    Bookmarker's Notes

    “The Battle of Manhattan validated S.H.I.E.L.D.’s charter but their research called the invasion down on our heads and they managed to field six individuals against an alien armada. The Earth got lucky: The Invasion arrived through a small door and the six of us managed to slam that door closed. Next time we have to do better. And that’s why I asked you here.”

    Dr. Selvig put up his hand, “I’m counting seven, it’s a small improvement from six but…”

    “Well if you’ve got suggestions, the more the merrier,” Tony declared. He nodded to Rhodey, “Colonel Rhodes will be serving as a liaison between our group and the U.S. Military- We can all thank Dr. Ross and her restraining order for the Military’s other go-to guy for these things being kept far, far away. Someone not graced with the last name Stark can try reaching out to Hank Pym… Maybe he can pretend I’m not involved for the sake of the planet.”

    “What about the other Avengers?” Dr. Cho asked.

    “Thor is off planet, the other three are working with S.H.I.E.L.D. and a big part of why I’m doing this is because I am not comfortable with S.H.I.E.L.D.’s standard operating procedures,” Tony replied. Then he shrugged, “Also when I breached the subject with my colleagues from the previous invasion I was told, ‘Every time someone tries to win a war before it starts, innocent people die.’ My opinion that the war has already started, that an armada like the one I saw on the other side of the wormhole in New York doesn’t just evaporate because you slam the door in their face, was dismissed as paranoia.

    “Look, I’m an engineer, so are several of you, you know how to do risk analysis. If I’m right, if the Chitauri make another attack and we do nothing to prepare for it there is a high likelihood that the outcome for the Earth will be very bad. They have seen what we can currently field in defense of the planet and it’s likely that if they come back they’ll come back prepared to deal with that. If I’m wrong, if Thor was wrong to say that S.H.I.E.L.D.’s work with the Tesseract was like setting up a beacon proclaiming that the Earth is worth conquering, if the Chitauri never come back and no other unfriendly aliens come knocking… Well then we’ve wasted our time effort… Although I don’t know that improvements in space travel, which are almost an inevitable side effect of the sorts of projects we’d be working on could ever be considered a complete loss.”

    A/N:

    Chapter 9:

    Props for the Rosehill Sheriff. Shady-Lady grabs Tony and puts cuffs on him. The Sheriff asks what she thinks she’s doing and she flashes a badge (like any good S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent would) but he does NOT back down. He wants verification before he’s going to stand by while she grabs a guy off the street for no apparent reason. This is not the way things are done, the arrest looks wrong and he isn’t interested in people being disappeared from his town, even if they’re a complete stranger whom he doesn’t recognize as a celebrity hero and has no reason to protect other than it’s his job and it’s the right thing to do. Sure he get killed for his trouble but nameless law-enforcement person upheld the spirit of his duties and gave Tony the opening needed to escape, instead of being represented as useless, brainless or a thug.

    Chapter 10:

    I’m very tempted to do the whole “We’ve got a connection” scene. But despite Tony being an asshole and Harley being a manipulative brat, I think they are communicating perfectly. Tony is trying his hand at responsible adulting and refusing to put Harley in even more danger. Harley is being a kid and wants Tony to take him anyway. Tony gives Harley something else to do, which is important, but gets him off the frontline, Harley accepts it.

    Similarly Tony’s mildly manipulative with Cameraman Greg- Not that it takes much with a fanboy… Just ask Steve how hard it is to talk Sam Wilson into things.

    Funny how the MCU treats someone fanboying over Tony as a joke but when Scott and Sam fanboy over Captain America they’re not depicted as a pathetic/creep stalkers- Well, Scott, just a tiny bit, but nothing compared to Gary. Also Tony didn’t ask Gary to break any laws or risk his life... but then Tony’s more conscious of celebrity status which, somehow, makes him a worse person because Steve isn’t aware of how he abuses his influence. -Anyway both parties clearly communicated what they wanted and Tony didn’t really take that much advantage of Gary being a fan, comparatively speaking.
