Tony glanced at Agent ‘Phil’ Coulson and Pepper getting on
the elevator and went back to his 'homework’.
The tesseract. He’d seen this before somewhere in his
father’s work, which got him thinking. He smirked, “Jarvis run recognition
on this face.” He touched this so called god’s face. Green…why were bad
guys always green?
“How close of a recognition are you looking for
sir?” Jarvis asked, “and on what scale?”
“Global scale, close as you can get.” Tony told
him flipping the image of the tesseract around in the air. He loved his toys,
“I have a feeling if we find our god of mischief, we’ll find our power
source. But just on the safe side they are having Banner come in. I really got
to meet him, it’s just too tempting.”
“Sir are you insinuating that you’re going to make him
“No, of course not, just going to talk and totally keep
him stress free.” Tony rambled off, “What kind of person do you think
“I was considered, what was it… volatile, self-centered,
and I don’t play well with others.” Jarvis replayed Tony’s own voice to
“Haha very funny.” Tony rolled his eyes,
“Keep it up I’ll replace you with a sexy woman’s voice.”
“I’m sure Miss Potts will enjoy that.” Jarvis told
Tony looked up, “Shut it, I have reading to do.”
He pulled up another file labeled 'thermonuclear astrophysics’.
It didn’t take him long to figure things out and not much
longer for Jarvis to locate Loki. After a brief encounter with ‘Fabio’ and the ‘Star
Spangled Banner’ he landed on S.H.E.I.L.D.’s moving base. He had to admit he
was somewhat impressed.
Even some of the technology resembled his own he noted as he
walked onto the bridge, even had some flair to it that familiar.
Being the suave man that he was it wasn’t hard to plant
Jarvis on the computer. Soon after playing spy he and Banner where in a lab
He asked leaning on the table a small zapper in his hand,
“You really have got a lid on it, haven’t you? What’s your secret? Mellow
jazz? Bongo drums? Huge bag of weed?”
“Is everything a joke to you?” Steve walked in
irritated when he saw Tony zap Bruce.
“Funny things.” Tony smirked at him
“He finds everything funny Steve, don’t take it
personally.” Tony felt his chest tighten at the sound of that voice. The
sight made his face burn.
“Y/N.” Steve looked at you, “He just
“I’m well aware.” You smiled and looked at Tony
unsure of what would happen next, “Mr. Stark.”
“What are you doing here?” Tony growled eyes
narrowing on you as his jaw clenched.
“I work here.” You told him holding onto the
documents you had with you tightly.
“Fury must be dead desperate then.” Tony told
them, “Because I wouldn’t even consider you a choice even if I was
You smiled sadly as you looked down, “Good to see you
“No it’s not good!” Tony raised his voice as his
ears got hot.
“Mr. Stark, you need to calm down.” Steve pointed
a finger at him.
“Stay out of this Cap, and especially away from
her!” Tony shouted pointing toward you.
You put a hand on Steve’s arm to stop him from walking over
to Tony, “It’s okay, Steve.”
“Yeah it’s okay.” Tony spat out like a snake
spitting venom, “We have an unspoken agreement, that she keeps her mouth
shut and does what she’s told.”
“Dr. Banner.” You walked forward with a file
passing Tony. You could feel the rage from his gaze, it burned, “This is
everything asked for.”
“Thank you Miss Y/N.” Bruce took the file and
started to look at it.
“Of course, please let me know if you need anything
else.” You nodded as you turned looking at Tony, “You know if you
want to know what Fury keeps locked up.” You threw a disc at him as you
turned to leave, “You usually just have to ask him.”
Tony looked at the disc in his hands then started to follow
you out, “Oh you think you’re so smart don’t you?”
You stopped and turned to look at him, “I am smart Mr.
Stark, just thought I’d let you actually work on the problem in front of you
instead of worry about what Fury’s hiding. Finding the tesseract is more…”
“Bullshit.” He cut in glaring at you darkly.
“Excuse me?” You took a step back giving him a
“Mr. Stark I think you need to take a step back.“ Steve
told him as he walked out into the hall. "Y/N is just trying to
“Y/N? First name bases huh?” He stared down into
your eyes, “What’d you have to do to get that privilege?” You looked
away from him quickly your cheeks flushing at his insinuations, “That’s
right, know your place on the food chain.”
At that remark you looked back at him, “God you’re
still such a little boy.”
Tony’s nose flared at your defiance, “And you would
“Well obviously you haven’t grown up at all!” You told
him, “I mean seriously, trying to insult my friendships and intelligence
is beneath you.”
“I’m not insulting your intelligence, I’m stating a
fact.” He stepped closer towering over you as he spoke, “You equate
Steve was about to say something but you beat him to it,
Tony nodded, “Yes.”
“Well then this 'nothing’ will be taking its self and
going someplace else.” You turned looking at Steve blinking the tears back
as you walked away.
Once you were further away Steve looked at Tony, “That
was uncalled for.”
“No that was justified.” Tony told him, “You
don’t know what happened, so stay out of it. Besides we have bigger things to
worry about.” He looked at the disc and threw it on the table as he walked
back into the lab, “Jarvis should be in the system now.”
Once you were out of view you leaned against the wall and just
let the tears slid down your face.
Natasha walked up behind you slowly hearing your quiet sobs,
“Oh Nat…” You smiled as you wiped your face
sniffing, “How’s it going?”
“A lot better then you I think. What happen?” Nat
wasn’t one for girlfriends, but when she 'worked’ for Stark Industries you had
given her some sound advice about Pepper which won her over after the birthday
party incident. She felt like she owed you.
“Just the normal I suppose.” You let out a
half-hearted laugh, “Tony Stark sure is a visionary when he uses his
Natasha looked at you, “Got ugly?“
"Very.” You looked at her, “I 'equate to
“You know that’s not true.” Natasha told you
firmly, “Stark would be dead, what, three times over now if it wasn’t for
“He doesn’t know that though.” You told her with a
sad smile, “He just thinks twenty five years ago I stabbed him in the
back.” You pushed off the wall, “I have to go, Fury wants me to check
on the firewalls that Tony breaking through, shouldn’t take long. Just a few
key strokes and it should be done, so if anyone needs me I’ll be in the
cafeteria relaxing for a minute.”
Natasha watched the broken girl walk away. She on the other
had turned on her heels and headed for the lab. She walked in and over to one
of the computers.
“What are you doing?” Tony looked at her, “We
need that on the screen it was on, if you need a computer you could go
“Actually we need to talk Stark, Dr. Banner please
leave for a minute.” Natasha turned around looking at Tony.
Banner exited quickly and Tony crossed his arms staring at
“You need to see something.” She pulled up your file.
“I know about her thank you.” Tony set his jaw,
“Is this what we’re talking about? Did she come crying to you to save
her?” He popped a blueberry in his mouth.
“Actually she’s taking the hits. She’s letting you
abuse her.” Natasha told him, “She’s pretty much accepting that you
hate her, even though you owe her your life.”
“I owe her nothing.” He rolled his eyes.
“Really, you wanna know who actually found you in the
desert that day.” She leaned over the keyboard clicking through to a
“Rhodes we have to
call it.” The pilot told him.
“Just a little
longer.” He told them.
“We’re entering a
“I know that just
keep looking.” Rhodes looked into the camera, “You see anything on
that thing of yours.”
The camera panned down
to a scanner that read off large signatures of energy, “Just the same
thing. There was a spike about an hour ago.”
“You’re sure it’s
Tony.” Rhodes spoke.

“Sir we got

looked at the camera again, “He can’t know I’m here.”
Rhodes nodded, “I
understand. Thank you for finding him Miss L/N.” He pulled a khaki scarf
out of his pocket, “Put this on.”
The next few frames
were of the helicopter landing and collecting Tony. They got him on the
helicopter. Tony looked around at all of them, “Thank you…thank you so
much…” He looked in the camera and smiled tiredly, “Thank you.”
Natasha looked at Tony. His face was unreadable. “She
also is the one who confirmed the lithium dioxide injection, and found that new
“No no, I discovered this with my father’s help.”
Tony corrected her.
“Yeah second place to Tony Stark.” She told him,
“Fury had her working on this for months. She refused to open the box that
belonged to your father for personal reasons, then finally she didn’t have a
choice and she did it for you.”
“No see I worked 18 hrs-” Tony started.
“She worked 36 hours and told Fury that you needed the
satisfaction of discovering it yourself.” She pulled up your work.
Tony looked at the screen. It was an arc reactor, but not
“If you didn’t make it in time, we would’ve plugged
this into you ourselves.” Natasha showed him, “And you need her help
on this. So man up at least until we’re done saving the world.”
“This doesn’t change anything.” Tony looked at her
“Didn’t expect it to.” She told him without
stopping, “But you should know that just because you hate her, doesn’t
mean that she hates you.”
Tony looked back at the screen. He didn’t like it. All these
years you’d been right on his doorstop and he never knew. He started looking
through the files of all your work and in the process he started to rediscover

I sat looking over the
city with a mug of coffee when Thor came in, walking with Loki. “Lady Y/N?” He boomed.
“Here, Thor.” I said,
rubbing my temples yet again. The man
was loud, even in the morning.
“I have come to place my
brother in your care, assuming you still accept to be his warden.”
“Good morning, Loki,” I
waved, “You can go Thor, I know you have a mission all set up.”
“Something to do with
your eastern middle.”
“Middle East,” Loki and I
corrected at the same time.
Thor shrugged, “A shorter
way to communicate.”
“Simplicity is a virtue.”
I mumbled to myself, and Loki smirked, sitting down on the armchair next to
me. Thor left the room in a movement of
his red cape.
“How goes your recovery?”
Loki asked me.
“I’m peaches and
ice-cream, Loki.” I lied.
“You’re not being honest
with me.” He responded.
“I don’t want to talk
about it.” I said.
“Then what’re we going to

I read Hemmingway’s ‘Hills

COCA-COLA AND MARVEL TEAMING UP FOR SUPERBOWL COMMERCIAL!
Marvel and Coca-Cola have teased that they are to release a joint commercial at the Super Bowl!
For a limited time Coca-Cola cans will feature pictures of Marvel characters from a list of Captain America, Ironman, Hulk, Falcon, Black Widow, Thor, and Antman. These have been branded “First Editions” so there may be new characters added in the future!
The tagline for the promotion is “The Big Game Is Just The Beginning”. We’re not sure what that means but it gets us excited!
Hear me out here: I think Uncle Nick Fury is canon, because that’s where Tony got his flare for dramatics from. “You better keep both eyes open” Nick Fury taught 7 or 8 year old Tony his sense of mellow drama and presentation. Then of course there’s the whole “I am just an old man that cares about you.” (one of the few things they actually did alright in aou)
Howard is kind of a stiff board kind of showman. He’s calculated and charming sure but it doesn’t really flow smoothly as Tony does. It doesn’t come off as natural and unrehearsed. He certainly doesn’t pack as a big of a punch as Tony does.
So my thought is he didn’t get it from Howard at all. He got a mix of it from his Aunt Peggy and a shit ton of it from his Dramatic Exit or Entrance Billowy Leather Coat wearing Nick Fury. Whose presence awes and wows people ever time he enters a room. Tiny Tony being so impressed and star struck. Shadowing a quietly amused Fury from room to room when ever he visits Aunty Peggy at the office.
He gets his swagger and charm from watching old news reals of Bucky. He gets his fighting style, mischief and charisma fro Aunt Peggy. He gets his morals from Cap, Jarvis, Peggy and Anna. He gets his nick names from Auntie Angie and his culture, business prowess and lust of science and the stars from his mama Maria.
He gets his trust issues, self esteem issues and crippling fear of abandonment from Howard.
Death doesn’t discriminate
Between the sinners and the saints
It takes and it takes and it takes
And we keep living anyway
We rise and we fall and we break
And we make our mistakes
And if there’s a reason I’m still alive
When everyone who loves me has died
I’m willing to wait for it
