Epilogue One – Tony Stark

New York

 

“I am sorry,” JARVIS replied, sounding disappointed in himself, “but I am unable to regain access to the unknown mainframe I discovered.”

Tony reared his chair back, the front legs leaving the floor.  His feet rested on his workbench, a pencil twirling between his dextrous fingers.  He didn’t actually use pencils in his work, but for some reason that one had been in his workbench drawer, and he’d been absently playing with it all day.

“It’s fine, J,” he answered, leaning his head against the back of the chair.  It really wasn’t, but at the same time it wasn’t JARVIS’s fault that he hadn’t been able to get into the system he’d back traced the Dalek information that SHIELD had passed along.

The Daleks had left abruptly, and then the planet had been unceremoniously put back where it had belonged.  He hadn’t even had a chance to test a couple of the ideas he’d come up with based on that research, but he’d keep working on things.  After all, Agent Coulson had been polite about it, and had provided such interesting information.

Tony had been a bit surprised that there hadn’t been any sort of instability in the solar system from the planet being snatched away, but then he wasn’t that sort of scientist and didn’t have quite the interest in it.  If he’d felt up to it, he could have done some basic research into astrophysics and celestial systems, but it wasn’t worth his time at the moment.

No, he was far more interested in whoever had created the seemingly impenetrable mainframe at the other end of that information SHIELD had passed onto him.

Whoever it was, had intimate knowledge of an alien race that no one seemed to have gone up against before.  The only mentions of the Daleks on the internet had been on the wildest of conspiracy sites.  Tony had particularly enjoyed the ones where this weirdo alien called a Time Lord had been involved with sending the Daleks packing back in the 70’s.  Beyond unfounded rumour and boundless imagination, both he and JARVIS had batted a big, fat, goose egg.

It wasn’t going to stop him, however.

And, from the little that JARVIS had been able to discover, Tony figured he’d be taking a trip to Cardiff, Wales, coming up soon.
