man in a suit

Coming Home (Chapter 14)

Quick shout out to @kahuna-burger who suggested the idea of Stane/Tony/ Super Serum. I think that part of the chapter turns out very well!

Sam lays some tough love on his Alpha, but is also amazing and perfect and is there as Tony opens up to him.

Enjoy :) 

***************************

The Iron Man nearly died, and the new stations couldn’t cover it enough.

A chopper full of soldiers had gone down, it’s tail end blown off by a rocket or a missile or a lucky shot from some jerk with a gun– no one knew, and honestly no one cared why the helicopter had gone down carrying six soldiers.

All they cared about was that it hadn’t actually gone down.

The chopper was plummeting to the earth, screaming may day may day, soldiers scrambling to hold onto something– anything–praying for salvation, for mercy, for the families they were going to leave behind–

And then a sonic boom and a red tinted flash, or maybe it was a red tinted flash and then a boom, and the Iron Man had appeared from seemingly no where, coming up under the chopper and throwing the full power of it’s repulsors into slowing the choppers descent.

The soldiers had lived, every one of them with nothing worse than a bruise and a scrape to show for their adventure, but the repulsors on the Iron suit went out at the last minute and it took the full weight of the chopper smashing it into the desert floor.

By the time more military personnel got there to help– and probably to capture the suit– it had powered back on and blasted away into the sky, wobbling and sputtering but still going too fast for the base to scramble jets to intercept it.

But everyone knew the robot, or suit, or whatever it was– almost died being crushed under that helicopter.

Sam knew it too, so he was sitting in the lab waiting for Tony when the Iron Man suit came in for a landing through a secret passage that opened up on the far side of the garage.

hello my name is tony stark and today i’ll be using my anxiety to design a suit made to withstand every possible worst-case-scenario i can come up with

so I had this idea to redraw Rhodonite’s expressions/body language as Ruby’s and Pearl’s individually. should I continue? :p I don’t think I’ve seen anyone do this.

I’ve seen repeated accusations that trans people who post selfies are arrogant or narcissistic. Do you know why we do it? Every day, we go out and are told our gender isn’t valid; there is something wrong with our bodies. Every day we see ourselves represented on TV by cisgender people who will never know what it’s like to be trans. Every day we have to deal with comments online about how we are bathroom predators or sexually confused. When we are able to represent ourselves in ways that we want to, that actually allow us to articulate our own identities to the public, only then can we finally be affirmed. Selfies give us space to show how we want to be seen against the continuous misrepresentation. With selfies, we are finally allowed some autonomy over our bodies, narratives, and lives. I’m going to go ahead and take all the selfies I want to. You should too.
