au meme: The Avengers | Bruce/Tony in which they’re both science professors.

Upon returning from a long sabbatical in India, Bruce Banner finds that in his absence a new prof has joined the faculty of the community college where he works. Tony Stark is manic, sharp, unreliable, and seems to thrive in a state of perpetual chaos- the complete opposite of mild-mannered Bruce, and the exact kind of person he normally tries to avoid. Still, as the year goes on Bruce begins to find that not only is Tony a genius (much like himself), he’s also all too enjoyable to spend time with, and that maybe their contrast is exactly what he’s been missing.

I’ve been wanting to write Bruce’s story for a while now, and I got it finished up today. Most of that part of it is taken from canon and then played with, of course. I hope you want to read it and enjoy doing so as much as I wanted to write it and enjoyed finishing it.

TRIGGER WARNINGS: extreme child and spousal abuse, attempted suicide, misc. violence including allusions to torture.

He finds his center of balance in India, amid chaos that he can’t control, a language he cannot speak, poverty and desolation he cannot cure. The kids who find him here have eyes only slightly darker than the circles under his and- slowly, carefully, always with focus- he treats their ills and mends their broken bones.

This place is all shades of red, yellow, orange, and when he isn’t working Bruce allows himself to soak some of it in. His skin is brown by now.

He goes from city to city, living in worn down apartments and rooms, staying a while and then moving on when he feels restless or paranoid. His clothes get dirty and then don’t get clean again.

Bruce breathes. He fixes. He keeps his head down. He does good. He stays angry.

He hasn’t had an episode in nearly a year.

OH, IT’S A REASONABLE SACRIFICE - a bruce/tony fanmix

I. NUMB marina and the diamonds

i got dark only to shine
looking for the golden light
oh, it a reasonable sacrifice

II. IMITOSIS andrew bird

it was then he heard his intuition say
we were all basically alone
and despite what all his studies had shown
that what’s mistaken for closeness
is just a case of mitosis

III. ASTRONAUT amanda palmer

is it enough to have some love?
small enough to fit inside the cracks
the pieces don’t fit together so good
for all the breaking and all the gluing back

IV. OH MY GOD ida maria

oh my god
oh, you think i’m in control
oh my god
oh, you think it’s all for fun
is this fun for you?

V. THE MODERN LEPER frightened rabbit

is that you in front of me
coming back for even more, exactly the same
you must be a masochist
to love a modern leper on his last leg

VI. HAVE TO EXPLODE the mountain goats

name one thing about us two anyone could love
we roll out the red carpet when rotten luck comes down the road

VII. PEOPLE HELP THE PEOPLE birdy

god knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
guess the loneliness came knocking
no one needs to be alone

VIII. THIS IS WHY WE FIGHT the decemberists

when we die
we will die
with our arms unbound
this is why, this is why we fight

VIIII. THE SCIENTIST coldplay

tell me your secrets
and ask me your questions
oh, let’s go back to the start

au meme: the avengers | Bruce/Tony in which they’re basically super domestic married husbands. Bruce sleeps in while Tony is up at the crack of dawn with his ideas, joint showers preserve water, and nobody really knows how to cook.

Bruce: ”Do you always look like this when you get up?”
Tony: ”Generally.”
Bruce: ”I’ll make a point of waking up earlier from now on.”
