MCU / Iron Man: "The Kids Aren't All Right" by Christine Everhart (vanityfair.com), by samdonne

FANDOM: MCU / Iron Man
FIC LINK: "The Kids Aren't All Right" by Christine Everhart (vanityfair.com)
AUTHOR LINK: [personal profile] samdonne
RATING/WARNING(S): G
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 11,500
MAIN CHARACTERS: Tony Stark, Christine Everhart

FIC SUMMARY: It’s been 'a hell of a year' since industrialist Tony Stark owned up to his alter ego in a move that stunned observers and longtime aides alike. With the US facing unprecedented homegrown suicide attacks, Iron Man's contribution to national security is more than ever under scrutiny. As she follows Stark during a year of crisis, exclusively for Vanity Fair, Christine Everhart explores the many contradictions of the man behind the mask, uncovers tales of personal loyalty, patriotism gone awry and corporate betrayal, and asks whether Iron Man is the embodiment of an outdated American fantasy—a self-made, unilateral, technological solution to hopelessly complex problems—and whether he can survive the violent encounter with reality.

RECCER'S NOTES: A mock Vanity Fair article on Iron Man. This is one of those fics that everyone must have surely read by now, but I have a grand total of six K titles in my faves list, so... Not that it doesn't deserve the publicity, because there's a small chance you haven't read this yet and if this is the case you should do so, immediately. It's that rare thing, a fic that really makes you stop and think, and then keep thinking long after you've finished reading. Plus! Photos, formatting, and a magazine writing style that makes me wibble.
