Title: The life and woes of Mister Anthony Edward Stark, Inventor Extraordinare
Genre: Alternate Universe, Regency Au (Historical AU also, because I invent my own history)
Warnings: Characters deaths, blood, kidnapping, drug use, child abuse
Word Count: ~17 500
Summary: The story in which there are robots who are not imaginary, a whole mass of steams and tumblers, and a lot of useless cravats. Alternatively this is a story in which Anthony Stark grows from wannabe mechanic into an inventor extraordinary, finds a group of friends along the way and is maybe a little miffed for this whole arranged marriage business.

Author's note: It's my fill for avengers_bang that is very, very, very late. I apologize for this and bow in shame with a lot of excuses, but aware that it was mostly poor time management on my part. Beta read by the lovely scrapbullet who did it at the last minute and saved me humiliation of posting the fic full of typos and stuff. I will never thank her enough for that. I plan to revisit the verse, maybe write an epilogue and some ficlets, but I cannot say when it will be. I just really wanted to finally post it. There's an Art to that by the wonderful stalkerbunny at which I cannot marvel enough, so be sure if you read, go and leave a comment there too.
