    Summary

    Jessica Jones has many flaws and fears. Her short fuse has her storming into the midst of the Battle of New York; her paranoia has her keeping the Avengers at arms' length. But she isn't the only one dealing with paranoia and PTSD. Tony Stark seems to be spiralling in Stark Tower all alone, and sometimes Jessica just gives a damn.

    Pain flares in Tony's jaw when his teeth grind together. One hand curls into a fist on the desk and his knuckles turn white from the force of it. "You are a tremendously difficult person to have any kind of relationship with, you know that?" he bites out, his voice cold and devoid of any hint of playfulness he'd normally be able to employ.

    "So stop trying," Jessica retorts emphatically.

    Tony's chin drops to his chest and he heaves a sigh, his brow furrowing. Through the haze of his anger, the rearing head of nauseating guilt, he has a sharp moment of clarity. "You'll seriously hit as low as you can just to put people off, huh?"
