The first day of that month in Metru Nui started off as perfectly normal days in Metru Nui often do. That is, with random explosions and a call being sent out for any available law enforcers to come to the aid of the poor citizens being terrorized.
This time, though, it was SLIGHTLY different - instead of the explosions coming from Ta-Metru, as they usually did, they were coming from the desert just beyond the outskirts of Po-Metru's main district. Po-Matoran woken prematurely from slumber ran outside to discover that not only had the waste dump in the desert suddenly decided to combust itself, but the Kikanalo were also in a bit of a frenzy, running wild through the plains and bellowing their displeasure to the sky.
Toa Pohatu Nuva was seen dashing out of his hut, taking one look at the mess, and then heading back to bed, claiming that not only was it "too early for this crap", but the situation was out of his jurisdiction and the Matoran sho

She hasn't known that a person could reach such a high temperature. He was burning, almost literally burning, she couldn't keep her hand on his forehead for long before having to snatch it away again.
He was so ill, too. He tossed and turned in his bed, squirming and moaning, it was like the plague, in fact, it might as well have been for the pain and discomfort it caused him.
Pepper didn't know why he had contracted the illness first (if it even was an illness). Perhaps it was due to his body being weak in the first place. Perhaps it was because he depended on the metal implant in his chest to keep him alive.
She was terrified. Absolutely panic-stricken. She couldn't lose him. Those few months when he had been in captivity... That had been hell. And that was with the desperate hope that he was still alive.
But if she failed this time, if he left her... He wouldn't come back.

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

Its reassuring warm blue glow had died. Just like...

Pepper dropped to her knees, well-aware that this wouldn't help Tony, but what else could she do?

You're Being Weird Again
There's a certain amount of CLASS to be had when dealing with engagements and the like. Rings need to be bought, as do flowers, and long, beautiful declarations of love need to be made. A romantic setting should be included, as well. The beach is popular, or a meadow, even. Sometimes, the couch is used. The male who is proposing often chooses to take the female's hand and look deep, deep, DEEP into her eyes and profess his undying love for her. Usually, she'll jump on him, screaming how much she's been waiting for this day, or she'll simply whip out a tissue and cry.
Class is NOT, however, something Tahu Nuva possesses.
Now, imagine this. You're walking along, and all of a sudden, your best friend who you've been secretly in love with for the past two years randomly pops up behind you and asks you to marry him. In a joking way, might I add.

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.

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.

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.

As the realization hit, he bolted from the room and towards Damian’s down the hall, snatching a hidden set of eskrima sticks next to his bedroom door.
