video feed - open

[the feed turns on to show a skyscraper in the middle of New York city ... the name emblazoned at the top is just visible in the evening dark, but slowly lights begin to come on from the ground up, in sections. chunks of floor light up, and finally the name itself flickers on:

STARK]


[the feed swerves, and pans, and anyone paying attention can see Tony in his Iron Man suit orbiting the building. Pepper's voice comes over the feed, breathless, nervous as hell:]
How does it look?

[for his part, Tony sounds far more confident and assured. in other words: he sounds like Tony] Like Christmas ... but with more ... me.

We've gotta go wider on the public awareness campaign, you need to do some press. I'm in DC tomorrow, I'm working on the zoning for the next two buildings --

Pepper, you're killing me with the moment. Remember? Enjoy the moment?


Then get in here and I will.

[Tony lands on an overhanging balcony built off the side of Stark Tower. As he walks, really incredibly badass and impressive machinery pops up out of the floor and starts removing the suit for him. he doesn't even break stride or pause, not even when Jarvis speaks up]

Sir, Agent Coulson of SHIELD is on the line.

I'm not in. [he smirks as the apparatus removes his helmet] - I'm actually out.

Sir, I'm afraid he's insisting.

Grow a spine, Jarvis - I gotta date. [he steps out of the last of the suit and strides into the penthouse suite, where two stunning things are waiting for him: a view of the Empire State Building up close and personal, and Pepper Potts, standing in some very short cutoff jean shorts in front of one of the tower's many holoscreens.]

Levels are holding steady - I think. [she bites her lip nervously as she scrolls through the figures]

Of course they are, I was directly involved. Which brings me to my next question - how does it feel to be a genius?

Well, ha. I really wouldn't know, now, would I?


What are you talking about? All this ... came from you.

No. All this ... came from that. [she taps his arc reactor with a fond smile]

Give yourself some credit. Please. Stark Tower is your baby. Give yourself some credit. Give yourself ... twelve percent of the credit.

Twelve percent.

An argument can be made for fifteen!


TWELVE percent? Of MY baby?
[she moves away from him to a couch, where a champagne bottle and flutes are waiting. as they banter, she opens it and pours out two flutes]

Well, I did all the heavy lifting. Literally. I lifted the heavy things. And sorry, but - the - security snafu? That was on you.


Ohh--

My private elevator -


- you mean OUR elevator?


It was teeming with sweaty workmen.


[a Look is exchanged, the sort of which any man who has ever been even marginally whipped knows quite well]

I'm gonna pay for that comment about percentages in some ... subtle way later, aren't I.
[Tony makes a face as he takes his champagne]

Not that subtle.

Tell you what. Next building is gonna say Potts on the side.


On the lease.

[just before their flutes clink, Tony draws his back with a wince] Call your mom, can you bunk over?

Sir, the telephone. I'm afraid my protocols have been overridden.

UHH.

Mr. Stark. We need to talk.

[Tony picks up his phone, Coulson's portrait clearly visible on the ID screen, and turns it on, blandly]
You have reached theeeee life model decoy ... of Tony Stark. Please leave a message.

This is urgent.

Then leave it urgently.


[as Pepper tries to laugh her ass off as silently as possible, the elevator doors slide open behind them, revealing a VERY unimpressed Agent Coulson. Tony drops his phone, not even skipping a beat]

Security breach.

Phil!

[personal profile] notmyfirstrodeo 2012-11-11 04:21 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh he's pleased to see her too, but there's a tenseness about him. Definite tenseness. But in all honesty, there's not much that lets on to this fact. Business as usual face on.

File in hand, it's off the elevator and he nods, at Pepper, sparing a smile, before glancing towards Tony a moment too. Yup. Business.]
I can't stay.

[this may come as a surprise but seriously the "top secret" part of this top secret boyband really isn't working out for you.]

Should I be flattered that you're all going to this much work over me?

It won't be enough, you realize.

That's a lot of self confidence. But you're wrong.

...Think it's big enough? [ So. So. So dry. ]
ms_potts: (Yes - I AM right.)

[personal profile] ms_potts 2012-11-12 03:04 am (UTC)(link)
It's large enough to fit all of the facilities we've got planned for it. It also serves as an example of how large a building can be run using this technology.

[Practicing her PR pitch? ... maybe]
hulk: (Painters have lost their eyesight.)

[personal profile] hulk 2012-11-12 07:00 am (UTC)(link)
The technology being the, uh. The glowing thing in Mr. Stark's chest.

[ A beat and the sound of certain vid feeds rewinding and. wait a minute. ]

...Is that an arc reactor?
