#irondad fic rec

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. 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!

For You Only by asofthesea

“After a few moments, the burning fades to a dull pain. He focuses his eyes on his right wrist and sees the name written, Peter Parker. He can’t help but feel joy. He isn’t unlovable, he isn’t unimportant. That name is the most beautiful thing he’s ever seen.

When his head turns to look at his left wrist, his blood runs cold. It reads, Peter Parker, also. That can’t be good.

He is messed up. He was finally given a soulmate and he’s going to fuck it up so bad that they become enemies. What would the point even be to meet this person? It would hurt more than anything to have the person who is supposed to fit perfectly into his life hate him.

Destiny is a bunch of bullshit, he decides, and he is going to do everything he can to avoid Peter Parker.”

In a world full of soulmates, Tony Stark doesn’t have one. He deals with it until he can’t anymore, and by the time he gets one, he’s too far gone.

(A Peter & Tony platonic soulmates AU)

A Horrific Game of Hide and Seek by Buckets_Of_Stars

Aside from feeling strange and having his Spidey Sense go off every five seconds, Peter is having a pretty good week. His Dad is home and he can even hang out with his friends more.Too bad things don’t stay that way.One mistake as Spider-Man changes everything and the teenager realizes the importance of always listening to his gut. Because that might be the very thing keeping him safe.

A Stark Contrast To The Expected by Buckets_Of_Stars

Can we skip to the good part? by yourgaydad

A day after his sixteenth birthday Peter finds out that Tony Stark is his biological father. But what the hell is he supposed to do now?


If Peter said that he never thought about Mr. Stark as his dad he would be lying. He didn’t do it consciously of course. It was just those things at the back of his head that sometimes got closer to the surface. But whenever a thought like ‘Wonder what dad would say’ or ‘Is dad picking me up today?’ occurred, he felt extremely embarrassed about it.

Now, instead of being ecstatic about Mr. Stark being his father, the boy felt agitated at just the thought of talking to the man. What was he going to think? That Peter wanted more attention? Money? His name?

Congratulations, it’s a Boy by capiocapi

“Sir, I have the results.”

“Okay, Jarvis. Hit me.”

“It’s a match. 99.9% chance that he is your biological son, which is the percentage needed to be recognized by law as a biological parent.”

Tony’s stomach did a funny swooping dance. “Great. Congratulations to me then, eh? It’s a boy.”

Heed my senses, I can’t do it alone by Webtrinsic

Peter thought things were going his way, he really did. His relationship with Tony was going great, his grades were steady, May was supporting his heroic debuts and his friendship with Ned had never been stronger.

But when the man lurking in the shadows, whose all-consuming addiction to the senses affiliated with the red and blue vigilante kidnaps him, things quickly go south.

In the meantime, Tony’s fearful he’ll never find the boy he’s come to see as his son.

Will Peter ever be alright? Tony’s not sure, but he’ll do everything and anything to ensure that boy’s well-being.

He just hopes the world isn’t too much. It’s Tony against the world, and for Peter, he’d win every time.

“Not too many months after Carter moved in, May got a promotion at work.”

Spaghetti With A Side Of Panic by Buckets_Of_Stars

Getting all A’s in the Stark household used to be a requirement, something exspected of a young Tony, genius kid prodigy. It was always brushed off, made to further elevate Howard’s immaculate reputation.

Now, however, it was a cause for celebration, one where Peter, Tony and Happy would go out to dinner and stuff their faces with as much spaghetti as they could.

David wasn’t a person Peter would ever want to be around, but with him being May’s new boyfriend and all, it makes it harder and harder to avoid him. But it was fine, May was happy and of course, Peter still has Tony.

But that was before the hitting started. Before David spit neglectful words in his face and the spiderling begins to question his very worth.

The Chilling Realities Of Hunting And Being Hunted by Buckets_Of_Stars

All Peter and Tony had to do was cross the mountains. That’s it. Just climb a few hills and get to the Convention. They didn’t count on the snow, or the wind, or the fact that neither of them have cell service.

And they definitely didn’t count on the fact that they would be hunted—stalked—as they sit, freezing and shaking, on the side of the road.

The Education Complication by Buckets_Of_Stars

But when a new Gym Teacher with a hatred toward Iron Man gets hired, the 13 year old is going to find that following these two simple steps has never been more difficult.

idea from @ironmanstan ’s post i just… made a small change


“So.” Tony takes a bite of his apple, pointing it almost accusingly at Strange. “There are really infinite universes?”

“Yeah,” Strange says.

“There’s one where this apple is blue?”

“I’m sure.”

Tony laughs. It’s bitter, almost, short and not meant to be directed at anything funny. “That means there must be one where I’m happy.”

Strange was about to play along, say something like, “Seems unlikely” but Peter runs in, eyes and smile increasingly bright. “Mr. Stark! Okay, okay! I have a very serious question.”

Based on the laugh Peter was holding back, Strange guessed it was not, actually, important. “Would you ever make an Iron Man suit that just… irons?”

“An ironing man? Maybe.” He makes an act of thinking, a finger on his chin. “But if it’s anything like DUM-E, it just sounds like a fire hazard,” Tony says with a smirk.

Peter sighs, ever dramatic. “Very well.” As he exits, they hear a deflated, “Back to the drawing board, Clint.”

Tony smiles, actually smiles, into his coffee and Strange abandons his deprecating joke.

“Yes, Tony, there is a universe where you’re happy,” Strange says, bringing back the interrupted conversation. The smile Peter brought on is still stubbornly stuck on Tony’s face when he looks up at him. “You’re already in it.”

The short one where Tony lets Peter drive—much to everyone else’s confusion.


Tony always drove. That was unspoken knowledge between the Avengers. No matter where they went or how long, it was Tony. Each person at some point had offered to take the wheel but every time, Tony refused.

This wasn’t expected to change in a day.

An extensive gala had brought Steve, Bruce, Natasha, Tony, and Peter—who Tony had insisted on taking with them—nearly three hours away from home. If the drive wasn’t exhausting enough, the gala drained every last bit of energy.

Peter was still buzzing excitement, though, loudly considering the first ever gala he went to a huge success. Tony kept tired eyes on the road, taking quick glances to the teen in the passenger’s seat (another insistence) whenever the homeward traffic thinned.

In the backseat, Bruce was nodding off while Nat and Steve chatted over him quietly. Tony yawned for the third time and Peter stopped talking.

“I can drive for a while, Mr. Stark, if you need.”

Steve and Nat abandoned their conversation, silently watching Peter make the same mistake they had years ago.

Tony looked at Peter for a moment and then back at the road.

Steve leaned forward, ready to clap Peter on the shoulder. “We’ve all made that mista—”

“Let me find somewhere to pull over,” Tony mumbled.

Steve and Nat shared a confused glance. Nat woke Bruce up with a careful elbow to the stomach. Steve caught him up.

Nat raised a suspicious brow. “You never let us drive.”

“I didn’t teach you how to drive.” Tony’s voice was tinged with his apparent drowsiness. For a man who spent days at a time awake, he tired fast after forced socializing. “I taught the kid.”

“Does he even have his license?” Bruce asked.

“He does,” Peter answered. “Got it a few months ago.”

Tony smirked and pulled over, switching seats with Peter.

For a half hour, Tony fought off sleep with giving Peter low reminders, not bothering with further easing the backseat’s dumbfounded looks.

So @keep-a-bucket-full-of-stars posted about wanting some Irondad fic recs and I, being the Irondad & Spiderson obsessed gremlin that I am, figured I would make a little rec. It’s fifteen wonderful fics of varying lengths and degrees of angst (I know 15 doesn’t seem like a little rec but uh…


…and that’s just Irondad fics)

So, yeah, fifteen fics (in no particular order):

Archetype by Bean_reads_fanfic

Tony knows something is up when the research of ex-Hydra agents gets recycled in an underground Oscorp lab… what he doesn’t expect is the boy in a hospital gown sticking to the ceiling; or, how said boy proceeds to imprint on him like a baby duckling (a poor decision on his part, really). Did he mention he wasn’t intending on bringing home a kid that day?

All in a Title by StarkMan

“Nothing.” Clint said, innocently. “It suits you, domestic life.”

Mr Stark opened his mouth to retort but shut it after a moment, shaking his head.

“It’s lovely to see. Real sweet.” Clint continued, ignoring Bruce’s unsubtle nudges in his side. “Almost fatherly.”

Peter glanced to his right and watched Natasha frown slightly at Clint. Steve’s eyes shifted and met his own and Peter could feel his face heating up. No, no, no, why now? He cringed internally and forced his eyes back to the screen. That was definitely an inside joke. They’d picked up on Peter’s avoidance of calling Mr Stark anything.

Filling the Gaps by ironfamjam

Tony looked at him, bold and true and utterly sincere, “Kid, I’m on your side, no matter what.”

Like most good things, it started with an accident.

Well, kinda.

This is a story about how a snarky, emotionally stunted genius became more than a mentor and how a just-trying-to-figure-it-out, doing his best superkid became the son he never had. No matter how empty our hearts are, love can always fill the gaps.

It’s About Time by shewritesall

Tony has always been overprotective of his son, Peter. After being exploited by his own dad, Howard, to bring good publicity to Stark Industries, Tony vowed never to let that happen to Peter. But now Peter’s about to go into high school and Tony has to face reality: his little boy isn’t going to be little much longer. Maybe he should let Peter out into the world a little more. Tony quickly regrets it.

The Spider’s Head by Allthemfanfics

Peter Parker is Spider-Man, he faces dangers everyday that would be enough to give anyone nightmares. But, Peter doesn’t have nightmares. He never has, and sometimes, his parents worry. Their son isn’t having nightmares, shouldn’t that be a good thing? For Tony, it means that Peter isn’t facing the demons he needs to face. For Steve, it means his son is holding back feelings and bottling them up.

But when Peter falls into a deep sleep and is unable to be woken up by anyone, the Avengers panic… and are forced to turn to a longtime foe for help.

a spider by any other name by scottmchungup

5 times the Avengers met Spider-Man on accident, and the one time it was on purpose.

All the Avengers know, and subsequently love Peter Parker Stark. Spider-Man however, is just a guy who they infrequently see at work. But when more of the team comes to town for the Stark-Rogers (possible) wedding Peter’s secret alter ego gets more face time with the superheros than planned.

A Silhouette Hallowed in Light by Webtrinsic

After the death of May Parker, Peter is adopted by his mentor who would do anything to keep the vigilante safe. Until Nick calls about a string of missing persons and leaves it up to the Bug team to go undercover and stop them.

(Not just a bug team fic, Tony has more parts with Peter I promise Iron Dad fans :3)

While Peter’s excited to be of help, and get to go on an adventure with his beloved Bug team, Tony struggles and fears the worst. Sadly even with Natasha and Scott protecting the boy, Tony was right to do so.

tw: torture, kidnapping, dehumanization, abuse

note: This is so good and I cried and I just. So much angst. And so much hurt. But also so much comfort. And just. Yes.

note pt.2: it’s the second in the series and the first is literally 1k words establishing the Bug Team as a thing (which, I love)

decidedly dad-like behaviour by RandomRuth

“Something came up,” Tony says. “I had to make a detour on my way to our lunch meeting. I’m sorry you’re gonna miss those bacon sandwiches you like but…” Tony trails off and jerks his thumb, indicating the back seat.

Rhodey twists around and jumps. “Holy shit,” he says, just shy of shouting it.

(In which Tony is late for lunch with Rhodey and there’s a good reason for it.)

Maybe take a sick day? by spiderboyneedsahug

The main cause of stress in Tony Stark’s life.

Simply put, Peter’s a smart kid who is too dumb to take care of himself. Enter Tony Stark, billionaire, genius, stressed pseudo-father, and a weekend trip to the New Avengers Compound.

So, yeah, that’s that, I guess. Feel free to ask for more fic recs (for this or other things- my number of bookmarks in AO3 is nearly 900. I read sort-of a lot)

Hi! Sorry to bother you, but do you know any fics with Professor Tony and Peter as a student, I've been looking everywhere but I can't find any good ones. If not, it's okay. Love your work and thank you.

This B.S. Better Be Worth It by @losingmymindtonight

Originally, Tony’s plan had been to just surprise Peter with the fact that he would be on campus for a semester.

He’d never actually expected Peter to sign up for his class.

I Promise You It’s Worth It by @theoceanismyinkwell

Peter Parker is a freshman at MIT who’s struggling to find his place until the day he comes out as trans to his professor, Dr. Tony Stark. From there, he finds a fast friend and mentor in the man, who will be there for him through thick and thin–even if that means through pain, angst, joy, sorrow, jokes and tears.

Sickfic Two-In-One by Svn_f1ower

Two sickfic drabbles in one fic!

1st: Peter is Tony Stark’s biological baby with a cough.

2nd: Tony Stark is a high school teacher and Peter is in his homeroom when Mr. Stark notices the poor kid looking worn and sick.

Best recs for Irondad fics that are also spideychelle?

cracks knuckles 

brace yourself my dude, this is my very specific niche and I have made it my personal mission to find/write fics that have both. This is not an exhaustive list by any means but are some of my favorites off the top of my head:

And because in this house we love and respect our own writing, I present my own favorite fics that have ~the best of both worlds~:

I have been meaning to create a new/updated fic rec list that has some of my favorite recent stories so ty for the reminder my dude. I’ll get on it!

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.


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.

anon asked for fics where peter is hurt in a spider-man related incident and i was an idiot and deleted it 

* = incomplete

Danger Pizza  by alice_in_ink

summary: The window was pushed open, and Iron Man’s head popped into his bedroom.  “Here’s where I’m confused—why lock the front door but leave the fire-escape-accessible windows unlocked?”  He clambered through said window.  “Seems like a safety hazard.” 

Peter eyed the metal suit as it straightened to a standing position.  “Did you break into my window to kill me?”

The face plate lifted, and Tony’s eyes quickly looked over the teen.  “Christ, kid.  It looks like you’re halfway there.”

A wild night on patrol leaves Peter with a broken back, and boy, does he want to be able to move without dying.  (So he calls Anthony Stark, obviously.)

pairings: none

tags: hurt/comfort, fluff

warnings: none

I was wondering if you or any of your followers could help me? I was reading a fic about irondad where Tony was Peter's bio dad but they both didn't know. All I can really remember was May was pretty mad because she knew. I never got to finish the fic but it was really good so if you could help me find it I'd be so greatful!

 I’m pretty sure you’re looking for Don’t look back and don’t be scared by SparrowFlight246

It’s the second part in their My father’s son series, so I’d recommend first reading the one previous in which Tony finds out he’s Peter’s biological father after giving blood to him following an injury!

Hi! Love your writing. Do you have any fic recs (including stuff you’ve written) with steve/bucky/sam helping out the whumpee? If not thats cool. Thanks! 🙂

Hello & thank you so much! I don’t read much fic that doesn’t involve IronDad, and I definitely don’t read much fic without Peter as a main player, but I think I’ve got a few things that might float your boat?

red alert by @thwip–thwip | 1k

“Oh,” Peter blinks again, and Tony can feel it as the kid tentatively pokes at the wound, blood welling up from between Tony and Steve’s fingers. Peter’s hand comes away dripping red. “Yikes.”


Written for the prompt ‘human shield’ for Whumptober 2019.

It me! You said including myself so….xD This is about the only thing I have that fits this criteria. It’s a short little fic I wrote for Whumptober, but it features a little bit of Steve!

When the Dead Are All Living by @captainkirkk | 10k

Somehow, Peter continues to run into a dangerous, homeless man around New York. Somehow, Peter avoids being killed. Somehow, they become something like friends.

(Peter and Bucky’s unlikely friendship, following Bucky’s road to recovery).

One of my favorite authors, this fic doesn’t exactly have the whump you might be looking for, but it’s an incredible look at a Peter-Bucky friendship and one of my all time favorite Bucky fics.

Held Together verse by TunaFishChris | 32k

Steve is not coping well in the twenty-first century. At all. Three months after the Chitauri invasion, he decides he’s had enough.

But just as he’s about to end it all, he runs into the new hero in town.

This is a really great series, both parts! Steve is the whumpee in the first part, and it’s somewhat split in the second part with Peter but - a great Peter-Steve friendship fic, and overall just a fun time!

the rattle of their hearts by @iron–spider | 58k

Tony deals with the aftermath of Infinity War. He needs to get things back to normal. And Peter is an essential part of normal.

How could I not put @iron–spider on any list of mine? This fic has some great Peter-Bucky interaction, with a little Steve thrown in! Also just - it’s @iron–spider! Everything she does is AMAZING, I guarantee it. If you don’t like her writing, meet me in the Denny’s parking lot and we’ll fight to the death.

The Closest Thing He’s Got by @upcamethesun | 15k

After Spider-Man’s final showdown with the Vulture leaves him the worse for wear, he’s found by none other than Steve Rogers.

Or, five times Tony Stark deeply resented Steve Rogers’ new involvement in Peter Parker’s life, and one time he did not.

Another Steve fic! This definitely seems like it’d be up your alley; featuring Civil War Feelings and Peter being an absolute wild child, such a fun time.

Fitting In (Tiny Spaces) by @captainkirkk | 3k

Peter’s trapped beneath a collapsed building during a mission, hurt and unable to move. Luckily, his comm still works. Unluckily, the Avengers don’t realise how bad of a state Peter is in, and Peter isn’t inclined to tell them.

“Spidey, they’ve got reinforcements. We’ve hit a bit of a snag here, and I don’t think anyone will be able to help you for a while. Think you can sit tight while we deal with this?”

The pressure on his lower back and legs was becoming too much. Peter swallowed thickly, fighting down panic. He could handle this.

“Yeah,” Peter said. “I can do that.”

The original Peter’s-trapped-and-can’t-get-out fic, I will never shut up about how good aloneintherain is. Featuring Steve and all of the core six Avengers!

It Was Probably The Pudding by Serendipity_Cometh | 77k

Given that over the course of the past eleven months Peter Parker hasn’t contracted so much as a head-cold, the teenager thought it safe to assume that the whole ‘irradiated spider bite’ gig had equipped him with an immune system of steel that rivalled Captain America’s.

So when he wakes up one night in the midst of the worst asthma attack he’s suffered in almost eight years, neither he nor the rest of the team can think of a logical explanation.
And everything sort of goes downhill from there.

(Set in an Alternative Universe where Peter moved into the Avengers’ Tower following the events of The Amazing Spider-Man.)

Another absolute classic and one of my favs, featuring a deathly ill Peter and the Avengers, circa 2012. Steve is a wonder in this one - and we get a little Stony. As a treat.

shelter also gave their shade by @mellaithwen | 4k

Injured after his final battle with the Vulture, Peter Parker gets some unexpected help.

“As if anything would’a kept you away from that beach.” Captain America scoffs. “Brooklyn’s ours, Buck. Besides, we look after our own.”

Spoilers for Spider-Man: Homecoming

Steve and Bucky pick Peter up after the fight with Vulture :’) Have a little heart to heart, such a good fic!

Coulson’s Eleven by @copperbadge-writes | 32k

After Vanko destroyed the Stark Expo, SHIELD instituted a Superhuman Detention program, designed to capture and hold dangerous people – dangerous people like Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and others who made themselves noticeable. The superhumans SHIELD has imprisoned – and some SHIELD agents themselves – have other ideas about what constitutes ‘dangerous’…

Incredible AU fic and one of my all time FAVES! Doesn’t quite have the whump, but it does have some wonderful Peter-Steve friendship! 

I hope this satisfied your craving, my dear anon! Please remember to leave a comment for the author if you liked any of the fics here!
