OOOH boy this is dark.
It's basically revisiting the darkness of the Suzuha ending if you've played/watched the Visual Novel as opposed to the anime.
I'm actually kind of scared as this already got super dark and there's people listed for future fic that would just break me even more and.
This is as soul-crushing as that one Silent Hill Sherlock fic.

Summary: Faith knows why Xander has issues dealing with her even if no one else does.  And she's not willing to just sit there as the others talk about things they don't know.
Word Count: 336
Rating: Teen, placed under cut because it references one of the canon instances of BTVS non-con, Consequences.  The actual discussion takes place offscreen.

Summary: Faith knows why Xander has issues dealing with her even if no one else does. 
Word Count: 336
Rating: Teen, placed under cut because it references one of the canon instances of BTVS non-con, Consequences.  I've only read people talk about it a few places (as opposed to Spike's attempt), but Xander's never gotten over it (he was always a lot quieter in S7 when Faith was in the room) and Faith...Faith really is working on being a hero, which is exactly why she can't let this go.  (There's a whole lot but there's one blog that goes through everything, and there's an entry for every episode with consent issues-this is the one for Consequences.  I'm not sure I'd recommend it, given its subject matter, but it is well written and points out everyone and wow Buffy is a lot more problematic as a show than you realize on first viewing.)

Summary: Pepper and Obie are enough to overrule Tony's desire to avoid the doctor following the events in Afghanistan.
Word Count: 1379
Rating: Gen, brief mention (at the beginning) of possible sexual assault (avoided in March of the Iron Maiden in which the threat was there but wasn't actually followed through on), thought I'd mention anyway so readers can make an informed decision

And this is why I didn't want to post this on Easter.  Easter should have happy, light, and fun.  None of which this is.  Well, maybe fun, figuring out how Tony was going to deal with the situation because she's awesome, and conversation between her and Yinsen, but.  Still.  And I didn't want to cheapen it.

Main Points:
Iron Man Genderbend (Iron Maiden)
Summary: The Ten Rings want something from Tony she isn't willing to give.  She calls their bluff.
Word Count: 434
Rating: Gen
Warning: Technically, nothing actually happens in this fic.  That being said, it's a female Tony in a cave full of terrorists with questionable morals.  (Partly, it's an answer to surfing through Ao3 and finding that most of the versions of female Tony have gone through sexual assault.  This Iron Maiden isn't going to just smile and go along with it and engineers her way out of the situation like she does everything else, so nothing actually happens; however I was slightly uncomfortable writing this so it might be problematic for others. 
Tl;dr: read at your own discretion.)

This doesn't feel completely finished, to me, but there are some really neat parts.  Well.  'Neat' may not be the right word for it, but I appreciate the fact that I somehow managed to make it feel like subtle despair.  That's what I was going for and it wasn't quite easy to write.
Don't worry, lighter days are coming, but this was crucial to future!Xander, so crushing, crushing angst.

I have a lot of feelings about this episode, okay?  Because 90% of the people blame Xander for it.  They just seem to see it as Xander not manning up, but they ignore the whole vision thing.  It might have been a little while since I've seen it, but I seem to remember that the episode wasn't even declarative on whether or not that vision was fake or not (and even if it was fake, it was a very real possibility at least to Xander!)
Xander saw himself become his father.  An abusive, drunken bastard, broken and hurting and hurting everyone else, too.  So he made the decision to prevent that future, even if it kills him, even if it hurts Anya, because it will protect her in the long run.
Xander, like Tony, will sacrifice himself, because, let's get real, despite anything he might say he doesn't see himself as being worthwhile or worth anything.  Probably due to his family.  But there's some of Cap's old-fashioned heroism in there, too.  He can't watch people suffer, can't just stand on the sidelines.  (Then again, realistic!MCU!soldier-with-PTSD Cap also has self-esteem issues.  For both Tony and Steve it boils down to: I am a soldier, I am a weapon, better me than them, they deserve to live, and, under their breath, I don't.)
Xander's desire to protect the ones he loves at any cost just gets magnified when coupled with the issues of several different Tony Starks, and as many things in their lives it goes boom.

As might be expected given the subject matter, trigger warning and read more are given.
A note to anyone who might be suffering depression: I care.  No, I don't know you personally, but I'm one of those people who chooses to still believe in humanity, in people.  The thought that anyone might choose to leave this beautiful thing we call life is tragic.  If you're not getting any support where you are--try something new.  Try to find at least one person who likes you for who you are in real life.  I guarantee, with so many humans on this planet, you'll find one.  Though it might take a while.  Because, if you're depressed, that's what you're maybe missing.  Or talk to a psychologist.  If they're stupid, find a new one.  They're paid to help you.  There are so many things out there for you, to support you, and all you have to do is talk.  We never know how many lives we touch, and once we're dead, well.  Maybe as ghosts or something else we can see, but I guarantee you you're underestimating how many people won't realize how much they cared until they get a wake up call.  Please let it be a conversation, rather than a funeral.
I'm not a psychologist and I don't know if my words help, but I hope they do.

Summary of the above: Clearly the suicide prevention things in schools are not doing a good enough job.  Take it seriously, folks, it might save a life.  Try to help.  Don't belittle or make fun, because these are, or could be, life and death situations.  I know this is the internet, but the mask of anonymity does not absolve you of responsibility.  http://www.helpguide.org/articles/suicide-prevention/suicide-prevention-helping-someone-who-is-suicidal.htm

This kind of issue somewhat bugs me, but then Xander just kind of took it and ran with it.  And said muse kind of had some good, quotable points, so I thought I'd share it.  This could probably be a thing anywhere there's a mature, self-aware Xander, though it was written by the Shadowed Suspicion version in mind.  (This was prompted by the 'yell at McGee' thing, which.  Yes, actually, Kate, if you're working on a computer placed under the desk, you kind of have to be under the desk, and okay, maybe I'm super paranoid, but I would super notice if someone was under my desk before anyone even had the opportunity to see up my skirt.  Well, not that I'd be wearing a skirt, but if I did, I'd wear it proud and point is I'd super notice that someone was under my desk before I sat down.)
One of my favorite sane feminists was a girl in our class who brings in her knitting to her gender studies class.  It apparently drives the rabid feminists insane, and the statement is just 'well, if I want to go do archery, I'll do that, but right now, I want to knit, and nothing will stop me'.  People should be able to do what they want (within, well, sane limits, like murder's out of the question and stuff) without being judged.
Cut because it's somewhat long, and, well, you kind of can't talk about feminism stuff without talking about some stuff that might require a trigger warning.  It's brief, but I thought I'd give a head's up.


“What’s up with this ‘men are from Mars, women are from Venus’ stuff?  Last thing I checked, all humans were from Earth.”
