Tony: "If I were Iron Man, I’d have this girlfriend who knew my true identity. She’d be a wreck. She’d always be worrying I was going to die, yet so proud of the man I’ve become. She’d be wildly conflicted, which would only make her more crazy about me."
Not sure who gets credit for this, but it’s adorable.
Everyone likes to talk about how Pepper helps Tony realize that it’s okay for him to let his guard down, to show his vulnerability, to be human. I agree. However, the same can be said for what Tony does for Pepper. The “new and improved” Tony lets her not have to be the put-together, responsible one all the time. Just as there is Iron Man (“work” Tony) and Tony Stark, there is Pepper Potts, CEO and Pepper the girlfriend. This is the glory of their scene in AVENGERS…the entire idea of the Stark Tower project hand-in-hand with the concept of enjoying the moment. TOGETHER, they bring out the best in each other, create their own symbiosis, if you will.
Send me '☯ + a scene from my characters canon' and I will drabble it from my character's POV.
She’s going to die. This is how it’s going to happen, as the house is blown to pieces around her. The force of the explosion knocks her off her feet, sending her and Tony hurtling back towards the collapsing wall at breakneck speeds—
And just as quickly as she’s flying through the air, something is moving with her. It’s the suit, in bits and pieces that lock together around her slender frame, safely ensconcing her in a protective titanium suit that had almost tried to kill her days ago. Now it’s saving her life.
She hits the ground, hard, the helmet protecting her head but her brain still feels like it’s been rattled in her skull. When she snaps out of the daze, she struggles to sit up because if she’s wearing the suit, Tony isn’t. Tony—
Struggling to her feet, she sees him laying in the rubble, blood on his face. She picks her way through the debris, moving with an agility that surprises her given the build of the suit. He’s sitting up, he’s okay, and her smile is concealed by the helmet until she sees the roof beginning to collapse above him and she throws herself into its path, feeling it crumble harmlessly against her upper back.
"I got you," she says, lifting the visor to look down at him.
"I got you first," is his reply, and if she weren’t so completely relieved that he’s okay, she would roll her eyes.
This ends pretty abruptly because I didn’t know where I wanted it to go after a certain point. Oops.
Tony Stark does not need a personal assistant, thank you very much. If he needs help, he has Dum-E.
OK, bad example. He’s working on it. Still, a PA will take time away from engineering, and that is simply not acceptable.
Nevertheless, Obie insists. He keeps sending people that Tony either hates or drives off with his charming personality. But yesterday, he got an email from a V. Potts telling him about an accounting error that was costing the company a significant amount of money. Today, he told Potts that there is an opening for a position that will pay much better than any of the accounting jobs.
Today, V. Pots accepted his offer to be Tony’s new PA.
Can we all just take a moment to realize that when Peggy told Steve “You won’t be alone” after Bucky was assumed dead, that she would actually always be there for him. She was always there for him during the war, talking him through hard times, and even 70 years later she’s still alive and there for him when he needs someone to talk to.
