Prompt: Tony, coffee, boredom, bots and a toaster

I’m having a bad evening lmao and deleted the first draft accidentally. fml.

Absentmindedly, Tony takes a sip from the mug at the edge of his workspace.

“Sir, that was made by-” is all JARVIS manages say before Tony spits it out, coughing and spluttering.

“DUM-E, yeah I noticed, jesus-” Tony spat out, wiping his mouth with his sleeve. “DUM-E, come here!”

Whining, the ‘bot rolled over, his ‘arm’ slumped dejected. Tony rolled his his eyes at the ‘bots dramatics, and shoved the cup at him.

“Look, what have we said about motor oil?” Tony asked, raising his eyebrow. The ‘bot chirruped nonsensically, refusing to look at him. “C’mon, DUM-E, I distinctly remember having this discussion. What was it I said?”

A beep, then a whir.

“I can’t drink it. Coffee is my oil, DUM-E, I don’t need any of yours.” Tony told him sternly, handing him the cup. “Go, clean that out. Make another, JARV, keep an eye on him.”

“Of course, Sir.”

“Sir, I’m afraid there is an issue in the kitchenette.” JARVIS informs him, sounding harried, and Tony sighed as he gave up on the gauntlet. 

“What now?” he demanded, stomping over to the corner of the workshop designated the ‘kitchen’ area, and groaned. “DUM-E!” 

Cheerfully beeping, the ‘bot acknowledged him with a snap of his claw, before turning back to the sink. Which currently held a toaster. That was still plugged in. 

“DUM-E, no!” Tony yelled, jerking forward to dragged the ‘bot away from the potentially circuit-melting electric shock. “JARV, cut the power!” 

Suddenly, darkness descended on the workshop. Whirring in confusion, DUM-E twisted in Tony’s grip, and Tony rounded on the ‘bot, shaking with anger and a little fear. Rebuilding DUM-E after the attack on Malibu had left Tony overprotective of the ‘bot, and he knew it. He could just - just fix him up. He wasn’t human, not like Pep, who needed more than Tony’s expertise. 

“What the hell?” Tony asked, glaring at the ‘bot. “You know basic lab safety, DUM-E! Do not mix water and electricity!” 

After sending DUM-E to his charging station, and sorting out the mess that was the kitchenette, Tony tried to return to the gauntlet, but it wasn’t long until he was pulled away by another distraction. Namely, DUM-E knocking over his toolbox. 

“Hey, what the heck? I thought you were grounded, DUM-E?” Tony glared at the ‘bot, who stared back unrepentant. “What on earth is going on with you today?” 

“If I may, Sir.” JARVIS interjected, and Tony turned to glare at the nearest camera. “I believe DUM-E is experiencing what you would call boredom.”

Tony started. Now that he thought about it, it kind of made sense. Butterfingers was offline, as JARVIS finished debugging the newly installed code. U was working with the fabricators, and Tony was busy with the new suit. 

“Aw, baby, you don’t know what to do with yourself, do you?” Laughing, Tony wrapped an arm around the ‘bot. “I’m sorry I’ve not been paying attention to you, kiddo. Daddy’s been kind of preoccupied lately, hasn’t he?” 

And he had. Before Killian it was the suits, before the battle it was moving to New York, and now it was the Avengers taking up much of his time. Tony had been neglecting his ‘bots - all of his ‘bots - a lot recently. Privately, Tony vowed to fix that as soon as he could. 

“Right, JARV, lock down all delicate tasks.” A slight electric blue sheen threw up across the worktables, and Tony pulled out the ball from the drawer beside him. DUM-E chirped excitedly, and Tony laughed, throwing the it across the room for the ‘bot to fetch. 

Well, he wasn’t going to be able to get back to work again, anyway. 

this took far too long and did not go the way I wanted it too. oh well. hope you like it! 

Kay so.

In The Avengers, we have this moment:

Tony looks at the screens how Nick would see them and is confused by how he manages with them.  It’s little, and mostly played off as a joke.

Tony: How does Fury even see these?

Maria Hill: He turns.

Tony: Sounds exhausting.


Later, in Agents of Shield, we see Fury’s toolbox being used:

It’s a computer that basically spins around the user as needed.

You know, rather than having them turn.

Headcanon that Tony built Fury’s toolbox to make his life easier, because he might be a textbook narcissist, but he also genuinely considers the abilities of people he cares about and respects, and works to make their lives easier.


“The future,” he said, looking down at his open hands, “begins here.”

arm wrestled dum-e today. does it count as arm wrestling when his whole body is an arm? or is it just wrestling then

steve drew me, and then tony added dum-e to the sketch. nice to see them getting along.

this is just before the table snapped under us. that red stuff is blood from the nosebleed i got, and that white is when dum-e decided that spraying me down with the fire extinguisher would help with the nosebleed

it did not.

You can get Bucky’s shirt on Redbubble!

Tony Stark is the type of person who would meticulously research corny dad jokes on the internet just so he can recite them to Peter during Superhero Outings and embarrass him.

honestly the only person on the team who isnt a massive space nerd is Thor, the actual alien

what if stan lee the delivery man didn’t misread the name on the package and steve had actually addressed it to tony stank bc he was still mad about tony trying to kill bucky for something that wasn’t his fault
