The Scale

THE PAIN SCALE

0 – Pain free.

1 – Pain is very mild, barely noticeable. Most of the time you don’t think about it.

2 – Minor pain. Annoying and may have occasional stronger twinges.

3 – Pain is noticeable and distracting, however, you can get used to it and adapt.

4 – Moderate…

Title: Solarium
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Violence, gore, extreme dysfunctional codependence, murder
Summary: If people would just stop making problems for Director Stark, Captain Rogers wouldn’t have to beat them to death. 

PLEASE note the idea is not mine — it comes from ironfries, via askjxc who suggested the premise in this comic.

***

Steve heaves a breath in and then a breath out, annoyed by the rattle of it in his throat. He swallows, calms himself, breathes again. It’s always worse when Tony’s been busy, the grate of everything on his nerves — the murky air of Manhattan, even the marginally cleaner air of Brooklyn, the voices of strangers, the way people dawdle and get in his path and make things difficult and distract Tony so that Steve gets less time with him, less attention, less quiet in his head.

It must be horrible, to suddenly have somethingskewered to your chest and moreover for that thing to glow so bright. i think Tony didn’t have any problem with brightness before, because he often slept with lights glaring around him but this, the arc reactor glows from within
so he couldn’t sleep for days after Afganishtan because of the light. so he mocks himself as a ‘walking flashlight and every head turns to me' and what a freak he is now, with a glowing device in his chest for every person to see!
 Laying down in his workshop’s floor at 3:28 AM, Tony bunches up the blanket to his chest, tries to cover the cursed light, ignoring Dummy’s concern wheer behind him and pretends there is no blue light radiating from his chest

It must of been terrifying when it was gone. After Afghanistan, after Obadiah, he gets used to it. It is his greatest weakness, and because he’s Tony stark, that means he shows it off like a trophy. He has nightmares about Obie taking it right out of his chest, but when he wakes up, it’s still there, a shining beacon telling him that he’s alive.
But then he gets it removed, and it’s good for him, except for when it’s not. The good news it that his chest is free of shrapnel. The bad news is that everything is too dark. His chest doesn’t shine through his shirts anymore, and he needs actual lights on to do things, and he doesn’t know what to do with that.
It’s 3:28 AM when he wakes up in a cold sweat from a dream of his heart being ripped from his chest, he’s gasping, nearly crying, eyes desperately searching for something, anything to tell him he’s safe. There is no light to reassure him. He struggles to remember where he is on his own.

Sometimes I’m so tired of having too many quirks and not enough normalcy. What is normalcy you ask, what the fuck is it, it’s offending to even use it as a concept.
But it just feels like my thoughts and needs are very complicated, and I wish there weren’t. Most of the time I’m just happy to be a peculiar human, and sometimes I want to hit my head against the wall for it.
Whyyy.
