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.

    A blended universe written at the perfect level of abstraction; by letting the reader fill in the blanks it's more engaging than if everything had been spelled out.


    She’s hallucinating again. “Go fuck yourself.”

    “I’m not Howard,” says the hallucination that looks a hell of a lot like the way her old man must have looked in his younger years.

    “Don’t care. Fuck off.”

    Because when today seems ok much to bear all you can do is hope (and work towards) a better tomorrow...


    There’s a kid who’s basically using Tony’s money to keep him in food and coffee while he attempts to solve one of the millennium problems. There’s a team who’s sequencing genes and might very well cure cancer within five years. There’s a group that’s redesigning airplane engines for fuel efficiency.

    And then there’s these kids...

    If there were a god of Badass Secret Agents, it would be Phil Coulson.


    “You are Agent Philip Coulson,” Sitwell intoned seriously, “God of the Badass Secret Agents. All hail Agent Coulson.”

    Phil blinked once. “I’m what?”

    Sitwell finally cracked a grin. It was more of a smirk, really.

    “Agent Coulson, man’s man, man about town, agent among agents,” he droned. “Most badass agent SHIELD has ever seen. Once killed a man armed only with his favourite pen...

    ... Some say that he is the reason Fury is missing an eye… and Fury hired him on that basis.” Sitwell lost the impressive voice. “So clearly, you are a god among secret agents,” he finished reasonably.

    “It was a nice pen,” said Phil, because he couldn’t think of anything else to say. Stabbing that arms dealer in the neck with it had ruined the nib forever. “Did you steal that last bit from Top Gear?”

    “It seemed to fit,” Sitwell admitted. “Also, Coulson? Move on from the fucking pen, I don’t care if it was a limited edition Parker that you fell in love with on sight, it was three years ago. It perished in the line of duty. Let the pen go.”

    The letter is short and to the point, written in an elegant hand on heavy stationery. Peggy is in awe. She never thought that Maria would ever do it. She's taken Tony and left Howard.

    Paris je t'aime, unknown arrondissement, featuring the Stark Family.


    She leaves a message for him, making very clear that she left under her own will.

    They do not hide - what would be the point of hiding from one of the richest men in the world?

    Loosing a child.


    Somewhere along the way, Tony's silly little "daddy loves you" comments had stopped being a joke and morphed into something so real that it ached, and now he was left wondering when he had last said something like that to the AI. Had JARVIS known what he meant to Tony? Had he had any idea?

    And now Tony would never be able to say it again, because JARVIS was gone and it seemed no one else cared. Tony had lost his child and no one had even noticed.
