Story Title: The Lost and the Wretched

Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Link(s): Story on AO3 / Art by MassiveSpaceWren on tumblr

Summary: After his reanimation, Tony has yet to find a reason to continue his existence that isn’t hatred or bitterness. After decades of captivity in Arcadia, Steve doesn’t know if he even has a soul anymore. When the vampires of the Covenant of the Shield organize a mission to rescue Steve, it is a new beginning for both of them.

Warnings: No standard warnings apply, but in this AU, Tony is Frankenstein’s (well, Yinsen’s) monster, as in, literally made of spare body parts, and some related gory imagery appears in the story.

Characters: Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Nick Fury, Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton, Bruce Banner, Thor, Loki

Pairings: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark

When I Started: I wrote the first chapter as a fill for the Captain America/Iron Man bingo in January 2016. I already had an outline in mind for a longer story then, but I knew it'd be beyond the scope of the bingo. I estimated it'd be around 50k, and I really wanted to write it…

How I Lost My Shit: …I really wanted to write the whole long story, but there was always something else to do, some challenge to work on, and I had neither the time nor the motivation to finish this. I prodded at it every now and then and made some progress, but not enough. I mentally labeled it the Epic WIP of Despair. At one point, I started posting it as a WIP, which I usually never do, hoping that'd give me the motivation to finally finish it, but that didn't work either, since the reader response was lukewarm at best.

How I Finished My Shit: Since I'd already tried a lot of other things with no luck, I signed up for WIP BB. Deadlines are a great motivator for me, and that was also true this time. Although I worried about schedules a lot, I did, in the end, manage to finish the thing, even though it became even longer than I'd first planned. In fact, at 58k, it's now the longest story I've written in my life! And Wren did a pretty sad franken!Tony art for me! <3 I'm so glad I signed up! :)
