    Summary

    [...] When damping is small, the resonant frequency is approximately equal to the natural frequency of the system, which is a frequency of unforced vibrations. [...] When designing objects, engineers must ensure the mechanical resonance frequencies of the component parts do not match driving vibrational frequencies of motors or other oscillating parts, a phenomenon known as resonance disaster.

    -- Resonance. (2013, June 12). Wikipedia.

    Steve must be able to read the horror on his face this time, because he leans in. "Tony, you're being controlled? If you can respond, blink twice."

    Tony tries, he tries, but the best he can manage is a sort of flutter.

    It starts from here....

    Summary

    All it took was the simplest touch to make their heart flutter, or break; to make their skin tingle and spark, or feel like its been scorched from the sun. It can be gentle, loving, or harsh. It was the most unexpected touches that brought out the most honest reactions.

    or

    Ten times Tony touched Pepper without asking and one time she touched him without asking.

    Summary

    They don’t talk about that night.

    It happened years ago when they were still Mr Stark and Miss Potts. It was something which at the time seemed to be one of Tony’s drunken whims; something to be forgotten immediately and never spoken of again.

    Except now it seems they might have to talk about it.

    My take on what happened after that Spider-Man: Homecoming scene, and what happened in 2008.

    Summary

    She doesn’t mention Obadiah, and the way she’d comfort him and he’d comfort her in return, when she still thought he cared for Tony’s safety; she doesn’t bring up the sleepless nights, spent hunched over her desk with her laptop and phone ready and on hand, waiting for news on him, whether or not he’s still alive, dreams of his death shaking her awake whenever she dozed off.
