Pairing: Pepper Potts/Tony Stark
Fic Title: Supply and Demand
Why This Must Be Read: Tony Stark is such a powerful and overconfident individual that it's not news to say he's at his most interesting when he's powerless. This one-shot, which follows him through the Year That Wasn't, considers what Tony (and not so much Iron Man) could do in the face of an enemy he can't defeat. It's more gen than het, admittedly, but Pepper stays in the thick of things, and Martha Jones is at her best here. Regardless of how things did or didn't go down on the Valiant, I'm pretty sure this is just what happened in between.
