Tony Stark was your best friend, and the man you were hopelessly in love with.
You didn’t know when your feelings for him started to change during the many years of knowing him, but you suspected the slow change started on the day you first met him.
You were enthralled in the painting in front of you admiring the fact that despite the bleak and scarred background littered with remnants of a dead war, the entwined couple remained together through it all.
You didn’t know how long you had been standing there, fully immersed in the painting, until a man spoke up. “Huh. A bit over the top.”
Dressed in a grey suit, the man eyed the painting a bit longer and then turned to you, waiting for your reply. “You don’t like it?” you asked.
He smirked, brown eyes sparkling in the light. “Oh, I love it.” He gestured towards the couples passionate embrace. “But everything else? Not so much.”
You shrugged. “Sure, it’s a bit sharp on the eyes, but there’s something about it…” you trailed off, trying to find the words.
“It speaks to your inner hopeless romantic?” He asked and raised an eyebrow at you. “I suppose one day you want something like this? An all consuming perfect love, too caught up in each other to notice the world going to hell?”
“No. Love is not perfect and that’s okay. If you look closer, there are subtle hints in the painting that show they survived something horrible.” You pointed to the many hints scattered in the background. “And in the end, they’re still together.”
