Who: Extremis! Tony Stark and Pepper Potts Where: Inside the Malibu beach house of win When: Tuesday evening Why: Tony's still a little strange. Rating: Sex. Duh.
A loud clanging rang through the workshop below the house as Tony puttered about listlessly, picking up random object, tinkered with them, then dropped them back on in place. Nothing entertained him or captured his interest long enough to get him to sit still, and he'd gone back to that old habit of tapping the arc reactor on his chest when he was deep in thought. He had just been getting back into himself when this came out of nowhere and plopped in his lap. He'd woken on more than one occasion with flashbacks of the cave, of the rough surgery to install the electromagnet, and he knew it had to have worried Pepper to hear him yell in his sleep and then retreat to the bathroom for a while before going down to the shop.
It was strange to see her chest glow just like his, and every time he reached for the ring he'd bought to give to her, he hesitated. Everything was all messed up right now, what with Extremis not in his system. Tony felt like only half of what he'd been before. He was going to need to keep his hands busy somehow, so Tony pulled out his computer chair and ran his hand over the shorthand keyboard, making it light up as his fingers quickly skirted over the keys as he started to type just to see what his idle brain would come up with.
