Okay, so three posts in one day, and unexpected ficlet is unexpected, but there you go.

Summary: Bruce Banner is really, really mad. He is!
Notes: This is bit of a companion piece to my ficlet 'What's Rule Number One?' and contains spoilers for IM III.

===============


Spoilers for IM III, so complete notes and the fic is below the cut. )

Part the last! I think this is the fastest I've ever completed a long fic -- you didn't have to wait three years for this one :D

I hope you enjoyed it!

Now that we're to the end of Iron Man II, we're in Tony/Pepper territory, if you recall the scene with them on the rooftop at the end of the movie. I'm not much of a shippy writer, so I hope I do the pairing justice in this part. I'm also happy you introduce you to Agents Yang and Bandopadhyay in this final part. Hey, what's a few more OCs?

Part Eight


Stark Expo ~ Flushing, New Jersey

"So why exactly am I being punished?" Charlotte asked plaintively.

They were in the VIP lounge of the main auditorium, watching the crowd file in for the presentation Justin Hammer was scheduled to make. Charlotte's presentation, which had been set for the beginning of the evening, was now to be after Hammer's.

Pepper squeezed her shoulder sympathetically. )

The moment I've been waiting for - Tony finds out Charlotte knew Howard. Of course, I didn't know she did, not till Captain America came out, with the inclusion of Howard, which ran smack into our already established WWII history for Charlotte and Ezra. So not really her fault, you know? We'll blame Nick Fury for this one :D Again, a much longer part than initially intended - hope you don't mind!

Chapter Seven

Charlotte had found a—relatively—quiet corner of the deck to compose herself. This area was off limits to party goers, not far from Tony's master suite. She leaned over the railing, looking down at the cliffs and ocean below, letting the pull of the surf mesmerize her.

"No jumping," Methos called from behind her.

"Just once?" she asked, looking over her shoulder, managing a weak smile.

"Yes, well, maybe just once," he said, stopping next to her and putting an arm around her waist. )

This chapter is a bit of a long one, but I hope it's worth it. I'm really pleased at how it turned out, and hope you enjoy reading it.

Chapter Six

As they neared the end of the long winding driveway, Charlotte checked her 'Jarvis-phone' one last time for messages. As she started to put it in her evening bag, the AI's voice issued from the car's stereo speakers. "Madam, Mr. Stark requests your presence in his suite."

"You've got to be kidding me!"

"Indeed not, madam," Jarvis replied. "He was quite insistent."

She shook her head at the facetious note in Jarvis' response—he seemed more real to her some days than actual flesh and blood people she knew. )

So this has grown by a chapter, in part due to an extra deleted scene included in the Phase One set for Iron Man II, and Joe Dawson walking in. If they'll all stop being so chatty, maybe this will be six chapters, but if the don't, I can see seven :D

Chapter Five

"Wasn't that something?" Joe Dawson jerked a thumb towards the flatscreen TV on the far wall of the saloon. The twenty-four hour news channel had just finished replaying, for what seemed like the hundredth time, Tony Stark's 'statement' last night from the deck of his Malibu home to the news helicopter hovering overhead.

Charlotte looked up briefly, the little lines of stress around her eyes fighting with the fatigue that weighted down her shoulders for dominance. )

The Founding Fathers seem to have become a totally unintentional theme in this story. Go figure. Though I have to say, the comparison between Ben Franklin and Tony tickled me!

Please let me know how you're liking the story -- comments make me giddy :)

Chapter Four

San Luis Obispo, California

"Faster this time," Charlotte instructed her student. Nodding, Jacob raised his sword, preparing for the next bout.

Jacob Tanimura, a former Marine, had shown up on Charlotte's doorstep a few weeks before for a job interview. The new Immortal barely knew what he was, and had no teacher, so Charlotte had not only hired him, but had taken him on as a student. )

Chapter Three

The adrenaline pumping through her body made her feel almost ill. She was the one used to fighting for her life; having to watch her mortal best friend battle an enemy in the middle of a Monte Carlo street was not part of the deal. )

Chapter Notes: First off, some of you may recognize the beginning of this chapter. Last year, I wrote a ficlet, 'Starting Over', that actually takes place between the end of chapter one and the beginning of chapter two. It seemed to make sense to actually make it a part of this story. Second, this section incorporates dialogue from the movie, and I haven't done anything similar since I was writing Forever Knight fic, so I hope this is a successful attempt! And three, thanks for reading!

Chapter Two

San Luis Obispo, California

"Can I come in?"

Methos nodded at his unexpected guest, pulling the door wider, letting Tony Stark into the house. "Charlotte's not here," he began, only to shake his head. "But you know that since she's in L.A. – where you're supposed to be."

"Yeah, I thought we could talk," Tony said as he followed Methos down the hall towards the kitchen.

"Did you now?" He looked at the other man speculatively. "And what exactly do you think we think we should talk about?"

Entering the kitchen, Methos went to the fridge, pulling out two beers, handing one to Tony. )

I'm more than 5000 words into this, so decided to start posting since it's nearing completion. Just not sure how many parts it'll be broken into quite yet - 4, or maybe 5. With Iron Man III fast approaching, I really felt the urge to get this arc wrapped up.

I must have watched the scene in Monaco with Justin Hammer about 15 times to try and get the dialogue right. This is my first attempt writing a story set during a movie, so I hope you enjoy it!

Chapter One

Stark Expo ~ Flushing, New Jersey

"Well that was an entrance," Charlotte Sparrow observed wryly as she walked towards her friend backstage. Tony Stark had just opened the Stark Expo, and a Disneyesque video of his late father, Howard, had just finished. There were people scurrying to and fro, the area a hive of activity. "Phoenix metaphor? Really?"

He gave her a crooked smile. )
