Sic Transit Gloria Mundi (Marvel 1602, Steve/Tony)

Fandom: Marvel 1602 (Marvel, Iron Man Movies)
Characters & Pairings: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Pepper Potts, Nick Fury, Clea Strange, Virginia Dare, Rojhaz
Rating: Mature
Word Count: 12,000
Summary: Two days after his spies reported that Anthony Stark had returned to England—battered, they told him, but alive—Sir Nicholas Fury rode to Deptford.
Warnings for colonialism, imperialism, the Age of Discovery, Renaissance European—primarily English—views on race, gender, sexuality, exploration, and religion, and 1602's Captain America. Less serious warnings for William Shakespeare, and rather dubious science, geography, mythology, and history.

Thanks to the crack team (especially epershand, Aria, newredshoes, Gigs, and Marina), and my father, who, when asked, "but what would Tony Stark have been doing in 1602?" said, "East India Company?"
