Another day on ShitPit island and Brodie had the perfect place staked out. One couch in the rec room was currently home to about half of the comics that he'd found in the past week. Maybe something had finally knocked some fucking sense into the shelf, because it had been almost a goddamn WEEK of good finds. Fuck, but the shelf had actually given with the Green Lantern. Getting it to be generous with THAT shit was harder than Richard Simmons in a room full of big-titted men.

If there was something better than a generous bookshelf to be thankful for around this time of year, Brodie was having a hard time figuring out what.

Dixie cup filled to the brim with pineapple (and FAR THE FUCK AWAY from all things NOT drink-repellant), Brodie started to sort through his stash to weed out the good shit from the crap not worth using for toilet paper.

Karen hadn't been dwelling, not really, but there were some things she just needed an answer for, and only one person she was sure of who could provide that answer.

It was easier to go to Brodie than wander up to a guy and ask him if he was a superhero. That just led to people thinking you were crazy.

When she spotted Brodie she made her way over, and made space on the couch for herself before sitting down. No comics were harmed. "I have a comic-related question for you. Sort of."

It was probably a good thing that the shit Karen touched were the comics that he hadn't gotten a chance to go through yet. Cause if he found any fucking dings or tears, he would have known just who to look for.

"Actual comic book question or chick comic book question?" Brodie immediately asked, not bothering to specify what the hell that actually meant.

Date: 2008-11-28 09:28 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (seriously?)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
"What the hell does that mean?" Karen asked, but shook her head before Brodie could answer. She probably didn't want to know. "Actual comic book question concerning someone actually here. You know, like Rogue."

The implication being that Brodie could probably find a real comic book character from a mile away, and she didn't bother trying to hide it.

At first Brodie hoped Karen's question would be ABOUT Rogue. Specifically something about lesbians or something similar. Now THAT would have been something to be thankful for.

"Yeah, who?" He asked, setting aside a Batman issue with a ding on page 23.

Right in the middle of Catwoman's face, too.

"I met a Tony Stark," Karen said, getting right to it. "Last week. I didn't say anything because he looked like Robert Downey Jr and I didn't want to seem, you know, crazy. Do you know if he's really Iron Man?"

"Saw him crashland in the suit and everything," Brodie said, with a nod. He STILL hadn't gotten over how AMAZING that shit had been. And fuck, he was going to find a way to let him wear the thing. It wasn't like some OTHER superhero suits. For instance, there was no way in HELL he'd ask Superman or Batman to let him wear their costumes.

Kryptonian or not, Brodie wasn't about to put something on that had been rubbing against Kal-El's junk for fuck knows how long.

"He's the real fucking deal."

Date: 2008-11-28 09:45 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (self-satisfied.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
Karen's eyebrows rose when Brodie confirmed it, and maybe she was even a little jealous he got to see the suit, too. "Cool," she said, and grinned. "I promised him I'd get him to sing in public one day."

"Holy shit, tell me you're not joking." Brodie said, leaning toward Karen. At this rate, he was going to need to make friends with somebody with a video camera. Shit like this was far too priceless to NOT be chronicled, watched, and then rewatched multiple times.

...though Brodie wondered why Karen had specified the whole 'in public' part. Did that mean there was some shit happening IN PRIVATE that Brodie didn't know about?

That'd be about a million steps up from that fucking BEDSHEETS guy.

"I am one hundred percent telling the truth," she replied, trying not to look too smug. "He even agreed to the challenge himself. I'm thinking karaoke, but now that I know he actually is Iron Man, that changes things."

She thought about it for a second, though there really wasn't any question if she wanted Brodie to help out or not. Iron Man was not exactly her strong suit - pun intended - when it came to comics. "Wanna help?"

Date: 2008-11-28 10:07 am (UTC)

Iron Man doing karaoke. Somewhere, in some alternate future where he was actually dead and not immortal because of his excess of BADASS, Stan Lee was rolling over in his grave.

Or taking notes.

"Hell yeah," Brodie said, "What do you need me to do?"

He was about to suggest getting Tony drunk or some shit, but if he knew his comics (and he did), getting Iron Man to drink wasn't exactly difficult.

But for this, Brodie was willing to do just about anything. He could bang Pepper Potts if it would help out at all.

callofkaren: (shrug.)

"I don't know yet," Karen admitted, which was rare when it came to plotting things like this. It was just a little harder when you were talking about the Iron Man. "But I'll let you know as soon as I come up with a plan."

Date: 2008-11-28 10:26 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Brodie had been HONEST TO FUCKING GOD excited until that point. "Wait a second," Brodie asked, and leaned back in his seat again, "You don't even have a PLAN?"

This was NOT the kind of thing you could go into half-cocked. Though, he guessed that if she hadn't known that he was ACTUALLY Tony Stark, then coming up with shit to make some random Iron Man obsessed dickhead sing karaoke was a waste of time.

Date: 2008-11-28 10:32 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (oh please.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
"I said I was going to think of one," Karen replied, and resisted the urge to reach out and smack his arm. "I had to ask you first to be sure. This changes things. I mean, I could get him to sing that one Black Sabbath song, that starts out with Iron Man."

It would, in her own humble opinion, be amazing.

Brodie stared blankly at her for a long moment. Un-fucking-inspired. That's what THAT was. "Count me out if that's the only idea you come up with." He said.

But at the moment, he was torn. There was the chance for a fucking PRICELESS moment, where THE Iron Man could end up singing a goddamn MENUDO song in front of half the island, and then there was the fact that this was IRON MAN. He deserved some fucking RESPECT, didn't he? Fuck, but Brodie didn't want to be the one that Tony Stark went after the next morning when someone told him he'd done the little hairless Latin boy routine for everyone to see.

It was a dilemma, that was for sure.

Date: 2008-11-28 10:58 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (just a little wtf.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
Karen's hopeful look quickly turned into a glare. "It was a thought," she replied and sat back, picking up the first comic she could grab. Hey, Green Lantern. "I'm wide open for ideas if you have any."

Date: 2008-11-28 11:22 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Brodie shrugged, "Don't get pissed," He said, catching the glare. It was easy to spot; he'd gotten that same look from Rene ALL THE FUCKING TIME back home. "I'm just saying, the island already KNOWS he's Iron Man."

Most of the island probably did, anyway.

Date: 2008-11-28 11:31 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (not so sure about that.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
"I didn't," Karen pointed out, but she wasn't really pissed at Brodie. She knew she had to come up with a plan in the first place before they got into the good stuff like song choice.

Still. "I'm leaning toward something eighties."

Date: 2008-11-28 12:23 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
Brodie had come to the same conclusion. If there was no plan for actually getting him to DO it, then coming up with a song for him to actually sing was pointless.

"You know, you could always say you'll fuck him if he sings." He suggested.

Date: 2008-11-28 12:47 pm (UTC)
callofkaren: (mmhm.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
Karen considered the comic she was holding in her hands very carefully. It didn't seem to be any kind of extremely old or extremely rare editions, and even if it had, she would have considered it insult to injury.

She hit him with it.

Date: 2008-11-29 08:14 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"HEY." Brodie protested, both because he'd thought his idea was pretty goddamn good, THANK YOU, and because Karen had hit him with a comic that he hadn't yet gotten the chance to check out. And here, he'd thought that she had the LEAST bit of respect.

Bloody savage.

"It's not like you were coming up with anything BETTER."

Date: 2008-11-29 11:57 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (bitch pls.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
"I am not whoring myself out, Brodie," Karen said, pointing at him with another comic she'd picked up. "I don't care if it's Iron Man or Batman or Superman himself."

Fat chance she'd let Superman anywhere near her, though. Not after that essay about how sex with him would probably kill you anyway.

Brodie immediately took the comic from her before she could do anymore damage. Jesus fucking Christ, what WAS it with her? It was like Karen was determined to ruin one of them before the conversation was over.

"These are COMICS, alright? Not ROLLED UP NEWSPAPERS." He said. "And he's TONY STARK, for godsakes. I bet old Bedsheets would give you a free pass."

Date: 2008-11-30 07:03 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (not a valley girl.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
Karen learned long ago that trying to get Brodie to stop using that stupid nickname for Nick was a futile cause, and now it just earned an eyeroll.

"How about you sleep with Iron Man, since you like the idea so much?"

Date: 2008-11-30 07:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
He made sure the comic that she'd thwapped him with was still in decent condition (it WAS, thank Stan Lee), and then shook his head.

"Sorry, Karen, but I'm pretty sure Tony Stark's not a fan of the cock."

Date: 2008-11-30 07:20 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (you're an idiot.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
"Brodie," Karen said slowly, "if Tony Stark's going to be gay anywhere, it's on this island. The ratio of gay to straight men is like, ten to one. If you wake up one day and tell me you're gay, I wouldn't be surprised."

Date: 2008-11-30 07:40 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"Fuck that." Brodie said, because no permanent island vacation was going to make stick some guy's dick anywhere near him appealing. He had no problem with guys who WERE all about the cock, but Brodie DEFINITELY wasn't one of them. And neither was the Tony Stark he'd known and read all these years.

"If you wake up one day and I tell you I'm gay, then there's probably some weird island shit going down. Only explanation."

Date: 2008-11-30 07:48 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (intriiiiguing.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
Karen knew that much; she didn't have to know Brodie long to know that he had so much testosterone it oozed out his ears. "What if you turned into a girl and realized you like guys?"

"Not gonna happen." Brodie said immediately. "I like tits too much."

Of course, that wasn't the ONLY reason, but Brodie figured it was a good enough answer for now.

Date: 2008-11-30 08:07 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (you don't say?)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
The conversation had totally gone off track, but Karen didn't really notice, or care. Now she was just determined to get one yes out of Brodie. "What if you woke up as Lara Croft? I'm pretty sure she isn't gay."

Date: 2008-11-30 08:15 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"LOOKING like Lara Croft, or ACTUALLY Lara Croft?" Brodie asked, because there was a distinction. "If it's the same island bullshit, then the answer's still no."

He'd been Rogue for a weekend before, and that didn't mean he was going around trolling for Cajun card charging dick for two days.

Date: 2008-11-30 10:10 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (fax what now?)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
"Being in her body, like when I was Han Solo," Karen cleared up. "Though I guess you're still straight if you're a woman and you like guys."

Date: 2008-11-30 10:17 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"So let me get this straight," Brodie said, and added the comic he was holding to the 'okay' stack. "You think if I woke up as that chick, that I'd pass up the chance to do ANOTHER chick for a shot at dick?"

Fuck, but Brodie would have NO problem being a lesbian in that case. Provided he could get his hands on a full length mirror to go over the bed.

Date: 2008-11-30 10:33 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (not so sure about that.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
"You're hopeless," Karen said, exasperated. Sometimes trying to get through to Brodie was like trying to talk to a brick wall. Or the end of Village of the Damned with Christopher Reeve and the creepy kids trying to get into his mind. Giving up was probably her best bet. "Did I tell you I met Lois Lane when I was Han?"

"NO." Brodie said, immediately kind of pissed off at Karen for not telling him about this shit sooner. The QUESTIONS he had for her! He had half a mind to go stash his comic stacks in his room and go off looking for her right this second.

"Why the fuck did you wait so long to tell me?"

Date: 2008-11-30 11:22 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (so i'm talking.)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
"Sorry," Karen shrugged. "The whole being Han Solo thing kinda distracted me at the time." It wasn't like she told Brodie everything, and besides, she'd been kind of weirded out dealing with how she'd found her hot.

Not that she was going to go admitting that to Brodie.

"She wasn't even the real Lois anyway, I think she was from that crappy Smallville show."

Date: 2008-11-30 11:41 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"SHOW?" Brodie asked, incredulous. Now he was starting to think that Karen was holding out on him. First, she hadn't told him about Lois Lane, and NOW there was some Smallville television show that had escaped his radar.

This was fucked up.

Date: 2008-11-30 11:55 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (hair!)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
Karen shook her head. As far as she was concerned, Smallville was not worthy of being counted - like Ben Affleck as Daredevil. "Remember how I keep telling you about the really crappy Fantastic Four movie? It's like that, but a TV show. They're all in high school, Lois isn't even there in the beginning."

Date: 2008-11-30 12:22 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"Lois didn't LIVE in Smallville," Brodie said, not quite seeing the crappy part of this yet. He was always up for a little bit of backstory, provided it didn't contradict the comic too much.

Date: 2008-11-30 12:36 pm (UTC)
callofkaren: (Default)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
"Yeah, I know." The sad part was that as crappy as Smallville was, Karen used to tune in whenever she was desperate enough to stave off her boredom. She knew a bit, but hadn't ever been masochistic enough to care when she missed the rest. "But she ended up living there, anyway. I don't remember why."

Date: 2008-12-01 06:59 am (UTC)
From: [identity profile]
"FUCK THAT." Brodie said. He was beginning to think that the world of comics had gone to hell after he'd ended up on the island. First there was that whole thing with Captain America, and now THIS shit.

"I'm getting fucking sick of these Joe Shuster wannabes thinking they can recreate comic mythology. FUCK THAT."

Date: 2008-12-02 11:50 am (UTC)
callofkaren: (Default)
From: [personal profile] callofkaren
Karne just shrugged and did her best to look innocent. "One day I'm going to find either the Fantastic Four or Daredevil movies and make you watch them. You'll be glad for even bad comic choices then."

Although the thought of someone trying to film Captain America's death and all the ways a movie like that could go horribly wrong made Karen want to shudder.
