my heart is sort of breaking right now.
..i wonder how tony will react to this, or if Jarvis will slip out before he wakes and then
continue to do this silent secret vigil.
Please continue, though i'm not sure what else you could add.

Oh, that's good. Great characterization, and I love seeing it from the perspective of JARVIS.

It's a cold solace at best, absolutely amazing. There's so much in that single phrase and you've captured exactly what he would have been going through with perfect characterization. It's nice to see a fic depicting thus scene. I really didn't like the movie. So many disappointing aspects which seemed rushed and unanswered. I like that you did this scene.

Cannot fulfil its purpose to protect him without anything to protect him from...wow...amazing. so eloquent and fluid. Perfect writing!

This is so good. I hope you know that, the writing is fantastic and this scene made so so angry. She seems like such a high maintenance woman. Did she not recall his traumatic confession only hours ago about nightmares!?

K, i dont think the author is being hard on Pepper. After all, it is admitted that the Mk42 made an error and that Jarvis gets her upset. Also, nobody is saying that Tony is the perfect boyfriend or expecting Pepper to be the perfect girlfriend. Perfect is unrealistic.
However in counter to your list of complaints, "strawberries" (not in a relationship at the time), "skipping date" (he forgets a lot when working, we all know that), "giant bunny" (he gave her his company, Pepper can have virtually anything, so really what material present can she possibly need, not to mention Tony's clearly got no idea how to interact with humans), "not catching Pepper" (he would have had she let go before the house blew up he put the armor on her leaving himself uprotected in a collapsing house?), and "leaving her on the roof" (he just found out that weapons he designed were being sold to terrorists and being used to slaughter civilians. Are you saying he should have let those people die to bring her back a drink?).
No, the problem here (just like in the comics) is that Tony's fatal flaw is that he doesn't know how to open up to people when he needs help. Finally in IM3, for the first time he does, and instead of acknowledging that huge step and the humility that asking for help requires, the person he reached out to walked out on him.
No-one would deny that Tony suffers from PTSD though he'd never admit it, and if you care for a person, you don't walk out on them while they are having a panic attack, especially when they have finally made a plea for help.
So yea, we can see Pepper being angry and freaking out, we can see her demanding that Tony shut 'that thing' down or lock it up or something like that. But marching off while he's begging her to stay, and leaving it that way? uh-uh.
And no, he couldnt follow her, It was clear that location wasnt the issue, she didn't want to be around him. just my 2 cents

This is a very touching story between Jarvis and Tony, but I think you're being a little hard on Pepper. Tony is not the perfect boyfriend (ex:strawberries/skipping date night/giant bunny/not catching Pepper/leaving her on the roof) but we always forgive him. He is human. Its what we love about Tony, but we don't treat Pepper with the same leeway. I think sometimes people give Pepper too hard a time. In this instance the suit turned on her in her own home. She was angry, and I don't think its inappropriate of her to put her own needs first sometimes. Tony is a grown man, its not the first time he had a nightmare. I'm sure he could last one night without Pepper next to him. (Or he could follow her downstairs) Just my 2 cents. Of course everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
