Imagine a lazy Saturday afternoon where there are no explosions or pranks or flashbacks or nightmares. Everyone’s in the living room, lazing about and listening to 40s big band music. Steve falls asleep with his head in Bucky’s lap. Natasha reads a book while Clint gives her a foot rub. Tony plays Bejeweled on Zen mode with the sound off, Bruce just closes his eyes and relaxes a bit. Thor sits and enjoys the music. Sam takes a nap. Everything’s quiet and simple and lovely and calm.
For better or worse, Tony Stark has devised a plan that won’t require him to put on the Iron Man suit anymore, and should allow Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and the Hulk to get some much needed R&R as well. His solution is Ultron, self-aware, self-teaching, artificial intelligence designed to help assess threats, and direct Stark’s Iron Legion of drones to battle evildoers instead.
The only problem? Ultron lacks the human touch, and his superior intellect quickly determines that life on Earth would go a lot smoother if he just got rid of Public Enemy No. 1: Human beings.

FUCK YES. I LIKE THIS. YES. CHARACTER CONTINUITY, YAY!
(Although dude, did you fall asleep on top of your keyboard and enter a lot of unfortunate keysmash or something? You never had this problem with Jarvis.)
Also PHEW, there really IS (still) an Iron Legion (again), that means I really didn’t butcher Tony’s post-IM3 situation as much as I worried I might have in that one fic I wrote.
sorry y’all, I want an MCU civil war so bad I can taste it through toothpaste
it doesn’t have to be mutants, you just shift it into surveillance state, Tony for, Steve against, and I’m there, I’m golden, wrap me in the football-field long blanket of contempt Steve Rogers has for Tony Stark and leave me for dead.

So everyone talks about Steve being able to wield Mjolnir and that’s cool and all, but a lot of people forget that Clint, in the comics, is one of the few people who can properly use Steve’s shield.
So…yes. Steve holds his hand out and accidentally catches Mjolnir and meanwhile Clint’s out of arrows and the shield lands near him so he just kind of says “fuck it” and picks up the shield and starts throwing it. And Thor kind of shrugs and just grabs the nearest thing to use as a weapon. Maybe tosses one of the bad guys at the other bad guys. Maybe tosses Tony at the bad guys. Something.
And later they all agree that was pretty fun.
It’s always fun to use Tony as a blunt instrument.
