Avengers Day Off #4
As the last of Pepper’s cries of “noooooyouidiotnoooooo…” trailed off into the distance, Tony last thoughts before ‘the incident’ were “I. am. a. GENIUS.”
When I saw that Friends with Fangs was taking commissions — specifically commissions of people kissing, which is just an adorable specialty — my response can be summed up as “OMG WHY CAN’T I TYPE THIS REQUEST EMAIL FASTER.” I didn’t have to think too hard about what to ask for. :D
My expectations were high — FwF’s artwork is responsible for ruining my life, after all — but omfg this actually exceeded my expectations. I literally screamed with delight when I first saw it. It captures exactly what I asked for, and it’s got all the most delightful details to boot.
I love Bruce’s hand, in which all his anticipation and pleasure is summed up. I love that he’s got just that little hint of pudge that he had in the 2012 movie, which will forever make him my favorite superhero. I love the way Pepper’s body is so confidently and intimately cocked forward, I love the way she’s hiding the handcuffs, I love her expression, I love all of their expressions. And dear god how I love the placement of Tony’s hands, perfect perfect perfect.
The sound that I made when I saw this.
This is why I tumble, because omfg, someone illustrated the inside of my head and that is an amazing thing.
You rock, Qiyaa!!
“from pepper” omg
this blog really hasn’t been active very much recently, and i’m sorry about that.
so in an effort to get it running on a little bit more regular basis, i’d like to ask you all if there’s anyone out there who wants to co-run this blog with me for a while, potentially eventually taking over the biz entirely!
ideally, i’d be looking for someone who’s capable of spending a little time reading fic and rec’ing fic, because i’m waaaay too busy with school to do that (and it seems like most of the content for this ship is fic rather than fanart anyway.)
if you’re interested let me know by replying to this post, sending this blog a message, or sending a message to my main blog.
as far as keeping this blog updated goes, there hasn’t been much in the tags that i’ve seen, and i don’t have time (like i said) to troll AO3 for fics to recommend. it would do me a HUUUUGE favor if you guys were to submit links to fic you’ve written or read, or links to fanart if you stumble across it. i’ve got the submit link working over there so please feel free to use it!
thank you all for your support! you guys are the reason i’m trying to breathe some life back into this blog!
from your loving mod,
plumbat asked: Hey, I'd like to submit something, but there doesn't seem to be a button to do so, and tumblr won't let me put a link in an ask.
let me fix that for you!
update: there’s a link on the side thing over there! :)
For Jet, who requested Tony, Bruce and Pepper at an aquarium.
Pepper’s pointing out that the puffer fish looks like Hulk when he’s all puffed up and angry.
No Tony, you cannot build an Iron Octopus.
“Okay, team! Where do we want to go for our anniversary?” Tony doesn’t even turn around as he points at Clint, who had sat up a little straighter and peered over the back of the couch with interest. “And by team I mean Bruce and Pepper, not my actual team. Don’t even try, Barton.”
Bruce can’t help but smile a little as Clint flips off Tony and goes back to watching TV. “We don’t have to go anywhere, I’m fine just doing something here.”
Tony looks absolutely scandalized. Pepper just rolls her eyes at him before replying to Bruce. “You know how Tony is, the more extravagant the better. You deserve a vacation, Bruce. Some time off will do you good.”
Sorry this blog has been terribly inactive lately. I haven’t seen very much Tony/Pepper/Bruce stuff on my dash or in the tracked tags, so there’s been a dearth of content for this blog.
However, I feel like I should probably put out some feelers and see if there’s anyone interested in co-running this blog with me who might be able to do more reading/rec-ing of fic than I’d be able to do. If you’re interested, just send me a message!
I hope I’ll be able to make this blog more active soon! As usual, feel free to submit things if you have things to submit or rec!
The first time Pepper met Bruce was the first time she saw Tony after getting back from DC after the Chitauri battle. Her nerves were stretched to the breaking point. She wanted to both kiss Tony and yell at him so intensely that she couldn’t manage to do anything besides grab Tony’s arms and hang on.
Tony mirrored her gesture, though his grip on her arms was much more careful and gentle. “Pepper…” Tony’s mouth was still open, like he wanted to say more but couldn’t get the words out. She watched the micro-expressions on his face shift as he tried to regroup and work past the choking mass of emotions and reactions in his head.
Finally he took a step to the side, forcing Pepper to turn so that Bruce (who had been trying to let them have their moment) was in her line of sight. Tony took a breath and started talking at his normal (fast) pace. “You need to meet Dr. Bruce Banner. Pepper, Bruce. Bruce, Pepper. His alter ego saved my life and he’s br…”
Before he could finish his sentence Pepper had let go of him and grasped both of Bruce’s hands in her own. “Thank you,” she said in a quiet voice filled with equal parts desperation and relief. “Thank you.” She pulled their joined hands closer to her and lifted them up to press her forehead against them. Bruce could feel her breath against the inside of his wrists and a tear drip onto his thumb as she just held onto him for a few seconds. Bruce looked to Tony for direction, but Tony was just staring at them both with a look of profound gratitude layered over the don’t-know-whether-to-laugh-or-cry expression he’d had for most of the time since they got back from shwarma.
