#I feel like this is something Pepper would say or has said to him. #Kind of in vain though. Tony will never stop blaming himself for the events in his past.
I bet she’s said it a million times, and they’d both play it off like it’s a joke and doesn’t mean much. But their small, rare smiles that linger as she turns to leave prove to each other the real meaning behind it all. <3

“Pepper, stop putting all of your time into the company. You have a life besides work.”
“I’ll stop that once you stop being so hard on yourself for things that were entirely out of your hands.”
Practically the little habits that define them ;)
Oh yes. They’d rag on each other as if what she said wasn’t serious. But there would be that moment, that pause and he’d smirk and she’d just barely smile. That moment of silence that says it all before she nods and says, “Will that be all, Mr. Stark?”
There is just nothing out there that beats the post IM/pre IM2 UST between Tony And Pepper. It is quite simply, perfection.
