    (Three humans and an A.I in space, the alien friendships they make along the way, and discovering how science and magic might coexist in a universe where they can be one and the same.)

    Summary

    Tony Stark would have to die. Doctor Stephen Strange had thought that it was the only way. But Thanos' utter stupidity forces a higher being to step in, and Stephen has the dubious honor of being their instrument. They have met before, after all.

    Summary

    chronoclasm:

    From Ancient Greek χρόνος (khrónos, “time”), and κλάστης (klástēs, “a person who breaks something”); from κλάω (kláō, “break”)

    Noun:-
    1. The intentional destruction of clocks and other time artifacts
    2. The desire to crush the prevailing sense of time, due to a conflict regarding the fixation of linear time in a community

    3. (science fiction) An interference with the course of history caused by time travel.


    Or, no one said anything about Stark's overprotective doctor. It's a thing. They're a thing.

    Summary

    Strange didn’t even want to be married to him, but the implication that he was anything less than a perfectly desirable partner and suddenly he was offended. “I’m a fantastic catch. If anyone was going to be the weak link in this marriage it wouldn’t be me.”

    Now Tony was the one offended; him, the weak link? How dare. “Excuse you. I’d be a devoted partner. Devoted. You wouldn’t know what hit you. You’d feel absolutely cherished.” Yes, Tony had a lot of faults, but lack of dedication to a partner, when he actually had a partner—which, admittedly, had been rare—was not one of them.

    “Oh good,” Wong said, hanging up the phone and handing it back to Tony. “You two can be a wonderful, devoted couple for the next year.” He clapped his hands together with a sense of dooming finality. “Congratulations on the marriage.”

    Summary

    “No.” Tony shook his head, heart beating wild and rapid, the monitors he was hooked up to a cacophony of sound. “You might have missed it, Strange, but last time I tried to prepare the world for what was coming, half the universe died. Why me?” Why not someone else, why not Steve fucking Rogers, the man with the plan, why not Rhodey, why not Pepper, why him?

    “Because you’re a scientist. A futurist. We chose you, Stark. But you have to accept.”

    Tony didn’t want to.

    “You’re going to regret it,” Tony said quietly. The beeping of the monitors had slowed, the panic had faded away leaving only a quiet exhaustion.

    “I don’t think so.” And Strange sounded so sure.

    Tony closed his eyes. He wanted to say no, wanted to let go of the weight of the world that had already crushed him. But he couldn’t do that. Couldn’t do that when Strange had used his last chance to save the world, banking on him. “Alright.” He swallowed hard, forcing himself to nod. “Okay. Send me back.”
