I don't even know where to begin in answering that question. It's not important. Can I see you? Speaking in person is preferred but I know you're busy.

New York for the time being. Fashion Week and all that, you know how that is. You know where I live, Pym. :P

[And Jan will try her best not to look totally unenthusiastic about all this business as she answers the door. Yay, smiling!] You weren't kidding.

Hi. How are you? Come in~

[But she's trying to smile! Come on, isn't it even the least bit convincing?] You forgot my birthday for one, asshole. [DOES THE TEASING HELP ANY?] Not important, though. I think being the ex-husband means you're exempt.

... look, Tony wanted me to talk to you and I would have probably put this off as long as possible, but he's right: the sooner the better.

Mm, no celebration. I'm old, no one wants to celebrate how old I am. I didn't even tell anyone, really. The people who remembered are the only people I spoke with and that worked out just fine.

It's... not that, actually. [She's quiet for a moment, gnawing at her bottom lip as she tries to sort through all the words that are in her head right now.] It's about me. Well, me and the changes you've made to me. I'm just... curious about something. I mean, I have no experience here and I could have probably talked to someone else, but you're the only one that knows exactly what you did.

What does-- whatdoesallofthismeantoanypotentialoffspring? [All one word! :D] Alternately: would you like to come in and sit down?

[It's a talent, Henry. Don't you dare say otherwise. There's another long moment of silence as she finds herself a seat. It's harder than it sounds, this whole apartment was designed with having plenty of seating in mind. She's just going to go ahead and plop down on the sofa now, shhhh.] ... well. That's relieving. Mostly. I mean, I can handle that...

I don't know what I was afraid of, Henry. I wasn't even thinking about it until Matthew brought it up... I just... I don't want to take any chances. Better safe than sorry, right?

This isn't an attack on you or your intelligence, sweetheart. This just isn't the sort of thing you gamble on. I mean, Tony is the one who wanted me to talk to you. You have to realize that we're just being extremely cautious here.

I figured you would understand that part, at least. [Maybe not the rest of it. Hell, she can't even imagine he's too thrilled about the idea.] Look, I know this is... all sorts of awkward...

Which is your way of saying that you're not exactly thrilled about this, but you're not going to say anything. You're just going keep it bottled up with the rest of it. No, Henry. You don't factor into this and we've been divorced for a very long time now. Your opinion holds about as much weight as anyone else and that's not much.

... but, despite everything that has happened to us, you're my fr-- you're supposed to be my friend. That means something to me.

Sweetheart, I know that life is constantly dealing you a shitty hand, but you're better than all of this. You're better than jealousy. Hell, what's there to be jealous of in the first place? We didn't want any of this, Henry. Remember? We talked about it a few times, each time the answer was the same. We could barely manage our personal lives.

If there were something I could do or say to make this better, I would. You know that, right? Regardless of our history, you're still a very important part of my life. Regardless of where we are in our own lives or how well we're getting along at any given moment, that's never going to change...

It's not exactly anything you've made obvious either. Then again, we haven't seen much of each other lately. With good reason, maybe; I don't know. I guess I can't assume anything with you. I barely know what's going on inside that head of yours under normal circumstances...

I didn't ask you to come here to stir anything up, I do hope you realize that. I want to be able to be friends, Henry. You're the only person who knows what you did. I needed a questioned answered and you answered it. I mean, we're not exactly going around telling everyone our business. I need us to be good enough friends that I can trust you with this. Hell, I just need you to be my friend. If I knew you this was going to upset you, I might have gone to Reed or Hank McCoy...


I have to ask, though: are you and Tony going to get along well enough for that kind of proximity?

Honestly? It wasn't even something I'd really thought I wanted. It was-- you and William, you know? Seeing you with him, it got all of that going. I was jealous. It was just... not an option for us and I was fine with that. When we got married, I really did think I'd be perfectly happy with just you and me. I was young and rich and a newlywed and I wanted to be that perfect little trophy wife and when I wasn't that, I was an Avenger and it wasn't fair to any child to be the parent who was constantly putting their life in danger. What if something happened, Henry? I couldn't force a child to go through what I went through with my mother.

... but every once in awhile? I thought about it. I can't say I never did. Briefly, early on in England, before all the fighting started up again. I always knew you were going to be an amazing father and seeing you with William just proved it-- and then it reminded me that I'm getting old. We all are. All of the sudden, it was just something I wanted.

[There's a half-hearted chuckle, and she is trying, really. She's not really sure how to feel here. It's just an awkward, uncomfortable situation all around.] Well, thank God I have you, huh? I-- I really appreciate this, you know. Tony would never say it, but I'm sure he feels the same way on... some level. [No point in sugar coating it.]

I'll talk to him. I can't promise anything, but I'll talk to him.
