I got a rarw pair for ya: Tony Stark and Jessica Jones (can be romantic or friendship) but maybe some H/C humor witty banter maybe, post CW
Okay, so I’ve been debating how to answer this prompt because I have a story in mind, but the story is definitely longer than a drabble. Sometimes in this scenario I pick a scene to write out that gives a rough idea of the story, but in this case I can’t pinpoint the best scene for that, so here goes a summary of the story I have in mind for these two:
Jessica Jones gets called into Jeri Hogarth’s office under the impression that she is going to be given a job. When she arrives Jeri is talking to some uppity, rich, jackass who wears sunglasses indoors, and aw fucking Christ, if it isn’t the goddamn poster child for the rich and privileged: Tony fuckin’ Stark.
Well, okay, maybe better than the average rich and privileged trash that frequents Jeri’s office–at least the guy tries to saves people’s lives, even if he’s still a condescending asshole with low self-esteem and daddy issues (she’s seen his type enough to recognize the mess going on under that douchebag goatee).
Jeri introduces Jessica and Tony, and it doesn’t take long for Jessica to realize this is a set up. Tony Stark plays like he had no idea Jeri arranged for this to happen, but the dude’s supposed to be a genius, so Jessica doubts he’s as innocent as he feigns to be.
Jeri reveals that Tony Stark is interested in the Killgrave case, specifically the mind control aspect of the case.
Jessica is enraged. She cusses out the two and storms out of the office.
Cut to a day or two later when Jessica is knocking back a can of beer in her office and Tony Stark strolls in.
“Unless you got a case, you can get your ass out of my office,” she says.
Tony makes a casual yet sarcastic remark about the office. “Besides, as much as I love the idea of the hardened detective who can only find happiness at the bottom of a bottle due to tragic circumstances trope, I much rather hire someone sober.”
Jessica opens her mouth to make a biting remark, but before she can get it out, Tony continues. “I came here, because, hard as it may be to believe, I had no intention to put you on the spot like that the other day.”
“You came all the way down here to give me some shitty apology?”
“No. I would like to pick your brain about Killgrave. Terrible name, by the way. No one wonder he turned out to be such a villain. Anyway, I don’t expect you to talk to me. It’s your business. That being said, I wanted to leave an avenue open in case you ever want to talk.” Tony places a business card on Jessica’s desk.
And here Jessica had thought Tony Stark was all high tech and would tell her that he broken into her phone or computer and left his number or email. Jessica is still pissed though. “You’re a real piece of work.”
Something flashes through Tony’s eyes. “I know. What can I say? I want my tech to be the best.”
“Tech?” the word slips out of Jessica’s mouth unbidden.
“I should make you sign a NDA, but considering I caught you off guard the other day, I won’t and we’ll call it even. I’m looking into upgrading BARF, specifically to help those he have gone through mind control or brainwashing. Perhaps even create something that could prevent brainwashing or mind control in the future.”
Jessica isn’t quite sure what to say. There’s something witty and insulting on the tip of her tongue, but her throat is dry, and she can’t bring herself to say it.
“I’m not your experiment,” she says instead.
“I never said you were.” Tony then exits, leaving Jessica pissed off and confused about what had just happened.
Jessica ends up drinking two more beers.
Days pass, then weeks. Eventually Jessica calls Tony. She thinks she is crazy and stupid for doing so, but if she can save at least one person from becoming like Hope then Jessica will do just about anything.
Working with Tony isn’t easy, and they clash constantly, but eventually a tentative bond forms. They become friends, and in the future possibly more.
