Another livestream drawing! Tony and Bruce trying to do science but getting interrupted by Jigglypuff, who does not appreciate Tony taking away Bruce’s attention. Porygon Z just watches…..
“So you’re reconfiguring the view-screen?” Bruce asks as Tony unscrews the casing to the helmet. They’ve been going through ideas for the new suit for a while now, jotting down ideas and working on new specifications as they go.
“I hoping to, I’ve got bored of the old— Hey!” Tony yells as a pink fluffy ball bounces onto Bruce’s back and starts wailing, pounding her tiny hands on his shoulders.
Bruce is so used to the feeling of Jigglypuff jumping on his back, he doesn’t seem phased. He struggles to pull her off and by the time he does, she’s crying loudly and refusing to look at him.
“Excuse me for a sec,” Bruce says to Tony who shrugs in bemusement. He carries the pink Pokémon out of the lab and into the quiet corridor. Crouching down in front of her, he strokes her fondly. She’s stopped crying but she looks angry.
“Jigglypuff,” he says gently. She makes a ‘Hmph!” voice and turns away. “Come on now… Tell me what’s wrong.”
She turns her face up to the point of straining just so she isn’t looking at him.
“Was I ignoring you?”
Jigglypuff’s face softens for a moment, then she sniffs and looks away once more.
“I’m sorry, Jiggly. You know I didn’t mean to. Tony is really very nice and he wants help with his projects. I’m sure you’ll like him if you give him a chance. “
“Jiggly…” she says quietly, and finally looks up at him with her huge blue eyes. People don’t apologise to her - they usually tell her to get lost if she’s going to act up all the time.
“How about we back and you can sit next to me as I work instead?”
Bruce grins as she squeals in delight at this compromise and holds out his arms so she can jump at him for a hug.
“Listen. You’re one of the the most important members of the team. You put the Hulk to sleep when it’s necessary, so people don’t get hurt. And beyond that, Hulk likes you because you make him happy. I will never thank you enough for it. If you need me to pay more attention to you, I’ll do it.”
Bruce puts Jigglypuff on his back as he walks back to the lab.
“Sorry about that,” Bruce says casually.
“S’alright,” Tony shrugs. “It’s better than when you throw a tantrum and it’s a national emergency.”
Bruce just laughs and they get back to looking over the new specs. Jigglypuff is quiet and smiling for the entire afternoon.
