AVENGERSGEN: ROUND 17  
Hey all!

Since things are pretty slow around here, we won't be having a new round every month, but this post will serve as the active post until/if things get busier. The mods are still monitoring things, and we'll still be around, so this isn't to say that we've abanoned the comm and are shutting things down. It just seems a bit silly to keep posting new round when everything's so slow - so this'll be our current round for the time being. :)

Prompt away!

Remember:

* Put [FILL] in the subject line when filling a story.
* Multiple fills for prompts are not only okay, they're encouraged, as are multiple story requests.
* After you reply to a prompt - posting your story in direct response - please also post a comment to the fill post, with a link to the thread of the filled prompt.
For those archiving their stories on AO3, feel free to post to the comm's collection.

Steve & Natasha, adoption, kidfic
Set in an AU or unspecified future period in which things have cooled down from Civil War and everybody's friends again:

So Steve and Natasha both want kids but feel like it's out of reach for them (Natasha because she physically can't, Steve because of his difficulty forming relationships post-defrosting and being Married To The Job), and neither of them are comfortable with the prospect of single parenthood because of the hazards of the superhero lifestyle. So they adopt together (either proper adoption or "rescued a clone kid from a top secret genetics lab" adoption).

Just platonic life partners Steve & Nat with their kid(s), and bonus points for the other heroes as eccentric honorary aunts & uncles, Nick Fury as grumpy spy grandpa, etc.

Crossover: Elemental Masters AU
Superheroes with elemental magic! Can be a historical AU in the 19th or early 20th century like the books, or take the worldbuilding forward in time.

I've seen AUs for other fantasy conceits (daemons, fantasy creatures, Hogwarts, etc.), but not for anything based on Mercedes Lackey's Elemental Masters novels.

GEN, Steve, Avengers, de-aging and fluff
Shortly after first Avengers movie (or after mass fix-its or what have you, the team's together either way). They're fighting some (magical?) enemy and Steve gets turned into a kid. A kid who is only just mastering speech. Who hasn't learned yet that his mother's tongue will get him in trouble throughout the neighborhood. Basically he's running all over the place and what little he does speak is like ~80% Irish with a dash of sing-songy mish-mashy language soup that bears only a passing resemblance to English he picked up from other tenants (immigrant families) in their apartment building. He's not at all shy about 'giving' the Avengers every word he knows.

Sadness is okay because all their stories are sad, but gentle sweet/fluff fun and bonding would be preferred.

I am indifferent to whether he keeps the benefits of Erskine's work or to how permanent the de-aging is. Good luck!

Massive bonus to portray all the present characters as reasonably intelligent people even when they make stupid mistakes (significant headcanon of mine, sorry if it causes you trouble)

(Also, politics wear me out, please leave them out of the picture. I mainly just need some fluffy interaction right now. Not trying to be picky, just something that seems to crop up more with MCU than anything else)

(rtmi very welcome)

Re: GEN, Steve, Avengers, de-aging and fluff
This sounds...so good. I'd love to read it!

(I'd love to write it, for that matter. But I think I'm a bit rusty on my Avengers writing skills!)

Steve, Tony, are you SURE?
Something happens so that Steve's relaxed, inhibitions are down (I would prefer them just being comfortable enough with each other, but...this is them), and he's just rant-rambling confusedly at Tony about how it just doesn't make sense: he can't see Howard with a family.

Like maybe if he accidentally cloned himself and convinced the most competent woman on the planet (bar Peggy who is awesomeness incarnate) to adopt the kid and make sure he turned out all right when he realized this kid was smarter than him, that makes infinitely more sense than Howard of all people actually maintaining a relationship deep and long enough to get married and have a kid.

Tony, for his part, cannot stop laughing. This is awesome (he almost wants to adopt Steve's theory for the entertainment value alone).

+ For all Tony's genius and Steve's respect for Howard, Tony really reminds him far more of Bucky in personality. This is bittersweet to Steve (he's not looking to replace his brother/best friend), but extremely cathartic and helpful to Tony (who has spent his whole life only ever compared to Howard)

++++Nobody being an idiot, and everybody (present) gaining empathy for the others

Avengers, Steve, Bucky, Howlers, time travel
Basing it on something I suspect may (though probably won't) happen.

Infinity War happens, there's a climax and the only way to fix things/save reality is for one of the people close enough to do something that everyone assumes is a suicide run/potentially fate worse than death. While the others are distracted figuring out who, Steve just moves and gets it done. He (thinks he) knows the cost and it's not that he's suicidal, he just genuinely considers himself the most expendable of the group and there is no way that any of them are going to die or suffer if he has any chance at stopping it.

And then he wakes up, back in The First Avenger, either early with the Howlers or right before he goes to rescue Bucky/107th. It basically hit a reset button for him and sent him home, but left him with the knowledge and memories gained from the next several years.

What does he change (I don't think he could manage not to change anything)? Who would he risk confiding in? How bad is the round of culture shock this time, now that he's finally home (which he wanted so much, for so long) and no longer really fits? [How much hell is Bucky gonna cause seeing how hurt his baby brother got, pretty much overnight?]

+He confides in Peggy, who believes him (partly because he sucks at lying to or even deflecting her, partly because he's changed enough in subtle ways that it makes sense)
+The Howlers don't completely refrain from teasing, but they do warn him when something he's doing/saying is weird enough to draw the wrong kind of attention, and have his back with outsiders (he'd almost forgotten what it was to be seen, to trust)
+Something at the end with the future ramifications or at the beginning with other peoples' reactions before it resets

Steve, Tony, Bucky, it gets worse, tw: major character death, (possible) suicide
When Steve tells Bucky to run in Siberia, he actually does so and Tony's the only one who comes back. Bucky pulls off the raft rescue, but when the others learn the details, Sam insists on suicide watch as a precaution.

How things go from there, I leave to the author.
