[RECS: Week 8] - Avengers (MCU)

The Act of Creation Will Be Your Salvation (Avengers | Steve Rogers/Tony Stark | Mature | 84,678)
Author: scifigrl47
Summary: When Tony Stark was seventeen years old, he built his first AI. On that day, he ceased to be his father's creation, and became a creating force in his own right. That one act likely saved his life, and not always in the most obvious ways.
Reasons for Reccing: If you're in the Avengers fandom, you've definitely heard of this author. If you haven't, I'm incredibly proud to be the one to introduce you to her. Go now and read everything she's written. It's going to take awhile so be sure to stock up on food and supplies. As far as this story, it's tragic, beautiful and wonderful. The way she writes Tony - his PTSD, his trauma, his complexity, his faults and triumphs - is perfect. The writing is effortlessly flawless and despite it's length, there's never a dull moment. Don't let the original premise scare you away. Not only does Tony build robots, he also manages to build a family.
