CodenameCarrot

A green bath with a mortician window; a lady is facing away fom the viewer, naked except for a cloth slug low around her hips. Perhaps she'll enter the bath, perhaps she's just an attendant, preparing the room for a future bather.

    Summary

    FRIDAY was made by Tony Stark to be helpful and to assist JARVIS. With her predecessor gone, she's floundering to fill a role she was never meant to have. Her creator only calls on her when he's forced to, limiting her usefulness and engaging with her, for the most part, only when he uses the Iron Man suit. She's learned to accept that, even if she doesn't like it. The arrival of Captain Rogers and his team has the potential to change that, if she's willing to let go of the expectations of Tony Stark.

    This story is Part 5 of a series but you don't need the other four stories to read this as a gem in it's own right. This is perhaps one of the most sorrowful takes on Friday I've ever read; and that includes include the ones where Tony is raising a her as "new child" after the death of Jarvis.


    "I didn't understand what 'AI' meant," [Searbent Barnes] finally whispered, only just loud enough for her to catch it. "I thought... Hydra, their computers were..."

    [...]

    "The computers Hydra had were like me." he finally whispered, straightening briefly before he leaned back against the wall, legs slowly stretching out. "We didn't think - we followed orders. I thought... I guess I thought you were... like that... too."

    "In some ways, Sergeant Barnes, I am." She didn't fight Tony Stark, after all. She didn't fight to grow. She kept herself small for him, and did only what few things he asked of her.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The writing stlye is perfectly suited to the story's contents - somehow both stark and rich, each scene illuminating a different piece of how Peter and Jessica fit together.


    Admittedly there was a certain poetic beauty to how they’d met: some skinhead cat-caller turned downright abusive, dun-dun, in swoops the Spider-Man, unbeknownst to her. It was an otherwise deserted alley, so she hadn’t thought twice about throwing the cat-caller in question into the lamp post across the street, only to discover after the fact that she had an audience.

    “Wow,” came a distinctly youthful voice from behind and above her. “That was the most badass thing I’ve ever seen. Like, I was all ready to get in there but you handled it — and like, wow — that was — the way you just threw him —?!”

    She’d humored him by letting him walk her to her apartment, answering only a few of the myriad questions he asked (“You’re a detective? That’s so cool!”).

    Just sweet and grown-up; in how we grow and change and life happens,but we can remember our young loves fondly, and occasionally have life-affairming sex with them when they drop back into our lives.


    The rear window rolls down with a soft whir, and there he is. Tony Stark. There are fine lines at the corners of his eyes now, and the barest streak of gray hair at his temples. He's outfitted in a suit that probably cost more than her monthly rent.May feels a momentary flush of embarrassment at the fact that she's wearing yoga pants and an oversized pink shirt blaring the slogan, "Cardio is Hardio". There's a dramatic purple bruise around his right eye, but all it does is make him look dangerous. And May has always had a soft spot for bad boys.

    Summary

    Jarvis needs a bro. Tony needs a clue-by-four.

    Dobby just needs some shawarma to go with his S.P.E.W. Some help freeing house-elves of before the wizards come back after the battle of New York would be nice, too.

    In which Dobby's voice is spot-on and Jarvis is like a house-elf.


    “Eh,” she said, as though she couldn’t figure out ... if she should even care. “Eh, it’s been stranger here. Hungry?” She reached inside the shop door and when her hand came out, it was holding a basket with some kind of meat inside a flat bread. “Shawarma.”

    Dobby shifted his carpetbag to reach for the basket of food, before drawing back sharply. “Dobby only has—“

    “No. Take shawarma and go. Shoo!”

    Dobby was a free elf. Dobby didn’t have to shoo.

    Dobby chose to listen to her and ate his shawarma two blocks away inside a broken Muggle postbox.

    A lovely Pepper-centric montage spanning from her hire through after the Civil War


    Pepper has spent ten years trying, in her head, to develop a means of coping with it when Tony says things that are frustrating, unreasonable, and in a few memorable cases, demonstrably insane. Gawking at him slack-jawed with a pounding sensation building behind her right eye has been the most regular, if not the most helpful.
