I really, really like this.
You catch perfectly the sheer helpless terror of being on either end of such a situation, at the mercy of faceless and unpredictable enemies. The fact that this time it’s Pepper who’s trapped and Tony who’s waiting (knowing the possibilities only too intimately), makes a neat parallel, with the addition of the horrible additional fear that she might be facing purposed torture because of who /he/ is – something of which the reader too remains uncertain. Very effective.
I can see the situation playing out just like this – right the way down to the tiny gestures you put in like Happy placing his cutlery just so.
I particularly like that this time it’s Pepper who rescues herself, an inversion of the common plot device demonstrating beautifully why it’s not necessary to provide knight and damsel for the storyline to work - it takes nothing from Tony that she gets herself free, doesn’t change his feelings or reactions or what he’s willing to do about them, and of all the stresses on them, the fact that she successfully acts to save herself (repeatedly) isn’t one of them.
Pepper is both impressive and believable in her reactions, as well as being in character; her sense in the face of terror, courage to act and will to survive, are admirable whether it shows in recognising the meaning of a camera light going off, literally cobbling together shoes, or throwing a sheet over a gunman’s head.
I also appreciate how you allow the aftermath to be as important as the actual experience, even before the presence of the remaining kidnapper starts to wind the tension up again. It’s their interactions /afterward/ that lead to both Tony and Pepper being able to move forward.
The reunion scene was beautifully done, moving and believable, setting up the possibilities without forcing them, and allowing the later testing and trust between them to ring true – she to break down, he to speak.
Beautifully written and touchingly real, thanks for the read.

Would I be a horrible person for saying I'm glad it wasn't him? Cuz now Tony gets to save her like I very much wanted him too. And gah can you guys move any slower torward each other? It's so painful to watch.
