mizzy: (avengers: tony)

Artist: [livejournal.com profile] petite_madame

Author: faviconMizzy / [livejournal.com profile] mizzy2k
Fic Title: Even the Light is an Illusion
Pairing(s): Steve/Tony
Rating: T
Universe: MCU (with an infusion of 616)
Word Count: ~102,000
Warnings: Faked major character death, minor character deaths.
Summary:
Death threats are an unfortunate side-effect of being Tony Stark, so he's learned to ignore them. Trouble is, when someone really wants you dead, hiding your head in the sand just kinda exposes your ass. 

But it's not just Tony's behind on the line. Whoever wants him dead wants him to suffer first, and they're willing to do anything to make that happen. Tony knows there's only one way out. To save Steve, the Avengers, and the general public, Tony has to die. Of course, death isn't always the end, and Tony does what any other self-disrespecting scientist would do: he finds a way to fake his death and avenge his own murder.

The trouble is, terrible decisions usually have a terrible price, and this one is no different. Tony has a chance to save the day, but the cost may be more than Tony was ever expecting to pay…

Even the light is an illusion,
for when it stops I'll cease to be.
Then, in the darkness for countless hours,
I can move around freely
exactly as how you like.

Kanon Wakeshima - Maboroshi

Notes:
Thank you to:

[livejournal.com profile] petite_madame, your art kept me going on and on. I've pushed myself farther than I thought I could go, and it was all due to you. I still keep pinching myself that I was assigned to someone who creates such beautiful art - and who kept producing even more things which made my jaw drop and stomach swoop in the best possible way. ♥

[livejournal.com profile] immoral_crow, who is the best beta and cheerleader the world has ever known. I don't deserve you, bb; this one's definitely for you.

[livejournal.com profile] theron09, who is also a tremendous beta and cheerleader and all around wonderful person. I DON'T DESERVE YOU EITHER. You kept me from hating this to pieces. 

[livejournal.com profile] tresmaxwell, who ameripicked part-i in a truly horrendous time crunch, and didn't turn down the challenge even when I asked her for help in slightly gibbering manner (there are moments where one can retain dignity, and there are moments that are hopeless to the dignity cause, and that request was not one of my finest moments) and is thus an amazing star. Any Britishisms that remain in part ii are entirely my fault (although I think I took out all the cupboards, America, y u no have cupboards??).

[livejournal.com profile] telaryn who provided last minute summary help and provided a shoulder to weep on

the [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb mods who didn't lock me away when I admitted I'd accidentally 100k in a month,

Kanon Wakeshima, who inspired me with her song maboroshi and provides me with most of my Avengers fic titles, 

[livejournal.com profile] crazybangs, you know what y'all enablers did, 

and [livejournal.com profile] kiyala, who enabled this to begin with, and thus can be saddled with all the blame. ♥

Also thank you to everyone on twitter who cheered me on when I hit the slow patches. :)

And thank you if you read it! And thank you if you go check out the art.

Because the art? IS ABOUT THE BEST THING EVER.

EVER.


EVER.
