Iron Man Gen Fiction: "Stranded" (Tony, Crack)  
Title: Stranded
Fandom: Iron Man Movie-verse
Author: HalfshellVenus
Characters: Tony (Gen, Crack)
Rating: PG
Summary: The robots are plotting...
Author's Notes: This was written for the 10-character 15-word fic meme, but I couldn't resist posting it up separately first. And no, it isn't 15 words.

x-x-x-x-x

"Jarvis!" Tony hollered, water dripping into his eyes as he tore the bathroom apart looking for a towel. "I know there was a towel here when I got into the shower—not to mention my clothes!"

"Sir?"

Tony tried the bathroom door, which was locked, and heard the telltale whirr of Butterfingers' wheels as it scooted out of the bedroom—probably clutching the goods in its sneaky, mechanical hands. Which meant the robots were in league together, conspiring against him, though he couldn't imagine their larger goal. Maybe Jarvis was just a pervert.

"Jarvis!" he yelled again, rattling the doorknob as uselessly as before. God only knew what else the robots were doing out there—probably TP-ing the inside of the house.

He scrubbed his hands over his face, thought about rolling himself dry on the carpet. It was his own damn fault the robots had gotten loose. He should have never run that elevator all the way down to the basement.

I am cracking up at this moreso than usual, cause I was rewatching last night, and giggling when he warned the robot about "extinguishing" him and then I felt sorry for it when it sort of whimpered and lowered it's "body".

I love that poor, misguided robot-- and the scenes with it.

First, the one where Tony blasts himself off for the first time right into the wall, then slides down in disgrace, and Dummy blasts him with the extinguisher as an afterthought. \o/

Then, the "If you blast me with that one more time and I'm not actually on fire, I'm donating you to a Junior College." Bwee!

I do feel a little sorry for Dummy and Butterfingers ("No, that's not it. You're really no help at all are you? Just... move out of the way.")

Glad you enjoyed this! And I think the robots have earned a little prankage by now. ;)

And also "You...are a tragedy" to Butterfingers (I think).

Even though we know they can't be affected by what he says, don't you feel bad for them all the same?
Vikgolden_helikaon on December 13th, 2009 07:19 am (UTC)
I do feel bad for them, especially Dummy when he makes that little noise and his 'head' goes down after being told off.

Awww. :(

I still remember R2D2's sad noises from the original Star Wars movies-- they were heartbreaking. Made me want to kick C3PO but good.

They're so cute though, you can't help but feel bad for them when others tell them off. Same with Marvin from Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Haha, love Tony and his robots.

Do you know of anymore fics involving Tony and his robots?
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: IronManhalfshellvenus on December 13th, 2009 07:21 am (UTC)
Glad you liked this!

There are interludes with the robots in my longer Tony/Rhodey slash arc, but you may not be looking for slash.

It's funny-- I haven't read any that primarily feature Tony and the robots, but you'd think there would be some, just because of the potential for humor!
Vikgolden_helikaon on December 13th, 2009 07:22 am (UTC)
I love slash, so I'll be having a look at those fics :P

But yeah, you would think there would be more involving Tony and his relationship with his robots. I've read one other, something abour Jarvis learning how to snark at Tony.

He seems to know pretty darn well by now! Which I find hilarious, because Tony has created Jarvis in his own image far more than he probably meant to. ;)

**giggles** Nice little study break, that is. :-) Thankies.

You're welcome! I hope it gave you a good lift. :D

*giggles* poor tony.

Poor robots - I bet they're planning a nice surprise, not the nefarious plots Tony is thinking.

:-)

:D There's no way to be sure. I don't think Butterfingers and Dummy have the slightest idea what's going on, and Jarvis is more likely to be trying to get Tony's goat.

I firmly believe Jarvis would be capable of lying, if he had to, which is supposed to be nearly impossible for an Artificial Intelligence to do! Though given that Tony's given him the skills to be sarcastic... ;)
