Ah, my shiny summer fling fandom and my shiny summer fling ship. ♥ SCIENCE BROS ♥
(I think my shipping feelings re. the Avengers can be summed as a) everyone/everyone, b) Tony/Bruce(/Pepper), c) Steve/happiness, and happiness, sometimes thy name is Natasha, d) Natasha/people who appreciate her, and e) did I mention the everyone/everyone? So there's that.)
Anyway! Tony and Bruce! They delight me, and the fic is great. Here are some I've recently enjoyed.Stark, A.E., and Banner, R. Bruce. (2013). "Biodosimetric Tools for Measuring Induced Isomeric Transition in Inverted Paired States." International Journal of Radiation Biology 89.9, 43-85.
(explicit, Tony/Bruce, Tony/Hulk, with Tony/Pepper in the background, 17000 words)"And so," Tony concludes triumphantly, "you owe it to science, to yourself, and to the people of New York City to have tons of hot awesome monster sex with me."
This is so great. First there's the title, and it just keeps on being genius from there. What I love most about this is the fact that it's about how when Tony's into someone, he's really
into them, every part of them and everything they are and this story does a great job of showing how much he enjoys both Pepper and Bruce and everything about them. (The characterisation of Pepper in this is particularly excellent.) And although this story is demonstrably about Bruce Hulking out during sex and Tony being super into that and the two of them figuring it out, it's also about Bruce's relationship with the Other Guy in a more general sense, and it works really well. <3Living Dangerously
(Bruce/Tony(/Pepper), rated R, ~1600 words.)Bruce visits Tony and Pepper. They're very hospitable.
:D Adorable domesticity is adorable. Emergency Pants
(explicit, Tony/Bruce, background Tony/Pepper, 5000 words, Rough sex, breathplay, S/M)"Were you worried?" Tony says. "That's sweet. That is always so adorable when the big guy worries about me."
The inside of Tony's brain is both slightly alarming and completely entertaining, and no more so than in this story. :DNo Qualifications Needed
(explicit, Tony/Bruce, background Tony/Pepper, 2800 words, Discussion of Hulk sex. Size kink. Danger kink.)It isn't that Tony doesn't like Bruce. It's just that he also has a few fantasies about the other guy.
I love me a good talking out a fantasy story, and this one is particularly great.
And lastly, a body building website interviewed the Hulk (as relayed by Joss Whedon) which includes the following gems:
You typically work on your own. How did you like working with your fellow superheroes in The Avengers?Full interview at the bottom of the page here
Hulk: Puny avengers! They get in Hulk's way. Except iron one. Hulk like iron one: he's shiny and pretty in the sky.
What do you eat in an average day to maintain your 1,500 pounds of body mass?
Hulk: Hulk like pasta—sometimes too much! also big steaks, broccoli, legumes ... Hulk not eat Captain America's Nazi-alien nemesis! That rumor started by puny Stark.
