Josh Keaton just very kindly allowed us a peek at some of the sweet merch he has in his studio!! It’s a family movie night drawing and a letter from Shiro to Josh accompanied by a drawing by Joaquim Dos Santos I’m melting ;A;
arm wrestled dum-e today. does it count as arm wrestling when his whole body is an arm? or is it just wrestling then
steve drew me, and then tony added dum-e to the sketch. nice to see them getting along.
this is just before the table snapped under us. that red stuff is blood from the nosebleed i got, and that white is when dum-e decided that spraying me down with the fire extinguisher would help with the nosebleed
What we know about TenTen as an adult (manga, movie and novels) :
- TenTen is considered an example of elegance, beauty and style. She is praised for her figure.
- She spends most of the time travelling around the world while searching for new weapons and tools.
- Her rank is most likely Tokubetsu Jōnin as she is described as an specialist by Mirai. Not to mention she must at least have this rank to boss around other shinobi during the Chuunin Exams.
- She opened a ninja tools shop as an excuse to be surrounded by ninja tools when there are no missions to do. She doesn’t sell much because of how peaceful the world is now.
- TenTen designes her own ninja tools and has a lot of eccentric ideas that have no useful purpose. Because of that, people are afraid she might go bankrupt.
- After chapter 700 (Konoha Shinden) she designed a kunai people could use at the hot-springs. They became really popular among women who wanted to protect themselves while bathing so she made a lot of money.
- TenTen has become as hot-blooded and dorky as Maito Gai and Rock Lee. In the past, she used to hide this side of her because of embarrassment (even though she secretely enjoyed and admired Lee’s personality), now that she is an adult she has nothing to fear anymore.
- She loves doing childish pranks to others so she is labeled as a bad example for the youth.
- Even though she has no problems dressing herself as a ghost she actually hates them as she fears she will be cursed if she meets one. She shares this fear with Gai-sensei.
- Gai-sensei is the person she idolizes the most. Everybody notices how much she loves him when she talks about him.
- About her love life, it remains unknown if she is married, single or if she has a lover/boyfriend. The last time this topic was brought up was before Naruto’s wedding (Konoha Hiden) in which she openly stated that she has never being in love with a boy in her whole life as she finds weapons more interesting than marriage or dating. Yet she believes she is the only woman who understands and likes Lee the way he is (she has a soft side for him)
- TenTen is the second best taijutsu specialist right after Rock Lee.
- She enjoys teasing others with perverted questions like: “Would you find a naked woman holding a kunai sexy?”
- As she is a bit irresponsable and childish (as pointed out by Kakashi himself), that might be the reason she didn’t bother to check the recording of the Chuunin Exams second test and just let Boruto’s team pass.
- Maito Gai thinks TenTen’s pranks are cute.
- TenTen kept all Rikudou’s Legendary Tools and have them exposed at her shop when she is at Konoha (they are not for sale).
- She is Konoha’s best ninja tools specialist and has been labeled as a one woman army. Fun fact: both Konoha latest legendary shinobi (Maito Gai and Anko) share that same tag with her… this could be a reference to her real goal.
- Boruto thinks she is beautiful and uses her in his sexy-no-jutsu along with other women from her generation. This attack works on Konohamaru.
He knows it’s stupid, but he can’t help it. Anything he loves that will let him lock them away, he will. Which means the ‘bots stay in the lab. FRIDAY barely talks to the returned team. And the cat lives exclusively in Tony’s rooms.
Which rather defeats the point, of course. Jinx is supposed to be there whenever Tony starts to get anxious, whenever he starts to have a panic attack, whenever he gets too wound up and needs to relax before he gives himself another heart attack. Vision, FRIDAY, and Rhodey had been behind the idea, but Tony can’t say he minds the therapy cat.
But he won’t let her around the team, won’t trust the team with her, and of course those are the places where he needs her most often. He does have panic attacks in his rooms, but it’s far more likely for Wanda Maximoff’s magic or Clint’s snide comments or Steve’s sudden moves to set him off.
He solves it by spending most of his time in his lab or in his room, isolated from everyone but a select few FRIDAY knows to let through.
Tony shakily pets down her back. “You’re a good cat, you know that?” He asks. Rhetorical, of course, because he knows she can’t talk back.
But then again, neither can DUM-E or Butterfingers or U, and Tony’s pretty sure he understands them anyways.
She butts her head against his elbow, and he almost manages to smile.
“Yeah, I know.”
He joined whole-team training for the first time today, and as a consequence saw Steve work with the shield he hadn’t wanted to return but had felt pressured into. The world needed Captain America, needed him at his best. And Tony would keep his mouth shut.
He’d made it through almost all of training, despite Rhodey’s, Peter’s, Vision’s, and even Carol’s offers to make his excuses. But Steve had thrown the shield to Bucky, that well-practiced move part of their repertoire, and they had just been standing too close to Tony, and that had been it. Tony thinks he stuttered something about a broken repulsor–a lie, of course, his repulsors take a lot harder hits to break–and made a break for it.
She sprawls across his lap, belly up, and this time Tony does manage to smile before giving her the requested belly-rubs. Unlike Ana Jarvis’ cat from when Tony was small, Jinx will let him pet her for hours, if he needs to. None of the biting him after precisely three strokes business.
The door opens and Tony flinches, and Jinx, perceptive as ever, bats at his hands.
It’s Peter and Vision, though, and Tony does his best to relax. Jinx gives them a thoroughly unimpressed look before deciding she can settle back into Tony’s lap.
“Colonel Rhodes is on his way,” Peter says, pulling his mask off now that they’re in the privacy of Tony’s rooms. “He’s yelling.”
Vision takes over from there. “He’s restructuring the training procedure,” he corrects. “So this will not happen again.”
“Maybe next time Jinx could be there?” Peter suggests.
Tony shakes his head. “No, I…I don’t trust them with her.”
Tony begins petting again, compelled by his pushy cat.
“Can we sit?”
Tony nods, so the couch is filled around him. “We can go back to training just us,” Peter offers.
“How productive is that?” Tony asks rhetorically.
Vision actually answers. “More productive than this, I imagine. If you cannot work with them, then you cannot work with them. We would all understand. We all have our reservations and our problems.”
“But you all do it.”
“They weren’t my friends,” Peter says. “And they didn’t try to kill me.”
The door opens again and Rhodey rolls in, groaning. “I let Carol take over yelling,” he says. “I had more important places to be.”
“You all know they didn’t do anything wrong,” Tony says.
Rhodey rolls his eyes. “Forgive us for being a little mad,” he says dryly.
Jinx moves so she’s sitting in Tony’s lap, then moves up his arm and perches on his shoulder. She’s not a big cat, but Tony still goes a little crooked under the weight. Her tail hits him in the face and he smiles again.
“Movie night?” Rhodey offers. “Carol will probably be up sooner or later, we could order food while we’re waiting.”
There’s no mention of anyone else. For a moment, Tony feels bad, but then the thought of them being in here makes him tense. Jinx butts her head against his.
“I want pizza,” he says, reaching up to pat his cat with one hand and reach for his phone with the other, listening to his friends list their pizza orders.
