Anthropos Polytropos is found here on lj or here on AO3.

Hello all!  There has been some interest expressed on having a complete version of Tony's list, and I've gotten a few comments from people saying they missed a good majority of the references.  Since I'm so nice, I decided to give you both Tony's list and a list of references in case anything caught your eye and you'd like to know more.

So without further ado, have Tony's list of facts about himself and a list of quotes.  Let me know if I've missed any.

The lists )

Disclaimer: I do not own the Avengers movie-verse, nor do I make any claim to.
Characters:  Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Clint Barton, Natasha Romanov, Bruce Banner, Thor, Amora the Enchantress, Pepper Potts, James Rhodes, Happy Hogan.
Warnings: PTSD. Mentions of past torture. Temporary character death that the characters are aware is (probably) only temporary, though it still takes it's mental toll on them.  Mentions of potential child abuse.  Mind fuckery.  Minor self-abuse.  Cliff hangers.  Implied bullying.  Generally dark fic, though there is a happy ending and no one actually dies.  Not Iron Man 3 compliant in the slightest.  If you have any questions about the warnings, I'd be more than happy to clarify as best I can.
Rating: I think I'm just going to leave this at an M due to how dark it gets and some of the themes.
Summary:  He doesn't remember much from before he woke up, but he does know two things.  He doesn't like being called Tony Stark, and he hates Captain America.
Thanks: Many thanks to narwhale_callin for the beta.  Considering I have a long history of beta's dropping off the face of the planet mid-fic, I really appreciate you sticking with me.  <3  Also thanks to pagen_godess, AnonEhouse, jesabele, Teyke, szzzt, TheGatheringStorm, Eternal She-Wolf, beizanten, Redrikki, Chleom, Rueroux,  Wildmage_of_galla, and CeraTay for reviewing and to all those who give kudos.  Special thanks to those of you who have stuck around since the beginning and have left many comments that have brightened my day.  I do appreciate them greatly.
Notes: Well.  This is the end.  XD  Took long enough, I suppose, though it's nice that I haven't needed to miss an update.  That doesn't happen often.  I'm kind of sad to see this end, to be honest.  It's a multinational baby, since I wrote it in the States and typed and posted it in China.

To those that have been reading from the beginning, and to those who are just now stumbling upon it, I hope the journey has been enjoyable, if a long one.  Hopefully the ending has been worth the long road.

Thanks: Many thanks to narwhale_callin for the beta, despite how I confuse you with Avengers canon.  Special thanks to pagen_godess, Teyke, NightmareShinigami, Wildmage+of+galla, EternalSheWolf, Redrikki, CJAndre, Gadhar, mistersilver, and Merbef, along with everyone who left kudos.  It has been a very rough week, and seeing the comments cheered me up a lot.
Notes: First of all, for those of you who were wondering, the non-Shakespeare quote from last week came from Revenger's Tragedy.  The line was "When the bad bleed, then is the tragedy good."  There is an excellent movie version of the play with Christopher Eccleston, Eddie Izzard, and Derek Jacobi if there is anyone interested in seeing it.

Second, I hate to do this, because after this is the final chapter, but I'm not entirely sure if I'll have internet next week.  I'm not entirely sure I'll have a place to live next week.  There are a few things I'd like you to take note of in light of this.  One, the final chapter is written.  Two, I will not leave this fic without an ending.  You can look through my past chapter fics to know that I always finish what I post.  Three, I will try to get this up in a timely manner, but please be understanding that a timely manner may not be possible at the moment.  There's a lot going on and it has not been a good week.  It doesn't look like it's getting better any time soon either.  Just keep in mind that life does take precedence over fic.

Finally, enjoy the chapter and all the warm fuzzies.  After all of that angst, you guys deserve it.

Thanks: Many thanks to narwhale_callin for continuing to beta, despite me being evil and sending her tentacle-y things.  Also thanks to Redrikki, szzzt, Gadhar, penscritch, beizanten, sodoesrachael, lilsmartass, EternalSheWolf, Chleom, and actionfan for the reviews and to everyone who left kudos!
Notes:  Upping the chapter count again.  It's not Nar's fault this time.  That's actually my fault for miscounting.  -_-;;;  I apparently forgot to count the epilogue in there.  Oops.  Also, let's take a look at those warnings, shall we?  There's two words I'd like to focus on: cliff hangers.  That's been in the warnings since the very start, so don't come whining to me that I left you guys hanging.  You read the warnings, you knew what you were getting into.  No amount of threatening will change that.  XD

This chapter is basically 'Spot the Shakespeare quotes!'  The main question is if anyone can spot the one non-Shakespeare quote.

Notes:  Why is this chapter so short and there's suddenly nine instead of eight chapters total?  Blame my beta reader.  While I am not overly happy with splitting this chapter and making it and the next one so short, Nar argued for it and this didn't seem to be enough to fight her over.  So you get two short chapters rather than one normal length chapter.  Hopefully the sword fight will be forth it.  And yes, Whitman was clichéd to use, but really, I don't have the will power to resist that sort of thing.

Thanks: Many thanks to narwhale_callin for continuing to beta, even when I've managed to actually confuse her with my word switches this time.  I'm still surprised she didn't catch something was off with 'petting' when I meant 'petty'.  XD  Also, regardless of what she might say, no tea was killed or harmed in the making of this fic.  Also thanks to T. Nielsen Hayden, thelostcity, Chleom, penscritch, EternalSheWolf, and beizanten for leaving comments.  The kudos are always appreciated as well.
Notes:  So that warning about minor self-harm?  That's this chapter.  Tony is not entirely aware of what he's doing and a lot of it is subconscious, but there are mentions of it and one particular instance where he holds something sharp a bit too tight without thinking about it.  Just be aware of that, if that's one of your triggers.  On the plus side, there's plenty of cuddles.  Just in case I didn't already have way too many in this fic...

Notes: So it's probably still Sunday for most of you, but I'll have you know I got up earlier just to be able to post this before I had to leave to catch my train.  It's barely 6 am.  Seriously, the things I do to make sure you guys get the chapter.  You can also thank Nar for getting the chapter to me despite her busy schedule and a ready excuse on my end for her take the extra time if she needed it.  Anyway, I'll be out of touch for a little while, so don't expect replies to comments until I'm recovered from having to take a Chinese hardsleeper train.  I really hate train rides...  >.<

This is probably one of the shortest chapters.  It also has a fairly ominous name.  Look to those warnings, people.

Thanks: Many thanks to narwhale_callin for putting up with me when I don't make sense, which is apparently a lot in this fic.  I blame being tired while typing it.  Also thanks to Kassie2q4u, Sunset Silver Flame, Salmastryon, Teyke, Redkenja, Wildmage of galla, shiro_tora, Chleom, and beizanten for reviewing and to everyone who left kudos.  You guys are making me feel loved.  <3
Important note about next week's update: It may not happen.  I'm really sorry, but I'm not really sure yet how much internet I'm going to have next week, if at all.  I'll try to get it up by Wednesday at the latest, but if you don't see it by then assume I'm skipping next week and expect an update on the following Monday.  Trust me, I'd much rather be updating fic than spending up to 60 hours round trip on a train with no interwebs, but one does what one must when visas are involved.  So like I said, I'll try to get this up next week, but if not, you'll have a two week wait with the next chapter.  I apologize for the wait, but life does happen.

Thanks: Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] narwhale_callin who stayed up to help me fix my numbers problem.  Because yeah, the numbers were the clusterfuck I thought they would be when I started writing this.  -_-  Also thanks to Salmastryon, Teyke, Wr3n, Kassandra, Chleom, and anon for commenting!  I appreciate the comments and the kudos.
Notes:  First of all, the warnings have been updated.  Chleom's comment made me realize I'd forgotten implied bullying, so please take note of that if it's one of your triggers.  I knew I'd forgotten one.  I really do apologize for not having that in there earlier.  Second, I'm pretty sure my numbers got mixed up.  We blame Tony entirely, because both my beta and I are English majors who are no good with numbers, and therefore it's all Tony's fault.  Still, it should be fixed now.  Finally, take a good look at those warnings before continuing on with this chapter.  There's a lot more PTSD on the way, and those things I've mentioned as temporary start to come into play now.  And more cliff hangers.  Because I like that sort of thing.

Thanks: Many thanks to narwhale_callin for the beta. Also, many thanks to keroseneSteve and kerravon for being the only two people across lj, AO3, and ff.net who decided it was worth commenting on.  I do appreciate the comments, and kudos people have left.
Notes: So, hey, it looks like China has stopped blocking lj again.  Yay for that.  Anyway, this chapter has way more Captain America, and some of the PTSD trigger warnings.  I was honestly wondering if Tony's panicking in this chapter was a bit too much... and then I saw Iron Man 3 and realized I probably could have gotten away with more.  So yay for that too!  Also, the next chapter may be posted on Monday instead, because Fridays tend to be more hectic.

Prologue

Waking up was a terrible idea. That usually meant more pain, though he couldn't have said how he knew that was a thing. )
I finally come bearing fic!  Blame Nar being busy if you want more.  Anyway, here's the start of Avengers long fic.  I did at least get it out before May 4th.

Temporary character death that the characters are aware is (probably) only temporary, though it still takes it's mental toll on them.  Mentions of potential child abuse.  Mind fuckery.  Minor self-abuse.  Cliff hangers.  Generally dark fic, though there is a happy ending and no one actually dies.  Not Iron Man 3 compliant in the slightest.
Rating: I think I'm just going to leave this at an M due to how dark it gets and some of the themes.
Summary:  He doesn't remember much from before he woke up, but he does know two things.  He doesn't like being called Tony Stark, and he hates Captain America.
Thanks: Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] narwhale_callin to finally getting around to betaing this.  Even if it did take her a while and there's still another fic waiting for you in your inbox.  I'll forgive you this once since you're busy graduating and making us proud.

Notes:  So hey, I managed to get this out before May 4th.  Just barely by a few hours, but it's totally still morning in the states anyway.  I do have a few notes about this sucker.

First, this fic is long.  It's over 57k at the moment, provided Nar doesn't make me cut it down more, and in eight parts.  It is completely finished, aside from some betaing, so if all goes well I should update once a week.  Though I may move my update day from Friday to Monday since that may end up being easier on me in the long run.  Even if I don't make my once a week deadline though (I have accidentally forgotten to update in the past, and Nar is a busy person), I promise you this fic will be completed.  I didn't write 57k just to let it sit on my hard drive after all, even if it is all completely jossed by Iron Man 3.

Second, I'm afraid I've once again failed at slash.  I do think I've put Steve and Tony in a fairly satisfying relationship of some sort, be it friendship or something more, by the end of the fic though, so don't write me off just because I'm a gen writer.  I know how you slashers' minds work.  Give it a chance, even if there aren't any make out sessions.  What I lack in UST, I make up for with ridiculous amounts of cuddles and subtext.

Third, pay attention to the warnings (and do let me know if I've left anything out, because it's a long fic and I can't help but feel I've forgotten something).  As stated, all character deaths are temporary, but this does get to be a bit of an Avengers Hamlet for a while.  I don't even have a Horatio to be left alive at the end.

Finally, I've revisited the amnesia trope with this fic, because really, I do love amnesia fics.  While Tony doesn't have his memories, he does have a strange knack for quoting literature that is eventually explained.  There are also a lot of other strange things that take a while for explanations to come, but I promise there is some sort of method to the madness.  At least, if there isn't, I should hope Nar will point it out to me before I post more...

Without further ado, I'll let you guys get started reading if I haven't scared you away yet.


He woke with a start to complete darkness. And complete darkness? Totally panic inducing for reasons he couldn't fathom. )
