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!

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!
