Summary: After Auror training, Harry is recruited for a secret project called Project Tasseract. His goal: infiltrate Stark Industries and gather as much info about the ancient magical object, last seen in the Arctic, from the data the Stark Research team posted there is sending back to HQ. He just never expected to end up saving Tony Stark's heart along the way. Slash HP/TS Mpreg.
Change Log: The summary has been changed. The chapters have been changed a little.
Before starting the lecture of this story, please note the following things:
- This fic will only be from Harry's Point of View. This will make storytelling easier and more interesting if you didn't know other people's motives.
- I do not own any of the characters mentioned below. This is a piece of fiction and should not, in any way, be taken as fact.
- This piece of fanfiction takes place during the second Ironman Movie before Tony discovers the atom that saves his life.
- Please also note that I have taken some liberties with the timeline as well as the locations of some buildings. For example, the Stark Industries HQ is supposed to be in Los Angelos, California, but in order to fit the plot, that Stark Industries has a building in Malibu.
- This is an Alternative Universe Fiction.
"Mr. Potter," Kingsley started once Harry had settled down in one of the numerous chairs facing his desk, "Or should I say Auror Potter; graduated top of your class I see; Congratulations, not that I'm surprised."
Despite the sense of unease that was still causing a knot in the pit of his stomach, Harry couldn't help but smile at the reminder of his achievements. Being top of the class during Auror training was different then being top of the class at Hogwarts; for one thing, it was much more difficult considering how during their Hogwarts days, not all students applied themselves to their studies as diligently as Hermione, but during Auror training, everyone threw 100% of their being in to succeeding. Graduating with honors meant you actually had natural talent for the sort of work Aurors are asked to do, and Harry couldn't help preening a little that he has finally succeeded in something that has nothing to do with his title as boy-who-lived.
"Thank you, sir," he said, feeling elated and cheerful, "But I couldn't have done it without all those wonderful tips you have given me."
Kingsley dismissed the idea with a wave of his hand.
"Those tips are nothing," he replied, "I gave them to everyone of you before training started."
Harry didn't know how to reply to that, but luckily before he could say more, Kingsley's expression turned serious as he leaned forward, forearms now resting on the desktop. His gaze was intense and unwavering, staring right at Harry, analyzing him. It took everything for Harry not to fidget under the attention.
"But Auror Potter, I'm sure that you are aware that's not what I called you here for," Kingsley finally said after a while.
Harry nodded. He may not be the brightest crayon in the box all the time, but he was naturally observant. Ron may not have seen it, but Harry knew there must be more reasons for Kingsley to ask Harry to come see him first thing in the morning then to congratulate him on his graduation.
"Yes sir," he answered, subdued, mind working a thousand miles per hours, wondering what Kingsley could want with him.
Luckily the man decided to put him out of his misery by taking out a folder from his desk drawer and handed it to Harry. The young man took it with trembling fingers; he didn't need more then the confidential stamped on the front to know that this much be his first mission.
Oh Merlin, he was finally getting his first mission. He may not know what the report entailed but he knew that things were going to change. Of course, Harry could have never predicted to which extent.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it…
Name: Harry James Potter
Mission Type: Undercover.
Mission description: Infiltrate Stark Industries for information on the Tesseract.
The Tesseract is an extremely powerful and ancient magical device that has been around for nearly 2000 years. Its true power is unknown but if it falls in to the wrong hands, chaos will follow. Our last intel about the Tesseract is that it's somewhere in the Arctic. Since the magnetic field surrounding the whole area makes it impossible for wizards and witches to enter without having their magic go haywire, the best we can do is to be informed when the muggle research team stationed there (funded by Stark Industries) finds something of value to us.
- Obtain student and work Visa from the American Ministry.
- Obtain the required credentials at Muggle Universities (authorization obtained to use memory and speed-reading potions to gain knowledge).
- Gain access to Stark Industries (Job or Internship).
Mission Level: *****
Additional notes: Do not let anyone else, including foreign ministries of magic, know about this mission.
Personal note: Auror Potter, should you choose to accept this mission, please remember that this may not be as simple as it may seem. You have been chosen because you are the only Auror with more then a passing knowledge of the Muggle world.
I do not have all the information but something tells me that we will not be the only ones looking for this artifact. Keep your guard up and do not trust easily.
