'He fell to his knees, tears in his eyes and a cold feeling in his chest.' For the fic-sentence prompt thing. ;)
I see you’re gunning for a Tonyfic. *promptly subverts prompt*
And also it ran away with me. Apparently I’m weak to prompts. Feel free to abuse that feature.
He fell to his knees, tears in his eyes and a cold feeling in his chest. He dropped. No- what? Wasn’t he just on the ground?
“Sir! Sir, are you okay?”
What? What? Where was he. What- he was shut in something cold and hard and all he could see was blue. His torso felt so heavy and cold and this was wrong. His breath kept getting shorter. That was wrong too.
“Sir! Sir, please respond!”
“J! I’m here. Authentication code why the fuck do I need an authentication code. That’s Cap. Override code correct horse battery staple. Go to autopilot. He okay?”’
NOTHING WAS OKAY WHO HAD STOLEN HIS VOICE.
He tried to move, but the cold hard blue kept him in place. The voice he dimly recognized as JARVIS, safe, spoke softly. “Captain. Please breathe as I ask you to. First. In. One. Two- do not attempt a full breath, Captain. Please do not strain for one. Out. One. Two. Three.”
It took a few minutes, but he gradually calmed down. “What happened?” It was supposed to be a demand, but it came out rasped and full of residual panic.
There was a click, and the blue vanished. What he belatedly realized was the faceplate of the Iron Man armor creaked just a bit when it opened. He stared into the same face he’d worn just minutes ago. Except he thought he didn’t look quite so pissed. Usually, at least. “Loki. Loki happened.”
