Day twenty-two of the November Fic Challenge is a Pacific Rim AU! My one hundred percent self indulgent prompt for the list, I love PacRim AUs. Established Pepper/Tony with future Pepper/Tony/Rhodey, featuring the boys as Jaeger pilots and Pepper as a Shatterdome tech.
Tony and Rhodey
share everything. They have no secrets, haven’t since they became
best friends in the Jaeger Academy, and that’s even before they
started drifting together. Tony trusts Rhodey with his life, and he
knows Rhodey feels the same about him. So why the hell is Rhodey
being so shifty lately?
“This is the third
time you’ve pushed back testing our Conn-Pod upgrades this week,”
Tony says, frowning even though Rhodey can’t see him over the
phone. “What gives?”
“Sorry, Tony. I’ve
just been real busy,” Rhodey replies, apologetic, and normally Tony
would believe him, but Rhodey hasn’t said what
he’s been busy with at all. “Next week we’ll get it done, I
if a kaiju attacks in the meantime?”
we’ll test the upgrades on the fly. Stop worrying so much, Tones.
Take Pepper out for dinner tonight or something. I’ll talk to you
Tony scowls at his phone as the bastard actually hangs up on him.
Fine then, if Rhodey wants to be secretive, Tony’ll just have
to figure it out himself.
Also its been 3 chapters of grayscale despite the fact that ive had their colours since the beginning hue hue, so here have the cropped cover image in full colour(flats because my shading masks all colours)

Tony is a target for violence for many reasons. Pepper, meanwhile, isn’t sure which makes her more of a target: being the C.E.O. of Stark Industries or somebody who is close to Tony Stark himself, something of an “emotional attachment” or “Achilles’ heel.”
