A/N Hello everyone! Sorry, this took sooo long to finish, life has the tendency to interrupt my creative flow.

The turtles in this story are the same as the ones from the previous stories, but if you're new, welcome! I suggest reading the previous stories, "I Am Not Stark Industries" and "I Am Not My Father". It'll help make things make sense.

Anyway, the turtles are the turtles from the recent movie.

Disclaimer: I own nothing other than my OCs. NO STEALING!

Chapter 1

After dad's big 'I'm dying' scare, he had a new building built. Guess where. New York fucking City! The city in which the guy I can't stop thinking about lives! Why don't I just go over his house? Well, what if I told you he's not necessarily human, and lives in the sewers? I was unlucky and lucky, at the same time, when I first found him and his family because they can't be seen or discovered.

His name is Donatello, and he's smart, funny, kind, honest….well you get the point. I really care about him, and when I stayed with him and his family we spent a lot of time together. He's the reason why I use Elek as an 'Iron Man' suit. Don did most of the thinking; shockingly. Both of us worked on re-programming and testing Elek. I left right after we finished

Right now, I was with Pepper while dad took the building off the grid.

'Good to go on this end. The rest is up to you two.' Dad finally spoke.

"Did you disconnected the transmission lines correctly this time?" I teased.

'Ha. Ha.' I could picture him rolling his eyes.

"Are we off the grid?" Pepper jumped in.

'Stark Tower is about to become a beacon of self-sustaining clean energy.'

"Well, assuming the arc reactor takes over and actually works."

I was standing at the controls getting ready to light up the building as I listened to Pepper and dad talk.

'I assume. Light her up.'

I pressed a few holographic buttons and waited to see if it worked.

"How does it look?" Pepper's excitement was radiating off onto me.

'Like Christmas, but with more me.'

"Wow, so you're saying the Tower looks like a giant Christmas tree?" I smirked.

'You bet.'

"We've gotta go wider on the public awareness campaign."

I groaned and flopped into the nearby desk chair.

"You need to do some press. That includes you, Bailey." Pepper looked back at me giving me the 'you are not getting out of this look'.

I pouted. I'll figure out something.

"I'm in DC tomorrow. I'm working on the zoning for the next three buildings."

Ugh, she was already talking about leaving? Dad's not going to like this. I kept my eyes on the levels making sure they stayed steady. Pepper stood behind me as an extra set of eyes

'Pepper, you're killing me. The moment, remember? Enjoy the moment.' Dad walked in.

"Levels are holding steady, I think." Pepper studied the screen.

"Of course they are. I was directly involved. Which brings me to my next question." Dad rustled my hair as he stood behind me with Pepper. "How does it feel to be a genius?"

I rolled my eyes.

"Well, I really wouldn't know, now would I?" Pepper smiled turning to dad.

"What do you mean? All this came from you." He can be such a suck up at times, but he's right. Pepper has the organization and the fire to start and stay with a project like this.

"No, all this came from that." She pointed to dad's arc reactor. She was right, too.

"Give yourself some credit. Please." He countered knowing technically, that was also true. My eyes were going back and forth as they talked, like I was watching a ping pong tournament. "Stark Tower is your baby." Dad put his hands down her arms until he reached her hands, and held onto them. "Give yourself 12% of the credit."

"12%?" Pepper gave him a serious look.

"An argument can be made for 15." Dad told her as she walked over to get them some drinks.

"12%? My baby?"

"Well, I did do all of the heavy lifting." Dad followed her. "Literally, I lifted the heavy things. And, sorry, but the security snafu? That was on you."

Oh great, here they go. I got up found Elek, who spotted me and turned into his backpack form, and started for the elevator. Jarvis started.

"Sir, the telephone. I'm afraid my protocols are being overridden."

I stopped as Agent Coulson's voice went through the phone. Dad picked it up.

'Mr. Stark, we need to talk."

"You have reached the life model decoy of Tony Stark. Please leave a message." He said in a monotone voice. I giggled.

'This is urgent.'

"Then leave it urgently."

Just then the elevator doors opened, revealing Coulson with the phone still to his ear. I looked over at dad.

"Security breach." He didn't sound shocked or threatened, which made me laugh harder. Then mumbled to Pepper. "It's on you."

Coulson put the phone down. "Mr. Stark."

"Phil! Come in." Pepper stood to greet him.

"Okay that's my cue to leave." I snuck past Phil, but he caught my arm leading back inside.

So close to freedom!

"Phil?" Dad was confused by the first name thing going on.

"I can't stay." Phil answered.

"Uh, his first name is 'Agent'." Dad followed Pepper pointing at Coulson.

"Come on in. We're celebrating." Pepper smiled.

"Which is why he can't stay." Dad mumbled again.

Good thing I was going out.

"We need you and your daughter to look this over as soon as possible." He handed dad a file.

"I don't like being handed things." Dad refused the file.

"That's fine, because I love being handed things." Pepper accepted the file and passed her drink to Coulson. "So, let's trade." Then she took dad's drink and gave him the file. "Thank you." She said as she took a sip.

Dad looked stumped then said. "Official consulting hours are between 8 and 5 every other Thursday."

"This isn't a consultation." Coulson countered.

"Is this about the Avengers?" Pepper asked.

Coulson's gaze snapped to hers.

"Which I know nothing about." She quickly added as dad walked away and I followed.

"The Avengers Initiative was scrapped, I thought. And I didn't even qualify." Dad started ranting about him not being accepted, but I was.

"I didn't know that either." Pepper added.

"Apparently I'm volatile, self-obsessed, don't play well with others."

"That I did know." Pepper nodded.

"This isn't about personality profiles anymore." Coulson said glancing over at me.

I caught something in his gaze saying, 'if we can't get EVERYONE, we're screwed.' "Dad, stop holding grudges about them saying 'no' to you." I persuaded.

"I don't hold grudges."

I rolled my eyes. "Yeah, yeah."

"Whatever. Ms. Potts, got a second?" Dad waved Pepper over. "You know I thought we were having a moment."

"I was having 12% of a moment." Pepper answered.

Dad stopped and pointed at her. "And you say I hold grudges."

"This seems serious. Phil's pretty shaken." Pepper glanced back at Coulson.

"How would you know if it's…Why is he 'Phil'?"

"What is all this?" Pepper tried distracting my obviously jealous dad.

"This is…this." We were then surrounded by all of the Avengers.

"I'm going to take the jet to DC tonight."

"Tomorrow." Dad argued.

She stared at the different videos and information. "You have homework. You have a lot of homework."

"Well, what if I didn't?"

"If you didn't?" She asked.

I headed towards Coulson as Pepper and dad argued. "It's the tesseract, isn't it? Someone found it?"

"His name is Loki."

"Thor's brother." I stated and received a confused look from Phil. "I've done research."

"We need everyone to defeat him. The Avengers are all we have left."

"I understand. Can you tell them I went out? I need to see if I can get in contact with the Hamatos, if I can't," I had to keep myself from breaking down, "it'll be S.H.I.E.L.D's problem."

"Sure."

I nodded my thanks and headed down the elevator. When the elevator stopped and a crowd of paparazzi surrounded me. I smiled at them, but ignored their questions as I kept walking out of the tower. Security had finally showed up, and I was down the block already. I had shorts on and a purple Stark Industries t-shirt with a grey sweatshirt. Yeah, ever since my last meeting with the guys, I've worn a lot of purple. The reason is obvious.

'How are we going to get in contact with them?' Elek asked me through our bond.

'We could try what we did the last time.' I answered silently.

'Throwing yourself into danger is not an option.' He growled.

'El, don't worry. I was joking. With my luck I'll get sliced open like a pizza pie, again. Recently, I found out that I hate hospitals.' I explained.

Elek was silent then spoke. 'I'm sorry I wasn't able to be there.'

'If you were with me, you would've been dead. Honestly, don't worry about it.'

'Alright, alright, so what's plan B?' He asked.

'Sit on April's apartment building and wait for the guys to come.' I suggested.

'Okay, where does she live?'

I groaned. 'Crap, I don't remember.'

'This isn't going to be easy.'

"I know." I said out loud. 'It's getting late. They might be on patrol, so let's fly around and see if we pick up anything.'

Elek and I blasted into the sky and scanned the area, nothing. They weren't out. I wasn't giving up, not when we were this close to them. Okay, maybe not close to actually finding them, but I feel close because, well duh, we're in the same state!

Hours later, there was still no sign of them, which shouldn't be a surprise, but I was. Were they avoiding me? Honestly, I wouldn't blame them, if they were. Elek and I landed on a nearby building and Elek went to his own form. I went to the edge of the building and looked out at the lit up buildings. Where are you, Don?

"Don't worry about it, okay?" Elek stood near looking around. "We should head back and look at those files with your dad."

"We're so close." I crossed my arms.

"Not anymore. Just got a message from S.H.I.E.L.D., they're bringing us in for extra training." Elek smiled. "You'll never guess who's going to be working out with us."

"Who?" I turned to look at Elek.

Who can it be? No turtles in this chapter, sorry. Reviews help the turtles come out of hiding. :D
