Once they arrived back at the Tower Friday released him on the Iron Man disassembly platform. “Thanks Fri.”
“Anything thing for you boss.” Tony grinned at his baby girl’s success. Fury was going to be pissed but honestly the genius couldn’t give two shits.
5 minutes later he was in the kitchen attempting to put something together to eat when a strong smell of Chinese food came from his far right. Turning around he saw Bruce standing in his lab coat with a brown paper bag clutched in his arms. “Come willingly and I’ll feed you.”
“Oh Brucie I’d do anything for you…” Bruce just grinned at him and gestured him closer. “By any chance did you happen to order me some lo mien?”
“I always knew you were my favorite.”
So for the next two hours Bruce was able to get Tony’s help on an experiment before he was stolen right from under his nose.
He wanted to blame Rhodes for being a sneaky fucker but he always did get a little tunnel vision when it came to his experiments.
It went a little like this….
Bruce was looking over some data points while Tony jotted down a few equations on a board across the room.
The billionaires phone buzzed, “Rhodey said he’s got a surprise for me but I only get it if I come now. You good if I leave?”
Bruce grunts, Tony leaves.
With Rhodey, “Damn Tones, what did you get yourself into this time?”
“I have no idea and it wasn’t even my fault!”
Tony was currently checking himself out in his bedroom mirror. Rhodey found him a cool new Iron Man t-shirt that he knew Tony would love. Which the genius did.
“Poor baby, should I take you to get coffee?”
“Um hell yes. What kind of question is that? Let’s go.”
They were walking down the street when the crowd around them started getting a little more rowdier than they already were.
“Man of Iron! I have come to claim you as my prize!” Swooping down Thor looped an arm around Tony before taking off.
“DAMNIT THOR!” Tony and Rhodey shouted at once.
It took Tony a few seconds of clinging to the ridiculous Demi-god before he had a realization. “I didn’t get my coffee!!”
stop erasing Rhodey because he’s inconvenient for your ship. fun fact; friendship doesn’t get in the way of romance. people need friends too. otherwise it’s one really fucking obsessive relationship.
stop making him the villain in your story in order for your ship to work. if you honestly have to turn one of the greatest heroes and greatest people of Marvel into a villain to make your ship work, well. I just feel really sorry for your ship. and I honestly don’t know if that ship was ever even meant to work.
stop erasing Rhodey because of his skin color. he is so much more than his ethnicity.
stop erasing Rhodey because Tony’s background isn’t “tragic enough” if he actually has one friend in the world. I’m sorry, but have you looked at Tony Stark? do you honestly think that a man with an ego like his, someone who is so dependent on admiration would honestly even be here anymore if Rhodey wasn’t there to help him through shit?
stop erasing Rhodey.
stop erasing Rhodey.
STOP ERASING RHODEY OR I WILL EAT YOUR HEAD.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE? WHEN I TRY TO DO THAT, TO CRAWL OUT FROM UNDER YOUR BED AND EAT YOUR HEAD, RHODEY WILL BE THERE TO GRASP MY SHOULDER, SHAKE HIS HEAD AND TELL ME IT’S NOT WORTH IT BECAUSE RHODEY IS A GOOD MAN AND GOD-FUCKING-DAMNIT DON’T ERASE RHODEY.
