter somehow ends up working as an actual intern and they all get more than they bargained for in the process.


-/-/-/- 

One of first words that come to mind with this fic is unexpected. Wonderfully unexpected. That’s probably because when Blayne told me her original idea for it, I didn’t imagine it including everything it did by the end. And I’m so glad she’s the genius she is because guys, this is one of my favorite fics ever. I think it’s one that’s gonna stay with me for a while. 

With that being said, I think it’s best to go into this blind. So I’m not going to give a detailed review. The way she writes fluff and dialogue and nervousness and inner turmoil and angst is just perfect. The pacing is excellent. The banter is The Best™. Blayne has such an understanding of these characters and mad, mad writing skills. She’s easily one of my favorite authors in this fandom.

Read this fic. And if you like it, make sure to let the author know!

Irondad Fic Rec

Since it’s so late in the day that I’m posting this, I thought it’d be fun to do a fic with the nightmare trope for today’s fic rec. 

Sleepless Nights by @alieenwood

Summary: “Karen, cancel call! Cancel call! Cancel– ”

There it is.

“What the hell is going on?”

“ca– oh heeey, Mr. Stark!”

“Karen, run his vitals for me,” he says without a beat of hesitation, not even bothering to ask Peter directly – he knows the kid will just try to avoid the question.

“Peter’s vitals are currently normal and stable,” Karen supplies helpfully. “However, you’ve been called since it is past his curfew, and the Bedtime Protocol has been activated.”

“Seriously?” comes Peter’s offended voice from the background.

_________________

First off, I cry when I’m really tired too so this is so relatable. I love the hurt/comfort in this fic. My favorite aspect of fanfic is that it touches on the psychological aftermath of canon (aka trauma). And this fic does a beautiful job of that.

IronDad Fic Rec

I purposely skipped a day because those last two fics deserve to be read and enjoyed. Anyway, today’s fic is so fun!

@ironman Follows You by @malynaa

Summary: “Eighteen detentions last month alone, disgraceful amount of absent hours – often odd classes mid-day or half a day. I won’t mention the after-class clubs, or nerd groups, or whatever it is you do for ‘fun’ that actually counts in to your records anyway.”

Peter sat frozen on the spot, his face growing hot and red after rapidly paling when Tony began talking.

“I – I – look, I, let me explain – “

“That’s,” Tony pointed at him, silencing with one look, “that’s where we might start.”

“Start?” the teen repeated uneasily.

Sweet Jesus, what did he have on him?

“I solved it all, you’re welcome.”

A beat of silence as Peter blinked at him.

____

Or all your favorite tropes thrown into one happy bundle of fluff. Twitter, sick!Peter, dad!Tony, dickhead!Flash - you name it, I write (scratch that, probably have written) it. Because I’m a slut for iron dad like y'all, domestic hoes.

-/-/-/-/-/-/-

Okay so I went to rec this fic forever ago and when I went back to reread it, I realized I had only read the first chapter (of 6! Oops.) The title made a lot more sense after I read the rest of it.

The first chapter is one of my favorites. It’s so fun and features one of my all time favorite tropes - Tony going to Peter’s school! It feels so in character and I just love it a lot. It’s probably some of my favorite dialogue and banter for IronDad that I’ve read! Scratch that - it is my favorite dialogue. The author has their voices down so well. It’s freaking amazing.

The rest of the fic is different from the first chapter. It’s focused on social media but it’s done really well and is so fun to read! It shows the evolution of their relationship through online interactions and the reactions they get, as well as lots of stuff in between! (sick!Peter) The tweets are so funny but there’s a lot of stuff in between the Twitter interaction that I adore. 

Anyway, you should definitely give this fic a read! And if you like any fic, be sure to let the author know. 

Also, if @malynaa has a Tumblr, let me know so I can tag them!

Irondad Fic Rec

Okay guys I know it’s been a while, but I just read a fic that is criminally underrated and I needed to bring it to everyone’s attention ASAP. 

Cause and Effects by PokeyDotes

Summary: There was a gas attack in Midtown. It was scary, but everyone was fine. No big deal, nothing to worry about. At least not until Peter started losing track of reality.

Or the one where Peter just wants things to be normal, but he’s pretty sure he’s losing his mind. And trying to help him is going to cause Tony to lose his.

————————————

I don’t even know where to start with this fic. It’s made me revive my fic rec series because it’s that damn good. (Shoutout to @frostysunflowers for rec'ing it and bringing it to my attention) THE PLOT. THE PACING. THE CHARACTERIZATION. THE DESCRIPTIONS. AUNT MAY - One think I continuously loved about this fic was May Parker and how her role wasn’t erased for irondad. This fic felt real. It felt like canon or a really really great book/novel. Have I mentioned that it’s one of the most well written things I’ve ever read - published, fanfic or otherwise? It’s not just writing style, which is off the charts amazing, but the plot and pacing and characterization, foreshadowing, overall storytelling, literally everything about it. I haven’t read the comics but I saw where one person said it manages to feel like MCU Peter and Comics Peter at the same time. 

The mixing of genres and emotions is unmatched - horror, whump, fluff, humor, suspense. I was on the edge of my seat. And laughing at times. And terrified for Peter. And angry. And then I was upset that more people haven’t read it. This deserves to be one of the most popular fics in the fandom. 

Tony isn’t soft dad Tony in this. Not to say that he isn’t a soft dad, because I think he can be and I love fics like that. But he just…feels like Tony in this. He’s worried sick and overprotective and just, everyone’s characterization and relationship dynamics feel right. 

The author had this idea in mind for two years before writing it and IT SHOWS. This is phenomenal. Read it. Just…read it. And shower it with the love it deserves. It’s so freaking good. 

(And if PokeyDotes has a Tumblr, please let me know!)
