Tony can feel his heart in his throat and his pulse ricocheting through his body in an uneven rhythm. He drums his fingers against the rim of his arc reactor, the tap-tapping jagged and uneven over the thunderous beating of his heart. 

He clears his throat. “So,” he begins with forced nonchalance, “you wanna tell me what that was about?”

Steve is turned away from him, looking out the window, arms crossed over his chest. Tony can’t decide if it’s better or worse that he can’t see Steve’s face. 

When he gets no response after a long few seconds, Tony clears his throat pointedly.

Heaving a great sigh, Steve slowly turns around to begrudgingly face Tony. 

“You drive me crazy, Tony,” Steve says, his brow furrowed and his voice tight and weary all at the same time. 

“Yeah, I got that part,” Tony answers, waving his hand. “You tell me that all the time. I’m talking about the part where you randomly said ‘I love you’ in the middle of a debriefing.”

Torch Thursday: Solexstras Sunflare

Mod Dura: Oh, well damn, Dura, looks like you’ve got the attention of quite a few people.. you caught the attention of.. the shadow doctor.. Solexstras Sunflare!!!!

*a red haired sindorei walks on stage wearing a purple suit and tie as he takes the offered mic and stands next to Dura*

Sol: Thank you, sir! Though I must say.. he’s not that bad of a fellow, that is, if you like BDSM leather and blood loss..

But, seriously, when was the last time you ever considered cutting that long hair if your’s? From the back you look as if you could be a banshee, and you know how many people are into Sylvanas..

I was once his full time doctor, he was as fit as an ox.. minus the no heart rate, of course. Oh, and he hates needles… what kind of blood sucking, sadomasochistic, undead elven creature that bites people with razor sharp teeth and claws uses daggers, swords, and other objects..

Yet.. he HATES needles…

What in the Fel..

And another thing.. the beauty was right.. for a shadow walker, you don’t know how to keep your mouth shut nor do you stay out of the spotlight.. I mean really.. Let someone else have a chance, you glory hogging pig.

And what’s with the Daddy reference, the Dark Father, I didn’t realize you were into such things, Lord Daevara.. tell me.. do you call women Mommy too?…

Oh.. and one more thing before I give the microphone back to your Modern counterpart..

*Sol gets right in Dura’s face*

Can you PLEASE.. STOP stealing my donations.. they are NOT your snack!!

Thank you… *he bows as the audience applauds him*

Modern Dura: Solexstras Sunflare, folks!

Polycarpa aurata

…Also sometimes known as the “Ox Heart Ascidian/Tunicate” due to its apperance, Polycarpa aurata is a species of Styelid tunicate which occurs in most parts of the Indo-Pacific. Like most other species of tunicates Polycarpa aurata is a filter feeder, filtering the water around it for a range of nutrients.
