It had taken only five minutes or so to introduce Pepper to the motley band spread before herwhile skimping on some of the finer details, mind youand a solid ten for Tony to calm Bruce down and avoid the Hulk making a surprise guest appearance when he jokingly stated that it had been the gamma specialist that had wrecked the most havoc on their 'humble' abode and nearly killed their baby.
It took a great deal of work to convince him that their 'baby' was their failed metaphor for Stark Tower as he was initially led to believe that in his hulking green state he'd unintentionally killed a child.
"I was kidding," Tony said later that night as he sprawled across his bed, for the most part trying to disregard the fact that they had five more house guests than he'd planned on. In his mind it was just supposed to be him for the night and having Pepper over was just an

"What just happened? Please tell me nobody kissed me."
The look on Tony Stark's face was rather priceless. A bit more than just a little terrified, but still priceless.
In all honesty, Natasha had never seen such a mortified expression on the billionairegranted, he'd looked none-too-thrilled with the palladium that had been poisoning him the first time she'd met him, but she had to admit that he possessed a pretty good poker face since he'd only ever appeared to her more uncertain than terrified.
But that was nothing compared to the paled features of the man that had once talked his way out of more than one scrape.
Then again, those 'scrapes' hadn't involved telling Pepper's father that she couldn't talk on the phone because she and Tony were too busy having sex. First time for everything, apparently.
Natasha couldn't help but let a small smirk slip out at the way Iron Man winced at the unholy glare from hi

He hadn't come back up.
It was the drugs. Natasha had seen them administered, watched the doctor inject him. He'd succumbed to sleep, but not before asking her something. Something that changed her.
"If... If I'd asked you to marry me, would you have said yes?"
She'd told him yes, and he'd smiled hugely as he closed his eyes.
A day later, she'd gone back to see him.
The same doctor as before had come up to her, his eyes sombre. He told her that something had gone wrong, and Clint hadn't woken up.
She doesn't remember much of what happened. In a trance, she'd swung her arm at the doctor, who went down. She'd shouted obscenities in Russian at the hospital staff as security restrained her.
She comes back the next day and demands quietly but firmly to see him.
They let her in reluctantly, warning her to be careful
Birdie in a BasketEight-year-old Bruce Wayne had now completely severed any romantic feelings he had for Karen. Of course they would continue being friends, but it just didn’t work out—he wanted him for his ponies, not for him. He saw the limousine arrive. He thought about the talk he would have with his little robin toy that was neatly hidden in a hole in the wall behind the Gray Ghost poster in his room. It had been a pretty crummy day. He didn’t want to burden Alfred with his juvenile love issues—his robin would understand.Birdie in a Basket1 year ago in Humor More Like This
“How was your day, Master Bruce?” Alfred asked from the driver’s seat.
“It was fine.” The little bat boy answered.
They didn’t say much on the way back to the mansion. As soon as they got home, Bruce went straight up to his room. He settled his backpack on the floor, took off his boots, and went immediately to the Gray Ghost poster and took out his toy. “It’s been quite a day, Robin” he started as he sa

"Oh but I am." winked Loki at Tony. "You see, this could just be a vision or a dream to you." Loki rocked on his heels, hovering just barely over Tony. Luckily nothing was in his hands. And hopefully, nothing would be in his hands Tony prayed.
"Or a nightmare." Tony retorted. Loki smirked at this. "Do you honestly enjoy being a monster?" he asked.
Loki flinched at the last word. "I am what I am." he stated simply. "No more no less."
"Then what are you doing here?" Tony demanded. "How are you here?" Loki gestured around him. "How do you guess?"
"The storm?" asked Tony. "I thought storms were more of Thor's thing?"
Loki growled. "My adoptive brother may be the God of Thunder, but even I can travel through it."
Tony realized something. "The electricity? So part of your form materialized down here through the lighting, but then, how are you here. In this house?"

And it's nothing new for Natasha Romanoff.
She is using two pistols at once, firing with equal skill with both hands. One bang and two enemies are down, one shot from each hand. Someone attempts to sneak up on her and she spins at once, knocking them down with the barrel of her gun.
She turns to her right, aiming for a large man who is barreling foolishly at her, when she is knocked off her feet and shoved behind a nearby overturned car. She whips around.
"Clint, what are you doing? I was- Clint?" Her partner is down, his face contorted in pain. She looks up to see the wicked-faced man aiming again.

She was surprised to see him.
It was obvious. She was flustered when he walked in, and in an attempt to hide it she'd rushed about getting the place ready for him. Now the therapist sat in the chair opposite the soldier, taking slow, deep breaths to try to calm her pulse, which was racing in her neck from running about.
Her enthusiasm was kind, but it just ended up annoying John that she was making a big deal out of this. It was hard enough to come back in the first place. But he'd had to get out of his room, and he'd automatically told the cabbie this address and hadn't bothered correcting his own impulse. So he ended up here, he'd might as well come in for a session. He had no-where else to go. Well, not quite. He always had places to go, and plenty of offers of hospitality since well, since the event. Just no-where he wanted to go. He loved the people who offered, but each reminded him in their own litt

Steve could not recall ever seeing Thor so irritated. He could feel the static building in the air as the demigod's anger rose.
"This is unacceptable, Fenrir! Loki does not have the authority to send you here. Leave Midgard, now."
"Ah, but you do not have the authority to send me away," the wolf countered in a deep drawl, looking far too haughty for the Captain's comfort. "I was sent here for a purpose, and only she whom I protect may send me away. That is a decision the Lady Sigyn will make."
"Your presence here will not be tolerated by the others. They will cast Sigyn out and you will put her in more danger of being captured."
"Then I shall accompany her in this pitiful realm until the day Loki comes for her. Nobody in Asgard will dare challenge me, and the mortals will soon learn the same."

Months passed and slowly the amount of bruises and cuts on Phils body grew.
Chris was an extremely violent person; nothing like he seemed to be around Dan.
Phil tried his best to stay near Dan, or at least make sure the brown haired male was in the same room as much as possible during the first week of beatings. That way Chris wouldn't try and hurt him as much.
But alas, Chris soon caught on to this and, let's just say he wasn't very happy.
Phil had spent the day round Carries house listening to her rehearse for an audition she had the next day, her voice was as beautiful and Phil was sure he would soon be seeing her on stage.
He was now trudging home in the dark, he wanted to get home and see Dan but he knew Chris would be there and his heart would break a little more.
So he continued his slow walk home with a frown on his face, but suddenly a strange feeling washed over him.
He could feel eyes burning in to the back of his head and an icy chill ran down his back.

That is, on most days when he could fly free and not for mission purposes. Sadly today, he had a bit of an agenda. To find out what the freak was doing on his doorstep. Literally.
He flew over his house, circling, making sure that there were no other threats before he stopped at his door, held his "flight stabilizers" at the loco chick who seemed to be knocked out cold, his missiles were popped out and ready to aim at the girl in case there were any sudden surprises. He had enough of them lately.
"Hey you. GET UP!" he yelled. "And who are you?"

He whipped around, lasers and missiles aimed at the incredibly terrified fourteen-year-old boy standing behind
Avengers DrabbleSteve Rogers loved the nights when it rained. Stark Tower was set against the skyline of the city of progress, and when it stormed it stormed hard. The floor to ceiling windows of his floor- Tony had insisted- clattered and pinged in protest to the drops hurtling hundreds of feet from the heavens to the wasted streets of New York. Lightning drowned out the neon and the fluorescent glow of the city, and a roll of thunder would shake its foundations.Avengers Drabble2 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
The day after it rained was usually harsh, daylight streaming through the tinted glass, ruining the mystique of living in a cloud. They would shuffle into the common room, Thor rubbing his neck and casting down his gaze, avoiding everyone's eyes.

The city was still somewhat quiet as the first rays of sunshine began to peek over the tops of the eastern most buildings. Houses built on the outskirts of town cast long shadows across the fields and groves of trees surrounding them. Birds resting in their branches took to the air with the first notes of the day’s song flowing from their beaks. Even at the early hour, the streets began to fill with cars, their occupants too eager to begin work, only to arrive and become anxious for its end. Though the city was beginning to come awake, in darker corners and closed off rooms many occupants still slept, caught up in their own dream world, either too content or tired to wake.
Towards the center of the city stood a wide green lawn with a long concrete walkway down its center. Shallow pools of water lined th

What did catch his attention though was the reaction of the other inmates to whoever the guards were dragging along. Now his curiosity was caught and he pushed himself off of the bed and made his way to the door. He caught glimpses of blonde hair before a gasp left his mouth and his beloved book slipped from his fingers.
They were dragging along Alice Wayne. He would recognize the girl even if it had been a small number of years since he had last seen her. He frowned immediately, wondering what they could have possibly done to the poor girl. She looked weak, sick, and could barely stand up straight. That wasn't normal.
The guards were dragging her roughly along before tossing her carelessly into a cell across the hall and two down from his own. She made no move to get up off the floor, emitting a weak moan instead.

I thought we were friends.
At least, that's what I thought.
I though she would listen to me.
What did I do?
I thought I was her friend, her companion, her buddy. I was certain that she'd at least take the time to say goodbye.
Ever since I met her, I hung around her a lot. And she wouldn't mind. She would just shrug it off. Of course, she was always annoyed, one way or another. I knew I should've been acting more mature for my age, but...I don't know.
