Barbara groaned as she turned her head, seeing that she'd slept in for the nth time. She still felt groggy and as the red haired woman pulled herself out of bed she had to wonder if she wasn't spending too much time on the Carrier monitoring missions and mission data. Slipping into a pair of comfortable pants and pulling a t-shirt over her head. Barbara made her way over to the bathroom, brushing her teeth and taking care of her morning rituals before finally turning her mind to the thoughts of the day. Which mainly consisted of wondering what she wanted to have for breakfast and planning to head to the Carrier and scan for more leftover effects from the battle with Dr. Strangefate.

Halfway down the stairs the realization hit her and she froze in her tracks. Body shaking, Barbara collapsed in the stairwell, tears streaming down her face as she cupped her hand over her mouth. Unable to move from that spot the woman stayed where she was, staring down at herself.

golden_avenger: (Iron Man - Oh that)
From: [personal profile] golden_avenger
Landing on Barbara's balcony of Kord Tower, Iron Man sighed as he waited for her machines to get his clearance. Despite it taking less than a second, he felt inconvenienced. The boots of the Iron Man suit went from clanking on the cement of the balcony to softly thumping on the carpet of Barabara’s abode. "I may be uninvited, but I picked up breakfast from this quaint little mom and pop restaurant in Canada. Now I can't eat all of this by myself” the growl his stomach made said otherwise. “So I thought why not see if my favorite fellow tech nerd would share with me. Unless you ate breakfast already. In that case you can just watch me." calling out like that meant he didn't hear anything until he stopped talking.

Then he heard it. "Barbara?" he asked concerned. He dropped the bags holding the semi hot meal and he started to go into a sprint when he got to the stairs. "Oh god, are you okay? What happened?" he asked as he quickly went up the stairs, the helmet melting away so he could see her with his own eyes. Of course he had assumed she had fallen down the stairs. It seemed unlikely though considering how she managed to get around her place just fine.

“Easy, easy, I got you.” Said Tony as he shifted his arm so he was holding her back and put his other arm under her legs so he could lift her up, his suit completely receded so he was a simple white shirt and blue jeans without shoes. He began making his way to a nearby loveseat “You can hang out here for a minute and I can check to see if you hurt anything in the fall, find your chair and we can have breakfast if everything’s good.” He said trying to comfort her, he wasn’t used to seeing Barbara Gordon of all people be in tears. It must have been bad, had to have. “Why do you even have stairs?” he added as n afterthought.

Grabbing both to-go bags, Tony made his way back over to Barbara. “Do you know how often I get mistaken for that famous actor by the way? I mean I can kind of see it, but I don’t expect that to happen when I’m in Canada at a little restaurant ordering waffles and pancakes, you know?” he set the bags on the coffee table. “But then I tell them my name and it’s even a bigger deal-“

Tony froze while he was opening the bags, the smell of freshly made eggs, bacon, waffles and pancakes filled the room. “I didn’t put you like that.” he said in a defensive tone as he held up his hands innocently. “Did I? Did you-?” he scratched his head. “What just happened?”

“Everything is-“ Tony blinked a few times watch her moved her foot and wiggle her toes. Then the gravity of it all hit him and he went to lift her into the air. “That’s incredible! How does it feel?” he asked as he whirled her around in the air. Finally he set her on her feet just to see her stand. Stand on her own two feet with no support, railing, or assistive device. “When did it happen?”

Tony realized that was standing not even inches away from her and noticed she was looking just as sheepish as he was feeling. “And I brought breakfast.” He awkwardly announced again before he sat on the floor in front of the coffee table where the food was slowly getting colder. Leaning his back onto the couch he looked up at Barbara.

“So that’s how it felt.” He said before realizing that it wasn’t the best thing to say. “Come on, I’m famished. Haven’t had anything since my midnight snack.” Quickly he opened boxes of pancakes, waffles, hashbrowns, and eggs with bacon. “You know we’re going to have to look into it to see what caused this.” He said before shoveling half a pancake into his mouth. For the first time in Tony's life he was looking at a woman’s legs in a non-suggestive manner.

Mostly non-suggestive.

He washed down his pancake with a bottle of orange juice. As he was drinking he gave Barbara a questioning look as one of his eyebrows raised. "What do you mean? This just happened, you haven't even had time to analyze any of your tissue or make any x-rays." he said before cutting off a large portion of scrambled egg with his spork. "You didn't have any bouts with cosmic rays or made any infernal pacts with Mephisto right before I got here, did you?" he asked with amusement before his mouth was full yet again with food. "Those damned pacts never turn out good." he managed to say through the one cheek that wasn't stuff with food.

Tony's chewing slowed to almost a stop and he stared hard at Barbara for a long moment. Finally he swallowed his food and said "I don't remember any of that." he said finally. "I remember the carnival night, at least the early evening. I went to go fight her, but I don't remember it to well. I just remember sleeping so deep. That fight must have been a big one because it felt like I slept for week." then he quietly added. "I think I'm eating like it too." Opening the french toast box, Tony began eating again.

"So your paralysis was one of those self-corrections?"

"No, save it for lunch." said Tony as he closed the half empty box. Tony shifted so he was sitting cross legged and facing Barbara. "So what about my former self? What exactly am I missing? Why is this happening to me?" Squeezing his knee with his hands involuntarily, Tony took a deep breath. "Please tell me nothing did and it's all just in my head."

Relief rushed from Tony’s brain down his spine. One of the things that might have happened, one of the things he dreaded turned out not to be the case. He doubted he could handle finding out that he had done unspeakable things. The sight of Barbara walking snapped him back to the present. Not only because she was walking for the first time; well the first time since they met, but also so his eyes could enjoy the sight her body in motion. Particularly where her legs met her waist among other things.

When she came back, he had the same look about it him that he did when they had their first date. “I like to look.” He said hinting at a much deeper meaning in his words than what was simply stated, his smile wide and his eyes dubious.

Being incredibly flirtatious was in Tony's nature, but it was also something he retreated to when difficult situations arose, situations where he wasn't sure exactly what to do or how to feel. Not knowing what happened to him was enough to cause it, but now that he could be finding out about didn’t help with that anxiety. He gave Barbara a questionable smirk and strode through the portal to the Carrier. Despite having been there before it was still quite a sight to behold. "So what did I miss?" he asked nonchalantly, doing his best to mask his trepidation.

All Tony gave Barbara was an amused raised eyebrow. The last thing he was expecting to see was a stranger, or at least to him. Apparently Angie had been entertaining this guest in her off hours? Clearing his throat with a strong cough to bring the reason they were there back into focus, Tony headed over to the display monitors for the computers. "Always fun here on the Carrier, is it?" he asked jovially as he leaned his backside onto the large desk. "And me without popcorn." half of it was a joke, the other half was actually still hungry.

"Astound me." he challenged Barbara with a snide smirk. The look he gave her was nothing short of composed immaturity, especially with his now crossed arms.
