DUM-E
Title: A Few Manly Tears
Author: Del Rion (delrion.mail (at) gmail.com)
Fandom: Iron Man (MCU)
Timeline: between ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Iron Man 2’
Genre: Drama, family
Rating: K+ / FRC / PG
Characters: Happy Hogan, J.A.R.V.I.S., Pepper Potts, James “Rhodey” Rhodes, Tony Stark (Iron Man), Tony’s bots (DUM-E and U)
Summary: Busy people like to relax with their family. Tony Stark is a busy man, through and through, and tonight his ‘family’ consists of the bots – mainly because everyone else was unavailable. It’s also appropriate to pick a movie that pertains to the interests of the crowd, and Tony shouldn’t be blamed for getting invested in the story.
Complete. Part of “Genius, AI & Bots” series.
Warnings: Tear-jerker scene, abandonment issues and alcoholic beverages (plus relentlessly teasing friends).


Teaser:

“Now… you won’t understand the reasons, but… I have… I have to leave you here.”

“When will you come back for me?”

“I’m not, David. You’ll have to be here by yourself.”

“Alone?”
