The King and the Dragon
By: Memory Dragon
Disclaimer: I do not own the Avengers movie-verse, nor do I make any claim to.
Characters: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Rhodey, Natasha Romanov, Pepper Potts, Bruce Banner
Warnings: Major Character death is the big one on this fic, and you can check the end notes if you're squeamish and want some spoilers.  It does have a happy ending though, and I promise only those characters in the end notes die no matter what else the fic makes you think.  Some dubious consented body changes (he agreed, but didn't realize all of what he was agreeing to), but no maiming or anything like that.  Fair warning that I took a lot of inspiration from Clamp, and I hope I did them proud.
Rating: PG 13
Summary: After a big fight with Tony, Steve has gone missing. The last thing Tony needs when he should be looking for the leader of the Avengers is to be transported into a dark fairy tale to fight a dragon with a kingly version of Steve. But there are things that the King isn't telling him, and the dragon's eye is a familiar shade of blue...
Thanks:  Many thanks to Narwhale_callin for betaing and Salmastyron for double checking my 616 facts. Also a great many thanks to my two extremely talented artists, neera_pendragon and fictionforlife! They've been amazing to work with, and I'm so lucky to be paired with two such amazing artists this year!
Notes: This fic came about because someone told me that I couldn't do worse than the Unicorn in Untameable, then threw my own prompt about Steve and Tony raising a baby dragon back at me.  And, well, I'm never one to back down from a challenge.  I have it on good authority this is way worse than the Unicorn.  XD  Also, it has been a life-long dream of mine to be as sadistic as Clamp.  I like to think I made a decent attempt with this fic.  I'm not sorry.  At all.

Most importantly, this fic was written for the cap_ironman 2014 Big Bang. As stated above, I had the great pleasure of working with two very awesome artists. Please make sure to check out the art they did for this fic, because it's fantastic! You can find fictionforlife's work here 1 2 3 4, and a master post here on tumblr. (3 and 4 are slightly spoiler-y), and neera_pendragon's here on ao3 and 1 2 3 on tumblr!
A small note about Tony's phrasing: Shakespeare and the medieval period are two completely different time periods.  Please do not believe Tony.  You have no idea how incredibly painful it was for me to write that part, but it's a very Tony thing for him to say, so I went with it.  The things I do for characterization.  Bad Tony!  Get your time periods right!
