Woah!

How have I missed this excellent crossover!

Ok you are epic. I loved this story all the way through. sorry if you don't see any reviews/ much of them from me. I tend to download these on my kindle to read. I love how you treated the characters fair and called out their idiotic moments. Caitlin is my most hated character in the series tv or book. Her attitude got so many people killed. I am glad Eddard took over and now knows how to play the game. I liked Sansa and all but I didn't think she deserved the crown at all. I love your version of Tony and the gang. I also got chills because your hints at Medieval Avengers got me eager to finish this series. I love how you adapted the story so far so nothing seems out of place. moving on to book 2 for now.

One of the things I love about the show, more so than the books, are the small-council scenes. We only ever see those the tough the eyes of Ned, who doesn’t see the intricacies or most of the politics, and Tyrion. The scenes with Varys and Baelish are only in the show, because neither of them are POV characters.

No Tony... He really should have just killed him. He’s going to live to regret that so much.
A first battle chapter well done. Congrats. A lot of people fuck up their first battles.

You’re probably having the same problem with reviews as we are and can’t answer, but I’m going to type this anyway.
I love this chapter. I really love it. You’ve done such a good job of getting in Arya’s headspace it’s uncanny. A lot of GoT stories I’ve read just treat Arya the same way they would treat a male character and it’s just really annoying.

But more importantly: Mutants! My husband really has done a good job of not spoiling this for me (which is rather impressive tbh), because I had no idea that was coming. Syrio is a Brotherhood spy right? Because that speech was very Magneto. And Arya has the X-Gene. That’s going to be fun.
A question though, you said the story will follow the MCU mostly, does that mean the X movies will be followed as well, or will the story for that be more original?

Great work!

Are there ideas writing fic based on pepperony?

This one hell of a chapter. Very, very well done. The Tywin POV was perfectly written, the entrance of Iron Man was sleek, but his lack of combat experience showed. And I really liked how you managed to do the famous line at the end: “I am Iron Man.”
On Tywin’s contemplations, I agree. Ned being kind would have changed things drastically indeed. Especially for Jon. I think Ned and Tywin, while they would never like each other, would grow to respect one another.
The dynamic reminds me a little bit of how the relationship between President Bartlet and his chief of staff Leo McGary from the West Wing. Ned is the leader - the ideological, honourable figure who you can trust to make decisions; while Tywin is the chief of staff - who understands politics and the back room deals and isn’t afraid to compromise to get things done. A good leadership needs both. An advisor to temper the morals of the leader, and a ruler to direct the advisor to the best path.
Just my thoughts,
Miracle.

The Iron Man is born!
A question; do you have any particular science in mind for explaining the Sunstones? It’s perfectly valid not to, or for it just to be magic. Some authors do it, others don’t.
Finally, on dialogue and breaks. There were a couple of sentences of dialogue in this chapter were a bit hard to read because you broke the dialogue to include an action or tag, then resumed the dialogue in the same paragraph, then repeated. A good rule of thumb when inserting breaks in large blocks of dialogue is to only use one before starting a new paragraph. Likewise, you can break long sections of dialogue, like the speech in this chapter, into smaller paragraphs without closing the dialogue tags. It just makes things easier for the eye to follow is all.
Regards, Miracle.

Tyrion should write a book. Imagine if the entirety of Game of Thrones were written by Tyrion. It would be like Percy Jackson’s internal monologue, but with a fuck tonne more swearing. Also porn jokes.
Sorry I dropped off the radar; remote exams suck. But I am back now, and the next month is going to be full of writing and reading.
As an aside, did you find any Spider-Man/Spider-Gwen stories that you liked?
Regards, Miracle.

That was the powerful, though. They thought they owned those under them. That was what Joffrey had thought when Sandor had made it clear he would be standing watch over Sansa Stark's body as it lay in state within the Red Keep. The boy had turned crimson and snarled that he wasn't allowed to, that he was to protect his king… and then Sandor had moved towards him, climbing the steps to the Iron Throne and causing the boy to lean back until the back of his blonde little head had scrapped against one of the blades that made up the ugly ass chair. He'd looked down upon him, Joffrey's ear and half his face still swaddled in linen as Pycelle desperately tried to repair the damage the Iron Man had done, and told the king he was watching over the girl. The boy had finally gotten the sense to nod and Sandor had left him to spill his blood and, if Sandor's nose was right, piss all over the damn throne.

"Fucking idiots, the lot of them," he muttered to Sansa's cold body. The Silent Sisters had done their best to make her look beautiful and perfect. To undo what Joffrey had done to her in his rage, like a mother mending a broken doll for their spoiled child. She'd wanted her life to be a fairytale and now she looked like a princess under some bewitchment with only a knight of the Kingsguard to stand watch over her within the dark and quiet of a magical castle. Of course she wasn't under some spell. She was dead. Her skull smashed in by their idiot king during a tantrum. Her blood and brains had leaked onto the steps of Baelor's Sept in front of all of King's Landing. She wasn't in some beautiful castle but in the Red Keep, built by a monster who murdered those who had made it so he'd be the only one to know its secrets. And the knight standing over her was a butcher who was only a member of the Kingsguard because there was no one else in the Capital who wanted the damn job.

Oooooh!

And Sansa body possessed! O.o well, corpse possessed. Drama!

No, he just likes to copy me," Fury grunted. "Even has a pretty little line too, from what I hear. "The last time I trusted someone I lost an eye". Bloody mummer."

Varys chuckled before growing serious. "Eddard Stark lives. It was a close call... Joffrey nearly had his head."

"Shit," Fury grunted. "That would have been a death blow. How did you manage to save him?"

"I wish I could claim responsibility but it was our dear Iron Man who saved the day."

"Which one?" Fury asked, crossing his arms over his chest. "Antony or Jon?"

"Antony, though I hear now that the newly named Jon Stark has been given his own armor and goes by the name Centurion."

"Two flying knights," Fury rumbled. "Joyous."

"Isn't it?" Varys teased, knowing for Fury it was anything but. "What does the council say?"

Fury let out a sigh at that, his lips forming a thin line so that he resembled his eldest brother in Varys' eyes... though he'd never tell Fury that. "They think it is just an aberration. A chance occurrence. There was some talk of me making contact... one ever suggested I just sneak into his house and surprise him in the middle of the night. Give the whole speech, 'You've just entered into a bigger universe... you just don't know it yet.' "

"Hmm, I remember it being a bit more... grand... when you used it to recruit me." Fury chuckled at that. "So the council isn't concerned. And you?" Varys pressed.

Fury was silent for a long period. "I think... that it is the heralding of a new age."

Varys swallowed at that. "One of minor note... or the one we have all feared?"

"We've feared," Fury stated. He shut his good eye for a moment, gathering himself. "I've been North of the Wall, old friend. I've seen them. They've awakened"

Varys suddenly felt very warm... and very cold.

"Have you..." he hated how his voice broke when he spoke and he cleared his throat in an attempt to steady himself. "Has the Court awakened?"

"...I don't know," Fury admitted. Varys licked his lips, knowing that if there was one thing Fury hated it was not knowing something. The man was cautious to near paranoia. "But what I do know, what I feel in my bones... is that Antony Stark is a part of this."

Intriguing!

And Dany is now both mother of dragons AND Firestar?! I didn’t see that coming, her a mutant now too.

Ned safe, and he tells Jon the truth.

Oh and he lets Cat have it good, which she deserves.
6/22/2020 c30 Vanessa Masters
So finally, Tyrion gets recognition form his father as being more competent than his siblings and even to be left his fathers lands. It’s unbelievable, but these are increasingly changing times. So, he goes to kings landing, and hopefully he gets some respect.

Joffrey looked about wildly, as if the mere fact that what he wanted had not come to pass had broken his brain like a tossed about child's toy. He turned to the Small Council but seeing none move to aid him he gestured wildly at the crowd. "What are you waiting for? Kill him! Take him! Your king commands it!"

"And what a king," Iron Man said snidely. "Refuses to listen to the council of his elders. Shows disgrace for a woman he calls his lady. Denies mercy to those that admit their mistakes and who their father loved as a brother. And now demands his subjects do what he is too cowardly to do." Antony scoffed. "Oh… the songs they will sing of you."

"You dare?" Joffrey hissed.

"Yeah yeah, I dare," Antony said, getting tired of Joffrey's whines. "You thought I would stand there and let them hack me down? Kid… you've got a lot to learn." He held up his hands, magic crackling along his palms. "Starting with when to push a battle… and when to retreat." Joffrey looked ready to begin screaming again but, finally, some sense came to the Small Council and Cersei stepped forward, grabbing his arm and tugging him away.

"You… have declared war on the Seven Kingdoms," Pycelle told Antony, stammering in shock at the notion.

"No," Iron Man said, "just its king. What happens to Westeros depends on how long they let the little shit sit on the throne." Ned watched as the mystical energy in Antony's left gauntlet faded and his cousin pointed at a pale-faced Sansa while keeping his right training on Joffrey. "My lady? If you would come here? It's time for you and your father to go home."

Sansa stood frozen in place and Ned feared for a second she would refuse, choosing instead to remain and live out the princess fantasy that she'd been telling herself since she was a babe. But then the moment was shattered and Sansa hurriedly lifted her dress so she might rush to them. Ned heard Antony let out a sigh of relief, a bit of tension leaving his shoulders, while the crowd watched on like an audience at a mummer's performance. And that is what it felt like: the noble hero, betrayed after his moment of sacrifice, making it mean nothing, only for the being of magic to appear and save the day. But it wasn't a play. This was real and Ned swallowed again, his body shaking slightly as it dawned on him that, finally, the nightmare was over. They were going home.

And then Joffrey grabbed Sansa's arm.

"No!" he snarled, eyes blazing with madness. "You aren't going anywhere."

"Let me go!" Sansa cried out, struggling against his grip. But Joffrey only held on tighter, his knuckles going white as he bruised her arm. "You're hurting me!"

"You're mine! My lady! You don't get to leave!" Joffrey screamed, shaking her hard.

"You were going to kill my father!" Sansa shouted, fighting to break free.

"You are mine to do with as I wish!" Joffrey roared.

Sansa paused and stared at him before she growled, "I was never yours!"

Noooo! I’m crying! Sansa!

But Ned is alive...and Cersi lost her hand, a fitting punishment and Joffrey is mutilated on the face.

"You think you can wipe the Starks out?" the Centurion said, standing up. He looked over at the Iron Man and, after getting the slightest of nods, reached up and removed the faceplate of helm. "You've done a poor job of it so far."

"The bastard," Gregor hissed, staring at the boy's face.

"You know," Iron Man said, rising in the air, hovering over just the edge of the pit as he reached up and removed his faceplate as well, "I really hate that word."

And Damn! What a violent, gory end, fitting of the mountain.
