In a talk, you tell Tony about how you needed
to take care of your alcoholic father and couldn’t remember him reading you any
bedtime story. He decides you need to know how it feels to
be taken care of.
Relationship: Father!Tony x Daughter!Reader (no incest.) Characters: Tony Stark; Mutant!Reader Word counting: 800+ Notes: A bit of Angst, bad childhood, childhood memories, Tony is actually a very good father. Reader is a… Reader.
This is a part of the Who is In Control series and happens around a month after the prequel (and 10 years before the actual chapters) . See the Masterlist and read the story.
Y/N = Your name Y/F/C = Your favourite colour Y/L/F/C = Your least favourite colour Y/H/C = Your hair colour
Tony watched as Y/N read a book, completely
focused on its words and pages.
They’ve been together for a month and a
half, and he was still learning a lot about her. Her favorite color was Y/F/C
and her least favorite color was Y/L/F/C. Her favorite season was spring –
because it wasn’t too warm nor too cold –, and least favorite was summer. She didn’t have a favorite food yet,
because she loved food in general, and she ate like a frigging bodybuilder.
Also, she had a huge dictionary of curse
words she had learned on the streets, but never used. (Thank God, because he
didn’t know what he’d do if she did.)
Y/N had no idea what she wanted to do in
the future, so she was interested on everything
he would show her. Of course, Tony was always showing her something about
engineering, but he was trying not to put pressure on in that department. He
didn’t want to make her feel like he had high expectations for her future, but wanted
the girl to feel free to do whatever she wanted to.
Her powers were a thing he had to learn how
to deal with during in their first week. When Y/N had a particular bad
nightmare – she had nightmares often, but didn’t tell him –, she could turn her
room upside down in a blink of an eye. Once he had woken up to the sound of her
windows and closet door slamming several times, only to find all of her books
spread on the floor as well as some pieces of furniture and decorations in the
Speech patterns: While he speaks perfect english he still has his Japanese accent
Disabilities: failing eyesight
Style (Elegant, shabby etc.): Professional, comfy
Greatest flaw: Too shy
Best quality: His dedication and follow-through
Hiro grew up in Hokkaido, Japan. The eldest of four siblings, Hiro grew up to be close to his maternal Grandmother who taught him the art of tea as well as calligraphy, two skills he stills practices today. Hiro was often tormented by his younger sisters, causing him to be somewhat nervous around other women. He moved to America to take care of his little brother who wanted to study abroad. He decided to stay after his brother was done with college and he enjoyed a career as a translator and eventually took on a job as a librarian. He met Lorelei at a local book store/coffee shop that he family owns and operates. Too shy to speak to her she broke the ice between them. He loves Lorelei’s strength and liveliness and plans on marrying her as soon as possible.
Optimus: He’s… not really a fan of movie nights at
first. “Hey, Optimus? Wanna watch a movie with us?” “No.”
You refuse to give up however.
You make it your personal goal to find the perfect movie for the stoic
leader of the Autobots. You catch him on
a good day after a particularly satisfying win against the cons and convince him
to reward himself with some much needed r&r. You decide to show him the best Earth cinema
has to offer: Citizen Kane, Casablanca, Lawrence of Arabia, the works. It becomes a Hollywood classics
marathon. Optimus finds himself enjoying
the movies more than he thought, and uses this as an opportunity to study human
culture. He takes a particular interest
in the old Charlton Heston version of The Ten Commandments as Moses’ struggle
with Ramses is something he relates to 1000%.
Little do you know however, that you have now have created a
monster. Whenever no one else is around,
Optimus will pop in the absolute corniest and/or funniest movies he can find
and use them to build his repertoire of Earth dad humor. One day, he walks by you and Raf playing with
Raf’s toy racecars and without missing a beat says, “What is this? A convertible for ants?” He smiles and walks away leaving you and Raf
both utterly speechless. Optimus, why
are you like this???
Ratchet: He’s actually a pretty fun guy when he’s
not stressed 24/7. He enjoys classic
comedies from the 80’s like Ferris Bueller’s Day off, Caddyshack, and pretty
much anything by Mel Brooks. (He won’t
admit it, but he secretly enjoys the raunchier comedies too, not that he’d ever
let you watch them with him.) He also
loves movies about astronauts, but always forgets how much our limited
knowledge of interplanetary travel annoys him.
“There is NO WAY that a human would be able to survive a tear in his
protective suit, let alone use it as a source of adequate propulsion to reach
an orbiting space station!” “Ratchet,
just watch the movie!” Another one of
his favorite genres are movies that have a real emotional connection. One of his favorite movies of all time is
Good Will Hunting. He finds Robin
Williams’ portrayal of the snarky yet caring psychiatrist to be immensely
Bumblebee: It’s no secret that this bot loves his
cowboys! The two of you get together and
have a total western classics marathon with movies like Butch Cassidy and the
Sundance Kid, True Grit, and The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. He gets super into it, pointing his guns at
the screen during a fight, and buzzing happily throughout the film. He also loves helping you make popcorn for
the movie because he loves the sound it makes.
You usually end up with about a bathtub’s worth of popcorn by the end of
it. You two also love to build pillow
forts and pretend to stage shoot-outs in them during the film. After the movie ends, the two of you run
around the base playing cowboys together, which usually involves a lot of
shouting, laughter, and throwing cushions at each other. Ratchet hates cowboy movie nights.
Arcee: She tends to favor historical dramas, especially
those based on true stories or featuring female leads. Movies like Atonement, The King’s Speech, and
The Imitation Game are all right up her alley.
You have to be careful what you watch with her though, as some of those
war movies hit her a little too close to home, especially if one of the main
characters dies. (She had to walk out of
the room at one point during Saving Private Ryan.) Surprisingly, as tough a bot as she is, she
doesn’t mind the occasional romance movie.
Mind you, they have to be good, not some frivolous romantic comedy made
for a quick buck. But stuff like Pride
and Prejudice, Ever After, and The Age of Innocence are movies that Arcee enjoys
from time to time.
Bulkhead: He likes movies featuring ‘the
everyman”. Something like Armageddon
where the hero of the movie is an oil rig worker, or movies featuring a strong
group camaraderie like he had in The Wreckers.
It’s no surprise to anyone that he likes big, explosive action
movies. (They don’t even necessarily
have to be that good either.) Movie nights
with Bulkhead are a ton of fun! You, Bulkhead,
and Miko all cheer at the screen, or shout things at the characters, and pretty
much just talk the entire time. In fact,
a lot of times one of you has to rewind part of it because you were all talking
and missed a crucial scene. He gets
Wheeljack to build some supersonic subwoofers to make those awesome explosion
noises even awesomer! Ratchet hates
action movie nights even more than cowboy nights.
Wheeljack: He’s a huge fan of action movies too, but
he’s a bit pickier about what he watches than Bulkhead. He loves the original Die Hard, but his
preference tends to lean more towards classic spy movies, or something with
sword fighting (he likes to critique the choreography.) He likes those mad sciencey type movies as
well, but more often than not finds himself disappointed at the lack of
realism. “That’s not how teleportation
works.” “I… don’t think most people know
that’s a legit thing, Wheeljack.” Movie
nights with Wheeljack can include anything from the Sean Connery Bond films, to
The Fly, to Kill Bill, to Fight Club. He
loves all of those classic movie quotes.
The two of you practically have your own secret code’s worth of quotable
lines. He’ll walk up to you at random
intervals and say something like, “What’s the first rule of Fight Club, kid?” “Don’t talk about Fight Club.” (finger guns.)
Smokescreen: He’s so excited for movie night!!! He really doesn’t even care what the movie
is, so long as you two get to hang out together and have a ton of fun. He’s happy to let you pick the movies for the
evening, so you show him a number of your favorites. He tends to talk a lot and ask a lot of
questions, so be prepared for that. “Oh,
man! I can’t believe they just did that!”
“ Wait, so he was dead the whole time?!”
“So does this mean that the princess and that blond guy are brother and
sister?” He ends up getting really into
Star Wars, and tries to get Wheeljack to construct him a working
lightsaber. Back to the Future is
another one of his favorites. He likes
to quote lines from it whenever you two ride together. “Smokescreen, you’re going to run us off the
road!” “Where we’re going we don’t need
roads!” (Smokescreen, pls.)
Ultra Magnus: You’re almost kind of scared to ask him
to join you for movie nights, tbh. It’s
only after one night when he walks by you watching a film with one of the other
bots that he questions you about it.
Despite his usual no-nonsense outlook, he’s… just a bit offended that
you didn’t invite him to one of your “camaraderie building exercises” as he
calls them. You make it up to him by
picking out a collection of movies specially selected for him. You go with a good selection of classics,
hoping that he’ll be impressed. You
start out with The Godfather, and then move on to The Bridge on the Rive Kwai,
and To Kill a Mockingbird. He
compliments you on your movie selection, and agrees that he finds the movies
very much to his taste. You apologize
for not including him earlier, and make a special effort to invite him for a
private movie night session at least once a week.
